Hostess Set and New Designer Paper

SUO Faith in Hope Hostess Set Buy 3 Get 1 Free Promotion, Summer Mini

Hello My Stamping Friends, Happy Monday.  Boy oh Boy, I have fallen in love with some new designer paper called Spice Cake.  You will find it in the new Holiday Mini,  that will be released on Sept 1st.  The colors are just fantastic, especially if you are a fan of rich fall colors like More Mustard, Soft Suede, River Rock, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla.  Today I'm using Spice Cake dp and a hostess set called Faith in Nature.  Faith In Nature is a great set to have in your collection.  It's one of those sets that can be used for just about any occasion.  My card base is Early Expresso and it is matted with Spice Cake dp.  I used one of our new punches for this year, the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.  Did you notice that I was able to weave a 1/4" More Mustard Grosgrain Ribbon thru some of the openings for just a touch of pizzazz.  Unfortunately More Mustard is not being offered this year in the 1/4" group of ribbons, but anyone will do.  Yippie!!!  I stamped my image on Very Vanilla with Black Stazon.  Gave it a touch of watercoloring and mounted it on some ovals.  Oh, Oh another exciting product in the Holiday Mini is this new Quilted Satin Ribbon.  It will come in two colors Early Expresso, and Cherry Cobbler.  You're gonna love it!!!!!!!!  

I hope you enjoyed my project today.  I guess you could say that it is a clean and simple card that packs a big punch.  If you would like to order any of these supplies you can shop in my on line store here.  Spice Cake dp will be available on Sept 1st from the Holiday Mini.  Also the stamp set is a hostess set.  Place an order or have a workshop with me for $150 and you can purchase this set with your hostess dollars plus have some left over for even more great Stampin' Up stuff.

The Art of Quilling

In colors 2011-2012 Holiday Mini Buy 3 DP Get 1 Free

Hello My Stamping Friends, Good Morning To Ya.  A couple of days ago I was going thru my Stampin' Success magazine looking for ideas, and viola' I came across an article about paper quilling.  Now this is an old art that has been around a long time, but thru the years its seems to surface and come back alive again.  Quilling is done with a 1/8" strip of paper.  It can be cardstock or designer paper.  The only cool tool that you need is your paper piercer or you can purchase a quilling tool.  But for today I'm using my paper piercer.  All you need to do is wrap the end of your paper around your piercer and start rolling.  Roll it to the end of your strip and you will have a curled circle.  When you let go of your circle it springs back and forms loose circles.  For todays project that is just what I did.  For a little more stability I did glue my circle to a punched circle and for a little more pizzazz I adhered my circle to a smashed bottle cap.  My flower leaves are dp punched with the Bird Punch and adhered with mini glue dots.  My sketch is from this weeks MOJO Monday Sketch.  Colors that I used are the new In Colors for this year, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral and Pool Party.  For my decorative edges I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch and my Postage Stamp Scissors.  Added some pretty White Stain Ribbon and for my sentiment I used the stamp set Fabulous Phrases

I hope you enjoyed my project for today.  If you would like to case my card and are in need of supplies please click here for my on line store.

My Dear Friend

Stampin Up Snow Much Fun Holiday Mini

Hello Folks, Happy Friday and welcome to SandiesKorner.  I don't have a card for you today.  But let me asure you I'm working hard.  LOL  Today I would like to share a card with you that was sent to me from my dear friend Nancy.  Let's put our hands together and give Nancy a big shout out round of applause, she did a wonderful job on this one.  The stamp set is Snow Much Fun #122562.  As fall and winter approach this stamp set is going to be the rage, it is so darn cute. 

From looking at it, it looks like she used Crumb Cake as her base with some matching DP.  Snowflakes were stamped with White Craft Ink on the top half of the card.  The snowman was colored with markers.  For a little pizzazz she used her Big Shot and the Northern Frost Strip Die Cut for the snowflakes, added a button and matching Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon.  The Top Note was also used as part of her focal point.  This could be one of your Christmas Cards.  It's never to early.

Stampin' Up Button Buddies Stampin' Up Summer Mini Buy 3 Get One FREE

Hi There Everyone. . . hope you're having an amazing morning.  I was MIA yesterday, but I have a great looking card to share with you today.  It measures just 4.25  square but packs a big punch.  My base is Whisper White.  I pulled out a punch that I haven't used in a while, it's called the Eyelet Border Punch and punched the right side of my card.  I also made a mirror image on the inside of my card using Rich Razzleberry.  I saw this layout on Julee's blog Poetic Artistry.  She is a very talented lady I love all her work.  For my focal point I cut two 3.25 inch squares, one in Whisper White and the other is Rich Razzleberry.  Next I made a scallop rectangle with my fav, the Scallop Trim Border Punch and Scallop Corner Punch.  My stamp set is A Word For You #120528.  My flower is from my newest set Button Buddies.  Oh so cute, be sure and check it out #122737.  For my leaves I used some Old Olive dp and punched them with the Bird Punch.  The floral in Button Buddies just happens to coordinate with our Scallop Circle Punch.  Oh how I love my punches.  Good tools are the key to making beautiful papercrafts.  This card didn't need any ribbon, but I did add some Rhinestones for just the right sparkle.

Oh So Cute Button Buddies

Stampin' Ups Button Buddies Birthday Card Stampin Up Summer Mini Buy 3 Get One FREE Designer Paper Offer

Hello My Stamping Friends.  Welcome to Monday.  Hope all was well over the week end.  We had a pretty super duper one here.

Today I have a card to share using a new stamp set called Button Buddies W122735 C122737.  It is so very cute.  It has a lot of cute images but my first pick was the little piggy.  My color combo is Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and Pretty In Pink.  I did my normal layering but on my Pretty In Pink layer I used a new embossing folder called Stripes #123128.  I cut my strip of Wisteria Wonder at 1 3/4 x 5 and used my favorite border punch the Scallop Trim Border Punch #118402.  It is just so darn pretty.  TIP:  If you like for your scallops to be even on both ends try cutting your strip a little longer than you need.  Match your ends as best as you can, adhere, then trim off your ends.  This way gives you a better chance of having your scallops match on both ends.  My little piggy was stamped on a 2.5 inch square and layered accordingly.  My sentiment comes from the Pennant Parade stamp set W122740 C122742.  Then I punched it out with the 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches.  My little piggy looked a little naked so I went ahead and pierced around it using my piercer and mat pack.  Added some pretties,  Jewels #119246 and some of the great looking 3/8" Wistera Wonder ruffled ribbon #122973Oh another tip:  I love the look of a real button, but they sometimes don't mail very good.  Stampin' Up has a great looking faux button die cut called Buttons #5.  You can find it on pg 224 of your catty.

If you would like to make this card and are in need of supplies please shop at my on line store.  It's open 24/7 for your convenience.  If you have any questions please let me know, I'm just an email away.
