Cannery Set meets Perfectly Preserved

Kay Kalthoff at Stamping to Share has a great video tutorial for this cute little jar.  My friend Nancy sent me her link and now she's on my "favorites list"!  Thanks Nancy....

Don't you just love it?  I used the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set, Cannery Set of Framelets and did the jar in Bashful Blue CS and wrapped the candy bars with Orchard Harvest DSP.  The jar was stamped with Midnight Muse and the circle cut with the Large Oval Punch.  I added some Clear Window Sheets to make the oval look like glass. The ribbon is 1/8" Taffeta.

Happy Stampin'

Birthday Time!

My sister is having a birthday, she lives down south so won't get to see her :o( but I hope my card helps her to have a very "special day"!

I used the For the Birds Stamp Set and colored with ink from markers scribbled onto a clear block using the blender pen.  The flowers were cut using Floral Frames Framelits and the larger one I ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impression Folder.  The mailbox was cut with the Decorative Label Punch.  The paper is Patio Party DSP and the ribbon is Primrose Petals Satin Stitched Ribbon.  The Daffodil Delight layer I ran through the Big Shot using the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The card base is Midnight Muse CS.

Happy Birthday Sis', Love you much ~

Ornament on Holiday Catalog

My dear friend Nancy Baladad gave me the most awesome gift, the Ornament Keepsake Bundle from the Holiday Catalog!  Not only did she give me the bundle, she stamped and cut out everything needed to make one of the ornaments like Stampin' UP! pictured on the cover.  What a sweet gesture, thanks so much Nancy.

Here's the ornament I created with the help of instructions from that I belong to by Matt & Linda Heller.

It was fun to create and would make great Christmas decorations or package decorations.  That new tulle is so pretty and so easy to work with.  I used the Scalloped Tulle Ribbon Cherry Cobbler.The button in the center is Vintage Faceted Designer Button (Large).  Nancy stamped the ornaments on Very Vanilla CS with Cherry Cobbler Ink for the smaller ones and Old Olive for the larger petals.  I used the two way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds for the bling around the edges of the leaves.  I also used Cherry Cobbler Linen Thread for the center of the Old Olive leaves.

I purchased a template from Tanya Bell at Stampting T.  That lady does such cool stuff!  Here's my version of her shoe (not even close to her expertise!)....but it was fun.  I have a co-worker/friend that loves shoes and I bought this tutorial to make her a birthday card, needless to say, a bit late ~ but hey, it's the thought that counts, right?  LOL!!!

I know she'll love it, or at least pretend she does!!!  I used Champagne Glimmer Paper for the "bling", Basic Black CS for the base of the shoe, Gray for the inside of the shoe and Birthday Wishes is from Bring On the Cake Stamp Set in Black StazOn and clear embossing powder.  The card base is Pink Pirouette CS.   Whew, glad I finally got that one done, I'm really LATE!!!!  Sorry Kerry~

The Birthday Wishes looks a bit crooked in the photo, but that's because the card opens up and the angle makes it look that way.  See:

Thanks for the inspiration Tanya and doing a tutorial for purchase that would give me the opportunity to appreciate you even more!!!

6 Year Old's Birthday Card

My good friend at work has a Grandson who turns 6 today.  He's already a die-hard Giants fan so I got him a Giants sweatshirt from our Sports Store at the mall.  Here's the card I made to go with his gift ~

It's just a little 3x3 gift card.  I used Great Sport Stamp Set for the baseballs, stamped off once and then stamped on Very Vanilla CS with Pumpkin Pie Ink and also sponged the edges with the same ink.  The Happy Birthday is from Blue Ribbon Stamp Set.  The border is Pumpkin Pie CS layered onto the Black CS base.  I used some Black Taffeta Ribbon.  The inside was computer generated.  Used my oval Scallop Circle punch and regular circle punch and the inside circle is one of the circles from the Circles #2 Sizzix die.

Hope he has an awesome 6th birthday ~ and many more....
