Merry Crittermas

Here are a few samples of my new favorite set Merry Crittermas out of the Stampin' Up! Holiday mini catalog.

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.

I colored the image using my Stampin' Write Markers, and I used a blender pen to soften them. Sahara Sand is my favorite color for shadows... what do you think?

What is your favorite new Christmas stamp set?

Project Mondays???

Its been awhile, I know....
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.
For this card I used the Stamp set Inspired By Nature. I used Nat quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Versa Mark ink pads. Also used Poppy Parade marker, Poppy parade DSP, Confetti white, Not Quite Navy and Crumb Cake cs. Victoria ribbon, shimmer brads ( from the Holiday Mini), scallop edge punch, 1/2 inch circle punch and clear embossing powder.
The technique used is emboss resist. I first stamped the "Live with Passion" image in NQN, then I stamped the flower in versamark and embossed with the clear powder. I then randomly stamped the words again.
The next step was to place some Poppy Parade ink on the top of the flower, and swipe it off with a sponge. then I sponged the Crumb Cake and NQN ink over the image.

I then punched the DSP, and attached the 1/2 inch circle and the ribbon using a glimmer brad

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!!
please tell me what you think!

Cute Crittermas

Here is a card that I made for a Holiday Mini Swap.
The set is Cute Crittermas from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog

I used the Snowflake embossing Folder, and colored the image with a blender pen.

It's been awhile....

But I have a great card to share with you.....

check out this awesome care I made using punches...

can you guess which Stampin' Up! punches I used?

Well its pretty obvious that I used the circle and oval punches... I also used the word window punch ( for the stems) the two step Bird extra large punch ( the leaves)

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!
