Creative Combos


Stampin' Up! recently combined two pretty products creatively to come up with the samples above.  The stamp set, BE JOLLY, BY GOLLY (#142134, page 17, Holiday Catalog) and SWIRLY SCRIBBLES THINLITS (#141497, page 194, Annual Catalog).  Clever!  Have you combined/created something different with Stampin' Up! products?  Send me a picture ~ I would love to feature your creation on my blog!!!  Susan Elise

BE JOLLY stamp set

White Christmas

It's snowing in Green Bay this afternoon and the Packers are in a snow storm at Lambeau Field.  Unfortunately, my TV doesn't pick up the football game so I have to check other NFL games periodically to 'catch up'!  But enough of that ~ I know that you didn't check my blog to see how the Packers are doing!!!!  LOL!

Strength & Prayers

This card also fits under the title of the blog post this afternoon.  It is beautiful, elegant, uses two stamp sets and would be lovely to make ~ particularly if you enjoy embossing.  All you need is Silver Embossing Powder and a VersaMark stamp pad.  Be sure and heat the embossing powder until it is shiny.  And, if it has a 'pocked' look, heat it a little longer until it has a very smooth surface.  It will be beautiful!  Here are the directions for you!  Enjoy!
