Up - Up and Away!

There are so many NEW and exciting Stampin' Up! products out in the Occasions Catalog.  
And of course I just have to have it all!!!  LOL  
Below I will show you a few of the products that I have been playing around with.

This card was inspired from a card Mary Fish had made. Thank you Mary! I added a little extra and designed my balloon a little different.

Are you wondering how I cut the balloon out so perfect???  Guess what?? Stampin' Up! has come out with a Framelit that cuts them out!!!  How fabulous is that!!  The set is shown below.
Balloon Framelits Dies by Stampin' Up!
But that isn't even the best part!
There is also a stamp set that goes with the framelits!
Can you tell I am just a little excited!
Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!
You can bundle the Framelits and the Stamp Set and Save 15%.  How great is that!

For the balloon on my card, I cut out 2 balloons.  One in Melon Mambo and the other in Basic Black.  I then took the Basic Black Balloon and punch out the stars with the Star punch for the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The tail is stamped with another NEW set called "Hello Life".  As shown below.  Once I stamped the "So Sweet" I took a Project Life Journaling Pen and added the little swirl coming down.  The of course I had to add some bling with the Glimmering star.

This stamp set also goes with the NEW Hello Life Project Kit shown below.  I am going to be making this kit this weekend at a stamping play-date.  I will post some pictures next week.

Valentine Picture Challenge

It is that time of year again to tell all the people in your life that they matter and you love them!!
What a better way to do that...then sending a hand crafted card!!

Just love the new Occasions Catalog that just came out!!  If you haven't seen it yet...make sure you go and check it out!  Stampin' Up! once again has out done themselves.  There are so many wonderful new products in the catalog.  I am sure you will find something that you like!!!  

In this DOstampers picture challenge it wasn't hard to figure out which way to take this one.  Of course you have to do a Valentine's card!!  This card is one that I designed for a swap that I was in.  I am falling in love with the NEW Confetti Heart Border Punch.  When you use this punch and put a color underneath it, it makes your project POP!  This punch will be awesome to use in my scrapbooks as well.

I have also used a NEW stamp set called, "Hello Life".  It is a Photopolymer set.  What is even better with this set it is used in a NEW Kit that has come out in the Occasions Catalog.  I will be posting a picture of the finished kit project at the end of this month.  So make sure you come back to check it out.  It is really GREAT!

DOstamper Color Birthday

Welcome to another DOstamper Thursday Challenge!

Love these colors together.

At first when I seen the colors I thought that it would not be that great together....but wait until you see the card that I came up with!!  Drum roll please........

I have to thank Mercedes Weber for the inspiration for this card. Thanks Mercedes!!   I took her card and just made a few changes.  So...what do you think of the color combo now?  I think they look outstanding together.  They are so bright and bold.

I just love the Alphabet Press Embossing folder for the background.  It just gives the whole card a wow factor.  This embossing folder can go with so many different occasions in making cards or scrapbooking.  The Happy Birthday is from a set called " Age Awareness ".  If you haven't seen this set yet, it is a must see for your birthday projects.  And of course you always have to add the Bling!  For my bling I have added the Silver Glimmer paper which is cut out on the Big Shot using the Label Framelits Collection.  Also the star is punched out with the glimmer paper as well.  I used the little star from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.

This is also a sneak peek at one of the card for the Up and Coming Card Buffet on Saturday, November 1st.

In this picture, these are the front and the 2nd panel to the screen.  I just love that little punch art Bat.  And how about the NEW  Fall Bundle that came out in the Holiday Catalog!!  It is called "Fall Fest", it is a Photopolymer set.  But what is really great you can get it as a bundle and get the framelits to cut out all the images in the stamp set.  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for us!

Check out future challenges here:

This week it is the DOstamper Stars 100th challenge!
So the Stars decided that we would do a
Winner will be drawn randomly by my other half.

How cute is he!!!

This time of year is one of my favorite holidays to decorate and create for.  Next to Christmas.  So of course I had to do a Halloween Card for our challenge this week.

Did you happen to notice the Designer Series paper in the background???  Yes, it is NEW and it is a Christmas paper!  But I seen the design and just knew I had to use it as a Halloween card.  Stars - Bat...of course!!!  Stampin' Up! has made it so easy and versatile for us to use the DSPcardstock for more then just the occasion it came out for.  You can find this in the Holiday Catalog that just came out.

The bat is made out of the Build a Owl Punch.  How great and easy!!  For the wings of the bat I used the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Heart punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  The heart punch was used for making the scallops on the end of the wings.  

The of course you have to finish off the card with some Chevron Ribbon and Candy Dots!!!
