Hello, Stampers!

I hope this week again finds you happy, healthy and enjoying many creative pursuits! 

I'm dashing off a quick post before I double check my supplies for today's card/purse workshop!  I'm so excited.  I'll post pictures later on!

This past week's cards were inspired by several cards that I found on the internet.  Many thanks to Becky Roberts of www.inkingidaho.com for the inspiration for our Christmas tree card.  Our second card was definitely inspired by Kim Jolley.  You can enjoy more of Kim's work atwww.stampingartfully.blogspot.com 

I L.O.V.E. both of these cards!  Details, yes, but very easy!

BTW, here's another round of tags for my stamp club orders.  I again used my September Paper Pumpkin kit  to create them and I still have the materials to make the cute boxes!!
How have you used your Paper Pumpkin kit?  Send me a picture and I'll post it in our next newsletter!!
For this week's classes, we'll use Timeless Elegance Designer Series Papers to create a beautiful sympathy, thank you, or birthday card and we'll add to our Christmas stash with another "Wowzer!" card.  :-)
***Monday Stampers, I am sad to report that we will not be stamping on November 2.  Mr. Nathan is having some facial surgery and I will be nurse for the day.  Darn basal cells!  I will rejoin you on November 9.

Have a happy weekend and I'll see you again next week!!

Stampin' Hugs and Smiles,
Ree

Video for Mini-Treat Bag Thinlits!

Hi, Stampers!

I LOVE this set of thinlits.  I have used it over and over again with Designer Series Paper, cardstock and even large pages from old stamp magazines.  They are so fun to decorate and come with a host of embellishments.  You'll find them on page 171 of the Annual Catalog.  #137547

Here's one of my favorite Stampin' Up gals, Brandy, doing a quick and informative demo of this great product.  Have a happy stampin' day!!

Christmas Gift Tag Project from Art Gallery Cards

Hi, Stampers!

Here's a quick and easy, but elegant, Christmas gift tag.  It also makes, as my student Cheryl creatively stated, a great scrapbooking journaling card if you don't stamp the Whisper White cardstock.

I hope you'll enjoy making this project.  I'd love to see your version!  Email me at reenathan@bellsouth.net



Here is the supply list for this project.  Happy Stampin'!!

A Free Project For You! Embellished Ornaments Card of the Day!

Hello, Stampers!

After last week's struggles with the Big Shot and our Embellished Ornaments Framelits, I went back to the drawing board.  I suspected that my warped cutting plates might be the problem and they were!!   I switched to my nice and flat cutting plates that were usually reserved for embossing folders and...success!! So here is the recipe that works really well for framelits and the Big Shot:

  • Magnetic Platform
  • Plastic Cutting Plate
  • Used Dryer Sheet
  • Cardstock
  • Parchment Paper
  • Plastic Cutting Plate
  • Fire Away!!

For this cheery Christmas card, I used the outline of the ornament framelit before embossing the front of the card with the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder.  I added a 3 3/4"x 5" sheet of Whisper White paper to the inside of the card. 

I used Gold Foil 12x12 paper for the ornament and attached it to the blue cutout left from the front of the card.  I also added a Gold Glimmer Paper ornament top, though it's hard to see in the picture.

I used snail glue on the back of the ornament and pushed it through the opening in the front of the card base to attach it to the inside of the card.

I then attached a quick banner using a sentiment from the "To You and Yours" stamp set from the holiday catalog. I attached a Basic Gold Button that I'd threaded with the new (love it!) Gold cording that is also available in silver and a bow made with the new Glitter Ribbon.  Voila!

Below you'll find a list of the items I used for this card.  

Happy Stamping!

Embellished Ornaments and Mistletoe Designer Series Paper Cards Are This Weeks Featured Cards!

Hi, Stampers!

Here are a couple of clean and pretty cards!  Such simplicity!  Just a Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Mossy Meadow color palette and some fun, framed layers!  I just love the Versatile Christmas stamp set with lovely sentiments for inside and out!  (140392)  9 stamps!  You can't beat it!  Bling, always!  A Basic Rhinestone (119246) and a Home for Christmas Enamel Dot (140536) are just the right touches.




Card #2 is this fun beauty using the Embellished Ornaments Bundle ((139759), crisp Whisper White Cardstock and Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad for this elegant pee-a-boo card. (Hard to tell in the picture but the ornament is actually on the inside of the card and the front is cut out using a coordinating framelit!  Couldn't resist the Red Foil Sheets (139607) for the ornament.  I used the Gold Foil Sheets for the hanger.(132622).  Finishing touches are the Organza Ribbon (always a favorite) (114319) and just a touch of the Gold Metallic Thread (138401).  Last and definitely not least (but also hard to see in the picture), I used the new Softly Falling Embossing Folder(139672) on the front of the card after stamping the sentiment.




I hope you find some inspiration in these two original projects!

Happy Stampin'!!

Hello, Stampers!

I hope this week again finds you happy, healthy and enjoying many creative pursuits! 

Whew!  Nate and I returned around midnight, Sunday evening, from our trip to Newport Beach, California.  Stampin' Up treated us like royalty! There was lots of relaxation and "explore on your own" time that we enjoyed so much!  We met great stampin' gals and their spouses, enjoyed Laguna Beach and Balboa Island and enjoyed several outstanding meals.  The roses were still in bloom and I LOVED all of the succulents thriving!  (A large fountain for my succulent collection is in our future!  Just not as large as the one in the picture.  And of course there was the lovely beach!

Now it's time to stamp!!!!

The cards of the week!!
