Directions for Chocolate Pouch: I started with a 4x8 piece of Designer Series Paper, folded it in half and placed in on my Big Shot Machine with the second to largest die in the Labels Collection Framelits that are also on the retiring list for 50% off!!

Make sure that your fold line is inside the die and run it through.

Labelscandybigshot

Open it up and lay this piece on your Simply Scored Tool with the fold line in one of the grooves and score 1/4" on both sides of the fold line. Add a piece of Sticky Strip to the back of the chocolate and place it on one half of the pouch.

LabelscandysideLabelscandyin

Fold the score lines in the shape of a "W" and hold together at the top.  Punch two holes and run a strip of ribbon through to tie it closed.  Easy Peasy!!

 


Work of Art Christmas Tree

One of the cards from my last Christmas Card Class this year.  We used the Work of Art stamp set to create this simple Christmas Tree.

Work_of_art_tree

I inked the long brushstroke stamp in Mossy Meadow and stamped it at the bottom of the card.  Without reinking, I stamped it again, just slightly above and to the left.  I repeated the process all the way to the top to create the tree.

We added a die cut bow out of the Red Glimmer Paper using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits and some small circles punched with the 1/4" Circle Punch.  The greeting is from the Christmas Bliss Photopolymer stamp set.

Have you seen the Choose Happiness set?

The Choose Happiness stamp set can be found on page 118 of the Annual Catalog.  I hadn't even noticed it until I saw Shelli Gardner, the CEO of Stampin' Up! demonstrate with it at the recent Inspire, Create and Share Event.  You know how it goes, now I NEED it!!

Choose_happiness

Here are some of her samples:

Shellijsplitpennant
I love how she emobssed the Blackberry Bliss pennant with clear embossing powder.  She also cut it in half and flipped the pieces to create this fun embellishment.

Shelliburgerbox
Crisp Cantaloupe Hamburger Box with a Filter Paper Spiral Flower.  The tip on the filter paper, is to cut three at once, lay them out and spritz them randomly, making sure they aren't the same and leaving a bit of white space.  Then roll them up together to create the flower.  You can view a videos by Stampin Up!

Click to view - Hamburger Box 
Click to view - Spiral Flower 

Shellifiligree
Super simple notecard using one of the border stamps in the set and an Elegant Butterfly cut out of Vellum.

Shellijournal
She embossed the front back covers of our Kraft Grid Journals with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  To stamp on the large polka dots, you punch a 3/4" hole out of a scrap, place it over the polka dot and stamp.....brilliant!!

Shellibird
Cute tag with the bird in a nest.  She made the nest out of our burlap ribbon, pull the strands out and twist them into a nest shape, secure with glue dots.

Here are some of the products Shelli used on these projects.

IncolorI have a few spaces open in my latest round of the In Color Stitched Satin Ribbon Share.  Get 2 yards of each of the 5 colors for $11.25, please add $./50 if you need it shipped to you.

Email me and let me know how many shares you would like.


Work of Art

I used almost every stamp in the Work of Art set and the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge on this card. It is so easy to mix the images and you could make the same card but use a different color combination. The Color Coach is very helpful for choosing color combinations.

Work_of_art_club

I stamped the image in the corner and added the Gold Baker's Twine along the edge.  Very easy but striking card.

Little Letters @SoSocial

Stampin' Up! had some fun with the new Little Letters Thinlits and the @SoSocial stamp set.

Little_letters

The new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper was cut into strips and adhered across the Lost Lagoon layer. After cutting the star framelit out of Vellum Card Stock, it was run through the Big Shot again with the "H" and the "I" from the Little Letters Framelits. The #ijustloveyou image was stamped in Tangelo Twist onto Melon Mambo Card Stock and cut out with one of the banners included in the Bitty Banners Framelits Set.

Little_letters1The small Tangelo Twist heart is a leftover when you use our NEW Hearts Border Punch and it was attached with one of the petite paper clips included in the Basics Hodgepodge Clip set.

Moonlight Tag Pouch

Created a cute little pouch out of a piece of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. This pouch holds my stamped tag.

Something_to_say_pouchin

I used the colors in the paper, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey and added a card base in Perfect Plum.  The Hello Honey layer was run through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Here is a pattern for cutting and scoring the pouch.  I started with one sheet of the Moonlight DSP, they measure 4-1/2 x 6-1/2.  I scored it at 1, 1-1/2, 2, 4, 4-1/2,and 5 with the long side at the top of my Simply Scored Tool and 1/2 with the short side at the top.

Pouch_pattern

Fold the pouch on the score lines to create mountains and valleys as shown in the picture.  Adhere together with our new Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack!

I am getting alot of use out of the NEW Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. It has two color combinations, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Sahara Sand and Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Basic Gray.

Bravo_hardwood_banner

I took three patterns and used the Banners Framelits to create pennants.  I glued the pennants together and wrapped them with some of our Gold Baker's Twine.  The background was stamped with the Hardwood Background stamp and the greeting is from one of the New Photopolymer Stamp Sets in the new Catalog called Bravo.
