Happy World Card Making Day!
Hope you've enjoyed all of the wonderfully diverse ideas!  If you have any questions feel free to contact me!
Here's my last one for today - it's one we'll be making in my next stamp.  Those leaves are lots of fun to play with - you can make them look so real!


I used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then die cut the leaves from the Autumn Accents Die and Glimmer Paper - all from the Holiday Mini.  The saying is from You Are Loved with a Vintage Brad!

Happy World Card Making Day! We have a ton of inspiration planned for you. 5 Posts from each of us midnight, 6am, noon, 6pm, 11;59pm. So check back often or wait until midnight and grab a cup of your favorite beverage and view all the great ideas at once. 
Here's another Christmas card idea!  I used strips of the Be of Good Cheer designer paper for the strips as well as the fun folded flower made out of circle punches.  The center has a gorgeous (which you can't really tell here) faceted button and a pearl.  Saying is from Teeny Tiny wishes in Gumball Green.



I am excited to share my card ideas but I am also excited to share some of my RemARKable team members.

Isn't this cute?  As usual, it looks better in real life.  Can you see the "Cheers!" in the background?  I stamped it a bunch of times in Versamark.  All stamps are from the Happy Hour stamp set.  There are more drinks, words and drink accessories to choose from, but I went with these for my birthday lineup. : )  Designer paper is from Smooches and I used the other Adorning Accent for my scalloped piece in Island Indigo.  The base is in Rich Razzleberry - great color!

Here's my second card for you today:
I took the Apothecary Art Stamp Set and made it "Christmasy" by coloring it in with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Lucky Limeade markers.  I didn't have a holiday saying that fit in the banner space, so I printed out the Happiest of Holidays in MDS!  The stamped piece and red piece were die cut with the Framelits Labels Collection and the base was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.

Stamp set is Flowering Flourishes in Black.  Love black and white!  I die cut the stamped piece and black with the Adorning Accents Edgelit on my BigShot and tied a 1/8" taffeta ribbon with a knot around them.

Retirement Time!

8:58 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
The Retirement Lists are out! Click on the button to the right to view them. You will see many ink pads and lot of card stock on the retiring list...don't worry - some of it is just being "repackaged" or "redesigned". First, 12x12 TEXTURED CARD STOCK WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED. If you want 12x12 Textured Card Stock in Stampin' Up! colors, please ORDER NOW while the colors you want are still available. The 12x12 Smooth Card Stock will still be offered, but only in select individual colors and collections (which I will not be able to list for you until May 8th at the earliest). Also, SIMPLY ADORNED and DEFINITELY DECORATIVE PRODUCTS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED. If you want any of these products, I once again urge you to ORDER IMMEDIATELY for the best selection. In addition, you will notice that ALL our ink pads are on the Retiring List. Here is some clarification on that: CRAFT INK PADS, CRAFT INK SPOTS, AND CRAFT INK REFILLS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED...with the exception of BLACK and WHITE Craft Ink Pads and Refills. CLASSIC INK PADS WILL RETURN---REDESIGNED---WITH A FIRM FOAM PAD...with the exception of all 2010-2012 In Colors (Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Blushing Bride). Classic Ink Spots (1"x1" pads) will not be redesigned, they will still have the current linen pad. [Stay tuned...I will explain more about the upcoming NEW Firm Foam Classic Ink Pads in a separate post.] And one more bit of information, INDIVIDUAL STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS WILL BE OFFERED ONLY IN SELECT COLORS...though they will still be available in color collections packages (i.e., Neutrals, Regals, Brights, Subtles, In Colors). If you have any questions on these retiring products, please feel free to contact me.

Purse Addiction

9:16 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
I made my own alligator purse! As part of the Summer Smooches preview promotion, Stampin' Up! has a new purse die and it is so addicting! I was just going to make one but it was really easy and fun, before I knew it I had 5 with plans for many more. The "Alligator purse" was embossed and sponged with artichoke ink, but these others were just cut with designer paper and I added a few brads. These are a great favor size and can be used for lots of occasions. It's available til the end of the month. Check out my website for more details or to order. You'll be glad you did!

This is such a great kit, I just had to offer it as a class! You get a ready to assemble box with 10 printed card bases, envelopes, dividers and self adhesive die cuts. My class also includes a bonus card and the sticky strip to assemble the box. This is wonderful to have on hand and makes a great gift that won't take forever to make or break the bank!
