Cheers to You and Circle Circus

Here's another card using Circle Circus and Cheers to You.  The colors are Concord Crush and Delightful Daffodil.  If you haven't seen these colors in person, you must.  They are much richer than shows in this picture -- especially the Concord Crush.

Tiny Bubbles

The card below, done in Night of Navy and Whisper White, uses the Medallion Stamp and the champagne glasses from Cheers to You.  The bubbles at the top and bottom were made using a stamp from Circle Circus and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

This card would work great for a wedding or anniversary.  You could even add a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped and punched with the Word Window punch, at the bottom right.

I've made a similar card in black and gold that we will be doing at an upcoming class.

The more feedback I get, the better I can tailor the classes to you.

Thanks, Sue

August Club Cards

Here are the two cards we made at our August club meeting. 

This card uses Elements of Style.  The sentiment is from Wellness Wishes.  The purpose was to show how quick and easy it is to watercolor with the watercolor crayons and an aqua painter.

This card uses the new Concord Crush ribbon.  I love that new In Color.  It's so rich.  We used the direct to rubber technique on the flowers from Inspired By Nature and used one of the sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  {For some reason I can't get this picture to turn the right direction.  It's correct on my computer, but it turns when it uploads.  I'll try to figure it out, but if I don't, just turn your head to look :) }

Open House and Ribbon Share

Just got back from my last trip of the summer -- up to Michigan to see family.  Had a great time and now the Roots are gearing up for the start of school and fall sports.  Planning to get in one last open house and one last group order before the Summer Mini expires at the end of the month.

Open House:  Saturday, August 21, 2010.  Drop in between 10:00am and noon.  Location:  my house.

Join me for make-and-takes, samples, refreshments, door prizes and fun!  I'll be using my new builder wheel for the make-and-take.

E-mail me at the address in my header or add a comment to this post for more information.

Ribbon Share:  available for the new in-color 1/2" stitched poly ribbon.  Get 3 yards of each of the 5 in-colors (total 15 yards) for $8.95 (plus shipping and tax).  We used the Concord Crush ribbon in the last stamp club meeting.  I'll have samples available to see on Saturday.

There are 5 ribbon shares available.  Let me know if you'd like one.  Also, if there is something else you'd like to see offered as a share, let me know.  I'll see if anyone is interested.  If you have any questions about product shares and how they work, just ask.

Thanks for reading.  Hope to see you soon!

Hostess Bonanza and Punched Posies card

Calling all hostesses or those with a giant wish list. From now until 8/31 you can earn extra FREE hostess merchandise. If your party order earns $350 or more, you can earn an EXTRA $25 in free hostess goodies. So, a $350 party could earn you a Level 2 hostess set and $65 worth of FREE stuff.

I'd love to do a party for you.  Contact me for details.  It's easy.  It's fun.  You earn free Stampin' Up prodcuts.  What could be better?


Went with a simple card today.  It uses the Level 2 hostess Set Punched Posies from the summer mini catalog.  There are 8 stamps in this set, 5 of which match Stampin' Up punches.  The other 3 stamps are accents (stem, leaf, butterfly body). This set will no longer be available after 8/31.  Bonus: As explained above, if you have a party (or make your own purchase) of $350, you can earn this set and get $65 in FREE merchandise.

I used Melon Mambo ink to randomly stamp a background. Then I stamped the image once on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the circle scallop. I punched the new XL circle scallop punch out of textured Melon Mambo card stock. Simple, but very cute.

Friends Never Fade

Here is yet another card using the new stamp set Friends Never Fade.  The colors are Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight.  The 1/8" taffeta ribbon is from the new catalog, too, and available in several colors.  For a change, I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder the other way, so that it is debossed instead of embossed.

Friends Never Fade and Vintage Wallpaper

Here's another card using the new set Friends Never Fade.

The background is Whisper White card stock embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  The colored layer and the ink are both the new color Cherry Cobbler.
