Halloween Hello Top Note Card

This halloween combination of Washi Tape, Top Note Die, glitter, candy dots, and Stampin’ Dimensionals is an example of why I love Stampin’ Up! products.  We have so many fabulous options in gorgeous colors that coordinate with our product line.

Dracula Top Note Punch Halloween Card

If I could only have ONE Big Shot Die, I know which one I’d choose…TOP NOTE DIE!  You can create so many lovely and FUN projects with this die!

Here’s one of the punch cards my stampers made at my recent Fall and Winter Holiday Cards Stamp Camp.

Dracula Punch Card Top Note

Dracula’s eyes and nose are made from circle punches – 1″ and 3/4″.  Eyelids and nose are sponged in Wisteria Wonder.  Dracula’s teeth are made from our Pennant Punch (trimmed down) and sponged in red.

Please, Stampin’ Up!, don’t EVER retire our Top Note Die!

Christmas in July Snowman Punch Art Top Note Card

Here is a Christmas Party invitation I made last year.  Some items are no longer available, but you can easily substitute another item (like the snowflake die) with something else.  I do love my Top Note die!

Saying Goodbye to Just Believe Stamp Set

The time is here…I must say goodbye to my favorite stamp set – Just Believe.  Oh, how I loved you so…the many swaps I stamped with you, the many classes I showed you off, the many techniques you were perfect for.

Sadly, it is time for the new stamps to come out and play, but just like the old girl scout saying goes, I'll keep the "old".

Secret Garden Painted Overlay Birthday Card

At last month's Technique Tuesday class, I taught my stampers the Craft White Painted Overlay technique.  This is a great way to color in line image stamps.  Here is the card we created:


Secret Garden Craft White Painted Overlay


The colors used for this card were Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, and Primrose Petals – love this combo!

Snow Much Fun Hostess Goodies

Welcome to the second 2011 VC Rocks Blog Hop…you've most likely arrived here from the Staci Coomb's website http://stampinstace.blogspot.com/

If you ever get lost along the way during the blog hop, you can go back to the main page – www.vcrocks.blogspot.com

The theme of this blog hop is anything but cards! 

At my downline meeting last month, we worked on creating hostess bags.  One of the preorder stamp sets was Snow Much Fun, and it was the perfect for using as a theme for my hostess bag as I am somewhat of a snowman addict!  Even my kitchen decor (including the curtains) is snowman themed!  I really wanted to use some of the new colors too.  I loved the new Chocolate Chip Scallop Polka Dot ribbon so I had to incorporate that too.  My color combination emerged – Wisteria Wonder and Chocolate Chip!  Not your everyday Christmas color combination!

My downline created this bag and tag to hold all the hostess goodies:

2011 VC Rocks OTC Blog Hop-Bag and Tag

The tag and the trio of trees is embossed in silver.  I just love those little birdies!

Here are a few other items I like to include in my hostess goody bag:

This is a sampling of the new In Color Card Stock.  Love the new Polka Dot Brads!!!

A hostess can always use a little chocolate!


2011 VC Rocks OTC Blog Hop-Ribbon

I know my hostesses love our ribbon!


Here is a close-up of the ribbon topper:

We also created a card using this fabulous new stamp set and some of the accessories.  You're going to have to come back later this month to see it as I am hosting a Christmas in July stamp camp later this month!

I hope you bookmark my site or subscribe to my blog. I've got some fabulous new programs I'm unveiling in the coming weeks. You can also find me on my Facebook page – Stamp With Jane!

What is VC Rocks…and why do I love it?? VC Rocks is an online community where members share their love of stamping before, during, and after the Stampin' Up! convention. If you can't go (or even if you can) to convention, you can get your "stampin' mojo fix" with challenges, swaps, and discussions! I have "met' many fabulous stamping demos and nondemos through this group.

Thanks for stopping by, and now your next stop is Barb Furlong's blog – http://www.theloveofstamping.com/.
