A Hostess Thank You!

Hello Everyone. It's been awhile but I am back with a quick post. I made todays' cards to send out to my most recent hostesses to thank them for hosting a party. They were quick and easy to make. I used the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper, the top note die and I also used the cute little In Color Dahlias. This was my first time using the Dahlias. I think they add a nice touch of texture and dimension! I adhered them using glue dots.

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Wacky Wishes
Ink: Raspberry Ripple or Cajun Craze
Card Stock: Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Naturals White, Orchard Harvest dsp
Accessories: Linen Thread, In Color Dahlias

An MDS Case

It's been awhile since I've put my, My Digital Studio to good use - but here is my latest effort, which is a complete case (LOL). I cased this layout from Heather Summers who cased it from Holly Van Dyne. Pretty cute, right? I really like this layout.  I used a picture from  a fun day in September. We traveled to DC to celebrate my sister in-law's 40th birthday aboard the Odyssey. We cruised around the river, eating delicious foods, while hearing facts about several historical sights. Oh, and we danced a bit too! Loads of fun!

A Sympathy Card

I have many cards but Sympathy cards are ones that I don't have on hand. I have tons of thank you cards and birthday cards but Sympathy cards...not so much! I made this card for a neighbor of mine who recently lost her brother to cancer. This was a super easy card to make. It uses one of my favorite punches, the retired lace border punch. All other products used to create this card are current Stampin' Up! merchandise.

From 1 November through 16 December, when you join the Stampin' Up! family as a demonstrator, you will get a FREE collection of Classic Stampin' Pads for $49.95. This is a great value! Joining is only $99! This includes $125 of Stampin' Up! product of your choice and $65 in business supplies.   
Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator affords you so many benefits:
  • A 20% product discount!
  • A subscription to Stampin' Up!'s exclusive demonstrator magazine!
  • Eligibility to attend Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator-only events!
  • Access to Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator community, where you can interact with
    thousands of demonstrators around the world and find tens of thousands of
    project ideas!
  • A pre-order period to get your product 1-month in advance at a discount. I received my brand new Stampin' Trimmer 3 weeks ago during a special demonstrator order period and it is now available to the public.
  • An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements. 
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch. 
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 12" cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.
  • Product details: item 126889; $29.95
  • This trimmer is just so awesome and I love it! It cuts like butter and is absolutely amazing AND you can get yours NOW!

Scensational Season

Scentsational Season Stamp set
Happy Sunday..... We have soccer today. We are hoping for a win! The boys have been playing so hard and have had very few wins. It would be great for them to walk away from this one with the high score. Positive thinking!!!

Another quick make n' take card from Ann's Christmas Card Paper Party. A mouthful, I know. I have been calling my workshops...Paper Parties. Sounds more fun...right? The last few have been Christmas themed. At Ann's Paper Party we made this card and the one from yesterday's post. For this card I used the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. Have you seen this pack? Do you have it? It have some beautiful patterns. I have been using the different prints for many of my card classes. They are the perfect size. The can be cut down to an A2 sized card or used partially on a 6 X 6 card or project. You will love all of the choices.

Open Sleigh

This card was one of my make n' takes from Ann's Christmas Card Paper Party. I used the same layout from a previous Paper Party make n' take,  but changed the color combo and the stamp. It's simple but pretty. I love the contrast of the Cherry Cobbler with the Whisper White card stock. This stocking is an adorable stamp. I just love this entire stamp set. I think it is one I will keep forever. It has lots of potential for cards and scrapbook pages. I can definitely see it in my future. Look for more projects using this one! LOL!

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Open Sleigh (A.C. - 126460, p. 12)
Card stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, p. 172, Crystal Effects, p. 177

A Christmas Ornament Keepsake

I think this is my favorite card so far this year....more to come. This card definitely says "Christmas." It was fun to make (ha-ha - I think I always say that). I love the bright colors. I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and Framelit dies. It's hard to see, but I embossed the ornament with the scented Stampin' Emboss Peppermint Sticks powder. It has a really glossy look to it. This picture doesn't do it justice.

I am home again, full day, from work so I am hoping to get lots of stamping done. I have a Paper Party tomorrow. I have everything ready for it but today I will pack everything to be even more ready for tomorrow. A first for me, definitely!

Card Recipe:
Stamp set: Ornament Keepsakes (holiday mini 128048, p. 3)
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green  (A.C. - p.152-156)
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, and VersaMark (A.C. - p. 152 - 159)
Snow Festival Designer Series Paper (holiday mini 126908, p.10)
