Sneak Peek for Saleabration!!

Stampin' Up!'s biggest sale of the year is just around the corner! Starting Jan 24th you can once again earn a free item for EVERY $50 you spend. There is no limit to how many items you can earn through March 31st!

This is a sneak peek of some of the free product. I used the new DSP pack of paper called, Everyday Enchantment. It matches the 2011-2012 In-Color family. It is so pretty! The flower stamp is also an earn-able item called, Fresh Vintage Stamp Set. I used Lucky Limeade as the card base & shaded the stamped flower image with Pool Party. The Happy Birthday is stamped in Calypso Coral. The little butterflies are from the beautiful wings embosslet.

I hope you enjoyed!

Another January Class Card

This is another stamp out of the Occasion Mini called, Candy Conversations. It is one of the great single stamps that SU! sells. The base cardstock is Lucky Limeade. The textured dotted DSP is also from the Occasion Mini called Sweet Shop. I layered the main image with Calypso Coral. The "love you" stamp came from the P.S. I Love you stamp set also out of the Occasion Mini. It is a real simple card with vibrant colors. I used the taffeta white ribbon to add a bit of dimension.

I hope that you enjoy & come to the January stamp class to make this card!

Death by Chocolate

I got out my new stamp set, P.S. I Love U, to play with today. I absolutely love this set. All of the stamps used on this card came from this set. I used the Chocolate Chip marker to color the bottom of the Strawberries, Cherry Cobbler to color the strawberry part, & Garden Green to color the stem. The cardstock is Cherry Cobbler with a Chocolate Chip layer. I used the new textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the border around the bottom of the card. My favorite part of the card is the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details that I placed along the chocolate line. All these products will be available in the new Occasions Mini Starting January 4th & I can't wait!! The Holiday Mini will come to a finish January 3rd, so if there is anything you still want, then now is the time to order!!

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of the upcoming catalog! We will be doing this card for the next class coming up in January!

Run, Run, Rudolph!

We made this adorable Reindeer candy bar wrapper in class for December. The wrapper itself is DSP from the Neutrals paper pack. I cut the Chocolate Chip piece 51/2" x 6" & wrapped it around the candy bar. The nose is made from the 13/8" circle punch in Chocolate Chip & 1" circle punch in Red Glimmer Paper. The tuff of hair is 1/2 of the 13/8" circle scallop punch. The eye lids are one 1" circle punch cute in half from the Chocolate Chip & the eye balls are 3/4" circle punch in white & 1/2" circle punch in black. The antlers are made from the big shot sizlett die called Swirls and Scribbles.

These were such a big hit at class!! Most of my customers are making them to give as gifts for christmas!! Good Luck ladies!

Baby Elephants

We have a new baby coming in the family we are so so excited!! My cousin Ashley Wilson & his wife Brooke are finally having a baby!! They are adopting a baby girl & she is due Dec 7th. If she is not here by the 12th she will come to the world c-section.

My mom & I decided that we better get busy & get some cards made. My mom already finished the baby bee & the receiving blanket for me to give. I bought the material & she sewed it up. In our family we call blankets made with flannel & batting that are tied out with yarn, bee's. They are a long family tradition & we love them!!

The card that I made is this darling elephant card. The stamp set is a retired one called Baby Steps. I fell in love with this stamp set when I saw it. I have had it since Sellabration last year & have been waiting for the right occasion. The base to the card is Pretty in Pink & I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to give the background some texture. The layer for the main image is the shimmer silver paper. I just love this paper. It comes in both red & silver. The elephants I stamped in Pretty in Pink & cute out ears for a 3-d affect. The ribbon I tied on the card is a silk & organza ribbon that is not Stampin' Up!. I know shame on me huh? hehehehehe

Next post I will share the cutest hershey bar wrapper you have ever seen for christmas!!
