New Workshops

I've just updated my class list for 2013.
Won't you join me for some fun & stampin'?  :)

Triple Easel Card

As you can see, I'm working hard now. Well, hard on crafting that is! ;) I found this tutorial for a Triple Easel Card! How cool is that!?! And it folds up nicely to fit in a standard size envelope! Sweet!

I used the Stampin' Celebration Challenge #61 as my inspiration and I liked the nature feel of it more than the holiday feel so I went with flowers & butterflies.  I'm just really ready for the New Year! :) 

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Vellum Sheet, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Ink: Whisper White, Versamark
Stamps: En Francais, Everything Eleanor
Accessories: Glimmer Brads, Big Shot, Framelits, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, White Embossing Powder
Have a fab day!

Tiling the Baby Wipes Blues

I'm bored.  Not really bored-bored but more "I seem to have lost the motivation I had yesterday" bored.  I have tons I want to accomplish and today was scheduled for shopping for organizational items.  I have big plans of organizing at least one of the rooms in my house while I'm off the next four days.  However, that all changed and I'm going shopping with friends tomorrow.  For some reason though, it just threw me off course. I suppose I could still go shopping today.  Hmm, decisions, decisions. ;)  In the meantime, I'm being crafty which is fun since I haven't done that in forever!
I've combined a whole bunch of techniques below - Faux Tiling, Baby Wipe Reinkers, Embossing, sketching - you name it, it's probably there! ;)
Supplies: All Stampin' Up! except the Baby Wipes
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Versamark, Marina Mist
Stamps: Everthing Eleanor, En Francais, Apothecary Art
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Brights Deisgner Buttons, Retired 1/8" Whisper White Ribbon, Aqua Painter, Shimmer Mist (made from Shimmer Paint & alcohol)
Have a fab day!

Happy 2013!

It's hard to believe but 2013 is just days away!  3 days, in fact!  This year has just flown by so fast I didn't send out too many Christmas cards due to time constraints.  Instead, I'll send out some New Year's cards!  This is a very CAS card with two layers - the second layer being 3 Red Glimmer Paper dots so really it's one layer! ;)

I first embossed Happy 2013 in White Embossing Powder then went back over with some flourishes stamped with Versamark & added some clear embossing powder for a watermark finish.  After I added some dots and a few spritzes of Shimmer Mist, Voila!  LOVE. IT!  :)  This card took exactly 5 minutes, 32 seconds to make.
Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Basic Black, Red Glimmer Paper
Ink: Whisper White, Versamark
Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Memorable Moments, Word Play
Accessories: Shimmer Mist, Embossing Powder, 1/2" circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch (for multiple circle sizes)
Have a fab day!
