Card using You take the Cake stamp set and the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing plate.
Simple card using one word stamp set, 4 different square sof cardstock and flower punch.
Simple card using 4 sheets of cardstock with stamped image in center and stapled ribbon scraps on top.
This was a card we made at one of our monthly meetings using background paper sold at Shop & Crop and paper corners. Sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
I tried to punch cirlces from felt but it kept jamming the punch so I just cut mini circles and attached them as flowers to this $1 stamp I got from Michael's.

I used pre-glittered cardstock, the scallop circle punch and the stamp set I used is Happy Harmony.

Very very simple card using Nanna's Kids embossed background paper, and then I embossed a row of dots under the background paper - don't know if you can see that. And finally I stamped "smile" from the Be Happy Stamp set and then I put a Heidi Swapp bling circle around it and mounted that over one of the embossed circles on the cardstock with a dimensional.

I used Basic Grey background paper and of course, the scallop circle punch. The snowflake is from So Many Scallops stamp set and I just punched out the center of the stamp to reveal just the snowflake. Cute birthday card for someone that has a birthday in the winter.

Very simple card using stamp set: So Many Scallops and the scallop circle punch.

Yet another card using the Summer Picnic designer paper AND the die cut blooms in the mini catalog. I also used a green felt flower in the center from the "felt fusion" tin sold in the big catalog.

I like this card because it gives you ideas on how to use those little plastic flower "sequins" they call them. They all have little holes in the middle to put a tiny brad. I attached the brad to the flower sequin and then attached the flower to the card with a mini pop dot.

This is more of the Summer Picnic designer cardstock. I also LOVE the new striped ribbon in the main catalog. The center of the large flower is a spiral paper clip and then I just covered the whole thing with crystal effects to hold it in place.

All sentiments on the cards are all rub-ons from Stampin' Up.

More Summer Picnic designer cardstock ideas. Love that paper - can you tell. On the "i" in the "delight in Life" saying on the bottom I dotted the "i" with one of the new silver brads from the Hodgepodge Hardware set in the mini catalog. I LOVE the silver hardware from Stampin' Up. It has little details etched into the metal you don't see until you own it.

Another idea using the Summer Picnic designer cardstock. The die cut circle on the bottom is a Cuttlebug die. The apple stamp is also in the current Stampin' Up mini catalog.

Ideas using the large Star punch, scallop punch, 1-3/8" circle punch and the binder page punch. Paper is an older design of one of the designer papers - it is now discontinued.

This is a great idea on using the tag curler so many of you own. Just take a piece of ribbon and attach the tag curler to it and then take a glue dot and glue the whole thing to the front of the card. Stamp set used is "True Friend" from the current Stampin Up big catalog.

Another card using the Summer Picnic designer cardstock from the current mini catalog along with a chipboard star from the big catalog. The yellow dots are dew drops.

If you want to try your hand at sewing on your cards - this card uses the free style technique. Simple card using the scallop punch and the So Many Scallops stamp set from Stampin' Up.

Another one of the projects we made in our April monthly meeting. Stampin' Up is having a Wild Wasabi cardstock special. You get 16 pre-scored Wild Wasabi cards for only $3.95. Great deal!
This is a pocket card you can put your message on the white piece of paper or slip a packet of seeds in to give as a gift and just have the sentiment on the front of the flower. Very easy, cute and simple card to make and send.

This is one of the projects we made in our April monthly meeting using versamark ink and pastel chalks. The rhinestone circle are from Heidi Swapp. This is a great way to incorporate your scrapbooking supplies into card making.
