Designer Cuts Cards

Hello Stamp Friends!

I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've been really busy trying to get my house back in order after the holidays. Including re-organizing some things in my craft room. I cleaned up my desk yesterday and it looked so clean that I couldn't help but sit down and mess it up really fast:)

One of the first things I bought in the Occasions Mini Catalog was the Designer Cuts Cards & Envelope set. I thought they were really pretty and couldn't wait to make something with them.

On the first card, I weaved Real Red 1/8" Taffeta ribbon through the holes and then just adhered a piece of Real Red card stock to the back. I had a hard time picking out a sentiment, so I wound up using the "With Love" stamp from the Hand Penned stamp set from the Holiday Mini, which is no longer available. I have my fingers crossed that we will see it again in the new Idea Book & Catalog on June 1st!

For the second card, I used the new Framelits Heart Collection. I used the heart that was a little bigger than the heart on the card along with Calypso Coral card stock and adhered it to the inside of the card. I wrapped 3/8" Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon around the front of the card and then used the new 1/8" Calypso Coral Organdy ribbon to tie on the cute little Trinket Key, which is available on page 200 of the Idea Book & Catalog. I thought it was a nice little touch along with the heart, which was added with a dimensional. It came from the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits die.

This one is my favorite! What do you think?

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Grateful Greetings & Hand-Penned Holidays
Paper: Designer Cuts Cards & Envelopes set, Real Red & Calypso Coral
Ink: Real Red & Calypso Coral
Other: Real Red 1/8" Taffeta, Basic Rhinestones, 3/8" Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, 1/8" Calypso Coral Organdy ribbon, Trinket Keys, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits die & Stampin' Dimensionals®

Sale-A-Bration begins tomorrow!

For each $50 that you spend, you will get a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure! See that cute little 1/8" Calypso Coral Organdy ribbon that I used to tie on the Trinket key? That can be yours for free with a $50 order! That's not all you get! It's a ribbon & brad pack! So you will also get a roll of Lucky Limeade organdy ribbon and a pack of brads!

Well, I guess I better get busy and get my desk cleaned up again:) I will be back soon with some photos of how I organize things.

I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Card share with SAB Sneak Peak

Hello Stamp Friends!

In my last post, I promised to share the cards that I made at my upline meeting this past weekend.

This first card was made using the P.S. I Love You stamp set in the New Occasions Mini Catalog. We also used several other new products making this card. We used the new Blossom punch, the Adorning Accent Edgelits Dies & Textured Impressions Embossing Folders & Baja Breeze 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon. Isn't this pretty?

This second card has a combination of new products from the Occasions Mini and the Sale-A-Bration mini.

The ribbon, brad and DSP are items that will be found in the SAB catalog. Sale-A-Bration begins on January 24th. I can't wait!!!

Tomorrow I have a card to share using the new Mixed Bunch stamp set and the coordinating Blossom punch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Hello Stamp Friends!

Just wanted to share some reminders...Today is the last day to order from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Here is the list of items that will be carried over to the new catalog in July. Click the flyer on the left sidebar to see it up close.

Here are a couple of my favorite items from the Holiday Mini that I will really miss:

Hand-Penned Holidays Stamp set
124310 21.95 Wood-Mount
124312 16.95 Clear Mount

Spice Cake Designer Series Paper
124003 10.95

Stampin' Up! has announced that this punch will not be carried over into the new catalog, so if you must have this punch, today is the last day to order it.

Stampin' Card Keeper
124107 8.95

I saw this for the first time at the Stampin' Up! Convention this past summer. It comes with templates, so you can cover it with Fabric or Designer Series paper. These are a must-have for me, so I placed an order just to stock up:)

If you like any of these items or anything else from the Holiday mini that is not on the carryover list, today is the last day to order.

Also, the Clearance Rack Blitz will be ending on January 5th. There are items up to 80% off! Click on the Clearance Rack icon on the left sidebar to take advantage of these deals.

Please come back later as I would like to share the beautiful cards that I received in the mail for Christmas.

I hope you have a great day! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
