A Cute Look With Cheep Talk

Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Filled With Love Promotion New Demonstrator Starter Kit

Welcome Friends. . . I hope you liked yesterday's post.  I had a lot of fun making this cute Valentine' Day Gift.  I think they will be surprised when they open the pouch.   Let's see what can I share today.  I have a cute little card I made the other day using the MOJO Sketch.  It's not quite what I envisioned and I think it needs more inspiration on the left side.  But here it goes anyway.  I used our stamp set Cheep Talk #113204 and what a cute set it is.  My card base is Very Vanilla #101650, it's one of our softer sides of neutrals.  Next up is a layer of Elegant Eggplant #105126.  You can find it in our Regals Collection.  I used a piece of Elegant Eggplant from the Regal Collections Designer Series Paper Pack #117154.  Another layer of Very Vanilla.  Then I chose two different patterns of Regal Rose from out Brights Collection Series Paper Pack #117155.  My ribbon is a piece of Concord Crush #119266 found in our new In Colors for this year.  My focal point is a 2.5" circle cut with our new circle punch #120906.  Stamp set is Cheep Talk inked with Regal rose and Elegant Eggplant.  I sponged around my circle with Regal Rose.  My scallop circle is from a nestie. Now for the tricky part.  I couldn't decide on what to put down the left edge.  I think it needs to be a little larger.  If I were to try this sketch again I would put larger flowers or try even some nested stars. 

If you would like to save a few $$$ and be part of the Stampin Up Family, On Jan 25th SU will be offering a Demonstrator Starter Kit at a 15% discount, plus you will also receive a bonus bundle valued at over $50 in FREE products.  Sandy's Stampers would love to invite you into our virtual family.  If you have any questions regarding this great promotion contact me.  Hobby or Career Demos are always welcome.   

Thanks for stopping by today.  My computer is taking a little vacation.  It's time for her yearly checkup and cleaning, so I could be in and out in the next few days.  Have a great day today.  Toodles

A Special Valentine Gift

 

Stampin' Up Filled With Love Promotion Valentine Defined

Stampin' Up Filled With Love Promotion Valentine Defined

Valentine Defined and Love Impressions Paper Series Pack

 

Hi Everyone . . . Hope you had a grand week end.  I'm feeling a little stressed here.  I made dinner for the family today and didn't get to stamp anything.  So I guess I'll show you a project that I have been working on for Valentine's Day.  I'm thinking about having a class for this special Valentine Gift Holder and matching card.  I used both stamp sets, Valentine Defined WM #121941 CM #123057 and the Filled With Love stamp set WM #120839 CM #121154.  Designer Paper is from the Love Impressions Series Paper #121780.  You can find that in the Occasions Mini.  There's still time if you think you might want the Filled With Love Stamp Set and Designer Papers.  You can click here to find out more of the deets.  This promotion ends on Jan 24th, so don't delay.  Click here to place your order. 

This is a cute little gift idea, I made my gift holder out of Real Red cardstock, Basic Grey cardstock and the Love Impressions Designer Paper from the Occasions Mini.  I wrapped my Hershey's Bar with a 4" paper doily, added my sentiment, wrapped some Real Red Ribbon around it and stamped the heart image in the center of the doily. My card is a Z fold card also using the Love Impressions Paper, but this time I used the Heart Tree image from the set.  My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  On the inside I used our Scallope Heart Embossiits Die #117332.  I also embossed on Whisper White with our Polka Dot Embossing Folder #117335 and punch it out with our Heart Punch #119883.  The I love you is from a retired stamp set.  I know I have probably left something out so if you have any questions please let me know and I will sure try and help.

Thanks for stopping by today, over the next few days I will be getting ready for my monthly stamp club.  Have a great day.  Toodles

    Valentine Tin With A Pretty Scrunched Flower

    Filled With Love Promotion Stampin' Up Occasion Mini

    Hello My Crafty Friends. . . Hope you are doing well this monring.  I will have a short post for you today.  We have Dr's appts. over the next few days and I'm in the middle of my painting.  I really need to stamp, I'm running out of things to show you.  I have another Valentine Tin to share.  It's just like the last one but it has a different belly band.  I'snt the flower oh so cute.  It is made with tissue paper. 

    Here's how I did it.

    • Fold up your tissue paper (I used plain white tissue paper) eight times and punch with your Scallop Circle Punch
    • Stamp your image on each piece, I stamped in Real Red with the Flourish Stamp
    • Scrunch up each piece into a small ball and then unscrunch them.
    • Punch a circle with your 1" Circle Punch. I folded it in half and then half again to get my center and then punched in the center with a 1/8" handheld punch.
    • Stack all eight layers on top of your circle and insert a small brad
    • Scrunch up each layer again, the fluff until you think it look good
    • Easy Peasy!!!!!!!

    Hello Everyone. . .  Boy here we are back again, time sure does fly.  OMG the card I have to share today just takes my breath away.  Excuse me if I seem a little partial here.  This is the same technique that I showed you yesterday, just a change in colors.  I just love this one.  This is this weeks sketch for MOJO Monday 172 and it just fit this folded flower technique perfectly.  If you need to see the instructions for this again, just scroll down and look at them again.  My color combo is Very Vanilla #100650, and Basic Black #121045, My red pieces are Riding Hood Red DP that is retired.  As a substitute you can use Love Letter #117162.  My black piece is from Love Letter, so it would be a perfect fit for you to duplicate this card.  My cool tools are the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch #118874, the Decorative Label Punch in the Occasion Mini #120907 and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder #119976.  And of course you can't emboss without the Big Shot #113439.  My sentiment is from Well Scripted (retired).  I miss Well Scripted and Whimsical Words.  I love the font that SU used on them.   

    Don't forget about the Ribbon Shares, we still need a few participants.  My 2011 calendar is still available.  You can earn Sandy's Stars.

    I hope you enjoyed the card as much as I did sharing it with you.  If you need any of the supplies please click on the link below.  Have a wonderful Saturday and I'll see ya back here in no time flat.  Toodles
