My Dragonflies Have Landed!

I am making a project for the goodie bags for my Catalog Premier Party coming up on January 21st. These sparkly Dragonflies are going to be on one of the gifts. I have used the new Dragonfly dies coming out in the Occasions catty going live next week.
These little guys are much prettier in real life. I have cut them in watercolor paper and then used sponged daubers to color them with Island Indigo and Pool Party Ink. After that I brushed some Crystal Effects on their wings and spread Dazzling Diamond glitter on their wings.  For some extra
sparkle I added a few rhinestones down their bodies.
So if you want a fun gift with one of these on them just leave me a comment or send me an email and get signed up for my Catalog Premier Party on the 21st. I just have a few spots left!
Also if you would like to order some of these great new products you can contact me or order on my online store. I already have a couple of orders sitting on my desk waiting for the 4th to get here!!
Happy Stamping!

Birthday Goodies and a Card!

I went to Olive Garden with my family for dinner last night. We had a great time! Kati didnt want her picture shown so thats why she's not here. But everyone chipped in on my birthday gift and there was a great Pink Flamingo theme going. I have shown one of the great gifts and one of the packages. I looove the necklace. Its gorgeous!!! The gift wrap is great too! There was also pink flamingo earrings, a phone case and a great plaque to hang in my stamp room! The flamingos go great with the pink, white and black theme I already have going on!!
On to my card:
I have used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set for the sentiment and the matching dies with Blushing Bride and Gold foil papers. Also I have used the Falling In Love DSP. These items are all new going live in the Occasions catalog next week. This card is also one of the cards at my sneak peek class next week.
I also used the new beautiful ribbon from the Sale A Bration catty and some new doilies and the Stitched Framelits that are coming back on January 16th.

Happy Stamping!

Pretty Pocket Card Kit!Card

Card Box

Three of Six Cards!

Other three of six!

Box with Cards!
Sometimes I buy kits but then I very rarely put them together. But I saw a video and it made me put all of these together.
This is the Pretty Pocket Card Kit. It is a Sale A Bration item free with a $50 purchase starting January 4th. This card comes with enough items to make 8 cards with 8 envelopes. But after watching Debbies Video I decided to play with this kit. Debbie has some great videos. So check her out. She is great for inspiration! Thanks Debbie!
So like I said it comes with enough product for 8 cards. But if you put two of the card bases together you can make this box! So then I made 6 cards and show in the last picture all 6 cards and the 8 envelope in the box. 
This box is almost the exact same size as a tissue box but just a little bit taller.
I love the colors of this kit. So Saffron and Pool Party. Pool Party has been so popular. It was featured a lot in the last Occasions catty and now in the new one also!
Happy Stamping!

Tie Dyed!

I've always loved tie-dyed things. My daughter used to hate them but having to look at them with me all the time I think has her liking them a little!
This is another new set coming out January 4th! Actually a couple of sets and a die set! This is the Custom Tee and Tie-Dyed stamp sets and the Custom Tee set comes in a bundle with the T-shirt Builder Framelits dies. There is also a great set you in the sale-a-bration catty that you could get for free if you buy all the other T-shirt items called Designer Tee that has great things to put on the front. Actually the Happy Birthday on this card comes from this set too!
So since I loved tie-dyed items and my birthday is this month this card can be a Happy Birthday to Me!!

Rudolphs Merry Christmas Class at Main St.

This is a fun class I am doing at Main St Stamp and Stationary tomorrow!
It was a fun set to make. The gift bag is a perfect size for a gift card. Maybe like one of the ones that comes in a tin. Or you could put jewelry on the inside and tuck a gift card behind the greeting. I only adhered the on the sides just in case I wanted to tuck a gift card in there!

Snowflake Class Samples!

I have completed the other two samples for the Snowflake class coming up next week. I used the Flurry of Wishes Stamp set and punches. I think this was the first time I used the punch and I got it last winter so it is good to use this set. Very fun.
I also used the Frosted Medallion set again. I really love that big snowflake. This time I made a Happy New Years card but it could definitely be made into a christmas card. Or even a thinking of you card or any other card you might need since it is going to be wintery and cold for awhile.
In fact I heard it might snow next week!! A girl can only hope right!!!

Happy Stamping!

Work of Art Snowman!

I love how versatile the Work of Art stamp set is. All of the stamps for this snowman come from it. Its great to be able to make a whole card with one set. Although I didnt show the inside but I believe I used the Tin Of Tags stamp set on the inside. It has alot of great sentiments and even a snowflake so it was perfect for this card.

I will be having a class making three christmas cards with the Work of Art stamp set!
Hope to see you there!

Frosty Medallion!

Hello Everyone!
I hope you all had a great thanksgiving!! We are having two this year so yesterday we had a roast beef dinner!!

I have been wanting to use this stamp set for quite some time. Probably every since it came out in August but haven't had the time!! I found this great card on pinterest. You can find the original here .

I love this color combo and the great thing about this set is it is actually for new years. So since its snowflakes you can use it for christmas, winter or new years. Its a great set!

I am using this card for a new adventure I am trying and will also be holding a snowflake class at my house with more snowflake cards in December!

Hope to see you there!!

Stitched Frames Samplers!

Here are some samples using the Stitched Frames available this month only as a sneak peek to the new catalog coming out in June.
They coordinate really well with the other shaped framelits. I have used all three shapes, circles, ovals and squares and paired them up with the regular frames. I really like how well they go together!
I have used Warmth and Cheer Dsp, with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green on all three cards.
On the card on the right, its hard to see here but is so sparkly in real life. I have stamped a plain white sheet of cardstock with the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set and then glittered the whole paper. So I have made my own designer glimmer  paper!!

Happy Stamping!
