Baker's Twine Webbed Card!

Here is my very neat project for today! I received an email from the company that I purchased my eCutter from and in that email, they showed a photo of a project that was called a "string spider web". That's where today's inspiration came from. I knew I could make this on my own using my Stampin' Up! supplies. What do you think of my "string spider web" card?

And my punch art 3D spider:

Here's a side view of the card so you can see that it's open in the middle of the card front:

And this is what it looks like when it's open:

I think this is such a neat card and so much fun to create. I used the Circles Collection Framelits Dies to cut out two scallops. Using one of the scallops, I centered a circle 2 sizes smaller to cut the inside. I then used a 1/4" hand-held punch and punched the small holes around the scallops at every other scallop:

Then all you do is start threading your Baker's Twine every-which way from one hole to the other until you like the look. I ended in the same hole I started and them double-knotted and snipped the ends off. 
For the inside of the card, I cut a circle a size larger than the circle in the front, in Basic Gray Cardstock. I then scored from scallop-to-scallop at the very top and folded. I then glued the folded portion to the front portion.

Did you know that you can get awesome ideas such as this card with our Holiday Collection at Create with Connie & Mary? You can still join and catch up with all of our postings that started last week. Lots of ideas for the holidays!

Stampers for Others Facebook Hop!

I belong to a group of teammates called the "Stampers for Others". We are all Stampin' Up! Uplines, Downlines and Sidelines to each other. I wanted to try something new for our team and maybe even something new period. I have never seen a "Facebook Hop" before and I asked my teammates if they wanted to try one. We all have business Facebook pages and we are all linking to each other by means of a link to click on that belongs to the next person in line.

Our theme is "Fall" and this is the card I am showing on my business Facebook page. Please click here to start the tour with my page once you leave here: DEBBIE'S DESIGNS FACEBOOK

While there, I would appreciate it if you "liked" my page and left me a comment to say Hi! I will also direct you to the next person and we have a total of 15 participating! Wow!

I decided to use the stamp set "For All Things" along with the  "Post Card" stamp. What a great way to show off fall by stamping collage style and adding a few layers here and there. I also colored the Pearl Jewels with my Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities Markers to coordinate with the colors.

Merry Monday #131!

Good Monday Morning Stampers! I love Monday's for only one reason and that is because we get to play with a brand new challenge at Merry Monday! I normally don't like Monday's because that means the weekend is gone!
This is our inspiration photo for this week with our lovely hostess Lori:

For my non-traditional colors I used Strawberry Slush and Elegant Eggplant and I threw in Crumb Cake and Whisper White:

The sentiment from the "Mingle All The Way" stamp set fits perfectly in the Note Tag Punch and I layered this over a tag cut with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. I used the snowflakes from the "Endless Wishes" stamp set in 3 colors to fill up my Top Note Die shape. Take a peek at my pearls also. Did you notice I colored them to match the eggplant? I used a Permanent marker to achieve this!

I'm so glad you stopped in today. Please visit Merry Monday to see what else the Merry Makers came up with and come play with our challenge this week!
