Sept 2016 Card Class

I am a little late posting this (ya.... only a week!) Can you see me rollling my eyes yet??? LOL! I have the most wonderful ladies that attend my classes every month. I always say that I've made such great friends just by doing what I love and it's true!

Paper Pumpkin has a BOGO thru October 10th. It's a great way to get started crafting - everything you need wrapped up in a little orange box delivered to your mailbox. You don't even have to get out of your PJs!

Below, Candy, Cass & Jen work diligently on their projects. 

Paulette, Angie & Rita are focusing just as hard :) 

If you're close to the Hennepin, IL area, we'd love for you to join us. Next class is Tuesday November 8th. If you would like to place an order and don't have a demonstrator, please contact me!

Happy Stamping!

Stalled Rudolph

This is a card I designed and made for a challenge last month. Being a horse person, I know a little bit about stalls. It only seemed fitting that I built one for Rudolph ;) I'm just glad I don't have to muck Rudy's stall too! LOL

 I started by using the Hardwood background stamp on Sahara Sand CS. I cut the boards for his stall door, created a box with and x in the center and propped it up on some dimensionals. I stamped Rudy from the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle & heat embossed his nose with our new red glitter embossing powder after punching him out. I punched the sign from the decorative label punch and used the labeler alphabet stamps to spell out his name. I propped my stall front up on the Warmth & Cheer DSP. 

 The ridges on the stall topper were made with the Best Badge Punch. Then the topper was propped up with several dimensionals stacked on top of each other. I intertwined Kraft Rope Trim & Candy Cane Lane twine with a gingerbread Christmas Trinket and glued it to the stall door for a handle.
I am loving this new holiday catalog! If you don't have a demonstrator and need a catalog, please let me know. I'd love to be your demo! :)

I hope you enjoyed today's card share.

Happy Stamping!

Another Stinker!

This card just makes me laugh! It was CASEd from Frenchy here.

I have yet to make an actual fox with the new Fox Builder Punch. The skunks just go so well with the sentiment from the Here For You stamp set :)

I used the Black Stampin Write marker to color the skunk after I punched him out on Whisper White card stock. That was the hardest part! This card was super easy to make and took no time at all to put together. I wanted to add some bling so I punched 4 tiny circles out of my Red Glimmer paper. I love the little zing that gave this card. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Happy Stamping! :)

Thoughtful Branches Pumpkin

In light of the fact that Stampin' Up! still has the Thoughtful Branches bundle available, I thought I'd share the card I made yesterday. Its my Thoughtful Branches pumpkin.

I cut it out using our Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper. Isn't it cute?! I used the Vintage leaves stamp set to create the background and the Layering Oval Framelits for my sentiment. The sentiment was put together with the Labeler Alphabet stamps
