Heart Treat Cups

I apologize for the flyer being in black and white. The format that I got the flyer from doesn't like me so I printed it off to scan and put here on my blog. I ran out of colored ink while I was printing so I redid it in black and white. The picture below shows the super cute examples in color that are on the flyer. I was able to copy and paste that. Tee hee hee... The heart shaped cups and stamp set will be available for purchase on January 5th. If you would like to have your own copy of the flyer sent to you via email please let me know.

Patterned Pines

Here is a card I made {during my long break away from my blog} using the Patterned Pines (Hostess set) from the Holiday mini. The card style is the Tri Shutter design. My mother had brought over a card she received using the technique tri Shutter and I loved it! So of course I had to try one for myself and this is what I came up with.

Stamps I used were the Patterned Pines and A Cardinal Christmas
Platinum Shimmer paint for the stamped images along with Close to Cocoa and Real red for sponging and sentiment inside. The DSP is from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty pack.
I made the medallion on the front underneath the real red by using the top note die.
If you have any questions about this card please feel free to email me. Thanks!

I'm still here

My apologies for neglecting my blog. Just with all that's going on with family and the holidays I have been so distracted. I did not hold a workshop in November and December but that doesn't mean I haven't done a few projects. So I have a new goal for the next few days and that is to post a few pictures of items I have made or that were shared with me. Thanks for your patients!

This card I created for my dad who's birthday is 3 days before Christmas. I am not very good at creating non-girly cards but I think this came out ok. I got the card layout from a stamper in Splitcoast but recreated it using stamps to fit my need. I hope you enjoy it!

Stamps used are Autumn Days and the retired Warmest Regards.
Card stock colors are Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry, Wisper White. The piece of DSP is from the Autumn Traditions paper pack.

Stampin Up Giraffe punch art

Today while my daughter lay on the couch sleeping because she is home sick with the flu I snuck down to my crafting table to make her a birthday card for next week. Her favorite animal is the giraffe and so I did some searching online and to find a giraffe I could make with Stampin Up punches. I came across Katy's blog at where she had posted a card with a very cute giraffe on it. She didn't say what punches she used but it looked simple enough to recreate. Here is my version her her card. I know my daughter is just going to love it!

If you would like to recreate this yourself and would like to know what punches and sizes things are that I used please send me an email and I can get those for you.

October Workshop Projects

Here are the projects we created at our October 17th workshop. Next month we will be creating projects to get you ready for Christmas.

The stamp set used here is the Autumn Harvest. Inside it holds candy corn with a little poem I found online that says: I started to carve a pumpkin with my carving knife and scoop, but the pumpkin got a little scared that he took a little poop. It looked so cute and funny just like a candy treat so I'm sharing it with you now, because you are so sweet.

This Give Thanks card was made using the Autumn Splendor stamp set from the current mini and the hostess set called Holiday Best. The scallop oval is one of our big shot dies that can be found in the current catalog.

On this card we again used the big shot to cut the leaves in the top corner which is being held in place by a library clip and then the texture plates for the background paper. We used the incolor markers to color the stamp from the Wandering Words set.

This tree was stamped with the Season of Friendship stamp set. Can you tell what we used again on this project? If you guessed the texture plates you are right!! I didn't realize how much I use the texture plates until this class. But also in this class everyone got to try out the new Circle Scissors Plus. Makes cutting circles a breeze.

I hope you enjoyed looking at the projects that were created this month. I hope you will join us next month when we try a workshop on a Friday. TFL!

Autumn Days

I needed a quick card to mail a couple photo's to Georgia and I found this card online. Although it wasn't quick I think its very cute!! The picture of this card did not turn out very good because again I am in a hurry for some crazy reason and this was the best one I could get that kind of showed the shadowing of the raised pieces. I used the Autumn Days stamp set with the soft suede ink from Stampin Up's new In Colors.

September 19th workshop

This months workshop was great! We had a wonderful stamper all the way from England. It was a real treat to have met her. I hope she comes back soon for another visit.
Here are the projects we made for this month.

Card holding candy. We used the new Sweet Treat cups and the Sweet Centers stamp set from the new Holiday Mini. The square on the front has a hinge so it can be untied then opened without having to rip apart the card. Colors used are Old Olive, Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry.

This project is a small fall picture book. For the front we used the Autumn Splendor stamp set from the Holiday Mini. The colors are Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, very Vanilla and Garden Green. We stamped the very vanilla with the Autumn Splendor stamps then turned the card stock over and made 1 inch lines going vertically and horizontally to make 9 small squares. Cut those squares out and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. We had also numbered the squares making it much easier to know which one goes where.

Here we did some water coloring with markers. We stamped the Autumn Harvest stamps with stazon then colored the inside of the images with a light color, outlined the image with a slightly darker color and finally we took a blender pen to blend the light and dark color together to soften the marker lines. The other technique we used was masking.

The final card we made was this Thinking of you card. It was created by using the Elegant Eggplant ink and card stock with the Kind & Caring thoughts stamp set.

If you have any questions on how these were created please feel free to email me and I can help you to recreate these yourself.

Knobbly Gnomes

I signed up to do a secret sister scavenger hunt swap. We were given a list of 10 things we needed to find or make to give as a secret gift to someone. Well I was having a hard time finding a mystical or magical item in the homestead so I decided to stamp her an image of something mystical or magical. So here is what my secret sister will get for that item. It's the Stampin Up's retired Knobbly Gnome image on a notepad. When I finished putting this together I wished I would have made 2 because I am in love with this little guy right now. He just makes me smile!

Medallion stamp

I used the medallion stamp to personalize the flower bouquet. I absolutely love this stamp it is beautiful and elegant.

August 21st workshop

After some postponements we finally had our monthly workshop. This month was a little more different than most because this time each guest needed to bring their precut pieces for the accordion purse that I had posted a month or so ago. I had it displayed at the last workshop and the ladies loved it and asked to make them. I was hesitant because it does takes a lot of 8x11 paper (maybe not so much with 12x12) but they asked if they had brought their own papers could they do it. I was fine with that and gave each guest the sizes they needed so they would be prepared for workshop day.

This card here was a card sketch challenge for SCS. I used the in color markers and the Three Little Words stamp set.

This is a gift card holder that I found instructions for from Chicknscratch. I thought it was so cute and wanted to share it with my stamping ladies. I used some different DSP and stamp sets but I think it still came out really cute! The stamp set used here was the That's Funny set.

Well that's all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed looking and if you happen to be in the Pierce County area of Washington state you would come join us for an afternoon of stamping! Until next time...... Happy Stamping!!

I love Stampin Up bracelet

I have recently seen a bracelet made from stamped shrinky dinks and I thought how cute was that!? So last night I had some extra time on my hands and I dug out my shrinky dinks. This is what I came up with. I used the Fresh Cuts stamp set and also the I love Stampin Up stamp. I went with the black and white theme so I could wear it with about anything.

Web Surfing

Today while searching for some inspiration on the web for Father's Day cards I came across 2 websites that had some very awesome projects! When I saw them I had to stop everything I was doing to try them.
The first project I found today was on splitcoast and it was made by Michelle. I don't know if there is anyone else like me but when I see something I love I usually make it just the way they have it and once I know the whole how to's of the project I redo them my own way. So below is kind of how Michelle made hers. It's not as good as hers but I am happy with it. If you would like to make this card here is the website that will give you the step by step instructions. I really think you should give it a try because it makes a very beautiful card. Thanks Michelle for posting this online and sharing the step by step for it. I LOVE IT!!
Stamp sets used are the Trendy Trees and Many Mower.

This next project I found online at . This accordion purse is sooooo stinkin cute I just had to have one! You know I thought when I was looking at it it was going to be very time consuming but in fact it wasn't. It was very quick. Well I guess that's all in thanks to the wonderful Maria Bell for putting her step by step instructions online for us. It would have been even faster had I read a little more carefully when it came to scoring and cut all the pieces I needed. If you look at the first picture you can see my OOPS score line I tried to buff out but couldn't. But even so it still came out wonderful. This project is another one of those must make projects. I hope you give it a try. Well that's all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by.
