Well, it is happening!
Yesterday was my last day at my full-time job. I will be enjoying SU! full time as of next week. That means day time classes have arrived! I am super excited to be able to offer this option. Now, when you come to the Rubber Room for some stampin' fun, you can come when it's convenient for you and fits into your schedule, either morning, afternoon or evening.
On Friday, September 6th I am offering my Christmas Card Class from 10:00 a.m. - noon or 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.  Here's a sneak peek at one of the cards we'll make.  This particular one was made by my dear friend and fellow SU! demonstrator, Nancy Gelle, for our team swap this month.  I will make a few changes, but it will be just as gorgeous!

I love making Christmas cards and make lots of them, so I need to get started early, and having them done early, really helps alleviate the holiday stress.
I hope you will join me in the Rubber Room on September 6th from 10 to noon or 7-9 as we make 8 cards (2 each of 4 different designs). Cost of the class is $15 or FREE with a minimum $25 order placed the night of class. Payment for the class is due with registration.

REMEMBER: Ramblers can attend all the classes I offer for a $5 supply fee and make 4 cards (1 of each design). If you want to come and clean up (includes stamping extra cards), you can attend for free. Want to join our Rubber Rom Rambler team and save on classes and enjoy tons of other Rambler perks? Now is a great time to join. When you purchase a starter kit for $99 before midnight on August 31st, you get $56 in FREE merchandise, your order ships for FREE and you get a $10 coupon to use on your first order placed prior to October 31st. That means, you customize your kit to include $155 worth of amazing Stampin' Up! products (they can even be from the yet-to-be-released Holiday Catalog, if you like) and you only pay $99.Contact me with any questions about this offer, or join our wonderfully fun and supportive team 24/7 here: (use the Join The Fun tab)RSVP by September 3rdEmail: ckolly@stampingismybusiness.comText: 248-909-8016

Here is my Create with Chris Live for this week.  I share how Rubber Room classes work, and I make two different cards with you.

Friday, August 23, 2019


Time is quickly running out to grab $56 in free merchandise and put it into your Starter Kit. That's right, spend $99 on your Starter Kit before August 31st at midnight, and you get to pick $155 worth of product (from either the Annual Catalog, the Holiday Catalog, or a mix of both catalogs) to put in your kit. Your Starter Kit ships for FREE. Plus, you get a $10 coupon to use on your first order placed before October 31st.
There is no obligation to remain active or ever place an order after you get your kit. BUT there are amazing perks to being a demonstrator (like never having to pay full price again), as well as really cool perks to being part of our Rubber Room Rambler team (like team meetings each month, materials-only class fees, free stamping time together each month, etc...)

My Create with Chris Live video from Face Book last night!  I share a couple really fun Summer cards and you get to see exactly how a Rubber Room class works.

How about these gorgeous cards made by Northern Stamper. I am so in love with the look of the Magnolia Lane DSP colored with the Blends. It looks so rich and elegant and pretty and bright....

Thursday, August 15, 2019


I absolutely adore my Blends.  Color makes everything POP, and here are two great samples highlighting how much your Blends can add to an image and/or accessory.  

Big thank you to Debbie Blake who shared this great idea for coloring her ribbon. This gorgeous ribbon can be found in our new Holiday Catalog.  As gorgeous as it is in vanilla, when you color it with your Blends, it becomes a whole lot more versatile and fun..

 Big thank you to Pamela Shrake, who shared this awesome card.  She used the magnificent Magnolia DSP and colored it with her Blends, changing the look of the entire piece of card stock, and her card. She also took the white ribbon with the gold edge and colored it with her Blends.  This is such a gorgeous card showcasing the versatility and easy coordination of Stampin' Up! products.

It's National Creamsicle day. Who knew there was a day for that? Well, know you know. Creamsicles are definitely one of those fun summer treats that take you back to your childhood with every lick.

Since I love Summer and Summer treats and Summer sunshine and, well, basically all things Summer, I am going to celebrate Summer on August 20th from 7-9 p.m. with S'more Stamping Fun! in the Rubber Room. Please join me and make 8 cute, summery cards (2 each of 4 different designs), and enjoy a S'More bar too.
If you're ready to make some summer memories in the Rubber Room, this is the perfect time. Cost of the class is $15 or FREE with a $25 order placed the night of class.
You have less than 24 hours to RSVP for S'mores and Stamping. Be positive to do it before noon August 15th.

Here is the link to my Create with Chris Live from last night on FaceBook.  I show you how to make that gorgeous card that was on my Blog Hop yesterday.  I hope you enjoy!

Monday, August 5, 2019


I love starting the month off with a new Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop and lots of inspiration. This month we have a Fall thing, and I absolutely could not resist sharing something from the new Holiday Catalog.  I love and need everything in this catalog, and simply couldn't wait to play.  I am feeling like Pretty Peacock is going to be a favorite color of mine this Holiday Season.  It is perfect for Fall and is going to be gorgeous with Cherry Cobbler for Christmas.  I am stocking up! 

Okay, so here's my card.

I will be making this card tonight on my Face Book Create with Chris Live at 7:00 p.m. on my FB page at:  Rubber Room Ramblings, Stampin' Up! with Chris Kolly    I hope you can join me and see how easy this is to make.

Here's how it goes together:

For the sentiment (Cut with the Beautiful Boughs Dies)
1) Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Beautiful Boughs Dies
2) Stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink on the Whisper White piece of cardstock and then stamp the wheat in crumb cake over the top of the sentiment.
3) Color a Basic Jewel Rhinestone with the Pretty Peacock Blender Pen to get the sparkly gem on the end (you can use a Noble Peacock Rhinestone, if you have one)

For the Early Espresso layer (5 1/4" X 4")
1) Stamp the the leaf and wheat images randomly in Early Espresso ink on the cardstock.
2) Stamp off (or use a second generation image) on the small dot stamp randomly over the cardstock.

For the Leaves
1) Spritz some Pretty Peacock cardstock with water and then use the Gathered Leaves Dies to cut out three leaves (spritzing the cardstock before cutting it will add a subtle detail to your leaves)  
2) Stamp the big leaf image with Early Espresso ink on some of the gorgeous Come to Gather Designer Series Paper and cut it out with the Gathered Leaves Dies.

Finishing the Card 
1) Color some Whisper White Twine with your  Pretty Peacock Blends to make that pretty bow.
2) Cut a piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper 1 1/4" x 5 1/4"
3) Use the Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Trim and cut the trim off and attach the little Pretty Peacock scallop edge to the bottom of your  piece of Designer Series Paper.  
4) Separate the linen part of the ribbon and use those strands to add the whispy little swirls under the leaves.

Here is what you need to make this gorgeous card.
