August Stamp-A-Stack!

Remove Formatting from selection
Hello stampin' friends!

Now that we're well into September, I've finally found a wee hour to myself to upload our last bunch of SAS cards :) I'm realising that blogging is a bit like ironing... if you don't get on to it right away, the pile of cards, like washing, just gets too big!

First up we have a Fathers' Day card, or two versions of it, the other being great for an all purpose masculine card. I love the images form Totally Tool, they're great for any guy-related occasion! I don't know if you can tell, but the Crumb Cake c/stock is meant to be a kind of tool pin up board, storage thingy :)

Next up we have a sweet little card that uses the now retired Flower Trio punch, and the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. A very simple, all occasion card.

The sesame street characters card was a favourite with our SAS stampers, and was made almost entirely with punches! It's amazing how realistic they are! I have CASED these little cuties from a card by the amazingly talented Karen Thomas, and you can see her version here.

Last but not least, was this pretty little 3D flower card. These flowers are deceptively simple to make, and were a real WOW at our workshop. The filigree backkground was stamped with an image from the retired Frames With a Flourish set, and the little dots have been paper pierced for a bit of extra detail. For details on any of the above cards, please give me a hoy, and I'll be glad to share :)

Thanks for looking,

Wow babe, they are all fabulous! Love the tool peg boards, great for 'handy' dads. The flowers on the Pocket Silhouettes is just a lovely card. I figure the gorgeous puffy flower card would look just as gorgeous with a stamp from 'style beautiful' out of the new catty, it is yummy. What can I say, love them all. Keep meaning to have a go at the Punch Sesame St characters, so much fun.
Gorgeous work, as usual!

Lee, these are all just gorgeous. I really love the one with Pocket Silhouettes, I might have to borrow that idea if that's okay. The pegboard for the dads is great, so clever, as is the Sesame Street card and WOW is the perfect way to describe your gorgeous flower. Piercing the frame was an awesome idea and really makes the card "pop".
Your SAS girls are very lucky.
Thanks for sharing :) Xox
