One last Motorcycle

I know you are probably sick of this motorcycle but I seriously think it was my favorite stamp in the Summer Mini. I love the single stamps and at a price of $8.95 for a high quality stamp I don't know how anyone could pass it up! TODAY is the absolute last day to order this stamp or anything else from the Summer Mini. I have one more order going in tonight and will hold it till 10 p.m. so call or email if you need anything.

Tomorrow the Holiday Mini goes live and it has all sorts of wonderful things to stamp with in it. Imagine, new embossing folders, Silver Glass Glitter, beautiful Designer Series Paper and matching fabric. Yes, you heard that correctly matching FABRIC !!! Stop back tomorrow to see what projects I have come up with and to hear about an absolutely wonderful special for anyone who wants to sign up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, it's such a great special it makes me wish I could sign up again.

Last Call for the Summer Mini

It is last call for the Summer Mini, don't let a stamp set slip away and then be mad at yourself later on when you decide you really needed that set! Here is one more card using the Motorcycle Stamp, $8.95. I have an order going in tomorrow if you would like to try and save a little on S&H. Just call or email.

For this card I used Cherry Cobbler for the base and a piece of Basic Gray which I ran thru the Big Shot using the Texturz Plates on page 215. Don't forget to use the Impressions Pad and the Silicone Rubber to make the detail of these plates really come thru.

The motorcycle image is colored in with the Cherry Cobbler Marker and then covered in Crystal Effects. Looks like a real high gloss paint job in person.

Summer Mini coming to an end

The Summer Mini is coming to an end and I just had to post one more card using a set from the mini. Watercolor Trio is a beautiful set and perfect for the technique Emboss Resist, I am placing an order Saturday morning so if there is something you need just email or call and I will be glad to put in your order. If you don't have a Summer Mini handy just click on the link on the right hand side of this blog.

The colors of this card are Marina Mist and Pear Pizzaz. The background paper is from the
In Colors DSP pack, such a fun pack of papers. I also used Marina Mist Satin Ribbon with a little stripe of the same DSP on top. Stamped the image in Versamark and embossed with SU! Clear Embossing Powder. Sponged Marina Mist ink on top and the image just pops thru.

Enjoy your day, it is beautiful outside and a perfect day to stamp with the windows open.

Got Treats?

As soon as I saw the stamp set Got Treats, I knew that would be a set I had to have in my hot little hands as soon as possible. While pondering what to do at Stampin' at the Bookstore next Tuesday I came up with this adorable mini milk carton box. I used the Big Shot and the Mini Milk Carton Die and Tangerine Tango card stock. The boxes are a snap to put together and fun to decorate. The Got Treats Stamp set gives you at least 6 different options to decorate the Mini Milk Carton Box as well as making cards and scrapbook pages. Come back tomorrow for a special offer on the Got Treats Stamp set and the Mini Milk Carton Die for the Big Shot.

sneak peek

I made a card today to send to someone who is going to be missing their tonsils by this afternoon. Such an easy operation as a kid, not so easy as a college student.

I used the new In Colors, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait and the stamp set Printed Petals. Look closely and you will see a sneak peek from the Holiday Mini. Leave me a comment and tell me what you spot and you could win some of these for yourself ! I will randomly pick the winner on Monday.

Don't forget that in the month of August if you host a workshop of $350 or more you will earn another $25 in free Hostess Merchandise. That is $60 dollars in free merchandise that you pick from the catalog, not some items, but any items in any of the current catalogs!

Also don't forget that the Summer Mini is only current till the end of August. Don't let the end of the month come and the Summer Mini go and you are left high and dry ! Contact me today.

More Hillbilly stuff

The family reunion is fast approaching and I wanted to come up with a little stampin' treat for the ladies to make. If any of the men want to make one that is fine with me too. I found this adorable box on Lyssa Z's blog way back and it is so easy to make that this was the perfect thing to do at the reunion. I took a 7x9 piece of card stock in Crumb Craft, scored at 2 inches and 3 inches on the short side and 1 and 2 inches on the long side. Crease and cut away excesses, so easy you can figure it out. Stamped with my favorite Woodgrain Background stamp in Soft Suede and assembled with Sticky Strip. I used a 8 inch by 1 inch piece of card stock and punched it with the Dotted Scallop Scallop Ribbon Border to make a piece to hold it shut. Stamped the S'More stamp from Under the Stars in Soft Suede, ran my Aquapainter over the graham cracker part, picked up a little more Soft Suede to color in the chocolate and put a little toasted part on the marshmallow. Layered that on a Scallop Circle punched out of Designer Series Paper and there you have an adorable box. I took the Small Flat Cello Bags and filled them with Golden Grahams, Cocoa Puffs and mini marshmallows tied the top with some hemp and it is so cute in person I can hardly stand it.

Last Month for the Summer Mini

Summer is flying by and so is the opportunity to buy from the Summer Mini. The first time I saw the Motorcycle stamp in the mini I knew I needed this stamp for my masculine card making needs . So what do I make with it? A pink, glittery motorcycle. If I do say so myself it is very cute and very sparkly in person. I stamped the motorcycle in Staz On black and colored in parts with the Pretty in Pink marker. Next I went over the pink parts with my Two Way Glue Pen and used Dazzling Diamonds. Presto, a very sparkly motorcycle, I also used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder on Whisper White. For $7.95 these embossing folders sure make a huge impact on the look of a card. Don't let this month pass you by without getting your motorcycle !

Look what I got

Today starts the pre order period for demonstrators to order from the Holiday Mini. We got our copy about a week ago and I have been drooling over it since then. I wish we could just order pages it would make things so much easier. There is one thing in the mini that I can not wait to get my hands on and that is FABRIC. Yep, fabric that matches new Designer Series Paper and buttons and seam binding in the Holiday Mini. If you want to take a peek at the new Holiday Mini come on over.

Also in the mail last week I got a huge perk from being a SU! demo. I cashed in the last of my Great Rewards points for the year and got a ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR VISA card. Guess what I will be using to buy goodies from the Holiday Mini ? You guessed it, now the question is will I spend enough to take advantage of the fantastic Hostess Promotion going on right now. Have an order total $350 or more and get an additional $25 in Hostess Merchandise. That comes to $65 in Hostess Merchandise plus a Level One or a Level Two Hostess Set. Very generous. My available times are going quickly so call or email today so you can have a workshop and get in on this incredible offer. As always you can be your own party and reap all of the Hostess Benefits.
