Last Sunday I went to the home of a fellow SU demo along with several others. We are part of the same downline group but haven't been together in quite some time since our "fearless" leader has moved to Florida. As part of the gathering we had a shoebox swap.

These are two of the projects we did. The pink is the one I designed. It is actually a design based on the July Sheet Load of Cards design. I love Sheet Load of Cards and for putting together a shoebox swap it's perfect. They've provided all the measurements for you. Just need to gather the supplies and cut........

I did a lot of embossing on this card. I just love to emboss.....The medallion in the circle is embossed with silver powder on silver ink. The sentiment is embossed with clear powder over Tempting Turquoise craft ink. The most fun though was the scalloped strip was stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed with clear powder. I did it on the newBaja Breeze paper and then sponged over the whole strip with Pacific Point ink. Then I took a tissue and buffed off the ink that was on top of the embossed part of the image. The ink will not stick to the embossing it just rubs right off.

I used the new scalloped boarder punch on the two sides of the strip. This is so much easier and nicer than using the corner rounder punch without the guide. I absolutely love it!
These are the projects that one of the other gals designed for us to make. They are a card on the left and a post it note holder on the right. All new In Cololrs here--Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss. I'm loving these colors. I am amazed when the first pictures of them came out that I didn't like them. They are all awesome!The fun thing about the card project here is we got to play with the Big Shot which is a new SU product that will be available I think September 2. IT is a die cutting machine. I doubt I will get one becasue I already have a Cuttlebug. I will be getting some of the dies though to use with my bug! I love them...sign what don't I love. We also used the new stamp set, Pocket Silhouettes. It's a really neat set and you know what from now through September 30 you can get it and other great new sets for 15% off. Isn't that awesome! Interested??? Ask your Stampin' Up Demonstrator. If you don't have a SU demonstrator ask me! Feel free to also ask about the Big Shot and cutting dies.

Tomorrow I'll shar with you a few more of the projects we made last Sunday.

Your card is so beautiful- and so much detail and effort. Wonderful!

I love what you did with your card, Suzanne. And the other cards look beautiful too. I wonder if we'll get those pretty colours in Australia? I also hope we get the Big Shot and dies over here!

If I wasn't already an SU! demo and I loved near you, your SU! invitation would really interest me!! Imagine having you as an upline - what fun we'd have!!
