Card Class and a Coffee Cafe Card

I've been wanting to post about my fun Card Class a week or so ago, but I didn't get time to do it with all the Thailand trip posts that I was working on this past week.

Well, I finally am able to post our card class fun and a cute card that everyone made from the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating framelits.

I think this card was one of the favorites. Everyone loves coffee, don't they?

How cute are these two? Jackie and Deb are checking out all the great card samples that I have on display during class.

Here's a close up of the Coffee Cafe card: I will post the supplies used, at the end of this post.

I made up a bunch of cello bags with tags made from the "A Little Wild" stamp set. Inside were cute Thailand elephant magnets and some candy from both China and Thailand, for all the ladies at card class!

I think Deb liked her gift :)

Kennedy, Liz and Sue were so funny- they were going balistic over the Coffee Cafe card- they loved it!

(I think I need a haircut)

I always have so much fun at card class with all these super adorable and fantastic people. I can't wait until the next one!

Until the next time....

My Swap Pile

So, remember the Lemon Zest card that I posted the other day? The one that I made for the Stampin' Up Advisory Board Alumni swap?

Well, I wanted to share the other swaps from the other girls, with you.

So here's the whole kit and kaboodle!

Thanks for checking in- I'm probably in New York watching the 4th of July fireworks or in China walking on the Great Wall right now... ;)

Until the next time...

Zippity and Zesty- Stampin' Up Swap

Have I mentioned that I love this Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Builder Punch? Well, if I haven't, let me just say that I do love it! I like that I can use bright and sunny colors and it looks super sweet.

This is a card that I designed for a special swap that I host with other members of the Stampin Up Advisory Board Alumni.

I wanted to wait to post it, so that all the swappers had their cards back and I wouldn't ruin the surprise.

I used the daffodil delight, lemon lime twist and basic black inks as well as the lemon lime twist, basic black, daffodil delight and whisper white cardstocks.

I attached the lemon over cardstock that was embossed with the Layering Leaves emboss folder. I think it goes perfect with this stamp set.

Naturally I had to add a few Glitter Enamel Dots scattered around the card. The colors go so well with the inks and cardstock that I used.

And how about that stunning berry burst ribbon? Its so vibrant and gorgeous.

Here's a bunch ready to be shipped out to my fellow demonstrator friends.

IMG_7127

Seriously, this card makes me so happy and giddy. I just can't get enough of this yummy stamp set!

Thanks for visiting.

I'll be leaving soon, but plan to schedule some posts for while I'm away on the Stampin' Up Incentive Trip.

One more thing... If you place an online order with me, be sure not to check the box "No Contact" because I won't be able to thank you or send you a hand stamped card.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Oh So Eclectic

I have a cool card to share with you that we made at Card Class this week. Its made with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.

This is the stamp set that is featured on the front of the New Stampin' Up Catalog. Its one of my favorites.
This set paired with the Eclectic Layer Thinlits and the coordinating Naturally Eclectic designer paper, is a real show stopper.

IMG_7215

This was a favorite of all the cards at class. It was very simple and super cool. I layed a piece of designer paper behind the die cut image. It think it kind of looks like stained glass.

IMG_7217

I used peek a boo peach and berry burst inks to match the designer paper. I also used soft sky and tranquil tide cardstock which also matched the paper. I love how beautiful those colors look together. And so super simple to make.

IMG_7216

Well, thats all for now folks. I'll be leaving on the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to Thailand next week and I won't have my laptop.

I'll be posting again before I leave, but I'll be off the grid for a couple of weeks.

Thanks for dropping by today.

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Swap and Incentive Trip documents

I received a long awaited packet in the mail last week. It was our flight itinerary, luggage tags, passport case and agenda for the Stampin' Up! All Expense Paid Trip for Two to Thailand!

I'm so excited to be traveling with my daughter on this trip. Total girl time! We have also decided to stop in NYC and Beijing China on our way to Thailand.

Lots of planning and packing to do to get ready- but it will be worth it.

My passport case all wrapped in the new pretty peek a boo peach ribbon.

IMG_5448

And inside is all the goodies. Aren't those elephant luggage tags adorable? We get new luggage tags each trip, depending on the destination and the theme of the trip.

IMG_5451

During the trip, Stampin' Up! sponsors an optional card swap. I decided to use the new Climbing Orchid stamp set and dies.

I think this is such a gorgeous stamp set. I haven't decided yet, if this will be the actual swap. I may tweak it here and there or change the colors or layout. I haven't quite decided - but I am loving creating many beautiful orchids with it, for sure.

  IMG_5515

I used peek a boo peach and berry burst cardstock and inks for the flowers and lemon lime twist for the leaves. Its a simple "protoype" right now.

Here's a close up: Notice the fabulous Glitter Enamel dots. Love those sparkly things!

IMG_5516

I'll be sure to post the finished swap before I leave. It may be similar to this one or I may just change the entire card. Who knows? But I am enjoying this set so very much!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

Wood Words Variation

I have a quick post on a simple variation of the Wood Words stamp set that I used on my previous blog post. I used the same card fold and colors as well as the same two stamp sets, Wood Words and Label Me Pretty.

I only changed a few things to make this card look a little different.

IMG_5435

I added the beautiful cluster of flowers from the Wood Words set in crumb cake ink and I also used the new Wood Textures designer paper stack.

IMG_5436

The same simple Z fold- you can check out the blog post previous to this one for the measurements and tips.

IMG_5437

I also used very vanilla cardstock on the inside of this one.

IMG_5434

Thought I'd share this one with you, as you can basically use all the same supplies.

I just received my box full of more new Stampin Up stamps and accessories, so I will be playing with my goodies tonight.

Stay tuned for some new creations coming soon!

Thanks again for stopping by.

Until the next time...
