I know that there are a few regular ladies away on vacation!  We are SO going to miss you, but there are plenty of people that are ready to party!

Each person will receive
  • a sheet of dimensionals, 
  • the two new catalogs,

12/31 Stampin Up! Occasions Sneak Peek, You Plus Me Bundle, You're sweet, New Bow Punch, Stacked with Love

Good Morning Friends!

Here's another fun project share to celebrate the new catalog that's coming January 6th.

I love that Stampin Up will be bundling this paper pack and Stamp set together to give you a 15% discount!  {happy dance}!

For this one, i started with a Calypso Coral card base cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" and scored it down the middle at 4 1/4".  I ran it through my big shot and embossed the whole front panel of the card.  I just switched my platform to no tabs, and left the back part of the card out, by folding it under.  :)

next I added a strip of Designer paper which measures 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" and a 1/2" by 5 1/2" strip of real red cardstock.

The real red layer above that measures at 3 x 2 1/4"
and I stamped the sentiment using stampin write markers in Calypso Coral and real red on a piece of Whisper white measuring 2 3/4" x 2"

I punched two real red punches from the new bow punch!  It's really fabulous!  I used a bone folder to gently bend the paper to get the bow to pop up.  I used tombo liquid adhesive to stick it together (used a tiny amount so it wouldn't be all over the place.  When you punch out the shape, you need two to complete the bow and you have an extra little rectangle left over.  I finished it with a self adhesive rhinestone!  Quick but cute!

12/30 Stampin Up! Occasions Catalog 2015 Sneak Peek Hey, Valentine with measurements

Good Morning Friends!

I have a fun project to share with you from the Hey, Valentine stamp set from Stampin' Up! This little pirate is so adorable, and no matter how old your valentine is, I think you could have some pirate fun with this one!  


Base Layer: Ready card base (crumb cake) measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, and comes pre scored at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Real Red, 5 1/4 x 4
Layer 3: 3 x 3 3/4 vellum, heart pattern
Layer 4: 5 1/4 x 1" Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Pack
Layer 5: Crumb cake, 3 x 2 1/2"
Layer 6: Whisper white 2 3/4 x 2 1/4"

I stamped my pirate in momento ink, because I wanted to color his face with blendabilities skin tones.  I used nude, to color his whole face, and added "blush" color to his cheeks.

Next, I used crumb cake, real red, gold, black and yellow markers to color the image.  Although I think the skin tone color of his face makes him look real!  I tied a crumb cake bow and just used a glue dot to attach it to the front of my card.  Easy and fun!  The only big suggestion I would remind you of, if you are making one of these is not to put the adhesive on the vellum where it will show up.  Make sure no matter what adhesive you use, it stays behind the gold foil that's built into the vellum.

Below are some links if you would like to shop for any of these items.  If you are not a demonstrator, you'll need to wait till Jan 6 to pick up this adorable set!  :)  Demonstrators may order it on a demo order.  

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have time to stamp something fun!

10/23 Stampin' Up! Gentle Peace Christmas Card, Traditional

Hello Friends,

After my stampin class left tonight, I opened my brand new stamp set, Gentle Peace, and played.. and played.  It was JOYFUL!

I started by stamping my image with momento ink on a piece of whisper white card stock.  I started with the night of navy.. This card looked PERFECT to color on my facebook group, but when i'm posting it here, it almost looks purple.  Just click the link above to request entry into my group.  I am forever posting creative projects there and encourage you to share what you are working on in your stamp rooms.

The base is night of navy, as is the second layer and the seam binding ribbon.  I wanted the background to stay subdued to really make the holy family stand out! 

I started with my lightest colors and build the darker colors in after by tracing the lines of my stained glass, then blending them.. I used the color lifter to add highlights. 

It was so fun to color and play with.  I just hand cut the image out, which was pretty easy (straight lines).

Here is a pretty solid shopping list of everything i used to get this look.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!
