Two of these Build a Bear Merry Christmas cards were made for my dear, little, sweet granddaughters, Keira & Kaely. I totally enjoyed playing with my new Build a Bear Stampin' Up! dies to dress these two little bears, much like my dear dil dresses "the girls".
Tonight I will be spending Christmas Eve with my son, dil, the girls and my dil's family, so I will get to hug and kiss and squeeze the girls to my heart's content!
Merry Christmas...I hope that you all have a safe, happy and very Blessed one!
Just thought that I would share some Merry Christmas Cheer today by showing you a Gift Card Holder that I made for my son and dil. I totally cased it from one that I made at our weSTAMP Christmas Party, inspired by my friend Barbara Welch.
At the Stampin' Up! Convention this past August 2009, Shelli Gardner premiered this wonderful idea of cutting fabric using the Extended pad SU Flower Folds die #115970.
This past week my gracious upline Lorri Heilling had a get-together so that whomever attended could finish up some of their projects and one that I have been wanting to try my hand at was making these lovely brooches. Lorri let me borrow her die and I cut up some pretty material in reds and blacks and sheers and the above creation is what transpired!
Needless to say, now I had to order one of these dies for myself and I look forward to making these in various colors for gifts and possibly to sell.
I am going to wear this today when I meet my dear stamping buddy Anne for lunch in a little while.
Isn't this beautiful! I received it at our weSTAMP Christmas Party and it was made by my wonderful upline and mentor, Lorri Heilling! How about the gorgeous brooch? My dear friend Barbara Welch made this for me. They match too!
You will just have to see me in action someday using my new tote and showing off the matching floral brooch...maybe at our next Paradise Valley/North Phoenix Saturday Morning Stamp Cafe on Saturday, January 16th in my home 10:00am 0 12:00 noon.
I am so excited!! Stampin Up has taken the best of both worlds to create these clear mount stamps. They are the same excellent quality rubber stamps they have always had but now the blocks are clear so you can see through them. I just got my first set and wasn't sure how I would like them but I have to tell you that they are FABULOUS! So easy to use and you can see exactly where you are stamping. These will be available to customers on Jan 5th!
Over the past few years, there has been enormous demand from demonstrators and customers alike for a line of repositionable clear-mount rubber stamps. Well, you asked for it, and now you have it! Starting with stamps in the NEW 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure, Stampin' Up! now offers our exclusive stamp art in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount option.
Our new clear-mount rubber stamps are the result of extensive research with the intent to maintain the very best image quality in the stamping industry, while at the same time offering the ease-of-use and storability inherent in repositionable clear-mount rubber stamps.
Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp Features
* Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle. * Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel. * Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist. * Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not. * Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning. * Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets. * Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy.
Hope that you are enjoying your Christmas festivities!
The above items were all tucked neatly into the Gift Box (top photo), for a present exchange, that I prepared for my very first weSTAMP Christmas Party. I totally enjoyed putting this project together!
