Ok so we found this awesome restaurant in the airport. You place your order using an IPad and of course Richard was right at home with his sushi. Great meal with a Samuel Adams.

Technique for Today!

Are you addicted to texture? It’s okay to admit it, many stampers are! So we’ve created a 3-step program just for you!
• Step 1: With Core’dinations card stock you can take texture to a whole new level. The lighter colored monochromatic core of the Core’dinations card stock makes a huge impact when you sand, tear, distress, or emboss it. The Core’dinations card stock is available in three super-versatile colors; Early Espresso (#127848), Cherry Cobbler (#127846), and Gumball Green (#127847). Each single-color package includes 12 sheets of 12” x 12” Core’dinations card stock that is smooth on one side and lightly textured on the other.
• Step 2: In true Stampin’ Up! style we’ve also created the ideal coordinating tools to make using the Core’dinations card stock simple - the Stampin’ Sanding System! The Stampin’ Sanding Block (#129367) makes sanding easy with its soft, easy to hold shape that keeps your fingers protected and neat. One small side and one large side of the block are covered with hook-and-loop fasteners (Velcro™) making it easy to add, remove, and replace the sandpaper and to sand detailed or large areas. With the Sanding Block, you’ll receive 4 sheets of sandpaper (2 of each of 150 and 180 grits).
• Step 3: Once you’ve sanded and distressed the Core’dinations card stock, clean-up is a breeze with the Core’dinations Dust Buddy (#129366). Simply cut off a small square of the specially-designed tacky cloth and wipe up dust and residue to keep your craft area neat and help adhesives adhere better.
So get your Core’dinations card stock and Stampin’ Sanding System and go texture crazy. It’s not only okay, it’s encouraged!

A new Core’dinations Dust Buddy can have a strong aroma. Air out in a well-ventilated area for a day or two then return to the package for storage.

Christmas & the Evergreen Tree

Evergreen stamp set (#127970 wood mount, #127973 clear mount)
To early people, the evergreen was the symbol for eternity or something that perpetually renews itself. Likewise, you’ll find endless ways to use the silhouette, outline, and script images in the Evergreen stamp set. You will love the many variations of Christmas cards you can make with stamping, heat embossing, Stampin’ Dazzle Markers, and more. The somewhat abstract tree image lets you achieve looks from simple to over-the-top.

But what you may not have considered is how perfect the Evergreen stamp images are for those elusive masculine cards! Or use them to create notecards or thank you cards. The stamp set is also ideal for autumn and Thanksgiving themed cards. Talk about timeless! I think this is a stamp set you will turn to many times, year after year. So order your Evergreen stamp set today and get ready for perpetual creativity!
Use Stampin’ Dazzle Marker or heat emboss outline or script images for extra texture and impact!

Want to make an Easy Christmas Card ?

Wow! What a great class! I wanted to show the project I demonstrated at this class.

This is a candle I bought at a local store I applied one tag out of the snow festival designer printed tags on page 12. I punched out two cherry cobbler scalloped circle 1 3/4 " - I use the big shot die snow flurry on page 14 of the holiday mini to cut out the white snowflake and apply rhinestones.

This is the card I demonstrated . I folded a piece of whisper white card stock in half 4 1/4 x 11"- I applied with dimensionals one of the snow festival tags on page 12. I then punched out to scallop circles 1 -3/4" - and install them on top of the tag- tucked underneath the scallop circles is a 4 inch piece of Baja Breeze seam binding - cut out another snowflake assembled it using dimensional's- and put pearls on top.

I think it's oh wow! Give me some feedback and comments what do you think?
