A little Christmas fun...

I made a few Christmas cards this past Saturday at a team meeting.  I just love when I don't think I'm really going to get into a stamp set, and then I see something really cute with it.  This is the case with the Stampin' Up! Color me Christmas set...

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. 

This little guy is really cute!  I love using the SU! thinlet card dies.  They make such cute cards. And of course you can't go wrong with a little bling with the SU! silver paper.  I can't wait to make more Christmas cards :)
thanks for stopping by and having a look!  Until next time...
get your stamp on :)

Christmas Event!

I'm super excited to be offering my first Christmas Event!  I am doing it over 2 days-you can choose which day you want to attend.  There will be loads of cards made, gift card holders and a really cute 3D project!  If you'd like to attend, message me as soon as possible.  Space is limited, I only have a couple spots left on both days!  Cost includes all the projects, and lunch, snacks and drinks. 
All you need to bring is a trimmer, scissors and a bone folder. 

I look forward to seeing you there!

it's been a little quiet...

Hi folks.  I realize I've been a little quiet on here, but there has been some great things brewing!

first of all... if you're looking to get a jump in getting started on making cards...have I (and by that I mean Stampin' Up!) got something for you!!!

Why go to the store when a birthday, graduation, wedding or even a time for expressing gratitude comes up? The Everyday Occasions Card making Kit puts cards for all of those events right at your fingertips, and best of all, they'll be handmade! The kit contains everything necessary (minus adhesive and scissors) to create 20 beautiful cards for almost any occasion, and it comes in a beautiful box to store them in.
I am really excited about this.  Because it is a nice answer for those just starting out to make the cards-and have them on hand.  The tips and idea booklet is something you can adapt to make more-when you want to expand out.  It just breaks it down so it's not overwhelming. 
another new thing that Stampin' Up! has been expanding with is the photopolymer stamp sets...and now there is a new one called- Bite Me

these photopolymer stamp sets are really cute and durable.  I love that you can "see" through them to stamp. 
ok...I'm going to leave you with that-for now... there IS more!!!  visit my site to see more!
