Magical Season single stamp

Hello! It's been a while! The past few months have been a whirlwind for me. Unfortunately I have not gotten to stamp and share the way I had hoped to. I am still holding stamp clubs and making cards for friends and family but classes have had to go on the back burner. I am hoping this holiday season give me a jump start at the new year!
So, I love all of my SU products and I love to play with new and fresh rubber. I like the single stamps that we sell periodically because it gives me just a taste and I only have to buy the one stamp I love. For the holidays I chose the stamp "Magical Season", the phrase fit my thoughts perfectly.

For this card I also used the d
esigner paper stacks. These are perfect for making my Christmas cards. I like to make my own and with the stacks I get 24 sheets of one design. The sheets are 4-1/2" x 6" so they are perfect for cutting down to a card front size or using on another project. The fun file folder look is done using the new Punch Board. And of course I had to add bling with NEW Frosted Finishes embellishments, these beautiful sparkly snowflakes are just $6.95 for a package of 12.

stamp set: Magical Season
ink: cherry cobbler
paper: Winter Frost designer series paper pack; pool party, smoky slate and whisper white card stock
accessories: silver 1/8" ribbon, frosted finishes embellishments, tags framelits and dimentionals

Epic Day! The new Stampin' Up! product line

I love it! It is so much fun. I love the washi tape and the Epic Day dsp, the colors are my personal favorites so what is not to love? Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Gumball Green and Basic Gray, the colors are beautiful together. I made a few cards for my last stamp club meeting and wated to share them with you today.
The first card features the washi tape. It is so simple to use, you just decide how much you need and rip it off. It is very forgiving too if you attach it to your card a little crooked. You just carefully lift it off and start again.

Stamp Set: Hey There friend (paper pumpkin)
Ink: basic gray
paper: Epic Day dsp; daffodil delight, crumb cake, and whisper white cardstock
accessories: scallop edge punch, scallop circle punches( itty bitty, 7/8", 1-1/4")
stamp set: around array
ink: basic gray
paper: Epic Day dsp; basic gray card stock
accessories: honeycomp embossing folder, paper doily, bottlecap (flattened), and scallop circle punches (1-1/4" & 1-3/4")

This adorable card idea was shared by Barb Mullikin, it is just adorable, she lists the measurements on her site. I love when I can do different things with my one product. It is made from the new pop 'n cuts die, you can use it as a fancy fold or as a gift card holder. The die comes with those little slits and tabs already there so I didn't need to adjust for anything. 
This was made with calypso coral card stock and Epic Day designed series paper. The flower is made from the blossom punch and the 2-3/8" scallop circle punch, the small silver piece is a flattened bottle cap embellishment. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Chalkboard technique card and Introducing Paper Pumpkin

I love this old, but new again new technique. It is so much fun! I think it is the white embossing on the black that gives it so much pizzazz. We made this card at my last stamp club meeting. it features the chalkboard technique and new More Amore dsp. The scallops on the right are actually a doily heart (included in the designer series paper) turned on it's side. The More Amore paper is seasonally valentines but I really try and extend it's use to more than that. I think you can send this cute Hello card anytime.
The red scalloped edge on the left is the new Real Red coredinations card stock, it is real red textured card stock with a pink core. So when we distressed the edge a bit you can see the pink inside. Cute!
The technique is super easy, just emboss your images in white embossing powder and then daub some white ink around them. You can use white ink and clear embossing powder but the look is less dramatic.

Stamp Set: Lacy and Lovely
Ink: versamark (watermark)
Paper: More Amore DSP; primrose petals, pool party, basic black card stock and real red coredinations card stock
Accessories: white embossing powder, embossing gun, scallop edge punch, stitched real red ribbon, pool party seam bunding, and primrose petals satin stitched ribbon.

I have two more cards to show you but I am heading out the door. My babies went back to school today after a three week break and I need some retail therapy with my Mama until they come home. I will post those later this week.

In other SU! News, we are launching a NEW line called Paper Pumpkin. It is an online mail order paper crafting kit program. There is a new kit every month featuring either cards, a 3D item or home decor project. All supplies will be pre-cut and everything you need will be provided, except maybe adhesive. You can order a trial kit and your monthly kit anytime at At the end of the processing period please be sure to name me as your demonstrator. I just ordered my kits and I will share them with you all when they come. For more details visit the site!

Tea Shoppe Technique

Ever wonder where we demonstrators get our great ideas? From Stampin' Up! of course! And other creative demonstrators too. That's what I love about what I do, the community of demos is one of sharing and fun! Most of what I do is an extension of what someone else may have shared. It's a compilation of many things sometimes. And when all else fails, SU! is there with videos like these. This little box is adorable and I had to share it with you. I can't wait to see how you adapt it and make it your own. I can see it as a birthday theme or a treat for a new mom. Feel free to link back a picture to this post and share what you did!

Thinking you might want 20% off of all your SU! products plus an opportunity to have your business pay for itself and even earn a little extra? You can become a SU! demo for just $99! And through September 16th you will get an adorable Halloween shadow box kit FREE.

Everything Eleanor

Here is my last swap card from convention. It features my new favorite stamp set Everything Eleanor. This stamp set has flowers, some scrolling, a frame, and a bird . Soo cute. My card also features a fun fold I saw online that I haven't seen much of, it is a winged card, I think.

This was my Over the Top entry, it has quite a few details to it like several layers and embellishments. I love the colors they are from the NEW In Color collection, Midnight Muse, Razpberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, and a touch of Primrose Petals.

Stamp Set: Everything Eleanor, Fabulous Phrases
Ink: summer starfruit, midnight muse, raspberry ripple and chocolate chip
Paper: raspberry ripple, whisper white, crumb cake and primrose petals card stock; raspberry ripple, midnight muse and summer starfruit dsp
Accessories: scallop trim border punch, 2-3/8" scallop punch, modern label punch, white stitched grosgrain, In Color dahlias, and lots of dimentionals. 

The layers on this card are quite fun. The back layer is 4-14/ x 5-1/2 scored at 1" from each end. The layer with the scalloped edges is 4-1/4 x 5-1/4" scored at 7/8" from each end and then scalloped. The center panel is 3-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 1" from only one end. This last piece is sandwiched between the two panels when you assemble them, with the 1" piece in between. You will have to trim off a small amount in front. 
I really liked playing with this card it is so fun.

So while Convention was exciting and fun it was great to get home to my family. I missed my two boys terribly. Yesterday I got to spend the day with my older son, Rowen, at a nearby lake. He got to paddle around in a canoe and then try out wake boarding, and the program was completely free, woo hoo. He had a blast! And I did too :)
