Signs of Santa

Here is another card from fellow demo, Tami White.  She posted this card on her blog and it's just super cute!  I absolutely love the new stamp set, Signs of Santa, from the new Holiday Catalogue.  The card also uses the Santa's signpost dies and Santa's Workshop DSP (which just happens to be fuzzy)!  The houses in the background were created using the Hometown Greetings edgelits and the cute little tag is from our Christmas Tags die.  

So how much do you love this card?  A shout out to Tami and Veronica for this super adorable card!

Show me your creations on my Facebook page, or in the comments below.

Alpine Adventure

I saw this card posted on another demonstrator's website (stampwithtami.com) and I had to share it.

I absolutely love how this card uses the new Alpine Adventures stamp set, paired with the I'll Be Home stamp set.  The greenery and bow are from the Pretty Pines thinlitsFestive Farmhouse DSP lends the wood grain panel and the new pearlized doily adds a feminine touch.  

Tami gives credit to Veronica for the design, and so I will do the same.  Veronica, this card is stunning...thanks for sharing.

I would love to see your holiday card creations.  Share them in the comments below, or hop on over to my Facebook page and join in the conversation.

Annual Catalogue CASE: This Little Piggy

Good day Stampers!  I hope you’re all having a great weekend.  It’s Sunday and I’m sitting at swimming lessons for my youngest so I thought I’d sign on and do a quick blog post.

For those of you that follow my Facebook page or Instagram accounts, you’ll have seen this sample there.  I promised to post here with some more details, so here we go.

If you’re new to Stampin’ Up!, you may not have even realized that our catalogues are more than just something to see the stamps, inks, papers and accessories that we offer.  It’s actually an amazing resource to help you find inkspiration to create beautiful cards and gifts.
In fact, there is nothing better than having a creative block, turning the pages and creating something right out of the catalogue.

I recently participated in a swap with other demonstrators and the card below was my contribution.  The swap theme was nothing more than CASE a project from the annual catalogue.  I’ll be posting others over the next few days to show them all off.

My card features the "This Little Piggy" stamp set and the design is found on page 32.  I'm sure some of you are wondering exactly how I duplicated the card.  To learn more about watercoloring, heat embossing or stamping in general, send me an email and I'll be happy to share the technique how-to's with you.

Happy stampin'!

Watercolour Pencil Assortment 2

Good afternoon stampers.  I hope your Monday is off to a great start.

I’ve been super busy creating lately and remembered how much I absolutely LOVE our watercolour pencils.  And if you didn’t notice in the Colour Your Season suite, there is a NEW assortment of watercolour pencils available.  This collection is only available until August 31 or while quantities last.  If you’re not sure what you can do with watercolour pencils, check out these samples!

There are so many amazing things you can do with these watercolour pencils and if you're not sure how to actually use them to duplicate projects like you've seen here, I can show you that too!  
I'd love to hear which of the samples above you like most!
