Cut orange strips (good for scraps) 1" x 3 1/4", stamp and wrap Hershey Nuggets! YUM! Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Happy Thanksgiving

I made this THANKFUL fold out to use at Thanksgiving. I really love the new Stampin' Up Autumn Splendor stamp set. (Mini-catalog Page 12 - $20.95) The back drop was cute from 12x12 Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip 4" and scored at 4" inches then glued together to form the long strip. I cut the scalloped squares from the exclusive Stampin' Up Scallop Square Die (Pg. 199 - $21.95)in different colors of cardstock including More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Old Olive & Ruby Red. Don't you just love the great Stampin' Up fall colors? This would actually make a great gift too. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Little Ornament

Another PUNCH ornament! Just a quick post to show you - punch 8 or 10 ornament punches from any designer paper and fold in 1/2, glue together and VOILA' an ornament for your tree. Easy for kids to do. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Christmas Planner

I am so excited. I joined Ustamp with Dawn and friends and she has so many neat ideas (with instructions). By the way, Dawn Rapsas was the Stampin' Up #1 demo in the US this year! Here is the first project I completed and I love it. It is a Christmas planner and has pages for Wish Lists, Shopping Lists, Calendars for November and December planning. The Christmas Card list actually comes out for your convenience and you can add people, etc. I made the calendar double so you could lift it up and add notes. I made this from Christmas paper from the Christmas Scrappin' Kit and Merry Moments Designer paper. It fits right in your purse (5.5 x 4 1/4) Yes, it's card size. This planner would be ideal for gift giving and for OTHER occasions such as a birthday, Sweet sixteen party, or whenever! I have a craft show November 7 and one November 5 and I have been really busy making things for these. Today is our monthly Stamp A Stack. Everyone is trying to prepare for the Christmas card giving season! Staying inky! Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Another Challenge

This one is for Gretchen Barron's challenge. I just love her work and there are so many challenges out there! Check it out! This cute little card was made with the Cold & Cuddly Stamp Set in the Holiday Mini-Catalog. I just love those little characters especially floating on an iceberg! (Item #116523 - $27.95). The card is accented with the SU snowflake punch and the little guys touch of red heart. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Shaker Card

While at work the other day I spotted the plastic containers that computer chips come in and it is just PERFECT for a shaker card. So I made this card using Crazy for Cupcakes and put the little candies (for looks - not to eat) inside. I have not made a shaker card in over 5 or 6 years so this is basically a first. This proves another man's trash is another man's treasure! Keep your eye out for those 'throw-aways' they might be important! LOL I also used the circle scissors to cut the exact hole for the dome! Did it again... so no more posts for today. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Happy Halloween

If you haven't discovered Becky Roberts blog, check it out. She has some great tutorials and I found these cool Halloween boxes. The pumpkin can be used for Thanksgiving place cards w/ a treat or Halloween. I just love them. I used the Square Scallop Big Shot Die cut for the black Halloween box w/ the Black/White Designer Paper. The pumpkin treat box was made using the wide oval Stampin' Up punch. I used the Autumn Harvest Stamp set on both projects. Hope you like them as much as I did. Oops... I hit ENTER and not TAB so this was published without the pictures! Until next time!

Sepia Technique

This card was totally cased from the Oct./Nov. Technique Junkies newsletter. It is called the Sepia Technique and I don't think the card could have been improved. It is gorgeous and quite easy to make. If you haven't checked out the Technique Junkies newsletter, go to the site and you can order all the cd's from past newsletters as well as join the group. Enjoy! This card utilizes Mellow Moss, Kraft Cardstock & Soft Suede and the Autumn Harvest stamp set. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Thank You Notes

Late Night Stampers Boot Camp's assignment is to make Thank You cards to give to people you come in contact with, customers, waitress, bus driver etc. So I thought why not make them in a really cute container to carry with you. This was made using the Stampin' Up Flower Folds Die (Pg. 201 - 115970 - $42.95) and Cottage Wall Designer Paper (Pg. 160 - 115671 - $9.95) along with Rich Razzleberry Cardstock & Orchid Opulence. I just love this paper. They are simple and quick to make. Also makes a great gift! Until next post! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Totally Cased

This card was totally cased from PJ Browne! And as she stated 'the tradition goes on!' I used Really Rust for the background and the pumpkin is Pumpkin Pie made with the SU Wide Oval Punch. Green paper is Garden Green on a Basic Black Background. I used Autumn Harvest Stamp Set and the 'weeds' are from Pocket Silhouettes. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Twick or Tweet

Using the Cast-A-Spell Designer Paper, I made this Halloween card which was NOT even in my mind when I started! Everything just evolved and it turned out a lot different than it started out. The Cast-A-Spell DSP is now available on a download for My Digital Studio. I had to add the little punchie spider 'cause I got ink in the corner! Oops! There are seven new downloads available at Stampin' Up for My Digital Studio. Check it out! The stamp set is available in the Mini-Catalog (Pg. 10 - 116497 - Twick or Tweet - $18.95). Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Witchy Top Note

I made this cute little witch fashioned after all the Halloween cards that started last year on the internet! I used Almost Amethyst for the face and the Top Note Die for the base. She holds 3 little candy bars OR a cello bag full of treats! Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'
