Friends 24-7 card

Morning stampers! Welcome to my blog! I wanted to share this card for a very long time with you all, and my exciting news!!! Only I missed placed it and finally found it! Stampin' Up! has a gallery just for there demos to send cards into and then if your card is picked they showcase it on there gallery!!! My card got picked!!!! Wooo Hooooo
 
I used two stamp sets for my card I used Friends 24-7 item #113218 and Baroque Background Stamp (this is retired) My base is Mellow Moss card stock, I stamped the Baroque Background with Mellow Moss ink and stamped it onto the card stock. I took the scroll from Friends 24-7 and stamped that in Chocolate Chip ink. I cut a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock and used the Eyelet Border punch on one side of it. Then I took some Mellow Moss Taffeta ribbon and ran that over the top of it and placed it off to the left side of the card.

Next I cut a strip of Natural Ivory card stock and used the eyelet border punch on one side. I took the Friends saying from Friends 24-7 stamp set and stamped that in Sahara Sand randomly all over, then took the scroll from the same set inked it up in Mellow Moss and stamped that randomly. I took a sponge dauber and sponged the edges with Chocolate chip ink. I stamped the bird from Friends 24-7 in Chocolate Chip ink on Naturally Ivory paper and then sponged the edges with Chocolate chip ink. I layered it on Mellow Moss then Chocolate chip and taped it to the Natural Ivory piece.
 
I stamped 24-7 in Chocolate Chip ink on Natural Ivory card stock and punched it out with the small oval punch, then sponged the edge with Chocolate Chip ink. I punched out a piece of Mellow Moss with the Large Oval Punch, and then a piece of Chocolate Chip with the Scallop Oval Punch. I placed it on a dimensional on the card. I love how this card turned out! This stamp set is one of my favorite sets!!!

Monday's 3D Challenge usinging From The Crypt

Morning and welcome to my blog! I know, I know I have been missing in action. Our house got hit with some nasty germs. Dh and I both have been pretty sick this last week, and I sure didn't have an mojo at all to do anything, but run the remote :)
 
Today's share is the 3-D challenge I posted over on the Stampin' Addicts site! Click on the link if you would like to visit this awesome site!
http://www.stampinaddicts.com/Head on over there is a lot of different challenges posted each week!!! If your a demo be sure to sign up for the demo forums too! The challenge was to make a bag from an Envelope!! I love how this one turned out! I received one last year from one of my adopted down line Amy and just loved it! It was a lot of fun to make!! These are great for anytime of the year, Halloween, Christmas, Valentines, B-days well you get the point :)
 
I used 2 stamp sets for this project. I used From The Crypt item #115460 and Teeny Tiny Wishes item # 115370. I took an envelope that measured 4 1/2" x 5 3/4", I taped down the flap then scored 1/2" in on each long side. Then I scored 1/2" on one of the short sides. The other short end I cut 1/4" off. Then folded the envelope into a bag. I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to fit the envelope and a piece of our DSP Cast-a-Spell, I sponged the edges with Old Olive classic ink. On the bottom I ran a piece of 1/4 pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon. I stamped Happy Halloween from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Set in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock and then punched it out with the modern label punch. I took the spider out of the From the Crypt stamp set and stamped the legs in Basic Black around the edges. Then sponged the edges with Old Olive ink. I placed dimensionals on the back and popped it up.
 
I stamped the Skull out of the From the Crypt Stamp Set in Versa Mark Ink and poured Black embossing powder over it. Then heat set it. I sponged the edge with Old Olive ink. I layered it on Basic Black then Pumpkin Pie card stock. I placed dimensionals on the back and put it on the front of my bag. At the top I took the double rectangle punch and punched through the layers. Then I thread the 1/4 eggplant grosgrain ribbon through. In the center I placed a build-a-brad. (more details on that below) And bam! I created a cute little bag for Halloween! You can too! I have also added a tutorial video below for you too! Easy to make!

I took the Skull image in Basic Black ink and stamped it on Whisper White card stock. Then where the bats our at on the left hand side I punched them out with the 1/2 circle punch.

Christmas Share using Snow Swirled

Hello stampers! Welcome to my blog! I didn't get the video done for yesterday's tutorial it is raining here. Its very dark and I know some people complained last time that the video was too dark the last time it rained so I am waiting until the cloudiness goes away but we really needed the rain bad.
 
The card I am sharing with you all today is a card I did for another swap that I was in. I used two stamp sets for this creation. I used Snow Swirled item #111690 and Teeny Tiny Wishes item #115370. The base of my card is Dusty Durango, then Chocolate Chip. I cut a piece of Bashful Blue card stock and took the snowflake from the Snow Swirled stamp set and inked it up in Bashful Blue ink, and stamped randomly all over. I sponged the edges with Bashful Blue ink. I took a piece of Dusty Durango Print Patterns Designer Paper cut it to fit the Bashful Blue card stock then took the Eyelet Border Punch to it. I then took a piece of 1/2 polka-dot Dusty Durango grosgrain ribbon and wrapped it around the Bashful Blue card stock about half ways down.
 
Using the Word Window Punch I punched out a piece in Old Olive and folded it in half to go over the Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip card stock. Then I placed a clear rhinestone brad in the end. I took the Tree from the Snow Swirled set and stamped it in Old Olive ink on the Whisper White Card stock. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the little snowflakes in Bashful Blue ink on Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch. I add glitter to the center of all the snowflakes. Then the 3 Bashful Blue ones I placed dimensionals on the back and popped them up off the tree. I cut a piece of Old Olive card stock to go behind the Whisper White, I sponged the edges with Old Olive ink. I took the Merry Christmas from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White card stock punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then sponged the edges with Dusty Durango classic ink. I placed a dimensional behind that to pop it up off the card. I love how it turned out and just love the Snow Swirled stamp set! The colors are not traditional colors but I love how well they go together!

Card Halloween Frights and Sanded Background Stamps

Morning! Welcome to my blog :) Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I over slept. Of course yesterday was a day that I had a cleaning job so I rushed around the house like a chicken with its head cut off to get to my client's home in time. Up on my arrival my customer greets me at the door and says I am soo glad your here! I want you to clean everything today. So that meant a job that takes a few hours normally took me most of the day. That was more than ok because that meant more money to buy stamps :) Then I rushed home in time to help dh finish up working on a section of our siding and head to town and clean another job. What a day I tell ya! I am so grateful to who ever invented coffee!! I did however manage to make this card last night :)

I used two stamp sets to create this card. I used Halloween Frights item #111766 and Sanded Background item #109294. My base is Basic Black card stock, then Old Olive card stock which I sponged the edges with Old Olive classic ink. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White took the Sanded Background stamp and stamped it in Basic Black. I sponged the edges with Basic Black ink. I placed two vintage brads in the upper right hand corner. I cut a strip of Designer Series Paper called Cast-A-Spell, (this paper is awesome), I roughed up the bottom edge with the cutter kit and then across the top I ran 1/2 Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon. I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the scary cat from Halloween Frights stamp set in Basic Black ink and sponged the edges with Basic Black ink. I then layered it on Old Olive and Basic Black card stock. I placed dimensionals on the back and set it on the card.

For my little greeting I stamped Halloween Frights in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock. I punched it out with the Modern Label Punch. I ran the Magnetic Movers and Shapers through my Big Shot and a piece of Old Olive card stock to cut out a bigger Modern Label punch to place behind the white one. Next I took the Wide Oval Punch and punched out a piece of Basic Black card stock. Then layered them all together, placed a dimensional on the back and set it in the lower right hand corner.

Tip for the day When placing more than one brad use your Mat Pack and Paper Piercer to get them evenly spaced and lined up! It makes it soo much easier!!
