It’s Almost Fall Ya All

Stampin Up Halloween Happiness Holiday Catalog

Hello Folks. . .  Welcome to Monday.  I made a couple of cards over  the week end.  The one I have to share today is nothing but cuteness.  LOL  I'm using one of our new single stamps from the Holiday Mini.  I know it is August but I think I enjoy crafting the most in the fall.  It's time to be thinking about craft fairs.  My stamp set is called Halloween Happiness (131859).  You can't get any cuter than pretty orange pumpkins all gussied up.  My color combo comes from the Holiday Catalog as well.  It's our new fall designer paper called Sweater Weather  #132184.  Full of rich fall colors, orange, yellow and pale blues.  My cardbase is Very Vanilla, topped with a deep yellow.  I made a rich Early Expresso flag.  My pom pom ribbon was retired some time ago, but it sure does fit in here.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for a little pizzazz and a couple of our new Candy Dots.   

Thanks for stopping by.  I was dog sitting this week end for my daughter.  Let me tell you four dogs is a bit much even for this puppie lover.  The family went to Minnesota for our last softball tournament of the year.  Now it's almost time to gear up for school softball.  You gotta love softball.  LOL  You know I do. Please be sure and look at the Holiday mini carefully, it's full of new accessories and stamp sets but it is arranged a little differently this time,  If you would like to place an order please click on the link below.

Stampin Up Chapstick Holder Polar Party Gift Ideas

Hello Folks. .   Today I have a great Christmas Gift Idea.  I would like to share this cute Chapstick Holder.  I used our Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut at 5 1/2 by 4 and scored at 2 1/2.  I turned it around and scored again at 2 1/2.  My designer paper is Be of Good Cheer (126896) and my stamp set is Polar Party (w122675/c122677).  You will just love ths set, so cute.  My tag is from Beautiful Season (w122680/c122682).  The little gift tag was just perfect for this.  I used markers to color my image.  I used Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding to keep it closed.  I also used three (3) mini glue dots to attach my chap stick.  These are just too cute and great stocking stuffers and Secret Santa Gfts.

Cased Christmas Ornament Card

SUO Polar Party Ornament Christmas Card Stampin Up Holiday Mini Spools Promotion

Hello Friends. . .  Today I'm featuring a darling stamp set called Polar
Party (W122675/C122677).  The card layout for this one is just too too
cute, don't you think?  I originally saw this card layout on Pinterest.
This card is posted on Splitcoast under the name flicflac Mama.  So
so clever, the creativity out there sometimes blows me away. 

My cardbase is Night of Navy, matted with Brushed Silver and matted
again with a piece of Whisper White.  I embossed it with our Northern
Flurry Folder and embellished them with Jewels.  Next I used our
Ornament Punch.  Place it as far up the card front as possible and
center.  I stamped my little bear with Black Stazon Ink and colored him
with markers.  Punched a 1/8" hole with my hand held punch and used
some silver cord (retired).  My sentiments, both inside and out come
from one of our Hostess Sets called Wacky Wishes.  I also stamped
the inside with snowflakes from our Snow Swirled Stamp Set.  Oh I
almost forget add a large Pearl to the top of his cap for a little pizzazz.

Just in case you can't see in the
the bear and his background
are raised with dimensionals.  This
is so cute and is a very impressive
Christmas Card to add to your stack
 If you have any questions please
I'm only an email away but I'm sure
you can get through it pretty easily,
just take your time. I also raised the
Whisper White piece with foam tape.
It worked like a charm.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

SUO No Peeking Stampin Up Holiday Mini $99 Starter Kit

Hello There. . .  Today I would like to share my third Christmas
Stamp A Stack card.  Isn't it cute as a button.  My first two cards where
on the more serious side of Christmas so I wanted this on to be whimsy.
It turned out to be very traditional in style.  My stack is still a work in
progress.  I need a couple more cards to show my loyal following so
they can choose their favorites. 

My card base is Cherry Cobbler and is matted with one of our new
In Colors Gumball Green.  When the new catty came along I was
not sure I liked Gumball Green.  It seemed to green.  Somewhere
along the way I must have changed my mind because I have used
it all and need to order more.  Goes to show you never say
never.  The designer paper is to sing for.  I love this year's Christmas
paper Be of Good Cheer #126896.  It has some great colors and
patterns.  Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!

SUO No Peeking Stampin Up Holiday Mini $99 Starter Kit

My stamp is the whimsical No Peeking set (W126190/C126292) on
pg 23 of the catty.  All four images are just great.  Later I will show
you the tags that I made with them for my craft shows this fall. 
Too cute.  Of course my focal point is the snowman and I inked him
with Early Expresso and punched him out with a 1.5 circle punch non
SU.  For a substitute You can use our Circles #2 Originals Die #114526.
My scallop is from our 2 3/8" Scallop Punch #118874 and I pierced
it with out piercing tool.  For a little shine and glimmer I used our
Brights Glimmer Brads #121006.

I hope you have enjoyed my ramblings today and that I have
inspired you to start thinking about your Christmas Cards.  It's

Something Yummy For The Tummy

Stampin Up Sale a Bration EEveryday Enchantment Designer Paper

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Hump Day.  I have something very sweet and yummy to share with you today.  While browsing our very own Stampin' Up Connection (site for Demonstrators Only, just one of the many perks as a SU Demonstrator) I found this lovely 6 nugget box.  What a great gift for family and friends on Valentine's Day. 

The template for this box can be found over at Splitcoaststampers.  There are many variations to choose from.  I chose the six nugget box .  I used a piece our new FREE  designer paper called Everyday Enchantment from the SAB mini.  It will be available on Jan 24thPlace a $50 order on line or thru me and this pretty vintage paper is yours FREE.  I then cut a strip of dp 3 1/8 x 1.25, attached some score tape and wrapped it around my Hershey Nugget.  My cello bag is a non SU bag.  You can find them at any store that sells Wilton Products.  Next I stamped my tag with the stamp set Occasions Alphabet (117090/123598).  You can find this on pg 171 of your catty.  I added some White Bakers Twine (124262) and attached it to my Poppy Parade Ribbon with a safety pin.  Easy Peasy.   

Kayleigh, my youngest granddaughter still enjoys giving little presents away to people she hangs out with, especially her teachers, so I will be making several of these for her.  She is a lot like her Nana, she enjoys the gift of giving.  I hope that never changes.

Oh, these little nugget boxes will be for sale for you guys that don't have the time to make them.  They will be $6. plus shipping.  I think I can fit them in a padded envelope so shipping would probably be @ $2.  Let me know if you would like one.  Paper may vary.  You can drop me a note here.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly enjoy your company and love sharing my ideas with you.  If you are ever interested in joining my workshop group let me know, we are always looking for new faces.

All Decked in Red – Cool Tools Sneek Peek

Cool Tools Occasions Mini Twitterpated Designer Paper

Good Morning My Stampin' Friends. . .  Today I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you featuring some of Stampin' Ups cool tools.

ATTENTION:  Stampin' Up has announced that the Stocking Builder Punch in the Holiday Mini will NOT be carried over into next years catty.  If this is one of the punches on your To Get List, please note that you still have a few days left to place your order.  Quantities are limited, so I would not delay if I wanted this punch.

For my Valentine base I chose Cherry Cobbler (119685), matted with Basic Black (121045) and topped it off with Whisper White (100730).  I used our Perfect Polka Dot EF (117335)  for a little pizzazz.  Next I punched a Cherry Cobbler strip with our Lace Ribbon Border Punch (122362) and adhered it with glue dots.

My focal point has a lot of layers.  First I cut a rectangle 3 x 3.5 in Basic Black, then matted with a piece of new designer paper called Twitterpated* (125406) which will be available Jan 4th.  Next I used one of our lacy die cuts from the Flirtatious Designer Paper Stack (122360).  I also cut a 2.5" circle and mounted it behind the die cut.  This grounded the lacy circle so you could see it a little better.  Next I used our new Framelits from the Heart Collection* (125599). Boy, I am so happy to see Stampin' Up going in the right direction with these new Framelits.  The possibilities are endless, don't you think.
