I felt so honored yesterday when 5 gals from Ft. Lauderdale drove 3 hours across the state to take my "Sophistcated Little Dress" Card Class! It was great!!
From the left: Luke, Cara, me, Margaurita, SueAnn and the gal in green is my dear cousin, Lynn!
This neckline was created with the 1 3/8" Square Punch and Scallop Square Punch insert. You can request the Dress Class for your group of four or more in the Charlotte County area of Florida. I'd love to share with you!
This is a 3X6" format featuring Attic Boutique Designer Series Papers. Notice the Pearl layers perfectly onto the sweet Flower Brad! This card fits into Stampin' Up!'s Small Open-End Envelope. Give this format a try!
Nancy's Birthday Card Contest deadline is Wednesday! Winner will be announced this THURSDAY!
This is such a fun, quick gift idea! This is an empty stamp case - and yes, Stampin' Up! sells them 4 for $5.95 on page 205. The plastic case cover is loose so you can easily slip in a stylish sheet of Designer Series Paper. I added a Blossom Punch flower with brads in the center.
Rhinestones add the touch of BLING! Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st so make sure you have placed your "stock up" order and received free product for every $50 ordered!
Spring has arrived! Try embossing Vellum Cardstock, like I did here using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. It's a lovely frosted effect! I added the Bird Builder Punch, sponging the edges of the bird.
Nature Walk Stamp Set is perfect for March! I love all these different eggs and our familiar Robin. These colors are Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze, a soothing combo.

Nancy Ferb, 15 year Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator
This is my Gandma's Sewing Lamp and I sooo happy I have it! I needed a new lampshade so I embellished a plane white shade with Yo Yos. Yesterday I taught you how to make Yo Yos quick and easy with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
For balance, I needed a top treatment. I attached fabric to the peel-and-stick Big Shot Adhesive Sheets and then cut a scallop from Tasteful Trim Die. That created a "Fabric Sticker" I could simple peel and stick to the top edge. Last, another row of Pleated Ribbon.
I think Grandma would LOVE it and be happy I have her little sewing lamp in my Stamp Room to enjoy!!
Have you noticed Yo Yos are back? I have made hundreds of them in my lifetime and always hated cutting those circles one-at-a-time. I wanted to do a Yo Yo project and knew my FABULUOS Big Shot would be a huge time saver! I used the 3 1/2" circle die and laid my Stampin' Up! fabrics on the die in a zig-zag fashion. I cut about 6 at a time - SO EASY, SO FAST!!
Here is a PREVIEW of the sweet Bright Blossoms Stamp Set which will be available in the APRIL Special. Calypso Coral really POPS the color on the Paper Doily Die layer!
This is such a FRESH look for Spring!
I'm going to love sending this CHEERY birthday greeting! The Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper is TASTY!!
The NEW Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored makes a PERFECT envelope every time! Get your's HERE!
Notice the peeking edge of the Ruffled Pool Party Ribbon! A SWEET detail!
Just one of many benefits of being a demonstrator is getting products EARLY!! So FUN!! Join my Stampin' Up! demonstrator family NOW during Sale-A-Bration and SAVE! This is the BRIGHT BLOSSOMS stamp set that will be in the next big catalog. It's one SWEET set!! Here I chose a simple, clean style.
Notice the Ruffled Pool Party Ribbon with just a tiny edge showing! A simple touch of texture! SURPRISE: this stamp set will be available to purchase during SUMMER SMOOCHES Special April 1-30! That's NO April Foolin'!!
I want to show a new friend what my passion is so I created 4 simple notes to give her as a gift! She was born in Florida so I chose the stamp set of four images called Plant Hope.
I used the handy pre-packaged Notes and Envelopes. Then I grabbed the jumbo InColor Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack for some interest on the note fronts and envelope flaps. Cards make wonderful gifts - give some today!
This sweet, "messy" little flower is simple! Start with Stampin' Up! Seam Binding and roll it into a ball in your palms. Scrunch it up so it's wrinkled. Punch out a cardstock circle slightly smaller than the finished size of the flower you desire. Cover your circle lightly with Towbow Liquid Glue. Press small sections of ribbon into the glue, holding a moment with a bone folder tip till it adheres, then add a little more and repeat around the circle till it's well covered. Add an embellishment in the center. Viola!
Maureen inspired this card - I LOVE the softness of Pool Party and Sahara Sand colors!! The image is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item when you purchase $50...quick, before March ends!!
After stamping the lower part, I ran it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to give LOTS of interest!!
I'm going to use this for Door Prizes so I cut a hole in the top. However, that might not be necessary for your purpose. This would be a great container for crayons, craft supplies, clothes pins, barettes, ETC. Give it a try!!
