Gold for New Years Eve for a Golden Year

A New Year Already?
I have some gold for a golden year.  Technically it's not a golden year but for me, 2013 has been amazing!  But, we always have things we want to improve about ourselves... hop over to the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog to check out all of our Resolutions... Click on the banner below to check it out:
Here is my card for today:
I have to admit, I copied this card directly from the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Magazine, Stampin' Success.  I love the colors (Strawberry Slush and Crisp Cantaloupe) combined with the Gold Vellum (isn't it amazing?).  The stamp (yes, it's only one stamp), the twine and the vellum are all from the new catalog!
As you can see I added some Strawberry Slush Designer Series Paper Stack polka dot paper as a liner for the envelope!  I love it!

Do you want to win some blog candy?  I have a roll of ribbon, an embossing folder and stack of designer series paper to give away to one of my customers.  Comment below and tell me YOUR New Year's Resolution to qualify **Please note: current demonstrators won't qualify and prize will only be sent to a USA address.  Thanks for understanding! :)**  I will draw for a winner on January 2nd at 10am!

By the Seashore

Happy Birthday at the Seashore
Good Morning!  The busiest time of the year is over and I am back.  :)  I still don't have a computer (using someone else's computer) but I have several posts prepared and ready to go for you.  Our regular laptop should be fixed soon (it's been gone for over a month) and then we will get my mac fixed.  Who knew having computer issues would be so annoying?
 Anyway... back to my post... so I received all of my new goodies in the mail over the last month and this DSP is in the new Occasions Catalog.  Have you received yours in the mail yet?  If not, you should be getting it very soon!
Do you love this card?  I thought it was perfect for a man but Marc doesn't agree.  I need help when making cards for men!  LOL  I love this stamp set By the Seashore (clear mount #126532 for $16.95).  I know it's winter, but in Florida, it's not really winter.
I made a matching envelope liner using the Designer Series Paper Stack (Brights).  You can order it as well using #130134 for $21.95.  Have you ever bought one of these sets of papers?  I LOVE them, you get 4 pieces of 12x12 paper for each of the 10 colors in the collection.
As you can see I stamped the front of the envelope as well!  I used the By the Tide stamp set (clear mount #129120 for $19.95).

Leave me a comment and say hi!  I have missed you!
Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow!

Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration: Gift Bags

Thanks for checking out my blog again today!  I appreciate you following my postings!  I know I haven't provided a lot of directions or lists because I am laptop-less and it's really hard to type on my Nook.  I am currently using my mom's computer while I am here for dinner (so I need to hurry up so Marc and I can go home to decorate the tree!!).  Here's my project:
Aren't these little bags so cute?  They are the Muslin Bags that Stampin' Up! sells.  I believe they are sold 10 for $9.95 but don't quote me, I might be wrong!  I used an ink dauber inked up with Real Red ink and just randomly put spots.  I made the tag using the Tags 4 You stamp set with matching punch.  If you are wondering if the treasures are in the bag, you are right!  I love those!

See you back here tomorrow for some more inkspiration... with a birthday card for the best mom in the world!
