Scalloped Tag Topper Treat Holder

DSCN4056Hi Everyone! Here's another use for the Scalloped Tag Topper. Punch both ends to make this cute treat holder! Decorated for a St. Patrick's Day kinda feel with the gold foil Hershey's Nuggets.

DSCN4055The gold is carried over on the outside by punching Petitie Petals with the Gold Foil Sheets. And the treat holder stays together by tying Gold Baker's Twine around the tag slits.

So easy breezy to put together! Great party favor to mass produce for any occasion!

Going for the Gold Card - Trend Alert!

GoldtrendHi Everyone! I love my Stampin' UP! job :) Rita came over for a visit. "I'm not crafty" was a statement she made. I thought "kiddo...that's what you think!" And invited her to make a card I had planned for Sue's Stampin' UP! party.

Here she is...showing off her beautiful, hand made card. (with the Celebration Basic Kit 133007 banner and just one element from the Coral add-on kit 133431 in the background) Looks pretty darn good for a non-crafter! That's why I love what I do..showing her (and hopefuly you) that with the right products in hand, we all can create cards and other paper craft creations! and Yes...she is crafty! and proud of her card. Great job, Rita!

DSCN4047TREND Alert...GOLD! as mentionned, we made this card last Sunday at Sue's party. Gold, gold and more gold. Thanks Stampin' UP! for keeping us trendy!

Happy, Happy, Happy - Making your own Camouflage Background

DSCN4052Hi Everyone! Joni and Lori hung around after card class yesterday as we wanted to try to make our own camouflage  background. We used markers and tape masking to get just the "HAPPY" from a variety of stamps.

Above is mine - I used only Gorgeous Grunge stamp to make the background. Gumball Green, Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suade ink.

DSCN4050This is Joni's. Stamp sets of Gorgeous Grunge, Eye-catching Ikat and Simple Stems. Colors of Pear Pizzaz, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Grey. She thought this would make a great 4th of July card too by changing  up the colors.







DSCN4051Lori took a more femine look! Stamp sets of Gorgeous Grunge, Simple Stems , Eye-catching Ikat and an embossed deer head from Very Merry Tags. Ink colors of Sky Slate, Basic Grey, Wisteria Wonder & Melon Mambo.

I think they turned out great, don't you? Thanks ladies for stamping for fun with me...I had a blast!
 You might say I was Happy, Happy, Happy!

February Team Swaps

DSCN4044Hi Everyone! Above are our team swap cards for February. So fun :) We had Sale-a-bration as a theme along with a sketch for inspiration. From left to right:

Lori's card - She used a new embossing folder fave of mine Decortated Dots - a sale-a-bration choice and Petal Power SAB stamp set too. Love the green background as a flower themed base. So PRETTY!

My Card - seen in an eariler post.

Davette's card - Banner Blast stamp set and Banner Punch were used along with Sweet Sorbet Designer paper all in Sale-a-bration. Does this card not just feel like spring?

Rita's - Valentine's card OMG I hope to show you in a quick video the inside of this card...Adornable!

Gotta run this am but will be Going for the Gold in a card for tomorrow.

Happy Crafting!~ Dee

February Sale-a-bration 2014 Card Class

DSCN4034Hi Everyone! Here are my Sale-a-bration Class card samples. I hope you find some designs to inspire you! (Click here to see Sale-a-bration details)

Sale-a-bration tip! - Build your next order around the FREE SAB product you desire. Then check your Stampin' Up! stash and see if you need any of the coordinting stamps, Stampin' Ink Pad, Cardstock, ribbon, punches, etc...

For example, I fell in love with the SAB Designer Paper Sweet Sorbet 133521 and it inspired the card class. I checked my supplies and ordered in the missing coordinating cardstock and such. I'm not giving much details on how to make as I have video tutorials for each planned for next week!

Here are the cards upclose as well as the stamped images inside. Note the Dazzling Detail Glitter Glue sparkle on each!

DSCN4039 DSCN4031It's AWESOME to use the Envelop Liner Framelits Dies to complete the look with the envelopes.

And the Yippe-Skippee card from previous post.
