Many Merry Stars with a Twist!

We have been talking about how we can make these boxes so you can put some treats inside without ruining the box. Well LeeAnn Greff figured out a way. So here is my take.



 This was the first one I tried. Just remember you can't do this to the large stars as you can't fit it through the Big Shot. Ask me how I know??


Here are both boxes. They are both the same size. The Window Sheet swings to either side to add your treats and then keeps them in the box. LeeAnn is a GENIUS!

I used the Merry Everything Bundle, which is a stamp set and the Note Tag Punch.
I added the Frosted Sequins to the tag too.
Now, don't you want to play too! Click HERE! to join the fun!

Wondrous Wreath Card


This was another Club Card for this month. I totally cased it from Pinterest.



I love how this card looks like a front door, don't you? The background stamp is Hardwood and you can find it on page 175 of the big catalog. When you have a stamp that is large the best way to ink it up is to take the ink pad to the stamp. Lay your cardstock on top and put a piece of scratch paper on top of that and rub. This way you won't get any ink on your hands and you can get the full image.
The Wondrous Wreath Stamp set has matching Framelits and you can get the bundle for 15% Off. The Noel  & Joy are also in the framelits. I used one of the Neutral Candy Dots for the "door" handle. 
You can see the dimension in this photo.


 I know you are going to want to know how to cut the top of the card....its so easy. Use your Oval Framelits. When you roll it through the Big Shot, only go till you've cut through the top piece. If you go all the way you will have a crease that you don't want.
This is a little bit closer. Again, don't go all the way through.

Can You Say Pomegranates?

 Our poor Pomegranate tree it was so heavy with fruit it was slitting in two. My husband had to tie a rope to keep it all together.
 You can see it a little better in this photo. This "tree" started out as a slip from a floral teacher I was taking classes from many years ago. We kept it as a bush for a long time, then my husband said, lets let it get really tall. I really think he just didn't want to trim it..........hahaha! Its really not in the right place to be a tree. You couldn't even get up the deck stairs without getting hit by a pomegranate.
 Jesse is watching me pick all of the pomegranates.
 These are just the bags I picked. When my husband came home, he picked the ones I couldn't reach. We thought we were going to get a lot of rain that night (wishful thinking), and the pomegranates were just starting to split so we better get them all picked. I lost count after 125......this was a bumper crop!
We have quite a few that are this size.

Do you know how to seed a Pomegranate? The best way I found was to cut in half, and use a big bowl of cool water. If you submerge the pomegranate in the water, and break apart the seeds, the seeds sink to the bottom and the pith floats on top.  You also don't get red fingers....I love to freeze them in snack baggies and then eat them for a snack.

I will be posting another card tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Club Card

This is one version of the card we made this month in Stamp Club. I used the Moonlight dsp Paper Stack. Love the colors in this dsp .
You might notice the raised hearts. I saw this on the Stampin' Up! Blog and loved it. I used the Hearts Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste to make the background.
The heart is embossed with the Filigree Frame Embossing Folder. A couple of the gals even embossed the Scalloped Hello Honey Piece. I wish I had done that!

Here is what I used to make these cards: click on the right side to get the slider bar to see everything. The you can click on any of the items and it will take you to my Online Store.

I also used Embossing Paste which is not a Stampin' Up! product. I purchased mine at my local Scrapbook store.

Creative Challenge Club, Happy Birthday

You know what day it is, right? Yep, time for another Creative Challenge Club Card. (Say that fast 10 times....)

 I love how the embossed dots mimic the dsp, don't you? This is a really simple card to put together. Like 5 minutes. I used the half doily for the half circle in the sketch.
 Added my two (layer) butterfly using paper from the same Moonlight paper stack.
The sentiment just fits in between the dots on the dsp. 

Now, don't you want to play along? Click HERE!

Here is what I used:

Snowflake Card

I love this die, the Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies. It comes with lots of other "goodies" besides the card die. This is another card we made in stamp club this month.


We used the All is Calm Specialty dsp. These colors are so soothing.......
The snowflakes are part of the die. So delicate. Tip: add a layer of wax paper between the die and the glimmer paper, run it back and forth a couple of times. If you are using cardstock or dsp, it comes out very easily, but I wanted the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. So worth the trouble. Also the Silver and Black Snowflake has a little hook on one of the points, I just used wire cutters to cut off the hook. Glued it on with a glue dot. You can't even tell that I cut the hook off.
You might be wondering why my card is so "short"? I turned the 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock so it went the other way.

You can see what I mean in the photo above. Now when you run it through the Big Shot, you only run it past the snowflake as the right side is ABOVE the die. If you run it all the way through you will have a crease or fold line where you don't want. After you put it through the Big Shot then score at 4" from the side that DIDN'T go through the Big Shot. Clear as mud?? Email me if you have any questions.

Here is a list of all the items I used. You can click on each one and it will take you to my Online Store, 24/7.
