Be Mine, Valentine

Time to switch gears from Christmas to Valentine's Day.  I made this card for a swap I am doing with some fellow demonstrators and it features the stamp, Candy Conversations, from the Occasions Mini Catalog that starts January 4. 

It's a single stamp that I stamped several times down the cardstock.  I masked off the words as I went and then for the bottom row, I masked off the hearts.  I popped up the Be Mine heart in the center with a dimensional.

Telescoping Snowman

I saw a fantastic telescoping snowman at convention this summer. But when I went to make one, I didn't have the right sized circle punches and dies.  So when my finished snowman ended up a little too small, I decided to put it on a card.  I loved the way it turned out.

Dryer Sheet Season's Greetings

Talk about the ultimate recycling project.  For this technique, cover your cardstock completely with adhesive.  I don't like using spray adhesive, so I just covered it with rows and rows of Snail and it worked great.  Press a used dryer sheet onto the adhesive, trim the extra, and then cover the dryer sheet with glitter.  Quick but impressive.

Stitched Felt Winter Wishes Gift Tags

I modeled these after some samples we saw at the Louisville Stampin' Up! Regional earlier in the fall.  I am afraid these might not make it onto any of my packages this year because they are just too cute!  The stamp club ladies each got to make one last week.  I have my favorite, but it was fun to see which stitched felt pieces we ran out of first.

Gift Tags 2011

Need some gift tag ideas?  We made this earlier this month at the one and only stamp-a-stack that you don't actually stamp a stack of cards.  We stamped 30 gift tags instead!

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Aren't these fantastic?  I knew we were going to make these in stamp club for months.  A fellow demo shared this idea in the spring - thanks Laura.  And she also shared her source if you want measurements.

Cased Birthday Card

My upline, Meg, sent me a pretty card a couple of months ago, and I did some tweaking so that I could do it with the supplies I had on hand.  I used her same stamp set (My Friend), and the Perfect Pennants die.  I thought it was a great design for birthday, thinking of you etc.

Holly Jolly Christmas

Here's a new way to use an embossing folder.  Emboss the top and then the bottom of your cardstock, but not the entire piece.  This Snow Burst embossing folder from the Holiday Mini is a consistent pattern and looks nice broken up with the solid band - a perfect place for the Jolly Holiday stamp.

Here's a fun little treat I took home at Thanksgiving time.  It was a little challenging to keep Hershey bars in the house until I got them put together though!  I first saw this idea on Becky Robert's blog, and when I saw the Stackers marshmallows in my grocery store, I had to make some.

Double Z Fold Christmas

With a few score lines using the Simply Scored tool, this is a pretty quick but fancy looking card.  But the part I really like is the belly band.  Did you notice the Dazzling Details on the berries is red?  Mix reinker into the Dazzling Details and make your own custom color.

Christmas Shaker

I love using the treat cups with the mica flakes from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  And this is a card version of a project I saw at convention this summer.  They actually put the treat cup on a stick and made a sucker, but we went ahead and made this into a card for stamp club.  The outline came from the Perfect Pennant die, and it's just the perfect size.  And the tree was made with the Pennant Parade stamp set and trimmed down to make the tiny tree.  A little Dazzling Details on the snow and it's ready to go!
