Busy, Busy...


I have been busy making Christmas cards for the season. I just love this stamp set, Snow Swirled (retired) and the snow flakes from the Snowflake Soriree.

August Team Share and a sneak peek from the Holiday Catalog!!

Michelle sent us these items to use for our team share and they are from the new Holiday catalog!!!
Isn't this exciting!!!

She sent us a piece of DSP from the Petals and Paisleys (double sided)and two die cuts from the Halloween Scenes Edgelits all from the holiday catalog.




This card is a z fold card, some also call it a double z fold card

Cardstock used is Very Vanilla and the copper foil is new in the holiday catalog. The leaves are from my stash and the sentiment is from the retired set Day of Gratitude.
 
 
You can start ordering from the new catalog on September 1st. Hope you enjoy the sneak peeks:)

Stamp ink Paper Challenge #60

Stamp with Amy K posted a card she created for this challenge and it is simply gorgeous!!!
 And... it is from the new Stampin Up' Holiday Catalog:) 

Now on with the challenge!
The challenge is to create a card using these colors. The colors did not have to be exact because they want everyone to have a chance to join in. Since I have Stampin Up' products I chose to go with:
Elegant Eggplant
Lovely Lilac
Brushed Silver

Here is my card, I used the new Jar of Love on page 75 of the annual catalog for my card.
I stamped the jar on acetate in white stazon ink (stazon is a permanent ink for plastic), the jar lid in the Brushed Silver card stock and stamped in Memento black the lid, I then stamped the water for the jar in Marina Mist, the gold fish in Summer Sun (retired). I then stamped the lighting bugs aka fireflies in Memento Black  and then with Cucumber Crush I colored in their "lights". I then cut three circles to add behind them in Cucumber Crush and added a Wink of Stella to them so they would "light" up. I then stamped Hello Friend in the corner in memento black. I used the matching framelits dies to cut out the jar, lid, water, fish and fireflies.
I hope you enjoyed this card. (sorry if the pic is a little fuzzy)
