Fall Card

This is a card that my upline Lynn Larson made for her swap for our meeting. You can't tell in the picture, but she accented the tree with a gold pen. It came out nice.

I just love this stamp set. It was one of my favorites from the new catalog. I made this card for my downline meeting swap. Everyone like it.

Isn't this the cutest thing you ever seen, or at least today anyways. I made this at my upline's Lynn Larson house. I was there for a downline meeting doing a little stamping, swapping and sharing.

Anyways we made these use the big shot and the top note die. You die cut the green galore and the lovely lilac together. You cut the lovely lilac to make hair. Add some punches an whoaloa. It's pretty easy to make, but the big shot is a must. I have to tell you the big shot is on the very top of my wish list.

Guess what, now you can order your favorite Stampin Up products from the comfort of your own home online. Just go to my SU website here to place your order today.

Okay it's not a Stampin Up stamp, but.............

I like it a lot. I have a lot of hunter's in my family, so I'm always in the search for deer stamps. This is made by Northwoods Rubber Stamp, INC. Everything else on the card is Stampin Up. The cs colors are garden green, creamy carmel, close to cocoa and very vanilla. The pattern paper is prestwick disgner paper. I also used some of this paper on the uder the stars card. I used some choc chip ribbon and some retired hodgepodge hardware. This is going to be my dad's birthday card. Happy Stamping everyone.

Swap Card

I made this card for a swap I sign up for. I made another card too, but I forgot to take a picture before I mailed them, silly me. Anyways I used garden green and night of navy cs and some of the new pattern paper. This card uses the under the stars stamp set from the new catalog thats actually on sale right now. I punch out the stamp images with the 1 3/8 and matted on the 1 3/4 and drew some stitching with the white gel pen. Don't you love that pen.

Framed Scrapbook

I made this framed scrapbook and entered in the local fair craft and hobbies exhibit and won first prize in the paper crafts section(yeah). I painted the frame brown and let it dry then painted a clear crackle medium over the brown and let it dry. I painted a light blue over that and it crackled. I thought it came out pretty cool. The frame took the longest to finish just waiting for the paint to dry. When the frame was finished I strung two wires from side to side and just hook them to the square things that hold the glass in the frame. I cut 6 4 1/2" squares and set an eyelet in each one. I strung through the eyelet and wrapped that piece of wire around wire attached to the frame. By the way I used the Happy Camper stamp set from Stampin Up that retired this year. I got this idea from a paper crafts magazine and made it with using stampin up. Also this frame is used with out the glass. I pick it up at a local thrift store for $2.00.

Baby Gift Bag

I made this gift bag for my husband's cousin who just had a brand new baby girl. I saw this idea in one of the convention photos. I decorated the front with the new pink and pretty in pink soild card stock. I punch out circles and used crystal effects to attach the circle punch out to the clear buttons. I used the new scallop punch down the front. And on the top big half circle I punch out sm ovals and cut them in half and adhered to the back. I thought it came out cute, what do ya think?
