Sweet Soiree

Love is in the air and if you’ve got some special upcoming occasions this year you’re going to love the Sweet Soiree Suite of products found on page 12 & 13 of the Occasions Catalog. Filled with elegant options for your paper crafting needs.

Check out these two beautiful cards made with the Cake Soiree Stamp Set (145521/145745) – this first one used the Silver Foil Washi Tape from Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (145578) as a finishing touch under the cake.

Beautifully done in Berry Burst and silver. Don’t you love the Silver Foil (132178) cake stand cut using the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies (145617)?

And how about this second card that uses items from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (145578) as it’s focal point. The Marina Mist 3/8″ Scalloped Velvet Ribbon is just beautiful.

This card also uses our New Simply Stripes Embossing Folder (145648) for the back ground, Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper (145564) and to die for Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon (145489).

I just love the way Stampin’ Up! items coordinate together! Great news there is a bundle (145816/147627)  that includes both the stamp set and Framelits dies – so you can save 10% too.

More Sure Do Love You

Valentines Day is right around the corner and so I’ve got a couple more cards to share with you.

Both these cards use the fine heart image, but they have such different feels to them.

I really like the way this heart shape was made into a wreath and the way the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper is used for the background – gives it a more country look. Do you recognize the little flower? It’s from the Lots of Lavender Stamp set that you can earn during Sale-a-bration for FREE with a $50 purchase.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a video tutorial with you for a fun Valentine project.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Sure Do Love You (*145763/14566)

Picture Perfect Birthday Tutorial

Today’s card is one that we used the new Stamparatus to create at my Team Retreat over the weekend – but no worries if you don’t have yours yet you can still make the card. (The Stamparatus just makes things faster since you only have to do the placement once.)

It’s got a fun fold and I think perfect for any age with its bright cheerful colors.

This card uses the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper so it gives you lots of wonderful patterns to choose from!

Winter Weekend Team Fun

This past weekend my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, gathered for a few days of stamping, sharing and fun. We gather 3 times a year for these retreats and it is always a blast!

Cindy, gave everyone these sweet little Valentine boxes.

This time there were 7 of us – here is a early morning shot of the space on Saturday morning before the fun began.

This time on Saturday after our Shoe box Swap I introduced the Dice Game – and it seemed to be a hit!

Have you ever played? This game is always fun and it is fast paced!

Here are the rules. There are pans with 2 dice in them, all the prizes are put in the center of the circle. You roll the dice and then pass the pan, if you roll a double you get to choose a prize.

Then after all the prizes are gone from the center the timer is set. Then you start the game again, but this time you steal from each others piles of prizes. Seems there is always one that is highly sought after and is stolen frequently!

When the timer goes off the game is done and everyone gets to open their prizes!

We had so much fun doing this I’m sure we’ll be including it again!

And now on to the cards.

Want to see what we made in our Shoe box Swap? Everyone made great cards to share.

This first one uses the Petal Palette bundle (145973/145974. If you love this bundle of products check out my Class & Events, we’ll be using this in my February 3rd class to create a wonderful stationary box and cards. CLICK HERE for my Calendar of Events.

And here is a elegant card made using the Hold on to Hope bundle (145969/145970) and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168).

I love the thinlits in the bundle – this larger cross has beautiful detail and the delicate cross in the set not only cuts the cross out, but also embosses a design on it.

And this final card uses the Brusho Crystal Colours (144101) and the Beautiful Day stamp set (145912/145915) found in the Occasions Catalog. Want to learn more about this fun new product? Check out my March class HERE.

Blue Mountain Stampers Swaps

Today is the beginning of my Blue Mountain Winter Weekend Retreat and I’m looking forward to getting together with my team for a full weekend of crafting. What could be better, right?

So today I thought I’d share some of my team members swaps from the January Team Meeting. I can’t wait to see what they’ve been up to in the last couple of weeks!

And at our January Meeting we had a lot of fun working with the new Stamparatus too! (I’m so lucky to have received one of the first Stamparatus tools since I’m part of the Leader to Leader program who helped design this.)

I’m looking forward to sharing it with you in my January Card Class so you can see and use it too!

I’m working on some videos for you and hope to be posting them soon.

So stop by next week and see what we’ve been up to. Better go – lots to do before the fun starts this afternoon. LOL!

Beautiful Heartfelt Blooms

When I first saw this stamp set at OnStage in Salt Lake I knew it would be a have to have for me, and so I thought everyone would love to make a card using the set for my Occasions Kick Off. The image is just breath taking and so realistic. Stampin’ Up! currently has a patent pending on these these type of stamps. They are photographic realistic and have tons of depth – they are called Distinktive stamps.

Beautiful, right? I love the Powder Pink and Berry Burst colors that were used, just perfect!

Believe it or not all you have to do is ink up this stamp – it does all the work for you. The stamp lays down different opacities of ink giving a deep rich image.

Want to make your own? As promised here is the tutorial for you today.

Heartfelt Blooms Card Tutorial (printable) PDF

Flying Home

The Flying Home is a image set that is filled with sweet little images perfect for all kinds of occasions.

and while it doesn’t have any sentiments included in the set, this makes it perfect for pairing up with the sentiments of your choice.

Today I’m sharing with you one of the cards we made during my Occasions Catalog Kick Off. It’s a total case since I loved it just the way it was. There is a bit of fussy cutting for the nest and butterfly, but that’s well worth it I think.

And as mentioned I’m including a Tutorial for the card so you can make one too! I just love how easy our Stampin’ Blends make coloring this card!

One Big Meaning

If you send a lot of Thank You cards then the One Big Meaning stamp set (18788/139420) might be a great choice for you since it is filled with a wonderful selection of fonts and sizes. I find myself reaching for it all the time and at this time of year I’ve always got thank you that need to be sent.

This first card not only uses the One Big Meaning sentiment but also the Falling Flowers stamp set (139553/139556).

And do you recognized the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper peeking out behind the flower – awesome right? And good news you can still get this paper until the end of the day today since the Holiday Catalog items on the Retirement List can be ordered while supplies last until 11:50 p.m. (MT) tonight!

And here is another wonderful card using the set and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137) is peeking out from behind the vellum card stock (101856).

Check out the lovely Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon – if you haven’t seen our shimmer ribbon in person it is just lovely.
