Christmas blog hop - a calendar project


The countdown to Christmas has started…Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our blog hop theme this month is Christmas/New Years. 

Since I make mini-calendars to enclose with my Christmas cards to my family, I wanted to share that with you...here is my purse calendar for this year:

 



Here is a picture of what the back of the calendar looks like:
  


These are the Stampin’ Up products I used:
Scallop tag topper punch (the tag is 2-1/8” x 3-1/4” & folded over at 2-1/8” for flap)
Layering ovals framelits (handle)
Quilted Christmas designer paper 6 x 6
Holly berry builder punch (small bow)
Real red cardstock (back 2-1/8” x 2”)
Rhinestone

The small self-sticking calendar is from Vippies – at www.vippies.com you can find the tutorial I basically used for my purse calendar.  Now I just have to make more of these calendars for my cards ASAP - Good thing they are easy!  I'll just make them up while I watch one of the many Christmas shows on television right now LOL.

November blog hop!

 It’s that time of the year that seems to go by super fast and has several holidays one right after another, isn’t it?!  Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our blog hop theme this month is Thanksgiving/Thankful/Thank You.  Here is my project:




I love using metallic and copper is my favorite; so when I saw a card by Mike Funke using copper, I just had to “case” it (Copy And Share Everything)!
Besides the copper foil paper, I used black glimmer paper, the garden trellis embossing folder, the leaf punch, copper trim, black rhinestones, and Painted Harvest stamp set (greeting).  The copper foil really reflects the light, so here are a few more pictures of my card:

Happy halloween projects


Happy Halloween!  How was your halloween?  Even though my two sons are grown up and one of them is married, I still send them halloween cards and "treats."  I always had so much fun taking them around trick or treating, and since I could sew, they always got to dress up in whatever they wanted....Sonic the hedgehog, Blues clues, Grim reaper, and Power Ranger were some of the costumes I made for them.  The pumpkin in the previous picture was the first trick-or-treat holder that my youngest son had lol.

Stampin' Up's halloween reversible designer paper, washi tape, and ribbon are perfect for making a halloween card for each of them, as well as wrapping their halloween treats - here are a few pictures of the treats I sent my two sons and daughter-in-law:



 Notice the fake spider on a couple of the packages?!!

I would have liked to have dressed up my two furbabies in their costumes, but they wouldn't work out with their harnesses during their walks. So I just put colorful scarves on them - I recently read that dog scarves make a dog more approachable.  




  I also put up some outside halloween decorations up - purple lights, autumn leaves, lighted pumpkin, scarecrows, scary cat, and witches hat.  Hope you had some halloween candy!

P.S.  You can buy most of the Stampin' Up items I used in my online Stampin' Up store:  http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/marynoble/

Oct. blog hop - October already?!



Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  
Gee, last month just flew by, didn't it?!

Our blog hop theme this month is Halloween or Fall. Being involved with Stampin’ Up made me start making Halloween cards as they always have so many great inspiring ideas and projects. Here is my project:


I used the Spooky Nights designer paper and cat punch from the current holiday catalog, as well as black rhinestone jewels and the vintage crochet trim. 


Can you see how I wrapped the trim around my card twice so that it looks like one wide lace trim?  


This was a fun card to make, as the Spooky Nights designer paper is double sided and this makes it so versatile!  I used 6 different papers from this set!!

Blog hop with Stampin' Up Holiday catalog!


Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our blog hop theme this month is the new Holiday Catalog, which is now available!  Since I am a dog lover, of course I had to use the Santa Paws stamp set!!  Here is my project:


I fell in love with the limeade color in the current Stampin’ Up In Colors and had to use it for a generic holiday card with Santa Paws….it really catches your eye!  

The current issue of the Stampin’ Success (demonstrator’s newsletter) had an article on using glossy cardstock and there were two techniques I wanted to try. Since I couldn’t decide which one to use, I decided to use both, and also cased one of the card designs! (reinkers and water drops; also Old Olive reinker). 



You will want to be sure to look at the new holiday catalog….

Umbrella weather! Stampin' Up "stepped up" cards

It has been "monsoon" season here in Arizona - humid, rainy, wet...reminds me of when I lived on the east coast....it has caused my sinuses and allergies to act up and I have not been well the last few weeks.  So yesterday I finally went to the doctor, who told me I should have come in sooner (never had that happen before!) and I had to get two (!) shots and antibiotics.  My bad...but already I'm feeling a little bit better and food is starting to taste good again.

Monsoon season is the Arizona summer thunderstorm season and is approximately 56 days -- there is more rain during this time - every day, and mostly cloudy.  And of course it is hot - around 100 degrees.  I thought the Stampin' Up stamp set Weather Together and matching framelits are perfect to share!  It has a cute umbrella, and I like umbrellas.



With the framelits, you can easily die cut lots of cute umbrellas without that fussy cutwork!!  At the beginning of this post was an easy and quick card to make using this set from the Stampin' Up Artisan team (they provide tons of great ideas).  If you like to make cards with a little more embellishments, here are 2 "stepped up" cards based on the easy card:

Embossing paste and the cloud decorative mask are used on the last card.  You can purchase the items for this card in my online store, and if you want to get a discount on Stampin' Up items, by joining as a demonstrator, you not only get this, but ideas, promotions, advance notices, tutorials, and so much more....check it out in my online store:

Here are a few more cute projects using this stamp set:

If you really, really like umbrellas, here is another pretty stamp set with an umbrella, Beautiful You.





Hope you are staying drier than we are here!
