Black Friday?
No, It's Finding Inspiration Friday


Hi Everyone,

I hope you are able to get up and get moving after all that wonderful turkey and stuffing. I know I had my share, but I think I had more of the appetizers. Does that happen to you? You end up not being very hungry after you have grazed for hours.

Anyway, I am staying away from the hustle and bustle of "Black Friday" shopping! I wanted to share a cute project that I was so inspired to create. Last month, I blogged a class I had done which focused on a one-sheet-wonder idea. We used a 6" x 6" sheet of DSP to create 5 projects. You might remember that blog. Here were our projects using one piece of DSP.

One-Sheet-Wonder 6x6 DSP

I really loved this class, so I wanted to do something along the same lines and color story for a note card set. I used the new pizza boxes and then created 3 little cards (3" x 3") with envelopes. This was so fun. I just loved these little gift sets for my friends.



For the sayings, I used the Lots of Love Stamp set and Birthday Blooms Stamp set. These sentiments are the perfect size for 3 x 3 cards. The richness of Tranquil Tide and the Fresh Florals DSP really make these cards elegant. Silver ribbon and the beautiful 3/8" Metallic-Edge ribbon are so pretty. The In-Color felt bows are part of the On-Line Extravaganza sale going on now. 

I did this class for my weekly stamping class. We used the Fresh Florals DSP stack and I had the stampers choose the color they wanted to work with. I then had coordinating accessories and everyone created their own. Here are the finished projects from everyone.

This is a Lemon Lime Twist color that I made up for Jessica.
She was ill and couldn't come to class.
Linda is a newer stamper and she created wonderful cards
like a pro. I especially like the green one.

Here is Bea's Mini Pizza Box. I love the layers of circles
that she used.

These are Bea's cards that she created. I love the first one with
the layers of circles. She also added great details to the inside
of her cards.

Ann choose the Berry Burst color and she created many
stunning cards. The In-Color Itty Bitty bows are great!

Here are 3 more of Ann's projects. I love the one on the left
with the bitty butterfly.

This is Christi's Mini Pizza Box. She used the Powder Pink
Fresh Floral paper.

I think the Fresh Fig is the perfect pairing for the Powder Pink
DSP. These are Christi's 3 cards she made.
Class was so much fun. I really like giving the stampers an opportunity to create their own. It helps build that creativity when stamping at home.

Tis' the Season
Gifts of the Holidays


Hi Everyone,

I have to tell you that I have gotten into the holiday spirit already! I finished a 12 Days of Christmas swap and got all the days into the mail. I wanted to share my favorite projects I made. At a vintage store, I recently found some wood rounds that had twine tied onto them for gift packaging. I decided to create ornaments out of them using the Nature Sings Stamp Set. I used the Be Merry DSP and the Mini Treat Bag thinlits for cute packaging. I love the foil snowflakes in the Holiday Catalog.

These are the supplies I used for this project. The Wink of Stella
in gold was used for the antlers.

Nature Sings is the perfect stamp set for these
ornaments

Here are 2 ornaments. They have the sentiment in a different
place.

I really like the saying at the bottom of the ornament. Nature
Sings is a perfect set for this project.
These small rings have many possibilities. I really liked using the Nature Sings stamp set because of the rustic feel of the wood. The trees would be great with a little Dazzling Diamonds on them once colored in green. I want to continue to make these ornaments for some co-workers. They are super quick to make and everyone will love them. 


Remember that the Online Extravaganza sale continues through the 26th. Many products are discounted. Be sure to check out the sale for great savings.

This is a chance for me to thank you all of visiting my blog, commenting, sharing, and ordering from my online store. Once you place an order, I get an email telling me. I can then email you your loyalty bucks and tracking sheet.

Now is the time to fill out your wish list and get those products you need for holiday crafting. I finished up a fun 12 Days of Christmas swap and I thought I'd share a cute goodies box I made. I used the clear tiny treat boxes to fill with chocolates. I didn't do any stamping. I used the Quilted Christmas DSP stack and the Christmas Around the World DSP for the Nutcrackers and saying. 



I couldn't have left off that cute bow either. I just love the Christmas Quilted 1/4" Ribbon. This is such a value. There are 10 yards and the feel of the ribbon is great! Put these items on that wish list. You can make many of these boxes for your friends and family in a snap.

Merry Cafe
More to Love


Hi Everyone,

Stampin' Up! always does a great job coordinating stamp sets and the framelits and thinlits. Coffee Cafe is a great set with coordinating framelits. Merry Cafe is a wonderful set in the Holiday Catalog that offers all year cheer. 



These are a couple of the samples you can find in the holiday catalog. I love the different sayings for the wrap around the cup. At my class, I decided to use both sets to show how much of a value both sets and framelits are.

Who doesn't love a bit of bling and pink!

This is a great holiday card using Holiday DSP

This is one of my favorite gift card holders. Simply use the
gift bag thinlit and create a thoughtful gift.

Add your personal note for your recipient and help
them have a better day.
Now is the perfect time to use these stamp sets. As the holidays get closer, you can create wonderful holiday cards as well as gift pouches for that special someone.

Design Challenge 
Winner + Stampin' Blends


Hi Everyone,

I recently hosted a Finding Inspiration Friday card challenge and my wonderful friend Christi won with this beautiful blue project. It was really fun to receive entries. Christi won the Embossing Paste suite, so she can enjoy creating wonderful textured projects. On her project, Christi used a template and did use Embossing Paste after she colored it. 


This was the design template that I posted for the contest. I was very excited for this one, because I love Designer Series Paper and I knew my stamping friends would us the papers in a mix and match way.


This fun project was created by my friend, Jessica. She used some of our discontinued products. I love her mermaid.


Monica made this birthday card for her daughter. I love that this project looks like a collage. The fall colors and copper 19 really stands out.

It's fun to put out a challenge to my stamping friends. They say it helps them to use the products they have and helps them in their creativity. I hope you will be motivated to participate in my next design challenge.


Stampin' Blends are here. These 26 wonderful Alcohol Markers come in Stampin' Up's wonderful colors. Now, Stampin' Blends are available to customers. I have a wonderful way for customers to get the complete set of Blends with rewards.


Join the Color Me Happy Stampin’ Blend Club and in 4 months, you will have all of the Stampin’ Blend markers as well as getting hostess benefits all for $120.00.

Here’s how it Works:

  • ·        The cost of the club is $30.00 each month for 4 months (cash, check, or credit card, PayPal)
  • ·        You will receive 6 Stampin’ Blends each month (3 color pairs)
  • ·        You will be a hostess and earn $15.00 in hostess dollars in 1 of the 4 months
  • ·        In the first month of the club, all members will receive the Ivory, Bronze, and Color Lifter markers along with their 6 Stampin’ Blends
  • ·        Once 4 months is over, you will have the complete set of Stampin’ Blends, 2 Sale-A-Bration items, and $15.00 in Hostess dollars


How can you say No?

Purchase the complete set on your own for $145.00 after shipping and tax and don’t get any hostess benefits.

Join my Color Me Happy Stampin’ Blends Club and get your complete set for $120.00 (in 4 installments of $30.00) and hostess benefits one time. Wow what a win/win!

*There is one more bonus for joining the club. During January and February, Sale-A-Bration will be going on and members will also get a free Sale-A-Bration item during these 2 months.

Giving Thanks
Blogging Friends Blog Hop


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to another wonderful Blogging Friends Blog Hop. We are demonstrators from all over and want to make this blog hop all about Giving Thanks. We are thankful for another demonstrator joining us this month. Welcome to Nikki. Be sure to share our blogs and spread the fun of stamping.


For this project, I used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and the Painted Autumn Stamp set. I really like the font of this set. My base is Soft Suede and I can't get enough of the Copper Ribbon Trim. If you don't have the Layering Oval Framelits, be sure to put these on your Christmas list. They are fantastic. 


If it wasn't for the Painted Autumn DSP, I would never have put Soft Sky with these fall colors. The vintage leaves stamp so beautifully. They have so much detail to them. It's great to have the coordinating Leaflet Framelits. It makes card making a snap.

Wink of Stella adds that WOW factor to your project. 
I hope you enjoyed my projects for today's blog hop. I am always thankful for the beautiful days and the changing leaves this time of year. Well it's time to hop along to see what    is thankful for. Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment. I love to chat about stamping.
