Scallop Circle Dress

 DSC06866
Each month I hand stamp a card and send it to my Top Ten Demonstrators in sales in my team...the Definitely Diva Stampers.  This is the card I stamped for them this month.  Congratulations to the Top Ten Diva's for January!

I also made this card for my swap for Regionals...since it takes an entire 6 x 6 sheet of DSP to make, I ended up making a variety.  It was so fun to decide which pattern to use for the purse and the dress.  The dress is cut out with the Scallop Bigz Die.  The purse is made using the Tab Punch, the 1-3/4" x 7/8" Oval and the 1-3/8" x 5/8" Oval pucnh.

Create a Cupcake Card

I just love when a punch matches a stamp set.  The Create a Cup Cake Stamp Set comes in both Wood or Clear . While I like to cut things out, my cutting skills aren't always the greatest and the coordinating  Build a Cup Cake Punch makes it so easy.  Just like the owl punch I can't wait to see all the creative ideas that come with the Cupcake Punch.  Here is the cute card we made at my last workshop.  Hope you get a chance to stamp with me soon!

Here are some fun cards made using the 2-step Owl Punch who knew it could be so much more than an owl.  These are the cards we made at my February Punch Class.  I did not come up with these amazing ideas.  When I see and owl I see and owl,  I admire those that can see so much more and think outside the box.  I am trying and hope to someday. Want to join me for our next punch class, just email me

Clearly for You!

This card was cased from one shared by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lisa Young.  Love the layout, colors and it is a great way to use the fun new Adornments featured in the Occasions Mini!   The stamp set used is Clearly for You, also featured in the mini catalog.  I have loved sharing this card with my customers at workshops and excited to share it with those that haven't made it yet.

Don't you just love the Tulip Border  and the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper all found in the mini catalog.  Don't miss these items.  The Occasions Mini is only good until April 30, 2011.
