I figured out how to make the piano so it fits a regular envelope. It is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4! I used reinkers to dye the flowers, fabric leaves and a doily I cut from the Delicate Doilies Die126999. I made the matching envelope with music notes sponged on it. This card can be used for lots of occasions.
...Door Knob Hangers! I found a full package of these and am trying to make things out of them. I used the little Bird Builder 117191 punch and stamp for accent on the window I cut using the Apothecary Framelit 127003. The Gumball Green Core'dinations 127847 paper was perfect for the little roof (embossed with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder 127821) and I filled it with Nature's Harvest Trail Mix (for people)! It makes a cute little gift for any occasion.
The Kindness Matters122902 stamp adorned the butterfly and made up the sentiment! I punched it using the Oval Punch 119855 and the Scallop Oval Punch 119856 and tied it off with a piece of Hemp.
Don't you just love this technique? This one is so cheerful and peaceful and I LOVE IT!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend... now let's stamp!
This is another sample of the Technique Junkie Puzzle Layer Technique from the October 2010 TJ Newsletter. You can order past CD's with a 'gi-normous' amount of knowledge on them! CLICK HERE to go to the website and check it out; great samples as well!.
I was trying out my Silhouette and found this .svg file online and had to try it... It reminds me of one Liberachi's Pianos (boy that dates me, huh?)! The Silhouette will do lots of things especially using MDS but it's another learning curve!
This is one of the cards we made at our Punchie class the other day. You use 8 of the tag punches to create this lovely flower. The base is Cameo Coral with an Indigo Blue mat under a piece of International Bazzar 126920. I used the Chevron Embossing Folder 127749 for the background. Don't you love the folders, they add so much dimension to a card!
I was able to mat the Apothecary Framelit 127003 using 2 cuts and piecing it around the top and sides. You can mat most any of the frames that way!
The Blossom Petals Builder Punch 121808 makes up the leaves of this 'mistletoe'! Sentiment was printed on my computer. I used the Confetti White Paper with an accent strip of International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (126920) matted on Chocolate Chip. Pearls for berries and Baker's Twine sets off the hanging mistletoe (Wild Wasabi). Enjoy!
You still have time to play along. My card today is white-on-white. These type cards are so classy yet so simple. Lets see what ya got!
Clean and simple - lots of white space
This week we want you to create a card, scrapbook page, 3D project or anything
else you can think of that fits the clean and simple concept and has lots of
white space. There should be lots of cards in our folder this week as this is
an easy one for you.

Once you get your creation completed, you can upload it HERE
We are looking forward to lots of photos in our album.
I was inspired after viewing Patty Bennett's Blog and the note pad holders they had made using MDS (My Design Studio) software. I would really love to play with it more but I seem to be having an issue with margins and printing directly from the MDS program. Practice, Practice, Practice!
Anywhooooo... it turned out ok and would make a great gift for someone in the office, your downline, any hostess or customer! This uses the Clear Cases on Page 7 in the Stampin' Up catalog and the calendar was printed from My Design Studio. I am not sure this post went out... sure hope so.
Christmas will be here before you realize it! I love this twisted card! It fits a standard A2 envelope and can be decorated so many ways. I used the Beautiful Season Stamp Set 122682 for all the sentiments and to decorate the envelope.
I am not sure why two scans can change to colors so drastically! Sorry I have been slow in posting. This month seems to be flying by!
The base is Cherry Cobbler and the front is glued shut and I used Old Olive. The Designer Paper is discontinued so you can use any papers you choose. LOL the money is fake! These cards are so fun and such a super way to give a money gift or a gift card.
Still time to play along - scary - spooky - and some Halloween FUN!
This week we want you to create any card, scrapbook page, 3D item, or anything
else you can think of that would showcase "Trick-or-Treat SpQQktacular-
silly or spooky, let's see your Halloween tricks and treats!"

This super scarecrow card I saw on someone's blog and for the life of me I can't remember who. I think it was on Mary Fish's blog! He would also make a great addition to a Fall scrapbook page!
Top Note Ghost - We made this card at our punchie class. He made a great card as well; easy, peasy!
We're looking forward to seeing your creations.
I have been sorta MIA since I had to work all week - I retired five years ago but I still fill in for vacationing personnel! It was really strange working all week... interfered with my 'play' time!
