The Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is here!

Hello Stampers and Happy Labor Day Weekend

I hope you are taking some time off to relax this weekend...although not the best weather wise here in NEPA, but nonetheless.....make lemonade out of lemons...is what I always say.....its a few days off from the busy hectic work week (plus an extra day off for some of us).



It's also another weekend to sit with your favorite drink (maybe a lemonade) and browse through the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  Wowsie...have you seen it yet? 

Not just the outside, but peek inside and you will be inspired to get those creative holiday juices flowing with tons of ideas and great projects to make, including a whole bunch of kits, which by the way, make great gifts for those crafty (or not so crafty) people in your life!

If you haven't received your "hard copy" catalog in the mail from me yet, just click on over to here and view it online...although not the best way to view it, but I don't want you to miss out on it!

 
I promise, you are going to love it!
 
I have updated my Events page on my demonstrator website, so after you have check out the catalog and created your Wish List, be sure to drop on into my demo website and my online store is always open!  24/7....now...what are you waiting for?
 
Have a super stampin' day!

New Holiday Catalog...and Borderline Buddies....it's a great day!

It's Wednesday and you do know what that means....
 
Borderline Buddies Day!
 
Woo Hoo!
 
 
I have been having so much fun doing this for you every Wednesday, and I hope you have been enjoying it. 
 
Leanna told me she soon is going to be switching her website, so as soon as she does so, I'll be forwarding along to you her new address so you don't miss a single post she has....I hope you are checking out her website on days other than Wednesdays....she does a great job with her products and creations....Thanks Leanna...here's her blog address to check out this week's creation:
 
 
Now it was Leanna's challenge week topic...and she chose New Holiday Catalog!
 
I'm super excited about this new catalog which comes out for customers on 8/28/14. YIKES>>>>that's tomorrow!  If you are on my mailing list and have purchased from me currently, you should have received one in the mail,. If not, I have these catalogs at my house,..come to one (or more) of my events and pick one up and let me know what works for you and we can meet up....you are going to love, love, love it!  If you cannot wait, the catalog will be posted on my online store web page....so you'll be able to flip through the screens and zoom in as needed and don't forget to use your smart phones over the images where you will get detailed information on projects in the catalog!  This is a new feature SU added during our Holiday Catalog last year!
 
I chose to use the new photopolymer stamp set, Holiday Home....I'm thinking this is going to be a staple to get me through the upcoming holidays for all kinds of designs.   
 
 
I think this card would also be perfect for someone that just purchased a new home as well. 
This stamp set comes with coordinating framelits, so there is no need to have to cut out the house.  The little pumpkin; however, had a teeny bit of fussy cutting...but it was nothing.

 
I stamped the house on Kraft cardstock and just used our Basic Black marker to color in the areas.
The "rolling hills" were just scraps that I ran in the embossing folders and then lightly sponged with a bit of ink.  A little ribbon....and that was it!

 
Oh. I can never forget dimensionals....so I used them on the house to stand up from the card!
 
Now...go out and make it a
 
Super Stampin' Day!

Another Lovely Tree

After I created yesterday's card, I was put to the challenge of creating a card using my oldest stamp set. While this was not the oldest stamp set I ever purchased, this is one that is still in the catalog and I have....Lovely As A Tree.
 
Here's another card using this great stamp set...and if you do not own it....get right now to my online store and order it!  You won't be sorry!
 
I did a little bit of layering with color both with the actual card and the coloring. 
 
 
 
I stamped the tree with Black Staz On (be sure to pick up the Staz On cleaner when purchasing the Staz On inkpad as this ink will stain your stamp, but I look at my stamps as being well loved!
 
I then used different markers and just did some little circle squiggles...then using my Aqua Painter, I just lightly went over the colors to blend them. 

 
I punched out on the Chocolate Chip cardstock and then put behind that the stamped tree.

 
Again colored the button using Blendabilities Markers as well as the same knotting technique for the twine....
 
If you look back up above, the little tag was stamped using a new stamp set that will soon be a FREE stamp set for upcoming Hostesses.  It is a super stamp that covers all holidays and more! 
I will posting more information on the stamp set when it is released...another perk of being a demonstrator, I earned the stamp set for FREE!  Woo Hoo!
 
Okay..now go out and make it a Super Stampin' Day!
