I just heard that the free tote for $150 hostesses is running low.  If you have a $150 order and want a tote, get it to me today.  (You also will get 3 free SAB items!)  Or they are offering some other choices – one of which is the very popular Nautical Expedition DSP from […]

The Rue De Fleurs stamp set is an interesting steampunk style offering.  I’m not sure about the Victorian corset and “thanks for your support”, but I do really like the pen and trumpet and adapted them to my own favorite style – clean and simple.  Only 2 days left of Sale-A-Bration!

Mouthwatering is another new set in the Occasions minicatalog that will be fun to play with as summer approaches.  You will want to get the scented embossing powders too.  Yum!  The best way to get different colors on these stamps is to use your Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then use your Versamark pen to emboss.   I […]

Easter Flowers

This Clean and Simple Easter card was inspired by a Pinterest pin.  I revamped it with all Stampin’ Up! supplies:  Delightful Dozen stamp set, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Pearls, Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack.  Only 4 days left of Sale-A-Bration!

Loved Ones

Posted: Monday, March 26th, 2012 @ 3:17 pm in Projects | No Comments »

The Loved Ones stamp set (occasions minicatalog) paired nicely with Mixed Bunch and the Blossom Punch for this card.  I used the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details ($2.50) to add a bit of sparkle to the flower center.  Don’t forget to pick that up when you place your last Sale-a-Bration order – less than a week […]

Loving Thoughts

Posted: Saturday, March 24th, 2012 @ 9:24 am in Projects | No Comments »

The Loving Thoughts sentiment set is one of my favorites from the Occasions minicatalog.  I also used the Hello Doily stamp (love that name!), the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Pool Party ribbon.   This would make a pretty wedding card.   Only one week left of Sale-A-Bration!

Adorning Accents

The Adorning Accents Edgelits and Folders look really sharp on the insert to this pocket card.  Stamp set is Loving Thoughts.  This card is easy to make – just cut the cardstock the long way, fold in half, cut one half of one section on the diagonal, flip over and reattach to form the pocket.  […]

Mixed Bunch

The Mixed Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom punch have been popular choices for my customers.  Here are a few more ideas to try.  It’s paired with the Loving Thoughts and Kindness Matters sentiments. This last card is embossed in white and then sponged with Pool Party ink.

Folded Tea and Treat Holder Tutorial

Here is the treat holder I learned to make at the San Antonio Regional Conference.  No adhesive needed – just folding and ribbon.  We will be making this at stamp class tomorrow – there’s still time to RSVP!  There are 2 pockets for tea bags (and a bookmark), and you can slip a cello bag […]

Negative Punch

Posted: Saturday, March 17th, 2012 @ 9:04 am in Projects | No Comments »

Here’s an interesting layout I found using the negative of the blossom punch for the base of the card, with a piece of designer paper beneath it to make the flowers pop.  The sentiment is from the Loved Ones stamp set in the Occasions mini.
