Christmas swap..........

Geri's card is VERY sparkly!  The base card is Old Olive, then a layer of Real Red, then Glimmer Paper.  After she stamped and colored the image she used Wink of Stella to cover the entire image ~ so pretty!  She also used the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots that you can find in the Christmastime is Here Suite.  The stamp set is GOD'S PEACE and you can find it on page 28 in the Holiday Catalog.

TEAM SWAP...........

My team of demonstrators (SOUTHERN STARS) met on Saturday afternoon and the theme of our swap this month was Christmas.  Our project for the month was to make 2020 Calendars so everyone had a busy afternoon!   I know you will love looking at the swap cards celebrating Christmas ~

Another Designer Series Paper to love.............

You can find the WRAPPED IN PLAID SUITE on page 12 - 14 in the Holiday Catalog and, if you love plaid, I guarantee you will love this paper!  The samples in the picture below feature the other products in the suite.  Whether it's the cute bell embellishments, or the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes, or even the Pine Tree Punch (perfect for any time of year).  Christmas is just around the corner and this DSP is too charming to pass up!

Information about the Delicata ink from Stampin' Up!

If you like the Delicata ink that we have been using for several months, and haven't ordered it yet, now is the time (before it is GONE! The Celestial Copper is GONE!).  You can find the product information on page 16 in the Holiday Catty.  I really like it because it provides a beautiful gold color without embossing.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Susan Elise

Sip Sip Hooray!

Sip Sip Hooray 2

I used the same DSP on this card that I used on the two I posted yesterday.  This is the Pretty Peacock cardstock with the copper accents.  This stamp set is perfect for a Happy New Year card or, actually ANY CELEBRATION!  I have a project sheet for this card and I would be happy to email it to you if you are interested.  In the meantime, here are the products that I used ~ click on any of them to go directly to my website to order.

Night of Navy & Copper Foil

Merry Christmas starsI have been working with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I started with a New Year card that I will show you tomorrow and moved to Christmas.  This 12 x 12 paper uses the colors of Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, Very Vanilla and COPPER FOIL. The copper foil accents are on one side of the paper ~ 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 double sided designs.  You can find it on page 32 in the HOLIDAY CATALOG.  Do you like the combination of colors?

Cheers stars

Cup of Christmas


You can find this cute Christmas stamp set, CUP OF CHRISTMAS, on page 34 in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  This bundle is unique because you can use the reverse image too.  What?  Yes, you can have a right handed and/or a left handed cup!  See the video for a little more information.........

Wicked ~ Happy Halloween

I showed this card from my CREEPY HALLOWEEN CLASS in my blog post on October 7.  You might remember that we used the MERCURY GLASS DESIGNER ACETATE (#150441) that you can find on page 33 in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  The 12" x 12" acetate sheets have a mercury glass finish in two different designs.  The WICKED die (page 55 HC) is purrrfect for today!  The video below will show you another way to use the acetate ~ this time with the STITCHED STARS DIES on page 10 in the Holiday Catalog.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
