happy world card making day!


As a big Stampin' Up! fan, I was so excited when I moved to Seattle to find a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in my area who holds monthly Stamp Camps. What's a stamp camp? It's a fast-paced, fun class where a demonstrator helps you make cards/projects using Stampin' Up! supplies. Our demonstrator, Anne Beale Yancey, is uber talented, and comes up with the cutest, classiest projects for us every single month. If you're local, you've got to check out her stamp camps. If you're not, you can see the projects and order the supplies directly from her web site! Many of the cards shown below are cards the Little Birdies made at stamp camp, so you can see for yourself how amazing she is!

We are so impressed by all the amazing cards that were submitted to our virtual card swap by our readers! Thank you for taking the time to send them. We know you'll be inspired as you browse these awesome ideas. Happy World Card Making Day!

I love Stampin'up too and have done stamp clubs for years. We just moved in the summer and I'm too far to go to my usual demonstrator, I'm starting to go into withdrawal!

That was a great group of cards.

Jessica said...

WOW, so many awesome cards! I am definitely going to have to "copy" and re-create some of these ideas!!

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog today so I could come across your blog - it is lovely! I think your header is the cutest I've seen. I particularly love all these card ideas - I'm a card maker myself, but I'm actually incapable of coming up with an idea on my own!

Thank you SO much for including my cards. I love it when others reconize the Arab culture in a positive way. I enjoy making my Arab cards and hope others like them too. I've added your link to my website (acraftyarab.net) and hope we can do other things together in the future. Awesome job!
