Sneek Peek of Some New Cool Tools

SUO Occasions Mini Stampin' Up Edgelits Stampin Up Embossing Folders

Hello Stampers. . .  Boy oh Boy I'm excited to be able to share with you one of the new cool tools from Stampin' Ups Occasions MiniThis mini will become available on January 4th.  Our new cool tool is called Edgelits and it will make a very pretty decorative edge for your card.

As usual Stampin' Up is always taking our projects up a notch.  Not only can we die cut new edges for our cards but now we have matching embossing folders.  It's a set of three.   So easy and it addes just the right touch for a beautiful edge.

I can't show you the actual pictures of our new dies until the release day but I can give you a sneek peek.  OMG I have fallen in love with this card design.

My colors are Soft Suede and So Saffron with Whisper White.  I used our new Edgelits and matching embossing folder at the top of my card.  See the beautiful scallop that it makes.  My stamp set is Not So Seriously (W123085/C123087).  I stamped it with Black Stazon and colored my doggies with color pencils.  I didn't color them all just a few.  My colors are Olive Green, Sand and Dark Umber.  I also used Gamsol as my blending method.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  I used our matching Tag Punches, some Old Olive Satin Ribbon and a Designer Button from the subtle set.

I hope you are as excited as I am for some new products.  The Occasion Mini will go live on January 4th.  I have plenty of Gift Certificates available for under the tree or as a stocking stuffer that you can use on these new products come January 4th.  Time is passing quickly, contact me ASAP and I will get one out to you.

Upsy Daisy Birthday Wishes

SUO Upsy Daisy birthday Stampinup Up Holiday Mini Sale A Bration

Hello My Friends. .  today we are changin' it up just a bit.  I have a birthday card to share with you right out of our very own Idea Book and Catalog.  My card today measures 4.25 x 4.25 square.  My colors are Pool Party (122924) Basic Black (121045), Very Vanilla (101650).  My designer paper is First Edition Specialty (121878) and a couple of others from our Designer Series Papers.  My stamp set is an oldie but a goodie that i have not inked in quite a while.  It's called Upsy Daisy (111710).  I added a touch of pizzazz with a few embellishments.  Our Linen Thread (104199) and a random button. If you look closely you will find a little sewing on this card.  This was my first attempt at using the zigzag stitch.  I have used the straight stitch several times, but the zigzag proved to be a little challenging but fun.  The tricky part is when you come to your corners.  You need to know where you are headed because you might zig where you wanted to zag.  So this is a heads up, get to know your sewing machine, she needs to be your friend.  LOL  Oh, I think I forgot to mention that I also used our Stripes Embossing Folder (123128) on the face of my card.  I think it added a little character, don't you.

Great new Products Coming in the Occasions Mini

Hello and Happy Friday To Ya.  The week end is almost here.

Kourtney's surgery went well and she is resting today.

Today we are changing it up just a tad and doing something other than Christmas.  I have a case to share with you from our 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.  My cardstock is Pink Pirquette (111351).  I must admit this is not a color I normally use but remember is it a case right out of the catty.  Next is a couple of layers.  I used our Scallop Border Punch (119882) on a piece of Pear Pizzazz and attached it to a piece of PP 2.5 x 5.5 and used our Square Lattice EB Folder (119976).  These EB or great they give your card just enough texture and depth especially when you don't have a dp to match.  My last layer is a piece of Bashful Blue punched with our Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (119275).  My focal point is a piece of Whisper White (100730) 2 3/4 x 3 7/8.  I nested it with a piece of Pear Pizzazz one eighth larger.  My stamp set is Field of Flower (W122760/C122762).  This set is a great go to set when your are looking for florals.  One of SU's best designs.  My inks are So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.  My sentiment if from the same set so everything is right at your fingertips.  For a little more pizzazz I used some of our pretty 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon Lucky Limeade (122977).  This card is very easy to put together.  Add this one to your stash.

OMG get ready, the Occasions Mini is going to be so much fun.  It is just full of new cool tools and matching stamp sets to boot.  I can't show you the actual products but I do have new rubber coming soon.  Here's just a short narritive on some of the new products us will be seeing come Jan 4th.

FRAMELITS. . .  OMG we have been waiting for something like this.  There are wafer thin die cut designs that let you nest your images perfectly.  These are going to be a hot item. 

EDGELITS. . . This product allows you to jazz up the edges of your cards or envies with a pretty decorative edge and now we can even emboss those edges with pretty designs.  Can't wait for this one.

We are even going to have our very own Doily Sizzlits Die Cut.  It's very large and you will be able to cut several different patterns.  It will serve as more than just one design.  Brilliant!!!!!!!

Well thats enough babbling for now, hope I got you just as excited as I am.  This mini is just to die for.  If you are in need of an Occasion Mini and are not associated with another Stampin' Up Demonstor please send me an email with your name and address and as soon as the Occasion Mini can be released I will mail you one.  I have gift certificates available for Christmas so you will be ready on Jan 4th.  Happy Shopping!!!

Beautiful Season and a MOJO Sketch

Stampinup Up Beautiful Season Stampin Up Holiday Mini Occasion Mini

Welcome To SandiesKorner this Wednesday morning.  I got a chance to work on this weeks MOJO Monday Sketch.  I must say that I'm a traditional kind of girl.  I like red and greens, but every once in a while I enjoy other color combinations too.  Today we are sticking with Tradition.

My card is cut at 4.25 x 11 and scored at 5.5.  The card base is Very Vanilla (101650) and my designer papers are from Holly Jolly (last years x-mas paper).

My stamp set is Beautiful Season (W122680/C122682).  I stamped it on a piece of Shimmery White Paper (101910) with Black Stazon (101406).  Very important to use Stazon so your image doens't bleed when you color it in.  I used my aqua painter (103954)  and reinkers to color my image.  Certainly Celery and Old Olive (105165/100531) for  the leaves.  The berries are done in a light pink color and finished with Cherry Cobbler (119788).  My bird has a very light touch of Basic Grey and Daffodil Delight.

I  stamped my sentiment and puched it with a 2" Circle Punch (NSU) and nested it with our 2 3/8" Scallop circle (118874). 

It's not too late, you can still place your Christmas Orders and get them on time, but you must place your order on or before Dec. 14th.  I have Gift Certificates available if you would like to save them for SAB.

Cased Gift Card Holder

SUO Gift Card Holder Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Tuesday to ya.  I was browsing my favorite web sites the other day and came across this cute idea to make a gift card holder.  We all need these at Christmas time so I thought I would make a few for my family.  This idea is a total case from the very talented Diana Gibbs at StampingWithDi.  She even has a short video for us.  Click here to view.

The Crumb Cake holder is just like her's but you can choose to decorate however you like.  My other one is made with Certainly Celery and Baja Breeze cardstock.  The thing that makes this unique is the inside of the gift holder.   It is made from one of our medium size envelopes.

That's it for me today folks.  I hope to be able to work on this weeks MOJO Sketch and built my stash back up.  I'm still tweeking some craft fair projects.  At the craft fair last week there was a fellow demonstrator there that had a great looking setup.  I'm working on making my presentation a little better as well.  Always evolving.  Half the battle is not only great craft projects but how they are presented to catch your eye.  Hope you can stop by and say hello.

One more thing. .   one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator is that we get to see and purchase new products from upcoming publications like the new Occasion Mini and Sale A Bration brochures.  OMG this is the most exciting Mini that SU has had for awhile now.  You are gonna love all the new cool tools and beautiful stamp sets that will become available on January 4th.   Hold on to your seat folks and be prepared to be WOW'ed.  I'll be placing my order soon.
