Thankful feathers…

 There is some fantastic inspiration in the Catalogs and today’s card comes from an idea that I found on pg 42 of the Holiday Catalog…

It features a card made using the fantastic Feathers Framelits Dies along with different materials & textures and I decided to follow this idea, change a few things and make one of my own…

And here it is…this is a card that all customers who place an order with me this week are going to be receiving in their mailboxes as a thank you…

feathers-framelits-card

Isn’t that just beautiful?  I love the color combination (esp the infusion of blue!) and the use of different textures including Washi Tape…Washi Tape you ask?  Yup…one of those feathers is created using Washi Tape!

The card base…is Whisper White onto which I layered a piece of Crumb Cake that has the wood effect stamped onto it using Crumb Cake ink and the fabulous background stamp called Hardwood (pg 175).

The feathers…aren’t they awesome?  The yellow & white striped one is made simply by sticking Washi Tape from Color Me Autumn (pg 41 Holiday Catalog) diagonally onto a piece of white cardstock and then die cutting it using one of the feather dies featured in Feathers Framelits Dies (pg 42 Holiday Catalog) – easy and what a fun way to use washi!

The sparkly feather is made using Champagne Glimmer Paper (pg 193) and the blue & white one is made using a piece of paper from All is Calm DSP (pg 22 Holiday Catalog)…

feathers-framelits-closeup

They were attached to a white layer using Dimensionals and you will see that the top edge of that layer has been shaped using the fabulous Spiral Border Punch (pg 222).

The sentiment…is a stamp from Good Greetings which is a Hostess set that you can get for FREE through October 31st – GIVING YOU JUST TWO MORE DAYS TO GET IT – FOR FREE!

In two days time this fabulous set of 19 sentiments will be gone for good – how do you get yours?  You get it for FREE on orders of $300+ (on top of your regular Hostess Rewards!) – combine orders with a friend or two and get your set for free!  Click HERE to view the sentiments in it!

I cut out my sentiment using a die from Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits (pg 188) and love how this tag looks…

feathers-framelits-tag

The finishing touch…I wanted to add a gold button but don’t have any left…hmmm…and so I decided to make one using Brushed Gold Paper (pg 193) and two circle punches…

Simply use the 1/16″ Handheld Circle Punch to make two holes…

gold-button-1

And then position a 1/2″ Circle Punch over them and punch 0ut!

gold-button-2

I then added a bow using White Bakers Twine (pg 206) and my card was done…

This is an easy & very cost effective way to get a button-look on your Holiday cards without big expense or adding weight to your cards which is really important if mailing them…

Quick & easy Hershey bar Mummy…

Well, I was looking for some quick & easy treats to make for Halloween (guess who left the school treats to the last minute again?!) and I came across a fantastic idea from Dawn Olchefske that is fun, quick & easy to make – and just perfect for those last-minute treat makers like me!!!

These are SO MUCH FUN to make and you can easily make them with kids too – my girls are going to LOVE putting these together later today, and all you need are a few basic supplies to make them…

Here is the Hershey bar mummy…

mummy-side

Isn’t that CUTE?!!!  Yup – it is simply a chocolate bar that is wrapped in filter paper strips – easy, cheap & lots of fun to make!

The chocolate bar…use any that you like – I chose Hershey bars as they are my kids favorites…and the size – I bought a 6 pack of chocolate bars for around $5.  Then adhere a piece of cardstock to the front of your chocolate bar to cover the writing and give you a nice solid colored base to work with – I used a piece of Chocolate Chip sized 2 1/8″ x 5 1/4″.

The paper strips…simply cut 1″ strips of very thin paper such as White Filter Paper (pg 193) and tape the end to the back of the bar and wrap it around and around – always finish at the back for a neat look.

Work your way up and down until the bar is covered and overlapped a couple of times – and leave a little space for the eyes to peek through – this is what you will have when you are done wrapping…

mummy-tutorial-3

The eyes…you can use googly eyes or use Circle Punches to make them – I used 1″  & 1/2″ Circle Punches to make them (all are on pg 221) – and adhere in place…

Tthey look cute just peeking out from underneath a bandage…

mummy-eyes

The tag…is made using a stamp from Bite Me (online only stamp set – click HERE to find it!) and I shaped it using more punches – the 1 3/8″ & 1 1/4″ Circle Punches – and attached it with a piece of White Bakers Twine (pg 206)…

mummy-tag

Thank you for the great idea Dawn – I absolutely LOVE how these turned out and will be making a bunch more this week with my girls!

Stamp: Bite Me (134622)

So Grateful for my Customers…

I just mailed out a thank you card to my customers who have ordered with me during October and love how this card turned out…

I love to leave the card that I mail to them ‘blank’ inside so that they can re-use it and so I make them seasonal and with Thanksgiving on the horizon, October’s card had a thankful Fall theme.

And here it is…I am loving those fall colors…

fallwonderfallwreaththankyou

This card is fun to make because I used several dies on it – LOVE playing with my Big Shot & dies!

The card base…is Soft Suede onto which I layered a piece of Cajun Craze – I also taped a triple strand piece of Linen Thread (pg 206) about 1/3rd of the way down and tied a bow onto the center of it.

The wood background…is a fabulous large background stamp called Hardwood (pg 175) – I stamped this wood image using Soft Suede ink onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock for a strong but not overpowering backdrop…

The wreath…that lovely wreath is made using three stamps from the set Wonderous Wreath (pg 9 Holiday Catalog) – you layer the stamps on top of one another and to make lining them up easy, each stamp has a tab at the top that you use as a guide…

The bottom stamp was stamped using Crushed Curry Ink, the next layer Cajun Craze and the top layer of berries is Blackberry Bliss – I then die cut this wreath out using two perfectly co-ordinating dies from Wonderful Wreath Framelits (also on pg 9) and attached my wreath to the base using Dimensionals…

wonderfulwreath-closeup

The sentiment…is from the set For All Things (pg 41 Holiday Catalog) – I stamped it using Soft Suede ink and cut it out using a banner die from Banners Framelits (pg 231).

The leaves…aren’t they cute?  I used two leaf dies from Fun Fall Framelits (pg 46 Holiday Catalog) to cut them out of Soft Suede, Crushed Curry & Tangelo Twist cardstocks…

fallwonderfulwreaththankyou-2

I love how this card turned out and hope that my customers love it to – they get a thank you card every month that they place an order with me and I always include a little gift in with it just to show how thankful I am for them…LOVE my customers!

Chick Feeder re-purposed as a Halloween Candy Corn Dispenser!

You read it right – this project uses a Chick Feeder and with it, a very different way to present your Halloween candies!!!

This works great with candy corn and M&M sized candies – the holes give you great access to get at those candies and the filled jar ensures that the bottom tray stays full!  But I warn you…it makes those candy corn irresitable to eat LOL!

AND this is a very economical dispenser too – I found the base on amazon.com for just $6 including shipping and onto it you simply screw a quart sized preserving jar – easy, quick to put together and what a novel gift for a friend or teacher!

Here is my Candy Corn Dispenser…isn’t that fun?

halloween-chick-feeder

LOVE LOVE LOVE this – it makes me smile every time I look at it!  SO much so that it is now sitting down on the bar between my kitchen and the family room inviting all who walk past it to grab some…where the kids are concerned, I might be regretting this later LOL!!!

The base…is a galvanized steel feeder base for birds and it is food safe – I found it on amazon.com for around $6 (and it ships for free!) and it arrived to my door really fast!  If you want to get one, CLICK HERE to find it – you could get it in time for Halloween!  Please note – it does not include the jar…

The jar…is a quart sized preserving jar – I found it in my local grocery store and got a pack of 12 of them for $11 which is also a great price (I know that Walmart carries them too) – pint sized jars will also fit onto this feeder but the quart size looks better!

Sarah’s Note: BE SURE to get jars with ‘standard’ openings – the ‘wide’ opening jars do not fit this feeder base!

Then simply fill your jar with candy, screw on the base and there you have your dispenser ready to go!

halloween-chick-feeder-closeup

But of course I couldn’t leave it bare and just had to embellish it with some Stampin Up goodness…

The ribbons…so I dug out some ribbons and found some perfect candy corn colored ones!  All can be found on pgs 206-7 of the Catalog and I used:

  • 134549 5/8″ Whisper White Satin
  • 133669 3/8″ Tangelo Twist Stitched Satin
  • 133671 3/8″ Hello Honey Stitched Satin

I wrapped them around the jar in layers and tied a knot – easy to get a great look!

The tag…is stamped using a stamp from Merry Everything and punched out using the perfectly co-ordinating Note Tag Punch (find both on pg 13 Holiday Catalog)…BUNDLE UP & SAVE 15% WHEN YOU BUY THEM BOTH TOGETHER – details are below!

The finishing touch…I added a little Rhinestone to the top of the spider’s web and added the tag to the jar using a piece of White & Tangerine Two Tone Twine (pg 45 Holiday Catalog)…

halloween-chick-feeder-tag

I am planning to make a couple more for teacher gifts – I love how these turned out and can see myself using this idea year round!

Little Furball inside a Pumpkin…

We have a naughty cat…a very naughty cat…in fact he is like a 2 year old who needs watching all the time LOL!  He steals food…eats anything he can find…gets stuck because he is so nosey and just has to climb into things he shouldn’t…

And so my card today was designed with him in mind!!!  This morning I purchased the jack o lanterns for the kids to carve next week…and last year not only did he try to eat them, he also climbed inside one of them when the seeds have been scooped out…

And here is my card featuring just that vision of him…LOL…isn’t this cute?!  This is the card that I will be mailing to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers tomorrow – they get a card each month to thank them for their subscriptions…

cat-halloween-card

That was my first version…and then when I saw it a few hours after posting it here, I thought it might need a little something extra and added a strip of ribbon as you can see below…which one do you prefer?

cat-halloween-withribbon

I am so happy with how it turned out!  And I think my girls are going to flip when they come home from school and see it – they are BIG in to cats…

The card base…is Basic Black onto which I layered a piece of black that I textured using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (pg 226) – and added a strip of green polka dotted patterned paper from Brights Backgrounds DSP Stack (pg 185)…

The cat in the pumpkin…the cat was stamped using a stamp from You Little Furball (pg 112) – this is a fun cat themed set and it is super versatile!  I stamped the head onto a scrap of paper, cut it out and added it using a Dimensional for more of a 3-D look.

The pumpkins…were stamped using Tangelo Twist ink and two stamps from the set Fall Fest (pg 46 Holiday Catalog) which I cut out easily using a perfectly co-0rdinating die from the set Fun Fall Framelits (pg 46 Holiday Catalog)  – I then cut the largest pumpkin in half and used Dimensionals to add it onto of my cat image…

cat-halloween-closeupThe leaves…are stamped in Old Olive ink using another stamp from Fall Fest – I cut them out again using a co-ordinating die from Fun Fall Framelits and dotted them around my card.

WHEN YOU PURCHASE THAT STAMP SET WITH THE CO-ORDINATING FRAMELITS DIES TOGETHER IN THE FALL FEST BUNDLE YOU SAVE 15%!  Click HERE to find that Bundle!

The sentiment…is a stamp from Good Greetings (which is a Hostess set that you can get for FREE through October 31st – click HERE to find out more!) and I cut it out using a banner shaped die from Circles Card Thinlits

cat-halloween-sentiment

The finishing touches…I added a Rhinestone Jewel the cat’s collar and bows made out of Linen Thread to the leaves on the pumpkins…

Patterned Paper Witches Broom Treat…

Now this is a one cute & simple treat to make but I think it looks absolutely fantastic!!!

You can use it as a gift all on it’s own, or use it as a cool witch-y tag for a larger treat – either way, it is sure to be well received!

All you need to make it is a licorice stick, a cello tube and some patterned paper – and I put together a FREE PRINTABLE TUTORIAL for you to make it easy for you to make some of your own – find the link to it in the post below!

Here is my Witches Broom Treat…I made two – one orange & one purple and I will gift them along with a couple of halloween colored nail polishes – you can see piccies below of the finished sets…

orangebroom

Isn’t it CUTE?!  I absolutely love it and I promise you it is quick, easy & fun to make – you could easily make a bunch of these for class treats!

The broomstick…is simply a black Twizzler that I popped into a 1″ x 8″ Cello Tube Bag – find those perfect sized tube bags on pg 200 and in the online store by clicking HERE - and that is literally all you do to make the broomstick!

The broom…is a piece of 2 1/2″ x 12″ patterned paper – I thought that the polka dotted papers that you can find in Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stacks (pg 185) are perfect for this:

The paper was scored twice & the fringe was made by using the fabulous Fringe Scissors (pg 215) – if you don’t have a pair of those yet you are missing out LOL – I do not know what I would do without them these days!

I then wrapped the paper around the broomstick and finally wrapped around some Linen Thread (pg 206) to give a realistic broom look…

witchesbrooms1

The tags…were made using stamps from Tee-Hee-Hee (pg 47 Holiday Catalog) and punched out using the Ticket Duo Builder Punch (pg 220) – I then pierced a small hole and attached my tag to the broom using a bow for a cute finishing touch.

These are for teacher gifts and so I wanted to add a little something extra to the package – I found some fantastic Halloween nail polish on sale at our local grocery store and popped them into 4″ x 6″ sized Cello Bags (pg 200), tied a bow around the top and added a little bat tag to each (the bat stamp is also in Tee-Hee-Hee and just LOVE how these two items look together…

witchesbroom-orange

And here they are both together…

dspwitchesbroomtreats

Which color do you prefer?  I am torn between the purple and orange – I love them both!!!
