Decor Blocks

Here is another is another Christmas decoration I made for my home using the Decor Elements Blocks and the Holiday Mix Decor Elements  found in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. I  used the Merry Moments double sided paper ( from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog ) and Old Olive cardstock to cover the blocks first. To finish the project, I wrapped Old Olive striped ribbon to hold the blocks together. This sits on a bookcase in my reading room.

Today's sample uses the Decor Elements stencils Vintage Ornaments I and Vintage Ornaments II found in the Stampin' Up! Definitly Decorative catalog. I found this frame at a store on a clearance table for $2. I wasn't sure exactly what I would do with it but for 2 bucks, I had to buy it knowing that I would be able to do something. It was perfect for the ornament stencils. I used the Brocade Motifs stamp set to stamp on the mat that came in the frame. It was just to plain. I think it turned out great. I have it hanging in my foyer as decoration for the holidays!

My Digital Studio Card

I am having so much fun with MY DIGITAL STUDIO. I created a card this morning which took me all of 10 min. I used the new BERRY CHRISTMAS digital download to creat this card. I do not have this stamp set. I was so happy that I could purchase it as a download and add it to My Digital Studio stamp sets.

Here is the outside

And here is the inside

Isn't it cute! Did you know that when you order the cards through the Stampin' Up! printer you also receive an envelope with each card? How convienient is that! They are our top quality envelopes we sell in the catalog.

MY DIGITAL STUDIO is the perfect gift to put on your wish list to Santa!

I created another card using My Digital Studio this morning. It took all of 10 minutes maybe. This one I sent to the printer and it's on my order. I can't wait to see it when it comes!

Here is what the inside looks like.

Friday, October 23, 2009

I went to see a play last night at the Fulton Opera House in Lancaster called Dial M for Murder. It was very good. I was mesmerized by the set design. It was monocromatic in grey tones - just beautiful. I could not stop thinking about recreating the wallpaper on a card. Is that a riot! This morning I opened My Digital Studio and went to work. It's close but not exact. I used Friends 24/7 stamp set and changed the opacity of the color from the top to bottom. This is how the wallpaper looked on the set. In real life it is much prettier. I added a verse and brads. It just goes to show you that inspiration comes from everywhere! Look around you for creative inspiration. Here is the card.

Enjoy Your Day!

Great Gift Idea

Looking for a little gift for a teacher or friend or co-worker? The Calendar Kit in the HOLIDAY MINI CATALOG is the perfect choice! This double-sided calendar shows the month on one side and a pattern on the other. When the month is done, you can use the patterned side to embellish a card or scrapbook page! A chipboard easel to hold the calendar comes with the kit. Embellish each month with the coordinating Note To Self stamp set and wrap the calendar in a Magnetic Gift Box ( both found in the Holiday Mini ) for a perfect gift!

I colored the chipboard easel using an ink pad and sponge dauber. You can make the easel any color you want.

I simply embellished the box with a piece of  Old Olive Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and made the tag using the level 2 Christmas Punch Hostess Stamp Set. The tag was tied onto the ribbon with Linen Thread. A simple pretty presentation.

Enjoy Your Day!

My Digital Studio

I am loving working with My Digital Studio! I am realizing that I need to take more pictures. I've never been a big picture taker - you know, just the basic pictures you take for birthday's and Christmas. I'm going to try harder to take more. I'll have practice this weekend when we celebrate 3 birthdays in the family at a gathering at my house!

My Digital Studio ( MDS ) is a versital tool. I've made scrapbook pages, cards, Christmas photo cards, and tags so far. I haven't tackled the calendar yet because I need more photo's! You can make newsletters, stationary, Christmas newsletter's, DVD's, multimedia with music. I enhanced my Facebook profile picture too! It is an amazing papercrafting tool. Here a some samples I've been working on.

Stampin' Up! has a professional printer to print the projects. This gives your projects a professional look and keeps the color's true. If you are like me and like to feel those buttons or brads or 3D images on your project, you can always add those after printing! You can combine digital with the real thing. How cool is that!

My Digital Studio

My Digital Studio is the most amazing paper crafting tool! With this tool you can create gorgeous scrapbook pages and scrapbooks, cards, calendars and more! I've been playing with mine for a few weeks now and can't believe how fun and easy it is to use. You can use the templates that are already created in the program or make your own. There are many stamp sets, embellishments, designer papers, scrappin' kits and more to use to make your projects come to life! I'm telling you, it's amazing! Here are a couple of samples that I have made. The first an 8x8 scrapbook page, the other a card.

This software is well worth the price. During October and November, you can get this awesome tool for 50% off by submitting $400 in orders. You can do that by hosting an in home workshop with me or collecting orders and submitting them to me. In order to receive the special price, I need to submit the order. Email me . Put this on your Christmas lists! I have gift certificates available.

I'm Here!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Life just gets so busy. How's that for an excuse?! Here is a sample I created today for my workshop this Sunday. This will be one of the make n' takes. I used an old favorite, Lovely As A Tree.

Now, what is so great about this card is that the leaves sparkle! I used the Shimmer Paint that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. It adds so much interest to the project! I inked the leaf image in More Mustard Classic Ink and then used a sponge dauber dipped in just a little bit of the Shimmer Paint and dabbed it directly on my inked stamp. Then I stamped it on a piece of Conffeti Cream cardstock. It took my breath away it was so pretty. It's so hard to tell in this picture - you have to trust me.
To complete the card I used Really Rust cardstock for the card base, Taken With Teal for the layer behind the leaves and a piece of Autumn Meadows designer paper which is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I punched one corner using the ticket corner punch and added a More Mustard brad. I hope everyone at the workshop will enjoy making this card!
Here is a closer view. It's still hard to see the shimmer. Trust me, it's gorgeous!
Enjoy Your Day!

Deal of the Week

In this sample I've used the beautiful new Medallion Background Stamp. This is one of the make n' takes at my workshop tonight. I've used a brad from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware kit to embellish the center. If you notice, it has a bit of color on it.

I took the brad and smooshed it in a Chocolate Chip Craft Pad the wiped off the excess. The ink gets in the grooves and adds color. Isn't that cool?!

To make this card I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I took my Stampin' Pastels and a Dauber and colored over the versamarked image. This technique is called poppin' pastels. As you rub the chalk color over the image, it pops out. I used So Saffron for the center and Chocolate Chip for the outside. This is a simple but very effective technique.

Stamp Set - Medallion Background, On Your Birthday
Cardstock - Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Ink - Chocolate Chip Craft pad, Chocolate Chip Classic pad, Versamark pad
Accessories - Vanilla Hodgepodge, Stampin' Pastels, Sponge Daubers, Modern Label punch

Today's sample is a simple card to make and uses once again the Melon Mambo In Color. I gravitate to the color. I just love it! This layout is very simple and easy to do. The black card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Then I cut a piece of Melon Mambo 4 x 5 1/4 and cut that in half on the diagonal. You then have two half pieces to use. The verse used here is from the On Your Birthday stamp set. A piece of the Dotted Melon Mambo ribbon completes this card!

Busy Summer

I am having a busy summer and do not get to post to my blog like I want. Sorry about that. There are lots of things going on and I'm trying to keep up with it all! I love summer and love all the activities that go with it. Don't you?!

Today's sample reminds me of summer. Isn't it adorable? I think so. My new favorite In Color is Melon Mambo and I've paired it here with one of our 48 colors, Tempting Turquoise.

To make the Popsicles, I used three of our punches. Wordwindow Punch - stick, Large Tag Punch - popsicle, Bite out of popsicle - Scallop Circle Punch. I used the White Gel Pen to highlight the bites and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter which is a little hard to see in this picture but it does add a lot. (click on the picture to see it bigger) The greeting is from the On Your Birthday set which inked in Melon Mambo and stamped that on Whisper White and punched it out using the new Modern Label punch. The Melon Mambo Dotted Ribbon finishes it off.

Now I'm off to prepare for my Stamp A Stack next week. This card is going to be one of the cards we'll make!

Enjoy Your Day!
