Star of Light for #tttc024

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #024.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Jeanie Stark.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the three squares diagonal from the left bottom to the right top of the center of the board using Greeting, Elegant and Circle!  I also added a little heat embossing for the greeting as well.
I used the Year of Cheer Design Series Paper along with the Star of Light Bundle for some added elegance. Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project...

IF YOU MISSED IT . . . the reservation window for the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool was filled (approximately 27000 of them) in about 10 minutes. 
I am so sorry if you missed out.  Be ready!  
The next window to reserve begins Dec. 5.  More details here.

Christmas Quilt for #GDP113

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP113.  This week is a fabulous color challenge.  Whether your project is Christmas-themed or showcases these colors in some other way, it is so much fun to play along.
I used the Christmas Quilt Bundle for this card.  I love how much fun it is to build you own creation with the beautiful framelits.  I also used the Quilt Top Embossing Folder for added texture.  I found it was pretty easy to make a beautiful card with this bundle and you will too :)  Here are all of the Stampin' UP! products I used on this project:

On Stage Highlights!

I had a fabulous time with friends, fellow demonstrators and Stampin’ Up! staff at the On-Stage event in Salt Lake City this past week.  Highlights included rewards and recognition, new product reveals (including the new Stamparatus) and a chance to pre-order from the Occasions Catalog (as well as earn Sale-A-Bration freebies).  The customer sale period for both begins Jan. 3, 2018.  
Stampin’ Up! did a wonderful job honoring demonstrators with recognition and rewards.  I’m so grateful to my customers, team and stamping friends.  I ended up being #73 overall globally (that’s the whole wide world of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators) and #37 overall in the United States!
I also get to celebrate with three members of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Community being in the Stampin’ Up! Global Top 100, too!  Congrats to Mary Fish #6Brian King #24 and Susan Itell #100.

All members of my Stamping Serenity Team will receive a random new item from the Occasions Catalog as a gift from me.  I’m so proud of all of them and consider them my stamping family!

It's the Stamparatus!!!!

This Stampin’ Up! video demonstration gives you an up close look at the features and benefits of the Stamparatus.
THE STAMPARATUS IS COMING!  One of the biggest moments of the On-Stage event was when CEO Sara Douglass introduced the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus stamp positioning tool.  We were over the moon with the possibilities and genius put into making this the best stamp positioning tool on the market. 

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement
  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp

Pals November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals November 2017 Blog Hop featuring some “Anything But A Card”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals wow you with projects like home decor items, gifts and 3-D items or maybe even some card sets.  Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
For this 3D project I made these cute mitten ornament tags with the Smitten Mittens Bundle from Stampin' Up!  This fun stamp set and matching dies make it so easy to get the perfect pair of mittens.  There is a variety of decorating options to use as well.  I found that the Quilted Christmas DS Paper stack was just the right color match.
Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on December 13, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We really like that.

Merry Cafe' For #GDP112

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP112.  This week we are CASEing a gorgeous project by one of the GDP's very own - the oh so talented Connie Collins.  Here is the project this week that we are CASEing.
Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.  To play along, head over to the Global Design Project.  
I decided to case the theme of Connie's card - Fall!  This color trio works so well with a Merry Cafe' coffee themed fall card.  I have to say there is always that line between those that love pumpkin spice and those that do not.  Which side do you fall on?  I have to admit, I like a Peppermint Mocha a lot better than Pumpkin Spice :)  
It's always fun to find a stamp set that offers a variety of sentiments for different Holidays.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! items I used for today's project:
