Sorry I’ve been away from blogging for a bit…it’s been a bit of a busy week. I’ve had 2 great Stamping Parties (Thanks to my wonderful hostesses Paula Guzzo and Leona Overduin, who each got a TON of free stuff!!!) and I hosted a Demonstrator Information evening (We had a great time and I’m lucky to have 5 new demonstrators join my group who each took advantage of the great deals Stampin’ Up! is offering.) You can join to be a demonstrator in Canada for only $208 + you get a FREE STAMP SET!!! What an awesome deal!!! I love Sale-A-Bration!!! It’s such fun and creates so much excitement! AND then to make my week a little sad…I have a yucky cold. So, all that to say-I’m a bit behind in Blogging…so sorry. Thanks to everyone who comes to visit- it really does make me feel loved!!! I appreciate all of you!
Here is another look at "She’s All That" from the upcoming Occassions Mini. It is such a great set and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these ladies, there is one for every Occassion!
Stamps: She’s all That
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: Ribbon Slide, Ticket Corner Punch, Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Sponge Dauber, Mat Pack & Paper Piercer, Pop Up Glue Dots
Card Details: I used Close to Cocoa cardstock for my card base and cut it to 4 1/4 by 11. I just can’t help but using Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper-it has so many YUMMY patterns. I chose this pattern because I felt it gave a nice soft look to the card. (Layer Size: 4 by 5 1/4). I added a ribbon slide (aren’t these adorable?) to a piece of Chocolate Chip Grosgrain and wrapped the ribbon around the back. I used Whisper White Craft Ink (one of my favourites!) for the Bride…doesn’t every bride deserve to be in white?! I stamped the bride on a piece of 2 1/2 by 3 3/4 Chocolate Chip Cardstock. Then I used the ticket corner punch to pop out each corner. I adhered to a piece of 2 3/4 by 4 inch piece of Close to Cocoa and used the paper piercer to poke holes in the corners. I inked up a sponge dauber in Whisper White ink and inked the edges of the outline, it gives it a great look and shadow. I used pop up Pop-Up Glue Dots to mount onto the Berry Bliss layer, so that it gives a 3D effect.
Stamps: She’s all That
Cardstock: Whisper White, Regal Rose
Ink: Regal Rose
Accessories: Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Horizontal Slot Punch
Card Details: For this simple card (aren’t those the best types???) I took a piece of 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 Whisper White cardstock to create my base. I then stamped the "birthday girl" in Regal Rose onto a piece of Whisper White 2 1/4 by 3 1/2. Then I mounted onto a piece of 2 1/2 by 3 3/4 Regal Rose. I added dimensionals to the back and adhered slightly off center onto the card base. Using the horizontal slot punch, I punched on the fold of the card and took a piece of Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon and fed it through the slot so it wraps around the entire front of the card, inside & out. I then finished off the card with a classic bow. Isn’t it a cute card?
Here’s a close up of how the ribbon is fed through:
I hope you like them!!! I’m off to lay down now and see if I can get this cold better. Aaa-Aaa-Aaa-Choooo!!!
