Northern Flurry

So how much snow have you got from this big storm?!! LOL We have enough here, I must say!! Anyway, today's card uses the ink to embossing folder technique.

I inked the Northern Flurry embossing folder with the retired Not Quite Navy ink on the raised side, then slid my card stock in and pressed the folder onto it. I also inked the edges of the panel.

The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree set, and I tied on some silver 1/4" ribbon along the side, and added a few rhinestones to the snowflakes. This makes a pretty winter card, without actually embossing it.

I have opened an Etsy shop called Stamperpam. I have two listings right now!! lol I plan on adding more card sets in the next few weeks. But I wanted to mention my shop in case anyone missed the video.

My favorite Sale-A-Bration product this week is the Blendabilities. My upline mentioned that she is getting some during this sale, and has got me convinced to do the same!! lol With any $50.00 purchase you can pick one set of Blendabilities for FREE!! They come in a pack of three, a light, medium, and dark of certain Stampin' Up! colors. There are four brand new colors available in the Occasions catalog too!!

Thanks for stopping in for a look today!!

Get Well Wishes

Hello! I have not stamped on patterned paper for so long, and I love the look. So I took a stamp from the Flower Shop set and stamped it onto some In Colors DSP, then punched it out. The stems are from a hostess set called Hello There.

I also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to give the background some clouds in the sky. I wasn't sure what greeting I wanted, so I got out the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and decided on the get well sentiment. I also had to add some pearls to the flower centers to finish them off.

The new Weekly Deals have been posted from Stampin' Up! There are markers, Blendabilities, and my favorite, twine!! You can check them all out by visiting my online store!

Thanks so much for having a look today!!

Stampin' Up!'s January Customer Thank You Card

Hi there! I wanted to share my customers Thank You card for this month! Anyone who shops with me throughout the month of January will receive this card as my Thank You to you! You can shop through my online Stampin' Up! website anytime, and anywhere in the U.S.

This uses one of my favorite color combos, Real Red and Coastal Cabana! I've used 3 different stamp sets on this one, the sentiment uses Four You, feathers use the Four Feathers(which is still available to purchase from the carry over from the Holiday Occasions!) and the heart is from the Peace Love & Cupcakes set.

I added a strip of dsp, and a double layer of Real Red 1/4" Cotton Trim and White Bakers Twine. I added a large rhinestone to the center of the trims, and 3 small ones on the top corner.

That's it from me today, thanks so much for stopping in!!

Heart Balloons

Hello, and Happy Friday!! The card I made today I first saw in an email from Card Maker magazine(i think-lol) Anyway, they used a bunch of different hearts to create balloons, and made it into a Valentine. I think the overall layout was just the cutest, so I set out to create my own.

I've used all the heart punches and framelits that Stampin' Up! carries to make this. There are quite a few different sizes here, and even the the top part is a border punch. All of the papers except for the black vine one are retired. I have a stack of small pieces that my upline Holly has sent me over the years, and thought this was a good opportunity to use some of them.

To make the balloon 'strings' I just laid down the largest Oval framelit at the bottom of each heart and drew a line. Worked well, and is much straighter than my own lines would have been! :)

Don't forget about the new catalogs and specials/joining offer that Stampin' Up! has going on right now! Lots of great deals to be had!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! See you Monday!

Irresistibly Yours

I had a play with the new Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I wanted to use the viney-leaves paper, and decided to sponge over it with black Memento ink. It really shows off the embossed pattern. When finished, I just wiped off the vine image with a rag.

I used two stamp sets on this, the Peace Love & Cupcakes set for the large heart and love sentiment, and another sale-a-bration set You Brighten My Day, for the small heart, which both are stamped with the new chalk ink. A couple of strips of new washi tape to anchor the hearts was all it needed!

This irresistibly yours specialty embossed paper is one of my favorites from the sale-a-bration catalog! Have you picked one yet?!

Thank you for stopping by!...........
