Love is in the Air - SUO Challenge #11

Valentine Ewes (Medium)

Our challenge #11 is to make Valentine's Cards.

Here I used the four diferent Stampin' Up punches: scallop circle (for the body), five petal flower (for the head, with two petals removed), the full heart punch and the word window punch (for the legs, punched piece cut in half). I also used the smallest pearls from the Basic Pearls set from Stampin' Up. I'm so thankful those are self adhesive!

I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you make some Valentine cards that you want to share.

Also, I am having class tonight, January 25, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. and we are making Valentine cards. If you live in the area and wish to join us, just send me a note or give me a call.

SUOnly Challenge #10 - Baby cards

I'm glad things have settled down in our lives. Glad to be back to posting fun new ideas to share with you. This year I am going to focus a lot more on all the wonderful things we can do with the My Digital Studio software from Stampin' Up. I am loving it! Not only do I love the software, but I love the fact I can order new things to go with it in the middle of the night and have them just moments later. Instant gratifica tion :)

The challenge for SUOnly group is to make a baby card.

Baby card

I used the "All in the Family" digital stamp set. I took the baby body and the head and put them together. Then, I enlarged that image and saved it as a jpg file. I printed that image out as a wallet size photo onto Whisper White cardstock.

I colored the image and then cut it out very closely, leaving a very small white border.

I cut out the Duo Square die (larger of the two) with Whisper White. I then cut a slightly smaller square to go inside of it and ran that piece through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.

The words are from the wood mounted stamp set Short and Sweet and I used Whisper White craft ink to stamp them.

Hope you enjoy it. Now click on over to the challenge page and play along :)


SUOnly Challenge #6 - Clean & Simple Christmas Cards

Welcome to a new challenge. Clean and Simple Christmas Cards.

I have made a lot of cards already this season. This one is one of my favorites. Not just because of the beautiful stamp set, but becaue of the simplicity. I love that this one set has the main image, outside words as well as inside words. I only need one stamp set, three colors of cardstock, one color of ink and two embellishments.

Peace on Earth Christmas Cards #3

Peace on Earth (3)

This card uses both Holiday Mini hostess sets, Peace on Earth and Northern Hearts.

The colors are Marina Mist and Whisper White. I embossed the main "Season's Greetings" image with white embossing powder and a Versamark pad.

Peace on Earth Christmas Cards #2

Peace on Earth (2)

I absolutely love this stamp set and this designer series paper.

The stamp set is Peace on Earth, a level two hostess set. If you want it, you need to earn it soon, as it will retire at the end of December.

The paper is also from the holiday mini catalog and it will be going away at the end of the month. It is called Deck the Halls. You can order it directly from my Stampin' Up website.

The middle element is from the new ribbon border punch. I love the look that punch creates. You can order it from my website, as well.

The colors used on the card are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake (ink on the world) and Very Vanilla.

Peace on Earth Christmas Cards

  Here is a card I made using the beautiful level 2 hostess set, Peace on Earth.

Peace on Earth (1)

The card is made with Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White.

I used the embossing folder, Northern Flurries. I did it in one direction, removed it and turned it around. The one end is slightly less embossed than the other, just because it went through the machine two times, but it still looks very pretty.

Even more tags

I've been working all month of November on items to sell at Angie Meyer's Design Studio here in Kokomo. Here are some more of my Stampin' Up tags that I made as part of my Christmas area.

I absolutely adore these tags.They are so simple to make and only take 5 items.

I used the 2 1/2" circle punch, the snowflake punch, rhinestones, silver tinsel and the Crop a Dile for the top hole. All of these items are available in my online store, click here to go directly to it.

The backs are plain and the silver tinsel has wire in it so you can twist it around the handle of a gift bag.

So cute and so easy to make. Hope you like it :)

These tags were made using the Two Tags Bigz Die for the Sizzix machine and the Holly Jolly rub ons.

On the back are photo splits, so they can easily be applied to a package.

If you need help ordering supplies to make your tags, drop me an email and I'll be glad to help you figure out your order.

These tags are from the new set, "Tags 'til Christmas"

I used Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White on these. The silver cord is retired from Stampin' Up, but I am sure you could find something similar at a local craft store.

Look for more tags later today :)
