I’ve only got one little sneak peek from the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog on this card…I tried really hard not to add any, but I couldn’t help myself! I used the Beautiful Bunch and Bitty Banners stamp sets and a few Frosted Sequins to create my card to share today.
I must confess, I have always been afraid of alcohol based markers…I am not very good at coloring and the thought of using them has always made me panic a bit. But the Blendabilities from Stampin’ Up! made me take the plunge and give it a try. I used the new Blended Bloom stamp and, after watching a couple of training videos, I went to work. This is what I colored on my first try:
I used the Spiral Flowers Originals die from Stampin’ Up! to create a little gift box to share with you today. I filled the box up with little chocolates, chocolate and flowers…everyones favorite gifts!!
I saw a fabulous little Valentine made by Jen Shults using Washi Tape to make a tic-tac-toe board. You can see Jen’s card by clicking here. Since I loved the design, I created a very similar card using Stampin’ Up! products to share with you today. This card was really quick and fun to make!
I created a file folder card using the Flowerfull Heart stamp and Envelope Punch Board from Stampin’ Up! to share with you today. Patty Bennett did a fantastic video showing you how to create this type of card and you can see it here. I made a few modifications to the measurements that I’ve noted below, but the process for creating the card is the same. My card deign was inspired by Retrosketches #97.
One quick reminder, the Flowerfull Heart and all of the valentine promotion items that are currently available from Stampin’ Up! will only be available until Jan 27 so be sure to order them soon! To see all of the valentine promotion items, click here.
I used the Backyard Basics stamp set and Framelits and the Venetian Romance DSP from Stampin’ Up! to create my card share for today. I also pulled out the new Pretty Print Embossing Folder, one of my favorite items from the Holiday Catalog, to add a little texture.
My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 304 Sketch.

Today I’m sharing a card that I made with the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up! and the Make a Cake stamp set. My card design was inspired by the CAS-ual Friday 100 Tic Tac Toe Challenge. The challenge is to use all of the items in any row to create a clean and simple card. I chose the diagonal line with Birthday, Bling and Punches or Dies.
Today I’m sharing a card that I made with Stampin’ Up’s single Towels for Two stamp.

The design for this card was inspired by the Retrosketches #55 Challenge. Here is the sketch:
