Holiday Catalog - Frosted Medallions

The Holiday Catalog is coming your way! I know, it's like a bazillion degrees outside. Ugh. Stamping with snowflakes is helping me to "think cool".

So one of the benefits of being a SU Demonstrator, is that we get to preorder a month before the product is available to the general public. Which is like, really awesome. :)

I didn't have a lot of time today, but I wanted to get ink on one of the sets I bought. So here is a quick card with the new set called Frosted Medallions. Its got really awesome coordinating ribbon and sequins in soft sky and sweet sugarplum. I adore it!

Easy heat embossing with white embossing powder. Then I went over it with a sponge dauber with some white ink to make it look more frosty. A little bling, and we are good to go! 

Here is the supply list: 

Frosted Medallions Clear-Mount Stamp Set
Whisper White 8-1/2" X 11" Card Stock
Soft Sky 8-1/2" X 11" Card Stock
Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad
Embossing Buddy
White Stampin' Emboss Powder
Fancy Frost Sequins
3/8" (1 Cm) Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack
Rhinestone Basic Jewels Embellishments
Smoky Slate Classic Stampin' Pad

Ordering from the Holiday Catalog starts on September 1st! Make your list! And if you don't have a demonstrator or a catalog, drop me a note and I will send you one.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

In love with Thoughtful Branches

Hello Friends -

Yesterday I mentioned that there is a new exclusive stamp set coming, and I am having such fun using it.

The set is called Thoughtful Branches and it comes with coordinating Framelits that are awesome!
The set will be available August 2 - Aug 31 (or while supplies last)

I started using it last night, and I am having trouble putting it down! I am in LOVE!

Here is another card I made. I have been so inspired by fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators. There are so many creative samples with this set. This card was inspired by the crazy talented Amy O'Neill. You can see her original card here.

This came together quickly! I simply watercolored the background using a paintbrush and some re-inkers in Pool Party and Old Olive Inks. Once it dried, I stamped and die cut the tree and apples. 
I used some of Stampin' Up!s gold thread to make a bow and adhered it to the tree trunk. I love the watercolor background! 

Here is the supply list for this card:

Pool Party 8-1/2" X 11" Card Stock

Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and Framelits!

I just received my preorder, and spent last night inking it up. It is such a great set! The framelits are easy to use (hint: you will want the precision plate to make it easy to remove the detailed images from the framelit). 

Here is the first card I made with this set! I was inspired by my sweet friend Kimberly VanDiepen. She's pretty amazing all around, but she's over the top with stamping! You can check out her card and blog here.  

This card is clean, easy and super cute! I just love the font on the greetings. 

I will be sharing several new projects as we count down to August 2nd, 
the day you can order!

The Open going out to pasture!

With the release of the retired list earlier this week, it's always inevitable that there are going to be some of my most loved, favorites that we have to say goodbye to. This year is no different. 

Two of my most used, and most loved stamps are on their way out. They are The Open Sea and World Map. The Open Sea has been my GO TO set for any masculine card for the past 5 years or so! I used it for birthdays, fathers day,'s a GREAT masculine set. I am going to miss it! 

The other I mentioned, World Map, is an awesome background stamp. Its perfect for travel, vintage, AND masculine cards. 

So tonight, I whipped them both out to ink them up once again.

So the background is World Map, and the rest of the elements on this card are in the Open Sea Stamp Set. I had such fun making this card. See the supply list below. 

If you don't own this set, I would recommend adding it to your collection. It's timeless and really, so versatile. 

I should also mention that retiring products are only while supplies last.
