This card is from our FANCY FOLDS class this month; it was a really fun class to do, and we used the LOVE YOU MUCH bundle on several of the cards.
PLEASE NOTE: Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to take advantage of the special 20% off on this bundle! It contains three items that are new to this Idea Book:
Candy Lane Designer Series Paper
Heart to Heart Punch
LOVE YOU MUCH stamp set
If you'd like to take advantage of the special pricing, please CLICK HERE and go to the SHOP NOW link at the top, then click on SPECIALS.Now, then. :) On to the details! This is knowns as a SWING or FLIP card; it takes some special cutting to do the swing window, but it's really cute. It's been around a while, but sometimes we concentrate on the new things for so long, we don't KNOW the old stuff! :D
We stamped on Pink Pirouette (IN COLOR) card stock with Pretty in Pink ink; the stamp is from the LOVE YOU MUCH stamp set. The DSP is the CANDY LANE DSP in the bundle; we used one side on the front of the swing window, and the other side on the back.
We stamped the medallion from LOVE YOU MUCH, and punched out the center with a 1" circle punch. Next, we colored in the heart with a Pretty in Pink Stampin' Write Marker, and matted that onto a 1-1/4" Chocolate Chip circle punch, which matted onto a 1-3/8" Whisper White circle punch. All of that went onto a Pretty in Pink scallop circle punch; we put a dimensional on back, and centered it onto the front panel - the DSP is matted with Chocolate Chip.
For the inside panel, we used the scallop edge punch on the DSP, and colored the stamp from LOVE YOU MUCH with Stampin' Write Markers - Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, and Green Galore. Then we matted that with Chocolate Chip.
Isn't it CUTE??? So. What are YOU stamping?? And I hope you'll take advantage of that great special going on - ORDER NOW, so you don't miss out!!!!!

So, this is a tin I wrapped in a piece of the JACKPOT DSP, and cut a Top Note die - exclusive to Stampin' Up!, you know ;). Then, I cut two Naturally Serif alphabets from Very Vanilla, and created the saying on the front.
The "card" is made with the Curly Label punch, and punched from a different piece of the JACKPOT DSP.
The notebook is covered with yet another piece of the JACKPOT DSP, and when this paper retires, this is going to be a gift set for my dad! I'll put the notebook in the tin, along with a mechanical pencil and a few decks of cards! :) Super-easy, inexpensive, and custom-made for my dad. He'll LOVE it.
Keep on coming back - lots to show, so little time to do it in.... :D
BETTER YET, order some toys to play with, and show me what YOU are stamping!!!!!!!!! :D

This is another sample with some new designer series paper, this time!
The stamp is from PUNS FROM THE PAST - and I really LOVE this set. :D The fan is a 3x3" square piece of JACKPOT DSP - it's an awesome set of papers, all focused on games for the most part.
So, I stamped the fan all around, then put the accordian-folded DSP on with dimensionals. Inside, I stamped the sentiment that's on the stamp. Want to guess what it says?
ROFL!!! I SO crack me up! :D
Tomorrow's post will be a 3D project I did with the DSP. I LOVE the project, too!!! :D
SO. What's on your wish list???? You never know when it might end up being some blog candy, ya know..... :D
Now, GO STAMP SOMETHING!!!!

ORDER NOW at 10% off!!!!). I am SO going to miss WONDERFUL WORDS - I can't wait to see what they've got new for me to fall in love with! :)
Colors are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Summer Sun. I chose one of the oranges and embossed it with clear embossing powder, just to give a little more interest to that panel. You can BARELY tell in the scan, but it's there! :)

Good morning! :) Are you enjoying our week of thank-you cards? After today, there's only one more to go!
Again, this is a very neutral card. Although I tend to think of the colors as more masculine - but you can easily change the color scheme and come up with something more girly, too. That's true of ALL the cards I've shown this week, right? Well, maybe not Monday's - that's kind of girly through-and-through. :D
Colors: Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip
Stamp Set: Cute & Curly (bundled with the curly label punch in the current IB&C)
Accessories: Holiday Treasures designer series paper, curly label punch, paper piercing tool and mat from Crafter's Tool Kit, dimensionals.
Another super-easy card, brought to you by - why, ME! :D Now, go stamp smoething, for Pete's sake!!!!!

Isn't it cute? This is from the new preview bundle from Stampin' Up!, called LOVE YOU MUCH. The hearts are all on one stamp, perfectly positioned to punch out with the punch included in the bundle - and the yummy designer series paper is going to be in the new Idea Book & Catalog, too! The only thing not a PREVIEW of the new IB&C (which we'll be able to order from JANUARY 19!!!!) is the white taffeta ribbon.
The box is the perfect size for a little chocolate something.... :D
Have a wonderful weekend! And be sure to come back next week; every day, I'll be posting one of the cards from tomorrow's Quick Card Class. :)
