PANSY PUNCH!

This is Keri's Demo Diva swap, and I love it's simplicity!  Keri pairs the Pansy Punch with the Petite Petals Punch to make a quick and easy card.  With the addition of some ribbon and DSP this is a perfect example of a card that is quick and easy and awesome!

STAMPIN' UP! SOMETHING FOR BABY STAMP SET!

This is one of Nancy's New Catalog Swap cards.  She used the Something for Baby Stamp Set along with the coordinating Baby's First Framelits for the Big Shot.  I love how she softened her words by adding some sponging.  Thanks for sharing, Nancy!

BLOOM WITH HOPE FROM STAMPIN' UP!

"That Michelle" strikes again!  I hosted a New Catalog Swap for some demonstrators, and this is one of Michelle's contributions.  Over the next few weeks you will get to see lots of the 44 awesome swaps.  That Michelle used the Hostess Stamp Set Bloom With Hope.  All four of her cards are just this beautiful. She used the new Stampin' Up! Blendabilities and "fussy cut" all the flowers.  You need to make plans to stop by the Rubber Room and view this creation in person!  It is truly breathtaking.

BABY BOX!

This is a little box demo friend, Nancy and I made.  We used a pattern by Pootles, and just used a stamp set Nancy had.  It will hold bibs or onesies.  A great gift idea!

STAMPIN' UP! BLENDABILITIES HOLDER!

Last week I had some play time with my demo friend, Nancy.  We made a little something to hold the new Blendabilities from Stampin' Up!  This one is our second attempt, but it meets all of our storage needs.

As you can see, attached to the top of the box are holders for the Blendabilities Color Lifter, the Momento Ink Pad and the Ink Refill.  You can slide the box your Blendabilities come in right into a cubby/slot.

Or, you can take your Blendabilities out of their box an store them individually in a cubby/slot.

Or you can do a little of both, if you would like.  AND you can slide a whole cubby/slot right out with your Blendabilities in it.
Notice how that top cubby/slot is twice as wide as the rest of them?  That is the cubby/slot that is designated for the Skin Tone Blendabilities, which come 6 in a pack.  You can hold 7 sets of Blendabilities plus your Skin Tone Blendabilities in this container.  If you are lucky enough to have all the Blendabilities Stampin' Up! offers, you can make another container, skip the top pieces and attach it to the bottom of this one.  Everything you need to create your beautiful water-colored image is all in one spot and very portable.

I will be working on a pattern/template for you and can hopefully put it altogether with a little video by next Monday, so be sure to stop back by and see how easy this is to make!

CAROLINE'S DIVA CARD SHARE!

This is Caroline's "Work Of Art" Demo Diva Night Share!
I am loving the new Work Of Art Stamp Set, and this card is a perfect example of why.  The colors are so bright and cheery and when you combine it with the butterfly punches, some DSP and a few rhinestones, it is not only quick and easy, but it is a "Work Of Art"!

LINDA'S DIVA NIGHT SHARE!

I love that Linda shared a card using a stamp set I already own!  This is the outside of her lovely card.

And this is what her card looked like on the inside.
I enjoy adding a stamped inside to my cards and stamping on the envelopes too.  It is like a "total experience" when they all match.

DIRECTIONS FOR DECO LABEL FRAMELIT CARD!

A few days ago I posted this card, which Nancy shared at our Demo Diva Night this month.
Lots and lots of you have requested instructions for this beautiful card.  THIS is where Nancy found the instructions/tutorial for her card.  It was made by Belinda Neel, and she even provides a great video for you. For those of you who just need the dimensions, here is a photo of her "template" for the card.
Hope this helps.  If you have any other questions, please let me know.

GOT TO ENJOY SOME TIME AWAY!

I was gone to Chicago over the weekend and got to enjoy some sunshine, a sandy beach, lots of shopping and a Blues Festival.  Not to mention tons of yummy food!!  I am going to put a few posts on here today to try and catch up a bit with all of you.

For those of you requesting the instructions for Nancy's card, I am going to try to get them on here tonight or tomorrow.  I promise, I will get them to you!

MICHELLE'S DIVA SHARE!

These are the cutest 3x3 note cards.  "That Michelle" shared these at our Demo Diva night this month, and she made them using here Envelope Punch Board.  They are so cute, and perfect for those quilters and seamstresses we all know.

LINDA'S VOTIVE HOLDER BAG!

There were so many awesome things shared at our Demonstrator Diva get together this month, and this was a little extra treat Linda brought to share with all of us.  Inside this bag is a votive candle.  Talk about spoiled! Demo Divas are the best~~and, yes, I am prejudiced.

GHIRARDELLE CANDY HOLDER MADE WITH THE DIAGONAL SCORE PLATE!

This cute little candy holder is made with the Diagonal Score Plate, and it is super easy.  PLUS, it holds two of these yummy candies (one on each side).  I used some of the new 3/8" Stitched Ribbon in the Lost Lagoon new In Color, along with some of new Flowerpot Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from the Round Array Stamp Set. This is a very quick and easy little treat for teachers, hostesses, bank tellers, anyone who makes you smile!  P.S., you don't need any tape to hold it together!

NANCY'S JUNE DIVA SHARE!

PURSE BOX FOR DEMO DIVAS TONIGHT!

The Rubber Room Demo Diva group will be here in 1/2 hour, so I think I can post this now and not spoil it for them.  This is one of my projects for tonight. 

This is a little purse box.

This is the mini Altoids container that fits inside the purse box.

The idea for the purse box came from another demonstrator, Sam Donald.  I used her template but altered the measurements so it would hold the little Altoids tin.  You could easily alter the template to make it big enough to hold note cards.  For my purse box I used the new stamp set called And Many More.  In fact, there are lots of sentiments in that stamp set that fit in the punch for the front of the purse box.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Flowerpot DSP Pack, and the ribbon is the new 3/8 Stitched Satin, which I love.  I used the Tangelo Twist ribbon for this project.  My little purse box closes with a velcro dot, and I added a little shredded paper on the inside and nestled the Altoids in the shredded paper.
