For the flower, I used 3 different colors of markers
 to color first and stamp second.

Petal Palette Stamp Set by StampinUP makes cute Thank You Card!!

 
 
 
 
 
This card was made by friend and downline Bonnie A.
She used the Occasions Catalog set called "Petal Palette" (pg. 23)
 
I really liked how she used the Linen Thread & Navy Crinkled Seam binding together.
Bonnie also stamped the thank you sentiment in 2 corners for a nice background.
 
I appreciate you stopping by today and don't you LOVE Bonnie's card?
I taught her everything she knows! (smile) 
Not really, she teaches me  : )  Lori

Bloomin' Love and Heart Happiness Stamp Sets by StampinUP

 I made this Valentine Card for a friend.
The Bloomin' Love Stamp Set is shown on pg. 88 in the Annual Catalog.
All items are current StampinUP except for the retired ribbon.

On this Valentine, the sentiment comes from Bloomin' Love.
I used the same retired ribbon and the current Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.
The heart images come from the Heart Happiness Stamp Set (Occasions Catalog)


This very cute card was made by Kelly I. of Peoria IL
Thank you for sharing with our Stray Ducklings Demo Group Kelly!!
 
If you have any questions about these 3 cards today, please ask.

"Love Is In The Air"-- Stray Ducklings Demo Group Blog Waddle


We have another blog "waddle" for you!!  Please check out the list of all demonstrator participants at the bottom of this post.  You can click on each name and "waddle" from one to another, and view some fabulous "Love" creations from the Stray Ducklings.......


 For my "Love Is In The Air" creations, I used the
Oh Happy Day Card Kit on pg. 15 in the 
Annual StampinUP Catalog.
 
 I made the whole box of cards, but I decided to think
"outside the box" on a few alternate kit cards.
Here is a picture of the card opened up.

Another Valentine idea for a friend.
Again, check out the "Oh Happy Day Card Kit"
and imagine the possibilities for your own creations.

This kit makes 20 unique cards and includes
the Oh Happy Day Stamp Set.


I appreciate you joining us!!
