The colors I used are Baja Breeze and Real Red cardstock, and Stampin' Up Ski Slope Designer Series Paper. I added a zigzag stitch around the DSP panel and I used my Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder to emboss the red strip down the middle. I popped the image panel up on foam squares and added Stickles to the snowflakes and also to the punched snowflakes (I can't seem to get away from those punched snowflakes this week!) The stamp I used is a Penny Black stamp. Isn't he cute! I put brads in all the corners and it was complete! Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

The challenge is to make anything but a card, or ABC challenge : ) I chose to make this cute box in a bag. You can find the instructions for this here:
For my paper I used Scenic Route Sonoma DP, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip. I followed the instructions for the bag, stamped my ornament image with VersaMark and embossed with copper embossing powder. I colored the image in with sponge daubers using my Kiwi Kiss ink pad, colored the stripes in with my Real Red marker, stamped the Merry Christmas with Chocolate Chip and cut it out. I raised it up with foam squares onto my squares that I cut with my Nestabilities. The snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and I put a Kaiser green rhinestone in the middle of each one. I used polka dot red sheer ribbon to tie the tabs together, and Offray red ribbon for the bow on the ornament. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Every year we host Thanksgiving. I always enjoy decorating the table, and thought I would make some pretty place cards.
I used Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and Old Olive cardstock for my colors. I stamped the pumpkin image which is from a retired Stampin Up set called Harvest Hello that I found on Ebay : ) I colored the image in with Copic markers, and cut it out. I punched a 1 1/4 inch circle out of Very Vanilla and distressed it with some brown ink. I punched the scalloped circle with the SU Scallop Circle punch and used a little 1/16" Circle Punch to punch little holes all the way around. I adhered the circle to the scalloped circle, and then popped the pumpkins up using foam squares. I printed out everyone's names on the computer using Edwardian Script font and cut them out. The Chocolate Chip panel is dry embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I added brads to the 2 corners, and a spiral clip to the top left corner with some ribbon. The base is the Pumpkin Pie. I hope you like them, and thanks for stopping by!

Welcome! This is my first official day as a blogger! I have gotten very hooked on stamping and paper crafting, and people are always asking how I made this or that, so now I can post the details on here! I'm starting my blog off with some items that I made for my friend's baby shower. Shown here are the invitation, a table decoration, and the favors. All of the items were made with Green Tea Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Stampin' Up. The cardstock is Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, and Certainly Celery from Stampin' Up as well. The image is from the She's All That set also from SU. I stamped the image with Baja Breeze ink onto the Baja Breeze cardstock. The ovals were cut out with Oval Nestabilities. The paint can was simply wrapped with the paper and ribbon, and I used the image, flowers, and sentiment to cover the seams. The flowers were made with a flower punch, and pearls were added to the center. The large flowers were cut with my Cricut machine and I added a punched flower and button to the center. The nugget candy was wrapped with paper (1 inch x 3 inches) and a punched flower was glued to the top. The little bag was a template I got from Splitcoast Stampers called Leigh's Totally Totes. Thanks for looking and I hope you stop by again!
