~ Happy New Year ~

One of my favorite Stampin' Up! designer papers is the Glimmer sheets...they are available in: silver, champagne and red. This card was created for a Creative Crew Challenge...CCREW0114CF. I just had to share this little pretty with you today in honor of the New Year Celebration tonight! Don't you just love a little black dress with sparkly bits all over!

Hope that you all had a wonderful Blessed Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Stampin' Hugs...

~ Poinsettia WOW! ~

Hi Stampers!

Today's share is my first Christmas card of the season, and believe me, if you see it in person, you would be overwhelmingly WOWED by it. It is a  case (copy and share everything) of a beautiful card that I saw created by Deb Valder for the Stampin' Up! Founders's Circle retreat.

~ The poinsettia was stamped with black stazon ink onto a  4x4 window sheet.

~ You need to pool about a one and one half inch spot of crystal effects onto a piece of waxed paper   and mix in 2 drops of cherry cobbler re-inker and then paint onto the poinsettia.

~ You will also need to use a small amount of crystal effects and put one drop of crushed curry into that and paint the berries in the center

~ Next, you sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds onto the wet and let it dry for a good hour. Cut out the flower and then adhere it to the whisper white card stock using some of the crystal effects as an adhesive.

Last week I demonstrated this lovely card at my monthly class.  Everyone was very pleased at having created such an elegant and spectacular little masterpiece!


Stamps: Joyful Christmas
Paper: whisper white, basic black, window sheets p. 156 IBC
Ink: stazon black, cherry cobbler, crushed curry
Misc: crystal effects, dazzling diamonds

~ Princesses Birthday ~

This is the time of year where I get to celebrate the birthdays of my two very sweet grandaughters, Keira and Kaely.  They are currently enrolled in dance classes and just love the entire Princess theme, which appropriately enough was the focus of their birthday party this year!

Currently, they are the delight and love of my life, besides my dear husband, of course. They just know how to melt my heart instantly.  I LOVE being a grandma, especially to two little princesses!

So, today I am sharing a little of what my heart wanted to do for them for their birthdays, creating two very unique cards inspired by Valerie Perlin a French Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
And to add a little girliness to the festivities, I know how much they love purses and all the cutesy things that go into them...therefore I utilized the Stampin' Up! purse die to make a variety of purses filled with M&M's.  And, since there were a couple of boys, I could not neglect them, so I made little fishing tackle bags for them, inspired by a fellow demonstrator Frederica Chaffanjon.

Well, that and so much more has been a happening lately in my Stampin Studio...what has been going on in yours? Please share...inquiring minds want to know...LOL!

Happy Stampin'!
