MONDAY MORNIN'

Hello everyone. I hope your Thanksgiving was great and that you got to spend time with family, friends, and loved ones.

The first Christmas stamp-a-stack is today so now I am working on the second set of cards for the Dec 8th stamp-a-stack.   I so wanted to use the Santa from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set with the matching Cookie Cutter Punch and some of the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  So here is what I came up with for the first card.

I used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch for the DSP behind the Santa and the 1/2" circle punch for the little candy circles, red baker's twine, and Candy Cane Lane Washi tape.  The message is actually from the Santa set last year.
Now off to stamp with the crowd.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


I missed Wednesday's post - time just got away from me.  But, I hope that your Thanksgiving is wonderful and that you are able to spend time with loved ones.

Here is a little favor I made for my family who will be sharing our dinner together on Sunday.

I used the retired Bigz Die Two Tags.  Glued two together and then embellished with Washi tape, vanilla twine, and the scarecrow from Cookie Cutter Halloween. Each one holds a mini Dove Bar.
Blessings to you on this day!

FABULOUS FRIDAY

Just a quick post today since I am at a scrapbook weekend.  Trying to get my Ireland pictures from April in a scrapbook.  It's now or never!

Here are the cards we will be making at the first Christmas stamp-a-stack on Nov 28th.  I think I posted the mice one before, but here are the others.

HUMP DAY WEDNESDAY

Product alert!

Heard yesterday from Stampin' Up that the Stitched From the Heart Framelits will go on backorder SOON due to popular demand!  They will be on "non-orderable" status beginning Nov 21st.  Stamp sets that co-ordinate are still available. 

So if you want to get these framelits before the new catalog comes out, order now by going to my Stampin' Up site listed at the top of the page or let me know and I will add to an order I am placing on Thursday, the 17th.

Here are some samples, with directions, of what you can do with the framelits.  I haven't even ordered mine yet, so I don't have a sample to show you, but I have taken several from Pinterest to entice you:

Card made by Kimberly Van Diepen of the Stampin' Up Artisan Team and an ornament created by Connie, also from the Artisan Team, and some tags made by Patty Bennett.






Don't you just love them!!?  I have GOT to get my order in also.  Order yours today.

MONDAY MONDAY

Better late than never, but I promised a post to explain the directions for the card box I posted last week.  Here is a picture of the box again and a second picture of a slightly different box I crated to save paper.
                                                      

Here are the measurements for the box on the left:
  • 2 pieces of cardstock, one cut at 10 1/2 x 4 1/2 and one at 10 1/2 x 4 1/4.  This will take two pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock or one piece of 12 x 12 piece.
  • score the 10 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece at 4 and 4 1/2
  • score the 10 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece at 1/2, 2 1/2, 3, 7 1/2, 8, 10 and at 1/2" across one long side. 
  • cut out the small square at one end of the top piece shown here and cut up on the other short score lines up to the long 1/2" score line.  Do NOT cut up on the last score line.
  • Put glue on the flaps shown below.  They are marked with white squiggles.  You should use, Tombow, Fast Fuse or the Sticky Strip so that your box stays together well.
  • Bring the sides of the box together, overlapping the edge that is glued.  Then bring the bottom flap up and adhere to the other bottom pieces.

Turn your box over and lay it at the bottom of the other piece so that the edges match.  Draw a pencil line where the top of the box will be.  Then put strong adhesive on this piece from the line down to the bottom of the cardstock piece (where my white squiggles are).  Lay your box back on and permanently attach.



  • Cut 2 pieces of DSP to decorate the front of the box.  Pieces are 4 1/4 x 3 3/4 and 4 1/4 x 3 1/2.
  • Cut a belly band 1 x 11.  Wrap around the box and glue together at the front.  The decoration that you make for the belly band will cover the glued section, so no worries that it is showing  now.
  • Make an embellishment for the belly band, fill the box with cards, and slide the belly band on to close the box.
  • The only difference I made for the second box is to change the size of the box flap so that you can get both the box and the flap out of an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock.   Both large pieces should be cut at 10 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Scoring and everything else is the same.  The one DSP piece will be slightly smaller also. 
  • Your flap will be slightly smaller than your box with these measurements, but it really doesn't look bad or show up much when it is all put together.  It is your choice. Try both and see which you like best.  It all comes down to saving a little cardstock. 
  • Here is how the box looks from the side, just to give you a different perspective.

FINALLY FRIDAY

Sorry I missed posting on Wednesday.  After election sleepiness and a bunch of stuff going on, I just didn't get it done.
I said I would post directions for the card box, but I am going to do that on Monday. Since today is Veteran's Day, I thought I would post a card in recognition of that.


I had a card base lying around that I had never finished so I just used it for this card.  the stamp set is For Our Country, now retired. It is the perfect set for this day to honor all of those who have served to keep us free!

THANK YOU VETERANS!

MONDAY MONDAY

Today's post is a card box and 5 cards that I used as a door prize at a vendor/craft show I did on Saturday.  The box can hold 5 or 6 cards, depending on the number of layers and/or embellishments that are on the cards. 

The first picture is the box and then the rest are the cards.  I used the Floral Boutique DSP from the Annual Catalog.  It has different patterns with just Night of Navy and White.  LOVE this paper.  Very classy!



 

Some of the stamp images are retired, some are current.
Come back on Wednesday and I will give you the directions for creating this cute box.

All I needed on here, I guess, was a little red so we would have had red, white, and blue as a reminder of the Tuesday Presidential Election.  Whomever you are supporting, just PLEASE get out and vote.  It is our honor and duty!

WARM & WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY

Well, it is Nov 2 and it is to be in the mid 70's today.  Wow!  Gotta love it.
And now on to my post before I head out for probably the last round of golf for the year.

This card is for part of a baby shower gift this Sunday.  I am chipping in with others for a large gift, but wanted to add something small just from me so I made 22 thank you cards for the new momma.






This is NOT a Stampin' Up stamp, but I have had it for years from when I first began to stamp.  I did use Stampin' Up Markers to color and the dots in the background are from the Awesomely Artistic set and the words are from a retired Thank You Kindly set.  I also used the retired corner punch and the current Boho Chic Embossing Folder.
The colors are neutral since the new parents do not know what their precious bundle will be.

Looking forward to attending the shower since I haven't been to one for quite a long time.
