Five-Way Flower Hello Card

Fun, fun, fun is what I think of the new Five-Way Flower!  You can punch out five layers of this flower with all of Stampin' Up!'s scallop punches and 1/2" circle punch.  I did four layers for this card and added the new Chevron background and sentiment from the Four You stamp set.

Morning Meadow Birthday Card

This is another swap that I made for convention using the hostess set, Morning Meadow.  Did you notice that the flower coordinates with the Pansy punch?  Yes!!  And the pretty filigree label stamp coordinates not only coordinates with the oval framelits but also one of the Apothecary Accents framelits too!

Stampin' Up! Convention! 25th Anniversary!

I still have the convention song, "Be the Difference," in my head!  But it was a fabulous convention this year celebrating Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary.  This year featured an Expo where you could choose which activities to participate in - Paper Pumpkin, Product Playground, Service Project, 25th Anniversary Museum (pictured below), and much much more!

 There were almost 6,000 demonstrators there.  It was more crowded than Disneyland!  :)  Here is a picture I took after a General Session got out and we were all trying to head towards our classes.

I took a picture of the people behind me too.  Crazy crowded!

 Here is a picture of the stage.  There were two jumbo screens on each side.

Here is the line to participate in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most handmade cards delivered from the same place.

It was fun, fun, fun with 25 Prize Patrols, lots of all attendee giveaways, and fun new product reveals!  More to come tomorrow!

Trip to Stampin' Up!'s Home Office

I'm back from Salt Lake City and Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary Celebration and I have lots and lots to share with you!  I'm starting with the home office tour we took on our first day there.  The home office is beautiful and I loved the banners hanging in the atrium.

There was a long line to see the "museum" but it was worth the wait to see all the fun, creative and beautiful ideas in the rooms.

 So many inspirational ideas!  I can't wait to use some of them in my own home!

What do you see that you would like to do in your home?

Six Sided Sampler Card

Another triple threat in the new Stampin' Up! lineup - the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set, the Honeycomb embossing folder, and the Hexagon punch!  I love this card by Lisa, I just changed the DSP to the Gingham Garden because I really wanted the cool edge to stand out.

I'm leaving for convention tomorrow so stay tuned for convention news, samples, and more!!

Mosaic Madness Label Love Card

Here is another card using the coordinating trio of the Mosaic Madness stamp set, Modern embossing folder and Mosaic punch.  I saw this card on Pinterest, but with no watermark, so I'm not sure who created it, but I love it just the same!

Too Kind Card

I love the simple beauty of the new Too Kind stamp set.  And I was so excited to use the new Strawberry Slush ribbon around the oval!  It works perfectly!  I stamped off to create the two shades of Strawberry Slush.  I love using two step stamping to create color dimension!  To create the banner edges, I used the corner of the Square punch.

Wildflower Meadow Birthday card

I'm in love with the new Wildflower stamp set and how it perfectly fits in the coordinating Wildflower Meadow embossing folder.  Brilliant!!  I used markers to color the stamp and then lined it up in the embossing folder and stood back and admired the result!

Mosaic Madness Cards & Tutorial

 I have been having so much fun with all my new toys from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!  This first card is one that we made at my new catalog open house.  I kept it clean and simple while showing off the coordinating Mosaic Madness stamp set, Modern Mosaic embossing folder and mosaic punch.

Here is a quick tutorial I put together that shows you how to make this card:

 Here are two other cards that I made with the same color scheme of the new In Colors Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush.  This one was inspired by Melissa.

This card is a case of Deena's here.
