Love this punch!

I cased this card out of the Holiday Mini catalogue. White base with Bashful Blue layer that I ran through the BigShot using the polkadot texturz plate. Ornaments are stamped in Old Olive, Real Red and So Saffron. Ribbon is Old Olive. One ornament (green) is on dimensionals. I also added texture to the flap of the envelope so they totally coordinate!

Double Flap Card

These cards are fun and simple yet look like you spend a lot of time on them. Got the idea from Dawn @ Dawns Stamping Thoughts. Here is a link to her video tutorial.

Love the Sparkles

I have seen a couple cards similar to this and knew that I had to try it. Love the results! These were made using the sticky pages from SU and the new ornament punch. The punch was a little tough to get thru the pages at times but it wasn't too hard. The sentiments are embossed with silver.


Punch ornament out of sticky paper
Cut ribbon or cord for the ornament to "hang" on and a tie around piece if you want one.

Remove the white backing from the ornament (sticky) and place on cardstock with the string pieces underneath

Using a cutting blade and a ruler cut strips through the orange/red sticky layer

Peel one stripe off and cover with glitter. Repeat for each strip.

You could also make this ornament using sticky strip. Just punch an ornament out of white cardstock and cut strips of sticky strip for it, trimming right at the edge of the ornament. SU has a thin sticky strip but it is also available at craft stores in a wide width.

Long Time No Post!

I can't believe it's been 2 months since my last post! Wow. Time sure flies. Just after my last one we went on a holiday and when we got home it was time for the kids to start school and I was back working full time. Needless to say I have hardly done any stamping except for a couple of workshops I have hosted. This card is from one I did in September. It is pretty much a case from one of the examples in the Holiday mini. I LOVE the new ornament punch! The background is embossed using the bigshot. We also embossed the flap of the envelope to match!
