Copper Carols of Christmas

Big Shot/ Holidays / Special Days/ Paper crafting/ Projects

Hey stampers! Today's sample is a Copper Carols of Christmas card. Even though it is still summer here in Texas, my customers are already asking for Christmas card ideas! The “busy-ness” of the holidays seems to start earlier each year so it's never a bad idea to start thinking of ideas and purchasing supplies.

I absolutely love all our coordinating copper products and I think they add just the right amount of dazzle to this card.

I've included both Copper Trim and Copper Foil in my supply list. Copper trim is used here, but you could easily use Copper Foil if you prefer! Having choices is one of the things I love about Stampin' Up! products. We offer a wide range of colors and style to suit anyone's taste. Feel free to “case” any project I post. If you like, change it up to fit your particular style!

Every year I offer a free one on one Christmas Card consultation service to get your creative juices flowing. You and I will sit down in person for an hour and discuss ideas to come up with the perfect solution for your needs. If you don't live local to me, we can set up a phone call or skype chat. Please do give me a shout.  Together we'll design the perfect project!

Lovely Words Thinlits Friend Mini Crate

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Projects/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Tuesday Tips

Hey stampers! Today's project is a Lovely Words Thinlit Friend Mini Crate. I actually whipped this up when I got home from work today. Seriously, it took me less than 30 minutes, start to finish.

I love the Wood Crate Die for making little gifts for my friends, customers and downline. I am over the moon excited that Stampin' Up! will be putting  packages of 3″ x 3″ Whisper White envelopes into the upcoming holiday catalog going live on September 1. It is so easy to create a special notecard using our paper and embellishments. Adding a coordinating envelope is the perfect finishing touch for this Mini Wood Crate Die project.

Let me share how I put this project together.

First, I chose my paper for the little notecard. I picked the Daffodil Delight/Old Olive flower piece from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack for the top layer. I cut a 6″ x 3″piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock for my base, a 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ piece of Old Olive Cardstock for the next layer, finishing with the DSP on the top. I used a 3″ piece of Daffodil Delight Double-Stitched ribbon (I used the side with little lines; the other side has little x's…TWO choices with one roll of ribbon!) and incorporated the “friend” die from the Lovely Words Thinlits. I cut “friend” out of Dazzling Diamonds Paper and used a Stampin' Sponge to add a little pop of Old Olive ink on top. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the word, rather than leaving it in the frame. These little dies are so versatile! I'm working on a video to show you different ways they can be used.

For the finishing touches to my notecard I found a button in my voluminous collection (yes, I am a button hoarder!) to pop onto the front of the crate and I added a piece of coordinating DSP to the inside of the envelope.

To order any of the supplies used for this project, just click on a picture below.

ps: if you aren't currently using a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I would love to be yours and to send you the new Holiday Catalog. Just shoot me an email with your contact info and I'll get one out to you right away!

Ready for the Holidays?

Announcements/ Big Shot/ Holidays / Special Days/ Stamping

Are you ready for the holidays? Every year the holiday season is here before I know it. If you are ready to start your holiday projects and cards, you might want to consider this early release bundle.

Stampin' Up! announced the early release of the Carols of Christmas Bundle. this early release began on August 1st and these products will be featured in the Holiday Catalog that goes live on September 1st – woo hoo!

The stamp set and coordinating dies can be purchased individually or you can save 10% when you purchase the bundle!

Don't forget! You can use any bonus day coupon codes earned in July to purchase these Carols of Christmas products (or any other products you choose).

This card was created with the bundle and a small strip of the Be Merry Designer Series Paper (DSP). Notice the copper trim behind the sentiment piece. I think it adds just the right amount of elegance to this card. There's also a coordinating pack of cardstock featuring 3 of the colors in the DSP, so you'll have plenty for all your projects!

Thanks for stopping by today and please let me know if you have any questions. I'm here to help you get ready for the holidays and with anything else you might need! 🙂

Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Join My Team/ Mojo Monday

Hey stampers! Its seems like most of the cards I've been creating lately are for birthdays. Today's sample, Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card, is easy to put together and Stampin' Up!'s Large Letters make personalization a breeze! I love our Lemon Lime Twist In Color, especially with this Night of Navy Background.

Did you know that you can get these for free along with a ton of other stuff. How?

The CRAZY INSANE sign up special that runs only through July 31. Sign up for $99 and you get $125.00 worth of merchandise, at LEAST $100 worth of business supplies (if you want to try it out – includes eight brand new catalogs!), an Essentials Kit with five terrific tools valued at $52 and a sneak peek stamp set from the Holiday Catalog – worth $20. It costs you more NOT to get this deal than it does to get it! 🙂

If you do grab up this offer, you will be an official demonstrator on August 1 which means…………wait for it………….…………you get to preorder available products from the Holiday Catalog ON August 1 right along with all the other demos!

Yes, I have had a lot of people sign up – the deal is just too TIGGERIFFIC to pass up . In case you are wondering, NO, you do NOT have to start a business if you don’t want to.  Many people sign up  “just for the discount”  (did I mention that you get 20% off everything in the catalog as long as you are a demo?)  but decide later to actually run a business..  I was actually one of those “kit-nappers” but now I am a proud Stampin' Up! business owner and I wouldn't trade it for the world!
