One of the best things about being at onstage in Salt Lake City is being able to meet people I’ve been in contact with over Facebook and a blog hop. Last night the I CS team met up to swap and go out for dinner and we just had a blast! Love these ladies !
This is Deb Naylor, our fearless leader. She is so organized and enthusiastic and is full of great ideas.
Today the SSINK Team will be doing something fun… making Christmas Cards using Non-Christmas Stamps! Here’s what I came up with:
I guess the Beachy Christmas set is technically a Christmas Stamp Set. But I thought this would work because I added the jar from Jar of Love Set.
This was my first time using this cute set. My club members are pretty excited about this set- living on Maui. Can’t wait to see what they all come up with! When you see this post, I’ll actually be in Salt Lake City!! And On Stage!! Can’t wait. I leave tomorrow (I’m writing this on Nov. 6th) and haven’t made any swaps yet! I’ve still got a few hours. I’d like to do something with this set and Blendabilities. Stay tuned… we’ll see how many I get finished.
Here’s a close up of the Shaker part of the card. So cute!!
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be sure & send some pictures of the Stampin’ Up! Event. You can always visit my Facebook page to see more photos.
I think this month’s page is my favorite! I love the way these watercolors made the pretty background- just a stamp on top…& done! I found the idea for this from Michelle Quinno at shellsq.blogspot.com. Thanks, Michelle!
Watercolored using Aquapainter: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, & Tip Top Taupe
Stamped on top using Early Espresso. Stamp sets are Totally Trees & Endless Thanks.
I have so much to be thankful for! The first thing that comes to mind is how thankful I am for the many dear friends I’ve made through stampin’!
My favorite Suite from the Holiday Catalog is Quilted Christmas! The more I play around with it, the more ideas pop into my head!
This suite includes Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Quilted Christmas DSP, 1/4″ Ribbon and Stitched Felt Embellishments.
Recently I challenged my downline, the Maui Big Shots!, to start using their DBWS and to add an event to their blog. Ramona Corson and Mary Green met the challenge, so this is one of the gifts they’ll receive from me:
I just love the Pizza Boxes!! They’re sturdy and glossy white and simple to assemble. They are the perfect size to hold a set of 3 X 3 cards. And now there are 3 X 3 envelopes available for purchase!
Our house is pretty quiet now that our girls are gone. But we do have Swiffer & Kaboodle! Those two can be pretty entertaining! It’s exactly like Garfield & Odie!! Swiffer is the hyper tag-along little brother & Kaboodle basically taunts him or puts up with him.
We never wanted a cat. My husband didn’t, at least. He’s allergic to cats. But this stray cat insisted on being one of the family! Kaboodle just LOVES Pat! She always wants to sit on him & when he pets her she purrs so loudly and does that thing with her paws where they dig into you because she’s just so, so happy! And did I mention she drools?!! Seriously! The happier she gets…
On to my cat card. I don’t have the set called Pretty Kitty yet, but I do have the Cat Punch!
I used Basics Pack 2 Washi Tape in the background & used Foam Adhesive Strips to pop up the cat (instead of dimensionals) because I needed something skinny. All supplies listed at the bottom of this post. Found the original idea for this card HERE on the Cow Whisperer’s blog. Her’s is black & white & very pretty!
I’m really hoping Stampin’ Up! will not retire this cute punch, but will come up with a new stamp set so that we can use it even more!!
