Tips for Assembling NEW Cling Red Rubber Stamps Video

In this video, I'll show you how to quickly assemble the new red rubber CLING stamps and store them in a way that makes it easier to remove them from your storage case later.  They are extra sticky, so you may need to run a tool such as the flat attachment of the Take Your Pick tool under the stamp to loosen it on occasion.

November Paper Pumpkin Wreath Kits

The November Paper Pumpkin kit made such cute wreath cards!  I wanted to wait to show them until most of my customers had received their cards, so everyone wouldn't have already seen it.

I hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright and that you are ready to see new items from the Occasions catalog soon!

More is More Monday Quick Tags! Make them to MATCH your paper!

The quick tag we made yesterday is enhanced today with either the Scalloped Tag Topper punch or Triple Banner punch and matching ribbon.

Or go "all out" and cut down the 4-1/4" X 2" stamped layer to 1-3/4" X 3-1/4", and layer the snowflakes onto a 4-1/4 X 2 inch piece of Real Red Cardstock that you've punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Add a snowflake matted on Real Red and a contrasting ribbon for a fun mod tag. A tiny rhinestone in the center finished the still rather simple tag.

Simple Sunday Christmas Gift Tag

As Christmas Day draws near, time is short for us all. Why not make your tags rather than buy boring stick on tags? For this Super Simple Sunday tag, my goal was to match my wrapping paper which was simple with Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped them all on a 4-1/4" X 10" sheet of Whisper White cardstock. Then, I cut them apart, put a dimensional on the back and a Real Red "To/From" label on the the front.  This, of course, can be done with any image that gives you that Holiday feel.

Check back for More is More Monday and see what I did with just a BIT more time.

More is More Monday Stepped Up Wreath Card

This card is so similar to yesterday's simple card, but it has added color in Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzazz on the greenery.  I just used the Wink of Stella as an Aquapainter and like the result. It does require more time to create though.

This Garnet Hill catalog cover was my inspiration for this card. The blues and greens were so nicely blended that I had to try to put those colors on a card.

Simple Sunday Wreath Stampin' Up! card

This card does require use of the Big Shot, but is so simple other than that. I offered it as a choice for my class attendees this past Thursday. You just go over the embossed wreath with Clear Wink of Stella, and add some embellishments for a quick card.
