Black Friday!

I love the theme to this week's Sisters In Stamping project!  In honor of Black Friday, we made projects featuring the color black.

When I think of Black Friday, I of course think of shopping!  I couldn't resist making this cute little purse:

I used a Sizzix die I've had to create custom purses for customers.  I love how this turned out.

First, I cut out the purse using the Winter Wonderland Specialty Design Series Paper and assembled it.  Then, I pulled out my Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper.  I could stare at this paper all day - I LOVE it!  I put a couple drops of Memento Tuxedo Black reinker on a Stamping Sponge and dabbed over an area of the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper.  I set it aside to dry.

After it dried (give it a a long time or you'll end up with very messy fingers!), I cut out the largest Deco Label die and punched out some snowflakes with my Snow Flurry punch.  I then cut out a smaller Deco Label die and punched some more snowflakes on the regular Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper.

I adhered the Deco Label pieces together using my Tombow Liquid Glue and set aside to dry.  I adhered the snowflake pieces with the Tombow too.  While they were drying, I wrapped the White
Glitter Ribbon around the purse.  Once they were dry, I popped up the snowflakes using a dimensional.  I then punched a whole on the top of the label and ran the glitter ribbon through it so I could tie a bow.  I put dimensionals on the back on the label piece to adhere to the flap of the purse.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I put a regular Rhinestone in the middle of the snowflake.  Funny that it looks dull and black in the picture, but in person, it sparkles with the rest of the project.

Since I love glittery things, I love how this turned out.  Loved this theme!  Check out what the Sisters In Stamping created here.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Christmas Ornament

This week's Sisters In Stamping project is to create a Christmas ornament.

I couldn't wait to use all of my new holiday catalog goodies!

I created this ornament using the Holiday Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Red Foil Sheets, and Gold Foil Sheets.  I cut out the papers using the Deco Labels Framlits.  The word "Noel" is cut out from the Wreath framelit set.  I also used my new gold glitter ribbon!  The back is exactly the same as the front, so if it moves on the tree, you'll still see it from any angle!  I can't wait to hang it this year.

Thanks so much for looking.  Please check out what ornaments the Sisters In Stamping made!

Thanksgiving Favor

I am truly thankful to continue to be a guest designer for the Sisters In Stamping ladies for two more months.  

This week the Sisters In Stamping decided on making Thanksgiving favors.  I love this idea because you can turn them into place settings on the Thanksgiving table as well!

This is what I chose to make:

I used the new SU! square pillow box thinlit die to make this.  It's very quick and easy to make, especially using the Into The Woods Designer Series Paper.  I used the cut out the little leaves using a cute little thinlit that comes with the pillow box die.  I decided the leaves didn't look good by themselves, so I cut out some acorns from the scrap paper.  The beautiful sentiment is from the Six Saying Hostess set.  I just love it - so beautiful!
