Terrific Trees

Welcome back!  On this Fabulous Friday, we are featuring trees.  There are so many beautiful Stampin' Up! products to showcase trees - from a variety of stamped images, but also in punches, paper, and impression folders.

Our guest designer, Cindy, found these cute little trees in the stack of Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper.  Find out how she made one of those trees pop by heading over to her blog here.


Here is Karla's tree addition for todays post. Love this color combination Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay, you can use this link to go to her blog and read up.


Debbie used the colors from the Sweet Li'l Things DSP on her CASE of the Thoughts & Prayers sample card from the annual catalog on page 26.  Hop over to her blog post here to get all the details about this project.


For my project, I wanted a serene card.  So I created this Praying for You card featuring the trees from the In the Meadow stamp set.  Get all the details about this card by visiting my blog.

Have a Fabulous weekend, and we'll see you back here next week for some fun surprises!

Ready to celebrate Mom with a fabulous card?

  Happy Friday and thanks for visiting us this week!  Today's theme for Fabulous Friday is all about Mom - we're featuring Mother's Day card ideas since that holiday is on Sunday.  What better way to let Mom know how much you love and appreciate her than by creating a handmade card.  Please read on for ideas and inspiration...



  For some, Mother's Day is a tough holiday because we no longer have our Moms with us.  Rachel's card featuring the Sheltering Tree stamp set is perfect for those friends and family members.  Please visit Rachel's blog here for more information about her card.



  And last but not least is my monochromatic card featuring the You've Got This stamp set.  I love this  year's Tip Top Taupe In Color!!  For all the details about my project, please hop over to my blog post here.

Thanks, again, for stopping by.  We hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day weekend!!

Today the Sisters In Stamping wanted to share projects featuring items from the Weekly Deals promotion and Clearance Rack products.  Whether you've just had to cough up some bucks to ol' Uncle Sam, or getting a tax refund, it's a great time to check out what's on sale!



Debbie Naylor used Clearance Rack products to create an awesome dry-erase board with Into the Woods Designer Series Paper and embellished the frame with a fabric flower she built using the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die.  The Bigz dies are great for cutting images using alternative materials or bulk cardstock with your Big Shot.  Visit Debbie’s blog here to learn more.


Rachel Yurkanin used the Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies from the Weekly Deals promotion to make this super cute birthday favor box.  Read more about this brightly colored box on Rachel’s blog here.


I used the Stars Framlits Dies from the Weekly Deals for this fun birthday card.  I also pulled a few embellishments from the Clearance Rack using the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment and some Lost Lagoon ribbon.  Head over to my blog here for more details!


Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit on this Fabulous Friday!  Be sure to contact your demonstrator and check out all the great sales going on, especially those on the Weekly Deals since they will be going away for good on April 18th.  Have a fantastic weekend!
