This is a Quick and Easy stamping project you can make using your Stampin’ Up supplies and the widely available plant rocks.


Stampin-up-frig-magnets



I’ve used a variety of images here, but any small image will do.  Simply trace around the rock onto your card, cut out and adhere using Crystal Effects.  Add a magnet on the back.  so easy!


These make great little projects for kids’ parties, wedding favours, and more.



Supplies Used:


Stamps: various – any small stamp will be great, especially line art ones (those that can be coloured in)


Other: Clear plant rocks, crystal effects, glitter, magnet

How I love my Fresh Cuts notes!  So clean and simple and quick to jazz up – and at only $20.95 for 15 die cut cards AND envelopes . . . you can't go wrong!

The original concept for this design was shared with me by my lovely team member, Heather Stewart.  I shared this project as one of my presentations at convention because it meets my four criterium for a good class/workshop project:

Stampin-up-cottage-wall-fre 1. shows new products and/or techniques

2. Relatively fool-proof and reasonably quick to do

3. Doesn't use a truckload of tools nor supplies

4. Great design and colour

I loved this one the moment I set eyes on it.  With or without the bird, it's a real winner.

If you haven't tried the Fresh Cuts or the Pendant Notes, you need to give them a go.  Let me know if you'd like me to bring either of these two products to the next class, demonstration or gathering!

Order yours here

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Heard from the Heart $36.95 Clear mount

Colours: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulance, Soft Suede

Other: Cottage Wall DSP, Build a Brad, Five Petal Flower Punch, Large Bird Punch, Soft Suede Ribbon, 1/2 inch hole punch

{Window Dressing + Promotion}

Good morning!

I've been wanting to put this up for a while – this cutie card the famous Bron Heslop sent me a few weeks ago.  Well today's the day! 

Bron made me this sweet card as a little boost when she knew I was a wee bit down.  I have such wonderful, supportive women around me, both on my team and amongst my customers.  This "job" of mine has truly been such an enormous blessing in my life.  I am not even hardly the same woman I was four years ago.

Stampin-up-window-dressing

 

Anyway, on to the project!

Bron has used the oh-so-cute Window Dressing stamp set – a level three hostess set here and coloured it in using blender pens.  The layout is simple and effective.  I like how she's matted the image with two non-symmetrical mats – very cool. 

Bron is thinking outside the square (ha ha) and coming up with something that costs no more nor takes any more time, but adds that little bit more.

And now my special offer for the day:  I know many of you love the Window Dressing set, but bemoan the fact that it takes such high sales to get a free one.  The good news is I have a spare set here!

It's up for grabs!  Simply place an order via phone or email between now and midnight Friday May 14th.  Every $20 spent gets you in the draw to win the Window Dressing set FREE! 

 And as an extra – I will donate 20% of the total sales to the girls' cheerleading fund.  (We have $1200 due in on Friday, so every little bit helps!)

Thanks for all your support!

Thank you to all who came by my stand at the Grand Wedding Show yesterday!  It was lovely to meet you and share in your enthusiasm for celebrating a big event in your lives.


I was thrilled to give a demonstration of three quick and affordable cards and projects for your consideration.  In case you missed it, here is the Easy No Template Triangle Box:


Stampin-up-Baroque-Motifs




All you need here is a rectangle of cardstock or printed paper and a few embellishments for the front (use the same stamps for your invitations and guest book to stretch those dollars further and to give your wedding stationery continuity).  Add a bit of ribbon to tie and you’re done!


Stampin-up-rich-razzleberry




This project works well with cardstock for extra sturdiness, but the printed paper has the double benefit of a splash of colour inside the box.  Love that!

{Baja Medallion}

I posted our usual guest artist spot on Sunday, so today I'll throw in a beautiful card I received last week from my team member in Nelson, Dee Sturgeon.

I LOVE this – beautiful colours, beautiful image, and striking layout.  I really love that Baja Breeze/Kraft colour combo (the same that was in those lovely textured papers last year).

Stampin-up-medallion

 
I liked the idea here of the white card and the coloured insert for writing.  It gives support to the card as the Whisper White is not so sturdy for a card base.

Thanks, Dee, for your love and the beautiful creation!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Medallion $39.95

Colours: Baja Breeze, Kraft

Other: Rhinestone Brads, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Brads

Everyone loves this little bird from the For Everything stamp set in the Summer Mini.  He is a cutie!

This is a simple card, easily replicated by layering some Designer Paper and ribbon.  Here I've used the Pink Flamingo, one that is quite nice when used.  (It looks a bit loud in the catalogue).
