Stampin' Up is introducing "Simply Adorned" an exclusive line of charmes and chains.
Although any image can be used to embellish the charm, the "Charming" stamp set is the ideal size to make the elegant jewellery.
The card is the make and take from our downline meeting last night using a few images from the Charming stamp set. Thanks Jodie.
I can't wait to accessorize my next outfit with this beautiful piece of jewellery.
This will be perfect for Christmas gifts, bridesmaid gifts, birthdays and every special person on your gift giving list.

Ink: Soft Suede, Versa Mark

I remember when I fell in love with Stampin' Up! I was attending my first workshop and we made a simple card with a layer or two using cardstock, ink, stamps and I was hooked. Since that day I have made cards that are more complex, more embellishments, more layers, and more embellishments. It just seems natural to incorporate new techniques, ribbon, brads, buttons and the list goes on. Now don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with this, I love it.
Every once in a while I like to make a simple card, something that takes less time to whip up.
So by using only stamps, ink and paper this is what I came up with. You know, sometimes it is hard to resisit using the gorgeous ribbons, fabulous buttons, and brads Stampin' Up! offers:)
Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
Paper: Cottage Wall DSP, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence
Ink: Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry
I hope you like todays card. Remember, in order to get away and stamp each day, keep it simple.

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black
Embellishments: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Olive Dew Drops (not SU!), CUrly Label Punch, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches, dimensionals

Since I don't have the stamp set Exteme Guitar #115328 page 80 I thought I would make him a card I learned from Heather Summers Simply Punches 3. Justin loves music. Justin is a drummer and a good one at that and has been learning the guitar as well. This summer he is taking vocal lessons as well. We have a Rock Star in the making!
Now you are probably wondering how music and a robot came about right?! Justin likes all genres of music and yes even metal so I thought a heavy metal robot would be perfect.
This card has no stamping, just punches. The sentiments were typed up on the computer and punched out using the new modern label #116630 $22.95 and the word window punch # 105090 $22.95.
One thing I learned about using small shapes and a new craft white ink pad was to use a sponge for edging rather than dragging the cardstock through the ink pad ...it gets a bit messy.

This Thank You card was made by Kelly Fleming. Kelly used a variety of stamps from Eastern Bloom, Schoolbook Serif and Fundamental Phrases. The colours Kelly used look very nice together, Sage Shadow, Not QUite Navy, Sahara Sand and To the Nine DSP. I especially like the belly band around the card and when removed, reveals the sentiment "Thank U". Well Done Kelly.

Embellishments: Crushed Curry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, dimensionals, two way glue pen, dazzling diamonds (on the butterfly wings), 3/4" circle punch
Thanks for checking in today. It's a great day and I hope you get to enjoy it with family and friends.
