This is a clock I made for the Seaside Crafters Group. I embossed and brayered the CD and stamped Lovely As a Tree (127795) using Stazon Ink. If you have not purchased that stamp, I suggest you do...it will be a Stampin' Up Classic! Great addition to your craft room/area and makes a super gift.
This works great using the printable CD's and you can also get ones you can light scribe using your computer DVD player (new DVD players)
This neat Halloween card was done using the Frightening Feline 128105 and cut out with the Window Frame Framelits matted with Basic Black and Basic Gray cardstock. The Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Paper was printed from My Digital Studio 2+ (126906 - Item # incase you don't have MDS). Base card was Pumpkin Pie matted with Basic Black and Basic Gray accented using the new Basic Gray Satin Stripped ribbon 127837; buttons non-SU. The background was embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.
I know it seems a bit early but it will be here before you know it! then Thanksgiving and Christmas all too soon. So let's get stampin'
This cute little Santa was inspired by one Valita make for her blog (Valita's Fresh Folds)! He is so cute and I really enjoyed using all that glitter. He is such a fun Santa! Hers was a little different but I did the best I could. He's still CUTE! He's a tall drink of water so he fits a #10 Business Envelope!
Playing with MDS 2+ I printed the paper for this Toxic Treat Box as well as the Witch from Toxic Treats! The catalog item #'s (in case you don't use MDS) Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP 126906 - Toxic Treat Stamp Set 127901.
I cut the box from Fancy Favor Bigz Die 115965 and used the 2nd Labels Framelit 125598 to cut the opening for the vellum printed Witch! You can fill the box with treats or a battery operated tea light. The treats are all tied up using the nfew 1/2" Strip Satin Ribbon! Too cute!

This week's challenge is one that really hits
home for me. Like many others, I am a craft product HOARDER! I order stuff because
it's sooo cute or sooo pretty, and then I never open it because I don't want to
use it all up and not have it when the "perfect project" comes along.
So this week, that EXACTLY what we challenge you to do! Go get that
sparkly paper, or those expensive buttons, or the super cute ribbon you ordered
and now haven't used. It's time to use it!
You know the drill: cards, scrapbook
pages, altered items, MDS projects, or anything else you can think of is ALWAYS
Need some inspiration? Check out the
design team's samples HERE.
Then when you get your project created, upload
it HERE so we can all see your fabulous work!
DON'T FORGET! WE CHOOSE A WINNER AT THE
END OF EACH WEEK, AND THAT PERSON'S PROJECT WILL BE FEATURED ON THE GROUP
HOMEPAGE FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEK! WE'D LOVE TO SHOW OFF YOUR WORK-BUT YOU
HAVE TO PLAY TO BE FEATURED!
I saw this cute flower somewhere and I lost the blog address ... it was made from the Tag Punch and I used the Petite Tag Punch that is now retired! The base card is Calypso Coral with a hint of Island Indigo. International Bazaar is the DSP under the flower (126920). I used InColor DSP (122384) for the flower and sentiment from Wacky Wishes (hostess - 126412). Apothacary Accents Framelit 127003 was used to cut out and frame the sentiment!
Next time I should have stamped the Happy Birthday in Island Indigo.
These little plastic push pop containers seem to be the going thing! My cyber friend, Regina at Workin' out the Inks blog, made this Ssanta push pop! I made one for your Halloween treats! I wanted to share both our 'creations' with you. They are great for craft fairs, school treats, party treats and can be used over and over!
Today's Technique Junkie Try that Technique Thursday features the Block-Collage Technique featured in the February/March 2009 Newsletter. It is such a lovely technique and really makes your focal point 'pop'!
Come play along - check it out on Technique Junkies Blogspot! The winner's entry will be posted on the Technique Junkie Group Homepage.
What a great way to welcome 'Family' at Thanksgiving! These letters were part of an experiment from Seaside Crafters and I thought I would share them on my blog. They make a good Thanksgiving Centerpiece for the middle of your table or your buffet sidebar.
I love the Orchard Harvest DSP 126895, Cannery Set Framelits 127822 and Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set 126692; it just matches so well. AND Stampin' Up hit a homerun by bundling the Framlit & Stamp Set at a big savings - 129944. Hope you like it and these products can be found on Page 29 of the Occasions Mini Catalog!
Since I did not post much last week I thought I would share this with you.
Every month Technique Junkies has a Just One Swap and this month I was fortunate enough to be partnered with Denise Taylor from New Zealand! She sent me this beautiful card made using the "embossed puzzle" technique featured in the August/September 2012 Technique Junkie Newsletter. If you have never investigated this fabulous blog and considered joining, please go HERE and check it out. Thank you, Denise for such a lovely card.
This was for LAST week's Late Night Stampers Challenge. I shared on the message board but neglected to post to my blog. The challenge was to make anything 'Back to School'. This is a notebook covered for your notes or just a journal of your school year!
Inspiration can come from anywhere! A friend of mine brought me this catalog ad because it inspired her. So the card I made was inspired by the ad! I love the color combo of Early Expresso and Baja Breeze with a touch of Very Vanilla. The 'weeds' were embossed with white embossing powder and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes 127802 (I love that set and a must have for any stamper) Butterflies brought to you by Stampin' Up's Beautiful Wings Sizzlit 118138.
I am sorry I have not posted much this week but LIFE has gotten in the way! I hope to do a little better. Stop by often and get stampin'!
This is a printers tray painted black and decorated with the Stampin' Up Storytime 126907 Designer paper which was a PERFECT fit. I made this for my grandson who is not in school yet but will be one day and it is a great way to display events, occasions and special times at school. Back to School is the Challenge 186 for this week at Late Night Stampers.
I used little wooden books, punchies, and lots of 3D items. Enjoy!
Need an odd size envelope? I ran across this neat video by Mike Funke (and YES he is a Stampin' Up Demo) that explains how to make an envelope to fit almost any card you have! Enjoy and visit Mike's Blog for other videos and he does some really great cards!
Another treat made using your old button & brad containers from Stampin' Up. I made this one for Christmas to give all your kids (and adults)! Just drill a small hole in the side of the container, insert a Wilton Candy stick and put a 'blog' of hot glue on the inside to secure the stick and VOILA' perfect for filling with Christmas goodies!
Your 2 1/2" circle punch (120906) is a perfect fit and then build your decoration from there. Add some ribbon for accent and there you have it, such a neat treat! I just love the new SU sweater trim!
Mittens, mittens...whose got the mittens? Love the new mitten punch by Stampin' Up and the new tablet style Designer Paper. I know SU listens to its customers. I have had ladies ask for the tablet style paper for a long time! I also used the new Core'dinations paper and then rubbed it with Cherry Cobbler to make it pop!

I had to try out the new Core'dinations Card Stock. I used Early Expresso 127848 with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder 127821! The Owl Builder Punch 118074 created the cute little owl inside the tree! The Daffodil Delight cardstock just accents the whole card.

I was inspired by a page I saw on Amy Celona's blog. She posted tons of convention pictures so if you did not go to convention you can browse all the photos for inspiration! Come play along!
Create a card, scrapbook page, 3 D item,
or any other idea you can come up with using an idea from the 2012 Convention.
If you weren't able to attend this year, then CASE something from someone's
blog who DID attend! I'm sure you've already seen TONS of samples and pictures
of display boards.
I just love this 12 x 12 Page and the pictures go inside the flower punches!

After seeing this on Becky Robert's Inking Idaho blog, I had to CASE it... what a great idea! Use your empty brad and button boxes from Stampin' Up and drill a hole to put a Wilton Lollipop stick (securing with hot glue). What a super Halloween treat!
