I have fallen a bit behind on my posting over the last couple of months, especially from being away in Queensland for most of May, but I wanted to share some of the projects from my April Team meeting.
Above is a project put together after the meet. During the meet we stamped and diecut lots of greetings and of labels in lots of colours. The Many Messages Stamp Set carried over to the current Annual Catalogue and the Many Happening Stamp Set is new. Both co-ordinate with the Messages Die so we had a bit of a fun session creating the ingredients for many future projects. We all now have the right greeting on the right label in the right colour for any project. And you can mix and match them to make a fun card like this one.
We also had some swaps:
Vicki used the Etched in Nature Stamp Set and combined it with the blends and alcohol on vellum technique to create the beautiful panels. She used Misty Moonlight, Cajun Craze and Basic White.
Karen also used the Etched in Nature Stamp set but decided to use completely different images and a stunning black and white palette.
Frances chose to use the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and to create a real WOW fold known as a Pop Up Twirl card.
I missed the May Team meet but they went ahead and met without me which is fantastic. We all enjoy these meets so much and learn so much.
I hope you are inspired by the projects I have shared here. I would love to have you join my small, enthusiastic team. see link below

I wanted to share some of the wonderful ideas that came out of my team meeting last week. Below is a sketch I pinched from Julie Davison. Each member of the team produced a swap card based on this sketch.
The first Card is from Karen.
She has brought together elements from a number of different sets/suits.
Firstly, I was gobsmacked by how she had used the Pick A Punch to create the vertical strips, and added texture with the Woodlands Embossing Folder.
She has also used the Subtle Embossing Folder, for the Daffodil Delight panel, which combines so well with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.
The label is from the Painted labels Dies. The flowers are from the Basket of Blooms Stamp Set, the greeting is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and the stems were cut with the Banner Blooms Dies.
The card is finished off with a few rhinestones and mounted on a White card base, with White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and the flowers are white embossed on vellum. Hasn’t she done a great job, showing the amazing coordination of Stampin’ Up Products?
The next swap card was designed by Vicki. She chose a stunning colour combination derived from the beautiful retired Designer Series Paper; Blackberry Bliss and Petal pink.
I love how she has used the Petal Pink Striped Organdie Ribbon to represent the vertical elements. The greeting is from the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set, which is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on a Petal Pink Circle.
This simple but elegant card was finished off with a single pearl. Beautiful, Vicki.
That’s all I have time to share today but I’ll be back soon with more, including the fun fold.
