Simple Nature Walk

This was the swap I made for our January group meeting.  I love Nature Walk which you can find in our Occasions Mini Catalog.  I used Daffodil Delight and  Basic Black.  I used my Color Spritzer Tool and my Daffodil Delight marker for a "speckled/airbrushed" background.  I used a layout idea I received from a Leadership swap.

Get Well Wishes

My kids and I had the flu last week.  We were lucky it did not get too bad.  We caught it really quickly.  Anyway, I have a business coach, Renee, at Stampin' Up!  I was scheduled to talk to her, and did, but told her the story of our family being sick.  I got this card in the mail from her earlier this week.  It truly is a great feeling to get a handmade card in the mail.  I felt very special. It was so nice to know someone had taken time to send me a thought.   Some of the paper is retired but you could easily change out some colors and copy this card.  I love it and can't wait to thank Renee when I speak with her next.

Valentine Pocket Card and Club Spoiler

I love these pocket cards.  I think this one will be for my wonderful husband for Valentine's Day.  They are so easy to make.  Take one of our envelopes and lick it shut.  Then cut or use a border punch to cut off the end. Add a card for the insert and decorate to your liking.  I love the Love Letters DSP, it is a must have.

UDI Inspiration Challenge #131

I decided to stick with the candle theme this week for the UDI inspiration challenge.  Stampin' Up! now  has these great Love Impressions rub ons.  I decided to use them on a glass votive.  What a great gift for teachers for Valentine's Day or to decorate a table.  This was a really quick and easy project.  We have great, one of a kind rub ons that you can use for numerous occasions.  Be sure to check them out.  They are great on cards, 3-D projects and scrapbook pages.  See what you can do with them.  Be sure to check out what the other UDI team members came up with this week.

Leadership was a BLAST

I had so much fun at Leadership this year!  It is like a Stampin' Up! family reunion.  It was so good to see everyone, stamp and be pampered by Stampin' Up!

You need to check out Shelli's blog HERE to see if you recognize anyone there in a fancy shirt.  Rene made Laura Lynn and me these beautiful shirts and it got posted on Shelli's blog!!  How AWESOME!

UDI Inspiration Challenge #130 and club spoiler

This week for the UDI inspiration challenge I am using a club card from this month.  I used the new stamp set, Nature Walk, from the Occasions mini catalog.  I used Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze.  In the demonstrator Stampin' Success Magazine in January they spotlighted the faux silk technique that I used for this card.  I stamped a collage on Very Vanilla.  I then stamped the bird and the no. 147 on tissue paper.  Crinkle up the tissue paper and open it back up.  Cover your neutral paper with our Anywhere glue stick and then lay your tissue paper down.  Trim around the edges and you are done.  The result is beautiful.  Be sure to check out what the other UDI team members came up with.
