Love Is In The Air......

It won't be long now......
 
Love Is In The Air....Valentine's Day will be here soon...and what better way to celebrate than with a hot air balloon......
 
And don't forget the glitter hearts!

 
Here's a close up of the balloon....I used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack and for the back of it, Real Red cardstock. 
 
The background was done using the Dots Embossing Folder.

Welcome to another Borderline Buddies Posting
 
It's the final Wednesday of the year...can you believe it? 
 
Where has this year gone?  OMG....I have no idea....but here we are....Christmas has passed...and now we are awaiting another new year.
 
So when Leanna asked what we should do this week....being Christmas is over.....my first thought...is New Year...New Stuff!  right?
 
So let's see what Leanna has to share with us this week:
 
 
 
 
Now, it's my turn.....
 
Today I'm share with you a FREE stamp set you can chose during
Sale-A-Bration which begins on 1/4/17.....
 
 
I used Very Vanilla Cardstock along with the free stamp set Advant Garden which is a beautiful photopolymer stamp set of 10 stamps and stamped with Crumb Cake. 

 
I also used the burlap ribbon...which I cut along the side and then pulled out the strings to make the tie on.....the Happy Birthday Wishes stamp is a part of the same stamp
along with the background splatter.
 
 
I cannot wait for you to see all that Stampin' Up! has to offer this upcoming new year...so many new products and new goodies....you are going to love them all!
 
Thanks for stopping by....wishing you a wonderful day....and hope to see you again really soon.

Snowflakes are falling.....quick and easy

Happy Christmas Eve.....
 
The big day is just 24 hours away...and you are either ready....or not....
 
Seemed like there was so much to do.....and then so little time....
 
Sometimes I wish Christmas was more than just one day...but for my family...it is...
 
I do Christmas Eve dinner for my family....and spend the day with them....and then Christmas Day...is a day of rest for me....as my kids go and visit their other families...and running...I have to say..I don't miss all of that...I loved it when my kids were little....waiting for Santa...being so good (not that they weren't good the rest of the year...but especially this time of the year)...but it's so much fun...having grand children...and seeing how my children have grown...and now on their own...making their own traditions and memories....makes me smile....
 
so...one final quick and simple card...which can be a just because card as well..just changing the sentiment....it's that easy!
 
 
I saved the best for last.....
I stamped the snowflakes from the Tin of Tags stamp set Item # 142180.
 
The ink/cardstock was Marina Mist...
 
After stamping, I used our white gel pen and added dots to the centers of the "y" shapes.
 
Using Dimensionals...added the tag which was already created....mount it onto Whisper White...and Voila....Done!
 
I would like to wish you and your friends and family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah.
 
May you have the blessed holiday!
 
Until next time.....
 
Glimmer Christmas Hugs.....

Quick & Easy...With Love....

Tick Tock...Tick Tock....
 
Time is running out....but there's still time to create something quick & simple...maybe not enough time to be mailed....but a hand delivery is a possibility....don't forget to pack up a dish of your favorite cookies along with the card.....I'm sure they would be greatly appreciated.
 
 
Another quick and simple card using the Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack
 Item # 141991 and added it to the cardstock onto the front....the tag was added using Stampin' Dimensionals.....easy peasy...right?
 
 
I have one more card...which is my favorite to share tomorrow...so be sure to come on back...
 
Have  a SUper Stampin' Day!

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop on by.....
 
Yup...not many days remain until Christmas....I'm here to share with you another quick and simple card...using a tag from the Tin of Tags Kit Item # 142011
 
Let's take a look....
 
 
I used the  Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack
 Item # 141991 and added it to the cardstock onto the front....the tag was added using Stampin' Dimensionals.....easy peasy...right?
 
The DSP does all the work....makes card creating so easy.

Borderline Buddies....quick and easy card....

 
Hello and welcome to another Borderline Buddies....
 
Leanna and I are still focusing on Christmas.....
 
Let's see what Leanna has to share this week....
 
 
We are on the final stretch.....Christmas...are you ready?  There are only four more days...so if you are stretched for time but still want to get a few holiday cards ready to send out (heck there is always Russian Christmas, right?).....or how about a Happy New Year! 
 
Nonetheless....let me show you how using the Tin of Tags (a class I offered a few weeks ago)...can help you out....
 
Now we created the tags...so that work is done...just need to put them onto some quick and simple cards....right?  It's that easy...really, it is!  Our Designer Series Paper to the rescue!  lol
 
Here's a few that took only minutes....which is just about what we have left....well, almost!
 
 
 
So the tag was completed at my class...and all I did was dig into my scrap pile...we all have those, right?  I also ran the piece of DSP from the Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack
 Item # 141991 and ran it through the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions
Embossing Folder Item # 143537 and added it to the cardstock onto the front....the tag was added using Stampin' Dimensionals.....easy peasy...right?
 
Hope you enjoyed this quick and simple card...I have a few more to share so be sure to come back tomorrow...and the next....and the final day which is my favorite card in all.
 
Hope you have a SUper Stampin' Day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!

Today is the final day to win the tablet.....

It's Saturday....the official weekend....
 
It's actually an extended weekend for me...as I have Monday off from work (my full time job that is).
 
I feel like I'm always working in my stamp room which really doesn't feel like work at all....it's so much fun....playing with product...new, old...it doesn't matter to me!
 
I have a few more last minute gifts to purchase...and this weekend....cookies to bake.
 
I decided I wasn't going to make a ton of cookies this year....but some family favorites....
 
So between shopping, baking, cleaning up and finishing up any last minute details for Christmas...it's going to be a busy weekend.....and I'm SUper excited....
 
Have you checked out my demo website (my online store)....I have been updating my demo site with upcoming Events....and have added a few new ones for the upcoming year....
 
AND...don't forget about Sale-A-Bration....the most favorite time of the year for stampers....where you can get free stuff with each $50 purchase.....and...if you decide to join the SU Family, you can get $125 of product of your choice for only $99 PLUS...an additional two stamp sets of your choice!  Where do I sign?  Oh yeah....I'm already signed.....now is the time to consider joining...whether for yourself....help paying off the holiday bills....or decide after signing where you want to go with your business.  I myself was signing up just for the discount and save myself some $$...but here I still am...16 years later.....who would have thunk?
 
Okay...back to stamping....just had to share the opportunity with you....
 
 
And one final card using these fun products (seems like I have a lot of them...lol)
 
 
Okay...well that's all folks...well for now anyhow...
 
Back to holiday projects.....shopping .... and baking!
 
Hope you have a SUper Stampin' Day!

Borderline Buddies - It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas

 
Time for another Borderline Buddies....and our focus on Christmas.
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in North Eastern Pennsylvania...how about where you live?  We have some snow on the ground...the temps are falling...quickly....and the smell of cookies in the air....yum.....how about you?  What is happening in your busy life? 
 
Is you shopping done?  Do you bake traditional cookies?  What do you do for the holidays?  Please feel free to share in the comments below....Now....
 
 Let's take a look at what Leanna has to share this week. 
 
 
 
Now...my turn.....I was a bit late (well late for me)...this week....as I usually have my blog posts done by now...It's Tuesday evening)....I'm watching Netflix...some movie with Kevin James....which is pretty good....but silly...and I'm losing my attention to what I have to do...so...without any further waiting....here's what I stamped and created for you this week.
 
New product which I just unboxed tonight....and some that I got from the beginning of the Holiday Catalog....a little this...and a little that....
 
 
I hope you like it....It's a bit of:
 
Merry Tags Framelits Dies Item #141835
Christmas Pines Stamp Set & Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies Item # 143496
Pine Bough Testured Impressions Folder #141831
 
A bit of Garden Green CS, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Copper Foil Paper

Beautiful You

Beautiful You

I thought I would take a step back from all the Christmas cards and holiday rush-rush....and take a moment to stamp a card using new product from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.

This actually is the card I made for the group I am involved with, Stampin' Survivors.

I had wanted this stamp set from the moment I saw it during On Stage in New Jersey....and couldn't wait to ink it up, but when I sat down (feeling rushed), my mind was blank....so....I took out my catalog.....oh...sorry....you haven't seen it yet...right?  Well, the only way you could is if you decide to join the Stampin' Up! Family (just had to mention it)....


The background of the card is our Designer Series Paper, Succulent Garden...another new item from the Occasions Catalog.  You are going to love this paper too!


I decided to stamp using Basic Gray....instead of our Basic Black....makes a less harsh look....and the "coloring" is using our Watermelon Wonder ink...which coordinates with the paper.  The colored part is actually a stamp as well. 


And...everything needs a bit of bling...right?

Hope you enjoyed this preview of what's to come...

If you just cannot wait...you can a) decide to join the family or b) attend my New Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Kick Off event planned for Friday, 12/30/16....you have three choices to attend....10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.    Come and see new product, stamp a project, enjoy some refreshments...and place a preorder if you would like...along with being entered in a prize package.

I hope you decide to join me....would be fun...and you'll get a first hand look at new product!

Have a SUper Stampin' Day!

Glimmer Hugs!

A Fun Folded Card...

OMG....Where Have I Been?
 
Okay...I know...I've been MIA...Missing in Action...but I've been so busy....
 
It's that time of the year...right?  I know...no excuses.....but....it is what it is.
 
I've not had much time to even get into my stampin' room....between the cookie exchange...Meet Up Group.....snowman makin'.....Heck..I've been busy!
 
So, let me share with you some projects made by other stampers....
 
As many of you know, I've been a part of Stampin' Survivor....so, unfortunately I was voted off this week..but I've been enjoying the cards of the other members that have been getting voted off...this being one of them....and what fun this card is....It's a 3D card....
but folds to fit right into a standard envelope.  
The DSP paper used was This Christmas Specialty DSP..item # 141628 in the annual catalog.
 
 
The stamp set used is Christmas Pines along with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.
They are in the Holiday Catalog...and currently on special....so grab them before they are gone!

 
The Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was also used on this fun card.

 
Here's an overhead view of the card....so different....and so fun....
 
Hope you enjoyed it....
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!

Baby Bear.....and Borderline Buddies.....

 
Welcome to another week of Borderline Buddies...
 
I hope you are doing well.....it's a busy time now just before the upcoming holidays....
 
In my home, the Christmas decorations are up...the tree is all decorated....some cookies have been baked (for my annual cookie exchange)...and we even had a bit of snow this morning....sounds like more coming tomorrow....so...it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
 
So...that being said...Leanna and I have decided to focus the entire month of December on Christmas....anything Christmas...I hope you have gotten your holidays cards at least in the planning stage....or some even sent out...I'm still working on mine!  :-)
 
Let's see what Leanna has to share this week
 
 
Now...if you are still looking for some ideas....here are a few I've been working on.
 
I purchased the Baby Bear last month when SU was having a 25% off sale...heck...even I love a bargain....25% off...plus my 25% discount....wowsie...what a great time to be a demo, right?
 
So...I figured I would give it a play.....and I figured Baby Bear can be so much more...not just for babies......and here's what I came up with...
 
 
Isn't he just the cutest?

 
The bear stamp set comes with three stamps to make the bear, but I used only two....and using the Crumb Cake cardstock...it came out really nice.....

 
I think this would be a great addition to your collection...don't you think?
 
Hope you enjoyed our shares this week...
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!

On Stage Christmas Shares....

Hello and Happy December 1st....
 
Can you believe it...it's December already....not much time now..... :-)
 
I thought I would share some pictures I took of the boards from On Stage....what other demonstrators have created...
 
I love the coloring and shading on this jolly old man....
 
 
And here's Santa....and his reindeer crew....including Rudolph....I think this has got to be one of my favorite stamp sets, Cookie Cutter Christmas....It's so much fun...and I'm looking forward to continuing to use the bear in the stamp set along with the eskimo after the holidays are over.

 
I love this card....simple but fun...using the Scribbles thinlits....a wreath was created. 

 
Hope you enjoyed them.....
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!

Carousels and Hot Air Balloons!

I thought today I would share something new that is coming soon.....
and if you were a demonstrator like me, you could be ordering these products as of 12/1/16...but unfortunately, you'll have to wait...and I'll have to continue to tease you....or...you can decide to join the Stampin' Up! Family....and order for yourself....
 
But....in the meantime.....
 
Here's a fun new birthday set....called Carousel Birthday.   These cupcakes are so fun...and what better than a cupcake carousel!
 
 
This is going to be a new bundle you will be able to purchase on 1/4/17....Lift Me Up Bundle.
 
or you may chose to purchase just the stamp set, Lift Me Up or just the Thinlits, Up & Away...
 
Anyhow you look at it, it's so fun and you'll want to add it to your collection!

 
This box uses the Carousel Birthday...and what fun to have a party focused around the Carousel....and have this as a fun party favor...filled up popcorn of course!

 
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek.....it's going to be a fun time in January...when the Occasions Catalog is released....and I know you will love it!....as much as I do!
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
