The new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration is now in full operation!   Once a year we have Sale–A-Bration, the best stamping time of the year, where you can earn an exclusive product with a purchase (not including taxes and shipping) at no charge!

I believe that the Dragonfly Dreams bundle will the be one of the very popular bundles in the Occasions Catalogue – but then there are so many fantastic bundles!!!

I thought I’d go back into the archives and use an old technique that is very versatile.  It’s the shaving cream technique (and I still have the original can of shaving cream that I purchased many, many years ago!).

I cut some Whisper White card stock (5 1/4″ x 4″) and spread out a piece of wax paper.  I sprayed some shaving cream onto the wax paper and then add several drops of Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Pink Piroutte reinkers onto the shaving cream and then used a wooden stir stix to run it through the shaving cream and swirled it around.

shaving-creamI placed the Whisper White card stock on top of the shaving cream and pressed it lightly to pick up the shaving cream.  Using a chop stick, I then scraped off the excess.  There was so much shaving cream I was able to do two (actually I could have done abut half a dozen).

shaving-cream-samplesI trimmed the bottom piece down to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and then put it together for this card.

dragonfly-dreams-shaving-creamThe card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Pink Pirouette.  I cut the dragonflies using Rich Razzleberry using Rich Razzleberry card stock and adhered it to the front of the card.  The sentiment from the set is stamped using Rich Razzleberry classic ink.  I added some shimmer onto the dragonflies with the clear Wink of Stella brush.

I have cut out more dragonflies on the other piece and will use it for some other cards.

Kathleen’s Cards

I am always so happy to receive cards from my friend, Kathleen.  She makes lovely cards and they are so beautifully put together.

One of the cards that was in my mail is this gorgeous Christmas card she made using the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits.

delicate-ornaments-thinlits-kathleen So elegant!

I also received this beautiful birthday card from her.  She used the Sitting Pretty stamp set and it is impeccably made – I love it.  Thank you, Kathleen!

Sharon’s Santa’s Sleigh

Woo Hoo another post!  The mail boxes in our complex had been broken into so our mail was being held at the Post Office.  I hadn’t had a chance to pick it up until yesterday and what a wonderful surprise to receive this beautiful Christmas card from Sharon, one of my team members.  Thank you, Sharon!

santas-sleigh-sharon

Sharon used Emerald Envy for the card base with strips of Presents and Pinecones Designer Washi Tape.  The sentiment is from Holly berry Happiness and of course it’s topped off with the sweet reindeer from Santa’s Sleigh.

Santa’s Sleigh and Coming Soon Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration

Wow, I’m back with a post today!   This is only the second card I have made using the Santa’s Sleigh bundle and I am so excited that it will be a carry over as with many of the other stamps that I have still unused!  I absolutely love it as there are endless projects you can make with all the stamps and thinlits.

I had so much fun making this as it started out to be a very clean and simple card and when I began playing with some of the stamps, the reindeer got accessorized and the sleigh filled with holiday packages!   If you don’t have this bundle, it is really one you may want to get as a bundle before the end of the month.

santa-sleigh-marina-mistI used a Marina Mist card base with the Whisper White panel embossed with the Woodland embossing folder.  The sleigh is Marina Mist.  The sleigh overlay and the reindeer is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I used several retired items, the Cherry Cobbler Candy Dot for the reindeer’s nose, the silver cord for the rein and the 1/8″ Silver ribbon on the packages.  The sentiment is  from Hang Your Stocking (also being carried over) stamped in Marina Mist.

CLICK HERE for the carry over list.   Shop my ONLINE STORE HERE  for the carry over items and be sure to check out the Year End closeout items while you’re in the store.

This is the best time of the year as we celebrate the holidays and in less than two weeks, we will be celebrating the best stamping time of the year as we start 2017 with the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration!

Stampin’ Up! Year End Closeouts and Bella and Friends Birthday Card

Twenty-one years ago yesterday that I received a very precious birthday present as my grand daughter, Danielle, was born on my birthday!  What a wonderful birthday I had!  This year not so great as I’ve been so sick with a sore throat and laryngitis!  I hope it goes away soon.

I pulled out the Bella and Friends stamp set to make this card for her from her Uncle Colin.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Pines

Stamping is therapy and it was so good to get back to the craft table and make a card!  I used this lovely Christmas Pines stamp set and Pretty Pines Thinlits for my card.

christmas-pines-cherry
A quick card using Cherry Cobbler as the base card with a Very Vanilla mat and a piece of the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobbler classic ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and used the new Stitched Shaped framlits to cut it out.

It is layered onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut with the Layered Circles framelits with scallop edge.  The branches are cut from Garden Green card stock with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and the bow cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The circle sentiment is adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals and the branches attached to the back with the bow on the front to complete the card.

Christmas Pines is one of the sets that is discounted by 25% to the end of November.  Be sure to check out the other stamps that are also on sale.

Stampin’ Up! Greetings from Santa Shaker Cards

The Greetings from Santa stamp set is on sale this month (until November 30) at 25% off – what a great opportunity to get this popular stamp set at a discount, see details below!  At my White Christmas Card class last month we made a shaker card using this set along with the Detailed Santa Thinlits (#141836, $33).

greetings-from-santa-shakerThe shaker cards are so easy to make with the Foam Adhesive Strips (#141825, $10.75) introduced in this year’s Annual Catalogue.  We added some sequins and other glittery bits for the shaker items.  The image is from the set that we stamped with Silver Encore ink and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and fussy cut.  It’s popped up with dimensionals on a strip of the 3/8″  silver glitter ribbon from the Glitter Ribbon Sweet Sugarplum)  pack (page 37, HC, #142015, $8.00).

Here’s another version of the Greetings from Santa shaker card.  This is made with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Mica Flakes are used in the shaker and a few Red Glimmer cut outs from the Starlight Thinlit dies are added to the front of the card.

Here’s a list of the other stamp sets that are on sale until the end of the month – and don’t forget that you can also purchase the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies now (not have to wait until next year).
