Retired Seasonal Scarecrowes


Hello Folks. . . hope all is well.  I guess you guys have noticed that I'm using a lot of retired stamp sets lately.  Today is no different.  I've been looking for this set for some time and I finally was able to find it at a reasonable price.  It's called Seasonal Scarecrowes.  I'snt it adorable.  Over the last few years I've had a hard time getting inspired with SU's new line up but I'm so excited today.  This snowman warms my heart.  

My colors are Coastal Cabana, designer paper from the Fresh Prints 4 x 6 paper pack, sentment from Good Greetings.  I colored with my Copics and used my nesties scallop oval die cut.  Added a little glitter glue for some sparkle.  


My stams a stack went well over the week end and the ladies are well on their way to completing this years Christmas Cards.  Questions are always welcome and if I can help you place your seasonal orders that's a good thing too.  Take care and happy stamping.  WOW the leaves are falling today, guess what I'll be doing soon.

Love This Punch Art Snowman



Hello Folks. . .  Do You Like Punch Art?  I found this little guy on Pinterest and fell in love.  There's not much to him but he will warm your heart.  I'm having a Christmas Stamp A Stack next week-end and made each one of my stampers a tag pouch as a little gift for them.  My pouch is a 4 x 8 regtangle, scored at 4".  I embossed it with our Northern Flurry embossing folder.  The snowman needed a little depth to him, so I sponged a little Marina Mist Ink on the edges and I also sponged some on my pouch for additional depth.  To keep the pouch together I used  5/8" Satin Ribbon.  My sentiment is from the new set called Good Greetings.  I used our Modern Label Punch to dress up my sentiment.  I'll show you the tags in my next post.  Have to keep some surprises.  LOL    TIP:  To make the mouth I punched a 1" circle and used that as my guide.  I used our Basic Black Marker and made two little dots on each end of his mouth so it looks like a heart.  I hope you can see that  I'm waiting for my White Gel Pen to arrive.  I'm thinking about highlighting a few of the dots on the snowflakes.  I think that will make it pop even more.


Thanks for stopping by, This little guy is really worth a little extra effort.  I'm sitting here just smiling at him.  Love snowmen.  If you need supplies please shop in my On Line Web Store.  The link is below.  Questions are always welcome.  Christmas is coming, never too early to start crafting.  Love It.  It keeps me sane.  Take Care Toodles



Tips for Wondrous Wreath


Click Here to View Stampin' Up Video

Hello Everyone – hope you are doing well.  One of my favs in the Holiday Mini this year is "Wonderous Wreath"  There are a few tips that you should consider before you start your project.  Photopolymer stamps are a little different.  These stamps can stretch when you apply them to your blocks.  I have found by placing the top of my stamp first and gently letting it fall on your block helps with the stretching.  Make sure you have a large enough block.  Block E is the size you will need for the wreath.  You will need a soft surface like our Paper Piercing Mat or a mouse pad to stamp on.  The soft surface allows for a better image.  Also our new Stampin' Ink Pads work best with these stamps.  I tried and tried and couldn't get a clean image with the old ink pads.  Saves you a lot of fustration.  I know you will love these stamps, you just need to adjust to them, storage is great.  When I get a little time I'm going to reorganize my stamp sets.  I have see page protectors with pockets that you can store you stamps in and put them in a 3 ring binder.  WOW just imagine the storage you can save, you could thumb thru your binder and know exactly what stamps set you already have.  I can't wait.  

My colors are Very Vanilla cardbase, Cherry Cobbler, some retired designer paper.  My wreath was stamped with Pistachio Pudding and stamped again with Pear Pizzazz.  My berries are Cherry Cobbler.   The joy was cut using our matching die cut with Glorious Gold cardstock.  One last tip – you will have a fun stamping experience if you have all your products before you start your project.  We all need less stress in our lives.  Just have fun with it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Get started on those Christmas Cards early.  OMG less stress.  LOL  If you have any questions please drop me a line or two.  If you need supplies please shop at on Online Store.  Have a wonderful day   Until next time.  Toodles




The Perfect Little Snowman



Hello Everyone – I wanted to share this oh so cute digital image that I found the other day.  It's a new release from Wee Stamps and I just fell in love with it.  I think all snowmen are precious and I love all of them.   I've colored two so far using my Copics, one in Mauves and Pinks with Gray and the other with Blues and Grey and a little black for the snowman hat.  I'm going to color a few more of these but I think I like the circle layout the best.  My snowflakes are from Stampin' Ups new set called Holiday Home.  It has a bunch of very small images to coordinate with the home images.  My paper doily was spritzed with some Coastal Cabana Ink.  I had to spray it several times to get the intensity of color that I liked.  My sentiment is also new.  It was a freebie from Stampin' Up for placing a large order.  It's called Good Greetings.  My sayings inside my card are from Wonderous Wreath which is another new set that you can find in our Holiday Mini.  Lots and lots of new stuff in our new mini, be sure and check it out.  I also used a little of our Dazzling Details for that little sparkle that we like on our Christmas Cards.  It's a glitter glue and is so much easier to use that real glittler.  LOL  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have fun with this little image and WOW your friends with this cute Christmas Snowman Card.  Need supplies?  Click below for all your Stampin' Up needs.  Take Care.  Toodles
