Using Plaids from Frostwood

Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Frostwood Designer Paper Delicate Doillies

Hello Folks. . . Happy Thursday

First things first I want to wish Kayleigh a Happy Happy 13th Birthday.  Today I will be spending a lot of time getting ready for her special evening.

My card today is a Christmas one, boy it's not that far away, maybe six weeks.  Now is the time to be making your Christmas Card list and gettin' those supplies ready to go.

The card I have to share today is clean and simple using some of our new desiger paper called Frostwood.  I'm a plaid lover so I especially like this designer paper pack.  My card base is Cherry Cobbler matted with Whisper White.  My next layer is Garden Green punched with my fav the Scallop Trim Border Punch and matted with a Houndstooth paper from Frostwood.  Next is another layer of Cherry Cobbler and some more plaid.  My focal poin it a Scallop Circle, pick whatever size you like, I nested it with some circles.  My stamp set is Delicate Doillies (W122590/C122592), boy I bet you are thinking that's not a Christmas set, but it works pretty darn good, don't you think?  It kind of has a quilt look to it so I added some bling for a little pizzazz.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs (W122495/C122497).  It sure does feel good to have a matching sentiment set.  Now we have words for both the outside and the inside.  Good job Stampin' Up. 

Now it's your turn.  I would love to see some of your creations.  I'm always looking for new inspiration.

I hope you enjoyed this down home Christmas Card and that it gets you in the mood to make some of your own.  I would love to be your Stampin' Up Demonstrator, so if you need any supplies or have any questions please contact me.  You can place your orders in my On Line Stampin' Store or I would love to place the order for you.  Just email me with your choices and away we go. 

Thanks for stopping in today.  Until next time, have a wonderful stamping day.  Toodles

Snow Much Fun With Button Buddies

Good Morning Ya All.  Happy Thursday !!

Stampin Up Button Buddies, Snow Much Fun  Christmas Card Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Today I have a Christmas Card to share with you using the snowman stamp from Button Buddies

There are quite a few layers on this one.  My cardbase is Shimmary White, topped with a piece of Poppy Red DP from A Pocketful of Posies.  Next I pulled out a Baja Breeze piece from Pocketful of Posies  and mounted it on SW too.  I still have aother layer using a piece of Basic Black from the Neutral Designer Series Pater.  Now for the fun stuff.  For my pretty lacey circle I used a nestie but Stampin' Up now has a brand new die cut called Perfect Pennants that will work beautifully.  It's on my wish list.  LOL  I stamped my image on SW and nested it on a punched Basic Black circle.  For the red hat I stamped Mr. Snowman again in Poppy Red and cut it out with our Snips.  Easy Peasy!!!

For my sentiment I made a flag and stamped the words from Snow Much Fun.  Added a small flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch for some added pizzazzzzzzzzz!!!  I tied a bow with our 5/8" Whisper White Satin Ribbon, placed a red button with our Cherry Cobber twine and tied another bow.

I'm still working on my medallions.  I hope to have them finished soon.  I have to decided on the size of the wreath.  I think I'm going with a 7" round.

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.

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).

Cute As A Button Oops Snowman

Stampin Up Christmas Card Snow Much Fun Buy 3 Designer Paper Pack Get One FREE

Hello There Folks.  Are you having a super duper morning?  Today I have my last Christmas Card to share, for right now anyway.  I fell in love when I saw the tall skinny snowman in Stampin' Ups new stamp set Snow Much Fun W122560 C122562.  My colors are Pool Party #122924, Not Quite Navy #101722 and Shimmery White Paper #1019010  for just a touch of sparkle.  I stamped him with Black Stazon Ink and used markers to color him in.  I tried something a little different this time.  I used Basic Gray for his hat and boots instead of Basic Black.  I think it gave him a softer look on the Pool Party background.  For his nose I also used a different color, Calypso Coral.  It worked just fine, don't you think? I wanted to use snowflakes for my background paper so I made my own.  If you have followed my blog you already know I love stamping my own background papers.  I choose to use Serene Snowflakes W115438. They are inked in Pool Party and Not Quite Navy. Did you notice the pretty blueruffeled ribbon.  Well that's our new In Color Ribbon.  Pool Party #122975.  You may not be able to see it in the picture but it has a little ruffle to it.  Just beautiful. 

We just finished up our first round of the Ribbon Share.  Click here for all the details.  If you would like to participate in a ribbon share with us, I would be happy to do another one.  I need (4) four participates before I can place an order.  Drop me an email if you would be interested.

A MOJO Sketch With Polar Party

Scallop Easel Card Christmas Card Stampinup Summer Mini $99 Starter Kit

Good Morning. . .   I don't normally do round cards but after looking at some of this weeks MOJO Monday cards I decided it was time to make a round card.  Have you tried you hand at an Easel Card yet, well today I have a Scallop Circle Easel Card to share.  At my last stamp club I was lucky enough to be able to purchase several new stamp sets from the new catty and this is one of them.  It's called Polar Party #122677 and I thought it could be one of my Christmas Cards this year.  You can find instructions on how to make this card by just Googling "Scallop Circle Easel Card"  My colors are Whisper White, Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.  The sketch is this weeks MOJO Sketch.  I colored my image with SU markers (Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose.  Added some glitter glue for a touch of sparkle.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs #122497.  Cool Tools are the Large Oval Punch $119855 and the Scallop Oval Punch #119856.  I also used the Snowflake Punch #119852 to dress it up even more.  The sketch called for a tag so I pulled out Tiny Tags #118592 and punched it with the Jewelry Tag Punch #117190.  My pretty ribbon is from the 1/2" Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon.  There you have it an easy peasy cute Christmas Card with a shape that will WOW the person who receives it.

A Very Special Gift Bag

Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Sneek Peeks Occasions Mini

Hello My Crafty Friends. . .  Hope you're having a super duper morning.  Today I am sharing a cute little gift bag that I have made for my exchange with my Bunco Friends.  I took a brown paper sack and cut it down just a little.  I stamped snow flakes all over it in Craft Whisper White.  My stamp sets are Serene Snowflakes and Delightful Decorations.  I used the top note die cut for my closure and added a very specail tag to it.  The tag itself is not Stampin' Up, but everything else is.  I stamped the ornament in Cherry Cobber three times on Very Vanilla and used our Ornament Punch.  Next I adhered two of the ornaments together back to back and scored down the middle.  I took another ornament and adhered it to the tag and then topped it with my other ornament piece.  This gives you the 3D effect.  I used three snowflakes from the Northern Frost die cut and added them to the tag with some pretty organdy ribbon that is now retired.  I used one of our new Glimmer Brads from the Holiday Mini.  Added some glitter and a few jewels and you have one very special tag for a very special gift.
