Thanks again for stopping back by today!
First here is a picture of my new goodies. I got the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Bigz XL Die, Lots of Tags 4-pack Sizzlits, Background #1 Texturz Plates, Impressions Pad, Silicone Rubber, all of the new ribbons, Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons, Best Ever Simply Scrappin' Kit (Keep watching my blog for a b-day card stamp a stack in March using this kit!),Clear Rhinestone brads and A Little Somethin' Level 2 Hostess set. I'm sure there is more, but I just can't recall what else I ordered off of the top of my head. :o)
I got the Movers & Shapers Curly Label die, because I just knew I wanted to recreate the card shown on page 195 of the catalog. . . and guess what??? I did! :o)
Before I share with you my version of the card I want to show you an actual picture of the die. By looking in the catalog I just couldn't picture what it would look like, and how the movable piece actually worked. Well after I opened the package I knew right away how it worked.
The movable piece has magnets on the back, so you can move it were you want it to be. How great is that!!!
Here is another photo, so you can see how the card stands up! If you are a card club member you can bet you'll be making this card in February! Not sure of the color yet! :o)
OK . . now don't forget to come back at Noon (or after) and check out my blog for my 3D Big Shot Swap!
Thanks for stopping and Happy Stamping!
The picture is kinda small, so I'll list the items for you:

In this photo above you can also see I used the Spiral punch to punch on the Basic Black card stock and before I stuck everything together I used my More Mustard ink pad and applied ink directly onto the Whisper White card stock.
As you read the above descriptions you might have noticed that I mention I used the Classic Ink Pads. I often get asked what's the difference between Classic and Craft ink pads. . . . so here's the scoop!
Classic Stampin’ Pads are dye based ink that are water soluble. Dye inks are transparent and absorb into the paper. They also dry quickly on all types of paper making them easier to work with. Dye inks are not waterproof and the colors will bleed if they get wet. Dye inks are safe for scrapbooks, but will fade over time.
Craft Stampin’ Pads are pigment based ink, which is a dry powdery agent that uses a binding agent to help it adhere to paper. Craft pads contain natural binding agents that are safe for use in scrapbooks. Craft ink sits on top of the paper and does not absorb, so they take longer to dry and are a good choice to use as an embossing ink. Craft ink is often preferred for scrapbooking because pigment inks are more resistant to fading than most dye inks.
All this being said, I prefer to use the Classic Ink for most of my stamping. I have used them almost exclusively since I started to stamp and scrapbook and have not noticed any fading. I love that they dry almost instantly, I don’t want to have to wait for my ink to dry before I can finish my projects. I do use the Craft Inks and for certain projects they are the best choice. I love stamping a light color on a dark card stock. And I love using them with clear embossing powder.
The Craft Stampin' Spots are a GREAT choice if you don't use the pigment ink as often as the dye ink. You should try both to see which is right for you.
My next step was to cut out letters using my Big Shot, Chocolate Chip card stock and Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz Dies.
Are you wondering what the circles are? They are 4" circle coasters covered in Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. I used my sanding blocks to smooth and "weather" the edge a bit.
If you look close you'll see I used my Crop-a-Dile and Jumbo Pewter Eyelets then tied Chocolate Chip Ribbon through each one.
I haven't decided where I'm going to hang this yet. Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by today, and I look forward to your suggestions!
OK! Now you've watched the video. Do you want to know what I did with the pieces of chip board covered in Dazzling Diamonds? Well I made snail and/or scissor charms for some VIPs who are attending my 2008 Hostess Appreciation Night! Thanks ladies, and I hope you like them!
Thanks for taking time to stop by and if you have any questions please ask!

Call or e-mail me to book your workshop. . . it's one of the best times to be a hostess!!!
Today's post is going to be short and sweet. We have a busy day today. Blake and I are going to Disney on Ice, while Rocky hits the boat show in the QCA. Then we are going to meet up for a late lunch. Afterwards Blake is going to be spending the night at his Great Aunt Debbie's house while Rocky and I attend a Harley-Davidson party.
Although we didn't have much time to ride our 2003 Ultra Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary motorcycle this summer we still stayed very active in our local chapter. Before we had Blake we rode a lot! Now it's hard for us to leave him home, so we tend to take the Impala more than the HD.
OK . . onto Stamping!
As promised I have something new to share with you today. Starting Monday Stampin' Up! has a new circle cutter. Making perfect circles has never been simpler! Use the Circle Scissor Plus (shown below) to cut and draw circles with ease. Works best with the Glass Mat, which provides a smooth glass cutting surface that allows a cutting blade to glide without dragging or skipping.
This tool is one of the many items on my wish list. . how about you?
Starting at 1pm on Monday you'll be able to order this awesome Cutter (112530-$29.95)!
I hope you have a GREAT day!
