One sheet wonder with Butterfly Basics

These are six of the seven cards that you can make in the One sheet wonder class. 
I have been wanting to do this technique in a class for some time. 
This set is perfect for it! 

This class will include the Stamp Set (Wood $47.95, Clear $35.95, or Photopolymer $23.95) and the Thinlits dies ($24.95) so you can continue to make cards and decorations with you own set. It will also include a free SAB item if you choose the wood or clear mount or add to your order of the Photopolymer set. You will make all seven of the cards (one is not shown) and learn the one sheet wonder technique. 
There is a list of things to bring along (if you have them) so we don't have to wait for things to be passed from one to another. If you don't have it, you can share. 

Location: Festival in Manitowoc
Day: Thursday
Date: January 29, 2015 
Time: 12:30
Cost: Wood $81
          Clear $69
          Photopolymer $58
          Seven cards without purchase $25
          Free with a $50 order
Things to bring:
     Ink pads Daffodile Delight
                    Crumb Cake
                    Wild Wasabi
                    Calypso Coral
                    Cherry Cobbler
                    Early Espresso
   Paper Cutter/trimmer

Hearts and Valentines

I am enjoying the products in the new catalog! 
If you need an Occasions catalog (Jan 6 to Mar 31, 2015) or a SAB catalog stop at the Library on Monday the 12th and pick one up. 
If you can't make it to the Stamp Along to get the free shipping with the participation and need/want to place an order, just email it to me. 
If you would like to place an order on line, please use the hostess code 
to link it to the Stamp Along order. 
Don't forget that you can choose a free SAB item for every $50 of product that you order! 
There are some really neat items in that catalog also! 

These are two of the Valentines that will be at the Stamp Along on Monday.

Lots of new product used on these! The heart border punch, the Designer Series paper in the stack, the heart folder, and the bow punch.
Which one do you like the best?

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics Bundle is Awesome!

This bundle from the new Occasions Catalog is Fantastic!
There is so much that can be done with it! 
I have used it for two of my swaps 
These are both in need of a little more instruction than there is at the Stamp Along.
I would be very glad to do them for a workshop though. 
Let's set up a date during SAB so you get more goodies! 
This one uses a variation of the one sheet wonder technique. 
It uses all of the stamps in the set! How often does that happen?
There is usually, at least, one stamp in a set that I never use. 
Does that happen for you?

The colors I used on this are: Daffodile Delight, Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi. Cherry Cobler, Calypso Coral, and Early Espresso. The card base is Crumb Cake. and layers of Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake. I also used a little piece of that pretty two tone trim that was carried over from the Holiday catalog. The banner framelits die and the butterfly die make the cutting a breeze. 

This one is done with the white ink on the Blackberry Bliss card stock. The top layer is embossed with the Tiny Triangles folder which is then raised with dimensionals to give that butterfly a great look of depth. The little guy is stamped of the free Specialty paper that can be had with a $50 order during SAB. It is really neat! It is the same design (there are 2 sheets each of 6 different designs) as the one used in the last post. 

The card base on this one is Wisteria Wonder and the layer is Soft Sky. 
I know, it looks white on here! 
I have many more cards done with this bundle! 
I have a class almost ready to show you! If you are liking these cards, consider buying the bundle and you will get to make four or more cards for only about $5!
Watch for more info!

SAB Birthday card

Happy New Year!
May 2015 be your best year ever!

Sale-A-Bration is here!
I have been playing with my preorder stamps and am loving them!
This card was made with one of the sets I got free with a $50 order! You can get it also!
Need a new Occasions catalog? 
I will have one of those and a SAB catalog for you at the Stamp Along on the 12th of Jan. 
Stop and pick up one of each even if you can't stay and stamp. 
This card is one that will be there for you to choose as one of your five if you do stay and stamp. 

The card stock on the top part of the card front is also a choice for a free item. 
It is awesome! It is white and you can pull out the design in any color that you want! 
Hope to see you there!
