crabby santa thank you

This is my Christmas thank you card. I love the dashing designer series paper. It is a shame it is being retired. Oh well out with the old and in with the new. There are a lot of cool paper in the new catalog. I colored in the crab with my aqua painter and watercolor crayons. The paper is 4/14 x 11 and folded at 51/2 and I scored it at 6 on one side. I attached to medium eyelets so it opens from the side. The fold is a little different I like it. I am going to try to post more often. It has been a busy two months. Thanks for looking and a Happy New Year!

Time well spent

This stamp set is a level 3 hostess set in the new catalog. I painted the vellum with watercolor crayons after I stamped the vellum with stazion.

Bag envelope with Pomegranate ribbon

Here is a cute bag I made out of an extra large SU! envelope. The way you make it is seal the envelope. Take a tag punch and punch down the side of the envelope till the handle and the bottom is the size you want it. That is it. It is pretty simple. The ribbon around the top is the Purely Pomegranate Satin ribbon. It feels so soft. I just love it. The stamp set is Punch Pals. I have a bag of Cocoa but you can barely see it. Let me know what you think.

Christmas Double Pocket card

This is my first double pocket card. This is the Dashing Desinger Series paper. I used the Real Red and Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon, with the Jumbo Antique Brass eyelets. They are perfect for threading the ribbon through. If you look at the bottom of the card there is a rhinestone brad.
I stamped this card with a set from the Mini catalog called Love & Joy. This set is great because you can use your 3/4th inch circle punch to punch out the words for the center of Joy. I used a Stampin' Dimensional to make the merry stand out. I also stamped the tags with Many Merry Messages. Let me know what you think.

Candy Time

This was a candy bar slide I made for a swap. It is really easy to make, and very yummy to eat!
I used the Desinger series paper Creepy Crawly . I cut the words off the paper and inked the edges (a project is not finished till the edges are inked!) I framed the with more Creepy Crawly paper. The cat stamp is one of the hostess stamp sets called Party Punch.

Cupcakes Card

Here is another card made with the Simply Sent card kit. I colored in the cupcakes with chalk which comes in the kit. This was a very simple card to make.

Altered Simply Sent Card

I am loving this Simply Sent card set. I was playing with it to see what other cards can be made with this. This is one of them. The colors are Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue and Cameo Coral. Friendship shapes it the stamp set. The tag comes out. I inked all the edges. I stamped the Bashful Blue with the circle stamp and punched it out with the scallop circle then cut down to the second ring. I stamped the stamp again with Cameo Coral and cut out the flower and attached it with a Stampin' dimensional. Let me know what you think.

Happy Boo to You

I am ready for Halloween and here is a card to get it started. I used Orchid Opulence CS and dyed the ribbon to match. I used the color spritzler tool with the Orchid Opulence marker and sponged the edges. I love the way the color spritzler tool looks. It is great because it can be used with any size marker. You can just take out the barrow and a bigger marker will fit. The closer you are to the paper the bigger the spray spots. The farther you are from the paper the smaller the spots are. The stamp set it Booglie Eyes. And the card is not finished till the edges are inked. Thanks for looking.

My Wow Christmas Card

This is my WOW card. I love the way it turned out. This was one of my swaps I did at Regionals last Saturday. I stamped glossy cardstock with Versamark and sprinkled clear embossing powder over it. Then heat set it. The background was also stamped with Versamark to give it the watermark look. I took a cotton ball and put rubbing alcohol on it. Then I used bashful blue and nights of navy reinker. I put 3 drops of each color on it and them pounced the cotton ball on to the glossy paper. Once it was dried I used a tissue and wiped the color off the embossed images. The stamps that were used were The Snowflake Spot , Holidays & Wishes, Bold Snowflakes jumbo wheel. Let me know what you think.

Fun with Dilly-Dally Wheel

This is a Thank You card I made with Fun and Fast notes and the Dilly-Dally Friends jumbo wheel. I love this wheel and I have been waiting to figure out what to use it with. I thinks it turned out okay. Let me know what you think.

Card Candy

I have started a new swap with other Stampin' Up Demonstrator for Card Candy and I want to explain and show some of the candy so they could see what it was all about. Card Candy is embellishments that you can remove and use on your cards or scrapbook pages. The card candy embellishment gets Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of it and stuck to wax paper that way it peels off. You place that into a cello bag and put a topper on top that says "Card Candy". My customers love it. It is easy to use when you are make a card. You have your card stock folded and you just add your card candy and there is your finished card. I just started making it this summer and I love to see what everyone comes up with. I use it at my workshop as a gift to my customers when the place an order. It is always neat to see what people like.

My Christmas Stamp a Stack

These are the 5 cards I am doing for my next 2 Stamp a Stacks in October. I have been in a lot of swaps over the summer and I have gotten some great stuff. Two of the cards I received in a swap. The Christmas tree I received from Carol Slack. I have changes her card a little but she gave me great ideas for the silver and the blue. I just love that card. The Let it Snow card I received in a swap from Brenda Witt. I love the bold snowflake wheel and the Big on Christmas stamp set. They went together perfect. The Santa card with the bow I found on Splitcoasterstamper and it was made by Troublesmom. I couldn't find her fun candy but I thought the bow went well with it. I also found cute light bulbs they will be able to use also. The Santa card I made has no stamping in it at all. I used all punches. The last card of the bunched, Happy Holidays, I used glossy paper and the new jumbo eyelets. They works so well with the Crop-A-Dile. That is all for now, let me know what you think. If you want to sign up for the class just send me an email.

Grey Christmas Card

My up line Janet had a meeting and this was one of our make -n-takes. It was very easy to do and turned out so pretty that I decided to use it as a make-n-that at my next workshop. My customers really liked it. I would of never thought of using the Charbon Designer Series Paper for a Christmas card. I really like the basic gray paper. And you get 40 sheets. That makes a lot of cards! It also featured the Pretties Kit. I just love the rhinestone brads. It also used the new Taffeta Ribbon. Let me know what you think.

Oh So Lovely Card

I love this card. The cute little bee buttons I got at Micheal's. I am making this card at a workshop this weekend. This card has the new colors (Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky) and the new hostess level one set (Oh So lovely). It also uses Stem Sayings stamp set. I colored it in with an aqua painter.

Season's Greetings

I am starting on Christmas cards. This is one of the cards I have made for a customer. The glitter really looks good on the tree.

Scratch and Sniff

This is a scratch and sniff card I just made. I used orange kool aid with embossing powder and make it stick with versamark reinker.

It smells so good!
