One of Many......

Sara talks about one of the many CARD KITS that are available from Stampin' Up!  This one is for the guys!  There are ten card kits available.  Some of the kits are non-stamping, just assembly.  Those kits are all $12 and usually make 9 to 12 cards or projects.  The other kits include a stamp set, a block to put the stamps on and an ink spot.  These kits are $19 and there are a variety of styles. 

KITS make crafting easy ~ the boxes include everything that you will need ~ AND directions to make crafting easy and fun!  Let me know if you need more information or if you'd like to stop by and see samples of the kits we have or if you would like me to order a kit or two for you!!!  You can also order in my online store ~ just type in kits for pictures and more videos.    

                                                

 


CUTE Halloween!

You can find all of Stampin' Up!'s CUTE, not scary, Halloween products on page 50 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  This Halloween Treat Box is easy peasy with the Tombstone Treat Boxes (156486) on page 51.  The boxes go together easily ~ the adhesive is on the box so you don't have to worry ~ it will stay together.  And, it is a nice size for some chocolate treats ~ I wrapped HERSHEY'S miniatures with a little of the Cute Halloween DSP.  I put six in my box but you may be able to get more!

Reflected In Nature

Do you remember learning about a stamping technique called 'mirror image' or the 'reflection' technique?  One of the ways that we can do this is by using window sheets.

However, there is a much easier way that Stampin' Up! has included in the current Holiday Catalog on page 60.  REFLECTED IN NATURE does the mirror image effortlessly.

I made this card last night using the BEAUTY OF THE EARTH designer series paper (page 130 in the annual catalog) and my MISTY MOONLIGHT stamp pad ~ love that color!  Actually I made two of these cards and, unfortunately, on the second one I added the image upside down!!!!  You can tell because of the reflecting lines on the lake.  It is a surprise to find an upside down image when you take time to look at what you've done.  So, out came the UN-DU to remove the cardstock, let it day overnight and add it to the base card this morning ~ without having to add more adhesive.  UN-DU is amazing and everyone should have it on their craft table!!!
