Let The Designer Paper Do All The Work!

Only ONE MORE WEEK before the Holiday Catalog goes live. Catalogs should be arriving in your hands this week some time. They were all bulk mailed from Stampin' Up! about 2 weeks ago. One of the most popular bundles thus far with us demonstrators, is the Quilted Christmas Suite of products. You will love the Quilted Christmas Designer Paper. It's one of my favorites and the patterns are so pretty. You can use them as backgrounds to do all the show-offing like I did today. Take this sheet for example:




Notice how I used it as my background and just added a few simple layers to accent the sentiment layer? The sentiment is from the Christmas Quilt stamp set and I added a small strip of the designer paper below the sentiment. I also added a strip of the new Quilted Christmas Ribbon and finished off my card with a Stitched Felt Embellishment that is adorable!



Card Recipe:
  1. Card Base: Emerald Envy Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  2. Layer #2: Quilted Christmas Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4". Glue to card base.
  3. Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 1/2". Stamp the sentiment using Real Red Ink to the right. Glue to card base about 1-3/4" from the bottom. 
  4. Layer #4: Quilted Christmas Designer Paper 3-3/4" x 1/2". Glue below the sentiment layer.
  5. Ribbon: Glue a piece of the Quilted Christmas Ribbon below the sentiment.
  6. Embellish: Glue the holly & berries to the sentiment layer from the Stitched Felt Embellishments. 
  7. Bling: Add a few Rhinestone Jewels in the background
  8. Order all of these supplies on September 1st and you can create your own card!

New Holiday Catalog Product Shares Reminder!

September 1st is almost here and that means the new Holiday Catalog will be live. It also means that I am going to be ordering my Holiday Catalog Product Shares bright & early! Thanks to those of you that have signed up.....wow, what an overwhelming response! Here's what I am talking about:







Most of you have signed up for the "I WANT IT ALL" share which by far happens to be the most popular. I do need two more people for one of the Designer Paper Shares to fill up the four needed per share. 


For those of you new to stamping or new to Stampin' Up!, a product share is a list of products that I offer you and 3 other people combined. I order all of the products and split them equally between 4 people. It's a great way to get a sampling of lots of products at a lower price. Email me to reserve your spot and I'll send you a PayPal invoice. If you prefer to mail me a check, I need to receive it by September 1st!

NOTE: It takes about a week for me to receive the orders and a few days to cut, split and package them all to mail to you!

Watermelon Trio Of Projects!


I got a little carried away with an idea. The idea was meant to be used on the Wood Crate Die project and then I added a coordinating card and then I added coordinating clothespins with a cute cello bag topper and I made myself stop there!



All of my project use Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist and Emerald Envy Inks. At first I was going to use some punch art for the seeds, but remembered a stamp image from the Garden In Bloom stamp set that I could use. The image is meant to be used as flower petals but I thought it would look great as my watermelon seeds:



The sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set was so perfect for my card. I also added Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon at the bottom of my card to finish it off.


Doesn't the Wood Crate Die work well for my treat holder? I cut two pieces using Whisper White Cardstock and sponged the inks like I did on the card, added the stamped seeds and once the crate was assembled, I added a sponged handle to the top with a mini tag:




To finish off my trio, I sponged the same theme with ink onto four clothespins and packaged them by clipping them on a sponged Lots Of Labels Die shape that was inserted into a cello bag and added a topper to the bag. 



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!



Hi Everyone and welcome to our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. We have an interesting theme today. We are all using a Christmas stamp set for a non-Christmas card. For my card I used the Christmas Pines stamp set to create a fall-themed thank you card:


Once all of my cardstock and stamped layers were glued in place, I snuck in a few of the Touches Of Nature Elements. So cute!


Here are the measurements for my layers:

  • Card Base: Crushed Curry Cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Cajun Craze Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". 
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". 
  • Stamp the two pine branch images in Cajun Craze Ink.
  • Add the remaining stamped and cut layers and then glue the Touches Of Nature Elements in place. 
  • The knot is from the Burlap Ribbon which I cut a few strands to achieve.
  • The sentiment is stamped using Sahara Sand Ink.
