DOdesigner Laurie: Berry Christmas stamp set

I often get asked by my demonstrators (DOstamperSTARS), what should I order out of the mini catalogs?  That can sometimes be a difficult decision to make.  We often want it all, but is that really necessary to run our Stampin' Up! business?  For some demonstrators, it is their hobby, so I advise them to purchase what they like.  For the business minded demonstrator, I suggest purchasing a variety of items so as to showcase a variety of styles. 

From the 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog, I highly recommended the beautiful stamp set "Berry Christmas" and matching accessories (Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper, Petals-a-Plenty texture impressions folder, Merry Details sizzlet die & Merry embosslit) found on pg 20-21.  And of course, don't forget to stock up on cardstock and ink to match the designer series paper (Soft Suede and Real Red).  One of my DOstamperSTARS, Laurie Zoellmer, took my advice with her purchases, and made some beautiful projects with it!

I found that I was the recipient of several of her wonderful projects.  So today and tomorrow, I'll be sharing some of her work.

Isn't this a cute gift card holder?

Dec Technqiue Tues Classes: Sunsets & Houses

This month featured some fun techniques that were shared by a couple fellow demonstrators.

Sunset-Card

This first card features a technique called Glowing Sunset, shared by LeeAnn Greff.   It also features another technique...masking.  We masked off the "snowy" area.  Then using Stampin' Sponges (cut into wedges), So Saffron, Cameo Coral & Bashful Blue ink were sponged onto the card (in that order).  Note:  It takes a light touch with the sponging.

Other Supplies:  Scenic Season stamp set, Bashful Blue, Eggplant Envy and Whisper White Cardstock, Eggplant Envy, So Sffron, Cameo Coral & Bashful Blue Classic Ink, Silver Brads

Build-a-Bear Workshop Name Frames - Oh so CUTE!

Hey - did you know?  I was selected by Stampin' Up! as one of 60 demonstrators to test Build-a-Bear Workshop (BABW) Parties.  So I got in gear and made up some cutes samples. 

Of course - when I think of BABW, I think of my grandsons Max & Sam. Aren't they cute?!

Max&SamEating

Here's a cute name frame I made for each of them to match their rooms.  I just love the way they turned out!!

FrameMax

FrameSam

I first cut a chipboard bear so they would be sturdy.  Then decorated the bears using the Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper (#118060) and cardstock to match.  The clothes were die cut with the Beary Essentials Bigz Die (#117978).  The cap and star was cut with Beary Boy Sizzlit Die (#117981).  The letters were cut with my new Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz Dies (#115960) - LOVE 'EM!

Max's uses: Close to Cocoa, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue and Pumpkin Pie. 
Sam's uses: Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa Basic Black & Chocolate Chip.
  

FYI - The frames fit a 4x6 photo

I'm so excited to give these to them for Christmas!

Enjoy~Dawn O
