Hearts Come Home

Hi Everyone,

So my favorite Christmas Carol is Joy to the World and anytime I find it on a stamp set I just need to get it.  In the Holiday Catalog there is a fantastic set called Hearts Come Home and one of the stamps says Joy to the World so of course it was one of the first sets I bought.  Its an amazing set with a matching framelit set.  I just have so many ideas running through my mind with this set and started with one below.  I die cut the 3 rows of houses in Whisper White and then used a Wink of Stella pen as a blender pen for the trees and the roof tops to make it glisten like snow.  This bundle is just wonderful and I hope you enjoy my card.

Coffee Cafe

Hi Everyone,

I'm back today with another coffee cup card.  It's a bit funny because I don't drink coffee or even tea or hot chocolate, but I just love this bundle.  I also love the smell of coffee but really just can't get it down.  For this sample I used some of the great Coffee Break DSP.  I love the Soft Sky with the Soft Suede, they look really pretty together.  Soft Suede is one of those colors that flew under my radar for so long and now I just love it.  It's a great color to have on hand and it will go great with all of the metallics that are in style for the upcoming season.

Merry Cafe

Hi Everyone!

I know I'm in the minority here but summer is my least favorite season.  I love that the kids have no school but other than that if I'm not sitting at the beach then I'm just uncomfortable.  So I'm already getting excited for Fall and Winter and the Holiday Catalog is helping me along with that!  

This Merry Cafe set coordinates with the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies in the Annual Catalog.  The Merry Cafe set brings all kinds of new possibilities to the Coffee Cafe set.   It extends to Halloween, Fall, Christmas, New Year's and even Valentine's Day.  The stamps are so adorable you can use them on many many other projects. Hope you enjoy!

Painted Harvest

Hi Everyone,

One of the wonderful perks of being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator is the opportunity to purchase items before they are available to our customers.  In this case we can preorder out of the Holiday Catalog a full month ahead of its launch.  So while I should be cutting paper for my upcoming class on Friday... I decided to ink up one of the new Stamp Sets that UPS delivered today. 

Painted Harvest is a fabulous 2 step stamp set.  While the matching Painted Autumn is mostly designed for Fall use, the stamp set can really be used year round.  For this sample I stamped the bigger part of the flower in Cajun Craze and then came in with Cherry Cobbler for the smaller part.  This set is really beautiful and I just love the sentiments in it as well.

Tranquil Tulips

Hi Everyone,

While the Hostess Sets in the Annual Catalog are always great I think that this year they are exceptional.  The Tranquil Tulip set is photpolymer and has 22 stamps in it.  It available for only $10 but only if you host a workshop or class or have an individual order of $150 or more. 

For this card I wanted a little bit of a vintage look so almost everything is sponged with crumb cake.  The whitish background is one of the papers from the Wood Textures DSP Stack.  This paper stack is just fabulous!  I've used so much of it already I think I need to order another one and I just know its going to fit into so many Christmas projects too. There are just so many different wood textures in the stack.  Hope you enjoy it!
