Carols of Christmas - Take 3!

Well, here it is, Friday - and I did all three days, just as I promised. :D (That is, if Blogger posts as I have scheduled them...! :D ) I didn't mean to, but I used a retired box to do this with. I bed your pardon. :D I will try and use something more current soon... :D
SO very simple! I mixed a little clear embossing powder with Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the embossing on the ornaments all the way around the box.

Card stock: Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Whisper White
Stamp set: Carols of Christmas
Accessories: Gold foil sheets, Stampin' Write markers (Real Red and Old Olive), Gold and clear embossing powders, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Fast Fuse

SO simple to make great packaging! If you've got a box you want to cover, you could use Crumb Cake panels that are cut the same size as the sides of your box. I wanted simple, but elegant. And I LOVE holly! :D

Enjoy your weekend! Why don't you put your Stampin' Up!® order together, and contact me? :D Or go to my business site, and click the SHOP NOW tab. Be SURE and make the time to STAMP something! :)

Carols of Christmas Preview - Take 2!

Good morning! I promised I'd continue with the samples; this is one I did because I already had the stars cut from gold foil and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I wanted to show that the Card Front Builder Thinlits could be used easily with other things - and I wanted a simple card to show off the complexity of that gold star cut. I really love how CLEAN this design is.

Card stock: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Ink: Versamark
Stamp set: Star of Light
Accessories: Starlight Thinlits, Card Front Builder Thinlits, Big Shot, White embossing powder, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, Gold foil sheets, SNAIL, Mini Dimensionals

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!!! And make sure to take the time to stamp SOMETHING! :D

Holiday Mini Coming Soon!

Hi, everyone! YES, I know it's been a long time since I blogged. Turns out, I've been getting really ill for a while. I'm feeling better, and it's almost my favorite time of the year - so I'm going to try to blog a little more often. :D

As a matter of fact, my goal for this week is to get 3 posts up - all because it's the Holiday Mini preview! YOU can purchase a tiny taste of the new Mini!

Stampin' Up!® has made a video to show you a little more about this bundle...

It's a REALLY fun bundle....

And the possibilities are endless. I have, however, managed to come up with three different samples to show you. this first one is completely this bundle; be SURE and come back the rest of this week to find new samples!

Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Garden Green, Soft Suede
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Stamp set: Carols of Christmas
Accessories: Card Front Builder Thinlit Dies, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Embossing Paste, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, SNAIL, Mini Dimensionals

It's so very, very easy to make a beautiful card with just a few things! :) I had to do the embossing paste - I've been watching some other demos demonstrate via video some different little things, and I love the texture and sparkle this added.

Next up: mixing up thinlits to make another beautiful, simple card! Stay tuned - and be sure to make the time to STAMP something! :D

Congratulations to ME - and that means a chance to WIN for you!!! :D

Hi, y'all! :) If you're not local, you probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth. Sorry. Health, time, and yadda yadda. :D

So! Since I last posted, I celebrated my 15th anniversary with Stampin' Up! Yea, me!

But that's not what the congratulations is all about - last month, I passed a milestone with Stampin' Up! - one that has some benefit with it: I have lifetime sales of over $100,000.

Yes, a lot of it has come out of my own pocket - I keep buying new toys, even if I'm not inspired at the moment. :D But I also really love our products, and I love bundling products to save money. So I get them, and I look at them, and I share them, and tine I finally try them out. :D

ANYWAY. I'm sure that's not why you are reading this post. I'm SURE you want to know where the winning part comes in... :)

I didn't reach that sales goal by myself. YOU have helped me reach it. And I am SO blessed - if you've ever stamped with me, attempted to stamp with me :D, or purchase from me to stamp on your own - to have you in my life. Even if only virtually.

SO. Here's the winning part:

I AM GIVING AWAY TWO (2) $25 GIFT CERTIFICATES and a grand prize $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are the rules:
1. You enter by leaving a comment on THIS post. It has to make sense.
2. You may enter DAILY from now until MIDNIGHT CST on 10/25/2016. Each comment MUST be different.
3. You may place an order through my business site (CLICK HERE to go!) for an extra FIVE entries for every $50 in merchandise you purchase.
4. You may schedule a party/place a party order (Sorry, November hostess, you don't get this benefit) between now and MIDNIGHT CST on 10/25/2016 for an extra 20 entries.
5. I will use a random generator online to choose our three winners.
6. I will also be giving my dedicated customers and hostesses bonus entries without their having to do anything, as long as they've ordered/hosted in the past year. THIS IS AT MY DISCRETION!!!!

So! Anyone is welcome to order; share if you wish! I hope to have a new card or something to share soon - but we're about to go on a trip. :) That's why you get TWO weeks to enter!

Thank you for being faithful, and for sticking around! :)

Have a WONDERFUL day! Make sure to mate the time to stamp SOMEthing!

Happy Wednesday!

And I have a happy card for you today. This is another of the masks that come in the  Happy Patterns Decorative Mask (item #138313) set. The same time I did the SHINE! card, I did this mask.I took my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write marker and wrote "happy" in the "happy" open area. :)

It's just a happy card. :) Wouldn't you have fun pulling this out of an envelope?

OK, I'm outta here. Have a WONDERFUL day, and be sure to make the time to stamp something!

Easter Lamb - 2016 Occasions Mini

Happy Wednesday! :)

Today's card is brought to you by the Occasions Mini - specifically, the Easter Lamb stamp (item #140740).

Colors are Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Lovely Lilac, and Basic Gray.

Be sure to notice the large dot embossing folder - a little texture is my fave! :D

I used Stampin' Write markers to color this cutie in - or an Aquapainter. I just think he's too cute for words! :)

OK, I'm outta here! Have a wonderful day! Be sure and make the time to stamp something!
