Stampin' Up! Daydream Medallions

I know you know this, I know it too..... that Stampin' Up! has great samples in their catalog!!!
Well, it has been a duh moment for me.  I mean after 12 years of been a demonstrator I've just never really copied any of the samples.  Well why the heck not???  I don't know, maybe I like re creating the wheel??!!
So a couple months ago at my clubs we did this card.  I totally CASED it from page 114 of the big catty.  I just switched it up a little.  I changed the colors and I added a jumbo pearl instead of the button.
It turned out really cute and now with our new envelope punch board, you can easy peasy make a envelope.

I pulled out my color coach and it told me to use Wild Wasabi ink #126959, cardstock #108641, also used Pool Party #126982, Early Espresso #126974. Large Pearl Basics #125577 for the midde. 

 Floral Framelits #127012 and Daydream Medallions stamp set #126467 and the hello is from Four You #130538.

This is my favorite time of year in Wisconsin and I have to share these fun pictures.  We did our annual visit to pick apples at our local orchard called The Apple Barn.  Just love it!

Now go spend some time with your family!

Stampin' Up! Kind & Cozy

So when I go to a Stampin' Up! event, I tend to take a ton of pictures of samples that are on display and than I never do anything with them!  So I decided, I will share them here.
These pictures were all taken in Fiji on the display boards, so I don't know the artists.  But PLEASE if you see your work give a shout out!  I figured I'd try to keep the samples in groups. 
So here's a grouping of pictures just using Kind & Cozy.

Here are a few of the supplies used in the above cards: 
Kind & Cozy Stamp set #129123 (w) #129126 (c).  Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape #131269, Gingham Garden DSP #129310

Now go make some of your own cards and if you are lacking any supplies please go to my on-line store at

Stampin' Up! Field Flowers

 I totally CASED this card from Deb Valder.  Its called the masking tape technique but she used painters tape and so did I! 

My base is Whisper White framed out in Baked Brown Sugar #131296.  Inks are from the new In Color Collection Baked Brown Sugar #131174, Crisp Cantaloupe #131176, and Pistachio Pudding #131177.  Are you getting hungry??  Me too!!

Tear off a piece of painters tape for each color.  Gently tap the sticky side down into the ink, remove and lay across your  Whisper White, gently rub the tape and pull off.  Viola!  cool background, this would work with any color combo.

I stamped my flower and words in Black Stazon #101406.

Now go make your own fun "painters tape" background!

Stampin' Up! Blue Ribbon Stamp Set

Have I told you about my amazing friend Natalie?  I know I've shared her creations with you in the past but I gotta tell you.  She's the best friend a girl can have!  She knows my hearts desire is to make my Stampin' Up! business as successful as possible and to earn the fabulous trips for my family. 
She is a truly inspiring person for me and I've recently hired her to be my assistant with my business.
She is awesome!
She made the following card for one of her boys' friends birthday and she was kind enough to share the pictures with me AND even wrote down all the supplies she used!  You ROCK Natalie, thank you!!!!

She used the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge #130517 and the stamp set Blue Ribbon #125981.  The soccer ball is from a retired set, called Just Soccer.  I love how she used the stamp in Gorgeous Grunge to mimic the inside of the envelope.  The paper is the small stack of DSP in the Holiday Mini called Season of Style #132181 and the new framelit envelope die #132172.    I love those stacks and the way you can line the envelopes, its just gives your card a little more class.  I'll for sure be doing those on my Christmas cards.

Below is the inside of the card.  Awesome job Natalie and thanks for being so willing to share!

Colors used were:  Basic Gray # 126981, Real Red #126949, Island Indigo#126986 and Black Stazon #101406

Now go stamp a birthday card of your own!  If you need any supplies please go to my website:

Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board

So have you seen this groovy little tool?  I have not gotten it in my hot little hands yet but trust me I will soon!

 The Envelope Punch Board is Here!

  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It's super easy to use. It looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you'll go crazy (in a good way)!
  • It's small and lightweight;  It's also super portable and easy to store. It's small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalog, so it's here to stay.
 Way cool!  Go to here to order yours today!  All you need is this: Item # 133774, $19.95
