Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to-and introduce them to Stampin' Up!

Cards from the Demo Meeting

 Here are some of the cards from our April Demo Meeting.  It was so much fun getting together-swapping,  talking, make n takes, talking, oh and did I say food.  We had FUN!  Thanks ladies for the beautiful cards.

Tina's card-she had cut out all those hexagons.  We need a punch I'd say.

Cheryl's card   I made this as an Easter card and today I changed it up for a birthday card.

Simona's Thought's of prayer card.  Love the colors they really make the tree & butterflies pop out.
Sherry's digital studio card.  She used glossy photo paper and it is so beautiful.  I wish you could see the details you can get using "My Digital Studio"

Secret Garden

I don't know about you but I have so many favorite stamp sets it is hard for me to make up my mind.  Today I was looking at my stamps and I decided to play with Secret Garden.  I love the stamps and I really like the framelits that you can get to go with it.   Have you seen it?  It is on pg 17 in the Spring catalog.  And the great part is there is a bundle you can get to save some money.  I'll show you.

Secret Garden stamp set   # 129141  $25.95 (w) or #129144 (c)
Framelits dies  #129372  $24.95
Or the bundle which is both the stamp set and the Framelits
#131100 $42.94 (w)
#131099  $36.95 (c)

There is just so many things to do with this and remember if you want to make something on DSP it turns out pretty also.  Try it and see.  Then send me a picture  of your card and I will add it to my blog for everyone to see.  (remember to send your name and some instructions to share with everyone).  
 Here's my card.

I am getting so excited about the new 2013-14 Idea/Book.  It is going to be spectacular.  Stampin' Up is pulling out all the stops to celebrate there 25th Anniversary.  It seems like there is something going on everyday.

Photopolymer / Bombs Away Birthday stamp artwork.

What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

Stampin' Up punches

The other day we went to our new Hobby Lobby to check it out.  Amazing is all I can say.  There is just an abundance of different things to look at.  I even found the spoons I've been looking for that are in the new Spring Catalog on page 28  on the Sunshine & Sprinkles page.  Don't you just love that spoon?  Anyways,  I met a couple ladies looking at punches and I hear them talking about how hard some of them are to punch.  Well,  I began to talk about our punches and let them know our punches are not hard to punch.  So, I came home and made this card for my swap  for yesterday's make n take.
It is not hard at all.  But to see it, it is beautiful.  I used assorted circle punches (all different sizes) in the New Tea for Two DSP on pg 3 in the Spring Catalog- $10.95  #129311.  I love this paper.  This is how I made it.
1- Very Vanilla c/s   5 1/2 x 8 1/2     #101650  pg 156 idea book  (fold in half)
1- Lucky Limeade c/s 4 1/8 x 5 3/8  #122926 pg 152 idea book
1- Very Vanilla c/s  4 x  5 1/4
Tea for Two DSP for circles
1 3/4" circle punch  # 119850  $16.95
1 3/8" circle punch  #119860  $15.95
1 1/4" circle punch  #119861  $15.95       (I cut assorted out 2 of each and added to them)
1" circle punch  #119868  $12.95    (Remember to put you saying on so you have room at the bottom)
3/4" circle punch  #119873  $12.95
Itty Bitty Banner Framelits   #129267  $14.95  pg 191 idea book
Itty Bitty Banners stamp set  #126255 (w)  $15.95  #126257 (c)  $11.95  pg 134 idea book
Square Lattice Embossing folder  #119976  $7.95  pg 189 idea book
Dazzling Details  pg 158  #124117  $2.50   (a little goes a long way)
Big Shot pg 186
Ribbon (I used retired Pretty in Pink to make the ribbon and bow)
snail adhesive pg 177 

Cut your circles and and you saying.  Tape them down onto the smaller Very Vanilla c/s and  create a look you like-layering them on top of one another.  Leave out 2 different sizes for later.  After everything is taped down-run the whole piece of paper through your Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing folder.  Add ribbon and tape off onto the back of the Very Vanilla cs.  Tape the Very Vanilla c/s to the Lucky Limeade leave only a small edge of the Lucky Limeade to show.  Then adhere to the to card front.  Add you bow and then add the 2 last circles using dimensionals so they pop up. (be sure to run the circles thru the Big Shot using the embossing folder before putting them onto your card)  Then apply you Dazzling Details and your card will POP.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  Thanks for looking!!!!!

NEW Dress Pop n Cut Shadow box

Hi Everyone,  I have taken a week off of posting,  I have had many of you asking where I have been.  Well,  I am back.  Let me tell you.  My husband and my daughter have been in London for the past 8 days.  Ali's school -Cascade Christian- has trips the kids can take for I-term and going to London and Paris was one of the trips.  What fun they have had.  The weather has been all over the board but it didn't stop them from going and seeing most of London.  Today, they left for Paris and will be coming home at the end of the week.
I stayed home.  Me and my herd of animals.  By the time you board all of my herd it costs about the same as me going so I opted out of this trip and I got to redecorate Alis room and do many things I could get done with everyone here.  And I have just about finished.  Plus,  I got to play a little with my girlfriends.  You know what I am talking about.  Lunches, shopping,  days of leisure,  and whatever it is I wanted to do.  The only down day I have had was Sunday and I did NOTHING!.  But with that being said I do want to share with you what I have made and I just love it and I know Ali is going to love it too.  Now remember she hasn't seen it and since she doesn't have internet there I know I can post it and she will not see it so she'll be totally surprised!  I can't wait to see her face.

 Before they left I bought the new Dress Pop n Cuts.  I just love it!  You can make cards that pop out,  (I have altered them to put other things inside of the cards to have them pop out also)  or you can make shadow boxes.  So many other things you can do with them.  Also, you can use just about anything you want to make the dresses and you don't have to just use the framelits.  Let me show you what I made for my world traveler.

On the tube-  snowing outside and catching a few winks.  These guys never stop.  They are seeing everything and doing everything.  Can't wait to hear all about there trip. 

All 5 dresses have lots of details.
It's hard to see but the black is polka dots in black glitter and I used cupcake liners for the skirt.   The  pink is pink & green tulle and  I added pink & green pearls throughout the skirt.

The skirt is all different layers of paper that has been glittered.  The pink top has pearls and glitter.

The layers and layers of pleats are made from a cupcake liner .  Black diamond belt and accent neck line.

Stampin' Up's 5/8" floral  trim in the New Spring Catalog.  I love this.  You can color it, add rhinestones to the center, put some together and make a bouquet, and if you heat them with your heat gun you get a totally different look.  I love these!
Let me know what you think.  I love to read your comments.  I will be posting more but now I'm off to stamp with my girlfriends.  Enjoy your day!!!
