Freshly Made Sketches #213

Hey Everyone

I had no idea which stamp set I was going to use when I set out to create a card for my uber talented friend Amy O’Neill.  Amy’s talent has earned her the honour of becoming Stampin’ Up!s newest Artisan Design Team Member! Huge congrats Amy! Here’s her sketch for this weeks challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

So I got my radio going and looked to my new stamp sets.  It then literally only took me about 2 minutes to decide colours and stamp sets and I was off.  Sometimes cards just come together with ease and other times I can sit and play with a card over two days. This card came together in no time – I think I banged it out in about 25 minutes and that included heat embossing my sentiment and bauble. It might’ve then taken a couple more minutes to stick it together.  Love it when it “just happens”!  All thanks to Amy’s great sketch.

Here’s my card:

Pals Paper Arts #272

Hey Everyone

I’m probably the last Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator to put in an order from the latest Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue. I’ve been flat out at work and haven’t had a chance to put in an order until just recently.  New toys have made me excited to spend time in my craft room!

The team from Pals Paper Arts team have designed the perfect sketch for me to use one of my new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Embellished Ornaments.

I’ve used my favourite colour combo at the moment – Tip Top Taupe and Blushing Bride.  Not a colour I’d normally associated with Christmas, but I really love these colours together.  Here’s my card:
