5 November 2012 – Wish List

Back to Christmas!!!  I needed to get a wish list up on the fridge so that I could let Craig, my husband, know what to get me for Christmas and vice versa.

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! have On Board Sheets of chipboard?  They come as 14.6cm x 35cm pieces and you get 6 in a pack for only $11.95.  You can cut them using the Big Shot or just with your paper trimmer.  I cut one in half and covered it in my favourite DSP, you guessed it, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP!!

I created a word document of just lines and printed it out and trimmed it to fit.  I mounted it in Real Red and Gumball Green respectively and stamped a couple of images from Bells & Boughs stamp set.   I also printed out the heading for each one on Whisper White cardstock and used my other favourite framelit (Apothecary Accents) to mount it.  I did cut a couple of extra shapes to create an edge.  Then pop a magnet on the back and it’s good to go!!  Let me know what you think!

29 October 2012 – Candlelight Gorgeousness!!!

I am in love with the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP in the Holiday Catalogue.  It is just gorgeous!!!!  There are two sheets of flocked window sheets which are just beautiful!!!

I cased today’s card from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Stephanie Robnett on a demo only facebook group.  It’s not exactly the same but that doesn’t matter.  I like it!!

I really love the Apothecary Accents framelits which I used to cut out the centre piece.  They can even cut through the glimmer paper.

I coloured the flowers using blenders pens and ink pressed into the lid of the ink pad.  I’m not very good at doing shading but I think I did ok on this one.
