What An Enchanting Day

Stampin' Up Sale A Bration Fresh Vintage Stampin Up Sale a Bration Everyday Enchantment

Hello Folks. . .  What difference a day makes.  It is cold, windy and snowing here in ole' MO.  We just had temps in the 60's.  Oh welll looks like a great stamping kind of day.

Sale a Bration is almost here and today I have a card to share with you using some great Stampin' Up products from the SAB Mini.  If you have been following me lately you have noticed that I have a lot of samples using the lovely Everyday Enchantment DP Series from the SAB Mini.  But today I decided to shake it up a bit. 

You know how I love to make my own dp paper and today is no different.  I used the coordinating stamp set call Fresh Vintage* and inked it with Poppy Parade and Pool Party.  These colors seem to be the flavor of the month in the SAB Mini.  My Whisper White is a normal background size 5.25 x 4.  I stamped my image in a diagonal pattern, trying to make it look like wallpaper.  For the focal point I stamped my image again and used my nesties for my circles but SU punches will work fine.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs (122495/122497).  If you need sentiments with matching verses this set is for you.

This is the inside of the card

The sketch is from this week MOJO sketch and it worked just perfectly for me.  My next layer is a strip 1.5 by 3 5/8.  I used my fav punch the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402) and layered it with another strip cut at 1 x 3 5/8.  I used our Square Lattice EB Folder (119976) for some depth and texture.  My Poppy Parade layer is 2.5 x 2 1/8 and layered it with a piece of Poppy Parade from the Everyday Enchantment DP Series.  For the bottom I have a piece of Pool Party punched with our Decorative Label Punch (120907).

That's all it takes to make this beautiful card.  Now it's your turn.  If you need any supplies be sure and order from my ON LINE STORE or contact me, I would love to do it for you.  Sale a Bration begins on Jan 24th and ends Mar 31st.  If you have any questions or need help getting the best value for your dollar please contact me.  I'm here to help with all you papercrafting needs.

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.

Mixed Bunch With Fancy Edge

Stampin Up Mixed Bunch Occasions Mini  Stampin Up Sale a Bration

Hello folks. . . .  Happy Monday!  Today I have a card to share right out of the Occasion Mini.  You know that one of our best resources to get your MOJO in top gear is to dig into our Idea Book and Catalog and our Minis.  They are full of resources for color combos, design layouts and stamp set ideas.  Great source. 

My idea comes from the Occasions Mini on pg 17.  I just ajusted the size a bit and tweeked it a bit.  First thing I did was use one of our new Edgelits called Adorning Accents (125595) and matching Embossing Folder (125601) for the pretty bottom edge.  It makes my heart sing when I can add a little character to my artwork.   Love it!!!!! 

Next is the focal point.  Once again SU has given us the tools to make papercrafting fun and easy.  My Stamp Set is Mixed Bunch (125535/125537) and the matching cool tool Punch called Blossom (125603)  My first layer is the flower stamp inked in Melon Mambo and punched, next I punched another flower in Pool Party.  My leaves are from another great punch called the Bird Builder Punch (117191).  Many of you all ready know that our punches are universal and can be used in many many ways.  I stamped my center in Daffodil Delight and added a retired button from the Clearance Rack with some new Bakers Twine Lucky Limeade (125572).  (My Ribbon and Embellishment Share is still available check it out here)

For some balance I though my upper right hand corner needed a little something so I used a Retired Die Cut Bird Blossoms I think and added a stamped Hello from our Hostess Set Posy Punch (122482).  On dark cardstock I try to add a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla on the inside of my card.  Its makes your note or message easier to read, don't you think.  When I make my cards they are normally Birthday Cards, but I sometimes wait to stamp the inside side so I have exactly what I need on hand.

Hello folks. . .  Happy Friday.  Seems we have made it thru another week.  Time is flying already.  Today I have a vintage style card to share with you using Stampin' Ups new stamp set called Rue Des Fleurs (125485/125487).  It is a fun set and you can find it in the Occasion Mini.

The layout is one that you have seen before.  Cardbase is Very Vanilla cut at 4.25 x 11 scored at 5.5.  Next is a Pool Party layer cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  I used our Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder (117335) for some depth.  Next is a strip of Peach Parfait at 2 1/8 by 5.5 matted with a piece of Everyday Enchantment 1/8" smaller all around. 

The Occasion Mini this year is introducing some very cool tools called Framelits.  OMG I'm so happy.  Today I worked with the Labels Collection (125598).  I used the second one in the set and stamped the sentiment from the Rue Des Fleurs Set (125485/125487).  Next I stamped the corset from the set, used inks and markers to color and cut them out with my nesties.  For a little pizzazz I added some of the larger pearls (125605) from the Occasions Mini  on pg 26.  I also added some of the new pleated ribbon Pear Pizzazz (125568).   Don't have to worry about getting your pleats even any more.  Yippie!!!!!

Carry over Holiday Mini

Today I have a Valentine's Day card to share featuring some of the new Designer Speciality Paper in the Occasions Mini.  It's called Sweet Shop (125408)  and it coordinates with matching brads that are included in our embellishment share above. 

My stamp set is an alphabet set Occasions Alphabet (117090/123598) .  As card makers we don't get to use to many alphabet sets, but this one is just perfect for cardmaking.

There are a lot of cool tools on this.  (my moto:  you can never have too many tools).  My doily comes from the paper pack Flirtatious Speciality paper (123360) , topped with two scallop hearts in Basic Black.  I used our Embosslits Die Scalloped Heart of Hearts (117332).  My solid hearts are from the Full Heart Punch (119883),  Just love it when products coordinate for easy design.  My Whisper White heart is embossed with our Perfect Polka Dot EM Folder (117335).  If you are a frequent follower of mine you know how too much white space drives me insane.  LOL

For my pretties I tied a Basic Black Satin Ribbon (117285) around the first layer.  I stamped my sentiment and used some of our Whisper White Bakers Twine (124262) and attached it using one of our saftey pins from our Vintage Trinkets (118764).  So easy.  For some sparkle and pizzazz I also added some Basic Rhinestones (119246).
