I received this card from the super talented Donna Wizniuk…
So-Hoppy-Together-1How cute is this?! I want to point out a couple of things on this card.

First of all look at the shadow. Do you know where that came from? It’s the mountain from the Waterfront stamp set (upside down). Brilliant.

Secondly, she used our Stampin’ Blends to color the frog and unicycle. These high-quality, dual-tip markers in Stampin’ Up! exclusive colors will open a whole new world of colorful creativity. Each color marker comes in a light and dark shade and blend together beautifully. You can purchase them in a color combo pack, or individually.

Simple Stamping

You don’t have to be a creative designer to make a handmade card. Some of the most beautiful cards come from simple stamping.

Last night was my team meeting and the cards we made were beautiful and actually quite simple. We copied 2 ideas straight out of the newest Stampin’Up! publications.

We made the adorable treat packages found on pg. 8 of the Occasions Catalogue:Hey-Love-1The complete list of products used are right on the page so you don’t even have to go looking! They really DO make it easy. If you are looking for a cute packaging idea for Valentines Day, this would certainly fit the bill. And these images in the Hey Love stamp set are not just for kids! They’d be perfect for your fellow book club members or co-workers as well:)

View the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Brochure HERE.

 The other idea we copied was from the Sale-a-bration brochure on p. 8:Butterfly-Gala-1The background is just strips of cardstock cut at 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and adhered flat with SNAIL adhesive. Simple, right? I used a tiny, tiny amount of Tombo Multipurpose Glue to adhere the wooden butterfly element.

And it’s always nice to make the inside of the card look pretty too…
Butterfly-Gala-2Once again, all the supplies are listed right there. But this time, this project uses an item that you can get for free. When you buy the products to make the projects shown there, you’ll qualify for the free Sale-a-bration item used: Butterfly Elements.
Butterfly-ElementsThe greatest thing about the Butterfly Gala Bundle is that it includes an amazing punch that punches out both sizes of butterflies at once! And the details on these butterfly images are gorgeous. I’m not even a butterfly person and I love this bundle. Butterfly-Gala-Bundle-ImageThere are so many other options available if you like to keep things simple. Our kits for example are perfect if you like things all cut and ready for you. Contact me and I’d love to help you choose a crafting experience that is just right for you.

Class in the Mail – We Must Celebrate

Spring is coming and we must celebrate!! Although it’s a little difficult right now with all this snow on the ground. But let’s think positive.

I have a new class in the mail for you. This month we will be highlighting the adorable woodland creatures in the We Must Celebrate set.
We-Must-Celebrate-ImagesHow cute are they?! I have chosen 4 different cards featuring each one of them. You will fall in love with them! And they will be sure to bring a smile to the face of everyone who receives a card you’ve made with this set.

Here’s a little sneak peek…
Class in the Mail - March
How does it work?
You purchase the class…I pre-cut all the supplies and put together project packets and mail them to you (or arrange for pick up). Then you will receive an email with a .pdf that includes pictures and detailed instructions on how to create the 4 projects.

March Class in the Mail – We Must Celebrate 
You do the stamping and these cute creatures do the celebrating!
There is minimal coloring on these cards so you will need to have something on hand. I used the Blends Markers and our Stampin’ Write Markers, but you could use whatever method you’d like. If there are additional punched or Big Shot pieces needed, they will be included in your class packet.
Your class fee includes the We Must Celebrate stamp set, a package of Linen Thread, a package of Subtles Enamel Shapes, project supplies and a PDF file. (If you do not live local, a method of postage will need to be determined. I believe expresspost is about $10.)
Clear-Mount Class fee: $55 
(The product value is $44.25, so if you would like to get a Sale-a-bration item please choose other product to get you to the $60 mark.)
Wood-Mount Class fee: $68 
(The product value is $55.25, so if you would like to get a Sale-a-bration item please choose other product to get you to the $60 mark.)
Order your We Must Celebrate Class in the Mail today!
