SNOW 12X12 Home Decor

SNOW Frame, I saw this idea on Pinterest, it was repinned from (a web site SIU has exclusive for demonstrators so they can show case their creations. The SNOW frame art work was cased from Anne Granger (a fellow demonstrator).  I changed the DSP and colors from the original, to coordinate with what DSP I had in my craft room:  Frame is 12X12 (I purchased at a big box craft store).

StampIn Up Products I used:
Card Stock: Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Whisper White
DSP: this designer series paper is retired (sorry, it was a piece I just had, can't remember its name)
Stamp: Scentsational Season (Holiday 2012 Catalog)
Big Shot: Holiday Collection Framelit Dies  (Holiday 2012 Catalog), Letters, emboss folder
Punches: Bird, circles, Oval, owl, ornament,snowflake, word window, flower

Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking
Happy Holidays

Green & Growing SIU Challenge

I wanted to create a card for this monthes So Shelli StampIn' Up! Challenge using the tri-fold shutter layout, Big Shot Labels Collection Dies (Occasions Mini Catalog)and the NEW Summer Smooches Suite. Here's my first attempt. But it just wasn't popping like I wanted it to.

Here's my 2nd attempt. I added another layer of Lucky Limeade Card Stock, changed the color of the flower to Pacific Point and I used my Big Shot Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder on the Label Die Cut. Just doing a few simple additions to the card made it really POP! What do you think?

Thanks for looking!

Stamp Space Makeover

Stampin’ Up had a contest for a Stamp Space Makeover and Tamzin Cochrane was the winner! Darn it wasn't girls helped make a video to submit last June. What a makeover it turned out to be! Hold onto your hat while you watch this whirlwind of creativity (AKA the Gardners) transform Tamzin’s stamp space into a place of inspiration! They posted a video on Youtube so I thought I’d share with you, too! I hope to try again next Year! Enjoy Lisa!

One Sheet Wonder

Last week a friends father passed away. So I wanted to make some Thank you cards for the family. Plus tie the cards into this months StampIn Up So Shelli - Creative Challenge. The theme is "Keeping it Simple". To me nothing keeps it simple then the one sheet wonder technique - you stamp up one sheet of whisper white card stock... basically creating your own designer series paper.

I first chose my colors, I knew I wanted bright fun colors, naturally my thoughts went to the 2011-13 In Color Line. Next I wanted to use a fun flower stamp set. Then I remembered a fun card I swapped for at my SIU convention last year from Missy Shipman, she had used the colors I chose and the Flower Fancy Stamp Set. Below is my one sheet creation.

First I stamped all over two sheets of
Whisper White CS (Item #100730 $8.50)
Fancy Flower Stamp Set Item (#111578 $36.95)
Ink pads:
Island Indigo (Item #122937 $5.95)
Calyspo Coral (Item # 122939 $5.95)
Lucky Limeade (Item #122935 $5.95)
Here are my final cards I created with just two sheets of 8 1/2 X 11 Whisper White CS that I stampped all over. I created 15 different cards. Plus I only spent about 2.5 hours creating all these cards and 3 loads of laundry.

Other SIU products I used:
Scalloped Oval Punch (Item # 119856 $16.95)
Large Oval Punch (Item #119855 $15.95)
1 1/4" Circle Punch (Item #119861 $15.95)
1 3/8" Circle Punch (Item #119860 $15.95)
Scalloped Circle Punch (Item #119854 $16.95)
3/8" Ruffled Ribbon Lucky Limeade (Item #122977 $9.95)
Lucky Limeade CS (Item #122926 $6.95)
Island Indago CS (Item #122923 $6.95)
Calypso Coral CS(Item #122925 $6.95)
Perfect Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder -Big Shot (Item #117335 $7.95)
Petite Pairs Stamp Set (Item #122497 $20.95- clear)
