Getting Inspired at Stampin Up! Convention

Hey Everyone!

I have just returned from  Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, and all I can say is WOW!!!

Almost 6,000 Stampin' Up! Demonstrators gathered for this year's 25th Anniversary celebration & convention.  It was full of laughter, tears, & unforgettable moments.  And, of course, tons of beautiful samples to inspire.  Here are a few more photos that I would like to share with you...

This board shows samples of all the Make & Take projects we came home with.  There was so much going on that mine are not completed yet, but can wait to create them....AWSOME!!!

We visited the Home Office & Distribution Center and left messages for the staff ...

Much, much more to share, so stay tuned!

Happy New Year 2013

Happy New Year 2013!
A brand new year...hmmm.  Yes, we all do it.  We all look to January 1st for a clean slate to fix all that we have been doing too much of, and those things that we don't do enough of.  And so, here goes...
Too Much of:
List Making....(I'm good a lists & not follwing through)
Not enough of:
Spending time with God
Spending time with Family
Thanking People
So, I begin with thanking each of you.  Thank you for your business and your friendship.  Thank you for allowing me to share what I love with you!!!
I have been asked by several of you what I send for Christmas cards, so here is this year's cards.  I designed one layout (actually CASED) and created some of them with the Snow Festival designer paper and some with the Candlelight Christmas paper.  I loved them both...and it is hard for me to make the same card over & over.  I just had to use the Snow Flurry die cut, and the Window Frames Framelets.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen...isn't it a great one.  It's a gorgeous font that says exactly what I wanted to say :)

To each of you, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas & wish you a Happy New Year!!!

An Amazing Technique

Hey Gals!

Even though I haven't been active posting, I have been very busy with the Technique Geeks, workshops, & planning for upcoming classes!, I want to share an amazing technique I discovered when planning my monthly Technique Geek class.

This technique is called, Faux Cloisonne.  It is very simple, and has amazing results!  The first step is to select images from magazines, or designer paper, that have an appealing color pattern or color pallet.  Then you stamp a "line art" image in Versamark, & heat emboss with gold embossing powder.  You then cut out the image & layer over Basic Black cardstock.  Here are some samples...

Aren't these embossed images gorgeous!  The gals in the Technique class had so much fun selecting their images and comparing the results.
Next, you use your gorgeous image to complete your card.  Here is our completed card...(note, I used a different magazine image for my card)
I love how the completed card came out...I will definitely be using this technique again!

Card ingredients:  Card base, Soft Suede, Big Shot Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Basic Black & Very Vanilla cardstock, & the gorgeous Champagne Glimmer paper from the Holiday Mini.  Also, Soft Suede ink, Stamp sets Day of Gratitude & Seasonal Sayings (the sentiment from Seasonal Sayings is available as a single stamp.  Check out my business website for all the great stamps that are available as single stamps for a limited time only...

We have a great time at our monthly Technique Geeks class.  No commitment, the only requirement is to pre-register.  Click on the chalkboard for upcoming classes.

Hope you enjoyed todays ideas... Thanks for stopping by...

    Fall Inspired Card

    Fall is my favorite time of the year...I am so inspired by the changing leaves. (Have you noticed them yet...)
    I saw a similar card designed by a fellow Stampin Up! demonstrator on the Demonstrator gallery, and wanted to re-create it to share with you.
    The background was stamped with the En Francais' background stamp,  Leaf stamp was from Gently Falling stamp set,inked with Versamark, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged over the leaf image with Pumpkin Pie ink.

    The Early Expresso cardstock on the bottom was dry embosed with our new Woodgrain Textured Impressions embossing Folder (Holiday Mini pg. 33 love it...).  The sentiment was stamped with the new Seasonal Sayings stamp set (Holiday Mini pg. 34).  It was then die cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelits, and then I used the Essentials paper-Piercing pack.

    Hope you enjoyed todays card... thanks for stopping by.
