Stampin'Up Spring Catalog 2013 Silver Glimmer Dress Up

It's Silver Glimmer "DRESS UP" Time

I just couldn't resist playing with the NEW "DRESS UP"
Framelits Die in the NEW SPRING 2013 Catalog
It looks so sparkly set against the 
Pool Party Oval layer (part of the NEW OVAL COLLECTION dies)

The "Sycamore Street" Designer Paper I used 
is FREE During Stampin'Up's SALE-A-Bration period 
coming January 22nd.
I love the Pool Party and White combination, so fresh!

The Sentiment is in a set called "VINTAGE VERSES" 
it is also one of the FREE Items
during SALE-A-BRATION. It looks super cute glued 
on the Pool Party ruffled ribbon
Just trim your ends to create a banner look!

I used pearls for the buttons on the dress
and a sharpie to color them.
Wrap Pool Party Bakers Twine around the waist 4 times to create
a matching belt. Add some dazzling details to the 
twine to make it sparkle!

My color inspiration came from the color challenge @
they always have fun challenges using Stampin'Up products

2012 Create Thursday-012
Now I'm off to play with more goodies from 
the upcoming catalog. More inspiration coming.
Thank you for stopping by!     Pam

Stampin'Up Spring Catalog 2013 Sneak Peek Designer Paper & Pinwheel

I'm in love with the new
DESIGNER SERIES PAPeR in the Spring 2013 Catalog.
I have mixed it with Calypso Coral and 
Lucky Limeade, just 2 of the colors in

It's a Sizzlet Die # 129411 that makes a finished 2"x2" Pinwheel.

Fold corners and place a brad in the middle...so cute!

Both the gift tag and the matchbox took advantage
of the HOLIDAY COLLECTION Framelit Dies
Use the "christmas tree" die to make Santa's beard.
Use the top portion of the Elegant Butterfly Punch  to make the mustache!
Who would know you could s t r e t c h
 the use of your

Stampin'Up Snowy Flurry in Champagne Glimmer Paper

I made this GLIMMERY card for this week's color challenge
at Create with Connie and Mary
2012 Create Thursday-010
If you have some glimmer paper I suggest you try using it with whites 
or vanilla paper.
It is quite easy to make an elegant card when you die cut or
 punch your paper.
Did you know that Stampin'Up Glimmer paper 
is just the right thickness to punch thru.
I confess, I've bought other glitter paper in the past 
fully planning on punching out pieces to use on a project....arghhhhhh,
 I ruined the punch.
 The paper was too thick.
So when SU offered it's GLIMMER paper I was a little hesitant . 
You can imagine how pleased I was to be able to 
punch with no problem....love this stuff!
(It comes in Silver, Red and Champagne, plus you can tint the Silver 
to create what ever color you like)

This card is actually a gate fold with a belly band around the middle.
It has a twisted swirl of vanilla ribbon around a Vintage Faceted Button, 
and there is a tiny pearl in the middle...can you see it? Tiny Huh?

You will need these items

Snowy Flurry Bigz Die, Elegant Lines embossing Folder, 
Greeting of the Season Stamp set
Punches...XL Oval, 1 1/4"circle, 1 3/8"circle, Scallop oval
Vanilla Paper, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Vintage Faceted Buttons and vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding

Merry Christmas....Pam
