Christmas Is In The Air With Festival of Trees


Hello Folks.. . . .  Happy day to all.  Today I have the cutest Christmas Card to share with you using our "Festival of Trees' stamp set.  You can find it in the Holiday Catalog.  You can purchase this in a bundle which includes the stamps set and it's matching punch.  You will save 15% when you buy the bundle.  Every little bit helps.  

My card base is one of our new In Colors Lost Lagoon.  I paired it up with some Night of Navy. I call this a frame card.  I used two nesting frame circles and made a ring in a contrasting color.  I used a retired snowflake set, any thing you have on hand will work.  As I mentioned my colors are Night of Navy, Whisper White and Lost Lagoon.  My sentiment is from "Good Greetings"  I got this set FREE a while back when Stampin' Up was having a promotion.  Speaking of promotions, Stampin' Up is in the middle of our Extravaganza Sale right now.  Save as much as 50% on selected products.  Click here to view our flyer.  Oh I almost forgot to mention there are a couple Paper Pumpkin kits on sale as well.  Stamps and inks are not included.

Four Feather and Matching Die Cut


Hello Folks. . .  hope all is well. Today I have a unique card to share.  I'm using one of our newer stamp sets called "Four Feathers".   This set is a great all occasion stamp set and I love it.  Today's colors are Coastal Cabana, Basic Grey and Whisper White.  I used one of our embossing folders "Decorative Dots" on my Basic Grey piece.  Full of texture don't you think. My focal point is a 2 x 4 piece of WW.  I used our Scallop Tag Punch and tied a piece of Basic Grey Satin Ribbon to it.  I wanted to use our Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.  It has a whole host of great words to use.  My idea was for the word Celebrate to stand out, so I placed it in a spot so you can see the whole word.  My feathers are CC and BG.  This stamp set has a coordinating die cut.  So quick and easy to make perfect feathers.  I added a pretty button with stripped twine to finish off the grouping.  You know the design rule is to work in threes, whether working with paper or house decorating.  On the inside I used Happy Birthday from Sassy Salutations.  It has such a whimsy font, one of my favs.


I hope you enjoyed my card and don't forget to take advantage of our Extravaganza Sale that runs till Dec. 2nd.   As much as 50% off on selected products.  I'm excited tomorrow is my day to start prepping for Thanksgiving Dinner.  Everyone have a great Thanksgiving.  Gobble Gobble Take Care until next time.  Toodles

A Special Christmas Gift


Hello Folks. . .  hope you all are doing well and staying warm.  It has been very cold here but it looks like we will be warming up this weekend but along with it brings some rain.  God Bless those poor people in Buffalo, NY.  Can't imagine being snowed in like that.

Today I have a cute little gift idea to share with you.  I found these on the internet the other day.  I will be hosting our neighborhood Bunco group next month and I always like to have a special gift for them.  These are perfect.  Here's is how I made these.

Box base is cute at 2 x 4 1/4 inches made wih Cherry Cobler.  I used our Scallop Tag Punch to make the back panel of my box. Next is a 3 x 4 piece of Cherry Cobbler scored on the 4" side at 1/2, 1, 3 and 3 1/2.  Turn and score at 1/2 and 1.  Crease your folds good and cut out your tabs.  I used sticky tape to attach to the back of my box.  It is embellished with a little Crumb Cake, Designer Series Paper from our Trim a Tree Paper Pack and Whisper White.  The stamp set is our Festival of Trees inked in Gumball Green.  I used our coordinating punch to punch out the trees.  You can save a little $$ by purchasing this as a Bundle.  This Bundle can be found in the Holiday catalog on page 24.  I added some of our Linen Thread and a Candy Dot.  Inside I made a little confetti and inserted a Hershey's Miniature Candy Bar. These would be great teachers gifts.


This is what the front box looks like

Polar Express (Retired)


Hello Folks. . .  I've got another oldie but goodie.  I was so excited to share this card with you and then the blog went  hay wire.  So here we go.  I've been looking for this stamp set for a couple of years now.  I'm so happy that I was finally able to find it.  

Actually there is not much to it, but simple is sometimes better.  My card stock is Coastal Cabana.  I used a couple of different designer papers.  My image is stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  There's not a whole lot of room for detailed shadowing so just color and have fun.  I added some sparkle with Dazzing Details,  So much easier than glitter.  I haven't decided what to put on the inside yet.  It coud be added to my Christmas Card Stash or made into a winter birthday.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Need Supplies.  My Online Web Store is open 24/7 just click on the link below.  Just in case I don't get back here I would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Turkey day is almost here.  I can smell all that heavenly food coming from my kitchen already.  Until next time.  Toodles



Fall Fun and a Little Fund Raising


Hello Folks. . .  Sorry for being MIA for so long.  Was having blog technicalities.  Happens every once in a while.  Meanwhile I was busy.  This is my favorite time of the year for crafting.  I volunteer at the local hospital a couple days a week.  This week is our big Extravaganza.  It's one of our biggest fund raisers for the year.  I love to bake so I volunteered to make some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (oh so yummy!!!).  I needed something to put them in that was easy for the volunteers to sell plus I wanted a WOW factor.  This is what I came up with.  

I cut a 12 x 12 piece at 5.5 x 10 and scored down each side at 1/2 inch.  Then I tunred it and scored at 5" to create a pocket.  Then I just decorated it with a fall theme.  The pumpkin is one of my favorite punch art techniques.  I used our 1 3/4" oval punch, sponged around the edges with Early Expresso and used a retired sentiment.  My ribbon is our retired 1 1/4" Stripped Ribbon.  So sorry to see it gone it ties like butter.  This is a great way to use some of your designer paper and buy some more.  LOL

These are going in the cute pocket holders

Thanks for sticking with me, I hope you enjoyed todays project.  If you need supplies please shop at my Online Web Store.  Have a great stamping day.  Until next time.  Toodles
