Holiday Stamp-a-Stack

My 1st Holiday Stamp-a-Stack this holiday season, here you can see the cards that we made. Be sure to check my SU! website for future events or contact me today to schedule your own!! I would love to show you how easy it is to make those Christmas cards, or gifts that will make someone's heart melt!! Now...I'm singing- "If I can turn back time and if I could find a way..." I would have posted what we made last week!! Yikes...where does all the time go?? We made a total of 16 cards/envelopes.
We also had an ornament exchange. The catch...it had to be handmade! Here is the one I made..so easy! Click here for the tutorial. I think they turned out great! A great use for all those scrap pieces of DSP!!
Anyway, it was a blast and I am now working on cards that we will make at the next one. Be sure to check my Stampin' Up! website and click on the calendar to see scheduled events. Hope to see you at the next one!! Here are close up pictures of each card and details. Enjoy!!
Here is the ornament card made using the Sizzix large scallop circle die (113468) (Tip: fold standard A2 size card and place on top of the die revealing only 4 scallops, this will create your card and prevent the cut from going through the fold.) I think this one was my favorite, so quick and easy..my kind of card! Especially when you need to make a bunch of them! The circle was made using the clear circle die (114533) and the Merry Moments DSP (115672). Round Tab punch (108340) for the ornament top with some silver and gold cord. Stamped greetings using All Holidays stamp set (114916) Card stock: chocolate chip, real red, whisper white, very vanilla, kraft, garden green, brushed silver, brushed gold. Ink: garden green, real red. The last thing I did to the card was added the punched wholes on the scallops using the paper-piercing tool (116631).
This card is another favorite..just because it's different. I love the flat bow too made using the 5/8" grosgrain real read ribbon (109052). For the card I used a piece of very vanilla that measured 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" for the base. You then attach 2 pieces of Merry Moments DSP (115672) by using the Big Shot and Bigz XL Pennant die (113483) Tip: Cover the smaller pennant two pieces at a time alligning the DSP to the edge of the die and at the same time you will cover a full scallop which you will use as an embellishment. Created a layered piece using very vanilla and old olive CS for the inside. Fold the scallop DSP piece over the top and then I made a snowflake with the Merry Sizzlits die (116823) from the Holiday Mini Catalog and attached with a clear rhinestone brad (113144). The stamp set used was Heard from the Heart (111644) stamped in real red ink. Cute huh?? Clean and simple..yet elegant.
Now this card..is SO pretty in person! Hard to tell from the picture, but the sentiment on the front 'Peace on Earth' is stamped with the Champagne Mist shimmer paint (116806) ...so shimmery~ I just LOVE IT!
Details: very vanilla CS and the Big Shot Movers & Shapers die (114506) with the new Holiday Windows die from the Holiday Mini (116821). Tip: first you make your card and keep the dove in place. Then cut another piece of either acetate or card stock to create a stencil template. Then you can sponge the image (here I used the same shimmer paint) to see through the front of the card. I then added some real red card stock, vellum, gold brads and vanilla taffeta ribbon and done!!
This last card uses the same Champagne Mist Shimmer paint (116806)..have you guessed that I LOVE this stuff?? Here we used the Hostess Level 2 stamp set called Christmas Punch (115366)...this stamp set was also the door prize...hooray to Gloria Runkles who won it, I should have taken a picture of the gift..it was so pretty..I made a snowflake using the Texture Cuts woodsheets (116309) with the Snowflake #2 die (113460) and the real read 1" double stitched grosgrain ribbon...well..you get the picture! It was so pretty and she was very excited she won~ now back to the buckle card. Card stock: real red, whisper white, soft suede, Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP (116770) and vellum. Punches: wide oval (112082), jumbo snowflake (116628) and word window (105090). Accessories: real red and soft suede markers, gold brad, dimensionals, sponge daubers.
Please let me know if you have any questions on these projects or anything else you have seen on my blog. Hope I have helped spark some creative juices...now let them flow and get started on your holiday cards!! Be sure to check back for additional ideas and inspiration! Take care and have a great day!!

Stamp Camp goodies!

Where do I begin?? I am actually shocked that my Christmas cards are about done, do you know that last year I only sent out a few? Here this is my thing..the whole 'card making thing' and I just wasn't in the spirit! Whole different ball game this year~ I mentioned in a previous post that I am ready to put the tree up and begin decorating? I have promised myself that I will wait until Thanksgiving and probably work on it that weekend. Besides..we have had some crazy weather here lately and when it's about 70 degrees outside...snowmen decor on the front porch just doesn't look right!!
Well... enough of my babbling. Here are items that were made at my last Stamp Camp. All attendees received a cute little flask filled with M&M's. The cute little tag was made using the Tag punch (105934) and Small Tag punch (108264). Stamp set: Eat, Drink & Be Scary (111764). Added some linen thread (104199) and Pumpkin Pie grosgrain (109030) and Voila~
This card was made to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month...even though October has passed...remind the ones you love that awareness is key and early detection is vital. This card is stunning in person, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new shimmer paints (have I mentioned that I LOVE these little babies??) (Featured on pg. 27 in the Holiday Mini Catalog)Here I used Platinum (116807) and a spong dauber (102892) to apply the ink to the back of the background stamp called Tres Chic (109258) (I love this stamp too!!) The focal point is the word 'hope' which was stamped again on a scrap piece of whisper white and layered onto a scalloped oval punch (114889) of Pretty in Pink CS. The DSP is from Night & Day Specialty pack (116768) in the Holiday Mini. I love how simple black & white can be...add some color and hey..this isn't spooky at all!! Very classy and elegant..don't you think?? Dressed it up with some Pretty in Pink taffeta (109067), Whisper White fleurette (115604) and some bling clear rhinetone brad (113144).
Have you seen these pinwheel cards?? I love them because they are a great way to use up small scrap pieces..they can be used for any occasion just change out your color scheme! Click here for a great video tutorial done by BarbMullikin (love her!!) For my card I used Soft Suede for the card base layed with a piece of Sahara Sand. The pinwheel part was done using an Always Artichoke square base and Autumn Traditions DSP (115668) and added an antique brass Build-A-Brad (109108) (the second pinwheel to the left of the card was to show everyone what it looked like if you used the back side of the DSP) I like them both...yup you guessed it...I LOVE this paper too! WOW~ I am my best customer..LOL. Tied some linen thread (104199) in a bow and added stamped sentiment from Holiday Best (115364).
Last but not least a pouch that we made to hold a Cup-a-Soup packet. With flu bugs and H1N1 going around (YUCK!) who wouldn't want this cute little dog to cheer you up? This little guy is from the stamp set called Wellness Wishes (115356). Colored him in using blender pens (102845) with Creamy Caramel, Real Red and Old Olive classic ink. Accessories: silver brads (104336), dimensionals (104430)and Basic Black 5/8" grosgrain (115605).
Wait till you see what I have made for my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack...stay tuned tomorrow!! Yup~two posts in a row!! What a shocker!! Hope you all have a great day and let me know if you have any questions!

Why didn't the skeleton go out on Halloween?

He didn't have any "body" to go with!! Hee Hee!! I crack myself up sometimes...here is one more~ Whay wasn't there any food left at the monster party? Because everyone was a "goblin" it up! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays...it brings the kid out in everyone! I plan on being Jane Jetson this year for Halloween...for those that know me~it's perfect!! It was that or Miss Piggy...and Jane won the vote! Last Stamp Camp I had to postpone because so many people had sick children..or were not feeling well themselves..I hate this time of year when everyone comes down sick. You will want to put October 30th on your calendar for my regular Stamp Camp, we will be making 2 cards/envelopes and a 3-D item (Cup-a-Soup holder). Great to give to someone who could use a "Get Well Wish". So I hope now all of you are healthy and able to attend some of these events. This Sunday's Holiday Stamp-A-Stack (October 18th) you will be able to make these items: Pat & Patty (she is dressed as Dorothy this year for Halloween!) In between are Peppermint patty treats..aren't they cute?? Plus you will be able to make this Top Note Treat Box that holds a Reese's peanut butter treat (yum-yum)! PLUS these two Halloween cards/envelopes using the Twick or Tweet stamp set (116497).I love this set and the skeleton is so cute when you add googly eyes...just too funny! These cards were CASED by the 'great' Jen Sanes of www.simpleandsincere.com so be sure to check out her blog and awesome talent..sometimes the simpest cards are the best...and great to use when you need to mass produce!!


Wow!! What happened to Fall?? It feels like winter outside~ guess that's why I have been in the mood for Christmas..don't tell anyone but I have been singing Christmas carols to myself while I stamp! This Sunday I am having a Holday Stamp Camp. If you live in the area, come on by!! I will have chili and cornbread to keep your belly full while stampin'. We will be making 12 holiday cards/envelopes Cost is $25 Click here to view my Stampin' Up! website for all upcoming scheduled events. Contact today to schedule your holiday workshop with your family and friends. The above pictures are what we made at my last Stamp Camp..see you don't want to miss out on all the fun things we get to make!! The tutorial for the accordian album can be found here. I love this idea, and altered it a bit to include photos, a gift card, notes, etc. Each page has a pocket made with the DSP. Isn't it cute?? Great idea for N-O-E-L or B-A-B-Y..just change out the paper and color scheme! Contact me if you have any questions on this project or any others you see on my blog.

2 posts in one day??

Perhaps I have the H1N1...I shouldn't even joke about that!! You know I'll be coming down sick next week because I just jinxed myself. I just wanted to share what we made at my last Stamp Camp. I am actually about to post a video for this too....my second video tutorial~WOW! I hope not to sound so dull and boring!! I love these little Sweet Treat Cups (116802). You can fill them with all sorts of goodies, here I used small confetti leaves for the 'fall' season and to celebrate our local Hot Air Balloon festival. If you live locally, I highly recommend checking it out, just click the link above for more information. I haven't been up in one yet, but one day soon I hope to...this time of year would be so pretty!! Let me know if you have any questions and hope you all have a great day!

The Great Stampin' Up! Pumpkin!!

The other day I went to my friend Anne's house, she recently signed up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (hooray for Anne!!) Here is a link to her SU! website. She was hosting her first Stampin' Up! event and I went to help in anyway I could. She had mentioned to me earlier in the week that as a 'thank-you' to me...she had a gift she was working on. Low and behold as I walked up her sidewalk...this baby was glowing before my eyes!!! Can you believe it?? I love it! (Thanks Anne!!) Her husband is a dentist and used his crafty dentist tools to carve the SU! logo onto one of those craft pumpkins, underneath he carved out a hole and placed a flameless candle. My photos just don't do this little baby justice...it's stunning in real life when the sun goes down. I told her that he needs to make another one and send it to Stampin' Up! Here is a picture in my bathroom..had to try to get a shot of what it looks like in the dark!! Pretty cool huh??

It's here finally!! October 1st!! Be sure to check out Stampin' Up!'s new product My Digital Studio. It is your answer to digital paper crafting..it's not just for scrapbooking. Easy to make create not only scrapbook pages with designer templates (seriously...all you add are your pictures..you can complete a 50+ page album in a matter of minutes!) Make a DVD, calendar or 5 different sizes of cards!! What I have found helpful...is that you can simply design a card 'digitally' and when you have decided on the look that you like... make it!! Or you can create hybrid projects that have been either printed at home or by Stampin' Up! and then add certain embellishments. It is just so cool...let me know if you would like any additional information on the product. Plus...be sure to check out the 'Deal of the Week'.

An apple a day...

Happy Sunday! Wow...the weather has cooled, football is on..anybody making chilli yet? Just wanted to share with you a card I made recently and I am actually about to try my very first video tutorial, so after I upload/post it... don't laugh too hard! For those of you who know me, know that I am 'technology challenged' I can turn a computer on, check e-mail, surf the internet and that's about it!! So for me to even go out and purchase a digital camera is HUGE!! Shhh..don't tell anyone but I was still using my video camera from over 14 years ago! Just the other day..I was logged on to Stampin' Up! for a 'webinar' on the new My Digital Studio. I was just amazed that I was listening and watching a tutorial like they were in the same room as I was and teaching me on my own computer!! Speaking of 'My Digital Studio' it is just the coolest thing on the planet..besides the Sizzix Big Shot of course!! I have played quite a bit and can't wait for the print service to be up and running (soon soon soon!!) This product will be available to customers beginning October 1st. Let me know if you have any questions about it. Now back to my card. The apple that you see is actually a magnet that can be removed. I plan on packaging some of these together for teacher gifts.

Pink Flamingo Creations!!

This past Saturday I had a workshop , here were some party favors I made. I love this paper and am not ready to say 'farewell' to summer. The colors in are just so bright and cheerful!~enjoy!
Here are some easy party favors made using the Pink Flamingo DSP (113976) and the Big Shot's Scallop Circle Die (113468). You could use a variety of treats inside and here I used Snickers candy bars. This would be quick and easy as a Halloween Treat using the Cast-a-Spell DSP (115677). Wrap around treat and secure with ribbon. Yummy!!
Here's an oldie but a goodie..Post-It-Note holder: I love using coasters for so many projects. Here I covered the coaster with the same DSP and slipped some matching paper inside the barrel of the RSVP pen which was covered with clear micro-beads, added a binder clip and ribbon~ (this became the door prize). Very easy!
To the left is the hostess gift made using a class that I purchased from Andrea Walford's Demo to Demo class planning service(this was back in April 2009) called Fifth Avenue Floral. I recommend her sight/classes. Very easy to follow directions and illustrations.
These two pictures give you an idea on how the card holder opened. Isn't it cute?? I can see doing more of these over the holidays for gifts. They are so stinkin' cute!! Lastly..these were the cards that went inside. Hope you all have a great day!! ~Erin

A tisket, a tasket...a Wood Sheet Basket!!

As soon as I saw the birch Wood Sheets (116309) on pg 158 in the Idea Book & Catalog..I knew I had to have them!! Since I have now had them in my stash of un-opened goodies (shhh!!) I figured it was time to put them to use. I watched a tutorial at www.stampingschool.com where they were used to create a cute little square basket. I altered mine a bit into a rectangular shape, then to cover the inside I used some of the Bella Blue DSP (113974) and now it looks like a fabric lined basket!! The handles were made by taking a strip of 1/2" x 6" Close to Cocoa CS use either a bone folder (or scissors) and press your thumb over the CS against the bone folder and slide in an upward motion (as if you were curling ribbon). Do that to both sides and it will be break the fibers in the card stock. You then can pull it apart and ta-da...it's soft and fuzzy like suede. This techniques is also great for making projects look like flock..you can do this with any of our colors to match your project. Another tip: I colored (stained) the top wooden strip by using an Aqua Painter (103954) and here I used Soft Suede refill (115663) (but you can use any color). Squirt just a few drops into the lid and dip with the aqua pen. Hope that makes sense...be sure to check out the video and let me know if you have any questions!! Have a great day! ~Erin

8/28 Stamp Camp

I meant to post these projects earlier but with preparing the kids to go back to school and visiting with my mother time has slipped by much too quickly!!
Here are the projects we will be making this Friday 8/28/09 at my Stamp Camp (7-9 pm).
This card uses bleach on the Soft Suede CS...I love how the stamped image 'magically' turned into Crushed Curry!! I took two pictures because it was hard to see the image behind the sentiment that was stamped on vellum. Different layout too...not one of my norms or even what I had intended in the beginning!! Always funny how that happens!! I do like the finished product...and have since used this layout on some Christmas cards. When you open the card, in this case you would see the back of the Soft Suede CS..I will add a picture of the kids to send to their grandparents. Pictures of that soon...stay tuned!!
Directions for card: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" (just like a regular card) then cut off 2 1/2"..easy huh?? Then adhere the back piece (here I used 4 1/8" x 5 3/8") to the remaining front section of your card.
'Peek-A-Boo' Sweet Treat
This treat box was created using the Big Shot and the Movers & Shapers Die (114506) along with the Magnetic Movers & Shapers (115953) (love these!!) Be sure to check out http://www.dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/ for a great video tutorial...I love her ideas and she's not only inspirational but also SO uplifting..her voice and humor just crack me up!! This was so easy to make..and could easily be altered for any kind of party favor or holiday treat. Notice too how I went 'green' and used the punched out scalloped piece behind the stamped 'thank-you' from the Oval All stamp set (113790). What's that ribbon you ask?? Whisper White Organza ribbon (114319) that was stained to match the Melon Mambo CS using the Melon Mambo ink pad and stamping sponges (101610). I used velcro to seal it shut.
This last card uses the best stamp in the current catty..I call it 'da BOMB DIGGITY' of stamps!! The Medallion Stamp Set (115223) featured on page 133 in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog is Stampin' Up!'s top selling stamp set and I now see why...there are so many samples on www.splitcoaststampers.com . It's even on the front cover of our catalog. I took two pictures to show the glossy image, first I stamped in Elegant Eggplant then using the Stamp-a-ma-jig (101049) I re-stamped the image with the VersaMark pad (102283) and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. Pretty simple..just uses another step. This card we CASED from this one.
So..if you live locally be sure to contact me to attend an upcoming event..not only do we make great projects..but we have a blast! TFL and have a great day! ~Erin

First Day of School!!

Tomorrow is the first day back to school for the kids here in Frederick County, VA. I am sad that the summer is coming to an end...mostly because I LOVE the weather! If I wasn't so fair skinned and didn't burst into flames after being outside in the sun for over 10 minutes (LOL) I would be living in Miami, FL. The heat and humidity have never seemed to bother me...and I about cringe when I think of the cold weather and snow (YUCK!).
However...I do love all the holidays that will be here before you know it. The next Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog (issued Sept. 1) has gotten me even more excited to get started on upcoming fall projects and gifts for the holiday season. I have even started to make my Christmas cards!!
Here is a a treat box that I made for my childrens' teachers. It uses the Fancy Favor die (115965). I have always found inspiration on ww.splitcoaststampers.com for so many of the projects you have seen here, and this box was no exception. Be sure to check out this blog (where the idea originated from). I always like to give credit to those clever and creative stampin' souls out there. Aren't the scissors cute?? This was so easy to make..in just over an hour I made 3 of them!!! Contact me today if you have any questions on how to complete or be sure to click here to order 24/7 on my website. Hope you all have a great day!

Wings of Friendship Sampler

This is a sampler made with one of the new level 2 hostess stamp sets called Wings of Friendship (114308). I was inspired to use the colors shown since I knew I wanted to use some new DSP called Razzleberry Lemonade (115675). The card shown here to the right uses a flower from the Pretties Kit (109114). I used two sponge daubers (102892) to color the flower and then embossed entire flower with the Versamark pad (102283) and covered with Glassy Glaze Enamel (100477). Tip: while heating I put the center of the flower over the paper piercing tool (116631) so you don't burn your fingers. Does that make sense?? Let me know if you have any questions!!
I must add that I also used the Big Shot for this card...it's hard not to stamp and use Mr. Big!! This card uses the Scallop Envelope Die (113462). Stay tuned for a special I will be having during the month of August for purchasing the Stampin' Up! Big Shot (113439)....it will be worth the wait (I promise!!)
This card was made by coloring the leaves with the Creamy Caramel stampin' write marker then stamp another time using the Rich Razzleberry then again with the Crushed Curry...a pain right?? Well...Stampin' Up! has answered our prayers and now we have markers for the new 2009-2010 In Color line...now you ask why didn't I use them?? I forgot to order them!! Oops!! That will be on my next order I promise!! This card also uses the Scallop Edge punch (112091) which is part of the 'Deal of the Week' promotion. Okay...enough already...you are free to blog hop somewhere else...be inspired and stamp something today...I dare you! ~Erin

A few classes will be offered as 'To-Go' kits so let me know if you are interested in any of those.
A few things to mention...not only is July 1, 2009 when the catalog goes live, but so many things will happen!! I will be hosting an Open House with Make & Takes, door prizes, food and refreshments and it will be an opportunity to pick up your copy of the new catalog.
I will also be announcing new 'Monthly Challenges', the next 'Buying Club's will begin again, 3-D kit club will start, swaps, RAKs and so much more! So be sure to get on my mailing list to be kept up to date. Lets survive the hot summer months with these 'cool' ideas and stamp the summer away!! Contact me today if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule your own workshop with family and friends!
