Stampin’ Up! Valentine Defined February CD Calendar for January Card Crew Class

 

Occasions Mini Catalog available Jan. 4 - April 30, 2011 The 2011 Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog was released last week.  Have you seen it yet?  A Kansas customer called to place her ordering stating it is the best mini catalog ever and she loved nearly everything!   I must agree, it is fabulous.


View the 2011 Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog online now!


The Occasions Mini Catalog has so much more than Valentine's Day stamp sets and accessories, such as Designer Series Paper and rub-ons, but with Valentine's Day approaching, I am using one of the stamp sets, Valentine Defined,  in my January Card Crew class.


Valentine_Defined_Feb_CD_Calendar

 

Don't you just love the sweet, little hearts at the top of each stem?  I particularly like my February calendar because it includes hearts for Valentine's Day but isn't over-the-top for those taking my class without a Valentine. 

 

Valentine Defined is available only for a short period of time!  Order the Valentine Defined stamp set now on my website for online ordering of Stampin' Up! products any time day or night – even in your pajamas!

Stampin’ Up! 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog: Create a Cupcake and Build a Cupcake Video Tutorial

 

Can a project using a stamp set persuade you into purchasing the set?  Or, do you not even look at the art work and see all kinds of possibilities with a stamp set?

 

I have seen projects with stamp sets I thought I would never purchase.  And then purchased the stamp set.   That sure isn't the case with the Stampin' Up! Create a Cupcake stamp set from the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog.  I love punches and love stamp sets that coordinate with them.  Punches make papercrafting so much more fun and easy.

 

But, I did particularly like one of the card samples in the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog.  In my video demonstration with Create a Cupcake stamp set and Build a Cupcake Punch, you will see a card very similar.  Watch my video demonstration and leave a comment if you, too, like the card.

Baby Wipe Technique with Stampin’ Up! Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set

 

Have you tried to Baby Wipe Technique?  It is fun to make your own multicolored stamp pad with a baby wipe and Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Refills for a new look.  Click on the link to watch I video I made demonstrating the Baby Wipe Technique with a different card.

Pocket_Silhouettes

 

The pretty stamp used to stamp my card is from the Stampin' Up! Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.  It is stamped on a Very Vanilla die-cut card stock oval made from the Sizzix Ovals Originals Die and the Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

 

The stamped Very Vanilla oval is layered on a Always Artichoke die-cut card stock oval also made from the Sizzix Ovals Originals Die.

 

The Elegant Eggplant card stock was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Sizzix Embossing Folder in the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I also used my Oval Sizzix Embossing Folder Chipboard Template to emboss everywhere on the card stock except in the center.  Leaving the center are un-embossed allows me to add layers quickly. 

 

My Oval Sizzix Embossing Folder Chipboard Template was designed by me to coordinate beautifully with the Sizzix Ovals Originals Die.   As of now, I have seven different Embossing Folder Chipboard Templates and have made them available for purchase here.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me  if you have any questions.

Customer Christmas Card Creation! Sizzix Snowflake Originals Die Card by Debby Russell

 

Another pretty Christmas card! Debby Russell die-cut her snowflake with the Sizzix Snowflake #2 Originals Die and Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The snowflake is so big it nearly fills the card. 

 

As I look at this card created by Debby Russell, I am thinking with a change of greeting, you will have a great winter card too.  Doesn't everyone have someone they need a January birthday card for?

 Debby's extra touch is the Clear Rhinestone Brad in the center of her large, die-cut snowflake.  The sparkle makes it special.
