Christmas Card Class

This is one of the Christmas Cards we will be making on Friday September 5th....I still have a couple of spots available so if you're interested please let me know. This card was made using the "Merry & Bright" stamp set. I just love this little snowman. The little bulb part of the card comes off the base and you can hang it on your tree....cool huh!!



Doodle Flower

This is my take at a card I saw on the web, they had it as a Christmas card which was really pretty but since I don't have my new Christmas papers yet :o( I decided to turn it into a Thank you card. I did use the new Stampin Up In Colors, Kiwi Kiss for the base and Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip as layers. The flower is stamped on Vellum Cardstock using the "Doodle This" stamp set. I cut out two flowers and daubbed on Pink Pirouette and Red Riding Hood to give it some color...used dimensionals to pop it up a little and Voila, a little thank you to send out!!

FreshCut Candle Holder

I found this great idea on the web, can't remember who's post it was from....if you see this and it was you please let me know as I'd like to give you the credit for the great idea.

Anyway, it takes two of the freshcut cards using vellum cardstock on the inside to give it the glow. I used one of the new SU incolors called Pink Pirouette along with some pieces from the Pretties Kit to finish it off. I really love how this turned out


Stampin' Up! Announcement

There is a lot of information being shared on the internet from demonstrators attending the 20th Annual Stampin' Up! Convention, and all of it is very exciting! I can't share with you the new stamp sets quite yet, but I can tell you that from what I've seen there are some great new sets coming out along with some great new accessories, etc....

BUT, I will share with all of you that yesterday's big announcement was that Stampin' Up! has partnered with Sizzix, and they will even have several dies that are exclusive to Stampin' Up! and will coordinate with Stampin' Up! stamp sets and accessories! Over the next several months we will be using this Cool Tool to make some great cards/projects.

I can't wait for you to share in the excitment that is building as we wait for the new catalogs to arrive......
