BUT I loved her project so much that I stopped on my way home to purchase all the supplies to recreate it!
So I am sure you want all the details.....
I started out with a frame purchased from IKEA with an 11 x 15 inch opening. Metal flashing was cut by a friend. I purchased the Christmas Cheer Simply Scrappin' Kit from Stampin' Up! ( # 117401 $19.95) and I purchased the tins from Oriental Trading company.
I like how the circle punch fits nicely behind the label punch.

The rhinestones on the top are just the right touch I think.
Okay so if you get this card for Christmas from me, just be nice and pretend that you have never seen it, okay??? Cuz you know I am going to make a bunch of this one!!

This card uses the Curly Lable punch ( cut in half and placed behind the circle punch to look larger) the 1 3/4 inch cirlce punch and the dotted scallop ribbon punch.
Merry Crittermas tree card uses Marna Mist Ribbon, and cs, along with Bashful Blue cs and the new Snow flurry embossing folder.

But I do have a great one to share this week though... This is a card, but I think you will really like it... this also happened to be one of my swap cards for the Saturday Oct 23rd 2010 Portland Regional seminar.
OK so I am sure that you noticed the small hole that can be seen in the second and third photos. My youngest son decided he really wanted to help, so he grabbed my 1/16 hole punch and punch a few things in my stamp room. I with I had a door for my stamp room!!

check out this awesome care I made using punches...
can you guess which Stampin' Up! punches I used?
and the ghosts....
are made using the Two step Owl extra large punch....
So to make the owl turn into a ghost, you will punch out owl using whisper white cs, and trim the feet off, turn upside down and add some eyes.
I did not come up with this great idea.... but isn't it cool!
Have you come up with any unique uses for the Owl Punch from Stampin' Up?
tell me about them!!
thanks for stopping by!

So I bet you just really want the scoop on this one huh?
Okay so I saw a really cool idea in the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog... Which I know you are all dying to see ( you can pre-order a catty from me- or get one free by booking a party!)
This card was inspired by Julie Davison, I liked the layout she used, and wanted to use the same technique, but ended up changing it to my liking!
I used Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard and Old olive markers and cs. I inked up the stamp from the set Watercolor Trio, then after stamping on Whisper White, I spritzed the image with my Stampin' mist to give it a softer, more water colored look.
This card was inspired by Michelle Singer. It is a very patriotic card, I think! It only uses the Sparkle stamp from Warm Words ( which is retiring!) I first punched the star out , then lined up the scallop square punch and punched it out. Then I outlined the star with 2-way glue pen and sprinked Dazzling Diamonds glitter on.
I used Brilliant Blue Whisper White and Real Red cs for this card.
I also used the Real Red Polka dot ribbon, love it! After stampin sparkle in Real Red ink, I outlined it with the 2-way glue pen, then added the Dazzling Diamonds.
want to see more? come to Class tomorrow night ( OPB employees on Thursday)
OR come back on Friday to see the rest of the great cards that we will be making!

To make this card I first started with a card front, then used my square punch to make a template ( I punched it twice to make a rectangle) However I wasn't able to punch it in the center, so I just of set the template when I used it...
I sponged Bashful Blue in the rectangle onto my White card base. Then I used Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgundy Stamp n write markers to color the image on the Water color trio set ( from the Summer Mini)
I stamped it just outside of the blue rectangle, then I stamped my words ( my favorite ever) from the set Favorite thoughts ( again from the Summer mini) in Always Artichoke.
To get the great sparkle I used my glue pen to fill in the flowers, then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
what do you think?

This is a Criss Cross card, I learned how to make this from the resource section on Splitcoast stampers.
For this card I featured many retiring products, Razzleberry DSP, Vintage Brads, Clear Buttons, and Melon Mambo Polka dot Ribbon. Along with Banquet Bunch stamp set from the current Mini catalog. The card base Melon Mambo, the insert is Rich Razzleberry, and US white.
The image again is from the Banquet Bunch stamp set ( Summer Mini 2010) I stamped the vase and flowers in Basic grey, used a blender pen to color the vase with Rich razzleberry, and a marker to color the flowers ( then scribbled the blender pen over the flowers to soften)

So here it is this weeks Funky fold class, Tri-shutter cards. I wasn't sure that I could make to totally different types of the same fold, so we just made 2 different cards.
Card One uses Bouquet Bunch (clear item #120039 $10.95 or wood item # 118529 $13.95) a new stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Summer mini catalog (pg 21) It is a set that I almost didn't even see! But is my FAV!
For this card we use Old Olive cs for the base, Rich Razzleberry cs (layers) and Cottage Wall DSP ( #115671 $9.95) I used the Scallop circle #2 die from Sizzix (old olive) and the Circle Scissor Plus ( #112530 $ 29.95) this was the first time I use the Circle Scissor Plus in class... SO EASY to use!! Just don't for get you need the glass mat (#112531 $19.95)
Even though I was using the clear mount set, I did use my Stamp -a-ma-jig. I have been using this alot lately! I stamped all the images in Basic Gray, and used markers to color,Pale Plum, Rich Razzleberry Old Olive and So Saffron and then blended with a Blender pen ( a must have!!)
I watched the video that Beate Johns had on Splitcoast stampers she has the best tutorials! I paper pierced the circle using her little trick, line up the line of the template ( from the mat pack) with the edge of the shape you are piercing. With the paper piercer still in the template slightly twist the template so that the line above the next hole to be pierced is on the edge of the shape. Keep doing this all the way around your shape. This way you can pierce any shape and have them evenly spaced! Check out the video.
