Super Simple Fall card


Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I have been super busy this week. I have had a stamping class almost every day for the past week and sometimes I just get behind. I am sure all of you can relate to that. It has been SUPER WARM here in VA. We broke the record yesterday and hit 87 degrees! It totally feels like summer. If I wasn't so busy, I might even lay out by the pool! It has been nice but the weather is supposed to change tomorrow and be in the 60s again and more fall like. So, here is a SUPER SIMPLE fall card I made for my stamp camp last month. I used the Autumn Spice designer paper and cut it to 4×4 squares. You can make a TON of cards this way in no time. For the flower (from Day of Gratitude), I stamped it in Saffron and then took the chocolate chip marker and colored the edges before it hit the paper. For the ribbon, I laid  a piece of sticky strip down and accordion folded it.

Gifts of Christmas

This is one of the cards I am doing in my Christmas stamp a stack this month.  We are making 5 different cards (2 of each one). So, when you finish, you will have 10 cards total. They are all pretty quick and easy. For this one I stamped the dove from Gifts of CHristmas in Espresso onto vanilla cardstock. The polka dot paper is from Jolly Holiday.

Turn the Owl Punch into a Hippo!

One of my friends (and customer) Rikki Holley came up with this cute idea of turning the owl punch into a hippo. She made a video of it so I wanted to share it with you. She did a great job. I keep telling her she needs to sign up and be a Stampin Up demonstrator!  Leave a comment and let her know what you think. Great Job Rikki!


Christmas Card stamp a stack!


This month I am doing my annual Christmas card stamp a stack. We will be making 2 each of these 5 cards so you will get a great head start if you sending out all handstamped cards this year. Classes are Sunday the 24th at 1pm, Monday the 25th at 7pm and Tuesday the 26th at 10am.  The spots are filling up quickly so email me to sign up before you miss out.  Cost of the class is $20 and includes all supplies, snacks and door prizes.


Quilted Christmas Ornament


Here is a Quilted Christmas Ornament that I made using the Deck the Halls fabric from the Holiday mini. I posted a how to video of this a few weeks ago here and I have been dying to make one using Stampin Up fabric. I can't take credit for the video since I got it from you tube. It really isn't that hard, but it does take a little while. The great thing is you can use the big shot to cut your squares out (use the 3 inch scallop square). I make them while I watch TV now so they don't take much concentration. I am doing a couple of classes on these at the end of the month and you get a whole pack of the fabric included in your class fee.


Another version of that Christmas card from the last post…..




Here is another version of that Christmas card I posted the other day.  For this one, I used the Deck the Halls fabric again for the ribbon, but I also attached one of the matching buttons to it. I think it really makes the card look more old fashioned. I used a rhinestone in the center of the snowflake too. This is one of my club cards for the next couple of weeks.




Here is a close up of the button and the linen thread. I LOVE these buttons! The fabric is so nice and it matches our colors perfectly.



Christmas is coming!

I was at Target yesterday and they were putting out the Christmas stuff already and it isn't even Halloween yet! What the heck?? Well, it is never too soon to get started on those Christmas cards and here is a great one. My upline Melissa Ellis shared a similar card with me a few weeks ago and I changed it a little bit and did it for a swap with a group of friends. It is super easy and uses the new Northern Flurry embossing folder, the Candy Cane Christmas fabric, and the Tags til Christmas set. All of these items can be found in the Stampin Up Holiday mini catalog.
