Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

I absolutely love this Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card, it’s just one of those that makes my heart happy!

Start with a Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″ to create a portrait card.  Cut the Very Vanilla layer at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp your leaves onto this layer. I like to start with the lightest color in triple step stamping.  For the single leaves in between I used the two lightest colors and stamped off first! See the video tutorial below!

Once the stamping is done wrap the vanilla ribbon around and attach to the base.  Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla and punch out.  Punch out another piece in Mint and cut that one in half lengthwise to create a frame.  Pop up and add a knot.  Remember, make the envelope pretty!

Here is the Video Tutorial:

Catalog Premier Party & End of Stampin’Up year Sale

Catalog Premier Party & End of Stampin’Up year Sale

Catalog Premier Party & End of Stampin'Up year Sale

Oh my goodness!  I had a blast at my Catalog Premier Party & End of Stampin’Up year Sale!  Every year I do a chocolate fountain and all the goodies!

This is a great opportunity to treat my stampin’ friends with some free Make n’ Takes and some yummy goodness.  Not to mention that it’s a great opportunity to get a great deal on outgoing sets and tools that I am letting go to a good home.  This year I really purged!  Some sets were very hard to see go!

Cat Crew Party Table

 

This year we had our monthly Creative Cat Crew meeting right after the shopping madness started dying down.  It was nice to set a pretty table for the ladies who are my closest Stamping partners in crime ( I mean creativity!)  I love that we are starting to get a great group of swapping ladies together and sharing ideas!  I really wanted to play some games, but with the craziness of the day we had to settle for a random drawing for free Stampin’Up! gifts!  Too bad…lol…

It was great to see some ladies outside my monthly gatherings and I made small favor bags for everyone too!  Had a blast! PS.  A special thank you to my friend Libby who remembered to take the pictures for her absent minded fearless Cat Crew leader (me)!
