When I first saw the stamp set Amazing Family in the Spring Occassions Mini Catalog, I didn't think it fit my style of stamping.  But, after trying it out, I have changed my mind.  It is definitely a fun set with tons of possibilities.  I used it to make swaps for some of my roommates at Leadership.  Paired with the Labels Collection Framelits, it becomes a fairly quick card to complete and yet, it still has some pizzazz. 

Leadership Amazing Friend 2013

I changed the cards up slightly, so let me share the second one with you.

Leadership Primrose Petals

Subtle changes provide  a different look.  Core'dinations Card Stock embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder followed by some light sanding with the Stampin' Sanding System, create just the look I was after. 

On the bottom card I used Pool Party Embossing Powder while the choice for the top card was White Embossing Powder. 

Attaching 3 colorful butterflies punched from Sycamore Street dsp (free SAB item with a $50 purchase) with the new Itty Butterfly created some visual interest on my card.  Of course, what self respecting butterfly would be caught without some dazzle – check out the new Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The final touch is a strip of Tangerine Tango ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack – another free SAB choice.

On the bottom card, I changed up the embellishments by choosing to flatten the smaller size new Soda Pop Tops.  The bottom layer in the Pop Top is a 1/2' circle of pool party, which was topped with a  snippet of whisper white cardstock   stamped with the heart image from the new Itty Bitties Stamp set from the Spring Occassions Mini Catalog – love this set with the Soda Pop Tops.

 The final touch was a large bow tied from Pool Party Bakers Twine.
