Chalk Board Technique

I’ve really been enjoying the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker that is featured in the Holiday Catalog.  Using Basic Black card stock and White Craft Ink along with the chalk marker makes for the fun “Chalk Board Technique.

Holiday Themed Single Stamps!

When Stampin’ Up! came out with the single stamp images before, they were a big hit.  Now they’ve come out with a collection of Holiday theme single stamps and I predict they will be an even bigger hit!  There are eight different stamps to choose from, six of which coordinate with Framelits dies or punches, and we all know how cool it is when things coordinate, right?  Here are four of the new stamps.  Wanna check out the others?  Just click on the shop now button and you can go window shopping at my online store and see them all.

Now for a new card
This is one of the cards we made last night at my Holiday Catalog Kick off party.  Lot’s of texture going on in this card…from the new Burlap Ribbon to the Pretty Print Textured Impressions embossing Folder…it makes me smile!

Flip the Layout

Take a look at todays layout and then check out the layout from yesterday.  Do you notice that’ it’s the same layout only upside down?  I enjoy reusing layouts but changing them up a bit.  This time around the banner is in the top left rather than the bottom right.  Now imaging turning the card on it’s side and you’ve got another layout.  Versatility, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
