Stampin' Addicts Occcasions Mini Blog Hop - Send Me Soaring

It's Stampin Up! time for a new mini catalog so that means it's time for another awesome Stampin' Addicts blog hop featuring the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog! I love the fun and exciting new accessories in this mini!!

There are only 16 stops on the hop this time around and if you are hoping in order you just came from Debra's site Heartfelt Inkspiration where she is featuring the new Embosslits Die - Fashionable Hearts. This die is for sure on my must have list (along with many other things!)!!!

The set I am showcasing today is the set Send Me Soaring! Ijust had to have this set as I have many pages to scrap with pics of my boys flying kites when they were smaller. Kite flying was one of their favorite afternoon activities. My first project is this simple but fun card.

My next project I used the petite pocket die to create this awesome gift card holder!

Lastly I was trying to come up with something different to do with this set and the kite with the circles reminded my of a graham cracker so I came up with this little beauty!

I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I have!! The next stop on the hop is Sara's site Lily's Ink Pad where she is featuring the Packed for Everything sets. If you have time be sure to stop by the Stampin' Addicts blog hop chat thread and let us know what you thought about the hop!! Happy Stamping!

One last Christmas Project

I was getting some blog post ready for the next few days and realized I never shared this box I made with the stocking die. I made two sides to this box and then placed them on both sides of the #2 box. I decorated it all up with the stocking die accents. Making this with all big shot dies made this a super fast and easy project to give as gifts! Happy Stamping!!

Merry Christmas!!

I hope that each of you have gotten to spend time with your Family and Friends during this holiday season! Here is my last Christmas project I have to share ....

It's a cute little gift card holder I made using the stocking die. To keep the gift card staying close to the cuff when I tape the two stocking together I ran a length of tape across the middle so the gift card would not slide down into the card. Happy Stamping!!

Stocking Die Card

I needed a few real quick Christmas cards and I had these stockings already cut out and begging to be used.I just scored along the left edge of the back stocking and the taped them together. I added all the embellishments to give them some dimension. And then I sponged it with versamark and glitter to give a bit of sparkle! I thought they looked great and so did they gals who got them for Christmas cards!! Happy Stamping!

Decor Stencils

Sorry I wasn't around for the last few weeks. I had some personal things that came up and kept me away from blogging and a few other things good thing I had a few posts scheduled before hand. In my absence I my blog hit 100,000 page views! How exciting was is that!! Right after the holidays I will post a little blog candy so be sure to check back!

This was a simple card I made for a Non Secret Sister exchange I am doing with my SU Friends group using our Vintage Ornaments decor stencil. I sponged the ornament in real red and then used some stencil paste on the swirl. Before the paste dried I sprinkled on some of the aqua colored glitter from our glitter stacks. I used the vintage wallpaper EF on the pacific point cardstock to give it a bit more texture and then layered it all together! Happy Stamping!!

Tree Trimmings

Here's a card I made using the tree trimmings set. I seem to like to use blue colors on my Christmas cards!! This one uses Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze. I also used the tasteful trim die as well as the Snow Burst embossing folder. It was a fairly simple layout but a beautiful card!! Happy Stamping!!

Christmas Flower

This was I believe another card I made for a swap for the Stampin' Addicts get together at convention, (I still have several to share after the holidays ... I'm a bit behind). I used my vintage wallpaper embossing folder and inked it up with early espresso ink before I ran it through the big shot to get the double colors, then I water colored some shimmer paint into the debossed parts to give a bit of shimmer to it. The stamped flower is from Raining Flowers and the cut out flower is cut from the fun flowers die. Happy Stamping!!

Merry and Type Take 1

I have several versions of cards made with the Merry & Type stamp set I will be sharing the next few days. This card I made as a couple of Thank You's for some trades I did with a couple of fellow demos. I think I was into this color combo as the card I shared the other day was similar. I'm not sure how well the photo to the right shows this but I dry embossed the image shape (from the back) to give the ornaments a bit of dimension to them. They have this cool 3-d effect to them. I also add some shimmer paint to them to give them a little extra shine. In person it just looks sooo much cooler. Happy Stamping!!

Stitched Stockings

I made this card I think for a swap. I used the peekaboo die, stocking builder punch and Stitched Stocking to make this card; oh and also the snow burst embossing folder!! All of these items can be found in the holiday mini catalog. I like how simple but cool this card is AND it's great card for a guy too! Happy Stamping!

Christmas Clean and Simple

I've shown a lot of 3-d things so thought I would share a few cards. This card was a swap I made waaaay back during convention and is a CAS card ( clean and simple). This card use the set Easy Events. The little red scallop peeking out along the edge is the dotted scallop ribbon border punch. I colored the holly in with my markers then added some iridescent ice to the red berries to give a little bit of sparkle! Happy Stamping!!

Giftable Class Project #6

This was the last project we created. The group of gals I stamp with have been wanting to learn how to make the box in the bag created by Diana Gibbs. So I came up this mini one for them to make. The were surprised in how easy and cute this is to make!! Which makes it perfect to make a bunch of them to hand out to friends or coworkers. We used the tree trimmings stamp set and boy does the glimmer paper really sparkles on this bag!! Happy Stamping!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you all get to spend time with Family and Friends today! And if you go shopping tonight be careful ...

This next project I got from my secret sister so I'm not sure who to credit with the original idea.

Giftable Class Project #3

I didn't capture the best picture for this project but it is a rosette ornament. The black paper is actually the flocked grey and black piece from Mocha Morning DSP. It really gives them an elegant look to the ornament! We then layered it with a piece of whisper white cardstock I ran through my vintage wallpaper embossing folders. The image is from Merry & Type which I punched out with an oval punch and layered with a cardstock cut with the decorative label punch. We also added touches of glitter to the edges to really make it sparkle! Happy Stamping!

Giftable Class Project #2

This next project was rally simple to make but it's really cute. We used the small set of Merry Trees decor elements to decorate the mugs. You get 4 little trees and the word Merry that I'll be using on another project.

Once we had the mugs all done we added a few little goodies; cocoa, peppermint tea and some candy canes. These would be perfect to make for neighbors, friends or coworkers and they are pretty quick to put together! Happy Stamping!
