Card Share: Scraplifts from CardMaker Magazine

Each quarter, I look forward to receiving my new issue of CardMaker Magazine. Not only it is one of the few printed card magazines still in circulation, but each issue has tutorials and card examples that even the beginner card maker can follow.

With each issue, I like to challenge myself by re-creating some of the card samples portrayed in the magazine. It is good way to revisit some forgotten techniques and add to my card stash.

From the Summer 2016 issue I selected six cards to lift, this time using all Stampin' Up products.  

Listed with each photo below are the products used for each card that you can find in the new 2016-2017 Stampin' Up catalog. If I used a retired item (I used a couple), I have some perfect alternatives you can get to recreate the card. 

If you'd like to see where I got my ideas from the magazine, plus a few tips here and there, scroll to the bottom of the post to see the YouTube video. 

Don't forget to Pin your favorite card, (hover your mouse over the top left corner of each photo) and let me know in the comments what card you plan to CASE.

If you don't have your very own Stampin' Up demonstrator in your life, I'd love to be your crafty mentor!  As always, you can shop for your favorite products, in addition to downloading a free digital copy of the new catalog at my website:  http://angievallejo.stampinup.net.

Now let's look at each of the cards:
