TIC-TAC-TOE


Today's sketch will let you go back to your childhood and let you play a game of Tic-Tac-Toe! How fun is THAT??


What would YOU choose? Since there's still a couple of days till Christmas, I decided to go with the middle line - Winter Theme, Your Favourite Holiday Colour, Stripes.

I took a little bit of liberty with the "stripes", but I figured since the words were in a straight line, it would work - LOL! And my favourite holiday colour is blue. Who remembers scrapbooking when you picked the outfits your children would wear based on the colour of the papers you bought??

I created this card for my Christmas Boot Camp Class back in November. During that class we created 17 (!!!) cards and this was one of them. I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) it from the Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalogue and made it my own. In the catalogue, the designer used one of our note cards (these are available in both Whisper White and Crumb Cake) and I stepped it up a bit by using a standard size card and adding a few more layers.


The little snowmen are SO much fun! And don't worry! If you haven't ordered them yet, there's STILL time! And, they'll be available through the spring as well as they're on the inside back page of the Occasions Catalogue. Did you get yours yet?

That's all for now! You can check out the rest of the crew here.

And if I don't speak to you between now and Friday - 
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Let it SNOW!

OH. MY. GOSH. If you thought the snowmen from a few weeks ago were cute, this adorable little penguin will do you in for SURE! Another Paper Crafts Crew Sketch was just the ticket for this little guy.




We started off with a base of Smoky Slate and added a strip of the polka dot DSP from the Neutrals Paper Stack. That was followed by layers of varying sizes in Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.

The (completely adorable) penguin was stamped in Basic Black and his little feet and beak were coloured in using the Pumpkin Pie Marker. His hat was stamped in Real Read and a touch of glitter was added using Dazzling Details.

TOTALLY AWESOME!!

Recently, I got together with 250 of my closest friends *wink* at a Stampin' UP! event known as "On Stage". There we learned about new stamps and new products, got a sneak peek at the upcoming Occasions Catalogue - I can't WAIT to show you - and got to play with some new toys tools that Stampin' UP! is introducing with the new catalogue.


One of the new stamp sets that I just know you're going to LOVE is Grateful Bunch. Check this out!

Paper Crafts Crew

GDP 002

I started off the Paper Crafts Crew sketch and then went over to the GDP blog to see what was up over there. In a really strange coincidence, the sketch was almost the same except flipped - pretty cool!

So I used the same set and the same colours for both cards. It's not a TOTALLY different look, but you can see the differences in using different sketches.

The flowers are all fussy cut, but you'll be pleased to know that all the smaller flowers have a coordinating punch that you can use  (I didn't have it when I created the card, but I do now *grin*).

And oh my gosh! Can I just say I can't believe how long it took me to order the GORGEOUS Farmers Market Designer Series Paper? If you don't have it yet, you SERIOUSLY need to order it! The colours are so rich and vibrant - it'll be the perfect addition to all your spring cards.

That's it for today! You can check out the rest of the crew here.

Merry Christmas!

Tomorrow is class day! It's also the first day of Fair December, so it should be exciting! I'll help my daughter set up at the Fair in the morning and then spend a couple of hours with her, then it's home for an afternoon class and Team Meeting - PHEW! I just wore myself out thinking about it!!

If you're still counting (and haven't fainted dead away just thinking about it!), there's only 21 days till Christmas! That's right - a mere THREE weeks! Are you ready??

Today's card is another quick and easy one (because you KNOW you've got a last minute party that's going to come up and you're GOING to NEED a card!) and should have you ready to go in under 10 minutes!



You'll start off with a base of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. Before you add your Old Olive layer, you'll adhere the Designer Series Papers from Season of Cheer and Merry Moments at an angle and then snip them off so they're the right length. Doing this AFTER they're stuck down takes the guesswork out of it and doesn't leave you wondering if you've trimmed the pieces too short.

Your trees will be stamped in Old Olive Ink onto Old Olive Cardstock (using the tree image from Lots of Joy) and punched out using the Tree Punch found in the annual catalogue. One tree was adhered with SNAIL and the second was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped using Cherry Cobbler Ink and the whole image/sentiment panel was adhered to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Noel

Recently, Stampin' UP! announced that there would now be retiring lists for each of the catalogues throughout the year. As a demonstrator, this is great news as it allows me to sell off retired product immediately without having to wait a year for the next same catalogue to be published. As a stamper who loves her stuff, I'm sad.

The Happy Scenes Set is retiring. :( The GOOD news is that the Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies will continue to be available through the Occasions Catalogue and you're just going to LOVE the new set that goes with it! Yes, I've seen it. No, I can't show you. Sorry. So...you can either bundle it now and have a stamp set that you can use all year...or bundle it on January 5th, 2016 and have an equally amazing set to play with. SO many options!


Today's card (which we'll also be doing in class on Dec. 5th), started off with a base of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I added a layer of Very Vanilla and then a layer of Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. Banners were created using Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Cardstock.

I created a tag using Very Vanilla Cardstock and stamped the tree image from Happy Scenes using Mossy Meadow Ink. The "Noel" was stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I added a length of Natural Chevron Ribbon which was tied with a piece of Linen Thread. The tag was then attached to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The finishing touch was two Home for Christmas Enamel Dots.

On a recent trip around the internet...

You know how that happens, right? You start off in your email and then a link takes you to a blog and then that blog takes you to Pinterest and then Pinterest takes you to another blog and then...well, you know how it goes!

So...on a recent trip around the internet, I discovered a new challenge blog called the Global Design Project. They're on week #11, but I decided to go back to week #1 for the colours I used on today's card. The colours were: Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Pink Pirouette.


So Saffron and Pink Pirouette always make me think of baby cards, so that's the direction I took. How to incorporate Smoky Slate though? Stamp it off, of course! You can *barely* see it behind the sentiment on the tag (I stamped off twice) and on the hangers (I stamped off once). It's soft and muted and goes perfectly with the other two colours!

I started off with a So Saffron base and added a layer of Very Vanilla. Then I cut a piece of Pink Pirouette and ran it through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which you'll be pleased to know is NOT retiring from the Holiday Catalogue and is in fact featured on pages 8-9 of the Occasions Catalogue.

The label on the front started out being a Christmas tag for my upcoming class on Dec. 5th, but I just didn't like the way it was coming together...so I repurposed it and am THRILLED with the result! The corners and ribbon slots were punched with the Curvy Trio Corner Punch, which will also be returning in the Occasions Catalogue.

I stamped the little onesies in So Saffron and Pink Pirouette and cut them (along with the hangers) using the matching die set and my Big Shot. You can purchase the Baby Bundle HERE and save 15% through our bundle and save opportunity.

It's a MOJO kinda day!

Well...actually, it was a MOJO kinda day on Monday which is what got me started creating all the Christmas cards for my upcoming class on Saturday December 5th (you're coming, right?), but I had some other awesomeness to put up first. So...this had to wait till today.

And, if you're keeping track...only 35 more days till Christmas. That's just five weeks...no pressure!

Today's card is quick and easy. so you should be able to whip up a batch of them in no time flat. Especially if you take advantage of my "cut to size" offer when you purchase your card making supplies from me. That's right! When you purchase everything you need to create one of the cards I've featured, I'll personally cut all the pieces to the required sizes. All you'll have to do is stamp and assemble.


You'll start off with a base of Old Olive Cardstock and add a layer of Designer Series Paper from the Merry Moment Pack (which, unlike the paper on Wednesday's card, should be available until April of 2016). The next layer is Real Red Cardstock and the "tag" was created using a different DSP from the same Merry Moments Pack.

Then I punched a 2 ½" circle and adhered the word "merry" which I cut using the Christmas Greetings dies. I then stamped the rest of the sentiment using the Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set. These two items can be paired together and purchased as a BUNDLE for a savings of 15%.

The circle was adhered to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

WYSIWYG

Good morning and Happy Wednesday! If you're checking the calendar, there's only 37 more days till Christmas! YIKES!

Today's card is NOT a Christmas card (there'll be one later this week), but it's what I like to call a WYSIWYG card - which basically means I use whatever supplies are in my immediate reach to create.

Check it out:


Since I was working on Christmas cards, this card is a Real Red Base with a layer of Designer Series Paper from the Season of Cheer Pack currently available in the Holiday Catalogue (but ONLY while quantities last!) and the Bohemian Borders Stamp Set available in the annual 2015-2016 Catalogue. I also used the Crazy for You Stamp Set and Dies (again, in the annual catalogue).

Old Olive was used for stamping the sentiment and it was used along with Island Indigo and Real Red to stamp the border images.

I ran the "Thanks" sentiment through the Big Shot and adhered it with our new (and simply AMAZING) fine tip glue pen.

You can check out the rest of the crew here.

SNOW WAY!!!

If you were at class this past weekend, you got to create this adorable card. If you weren't, you get to see it today! I created this card based on the sketch over at the Paper Crafts Crew.




I just love, love, LOVE the Snow Place Stamp Set and coordinating Snow Friends Framelits. When I first saw it in the Holiday Catalogue, I just KNEW I had to have it. It was the VERY FIRST thing I ordered!

Today's card features the Snow Place bundle and Designer Series Papers from the Season of Cheer DSP Pack.

Our adorable snowman was stamped using the NEW Basic Black Archival Ink. If you've been waiting for a TRUE black that performs beautifully on any of our paper surfaces, then THIS is the ink for you! I've already tested it out on watercolour paper and it doesn't run, no matter how much you saturate the paper. It's perfect for colouring with our markers too. It's available in Holiday Catalogue right now!

To add some contrast between the Whisper White circle and the Whisper White background, we sponged on some Soft Sky Ink.

I hope you like this quick and easy little Christmas card!

Still Christmas in July

Here's another card we'll be creating during our Christmas in July Class. It was inspired by a similar one on Pinterest. Don't you just love that time sucking wonderful site? Between the cards and the recipes and the decor ideas, it's no wonder I never get any work done!



This one is quick and simple enough that you could make DOZENS in no time flat...especially when all the paper is pre-cut for you!

SPECIAL OFFER: 

When you order all of the supplies from me to make any of the cards featured in my classes, I will pre-cut all the paper for you and deliver it to you ready to go! What could be easier?

More Christmas in July

I created this card for the MOJO Monday sketch and then didn't get it up in time. OOPS!! But hooray for being able to backdate posts - LOL!


I started off with an Old Olive base and added layers of Cherry Cobbler and the new Merry Moments Designer Series Paper from the 2015-2016 catalogue. I love that it's bright and cheery colours! Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler go so well together.  There's also some Mossy Meadow in the colour palette if that's your preference for a more subtle green. I hope there's some blues/silver/grey in the soon to be released Holiday catalogue as I'm still loving that combo from last year too!

There are still some spaces left in classes on July 25th (both morning and afternoon), so if you'd like to come, I'd love to have you!

Christmas in July!

I posted this card on Facebook on June 25th, reminding everyone that Christmas was just SIX. MONTHS. AWAY. Not surprisingly, some of my friends were LESS than impressed with me - LOL!


Too bad!! They'll be the ones scrambling when it comes time to send out Christmas cards and they realize they SHOULD have listened to me back in June!

The card above is just one of the cards we'll be creating during the Christmas in July class on July 25th...which, coincidentally, is just FIVE months till Christmas. You're coming, right??
