Hardwood from Stampin' Up!

Hope your weekend is going well.  Here's a card we made at Stamp Club this week.
I had been seeing the Scalloped top tag topper punch cards all over Pinterest and just had to try making one.  I always like to teach new things at stamp club and thought this would be a great one.  Plus it was a great opportunity to use my new Hardwood Stamp.

For the base, I used Crumb cake cardstock.  If you go to this YouTube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EAVN9OTerI
 you can see how to make it.  Once you get the concept, it's really pretty easy.

I stamped the Hardwood stamp with Soft Suede ink and then cut a strip to put on the top piece and cut some "planks" to go across.  The Vintage Trinkets brads work perfectly for your "nailheads".  The planks are raised by dimensionals.

On top, we stamped Strawberry Slush ink onto Whisper White using the Flower Shop stamp set punched out by the Pansy punch.  In the middle of the flower, we used the same ink and cardstock with the Petite Petals stamp set punched out with the coordinating punch.  For the center of the flower I punched out a Gumball Green cardstock with the Itty Bitty punch pack with a Basic Pearl in the middle.

The leaves are Gumball Green cardstock punched out with the Bird Builder punch

I stamped off the Strawberry Slush ink onto the inside of the card.

What is so neat about this card is the two "tag ends" that keep the card closed by tying the Strawberry Slush Stitched Satin Ribbon into a bow.

Loved it!  Have a great week!

Happy Congratulations from Stampin' Up!

Happy Day to you!   Here's a card that we made at Stamp Club.
We used the Happy Congratulations stamp set.   This was one of the first stamp sets that I wanted out of the Everyday Occasions catalog.    

The card base is Smoky Slate layered with Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper and on top of that we added another Smoky Slate layer with Whisper White.  On top we stamped the lanterns twice with Staz-on Black ink.  What is neat about this set is that the lanterns are separate from the outline.    The lanterns are stamped with Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate.  The other lanterns are inked up, stamp off once and then stamped onto the card in Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green and Island Indigo.

Here's a fun little twist...a hidden tag that slides under the top layer.  All you have to do is put dimensionals around the 3 sides and it allows for the tag to slide right under the layer.

This phrase on the tag is out of the Happy Congratulations stamp set....."may happiness be your destination".  The Happy Birthday is from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set stamped with Island Indigo ink.

On top we punched some flowers out of Silver Foil Sheets with the Itty Bitty Shapes punch and added some rhinestone jewels to the middle of each flower.

Have a great day, thanks for stoppin' by!  Order here anytime

Eggstra Spectacular from Stampin' Up! Part II

Hi!  Here's another fun project I made using the Eggstra Spectacular stamp set.  

I wrapped a Red Hots candy box with Whisper white Cardstock and on the edge, I attached a strip of Blushing Bride that was punched out with the Scalloped Edge Punch.

On top of that I punched a mini tag with the Scalloped Top Tag punch, stamped the bunny with Staz On onto Blushing Bride cardstock, colored in the bunny body with the chalk marker and tied a blushing bride stitched grosgrain ribbon.....love how the tag punch punches out a hole so you can do that.  After it was stamped and punched, I ran it through the polka dots embossing folder.

Here's a picture of my punched and stamped tags....kind of fun!

I made these for a shop space I have.  I made them using Pool Party too.

 I thought they were really sweet!  Perfect for an Easter basket.

Have a great day!  Thanks for stoppin' by!

Eggstra Spectacular from Stampin' Up!

Hello!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!   Here's a sweet card we made at a recent class.
This new Eggstra Spectacular stamp set is so sweet.  I just love this bunny!

I took Blushing Bride cardstock for the card base and layered it with whisper White cardstock that I ran through Stripes Embossing Folder.    On top of that I layered Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper.  The tag was created out of Crumb Cake cardstock that I punched out with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch....just love how it punches the fun top of the tag.    I stamped the bunny with Black Staz-On ink and colored it in with the Chalk Marker including the tail.  Over the Chalk Marker, I colored the tail with the Blushing Bride marker.

At the bottom of the tag, I used he Scallop edge border punch.  On top of the bottom of the tag, I cut a small piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, ran it through the polka dot embossing folder and also ran that through the Scalloped edge border punch.

Across the tag, I ran a strip of Blushing Bride Chevron Ribbon and on top of that, I ran a strip of Blushing Bride Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  I also ran the Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon on top of tag.

Lastly, I punched out three Blushing Bride flowers with the Itty bitty Shapes Punch Pack...dotted with 3 rhinestone jewels.

Hope you enjoyed this card!  Take care and have a great day!

Happy Stampin'

Gift Bow Die Gift Card Holder from Stampin' Up!

Super Fun gift card holder!  Here's my gift card holder from Stamp Camp.  I thought it was really fun for any occasion!
My inspiration was from page 16 on a box but I knew that I wanted to make a gift card holder too.

I used the gift bow die to cut the cute bow out of the Seasons of Style Designer Paper and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.   The base is Crumb Cake run through the Chevron embossing folder which I layered an old olive banner that I ran through the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  Not sure if you can see it but on the lip of the flap, I ran a piece of Silver Glimmer paper which was cut out by the Tasteful Trim die.  Just a subtle little bling that really completes the card.  

I created the tag by the Holly Jolly stamp out of the Tags 4 You stamp set punched out perfectly with the Label Bracket punch.  Tied a big loop with the Espresso Bakers Twine and attached into the bow.  So fun!  Of course I added to one more piece of bling with the large rhinestone in the middle.


When you lift the tab, it pulls up the gift card.

I could totally see this as a birthday themed gift card holder as well.

Place an online order on my store, and I'll mail you this gift card holder along with the instructions as a thank you!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'

Festive Flurry from Stampin' Up!

Loving the elegance of this card from our recent Stamp Camp.  
It's so hard because this card is stunning and it really doesn't showoff that well in the pictures.  

The Festive Flurry Framelits Dies are great to use by themselves or with the coordinating stamp set.  Here we used just the framelits with the beee-utiful Champagne Glimmer paper.  

The beauty of the framelits is there are 4 different sizes making a perfect layer from the outside to the inside.


This is really a pretty easy card but with the glimmer paper it really steps it up so you don't think about it's easy.

Use the framelit to punch out the middle of the front and then just line up the two snowflakes, add some BLING with the rhinestones and stamp your phrases from Christmas Messages stamp set stamped in Soft Suede ink.

Easy and Elegant, what more can you ask for?!!!!

Gift Bow Die from Stampin' Up!

Lovin' the new Gift Bow Die in the Holiday Catalog.  Here's a fun little card from our recent Stamp Camp.

The two papers are from the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.   I just love that the different designs in our designer papers match each other....makes it so easy when you're in a pinch for time....no searching for something that matches, there's 11 different designs in one pack.

I don't know about you but I don't always have a lot of time to put together a card so I can see grabbing ANY of our DSP to duplicate this card and switch it up for different occasions.

This one is perfect for Christmas.  All we did is use the die to cut out the bow and the tails and added a Frosted Finishes Embellishment in the middle......easy peasy!  Stamp the phrase from Joyful Christmas with Bermuda Bay ink, punch it out with the oval punch and popped it with a dimensional.
