A Valentine Sampler

It was our annual Stampin' Up! demonstrator team party this past Sunday.  We always get together for fun and a 3D Yankee swap.  I was strapped for time and ideas, so I made a wall sampler using several current "love" stamp sets and framelits.

The frame is 12" x 12" with a Real Red c/s mat that is also 12" x 12".  Next I attached a 10" x 10" Basic Black mat, followed by a 9 3//4" x 9 3/4" Whisper White c/s mat.  All squares are backed with 3" x 3" mats, and then I chose 4 papers, front and back, from the Sending Love DSP stack for 8 of the 9 squares.  The middle square is Whisper White c/s, also 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, that I stamped with the sentiment from the Sealed with Love stamp set.  I colored the little red heart in with a Real Red marker, but I meant to use one of the hearts from the Brights shapes embellishments (they were MIA after emptying my craft room last week so I had to improvise!).

P.S. The frame is from Michael's and is a shadow box frame.  I stamped and cut double the shapes when making my swap gift so I could keep one too -- I hope to switch out the samplers for different holidays so we'll see how my intentions go!!

Thanks for dropping by!!  The different stamp sets and framelits will all be listed in the supply list (I'll include both individual clear or wood mount stamps as well as individual framelits plus bundle info for all)  but feel free to leave me a comment!!  I'd love to hear what you think!!

Another "Beautiful You"!

I have another card to share today, again using the Beautiful You stamp set!  Once again, I used the classy lady but I paper-pieced her even more elegantly!

I used the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP to stamp her dress and hat -  same technique as yesterday, called Paper Piecing.  Notice the Copper Foil mat and the copper embossing at the bottom?!  Save this card for someone special!!  

That reminds me!  Please leave me a comment with your birthday, because you're special to me!!  I want to send you a card on your birthday -- I tried this last year, but this year I'm SERIOUS!!  If I don't have your address, I'll need you to email that to me HERE.

Beautiful You!

The new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog went live today!  I'm so excited!  I was able to pre-order in December, and one of the first stamp sets I bought was Beautiful You.  It's such a gorgeous set -- the ladies are SO stylish (unlike me who lives in scrubs or yoga pants!!).  I wanted to share one of the swaps I made with this set.

The cardstock I used is Soft Sky with Sahara Sand.  I used the Softly Falling embossing folder for some texture.  Do you notice the dress?  I paper-pieced that, meaning I stamped the image on a piece of Falling in Love designer paper, then fussy-cut the hat and dress (the dress is the easy part -- good thing I didn't have to do around her lovely fingertips!).

Want to see a close-up?

Do you see that "rock" on her left hand?!  Such bling!!  It was the smallest of the Basic Rhinestones but it still looks huge!!  If you want an ingredient list, check the supply list below!  That's all for now!!  I hope to have another swap for a different group to share with you tomorrow!! 

I love the new catalog!!  Let me know if you need me to send you one!!
