Rustic Rooster Card

I had gotten the Rustic Rooster set when it was a free host set during the last catalog. So this stamp set has sat around waiting to be used for a bit. This is the card that I inked it up for.

This card almost didn't make it to the person I made if for because I liked it so much!! I know she did too! Happy Stamping!!

Dasher Cards

I had a friend at work that asked me to make a card for her husband. So played around with my Dasher stamp.

In real life you can see that Dasher is misted with shimmer paint spray and adds a nice touch to the card still leaving it masculine. I liked the card so much I had to make another one with a few differences.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas Eve! Happy Stamping!!

Paper Ornament

I was looking to make something special for my family for Christmas. AND I wanted it to be quick and simple ... because as usual I waited until the last minute to make them. So I came up with these little ornaments.

Here are a couple of close ups of them.

I took strips of 12x12 Christmas Cocoa DSP to make them with some basic paper folding. I glued the ends together to create the circle. Then added a scallop circle and circles I punched out after stamping them with Delightful decorations. Topped it off with some red embroidery thread I had and a button. Ohh I almost forgot I added a thin line of crystal effects around the edge so I could add a bit of glitter!! Hopefully it will be add to their trees year after year!! Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Card

As usual I was behind in making and getting my Christmas cards mailed out. I'm surprised that I actually even mailed them out!! I know I'm terrible but here is the card I made this year.

I kept it simple not only because of time but so that they would easily go through the mailing system. I have had previous card get to the recipient in shreds, needing extra postage, bent and broken or just never making it at all. So this time I made it using flat layers with only one off them puffed up. To add a little bling I used iridescent ice to the tree, plus the DSP has a bit of a metallic hint to it. I love how it came out!! Happy Stamping!!

Gift From The Heart

For the last several years I have participated in a gift swap with a Yahoo group I'm with. This year as I was deciding what to do I had made this card:

I liked the concept of the card a thought it would look even better as a door hanger so I made these:

But after making these two I realized it would take me forever to make them with the embossing paste so I used versamark and embossing powder on the rest of them (like the card) and they came out super cute! I hope that they found their gift useful! Happy Stamping!!

No Stamping

I don't think I have ever made a card with absolutely no stamping on it ....

I think it came out well! I used some left over rub ons I had when I made the glitter ornaments. Happy Stamping!!

Gift Box and Card

I actually made this as a possibility for my Christmas giftables class but it didn't quite make the cut.

I liked it but it was just a little to plain for the wow factor I wanted. So instead I will be using it to put a gift in. It's actually a good size box measuring 6x3x4, it'll hold a lot of chocolate!

And this was the little 3x3 card to go with it.

Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Giftables Class - Project # 6

Here is the last project we made. This is so much more glittery in person!

We took a notebook and altered the cover. We used the vintage ornament stencils and then added the dimensions with embossing paste sprinkled with glitter before it dried. You should see how much it sparkles!!

The next picture is of the little red tote I stenciled using our shimmer paste and then popped a rhinestone brad into to add a bit more bling.

This was part of the free gift everyone got for attending ... I had it filled it up with lots of goodies. Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Giftables Class - Project #5

Here is project #5. This was another fairly easy project ... well except for trying to cut circles out of tissue paper.

We took tea light candle and transformed them to be a bit more decorative by adding stamped tissue to the centers. Just lightly warm the candle with your heat gun until the tissue paper is absorbed. We punch a small circle for the wick before heating them. The box was made using the Christmas Cocoa DSP. Basically I just made the measurement to fit 3 tea lights. The top is made using our window sheets. Happy Stamping!

Christmas Giftables Class - Project #4

Here is project number 4! These are rather simple to make if you have a little patience.

All you do is take the clear glass bulbs drop some reinker into and roll it around until it is covered entirely. It does talk a bit but well worth the wait. After the ink has covered the glass ball then you sprinkle in the glitter. I then added a bit of ribbon and a rub on. Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Giftables Class - Project #3

Here's project #3. This is one of those quick and easy gift ideas!! This would be perfect if you needed to make a bunch in a hurry!

I just covered the peppermint patties using my scallop punch and my circle punch. The stamp set I used was Delightful Decorations from our Holiday Mini. I then slide them into a pretzel bag that you can get at a craft or candy supply store. On the left you can see a close up of the tag I made. The little crystal is one of the crystal brads that I popped out of the brad. Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Giftables Class - Project #2

Boy we had a ton of fun with the Christmas class!! Everyone seemed to love the projects!! I know I did :) Here is another one we made:

It's actually one of the clear envelope scrapbooks like the one made here. I got the idea for the trees from the ever so wonderful Brandi Wiggins and she got the idea from someone else. These are real easy to put together just takes a few times to get the folds just right. Basically it's a half circle which I embossed with the embossing folder then folded to make the tree shape. The stumps I ran through a crimper. I have to tell you IRL it looks even better! Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Giftables Class - Project #1

I haven't had a chance to post in awhile as I have been feverishly creating things for my Christmas Giftables class. If you already ready for my class tomorrow I have to say that you will not be disappointed!!

Here is one of the projects we will be creating tomorrow.

Isn't it great!! I love how the big shot can be used on all kinds of different materials. This little pocket can be used for a gift card holder as seen here or perfect for other small gifts like movie tickets, tea bag holder, for candy canes, jewelry ... you get the idea!! I did stitch the edge free hand but the project is small so it only takes a minute! Happy Stamping!!
