Window Shopping Celebrate Card



Hi Friends! Just a quick post for you today as I'm off to Toronto for the Stampin' Up! Canadian Business Conference. It going to be a full two days of training (and fun) and I'm really looking forward to it!  There are also organized swaps at this event and I participated in three. I can't wait to share the cards I created with you next week. In the meantime, I had some members of my "Serene Stampers" group promote this month so yesterday I made some cards to mail off, along with gifts. I made three different cards - here's one of them:

Of course, this would also make a great card for Valentine's Day too!

Have a great weekend and HAPPY STAMPING!

Delicate Details and Window Shopping


Hi Friends!  This morning I decided to work on some cards to create this month's project sheet for a group I belong to. I had so much fun working with the "Delicate Details" Sale-a-bration and "Window Shopping" stamp sets! I really like the sentiment from the "Window Shopping" set and I've already used it a lot.  This stamp set is also part of a bundle that includes framelits which makes awesome boxes and more! 

 Purchasing this bundle, in either clear or wood mount, entitles you to one Sale-a-bration item! You could even choose to get the "Delicate Details" stamp set as your free SAB gift!!  
How awesome is that?!


For today's card I just used the sentiment stamp, as well as a little heart framelit from the new "Love Notes Framelits Dies". Oh my gosh - SO MANY fun new products from Stampin' Up!!!! I really wanted to make a quick video for you of this card (as well as some others) but my camera has decided to up and die on me. Ugh! So I'm going to attempt using my cell phone to film a video later this week - stand by for that (I've never used my cell phone to create my videos, so it's going to be a learning experience for me). Anywho, here is today's card, along with a step-by-step tutorial for you:
