Welcome, Margaret!

This card was created to welcome Margaret Cruz of Taneytown, MD to our From The Heart Stampers Team!   I love using the Statement of the Heart from Stampin' Up! to welcome each new team member.  But you could use this layout for any card making, too.  Simply place the image you want to work with on the Whisper White card stock.  Here I've used Crumb Cake to begin my card, then layered on Whisper White.  Create this fun scallop border by punching circles with any size Stampin' Up! circle punch.  Use Grid Paper to line them up evenly and adhere to the back of your card stock with only 1/2 the circle showing.  In this card, I used Early Espresso card stock with a layer of Peach Parfait Designer Series Paper on top.  A couple of tags using Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon adds interest, as well as three Gold Brads in the corner.  Line these brads up perfectly using the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool.

Welcome, Heather!

We have a new team member, and I made this card to welcome her.  We're so glad you're a part of our team, Heather!

This card was really hard to photograph because the Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray are such a contrast, and I used Very Vanilla card stock instead of Whisper White for the main image and accents.  I started with the Basic Gray card stock base, then cut a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock (back for sale on July 1st!) to 5-12"x4-1/4" and freehanded cutting the wave at the bottom.  I stamped it with Bella Toile background stamp with the same color ink.  The Border Scallop Trim Punch is also back from the Sale-A-Bration offering and will appear in the new Idea Book & Catalog as well!  To use the border strip on a curved edge, simple punch out a thin piece of card stock then make small slits into the edge that won't show.  Put adhesive on the larger card piece, in this case the Pink Pirouette.  As you carefully bend the paper around the curve, adhering it into place, the border piece will then lay flat.  Here's a picture of what I mean:

The main image is the Statement From The Heart from Stampin' Up!  I love what this mission statement embodies — "To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments . . . in this we make a difference!"  It certainly expresses well how I feel about my Stampin' Up! business!  It's stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool and adhered with Dimensionals.  For the heart image, I ran a piece of Basic Gray card stock through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, then used the Full Heart Punch to punch it out.  I adhered it to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and carefully cut around it to create the border since I didn't have a larger heart that would layer.
