Craft Fair Project

Hi All!  the countdown continues until Christmas.  This past weekend, I participated in a Christmas Bazaar and on Instagram posted the following photo:
What will this become?
As promised in the post, here's the outcome - Santa Kisses! 

Santa Kisses using Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set & Punch
The Santa Kisses were a popular item and so easy to prepare the packaging.  The Santa from the Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas set was stamped onto Whisper White card stock and punched using the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight and Blushing Bride were used to color Santa.  It doesn't show in the photograph, but the fur along Santa's hat and suit were highlighted with clear Wink of Stella.  The tag was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink using the sentiment from Oh, What Fun stamp set.  Since I have a stockpile of retired 4" x 6" cellophane bags, I used them but the 3" x 6" Gusseted Cellophane Bags would work great.  I folded down approximately one inch of the bag and added a tag topper cut from the Be Merry Christmas Designer Series Paper.  A couple of staples along the bottom edge of the paper sealed both the cello bag and the topper.  

If you're looking for a quick and easy treat holder for table favors or stocking stuffers, these are perfect!

Silver & White = Elegant!

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  The countdown is on for Christmas so in this month's card class, the focus was on Christmas cards.  One of the card designs was inspired by Linda Heller's Stamping School. The whisper white cardstock with the silver accents creates an elegant look.  Combining texture embossin and heat embossing definitely creates a card with the "wow" factor.  So pull out your embossing tools and have fun creating!  And don't forget the envelope...

Preparing for the Holidays!

Is it just me or are you also thinking that Christmas seems to arrive much sooner each year!?  With the holiday quickly approaching, it's time to start making Christmas cards to send to family and friends.  One of my favorite holiday stamp sets from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is Carols of Christmas.  It's nice to have stamps with bold sentiments.  The design is CASED from Stampin' Up! with a change of colors to red versus the black colors in their design.  To create snow on the branches of the trees, use the fine-tip glue pen to outline edges and sprinkle the glue while still wet with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter.  Don't forget to jazz up your envelope...the stars stamp used is from the Star of Light stamp set.

98th Birthday for Ms. Lorraine!

At this time last year, I shared a birthday card for a friend's mother, Ms. Lorraine, who was celebrating her 97th birthday.  This year we celebrated her 98th birthday so naturally a special card was in order.  For the card, I combined the flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and the sentiment from the Number of Years stamp set.  The Large Numbers Framelits Dies were used to cut the celebratory number.  Powder Pink cardstock was used for the base and for cutting the number.  The flower was stamped using Archival Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Stampin' Write Markers in Blushing Bride, Old Olive and So Saffron were used to color the flower.  Notice that the large flower was only outlined with the pink.  The olive green layer is found in the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP) package.  The 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Powder Pink was used to complete the card.

Jack-o-Lantern Spinner Card

In the last card class, I decided to introduce the technique of making a spinner card and the Seasonal Chums Bundle made the process easy.  Since Halloween is approaching, the jack-o-lantern from the set was selected for the card design. Stampin' Write Markers were used to color the leaves and jack-o-lantern features but the Watercolor Pencils would work too.  Notice that the inside of the card is backed with a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Spooky Night DSP package and a small strip of Very Vanilla is stamped with the Happy Halloween greeting from the Spooky Cat stamp set is peeking through the opening.

Honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month

For the card class this past Monday, I thought it appropriate to include a Pink Ribbon card using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set bundle in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Powder Pink cardstock and ink, as well as, the same color in the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack were used for creating the card.  The sentiment was stamped in Smoky Slate on the Whisper White cardstock oval.  It is a simple card to make but conveys a wonderful message.

Halloween Treat Bag

I must admit that I am not a cat person but when I saw the cat punch in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, I knew it had to go onto my must have list.  Since several friends have cats, the punch will get lots of use.  What is great is that the punch coordinates not only with the Spooky Cat stamp set but also the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).  For the treat bag below, I used the cat punch to cut the black cat from the DSP. The witches hat was fussy cut for the DSP also.  The cutting instructions for the treat bag are from Angie Juda.
