Hummingbird pulled up

My YOU MOVE ME CLASS on July 26 is FREE!  You might wonder why I would offer a free class to those of you interested in this bundle.  When you add the shipping and tax to the bundle the total investment to make these cards is $58.  And, it took me a while to work out the 'how to' details so I want to pass that experience on so that you can have all of the fun without the 'learning time' it took me.  EMAIL ME if you are interested ~ sign up by July 19 and pay just $53 ~ get FREE SHIPPING!

Marie's card & Embossing Paste Video

Marie's pig card

This is Marie Shaughnessy's card from our meeting on Saturday afternoon.  Isn't it darling?  She used a new product in the Stampin' Up! catalog, Embossing Paste, to create the texture in the clouds.  She also demonstrated the product showing all of us how to use it.  You can find the Paste on page 201 along with a set of Masks and a set of Palette Knives that you use with the paste.  Thanks Marie ~ super demonstration!

 Take a look at the 'how to' video Stampin' Up! created.

Busy Team Meeting yesterday afternoon............

My friends and team members met yesterday afternoon for our monthly meeting.  We welcomed a brand new demonstrator, Janice Forker, who actually signed up after the meeting ~ welcome, Janice.  Our swap for the meeting was a WILD CARD SWAP which meant we could use any stamp set and any technique that we wanted to.  I wanted to post the cards today to give you some new ideas for your personal card making on what may be a rainy Sunday (big clouds outside my window).

Marti's card

This is Marti Jones' card and she made it into a gift card holder inside.  She also used Wink of Stella on the design.

Wendy's card w daisy

This is Wendy Osborn's card.  Wendy used the new Daisy Punch and the matching DSP.

Lynn's card

This is Lynn Galewski's card using the stamp set REMARKABLE YOU.  The flower is embossed in gold and is absolutely stunning 'in person'.  My camera just didn't pick up the shine.

Denise's card

This is Denise Caudron's monochromatic card using the new IN COLOR BERRY BURST.

SEM card

This is my card and I used the COLOR THEORY SUITE on page 146 in the new catalog.  I have one more fabulous card that I will post tomorrow.  Marie Shaughnessy created a darling card using the THIS LITTLE PIGGY stamp set and EMBOSSING PASTE.  She was our presenter for our meeting and did a fabulous job!  Thanks Marie!

Mini Dimensionals!!!


An email from my friend, Sally, on Monday afternoon ~

Susan Elise Morton!!!

I got my box of goodies today and pulled out the mini-Dimensionals first thing.  I use them on almost every card.  And I almost always take the full size dimensionals and cut them in half.  

300 regular size dimensional in a pack for $4 (.013 cents each)

600 when you cut them in half (.0066 cents each)

720 mini dimensionals are $4 a pack and (.0055 cents each).

And they are sooooooooo cute!!!  I'm sold.  I'll get a few of the regular sized but I'm switching over to the mini's.  

You can find these new Dimensionals on page 203 in the new catalog ~ #144108, $4.  While you are there check out the ADHESIVES CHART ~ good information!  Thanks for stopping by ~ Susan Elise & the cats
