Joyful Christmas - Wall Decor - Year-End Clearance

This is last year's card that I slipped into a frame.  This stamp set (Joyful Christmas) and is now available for the amazingly low price o4 $12.59 (while supplies last)

Take your favourite card and use an appropriate sized frame for a beautiful piece of home decor!

Now wishing I had more of these frames!  This particular frame was from Signature Homestyles but they do not seem to carry them anymore.  They had two panels of glass with a spacer in between so your artwork/photo could have 3D elements on them, like the centre of my flower.

Here is the card.

This is what you get for $12.59 - check out the Year-End Closeout tab for tons of fabulous deals.

Visit my Stampin' Up! store to view and order products that will help you create your own frameable wall decor.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grinch Punch Art and 2014 On-Line Extravaganza

I followed a video tutorial by Elaine Jackson of the UK for this sweet punch art Grinch for today's card!   I used really old pattern paper for the background.  It came from one of those square pattern packs from way back.  The sentiment is from this month's My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I messed up the stamping so restamped on a scrap piece and punched out with the ticket duo punch and re-aligned it.  It was the second piece of paper I ruined so decided to work with it and get 'er done!

It's DAY 2 of the On-Line Extravaganza sales event!  The 1st day Door Buster specials are no longer available at the sale price but are available at regular prices.  NOTE:  although the embossing folders from this 1st day have reverted to regular price, there are THREE embossing folders on the WEEKLY DEALS page.   The Alphabet Press, Argyle and Fancy Fan embossing folders are available at 25% off (get them for $7.46@)

Perfect Blend - Stampin' Up!

With so many coffee lovers out there, Perfect Blend really is the perfect set to make sweet cards for the coffee lovers in your life.  The paper used on the background of the first card is Lullaby from the new 2014/2015 catalogue.

Paper is from the now retired Fresh Prints.  I stamped the cup (or parts of the cup) image three times; cut out the relevant pieces and glued them together to make a fun image.

Sale-a-bration paper was used for the last two - Sweet Sorbet.  The so easy to use Candy Dots were used on the final card.  The cards were inspired by a sweet card by Rita Wright - a Stampin' Up! demo!

I ended making about 25 of these cards with the various papers.

The set comes with 3 stamps; the coffee cup and two sentiments.  I've included the price for clear mount.  It is also available in wood and in a brush image for digital scrapbooking, which can be used with My Digital Studio or other digital programs.

Perfect Blend Clear Stamp Set131392
If there's a special place in your heart for coffee then this clear mount set is going to perk you up a latte. Pick up a cup and send this fun quirky message to a friend. Set Quantity: 3. First appeared in 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.

Stop on by my Stampin' Up! store to purchase your favourites!

Honeycomb Embossing Folder - Stamping with Embossing Folders

A few weeks ago, Splitcoaststampers introduced a tutorial on how to stamp with embossing folders. They used this honeycomb folder and similar colours.  I didn't have water-colour paper so I used Shimmery White card stock instead and it worked just fine.  I love the subtle sparkle in that paper.  In this first card I used the Hello stamp from Lacy & Lovely (now retired).  I used some very old white with silver crochet cotton and coloured it with the new Blendabilities to co-ordinate with my card stock.

This was the first card I made and used Stampin' Up!'s white twine which I coloured.  The Rhinestones are also tinted with the new Blendabilities!  Sentiment is from Really Good Greetings.

Sentiment for this third card is from Walk in the Wild.

Card stock and ink colours:
Coastal Cabana
Pear Pizzaz

So I now have a new way to look at embossing folders! 

Thanks for stopping by!
