Good morning, and welcome to my stop along the SUDSOL Blog Tour this morning! I hope you're enjoying the tour so far!
What is SUDSOL? It stands for Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing On Line! And, that's it in a nutshell! We do weekly challenges, share business ideas (and the forms!!), class ideas (with instructions!!), and tons of samples!! I would be lost without all these ideas!

Now, how about some projects!!!
My first is a fun frame I made for a great friend! We both live here in Albuquerque, but met at a Stampin' Up! convention a million years ago!! (Hi Lani!):
I started with a sheet of the More Amore Designer Paper--and chose colors to go with that! I used Pool Party for the front "frame" and the letters (cut out using the Big Shot and Typeset Alphabet Dies). The little heart was made using the Big Shot and the Hearts a Flutter framelits. I also embossed it with the Adorning Accents Embossing Strips. I also embossed the two sides of the Pool Party frame, but it's hard to see in the picture!!
One of my favorite items from the Spring Catalog is the Swallowtail Stamp!! I just think it is beautiful! Here's a fun card using it:
The card base is Melon Mambo, followed by a layer of Basic Black. I stamped the Swallowtail in versamark ink directly onto my First Edition Designer Paper, then embossed with Melon Mambo Embossing Powder. I added some accents along the side: first a strip of our new Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon, then 3 butterflies punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch. This is the one in the "big" catalog. I stamped three in Basic Black, then three out of Vellum cardstock. I ran those through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder for added texture. I finished them off with 3 tiny pearls each! Fun and pretty!
My last card is super simple!!!
We made this card at my Diva Days in January! My downline has chances to win the honor of attending this special stamp camp! We made three projects, and enjoyed brunch together!
This stamp set is called Feeling Sentimental, and is a Sale-a-bration item--which means you can earn it FREE!! I stamped the phone booth in Black Stazon, and the sentiment using our Classic Real Red ink. The ovals were cut using the Big Shot (what did we ever do without these!!) and the new Ovals Collection Framelits. Easiest way to do this--cut the ovals out, then stamp right through the "hole"!! perfect placement everytime!
I hope you enjoyed my projects!! Don't forget to sign up for your FREE Two Week Trial to SUDSOL!!
These were made from a coaster!! Yep, just like the ones you get at a restaurant! I just covered mine with some fabulous designer paper from the Print Poetry Stack!! Love it!! Colors are Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green!! And, what about those rhinestones?!! They're the new Large Rhinestones from the Spring Catalog!
Every six months, I offer a Diva Days for my group of demonstrators! They have to earn an invite, based on sales, recruiting, etc! (it's pretty easy to earn!) Then, we get together and have brunch, then stamp away! Here's one of the projects we made on Saturday:
I used the new designer paper stack, Print Poetry, along with the Artistic Etchings Stamp Set. Colors are Raspberry Ripple and Basic Black!! The ribbon serves as a book mark! Fun, I though!! Oh, the books--I think I got them at Michaels!

I love my clubs--these ladies have become my friends, and we always have a great time! Our current round of clubs finished up in November (we start again in January!), so I wanted to do a fun class just for them!! They didn't have to purchase anything--just show up and stamp!! Here are the three things we made:
This is a fun hot chocolate slider! If you pull on the ribbon, it pulls the hot cocoa packet up!! I love all the sparkle!!
I saw a similar ornament on Stampin' Connection (our demo sharing site!), and just had to try it!! It's also very sparkly!!
and finally, we made the bows, using the wonderful instructions that Stampin' Up! is including with orders:
This was my favorite project!! I love these little bows!
I have just one spot left in my Monday Card Club. If you're interested, you can see all the details HERE.
Good morning!! We made this fun gift card holder at Patsy's workshop in November! All the ladies loved it, so I thought I would share it with you!
It's really just a Medium Very Vanilla envelope folded in half, and embellished!! Here's the inside, so you can see what I mean:
So, all you do--fold the envelop in half, and crease with your bone folder. Then, open it up and cut a slit in the flap of the envelope, along the fold line. "Seal" the left half of the flap closed. Then, stamp and embellish! Here are the measurements I used:
For the front:
Gumball Green cardstock: 2 3/4" x 4 1/4", scrap for Decorative Label Punch (punch, then cut in half and adhere to back of sentiment to create the mat)
Be of Good Cheer Designer Paper: 2 1/2" x 4"
Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon: about 20"
For the inside:
Cherry Cobbler cardstock: 2 1/2" x 4"
Very Vanilla cardstock: 2 3/8" x 3 7/8"
I used the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set for both the sentiment and the inside--makes it just a bit more festive!!
So, go make some gift card holders!! LOL!!
