A clean and simple card using the new Tea Shoppe stamp set on page 19 from the 2012 Occasions Mini catalogue.  Designer Series Paper is from Attic Boutique page 23.  In Color Pool Party and Neutrals Soft Suede are quite nice together.  I used the taffeta Soft Suede ribbon and a few of the tiny pearls as embellishments.

Mixed Bunch Trio

A simple and quick card done with the Mixed Bunch stamp set and its co-ordinating punch; both in the 2012 Occasions Mini. 

There is a magazine that Stampin' Up! puts out monthly for its demo's called Stampin' Success.  The card was shown as an example to demo during classes.  I modified it only slightly. 

It also uses the fun new Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler and Adorning Accents Edgelits Die.  My sentiment is from Short & Sweet.

Happy Stamping

Simply Sent Great Day!

I'm finally putting these together; I've had them since the fall.  I also finally opened my Turtle & Co. stamp set to use on this card.  He's adorable!  Simple is the right word for this card!  I'm having fun trying to find images to fit the blue scalloped circle in the centre.

The sentiment is from Posy Punch, available as a hostess choice.  I tried to find the set to make another and it is MIA!  I think I gave it away as a prize by mistake as I have a new, unused set!  Ooops!!

Cute little duck from Every Little Bit.  I messed up my sentiment on the bottom when I stamped it, so I used a sticker from an old Simply Scrappin' kit.

Same duck!

This card best resembles the sample on the front of the kit package.  I used a sentiment from Short & Sweet.

Fresh Vintage CASE

If you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, you just might know I didn't design this card!  Sandi McIvor generously provided a PDF for this card.   I love the gold embossed border made with the Fresh Vintage stamp set, which is free with a $60 purchase until March 31st.  Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I made several changing some up a little; some with other sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes and some from another as shown below.

I flipped some of them over on their side and used a different sentiment.  This sentiment set is from Loving Thoughts available in the 2012 Occasions Mini until April 30th.

This sentiment is also from Loving Thoughts.  I wanted to show how I finished off the's a little dark though!

So check out the 2012 Occasions Mini

and the Sale-a-bration Brochure

and then give me a call!!

Thank you Sandi for sharing your card design!

Happy Stamping!

My Friend and Flirtatious Specialty Paper

My card features one of the fabric flowers from the 2012 Sale-a-bration Brochure.  The centre brad is from the Jelly Bean Brads found in the 2012 Occasions Mini page 25.  You can get this fabric FREE (page 10 of Sale-a-bration) with a $60 purchase.

The new Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and Adorning Accents Embossing Folder adds a sweet touch.  They can be found on page 7 of the 2012 Occasions Mini.  My centre is a retired brad with Dazzling Details spread on it.

The Flirtatious Specialty DSP is from the IB&C page 183 and co-ordinates with the fabric.  Sure makes things easy to pull together!  My fabric button is retired.  I posted these in the reverse order of when I made them.  I think I like the first one with the Jelly Bean brad the best.

The sentiment is from the stamp set My Friend; stamped with Whisper White craft ink.  I followed instructions by Jackie Topa from a demonstrator website.

So, there were a lot of products used for this one card!!

Sale-a-bration started on January 24.  Don't forget to check it out and see all the great products they have compiled to give to you FREE!  For each $60 in merchandise you can choose one item.
