Stampin Up Cards

Stampin Up Creations

I've been a Stampin Up Demonstrator for 2 months now and figured it was time to start posting some of the cards I have made more recently. The Christmas card is only using Stampin Up papers as the image is digital and colored with copics. I made 6 of these for a Swap with my monthly stamp club. I'm glad to get this one out of the way.

This next one is all Stampin Up product. A lot of work put into this one as there is a lot of inking and stamping as well as coloring. And if you look closely enough at the die in the middle of the you'll see I also used a paper crimper on it. I love the end result of this one.

Last but not least is another Stampin Up card using the Elements of Style stamp set that was used above. This card was a lot simpler, a little time required with coloring the flower but much quicker to make. Not quite the wow factor or all the details you get in the above card but if your in a time crunch this gives you a nice card in the end.

Saturday Sketch Challenge

I decided to do the saturday sketch challenge this week using one of the Kenny K digital stamps. Lots of fun to color. I used My Minds Eye papers, Stampin Up Whispering White satin ribbon with two of the stampin up antique brads, and used my stampin up scallop punch.Also used a little stickles on her earring and the white of the running shoes. Here's the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

My entry for the Sugar Bowl Challenge

I just received my 1st order from the Sugar Nellie collection today and just had to get one of these little cuties colored up. But before I did that I just happened to do a google search and saw the Sugar Bowl challenge. I always love to enter a challenge and didn't let this one pass me buy, the sketch was simple enough and the fact that there was a specific color combo to go with took a lot of thought out of it. I love black white and red and decided to go with these colors, adding the red mat behind each layer to help it pop out more. I didn't have any round buttons to do the little round embellishments on the bottom, but found some cute little red flowers and some tiny brads to create the white center. Overall I am very happy with how this one turned out. Looking forward to coloring up the other two stamps I got. The sketch is included in case anyone is interested in it. Papers used are chatterbox, Basic Grey and the cardstock is from Stampin Up! Thanks for looking.

Tilda holding 3 flowers

Was going through my stash tonite trying to organize my paper into a new organizer I bought. In doing so I came accross this paper and thought it would be perfect for the colors that I colored Tilda with. In going with the sketch I looked for some flowers and also managed to find some that went well with the paper. Used a little bit of my stampin up ink pads to ink the edges of the paper and a little on the flowers to dull the colors a bit and this is what I got. This card has been entered into Sketch Saturday

Tilda wants a Hug

Atleast I think that is what she is called. If I am wrong please correct me. This little cutie came from the fall kit that I received recently. And is the 2nd stamp I have used from this kit so far. I found the little mini Christmas lights at Michaels today, they are by Jolee's Boutique, the paper is Bo Bunny. They are Christmas papers from last year. But perfect colors to go with the red in my image.

This card has been entered into the Sketch Something Challenge & the just Magnolia Challenge.

Merry Christmas Maude

I came across this free digi stamp the other day and thought it was just too cute in a funny kind of way and had to color it. Well I colored her last night and found some papers that went quite well and made up the card today. Everyone in the house got a little chuckle out of her, hope you do to.

This card was entered into the Friday Sketchers challenge using the sketch pictured below. As well also entered Christmas Card Challenges. For those that are interested I got the image from

A little something for the teachers

I came up with this cute little gift bag for a teachers Xmas gift for this year. I used a die that I got on the stampin up clearance rack recently and used two of the stamps from Magnolia's fall collection. A little bit of Xmas ribbon that I had on hand and some dimensional pop dots to make it pop a bit. No idea what these Magnolia stamps are called, but I just love the little girl with her wings. Perfect for Xmas, especially colored in red as I've done. I almost forgot, I used my spellbinders for the first time on this as well as some glitter ritz for the green glitter. Thanks for coming to take a look.

Someone asked for the reds that I used, they are R27, R24, R22 & R20
