I was so excited on how this card came out! I even tackled doing a reflection!
Here are some of the cards that I show at the end that you might want to see closer!
I made this one after looking at this photo i found online:
Here’s another card I made:
I saw a card like this online, but couldn’t find it again. I pretty much copied it! I did change a little in the sky, but the rest I kept. If you happen to see this card please let me know so I can give credit.
This is also from the same person, this is where I learned HOW to make the Scenes! Again, if you see or know who made the original, please let me know! I did add some Glitter & Clear Epoxy Dots to make the rain look more real!

Today is Tuesday!! Today I am going to share with you a REALLY cute project that I’m sure you have seen around……..I JUST made it after Christmas with my team members and I LOVED it! They did a class for our team, and I got to come and be a Student!! It was so much fun and I am TRYING to get them to do it again! LOL
The one we did with them was a regular coffee theme and it was stinkin’ cute! Those little cups are darling!
For my Technique this time I wanted to do something that ANYONE would love to get! It is so full of love I just had to share!
The Belly Band can hold a gift card behind the cup. It has the Sentiment ‘You Fill me with Happiness’, and of course I filled the cup with Chocolate! The sentiment comes from the SU! stamp set Jar of Love. The DSP is Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it has Gold Foil Accents throughout the paper! This paper is stunning in person! I had a hard time cutting into it…….just had to keep reminding myself that “It’s just paper”! LOL I’m sure I am not the ONLY one who does that!
On the video I will have all the dimensions for the project, and you can see how it was made. IF you really want to see the glimmer and glam check out the video! NEXT week I’ll show you a quick and easy way to make the Gift Card Holder using your own Designer Paper!!
You just came from Laurie Meier’s blog, she’s great isn’t she? I am Thankful for Melissa Kerman for giving me inspiration!
I got this idea from her at our NC Demo Quarterly (see below for details). We had a tag swap, which stupidly I didn’t join. :-/ Live and learn, right? Well, she made this awesome tag with Santa’s legs coming out of the chimney. Here is a picture of it:
I wanted to make a card from the tag, and this is what I came up with:
I used the Heart punch (which I didn’t know Melissa used, until I really looked at the boots, and was AMAZED!) and she free cut the pants, so I did that too. The Chimney I changed up some, I added some roof so I could put ‘snow’ on the edges. I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper and cut thin wavy strips to give the snow effect. I stamped the background with the Snowflake stamp from the Stampin’ Up! set called Snow Place. The Jolly is a framelit from Christmas Greetings. LOVE how I used a white gel pen to put ‘snow’ on the word, then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on top. In person this card looks so sparkly and pretty!!
The ribbon is the Whisper White Mini PomPom Trim! Even though this is all Christmas I got everything out of the current SU! catalog!
This is a list of everything I used:

Whisper White #101731

NC Demos is a group in North Carolina that gets together all over the state and we have ‘meetings’. Really it’s a great get together where ideas are shared and we stamp ALL DAY!! We learn a lot from each other and go home energized to play/work!
It’s great to meet other stampers, especially close to home!
If you live in North Carolina you can be a member too, as long as you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask! We really are a GREAT group!!
