Free as a Bird Friendship Card

Instead of using a lot of cardstock to make this card, I have used a card base and covered it with some of the beautiful poppies.  I used a smaller piece for the front of the card and cut some more of the beautiful paper.  I stamped the inside with the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamps.  It says “Your friendship means the world to me”.  It sure does. On the outside I stamped “The World Needs More of You”.  I hope she will treasure the sentiment as much as the card.

Bonanza Buddies Card

Here is a card I designed for you today. Have you seen the cute Birthday Bonanza Suite on page 33 of our new Mini Catalog?  I think this suite is the cutest in the whole catalog.  It has adorable Designer Paper and a bundle set with stamps and matching dies to cut them out.  You can also cut out balloons, banners and it also has cute tiny pom poms for the birthday hats.

Thoughtful Blooms Card

I made you a card with the Sale-a-Bration thoughtful Bloom stamps and the matching Small Bloom Punch.  After stamping the card with the Thoughtful Blooms stamps,  I punched out the same colored flowers using the Coordinating  Pleased as Punch paper and the matching Small Bloom punch.  It brought this card to life and was quick and easy to make.

Poppy Moments Card

I hope the card I chose to create for you, brings a smile and has you looking forward to all the new flowers that Spring will give us. 
I have used the Poppy Moments Dies on page 27 in our new Mimi catalog.  You can use these awesome dies to create all different color flowers and leaves to build your own beautiful poppy. Since poppies come in so many colors, there is no end to the possibilities.

I also used the Band Together stamp set for my Sentiment on the card.  I love the fonts in this set and the sentiments.  You can find it in the annual catalog on page 121.  It also coordinates with matching Detailed Bands dies on page 192.

February Class in the Mail

I have been busy creating classes for these new products. My classes are in the Mail, so you can create in the convenience of your home.  With purchase of a class, you will receive a kit with cardstock, embellishments and a pdf with a supply list and instructions on how to complete the projects.  You will also get a private link to my videos.  It’s like having a private class with me.  You can start and stop them as you wish, so you can stamp at your own speed. 
Please note the deadlines for the classes. I will need time to order your supplies and cut your kits and mail them out to you. 
Below are two classes I am offering for January.

Heartfelt Valentine Pizza Box

I have another Sneak Peek from our new Mini catalog that starts this Friday, January 3rd. The new Heartfelt Bundle comes with amazing stamps and two matching heart punches. One punch is plain and the other is scalloped edged. The Designer paper is beautiful too. I used a metallic piece on the top of the box. There are several heart sheets that match up nicely with the punches, so it makes designing your cards and projects real easy. Watch and see how fast this box comes together.

Everything Festive & Sneak peak Valentine Card

I have a cute Valentine card using our current Everything Festive stamps.  You know how much I have loved this set.  Well if you haven’t added it to your stash yet, you can still get it till the end of the year.  This Seasonal set has covered Halloween, Christmas, New Year and now Valentine’s Day.  I slipped in a sneak peek of some new products coming in our Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalogs that will start January 3rd. 

Notice the cute Bee paper?  It’s called Golden Honey Specialty Designer Paper and it is really pretty.  It has gold metallic prints along with back and white. You can color it or leave it as is and it really makes a pretty background for a card. The best part is you can earn this pack FREE with a $50- order.   When I saw the saying in Everything Festive,was Be My Valentine, I thought this would be a cute pun.

I also added a bee.  The name of the Bee set is Honey Bee and it comes with matching Detailed Bee Dies.  The dies even have a honeycomb and bee hive to match the stamps.  No fussy cutting needed. There is a Bundle price offered on the Honey Bee Bundle to save you 10%. 

I stamped the saying and popped it up on our new Heart shaped doilies.  There is so much more to the Suite.  I am sure you will want it all, like I did.  The new red satin ribbon ties bows so easy. 

I will be making more cards and projects with our new products.  I am so excited to finally show some of them to you.  I have had them for a few weeks.  Perks of being a Demonstrator. 

If you have not received catalogs from me, there is still time to place an order and I will be happy to mail you our new Mini and Sale-a-Bration catalogs.  Please make sure to use my current Host Code.  I ask if you are a Demonstrator, not to request one, since you will receive yours directly from Stampin’ Up!
