Vertical Greetings and Wood Textures DSP Stack





Hello Hivers, 

I seen this card on Pinterest and had to CASE it.  I love the look of the logs peeking out.  I used the Vertical Greetings stamp set for the sentiment and the Seasonal Layers thinlits to add a little sparkle with Gold Foil Sheets.  

Enjoy your day.

Paper Pumpkin October 2017 with Video



Hello Hivers, 

OMG!  This months Paper Pumpkin Kit is super cute.  I love shaker cards.  I couldn't wait to open up my kit and get started on the projects.  The coordinating colors for this kit are:  Basic Black, Old Olive, and Pool Party.  The Classic Stampin' Spot is in Cherry Cobbler.  This color combination looks lovely together.  

I can't wait to see what Novembers Kit will be...remember there is going to be some coordination with this months and next months Paper Pumpkin Kits.  I'm so excited.  

Here's a video for you to enjoy.





Here are the two cards I made from the video.

Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape



Hello Hivers, 

 OMG!  I am in love with this card.  I don't usually purchase washi tape because I never really use it.  When I seen this tape I just had to have it.  I used the washi tape to make "DSP" for this card.  I heat embossed the sentiment using Copper Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is from the Festive Phrases stamp set.  The inside sentiment is from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  





As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today.

The Little Things - Big Box





Hello Hivers, 

I was having a play with the Envelope Punch Board.  I was trying to make a box using 12" x 12" paper.    Well, I did it.  It wasn't easy.  I made three different boxes, using different measurements for all of them.  Now I can't remember which measurements go with which box.  

I think I made this one using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool with the retired Diagonal Plate. Scoring on all sides at 3-1/8" and 8.25".  It turned out nice enough, but it is not what I was going for. 

 I decorated the box using The Little Things stamp set along with some retired Black Glimmer Paper and other embellishments.  I love the Spooky Night DSP.  It works for so many occasions.  

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Watercolor Christmas with Year of Cheer




Hello Hivers, 

Here is a simple and non-traditonal Christmas card.  I colored the Year of Cheer SDSP with Melon Mambo ink.  I used the Seasonal Layers thinlits to get the scallops on the side. I love the look of the big and small circles together.

Count My Blessings - Thinking of You




Hello Hivers, 

The Count My Blessings stamp set is one of my favorite in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  I have made several cards using this stamp set.  I realized that I had never used the acorn image.  I searched Pinterest for a card sketch and this is what I produced.  I love it.  You can't really see it, but I used Wink of Stella to color the images.

Wood Textures DSP Stack - Thank You





Hello Hivers, 


I seen this card on Pinterest.  I just had to CASE it.  

During the recent Hurricane (Irma), we had a few people reach out to our family and help us when we needed it.  This is one of the cards I made to say Thank You.

The card is so simple but it is very striking.

Festive Phrases Gum Ball Box
















Hello Hivers, 


 I made this cute little box to hold some gum balls.  I decorated it with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  I added a little window,  so that you could see what's inside the box, using the Hearth & Home thinlits.  The sentiment is from the Festive Phrases stamp set in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

Snowflake Sentiments


Hello Hivers,

Half Full - White Christmas




Hello Hivers, 

Here is my first creation using the Half Full stamp set.  I love all the sentiments in this set.  

I have paired the stamp set with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and some Silver Foil paper.  

The inside is the "wow" factor of this card, in my opinion.  You don't expect to open up this card and see all that bright red.  But, I love it.

Christmas Around the World - Chocolate Box







Hello Hivers, 

I love Stampin' Up! products.  They are so versatile.  When I seen the Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper in the 2017 Holiday Catalog...I wasn't to impressed.  After watching videos showing the paper (both sides), I just had to have it.  I don't care for some of the paper in this pack, however, if you turn the sheet over there is a different design and I love it.  

There was no stamping involved in the making of this project.  The sentiment was cut out of one of the sheets of DSP.  Oh, and those Foil Snowflakes are to die for.  They add such a touch of elegance to any project.  I also used the Gold Mini Sequin Trim and the Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to complete this box.


I found the tutorial for this box on Pinterest, courtesy of Sam Hammond a.k.a. Pootles.












This is the candy that fits inside the box.  You can choose whatever you can find to fit inside.  It is pretty roomy in there.

Painted Autumn Suite - Sunflowers




Hello Hivers, 

Okay. This card just makes me happy.   The bright colors in the DSP are just gorgeous.  

I used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry to create the flower on the Stitched Circle and I added a Gold Faceted Gem for some sparkle.  

Oh, did you notice the little swirly doodad on top of the Burlap ribbon?  That came from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies.

Painted Autumn Suite - Your Kindness



Hello Hivers, 

Today I decided to use a couple of the items in the Painted Autumn Suite.  Here I have used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Painted Harvest stamp set.  

The color combination for the flower is Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.  The middle is stamped in Soft Suede ink.  

I don't know which card I prefer best...the Cajun Craze base or the Soft Suede base.  I think I am leaning towards the Cajun Craze.

I decided to make a little box to hold some coffee flavored candy.  I found the tutorial on Pinterest for the box.  I can't remember who the originator is.  

I used the Coffee Break Suite of products to decorate with.  I added one element from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.
