Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I have two posts for you today so make sure you scroll down to view my project for Create with Connie & Mary's challenge!

I have a rewind of some sorts for today. I made the card below when I first started stamping. It's been ages and ages ago. It was actually a card I made for my Mom & Dad and when they sold their home 2 years ago to move to a senior housing complex, my Mom gave me a bag of ALL of my cards she had saved over the years. It was fun to go through them to see how far I've come along in stamping. So this is my "antique" Thanksgiving card:


So funny, look how I cut around the turkey and sponged him. I did not have much for supplies back then so I remember coloring him with colored pencils, too funny! I really like the card shape so I recreated it with today's Stampin' Up! products:


I really, really like our Four Feathers stamp set:


And how pretty to add Champagne Glimmer Paper:

Make sure you enjoy time with family today! Happy Thanksgiving....don't eat too much and don't forget to visit me tomorrow for some Black Friday goodiness!

CCMC #331!

I had to get away from Christmas cards for a bit. This time of year, us Stampin' Up! Demonstrators have been creating Christmas cards since about August. So I hope you understand that I needed a break! This is a neat sketch from our challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary:
 

Here's my card for this week:


The Four Feathers stamp set was so perfect for this challenge. I stamped and cut 6 feathers and lined them up to resemble the sketch. Each cluster is pinned to the Baker's Twine with Candy Dots and Candy Dots Bases:


And I snuck a simple sentiment at the bottom:

 
Here's a listing of Stampin' Up! supplies:
 
  • Stamps: Four Feathers, Good Greetings
  • Inks: Pink Pirouette, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss

Gentle Peace & Blendabilities!

Today I want to show you a special order of cards I made for a customer using the Gentle Peace stamp set. I made 25 of these which are all colored with the Blendabilities Alcohol Markers and embossed with the Filigree Frame Embossing Folder:


I used various colors of Blendabilities Makers on the cards. I love how the shades of Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy Blendies look on Mary & Joseph:



For the sentiment, I cut the ends of the cardstock piece with my scissors! The most important request made by my customer, was that the cards be religious with religious scripture on them. This stamp set was perfect!




Stampin' Up! Doorbuster's! If you missed the ONE DAY DOORBUSTER on Monday, there will be another ONE DAY DOORBUSTER again on December 1st. These doorbuster's are all WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! You can still jump in on the Extravaganza Sale, click here for the PDF:

Designer Paper Gift Bag with Lid!

Good day stampers and welcome! So glad you are visiting today as I have something neat to show you. Earlier in the year, I showed you how to create a homemade gift bag using two pieces of 12" x 12" designer paper. You can view the tutorial here: GIFT BAG TUTORIAL

So what am I going to show you today? I'm going to show you how to add a lid to your gift bag. Take a look at my gift bag below and you'll notice that I created a lid-style topper:


The lid is created with two slits at the top so that the twine handles slide in to keep it in place. The photo below shows you both pieces...the bag and the lid:


See how the handles are inserted through the two slits?



And I used the nutcracker image from the Santa Stache stamp set for the front of the bag and stamped him a 2nd time and cut out the stache only for the top of the lid. I used my Blendabilities Markers to color. Isn't he handsome?


I know you are absolutely going to want to create the lid so here are the measurements:
  • Cardstock measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/4"
  • Score 1" on all 4 sides
  • Snip the tabs on the score lines as shown in the photo below and also angle the ends a little for easier gluing:

Use your Paper Cutter to create slits on the inside of the score lines on the long side as shown below. My slits measure 1/8" x 3 1/2":


Glue all 4 tabs to create the sides of your lid. Decorate as you like and position on the top of your gift bag by sliding the handles in through the slits:


Sooo, did you read my post yesterday about Black Friday just being around the corner. Did you work on your wish list? I will have some surprises of my own on that day. Make sure you are prepared for it! Here's more of what's going on:

Stampers For Others Hop!

This is my 3rd post of the day! Lucky you! My teammates from the Stamper For Others group are hosting a "Facebook Hop" tonight. Start with my page here: Debbie's Designs Facebook Page and click on "Like" my page while you are there visiting so you'll get my notifications in your Facebook Feed!

Our theme this month is "Gratitude". I decided to create 2 coordinating projects for you:
 

I made a scrolled frame and a matching 3" x 3" card. First up is the scrolled frame:


I cut up 2 skewers to use on the top and bottom and added Sticky Strip to the skewers. I then rolled my Early Espresso Cardstock layers around the skewers. Notice the yellow coloring on my embossed, stamped image? I used an older Blender Pen and some bleach to color the flowers. If you wait a few minutes after coloring....voila, magic appears. The cardstock bleaches out with color!

The card:


I coordinated the colors, the embossing, the ribbon and the bleaching. This twosome makes a unique gift and a great pair. Don't you think?  I hope you visit me on Facebook and "Like" my page and then click on the links to help you travel to my teammates pages.

How would you love to be part of our group? Here's what's going on this week:

Merry Monday #136 & Black Friday!

Bonnie is having us use traditional Christmas colors this week for our challenge at Merry Monday:


Red, Green & White are the colors and this is what I made using those 3 colors:


I used the Banner Punch to cut out lots of banners in all three colors. I staggered them both horizontally and vertically under my sentiment panel and layered over a Tea Lace Doiy.  For the sentiment, I inked my stamp image from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set with VersaMark Ink and sprinkled Cherry Cobbler Ink. I set with my Heat Tool and then sponged Old Olive Ink over the embossing to fill in the letters with color:


A cute little Candy Dot adorns the All Is Calm Snowflake Emellishment and hangs with a bow tied with Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.

The embossing is real pretty in person:

 
Looks fabulous doesn't it? Also wanted to let you know I'll have another post tonight at 8:00 p.m. as my Stampers for Others Team has a Facebook Hop and I'll post here what I created for it!
 

Did you know there are only 5 days left for "Black Friday"? If you stick with me until then, I will be announcing some spectacular announcements for anyone that places orders with me on "Black Friday"....stay tuned.....!
