Cuppa Time!

I love the name of this set - A Nice Cuppa. You don't hear the term 'Cuppa' much in the States. We use it all the time in Australia though. Basically it means any kind of hot beverage. Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate. A cup of ...(cuppa). "Would you like a Cuppa?" *Grins*

I used a few different sets to complete this card. They work so well together. Not forgetting the Cups and Kettle Framelit dies.

Beautiful Ride

I am having SO much fun with this stamp set as you can probably tell.

'Beautiful Ride' is so versatile. That's one thing I really look at before ordering a stamp set. I want to feel that I am going to get a lot of use out of it before I order.

I found a fun tutorial for making a tie dye background using white filter paper and ink refillers. Worked a treat for this card.

Nothing crazy difficult about these next cards. Just a bit of fussy cutting.

Birthday Blooms

Yay for the NEW Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration starting today!

Isn't this set pretty? It's called Birthday Blooms. I coloured it with my own Colouring pencils my wonderful husband bought me for Christmas, but you could watercolour it, paper piece it, use ink with blender pens, emboss it.
Lots of fun ideas!

Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek - Beautiful Ride

Here is another of my favourite sets from the new catalog. This set is called 'Beautiful Ride'.

This set reminds me of the time when my brother and I were kids and we used to copy car drawings out dad's car magazines. I loved VW bugs and I know I drew one similar to this stamp.

One of the other things I love about this set is that there is a coordinating punch for those little balloons. So no crazy time consuming fussy cutting there!

Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek - Balloon Celebration

These cards were made from one of my favourite sets from the NEW Occasions Catalog that will be starting January 5th. It's called 'Balloon Celebration'.
One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demo is getting to order and play with products before the catalog actually launches.

You can see how fun and versatile this set can be. For girly cards and guy cards.

Do you see that slight glimmer and sparkle on the balloons?
I think that's my favourite accessory in the new catalog. But more about that later.

This card was super quick and easy to put together with the coordinating Balloon Punches.

I used a fun technique called Two Tone stamping on this one. More details on that to come also.
