Eastern Eclectic

Style Watch

I was inspired by some projects that I used in my Open House by incorporating the Style Watch Eastern Eclectic in the new Fall-Winter 2008-2009 Collection. I just love how these colors coordinate together.

I love the beautiful floral patterns of the stamp sets that reflects a certain Asian influence and the elegance that it brings to your projects.

Coordinating Colors are Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, More Mustard, So Saffron, Very Vanilla and Old Olive.

Coordinating Stamp Sets are Eastern Influence, Stitched Exotics, A Beautiful Thing, Eastern Blooms, Embrace Life.

My favorite stamp set_ Eastern Blooms

What's yours?

Cup of Tea

I coordinated the tea bag holder to coordinate
with my cup using the So Saffron, Tangerine Tango , Very Vanilla and Old Olive. I used the 1/2 inch Circle punch for the flowers and mounted them in dimensionals. I just love the Scallop Edge punch that gave this tea bag the bottom accent it needed.

Paper: So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron

size of the cup, scored and folded.

This is another card that is really easy and fun to make using the Square Scallop punch. I stamped the image first on Whisper White paper,

I'm Back and Totally...

Inspired !!! I have been really wanting to do some posting but work always get in the way. You know how that is. I even have a few inquiring minds asked me if I am okay. That is just so, so, so sweeeet !!!. Thanks for your patience. I hope today's post and the upcoming ones will make up for my absence.

Let me just start by sharing you
Stampin'UP's Statement of the Heart. I got this poster at the convention and I have the perfect spot for it in my stamping room.
Here is my own version of the Statement of the Heart_ To instill a little creativity in others and to enjoy the gift of creating is a worthy accomplishment.

I have been Bad !!!

Yes, I have and it is not even like me. I have all these projects I have been working on and have not been able to find the time to post them.

I have been so inspired with the recent Stampin'UP convention; even getting ready for my Open House to preview the new Fall/Winter catalog. I can't wait to show them to you.

Every year, I look forward to going to convention because every year I come home with lots of ideas and inspiration. Have you seen the new stamp sets and accessories? Who wouldn't be inspired? The Big Shot from Sizzix, the new Scallop Square, Scallop Edge and Wide Oval punches are just some of the new gadgets that I can't wait to get my hands on. What about the papers?The darling Designer Series Papers and the In Colors cardstocks that will surely make every card POP with just the right embellishment, be it a ribbon, a clip or a stylish brad. I also love the selection of Rub-Ons that they are offering in the catalog- pretty cool, huh ? I can just go on and on, so I am just going to let you feast your eyes on the new catalog because :


Open House for my Catalog Preview on August 23. (Anytime between 10 am to 4PM)

Just drop by, do a make and take , enjoy browsing on some Style Watch samples and make sure you bring a friend/s.

Gift Card Holder

A Different Kind of Fold
I designed this card for a convention swap that I signed
up for. This is a new set from the Fall/Winter Collection that I got called Party Hearty. The letter B for birthday was stamped in White craft pad using Real Red paper. I punched the present image using the 3/4 " circle punch and mounted it in dimensional. I wanted to add the red brads on the sides, so I used the 1/4" circle punch and glued them underneath the brads to emphasize them better. The background was stamped repeatedly in White Craft pad.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamps: Party Hearty, Big Bold Birthday
Paper: Real red, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Real Red,Regal Rose, So Saffron
Accessories: Red brads, red grosgrain ribbon
Tools: Circle punches, piercing tool

The main panel is cut at 31/3" x 41/2".

The white panel is cut 33/4" x 2".

Inside of the Card:

I used a 41/4 x 51/2 envelope,

scored at 11/2 inches on both sides.
