Banner Blessings Friendship Frame

frame 1This is another project we will be creating tomorrow for my Banner Blessings Class.  You will receive the Banner Blessing Photopolymer Stamp Set, along with 4 other projects.  Please let me know if you want to RSVP at the last minute.  I have 5 openings, or 5 kits still available to sell.  If you purchase the kit, you can pick it up (if you are local) or pay an additional $5.95 to have it shipped to your home.  Please contact me and I will send you a PayPal invoice.

This is one of the easiest projects EVER……all because of our fantastic Stampin’ Up! punches.  I used SEVEN punches on this card!  You should have seen the mess on my desk, ha!  But I only used ONE stamp image and ONE stamp pad…….love how this turned out.  Lots of friends will be getting this for Christmas!  I removed the glass from the frame for this project, but you could attach the large flower on top of the glass, and still have a very nice project that is protected by glass.  Either way, it is a very inexpensive gift that just LOOKS expensive and time-consuming.  It is NOT!  I don’t have time for that in my life……and you probably don’t either!  I will send you ALL pieces including all the punch-outs to create all 5 projects if you purchase the $30 kit.

Bloom for You Card

bloom for you 2This is another card that we made this week at our monthly Club Class.  This is a single image stamp set, so it is easy on the pocketbook!  The Washi Tape and coordinating punches make this is very quick and easy card.  I look forward to using this flower for many other color combos!

Gift Box Punch Board

I’m so excited to see my Stamp Club gals tomorrow night and show them how to use the Gift Box Punch Board!  We will make this small box with a little bow at the top — and they can create either version.  I have additional samples for various sizes that I will have on display, as well.  I really believe this is a tool that you will not be disappointed in — and it has a great price-point of $19.95.  I think you will enjoy the cute little boxes you can create in many different sizes up to 4 inches on each side.

Weekly Deals and a little Easter Treat

march 18

I’m jumping on the band-wagon and trying to give you some Easter and Spring ideas moving forward.  I’ve seen several of these Easter Egg Holders, and wanted a good excuse to play with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch!

egg holder treat 1

I combined my love for the new Spiral Flower, as well!  I added some glitter in the middle of the flower while the glue from the glue gun was still hot.  I also tied it all together with a little help from the Gold Twine, and a little gold glitter on the banner sentiment…..I think it turned out ok for my first attempt.  The Spiral Flower is just so much fun — no matter what type of paper(s) you use… rocks!

egg holder treat 2

I wanted to show you a little close-up of the flower.  I used some Core’dinations paper and distressed it a little bit.  It’s a little tough to see in the photo, but it really adds some depth and dimension, particularly on the darker colors of cardstock.

Mini Coffee Cup Treats

mini coffee cups 1

You are going to love the line-up for today!  I am in love with these little coffee cups!  It has nothing to do with my love for coffee (well, maybe it does!) — these are amazing little treats for anyone and for ANY occasion!  I can’t wait to make these for all my coworkers for a little Christmas treat!  These 4 samples were made to give ideas to my club ladies tonight, but the possibilities are endless!   You will notice that our stamp images that coordinate with our punches will work best with this project to make it fast and easy.  Fill up with candy, cocoa mix, gourmet coffee, or whatever your heart desires!

To make a pattern, I disassembled one of the cups and traced it.  It worked out really nicely.  I have a PDF of the pattern, though, if you would like a copy.  CLICK HERE.

The “Holly Jolly” version gives a little glimpse of how cute a Christmas treat can look.  The “holly” punch on the right corner is NOT a Stampin’ Up! product.  I pulled it out of my stash, sorry!

mini coffee cups 3

And for the coffee lover in us all……..this one uses Rich Razzleberry and a verse from “Perfect Blend”.  These 2 items were meant to go together, don’t you think?  Punches are Boho Blossoms and the leaves from the Owl punch.

This last one uses one of my favorite Single Stamps.  When we started selling the single images, I knew that we would have some great success with them.  I love this one……perfect for anyone!  Men, too.   Notice the Chevron Ribbon is tied all the way around this one.  This type of ribbon works well because it is not silky and slippery, if that makes sense.  It has a texture to it, and seems to stay put.  I don’t recommend the satin ribbon on this project — stick with the grosgrain type, or this awesome Chevron.
