WWYS #95: Flurry of Wishes

Hello, hello! I'm sorry to say I'm going to have to be short and sweet today because I'm going a little bit crazy getting ready for the holidays. On top of that, Friday was my husband's birthday and I threw him a Surprise Party! It was so much fun and I can't believe that I was able to string him along for so long. I'll try to post pictures of that soon because it was also an ugly sweater party and our friends are pretty fantastic when it comes to dressing up (I mean, they're always fantastic but also fantastic dresser-uppers).

Today's card is for this week's What Will You Stamp Flurry of Wishes challenge... Yep, seriously. I don't have this stamp set so I stamped an image from a friend. I stamped the one that says, "Sending you a flurry of Warm Christmas Wishes." Then I fussy cut out the words that I wanted, "Sending You A," and I pieced them together to create the sentiment that I wanted for this love note card. Most of the products that I used are a sneak peek of the upcoming Occasions catalog! Take a close look-I love those little arrows that I cut out of Copper Foil! Be on the lookout for the new catalog which goes live at the beginning of January. I've got a stack of catalogs that are just waiting to get sent out so if  you don't already have a demonstrator and you'd like your name to be on one of them please let me know!


Here's a look at the Flurry of Wishes set. Do you see the sentiment that I used to custom make my own sentiment?


For more fun ideas on how to use this set hop on over to the What Will You Stamp Challenge blog to check out what the rest of the design team has made to share!

Alright, that's it for now! Have a great Monday and an amazing week! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

WWYS #94: Christmas Pines

Hey Everybody! I've been a little bit MIA haven't I? Well, I'm ba-aack! Sorry to disappear on you for so long I had a lot going on. Mostly, I was sick. First with pneumonia, then with four or five other colds that my immune system was not strong enough to fight off after having pneumonia for a month (possibly three because I had a "funny" cough for two months before I actually went to the doctor's). Then I had a week to get ready for a craft fair that I committed to right before I got sick. It was my first craft fair and I was stressing out! More about that later!

I'm so glad to finally be back and playing along with the What Will You Stamp challenge blog again this week. This week's challenge is Christmas Pines and it's one of my favorite bundles from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. Funny enough, I actually made this card.... maybe two months ago. I took a quick pic and I think I sold it at my craft fair last weekend so no more pics-sorry! 

I used Soft Sky ink to stamp the stars in the background and I embossed the sentiment in gold after watercoloring with Emerald Envy. I love the way the Emerald Envy looks when watercolored because the color stays bold and brilliant even in the lighter layers of color. I used green and gold metallic thread to make a big, loppy bow and I love the way it came out.  

If you have this stamp set I hope you'll join us this week over at the What Will You Stamp challenge blog. If you don't have it and want a closer look here ya go!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! It's so nice to be back here again after taking some sick time off. I also wanted to let you know that Stampin' Up! has a new (ahem, two new) catalog coming out in January! If you don't already have a demonstrator and want a copy of the new catalogs please let me know and I'll get you a copy ASAP! Believe me-These new catalogs are amazing!!

See you all soon!

From My Home to Yours!

Hello, hello! I hope your week is going well. I made this card a while ago and for whatever reason I never posted it. Crazy. I used one of my favorite holiday sets, Wrapped in Cheer, for the sentiment and the Wrapped in Warmth DSP for  the background. 

I punched the sentiment out and layered it on Real Red, a silver foil doily and a white doily.

Then I tied up a pretty little mess of red and green metallic threads and added some mini jingle bells to the mix.

Hope ya like it! Have a terrific rest of your day!

-Maria

PS: We've got a new catalog (or two!) coming out soon. If you don't already have a demonstrator please let me know and I'll make sure you get a catalog.
