Snowmen and Heat?

Yes, snowmen and the heat don't mix too well, but this cute little guy still looks good inspite of all the heat and humidity we are experiencing once again here in Michigan.  We actually had a couple days where we kept the windows open and had a nice breeze, but that has come to an end.  Oh well, winter will be here before we know it, I'm sure.

This snowman is from the new set called Snow Much Fun (122560 w or 122562 c)  I love the size of the snowmen in this set.
I stamped him on Naturals White cardstock which was cut with the Top Note die and colored him in with SU markers.  I embossed the snowflakes with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  Colors are Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.  I love using non traditional colors.  I'm such a rebel.  LOL!

Hope you enjoy this little snowman on such a hot day!

Delicate Doilies One Sheet Wonder

These cards were made from punched out pieces (postage stamp punch) from a One Sheet Wonder.  I used all new 2011/2012 In Colors.  Very quick and easy cards to duplicate.  How do you do a One Sheet Wonder?  For those who don't know, you simply take a sheet of cardstock (Whisper White was used here) and stamp the sheet completely using one stamp set and then you cut or punch it into the sizes you want to use on your card.  You use the whole sheet and can make several cards with that one sheet plus a base layer for your cards.  If you need more information please feel free to contact me.  I used the Delicate Doilies stamp set (pg. 127) and the words are from the set Happy Greetings set found in the Summer Mini Catalog.  Thanks for stopping by.

Field Flowers

Sorry for not posting for awhile.  The heat and humidity have really gotten to me.  We have had temps in the 90's with a heat index in the 100's and those two things do not mix well with me.  It has cooled off a little and it only suppose to be in the high 80's.  Still hot, but will seem cooler.  I've been staying in the air and doing some stamping though.  My new favorite set is called Field Flowers.  It's such a pretty set and so easy to make it a WOW because it is 2 step stamping.  I haven't purchased a 2 step stamping set in quite awhile and forgot about the WOW factor of a set like that.

Aren't these colors gorgeous together?  They are Island Indigo and Pool Party and the stem are stamped in Lucky Limeade.  Notice the new embossing folder I used?  It's called Stripes.  Attend my Buy One/Get One Open House Sale on August 18 to see even more samples with this set.

Blessings and have a great day!

Another Catty Case

Here is another card that I cased from the new catalog.  It's from page 211.  Not exactly the same, but it's where my inspiration came from.  I actually used the new On Board Merry Medley chipboard from page 191 instead of hoarding it.  I dyed the white baker's twine using a marker.

Fun Gate Fold Card

Well it's almost the weekend.  Don't you just love beautiful summer weekends?  From what the weatherman is saying, it's going to be gorgeous here.  Sounds like some pool time for us.  Even though the weather is beautiful I'm still getting in a little stamping time and wanted to share this card I made with you.  I got the inspiration from this blog  There is even a video to tell you how to make it HERE  Check out her blog.  She has some great projects and her one minute to wow videos are awesome.

This card is called a gate fold card.

And the inside.........

I used the DSP Just Add Cake and the base of the card is Poppy Parade along with Baja Breeze.  The stamp set is Create a Cupcake.  Enjoy!

Ornate Blossom Meets Blossoms Petals Punch

I just couldn't wait to share this card with you.  I was looking at the Ornate Blossom single stamp and was trying to figure out what else could be done with this stamp and all of a sudden a lightbulb went off.  The center of it reminded me of the large petal from the Blossoms Petals punch so I got to work.  I made me an ink pad with a babywipe using the new In Colors Lucky Limeade, Indigo Island, and Pool Party.  I then stamp the Ornate blossom using my made up ink pad.
Ornate Blossom StampI then punched it out using the Blossoms Petal punch

Blossom Petals Xl Punch - by Stampin' Up!Made my flower and to finish it off I added dazzeling diamonds glitter on the petals, although it is hard to see in the picture.  It really is beautiful IRL.  I was actually quite proud of myself since this was my own idea.  I hope you enjoy it and as always all items can be ordered from me or my stampin' store.


Great New Hostess Plan

With the release of the new 2011/2012 Idea Book and Catalog comes a new hostess plan.  Same great perks for hosting, but now you get to choose whether you want hostess sets, spend all your hostess rewards throughout the catalog or a little of both.  You can still get exclusive hostess sets and at an awesome greatly reduced price with your hostess rewards or just choose to use your hostess rewards on just catalog merchandise or like I've already said, you can spread them out over both.  So this means that hostess dollars have increased.  And to top it all off when your party reaches $400 in sales you get to choose 1 item at half price, $500 party 2 items, $750 party 3 items, $1000+ 4 items.

So what are you waiting for?  Let's get your Stampin'Up! party booked today.
