Beauty and the Beast

When I went to On Stage last week I was so excited to see these Beauty and the Beast cards.  I was thinking that it was really cool that Stampin' Up! and Disney collaborated with stamps.  WRONG.  Look closely and you'll see that these cards are punch art.  Some people are so talented and I wish I had written down the name of the person who did these cards.  And I'll probably never make any like these because I don't think I have the patience to figure them out.  But I think they're beautiful.

Sale A Bration is ending.

In just a little less than two weeks Sale A Bration will be all over.  Today Stampin' Up! added some new items to the free things that you can get with a $50.00 order.  So if there's something that you want it's time to get those orders in.  And just so you know some of the Sale A Bration items are already gone.  The tin for cards and the glimmer paper are all gone.  I'm so glad I got mine early. 
And just a reminder that this Thurs is regular card class.  Come and have some fun.

Celebrate Easter

Way back at the beginning of the year I talked about doing some home décor classes.  You can see how speedy I am.  But here goes.  This Easter collage is beautiful and if you want one then come to a home décor class on March 20th. I'll have everything ready for you except the frame.  You'll need a 12 X 12 frame for this.  The cost for this class is only $15.00 so let me know if you're coming.  We'll be using the new glimmer paper out of the Sale A Bration flyer.  I'm really hoping that we'll see lots of new glimmer paper in the next big catalog that comes out in June.

Fairy Celebration

Have you ever fallen in love with a stamp set when you saw it in the catalog?  And then when you get it you draw a complete blank about what you're going to do with it?  I was that way with Fairy Celebration.  I love fairy's and so this set was one of the first one's that I got out of the new catalog last June.  And I finally got around to using it this week.  I needed a birthday card for a little girl and this seemed to fill the bill.  I think one of the reason's I've been hesitating to use it is because there's a lot of color that needs to be added.  On this card I used the new watercolor pencils.  Can I say that I love, love, love the watercolor pencils.  Once the image is colored it is so easy to blend it with a blender pen or an aqua painter.  I think it turned out pretty good even if I do say so myself.  Now I just need to figure out why my camera doesn't do better.

Sale A Bration # 2

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything.  I've got to get into the groove. 
Stampin' Up! has released a second set of Sale A Bration items.  These are the free things that you can get with a $50.00 order. 
This first one is called "Reverse Words"

And here is some beautiful glimmer paper.  I love this and hope that there's lots more in the next big catalog.

And this last set is called "Make A Medallion"  I've seen some really cute cards done with this set but I don't have it yet.
Sale A Bration runs until the end of March so time is running out if you want any of these things.

More card class

Valentines Day is coming so here's a couple of cards that I've made.  The first one is from my last card class.  And you'll notice that the envelope is decorated and the inside of the card.
The above card is using some of the DSP out of the Occasions catalog called Sending Love.  The border beside the paper is made with a free stamp set out of Sale A Bration called Delicate Details and the greeting is an old one called Bloomin Love.  And by old I don't mean retired.  It's been around a couple of years and it's still one of my favorites.  It's a beautiful set.
And on this card I used the Bloomin Love greeting again with an arrow out of the Jan. Paper Pumpkin kit and a heart cut out of the Sending Love DSP.  I need to get busy and made a bunch more valentines because it's only 8 more days until Valentine's Day.  Are you ready?
