Shiny Foil Snowflake Holiday Cards

Hi folks!  Just a few updates here today!

I’m going through the wonderful cards that were shared with me at the OnStage event last month, and I the two I have for you today both use the Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper – which are on the retiring Holiday list!

Just a note on that list – The Year End Sale is going on right now, and you can click on my online store links, or click here, to see which items are being retired, and which ones are available at a discount! These are as supplies last, so you’ll want to scoop these up asap!

Ok, back to the fun shiny cards!  This first one is from my upline Linda Bauwin, and she used the Smitten Mittens Bundle, along with the Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. The mitten is cut from the Gold Glimmer paper.. so many pretty metallic colors!

This next one is from Mary Rodgers, also using the Foils Snowflakes, and Year of Cheer DSP. She also used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle, white doilies and some gold metallic thread, finishing it off with some rhinestones. How festive!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!  I still have some more to share, so I will do my best to get them out here for you!


On a slightly different topic – if you missed the info on the Stamparatus the first time around, the second pre-order window is open!
There are a few changes from the first window – everyone can pre-order only one. And… the window will stay open all month! It doesn’t matter if 10 people reserve it or 1 million, they will ship in the order they reservations were received (starting in March). This will also be the last window open since they are not limiting how many people can reserve!!
Head over to my online store, login with your account – then click on the Stamparatus picture where it says “Reserve Yours Now!”
If you have any questions – just let me know!!


One last item – If you have not checked out the calendar lately, there is one more Card Class this month before the holidays! YAY!!

Make sure to let me know if you are coming so I can have enough supplies ready.
These will not be Holiday Cards, they will be other/all occasions. As a bonus, you will be able to see some of the NEW products coming up for January.

Saturday, Dec 16th at 1:00 pm
10 cards with envelopes (5 designs x 2 each)
Please bring your own adhesive.
Cost is $25, and non-refundable.
RSVP by Thursday night, Dec 14th at 9 pm.

I can’t wait to hear from everyone!
Happy Stamping!

Global Stamping Friends Hop – Halloween

Hi everyone!

It’s time for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, and it really is global!! This hops around every month on the first Friday. There are folks all around the world joining this, so please take a look at all the fun stuff people have to share. Each month is a different theme, and this month it’s Halloween!

For the past few years, we have had some unintentional pumpkin vines in our yard, and have had dozens of pumpkins each year. This summer we finally cleaned it all up, so sadly, I have no more pumpkins. That is why I chose pumpkins for my Halloween card!  Here is my creation:

www.stampinmak.com

I used the Hostess special stamp set, Merry Patterns, and paired it up with Season to Sparkle to get the Happy Halloween and spooky bird! That little bird fit right in perched up on top of the cute swirl!
The Designer Series Paper is the Painted Autumn, and is one of the packs on sale just for a few more days during the Buy 3 get 1 Free special.
Here’s a tip for this one – I actually cut the rectangle, then cut the pumpkins from the middle of it on the back side. You don’t see that part anyway, so no sense in wasting good pumpkins!
Some sponging on the white space, and some Burlap ribbon give it a more rustic feel.
One thing that is completely new is how I colored the words!!  Stampin’ Up is going to be releasing new alcohol markers, called Stampin’ Blends!  Right now you can only get them for a short time, and ONLY if you are a demonstrator!
If you want to join my team, you can get these in your starter kit!! Just contact me to learn more, or click here to join. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this not-so-spooky Halloween card, as I sure did! Don’t forget to leave a comment and visit all the other wonderful stops along the hop today!

Painted Harvest for PCC261 Color Challenge

Hi folks!  What an exciting start to the month of October!  Halloween blog hops (there is another one on Friday, so don’t miss it), TWO Stampin’ Up Specials, a Stamp-a-Stack class for World Card Making Day…  and a whole bunch of cards to share in between everything going on!

For this fall themed card I have for you, I used one of the Designer Series Papers included in the Buy 3 Get 1 Free special – Painted Autumn. It’s got a lovely mix of colors, and they fit right on with the colors picked for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #261.

The colors screamed ‘fall’ to me.. and as hard as I tried to make a neon green flower, it didn’t quite turn out. 🙂  So, I made a Coral one instead!

www.stampinmak.com

I love all the elements of this one.. It’s got a strip of the DSP with Cajun Craze behind it. The flower from Painted Harvest is stamped with both the Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze. I used both Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide for the middle and the leaves.
The vellum leaves are punched with the coordinating Leaf punch (available in the bundle to save 10%), and all washed over with some Wink of Stella for the sparkle.  A little bit of the Tranquil Tide ribbon is peeking out from the bottom. I also used the same Layered Leaves embossing folder as one of my Halloween cards since it fit in nicely with the other leaves.

Such a fun card to make! Don’t forget to check out the DSP special so you can pick up some of the fun papers to make your own creations! 🙂

Happy Stamping!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – Halloween

Welcome to this month’s “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”

Happy October folks!  It’s the first of the month, and time for the Halloween version of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

There are so many wonderful Halloween items in the Holiday Catalog, so I will be sharing more throughout the month. Today I’ve chosen a few of my favorites.

One of the holiday themed Designers Series Papers, Spooky Night DSP, is great for Halloween with the combination of Black and Orange, in this case – Pumpkin Pie.

www.stampinmak.com

One of the designs has multiple prints of the same tree with moon image, ready for cutting out and making multiple projects! I paired it up with the Cat Punch and some Black Rhinestones for the whole spooky cat look.
Along the side of the DSP is the Vintage Crochet Trim. The Happy Halloween stamp is from the Spooky Cat set which coordinates with the punch. You can get this as a bundle and save 10%! A little bit of vellum is behind the sentiment and I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder for the extra dimension in the background.

To finish it off I added Wink of Stella all over the tree:

www.stampinmak.com

Such a quick and easy card ready for Halloween!

Stay tuned for more Halloween samples, as well as information on some NEW Stampin’ Up specials for the new month. You won’t want to miss out on those!
