Rubber Duck

Made this card for someone  who needed a card for a friends baby shower.  The baby room is being done in rubber ducks.  Found this stamp in the easy event stamp set.  Since the baby is a girl I used the pink piroquette and very vanilla.  The ribbon is the seam binding in very vanilla and daffodil delight.

Christmas Box

I saw a box on the front of the Stampin Up Success book and thought I had to try to make one.  This is my attempt.  I bought the box at Hobby Lobby and then cut the paper to fit.  The top was challenging since it was not square or round.  The monthly group that comes to my house will be attempting to make these this month.  Hopefully they will enjoy.

Glitter Christmas Tags

Here are some simple christmas tags.  I used olive green cardstock and cherry cobbler.   Stamp set used is Christmas Punch.

Christmas Tags

Our stamping group made these tags not to long ago.  I loved they way they came out and they were easy to make.

These tags were made using the two tag big shot die cut from Stamping up.  The stamps were  from the Polar Party stamp set.  The season greetings was from the Snow Swirled set.

Peace and Joy

It is time for me to get ready for my stamping group.  I have been trying to use some of the supplies that I have in my room.  I get things and then don't use everything.  Here is one of the cards we will be making at our next gathering.

I couldn't decide if I like this card so I sat it on the Mantel to see how it would look from a distance.  It looked really nice with the light hitting it from a different angle.  This card was made using the shimmer white paper, pink pirquette and beau chateau designer paper.  The Ornament is a punch using the glimmer paper.  Before I cut out the ornament I punched out a 1" circle.  I then used the ornament punch and made sure the circle was in the middle of the ornament punch.  Stampin Up has a product called a shaker frame.  I used the third one from the center which fit perfect on the back of the ornament punch.  The frames give you a pocket to put beads or crystals.  I used the 1" circle piece that was punch out when I cut the first circle and put it on top of the shaker frame as the back of the circle.  Before removing putting the ornament on the card I filled with a few loose beads I had that I got at a craft store.  The Peace and Joy was part of a Stampin up decorative strip that I bought from the clearance rack.

Jolly Christmas Card

It should be no surprise for those that know me that Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  I have made several Christmas cards already and have more that I would like to make before Christmas.  Slowly, I am getting those Christmas cards posted.   The Glimmer paper by stampin up has become my favorites , it just makes the cards look so pretty.  I say a card done by Mary Brown on splitcoaststampers and had to make something similar.   The card below uses speciality papers and stamps from the Holiday Mini.

This card was made using the Festive and Fun stamp.  The card is a 5.25 x 5.25 using the real red card stock.  The other paper used is the Holly Berry Bouquet Designer paper.  The red dots are a glossy red which really stands out when you can see it in person.  The green is Certainly celery and then of course the glimmer paper.
