Same Layout, 3 Different Looks

Today's set of cards all use the same layout, but different papers and colors. I wanted to use up some of the scrap pieces from my dsp stacks, so I made similar cards. This first one uses papers from the All Abloom stack. The black label is the new Chalkboard paper and stamped with the new Chalk ink.

I love a classic black and white card, and this one uses pieces my upline sent me. The original dsp is 12x12.

And this last one is very CAS. One strip of dsp and then ribbon at the bottom. Again the chalkboard paper and ink.

I think the first one is my favorite, I love the pretty papers. Which one is yours?
Thank you for having a look today!

Valentine CASE

Today's card share is one I CASE'd from another Stampin' Up! demo, Sam Donald. While my version is a bit different, it has the same concept and layout.

I've used the same Irresistibly Yours dsp, which you can get for free from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. The stars pattern is a fun touch for a Valentine card I think! The large hearts are punched out with the Sweetheart punch.

I added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and another tiny heart punched with the Itty Bitty Accents pack.

It's similar to the heart balloon card I shared last week, but in a pretty CAS way, and I love it!!

Thanks so much for having a look!!

Stampin' Up!'s Embossing Folders

My last two posts focused on uses for embossing folders. Well, today Stampin' Up! released it's new Weekly Deals, and what is this weeks sales items?! Embossing Folders!! Totally coincidental, we don't know what will be on sale until that day, but what perfect timing!! :)

There are 6 different embossing folders on sale!! AND the cute Texture Boutique machine, which embosses only. What a perfect bundle. I thought I would share a few projects from previous posts that use embossing folders.

OK, I think that's enough! LOL Just a sampling of the basic to advanced use of the embossing folders. Plus my video the other day using the clay with them!

If you purchase all the sale folders and the cute machine, you qualify for one FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!! Total bonus!!

Well, I must be off today, luckily the road crews have done a wonderful job removing all the snow from Sunday. I would say we got about 5-6 inches that day. Had to break out the snowblower too!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! :)

Northern Flurry

So how much snow have you got from this big storm?!! LOL We have enough here, I must say!! Anyway, today's card uses the ink to embossing folder technique.

I inked the Northern Flurry embossing folder with the retired Not Quite Navy ink on the raised side, then slid my card stock in and pressed the folder onto it. I also inked the edges of the panel.

The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree set, and I tied on some silver 1/4" ribbon along the side, and added a few rhinestones to the snowflakes. This makes a pretty winter card, without actually embossing it.

I have opened an Etsy shop called Stamperpam. I have two listings right now!! lol I plan on adding more card sets in the next few weeks. But I wanted to mention my shop in case anyone missed the video.

My favorite Sale-A-Bration product this week is the Blendabilities. My upline mentioned that she is getting some during this sale, and has got me convinced to do the same!! lol With any $50.00 purchase you can pick one set of Blendabilities for FREE!! They come in a pack of three, a light, medium, and dark of certain Stampin' Up! colors. There are four brand new colors available in the Occasions catalog too!!

Thanks for stopping in for a look today!!

Get Well Wishes

Hello! I have not stamped on patterned paper for so long, and I love the look. So I took a stamp from the Flower Shop set and stamped it onto some In Colors DSP, then punched it out. The stems are from a hostess set called Hello There.

I also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to give the background some clouds in the sky. I wasn't sure what greeting I wanted, so I got out the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and decided on the get well sentiment. I also had to add some pearls to the flower centers to finish them off.

The new Weekly Deals have been posted from Stampin' Up! There are markers, Blendabilities, and my favorite, twine!! You can check them all out by visiting my online store!

Thanks so much for having a look today!!

Stampin' Up!'s January Customer Thank You Card

Hi there! I wanted to share my customers Thank You card for this month! Anyone who shops with me throughout the month of January will receive this card as my Thank You to you! You can shop through my online Stampin' Up! website anytime, and anywhere in the U.S.

This uses one of my favorite color combos, Real Red and Coastal Cabana! I've used 3 different stamp sets on this one, the sentiment uses Four You, feathers use the Four Feathers(which is still available to purchase from the carry over from the Holiday Occasions!) and the heart is from the Peace Love & Cupcakes set.

I added a strip of dsp, and a double layer of Real Red 1/4" Cotton Trim and White Bakers Twine. I added a large rhinestone to the center of the trims, and 3 small ones on the top corner.

That's it from me today, thanks so much for stopping in!!
