Stampin' Up! Christmas Cuties - Teepee Christmas cards!

Happy Monday everyone! I'm very happy to see some spring sunshine this morning instead of the cold, wet miserable "southerly" weather we've had hanging around for a week! Although lousy weather is always a good excuse to creative indoors! Just for something different I made some "teepee" cards with the new holiday stamp set "Christmas Cuties" (very aptley named). I love all three images and the sentiments too but I have to say the little angel is my favourite, it's very sweet! Have to add the ladies in my class all really liked this project too, both the stamp set and different card style, it really is a "super easy" card to make even though it looks a little complicated. Enjoy the rest of your day!..........cheers for now, Sue :)

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue - some sample gifts for customers!

Morning everyone! So enjoying the "spring" weather we are having this week after a very long, cold winter! These are a couple of projects I made with the new product from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catty for my customers. The top one is a little gift bag I made with the Gift Bag Punch Board (with a gusset) in Mint Macaron card stock and embellished with some new DSP (Designer Series Paper) and some cute, new, red pom pom trim! I popped some chocolates and a few new embellishement samples in them for fun.

The "xmas pressie" card sample I made unfortunately was hard to photograph, but looks really cool in real life! Matter of fact most of my customers really liked it and a few have ordered the Merry Moments DSP, coloured foil cardstock and the new striped ribbon which comes as a set in red & green, it's lovely ribbon, to make more for this years' Christmas cards!

Hope everyone is having a good day! Thanks for looking.........Sue :)

Happy New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue - Dove of Peace

Hi all! Happy Monday, first day of spring and Happy new Holiday Catalogue! When I first saw this stamp in the new catty it wasn't at the top of my wish list, but is now becoming a favourite! I actually did the god embossed one first (with one of the flourishes from the Everything Eleanor in the background) then for the top card I embossed it with black embossing powder onto Early Espresso cardstock and used an aqua-painter brush dipped in bleach (just normal everyday household bleach) to get this coloured effect. More bleach applied to the lighter areas of course, and less in other places. Was quite impressed how many different types of tones it came out with! Will also be creating these two cards with my classes so we can get going on our xmas projects! ......cheers for now, Sue :)
