30 Years of Stamping

The Sisters are pulling out some vintage rubber for this weeks theme. In honor of 
Stampin' Up!s 30 Year Anniversary
we have made cards with our very first stamp set. 

 Karla is up first, she really mixed it up old and new for this colorful card. Go to her blog to read about her project.


 This is Debbie's card for today's challenge. Her card is beautiful and elegant and uses one of my all time favorite stamp sets, here is a link to her blog.


 Next we have Jennifer's Fall Get Well card. Really like the masculine feel she captured, go to her post to learn more about her design.


Lastly we have Cindy's super cute Birthday card. Can you spot the extra fun touch she added to her bunny? Click here to "hop" (get it?? 😃) on over to her blog to read up on all of the details.

Oh Ribbon, How I Love Thee!

  This week, we are using ribbon on our projects because who doesn't love ribbon?  Each year, Stampin' Up! has such a wonderful assortment of ribbons - the colors, textures, and styles are so varied, it's hard not to buy them all up!  I have to say, we probably all have way more ribbon than we can use, but it's too great of an embellishment not to have!



  Karla made this beautiful Christmas card.  Don't you love how she used the ribbon on this card?  I love it!  See what inspired her and get all of the details on her blog here.


  Here is Cindy's card.  She used a variety of different ribbons.  Find out which ones on her blog here.


  Debbie used the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle for her Christmas card.  Be sure to hop over to her blog post here to get more information about this project.



 We have a set of cards from Jennifer this time.  Just a strip of this new burlap ribbon from the Holiday catalog adds a great rustic feel.  Stop by Jennifer's blog to learn more.

  It's obvious that our designers have Christmas preparations on their minds! :)  We hope you loved seeing these great ribbon-focused projects as much as we had creating them for you.

Thanks for stopping by - have a fabulous weekend and happy stamping!!

Shake It Up!

Hello everyone,

Happy Friday. We are so excited to "Shake things up" for you today. We are sharing some great shaker cards with all of you. These cards are so fun to make and the recipient thinks they are awesome. An interactive card is always more fun than just one you open and a shaker card definitely falls under that category.



Our first shaker card is a glistening reindeer Christmas card made by Jennifer Rawlings.  You need to head over to her blog to get all the details. You won't want to miss them.



Next, we have a festive cup of cheer shaker card made by Cindy Blekas. Wouldn't you love to get a latte where the band has a fun shaker element to it? Want more information? You'll need to skip on over to Cindy's blog.




This cancer awareness card  made by Debbie Naylor is very timely. It would certainly cheer up and help someone to keep their courage. Hop on over to her blog for all the details. 


And finally, we have a fun shaker card that would be great to send to one of your favorite wee people. Imagine the smile it would put on their face. Visit Rachel Yurkanin's blog for all the details.

CASE study: 2018 Holiday Catalog

Inspiration abounds in the new Holiday Catalog.  Our designers were asked to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a project from the 2018 Holiday Catalog to show you the many ways to take one idea and make it your own.  Let's get to it!




First up we have the ever-so-talented guest designer, Cindy Blekas.  She pulled her inspiration from the Santa bags featured on pages 18 and 20 to create this fun candy-cane gift bag.  Wouldn't you love to get a little gift packaged like this one?  Take a ride over to Cindy's blog here for all the details.




Debbie Naylor was so inspired by page 28 of the catalog that she created TWO cards!  These are great examples of ways to feature our beautiful Designer Series Papers.  Hop over to her blog here to learn more.




Karla Anders' card was CASE'd from the So Santa card on page 23 of the Holiday Catalog.  These Santa images are so adorable!  I love seeing Santa get out of his classic suite like the rest of us.  Be sure to visit Karla's blog here to learn more.



 Our next project was created by Jennifer Rawlings.  She was inspired by the projects featured on page 42 but changed up the theme from country comfort to Christmas.  Check out her blog here to see how this project came together.


Thank you for joining us today.  We hope you too are inspired by our projects and those featured in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  If you do not yet have a copy of this catalog, be sure to contact your SU! Independent Demonstrator or any one of us for help.

Have a lovely weekend and we'll see you back here soon!
