The binder and cards can be easily adapted to any designer series paper and stamp set so it is great for classes or a stamp camp, and if you are not a demonstrator, just to make and give as a gift.

Mocha Morning I Do!

With Summer around the corner, so come the wedding processions. Here is a lovely card using the Mocha Morning Specialty DSP again. As you can see from all my cards posted this past week this DSP is great for any occasion.  To give this card some extra shine, I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. I also sponged Very Vanilla Craft Ink onto the square behind the heart to give it an aged feeling and embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Here is a closeup.

Here are some more pics of the ladies from the North Carolina Retreat too!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Word Play; Cardstock: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla; DSP:  Mocha Morning Specialty; Ink:  Soft Suede and Very Vanilla Craft Ink; Accessories:  Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Heart Punch, Big Shot, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sponge Dauber, Dimensionals, Stampin’ Sponges, and Itty Bitty Backgrounds (retired).

Thanks ladies for such a great time in North Carolina!

Mocha Morning Graduate

Spring is in the air, but the end of the school year will be here before you know it. So here is a little Mocha Morning for your graduate!  The wording on this card is from Word Play and is one of my favorite stamps from the set and very versatile – works for graduation, new job or retirement.  And the Early Espresso ribbon and the mini library clip definitely are perfect embellishments for this card.  Get your Mocha Morning Specialty DSP before it’s gone!

Here’s another project using this great DSP from a class I took at the North Carolina Retreat. My friend Bonnie Henderson taught this beautiful Frame Class and I really loved making the flowers out of Mocha Morning Specialty DSP.   Check out the texture on the leaves – she showed us how to use the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make the veins on the leaf. So cool!

Supplies for Card: Stamp Set:  Word Play; Cardstock:  Textured Crumbcake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Whisper White; Ink:   Early Espresso; DSP: Mocha Morning Specialty; Accessories:  1/8″ Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Library Clip, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:  The Retirement List will be out on April 15th, please be sure to check out this list on my demonstrator website by clicking on the “shop now shopping cart” button at the top right sidebar of my blog – it will take you to my site.  These items will start to go quick so don’t delay if there are items you want from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.

Also the Clearance Rack has added over 50 new items. You won’t want to pass up these items either. Fabulous markdowns!

Mocha Morning Continues!

Here are some more projects using the Mocha Morning Speciality DSP. What’s so special about a specialty DSP you say? Well, usually there are one or two sheets that have something special about them like flocking, raised images, glitter, etc. Mocha Morning has two different sheets that have beatiful black flocking on them so I thought I would show you two cards that have this feature. Here’s a close up pic of the flocking and the little embossed butterfly. Another Mocha Morning card with that specialty flocking on it is this one with a favorite saying from the “Style Beautiful” stamp set. That wording says it all. These two cards are also easy and quick to make but pack a punch in the style arena.

Supplies: Card 1 – Stamp Set: Word Play; Cardstock: Crumb Cake Plain and Textured, Whisper White, and Basic Black; DSP: Mocha Morning Specialty; Ink: Basic Black; Accessories:  5/8″ Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Labels Collection Framelits Dies, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, and Basic Pearls. Card 2 – Stamp Set:  Style Beautiful; Cardstock:  Basic Black and Whisper White; Ink:  Basic Black; Accessories:  Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon.

Mocha Morning for Dad

Quick post before I head out the door to go grocery shopping! Stampin’ Up!’s Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper is great for making men’s cards too, like this one for Father’s Day. The colors are great – Soft Suede and Early Espresso, and this was one quick card too. To make this card especially manly, I pulled out my Big Shot and embossed the strip of Soft Suede CS behind the wording with  the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  See you tomorrow with another Mocha Morning DSP card!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Delightful Dozen; Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Soft Suede; Ink:  Early Espresso; DSP:  Mocha Morning Specialty; Accessories:  5/8″ Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Forever and Always

I recently attended a Tickled Pink Party held by one of my Sherindipity Stamper’s, Erika Clark. Erika is such a wonderful hostess and supplied us with great make & take projects and her yummy Ziti was to die for. She also had plenty of pink snacks on hand. Our swaps had to have pink incorporated somehow. Here is mine:

I will post the other attendees’ swaps and all the cute gifts we received from Erika on another day. You will definitely be impressed – everyone had such beautiful projects. But first let me tell you alittle about mine.  I made the wrap using Pretty in Pink CS and the measurements for the main piece are 4″x12″ with scorings at 3″, 7″ and 8″. The scoring at 3″ will be the front flap of your project and I embossed that flap using the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which gave it that cute little scallop edging. Punched a trim using Island Indigo CS and the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I adhered the trim to the back of the front flap and Sticky Stripped it down closing my wrap. I adhered a strip of the new Twitterpatted Designer Series Paper to the top and ran a length of the new Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon across it. Stamped my images using the Take it to Heart Stamp set. The same one I used on yesterday’s project. Hearts were punched out with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and the Heart Punch. Added some bling with the new 8 mm Large Pearl Basic Jewels and a Blushing Bride Designer Button from the Twitterpated collection. Forever and Always is from the new Loving Thoughts stamp set and I received the stamp set as part of my Leadership package.

 I filled my swaps with Rice Krispie heart treats that I made with my grandson, Andrew. We had fun making them, and as you can see he wanted to be completely hands on in the cooking process. We also cut out the centers and added one of the yummy gummy heart candies from yesterday’s project. Sorry I didn’t get a final pic, but we had to get them into the cello bags before they dried out. I used SU’s flat medium cello bags and they fit perfectly.

I can’t wait to cook in the kitchen with my other grandson, Owen, too but it will be alittle while yet.  Andrew will be 3 in March and I am so impressed with how smart he is already. Whenever we say goodbye to each other, we always say I love you and then we say Forever and Ever!  His sounds sorta like this: I love you Mimi! And then he says Foreva and eva! Melts my heart every time.

Love that kid and his smile!

Sorry about the sugar tasting Mommy! But we couldn’t resist.

He showed me some love in the pic with his cookie cutter! Isn’t he just adorable! I Heart him back. He actually even helped me with my swap applying dimensionals to the backs of the hearts.

On our way home from the party, I  took a pic in the town of St. Michaels – I found out the residents could purchase a heart for a $50 donation to a local charity and then they got to display their hearts on the telephone poles in town displaying their love to the world! What a great idea!

I also passed by a cute little candy store – do you think they may be wishing for snow on Valentine’s Day?

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Take it to Heart and Loving Thoughts; Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink, Island Indigo and Whisper White; DSP: Twitterpated;  Ink:  Blushing Bride; Marker:  Island Indigo; Accessories:  Big Shot, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Twitterpated Designer Buttons, Blushing Bridge 3/8″ Pleated Satin Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Scallop Trim Border and Heart Punches, Paper Snips, Basic Pearls and Large Pearl Basic Jewels, Mini Glue Dots, Linen Thread and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tea for Two!

Yes, Please! Isn’t this teacup from Stampin’ Up!’s new stamp set, “Tea Shoppe”, absolutely wonderful?  The pansies on the cup are so delicate and are one of my favorite flowers – as a young girl I remember my mom planting them every year in our garden. This card is a great way to invite a friend over for tea and cookies and a chat come Springtime.  Yes, I know we are just coming up on winter, but we can plan ahead, can’t we?  Make a couple of these cards, then set aside a few days in March to invite a friend over, each on their very own special day. We are all so busy and our calendars get filled so fast these days, why not send them out now so you can make sure everyone’s date on their calendar is available, including yours! Get some girl time in! There are two new products featured here, along with the Tea Shoppe stamp set:  the Framelits Dies – Labels Collection and Embosslits Die – Fashionable Hearts.

Asheville, NC Stamp/Scrap Retreat

I finally arrived at my Stamp/Scrap Retreat yesterday afternoon. I flew into the Greenville/ Spartansburg Airport in South Carolina and then rented a car to carry me and all my STUFF to the Ridgecrest Retreat Center in Asheville, NC. The drive to the retreat center was beautiful with all the changing foliage along the way. I managed to squeeze my clothing and all my supplies into two large suitcases and one small carry-on.  All arrived safely without incidence, except for a brief inspection of one of my suitcases by the TSA as indicated by this tag. They were probably wondering what all those scissors and blades were doing in there. LOL!  I have been having alot of fun meeting new friends, sharing ideas and attending classes.

I’ve included some of the projects I’ve been working on so far – holiday gift tags using the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper and a gift card that will be offered  in my Holiday Gift Card Stamp a Stack on December 8 and 15 from 6-10 p.m. Take one class or both. Cost is $20.00 for each class. This gift card holder is perfect for the men in your life. Very manly with the woodgrain paper from the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper pack along with the stately deer from the Winter Post stamp set. When open, the gift card sits in a pocket on the left and your word saying is on a small card to the right.

Will try to post again later tonight with more projects from my retreat. Thanks for checking in with me!

Holiday Horsin’ Around!

Isn’t this just the cutest little Hobby Horse ever!  I was inspired by Jackie Topa’s hobby horse on Stampin’ Connection, the stamper’s showcase on the demonstrator website.  The top of the horse is actually a holiday stocking stamped from Stampin’ Up!’s new Stitched Stockings stamp set and then punched out with the coordinating Stocking Builder Punch. I love it!  His mane is made from Early Espresso Baker’s Twine and the stick itself is a little red coffee stirrer that I covered in sticky strip and then dipped in Dazzling Diamonds glitter. How’s that for being creative?! I then wrapped the stick in Early Espresso 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon. And how about that Red Glimmer Paper!! Absolutely gorgeous!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Stitched Stockings and Four the Holidays; Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla; Ink:  Early Espresso; Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stocking Builder Punch, 1/8″ Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, Red Glimmer Paper and Red Coffee Stirrer.

Giving Thanks Tags

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I got really pumped this week and decorated my house for Autumn. It all started when I made a tag for my Open House make & takes.  I made it to fit on one of my grapevine pumpkins.  I then made a different style to go on my candle holders.  I used the Stampin’ Up! wood sheets for the bases of both projects. I used the Two Tags die with my Big Shot for the long tag and then I used the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch for the other tag.  I was actually surprised the punch worked on the wood sheets! Who knew!  I then used these great Autumn ink colors for the leaves on the tags:  Cajun Craze, Baha Breeze and Early Espresso. I gave the Baha Breeze background some texture with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder along with my Big Shot.  And that beautiful stamped saying “Give Thanks” is from the new Hand-Penned Holidays stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I will be using that set again for my Holiday Card Stamp A Stack this Thursday, September 22 from 6-10 p.m..  If you haven’t signed up there is still time. I’ve also added an additional class to make the same cards on Thursday, September 29, in case you can’t make the first.  I will be doing this for all of my Holiday Card Stamp A Stacks this season. It seems that everyone is so busy these days, you could all use a second option!

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Gently Falling, Hand-Penned Holidays (large tag) and Fabulous Phrases (small tag); Cardstock: Cajun Craze and Baha Breeze; Ink:  Early Espresso, Baha Breeze, and Cajun Craze; Marker:  Cajun Craze; Accessories:  Color Sprizter Tool, Early Espresso 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Crop-A-Dile, Basic Pearls, Big Shot,Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,  2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, and Sponge Daubers.

Holiday Goodies are in the House!

My Holiday Open House will be held on September 17 and 18 – two whole days for you to check out new products from the Holiday Mini Catalog!   Its from 10 am to 6 pm both days.  I’ll have a display of projects using new products such as this one shown here.  It’s from the stamp set “Snow Much Fun” and features that luscious Very Vanilla velvet ribbon and Spice Cake designer series paper and buttons. And click on the photo to enlarge the photo and check out how those Basic Pearls look like they are tiny glass balls suspended on the Christmas tree!   It’s not your typical Christmas card but I love the pearls, paper and buttons. If you are into the more traditional Christmas cards there are also other new designer series papers for that as well such as Frostwood Lodge and Holly Berry Bouquet.

You’ll also be able to sign up for product shares and my holiday classes I will be offering this fall.  There will be giveaways all weekend so you won’t want to miss out. Earn Sherindipity Dollars for any new catalog purchases you make at my Open House and use later towards all your holiday wish list items. Attend my Open House and find out all the details. I will also pick a mystery hostess from all purchases made during my Open House and that person will be able to choose free product from either new catalog.

Springtime Easter Blooms

I truly cannot wait for spring to arrive so here is a heaping spoonful of it times three with cards I created back in January using the new Easter Blooms stamp set.  For this first card I used the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper for the background.  I also used one of the stamps from the Clearly for You stamp set for the backing on my beveled window pane and finished off my image with a small Vanilla Rosette.

Springtime Vintage Easter Blooms

And that is the new Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon gathered across the middle of the card – so easy to do. How? Cut a length of ribbon 1-1/2 times the length of your card. Glue under the left side of the ribbon using a little monoadhesive. On the right side of your piece of ribbon start fraying the end and then grab one of the single strands from the center of your ribbon and start pulling slowly pushing the gathering towards the left side of your ribbon. Keep pulling until it is the length you need for your card. Set aside and then place a length of Sticky Strip across your card. Remove the pink backing and begin adhering your ribbon folding under the right side of the ribbon on the end to give a smooth finish on your card. I love making vintage cards!

Supplies:  Card 1 – Stamps:  Easter Blooms and Clearly for You; Cardstock:  Always Artichoke, Rose Red, and Very Vanilla; Ink:  Always Artichoke and Rose Red; Designer Series Paper:  Springtime Vintage; Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon;  Vanilla Rosettes, Beveled Window Panes, Punches:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pak, XL Scallop Oval, XL  2″x1-3/8″ Oval, Sticky Strip,  and Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Happy Easter!

The second card uses the new Textured Impressions Framed Tulip Embossing Folder. Love, love, love the way it frames out a card. So elegant!  The silhouette image of this little girl is so precious and easy to stamp. She is definitely all about the spring thing with her little basket of Easter eggs and bouguet of flowers skipping barefoot through the grass.
I once again used another stamp from the Clearly for You set (the small butterfly) to add a little something extra along with a few Basic Pearls.  Who wouldn’t want to receive a special card like this for Easter?
Supplies:  Card 2 – Stamps:  Easter Bloosm and Clearly for You; Cardstock:  Old Olive and Whisper White; Ink: Old Olive; Designer Series Paper:  Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack – So Saffron; Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Textured Impressions Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, and Big Shot.
The third card uses the lovely branches from the Easter Blooms stamp set.  I wanted to show off all their beauty so I made a larger card at 5-1/4″x5-1/4″.  

Branching Out For You

I’m still getting used to all the new Stampin’ Up! color combinations and went of of the box on this one with Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point!   I added a Brights brad in Tempting Turquoise to one of the Filigree Brads to really add something special to the image of our little girl once again.  And I coudn’t resist adding a tiny Basic Pearl to her hair!

Here’s to hoping that Spring is right around the corner!
Supplies:  Card 3 – Stamp Sets:  Easter Blooms and Clearly for You; Cardstock:  Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, and Whisper White; Ink:  Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point;  Accessories:  Punches:  Scallop Trim Corner, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border and 3/4″ Medium Circle, Filigree Brad, Brights Brad, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon.
