Inlaid Embossing for Valentine's Day

FilledwithloveinlaidThis is my last Inlaid Embossing Card.........for now...LOL  I used the Small Heart Punch 117193 and the Heart to Heart Punch 119881 to punch the hearts out of Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink card stock.  I glued the hearts to the 2 1/2" Circle punchout and then ran it through the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 119976. 

The Designer Series Paper is from the Love Patterns pack available through January 24th either alone or in the Filled with Love Bundle.

The greeting is from the Grateful Greetings 116511 stamp set and I added some Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon and the Whisper White 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

Chicks & Chocolate I {love} Love Valentine Box

Fancyfavorboxchickssingle Here is one of the projects from my recent Chicks & Chocolate Class.  We used the Fancy Favor Box with Crumb Cake card stock.  We inked the I {love} Love Jumbo Wheel with the Riding Hood Red pad.  I used the Wheel Guide so we could wheel across the box in a straight line. 

We used the 1 1/4" Riding Hood Red Ribbon off the Clearance Rack and attached it to one of the Mini Clothes Pins included in the Candy Countdown Calendar Kit.  The stamped heart is from the Filled with Love stamp set that is currently part of the Filled with Love Bundle.  We layered that onto the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit

The little hearts across the bottom were punched out of Crumb Cake card stock and we used Sponge Daubers to add ink around the edges.   

Fancyfavorboxchicksclip Here is a close-up of the back of the clip accent, it really makes the box, don't cha think!!!  The gals loved this little accent.  We also had some chocolates and caramels made by me and they were also a big hit.  Who doesn't love chocolate when they stamp!!!  I am looking forward to my next Chicks & Chocolate event.

Teacher Gift and the Box #2 Bigz XL die

TagstilchristamsclelandMy daughter's teacher is a male this year so we got some movie passes for him and his family.  We put the passes in the box that I cut with my Big Shot out of Crumb Cake card stock and the Box #2 Bigz XL die.  I wrapped the box with some Riding Hood Red/Very Vanilla 1 1/4" Ribbon I got off the Clearance Rack for only $1.99!

The card base is also Crumb Cake and I cut Top Notes out of Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.  I stamped the flourish image from Baroque Motifs in Old Olive and the ornament from Tags til Christmas in Early Espresso.  The greeting from Sincere Salutations was stamped in Riding Hood Red.  I also added a Red Glimmer Brad to the center of the ornament for a tiny bit of bling on his card.  The card base was wrapped with the same Riding Hood Red/Very Vanilla Ribbon.

Thanks for looking!!

Deck the Halls Designer Fabric Coaster!!

Treecoaster

This is one of the projects you can make with the instructions included in the package of Deck the Halls Designer Fabric #121716 in the Holiday Mini Catalog

It was really easy, I just followed the instructions and had one done in about 1/2 hour.  Now that I know how to do it, I can make a whole set!!  I think I will be using the Big Shot Fabric Adhesive Roll 122194 on my future coasters as the stitching with the Linen Thread took the most time.  I am sure I can iron the adhesive onto the fabric alot quicker. :-)

Candy Cane Christmas Valentine

Heratsbracketsdoorhanger Is it too early for Valentine's Day?  I don't think so because the Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper isn't just for Christmas and alot of you must have known that because it sold out!!!   When I saw the stripes in this pattern, I knew I would be using it for Valentine's Day projects on my blog and in my classes.  Click HERE to see more Valentine's Day projects.

I love having seasonal things hanging from the handles of my cupboards, it just gets my festive juices flowing!!

This was a pretty easy project to put together if you have a Big Shot.  If you don't have one, have Santa put one under your tree this year.  Better yet, have Santa contact me and I will get him a gift certificate and you can get whatever you want. {wink}

I cut a piece from our Long Board Sheets and covered it with a piece of the striped DSP using our Anywhere Glue Sticks and ran it throught the Big Shot with the Hearts & Brackets Bigz Die. I cut a circle out of Real Red and ran it through again with our Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the larger scallop on the die.

The ribbon was threaded through one of the Big Designer Buttons and tied in a bow.  I got my Crop-a-dile out to make the hanger hole so I could tie ribbon through it.

Inlaid Embossing - Poinsettias

This is the last Christmas Inlaid Embossing project I have for you (read as, I do have more but they are not Christmas...LOL).  This was the favorite of many of my stampers.  I used the Top Note Die and the Petals A Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder along with the 5-Petal Flower Punch

Inlaidpoinsettias The Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper ties all the colors together.  The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is punched out with the Word Window Punch.  I used ALOT of Old Olive brads but they just really make the card so I didn't have a choice. :-)

Stamped Tealights - Quick Gift Idea

Tealightsetholidaypizzaboxopen Aren't these the cutest things you have ever seen!!!  We made them at a recent Holiday Gifts Stamp Camp.   This set is in a Pizza Box.

I used the Season of Joy #110384 and Jolly Bingo Bits W#120857, C#121187 sets to stamp my images on white tissue paper and then punch them out with the 1 3/8 Circle Punch.  Since tissue paper is too thin to be punched out alone, I sandwiched the tissue paper between two pieces of White Vellum Paper #101839.  The vellum makes it easy to see the stamped image so you can center it perfectly.  

Poke a hole in the middle of your image with the Paper-Piercing Tool #116631 and Mat and place it over the wick of a tealight.  Use your Tealightsetholidaypizzabox Heat Tool #100005 to melt it into the wax and you are done!!!

I created the tag by stamping the "noel" image from the Gifted set W#116982, C#120480 twice, once in Baja Breeze and once in Real Red and then punching them out with the 1 3/8 Circle Punch #119860 and the 1 3/4 Circle Punch #119850.  I made another set of tealights and put them in a slider box.

Tealightsetholidayslidebox As much as I love to make cards, I also love to make 3-D projects and gifts so leave a comment on this post and let me know what project from my 3-D Items and Gifts category is your favorite.  I will pick a random winner on Tuesday and give away one of my Ribbon Flower Pins.

Holly & Jolly Gift Bag

Hollynjollybag2

Remember the NOTECARD SET I made with the Holly & Jolly Rub-ons 119249.  I love these rub-ons and the fact that they coordinate perfectly with the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper 117159 makes them even better.  I make gift bags every year and these two items work beautifully on a gift bag.

Take a plain gift bag and measure it.  Cut your main layer to that size.  Cut your Designer Series Paper 1/4" smaller for a layer.  I then ran a strip of Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die 120893 to create the scallop trim accent. 

I applied the rub-ons to a scrap of Very Vanilla and added a knot of Twill Tape.  Layer that on a piece of Cherry Cobbler.  I made the scallop rectangle by adapting the instructions in this document to my needs.  Download Gift Card Holder

I think I will put a gift for my mom in this bag, she loves it when I give her things I have made. :-)

Northern Frost - More Inlaid Embossing

Inlaidnorthernfrost

Are you sick of these yet!!  Apparently I'm not. :-)  This technique is just so cool, I cannot stop doing it.

You can order any of the supplies to make this project from my ONLINE STORE.

I used the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Sizzlit 120901 to cut the snowflakes and I used a 2 Way Glue Pen 100425 to adhere them to the Whisper White layer.  Then I cranked the whole thing through my Big Shot with my Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 119976 to create this look.  The strip of Crumb Cake was created with the Scallop Trim Border Punch 118402.

I think I have one (or two) more Inlaid Embossing card to share with you so stay tuned.  You can find the others in the BIG SHOT CATEGORY in the left right side bar.
