Sunday Showcase: 9 Fantastic Stamping Ideas

Welcome to this week's Sunday Showcase!  Today I have several cards from my Too Cool Demo Team and a few more that I received as swaps from Leadership.  Let's get right to it!

Created by team member Michelle Hoover at Hoover's Dam Stamping.  

What a fabulous all-occasions card for men or women!  Michelle used the Just Thinking individual stamp in Midnight Muse and die-cut it with the Window Frame Framelits.  I love the gate-fold, which is held closed with Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon.  Also features: Comfort Café Designer Series Paper.

1demo - rita bloomin ribbon

Created by team member Rita Berning.

Rita highlighted lots of fun Sale-A-Bration Catalog items on her card!  The beautiful Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (#127540) and satin ribbon from the matching Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (#130812) create a pretty banner embellishment.  The Bloomin' Marvelous (#129654 c, #129651 w) flower was colored with Rich Razzleberry and Summer Starfruit Markers and stamped three times without re-inking.  Also features: Labels Collection Framelits and Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Feeling sentimental - whoJPG

Leadership 2013 swap.  Is it yours?  Let me know.

The images from the Feeling Sentimental (#129630 c, #129627 w) set from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog are so fun!  You could dress it up vintage-style or combine them with more modern colors and patterns like the ones from Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper.  Also
features: Metallic Brads and Natural 7/8" Cotton Ribbon.

Patterned occasions - who

Created by Stamp Club member Vicki Luebke.

It you're looking for a cute set that covers all the bases, the Patterned Occasions (#129624 c, #129621 w) set from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog is a great choice!  The images are adorable and the sentiments are sweet.  This one is colored with markers and layered on a Squares Duo die-cut that has been cut twice to create a rectangle shape. I love the coordinating Chevron embossed background.

Created by team member Rita Berning.

Here's cute window card idea for the Oh, Whale! stamp set created with the Oval Collections Framelits.  The coordinating Happy Whale Clearlits Die makes it easy to cut out the shape and pop it up through the opening. Plus, it also cuts out the cute anchor and fish shapes, too!  Also features: Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper, Word Window Punch and Needlepoint Borders Impressions Folders.

Patio party squares  

Created by Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek at Song of My Heart Stampers.

Quick and cute!  Lyssa used the Patio Party Designer Series Paper for a cute background for the Pretty Petites stamp (#129642 c, #129639 w) from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  It's punched with the Petite Curly Label Punch (#129405), also from Sale-A-Bration.  I love how she used the larger Curly Label Punch to make a tab along the side to mimic the shape.  Also features: Bitty Buttons (can you see them on the argyle pattern?!), and Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Leprechaun shoes

Created by Julie Babcock at

You may remember the Elf Shoes that I shared at Christmas-time…well, Julie used the same idea for some Leprechaun Shoes for St. Patrick's Day!  Great idea!  They are made with the Top Note Die (see my Elf Shoes post for more details).  I also ove the Itty Bitties Punch shamrock shape she added to the Word Play sentiment.  Also features: Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine and Framed Tulips Texture Impressions Folder.

Patterned occasions coffee - j dawn derrick

Created by J. Dawn Derrick at

I really need to create one of these fun coffee gift card holders soon!  I simply adore the coffee image from Patterned Occasions on the front.  Dawn used the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (#127540) and Ribbon & Button Pack (#130812) for cute accents on her cup!  Also features: Circles Originals Die, 1-3/4" Circle Punch and retired Crimper.    

1demo - michelle collage curios

Created by team member Michelle Hoover at Hoover's Dam Stamping

Michelle tried CASEing the same Collage Curios card from Mary Fish that I did for my Wow Class
She used different patterns from the Sale-a-Bration Sycamore Street
Designer Series Paper (#127540) than I did, and got a whole different
look in Island Indigo. Also features:
Fancy Fan Texture Impressions Folder, Chevron Texture Impressions Folder, Argyle Texture Impressions Folder, Soda Pop Tops, Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack (#130812), and Rhinestone Jewels.

1more - leesa collage curios

Created by Stamp Club member Leesa Kern.

Speaking of my Wow Techniques Class, one of my Stamp Club members created a variation on our Collage Curios
project using no stamping at all, only Sycamore Street paper
(#127540)!  I love how it turned out, especially how she used the
designer paper even inside the Soda Pop Top!  Way to create outside the box, Leesa!


I hope you enjoyed today's creations!  See you next Sunday with more stamping inspiration from my stamping friends!
