I have been seeing these pop up (no pun intended) and I had to give it a go myself. After a few alterations, it came out well I think! The birthday one was my first try. Not too bad. But the "thinking of you" was for a team challenge and I like that one best. It uses some sneak peek items from the upcoming Occasions catalog and Sale A Bration brochure. I made the flowers stand up by using a stem made by the window sheet. I think I need to have a class on this card!
Thanks for stopping by

And at Christmas time, you definitely want some bling!
The first set, I did Thanksgiving morning before we went out to a friend's house for dinner...

Here are the cards we made: I love the triple time stamping! We used Snowflake Soiree which was a carry over from the catalog last year. We stamped it in Soft Sky and Smoky Slate (both new colours this year) on whisper white card stock and used Soft Sky card stock. Adding the finishing touch was the frosted finishes, giving it a bit of bling.
Another stamp that was in the carry over from last year, available online is called Evergreen. I love the 2 step look on this card. I stamped the tree in Always Artichoke then inked the layer stamp in the frost white shimmer paint (on the clearance rack). I punched a star out of the silver glimmer paper and added some taffeta ribbon and ribbon slide (also from the clearance rack)
I love the window shaker card! I first saw this when Stampin Up! showed it in the opening video for convention 2013. It is a standard size card. and the shaker window uses whisper white card stock and a piece of window sheet. The images stamped are the greeting from More Merry Messages (another carry over from last year) and the single star stamp. I love that stamp-there are other possibilities with it. It also uses the hot trend of washi tape. I added some buttons (retired brights, and new brights) and some bling with the glimmer paper in red and gold and a basic gem in the center of the star. It's a cute little fun card.
I love these gift card holders! the top note die is really cute. There are multi layers, but it comes together rather nicely. The colours of card stock used are whisper white, gumball green and cherry cobbler. The DSP is from the seasons of style paper stack (in the new holiday catalog). I used cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon and perfect polka dot embossing folder. And the stamp set Very Merry Tags in the holiday catalog. On the inside you can slide in a gift card or cash.

I like how the water colour look came out. I really do like my SU! aqua painter! For some reason I can master that better than the blender pens. Perhaps I'll have to work on those as well. In the mean time-I'll stick with my aqua painter :) I also added some SU! Dazzling Diamonds on the trim of the Santa hat, cuffs, and trim on his suit.
