Apron of Love Bundle with Brusho


What a cute set this is!  I made this card for a joint Pampered Chef and Stampin Up event "Make and Take". I thought it would be a cute reminder for everyone, not only with the cooking utensils in the pocket but the Stampin Up logo. I cut the logos from product bags but they also have 2 labels on each grid paper I use for classes and video's which fit on the large pocket of the apron.You could make invitations to a BBQ or make the card as a painters apron with splatters of color on it etc.. If you need any of the products to make this card click on the pictures below or click on the catalogs on the right for all the catalogs.

Petal Palette & More Thinlit Dies


I made the card on the right in Berry Burst for a swap organized by demonstrators in our team group before the actual Catalog came out for customers. Starting on the 15th March through the 31st March Stampin' Up is offering the Petals and More Thinlit Dies as a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice with a $100 purchase. So I thought I'd make a card to show you how beautiful it is. (The Petal Pair Embossing Folders are also part of Sale-A-Bration now as well...FREE with a $50 purchase).
This is part of a gorgeous suite of products available in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. The stamp set comes in 2 boxes for a total of 13 stamps, amazing to use the new Stampin Blends to color the images. The Petals and More Thinlit Dies have 10 dies), the Petal Pair Embossing Folders of course are a pair ...one is a stunning arrangement of flowers and the other is like bamboo leaves. The DSP is all black and white which you can also color with the Stampin Blends, there are embellishments and ribbon that co-ordinate beautifully too. An amazing Suite of products!
