Toile Christmas & More

Cardinals. I love watching these birds with their bright pops of red dotting my yard and feeder. The Toile Christmas stamp set features the cardinal and is a lot of fun to color. Since it is a sketched image you’ve got lots of choices for coloring.

Check out these cards the first one has been done using our Stampin’ Blends for a bold image and

this next card uses our Water Color Pencils for a more subtle look.

And how about some more cards? These next cards use the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and the coordinating Pine Tree Punch making cards quick and easy!

The Still Scenes stamp set was used to create this lovely winter scene.

And the last card I’ll be sharing with you today is a fun fold card that highlights the Rustic Retreat stamp set. The sentiment piece locks the house panel closed and keep it in place.

This set has some wonderful all occasions sentiments in addition to the Christmas one you see here.

Enjoy!

Team Time Fun

Each month we gather to stamp and share with each other and so today I thought I’d share some of the fun cards that my team members have created over the past 2 months. I can’t believe they got buried on my desk and I haven’t shared them with you before now.

These first 2 cards use the Country Home stamp set (147678) from the Annual Catalog that you can find on page 90. This first one uses the beautiful Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) to choose it’s color pallet.

And both these cards have been colored with our Stampin’ Blends which gives them that great bold rich, color.

And here is fun fold card using the Beautiful Autumn Stamp set () and lovely Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (153520).

This card uses the fun impossible fold to create a card that pops up but mails flat.

And one using our Stitched Leaves Dies (153567) that has been teamed up with the colorful Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) again.

I really like the way these dies have the stitched edging that can be used on negative images like this and on the positive images too.

A gratitude journal made with the lovely Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (152488) – done in 6×6 and filled with paper to fill. A page for each person to personalize or use it as a lovely book to use yourself.

This next project uses the Grace’s Garden stamp set (151513) and is a fun fold card.

That once again folds flat for mailing.

This next grouping of projects is for Christmas and I’ll continue with some more fun folds. First this easel card that uses the Sweetest Time Bundle (155169).

And last but not least Shirley shared some little wooden pumpkins she made using the technique we used during our Peak Princess Event. You can see more and the tutorial for that project about that HERE.

And how about some Christmas projects? This first card uses the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (153487) and teams it up with the beautiful Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper (152493)

And for a here is a fun fold teepee card using our Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (150444) with it’s beautiful images.

Champagne foil Sheets (144748) were cut out using the Forever Flourishing Dies (152714) and were used as a backdrop for the sentiment. This card also folds flat for mailing simply by undoing the well placed velcro dot.

And now for some fun 3d projects – A cute little box that holds a couple of nuggets using the Little Treats stamp set (153516).

And fun tags using a variety of the holiday stamp sets found in the Annual and Holiday catalog. Can you name them all?

There are 4 different stamp sets used for these tags. Don’t look if you are still guessing but here is the list. Detailed Doves (153406), Christmas Gleaming (150464), Merry Moose (150494), and Perfectly Plaid (149418). Hand made tags for your packages make them extra special and are a lot of fun to make!

whew… what did I tell you, lots of great projects! I’m truly blessed with such a great team to share and stamp with.

#OnStage2019, Light & Peace and more

Today I thought I would share some of the Holiday Catalog swaps that I received during OnStage in Atlanta last weekend along with some more pictures.

I am going to begin with a 3d items I received – a cute tic tac holder using the Perfectly Plaid Suite of Products (153326). Absolutely adorable and perfect to give a little something!

And here are a couple of lovely cards. This first one uses the Perfectly Pines stamp stamp set (149418) teamed up with our Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper 9149478) from the Annual Catalog.

It is a square card that has a fun fold and opens a bit differently. Slip off the belly band and here is what you have.

fun, right?

And how about this elegant card using the Light & Peace stamp set (150516)?

Done in Blackberry Bliss it uses our Champagne Foil Sheets (144748), Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder (149575) along with our Silver (109131) and Shimmer Black Embossing Powders (149512).

These pictures just don’t do justice to these projects. (I’m still getting use to my camera and am really missing my old phone lol)

CentreStage

Friday night, Leaders gathered for what we call CenterStage, this is an event that includes a lovely evening of pampering before OnStage.

Susan and I stopped for a snap shot before going in. Who would have thought all those years ago she would inspire the dream of becoming a leader and earn an Incentive Trip. My husband Larry, joined me for the meetings after work regularly 10 years ago since we car pooled to his job after we moved. During one of the meetings, Susan spoke about the Alaskan Cruise which was the incentive trip that year. On the way home I can remember Larry asked me if I could do that to. I said yes, anyone could. He was so excited by the idea and has patiently supported me over the last 10 years as I worked toward this goal – and here I am! I am so appreciative and blessed to have earn the Maui trip and he’s soooo excited too!

I truly enjoy CentreStage as it is smaller and a chance to connect with old friends and meet new friends. Here I am with Lori whom I met during our first Atlanta OnStage years ago

And Barbara whom I’ve been doing my organized swaps with for years.

Stampin’ Up! is always very generous and there is always a special gift for us at the table

Our swag bags that include the NEW January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration Brochure, Squeal!!!

And we have a chance to hear news about what is going to happen and speak with the folks from the home office.

Here I am with Tanner, who is over the Southeast Area. I think it is always fun to see the people we work with online. Don’t you?

Just a little taste of what last Friday was like. Stop back by – I’ll be share more swap swaps and more!

Perfectly Plaid Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared with you our first Make n Take from my Holiday Catalog last weekend and today’s card is the second project everyone made that afternoon. The Wrapped in Plaid Suite of products has a lot of wonderful products both for card making and gifts. So it was a natural choice for the event and I love the fact that the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper comes in a 6×6 size so it is perfect for card making. You are going to love the gold foil that is in the patterns too.

Here is the card – It’s quick ad easy so it is great for making a ton of them for sending this Christmas.

Like it? This tree is so realistic with just one try since the stamp itself has wonderful shading to it. While I chose this tree for my project the plaid tree was also used and looked wonderful too. Don’t you love that? Lot’s of choices from just one set – and with the coordinating punch the choices are endless!

Here is a quick video tutorial for you showing you how I put this card together.
