Stampin’ Up Fry Box & Elfin’ Fun!

Hi everyone! I know I haven’t posted anything in an age and a half, but I was inspired to share some of my family’s fun with our elf, Edwin. I arrived home from work today to find a care package at my front doorstep from my dear friend, Amy Koenders (you can check out her awesome blog here.)  What a wonderful surprise to find the Stampin’ Up! Fry Box Die and All About Sugar Stamp set along with some chocolates and a beautiful card!  I knew right away that I wanted to use it for my Elfin’ Fun!

IMG_0560

Isn’t that fry box just the cutest!  It was SO EASY to make too!  One run through the big shot, and two strips of adhesive, and voila!  I just love the polka dot design of the Merry Moments DSP from Stampin’ Up!

I also love the Elf on the Shelf tradition.  I have so much fun scouring the boards of Pinterest for inspiration.  There are a million cute ideas out there, and there is nothing better than seeing my son Carter’s face light up as he reacts to Edwin’s antics.  It is the first thing he does each morning.  He just can’t wait to see what Edwin has been up to during the night.  Here are some more of Edwin’s adventures from 2015.

I hope you have enjoyed my share today.  Happy Holidays to all… I hope to be back in the New Year with some more stamping projects.

If you need any supplies you can shop now in my online store!  Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions.  I’m here to help!

Happy Stamping!

Hey, Valentine! A Sweet Tweet for You! – Stampin’ Up!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and I’m so excited about the Hey, Valentine stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This year will be my son’s first year in a school environment for Valentine’s Day, and I am thrilled with how cute the valentines for his class have turned out!

Hey, Valentine Candy Treats (2 of 3)

Aren’t those just adorable!  I used the “a sweet tweet for YOU” stamp from the Hey, Valentine stamp set and colored them with my Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers.  I love how they turned out!  And, did you know that with every $50 purchase, you can choose a set of Blendabilities for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  There are 12 different color sets to choose from, and the sale goes until March 31, 2015.

Hey, Valentine Candy Treats (1 of 3)

After coloring in all my cute little birds, I cut them out using the coordinating die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  Then I filled 1″ x 8″ cellophane bags with jelly beans and stapled the tag to the top.  I used some leftover bakers twine from my January Paper Pumpkin Kit to add a little bow on top of the staple (but you could use Blushing Bride or Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine as a substitute).

Hey, Valentine Candy Treats (3 of 3)

I punched out a 1″ circle in Pink Pirouette card stock and wrote “from Carter” on the back of each treat.  I just know he is going to love giving these out to his friends at school.  Every time he sees the treats stacked on the counter in my crafting studio he asks when he gets to give out his “beans.”

Hey, Valentine Candy Treats (2 of 3)

The moment I saw the Hey, Valentine stamp set in the catalog, I knew I was going to use it for Carter’s class treats.  I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out!  If you are a fan of this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the very bottom of this post following the supply list.

I hope you will consider selecting me as your demonstrator for your stamping needs.  If you need any supplies you can shop now in my online store!  Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions or if you would like a catalog.  I’m here to help!

Happy Stamping!

January 2015 My Paper Pumpkin – Stampin’ Up!

Today I want to share with you the January 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit.  This kit is so cute, and just in time for Valentine’s Day!

January 2015 Paper Pumpkin (3 of 7)

The kit came with the supplies to make 24 treat bags and tags! Everything you would need for an entire classroom of little children for Valentine’s Day!

January 2015 Paper Pumpkin (5 of 7)

This project came together very quickly and it was easy and fun to do.  I’m planning to let my son give these treats to his friends in the neighborhood, and I’m going to give the rest to the administrators and secretarial staff at my school as a little thank you gift for Valentine’s day.  Wouldn’t it be great to come to work and see one of these cute little treats on your desk?

January 2015 Paper Pumpkin (1 of 7) January 2015 Paper Pumpkin (2 of 7)

Although this particular project was pretty intuitive, Paper Pumpkin always comes complete with detailed instructions that show you exactly what to do.  That makes it the perfect gift for someone who is new to stamping!

January 2015 Paper Pumpkin (7 of 7)

For most of the treat bags, I followed the directions in the kit and used only the stamps and ink provided, but for this one, I couldn’t resist doing a personalized touch by using the Sophisticated Serifs alphabet stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  Isn’t that precious?  I love anything with my initials on it! LOL. 🙂

January 2015 Paper Pumpkin (6 of 7)

Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit – Stampin’ Up!

My friend and fellow stamper, Amy Koenders and I recently had a “Stampin’ Playdate” to assemble the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit.  The cards in this kit are just adorable!

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (6 of 7)

Although, I love the end result of this kit, it isn’t a quick one to put together.  Amy and I worked together for a little over 3 hours to put it together.  It was a really fun evening, and a great way to spend time with friends!  I would definitely recommend it as a social evening for you and some crafting friends!

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (3 of 7)

As the name suggests, the kit is intended to be watercolored, but Amy and I decided to save some time by using a brayer and sponge daubers instead.  We used a brayer on the trees and the sleds, rather than watercoloring them and waiting for the ink to dry. 🙂

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (5 of 7)

This kit comes with materials to create some of the cards in four languages (English, German, Spanish, and French).  Since my sister lives in Germany, I decided to make one of the cards in German.  She’s going to love that!

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (1 of 7)

For the stripes on this card, we used a mask and sponge dauber to save a little time.  We also sponged the letters.  Sponging before you punch out the letters saves a lot of time.

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (2 of 7)

Amy and I used the same sponging technique on the word “Merry” in this card.

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (7 of 7)

The card kit comes with the card bases and embellishments needed to make 20 cards, 5 of each of the four designs (stamps, ink, and adhesive not included).  However, we did decide to add a few extra embellishments for some extra wow!  We used rhinestones colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities and the Frosted Sequins for a little bling. 🙂

Watercolor Wonder Simply Created (6 of 7)

All in all, this kit provided Amy and I with some great “girlfriend time” and we each walked away with 10 finished Christmas cards!  I’d say that is a deal you can’t beat.  If you are a fan of this project, please pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list.

November My Paper Pumpkin – Stampin’ Up!

I’m a little behind schedule with sharing the November Paper Pumpkin kit… the December kit will be arriving soon!  I can’t wait to see what it holds, because this last one was just too cute!

Snowflake November Paper Pumpkin (1 of 4)

The kit came with the supplies to make 8 cards and 12 gift tags! They even included snowflake embellishments for the envelopes!

Snowflake November Paper Pumpkin (4 of 4)

I love all the details of this set.  The die cut snowflakes, the gatefold closure tied with silver bakers twine,  rhinestone and washi tape accents just to name a few.

Snowflake November Paper Pumpkin (2 of 4)

The silver foil used for the snowflakes and the hole reinforcement on the gift tags really sparkles and gives them a festive feel.  I think they will be lovely under the tree with silver ribbon on my packages.  The double layered tag also adds an element of interest.  You can see a bit of the silver washi tape peeking out from the bottom layer, and there is even a “to:    from:” stamp on the white layer underneath.

Snowflake November Paper Pumpkin (3 of 4)

This kit was fun to put together, and I was able to create 8 cards and 12 gift tags in one evening!  You’ve got to love a quick and easy project!  If you are a fan be sure to pin this project to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the very bottom of the post after the weekly deals.

Santa & Co. and Nordic Noel Holiday Treat Boxes – Stampin’ Up!

You know you are an avid crafter when you decide to give baked goods as gifts just so that you have a reason to make cute gift boxes!  I spent an entire day baking last week for that very reason!  Boy, am I backwards!  Anyway, I just love how these cute boxes turned out.  I’ve still got more to make for all of my homemade sweet treats, so you can expect to see more of these from me soon. LOL. 🙂

DSP Gift Boxes (6 of 9)

These gift boxes are a great way to use up leftover holiday DSP too!  I was able to create each box using a 6″ x 6″ sheet of the primary DSP design and a 3-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ scrap of the accent DSP design.

DSP Gift Boxes (7 of 9)

I found the directions for this cute Santa punch art piece on Pinterest.  You can see the directions for how to make it on Alexandra Bleicher’s blog by clicking here.  Isn’t he just adorable, and the Nordic Noel DSP sets him off perfectly! (Note: She used two retired punches, the ornament punch and the blossom petals punch to create the hat, but I think you could substitute oval or circle punches and just trim them to be the right shape.)

DSP Gift Boxes (8 of 9)

I must admit that I wasn’t crazy about these two designs from the Santa & Co. DSP pack, but I love how they turned out on these boxes!  The tree designs blend seamlessly with the Tree Punch.  I also like that these are a little more masculine than some of my other designs (although I think they are also suitable for females).

DSP Gift Boxes (9 of 9)

I love how the Red Glimmer Paper mat makes this sentiment pop!  Sometimes you just need a little dazzle to brighten things up!

DSP Gift Boxes (6 of 9)

As I said earlier, these are the first of many treat boxes!  I am having so much fun making them… it was definitely worth all the hours in the kitchen!  If you are a fan of this project, please pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list.

Endless Wishes Gift Package – Stampin’ Up!

For today’s project, I created a tag using the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I attached the tag to a gorgeous gold box that I created using one of my favorite new tools, The Gift Box Punch Board!  I have been having so much fun playing with that thing!

Endless Wishes Tag (2 of 2)

This box was created using some sparkly gold card stock that I had on hand, but it would be even prettier made with Gold Glimmer Paper from Stampin’ Up!  This box follows the directions for a 4″ x 4″ x 4″ cube that are printed right on the front of the Gift Box Punch Board.

Endless Wishes Tag (1 of 2)

For the tag, I stamped the images from the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set on a Cherry Cobbler tag.  I used Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Notice how I was able to curve the words “celebrate the” around the word “season.”  This is one of the great things that is possible with photopolymer stamps!

Endless Wishes Tag (2 of 2)

I finished everything off by adding a layer of gold foil behind my tag, popped on a little star, and tied the whole package up with a gorgeous Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon bow.

I love that I will be able to put this package under the tree without any additional wrapping, and the recipient will treasure the packaging as much as the contents!  I don’t know about you, but at my house we have a “box stash” that gets recycled from year to year.  I imagine this beauty will get added to the collection.  If you like this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me. You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.

Also, Please consider selecting me as your demonstrator for your stamping needs.  I would love the opportunity to earn your business.  If you need any supplies you can shop now in my online store!  Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions or if you would like a catalog.  I’m here to help!

Happy Stampers Holiday Blog Hop – Stampin’ Up!

November Blog Hop

The Happy Stampers group is back with another blog hop!  Today, we have created projects with a holiday theme. This may be your first stop on the blog hop, or you may have linked to me from Amy Koender’s website. Either way, I hope you enjoy the projects I have in store for you today.  My projects today feature the Under the Tree Specialty DSP and the Festival of Trees stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I just love how these turned out!

Festival of Trees Blog Hop (4 of 8)

For my birthday, my sister gave me a massage gift certificate, and I ended up winning a candle in a drawing from the spa.  I decided to create a custom box for the candle, using my gift box punch board and the fantastic Under the Tree Specialty DSP!

Festival of Trees Blog Hop (1 of 8)

The box fits the candle perfectly! I jazzed up the adorable package by creating a belly band and adorning it with a tag created using the Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating Tree Punch.  I stamped my tree on whisper white card stock and then sandwiched it between two circles of craft card stock.  Add a star, and some other embellishments and presto… you have a super cute package that anyone would love to receive.

Festival of Trees Blog Hop (7 of 8)

For my card, I used the same elements to create a coordinated look.  I used the stars textured embossing folder on the card base, to add some extra dimension to the front of the card.  I like how it mirrors the star on top of the tree and adds extra texture to the design.  I also looped a little linen thread behind the tag to provide another interesting element.  I like how it all came together.

Festival of Trees Blog Hop (8 of 8)

I finished off the inside of my card, by adding a strip of the Under the Tree Specialty DSP to the inside of the card.  I am really pleased with how these projects turned out!

Everything Eleanor & Beauty of the Season Ornaments – Stampin’ Up!

This week, I have been drawing much inspiration from my friend Amy Koenders.  Last week, Amy posted a project where she stamped on ceramic ornaments purchased from the local craft store.  I was spurred on to see what other media would be good to stamp on.  I started by creating this wooden ornament featuring the Beauty of the Season stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Beauty of the Season Ornament (2 of 2)

I stamped the image using black Memento Ink, which bled a little on the wood surface, but I found that I wasn’t bothered by the effect.  Next, I colored the image with my Blendabilities markers and added some snow with my Stampin’ Chalk Marker.  I finished things off with a little red bow.  I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, even if the stamping isn’t as crisp as it would be on paper.

Everything Eleanor Joy (1 of 1)

This was my next foray into the unknown… What happens when you try to heat emboss a porcelain ornament?  Well, it turns out just beautifully.  For this ornament, I used the flourish stamp from Everything Eleanor from Stampin’ Up!  I stamped the image with versamark ink and sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I used a small paint brush to eliminate the extra powder that stuck to the porcelain, and then I embossed it using my heat tool.  It took longer to melt than it does on paper, but the end result is really beautiful.  I embellished with some gold foil stars and rhinestones, and VOILA!

I had a lot of fun seeing what would happen if I stamped on surfaces I had never tried before.  I purchased a few other items that I haven’t experimented yet, so stay tuned for the results.  If you like this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me. You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.
