I just received my Spiral Bouquet stamp set in the mail last week from Papertrey Ink while I was blog browsing over the weekend, I came across this card created by Jenn Del Muro. Her sketch was a little different, but I absolutely loved the colors and had to case it (copy and share everything)! Mind is a little different, since the main image was too big to lay it on an angle like hers.
Supplies: (all SU unless noted) Spiral Bouquet stamp set (Papertrey), Paisley/Hounds tooth (retired) background stamp; Really Rust/Certainly Celery/Whisper White/Chocolate Chip/Kraft CS; Really Rust/Chocolate Chip/ Certainly Celery ink; brown taffeta ribbon;large brad
Then I decided to use the same layout and change the colors and main flower image a bit. I think I am going to use this stamp set a lot, as well as this layout.
Have a Wonderful Thursday!
Supplies: (all SU unless noted) Spiral Bouquet stamp set (Papertrey); Plaid stamp set; Ruby Red/Cameo Coral/ Whisper White/Kraft CS; Ruby Red/Cameo Coral/Chocolate Chip ink; large brad

Here is the card I sent out for Thanksgiving this year (sorry it's a little late...I forgot to upload the photo).
I really like the simplicity of this card, sometimes less is more!
Since I wanted the leaves in different colors, I colored the images with my markers then stamped.
Have I mentioned that I LOVE this new wide ribbon from SU!!!! It is Glorious (to quote Ashley).
Supplies: (all SU) Take Three stamp set; Chocolate Chip/Natural Ivory CS; Chocolate Chip Ink; Really Rust/More Mustard/Old Olive markers; wide grosgrain Chocolate Chip ribbon

I am on a mission...to use up my retired patterned paper. Here is another creation using lots of retired stamps, paper, colors.
This card uses one of my favorite sets, Petal Prints (retired). I love stamping the leaf image then re-stamping again without re-inking for a softer look.
Supplies used: French Script Bkgrd (retired) Petal Prints (retired), Warmest Regards (retired) Stamp sets, Chocolate Chip/Whisper White/Cranberry Crisp (retired)/Sahara Sand CS, Chocolate Chip/Cran Crisp ink, Designer Paper (retired), Chocolate Chip Grosgrain 1/4 in ribbon (retired).

Here is another card using more of my retired designer paper that I have been hoarding, lol! I am trying to use up some of my stash, so I can buy some of SU's new designer paper coming out in the Spring/Summer collection. I think the majority of my cards lately all have this new chocolate chip ribbon and the scalloped punch.
Have a great weekend!
supplies: Stamps Papertrey, Seeing Spots, Whisper White/Choc Chip CS, Choc Chip ink, Retired SU designer paper, Scallop punch, wide Choc Chip grosgrain ribbon, light blue brad (non SU)

Well since the Nugget Tins that I needed were on back order, I decided to make these. I filled them with the same Hershey's Nuggets, (stamped with the Holiday Treats set by Papertrey Ink) to coordinate with each project. This one is Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive. I used some of my SU retired paper and the new Dashing paper around the tin.
*To adhere the paper to the tin I brushed it with some Modge Podge, I used my SU red sticky strip tap to hold the band on the tin, and popped up the scallop punch with a few SU dimensionals.
You may remember this card that I posted a while back using the Artfully Asian set from Stampin Up? I decided to use this card as my inspiration for this tin. Old Olive, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip, and SU designer paper Fall Flowers.
This tin uses SU's retired designer paper (which is from last years catalog), I really liked this paper and was holding on to it (hoarding, lol!), It was time to cut it up and use it! colors used are Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla.
Check back tomorrow...for Part 2 of my Tea Tin projects! Have a great Wednesday (looking forward to a long weekend)!

Notice the polka dot background stamp....I am really loving it! I have used it in most of my cards lately.
I don't know about you, but I am so looking forward to having next Thurs and Fri off...This year I am not having lots of Thanksgiving guests, just our family (plus Nate and Sharon, they are just considered part of the family), so the dinner will be relaxed and casual (right up my alley).
I am hopefully going to get caught up on some projects, and complete my fourth digi page from my Now Were Rockin' Class:o) it is a two page spread...maybe if I remember to take pictures on Thanksgiving I will scrap that...stay tuned!
Enjoy your weekend!
Supplies all SU: Oh So Lovely stamp set, Polka Dot bkgrd stamp, Blue Bayou CS/ink, White Craft ink, Basic Black ink, Kraft CS, Wild Wasabi CS, White Grosgrain Ribbon

The saying on this card is "It's the little things that make life Big"
this card is also out of my comfort zone...I usually stay with the more neutral or pastel color pallet...but I do like the color combo!
Notice the brown grosgrain ribbon...so yummy! I LOVE ribbon!!!! This is Stampin Up's new wider ribbon. You will definitely see a lot more cards posted using this ribbon, lol!
Supplies all SU (unless noted): Delight in Life stamp set (retired), French Script Bkgrd (retired), Cool Caribbean CS/ink (last years in color line), Chocolate Chip CS/ink, Whisper White CS, white brads non SU

I just recently started storing my non SU ribbon in glass jars (wrapped on wooded clothes pins), I am also addicted to ribbon, lol! I am most likely going to have to buy some more jars so I can sort the ribbon by color. I think it looks so nice on the shelf like that:0)

I really like the stamps that they sell, they are acrylic and are stored in a cd case (they don't take up very much space at all). I used SU's new in colors, soft sky and groovy guava (I really like this color combo).
I hope you have a great Tuesday!

As some of you may know, I have been a Stampin'Up!© Demonstrator for the past two years. I have really enjoyed getting to know the products (which I think are awesome, btw), and meeting many other SU demonstrators along my journey. I will be putting in my very last order on October 31st...I have decided to no longer be a demonstrator. I am not really holding classes any longer, and I would like to be able to use my craft allowance on other products (of course I can still order from my SIL Dawn). It is kind of sad in a way, but I know it will be ok! I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy for a very long time, lol!
Supplies: All SU! soft sky cs/ink, whisper white cs, polka dot bkgrd stamp, double stitched soft sky ribbon

I just watched the video for lesson 2, I hope I will get my layout completed before Sunday. Luckily I can go at my own pace. I will post my lesson 2 layout once I get it completed. So check back in a couple of days.
Check out Jessica Sprague's website/blog here she offers lots of classes for all levels. I highly recommend her classes, they are well put together and she is always there to help you if you get stuck.
Enjoy your day!
