From Hot Chocolate to Wine!

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday I was drinking hot chocolate, but today I think I am more in the mood for some wine! I love the stamp set in the holiday mini on pg 42 called Half Full. It was designed by one of my friends Linda Bauwin . She got to help create a stamp set when she earned a million dollars in sales for Stamping Up!  

I just love it! My friend Michelle made this card and I just loved it.. I added a little sparkle to it by using the fine tip glue pen on the wine glass and bottle. 

 

I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder for the background. The colors are Fresh Fig and Smokey Slate. I colored them using the ink pad lids and the aquapainter. 

In this one you can see the shiny effect from using the fine tip glue pen. The ribbon is the black shimmery ribbon from the big catalog.

I’m in the Mood for some Hot Chocolate!

Hey everyone!

I don’t know about you, but I love hot chocolate! I just wish it didn’t have any calories so I could drink it all day! When I make it, I use milk and then put in some creamer flavoring like Bailey’s Irish Cream or French Vanilla. Then I top it off with a big pile of whipped cream and Hershey’s syrup! I know what you are thinking….it sounds so good, you want one too! LOL! 

 

So, I decided to make a hot chocolate card. I used the  Be Merry designer paper for the cup and the side piece. I used the snowflake think from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. The words are from the Snowflake Sentiments in the Stamping Up  Holiday mini catalog.

 

I topped off the whipped cream with some Wink of Stella to give them a little sparkle!

Season Like Christmas is So Gorgeous!

Hey everyone!

So many great stamp sets and so little time. I love making Christmas cards but I have so many great ideas and not enough time to make them all!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Stampin Up Holiday Mini. It is called Season Like Christmas, and you can find it on pg 9.

It is so easy to make a beautiful card. It is a 2 step stamp set, but it is almost impossible to mess up. I used pool party, tranquil tide and soft suede for the trees. I love the pool party and tranquil tide combo.  

The background is the Merry Music specialty paper on pg 13. I sponged that with crumb cake. 

 

For the tag, I used the Merry Label punch and punched out the front and back piece using the same punch. I then cut the green piece in half and glued it to the back so that it looks like a larger layer. 

 

I love this gold edged ribbon that can be found in the big Stamping Up catalog on pg 199.

Painted Harvest Framed Art

Hey Everyone,
I recently held a Painted Harvest framed art class and here is the project that we made.

I saw a card on Pinterest using these colors and absolutely loved it. They are wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant and soft suede. I also used a little bit of crumb cake and sahara sand for background stamps and sponging.

I used several stamp sets, including painted harvest, dragonfly dreams, timeless textures, ribbon of courage, butterfly basics, sheet music and touches of texture. 

I bought the 8×10 shadowbox frames from Michaels online. There are 3 in a pack for $30 but they go on sale for half price all the time, so they come out to about $5 a piece. The frame was included in the class.

Here are the measurements

crumb cake  8×10

wisteria wonder 6 1/2 x 8 1/2

soft suede 4×6

vanilla 3 1/2 x 5 1/2

small pieces:

soft suede 2×3 (3 of these)

vanilla 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 (3 of these)

I also used scraps of vanilla for the cutout pieces.

 

I sponged all of the smaller pieces with crumb cake and wisteria wonder.

Carols of Christmas Z-Fold Card

Hey everyone!

I finally had a chance to make another video. I wasn’t really happy with this one at the beginning, but once I get started it goes pretty well. I just need a little more practice.

But you will love the card I made in the video! It is so pretty.

More details below the video.

If you are viewing this in an email, please click on the link to see the video.

 

Here is the front of the card. I love this color combo together. It is pool party and tranquil tide. I used the Delightful Daisy and Fresh Florals designer papers on this card too. 

Here are the measurements….

Pool Party 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2

Delightful daisy piece 2 1/2 x 4

Tranquil Tide 2 3/4 x 2 3/4

White 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, cut out using the stitched framelits

Here is a view from above the card….see how it looks like a Z?

Star of Light Gift Card Holder

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to make this super easy gift card holder using a regular envelope! I made this about 2 weeks ago but it has taken me this long to make the video and post these pictures. I never imagined that making a video and uploading it would be so time consuming. I wish I had magical powers to just blink my eyes and make it happen by itself. If only I had about 10 more hours in a day to get everything done on my To-do list. I am sure many of you can relate to that, especially at this time of year.

Watch the video to see step by step instructions. I used the Star of Light framelit and the Fancy Frost designer paper for the front. The snowflake inside and the Surprise are from the Tin of Tags stamp set. You can find all of these products in the Stampin Up Holiday mini.  If you would like to purchase the products shown here or any other Stampin Up products, just click on the shopping cart to the right.
