Adorable Cup Cake Holder Using The Petal Cone Die Cut

SUO Cupcake Holder Stampin Up Petal Cone Idea Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello My Stamping Friends.  Welcome to the start of a brand new week.

Today I am featuring one of our new Big Shot Dies.  It's called the Petal Cone Die and boy it can do a lot of different things.  If I remember correctly this die was introduced at last year's convention.  Since then many people have gotten a hold of it and have come up with many ways in which to use this die cut, but today I'm showing how you can make a cute cup cake holder or gift box.  Like I said this was the rage at last years convention.  My colors are Pretty In Pink and Chocolate Chip.  For this particular look I had to cut 3 different cones.  Of course one for the outside (PNP) and one for the inside (CC) and another if you want to use designer paper to decorate the outside of your cupcake box.  Some of my other cool tools are the Big Shot, Embossing Folder Elegant Lines #119277, 2 2/3 Scallop Circle Punch #118874, Small Oval Punch #120908 for the Cherry, Small Circle Punches to support my Red Bow   My sentiment comes from the Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes #122617.  There's lots of pretties on this one, I'll just name a few 1 1/4" Striped CC Ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, Random Real Red Button, and Real Red 5/8" Ribbon.

This idea comes from Diana Gibbs over at Stamping With Di but she is not the originator.  You can get all the directions to make this cute cup cake holder from Robin Merriman at her blog here.

Petal Card Using Spice Cake DP

SUO Petal Card Faith In Nature Stampin' Up Holiday Mini

Hello My Stamping Friends. . .  I've had a really good day yesterday.  I actually finished up two new projects to share with you all.  My project today is called a Petal Card and boy does it pack a punch.  I got the design over on Splitcoaststampers from Beate Johns.  Check out her video here.  she does amazing work.

My card today consists of four (4) scallop circles.  Stampin' Up has a die cut called Scallop Circle #113468 that can be used to make your scallops.  Next I cut two circles from Spice Cake designer paper, cut them in half and attached them to my scallops.  My stamp set is a Hostess Set called Faith In Nature.   When you host a workshop of $150 or more you can purchase this set with your hostess dollars.  For more deets on workshops and how you can receive FREE Stampin' Up products drop me an email here.

Fall Is In The Air With Button Buddies

SUO Button Buddies Fall Card Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello My Crafty Friends. . . .  Happy Friday.  Today I have a delightful card to share with you.  The stamp set is from the ever so cute Button Buddies W122735 C122040.  This card was totally cased.  I'm having trouble remembering who this belongs to, but I think her name is Anne Maire.  After all it was yesterday.  LOL  Forgive me if I have gotten this wrong.  It's a very cute design and just had to case it.  My colors are Early Expresso, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie.  Instead of using a button I used our embossing folder Square Lattice to give the pumpkins some texture and dimension.  My sentiment is a retired one called Thankful For.  I did stamp it with Craft Choc Chip ink  and embossed it with Clear and used my Heat Tool.  My ribbon is the 1 1/4" Striped Olive Green

If you too would like to case this card and need supplies, please shop at my On Line store.  It's open 24/7 for your shopping convenience.  This would also make a great Halloween card with the right sentiment.  I didn't have anything large enough.

Good Morning To Ya.  Today I have a fun project to share.  I'm
featuring a new product from the Holiday Mini.  It is the Holiday Stocking Bigz Die.  Oh so cute.  You can find it on
pg 24 of the Holiday Mini #124098.  It is just the right size to use as a stocking stuffer (candy canes, gift card, small goodies).
You can hang it on your tree or even your mantle.  I'm going to use them as gift card holders for my children this year. 

My colors are Cherry Cobbler, Shimmery White and designer
paper from the Frostwood Lodge designer paper pack.  You can also find that in the Holiday Mini on Pg 28.  If you are a plaid lover like I am Frostwood Lodge #124002 will be a must have.  There are many ways for you to decorate the cuff of this stocking.  This time I choose to use a new stamp set called Dear Santa W123832 C123834.  It is a small
set but packs a big punch.  I can't wait to make another one and use the new embellishments (Stitched Felt and Mini Jingle Bells)
on pg 30 of the Holiday Mini.

Halloween Fun – Out On A Limb

SUO Out On A Limb Stampin' Up Holiday Mini

Hello Friends. . .  Well the big week end is over, hope you had a pleasant one.  The weather here today was fabulous.  I was finally able to do a little yard work and we closed the pool today.

The HOLIDAY MINI  has been released for a few days now.  Hope you are enjoying it.  If you are in need of one please contact me with you name and address.  If you already have a relationship with another demonstrator please contact her 

Today I have a cute Halloween Card to share with you.  I'm using the stamp set called Out on a Limb.  It has ten (10) great images for you to create all your Halloween Cards for this year. 

My cardbase is Basic Black.  For the top half I used some retired designer paper and for the bottom section I used designer paper from the catty called Frightful Night.  I used some cool tools on this one.  The scallop circle is from our Scallop Circle #2 Die Cut, I punched a 3" circle and stamped the trees.  Next I punched a 1 3/8" Circle from some More Mustard and sponged it with Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the cute little witch on her boom and colored her with markers.  My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and was punched with the Word Window and Modern Lable Punches.  I attached a spooky bat from the Bat Punch which I guess is now retired, I couldn't find it.  My ribbon is some of the new 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon in Tangerine Tango.  Oh let's not forget the clouds, they were stamped with Basic Black, cut out with our Paper Snips and sponged just a tad around the edges.
