You have now entered... the Twilight Zone!

Have you ever made a Zoetrope card? They are so..... cool! You pull the string and it spins, kind of like in those old movies when you're going back in time or to another space/time dimension!

We tackled this at Master class this week, and do you need to be the kind of person who will enjoy a fiddly design. Not really difficult but lots of steps and you have to pay attention to how to put it together or it doesn't work. Totally worth it though when it's done!

Would you like to learn how? Let me know and I'll post some directions...

I hope you're having a wonderful week - Brenda

Now this card is Bloomin' Marvelous!

Look at this beautiful card! One of the talented demonstrators in our BLISS team made this and shared it with us at our meeting last week. I love it! It uses the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set (free during Sale-a-bration!) 

I love how she backed the greeting with strips of Summer Starfruit card stock cut with the Scallop Ribbon punch. 

She popped up some of the flowers using puffies and that really finished it off. Great job Erika! 

Have a great week! Brenda

Patterned Occasions, Congratulations Smarty Pants!

Another SUPER easy Sale-a-bration item, I LOVE this stamp set, Patterned Occasions, and this little pair of jeans is my favorite stamp in there. I made this little favor for some of the demonstrators in our BLISS team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators this week. I put it together in a flash using the Oval Accents Bigz die and the Designer Label Punch. The rhinestone for a button finished it off.

Only 5 more days of Sale-a-bration left now, don't miss out! And please let me know if you might be interested in joining our BLISS team of demonstrators.

Have a great week! Brenda

Easter Scrapbook Pages!

It's been ages since I've had the chance to do any scrapbooking! I put these pages together for a class I'm doing this weekend. 
I made the Easter basket using the new Oval framelits. The base of the basket is the largest scallop edged oval cut in half. Then I made the handle by punching ovals out of Designer Series Paper using the Extra Large Oval punch.  I stamped the letters in Basic Gray using my favorite alphabet set - Morning Post. And I stamped the little bunnies (that are hard to see on this photo!) in Pool Party using the single stamp, Ears To You (so cute!)
Have a wonderful week! Brenda
