More Downline Cards

Hi Stampers!

Today's cards were from the January Downline meeting. The Kindness Matters card uses a free Saleabration set, "Kindness Matters". It was made by Shelley, and uses one of my favorite embossing folders, Elegant Lines. The Happy Birthday card was made by Bev C, and it features one of the beautiful sheets of DSP that is also free with a $50 merchandise purchase during SAB.

Happy Stamping! Brenda

Downline Meeting Post 2

Good morning! The first of my cards today was made by fellow Witty Stamper, Joan. i love the look of the embossed flowers in the background, and the beautiful watercolored flowers on the top piece. Layers add so much to any card. I am so grateful to these ladies for their willingness to trade cards. We get such great ideas from each other. I would love to have you join my team, and be in on our trades! Just email me at and I will fill you in on the details of joining us.

Here is another of the cards that one of my downline made for our trades this month. This one was made by Mandy. Don't you just love the little birdhouse hanging from the beautiful branch??? i am so blessed with talented downline.

Downline Meeting Share

Hi ladies!

The first card, which uses the 3 flowers from Easy Events was my trade card at this month's downline meeting. The shabby chic look was achieved by using a tool that I hadn't used in a long time. Guess it just got pushed to the back and I kind of forgot about it. (Imagine how that happened, what with all the new Big Shot toys and Simply Scored that have come out! lol) Any way, the tool is called the Cutting kit, and it is really cool, with a cutting knife, a scoring part, and distressing wheelie thingie, and a perforation tool, all hooked together on a key chain. I used the distressing wheel part of the tool to distress the edges of the top 3 layers. I used an embossing folder to make the fourth layer, and note the new SAB ribbon that i used on the side of the card as well as one of our flower brads. There is even a little of the Dazzling Detail in the center of each flower. This was a fun card to make and a great showcase for lots of our great SU products. This card was inspired by one that I traded for at Leadership. if it was yours, thank you so very much! Brenda

Here is one of the cards that was shared with us at our Monthly downline meeting on Sunday. This one was made by Sheila. Love the use of the triple layer punch and the tulip embossing folder. Also I never thought about using the leaf part of the bird punch for a stem and leaves for the flowers! I love downline meeting! Thanks for stopping by. Breneda
