I love being a member of SUDSOL, it's a Demo Only site with all kinds of resources for Demos - new or experienced. And if you have a question you'll be sure to find an answer. I have a great Upline, but if yours has retired, or moved, or is inactive, SUDSOL is there for you.
AND I love SUDSOL Blog tours - whether I'm posting or viewing! A challenge always gets the juices flowing, and viewing others' ideas does the same! So - Welcome! Please enjoy your visit, and come back again anytime! In fact you can sign up for email notices of my updates right here on the right column. Now for the goodies:
One of my absolute favourite items in the new 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalogue is the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (p. 175) available in each Colour Collection. I used one of the River Rock sheets from the Neutrals Collection for this project:
My first card uses the new stamp set "Just Believe" - I know this is going to be a 'go to' set because it has such a variety of images and sentiments that are easy to use. (The 'thinking of you' is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set). The cardstock is Basic Black and River Rock (so glad it's back, it goes with everything!!!)
And now I'm jumping right to Christmas!! I love the new stamp sets and papers this year, and for the next card I'm using the set "Greeting Card Kids" (so cute!!) and the Jolly Holiday DSP. I watercoloured the image using markers on plastic picked up with blender pens. My absolutely favourite new colour is Cherry Cobbler, and I'm so happy it's used in the Jolly Holiday paper! I also used it for the little girl's coat, hat, and leggings. The sentiment is from the "Home for Christmas" set. The image is punched with the new 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.
I consider this next card a Christmas/Holiday card as well. In fact, I absolutely adore this colour combination of Whisper White, Basic Black, and Bashful Blue for Christmas cards! I hope you like it too. The trees are from the new "Plant Hope" stamp set, and the sentiment is from the "Grateful Greetings" set.
Finally I've used the Milk Carton die with the Big Shot to make this little collection of Christmas treats. You can fit exactly three small (and unfortunately they should always be small!) pieces of homemade fudge in each carton. Perfect for a neighbourly gift!
Thanks for visiting!
