Cards from "PMS" Stampin' Up Night

I made these six cards at my friend Nikki's house on Monday, during our "PMS" night. "PMS" means...Popcorn, Music and Stamps! She is such a great card designer...kinda makes it fool proof. It is so much fun to go to Nikki's and chat with my girlfriends, eat popcorn and listen to some tunes! Each card is posted below close up. This picture is also my project 365 day 229 picture.

This one is heat embossed (white) and we used the paper piercer in the corners. Piercing adds such a nice detail and I always forget about this technique.

We used a stamp set that is a "two step" stamping. I'm afraid I am not very good at this.

We used the water color technique on the pumpkin. The top part of the card slides closed over the orange and covers up the oval.

The tree on this card is supposed to look 3D. We stamped the tree, then colored the leaves with chalks, smudging them and then stamped the image over the previous image using the stamp-a-jig.

We used the crop-a-dile to attach the large eyelet for the swing.

This card was heat embossed and we used the top note die cut.


  1. Aprile every single one of these cards is wonderful. Glad you had fun with your PMS night

  2. Love the cards. PMS night sounds so fun. I want that top note die cut. It looks like everyone is using it these days.
