Mojo Monday Sketch 388: Birthday Stars

IMG_1036-0

Thanks to Wanda at Mojo Monday, who created this sketch:

I didn’t like the star above so I tucked it under.  I kinda like the Hello Honey, Real Red and Indigo combination.  I hadn’t used that new ribbon yet (heavy, almost like an upholstery trim) and wanted to go more primary with the colors.

Here are the main Stampin’ Up supplies I used:

It’s nice to get a little somethin’ for spending with me!

  As a thank you, anyone placing an online order with me will get the card kit in the mail to make this card.  We aren’t allowed to include stamped images but you can easily swap those out for your own.  All the cutting and embossing is done for you!  If you have ordered this week already, you are on the list!

(locals, we are making this card this week so no need to place an online order if I’m seeing you)

Go Stamp Something!

Ready to ring in the stampin’ New Year….

 In a few days, we will say goodbye to 2014 and the Holiday catalogs, which end on January 5th

and say hello to 2015 with the new SU Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs!

  20150106_Occasions_en-US  20150106_SAB_en-US

If you haven’t rec’d yours in the mail from me and you were expecting one, please email me.  You should have received both by now but they do get lost sometimes. I cannot post the digital copies here until they go live on January 6th but I’m happy to mail you one if you do not have an SU demo.

If you look on page 49 of the Occasions catalog, you will see some items carrying over.  (some have an * and are while supplies last so be sure to check that)

Some of my favorites NOT carrying over (altho SU could surprise us and put them in the next annual catty)  are these gems below.  If you want to add them to your collection by January 5th, call or email or order them online quickly!  There are more things not carrying over in the catalog, but these were my favorites that I’m sad to see go:

A few more days left on our year end close-outs!  Many are from the Holiday catalog, which ends January 5th.

On the right side of my shopping cart, you will see a drop down option to sort by Newest or < Price, so you see what is the cheapest.

Nice to be able to sort by what you want to see!  Doing a quick looksie,  here are a few things that I added to my own stash:

 

I added the stars stamp set because they are photopolymer and they go inside the star framelits so nicely.

The Trim the Tree paper stack is a really nice traditional Cherry/Green patterned paper and for only 4.19.

Under the Tree specialty paper is a thick, card stock like patterned paper perfect for boxes.  It’s kraft/white print on one side and espresso or cherry or garden green prints on the other side.

The card kits are really super for only 3.99!   You get 8 cards, envelopes and liners,  buttons, twine and the cut banner to create whatever you want for your holiday cards next year.  Add any greeting or tree or ornament stamp and it’s all cut for you!

Everything is ‘while supplies last’ so don’t wait too long.

A few good things this week!

I love that stamp set and the flower punch is nice also if you have the coordinating stamp set.

Click on the items below to see them in my shopping cart for details.

I’ll be back to work, posting samples and videos after the New Year!

I hope however you ring in the New Year, you will be safe and warm!

Black Splash with Blendies

I’m drawn to black and white patterns, in clothing or home accessories and especially paper.

When I saw the new Stampin’ Up catalog had a pack of paper designed just for me (wink) I was SO happy!

It’s called Back to Black and has lots of striking, pretty patterns. See page 187 in your SU catty.

You can color your DSP with markers but the new Blendabilities are SUPER smooth and leave no streaks.

(I call them Blendies, since we are close now:)

Even Matt, with his discerning and sometimes critical eye, couldn’t tell it was hand colored and wasn’t bought that way.

The first one I made I colored in the stems and all the leaves/flowers.  It needed a little restraint on my part to avoid those the 2nd try!

When you try this at home, leave a little border of white around your images as the Blendies will soak up to the edges naturally.

I used the lightest yellow in the Daffodil Assorment #130998, the lightest red in the Cherry Cobbler assortment #130995

and the lightest green in the Olive assortment #130999.

I love the Black and white version also, with a pop of red!

The card is Basic Black, 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″, scored in landscape position at 4-1/4″ for a top fold card.

The skinny layer is 4-1/8″ x 4-1/8″

and the DSP is 4″ x 4″ so you can get 9 cards from each sheet.

The sweet greetings are from a new hostess set coming out soon, I think in the Holiday catalog, called Good Greetings.

Go Stamp Something!
