Another Bright & Beautiful

Ok, I promise this is the last one for a little while (I think…)  But, I have one more gorgeous card to show you that uses the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and Star framelits.

Bright & Beautiful goldNot to toot my own horn (well, maybe a little…) but isn’t this color combo gorgeous??  The picture really doesn’t do it justice because the star embossed card stock is our Brushed Gold card stock and you really can’t see the shimmer of it in the picture.  The green is Mossy Meadow, one of the new In Colors this year.  Now, I must admit I’m a little partial to green and gold because I attended Baylor University.  Sic Em Bears!!!    :)

Washington DC, Here we Come!!


I am so excited because as this is posting this morning, I am headed to Washington DC for the Stampin’ Up! Getaway Trip along with my husband and two of my daughters.  This is the first time we have brought any of our family along with us on one of the Stampin’ Up! incentive trips and we thought this was the perfect one to bring them on.  They have never been to Washington, so this will be a great chance for them to see some awesome historical sites.

Bright & Beautiful Cards

I know it’s barely Fall, but I’ve got a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today.  And, I’ll probably be posting quite of few of them over the next few months.  My Christmas Card Club started last month and we make 12 cards each month (4 designs), so that means I’ve been busy designing (or copying) a bunch of Christmas cards!

These two cards use the Bright & Beautiful stamp set from the Holiday Catalog along with the coordinating framelits, which you can find in our annual catalog.  I really love this stamp set!

A Spooky CASE

Hi!  I hope you’ve had a great week and are having an awesome weekend!  Ok, so I can’t take any credit for this adorable card.  I totally CASE’d (copy and share everything) it from Becky Roberts.

Mingle All the Way GhostThe only change I made was the face.  Becky used googly eyes which I didn’t have, so I used one of the face stamps that comes in the Fall Fest stamp set.  My club members got to make this fun card this month as one of their projects.

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps:  Fall Fest, Mingle all the Way
  • Ink:  Black Momento
  • Paper:  Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Motley Monsters dsp
  • Big Shot:  Fall Fun Framelits, Party Pennants Die, Lucky Stars embossing folder
  • Embellishments:  White & Tangerine Two-Tone Trim, Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon

Fall Fest Box

Ok, so Halloween will be here before we know it and it’s time to start thinking about making some fun little treats.  Here’s a cute little box my club members are getting to make this month.  I got the idea to punch holes and tie up the top of the box from Angie Juda.  Thanks Angie!

Fall Fest Treat Box

This box is made using the new Gift Box punch board and oh what fun this new product is!  And, it’s only $19.95. What a deal!

The little pumpkin box is the smallest box you can make with it (1-3/4 x 1-3/4 x 1-3/4) and the largest you can make with it is 4 x 4 x 4.

And guess what?  I didn’t even have to fussy cut that cute little pumpkin on the front of the box!  It’s in the new Fall Fest stamp set and it has a coordinating set of framelits called Fun Fall!  Hooray!  And even better… you can buy the two products together in a bundle and save 15%!  Woo hoo!!

Fall Fest Bundle $34.75

Oh My Goodies Notecard Box

Hello!  Today I’d like to share with you one of the projects my club members made this month.  This was based off of a make & take from our annual convention this year.  I changed it up a bit to focus on one of the awesome Big Shot bundles you can get this month either for free or 15% off!  It’s the Decorative Goodies Bundle and it includes the Oh My Goodies stamp set and the Deco Labels Collection Framelits.

Oh Goodie Notecard BoxThe box is made out of a Gift Card Enclosure card.  They come in a pack of 10 for $5.95 (#136662).  I just added an extra score line at 1/4″ on three sides to make it into a little box.

Here’s a closer look at one of the cards from inside.  Three of them along with envelopes fit neatly inside and they’re made from the Note Cards & Envelopes that come in a pack of 20 fro $5.95 – a great deal!  (#131527)

Birthday Box cards

I used the Big News stamp set for these.  The colors are Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry and Pistachio Pudding with some Basic Gray thrown in on the box.

Don’t miss out on the Big Shot Deals, they end on August 31!  When you buy a Big Shot, you get to select one of the bundles for FREE!  (that’s up to a $45.75 value!) or you can just purchase the bundles, which are valued at 15% off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don’t forget that today is the final day to get $150 in the starter kit for only $99!!  See yesterday’s post for more info.
