Wishing you card SC454

Hi there!   Working on my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack cards and loved the Sketch Challenge that has out.   The sketch is a simple layout and can be used for any occasion!  :)

The Season of Style Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape work so well together.    If you haven't had a chance to play with our new Washi Tapes, you really need to try it.   They are SO addicting!!  They are very easy to tear but you can cut if it you need a "clean edge" AND you can stamp on the tape.   What a FUN new embellishment!   

There are several "themed" sets in our catalogs:  Witches' Brew (Item#132156) Season of Style (Item#132155); Epic Day (Item#131269) and Gingham Garden (Item#129314).   Each only $4.95 (three designers per set).

Snow Day - FMS104

Back in the craft room after a very busy week getting prepared for and running the boys Schools 40th Anniversary Carnival on Friday.   

Decided to play along with the Sketch Challenge presented by Freshly Made Sketches.    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Snow Day stamp set found in our 2013 Holiday Catalog (page 25).   If you know me you know I have a weakness for snowmen.   My house is decorated inside and out with them during the Holiday Season!!  :)    

Hope you enjoy my take on the weekly Sketch Challenge!   Have a great day!

Santa's List - FMS103

Just couldn't stay out of the craft room this evening after I saw the Sketch Challenge posted at Freshly Made Sketches.   When I saw the sketch I immediately grabbed my Santa's List stamp set -- Santa fits perfectly in the space and sketch!   

I like this card so much it will probably be one of my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack cards.

Floating Pop Up Butterfly Card

This is my last sample for my September Classes.   I saw this technique on a Fellow Demonstrator's Blog (Julie's Stamping Spot).   This is such an awesome WOW technique!!   Imagine getting a homemade card (already feeling special) and when you open the card you see butterflies floating in air . . . . FEELING SUPER SPECIAL!!! 

The dimensions of the card are 3" x 5 1/2".  This will allow my Stamping Ladies to test out our AMAZING new tool the Envelope Punch Board!!   I was able to make a coordinating envelope for my card in just a few steps.  
SUPER EASY to use and only $19.95.

Hope you enjoy the project!

Halloween Happiness - MOJO310

Halloween will be here before we know it.   I personally do not send Halloween cards, but I do like to make 3D items for my kids friends/classmates.  I love the Halloween Happiness stamp and it works perfectly for the Treat Bag Topper.  

Working on my samples for my classes this weekend and decided to incorporate a Sketch Challenge into the mix.   My Classes will be making the Treat Bag using the Stampin Up! Clear Envelopes, but made a card for the Sketch Challenge posted on Mojo Monday Blog.

Get Well Flip and Fold Card

Saw the "Flip and Fold" Technique on You Tube and went straight to my Craft room to make a card.   There are SOOOOOO many possibilities with this technique -- Holidays, Birthdays, Masculine, Feminine, etc.   I decided to make a Get Well card using the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (Item#129310; $10.95).  Thought the bright colors and designs would be really nice  and bring a smile to someone's face!  

I also choose the "Tag It" stamp set (w- 130300; $22.95; c- 130303 $16.95) -- this is our annual Ronald McDonald House Charities set.  Each set that is sold, Stampin Up! will donate $3.00 towards the Charity!   Another reason why I LOVE Stampin Up!!! 

This Stamp Set coordinates with our New Chalk Talk Framelits (Item#129983; $24.95).

My Stamping Club will be making this card in September; I know they will have as much fun as I did making it! :)
