Another Stationery Set

I loved how the monogrammed stationery sets came out that I made for Eve’s teachers. Unfortunately, I was not able to deliver them, since we missed the last 6 days of school due to the ice storm. They will be getting their gifts as New Year presents instead. Anyway, I decided to make one for my sister-in-law, as part of her Hanukkah gift. I used the new Candy Lane paper, from the Love You Much bundle.

This is the outside of the card set:

Here it is with the ribbon untied. The cute birdies are the same image as in the Love You Much stamp set, only larger, and are printed directly on the Designer Series Paper.

I made two cards each of the three color combinations:

Beers to You!

The way the Sock Monkey holds out is hand, it just calls for something to be put in it! And what better than a beer from the Cheers to You set? I made this as a birthday card for a friend of mine who loves monkeys.It is hard to see, but I used Dazzling Diamonds on the beer foam.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it! Here is another Christmas card I made to send to friends. Not sure why the red is showing up fluorescent orange, probably because I took the picture with my phone.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Holidays & Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Top Note Bigz Die

I love the layout so much! I switched the Riding Hood Red to Baja Breeze and made these condolance cards. They are part of a gift from my mom to her Rabbi friend. They could be useful for many occasions.

Still More Love

I already mentioned that the Heart to Heart punch fits the stamp with the three hearts on it, but did you know that the stamp with the cute “Hugs & Kisses” on it fits perfectly in the Scallop Circle Punch? Love it! Here is my version of a gorgeous card designed by Lisa Henke.

Paper: Close to Cocoa, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, Candy Lane DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red

I love how those little birdies look paper-pieced, so I made this one too:

Yes, I will keep showing you cards from the Love You Much Bundle. You might as well give in and decide to get it. Especially since you can save on shipping if you order it on December 23 — the first day it is available and the last day of the free shipping promo. Both of today’s cards use the punch in the bundle — the three hearts on the punch line up perfectly with the three hearts on the stamp. They also use the Top Note Die. Between the punch and the die, it is so easy to make quick and elegant cards!

Ink: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Pink Pirouette Striped Ribbon, Heart to Heart Punch, Top Note Bigz Die, Big Shot

Stampin’ Up has a new Sneak Peek bundle coming out, and it is available BEFORE the new catalog starts in January! As a demonstrator, I was allowed to purchase it early, and I just found out that I am now able to share the details with you! (Want stamps early? Think about signing up to be a demonstrator…)

It is called the “Love You Much Bundle” and it includes an adorable six piece stamp set, a pack of Candy Lane Designer Series Paper, and heart punch that matches the stamp with three hearts on it in the set. I am a sucker for punches that match stamp sets, and this one is so cute! Here is the first card I made with this new set:

cimg7278

Stamps: Love You Much
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Candy Lane DSP
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Circle Bigz Die, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die, Big Shot

Buying the bundle saves you over $10 off the price of buying them each separately. It is available from December 23, 2008 to January 31, 2009. Don’t forget, you can get free shipping on this order, because all orders of $70 or more get free shipping now through December 23! Two other specials going on right now — 10% off of the retiring stamp sets, now through December 23 and 20% off of the sets in the catalog sampler, now through January 18. Confused? Email me what you want, I’ll help you get the most for your money!
