For Nienie

I am a huge fan of Nienie and would like to direct you to my friend Lisa's blog for a sweet idea to brighten her day. If anyone ever needed it - it would be Nie. She is an incredible soul and was even on Oprah a few months ago. Check out Nie's story and Lisa's wonderful idea for a random act of kindness. . . I bet you'll be glad you did!

You Raise Kindness To An Art

Just a quick post as I'm trying to keep up with my resolution of blogging more often. I love making cards using my Big Shot as it gives some nice touches like the scallop edge of this card. Its quick too. If I had to punch that out myself it would have taken too long and probably would have ended up crooked. Loving the Vintage Vogue stamp set too!

Vintage Vogue

Another new stamp set from the mini catalog, Vintage Vogue. It was the first one on my list as a must have. I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP which dictated the colors to use with it. I haven't used that paper once and I bought it months ago. Silly me....its so pretty. Another of my New Year resolutions is to use what I have, especially paper, which I seem to hoard.

Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Razzleberry Lemonade, Creamy Caramel, Regal Rose, Crushed Curry & Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Circle Fire Rhinestone Brad, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Rich Razzleberry 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Piercer, Mat

Love You Much

Another hostess club creation and not a Jacki original, I'm sorry to say! I've been seeing cards like this on other blogs and just had to make one too. More new goodness from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Check out the inside of the card - the sentiment comes from a new stamp set, Well Scripted. Besides the fact that the lettering is very pretty, the cool thing about it is that it comes in wood-mount or clear-mount! I bought all the sets from the mini in clear-mount and I love love love them! So did my club ladies! Thank you SU! for offering them. The great thing about these clear-mount stamps is that its the same high quality rubber stamps from SU! but offered in a clear-mount option instead of just the wood-mount option. You've got to try them.

All Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:

Stamps: Well Scripted, Tiny Tags

Paper: Sending Love Specialty Paper, Very Vanilla, Real Red & Pretty In Pink Card Stock

Ink: Real Red

Accessories: Medium Jewelry Tag, Full Heart, Heart-to-Heart & Small Heart Punches, Soft Subtles Brad, Big Shot, Scallop Envelope Bigz Die

Be Mine

Last night we had our hostess club and for the first time we made a scrap page. It was a welcome change from just making cards. The best part was that we used some new goodies from the Occasions Mini catalog. The flowers were all made from the gorgeous new designer series paper, Sending Love and the flower centers were brads, including the new little beauties, Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads. The pictures don't do justice to these products - especially the paper. Its glittery and thick. If you click on the image you can see the details better. The pretty border on the photo mat is the new Scallop Trim Border Punch that could be yours FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog when you spend $50!

Isn't the flower on the bottom corner so pretty? We used the Full Heart punch to create it (so smart, I know!). The new Pretty In Pink corduroy button is the center. Love those! I hope SU! offers those in more colors in the next catalog. And more of the Epoxy Brads. And Designer Series Paper, and...............!

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
Stamps: Sprinkles (for the background)
Paper: Sending Love Specialty Paper, Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Pretty In Pink
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Full Heart Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Medium Sizzlets Die, Big Shot, Paper Piercer, Mat
