I've met a really nice group of women at my fitness center's yoga class, and I thought I'd invite them over for tea and lattes after class.  We might even stamp a card together!  Just had to send a "proper" invitation, even though it's a very casual get together. 

Color scheme is Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze.
Tea cups are from Tea Shoppe stamp set – I cut the three in a row apart so I could use them individually more easily.
Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon is my only embellishment – but it's so pretty it's enough!
"You're Invited" is a part of the Oh, Hello stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.

That's it!  I printed out all the info and instructions to my house and tucked them inside.  I'm looking forward to a fun time making new friends!

Item No. 130730 Oh, Hello wood $25.95 OR
Item No. 130733 Oh, Hello clear $18.95
Item No. 125545 Tea Shoppe wood $34.95 OR

Merry Winter

Here's a cute winter-themed card that doesn't have to be Christmas.  We've done this card for several workshops, and people seem to love it!  The beautiful blues of Pool Party and Island Indigo are perfect for those "snowy" cards.  I used the Snow Burst Textured Embossing Folder with the Big Shot for the white background.  The Big Shot also came in handy for cutting the scallop circle with the Scallop Circle #2 Die.  Next I stamped the three images – 2 snowmen and the sled – on Whisper White card stock then punched the image out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch.  Be sure to stamp first – it's much easier!  Adding some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter using the 2-Way Glue Pen, plus a couple of Rhinestones and a piece of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, really stepped this card up.

Item No. 113469 Scallop Circle Die #2 $19.95

Congratulations to my Team Members – October 2011

A sincere "From the Heart Stampers" congratulations goes out to the top sales people on my team for the month of October!  We also had an AMAZING month with 12 new team members joining our group in October (and 4 more in November)!  You ladies rock!  And here's the special card I made them.

With the pretty prints in the Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper, it's easy to create beautiful color combinations!  Here I've used River Rock, Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy.  Although the suggested color for the designer paper is Island Indigo, the darker shade of blue gives this card a more vintage look.  I've also used a snip of Newsprint Designer Series Paper sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.  Sentiment is from Perfectly Penned and includes some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon.  Don't forget a bit of bling with Rhinestones!

Item No. 122890 Perfectly Penned wood $16.95 OR
Item No. 122892 Perfectly Penned clear $12.95
Item No. 122352 Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper $10.95

Happy Halloween!

Today's Halloween, and I could have sworn I had already shared this cute treat container with you!  But in looking back I found I hadn't!  So I'm going to post two different Halloween ideas for you today, in case you're scrambling to get ready for tonight's festivities.

This treat container was featured in our demonstrator magazine Stampin' Success, changed up a bit to suit my supplies.  I began with Basic Black card stock, rolled it in a cylinder and adhered both the side and the ends with Sticky Strip.  Before adhering the bottom, however, I punched a hole, slid in a Window Sheet and filled it with candy.  Rhinestones surround the opening for a fun effect.  I used Peach Parfait rather than Pumpkin Pie so that I could use some of our fun Peach Parfait 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon for the top.  The zig-zag piece comes from the Tasteful Trim Die and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The stripes on top and bottom are Whisper White card stock stamped with Solid Stripes stamp; top one every other stripe is colored in with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  Main image is from Got Treats stamp set and colored direct to rubber using Stampin' Write Markers, then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and tied on with some White Baker's Twine.

Item No. 119264 Peach Parfait 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon $8.95
Item No. 119246 Jewels Basic Rhinestones $4.95
Item No. 114323 Window Sheets $4.95
Item No. 115707 Solid Stripes stamp $9.95
Item No. 120893 Tasteful Trim Die $42.95
Item No. 119114 Got Treats stamp set wood $24.95 OR
Item No. 120627 Got Treats stamp set clear $17.95
Item No. 104294 Sticky Strip $6.95
Item No. 120907 Decorative Label Punch $16.95
Item No. 124262 White Baker's Twine $2.95

Here are the Halloween bags I made my 3 grandsons for trick or treating tonight.  I simply bought orange gift bags, made a personalized tag and tied them on.

Here's how the whole gift bag looks.

And here's a close-up of the tag.  It begins with Sweet Centers stamp set stamped in Lucky Limeade Classic Ink.  I punched the center hole out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  The Circle Treat Cup is filled with Pumpkin Pie card stock punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack circle punch.  Do they look at all like little bitty pumpkins?  That's what I was going for!  I fed Whisper White card stock through my printer and simply typed each boy's name, printed it out and adhered it to the Basic Black rectangle. The Crop-A-Dile punched the hole in the top and I fed through both Basic Black 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Lucky Limeade 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon through to tie.  Now I'd better get ready for the party!  Have a spooky night!

Item No. 116521 Sweet Centers $29.95
Item No. 119850 1-3/4" Circle Punch $16.95
Item No. 118309 Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack $16.95
