This one was made by Stacy McCain. I borrowed her idea for the striped ribbon on one of my club projets. Cute card!

Another SA Christmas swap

Saturday, November 22, 2008

This swap was done by Lisa Dallas from the SA group. I didn't realize it was a gift card holder until I took it out of the plastic envelope and it popped open. How cool is that?

I love this card made by Paula Wright. Everything just falls together so well. The photo came out kind of fuzzy, sorry Paula!

Snow Swirled Vellum - Last Stamp-A-Stack

How I wish SU would add adhesive rhinestones, as I'm in love!

Deer Friends - Another SAS

Thursday, November 13, 2008

He has a little crystal effects on his red nose - he's so sweet!

Another Stamp-A-Stack

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Sometimes, you wish things wouldn't retire, like organdy ribbon! Since I'm actually not selling product during the stack - I can use whatever I like!

Holiday Lineup - Christmas Stamp-A-Stack

This was is a CASE, although, sadly I don't remember where I saw it! Love it! I hope I made the coloring easy, just markers!

To You and Yours - Another Stamp-A-Stack card

I love this little cottage stamp. Makes me feel all cozy!

Top Note Santa - Christmas Stamp-A-Stack

Sunday, November 9, 2008

For those in my church ward, I will be posting the cards all week that we will be making this Saturday. This first one, I found made as a little gift basket. I thought it would be cute as a card.

This standad 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" card uses a lot of punches: the Big Shot Top Note Die for his face and mustache (cut right in the center of a white piece, then cut the top note piece again a few inches down) mount on a blush card base, the large oval punch for his eyes and eyelids, the 1 3/8" (mouth and eyebrows - can't really see them but they are there), 1" (nose) and 1/2" circle punches (pupils), and the scallop edge punch for the fur on his hat. The paper is whisper white, black, blush (face), pink pirouette (mouth) and riding hood red. Sponge around most of the pieces and assemble.

Rudolph Bling

One of my club girls, Kendee, made this card to swap. I love the rhinestone she used for Rudolph's nose. Fabulous!

Last Club project

Saturday, November 8, 2008

We made these ornaments oblong instead of round. It was a big hit.

These pieces were cut from a Big Shot ornament die. It's so great because it cuts 4 of the circles on one die but it will also cut 4 sheets of paper at a time so you can cut the whole ornament out in one pass!

Another Stamp Club project

Friday, November 7, 2008

So I saw this card off a fellow blogger group buddy's blog - Melissa Sauls and decided to CASE it for my stamp club. Turns out she CASE'd it too so hopefully someone will get credit for this great tone-on-tone beauty.

Big Shot felt snowflake - Stamp Club project

Thursday, November 6, 2008

Would you believe I found felt in Baja Breeze?! And the Big Shot cut through that as slick as snot - Oh my gosh, did I just say that?! (Thanks Mom). Anyway, the swoop card seemed to be such a hit so I decided to use it for one of my stamp club projects.

ETA: I'm spoiled because I live near the ProvoCraft outlet. They were selling sheets of very thick felt and they just happened to match our SU colors!

Scallop punch turkey - Gobble, gobble!

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Tonight during stamp club, we were discussing the cute peppermint patty spiders and I was going to make some Santa's off of my fellow SCS blogger friend - Twila's blog. One of my girls, Kendee, said "Wouldn't it be cute to make a turkey?" And I said, Oh my Heck, Yes! and we made one up right there on the spot. Isn't he adorable!!!?

ETA: His beak and wattle are flowers from the old Spring Bouquet Flower punch

Swappers Anonymous Christmas Swap

There is a group of SU Demos on SplitCoast Stampers with a disease. Ok, so it's just that they can't stop swapping and I'm a sad participant. But, Oh, the things they come up with - WOW! I'm going to post several of their swaps in a few days. This is the one I came up with.

Ohh, Halloween

Saturday, November 1, 2008

What a sad day for me. I've been quite sick with the flu and didn't get all our costumes finished. Jackson's was completed about 1/2 hour before his preschool party on Halloween Day. We never knew how much all our friends enjoyed our costumes as we had many say how they look forward to seeing what we come up with. I think I was the most sad of all. But Jackson had a blast!
