Window Shopping Wood-Mount Stamp Set
All the patterns and words you've been thinking, but didn't have a stamp to express. They're truly craftacular ... and we don't use that word very often, so you know we really mean it this time.
* Quantity: 10 rubber stamps
* Wood blocks included
Window Box Thinlits Dies
Create die-cut gift boxes and party favors in seconds with Thinlits dies and the Big Shot.
* 9 dies
* Largest image: 6" x 5-9/16" (15.2 x 14.1 cm)
* Use with Big Shot
* Use Precision Base Plate with detailed images
One of my favorite pieces is this pretty framelit that not only makes a lovely window in the box, but also one of my favorite cards.  This is a perfect project for my Stamp Club on Monday!

I wanted to color this in precisely, but was struggling how to achieve this neatly….then I thought Vellum!!!  So I cut my “window”out from Whisper White and stuck a square of Vellum Cardstock on the back.  Then colored in on the back of the vellum with our Many Marvelous Markers…and marvelous they are!!  Love them!!! 
Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight Markers


Add a square of Whisper White on the back of the Vellum Cardstock to keep the colors bright and vivid! Complete your card with layers, ribbons and pearls and you have a lovely card for any occasion!!
Don’t forget…if you order this bundle now…you will be able to choose a FREE product from our awesome Saleabration!!!  Check it out here!!
And this is only the beginning…stay tuned for more Window Shopping creations!!  Too fun!

until next time…..
Take care and Happy Stamping!!

Cable Knit “Darlingness” …Is that a word???

Well it is now when you see my project for today!!!
So first let me give you a bit of background for today's creation.... back at my December Stamp a Stack, we made this Pinterest inspired Snow Hat gift card holder using the Cable Knit Folder found in the Stampin’ Up!  Holiday Catalog.  So cute….everyone loved it!!  This led to my inspiration for today's project!!

Nice gift...right???
Well in January…..we had good news when we found out the Cable Knit Textured Folder was being carried over from the Holiday Catalog and we can continue ordering it!!  Yeah!

Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Price: $10.00
It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design.
Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders take embossing to the next level, with deeper, more detailed impressions than standard embossing folders—great for card fronts and accents.
* 1 folder
* 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm)
* Use with Big Shot
So back to my project for today…..recently I needed a Baby Shower Gift Card holder….so I thought BABY HAT!!!  Oh my gosh……Isn't this just the sweetest thing!!  Notice the pretty Metallic Ribbon from our Sale-a-Bration Catalog.    And combined with two of my favorite stamp sets…..Flower Shop Stamp Set and BYOP Stamp Set ….so cute!!

Just imagine all the colors you could use…Soft Sky, So Saffron, Mint Macaron….the possibilities are endless!  Now don't you agree my blog title  “ Cable Knit Darlingness” is appropriate??? Red heart

And finally…this is our day today in Wisconsin…..pretty…..

Do you like to color??

If your answer is yes…..we have an awesome new product for you!!  Inside the Lines is another FREE product highlighted in our Sale a Bration Catalog coming January 4th. This product will be FREE with a $50 merchandise order.  And just like the adult coloring books which are all the rage right now….you can color as much or as little as you want…and because it is 12x12 designer Paper…you can now use it on a card or any other special creation. 

Inside the Lines

There are 4 different designs, 3 sheets of each pattern.  Love it!!!  You will see a lot of this from me in the coming months!!  Here is another project from Diva Day!!
This DSP is very user friendly….you can use our Many Marvelous Markers…which I did here direct to paper…..or watercolor with ink pads, markers or our Brand New Water Color Pencils!!  The possibilities are endless!!
  Also notice the other new products on this card……The saying comes from a new stamp set in the Upcoming Occasions Catalog called All Things Thanks.  This stamp set was given to us at the last Stampin Up! Onstage event this past November.  Just another perk to being a Stampin Up! demonstrator!!!
And finally one of my absolute favorite FREE products from Sale a Bration….is the 3/8” Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack…there is just a wisp on  this card…but you will love this ribbon when you see it!!  It is gorgeous!!
