In the Spotlight!!

This is one of the swaps I did for the "SURubberArtScans" (an online sharing group) Swap at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Denver the last of July-Aug.2. Because the fold is at the top, it's called a tent card. The card itself is square but it will be mailed in a standard quarter-sheet sized envelope. This leaves room for the focal image to extend beyond the top of the card for a different and unique look.

The new In the Spotlight Hostess set is used for this card and the really cool thing is that two of our wonderful new paper punches coordinate with this set: the Scallop Circle and the Five Petal Flower! How fun is that (not to mention easy!!) I also used the 3/4" circle punch for the smaller circles. A strip of the attractive new Designer Paper, Cutie Pie (very appropriate name!) pulls the whole color scheme together. (Actually I started with the paper for my color scheme). If you would like to earn this great set for free, book a workshop asap!

Stampin' Up!'s special for the month of August is the Three For You Punch Box! I received a number of lovely swaps made with this set at the Stampin' Up! Convention two weeks ago and want to share them with you!
The first one above uses the Zoofari set for the main image and then little white punched flowers (which were first stamped with the triple flower from the 9 pc. stamp set included in the Punch Box then punched out). These cute little flowers were then mounted with pink brads to the Designer Striped Paper on the left. Isn't this just adorable?!! Made by Bobbie Ganley of San Antonio TX.

Tempting Turquoise and Black flowers form a grid on this card which is layered on the Turquoise dotted paper from Petals & Paisleys Designer Paper. A dab of white from the Signo Gel Pen in the center and black gingham ribbon are the finishing touches!

Isn't this ladybug just the cleverest thing?!! It is made with the larger circle punches, a little twine for antennas and Pick a Petal wings! The "grass" is Celery Designer Paper and the row of Purely Pomegranate flowers was stamped then punched with the Three for You Punch! Pretty E-Z and Oh-So Impressive!! Made by Claudia Perry of Georgia. (The open punch box is partially seen in the background.)

Close to Cocoa and So Saffron Designer Paper for the background for this whimsical little bouquet of posies in Real Red, stamped then punched out with the Three For You Punch! The words at the lower right are also in the punch box stamp set; they were punched out with the Word Window Punch for a quick and easy greeting! Real Red grosgrain ribbon ties it all together! By Barbara Dondero of N.J.

The next card is a similar design but is a tent card. Rhonda Beadell used the new In Color© Purely Pomegranate cardstock teamed with Certainly Celery for this perky little card with the words "just for you" at the bottom. Sweet!
The Three For You Punch Box contains these items: the lever Three-Flower Punch, the coordinating 9 piece stamp set, three Classic Ink Spots (1"x 1" ink pads) in Certainly Celery, Purely Pomegranate and Basic Black, all contained in a nifty metal storage box with a "window" in the top! When you order it before Aug. 31, you also receive a FREE set ($12.95 value) of thirty Love Notes, 3x3" pre-folded cards in Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron-- all such beautifully yummy colors! With 30 envelopes! Use these for quick cards, gift enclosures or other papercrafting projects! Click here for more information: and call your Stampin' Up! demonstrator to order.
