What Do You See In the Meadow?

Hello Friends,

Can you believe that January is a little more than half-over already? Where does the time go?  I hope that the first month of the new year has been good to you.  Last year in January, I was in an auto accident and ended up with bruised ribs and a broken right arm and wasn’t able to do much of anything for about 3 months. This year, my sister fell and broke her hip right after Christmas.  She lives by herself, so I’ve been at her house taking care of her.  I don’t mind because it gives me a lot of time to spend with her. I haven’t been able to teach any classes yet, but will be back to teaching this Friday and Monday!

Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions CatalogHere is one of the cards I made when I received my first Stampin’ Up! Order out of the new 2016 Occasions Catalog.  I love stamps you can use for scenery and the In the Meadow set is a great one!  The stamps can be used together to create beautiful stamped creations or they can be used with stamps from other sets, as well.  I only used 5 of the 8 stamps in the set to make this card.  All of the images were stamped on one panel of Whisper White Card Stock, except for the greeting. I used Smoky Slate Ink and a Blender Pen to color in the mountains and Baked Brown Sugar Ink for the deer.  Next, I sponged the sky with Soft Sky Ink and tied a piece of Linen Thread around it before adhering it to a Pear Pizzazz Card Stock card base.  You can’t see it in the photo, but the darkest parts of the mountains glisten because I used my new Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush on them! (I love these new glitter pens. They come in clear and gold and add a sparkly touch of shine to your projects without the mess!) And what about that greeting? Don’t you just love it?  Besides more cards, one of my next projects with the In the Meadow Stamp Set is going to be to make a canvas picture with this these stamps for my daughter’s wall…She loves deer!

This month’s Hostess code is HWMYAWNS. Make sure you use it when placing your online orders of $150 or less (before taxes and shipping) and your name will be entered into the monthly drawing for Stampin’ Up! products. (Don’t use the hostess code if your order is $150 or more before taxes and shipping so you can earn the Hostess Rewards.) Your name will still be entered into the drawing.  Your order must be placed through my online store or me in order to be eligible to win. Last month’s winner received the Petite Petals Punch!

Demonstrator–Just let me know if you would like one and I’ll make sure you get it. In the meantime, you can view it online here.

Sale-a-BrationSale-a-Bration begins today, as well.  What is it you ask. Sale-a-Bration is a celebration of FREE Stampin’ Up! products!  For every $50 in product purchased from any of the current Stampin’ Up!

2016Sale-a-Bration Brochure

Click here to view the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  Sale-a-Bration only lasts until March 31, 2016, so start your shopping now so you have time to get all the FREE items you want!

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I was allowed to pre-order all of the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration items I wanted, so I’ve already started making cards for my upcoming card making classes and workshops.  I’m going to share one of the cards with you today and here it is:

Hearth and Home Framelits Dies The stamp set is called Happy Home and it can be used with or without the Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies set, which are still available in the Occasions Catalog. For this card, I’ve used it with the dies.

The card base is made out of Thick Whisper White Card Stock and is covered with a panel of Pink Pirouette Card Stock, which was embossed with the Elegant Dot Embossing Folder.  The image from the Happy Home Stamp Set was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers before being stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  It was adhered to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Another piece of Whisper White Card Stock was cut out with the window frame die from the Hearth and Home Framelits Dies set and it was placed on top of the stamped scene with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some pop.  The greeting is also from the same stamp set and was stamped in Smoky Slate Ink.

I just love the Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies and you can use them with this stamp set and many others.  They are available with the stamp set as a bundle, which is 15% less than purchasing them each separately.

Purchase this stamp set or anything else by calling me at 727-698-7509, emailing me at terry@classycutupscreations.com, or by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” button in the right column.  Remember, with every purchase of $50 or more (before tax and shipping), you get to select one of the items from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure for FREE! (Purchase $100 or more before tax and shipping and get two FREE items, etc!)

Make sure to use this month’s hostess code – QU6JTH44 to be included in the monthly drawing for a FREE gift from me!

Peaceful Pines Step Card

Hello Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and friends!  Mine was fabulous. Most of my Florida family were at my house for Christmas Eve and spent the night so we could all be together Christmas morning. It has been a tradition in my family ever since I was a little girl and my grandparents were alive. My parents continued it and once they were gone, it fell to me.  I’m so glad that my children and grandchildren are so close…I have no doubt that they will continue the tradition.  There were 27 of us this year!

Christmas Step CardYes, Christmas is over until next year, but I want to share just one more card we made at some of my classes this year because I love the way it turned out. As soon as I saw this particular print out of the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper pack from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew how I wanted to use it. (I have to tell you – This year’s Holiday Catalog has been my favorite! I loved the products so much that I ordered almost everything in it!)

One of my favorite color combinations for cards is black, white and gold, so it was easy to select the colors to go with this designer paper.  The card base is Basic Black Card Stock and was cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″. It was scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″.  The designer paper was cut to 4″ x  5-1/4″ and adhered to the largest section of the Basic Black.

The two trees were stamped using one of the tree images from the Peaceful Pines Stamp Set and were die cut with the coordinating die from the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies Set. They were adhered to the second “mountain” fold on the card base.  The greeting was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and a piece of the Gold Cording Trim was tied around the card base right above it.

The deer image is from the Jolly Christmas Stamp Set. It was stamped in VersaMark and also heat-set in Gold before being cut out with Paper Snips.

I love that the card can be set out and displayed!

There are only a few more days to shop from the Holiday Catalog and some items are already sold out. Order what you want today before it’s too late!

I have received my pre-order of brand new products from the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog and can’t wait to start playing with them! Hopefully I will have something to share with your tomorrow.

Tempting Turquoise Christmas Card

Hello Friends,

Hurray! I am finally finished with the Christmas card order and they’re in the mail! It was a huge undertaking, but my daughters and some of my grandchildren helped me to get Handmade Christmas Cardseverything finished on time. I’m so grateful I have such a loving family! We always are there for each other, not matter what.

Today I want to share another card we made in some of my recent card making classes.  I love this card, especially the colors. The card base was made with Thick Whisper White Card Stock.  This card stock is the perfect weight for card bases and other projects.  The top layer is Tempting Turquoise Card Stock.  I stamped the trees, snowflakes, and greeting from the Wonderland Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink and embossed them in white.  Next, I took my Whisper White Craft Ink Pad and swiped it on all 4 sides of the card stock.  A piece of Silver Cording Trim was wrapped around the front of the stamped panel and it was adhered to the card base.  Last, I added one of the Winter Wonderland Embellishments to the bottom of the card.

Classy Cut-ups Creations

I stamped the pines (also from the Wonderland Stamp Set) and the message on the inside of the card in Tempting Turquoise Ink.  The greeting is from a retired stamp set, but you could use many of the greetings in this year’s stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog, as well.

I always like to stamp my envelopes to match the cards I make.  Here is the one I stamped for this card.
