Stampin’ Up

Some of my favorite swaps I received



I received many awesome swaps at the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention and here are some of my favorites.  The first card is made by my good friend and downline, Jenny Waszak.  Her beautiful card is made using Watercolor Wings.  Aren’t those butterflies gorgeous!



Dreamia Toloso made this very cute Christmas card with Wondrous Wreath and the Brick Wall embossing folder.  It’s never too soon to start making Christmas cards!



Watercolor Words is quickly becoming one of my favorite sets.  This clean and simple card was made by Debi Calandrelle.  She even colored the Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of the flowers.

I can’t wait to show you more swap cards and more previews from the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog!




Cozy Christmas tag


I made this cute Christmas tag at the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention. The stamp set, Cozy Christmas, will be available September 1, 2015.  The ribbon, Very Vanilla 1-1/4″ Subltle Stripes Satin Ribbon, and Home for Christmas Designer Buttons are both on page 9 of the new 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.


Here’s a picture of the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  You can see where I chose a Santa to cut out for my tag.  This paper is adorable!

It’s the perfect time to get started on your Christmas cards and tags!



Your Presents-Birthday



Here is another make and take from the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention.  The card shows how the stamp set, “Your Presents” is so versatile.  It looks like a totally different set using it as a birthday card.  Another thing I really liked about making this card was doing the Kissing Technique to make the plaid present.  I’ll make a video to show you this fun and easy technique.




I’m also happy that Stampin’ Up brought back Silver and Gold Cording Trim in the new 2015 Holiday catalog.  Customers can  order from this catalog beginning September 1!
