Mailable Monday - Well Not Really

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  What a weekend!  December is always a busy and exciting month but this weekend was particularly exciting!  On Sunday I had a class using the Tags & Tidings Bundle and the Midwest South Demonstrator District Manager, Chad Williams came to my class!  I mean my third class in the last five years?  Yeah, no pressure :-)  Hahaha!  The class was small but mighty and I hope they liked the tags.  I'll be sharing them later this week!

And then last night, we had a little meet and greet for Tulsa area demos which was really nice to meet some new friends in the area!

Now on to today's card.  So it IS simple but it's not mailable due to it's size.  But, this time of year, it's a great little card to throw in a package or gift bag!  It's amazing how many little gifts come up and it's nice to have some options for those!  I'll be making some more of these with our Narrow Notecards!

I don't always decorate my envelopes but these are so cute, I just had to!  And I love the bright colors.  Since this set is photopolymer, it's a breeze to line everything up!

Do yourself a favor and go whip up a few narrow note cards now to have on hand for your holiday giving!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 152

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another Fab Friday challenge.  Time really does need to slow down for the holidays!  Too many things to do!  Anyone else feel me?  But since it is time, here's the challenge!

I kind of loooove these colors!  I know five is a lot but these are so gorgeous together and perfect for the holidays!  I was inspired by my friend Charlet, and a stunning card she posted this week!  The Dashing Along Designer Series Paper was a promotion earlier this year but has made a comeback while supplies last!

If you didn't grab it the first time around, you totally should, for this print alone!  I had forgotten about it, so I dug it out just for this page!  The DSP is actually Garden Green but you know what I love about SU is the ability to mix and match with your projects and this works just perfectly here.

I made a wreath very easily using my two sets of dies and then stamped the leaf image right over.  It looked too naked otherwise :-)  For a few finishing details, I used the sprig punch and some glimmer paper as well as our metallic pearls.  I just love this one!

I hope you like this color combo and will give it a try at Fab Friday yourself!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did, too!

Happy stamping!

Making Christmas Bright

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  This month is flying by and it's the one time of year I don't want it to!  I meant to post the past few nights but we had our small group Christmas party so I'd been busy preparing for that!  Now I'm in full prep mode for my class I'm having on Sunday and now we have a winter storm warning coming for that, BOOOOO!

Anyway, here's a little card that I stamped over the weekend and I may be in love with these fun a dn festive colors!

I also love that Poppy Parade ribbon!  I picked it up over the Black Friday sales and I just love it!  Have you tried it?  I also really love that falling stars background stamp, isn't it fun?

Happy stamping!

PS, I'll come back this afternoon and add supplies, gotta run this morning!

Mailable Monday

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  I have a simple card for you today with very little stamping!  I used my washi tape to make a little background and then placed the cut out panel over.  Viola, festive deer!

A simple stamped sentiment is all it needed. I mounted it on the Festive Farmhouse DSP.  When I use DSP as a card front, I always just adhere the panel to a Thick Whisper White Card base, I don't use the DSP itself for the card base.  While it does use the big shot, I think it's still a pretty simple card!

 It was a bit hard to photograph due to the metallic strips of washi but it's simple and kind of stunning, I think!

Happy stamping!

Fancy Friday - Christmas Card Edition

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday (almost if you're reading this Thursday night, ha)!   It's time again for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  You are really going to want to hop along because we have added some amazing new friends and I'm so excited about it!  I mean did you SEE who's blog you just came from??????  If you didn't come from Teneal's blog, just keep clicking and you'll go all the way around.  If you're new to Fancy Friday, we are a group of current and past Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team members who get together to show you pretty things once a month!

This month's theme is Christmas cards which are my FAVORITE!  I whipped up a simple but fancy one design, I think.  These will go to my special people!

You guys!  I didn't even realize until I went to do my post, that little mini sequin snuck in there!  Oh my goodness!  How did I miss that editing?  And how did it stick on there?  It actually doesn't look half bad, does it?

Anyway, I wanted to make my background look like snow so I used my Shimmery Embossing Paste and just swiped it all over.  It's very sparkly in real life!  Once it was dry, I decided to try to stamp on it, and it worked!  For my sentiment, I inked up one of our Spectrum Pads in a festive combo!

Ok, don't judge my ugly reinkers ;-)  A few of them are OLD!  These pads are so fun, have you tried them?  See how the ink is spaced out?  They pull apart to store so they don't bleed and then when you want to stamp you just slide that little tab over and they scoot next to one another.  If you haven't given these a chance, you really need to!  So fun!

I finished it off with some fun accents including sequins (including that stow-away, I guess), shimmer ribbon (I think it looks so classy), and on of our All is Bright Paper Clips!  It's still fairly simple but looks so fancy!

Now you're off to see my fancy friend, Sue!  You will just love what she did!

Happy stamping!
