A Whimsy Split Negative

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday.  8 days awaiting for our man in the red suit. Are you ready??????? Christmas can bring a lot of joy if we let it.  Remember back when I shared the black and white split negative card with you.  Well I tried it again but with different colors.  How do you like it?  This one turned a bit whismy, but you know how I like whimsy.  For my two main stage colors I used Rich Razzleberry and Pretty In Pink. with a Basic Black Mat.  SU Garden Whimsy Split NegativeThe striped paper is from Cottage Wall, one of my favs, and the spotted pink is from Tea Party.  For us pink lovers I think SU is missing the boat.  The only polka dot swiss pink paper (wow a lot of words there)  that I can remember is a 6 x 6 pack that I think was a level 1 hostess pick.  Oh well, I'm still waiting in anticipation.  LOL  For the circle use your Circle Scissors Plus and for the Scallop use the Scallop Circle #2 Big Shot Bigz die.  For the embosssing I did use versa mark for my image and then quickly stamped it in Rich Razzleberry and then embossed with clear embossing pwd.  (Don't forget to use your embossing buddy) On the other half I used some pink embossing pwd that SU discountinued some time ago.  Especially check out the sentiment.  I punched with the Modern Label twice and put them back together.  Just like Humpty Dumpty.  I'm so funny today, what's gotten into me.  LOL   You'all know the specials, I won't list then again and again.  Thanks for stopping by today, have a fun and safe day.  See Ya Tomorrow.  Toodles.

Vintage Vogue

Happy Saturday Everyone.  Welcome to the week-end.  I'm off this morning to go shopping with my daughter and try to finish up for the girls.  I hope you got a chance to check out the 12 Days of Christmas specials.  If you're looking to invest in the Big Shot and some of it's dies this is a great opportunity to pick up products at a reduced price.  In the Occasions Mini this year SU is offering a beautiful set called Vintage Vogue with a matching Jumbo roller.  SU Vintage VogueThey did a beautiful job in giving it that worn look that we like so much.  It will be available in the Clear Stamps and will be priced at $17.95.  The card I am sharing today is from that set.  Plelse don't freat if you don't have clear blocks.  SU will be offering them in a bundle pack or you can buy them separately.  When you purchase the bundle you will be saving not only 10% but you will acuatlly be getting some of them for free.  They will come in all different sizes.  Choose the one that is closest to the size of your stamp.  The excitment for these clear blocks is over the top.  The promotion will begin on Jan. 5th.  You are not going to believe the storage room you will have by investing in the clear stamps.  WOW!!!  TIP:  For even more storage ideas, instead of storing them in the CD cases you can put them in plastic protectors and put them in a notebook.  This allows you to thumb thru your notebook and see every stamp that you have purchased.  Easy peasy. 

Todays card I used Close to Cocoa (CTC) and Pretty in Pink (PP), Whisper White (WW).  I sponged the backgrounds with CTC and CC, I used the new Scallop Trim Border Punch, from the Sale a Bration mini, which you can select for FREE when you spend $50 in product.  For my background strip I used the matching Very Vintage Jumbo roller in CTC.  I cut out the flower and used a CC cordury button for the center.    I'm off to do some shopping, thanks for stopping in today and I hope you enjoy the card.  Have a lovely week-end.  Toodles  P.S.  December 15ht is SU's cutoff date for shipping.

The mini's are coming and should be on your doorstop shortly.  Be sure and give it a good look see.  If by chance you do not receive one please email me and I will mail one right out to you ASAP.  I would love to hear from you and be your SU Demonstrator.  Let your family know I have Gift Certificates available that you can use to buy some pretties from the new minis.  Don't be silly and think the excitement is over just because Christmas is over.  Sale A Bration begins Jan 5th.  Yahoo!!!!!!!  It'a a great time for a family/friends workshop and receive FREE STAMPS.  Thanks for stopping by today, have a lovely week-end.  Ta Ta For Now (TTFN)

Another Christmas Card – Patterned Pines

Happy Monday.  Welcome to the start of a brand new week.  Did you get any shopping done?  Time is not standing still only 17 days left.  I have yet another Christmas Card for you.  I really need to get mine addressed.  I did get my list together and now I need to count how many I have to send.  Have you got your list done yet?  So many things to do.  My card base is a 5 x 5.  I love square cards don't you.  I matted it with Always Artichoke and some DP from Basic Grey.  I love the old worn look as you know.  I used the circle scissors plus for my circle and the Scallop Circle die cut for my scallop.  The stamp set is Patterned Pines from the Holiday Mini.  The Holiday Mini will be coming to a close on January 4th.  It will be time to gear ourselves up for the new Occasions and Sale A Bration Mini's beginning on Jan. 5th.  You should have your mini's very soon.  I'm rambling, back to the card.  Inks were Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke stamped on Very Vanilla.  The sentiment is from Warm Words and the ribbon is BB Organza (retired).  Thanks for stopping by I know your schedules are like crazy this time of year, but we will be able to get back to our comfort zones soon and begin those Sale A Bration Workshops.  Whoopie!!!!!  Have a great day and see you tomorrow.  Toodles

Paint Can Gift Set

Happy Saturday and Welcome to the Week-end.  It's pretty chili here today so I guess we are going to have to welcome Old Man Winter.   I don't now about you but as I am getting older the cold weather justs wants to go right thru me especially when I have to take the puppie dogs out.  They seem to like to take their good ole time out there.  LOL  Clear Paint Can Gift for ChristmasToday I'm sharing with you my gift paint can that I made for all the ladies on my husband's side of the family.  We get together every Christmas Eve and play the left/right game.  I read a story about the Wright Family Christmas and the ladies have a good time passing their gifts to the left or right and at the end of the story the gift that they have is theirs.  We have such a great time, they are laughing during the whole game. These small clear paint cans are great for stuffing with little gifts.  This year I have a small candle in them.  I used Merry Moments DP #115672, The snowflake punch #116628. some buttons from my stash, glitter, and for the lid I used a retired stamp set that coords with the Scallop Circle Punch #109043.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a little shopping done.  Time is a tickin' only 19 days left for Christmas Shopping.  Oh MY!!!  SU has mentioned Dec 15th as the last best day to get your orders in to assure you receive them by Christmas.  But remember once they leave SU, SU is not responsible for the delivery date.   Have a super duper week-end and I'll see you on Monday.  Toodles
