Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Today I have a sneak peek for you as my pre-order from the Occasions catalog came yesterday and I couldn’t resist using some of the goodies I got!

BloomingHeart_small

This card uses products from the Love Blossoms Suite.  In this card, I used the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, Blushing Bride glimmer paper and the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper stack. (These products will be available to order on January 5, 2016) Paired it with the Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon and some sequins from the Blushing Bride Sequin trim and there you have it.  A little bit of sparkle to brighten anyone’s day.  The sentiment is from the Six Sayings hostess set found in the Holiday Catalog – you still have time to get this set with a $150 order or host a catalog party before January 4th!

I also designed this card using the Global Design Projects Sketch for this week’s challenge – #GDP014  Such a pretty sketch that can be used to inspire so many different types of cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you enjoy a little sparkle in your day!

He’s On His Way

SantaTrees_small

Santa that is!  Playing with some sets from the Holiday catalog that will be retiring on January 4th – if you haven’t gotten them yet – get them soon before they are gone for good!  I loved pairing these two sets together – the trees from Wonderland  and Santa with his Reindeer from Cozy Christmas – a child’s dream come true to see Santa flying through the sky.  The sky is created by first creating a mask for the moon – I used a 1 1/4″ circle and then sponging Rich Razzleberry, followed by Island Indigo, and topped with Night of Navy.   The trees were stamped using Garden Green and Santa and his reindeer using the new Archival Basic Black ink.  I ended with randomly dotting snow using the Signo Gel-Pen.  The sentiment is from Versatile Christmas and is embossed in White Embossing Powder.  I also wanted to show you the inside of the card (as I rarely finish the inside… bad me!) but, today I did:

The inside sentiment is also from Versatile Christmas.  Do you stamp the inside of your cards for a more finished look?

One more item for you, the weekly deals this week include the Big Shot Precision Base Plate – this is an awesome addition for those intricate dies if you own a Big Shot.  For the next 7 days, you can purchase this for just $18.75!  (Plus S/H and tax!)  You will find this great deal and more in my On-line store.

Joyful Wreath

PeacefulWreath_small

Good morning!  Back to working on Christmas cards and decided to try my hand at the wreath from the set Peaceful Wreath in the Holiday catalog.  There are matching dies in the Annual Catalog that make cutting this out a breeze!  The sentiment is also included in the framelit set – a bonus!  The wreath was colored using a blender pen to give it a softer look.  Have you tried using blender pens for a water color feel?   I also stamped the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card stock to give it more of a door look.  Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Birthday Flowers

Butterfly Crumb_small

Good morning!  I had so much fun playing in the Global Design Project Challenge last week, that I decided to play along again.  This week’s challenge, #GDP013 is a color combo – Real Red, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake.  I love this color combo – it is great for Christmas cards (which I should be working on).  But, I also have some December birthdays to celebrate so went with that theme for my card today.  The majority of the images are from the Butterfly Basics stamp set – such a gorgeous set to work with.  I don’t know if you can tell, but I popped up the flowers (tho not the stems) to add some dimension to the card.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out and hope the recipient enjoys it as well.

Santa Wishes

SantaWishes_small

A quick card to share with you made for the Global Design Project #GDP012 challenge.  For my card, I decided to CASE the colors – (tho I changed from Cherry Cobbler to Real Red), Pool Party and Whisper White.  I love this Designer Series Paper – it helps make very quick cards when needed.  I have a hard time just sticking with one card for my Christmas cards – so I like to have a few quick, cute cards that I can whip out quickly.  What about you – do you like quick cards or more complicated ones?

A Sale For You…

Penguins_small

and some really cute penguins!  I was having fun a few weeks ago making this pop-up card fold that Tami White showed me at our demonstrator meeting.  I loved it and decided I had to make some of my own for my swap card for Technique Club.  As I mentioned the other day, this is my favorite bundle in the Holiday catalog – I showed you the Snowmen in my last post – well here is the penguin.  Such fun winter characters that can be used into the New Year.

Well, I started with a comment about a sale!  It is here!  Stampin’ Up!’s On-Line Extravaganza where you can save up to 50% on select product!  How cool is that!

Snowman Set

SnowmanSet_small

I am in LOVE!!  The Snow Place bundle is my favorite bundle in the holiday catalog.  These guys are just so cute!  And the penguin? Adorable!!  Love all the little accessory pieces.  Yes – a little more work – but well worth it!  This little set features a Twisted Fold gift card holder (on the left) and a Hershey Nugget snowman.  I can see making more of these for teachers, the bus driver, friends, co-workers, and the list goes on.  The nice thing about the Twisted Fold card – it will fit in a regular envelope! What a great way to send a gift card to a friend or family.  For the nugget snowman, the hat and scarf are attached on the outside of the cellophane bag – making it easier to fit in the bag!   The face on the nugget is from the large snowman -just use a marker to color in the face and stamp on your card stock.  The nuggets are covered with 1″ x 3″ strips of Whisper White card stock.  (Stamp your snowman details before you wrap the paper around the nugget).

Enjoy!

Flourishes

SwirlCards_small

Good morning! Today I have a quick card using the Flowering Flourishes stamp set. I’ll be making a gift set with this design for the upcoming Gifts Class I am hosting on December 4. These cards are quick and pretty. Add a little bling to the flower centers and there you go! The color combos are Cucumber Crush/Mint Macaron and Cherry Cobbler/Blushing Bride. I really like the Cherry Cobbler/Blushing Bride color combination. Which one do your prefer?

Pine Bough Wreath

Good morning!  Today I am sharing a card that we made at the second Christmas Stamp-A-Stack class on Friday night.  Making wreaths with stamps is fun and easy!  This wreath is made using the pine branches and pine cones in the Berry Merry stamp set from the Holiday catalog and was inspired by Dena Rekow and Oksana Semenski.

BerryWreath_small  I  created a template from the card board found in the Designer Series Paper packaging the same size as my front panel.  Then I punched a 2 1/2″ circle in the template.  When you line up your card stock underneath the template, simply take a pencil and lightly trace the circle.  Now you have the base for your wreath!  Just stamp the pine branches using the circle as your guide.  Pretty easy!  The large pine branch is stamped with Pear Pizzazz while the smaller branch is stamped with Garden Green ink.  The pine cones are added last and they are stamped in Soft Suede.  The flower is punched from Cherry Cobbler scraps with the Petite Petal punch.  Layer one on top of the over, offsetting the petals just a bit.  Finally, add an Iced  Rhinestone to the center and your wreath is complete.  The sentiment is from Six Sayings hostess set found in the Holiday catalog.  Hope you like it!
