Brown Bag Embossing- Petite Pretties

Did you know you can emboss a brown paper sack?
 
Yep, you can! What a great way to liven up a cheap gift bag!!
 
 
I made this bag for the Leadership boards earlier in the month and it features the adorable Petite Pretties stamp set.
This set also coordinates with the Petite Curly label Punch!
 
It is embossed with the Vine Street Embossing Folder. All three of these items are FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale A Bration!
 The bag topper is layered with a Regal Rose Window Framelit, a Melon mambo Peek a Boo Frame, a Vine Street Embossed Whisper White Full Heart Punch, and a Pretty in Pink Striped Grosgrain Bow. The sentiment is from Tiny Tags.

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

But, c'mon!! If it's a stamp and it's from Stampin' Up, I don't care who is directed at! I still want it!!
So, I got it! And, I challenged myself to use it to make something non-manish. It wasn't hard! these stamps are CUTE!
Stamps: Dude, You're Welcome, Fabulous Phrases
Ink and Paper: Lucky Limeade, Real Red, In Color DSP
Other: Simply Scored, Simply Scored Border Plate, Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Small Heart Punch, Real Red Striped Ribbon

So, yes, this kit would make a fun gift for any Dude! I'm thinking Bosses Day! yea, I don't ever know what to get my boss!! This would be perfect! Or, even for Valentine's day for that special man in your life! Or, how about just because YOU want it!

My Paper Pumpkin...kicked up a notch!

Do you know what's inside a Paper Pumpkin?

I was so excited at Leadership when they announced the new Stampin' Up kit Club called My Paper Pumpkin. I was even more excited when I got one for FREE! Here is the picture of the contents (as taken in my hotel room!)



This kit is great for the beginner stamper or even the stamper who doesn't have much time or room to store lots of "stuff." The first Welcome Kit comes with enough supplies to make 4 simple cards. It also includes an ink pad and a clear block!


Now, when I got my kit out last week, I, like I always do, couldn't just do it the easy way! No, not me! I wanted to "step outside the box" so to speak! I thought how can I kick this kit up a notch for those of us who want just a little more...

So, below, you will see my 4 "Kicked Up Paper Pumpkin" cards. The only thing I added was scrap cardstock and DSP. Seriously, just scraps!!


Oh, and a little FREE (sale A Bration) ribbon...


So, as you can see, the Paper Pumpkin is for both the simple, basic stamper AND the more advanced stamper who wants a little more frills and variety! For 19.99, this kit can't be beat! 

I hope you will give it a try! It's a month to month commitment, so if you get your kit and decide it's not for you, you can cancel anytime. or, you can keep it and challenge yourself each month to create something "kicked up" each month!!

Sign up HERE. And, please choose me Erica Cerwin, as your demonstrator! Email me when you do so that I know you have signed up and I'll send you a special thank you to help kick up your cards!

Chinese New Year Love- FMU 94

TGIF! It's been a short week, but it seems like it's been a hectic week! So glad it's Friday and that means it's time for The Friday Mash Up!
I struggled a little with this challenge. It really took me out of my comfort zone! But, that makes it a good challenge, right?
Image Source
 

  1. Make a project with a "Chinese New Year (Year of the Snake) Theme".
  2. Or Make a project using the "Paper Lantern Technique".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project for the "Chinese New Year featuring the Paper Lantern Technique".

My oldest daughter is obsessed with Pandas right now! So, I used this opportunity to make her a Valentine's Day Card. I created a big Punch Art Panda using the new Oval Framelits and few punche!
 
And, the big guy is holding a heart created with the Paper Lantern Technique!I used the Love You stamp from the single stamps that were offered in the fall. I meant to add a bow... but I must have gotten distracted. And, you can't see it very well, but there is a tiny silver heart in the middle of the O.
 
So, step out of your comfort zone people and give this challenge a try! Make sure you check out the other designers for more inspiration and ten show us yours!
Link up with us at The Friday Mash Up

Are you on Team Summer Starfruit?

But, not me! This color is trendy...VERY trendy! If you are a shopper, you see this color everywhere! I love it! Now, it's not your butter yellow... No. It has a special place in design. But, pair it with Cherry Cobbler or Night of Navy and  Oh. My. Show stopper! Give it a try!! C'mon.. become a
 Summer Starfruit Believer!!
 
My next sample using the Sale a Bration set called Madison Avenue is a card that features that Summer Starfruit as well! I think it really makes the raspberry Ripple bow pop! The flowers are easy to line up with the clear block or Stamp a Ma Jig. You can get this set for FREE right now during Sale a Bration!
