Earthlings-001

She used the Pop Up Ball XL die, the Pennant XL die, the Bag w/Scallops XL die, and the Top Note die.

Too Cute!!!

Holiday JOY Wall Hanging - Kit in the Mail

Joybannerbarb ETA - My paypal button was on the fritz but it should be working now.

You asked for it and I always give you what you want. :-)   My BOO Wall Hanging seen in THIS POST was such a hit and I have been asked numerous times about a Holiday Wall Hanging it in the Mail.  Well here it is!!!

I am just tickled with how this turned out!!  I am offering this as a kit in the mail so you can make one too. 

You will receive all the materials to make this chipboard Holiday wall hanging including the Scallop Square chipboard pieces, Scallop card stock pieces, card stock layers, die cut letters and winter die cuts, the ribbons, safety pin and embellishments.  The instructions will be emailed to you and will include a "how to" on making this super quick bow.  You will need to provide the adhesive, stamps and ink.

I used the Serene Snowflakes from the Holiday Mini on the colored cardstock pieces with Versamark and that stamp set can be included in your kit price.

I will take orders for the kits throughout November and will be shipping them out weekly.

Wandering Words for the Holidays

I just love this set in the Holiday Mini Catalog, it is called Wandering Words and you will find it on page 16.  I created a "snowhill" by taking the Cutter Kit Cutting Blade and running it along a piece of copy paper in a wavy pattern.  I punched a 1 3/8 circle from a post it note and placed it in the top right corner with Dotto and then I used my "snowhill" to mask the bottom portion of my Top Note.  I sponged Brocade Blue all over the exposed portion of the Top Note.  I removed the masks and stamped my image in Night of Navy ink.  I added a Jumbo Pewter Eyelet with the Crop-A-Dile and tied a piece of Mistletoe Ribbon Originals with some Linen Thread.  My card layers are Night of Navy and Real Red.

Pinwheel cards!!

I just love these cards, they are so easy to make and could be done with any Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers for any holiday or occasion.  We did this card as a make & take at Sue's workshop this past weekend and it was a HUGE hit. 

Teenytinywishesautumnpinwheel

This one uses the Autumn Traditions DSP and the Autumn Days and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets.  If you don't already own Teeny Tiny Wishes 115370, you NEED it!!  It has greetings for any occasion and they all fit in our Word Window Punch.

Here is another card I created with the Teeny Tiny Wishes set using the Cast A Spell DSP and the Perfect Details Texturz Plate for the Big Shot.

I have a video showing you how easy it is to make Pinwheel Cards in my VIDEO GALLERY.

Mommy & Me Build-A-Bear Class

Mommynme

We had so much fun last Saturday at my Mommy & Me Buld-A-Bear class that I will be offering it again!!

The girls made these projects and they did a great job and had a blast!  The Santa on the tin was done with our NEW Build-A-Bear Big Shot dies.  We used the Stampin' Up! Bear and the Stampin' Up! Beary Merry dies.  The bear was run through the machine on a magnet sheet.  The inside of the tin has pull out pages that can be used as a scrapbook or a journal.

Babtinin

Pawsitivelybookmark They also made a bookmark and this was the biggest hit with them.  My daughter was so excited that she made a few more after class, a little perk of being the daughter of the teacher. {wink}

We used the Two Tags Bigz die for the bookmark shape and the Melon Mambo Prints DSP.  The little bear is an Embosslit called Pawsitively and he has Rich Razzleberry eyes and ears.  His little heart is a piece on the embosslit.

An initial done with our FABULOUS Timeless Type Medium Sizzlit set finishes it off.  Here are the rest of the bookmarks I have made and remember you can get FREE bookmark kits this month by placing an online order of $45 or more.

Babgroupcc

Our final project was this greeting card.  We used the Beary Best Friends along with Beary Nice Wishes.  The DSP is Tea Party.  I had the girls use our Watercolor Pencils with Blender Pens.  I don't use these pencils enough.  They blend so smoothly and are really easy to use.  If you don't have our Watercolor Pencils, you NEED them. :-)

Beartbestfriendsmommyme

I will be offering this class again so stay tuned for my 2010 class schedule.

Christmas and the Fancy Favor Box

Fancyfavorshimmer
 
Here are a couple of projects I made and they are based on projects I have seen online.   They both use the Fancy Favor box die and the Big Shot.  The card edge and the edge of my Christmas Cocoa DSP were run through in the center panel of the die to mimic the top edge of the box. 
  
Fancyfavorshimmer3x3

Here is a close up of the card.  I added the Champagne Shimmer Paint to the bottom edge of the card.  I also used the Shimmer Paint on the greeting.  I first inked it up in Soft Suede ink and then used a sponge dauber to add the shimmer paint to it before I stamped in on the card stock.

Close up of the stamped image on the box.  It is hard to capture the awesome shimmer of this paint on film.
