#1 Stampers Team Christmas Party & a Sneak Peek

We had such a great time last weekend at our #1 Stampers team party. I love getting together with my team and enjoying each others company. We also did a little bit of stamping and swapping as well as exchanged some amazing hand stamped gifts!

We played a cute grab bag game to determine who got which gift.

The amazing work of art that was inside that pretty paper.... Sue Brennan really out did herself creating the awesome gift!

Darlene Christian was the artist that designed these matching coasters and candles for the lucky recipient.

I designed this gift bag with punched red glimmer paper circles and a tag made with the Tags and Trimmings stamp set. I didn't make a hand stamped gift, however, inside were stamps and goodies from the upcoming NEW Occasions Catalog!

We played some super fun games and had a snowball fight to win prizes. I think this was the favorite game that night.

I also had the girls tear a Christmas Tree behind their backs. The best tree won a prize. I also gave a prize to the tree that wasn't the best ;) Here are some of the trees. Unfortunately neither the best or worst trees are in this photo. Not sure where they ran off to...

We also had a cool make n take with a new stamp set and accessories from the soon to be released Occasions Catalog 2018.

Lori is assembling her cute card before our next game.

Eclipse Technique Valentine Card

It may be a little early for Valentines Day cards, but I couldn't resist playing around with this popular new technique that I have been waiting to try. The eclipse technique is so very cool and super easy.

If you are attending card class this week, we will be making an eclipse card, so you're in luck!

For this card, I used the "This Little Piggy" stamp set and the new Stampin' Blends Markers. Of course it wouldn't be an eclipse technique without the main product... the Large Letters Framelit Dies.

The card base is real red 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card, Quilted Christmas designer paper is cut 5 1/4" x 4 and the whisper white is 5" x 3 3/4".

How stinkin' cute is this little piggy!?

IMG_1915

All I did was stamp the image with the tuxedo black Memento ink pad, onto whisper white cardstock, and colored it in with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers, in pink pirouette, old olive and daffodil delight. I then cut the X and O out with the Big Shot and Large Letters Framelits dies.

IMG_1918

Next, I mounted my whisper white cardstock onto my card- and attached the die cut X and O (in the cut out spaces) with mini dimensionals.

Don't forget the inside:

Thats it! Super simple.

I hope my card class attendees will love the card I have for them this week- its also Valentine related.

Thanks for stopping by today...

Until the next time....

Stampin Up "Ready for Christmas" Card with a Fun Fold

This is another fun fold for a cute Christmas card using the new Ready for Christmas stamp set. Ready for Christmas, comes with a coordinating framelit bundle, however, I only used the stamps to create this card.

I also used the brand spanking new Stampin Blends alcohol markers! Oh how I love these awesome pens!

IMG_0587

The designer series paper is from the Be Merry 12 x 12 paper pack and the cardstock colors are whisper white, cherry cobbler and pear pizazz.

When using the Stampin' Blends markers, the Tuxedo Black Memento pad is a must. It is designed to work with alcohol markers. Can you see how well shaded and blended these markers make my image look? They are so easy and effortless to use.

IMG_0588

Here's a closer look at the fun Z fold of the card. This fold was very simple to create. I folded the  4 1/4" x 11" cherry cobbler cardstock in half. Then I folded the front flap of the card, back up to the fold. So, I actually just folded the front flap in half to meet the side fold of the card.

IMG_0589

Here's another angle of the Z fold card.

IMG_0590

There are so many stamps and dies in this adorable stamp set and coordinating framelit set that the possibilities really are endless!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Until the next time...

Gift Card Holder using Merry Little Labels

Last week at my Card Class, we made this unique and fun Christmas gift card holder. The ladies, were loving it!

I also used the darling, Be Merry designer series paper to decorate this cool gift card holder.

This is the card completely closed. I layered the Stitched Shapes Framelit ovals in whisper white and cherry cobbler cardstocks.

IMG_0581

Here's the inside:

IMG_0583

The whisper white cardstock is cut at 4 1/4" x 11". Its folded in half and then scored at 2 1/4" to form the pocket for the gift card.

I used tear tape to adhere the ends of the pocket and a 1" circle punch half way down on the circle, to from the thumb scoop.

I adhered the oval with 2 dimensionals, on the right side so that the left flap could slip underneath.

IMG_0584

The Be Merry designer paper is cut at 3x4, 2x4 and 1x4 inches. The largest piece is adhered to the outside left and the smallest is adhered to the inside pocket of the card.

IMG_0582

Isn't it cool? I can't wait to give a few of these out this Christmas!

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Tags and Trimmings Holly Berry Card

 

I love holly berries, the color, the pointed leaves and the round shiny berries, just make me smile. The stamp set, Tags and Trimmings has the perfect variety of berries and holly, plus a whole lot more.

We made this card at Kim's Card Class last week. Its so simple and pretty. I used a color of ink that I don't use very often- rose red- its a perfect mix of red and pink and I thought it would be a interesting departure from the typical real red for the berries.

I used wild wasabi for the holly leaves, as it compliments the rose red, perfectly.

IMG_0593

I also used the delicate and beautiful, Holly emboss folder on whisper white cardstock, for the background. Ahhh... I'm totally gaga over this emboss folder!

IMG_0592

The Starburst punch fits perfectly inside the 2 1/4" circle punch. The jagged edges of the whisper white look so cool against the old olive circle. I also punched out the berries with the 3/4" circle punch and popped them up with dimensionals.

IMG_0591

Sweet and simple hollies all around this humble Christmas greeting card. Perfect for those of you who need to make multiples for all of your friends and family this holiday season.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Christmas Around the World- Stampin Up Designer Paper

I'm sharing a quick and easy card with you today. Its very simple, but its very cute a colorful.

The stamp that I used is the Watercolor Christmas stamp set. This set also coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas Project kit that I posted a few weeks ago. I love the font used for the greetings in this set.

I framed the greeting with a die from the Layering Squares framelit set in always artichoke cardstock. The scallop square makes the greeting so charming.

IMG_0594

The Christmas Around the World Designer Paper really is super cute! The patterns in this paper pack, are everything that you would want for Christmas- including nutcrackers and christmas treats. This card has the traveling vehicles pattern, which is so awesome!

I also used the new Red Tinsel Ribbon to add a little sparkle and attached it with a glue dot. I stuck with traditional Christmas colors for this card: cherry cobbler, old olive and always artichoke. They blend perfectly with the designer paper.

IMG_0595

Well, thats the quick card of the day. I hope you enjoyed it!

Until the next time...
