6 July 2012 – Gift cards and Box

Hi everyone!!

Hope you are enjoying the lovely cool weather that we’ve been having!!  At last month’s Stamp Club, we made the cutest box and 3 little gift cards.  I used the 3 x 3 box tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers, click here for the link.

We got to play with the new Simply Scored tool, which makes scoring for boxes so easy!  I really like it!

Here’s the box.

I just love the Twitterpated DSP.  It’s so cute and I love the different sheets in the pack to give a different look.  Here’s the cards.

We also used the new Diagonal scoring plate to make matching little envelopes but I forgot to take a photo of one.

Stamp Set:  Tea Shoppe

Paper:  Twitterpated DSP, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red.

Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze

Accessories:  Big Shot, Scallop Square Duo, Scallop Square, Ovals, Designer Frames embossing folder, Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon, Baja Breeze pleated satin ribbon, Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon.

Happy Stamping!

3 October 2011 – Simply Stockings!!

Can you believe that it’s almost time to start planning for Christmas!!  I was asked at work recently to think about what leave I wanted to take over Christmas.  It’s too early to think about yet!!!!!

Stampin’ Up! have a great promotion for the month of October.  You can purchase the stamp set – Stitched Stockings and the matching punch – early before the next mini catalogue is released or you can earn it for free when you host a workshop and have over $450 in sales.  How exciting is that!!!

Seeing as I am in denial about Christmas coming so quickly, here’s a card that I made that I cased from here for a stamping friend who had a baby recently.
