Flower Patch Awesomeness!!!

DSCN4085

 Ooooo la la...how pretty is this???  It had to be spectacular...it's for my little beauty's birthday on July 1st!!!  She's turning 20!!!!  I had so much fun making it too!

This card was made with only ONE STAMP SET...FLOWER PATCH!!!  It's on page 156 in the catalog and it's available in a BUNDLE with the matching framelits - FLOWER FLAIR.  And I am so very impressed with the PHOTOPOLYMER-ness of it!  The rubber is clear and I have to say....are you sitting down????  I LOVE IT!!!  Those of you that know me...know that I am not a fan of the clear mount stamps.  I LOVE MY WOOD!  But this may be a turning point for me!!!!!

DSCN4093

 

 

DSCN4096

I have to say that the Magnetic Platform was a JEWEL for using the framelits - it holds them in place like a vise and makes die-cutting sooooo much easier! 

DSCN4063

 The rhinestones just bling the whole card up and I know how my daughter likes her BLING!!!

SUPER Fun Little Letters Card!!!

Screen Shot 2014-06-27 at 10.00.59 AM.png
 

I just got these LITTLE LETTERS FRAMELITS - can you imagine all the possibilities???  I LOVE them!!!!  Here's a fun card made by my friend BJ Peters.  We met BJ and her husband Jim in FIJI on our Stampin' Up! incentive trip last year - had so much fun with them!

 

Here are the deets:

Supplies:

  • Stamp Set:  Papillon Potpourri w-132058 C-123759
  • Cardstock & Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White
  • Punches:  Bitty Butterfly
  • Accessories:  Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Big Shot,  Little Letters Framelits 133730

Measurements:

  • Blackberry Bliss;  Cardstock Base 5 ½” x  8 ½” scored and folded at 4 ¼”,  1” x 4”, + scrap for butterfly
  • Lost Lagoon; 5 ¼” x 4”, 1 x 4”, + scrap for butterfly
  • Whisper White;  5 1/8” x 3 7/8”
  • Hello Honey; 1 x 4”, + scrap for butterfly

Directions:

  1. Fold Blackberry Bliss card base in half.   Adhere Lost Lagoon 5 ¼” x 4” piece to base.
  2. With Whisper White cardstock piece, place Little Letters framelits in position to die cut.  Stampin’ Up!’s magnetic platform is absolutely the best thing since sliced bread to help you with this step.  Since there are some Little Letters framelits that you have to use more than once, just leave the framelits in place – only removing letters like the O and the E to reposition and send through the big shot again.  You can choose whether you add the pieces like the center of the O, A and the P back in later. 
  3. Once finished, place dimensionals on the back side of the white piece to give it height from the background.  More dimensionals are better than too few.    Once finished placing dimensionals, place the strips of colored cardstock behind the cut out letters and secure to the cardstock base.
  4. Stamp the butterflies with the same color ink on the cardstock scraps and punch out with the butterfly punch.  Fold in half and secure with a glue dot placed on the fold.  Add a rhinestone in the middle of each butterfly.

$1000 Workshop Giveaway!!!!

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 7.25.27 PM

Have you seen the new Stampin' Up! catalog yet? Are you so excited about all the new products? Now is the time to gather your friends, show them the new catalog, and get their order! Or perhaps it is time to relax with your new catalog and make your own wish list!

WHY? I am having a $1000 Catalog Workshop to give everyone a chance to order, and to give EVERYONE a chance to participate in the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! HOSTESS!!  This is your chance to get the BLOOM WITH HOPE exclusive hostess set - only $17 in clear mount - for FREE!!!

HOW? It's easy! Show the catalog to people you know (or refer them to the on-line catalog - the link is below, just click on the photo of the catalog)

page1image6648

WHAT? For every $1000 in orders, four participants will receive half price items, and six will receive $26 in hostess dollars!

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO ME? Normally, you need to purchase $150 in order to receive $25 in free hostess product. By combining like this, EVERYONE is a HOSTESS! Everyone will receive EITHER $26 in product OR one 1/2 price item! WOW! This is so cool! AND.. you can submit as many $100 orders as you like!

SO, WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?

First of all, let me know that you are planning on participating. Then turn in your orders and payment (cash, check or debit/credit card) anytime between today and Sunday, June 29th. All money must be here by Sunday night or you have to use a debit/credit card.  There are several ways you can turn your order in to me:

page1image14032 page1image14192 page1image14352

1. Turn your order in online at my website. As you are closing your order, you will be asked if you have a hostess code. At that point you will need to put the hostess code in - ZX9NDVT4 (Note: This is important in order to get the hostess benefits). After completing the order, send me an email and let me know what you want for hostess dollars ($26) or what you would like to have for your 1/2 price item, depending on which hostess benefit is drawn for your name. Once all 10 hostesses have ordered, I will draw the names for both the 1/2 price items and the hostess dollars and order them. As soon they arrive I will get them out to you! The biggest advantage in ordering this way is that your order will come straight to you! Also, you can order this way even if you are across the country, or not anywhere local to me! Yippee! When you order online with the hostess code, your order is delivered right to your door and it will ship right away.

SHOP WITH KELLY - click here for my online store using this hostess code ZX9NDVT4:

Screen Shot 2011-09-17 at 10.57.34 AM

OR

2. Send your order to me in an email (kelly@astampabove.com). I will place it for you. Be sure to indicate what your choices are for either the $26 hostess dollars or the 1/2 price offer. Depending on what hostess benefit is drawn for your name, I will order your hostess benefits, and let you know when your order is ready for pick up at my home.

 

DEADLINE IS SUNDAY, JUNE 29TH

- NO EXCEPTIONS

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 7.52.55 PM

EVERYONE WILL BE A HOSTESS!! (Hostess benefits are based on ten $100 (or more!) orders. Benefits MAY increase or decrease depending on how many are participating~ we need to have 10 hostesses for all this work... so ~ invite your friends to participate! I will place the names of all participants in a hat and pick who gets which benefits.

Drawing will be as follows for the $1,000 Catalog event:
*** 6 (six) people will receive $26.00 in free merchandise from the new Catalog. That's better than having a $150.00 workshop~ for only $100.00!!! WOW! Have you seen the new hostess stamp sets? I think they are the best yet! And you can only get them with Hostess Dollars!

*** 4 (four) people will get a half price item of choice.
You could get a Big Shot for half price ... a $50.00 savings, or a set of Stampin' Write Markers at half price saving over $54.00, or a whole family of stamp pads for half price, saving $25.00, or any of the the new Big Shot dies for for half price! WOW!

Feel free to place your entire order on one order (if you're including friends), or do separate orders. Or just write it down and I will make out the order form for you. Or just email it to me. Shipping/Handling is 10% and tax is 5% of order amount. I can help you figure out the total if you like.

Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to be a hostess without having to clean your house and make snacks, or without having to order $150 of product! Sit back and look through the catalog and share it with friends. Orders will be picked up at my house, unless you ordered online.

Call or email me ASAP to let me know if you are planning on participating! REMEMBER.. EVERYONE IS A HOSTESS!

Don't have the new catalog? You can view it online (just click HERE) OR let me know and we can arrange for you to get one!

page2image19016

NOTE: Once there are 10 $100 hostesses, we will get a new HOSTESS CODE for the online orders. So, watch your inbox for that information.

A Gift for my MOM!!!

DSCN3816

Oh my...I was going through my photo gallery today and found these...I almost forgot to share this fabulous gift with you!!!!

I made a bunch of cards for my mom for her birthday - AND SHE LOVED THEM!!!!

DSCN3815

I used an empty Wood Stamp Set Case (did you know you can buy them!), put a pretty little belly band around it, hung a cutie patootie tag ne it and topped it off with a 3-D flower using the Sprial Flower Die!!!  A piece of SAB DSP was perfect - you just cut it and slip it in where the stamp set label would go.

A jumbo pearl in the middle of my flower was the perfect accent!

Now for my cards - Some of these photos I take myself...but I'm not a professional photographer and I'm usually pretty busy making cards - ya know!  I love looking around online for photos using GOOGLE IMAGES. I save them to my computer and upload them to Walgreens to print.  The best quality cards are printed in a Matte Finish - no fingerprints.  Some of the photos that I upload to print - are grainy...and I don't use those.  There's no way to know - so I only print one of each until I can pick them up and see what I get.

I cut my photos so I can mat them with a layer of cardstock to make them pop - like the black layer under this beautiful dandilion photo.  I also played around and added white embossed images to some of my photos this time.  That was a little tricky - if you try to heat it too long it will make the photo bubble.

It's so fun to play around with different mats and color combos, punches and greetings.  Below is a link to a few gorgeous sets I made a while back - I got pretty fancy with them:
