Great Color Combo!

Doesn't this yummy card just ooze "royalness"?  It's Concord Crush,  one of the In Colors, paired with Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler.  Love it!  This card was made for me by my daughter and upline Aly Schilling to celebrate my promotion to Sr. Manager!  It was a fun time with balloons, flowers and even a terrific gift – the brand new Petal Cone Die for my Big Shot!  The stamped circle motif is from Just Believe and "celebrate" comes from Fabulous Phrases – a set I have and keep forgetting to pull out!  It fits perfectly with the Word Window Punch.  There's lots and lots of interest with this card.  Two Regals Collection Buttons get a "dress up" with a thin piece of Whisper White card stock through the centers.  Several corners are rounded with the Corner Punch, There's a scallop circle behind the stamped image using the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and coordinating scallops at the bottom from the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  The Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder create the texture on the Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The fabulous Concord Crush polka dot paper comes from the Hostess Level 1 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack, and it's all topped off with a piece of gorgeous 1/2" Stitched-Poly Concord Crush Ribbon.  And to top it all off, this incredible card was made using the Stampin' Sound Recordable Card so when I opened it, Aly gave me a big congratulations with her own voice! Whew – now that's a special card! 

I don't usually give the supply list for cards that I don't create myself, but I wanted you to have the item number to order these great recordable cards.  They were in the Holiday Mini Catalog so aren't featured in a catalog right now, but they're still available!

Simple Scalloped Square


Here's an idea for a simple thank you card.  You can make lots of these if you need thank yous for a big occasion, and they'll be done in a snap but still look fabulous.  Just begin by choosing a designer series paper package – the first card uses the Level 1 Hostess In Color Designer Series Paper Pack (earn this free for hosting a qualifying private stamping class!) and the second uses Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper.  It's easy to plan your card stock and ink colors – just take your palette from the designer paper of your choice!  Grab the Scallop Square Punch and punch out 5 different designs from the paper pack.  Remember, each piece of designer paper has 2 sides, so you have 12 choices in prints!  Adhere these squares with Dimensionals, then add a thank you sentiment.  I used Curly Cute and inked the two words up separately using a Stampin' Write Marker so I could stamp them on two lines instead of just one.  You can add a snip of ribbon like I did in the first card or leave it off as in the second.  Add some Jewels, either Basic Rhinestones or Basic Pearls, and you're done!

A Fresh, Fun Look

I've been congratulating Ruth Petrovich a lot lately, and rightly so!  Ruth joined my Stampin' Up! team of demonstrators, the From the Heart Stampers, at the end of February and is going strong!  Ruth just recruited her second person, and I made this card for her.  It's fun, summery look with Daffodil Delight (new Brights Core Color), Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz (new In Color) and some designer paper from Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper.  I used the Eyelet Border Punch to create the sweet white edging and some Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon for a little accent.  The main image is from Charming stamp set stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink with pieces cut from the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine using Little Leaves Sizzlits Die and Birds &  Blooms Sizzlits 4-Pack Dies for the flower.  A small Clear Rhinestone Brad decorates the center.  Once completed, this card needed a little something in the bottom right corner.   I had planned to stamp a "congrats" greeting but it just didn't fit.  So I accordion folded the corner and added a piece of Whisper White card stock to the back to peek through.  Love this touch!

Stamping 101 Library Class

I've had so much fun teaching two sessions of a beginner rubber stamping class at both the Naples Library in Naples, NY, and the Wood Library in Canandaigua, NY.  Thought I'd share the projects from these classes with you.

This card got its "wow" from cutting the frame and oval from the Big Shot using the Scallop Frame Die.  We stamped a beautiful tree from the Thought & Prayers stamp set in Old Olive Classic Ink and added a sentiment from that same set.  We punched a few flowers using the 3 Flower Punch and Perfect Plum card stock and attached them to the card with some Gold Brads.  A piece of Old Olive 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon completes this easy yet effective card.

The next card is a bright, fun birthday card showcasing several of the In Colors — Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and a bit of Soft Suede.  We used the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set and colored in the main image with Blender Pens and Stamp Pads.  A dash of Bermuda Bay 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon coordinates so beautifully!

It's the middle of November, so no card class this time of year would be complete without making a Christmas card.  We used several products from the Holiday Mini Catalog to create this card — Delightful Decorations stamp set and coordinating Ornament Punch, Four the Holidays sentiments stamp set and Silver Elastic Cord.  Colors used are Bordering Blue and Rose Red.  An extra bit of glitz comes from the 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on both of the ornaments.  The Eyelet Border Punch was used to complete this elegant card.

I like to show my students that stamping isn't just for card making and scrapbooking, but you can make wonderful gift-giving items as well.  And 80% of the students voted this their favorite project out of the four the completed!  Here's a simple pouch with topper using our Small Cellophane Bags.  I showed how to ink up the rubber stamp from Holiday Best (Level 1 hostess exclusive stamp set) with markers to get a multi-colored image and brought in the colors from the Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper that's wrapped around the chocolates.  A bit of Elegant Eggplant Rick-Rack from the Ribbon Originals Orchard packet gives an added bit of interest.
