New Products and card samples

Stampin'Up! Released a new single stamp promotion today, just in time for your holiday cards. These are single, clear mount stamps available till January 31, 2013. These are never before seen stamps and many coordinate with punches or framelits. Check out the flyer to the right for more information. These can be ordered by clicking on my store link to the right. If you'd like more information, please feel free to contact me.
Next, I attended an upline meeting last Thursday where we made several fantastic Christmas cards. Here are a few of them:

This one is adorable and the little santa is just so cute! He is from the Color Me Christmas set (131742W/131745C) found in the new Holiday catalog. We added a simple white pom pom on his hat and some Dazzling Details (124117) to his beard and hat for sparkle. The warm winter wishes stamp and snowflake came from the Snow Day (131892W/131895C) set with the cute snowman.

This lovely card was made starting with the Flowering Flourishes stamp (131998W/126367C) stamped in Old Olive. The ornament from the Christmas Collectibles (131772W/131775C) was stamped in Cherry Cobbler. Peace on Earth is from Calm Christmas (132736W/132739C) and was embossed in silver. Rhinestones (119246) were added as well as the layer of Cherry Cobbler was glittered using a glue pen (100425) and Dazzling Diamonds glitter (102023).  I will be spritzing all of them with my shimmer spray of course, but I haven't got around to it just yet. I love Sparkle! Especially for the Holidays.

I think this is one of my favorites. We started with Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. Layered with a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper (124005) which was also used with the Ornament Framelits to cut out the center ornament.  The Wreath is two stamps from the Daydream Medallions (131976W/126467C) set stamped in Gumball Green. Then a touch of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (125585) was added and a Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding bow to top it off and you have a sparkly Christmas wreath card. Oh, the Merry Christmas stamped and embossed in white is from Sassy Salutations (132070W/126707C).

This was a fun twist to embossing folders...We Versa Marked the Chevron (127749) folder and embossed with Irridescent Ice (101930).  A Banner Christmas (130252W/130255C) stamp set was used for the JOY and a Deco Label Framelit was used to cut out a Glimmer Paper Label. The green card stock was Pistachio Pudding and it was teamed up with Cherry Cobbler. You can't see it with this picture but this card really really sparkles! 

Well, There you go! A few fun cards for the upcoming Christmas season. I've been working on lots of projects and classes to share and I'll be posting more pics from convention so keep coming back. And leave me a quick comment if you would please, I love to read them, even if you are a fellow demonstrator!
Happy Stamping....

Holiday Catalog is now Live and New Thinlits Dies are available too!

So, by now many of you have received your SU Holiday Catalogs in the mail and are pouring over the oodles of fun holiday items to make and craft. One of the surprises we were told about at Convention this year were these New Thinlits Card Dies. The picture above shows their function perfectly. Such a fun card and so many things you can do with these new framelits. They shared a few other ideas at convention as well.

This one was cute, sorry that the first pic is a bit blurry. I was trying to photograph a video screen.

Another super idea was this folding photo book/card! Isn't it cool! I can't wait to get these and start making some of these for Christmas gifts.
There are two types of Thinlits dies, one is a Label, one is a circle. Both come with their own embellishments. There is a flyer posted on my blog here for more information so go check it out!
I apologize for not posting more photos of convention sooner as I am knee deep in 30 year High School Reunion plans. Tomorrow is the big day and then it's back to normal around here. I will post a bunch more next week but here's a few to hold you till then...
There were awesome aerial performers and a live band called the Spazmatics rockin' the 80's tunes...

These were the display boards with thousands of samples for all to see...Can you see the message? Share what you love!

They shared fun holiday decor ideas...

Photo journals made with our new line of journals...

Lots and lots of cards and such on's just a couple boards...

There is so much more to share. I have more from the SU headquarters to share so come back and check in with me. If you didn't make it to convention and you are visiting, drop me a comment to let me know you like what I am sharing. 
Until then, 
Happy Stamping!!
