Sunday Showcase: Awesome Cards By Friends

Don't Miss—Ends September 30!


Hi Stamping Friends!

I've gathered up some awesome card ideas from my stamping friends to share with you today!  Let's jump right in!

Peggy - stacked presents copy 

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combination: Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Canteloupe and Pistachio Pudding.

Peggy used the images from the Best of Shelli and Best of Greetings Collector Stamp sets.  There are only three presents in the image, so she paper-pieced a fourth package for her stack.  See all of the Best of 25 Years Collector sets, and place your guess for October's theme!

Also features: Perfect Polka Dot Texture Impressions Folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Large Oval Punch, Large Rhinestones, and Rhinestone Jewels.

Jodi - butterfly sympathy copy

Created by Jodi Geers at Polka Dot Stamper.  Color combination: Smoky Slate, Early Espresso & Whisper White.

I love the cool masking on Jodi's card!  First, she die-cut a circle to sponge around for the window, then she used the reverse of the mask to stamp the Summer Silhouettes (wood) images.  She finishes off the card with Papillon Potpourri (wood) butterflies punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch, and a Teeny Tiny Wishes (wood) sentiment.  

Bundle It & Save—Just TWO more days to save 15% when you purchase the Papillon Potpourri and Bitty Butterfly Punch together in the Butterfly Bundle (wood). 

Kathe - birthday copy

Created by Kathe Madsen.  Color combination: Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, Wild Wasabi & Very Vanilla.

I received this card from Kathe for my birthday and I love its collage-stamped style!  She used the gorgeous flower and flourish elements from the Everything Eleanor (wood) and the beautiful bird from Papaya Collage (wood). 

Also features: Baked Brown Sugar Ruffle Stretch Trim.

Marge - butterfly copy

Created by Marjorie Holloway.  Color combination: Rich Razzleberry & Raspberry Ripple.

Marjorie also used the Papillon Potpourri (wood) butterfly, along with a Best of Flowers bouquet, on this pretty birthday card she sent to me.  I have to give a special shout-out to Marge.  Not only is she a super-sweet lady, she is also a loyal follower of my blog, one of the most enthusiastic stampers on my Too Cool Demo Team, and she is in her 80s!  Thanks so much, Marge, for always making me smile!

Peggy - secret garden copy

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combination: Basic Black & Whisper White.

Here's another lovely sympathy card, this time by Peggy.  She used the Secret Garden (wood) flowers and Secret Garden Framelits with a Fancy Fan embossed background. 

Also features: Best of Greetings stamp set and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.

Michelle - gently falling

Created by Michelle Hoover at Hoover's Dam Stamping.  Color combination; Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango & Early Espresso.

I love the beautiful two-tone leaf images on this fantastic 8" x 4" card by Michelle Hoover.  She used the Rock & Roll technique with the Gently Falling (wood) stamp set.  She has some tips for how to Rock & Roll successfully at her Thankful Card post.  I also love the new Expressions Thinlit Die that was used for the delicate word. 

Need An Custom Envelope?  With the new Envelope Punch Board, you can easily create a matching envelope to fit up to 66 sizes of cards!  Now there are limitless possibilities for creating cards in custom sizes! 

Also features: Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon, Naturals Designer Buttons & Linen Thread.

Peggy - best of flowers copy

Created by Peggy Tassler.  Color combination: Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight & Pear Pizzazz.

I love how this entire card was made by one daisy image from the Best of Flowers stamp set.  Peggy randomly stamped the background with the flower in all three colors, which is so soft and pretty.  Then, she stamped the flowers in Black and colored them with coordinating inks.  Use the coordinating 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch to cut out those daisies quickly! 

Also features: Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon and retired Curly Cute sentiment.


I hope you've enjoyed today's Sunday Showcase!  Thanks so much to everyone whose ideas I shared, and to YOU, dear reader, for stopping by my Too Cool Stamping blog!  I appreciate it!

  1. Thanks Angie for your wonderful comments.
    Especially my age. LOL You know, I’ll soon be 85. Not doing so bad for my age, eh.
    Our church is having a Women’s Day in Oct. & the lady head of it asked me to make some blue ribbon awards since I have punches, etc. Took them to her this morning. She was pleased. Was going to quit Stampin’Up the end of Sept. but just can’t do it. Tee Hee

  2. Marge, I’m so glad you’re not ready to give up Stampin’ Up! I know how much you enjoy it and I love having you on my team! I hope you forgive me for mentioning your age, but you are such an inspiration to me! Hugs, my friend! 😀
