Snow Snow Go Away and Don’t Come Back Another Day!

I have had enough of the white stuff for this winter. I woke up to 6" of new snow, just when I thought winter might be over and I would be seeing more signs of spring. I had one crocus that was in bloom and now it is buried. Oh well, I can get some exercise shoveling and then get a cup of coffee and go down to my craft room and stamp spring cards!

Keeping with thoughts of spring flowers, I am posting a display board from Leadership featuring the Sweet Summer Stamp set. You can get the Sweet Summer stamp set free during Sale-a-bration with a $50.00 net merchandise purchase, however, only 9 more days to take advantage of this freebie as Sale-a-bration ends March 31.

Here is a close up of two of my favorite cards on this display board:

Doesn't these remind you of spring? Well, that's it for today, I need to go out and shovel (notice I said need not want) then I can get busy stamping with the new Four Frames stamp set and Paisley Petals Designer Series paper. You can purchase these two items during the month of April unless you are a demonstrator, then you were able to buy them this month (just one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator).  I love the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper, I have made 9 cards already and plan to spend the afternoon stamping more. And, the Four Frames stamp set matches the Decorative Label punch!   Do you want a quick peek of one of the cards?  Click HERE

I have been working on a bunch of new classes and will be posting those shortly, I have e-mailed the flyer to my customers and will post the classes on my calendar this week. If you are one of my customers and did not receive it, contact me and I will send it out.  Have a great day!

Leadership Swaps and Bridal Show Invitation & Table Favor!

 This post was created for SUDSOL's 4th Blog Tour, although the tour is over, I have left my projects for my followers to view.

My first project is one I made for my leadership general swap card:

SUO Stampin' Up! 2011 Occasions Mini Word Play, Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper, Jeannine Tarrio

I wasn't sure I cared for the adornment embellishments when I saw them in the 2011 Occasions Mini. I order a package and when they came I fell in love with them! You really have to hold them to feel/see their beauty. They are the perfect accessory for the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.


1. Crumb Cake: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

2. Rose Red 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

3. Springtime Vintage Designer series Paper 4" x 4"

4. Always Artichoke 1 1/4" x 4", then punch one long edge with Scallop Trim Border Punch

5. Baja Breeze 3" x 1 3/4" Crumpled

6. Very Vanilla 2 3/4" x 1 1/2" stamped with Always Artichoke and sponged with Crumb Cake

Other Supplies: 1/2" Chantilly Crochet, Adornments, Crystal Effects, Stampin' Dimensionals

When I demonstrated this card recently, Cheryl asked if a Mini Glue Dot would work to attach the adornment instead of Crystal Effects. You could use the Mini Glue Dot if you attached the Adornment directly to the cardstock, however, on this card with the 1/2" Chantilly Crochet between the cardstock and adornment the Crystal Effects really holds better.

Project Two:

The first picture is a Peppermint Patty Basket I made a Leadership Wrapper Swap. each of the 4 peppermint patties have a different stamped top. The top one uses the For you stamp from Sale-a-bration set Punch Bunch. The second uses Elegant Thank You and the third and fourth uses Great Frinds set and Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

  Accessories: Silver Brads, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, 1/16" Hole Punch.  Here is another view:

Below is a stepped up basket where I added Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a brad from Sweet Stitches Frabric Designer Brads.

Basket Details:

1. River Rock 5" x 5" scored at 1 1/2" on all 4 sides.

2. Springtime Designer Series Paper – 4 each at 2" x 1 1/2"

3. Handle Rose Red strip 1" x 6" punched to creat handle.

The last two projects were created for a Bridal Show I did earlier this month. These are two of the samples I created: a wedding invitation and matching table favor.

The invitation is a gatefold card with a belly band closure. The matching favor was made with Stampin' Up!'s Milk Carton Die, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, and the Big Shot.
