Baby card

My mom's friend had twins recently and I made this card for my mom to give to her. She had a boy and a girl, so this is what I came up with. The "It's a boy" and "It's a girl" stamps are not SU!.

Halloween treats


I love giving candy to coworkers but instead of just giving out the candy in the wrappers, I wanted to jazz it up a bit. Below are boxes with mini chocolate bars or candy and Reese mini peanut butter cups decorated as witches hats. The idea for the hats came from here.

The paper used is not SU! I bought a package of 8 Halloween paper placemats with a fun design on them and used them for the boxes and hats.


I used the Circle Scissors Plus to make the 4" circles that are then cut in half and wrapped around the reese pb cup, then adhered using a hot glue gun (much faster than using the Tombow adhesive, though that stuff works great too). I then cut out the hat brims using the scallop circle punch and adhered to the bottom of the pb cup with a dab of hot glue.

The boxes are made using the Stampin' Up! Pillow Box Bigz die and my Big Shot die cutting machine. I adhered the sides using the Tombow adhesive, but next time I will use my hot glue gun - faster. I then tied non-SU! ribbon around the boxes.

Oh how I love Halloween!!!

Anniversary card

It is my boyfriend's aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary, and I wanted to make an elegant card to send to them in Vancouver.

I have not yet touched the Sahara Sand cs so I thought I'd give it a shot. It is hard to see in the picture, but I used the En Francais background stamp in versamark on the Sahara Sand card and on the Very Vanilla, but it is so faint, you can't see it.


Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla
Ink: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes ("Happy Anniversary" inside), Baroque Motifs, En Francais background
Punches: Modern Label, Boho Blossoms
Other: Beachfront Ribbon Originals in Sahara Sand (retired), Stampin' Dimensionals, sponge dauber
Note: Brown half-back pearl is not SU!

Halloween decor

Well, it's October 9th and we had our first snowfall today. It looked quite pretty through my office window this afternoon, but was horribly cold walking to my car after work. I hope it is short-lived and stays away until after Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, this weekend I intend to bust out the decorations. So in that spirit, I made a "decoration" to take to work. I just have to frame it. UPDATE: I framed it on Monday. The first picture below is with it framed. I sort of case'd it from the October Stampin' Success magazine that SU demos get monthly.

It is an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock with six 2 1/2" squares individually decorated on it.


Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Only Orange, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Many Marvelous Markers in Only Orange, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive
Stamps: Eat, Drink & Be Scary, Holiday Best hostess set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Baroque Motifs
Punches: Scallop Border, Eyelet Border, Modern Label, Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/2" circle cutter
Other: Chills & Thrills rub ons (retired), Walk in the Park DSP (retired), Urban Oasis DSP (retired), Stampin' Dimensionals, sponge dauber
Note: Ribbons, black textured paper (top right) and witch die cut are not SU

Baby card

I had a very productive day today - made 5 cards!! This is one of them. I wanted soooo badly to try out my new Forest Friends but haven't had a chance till now.

So I was also trying out sponge daubing backgrounds for the first time. Could be better... but not bad for a first try, I think. I also shaded in his little face and body with a blender pen and the chocolate chip pastel.


Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery. Blue ink is not SU. Many Marvelous Markers - Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink

A very pink birthday!

It was a coworker's 50th birthday this week and she LOVES pink. So this is the card I made for her along with some Beautiful Butterflies magnets. (Our office walls and doors are metal, so we love magnets!)

Card:
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Regal Rose
Ink: Basic Grey, Versamark, Many Marvelour Markers: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Basic Black, Green Galore
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/2" circle is not SU
Stamps: Cool Cat (retired), Birthdays Count (inside card)
Other: Walk in the Park DSP, Big Shot, Top Note die, Pink ribbon and rhinestones are not SU.

Butterfly magnets:
Walk in the Park DSP
Big Shot
Beautiful Butterflies die
Adhesive rhinestones are not SU
Adhesive magnet sheet

Magnet directions: Adhesive magnet sheets come 6" x 9". Pre-cut a piece of the pink DSP to that size and adhered it to the adhesive side of the magnet sheet. The magnet sheet is fairly thin and can be folded over on the one end to make the larger butterflies that are only half on the die. Sandwich die and magnet sheet between the two cutting pads. Run through the Big Shot. You will end up with 4 butterfly magnets with the DSP on one side. The two that were folded in the middle will have fold marks. I covered them up using adhesive rhinestones.

Enjoy!

So friends of ours just bought their first home and I wanted to make a card for them... Thanks to Phil for the inspiration - he wanted me to make them a card in the shape of a house (fitting!) so here it is!The roof is made layering pieces of Chocolate Chip cs punched using the scallop edge punch. For the "on your new home" stamped greeting, I repurposed a couple of the stamps from "Sweet Little Sentiments" in order to spell out what I wanted it to say, and of course, used my stamp-a-ma-jig!!! I am very happy with how it turned out!

Happy Birthday!

It was my boyfriend's sister's birthday this month, and this is the card I made for her... I used the retiring Doodle This stamp set - which I absolutely LOVE!! Can't believe it's retiring, but that's not going to stop me from using it! :)

So it's been a while....

But here I am! I have been having some incredibly frustrating computer problems of late... but hopefully I can post stuff more often now.

So these are 3 Father's Day cards I had to make this last week... This first one is for my Grandfather. He's a rooster in the Chinese calendar... and he had a farm for many years - he just loved this card!!! I was so happy that he liked the card so much! :)

Ink: VersaMark

And this is the one for my grandfather from my mom. If you're wondering why it's pink and burgundy, it's because those are my grandfather's favorite colors!!! :)

I stamped the main stamped image in bravo burgundy classic ink, then using my stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped the exact image overtop in versamark so that I could clear emboss it... turned out not bad!
