21 October 2012 – Gingerbread Man!!

It’s been really hot here today but I still managed to get some crafting in.  You can always find time to do the things you love!!

This card uses the Scentsational Season stamp set and the matching Holiday Collection framelits.  I am in love with framelits!! They make cutting out stamps so easy.    I also really love the Festival of Prints DSP pack which is in the Holiday catalogue.  It’s a great way to get lots of different papers to use for christmas cards.

Paper:  Festival of Prints DSP, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade

29 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 3

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have access to a demonstrator only forum which links all demos from around the world, Stampin Connection.  It has a great gallery of images for inspiration.  The first card that I am sharing today is by Melissa Stout, The Stamp Doc.  Check out her website here for a video on how she made this cute card.

This card is using the Festival of Prints DSP from the new Seasonal Catalogue.  This pack gives you 48 sheets of gorgeous papers that are 11.4 cm x 16.5 cm.  I think this is the first time that I have used the pennant part of the Perfect Pennants die!!

Ink:  Early Espresso

Paper:  Festival of Prints DSP, Early Espresso , Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Accessories:  Big Shot, Holiday Collection framelits, Silver Glimmer paper, rhinestones, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Dotted Scallop ribbon border punch, Scallop trim border punch and scallop edge border punch.

This card is from fellow Aussie demo, Ellen Woodbridge.  It uses the Papaya Collage stamp set from the New Catalogue.  You can see what I mean about needing the framelits for banners!!  Never mind, it’s the thought that counts, right?
