*Turn the cardstock, line up with the score line punch and score again, continue to do that on all remaining sides.
*Cut off two smaller sides and fold the remaining two flaps in, this will form the vest.
*Using the vest trace both flaps onto Urban Underground DSP, cut them out and attach to the vest flaps. Trim any excess.
*Fold flaps in and adhere them together, be careful to only apply adhesive on the pointed part of one flap so there is no excess glue.
Shirt
*Snip Whisper White about 3/4“ from top on both sides about 1” in
*Fold flaps at a slight angle to create collar, secure with Dimensionals
*Slide Whisper White inside of vest and mark with a pencil at the “v”. Remove it and stamp your greeting.

*Crop one of the bow middle strips from Basic Black, attach it to the bow end, trim the excess and then adhere it to the front of the vest.
*Add the nut head embellishment to the vest as a button.
This card is a bit large to fit in a standard A2 envelope but you can create one from a sheet of the DSP. Use the envelope punch board and the measurements for an A6 card – 4 1/2” x 6 1/2”

Balloon Pop Up Wiper Card, how much fun does this sound?  It is tons of fun and super easy too.  Check out my video to see how much fun this interactive card is.  It is also simple to create a Wiper Card so that makes it even more fun!  AND when you add pop up balloons in Glimmer Paper, it's even better!!  Here's the first Wiper Card I made.  I made it for a swap and the gals loved it.
This first picture is of it closed.  It's cute but nothing special.....scroll down to the next photo.

Here it is with the balloons coming out of the top.  The card acts like windshield wipers.  up, down, up, down, up, down, they are so so cool!!!

Here's a closeup of the balloons, I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and cropped balloons from Watermelon Wonder (Heads up, this is one of the colors that will be retiring at the end of May with the current catalog.), Pool Party and coordinating bows, one out of Peekaboo Peach.
Wiper_balloons

The polka dot papers are from the 2015-2017 and 2016-2018 In Color Paper Stacks and check out the little strip of Pool Party in the center section.  I stamped it a few times with the Happy Birthday stamp in the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

Bell Punch Treat Pouch!

Occasons_2017_shareNow taking reservations for my 2017 Occasions Catalog Product Shares.  If you reserve and pay for your I Want it All Share by December 31st, I will include the Early Bird Bonus Sale-a-bration Papers.  More information....
___________________________________________________________

Here is a last minute treat that you can whip up in minutes.  I used the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper and the Bell Punch along with our 3 x 6 Gusseted Cello Bags.

Bell_bags

I cut two pieces of the Designer Series Paper to 2-7/8 x 6-1/2 and scored each piece at 2" from the bottom.

Fold up on the score line and insert the punch as far as it will go and punch.  This will also punch on the 2" section but you can hide it.  Glue the two 2" sections together making sure to put the flap with the partial bell punch out to the inside.  Cut a 2 x 2-7/8 piece of coordinating cardstock and glue it where the two section overlap covering the partial punch out.

Take a scrap of coordinating cardstock and crop the bell punch from it.  Crop this with the 2" Circle Punch and put it over the bell punched from the DSP.  Cut a 2 x 2 piece of Window Sheet and place it over the hole on the opposite side of the DSP to create a window.

Tie a bow from coordinating ribbon, in my case, I used the 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon in Emerald Envy, and attach it to the top of the bell.

Open the bag and push the bottom of the DSP strip into the bag creating the pouch.  Fill with treats and staple closed.  Create a topper from a 1 x 2-7/8 strip of coordinating cardstock that is folded in half to go over the top of the pouch.  I used some clothespins that I covered with DSP to attach the topper to the pouch.  I finished it off by adding some of the Baker's Twine in Cherry Cobbler and Gold.

Santa's Sleigh - Gift for my Mom

My mom is getting up there in age and she doesn't do much decorating for the holidays any;more.  It is just too difficult for her to drag out allthe holiday decorations and then put them away.  I wanted her to have something to look at so I made her this framed piece of art.

Santas_sleigh_frame

I copied it from page 24 of the Holiday Catalog.  I purchased my frame at Walmart and just followed the picture.  I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and layered "hills" I hand trimmed using Shimmery White as it is a bit less white.  I added glitter to the hills with my Fine Tip Glue Pen and our Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Santas_sleigh_frame_trees

I cut the trees out of Garden Green and Wild Wasabi and added some Mica Flakes to them. 

The reindeer are cut from Kraft Cardstock and I cut them again from Basic Black so I could trim off their hooves and add them to the Kraft reindeer. I aded bows of gold baker's twine and a mini jingle bell.

Santas_sleigh_frame_reindeer

The sleigh is cut from Gold Foil Sheets and the bow from the Silver Foil Sheets.

Santas_sleigh_frame_sleigh

I gave it to her last month when we drove home for Thanksgiving and she loved it.  Made me happy. :-)

Holiday Treats for Teachers

Here are some of the holiday treats I am making for my kids teachers.  They are getting older and have more than one teacher so I no longer make one big gift.

These went together quickly.  I used the Ghirardelli Minis Peppermint Bark candies.  I cut a 1-3/4 x 4-1/4 strip of Real Red cardstock and added the candies to the strip with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I slid it into one of our 2 x 8 cello bags.  I wrapped the 2 x 4 belly band around the treat and added a fussy cut gingerbread house or a reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.

Birthday Gift in a Bag

A Birthday Gift in a bag?  A cello bag that is.  Here's a quick gift packaging option for a bottle of wine, champagne, sparkling cider, any beverage that comes in a bottle.  Use our NEW 6 x 17 Gusseted Cello Bags.  These bags are perfect for bottles, homemade treats (they are food safe) or gifts.  Just pop the treat or gift into one of these shiny cellophane bags, tie it closed with some of our fabulous ribbon and add a stamped tag. There are 25 bags in the package and they are gusseted so they expand to hold more.

Big_cello_wine1

I slipped my bottle of wine into the bag and tied it closed with some coordinating ribbon, the 1/8" Stitched Melon Mambo was the perfect match to the label. :-)  I grabbed the large "happy birthday" image from the Watercolor Words set and inked it in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I cropped the greeting with the #6 oval and added a #6 scalloped oval in Melon Mambo behind it. 

Layering_framelits_ovals1I have a file for you noting the die sizes of all three sets of our Layering Framelits-----> Download Layering_framelits_sizes

Big_cello_wine

I punched a hole in the tag, threaded the ribbon through it and tied it in a bow.  The last bit of fun was a Melon Mambo Enamel Heart.

Small, Removable Shaker Easel to Sit on Your Desk!!

This card is so cool!!  I received it from my good friend Connie and I just love it!!

Endless_birthday_wishes_easel

It looks like a regular card but there is a surprise on it.

Endless_birthday_wishes_easel_out_slitIt has a small removable shaker easel that you can set on your desk, or anywhere so you can appreciate it.  So nifty!!!  The easel measures approx 3 x 3 and is adorable.

Endless_birthday_wishes_easel1_out

You must cut a slit in the main card base so the the easel will have a place to hang.  The main card base is cut to 4-1/4 x 11 and you will place it in the trimmer with the long edge at the top.  Slide the left edge over to the 2-1/4" mark and start your cut at the 1-3/8" mark and cut down to the 2-3/4" mark. 

To create the easel piece, you need the Layering Squares Framelits.  You need the two largest scalloped squares and the two largest squares.  The stamping is done on Whisper White and then the other pieces are added to create a shaker card.  

Layering_framelitsDownload Layering_framelits_sizes

You can watch my video on making a Shaker Card on my YouTube Channel.

The back of this piece has a strip of Pink Pirouette cardstock scored and folded to create the stand.

Start with a piece of card stock that measures 1 x 8 and score it at 1", 3-1/2", 4-1/2", and 5-1/2".  Fold it up and adhere it to the back of the easel.

Tag a Bag Gift Card Holders

Among_branches_gc_holder

This was one of our club projects back in November.  We used the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags and created these amazing gift card holders.

How to:
*Place the bottom of the bag along the 3" line of your Stampin' Trimmer and score.
*Fold this up to create the double pouch, one for the greeting and one for the gift card.
*Cut a piece of Whisper White and one of the patterns from the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to 4-3/4 x 2-1/2, layer them together and attach to the front of the folded up bag where shown.
*Stamp the "making spirits bright" greeting from the Among the Branches set and crop with the 2" Circle Punch.  Add this to a 2-3/8 Scallop Circle cropped from our Silver Foil Sheets. 
*Lay a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the printed vellum and add a strip of the White Glitter Ribbon, then tie a piece of Silver Cording Trim around the whole thing to keep it closed.

Among_branches_gc_holder_bluein

Cut a piece of Whisper White to 4-5/8 x 4, use the Curvy Corner Trio Punch on two of the corners on one of the long sides.  Stamp your greetings in Night of Navy.  I chose the "Merry Christmas" greeting from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and the other two fun greetings from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set designed specifically with gift card giving in mind.

Among_branches_gc_holder_blue
Here are the other two I made using the other two patterns in the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  The Foil Vellum, the Real Red & Garden Green 1/8" Striped Ribbon and the Gold & White 3/8" Glitter Ribbon are part of the Year End Sale and are discounted!!

Ice Cream Cone Chapstick Holders

My daughter is a Freshman this year and has chosen to swim with our High School Swim Team.  They have a meet today and I wanted to give each of the girls a little something so show our school spirit.

Sprinkles_of_life_ladybroncs

I got the idea from my friend Becky.  I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and our school colors and packaged them individually with each girls name.  I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Swim Fast Lady Broncs!!!

Sprinkles_of_life_ladybroncs1 Sprinkles_of_life_cone_threeI used the Dots and Stripes Mask to add the polka dots to my tissue paper.  Lay the  mask over the tissue paper and use a Sponge Dauber to add the Soft Sky Ink to the dots.
Sprinkles_of_life_cone_side
I prepared the ice cream cones by stamping and punching/cutting the cones and ice cream. The cherry on top is one of the punch outs from the Cupcake Builder Punch and I added a tiny rhinestone for a bit of bling.

Sprinkles_of_life_cone_box*Cut your cardstock to 2-3/4 x 2-5/8
*With the 2-3/4 side at the top of the Simply Scored Tool, score at 5/8, 1-1/4, 1-7/8 and 2-1/2
*Turn and put the 2-5/8 side at the top and score at 5/8
*Cut and fold as shown, glue the flaps.

My Hawaii Trip Swap

We always swap when we go on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trips and this year was no different.  I had to make 25 and then I received 25 different cards in return.

Here is mine.  It is a Center Cut Easel Card, I posted a VIDEO for you, VIEW IT HERE.

I used the Celebrate Today Bundle, this bundle includes the Celebrate Today Photopolymer stamp set along with the Balloon Framelits and you get a 15% discount when you order bundles!!

  Celebrate Today Photopolymer Bundle [138869]

I chose some bright fun colors to pop on the Basic Black.  The balloon basket was stamped in Bermuda Bay and punched out with the Note Tag Punch.  The die cut balloon was added and then the birthday banner.

I ran the Basic Black through the Big Shot Machine with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and added some small stars cropped from scraps with the Confetti Stars Border Punch.

These cards fold flat for mailing but pack a WOW for the recipient.

At my most recent Technique Geeks Class, we learned how to make a Double Gate Fold Card. These are fun and use a half sheet of 12x12 Card stock.

We used one of the retiring Window Frames from the Window Frames Collection Framelits (also on the retiring list).  We used the Color Coach (also on the retiring list) to determine the colors we would use for our projects.  Each person chose a color of Designer Series from one of the Designer Series Paper Stacks we have and then we used the Color Coach to determine the other two colors.  It was so much fun!!

We used the retiring stamp set called Sweet Stuff to decorate the inside of the card and the same colors of Stampn' Write Markers to color in the sweet ballerina.
