Stampin' Up! Flurry of Wishes by Stacy


Hi everyone! Today I'm thrilled to share two beautiful cards created by Stacy McCain, a Demonstrator in Boise, Idaho. Not only are the cards pretty, but I love that she chose to share two different ideas using the same stamp set. It's always good when a stamp set lends itself to different ideas, right?

Embellishment in center of snowflake: Winter Wonderland Embellishments
Also uses Softly Falling TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder) 

Sparkly details: Iced Rhinestone Embellishments (center of snowflake) along with Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum. The Silver Glimmer Paper and Basic Jewel Rhinestones can be found in our Annual Catalog.

As stated above, both cards use our Holiday Catalog stamp set Flurry of Wishes. And if you like coordinating products, then you'll be happy to know that this photopolymer set coordinates with the Snow Flurry Punch. Purchase the two together in a bundle and you'll save 15%.

Colorful fall Stampin' by Tammi V


Happy Fall, y'all!

The projects I'm sharing with you today were created by Tammi Verbarendse, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator near Phoenix, AZ.  She and I are part of a small group of demonstrators who swap card ideas once a quarter. This quarter, our focus was on items from the Holiday Catalog. Tammi focused on fall projects; lots of fun here :)

Stamps: Acorny Thank You, Acorn Builder Punch (Bundle these two items and save 15%)

Stamps: Sweet Haunting; Spider Web Doilies (embellishment); Happy Haunting DSP

The sentiment (tag) on this second card coordinates with our Note Tag punch (yay!). To get those funny bottles however, you'll want some Paper Snips to fussy cut. Hope your hands are recovered, Tammi :)

Idea share: Pinterest Inspired Challenge



Following a series of links the other day lead me to a new challenge site called Pinterest Inspired Challenge. I believe it is once a month and they even give out a prize to the winners selected. But what I really love is that the samples provided really inspire you to look at an item/project and explore myriad ways you can use it. To see what I mean, check out the September challenge and Design Team projects. Compare them to the original and you'll see how each was inspired in different ways.

I hope you enjoy this new site and Thanks for viewing today's post!
