Currently I am working on a swap for my weSTAMP meeting which is next Tuesday at my dear friend and upline's home, Lorri Heilling...so stay tuned.
Earlier this year when I attended the Stampin' Up! Convention, I obtained a prototype of this little creation via a 3-D swap. It holds a little Dum Dum lolly in the middle and serves as the stem for the flower.
The flower part is created using the Stampin' Up! Sizzix Originals Blossom Party die. These would make really cute little "Treats" for the little ghosts, ghoblins and ghouls that greet us on our doorsteps on All Hallows Eve.
At one of the earlier gatherings of the Dazzling Divas, everyone participated in a shoebox swap and my dear friend Barbara chose this little darling for us to play with! Isn't she cute!
When my class saw this little pretty, they asked to make it at our next event and here it is with a few little alterations to Barbara's original. Don't you just LOVE the little skirt made with Stampin' Up!'s 1/2" Raven Trim Laced item # 120988? It can be found in our current Holiday Mini Catalog.
Hope that you are enjoying the cooler temps and Fall weather where you live.
Kindness comes in many forms but always from the heart. This sentiment is one of four from a Stampin' Up! set that I am very fond of, Heart from the Heart item # 111644 from the SU Idea Book & Catalog 2010-2011.
This card was inspired by Diana Gibbs' September to Remember event where there were several cards using the very items that I incorporated into this easel card.
I brought a few of these little lovlies to the Dazzling Divas monthly downline meeting for our swap.
This is such a pretty stamp set for Fall or Thanksgiving card making. While my DH and I were away in California on vacation at the end of September, I brought this set with me to make my swaps for my
weSTAMP monthly meeting. Funny thing though, I have this in the clear mount style and I forgot to bring along a block...no problem though...I stamped anyway! LOL
It was inspired by a card very similar but I seem to have misplaced all of that information, so if anyone knows the origin, please let me know and I will most certainly give full credit where it is due.
