Joyful wreath


Christmas card uses Stampin' Up! Wondrous Wreath stamp set and Wonderful Wreath framelits

I love Pinterest with an unholy passion. And though I pin about 5 times as many cards as I make, I sometimes get inspired in a way that won't let me rest until I go STAMP something.

Check out this beautiful card by Teneale Williams. The colors she used for her wreath are soooo gorgeous, and I love the banner over it.

So ... my version borrows the colors: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Cherry Cobbler, and has a banner. But it's very different, and that's the fun part of CASEing. :-)

Hope you're finding lots of fabulous ideas out there on the Internets and getting inspired to ink up your stamps!!

Ingredients

Paper

  • Whisper White base plus 3 1/2" by 4 1/2", with scrap for the wreath and the banner.
  • Cherry Cobbler cut to 3 3/4" by 4 3/4" 

Stamp sets

  • Wondrous Wreath
Ink

  • Bermuda Bay,
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Cherry Cobbler

Accessories: 

  • Dimensionals
  • Wonderful Wreath framelits
  • Snowflake Card thinlits (the banner)
  • Rhinestones, because BLING

Seasonally Scattered Love

anniversary card

The hubby and I celebrated 10 years of wedded bliss yesterday.  This seemed like the perfect card for the occasion.  I did a quick Pinterest search to see what kind of over the top, ridiculous gestures were out there for the ten year anniversary.  

Sadly, we do not own matching shirts, so that one is out.

Cute idea, but unreasonable for several reasons, at least in my case.
1. I didn't preserve my dress.  It was cut into a "Super Pooper" cape (late at night, at my wits end) when my oldest daughter was struggling with potty training.  
2. My husband would not get dressed like that for one photo.
3. Did she order another $185 rose bouquet from the florist just for this picture?  
4. Look at that cloud, shaped like a heart.  Are you kidding me with this?

The traditional gift for 10 years is Tin or Aluminum.  This is how we celebrated. 

Cheers!


Ingredients:

  • Whisper White card base

Grateful Four Feathers Card

Grateful Four Feathers Card
This card design was CASEd from Pinterest and Kristine McNickle's blog.  I loved how simple the card design looked and how great the colors looked together.  I changed the Baker's Twine to all Whisper White Baker's Twine and I used Whisper White for both of the feathers.  I also didn't use DSP on the card like Kristine did on her card. I hope you will enjoy the simplicity of this card design and give it a try too.  After borrowing the Four Feathers stamp set and the Feathers Framelits from a friend and using them for a few cards, I fell in love with how easy it is to create simple cards with this stamp set and framelits bundle.  So I ordered the bundle right away and you will too if you see the gorgeous cards created with the Four Feathers set on Pinterest.

You've been booed!


Halloween gifts for the office using Tag a Bag gift boxes


I got booed this week at work. No, it's a good thing! I came back from lunch to find a treat sack full of candy and a dancing pumpkin man on my desk. There were instructions on how to boo someone else. How fun!

I'll fess up and say I didn't get these done overnight -- I had a work dinner to go to that first evening. But look how cute these boxes are!!

Halloween gifts using From the Crypt

I'm giving myself boonus points for cute :-).

To make these, I dipped into my stash. Each box uses a mix of current and retired items. I love these little Tag a Bag gift boxes, and they are still for sale. I've used them for all kinds of small gifts -- they come in kraft, and you can dress them up however you'd like.

In this case, I intended to make both the boxes the same, but goofed the big stamp on one. No worries! I pulled out some leftovers from the Halloween printer box kit that Stampin' Up! offered a couple of years ago and dressed up the box in orange stripes and chevrons. My original design uses the retired From the Crypt stamp set and the current tag punch -- plus some retired GIANT rhinestones. Both boxes got a lovely Basic Black satin bow.

Handmade Halloween gifts


What's inside? A "vampire" dark chocolate bar, a handful of Halloween fun-size candy, and a silly joke. I can't wait to surprise someone at work with a boo of their own!

Four Feathers Bird Card

Fine Feathers Bird Card
This card was inspired from the Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenges - Animal Theme.  Kristine McNickle created a beautiful card using the Fine Feathers stamp set and the bird punch for this challenge.  I used her card as inspiration and a starting point for my card.  I decided to use three feathers in the color combinations of Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate and Wisteria Wonder.  For this card, I used the Silver 1/8" Ribbon and pulled one of the threads until the ribbon frayed.  I feel the frayed ribbon looks like a part of the bird's feathers.  I love how this worked out!  I added a "thankful for you" greeting in Basic Black punched out with a Word Window punch and backed with a Modern Label punch in Smoky Slate at the top of the card.  Tip: When fraying the ribbon, pull the loose thread lightly or it may not unravelIf it starts to knot, cut the ribbon and try again.

Changed up greeting and no rhinestones on this version

I kinda like Kinda Eclectic

stampin up

I borrowed this set from Kim, because I needed a stamp set that would be easy and beautiful to demonstrate at a workshop.  My inspiration started with Kim's sample card.  I liked that she used the butterfly punch and I loved the color combo- a sampling of the new in colors for 2014-2016.

But I just couldn't resist poking around the internet for some other samples using Kinda Eclectic.  My stamp space is right in front of a computer, and I cannot for the life of me sit in front of a computer without Googling an image of the stamp set I'm about to use.

So then I found this sample by Krista.  I liked her layout, and I liked that it was a little brighter mounted on the orange card base.

                                stampin up

That took me to my card:

birthday card, stampin up, collage card

I wanted a bright, fall look, so I used Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Pacific Point.  I added a little twisted piece of twine to the butterfly.  (Sorry, he didn't photograph so clearly.)  

So, that's a little picture story of the creative progression on this card.  Sometimes it's nice to break down that process and look back to how you got your finished project.  How does your creativity flow?

Ingredients:

Stamp Sets 
  • Kinda Eclectic
  • And Many More
Paper
  • Pumpkin Pie card base
  • Whisper White cut to 5 1/4" x 4"
