A Pretty Card Box

Stampin Up In Color Card Boxes Flower Shop One In A Million

Hello Folks. . .  Happy day to ya.  Today I have another craft fair idea.  I cased this idea from Dawn Griffin.  It's a card box holder that will hold approx 3 cards plus envies.  I used colors from our new In Color line (Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana.  My stamps sets are Gorgeous Grunge (130514/130517), One In A Million (132052/128382) and Flower Stop (130939/130942).  I also used our corresponding punch the Pansy Punch (130698), it matches with Flower Shop.  Cool tools are always great to have.  My Happy Birthday comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched with our Word Window Punch.  Cut a paper doily in fourths and cut the strips out by hand.  The inside is blank at the moment, but I could add something at a later time.  For the visual viewers Dawn has a video posted that shows just how easy this is,

Just Saying Hello

SUO Single Stamp Tea Cup Sale A Bration Spring Mini

Hello Folks. . .  Hope you had a terrific Valentines Day full of hearts and flowers plus a little chocolate to boot.  Today I have a super cute all occasion card to share with you.  It's a MOJO sketch, not sure if it's this weeks or a blast from the past but I love it anyway. 

My cardbase is Very Vanilla, seems to be the flavor of the day.  I have matted it with some Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler using one of our new embossing folders from the Spring Mini, the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  My next layer is another piece of Basic Black mounted this time is a piece of designer paper from our Neutral Paper Pack.  Keeping my color theme going my next layer is Cherry Cobbler and a piece of designer paper from our First Edition Speciality Paper Pack.  For some added pizzazz I added a piece of our Polka Dot Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler.  My stamp set is a single stamp from last years catalog called Tea Cup.  Check these single stamp sets out folks, them come in handy once in a while and the cost is reasonable.

My focal point has several layers too, now did you expect anything else, LOL.  I stamped my cup on Very Vanilla in CC and punched it out with our Scallop Oval Punch.  I used one of our Itty Bitty Banner die cuts for my sentiment.  It is mounted on a circle and then comes my grand finale' one of our framelits from the Window Frames Collection.  They were in the Holiday Mini but have been carried over.  There is a whole host of items that have been carried over and you can find them in the Spring Mini on page 36.  To finish the sketch I made a small flower by using our new 7/8" Scallop Punch. Punch three of them and scrunch them up real good, added a white brad for the center and adhered it with a mini glue dot.

Well I think that just about covers it it folks.  I love the look and feel of this card, the MOJO sketch it just great.  Give it a try, I know you can come up with some just as cute or cuter.  I would love to see your art work so send me a pic and I will post it for you.  Thanks for stopping by.  IF YOU NEED SUPPLIES BE SURE AND SHOP AT MY ON LINE STORE It's open 24/7 for all your shopping needs and it will sure help me keep things a float.  Let me thank all of you that have already placed orders for this quarter.  Sale A Bration is a great time to get a few extra fun treats.  Yippie!!  Until next time, have a wonderful stamping day.  Toodles

Happy Day Square Scallop Card

Stampin Up Betsy's Blossoms Comrt Cafe Designer Paper June Promotions

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Tuesday.  Open House was a big success, we all had fun and everyone went home with lot of goodies.  A big thanks goes to all who attended.

Today I have a card to share that uses our new Designer Paper Comfort Cafe' #126898.  I really like the square scallop look of this card.  It's something different.  Here's how it's done.  I cut a piece of Whisper White at 5.5 x 11 and scored at 5.5.  Then I used our Big Shot #113439 and our Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die Cut #115950.  Put your fold just below the top scallop and run thru the Big Shot.  Then I took another piece of WW and cut another Scallop Square and adhered it to the front of my card.  Next is a piece of dp from Comfort Cafe' ( I hope to have new dp to show soon).  For a little pizzazz I used my sewing machine and put a running stitch all around.  Next is a nestie Lacy Die.  With the release of the new catty you will find several new scallop circles like our new Delicate Doilies Sizzlits on pg 191.  My image is the pretty flower from Betsy's Blossoms (W126004/C126006).  Love it!!!!!!  My sentiment is from Friendly Phrases (W126149/C126151).  I used some Rose Red Seam Binding #121884 for my bow and attached a random button with some White Bakers Twine  #124262.  The image is stamped with one of our New In Color Foam Pads, Midnight Muze  #126860 I  know thinking about changing out your old ink pads to the new ones is a little daunting, but boy you will love them.  There is no doubt that you get a crisper, cleaner stamped image with less pressure.  WOW!!

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.  This flower from Besty's Blossoms is going to be one of my favorites.  I also used some of our Rhinestones #119246 for some added sparkle.  Our rhinestones are the best.

Graduating With Herb Expressions

Stampin Up Graduation Card With Herb Expressions

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Saturday to ya.  This week end is pretty big here in Missouri.  School has ended for most and the graduation ceremony's have begun.  I have two today.

I made a cute little You Did It Graduation Card for one of my friends.  I tried to make it happy and cheery.  My card base is Whisper White topped with a piece of Real Red and topped again with a retired piece from Pawsitively Prints.  I loved that designer paper.

I cut out a scallop circle and a plain circle with my nesties and added a cute 1/4" grosgrain ribbon (Temp. Turquoise).  My stamp set is retiring, its Herb Expressions #113224.  I often use this set if I'm in need of flowers with stems.  You can find it on pg 121 of your catty.  I used my markers to fill in the small flowers and leaves.  My sentiment is also retired, its from Mini Mates

I'm off to make some cupcakes for the celebrations today.  Baking is my second love.  I made cupcakes yesterday for Kayleigh's end of school party.  What fun !!!!  I'm trying Boston Cream Cupcakes today.

Betsy’s Blossoms and New In Colors

SUO Betsy's Blossoms  Retired List Retired Accessories List

Hello Folks. . .   Happy Friday, I hope all is well.  I've been playing with some of the new products from the catty that will be released on June 1st.  When SU announced they were retiring all the stamp pads and changing them out to a new foam pad I thought OUCH.  But boy oh boy I'm sold. 

The new In Colors for this year are very bold and striking.  I can't believe the difference in the quality of my image when you use the new stamp foam pads.  Over the years I have developed some health issues with my hands from over use.  These new pads are amazing.  I hope you can tell from my picture how striking the images are.  I barely had to use any pressure at all and look at the great image I got.  Over time I will definitely replace my ink pads with the new foam pads.

2012-2013 In Colors

My inspiration today comes from a combination of ideas that I found while browsing the world wide web out there.  It featues four of the new In Colors for this year (Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green and Midnight Muze).  My stamp set is new and it's called Betsy's Blossoms.  It is whimsy yet modern in style.  My sentiment is from Friendly Phrases W126149/C126151.  It has become one of my go to sets for sentiments.

I used several Cool Tools.  The pretty edge was done with the Adorning Accents Edgelit Die from the Occasions Mini.  Click here to view what had been carried over.  I also used the matching Embossing Folder for a little pizzazz.  For the little flower I used our 1/2" Circle Punch #119869 and for the larger flower I cut it out with our Paper Snips #103579.  These scissors have a sharp pointed tip to get into small areas.  My Designer Paper is also new.  It called Comfort Cafe' and features all of the new 2012-2013 In Colors. 

REMINDER:  Just a few weeks left and we will be saying goodbye to over 300 products from this year's catty.  Be sure and take a little time to go over your wish list and make sure you have everthing covered.  May 31st is the last day you can order.  The new catalog will go live at 12:00pm mountain time on June 1st.

Thoughts and Prayers Sympathy


Stampin' Up Thought and Prayers Sympathy Card Sale A Bration Occasions Mini

Hello Friends. . .  Happy Wednesday, it is Wednesday right.  I loose track sometimes.  Any hoo, what a beautiful day.  LOL  Well I'm sitting here trying to come up with some cute words that will hold your attention.  Blogs can be quite challenging don't you think. 

Let me tell you about the Tea Party last Sunday.  I want to thank all the organizers for inviting me to a wonderful fashion show and lunch.  I met a lot of people and sold several cards.  Yippie!!!!!  They start stacking up after a while you know.  I had some requests for Sympathy cards.  I had a few but not many.  So that is where we are today. 

My card to share with you today is a Sympathy card made with Stampin' Ups Thoughts and Prayers #113252.   It's clean and simple.  I used Very Vanilla as my card base.  Added another small strip of VV and embosed it with our Lattic Square EB Folder #119976.  I love the tone on tone effect, don't you.  I used Early Expresso ink for my image.  Love this tree.  FYI:  You can purchase this tree in vinyl also for your wall.  it's called Decor Elements and SU is discontinuing this line of decor on May 31st.   My ovals are from my nesties.  Unfortunately I still don't have the SU Ovals Die Cut #114525, but it is on my wish list. 

My pretties are a couple of Rose Red Butterflies cut with our Beautiful Wings Embosslit #118138  and the Big Shot.  My ribbon is our 3/8" Early Expresso Taffeta Ribbon.  It's not available at the moment, it must have been in one of our minis.  Great looking ribbon, I hope it comes back in June.

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!!!

A MOJO Sketch W/Spice Cake DP

 Stampin Up Spice Cake Design Paper MOJO Sketch Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello My Stamping Friends.  Happy Friday.  Today I have a shabby chic card to share with you.  I am using this weeks MOJO Skectch and what a lovely sketch it is.  I have made a 4.25" square card for this project.  And I'm using the lovely Spice Cake Designer Paper #124003.  Be sure and pick some of that up, it is one of my all time favs.  My design pretty much follows the skecth right down the line.  I have four rectangles, they are (clockwise) 1.25 x 1.5, 1.5 x 2.25, 2 x 2.25 and 1.25 x 2.  For my focal point I choose the Fun Flower Die Cut #121812 cutting it with my Big Shot #113439.  I just used the smallest flower but I cut two of them.  I curled them with a small pencil and added a crochet flower from Fleurettes II #115604.  Since it was Whisper White and I needed Very Vanilla, I got out my sponge and sponged it with some Very Vanilla Craft Ink.  Worked just fine.  It still needed a little something so I added one of our retired More Mustard buttons and tied a bow using our Early Expresso Baker's Twine #123124.  Adhered it with a big glue dot.  For my sentiment I chose our die cut called Lots of Tags #114508 and used the Stamp Set With All My Heart W118134 C118623.  The sentiment "Friend" just fit on there perfectly.  Oh, I almost forgot instead of using a leaf die cut I used our Swirls Scribbles #113441 die cut in place of leaves.  What do you think?  Cute huh. 

Now it's your turn.  This sketch is very versitile and you can basicly used any sentiment you want.  If you would like to make one of these shabby chic cards and are in need of supplies, please click on the link provided below.  I would love to by your Stampin' Up demonstrator.

Field of Flowers Antiqued

Distress Look Stampin Up Field Flowers Stampin Up Summer Mini

Hello My Stamping Friends – Happy Friday To Ya. . .   Today I have a beautiful card to share that was cased from the front of our new catalog.  Isn't it just great.  The last few posts have been on the whimsy side but we are back in the groove with florals today.  The sketch is a simple one, just a couple of layers and then tilted to the side just a bit.  I was looking for the worn look so I did a little destressing.  My colors are Soft Suede, Early Expresso, Calyspo Coral and Very Vanila.  All the action takes place on the Very Vanilla.  The first thing I did was use our Jumbo Roller Very Vintage inked with Soft Suede, then I took our Fine Flourish Stamp and stamped the lower right edge, just for some contrast.  Next I used our Big Shot and the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder for the edge.  Then I took a sponge and sponged all around with Soft Suede to make it look old and dingy.  My stamp set is Field of Flowers inked with Old Olive and Calypso Coral.  Next I used my scissors and scraped my edges to make it look worn.  I also took out my Spritzer Tool with markers to make it look even more distressed.  My sentiment is from Three Little Words punched with the Word Window Punch and nested with a piece of Soft Suede punched with the Modern Lable Punch.

I hope you enjoyed my version of something old from the Victorian era.  If you would like to make this card and are in need of supplies please shop at my on line store open 24/7 for your convenience.  Just click on the link below.
