It's hard to imagine snowflakes when the leaves are just starting to come out but I wanted to try the new pressed clay in the Stampin' Up Cookie Press molds. They work as well as the clay molds giving us a few more shapes to work with. I sprinkled my cookie mold with Dazzling Diamonds to give my snowflake some bling, then pressed the clay into the mold (it's easier to work with if it's on the wooden handle) and put it in the freezer for an hour. It popped right out and I had a perfect snowflake.
We were hoping to be in our new house for Christmas but we've hit too many snags along the way so it doesn't look like that will be possible. Since all our Christmas stuff is still in storage we've been making our decorations this year. Here's one of the decorations we made for our tree...Lindor Elves made from Lindor Chocolates and Stampin' Up Punches.
Here's a list of the punches I used: Hat: pennant punch, Fur & Nose: Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Ears: Merry Minis Ornament, Eyes: Owl Builder, Arms: Word Window, Head: Small Oval, Collar: Small Scallop Circle.
Tip: Punch two scalloped circles and staple them on either side of one of the cellophane tails. The head will hide the staple and the chocolate will be held securely in place.
I've been playing with Stampin' Up's shaker frames and I thought the dot from the centre of the frames made a perfect nose for Rudolf. The sweater print is from the Snow Festival DSP.
Here's a list of the punchs I used. Head: owl punch, Antlers: Bird Builder punch, Eyes: Itty bitty Punch Pack, hooves: merry minis (ornament), legs: modern label, sweater: large tag punch, arms: 1-1/4" circle punch.
Additional Supplies: Stamps; More Merry Messages, Black Markers, Cherry Cobler embossing powder, crystal effects.
I started wrapping Christmas gifts this week and for a change I didn’t cheat and buy tags. I used the two striped patterns from the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper pack to make 240 of the quickest tags I’ve ever made.
1. Cut two of the striped sheets into 10 strips. They were different widths depending on the pattern.
2. Cut 12” x 12” sheets of Whisper White card stock into 3” strips and glue the DSP strips to the bottom of the card stock
3. Cut each strip into 2” pieces to make 2” by 3” tags
Trim the corners or tops with punches if desired.
This would be a good last minute Christmas class. The square print DSP is perfect for little 3” x 3” cards and the remaining prints made nice cookie packages. I love a no waste class!
I’ve put together this collection of 12 original Christmas gift card/money holders using a variety of products from the 2009/2010 Idea Book and Catalogue. Some can be put in an envelope and given as a card and others are designed to hang on a Christmas tree.
Update: I've had several people ask why this is no longer available. This was one of my first classes and it was a pdf file that I emailed out. I lost many of my old files last spring when my computer crashed and I no longer have the document. I hadn't intended to repost it but when I updated my post to say it was no longer available, it went up as a new post. I don't want to remove it as several people have linked to it so here it is...an old random post of an unavailable class front and centre.
It’s time for more Punch Art. I hope you’re as excited as I am! Let’s clear out those card stock scraps this holiday season and make room for Santa. I’ve created 23 Holiday Punch Art items using current Stampin’ Up punches. All the supplies I used for this class can be found in the 2012/2013 Stampin’ Up catalogue or the 2012 Holiday mini. Decorate your tags, bags and cards this year with punch art.
Here are the details....you’ll get full color photos, cheat sheets, step by step instructions and videos for each punch art project. How you use your punch art it up to you. I’ve included instructions for two bonus projects; a Simple Gift Card Holder and a Gift Bag. Use these as the base for your punch art or create some tags using some of Stampin’ Up’s tag dies or framelits.
The cost of this class is $20 CAD. Click on the PayPal like below to order.
Please note: Although I design my classes with Stampin' Up demonstrators in mind you don't need to be a demonstrator to order it. And the class is online so it doesn't matter where you live. Once you place your order I'll email you the class link and login information so you can access the class.
My Stitched Stocking Online Class included a couple of punch art ornaments for our four legged friends. Here's one for the bird lovers out there. I used the Language of Friendship and Tags til Christmas stamp sets. The berries were made by stamping the largest flower from the Language of Friendship stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and punching it out with the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack then sponging around the edges with Cherry Cobbler. I coated them with Crystal Effects after I had them glued into place.
I love Stampin’ Up’s Stitched Stocking Stamp set and coordinating Stocking Builder punch. Both of these products are available in the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalogue but they aren’t just for the holidays. I’ve put together instructions for 30 cards and projects using the stocking punch and stamp set. These projects can be used throughout the year and include cards for occasions such as Birthday, Anniversary, Get Well, Retirement, Fourth of July, Autumn and Halloween.
The instructions include full color photos with step by step instructions for all 30 projects. These projects include 20 all occasion cards, 7 Christmas cards, 2 pet treat ornaments and a Christmas tag. The cost of the class instructions are $20 CAD. Click on the Paypal button at the bottom of the post to order your class today.
Within 24 hours after your payment is confirmed, you will receive the login information and password for the class blog so you can download the instructions and get started on your projects.

I couldn't resist hopping on the rosette, yo yo, lollie band wagon (I'm not quite sure what they're called). I made a Christmas version in pastel colors. I used some of the glimmer paper and other sparkly products from Stampin' Up. My wreath won first prize at our local fair. I've included some close ups of different sections. The thicker rosettes are scored at 1/2" and the rest are scored at 1/4".
