Baby Bundle

Here's a baby card I made today for a teacher who just had her baby girl. I used the new stamp set Baby Bundle (wood mount118525, clear mount 120576). I love using the clear mount with this new stamp set. It makes it so easy to line up where I want to stamp something, like putting the baby in the baby carriage. This is a great stamp set for those needing a stamp set to make baby cards or baby shower cards. It would also be great to use on scrapbook pages. I also used the curvy verses stamp set for the verse on the front of my card and the circle scallop and circles Big Shot dies. Enjoy!

Spooky Treats!

I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the new candy wrapper Big L Die (available in the new holiday mini #120809). I purchased it so I can make treats for the upcoming craft fair I am going to be at in Seneca on Sunday, Nov. 21st. I was amazed at how easy and simple it was to use. I made these treats for my daughter's Halloween party at school. It only requires one cut with the Big Shot and a tiny bit of adhesive to keep it together after it is folded. It makes wonderful creases so it folds very quickly. I used the stamp set Wicked Cool (wood mount 118738 and clear mount 120600) to stamp "Spooky". I then punched it out with the large oval punch while my daughter punched out the bats with the new bat punch. I used an assortment of ribbon to tie the ends. So easy and cute! case you are wondering, I put a couple of Hershey's miniatures in each one. Two to three will fit in each wrapper. Happy Halloween!!!

Autumn Days and Kinds Thanks

Here is a thank you note I made for a wonderful friend who let me bring my daughter's Girls Club out to her farm. She has a lot of "country animals" including turkeys, donkeys, chickens and exotic pheasant. The pheasant were gorgeous! Autumn Days was the perfect stamp set to use for a thank you note to her. The Thank You Kindly stamp set was used for the sentiment. Enjoy!

Welcome Christmas and Notably Ornate

This is a wonderful card made by a fellow demo and friend Kathy Nace. Thank you for sharing this card with me! It uses two new stamp sets: Welcome Christmas and Notably Ornate. Both are found in the new catty. She also used Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and the DSP Newsprint! Enjoy

On a Pedestal

Stampin' Up's Two-Step Stampin' sets are awesome for using images to layer like this one, On a Pedestal (wood mount 113814). I used a red marker for the cherry on top and Basic Rhinestone Jewels (119246) to outline the Pedestal. Colors I used were Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose. Enjoy!

Trendy Trees

This is a nice card which can be used for almost any occasion. Another fellow friend and SU demo Deloris Carroll made this. It uses the stamp set Trendy Trees and who can resist a stamp set with trees! My daughter loves these little trees. I think this is a very elegant card and could be used to send to either a female or male. She used the scallop border punch and black and white gingham ribbon (with I think is now retired SU). The stamp set Trendy Trees is a 2 steppin' stamp set can be found in the catalog is a surefire winner!

Vintage Vogue

Here's a simple, but elegant card to send to any friend for any occasion. I, along with a couple of friends, recently attended a swap at my upline's home. (So much FUN!) Anyway, my friend really likes Vintage Vogue and doesn't have this stamp set yet, so she came over and borrowed it. We had a lot of fun coming up with this card. The new Elegant Lines embossing folder was used for the background. The scallop trim border was also used. Vintage Vogue is a gorgeous stamp set and can be used so many different ways. It is available in wood mount 117690 and clear mount 118598. Colors used were Regal Rose, Crumb Cake and So Saffron. Enjoy!

Grateful for Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves is a stamp set I added to my collection last year and I was so glad to see it again in the new catalog. I love it not only for cards, but also for scrapbook pages. It is available in wood mount (115368). This was a fun card to make. I used my circle and square punches to make the design and I love how it turned out. Colors used were Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Dusty Durango (now retired) and Crush Curry (now retired). Enjoy!

Autumn Days and On Your Birthday

I love the colors of fall and I especially enjoyed making this card. I am planning on giving it to my mother-in-law for her birthday which is in November. I cased the idea for this card from Karen Leveille (another SU demo). I saw it on Stampin' Connection. She used a different sentiment on her card, but the idea and colors are very similar. Colors I used were Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive, and Pear Pizazz. And, I don't want to forget...the stamp sets I used were Autumn Days (clear mount 120000 and wood mount 115452) and On Your Birthday (wood mount 111664). Enjoy and happy fall!

Party This Way!

This was a fun page to create. I did case it from another Stampin' Up demonstrator (I am sorry, I don't remember who.) It uses the new Tasteful Trim Bigz die. I used a 6 X 12 sheet of Real Red, Pacific Point and Old Olive card stock and ran them through the Big Shot using the Tasteful Trim die. I used all the strips on both pages of Bashful Blue card stock. I also used the Party This Way and Sweet Shoppe Alphabet stamp sets for my banner to spell out "Happy Birthday". I stamped the balloons and signs "Party this Way" with the Party this Way stamp set and cut them out for my page. Can't wait to add pictures of my son Kyle's last birthday. Enjoy!
