P.S. You're the Best!

I loved this set when it came out in the new catalog this past June and finally got around to using it. From now until March I am going to be trying to do one project out of the Occasions catalog, one out of the Annual catalog and one from the Sale A Bration catalog.
I feel that I really neglect the Annual catalog except June thru August when there isn't a supplemental catalog out there. There is tons of great stuff in the annual catalog that I seem to forget about.
I used flirty flamingo cardstock for this card and embossed it with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder. This is a great embossing folder. It is one of the very thick ones. I know they make them for a great image. But I feel they are so thick I can emboss two at a time which is great when you are prepping for class. I still get a great image.
They typewriter is stamped and fussy cut out. The greeting, sentiment and flower all come in this set plus the splotch in the middle of  they typewriter which is great when you are in a hurry and don't want to color much.
When I designed this card I forgot there was Flirty Flamingo ribbon in the Occasions catalog so I used my Calypso Coral ribbon and I feel it matches really well. The Flirty Flamingo ribbon may have actually got lost on this card.

This was my last card for the Spring Fling Extravaganza on Saturday.

Home to Roost!

Here is one of the cards we made yesterday at the Spring Fling Extravaganza. It was a big hit. Everyone loved this little chicken!!
Do you love him also? He is a Sale A Bration item. Which means if you spend $50 or more you can get him for free!
I colored him with some Stampin Blends. I wanted to do blues and didn't have any designer papers in blue so I made my own. I used the Buffalo check stamp which actually carried over from the Holiday catalog Yeah!!
I used Blueberry Bushell and Sahara Sand for this card. I didn't want to go as dark as Night of Navy and I had totally forgotten about Blueberry Bushell. As I was looking for ribbons I saw it and thought oh yeah Blueberry Bushell. Lets go with that!!
Besides the Rooster this stamp set has some great word stamps with it also!
If you would like to get this great set for free or any other Sale A Bration sets or order any Stampin Up products you can click on my sidebar, contact me or go to my online store here .

Treat Boxes!

Here are my little treat boxes. I put some ribbon and embellishment samples in them and chocolates. They each have 5 yards of ribbon and some of the epoxy hearts. They are about 3 x 4 inches. They are standing on end now so you can see the tips. I embossed one of the Pop of Petal flowers and colored it with blends from behind. Each flower is double layered an then I used a different flower for the leaves colored it with a green blend and cut it in half.
The ribbon is one of the new ribbons out of the Occasions catalog. I have also colored some pearls with a blend for the corners and the center of the flower.
There is going to be one of these in each of the goodie bags for todays Spring Fling Extravaganza.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Years Everyone!!
Here is a fun little project I made today. I made these for christmas but decided to make them up with a new Suite coming out in the Occasions catalog in just 2 more days!!!

These little treat bags are holding an Easter Kit Kat bar. But they will also hold gift cards or other small gifts. I used one for my daughter for Christmas with some Style Dot Jewelry I bought for her. It held a necklace and earring set.

This Suite is the Sweetest Thing bundle and dsp. The dies work on the papers also. How cool is that??
Cant wait to order from the new catalog??? I am collecting orders already! Just contact me or check out my online store here or you can click on the link on the side bar.

I love this new ribbon that is also included in the Suite. As you can see it looks different on each project. I used one side on each.

Best Catch!

This is a bundle from the new Occasions catalog going live this Thursday the 3rd. It is an awesome bundle for those fishermen out there. I made this card for my Uncle whos birthday was this last weekend. He really liked it!
It comes with 9 stamps and also 9 dies. If you get them together in a bundle you save 10%.
In this suite there is also a great background stamp you can see I have used called Crackle Paint. I stamped the images on shimmery white cardstock. It gives it a little shimmer and works like watercolor paper but is nicer. I then colored them with my re inkers and a water brush.

If you would like to order any of these products starting January 3rd or any other products anytime you can go to the side bar to connect with my online store!

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to Everyone! I hope Santa is treating you right!!!! Are you on his nice list??

Here is the last Valentines card for my class next month. I am going to try to use one of the stamp sets out of the current catalog next year for every class or event I do. I feel that the annual catalog gets neglected when the others come out.

I have used the Coffee Café Stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits from the Annual catalog. I have also used one of the ribbons from the All My Love Ribbon combo pack, All My Love dsp, stamps and dies from the Meant To Be Bundle. The die cut "love" is from the Well Said Bundle. The Well Said bundle is a little spendy but you get 51 stamps in the said with great greetings and saying for the inside of the cards plus 24 dies in the die set with lots of words an some other figures. So you get 75 items in the bundle. It is less than $1 per item.

The last item I used on this project is the saying, it is from the Sale A Bration catalog called Part of My Story. It has some great sayings also!

Happy Stamping!

Heres another close up of a card I showed previously. I made it with the Tea Together stamps and matching dies. The stamps are in the new Occasions catalog and the dies are free with a $100 order in the new Sale A Bration catalog both going live on January 3rd.
I was stamping and coloring some of these stamps and then made projects with them afterwords. I used the new stitched rectangle dies that are also in the new Occasions catalog on this card and the gorgeous new Lace Dynamic Embossing folder. All of the items on this card will be in the catalogs. I colored the teapot with a watercolor pencil and wink of stella pen. then I stamped the flowers on top with Gorgeous Grape ink and added rhinestones.

Climbing Roses!

I just love this set! These roses are so beautiful! This is a set called Climbing Roses and it will be available January 3rd in the new Occasions catalog.
I  have colored the image with Blends and then cut it out with one of the dies from the Rose Trellis Thinlit set. This is an awesome die set that matches it. I have also used a few dies from another new set. The  Stitched Rectangles, I love these, but they are not like the other sets, squares, circles and ovals. They are all the stitched rectangles but don't have the scallop dies to match like the others. I have just used one size on this card and then popped up the piece I cut out. This way there are two sets of stitches.

Spirited Snowmen!

I love this set. It is called Spirited Snowmen. I have stamped it and colored the image with Watercolor Pencils and Wink Of Stella. I always like to use Wink of Stella with my watercolor pencils instead of water. It works great and gives it a nice shimmer.
The background is embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and then I put the Gold Paint over the top with a sponge dauber.
I have used some of my snowflakes leftover from the Blizzard Thinlit card I showed yesterday with gold dots on them. Also I die cut the corners from the Dashing Deer Thinlits and put a red rhinestone in the centers. The red rhinestones are also on sale this month for 10% off!

Happy Stamping!
