A little Hedgie for you

Inspired by Michelle Suit

Another Stampin' Up demo that inspires me daily is The fantastic Michelle Suit from Disney Suit's Me  here is a recent card that she did of Olive the hedge hog made with several of Stampin up's punches.  Well anyone that knows me knows I love love Punches and what you can do with them. I did a card for my gals at the Rexall on Thursday Evening and  they loved it.  Let me show you both cards and maybe you can come up with a cas (copy and Share) of your own.

Michelle's Olive
Cute isn't it?


Now here is mine  I think I might add some bling a peal to the bow and some Rhinestones to the butterfly and I will be happier with her. If you are in one of my classes you can look forward to doing her and if you are in either my Team Lucky Ladies or Barb's Team Biz E Stampers look forward to doing her at our Shoe Box Swap on March 4th at the Rexall.   We are going to have a good time at a combined function! 

A Card inspired by a Friend

Diana Gibbs a friend of mine and a former Stampin' UP! Artisan Award Contest winner and I swapped cards recently at Leadership here is Diana's card below it is so beautiful and I am sure you will agree.  Diana has a real eye for coordinating the right amount of embellishing and has a keen since for color.

She used our new coredinations paper in pool party this paper can be sanded to show a cool design and awesome texture when embossed) combined with our Island Indigo ribbon( just one of 2 colors with buttons) you can get for free with a $50 order during Sale a bration and the Vintage Verses stamp set also available through a $50 purchase through Sale a bration. She coordinated with some very vanilla cardstock and added just a bit of DSP from the Print Poetry Paper stack  and the 5/8 Flower Trim that each sell for $6.95 in our new Spring Mini Catalog. Also Accented with two of our Basic pearls and the beautiful Doilies from the spring mini which are a real bargain at 24 for $2.95

Any way Diana Gibbs inspires me so much. Through her blog and through the years at Stampin UP!  I have seen her around and  thought she was a nice gal.  My first Leadership was in Nashville.  I finally got to connect with her because my roomate for Leadership Cathy Williams was friends with her so we got to hang out. Cathy and I had never met and got along just great.  She is like a big sis and always has one of those great big smiles and hugs to give me. Very Positive type person and definitely the type you'd want to have fun with. Both gals are super and most Stampin' UP! people you meet are..

So here is what I made from what she swapped with me

Everything is pretty much the same except I made the flowers a little darker with the sponge dauber and the Tempting turquoise ink and added a heart from the hearts a flutter stampset and framelets bundle and a whole doily and some rhinestones instead of pearls and changed the placement of the sentiment.

Sundress Beach Bag And Bathing Suit

IF you Live in Florida you need a Bathing Suit!

I love our new dress form framelets and the new stampset. It is fun playing with the different combinations of paper and cuts.  when I was growing up I was always amazed with costumes.  I remember my grandma taking us to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus Winter Quarters for their dress rehearsals, thought that one day I would for sure run off and join the circus and be one of  the costume designers.  As I grew up I never out grew the love for the costumes.  The costumes at Disney or any amusement park or parade excite me.  So when I saw the new Stampin' UP! framelets I knew I would love them. If you are a  student of one of my card classes chances are you will make a card  or two with them soon.   Here is an easel card I designed from some of my retired Pocketful of Posies dsp.  I made the Sundress the Bathing Suit and the Beach bag.  I know you Florida Girls will love it.

My Work is FUN!

My Work is Fun! 

Today I had a workshop at New Hope Baptist Church, I had a dozen nice ladies ready to learn about the craft of card making,   I always get such a joy out of watching a brand new stamper with a stamp in hand and the amazement and the look on their face when they realize  that they actually have made something so beautiful with their own two hands and very little guidance from me.   Some of them I get quite tickled with when they tell me they aren't really very creative and they come up with the prettiest ideas. Some become skilled quickly and others it takes some practice.  I tell them we all make mistakes and that is why there are two sides to the paper,   By the end of our session most everyone is wanting to know when you will be coming for the next class.

Here is a picture of them busy at work, Good new is I am returning to craft with them in April and in June.

 If you are looking for a job  where you can be creative make your own hours and make a little bit of money and have fun then Stampin' UP!  may be the place for you.  I have my own Stampin' UP Lucky Ladies Team and would be all too thrilled to intoduce you and invite to to join my Team.  I have a group downline meeting and opportunity night  on the First Monday of every Month at the Rexall in Inverness FL, Time is from 5:30 till 7:30pm  come as my guest.  To join the team just use my online website and click on join the fun.   Have your wish list to fill up to the value of $156.50 without going over as that is what you get all for $99 and Tax that includes the shipping!  Normally you just get $125 but for sale a bration and Stampin' UP! is celebrating their 25th years they decided to give an extra bonus.
