Pals Guest Stamper: Heather W.

Heather Walker, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals and a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, offers a fresh, colorful twist to a rubber stamp favorite–Stampin’ Up! Loads of Love.

P1140454I love how she carried the colors from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (available as part of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion beginning Jan. 24) through to the truckload of gifts.


Open sesame!  Heather’s joyfold card opens vertically.

Her details (layered sentiment, silver brad on the wheel, Baker’s Twine) make the card artful and distinctive!

  17. Every little detail of this card and gift card holder are so inspiring! The truck stamped again on Pool Party and popped up was fabulous, but then there were hubs made of brads too? And overlay stamped sentiment on the card putting the gifts behind it? Over the top fabulous use of a very long-time favorite stamp set! TFS, Celia
