Card Candy

I have started a new swap with other Stampin' Up Demonstrator for Card Candy and I want to explain and show some of the candy so they could see what it was all about. Card Candy is embellishments that you can remove and use on your cards or scrapbook pages. The card candy embellishment gets Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of it and stuck to wax paper that way it peels off. You place that into a cello bag and put a topper on top that says "Card Candy". My customers love it. It is easy to use when you are make a card. You have your card stock folded and you just add your card candy and there is your finished card. I just started making it this summer and I love to see what everyone comes up with. I use it at my workshop as a gift to my customers when the place an order. It is always neat to see what people like.

My Christmas Stamp a Stack

These are the 5 cards I am doing for my next 2 Stamp a Stacks in October. I have been in a lot of swaps over the summer and I have gotten some great stuff. Two of the cards I received in a swap. The Christmas tree I received from Carol Slack. I have changes her card a little but she gave me great ideas for the silver and the blue. I just love that card. The Let it Snow card I received in a swap from Brenda Witt. I love the bold snowflake wheel and the Big on Christmas stamp set. They went together perfect. The Santa card with the bow I found on Splitcoasterstamper and it was made by Troublesmom. I couldn't find her fun candy but I thought the bow went well with it. I also found cute light bulbs they will be able to use also. The Santa card I made has no stamping in it at all. I used all punches. The last card of the bunched, Happy Holidays, I used glossy paper and the new jumbo eyelets. They works so well with the Crop-A-Dile. That is all for now, let me know what you think. If you want to sign up for the class just send me an email.

Grey Christmas Card

My up line Janet had a meeting and this was one of our make -n-takes. It was very easy to do and turned out so pretty that I decided to use it as a make-n-that at my next workshop. My customers really liked it. I would of never thought of using the Charbon Designer Series Paper for a Christmas card. I really like the basic gray paper. And you get 40 sheets. That makes a lot of cards! It also featured the Pretties Kit. I just love the rhinestone brads. It also used the new Taffeta Ribbon. Let me know what you think.

Oh So Lovely Card

I love this card. The cute little bee buttons I got at Micheal's. I am making this card at a workshop this weekend. This card has the new colors (Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky) and the new hostess level one set (Oh So lovely). It also uses Stem Sayings stamp set. I colored it in with an aqua painter.

Season's Greetings

I am starting on Christmas cards. This is one of the cards I have made for a customer. The glitter really looks good on the tree.

Scratch and Sniff

This is a scratch and sniff card I just made. I used orange kool aid with embossing powder and make it stick with versamark reinker.

It smells so good!
