New Christmas Ornament Punches

The new Holiday Catalog is LIVE!  It's always exciting to have new, fun product to play with.  And I think this catalog is REALLY good.  It was hard not purchasing all the catalog.

Yesterday, I showed you, I purchased this stamp set.  I love Christmas ornaments and they are hard for me to resist.  There is something about them that pulls at my heart strings. 

With this said, it had to be the first stamp set I had to play with.  The two smaller ornaments are stamped in Pretty Peacock and Night of Navy.  The larger ornament is on Pretty Peacock and embossed with Copper embossing powder. 

Take a look at this DSP.  Isn't is absolutely gorgeous???  Love how these color go together.  The the pop of Copper... WOW.   That's all I have to say about that.  This could also make for some great masculine cards.  

I have a feeling there will be plenty of cards made with this stamp set and DSP.  Is this on your Wish List?

Are you excited for tomorrow?

Are we all excited for tomorrow? 

Do you even know what happens tomorrow?

Well, let me tell you...

 

The New Holiday goes live!!!

I'm so excited for this to start!  There are some awesome things just waiting to be shared. 

Take a peek at two of the stamp sets I already have in my hands.  The plaid paper that goes with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set is absolutely gorgeous.  It's a 6x6 pack and sometimes I like those more than the 12 x 12.  Hint:  I try not to use more than a piece smaller than 3 x 6. This way I can easily get two cards from one piece of paper.

I already have some ideas that I want to explore with the Beauty & Joy stamp set.  It's not just for one season either.  Yay!  It would even look great with the plaid DSP.

Here's another promotion starting tomorrow...

 Here is the list of DSP packs that are included in this sale.

Celebrating You

I haven't been in my stamp room to much this last month, but I'm back now.  The girls both left for college yesterday. I'm soooo upset that this is the first time since they were 3 years old, I didn't get a "1st" day of school picture!  While they have been in college, that picture was them standing by their loaded car.  Things have been so crazy around here that I completely forgot. If the girls realized I didn't get the picture, they kept quiet about it!  But I didn't expect them to say anything either.  

I still can't believe that it's September.  Where did the summer go?

I haven't used this stamp set in a very long time, so it was time to dig it out.  Milk cans are a favorite of mine, so I had to purchase this stamp set right away.

The strip on the left is Smoky Slate embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I bought it last year, but I think this is one of the first times using it!  I hate when that happens!  

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set.  The Whisper White piece is 3 x 1/2.  The ends were put in the Everyday Label punch.  In the center of the side, is a rounded area.  I slipped the paper in the side and punched.  Repeat the same procedure for the other side.  It's a nice change from the banner ends that are so popular right now.

Clean & Simple Swaps

Today I want to show some more of the Clean & Simple Swap cards I received.  

No photo description available.

Normally, I am not a fan of this paper, but does it work!  The colors are perfect for this particular stamp.

No photo description available.

I think that I am the only demonstrator who doesn't own this stamp set and cordinating DSP.    Maybe I should put it on my wish list.

No photo description available.

How can you not like daisies?  They are just such a happy flower.  The three rhinestones add just the perfect amount of bling.

No photo description available.

I much as I hate dandelions in real life, I love this dandelion stamp set.  By putting some of the dandelion in the bottom right corner makes you feel the dandelion is blowing away.

I haven't been in my stamp room in quite a while.  Things have been super crazy around here.  The girls both leave for school on Sunday so once they are gone, I'll be stamping again!

Until next time...Stampin' Always,

Cheryl, HomeStyle Stamper

 

Today's Updates

Are you ready for some updates?  Here they are!

Stamping Trimmer

The new Stampin' Trimmer will be available for demonstrators to order by the end of the year!  It will be available shortly after that for all customers.  Yay!  This is great news.  The cost should be around $25.  Demonstrators who were on the Incentrive Trip got a sneak peek and the reviews have been awesome!  

Unfortunately, the blades for the current trimmer are now sold out.  They went on sale today and within minutes, they were gone.  There will be no more shipments on these.  

Holiday Catalog

It starts September 4th!  Have you looked through the catalog?  It's is pretty good!  If you need a copy, let me know and I can get one to you.  I'm excited to start making Christmas cards.

More Sailing Home

Why is the weekend so short?  Yesterday was crazy!  We drove up to LaCrosse and moved Megan's things into the dorm.  She was able to move her things in early and came home with us.  It beats the craziness of the typical move in day.  She won't leave for school until next Sunday.  

We came home and I had some friends come over for a small stamp-a-stack.  It's the first time since June we've all gotten together and we had a great time!  It was a good thing we weren't in any hurry because we had a lot to catch up on.  It was awesome seeing them again.  I miss those ladies so much.

This is the last card we made at my Floral or Sailing event last week. We also did it last night.  There is a lot going on in this little card.

Take a look at the center circle.  The Whisper White actually has the circle cut out and the DSP is glued to the back of it!  I used the Stitched Shapes Dies for the circle.  This way, you have a nice circle to use in another card!  It's all about recycling.

The bottom seemed to plain, so I added water using the aqua painter and Night of Navy ink pad.  By adding Balmy Blue, you would get more dimension in the water.  Totally didn't think about that until just now.  

Here's a closer look.  Notice I adhered the anchor, Thanks banner and large sailboat with dimensionals.  The seaweed is also adhered only towards the base.  I wanted the top of it to be floating away from the card.  

I also added a trinket in the left corner.  Some how, I orderd two sets of them so I figured, better use them up.  The people who came to my events enjoyed using them.

Sailing Home Thank You Card

Well, I think I did accomplish evereything from the to-do list the other day.  Whew!  Once I get my living room back, I'm done painting for a while.  Alyssa's room does look so grown up!  But she is 22 years old too.  We got some shelves up, bookcases are filled, and pictures will be hung on Monday.  

Alyssa needed a masculine Thank you card and this is what I made.

Sailing Home Stamp Set made the card pretty easy. I've never bought a stamp set like this, more on the masculine side, but I'm really liking it.  It's good to get outside of your comfort zone.

Take a look at the ship's wheel.  I cut one out from the dies in Soft Suede, but the trinket wheel fits perfectly on top.   The trinket is adhered by using glue dots.  

The lighthouse and ship are also cut out using the dies.  The only stamp that is directly on the Very Vanilla is the sentiment.  In fact, the lighthouse is adhered with mini dimensionals.  

I relaly wanted to add pearls on the Very Vanilla, but figured it woul take away from the masculinity of the card.  I'll save those for another day.

Swap Cards!

I've been busy painting and re-doing Alyssa's room, so I haven't had time to get in my stamp room.  Hopefully, tomorrow will be the last hard day of work.  Tomorrow's list includes - washing new bedding, finish painting shelves, finish painting picture frames and framing pictures,  iron/hang curtains, start putting things back in room.  Oh, and make dinner.  (I'm thinking it might be Papa Murphy's.)

It's not much of a list, right?  Hoping to get quite a bit done during the day so tomorrow night we can bring in her bookcases and she can unload all her books.  And she has quite a few.  Hanging the shelves and pictures better be done by Saturday, at the latest.  Then I'll be taking a break from painting.

I wanted to show you some of the cards I received from a swap.  They are in no particular order.

This stamp set has been on my wish list, along with half the catalog!

 

Purple Irises.  Love the combination of the two purples.  And I'm not the biggest purple fan either!

Until next time...Stampin' Always,
