Pennant Parade Christmas!

I know it is 90+ degrees outside, but I just had to make a Christmas card with the new Pennant Parade stamp set. I just love it! I used Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, and Real Red for this card. The flower pot and stem were inked with Real Red and Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Markers, then stamped onto the Whisper White cardstock. The tree stamp was inked with Wild Wasabi, and the star was inked with Daffodil Delight. I added Dazzling Diamonds to the tree with our 2-Way Glue pen for a fun touch! I stamped "merry" once in Real Red and once in Wild Wasabi, then punched them out with our Jewelry Tag punch. I attached them with glue dots right below the Real Red 1/4 " Grosgrain Ribbon bow. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the tree and framing layers to the card front. Come back tomorrow for another post using new stamps!

Pennant Parade Sneak Peek

Hello! I just love the new Pennant Parade stamp set! It is very versatile, and I will be showing you samples in the next few days. This card uses the pennant as an ice cream cone -- perfect for the hot weather we have been having! I stamped the image with Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake card stock, then punched it out using the new Petite Pennants Builder punch. The scoops of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream were punched with the Cupcake Builder punch using Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and Regal Rose card stock. The striped Designer Series Paper is from the new Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper pack. The yummy ribbon is also new and is one of my favorites! It is called Scallop Dots Ribbon, and it is 1/2" wide. The best part is that it has polka dots on one side, and solid color on the other. I used the Scallop Dots Ribbon in Chocolate Chip for this card. Come back tomorrow for another card featuring the Pennant Parade stamp set!

Final Bon Voyage Project!

Here is the final card we made last week at my Bon Voyage Party. This card features the Great Friend and Fresh Cuts stamp sets. I punched through the front panel so the greeting is visible when the card is folded even though it is adhered to the inside panel. I love the color combination of Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler -- that even sounds like something I would love to eat, too! :-) Stop by soon for some projects made with NEW items that will be available in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog! Have a great day!

Friends 24-7

Hello! Well, don't fall off you chair -- I am actually posting less than 24 hours from my last post! If it weren't the first day of summer, I would tell you to get the snow shovel ready for a blizzard! This is one of the cards we made at my Bon Voyage Party last week. I am so sad to see Friends 24-7 retire. It has been one of my favorites, and I will keep it on my shelf long after it retires next week. I love the color combination of Whisper White, Baja Breeze, and Chocolate Chip. I also used two stamps from the All Holidays stamp set: the "for you" on the front panel, and "My Dear Kind & Wonderful Friend" for the inside of the card. This card is a Gate-fold card, one of my favorite types of cards. You can still order both of these stamp sets online -- just click the round button next to this post and you will be connected to my demonstrator business website. Scroll to the bottom of my page, and click on Shop Now. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another Bon Voyage creation! Happy 1st day of Summer!

Strength and Hope Class Projects

Hello! I AM back -- the end of May and beginning of June are always crazy, aren't they? The end of the school year always seems to be a whirlwind! Plus, the "Stampin' Up! year" also comes to a close in June as well. Remember that the Last Chance stamps will be available until June 30, but the retiring accessories are only available while supplies last. You can shop for Stampin' Up! merchandise on my demonstrator website This photo shows the projects we made at my Strength and Hope class in May. Everyone attending this class made a donation to my Relay for Life team (thank you!), and I was able to raise over $100 for the American Cancer Society. This stamp set is in the Summer Mini Catalog, and will be available for purchase until August 30, 2011. $2 from the sale of each set will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I hope you like these projects! I will post photos of the projects we made at my "Bon Voyage" party tomorrow. Please come back tomorrow!
