Among the Branches Treats

Among the branches, Spider Web doilies, BLack Glimmer paper, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersAre you looking for striking and easy treat?   Check out these Sketched Dots Tag a Bag Gift Bags (boy that's a long name!).  On this one, I colored it with Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry.  I just used the stamp pad and masked off a line where the colors come together.  These are glassine type bags - great for food.  But, it will take a bit for the ink to dry on them.

Among the branches, spider doily, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peteres, Sketched Dots Tag a Bag Gift bagI used the Among the Branches stamp set (Holiday catalog) and a feature of a Class in the Mail.  I love the spider doilies and a bit of black glimmer paper.  Super fun!

Gift Card Framelit to the Rescue

Gift Card Framelit, Silver Foil, Red Glimmer, Winter Wonderland vellum stack, Stampin' up!, BJ PetersOur daughters best friend was married on Saturday.  Jim and I love how so many of our kids friends treat us like parents and Chrissy's friend Sarah was no exception.  She is a special lady and now a special wife to Peter.  With someone so special getting married, you want to have the perfect gift and the perfect gift presentation.  Thus I spent a little time getting this one right. 

Gift Card Framelit, Silver Foil, Red Glimmer, Winter Wonderland vellum stack, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, Color Me IrrestistibleI had a decorative serving spoon and a gift card for Sarah and Peter.  I wrapped the spoon in tissue paper and then used some of the Color Me Irresistible paper to wrap around it.  Then I added a red ribbon.

 Gift Card Framelit, Silver Foil, Red Glimmer, Winter Wonderland vellum stack, Stampin' up!, BJ PetersFor the gift card, I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlit.  I added a belly band of Silver foil paper covered with a band of from the Winter Wonderland designer vellum stack.  I punched a heart from Red Glimmer paper with the Sweetheart punch and a tail of silver sequins.  It sure turned out beautiful - just as I wanted. 

Chrissy at Sarah's wedding

Here's our beautiful daughter.  She did a fabulous job as the Maid of Honor.  It was fun to meet more of her friends and friends parents.  Proud mom and dad moments when you hear from her friends parents what a wonderful lady she is!

Acorny Thank You Case

Acorny Thank You, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Metallic Gold Cording, Gold Foil, Envelope Paper

Acorny Thank You is a new stamp set from the Holiday Catalog (starts Sept 1!).  I know, the wait has been miserable because there is so much fabulousness in the catalog!  This is a simple card with just a tiny bit of detail.  I actually Cased this card from the catatlog. 

Case - what's that?  Copy And Share Everything.  Do you ever wonder where I get the ideas for my projects?  Well, I CASE some.  There are the usual places;  catalog samples, pinterest (could spend all day), swaps from fellow demos and my past projects.  Stampin' Up! also provides all the samples we could ever need/want for their demonstrators.  (something to keep in mind if you've considered joining my team)  In theory then, I should never run out of ideas.  But the truth is that my brain does take a creative break every now and then!

Acorny Thank You, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Envelope Paper, Metalic Gold Trim, Sequins, Gold FoilAcorny Thank You comes as a bundle with a coordinating punch (Acorn Builder Punch).  Here I have stamped the Acorn on Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake Ink and punched the top of the acorn out in Gold Foil paper (hard to see).  I placed the acorn inside a 2" circle.  Added a bow with the new Metallic Gold cord trim and a few sequins.   The greeting is right from the stamp set and matches the Bitty Banners Framelits. 

Acorny Thank You, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Envelope Paper, Metalic Gold Trim, Sequins, Gold Foil, Bitty Banners FramelitsHere's the inside of the card where you can see that I used the new Trio Corner punch.  I can't wait to show you all of the new products, for now I can only post samples. 

If you don't yet have your Holiday catalog, be sure and contact me right away!
