I have fallen head over heels for the All Dressed Up bundle. A card comes together in a flash when a beautiful dress is on the front. The fabric I've used, Summer Smooches is perfect for showing off this bundle. I've also used the That's The Ticket stamp set and the Ticket Duo Builder Punch for the greeting, which looks great with a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel on it. The stamp on the base of the card is from the Bright Blossoms stamp set, which co-ordinates beautifully with the fabric.
In my next class on Saturday, we will be making a card very similar to this one. I still have some spots left, so contact me if you would like to attend.

This is my first attempt at digital scrapbooking. It was so quick and easy. I used the free 30-day trial version of My Digital Studio and it only took me about 5 minutes. I still enjoy real card stock, stamps and ink, but this was fun too. To download your free trial, click here and select My Digital Studio.

For this card, I used the Summer Smooches fabric to die cut the dress. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, which was punched with the Word Window and then matted to a Crumb Cake Modern Label. I used Rhinestone Jewels for the necklace and on the sentiment. The belt is a small part of Silver Glimmer Paper. The design on the Whisper White oval was embossed with the Fancy Fan Folder. The base card is Real Red.

This is another one of the cards that we made at my last stamp-a-stack. I've used the beautiful new stamp, Collage Curios and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The ribbon is Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon. The label was made using the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set and Four Frames. The colours are Wisteria Wonder, Pretty In Pink and Whisper White.

I'm loving the All Dressed Up Bundle which includes a stamp set and 3 coordinating dies (with a 15% discount if you buy both at the same time!).
I made this card using one of the framelits in the set and Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. I used some Silver Glimmer Paper for the bottom hem of the dress and the belt. The ovals behind the dress were die cut using the Ovals Collection Framelits. The Whisper White oval was then embossed using the Fancy Fan Folder (I love that design).
The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I've used the Word Window and the Modern Label Punch, along with two small Rhinestone Jewels to help that to stand out. The colours I've used are Riding Hood Red (only available while stocks last), Basic Grey and Whisper White.

This is similar to a card made by Andrea Walford. It's one of the cards we made at my last stamp-a-stack. I love that the Secret Garden stamp sets has it's very own matching dies, so if you don't like fussy cutting, this makes life much easier.

I watched a video from a demonstrator in the US, Lisa Curcio who made a card similar to this one, but using a different colour scheme. The effect was stunning and I had to try it. For this card, I've used Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, cut in strips of 12" x 1/4" and stuck in patterns across a piece of Whisper White card stock, matted onto Basic Grey card stock, then matted onto a Whisper White card base. The greeting is from Perfectly Penned and is stamped in Basic Grey ink.
