Tasteful Trim Bigz Die

Tasteful Trim Bigz Die is a die for the Big Shot and is currently in the Holiday Mini, which will only be available until Jan. 3rd.  But great news, we have just learned it will be carried over in the new catalog that will be released in July.  That means you will be able to continue to order this great die.  I used Curly Cute Stamp Set & Cottage Garden Stamp Set and of course that adorable Designer Series Paper, that matches the Cottage Garden Set, Sunny Garden.



Fancy Flower Extra-LargePunch

Stampin' Up! sells Small Open Envelopes that are the perfect size for 3" x 6"cards.  If you purchase our 12" x 12" cardstock you can get 4 cards out of each sheets.  There is no stamping on this card just the use of the Fancy Flower Extra-Large Punch, the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder with the Sunny Garden Designer Series Paper.


Elizabeth Stamp Set

Elizabeth Stamp Set is one of the a'la carte stamps found in the Stampin' Up! Catalog. This is a very elegant stamp and makes it very each to make a card.  I used a stamp from the Elements of Style Stamp Set and the oval punch for the center of this card.  Watch your mail box, if you are on my mailing list you will be receiving the Sale-a-Bration Mini.  This is Stampin' Up!'s BIGGEST SALE of the year.  Sale-a-Bration starts on Jan. 25th and runs through March 31st.  During this sale every time you purchase $50 or hold a $300 workshop you get an item FREE.  There will be 8 new items brought out just for Sale-a-Bration, plus 69 items that are currently in the main catalog that you can choice from for your FREE item.  The Elizabeth Stamp Set is one of the items you can get FREE during this time.


Lovely as a Tree

Lovely as a Tree had to be one of my first stamps set I purchased when I started, almost 14 years ago as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  It is one of those sets you can use for so many techniques.  With this card I used the mirrored image technique.  I stamped the group of trees on a piece of our window sheets and turned the window sheet upside down on my notecard.  Because the window sheet is gloss it does not let the ink dry, be careful that it does not smear.  Then stamp the image again on top of this image.  By stamping on the window sheet it reverses the image.


Just Believe

Just Believe stamp set is my best selling stamps set right now.  I love bold stamp sets and this set is on the top of my list.  Over the next several days, I will be posting cards we did with this set at my Stamping Retreat in October.  All the cards are done with our Note Cards that you can purchase already cut and scored with envelopes just waiting to be stamped on.  This card uses the New In Color Concord Crush, Jewels Basic Pearls, and of course two of my favorite punches 1 3/8" x 5/8" Oval and Scallop Oval along with Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
