Enchanting Bird House


Stampin Up Sale A Bration Enchantment Designer Paper  Clearance Rack Blitz Holiday Mini Occasions Mini

Happy New Years Eve Everyone. . .  Tonight is a big big party night, so be safe out there and ask for a ride if need be. 

Today I have a simple project to share with you.  This cute birdhouse ornament was found at Papertrey Ink blog site by Nichole.  You can find it here.  To find the birdhouse you will need to search for the birdhouse templete.  It's not hard to find just be patient.

For supplies, I printed my template out on Crumb Cake and cut it out with Paper Snips.  Next I made a template out of copy paper for the birdhouse front, then cut a piece of the new designer paper Everyday Enchantment.  You can get this dp for FREE in the Sale A Bration Mini when you place a $50 order come Jan 24th.  Sale a Bration is Stampin' Ups most anticipated promotion of the year and is coming to your house very soon (Jan 24th). 

Next I measured my birdhouse roof and cut a piece of Crumb Cake 1.5 x 3 1/8th.   That fit exactly, so next time I will make my piece a little longer, say 3 1/4 or 3 3/8.  I scored it in half and pierced a hole to insert some Linen Thread for my holder. 

Next I cut a hole in the middle for my opening with a small nestie, I found trying to use a punch was a little more work than necessary in trying to center it.  I went the easy peasy way.  LOL  Added some fern in Pear Pizzazz.  My stamp set is Best of Everything (123534/123536).  If you don't have that one I found a cute bird from Season of Friendship.  Both can be found on pg 102 and 103.  My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370) punched with the Word Window Punch.

Thanks for stopping by on this big party day.  May the new year bring you nothing short of happiness.  To order any Stampin' Up supplies please shop in my On Line Store 24/7Thanks for all of your support during this trying year and I look forward to inspiring you again next year.  Pass the word around for our love of papercrafting and just maybe we can see some new sales and faces in the upcoming new year.  Toodles

Apothecary Art

Stampin Up Apothecary Art Stampin Up Holiday Mini Clearance Rack Occasions Mini

Hello Friends . .  Happy Friday.  Well we have almost made it thru the year.  I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and may it bring you peace and joy.

Todays card is totally cased from Jan Tink at Stamps, Paper, Scissors.  It is such a beautiful card I could not resist.  The colors are Pool Party, More Mustard, and Shimmery White paper and Spice Cake DP.  I find it easier to watercolor on the shimmery paper because it is a little thicker and doesn't peel as easy.  The stamp set is the new Apothecary Art that will be available on Jan 4th from the Occasions Mini.  I hope you have received your mini's by now, if not please contact me and I will see what I can do

I also used a couple new cool tools from the mini.  The Paper Doily Die Cut and the new Framelits Die Cut from the Labels Collection.  Get ready to have your world rocked.  Layering is about to get real easy.  Love it !!!

Just a progam note. . .  Stampin' Up has just added a bunch of new products to the Clearance Rack at 80% off.  Lot of stuff while supplies last.  This sale ends on Jan 5th.  What are you waiting for, get shopping .  Also don't forget the Stocking Builder Punch that matches the Stitched Stockings stamp set will NOT be carried over into the new catty in July.   If you have put off ordering it now is the time, quantities are limited.

All Decked in Red – Cool Tools Sneek Peek

Cool Tools Occasions Mini Twitterpated Designer Paper

Good Morning My Stampin' Friends. . .  Today I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you featuring some of Stampin' Ups cool tools.

ATTENTION:  Stampin' Up has announced that the Stocking Builder Punch in the Holiday Mini will NOT be carried over into next years catty.  If this is one of the punches on your To Get List, please note that you still have a few days left to place your order.  Quantities are limited, so I would not delay if I wanted this punch.

For my Valentine base I chose Cherry Cobbler (119685), matted with Basic Black (121045) and topped it off with Whisper White (100730).  I used our Perfect Polka Dot EF (117335)  for a little pizzazz.  Next I punched a Cherry Cobbler strip with our Lace Ribbon Border Punch (122362) and adhered it with glue dots.

My focal point has a lot of layers.  First I cut a rectangle 3 x 3.5 in Basic Black, then matted with a piece of new designer paper called Twitterpated* (125406) which will be available Jan 4th.  Next I used one of our lacy die cuts from the Flirtatious Designer Paper Stack (122360).  I also cut a 2.5" circle and mounted it behind the die cut.  This grounded the lacy circle so you could see it a little better.  Next I used our new Framelits from the Heart Collection* (125599). Boy, I am so happy to see Stampin' Up going in the right direction with these new Framelits.  The possibilities are endless, don't you think. 

Cool Tools Sneek Peak Stampin' Up Twitterpated Designer Paper  Holdiay Mini

My sentiment is from the stamp set With All My Heart (118134/ 118623) and punched with our Modern Label Punch (119849).  My pretty pleated ribbon is the new ribbon from the Occasions Mini called Riding Hood Red Pleated Ribbon* (125569).  Doesn't it just add the final little touch.

What did you think?  I'm so excited about all the cool tools and embellishments that are available this time around.

I'm putting my thoughts together and will have some information available to you soon on a Ribbon and  Embellishment Share.

But today it's all about sharing with you my annual refrigerator magnet calendars.  They measure approx. 3.5 x 6.5 and are oh so cute.  I did a little punch art for this year.  I got the idea from one of our Stampin' Up Success Magazines.  I think he looks more like a cute little bird all perched up on a single branch.

Well that's it for me today.  It seems like after Christmas is always a good time to clean out the old and make room for some new.  So that's my plan for the next few months.  Organizing to make room for some new and pretty things. 

If you have any questions regarding the new Mini's please don't hesitate to contact me.  Maybe I can help.  If you didn't receive you mini's please contact me with you name and address and I will send you them.  If you already have a relationship with a demonstrator please contact her.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and will have a great new year.  Christmas was a little difficult without Murphy, but we got thru it.  Thanks for all your support.  Have a wonderful stamping day and if you are in need of any supplies and can't wait to spend those gift certificates please shop at my On Line Store open 24/7.  Remember the Clearance Rack is still in full swingCheck it out, there are some great prices but quantities are limited.
