Yes, I know you're thinking cookies, candies, etc. with the title, but I got this big box of Stampin' Up! goodies from my pre-order of the holiday catalog.  It begins on September 1.  WOW, is all I can say. There are some amazing papers, stamps, embellishments, punches, etc.

Graveyard Gate Bundle

Wow, you should see the beautiful gate in this spooky bundle!  It's gorgeous!  The bundle is called the Graveyard Gate Bundle.  Love it!  You can begin ordering this on September 1 in my store.  Let me know if you'd like a catalog.



Celebrate

I made this for my niece who just passed her Level 2 CFA exam.  There aren't many who pass it on the first try!  I'm so proud of her!!




I used Beautiful You and the Marbled background stamp to make this card.  I started with one of my favorite colors, Bermuda Bay.  I stamped a panel of Whisper White with the Marbled background stamp. Then I stamped the girl with Memento twice.  I used a paper pumpkin stamp to put the dots on the skirt, cut it out and glued it on top of the other image.  I used a blender pen to color the image in and finished off with Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please let me know what you think!

Treat Yourself

Here is a quick watercolor card that I sent to a friend and team member.  I used Stampin' Up! watercolor paper and the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I used the little pods and stacked them.  They're stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then I used an Aqua Painter to wet my paper and then painted with my ink pads.  I used Watermelon Wonder (a retired color), Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is from Falling For You which is retired.  I added some In Color Enamel Dots.




Stampin' Up! Bonus Days are almost over!  Don't miss out.  For any $50 order you place, you will receive a $5 coupon which can be used in August.  This is over July 31st though, so don't wait!  Click on the graphic to shop.  If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber or you want to become one, you can buy a 3, 6 or 12-month subscription and get some bonus coupons!!

Celebrate Dots!

I recently received these cute embossing folders from my incredibly generous upline.  I sat down to try them out.  Four cards later, I finally decided to quit for the night.  I made masculine and feminine versions. I ended up loving the color combinations, especially on the masculine one.  I will use it in the future!  There are a ton of ideas I have for the folders and I will be playing with them again.

I have a couple of tips with the folders.  Keep your paper in the folder while stamping the dots (or whatever shapes you want to use).  It will give you a little stability with the debossed letters.  And press down lightly so that the colors don't get inside the letters.  Oh, and if you get a little bit of ink in the letters, just take a white gel pen and write over it!  It's that easy.

These two little folders can easily make a WOW card and there are so many options. They are only $9 US.  Stampin' Up! has a few card samples in the store.  Go and check them out here:  Celebrations Duo Textured Embossing Folders




Here are my samples.  Please let me know your favorite!  I used the Fiesta Textured Embossing folder in the first.  Colors are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  I added Metallic Enamel Shapes as well. 

In the second one, I used Dapper Denim, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.  Again, I added some Enamel Shapes.

In the third, I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and some Fresh Florals dsp.  I used Flirty Flamingo as a base with a panel of Peekaboo Peach.  Then I tied on some Flirty Flamingo ribbon and Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.













Don't forget....for every $50 you spend in July, you will receive a $5 coupon to use in August.  That's a great deal!  There are no limits to how many you can receive.  Check it out here:

Hello Gorgeous!

Hey Stampers!  I was trying to come up with an easy class card because my other three were more complicated.  I decided to pull out Beautiful You from the Occasions 2017 catalog.  I used some Sending Love dsp, also from the Occasions catalog, and I layered it on top of a Stitched Square and Oval and cut the sentiment banner with the Banner Triple Punch.  I wanted to keep the dress plain until I showed it to my friends.  I gave them the option of stamping it in Memento Black or adding Real Red to the image.  I think most of them stamped the red.  I like it both ways.  What do you think?  If I can find a photo of the image with red, I will update.  I finished it off with some metallic enamel shapes (LOVE them!!).

Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment.  I love reading them!



Here is the filled in version with a different piece of dsp.






By the way, Sale-a-Bration is going to be over soon (sigh).  If you want the chance to pick a FREE item out of this catalog, you'd better hurry!  It ends on March 31.  Occasions will continue through May.

Paper Pumpkin Special

Paper Pumpkin is celebrating its 4th birthday!!  There will be a special celebration kit designed by Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin' Up!  There's a gift inside this bold and sassy kit.  I cannot wait to see it!  Order March 11-April 10 for Sara's kit (see below for ordering info).




What is a Paper Pumpkin, you ask?!!  It is a monthly box of crafting goodies!  You've probably seen or  heard about the orange box that is around $20/month.  You get a clear block the first time you subscribe.  It always has an ink spot or two, embellishments, glue dots, an adorable mini stamp set, and some cut card or project pieces.  I enjoy having everything in one box.  I can take it on the go or do it in front of the t.v., or on my lunch break.

There are two ways to subscribe.  One is on a month-to-month basis.  If you decide to skip an month, you click the box and you will not get a kit that month.  You can cancel at any time.  The second way is a prepaid subscription. This is the best deal, especially during Sale-a-Bration.  The 3-month subscription is usually $59.  If you purchase it before the end of March, you will pay $55 and you will choose a FREE item in the Sale-a-Bration catalog!  Don't wait if you would like to try this out! Even if you are a subscriber, you can skip a month and enter the code for the three month subscription and then your regular subscription will continue at the end of the prepay.  If you have any questions, please let me know. There are thousands of alternative projects on Pinterest using Paper Pumpkin.  Just do a search and you'll see the amazing creations!  You can also follow me on Pinterest.  I have lots of Paper Pumpkin pins (see link on the right side bar).  Click here to see ordering info:
