I can't believe we're heralding in a new year and 2014 is drawing to a close! I hope you can look back on 2014 as a good year and wish you a Happy and Prosperous 2015.
With the New Year comes exciting news - Sale-a-bration starts on 6 January as well as a new Spring/Summer catalogue to look forward to. My regular customers/hostesses will receive invitations to the launch party.
Hellooooo! It's Christmas! The Newborn King stamp set is so apt for today! I stamped with gold Encore ink and gold embossed with a heat tool on Vellum cardstock. On the reverse side, I used the faux stained glass technique and used blendabilities for the different shades of green! Can you spot the new product soon to be coming January next year? Happy Christmas everyone - have a super dooper holiday wherever you are - I hope you are making merry and are enjoying the holiday season with your loved ones.
I guess almost everyone's buzzing with anticipation on Christmas Eve, especially the children for Santa, families coming together, houses bursting at the seams with extra house guests, presents wrapped and under the tree, the turkey and all the trimmings prepped and ready to go, a larder groaning under the weight with grub to feed the five thousand (kidding about the 5,000!) so if you do happen per chance to be blog surfing, here's a last minute useful project to adorn your dinner table.
Wishing you all the joy and happiness this Festive Season!
Trying to share the remaining christmas cards this year before Christmas! I'd been putting off using this stamp because I thought the colouring would be time consuming. I was pleasantly surprised how quick and easy it was - the fussy cutting took longer, wouldn't you know! hehe! - not really, only where the holly leaves were, but the rest was plain sailing. I used my Project Life journaling pens to draw a border to frame the card.
Here's the list!
Only 2 more sleeps people! So who's all ready, and pretty chilled about christmas?
Oh my, talk about a trip down memory lane. This was a swap the lovely Sam shared when she was once a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator way back in 2009! I'm re-visiting this fun-fold as I thought it would suit the Festival of Trees stamp set. It was also one of the first techniques I ever taught when I made my first foray into the Stampin' Up! world!

Here's the card folded out flat so you can see where I've cut a slot 1cm up from bottom edge and 4 cm in from right corner of square. The Slot is cut parallel to left edge of square. You can see my original creation here for some instructions.

I'm enjoying using my Blendabilities. I stamped the bauble on Whisper White, did my colouring then fussy cut the bauble and adhered it to a Crumb Cake layer. The rebel in me also glued the Crumb Cake layer at a jaunty angle - great modern twist, don't you think?

As promised, here's the bonus video. I love Stampin' Up!'s colour co-ordination, everything comes together so quickly and with such pleasing results. There's such a sense of satisfaction to gift giving when you can add your own personal touch. These labels were quick and easy to make. Enjoy!
