Quilted Christmas

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  As soon as I saw this set I knew I needed it!  Now, how long did it take for me to put it to good use?  Don't ask, lol!

But, I whipped up this pretty card a few weeks ago and I kind of LOVE it!  The color combo is to die for, I think!  Real read, old olive, bermuda bay, pool party, and emerald envy work perfectly together!  The stamp is super easy to stamp since it's photopolymer!

I love the bright colors against the white!  And I turned my embossed panel over.  I didn't like the way it looked right side up ;-)

(I'm falling asleep on the couch as I write this so I'll do the supply list later lol!)

Happy stamping!

Add basic black to the list, I forgot ;-)

Merry Little Labels Tags - Stampin' Up Global Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hi stampers!  It's time for another awesome Artisan blog hop!  I cannot believe our year is almost up and they have announced the 2018 team (big congrats to all of you by the way, SO happy to see all your names at OnStage and I can't wait to see what you create) already!  WHERE did this year go?  I still can't believe I'm here and it's been such an honor to be a part of this amazing group.  It was also great to meet some of them (or see them again) last week in SLC.  How did we not get a group photo???

Anyway, onto the project at hand and enough of my emotional blathering :-)  We focused on the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set this time around.  It's such a cute little set!  My favorite stamp is the top right, I just think it's so cute!

I am forever scrambling to make some tags while I'm scrambling at the last minute to wrap gifts...are we seeing a pattern here? :-)  So, I thought for this hop, I'd get a head start and make some cute tags!

We have so many things to use on tags and I wanted to show you the variety you could get with both the coordinating Everyday Label Punch as well as other non-holiday items!

My no peeking tag uses the Celebration Thinlits, you know, the ones with the cute cake?  The Tag and tag overlay in that set of dies is perfect for any occasion!  And as a bonus, the punched shape fits perfectly on it!  I kept this one super simple with just a few Enamel Shapes so you can quickly make this tag if you're always in a hurry like me!

The special delivery tag uses the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Do you have that punch?  I forget about it sometimes but it's so great.  You just cut your paper to 2 inches wide and can make a tag of any length!  I switched out the label punch for oval framelits here and added a doily and some burlap for my finishing touches.  Again, a super simple but super cute tag!

For my final tag, I combined some shapes, including the punch.  I think it adds a lot of visual interest to have three shapes and then the Boxwood Embellishment is perfect here!  I added some Clear Faceted Gems to tie in the "sparkles" from the DSP on my background and then a little 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon for some more shine!  My sentiment is heat embossed with white powder.

These tags came together super fast and are going to look great on my gifts this year!  I encourage you to make some of your own with this set!  It was so fun!  And maybe you won't be scrambling like I usually am ;-)

Now, head on over the the Netherlands and see what Miriam has in store for you, you're going to LOVE it!

My ONE Swap

Hi stampers!  I thought I'd show you the ONE swap I made for OnStage.  I don't really swap for a number of reasons (I don't need them, I don't like carrying them around, I don't like stressing about making them...the list goes on ha).  But, one of my favorite stampers and people asked if I'd have a card for him and I couldn't say no!

Brian is just the best so I made him this card that pretty much sums up how I feel about my friend (or all of my friends)!  And he's rocking his business to boot!

My diamond is really sparkly in real life with Wink of Stella.  I used a couple of thin layers so the ink didn't run after I colored it with my Blends (pool party).

I hope Brian loved it and I hope you do too!

Happy stamping!

Introducing the Stamparatus!

Hi stampers!  I'll have exciting OnStage stuff to share soon and sneak peek at the end of this post BUT I wanted to let you in on the big news of of the Stamparatus!  It's our new stamp placement tool and I'm pretty excited!  So excited that I made two posts in one day ;-)

Watch this video for more information. Carrie does a better job explaining it than I can :-)  But basically, this is a way more awesome version of the Stamp A Majig.  It will be great for when your PP stamps are being a pain and maybe not inking super well, too!  It has a lot of cool features so make sure to watch!

You can preorder yours on Thursday, the 15th.  This is going to work a little different than normal and what will happen is you will reserve yours with a credit card and then you won't be charged until they are ready to ship which should be around February 1.  This way, they know how many they need and we can avoid back orders!  The price is $49 and you can earn SAB rewards with your order.  You''ll only need to go back in and add something to your order (if you chose, to make the $50 for SAB) then finalize it and it will shipped to you!  If you have questions, let me know!  I did a Facebook live video to try to explain it so you can always hop over there to watch as well.  And don't worry if you can't order just yet, there will be two more windows in December and January where you can reserve yours as well.

Now, make sure to let me know if you need an Occasions and SAB catalog as well!  I'll be getting those out soon!

I was honored to be a display stamper for the event last week and I'll be sharing my projects soon!  I will continue to focus on Christmas projects and other current items as well though!  I'll leave you with a sneak peek of me and my board ;-)  I'll post specific details later, I promise!

It's stupid exciting every time I get to do this!  And there was so much good stuff from the other stampers! <3 p="">
Again, don't hesitate to ask questions if you have them!

Happy stamping!

Dino Birthday

Hi stampers!  I'm home from OnStage but I can't share JUST quite yet!  I can at 2pm today but I'm writing this while I'm waiting for my ride to the airport and who knows how busy today will be once I'm home...I actually do know and the answer is very :-)

The picture is dark, sorry!  I was whipping this up the night before I left so I had to use the kitchen to get a halfway decent picture!  Ian had a birthday party to attend on Saturday so I made this up for his friend!  Thanks to the talented Jennifer for the inspiration!  You can check out her card there!

I colored him with my Blends markers! Quick and easy card!

Now for all the unpacking...and hopefully sharing after 2 ;-)

I will say, I'm going to attempt to focus on Christmas for the rest of the season so I'll just do a few sneak peeks here and there.

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 125

Hi stampers!  Greetings from the center of the Stampin' Universe, Salt Lake City!  We're a day into OnStage and I have so many exciting things to share when I can.  For now, how about a Fab Friday Challenge!?!?

This is a hard sketch for me, it's a very un-Mindy (which really, is why I love when challenges) one BUT, I knew exactly what I was going to do!  Maybe it's too predictable, I dunno, but I love it!

See, it's a present!  Simple and super cute!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along!
