My Happy Birthday Cards!

It was my birthday on November 28th and I have some really great stamping friends. Along with cards from my family, I received all of these homemade-stamped cards:




Created by Cathy Williams (my Sideline)

Created by Diane Lethbridge (my Sideline)




Create by Kristie Goulet (my Merry Monday teammate)




Created by Stella MacKay (my Upline)





Created by Bonnie Klass (my Merry Monday teammate)




Created by Cathy Autrey (my Maine SU! friend)




Created by Janet Goshorn (my Sideline) and look what she sent me with my card:




This cute custom embroidered hand towel. Isn't it the cutest?





Janet makes these for anyone interested in purchasing one. You can email her at: gosh2fly@centurylink.net and tell her I sent you!


And this last was sent to me from Shannon West. She is an employee of Stampin' Up! and earlier this year, started an #imbringingbirthdaysback movement. She actually carved the stamp out herself and it soon became available for purchase. If you take a peek at photo #2, you'll see the stamp image on the back of the envelope and the back of the card which I didn't take a photo of:





You'll also notice that my card is #1948 that she has mailed out since she started this movement. This movement was to encourage people to go back to sending cards by snail mail instead of hitting a button on the computer! Kudos to Shannon!

Norma's Workshop!



What do you get when you add the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, the Gift Box Punch Board, the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies and the Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper?


Why all 3 of these projects of course!




For almost 8 years now, I've had workshops in my home for all of my local customers each month. Starting in January, I am turning all of the workshops into Stamp Clubs. All 3 of these projects were created by all of the attendees at Norma's workshop and I wanted to give them a taste of what to expect starting in January. The first project is a card of course and here's a close-up of the detail:




We then added a coordinating box made with the  Gift Box Punch Board:





And lastly, we added a coordinating tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch:

  • Stamps: Christmas Pines
  • Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Garden Green
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake

Craft Fair Nugget Chocolate Projects!

REMINDER: I am offering 20% off all orders during the month of December through my Online Store. I will mail you a check for the 20% discount plus my FREE card kit for the month!




There are so many craft fair projects you can create using Hershey Nuggets. And of course while you are creating you can add a nugget to your project, pop a nugget in your mouth...you know, you have to have a taste while you create! Yum!



So all four of these projects used the nuggets. The first one is a little nugget tray made out of cardstock to hold 3 nuggets made to look like a snowman:



Want an easy way to decorate the nuggets? White address labels are the perfect size to stamp on and wrap around each chocolate piece. They already have adhesive on them so this makes it quick!




My 2nd project is a foursome of nuggets added to the inside of a cello bag. I used a retired stamp set on these nuggets, added a bag topper, designer paper and a sentiment cut with the Decorative Label Punch. How sweet is this?




This next project got me a lot of comments at my craft fair. Isn't the reindeer adorable? I found all of these project ideas on Pinterest. This one uses the Owl Punch for the face and the Tree Builder Punch for the antlers:





And finally, my last project uses two nuggets to resemble the shape of a bible with an actual verse on it. I sold quite a few of these too. These Candy Scriptures were quite quick to whip up and here's the link to print the scriptures: CANDY SCRIPTURES




I hope you enjoyed all of my projects for today!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
But wait, there's more.

Merry Monday Challenge #225!



Candy Canes is our Merry Monday Challenge this week brought to you by our hostess Linda. I wanted to use some non-traditional colors with a little pop of red & green:




I started my card by choosing a piece of the Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper because I loved the addition of the crumb cake & delightful dijon colors. I love that the Stitched Shaped Dies oval fits nicely over the Layering Ovals Dies:





All of the candy canes were hand-cut and for the candies I used the 1/2" Circle Punch. To finish off my card I added a pretty bow made with white Organza Ribbon. Please visit my teammates at Merry Monday for some more inspiration this week!



Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Candy Cane Christmas
  • DSP: Warmth & Cheer
  • Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Delightful Dijon
  • Cardstock: Garden Green, Delightful Dijon, Whisper White
  • Accessories: Organza Ribbon
  • Tools: Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies, Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, 1/2" Circle Punch, Paper Snips
