NEW Stampin' Up! Wood Mount Cases

I usually only order my stamps in clear mount because of storage and I love the way they look uniform and neat.  Well now I can get that same look with the new Stampin' Up! Wood Mount Cases.  I love that they stand up nice and I even downloaded the label for the wood stamp set, added the stamp set image and now they look great next to my clear mount cases.  They look so neat and clean that now I want to redo all my wood mount cases!

More card ideas around the craft room...

More ideas and samples from my craft room.  I have a monthly stamping class and I get together with my fellow demonstrators once a month, so I have tons of ideas to share.  Sometimes I look around and an old project seems new again.  I love the use of the DSP squares on this simple card.  This DSP is retired, but it can be interchanged with any of the new Stampin' Up! DSP available.

June Stamping Class

I had my monthly stamping class last night.  Stamping classes are always a lot of work to put together between the project ideas and the cutting and prepping.  But...  they are also so much fun.  Hope you enjoy the projects from my June class.  Love the way the 4th of July cards came out.

Paper Clip Bows

I had a lot of fun creating these adorable paper clip bows.  I had to try them once I saw them in the NEW 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.  The girls coming to my stamping class tonight will get these as a freebie.

My Favorite NEW Things from the New 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Catalog

The new Stampin' Up! catalog is so artistically inspiring, as well as loaded with so many gorgeous stamp sets and samples and tons of new accessories.  The catalog also has some great step by step samples on Card designs featured in the catalog.  Love that!  It was difficult to pick all my favorites...  these are just a few.


Happy Day Stamp Set:   This set has both a vintage and a modern look. 

Label Love Stamp Set:  Love this stamp set because of the variety of designs and the greetings are simple and great.  The big bonus is you can buy the coordinating Label Punch to make it super easy.

Big Shot Magnetic Platform:  This is the most anticipated addition to the Stampin' Up! accessories.  I think this is going to make my life so much easier.  It's incredible for keeping my Framelits right where I need them!

Delicate Details Lace Tape:  I can't wait to use this embellishment...  I think it's going to add so much to any simple card or project.  What a great idea!!

New In Colors:  Last, but certainly not least are the new in colors...  you may not be able to see the potential from this photo of the colors, but the Crisp Cantaloupe is so pretty and looks so amazing with our Early Espresso and the Strawberry Slush and the Coastal Cobana are so pretty...  I love them all!!

Yummy Cup Treats

These are the free treats I gave away at one of my recent stamping classes.  I love the way the cups come out wrapped in DSP.  You can make these by unravelling a Dixie cup and you can use that as your template to trace on DSP and cut.  Then you cover a new cup with the DSP, decorate and fill the cup with candy.

Because I Care Frame...

I made this frame a while ago with a friend.  I can't remember where we got the idea from.  I wish I remembered so I could mention her blog.  We used one of those wood frames you can buy at Michael's and we used Stampin' Up! DSP and then we use the "Because I Care" stamp set for the flower leaf.  The flower was made by cutting a round Styrofoam ball in half and then we covered the ball with the flower from the Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  After punching out a bunch of little flowers we used tiny pins to hold the flowers in place.  Lastly we lightly sponged the flowers with Bermuda Bay to match the DSP.

Cards in My Craft Room

I wanted to showcase some of the cards and projects I've made before I had my blog (used to be on stampintildawn.typepad).  These are some of my favorites hanging in my craftroom.  I will post some cards every other day or so.  I hope you enjoy these projects and I hope they inspire you.

Butterflies Die Cut and embossed with white embossing powder. Red Riding Hood, Espresso and White.

Punched butterflies on Pink Pirouette, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink cardstock.  Card squares almost look like a paint chip strip.

Feeling Sentimental..

I'm feeling sentimentsl about this set...  This is one of the cards I made with this year's Sale-a-bration stamp set "Feeling Sentimental".  I know that SAB was a while ago, but I still love this set.  I wish it was in the new catty..  Even the DSP is from Sale-a-bration... 


Details:  White, Black and Rich Razzleberry cardstock, 12x12 Sycamore Street DSP (SAB), Rich Razzleberry Ink., Rhinestones, Feeling Sentimental (SAB) stamp set.
