Try Different Colors this Holiday

Today’s share features the stamp Happy Ornament and of course watercolor!  I used the colors Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate.  I have been seeing these colors a lot lately so that inspired me to try a color pallette not traditional in Christmas cards.  I also used the 1/2″ punch to make the little corners and a splatter technique using Wink of Stella. Enjoy!

Double Z Gate Fold Card Using Merry Mice

DSCN0533.jpg

Today’s share is a fancy fold, not sure the official name but to me it is a Double Z with a Gate closure, so I am calling it a Double Z Gate Fold card.  I love that it is very easy to do and always a hit with everyone.
It features the sets Merry Mice and Wonderful Year and of course no card of mine wouldn’t be complete with out using my trusty Aqua Painters or the Big Shot.
As a side note, I do LOVE my Big Shot and I know it is a HUGE investment.  With the holidays on the horizon, why not add it to your wish list and maybe you will find one under your tree!  For more info on how to do this please check out my blog post from September 26, 2016.
Another way to get the Big Shot is to have a workshop and earn Stampin’ Rewards to help with the cost. It can be in your home with friends, collecting orders from the catalog or why not try a Facebook workshop!  Contact me for more details.
Enjoy today’s share!

Halloween Treat Box

dscn0530

Hello everyone!

It has been a very busy few weeks, between family commitments and not feeling well,  I apologize that I have not been able to devote as much time to my stamping business as usual. But the beauty of having my own business is that I can set my own hours and if I need to take a little time off I can.  That’s one of the reason I love being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  As long as I meet my minimum requirements for the quarter I can take off as much time as I need to.

But I am back and have been busy in my stamp room this past week creating projects and videos for the upcoming holiday season, I can’t wait to share them with you!  I also spent the entire day with two fellow demonstrators on Saturday planning our upcoming classes showcasing all the great products in the 2016 Holiday Catalog and including some great gift ideas.

Today’s share is a cute little Halloween Treat Box utilizing the Gift Box Punch Board. This tool is amazing!  It can make several different sized boxes in both square and rectangle shapes and once you get the hang of it they are so easy to put together. Not only great for holidays treats and small gifts but perfect for wedding favors too!

Enjoy!
