Treasure Chest turned Bird House

Treasure Chest - Pentagonal Shape -- This cute little chest was made using the video that Pootles from the UK made. I cut it smaller and made this neat little bird house to hold lots of little goodies. CLICK HERE to check out her blog! My friend suggested a bird house so I had to try it. I stamped the DSP using the new Hardwood Background Stamp set (which I love)

I added this to the post so you can actually see the pentagonal shape!

Thanks Pootles for all your cute little boxes. BTW she has lots of videos on YouTube featuring her boxes.

Until next time!

Challenge 241 - Dies and Framelits

This week we want to see what you can do using dies or framelits.  Be creative as you can. 

Here are some of our "rules" for participation

The challenges run for 2 weeks. The design team for the Late Night Stamper's Yahoo Group sponsor the challenges and do a great job inspiring our members. If you are not a member you are certainly welcome to join our group--click here--we are a bunch of stampers who love to use Stampin Up only products. If you don't want to join and just want to play along--that is ok too! We just ask that your samples remain at least 90% Stampin Up products. They do not have to be current products you can use your older stuff too! So to sum up our rules for you...
§ Anyone can play along!
§ All samples must be at least 90% Stampin Up products.
§ You have a full 2 weeks to play along and add your sample to the linky tool.
§ You MUST link to only the post that has the challenge item--NOT YOUR HOME PAGE OF YOUR BLOG!!! Your samples will be deleted if they do not link directly to the project!
§ Please add only new samples--do not link up samples from weeks ago this is a challenge to get you stamping more--not sharing more, lol!
§ Have fun and be sure to check out the other players too!

Double Tag Treat Box

Pootles posted this on her blog today and it was so cute I had to try one. Made with the new ScallopTag Topper punch from Stampin' Up. 133324

I used Cajun Craze as the base. Check out her blog for a video and instructions HERE. Thanks Pootles for such a neat idea! How cute would this be in RED for Valentine's Day. I put 2 (room for more) Hershey Nuggets inside!

Until next time!

I used this new Ampersand Embossing Folder 132970 just to show so I decided to make a card to show it off even more. I used the sentiment from Countless Sayings 2 135893 and paper from the Fresh Prints Tablet.

I accented the card with those really neat Candy Dots! Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time!

Peachy Keen Bundle

I received my Stampin Up shipment and love the Peachy Keen Bundle. You get the framelits and the stamp set! The paper is from the Fresh Prints Paper Stack 132996. Peachy Keen Stamp Set 133113 and the matching On Film Framelits 132969. You can buy these separate or as a bundle.

The card base is Coastal Cabana with Real Red and Basic Black accents. I hope SU continues to make the paper stacks. They are perfect for cards and you get lots of bang for your buck!

Until next time!

Die Overstamping

This card was inspired by Judy Jackson, the technique - Die Overstamping featured in the Technique Junkie Newsletter. To see Judy's card - CLICK HERE!

I did use my Silhouette to cut the design and the did the overstamping! What a great technique and so simple. Give it a try! I used SU Candy Dots & papers. Sentiment was from the Best of Snow Stamp Set and I used Festive Flurries for the snowflake BUT Best of Snow has a great snowflake you can use as well.

Until next time!

Valentine Card

Here's a quick card I made for Valentine's Day! I used the Fresh Prints Paper Stack ( I just love the fact SU is making these pads of paper) Sure makes a stamp a stack easier too.

I used the Expressions Thinlits Die (132171) and the Hearts Collection 125599! Quick and simple (non-SU ribbon)

Until next time!

Purse Gift Card Holder

My friend, SS, wanted me to make a card that looks like a purse. This fits a regular envelope and you can attach a gift card on the inside!

Wisteria Wonder is the color with Eggplant Envy accents. I used the Silver Metallic paper for the top of the purse. Hope you like it. The sentiment was computer generated.

Until next time!

Another Mini -

This is for my Grand-DIL who will be having our first great-grandchild in February/March! It uses the mini-cup and single box. I put a pocket on the back for a gift card and the cup has a pacifier in it! I used the Envelope Punch Board to make the box and the Bow Die to make the bow.

Oh and I know you guessed, it's a GIRL.
Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Mini-Single Cup

I wanted to try a single cup Mini and here it is. You can even slide a GIFT CARD in the box behind the cup. A mini-Cup Cake will fit in the cup (thanks, Fran Kennedy for the idea)!

I made the box using the Envelope Punch Board. I've had lots of requests for the directions so here are the measurements: Single box:
Using a 10 x 10 sheet of paper – punch and score at 2 ¼ on all four sides and turn the paper over and score and punch at 2 ¼ on all four sides and fold!

Am off to Sam's to see if they carry the cups. 

Until next time!

Halloween Mini

Boy that's thinkin' ahead. I ran across this paper and decided 'why not?' Oh I was going to order another 50 cups since I ordered 100 lids and only 50 cups - don't ask! The shipping is $14.+ on just that. Sooooo I am going to check Sam's. They have the 4 oz. cups! With shipping it works out to be about .36 cents per cup!

Hope everyone is staying WARM today! Glad we have a wood stove. Wrap up if you have to go out. It is 7 degrees here.

Until next time!

Slinky Valentine’s card inspired by Deb Valder over at Stampladee.com. These can be done with the square framelits too. Deb has a video on YouTube with details. What a great idea!
