Friends Never Fade

Don't you just love brown and blue together? The green adds a nice touch too. This is a brand new set from the Stampin' Up catalog called Friends Never Fade.  We did this at my free stamping classes yesterday (kind of like an open house, but more organized). I was showing off some of our new products. This one uses the new stamp set, plus the new Greenhouse gala designer paper, and the baja breeze and pear pizzazz papers also. This is a super quick and easy card so I am going to make some extras for swaps for convention. So, if you see me there, come by and swap with me! I am also doing the same card with the yellow, orange and brown combo too!

Studio Sketches…


If you have seen the new Stampin' Up catalog, then I am sure you saw this awesome stamp set. It is one of my new favorites! I made this card as one of my stamp club projects for this month and then I decided to also do it for a swap I just hosted. I decided to bump it up a little so the first card is the original, then I decided to distress the edges of the vase piece and then spritz it with the smooch spray for my swap.


I used the Studio Sketches set for the most of the card, except the background….it is En Francais. Oops, forgot about the Tiny Tags set for the words (also used the jewelry tag punch) The designer paper is the greenhouse gala. The colors are old olive, cajun craze, crumb cake and naturals ivory.



Here is a close up so you can see the smooch spray on there. I used the gold glow one. I love this stuff! On the first card I used the aquapainter on the both the pears and the vase after I stamped them to blend the color, but on the second card, I decided to just do it on the pears and leave the vase as it was. It gives it a totally different look I think.



Which card do you like best?? Leave a comment  and let me know . I like the 2nd one best I think. It is more shabby chic looking.


The New Stampin’ Up Catalog Starts Tomorrow!!!

The new Stampin' Up catalog starts tomorrow! I am so excited!! This gorgeous stamp is in a level 1 hostess set called Because I Care so you can get it for FREE with a $150 or more order. Get a few friends together and do a book party and you can be the hostess, or call me to schedule a workshop! Then I can teach you some great stamping ideas and you will have a blast! I stamped the En Francais background first and then the hydrangea on top. I used markers to color the hydrangea direct to stamp. I think it was pear pizzazz, marina mist and concord crush.  That thin ribbon is also a new product from Stampin Up. It is 1/8 inch taffeta.

Easy Peasy card….



 I was messing around with the hydrangea ( Because I Care stamp set) and stamped it on a piece of naturals ivory cardstock and I thought to myself that it really didn't need much else because the flower itself is so pretty so I just added the sentiment and ribbon….2 minute card done! I colored the flower with markers (direct to stamp). I used marina mist and concord crush plus pear pizzazz for the leaves.

Friends Never Fade

Here is another sneak peek at one of the new stamp sets coming soon in the new Stampin Up catalog! I can hardly wait! This stamp set is called Friends Never Fade and I used the matching designer paper called Greenhouse Gala. THe yellow if the new Daffodil Delight cardstock and the orange is pumpkin pie.  I also used the daffodil marker to color in the center of the flower.

I just love Hydrangeas!


I think this new stamp set "Because I Care" is my favorite one in the new catalog. It is a level 1 hostess set so you can get it for FREE just by placing an order! For this card, I used the En Francais background in marina mist on marina mist cardstock and layered that onto the concord crush cardstock. For the flower, I inked up the flower part in marina mist and then took the concord crush marker and tapped it all over, colored the stem in pear pizzazz marker and then stamped it onto the top note paper.

Another Vintage Vogue card

I just LOVE this stamp set.  I know as soon as you all get this set, you will go crazy over it. It is so shabby chic looking which is just my style. This card was made by my upline Faith. She always does gorgeous cards.
But unless you are a demonstrator, you will have to wait til Jan 5th to order it. Only demos can get this baby early. That is one of the MANY perks of being a Stampin Up demonstrator. If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator, just click on "Join My Team" at the top of this page. I would love to have you on my team.


New Punches are Coming Soon!

You will love the new punches that are coming out on Jan 5th! I have been having fun playing with mine the last few days!

Starting with the new 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and continuing with all new punch designs going forward, Stampin' Up! has adopted a new body style for our punches!

A few features of the new punch style:

  • Low-profile, rectangular punch body allows for easier stacking and storing
  • Punches lock shut for easier storage and transport
  • Dual labels on top and end allow for easy identification and selection when stored
  • Available in three sizes: small, medium, and extra-large
  • New punches allow for larger punched images and more intricate designs while providing greater ease of use.
    • Extra -large punch images also allow for two-step designs like the Two-Step Bird punch in the Occasions Mini Catalog
  • Corner punches allow you to punch a corner design along the inside edges of a page, not just corners
  • larger, whole-hand handle design provides better leverage for easier use
  • Available in an exclusive Stampin' Up! color

Part of Stampin' Up!'s commitment to providing demonstrators and customers with the very best crafting tools includes the belief in what we call continuous improvement. Essentially what this means is that even if something works very well, but we see a chance to improve it, we will work to make it even better. While new punch designs will be in the new body style, existing designs will remain in the existing body style for now. We will communicate any further changes as those decisions are made.
