I was going through some old picture files and came across this project from several years ago. Do you remember when Stampin' Up used to sell ultrafine glitter in a variety of colors? I really miss those. I just ordered the silver and gold so I may have to revisit this technique.
I love making tags with the new Scalloped Tag punch but I've made so many I'm running out of things to put them on. Not only does the punch make a quick easy tag but it also makes nice bookmarks, treat holders and belly bands. I've been using my tag punch so often that I think my Envelope punch board is getting jealous. Here's one of the scalloped tags on a card. It also features the Petite Petals stamp set and coordinating punch.
The new Petite Petals punch from the Occasions Catalogue makes the cutest little daffodils. The punch has a stamp set that coordinates with it as well but for this sample I used Daffodil Delight card stock. To make the center I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack flower, spritzed it with water then formed it around the end of my piercing tool with the protective cover on. You can form the centre around a wooden skewer.
I punched two triangles using the Perfect Pennants Builder Punch and the Triangle Punch and snipped pieces out to make the stem and leaves. I traced along one side with a Wild Wassabi marker and highlighted the other with the White Chalk marker. To make the banner I cut a 1" strip and punched both ends with the scalloped tag topper punch. All the products on this card are currently available from Stampin' Up
My Dad's birthday was yesterday. I asked my Daughter to pick up a bunch of lottery tickets to put in his card...what do you get a man who has almost everything and their birthday falls 3 weeks after Christmas? He likes the time consuming scratch kind so she picked out a variety to keep him busy for a while. I had my little handmade card all set go but the scratch tickets she brought home were HUGE.
I had a couple of the napkin holders left over from Stampin' Up's Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit. The napkin holder has a double scorline on the side to allow extra room for a napkin so on one I used the angled score line and the other I folded flat. As a result the flat holder fit nicely inside of the other holder to make a nice little pocket folder large enough to hold the tickets.
I haven't ordered too many products from the Occasions mini yet but one product I was anxious to try was the gold sequins. I cut them off the string to use individually. They add a nice little touch of bling. I attached mine with crystal effects. I had trouble getting a good photo. The layer behind the black is baked brown sugar. I colored the leaves with a white chalk marker then colored over the white with an old olive marker.
I Love snowdays! Looking outside at a blizzard that I don't have to go out in makes me feel like stamping. Today I thought it would be nice to post something cheery. This is a quick simple card using the Simply Celebrate stamp set from the Occasions mini. I stamped the sentiment and flower in black stazon and colored in the lines with a Daffodil marker. The flower is from the Flower Shop stamp set.
I think I have a new addiction. I tried making a teapot card using Stampin' Up's oval framelits and now I can't stop. I posted a pic showing how to make all the parts and pieces or you can scroll down and watch the video tutorial. Here are a few of the versions I made so far. The finished size is approximately 5" x 6.5"
Sorry Typepad is being silly at the moment and won't let me embed my video so here's the link Teapot Card
I took some time out to reorganize my craft room over the holidays and realized how many new products I own that I haven't really played with yet. One of those products is Stampin' Up's Circle Cards Thinlits Die which makes a flip card. I used one of the sentiment stamps from Love You to the Moon and some circle punches to make the happy face on the flip side of the circle.
