Same Supplies, Different Card

How do you feel about leftovers? I’m not talking about dinner. (And there’s NEVER any leftovers of MY dinner!)

I’m talking about bits of things that you’ve stamped and didn’t use.

Did you watch yesterday’s video? We showed you the main circle stamped in Aquamarine Chalk Ink. We couldn’t just leave it alone so we remade the card with the leftovers.

Spring Wedding Card

It may be cold out now, but do you have a wedding coming up in the spring?

We do!

We don’t get a lot of wedding card stamp sets because most everyone we know is married. But the Your Perfect Day stamp set is a little more versatile than most:

The cake (sans lovebirds) can be used for a birthday
Using the pick & omit method with a marker, the Congrats could be used for something else
Don’t you LOVE the circle of leaves?

Are You Ready to Win?

Or should I bark, “Are you ready for some football?”

We are one step closer to that national football holiday you humans call “Super Bowl Sunday”. And my favorite team got one step closer to earning their personal invitation to entertain you while you’re eating loads of food and cheering at the tv.

What a Difference Some Pearls Make

We’ve got lots of stamps and accessories to try out from the Occasions Catalog. If we’re not careful, we’ll get stuck on just one set and miss playing with everything.

Do you ever have that challenge when you get your order delivered by the many in brown? There’s so much to play with!

Another Butterfly Sneak Peek

Does everyone love butterflies or is it just me? You love them, don’t you?

We featured the new Butterfly Basics stamp set here in yesterday’s post. (That’s being released on Tuesday.)

There were MANY good projects and the one that she picked won!

One Layer, One Set Sneak Peek

Do you have a lot of card stock on hand? Do you have a vast array of colors?

One of the first things that attracted Ann to Stampin’ Up! products was that the colors of ink, card stocks and accessories all coordinate! What a time and money saver!

It saves you time because you’re not searching all over for a paper to go with your inks. And it saves you money because color makes the card.

Just like this one layer card. There’s just a greeting and a couple butterflies from one stamp set called Butterfly Basics that’s available to you next week. With the help of the color coach, it looks even better!
