Yesterday I introduced the cover of the new MINI CATALOG & posted a card I had made with the stamp set, HAVE A HOOT.  Today I have another card to show you using the same set.  This card is CASED directly from the new Mini ~ on page 62 ~ you can see part of the page below and I know you can find the card I cased.  This stamp set is BUNDLED with a set of dies that includes the 'window' die that I used to cut the spaces where the owls sit in this card.  What do you think???  Cute idea or too  busy????

So, two things ~ we can NEVER run out of ideas!  And, your catalogs are on the way as my To Do List included getting those new mini's in the mail to you today.  So, if you don't receive yours or if you are new to the Cat/Art Studio let me know ~ I will mail your new mini immediately!

Still Scenes

We have a very short time to take advantage of the stamp sets and creative supplies in the HOLIDAY CATALOG.  I thought I would show you cards I created using (what turned out to be) a favorite stamps set ~ one that I will keep for a long time.  The STILL SCENES BUNDLE is on page 43 in the catty and here is the set and my samples.

Swap card The last card is a swap card and uses a Window Sheet (142314, page 169 A) instead of the Snow Globe Shaker Domes (150442, page 43 H) that I used on all the other cards.  I like the result using both.  However, if you are interested in the Domes, let me know today as I will be placing my last order for the Holiday Catalog and I don't know if the Domes will be carried over.   I really hope you like the cards.  And, I want to thank all of you who sent me beautiful Christmas cards ~ I am so touched by these wonderful cards.  And, again, I apologize for not sending out any cards this Christmas.  I feel terrible but it just didn't happen!  I am trying to catch up with myself!!!!  Call, email or text to be included in my final order.  Hugs, se

Kelly's Cards............you'll love them..........

Kelly came to Stamp Club on Tuesday evening and brought cards she created to show everyone ~ and, they are lovely!  She used the FEELS LIKE FROST SUITE on page 40 in the Holiday Catalog.  The Bundle includes the Frosted Foliage stamp set and the Frosted Frames dies and is perfect for WINTER not just the holidays!

Love this card.  Kelly included the deer from the NATURE'S BEAUTY stamp set (page 63, Holiday Catalog).  She embossed the image on vellum and adhered it under the designer series paper,  FEELS LIKE FROST.  So pretty.  She used this  6" x 6" DSP on all of her cards ~ it projects a wonderful winter feel ~ you can almost feel the snow on your face.  Thanks for sharing, Kelly!

Kelly 5 PS:  All the cards SPARKLE  ~ sorry, my camera didn't pick it up!

Peaceful Boughs

I used the Beautiful Boughs Dies on page 15 in the Holiday Catalog to display the ornaments from the Brightly Gleaming Suite on page 31.

Ornament card

Are you partial to pine cones and beautiful boughs of greenery?  The Peaceful Boughs Bundle is so realistic you can almost smell fresh pine in the air.  And the best part?  You can use it all year!  Below it is paired with the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper on the 'thank you' card proving you can use it ~ no matter what time of year!

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Christmas is officially less than a month away!  Thanksgiving was as late as it could be and it gives all of us less time to prepare for the 25th!  My goodnes ~ my list is long!  It also means it is time to talk about snow ~ the Let It Snow Suite on page 18 through 21 in the Holiday Catalog.  Some of you have already had some snow and, though we don't get it often, I always hope that it will arrive on the next gray day!  This suite features plenty of cute images of snowmen and it includes a perfect snowman punch!  You even get the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies that are perfect for little gifts (and, so easy to make ~ see the video below if you haven't tried one of these little boxes yet).

Christmas Card Class continued...

This card uses the CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SUITE which Stampin' Up! brought out to celebrate the season.  It is a bundle (153944) or a suite (153947) with many beautiful products including Specialty DSP, Roses Dies, Gold Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and two stamp sets (and, a gold bracelet ~ who knew?).  It is a year round set ~ I can see it as a birthday card, thinking of you or a sympathy card.  We embossed the image with Gold Embossing Powder and used BLENDS to add color ~ Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Soft Suede (pine cones) and Poppy Parade (berries).  The envelope is gold embossed.  Download the flyer below to get all the information about this fabulous suite!

Light & Peace

The beautiful stamp set, LIGHT & PEACE, is on page 29 in the Holiday Catalog.  This is one of the cards from Saturday's class featuring the stamp set.  We embossed the angel with gold embossing powder and layered her on gold foil.  The DSP is not current.  I knew I wanted paper that had some gold in it and couldn't find anything current so I went to my 'gold drawer' and found this paper from several years ago.  It is good to hold on to paper you love!  The shapes are cut with the STITCHED NESTED LABELS on page 196 in the annual catalog.

Gift Card Holder/Christmastime is Here Suite

We'll be making this GIFT CARD HOLDER in my Christmas Card Class tomorrow morning at ten.  The card uses the Christmastime is Here Suite of products which are just beautiful!  The Designer Series Paper is particularly beautiful as it is highlighted in gold.  And, I cut the rose design on the front of this card out of the DSP!  I didn't stamp it or color it ~ just cut it out with the die that matches and glued it in place!  Anyway, if you are interested in coming to the class on Saturday morning you have to let me know by NOON TODAY!  After that I won't have time to prepare the projects so let me know ~ cell:  757-641-9354.
