Paper Flowers

I had a new Product Class recently featuring some of the new products in the New Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.  On page 188 you will find Paper Daisies #119243 a package of 40 daisies for only $6.95.  For this card we colored the daisies with the New In Color Poppy Parade re-inker and water, let them dry and then stamped on top with Dot, Dot, Dot stamp found on page 140 and the Poppy Parade Ink.  Makes for a very bright card.


Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Share

Join us in a Holiday Mini Share
If you are on my snail mail mailing, you should have received the NEW Holiday Mini in the mail by now, if not, give me a call or e-mail and I will get you a copy right away.  Are you like me and want all the beautiful new Designer Series Paper & Products, but the budget says NO WAY!!!  Then this share is just for you, as it's a taste of everything new in the Holiday Mini for Thanksgiving & Christmas.  The mini will post on Sept. 1st and that is when I can post samples.
Here is how a share works, once you order your share & the share fills, I will order the products.  We will need 4 players to get the first share going.  I will receive the products & split them up & either mail them to you or you can pick them up.  I am estimating, that once the share fills, it will be about 2 weeks before your product arrives.  I will give you a time frame once your swap fills.  Your share will include 77 pieces of new paper & product from the Mini and the cost is only $27.97 if you pick up or $32.82 to be sent priority mail to you.

Bird Punch

Got to love the bird punch, really all of Stampin' Up!'s punches there is just so much you can do with them.  By using the negative image from the punch you can sponge and make a shadow.

Card 02

Free Stamp Club Class

Recently I did a special class for customers who have been members of my stamp clubs.  This is a free class I offer to my club members who are club members for six months.  We are starting new clubs with the new catalog so if you are interested in my stamp clubs let me know.  This special  class focused on Stampin' Up!'s bird punch and the different things you can do with it.  I will post samples over the next couple days.  Can't see a bird in this card unless you look close.

Card 01

Another Just Believe Card

Here is another sample of a make-n-take from convention using the Just Believe stamp set.  Love the technique of masking.  We used the negative image from the Circle #2 die for the Big Shot to use for our mask in this card.



Jay's Birthday Card

Too adorable this little shirt card done by TEAM Member Sherm Langan for Jay's birthday.  It arrived the day of our TEAM Meeting and I had already planned on showing the gals how to do the full card shirt card with Designer Series paper, need to do that in another post, so we did this alsoos.


Just Believe

Just Believe has to be my favorite new set in Stampin' Up!'s Idea Book & Catalog this year.  We received this set free at convention and this was one of our make-n-takes.  Have to admit I don't use watercolor paper enough.  Love the look and the color combination of this card.
