Pillow Box … Pillow Gifts …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a cute little 3-D project to share with you. Last night when my Holiday Retreat attendee’s returned to their rooms for the night, they had a little surprise …

Each guest received this little Pillow Box filled with holiday goodies! I created them with the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies from the Holiday catalog and the “Merry Moments” Designer Series paper from the Annual Catalog.

I teamed up this combination with the “Oh, What Fun” stamp set found on page 5 of the Holiday catalog.  This stamp set coordinates with the “Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit” … so you can see how versatile it is.

I chose the “Wishing You A Sweet Season” because my Pillow Box was filled with sweet treats. To create the focal point, I cut out the greeting with the Circle Framelits Dies and added a half of a Foil Doily to really draw the eye.

The Real Red cardstock banner also helped to draw your eye to the greeting, but I wanted to tone it down just a bit so I added the beautiful white glitter ribbon from the “Gold and White Glitter Ribbon” found on page 29 of the Holiday Catalog.

The make great office gifts or something cute to tuck a sweet treat into.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLIES ….

Thankful …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to share with you a card that my Technique Clubs made this month. Our technique was “Embossing Embellishments”. It is a simple way to enhance the fabulous embellishments you have at home.

On our card today, we embossed our “Very Vintage Designer Buttons”. They are pretty just the way they are, but with a little gold embossing powder they turn into a true vintage treasure!

000_2760

Our button is kissed with the “Gold Bakers Twine” – attached with a glue dot. Trust me, this is one that you do not want to string through the button holes! Just tie it in a bow and use the Mini Glue Dot to attached – easy peasy!

The leaves are stamped from our “Vintage Leaves” stamp set and cut out with the coordinating “Leaflets” Framelits… These can be bundled to save 15% off your purchase. They are laid upon the pretty Olive checkered designer paper from the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper.

000_2764

The entire card front along with the leaves and buttons were popped up with the dimensionals to create depth and texture to the card.

Last but not least is our “Thankful” greeting which comes from the Hostess stamp set; Six Sayings. You will have to host a stampin’ party (either book or home) or purchase the hostess minimum to obtain this set.  That’s easy too … just call together a few of your friends, and contact me for anything you may need.

I am “Thankful” you are visiting my blog ~

Have a wonderful day!

Singin’ in the Pines

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are having a good week so far. Sometimes I think the hardest part about blogging is not coming up with the different projects … but coming up with a title! lol  So today’s Singin’ in the Pines is my way of paying homage to the trees and my greeting … falala.

000_2753

The “pines” are just one of three designs that come in the beautiful Foil Vellum and works well with the Foil sheets. I punched a ring to slide my banner through and then anchored it with the foil doily.

I love, love, love the “Snowflake Elements” and embossed them in silver to coordinate with the rest of the elements on my card.

The cherry on top … Rhinestones! A little bling looks great for the holidays.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Have an awesome day ~

Falling for You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

OK – there are way too many leaves off the tree’s already … Where did autumn go? This is my favorite time of year and I feel like I was so busy that I missed it!

So I’m hanging on a little longer by creating a card that I’ll keep on my desk till the snow falls! This was a fun card to make, I used the “Baby Wipe” technique to get all this color …

000_2746

I knew I wanted to use the “Sheltering Tree” stamp set, and the “Baby Wipe” technique is the easiest and quickest way to create the explosion of color. I laid out a stack of 4 – 5 baby wipes and began dropping ink from the refill bottles.

I used Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red re-inkers, then pressed the leaves into the inked up baby wipe and stamped it onto the tree which was already stamped in Chocolate Chip.

I added the leaves to create my ground cover and then added a greeting which is included in the stamp set. To jazz it up a bit, I punched the corners with our new Curvy Corner Trio Punch … I love the fun design.

000_2745

A simple card yes, but too pretty to resist.

Thank you for joining me today,

I hope you have a good day.

Tag … You’re It!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! A bit rainy for us on Saturday, but Sunday turned out to be a pretty nice day. I just love Autumn … all that beautiful color before the cold winds begin to blow and the snow arrives.

Just a quick post today  …  I have a cute project for you created by Sarah Sagert / 2014–2015 Artisan Design Team member. I couldn’t resist … we all need tags for the holidays and Sarah’s are the cutest.

She teamed up the Season of Cheer cardstock and Designer paper with the Holly Jolly Greeting stamp set. She also used the Scallop Circle Punches and the Deco Labels collection Framelits.

I will be back with a cute tag project of my own after I return from retreat … can’t show you now, it would spoil their surprise!!

I’ll be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals!

Have a marvelous day ~

Simply Sunday: Blessings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I will share a simple card layout that can be recreated for any occasion! A simple change of designer paper and a greeting will totally transform the card.

My card today will focus on the blessings of Christmas. I began with the wonderful Hostess stamp set in the Holiday Catalog: Six Sayings, it’s such a wonderfully versatile stamp set.

000_2736

I embossed the greeting in silver and mounted it onto Marina Mist cardstock, which is also the color I used for my base. Something about blue and snowflakes. I created a tag with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

The greeting hinted at the designer paper I would use … “snowflakes” was the key! What better way to highlight my greeting than to use the beautiful “Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum” and it’s silver snowflakes!

000_2738

Put these few steps together and you have a cute and simple card.

Thank your for stopping by ~

Have a simply beautiful day.
