B-day Ballons!

Did you get some time to stamp over the weekend? I actually made time! Of course a few of those pesky household chores didn't get done but there I was getting Bravo Burgundy ink all over my fingers! I know, I know, this card doesn't have Bravo Burgundy ink anywhere on it, that project I will have to share later on.
Don't you just love those hills? I punch out 2 circles from some Wild Wasabi paper and then trimmed the excess off after gluing them to the Whisper White paper. I only wish that the Wild Wasabi balloon would just veer to the left a little but the stamp slipped right out of my hand and that is where it stayed, at least that's my version of the story! To get the frayed edge of the Calypso Coral mat I used the edge of my scissors.
Supplies
Stamps: Up, Up & Away
Ink: Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral
Paper: Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, 2-1/2" Circle Punch

Love Hearts and News!

So many things to share today! First of all, Sale-A-Bration starts on Tuesday January 24th!! Check back here on Tuesday to see all the details and a scrapbook page I designed using free Sale-A-Bration product!

This past week Stampin' Up! held their annual Leadership down in San Antonio, Texas. One of these years I will get there! But this year Stampin' Up! shared news and pictures and more on their Facebook Page about this event it was almost like being there. And there were a lot of really exciting announcements made!

On February 1 Stampin' Up! will be releasing a FREE 30-day trial version of My Digital Studio Express! I love My Digital Studio and would love to share what you can do with it. I will share more details about this fabulous freebie when I hear more! While you wait why don't we get together and see what My Digital Studio is all about? Contact me to set up a date!

A new product! The Simply Scored Diagonal Plate will be available March 1! It will be perfect for scoring envelopes, boxes and more. Note this is not a video about the Diagonal Plate, but really funny to watch as Stampin' Up! employees do a happy dance to celebrate a new product: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=3106806678813

And finally upcoming changes to our catalogues! The current catalogue will be ending on May 31, 2012 instead of the end of June. This year there will be no Summer Mini Catalogue. A new yearly catalogue will start June 1, 2012 and then in August there will be a Holiday Catalogue and a Spring Catalogue in January 2013. That means preorder comes early this year! Oh I can't wait to see the new In Colors and new stamps!

So back to my card. I demonstrated this card a workshop this past Monday. A nice simple card for Valentine's Day. The dotted heart is stamped onto the top note die, then I cut out the Cherry Cobbler heart and glued it in the center of the dotted heart. After stamping the greeting, you wrap a piece of 1-1/4" grosgrain ribbon around the card, then place a stamped and cut out wood grain heart on a Stampin' Dimensional on the ribbon and lastly arrange 3 rhinestones on the left side of the card.

Supplies
Stamps: I {Heart} Hearts, Short and Sweet
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Whisper White
Accessories: Pretty In Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot, Top Note Die
