Perfectly Preserved Just for You!

I spent a fun day making up a bunch of cards with new goodies, including the new Perfectly Preserved Bundle.  Also used Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper.  Fun Stuff!!! Enjoy!

World Treasures

Here is another card made with the new World Treasures stamp set.  The peacock is very striking! Enjoy!

Faithful Friend

I have made several friend cards with the new stamp set World Treasures and they seem to be a success.  It's kind of a modern set.  I love the sentiment, "One of finds a faithful friend finds a treasure."  Enjoy!

Harvest Blessings

Can't remember if I posted this one or not.  This is one of my favorites.  I used Harvest Blessings and new Chevron embossing folder.  Enjoy!

Sending Smiles with MDS!

This wonderful card features the Sunflower background stamp, but guess what?  It was made using My Digital Studio!  The sunflower was printed on cardstock and then embossed with the Big Shot! This is a great idea and I am now just getting used to it.  I love it!  I have MDS and now I realize more of it's potential.  Downloading stamps on it saves space and gives more variety.  I can keep adding to my ever-growing stamp collection, without always adding more physical sets that take up space.  Now, don't get me wrong I LOVE STAMPS and I can't get enough, but this is a new concept that gives more variety.  I actually made this card a Stampin' Up meeting with our group of ladies (I think Becky designed it.)  I love it!  Enjoy!

Perfectly Preserved Thank You

What a perfect way to welcome fall...with a new card made with the stamp set Perfectly Preserved.  This new set comes either by itself or in a new bundle package.  That's right!  Stampin' Up now has new bundles to save you money!  The Perfectly Preserved Bundle comes with the new stamp set Perfectly Preserved and the new Cannery Set framelits.  Makes stamping and cutting out super easy and fun!  I also used the new Orchard Harvest Designer Series paper.  Oh..and I almost forgot...that nice little scalloped edge was made using our new Adorning Accents Edgelits!  Enjoy!

Wonderfall Thank You

I just love the new Wonderfall Stamp set and coordinating Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  Makes wonderful, fun, interesting leaves for any project.  I learned a trick to getting the leaf stamped image perfectly centered inside the leaf.  This was something I demonstrated to my customers at my last class and they also found it to be a worthwhile tip.  Cut out your shape (in this instance a leaf).  Ink up your leaf stamp.  Place the inked up stamp face up on your table.  Then simply line up and they lay your leaf over the inked stamp.  Run your fingers over the back side of the leaf (or you can use your bone folder).  Then pick up your leaf off of the stamp and have your inked up leaf perfectly stamped inside the image!  Works like a charm.  This would also be great for using background stamps on the front of cards.  Helps to distribute the ink evenly.  Enjoy!

Lacey and Lovely

This is a special card made for a friend who is going through a tough time right now.  I actually spotted this card and cased it from another SU demo (but I can't find it now).  I just remember how it caught my eye.  Simple and perfect.  I used the new stamp set Lovely and Lacey and Sassy Salutations for my greeting.  Colors are Rose Red, Not Quite Navy and River Rock.  Enjoy!
