Sympathy in Wisteria easel card

 Sympathy card for a recent Diva group shoebox style swap. The picture does not show that I stamped on our acetate window sheets for the flower image and the vanilla cardstock behind it is sponged. This is a fun layout to use when you want to showcase both the outside and inside of the card. Easy to make using our new, soon to be available Simply Scored scoring tool (available September 1st). It even has a special carrying bag. The stamp set is the new sympathy set Love & Sympathy 122797 and also uses Wild Wisteria and Lucky Limeade, two of the new In Colors which will be available for two years. Since I got Simply Scored I find myself scoring a lot more on just about any project. It is so quick and easy to use. It even comes with markers that you can insert in the top, much like golf ball markers, to show your score lines if you are scoring multiples of the same item. Just remember September first get Simply Scored. Diva ladies I will have to figure out how to get your cards ma

Convention 2011 Leadership Swap

Card swap for Stampin' Up! Convention 2011 in Salt Lake City. I love the folds of this layout, and I have to give a shout out to Kristi Jalmasco for her layout idea. It is easy to cut and assemble. I did the card in the two different colors. Believe it or not both sheets of DSP come from the same paper pack. The stamp set is one of the new ones from the new Idea Book and Catalog, My Friend, 122587. In return for 47 cards I got 47 finished cards I can now use. How cool is that!
