Stampin’ Pretty Pals Card Ideas

I love sharing the work of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals (my Stampin’ Up! virtual community of hobby stampers and business demonstrators).  Enjoy the beautiful colors and texture of each card and have a wonderful, inspired weekend!

Ginger Toivonen used  both the Stampin’ Up! Chevron and Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to create this stunning card.  The brave color mix is right up my alley!

Marivic Lebardo embossed the entire front of the card base with the Stampin’ Up! Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Simple and pretty.

IMG_2702-001Tracy Baird does an amazing job creating texture with her bold, chevron stripes.  They really stand out against the white background.

Pam Dotts mixes it up with two different Stampin’ Up! Embossing Folders, Perfect Polka Dots and Elegant Lines.

Do you ever wish you could purchase a single stamp from a larger set?

    What’s the color combo of Ginger’s card? It’s hard to tell because I can’t find that color ribbon in the catalog. I really would love to CASE that color combo. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Love each of the cards made by your Stampin Pretty Pals – but my favorite is the card that Ginger made. The color combination is SUPER FUN and I’m going to have to try those colors together for myself soon. MANY THANKS for sharing and please let your Pals know their work is AMAZING! WELL DONE FRIENDS!

  13. Lavender is my fav….so I gravitated towards the last card, of course. Interesting and inspirational at the same time. You Go Girls!!
