Fabulous Piercing Templates

Good Day! One of the fantastic new products in the Idea Book & Catalog are the NEW Piercing Templates right now there are only 2 sets, but I'm sure Stampin' Up! will be adding more to this fantastic line of Stampin' tools. Here is my project for this week--

I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (#126187) and the new Stampin' Pierce Mat (#126199). The Pierce Mat is twice as large as the old, which works great for this Faux Stitching technique-- draw a line on both side of the strip using the white gel pen, use the straight line of holes in the Template and pierce a line over the top of the gel pen. Pretty easy and lots of fun!

Thank-you for stopping by and make sure you go over to the Sister in Stamping blog to see what the other girls are "piercing."

Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

Fabulous Christmas Wheels

It's another Fabulous Friday over at the Sisters in Stamping blog where we are featuring wheels this week. Here is my card-- 
I used the Music Notes Wheel and the stamp set Beautiful Season. I tried a new technique with the coloring of my little bird I used a marker in a lighter color (Certainly Celery for the holly leaves) and came back with a darker colored Water Color Crayon (Garden Green) to give it some depth. This technique is similar to Marker over Pencil shown here on this post. I'm going to be creating a lot of these cards for Christmas so I needed to make it quick and easy!
Thanks for stopping by, and go check out the Sisters blog to see some other great Wheel cards!
Happy Stamping-- Karla c(:
PS. I used some of the InColor satin stitched ribbon on my card that's on special this month. Only one more week to get your free spool of ribbon. Contact me today!

Scrapbook Pages for Friday

It's my week over at the Sisters in Stamping blog. I picked Back to School Scrapbook pages for the theme. Here is my page--

I used the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, I thought it was appropriate--kiss that Summer good-bye! The strips of paper are cut in 1" strips and I used the Pennant punch to make the pencil tips. Clever, eh? We will be making this 8x8 page at the next Mother Daughter Class on Wednesday. I thought it would make a great page to put class photo's on, you know the little ones that you trade with your friends. E-mail me if you live in the area and you'd like to attend.

    Go over to the Sisters blog and check out what the other girls are doing-- some very cool My Digital Studio stuff.

Happy Stamping!
