This is my January framable art project.  I used My Digital Studio to design the trees on the blue background and added snowflakes punched from silver glimmer paper and added a rhinestone to the center of each snowflake.  I tore a 3" strip of white card stock and ran through the big shot with a snowflake embossing folder for the snow at the bottom.  I printed out Winter Wonderland on the computer, cut and adhered with dimensions.  That was layered on silver glimmer paper and framed.

I created this card to send after Christmas for gifts I received. I used Night of Navy card stock as the base of the card. I Stamped 3 pine trees with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled lightly with Winter White Embossing Powder and heat set. Next I stamped 3 more pine trees overlapping some and spread embossing powder heavily over the trees and heat set. I used the faux suede technique on a 1x4 strip of white card stock and tore one edge which gave it the appearance of snow. After adhering with adhesive I spritz the entire card with Vanilla Smooch sprinkled more embossing powder lightly over the trees and heat set to create the look of snow. The tag was stamped with black on Bashful Blue and adhered with dimensional.

These cute snowmen are actually Hershey bar wrappers! I made these for stocking stuffers wrapping the bars in paper with the face and buttons printed on my computer. I added fleece hats and scarf and decorated with additional bling. I don't have a sewing matching but made the hat using fabric glue which worked perfectly!

I made these glitter ornaments as stocking stuffers.  Very simle to do.  Pour liquid clear glue in the ornament and turn to coat the entire inside of the glass ornament pouring out any extra.  Pour glitter color of your choice into the ornament and turn and shake to coat the inside and voile it's finished!  Replace the top and tie a ribbon to the ornament hanger and they are finished.

This cute box of candy would be a great gift for teachers, co-workers, your beauticians or manicurists.  It is made out of card stock and designer series papers.  Designer series papers serve as outer wrappers for the Rollo's and chocolate Nuggets.  It's actually a square box with 4 drawers containing the candy.

I made this extra special card for an extra special person.  I would never make multiples of this card but it was fun!  It's 4x4" on white CS.  I used the Top Note die and cut Real Red CS in the shape of a sleigh.  The leaves were punched with the Bird Builder punch and adheared with Multipurpos Liquid Glue.  The presents were cut from DSP, CS and Glimmer Paper.  The bows were cut from CS and trimmed with the Uni-ball White Gel Pen to simulate ribbon.  I adhered strips of rhinestones on the top edge of the sleigh and on the bottom for runners.  The greeting was stamped using StazOn ink.

I created these Christmas cards using the Snow Festival Designer Printed Tag, DSP, Ribbon and CS. The greetings were stamped using a set that had a greeting that would fit the tag or space available.  I added some bling like rhinestones and pearls to some of the cards.  I colored some of the pearls and rhinestones with a red sharpie to match the design.   Some of the card fronts were run through my Big Shot to give it added texture.  I stamped the mitten, cut out and layered with dimensionals.  The "Joy" card was colored with SU markers and then I added Chrystal Effects.

I created this framed art Christmas decor with a 5x7" frame from Hobboy Lobby.  The squares are each 2" spaced evenly from each other and the edge of the frame.

I made this tree last year out of strips of designer series paper pinned to a Styrofoam tree.  I added a little bling to each loop with a rhinestone and added a gold star on the top.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.  It was time consuming but makes a perfect decoration for my stamping room.

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I just completed another frameable art using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software.  It's an 8x10" frame purchased at Hobby Lobby.  The design is layered on Silver Glimmer Paper.  I printed out 2 copies and cut out 2 of the ornaments and the heart from one copy and layered with dimensionals.  I also added red and clear rhinestones to the ornaments and the holly berries.  I made a pennant out of coordinating DSP and some of the blue background from the printout to string across the top with Linen Thread and finished it off with rhinestones.

I'm working on hand-made Christmas presents  this year and started with money holders which I CASED from Robin Messenheimer another demonstrator.  The first picture is the front of the money holder which you can insert U.S. currency into and it fits in Stanpin' Up!'s open end envelope which meets the measurement standards set by the postal service.  They will also fit nicely snuggled into a Christmas tree without the envelope because they are so decorative!  

Here is a picture of the 4 different designs for the money holders.  It is a fun and easy project.  Email me and I'll email you a PDF of instructions and measurements.

This framed art was created using My Digital Studio.  I used Champagne Glimmer Paper and Early Espresso Card Stock matting which really sets off the images printed on Vanilla Card Stock.

Wine Bottle Decoration

I made this decoration to hang on a wine bottle that I am taking to a Halloween party for the hostess.  I used the scoring pad and created a medallion, attached another circle of ribbon to the center and another stamped  halloween image to the center of the ribbon flower and hung the entire medallion around the neck of the bottle with ribbon. 

Altered tin using DSP and ribbon to cover the tin and a button for the center of the DSP flower. I covered the entire tin with Mod Podge. I use this tin for my drawing box for door prizes at the classes.

I got the idea from my upline again for this card.  I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink and sponged the colors to the center of the card.  Then I spritzed with gold.    Stamped the leaves in brown, ran it through the lattice folder and adhered to brown cs and brushed gold.  The ribbon is treaded through a ribbon slide. 

Sunday, October 14, 2012

This is a card I CASED from my upline. I used Gold Spritz to give the leaves a little shine.

I made this little purse using the Big Shot Die.  I cut off the top flap and ran the pink card stock throught the Big Shot using an embossing folder. The flowers were punched out of various colors of pink card stock and adhered using glue dots and decorated with tiny pearls.  The handles were die cut and attached with silver brads.  These little purses are great for holding Hershey Nuggets!

I created this card using the new stamps and designer papers from the new Stampin Up Catalog.  It took a long time but I really liked the results!

This is a birthday card that I made in MSA and added some extras. 

This is the Halloween card with a greeting added from card stock and punches, a glitter brad and a bow.  Looks much nicer!

Halloween card I made using MDS.  I plan to ad some bling to make the card look more like a handmade card.
