Vellum Flowers for the Pals!

PPA229 angled

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  Hope you are having a wonderful day, and I’m so glad you stopped by to share a minute with me!  Even though it’s Thanksgiving, we still have a great challenge for you over at Pals Paper Arts.  Maybe you’ll have some extra time over this long weekend to play with us!  Here’s the sketch we have for you:

2014_PPA229

This sketch is so fun with the circles all over.  I just love the look of dry embossed vellum, especially on top of kraft paper.  The Lovely Lace embossing folder has some great circular flowers that work perfectly for this design.

A little Typeset DSP banner, some lace, gold ribbon, gold sequins, pearls, and to top it all off, a Cherry Cobbler rose bud made from the Spiral Flower Die!

PPA PEGGY

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing a little moment of your day with me :-)

A Different Advent Calendar!

 

Advent gold flowerIt’s almost December 1st, which means it’s time for an advent calendar!  This year I made a different kind of advent calendar ~ it’s a hanging advent calendar!Advent bags 1 on

 

Advent Fireplace

It’s made with 24 little handled bags strung on a piece of twine and attached with clothespins.  The bags are filled with candies, a fun treat for each day!

Advent Bags lined up

Each bag is stapled with the candy inside, and on the outside are the numbers of the 24 days of advent.  The numbers were printed on standard computer paper and backed with flowers punched from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack using the Blossom Punch.  The bottom of the bags are trimmed with a gold washi tape I picked up at Target when I was in there the other day :-)

Advent 3 bags

Each bag has two little slips of paper on the front, one with an Old Testament prophecy about the birth and life of Christ, and one with a New Testament verse about the fulfillment of that prophecy (if you would like a pdf of the verses, just email me).  Each day you pull off the two slips of paper and look up the verses and then eat the candy!

Advent Star envie

I bet you’re wondering what happens on the 25th ~ Christmas Day?  Well, of course that day is special!  I made this calendar for the children of my coworker, and wanted each of them to have a special gift on that day.  So, two envelopes, one for each, with gift cards inside!

Great Guy’s Birthday!

Jason's Bday closed

So, as much as I love making frilly, flowery, feminine cards, every so often I need a masculine card :-)  This is a good card for a guy, and I’ve used masculine colors and large shapes to appeal to guys.

Jason's bday part open

The card is not hard to make.  Cut your paper 8-1/2 x 5-1/2.  Score it on each side at 2-1/8.  You don’t necessarily have to add the front side panels of designer series paper, but if you want to, cut them at 5-1/4 x 2.  The birthday rectangle is 2 x 3.

Jason's bday almost open

The surprise of this card is that there’s a gift card inside ~ and it’s to Lowes!!  This particular card is for my daughter’s fiancé and I think he’s really going to like it!Jason's Bday full open

The birthday greeting is from the Big News stamp set, and the inside sentiment is from the Bravo stamp set.

DON’T FORGET!

Banner Blessings!

Banner Bless 2This is the brand new stamp set called Banner Blessings.  I LOVE IT!!  This is my first card using this stamp set ~ it’s a snap to use.  I love the little banner with the Scripture verse on it.  I stamped the image twice, once with Blackberry Bliss, the main color.  Then I stamped a second time on another piece of card stock using Mossy Meadow ink.  I cut out the verse and raised it up with dimensionals right on top of the Blackberry image.

Banner Bless angled

The pretty leaves are from a stamp in the For All Things stamp set.  FYI, I stamped off once before stamping on the card stock.  It gave the leaves a bit of a lighter look which I liked.

Banner Bless Wide

This great photopolymer stamp set is NOT in the catalog, so I’m going to give you a link to it below.  Just click the picture and it will take you right to my Stampin’ Up! shop.  You’ll want to order it while you can as it won’t be available for too long!

Starry Kraft Snowflakes!

Starry Kraft card

If you haven’t used Kraft Cardstock, you seriously have to!  It has a rustic look that’s very contemporary.  I personally love it with white.  For this card I’ve used StazOn White Ink.  The pretty stars are from a stamp that came in the November My Paper Pumpkin.  The lower section of the card is White Vellum embossed with one of the Delicate Designs Embossing Folders.  I wanted to emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder but I’m OUT!  Can you believe it?  I’ve got to order some right away.  Just picture the sentiment a little brighter and shinier :-)

Kraft Cardstock Item No. 133674

Kraft CardstockGive it a try!  I promise you’ll love it.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Beautiful Snowflakes!!

Nov PP angled

Wow!  Do you see this gorgeous card?  THIS is the November Paper Pumpkin! Look at the bright blue and white snowflake!

Nov PP slightly open

I stepped up this card a bit by adding side panels of Blackberry Bliss ~ in the next post I’ll show you the cards without the Blackberry Bliss.  Seriously though this kit comes with eight of these darling cards and eight gift tags!

Nov PP openThe kit also comes with silver striped washi tape and stamps, including a cute little stamp that makes the falling snow you see on the inside.
