Just Fur You

Kim's dog swap

Hello Stampers!

When I received my first copy of Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, the first bundle I wanted to order was the Happy Tails stamp set and coordinating Dog Builder Punch. (Buy both and receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle.)

At one time we had a basset hound named Max. He’s no longer with us, but I love dogs. We dog sit for a variety of friends’ dogs from time to time, so I can get my fix that way!

Today, I’m sharing a card I made as a swap for both my team and a leadership retreat. There are a lot of pieces and elements, check them out by viewing the graphics at the end of this post.

In addition to the Happy Tails bundle, I used Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in conjunction with the All My Love Designer Series Paper as well as the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies and the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. I embossed both Crumb Cake pieces with the Subtles embossing folder. See that cute little heart? The Dog Builder punch offers that little gem.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions about the card.

Remember: Sale-A-Bration is going strong. For each $50 and $100 order (before tax and shipping), receive your choice of a free Sale-A-Bration item. Choices include exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, framelits and more. This Friday, February 15, another round of free items will be announced. Stay tuned!

Easy Note Pad

Hello Stampers!
 
When I find a 3D item or treat packet I really like, I kind of go crazy making them. That’s how it is with today’s project, a mini sticky note pad holder. They are so cute and easy to make and decorate.
 
I started making the pads featuring the All My Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s new Occasions Catalog. I just love the Lovely Lipstick Foil that created the heart on the front. The other design is also created with Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog, How Sweet It Is. The colors in the paper lend themselves well to festive treat packets. You can get 12 treats from just one sheet of 12 x 12 paper.
 
The Designer Series Paper is cut at 2 inches x 6 inches. Score at: ¾, 2, 2 ¼, 3 ¾, 4 and 5 inches.
 
Fold each end over and adhere. Place a sticky note pad in the center. I put some extra adhesive to make sure the pad isn’t going anywhere. I found some Velcro circles at my local Walmart store. Then I decorated to my heart’s desire!
 
Remember: Sale-A-Bration is ongoing. For every $50 and $100 in purchases before tax and shipping, receive your choice of an item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Choices include exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, Foil Paper and more. New items will be released February 15.
 
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have any questions about today’ s project.

Lovely Lipstick Foil

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve had fun playing with new products. One of my favorites is the Lovely Lipstick Foil sheets available free with a $50 purchase during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion. You receive four, 12 x 12 sheets of Lovely Lipstick and four of the Grapefruit Grove. You must absolutely see these gorgeous papers in person.
 
Here, I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to crop a heart from the Lovely Lipstick and then I ran that heart through the Big Shot in the Lace Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. It offers such an elegant look.
 
The biggest tip here is that I cut the heart from the layering piece. See the piece of foil beneath the Crumb Cake? I cut the heart from that piece and layered the Crumb Cake on top. I get more bang for my paper and you don’t even know it (unless, of course, you take the card apart!)
 
Other fun elements here are the doily, the All My Love Designer Series Paper and the Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love combo package.
 
Thanks for stopping by today. To purchase the products to create this card, click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store. If you have any questions about how this card was created, I’d love to help!
 
Thanks,
 
Kim
