Festival of Prints Cards

Here are 2 cards that I made using the same layout and the same paper stack.  I love the diversity that the Festival of Prints paper stack gives you.  It's available for just a little longer (through January 2nd) from the Holiday Catalog.  

The images are from the stamp set Sassy Salutations and it gives just the right touch of whimsy!  You could use any greeting however.  Add a little trim, and other embellishment and you have a simple card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Simple Christmas Tags

These cute little tags were a make and take project I planned for a stamping party back in November.  So quick and cute!  Everyone loved them.

Here's what you need to re-create the tags.
6x3-inch rectangles of card stock, scored along the 6-inch side at 3".  This gives you 3-inch square tags that open up so you can write on the inside.  You could just as easily make the tags a single 3-inch square if you wanted to save on paper.
Scraps of Whisper White (or other neutral colored card stock for the images), and coordinating colored card stock for the scallop.

No Peeking stamp set #126290 [w], $24.95 or #126282 [c], $17.95

1-3/4" Circle & 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punches.

Assorted colors of Stampin' Write Markers.

I used a 1/8" circle punch and some Baker's Twine to attach the tags to a package.

Ornament Elegance Kit -- Don't Wait!

No surprise!  Stampin' Up! has sold out of all these kits.
You can still make them the old fashioned way, though!


December 3, 2012

The ornament on the cover of our holiday catalog is such a hit that Stampin' Up! is making it available to you--just in time to deck the halls with terrific trimmings you've made yourself! We've simplified this fun project so that you can quickly and easily achieve the same results. 

In addition to the kit, all you need is a glue gun, scissors, and adhesive. (Our Anywhere Glue Sticks [104045] are perfect for assembly.) Want greeting or place cards to go with those ornaments? The Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set (W 128048 C 128051) gives you perfect coordination. Fancy a little sparkle and shine? Sprinkle on our Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter (102023)!

The Ornamental Elegance Kit (132832) is $14.95 (enough for 10 ornaments) and includes:

 * Die-Cut Cardstock Elements
 * Cherry Cobbler 3-1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon
 * Natural Linen Thread
 * Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons 
 * Large Pearl Basic Jewels

Order these now so you will have plenty of time to make them for Christmas gifting--or for your family tree! Available while supplies last.

Should you have any questions,
