As mentioned in my email several days ago, here are some cards that use some of the sets or punches mentioned in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Sales Special that lasts for one week only -- November 23 - 30, 2009. (Information about special sent 11/23 by e-mail.) Many of you will remember most of the cards -- we've done them in workshops or they were on the table as samples. And if you're one of my out of town friends, you may have seen some of them in previous posts, but there are a few samples I don't think you've seen.
This card is made with the Love You Much Stamp Set listed with the Heart to Heart Bundle. I just used a marker to ink the "V" and the flower on the LOVE stamp, then put a button over the flower with a glue dot. This card also shows a simple, flat bow just be looping a piece of ribbon and glue dotting each end down, then looping another strip of ribbon over the middle, and then glue dotting it to the strip of ribbon on the card.
The Heart to Heart punch (all 3 in one punch), also in the Heart to Heart Bundle and also offered by itself at the end of the sales chart, was used on this card. The hearts were punched out of the white and then the white was layered over Real Red cardstock. (The hugs and kisses image is from the All Holidays stamp set - not a part of this sale.)
The Love You Much Stamp set (listed in the Heart to Heart Bundle) was used on this Hidden Message card. Above is the front of the card. It is a also a gatefold card that we learned.
Then -- you open the card another way, and this is the Hidden Message -- i.e., Inside 2 of the card. It's a card you would need to hand to someone and then show them how to open it -- or, as I saw done with another type of card -- you would need to send them some directions telling them how to open the card to see the hidden message.
This was a favor done early in the year - using the Love You Much set again as you can see. It was a triangle Hershey Kiss holder.
This card was CASED. The Simply Said stamp set (listed in the Simply Said Bundle) was used here and then the flowers were just covered up with star brads.
The card above and the card below are made with the Fresh Cut stamp set and the Fresh Cut Notes -- they are square note cards 4" x 4". This stamp set and these notes are listed under the Fresh-Cut Bundle on the Sales chart. The cards are different depending on where you stamp the images and what you put behind the flower die cut on the note card. The image on the front of the green card below is behind the die cut on the pink card above.
This was a Father's Day sample card using one of the images from the Eight Great Greetings stamp set, which is listed in the Ultimate Stampers' Starter Bundle. The brown felt ribbon is still available under the Clearance Rack (under Shop Now on my Stampin' Up! demonstrator website). This ribbon is listed as Alpine Ribbon Originals - there are three 8 foot rolls in the package -- one roll of striped grosgrain and two rolls of the brown felt. I really like the brown felt ribbon for masculine cards. Clearance Rack items can be ordered online only.) The set of 3 spools is $6.99.
The Cheep Talk stamp set was used on this Wiper Card. The front of the card is above, and below is the card pulled out so that the little wiper part comes up. This stamp set is listed in the Cheep Talk Bundle.
This is the monogram cards we did one Saturday at Stamp Club - we used the Lovely Letters stamp set that is one of the two sets listed under the Alphabet Bundle. We stamped the letters in Encore Gold ink. Brushed Gold cardstock is layered with Basic Black. This Lovely Letters set is one alphabet set I've really been enjoying using - I love the little decorative part of the letters!
