Holiday Samplers.. come get it!!

Another sampler from the Holiday Catalog that I duplicated or CASE'd... I'll use that terminology from now on instead... LOL... anyway, below is an ensemble of invitations that are just the tip of the Iceberg on what can be made using this stamp set... it's called Holiday Invitation and is a set of 14 stamps and again.... TOTALLY CLEAR! for you ease of placement.. I am grinning because this is such a pain for a lot of us... getting things completely straight or placed without the aid of other tools... The set has 4 occasions displayed, but you can add to that by simply substituting another occasion if you like... and it has coordinating images... 7 of them to pick from.. the title and the invite part... Additionally, there are the easily made envelopes to go with any size card... See video at the bottom... I'm not kidding...they are soooo easy to make!  Using the Envelope Punch Board!  Available now from the Annual Catalog or shop here 24/7.

Up close and personal...  Added leaves using the Autumn Accents Bigz...Item: 127812 in Annual Catalog and some Tangerine Tango Baker's Twine - item 134578... Love it!!

On this one I added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details - item 125585 on the holly berries to add some Zing!  Easy to use and dries in a few mins... really!  Only $2.50 for each 0.6 fl oz bottle o glitter adhesive...dries clear, so all you see is the colored glitter... Love these!! These glitters also come in Silver Sparkle, New-Gold Glitz and of course... Dazzling Details... clear glitter.
Stay tuned for more samples... coming soon!
Almost forgot the video!!  Hello Sandra... rolling eyes... oh boy!  Here it is from my dining room table... Tah! Dah!  The one and only Envelope Punch Board !!!!  Drum Roll please...

More Step Card Fun... Halloween

I'm sure everyone knows by now that Halloween is my most favorite time of year?  Well, it is and I've already been looking, feeling, smelling, tasting and creating Halloween stuff... Here is a cute Step Card I made last month to get my Mojo going..  I used a mixture of product.. mostly Stampin'Up!(Card Stock, Designer paper, ink, stamps and bauble framlit around sentiment), but also some Cricut, EK Success border punch and bat punch... I love it.

TFL... Sandra.

Holiday Frenzy!!

Holiday you say?  Well, um, Yeah I say!!  LOL... I have begun to prepare for my Holiday Catalog Open House in Sept... date to be announced yet...  But, I was dying to start sharing some samples... so, since the Catalog is not out yet for customers to purchase (September 1st!!)... I have made samples that are exact duplicates of what's in the book plus a few samples of my own... that is why you will see the watermark on some and other's no.

This is by far one of my most favorite Stamp sets from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.. it's called Wondrous Wreath and it is just sooooooooo much fun!!  It has 9 stamps and it's a two step stamp... best of all ... it's completely clear, so you can line those leaves and berries perfectly every single time!

Hope you enjoy... I will add more information in the next couple of day to each picture.

Four Card Ensemble

 My Fall Card
Using the same layout.. see how many you can make in different themes?  Doubled up with another Fall stamp set here.... For All Things.. Another Favorite from the catalog.
 Let it Snow Card
On the softer side... the snowy wreath... using the new framelits!!  Wait 'til you see these!! Make a flip card with a snowflake in the middle and it comes with a heart, banner, Tree, 2 snowflakes and 3 sayings...  In addition, there is the Designer Paper "All is calm" which is gorgeous!!
Wonderful Winter 
On this card, I used the beautiful foiled snowflake paper from the "All is calm DSP pack" and I sprinkled some of the accents from the snowflake, sequins pack available in September also. 
Lots of fun... stay tuned for more!
Thanks, Sandra.

Step Card Fun

I was playing with different types of Cards and decided I'd been wanting to make this one for a loooooooong time... yeah... since last summer's vacation to Hawaii. 

This is a Step card and can be made and modified in many different ways to accommodate many ideas and embellishments.

I've been wanting to use Stampin'Up's new and wonderful Photopolymer statmp set called: Flower Patch... it has 10 flowers, 2stems, 3 different leaves, a leave spine or branch and 3 sentiments to go with it... it's a 2-step stamp set for a total of 19 stamps!!!  All that for only $25.95, aaaaand... of course... it has a matching die set to cut out all those wonderful shapes!!  The Flower Fair Framelits  - 11 dies for $25.95.  I was so excited to use this finally!  If you buy both items... there is a bundle discount of 15% for $43.25.. you know that's what I did right? 

Well, here it is from different views and of course... I had to add my pic o the family!  Hope you enjoy it.  I will post more samples in the next few days.
