Dragonfly Dreams Note Card

I'm back again with the Falling in Love Designer Paper,  Dragonfly Dreams Bundle and the So Detailed Thinlits. Can you blame me? LOL! This is another card Patty designed for our "play" date. It also uses our Crumb Cake Note Cards and the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Is it bad we want to use the Stitched Framelits for every card? I know they are on back order, but should be back in our warehouse on January 16th. As soon as they are available I will let you know.
The Dragonfly is die cut with Gold Foil Paper, so pretty! The lacey die cut is from the So Detailed Thinlits, page 52, LOVE this set. The flowers are from the Falling for You stamp set, on page 51. I can't for the life of me remember where the sentiment is from. I have gone through the Occasions and SAB catalogs several times.....and I really like the font too. I need to write this stuff down when we get together. Patty is trying to remember and as soon as I know I will update this post.

Cutting Guide:

Crumb Cake Note Cards (they are already scored and have a matching envelope)
3 1/4" x 4 3/4" Falling in Love Designer Series Paper
1 3/4" x 3 1/2" So Safron cardstock
Scrap of Very Vanilla for the sentiment

Supply List:


Remember many of these products won't be available until January 4th.

You can order from the Holiday Catalog until January 3, 2017, and don't forget about the fabulous sale going on right now.

Balloon Adventure Shaker Card

Christmas Eve my son proposed to his girlfriend. So excited! No details as to when they will be getting married yet.

So this is the card I made for them. I had just received this bundle, ( ok, so it was my second pre-order......don't judge....have you seen the Occasions Catalog?) Balloon Adventure stamp set and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits. You can purchase as a bundle (and save 10%) on January 4th. It's only a week away.......just sayin'!

My colors are Island Indigo (card base), and Bermuda Bay, with a splash of Gold Glimmer Paper. See that pretty little bow? That is from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment Kit on page 9. I love the Ombre Ribbon in the kit and it was the perfect little something, something for my card. And, did you know that this set coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch? That's what I used to punch the vellum with the heart. 
The shaker part is:
Sprinkles Embellishments (page 32) sequins and little pearls
Gold Mica Flakes (from the Holiday Catalog)
Gold Glitter

I'm going to try and do a video this week-end. This bundle is so easy to work with. Wait until you see what else you can do with this die.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Scored at 5 1/2" Island Indigo cardstock
3 3/4" x 5 1/2" Bermuda Bay cardstock
3 1/8" x 4 5/8" Window Sheet, Thick Whisper White cardstock
Scraps of Gold Glimmer Paper and Island Indigo

Dragonfly Dreams, Really is a Dream Bundle/LAST DAY TO SIGN UP FOR EMBELLISHMENT SHARE


Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I did, but now I'm glad I can concentrate on all the new products that will be available on Wednesday, January 4th. Only 8 more days until you can order.

This is the last card I made this card with Patty and Lisa a few weeks ago. One of the products I am most excited about is our Watercolor Pencils. They are amazing! In this card I used my Aqua Painter to blend the colors.

Start by coloring with your pencils onto Watercolor Paper. The more color you lay down, the darker or more intense color you will get.

Then take your Aqua Painter and blend the colors. Easy peasy, right? So now you have a beautiful background for your Dragonfly.

And this is what you get. I added the sentiment with Black Ink (also comes in this set) and some Gold Metallic Thread, then the Dragonfly with Dimensionals. Isn't it stunning? (If I don't say so myself.....lol)


One other thing I did was add some Gold Wink of Stella splattering before I put the card together. Make sure to use Fast Fuse to adhere your Watercolor Paper to your card base of Peekaboo Peach, you need something strong. I also added some of the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Peekaboo Peach cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" Watercolor Paper

Supply List:



Make sure you take a peek at Patty's and Lisa's cards.

Stylish Stems Framelits, Oh Boy!


I'm sorry for the late post. Got up early to do the post only to find ants in my kitchen (yuck) and upstairs on my desk (where my computer is, of course).

Ok, now onto my fun card. This was another card we did (Patty Bennett and Lisa Rhine) a couple of weeks ago. Can I just say? I am in LOVE with these framelits.They are called Stylish Stems Framelits and have a matching stamp set, Special Reason. You can save 10% by getting the bundle. Check out page 42 of the Occasions Catalog to see them.

I love that you can die cut the flower and use the negative or you can use the frame  that cuts the whole flower (which I didn't do for this card). I've got lots of new goodies on my card. The background paper is from the Succulent Garden Designer Paper, (page 21). Also, see that Doily? They are white on one side and vanilla on the other, thank you Stampin' Up! You can find them on page 51 of the Occasions Catalog. I backed my flowers with a layer of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, added the Old Olive banner with a staple and some Linen Thread.

The Doily was added to the back of the focal point and attached to the card with
Dimensionals.

I used the thank you from That's the Tag stamp set on page 23. This set also comes as a bundle with matching thinlits, Timeless Tags.

All of these products will be available on January 4th.

Here is a look at all three of our cards. Love how they are all a little bit different. 

Check out Patty's blog HERE!
Check out Lisa's blog HERE!

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, scored at 5 1/4"
4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Succulent Garden Designer Paper
3 3/8" x 3 7/8" Sweet Sugarplum cardstock

Santa Gift Card Holder


Do you need a fast gift? I've got just the thing. These Santa Gift Card Holders are the perfect little touch for all those gift cards you've (I mean, I've) purchased this year. LOL!

Don't you think they turned out cute? If I don't say so myself.....




And so easy with the Envelope Punch Board. Its the first size on the chart. You only need a 5" x 5" piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper.


The corner rounder is on the opposite side of where you punch on each side. I also sponged around the edges with Real Red Ink. NOTE: I've listed both the Stitched Shapes and Layering Squares Framlits in my supply list, but you only need one or the other.

Cutting Guide:

5" x 5" Real Red Cardstock
3/4" x 8 1/4" Black
Scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper Or Silver Foil Paper
Scrap of black for inside buckle

Totally Trees for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge

This was a card we did in my Card Class this month and works out perfect for this weeks challenge, Circles, Ovals or Squares. You can play along too by going to: http://suochallenges.com/
I've been wanting to do a Palm Tree with this set and finally got it done. Good thing, since this set in on the "hit" list (aka retirement list). So get it while you can! I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for my background in Pool Party cardstock and then cut into 3 strips and adhered to the card base. Each strip is 1 1/4" x 5 1/4".
Usually we stamp first then die cut, but in this case, I die cut the Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then stamped. The sentiment is from Suite Sayings and I used the Triple Banner Punch to make the flag end. The "ribbon" is 4 strands from the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon. You just pull the strands from the ribbon. I wrapped it around the card and into a bow. Much more manageable than the thick burlap ribbon.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Crumb Cake cardstock scored at 5 1/2"
3 3/4" x 5 1/4" Pool Party Embossed with the Seaside Embossing Folder
Scraps of Thick Whisper White for the oval and sentiment

Color Guide:

Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz

Stamps Used:

Totally Trees and Suite Sayings

I hope you take time out of your busy day to play along. Don't forget to post your card on: http://suochallenges.com/

Are You Ready to see Some New Products?

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of stamping with my two stamping friends in crime partners, Patty Bennett and Lisa Rhine. Lisa was so kind to host. These are all the cards we made between the 3 of us. Not bad for one days work! We used all NEW stamps and dies and I will be sharing these cards in the next couple of weeks. You can also see Patty and Lisa's cards with the links at the bottom of this post. It's funny how we all set out to do the same card, but all turned out just a bit different. I love that!



So first up is the Cool Treats card. You can see this stamp set with matching Framelits on page 32 of the 2017 Occasions Catalog. If you are a customer of mine who has purchased from me in the last 6 months, you should be getting your copy this week. I always send myself one so I know when my customers are getting their copies. I received my Sale-a-bration catalog on Saturday. Now, if you don't already have a demo, I would be happy to send both the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs to you. Just email me, cindee@pacbell.net. Don't know what Sale-a-brations is? From Jan 4, 2017 through March 31, 2017 any time you order $50 or more (before shipping and tax) you can choose a FREE gift out of the Sale-a-brations (SAB) catalog. Woo hoo! Its the most fabulous time of the year! LOL!

Doesn't this card make you think of summer? And I'm loving this card design too. I have a Whisper White card base, then a layer of Pool Party with another layer of Whisper White. The last piece was cut at an angle so you could see the Pool Party layer and a strip of the stripped Designer Series Paper that is in the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper. This sentiment also comes in this stamp set, along with a couple more.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5 1/5"
4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Pool Party cardstock
4" x 4 1/2" (on the right side you will put a mark and cut from that mark to the opposite corner to get the diagonal.)
1/4" x 4 3/8" Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper
Scraps of Whisper White and Watermelon Wonder for the sentiment

Supply List:



You can check out Patty's Post Here! Lisa's Post HERE!

All of these products will be available to order on January 4th. So get your wish lists ready. Stampin' Up! has done another fantastic catlalog for us.

But in the mean time you can still order from the Holiday Catalog until January 3, 2017, and don't forget about the fabulous sale going on right now.

Little Gifties

As I was strolling the $1 section at Target, I came across these little erasers and thought, maybe my grandkids would like these to give to their friends. And an idea was born! LOL!
They fit perfectly into our 2" x 8" Cello bags. I wanted it to be super simple and cute. The kids went nuts over them. I first only made three (1 for each of them) and asked if they would like them for their friends. YES Grandma! How many? Anthony wanted one bag for each child in his class, Jocelyn wanted 10 and Gianna 7. So I went back to Target to get more erasers.......I ended up with 10 for each of them. they were happy and took them to school today. The Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set with the matching punch was the perfect "quick" tag to use on each of them, remember I'm up to 30 bags. My grandson was impressed that I had a boy and girl gingerbread. High praise from a 7 year old boy.

Each bag had about 16 erasers in them. I put two holes in each one and threaded the (retired) Cherry Cobbler Thick Baker's Twine through and tied in a bow in the back and then trimmed off a couple of inches from the cello bags. For the reindeer I added a Red Glimmer nose punched with the 1/2" Circle Punch. The gingerbread got either Red Glimmer bow tie or hair bow. I used up a bunch of scraps from my Crumb Cake cardstock. Forget to list the 1/8" Hand Held Punch, #134563.

Supply List:



From Target:

2 bags each of:
Snowmen
Penguins
Trees
2 Tubes of:
Santa's
1 Tube of:
Candy canes
All a $1 each.

Ok, now here is a fun "Adult" gift. My friend Lynne Marini is making these fun gag gifts. You can check out her Etsy Store HERE!
