Shake, shake, shake...

Who doesn't love a shaker card?  I have always loved them!  But, they are kind of a pain to make!  LOL!

This week, we made shaker cards.  I first made one, but then realized it just didn't work.  So, I had to start all over again!  But, I loved how this one turned out, if I do say so myself ;)

This is the Christmas shaker card I made:

I used the Festive Farmhouse DSP to start.  Then, I used the Coffee Cafe Thinlits to die cut the coffee cup, sleeve, and lid.  On the sleeve, I used the oval thinlit to cut out the window.  I placed a small piece of Window Sheet and glued it in place.  Then, I used the Foam adhesive strips to hold in the little beads.

The sentiment is from the Cookie Cutter Christmas set.  I punched it and some matching Mellow Moss cardstock using the Pretty Label Punch.  I then tied some bows using the Cherry Cobbler Twine and glued them all down.

I think this will be a fun Christmas card to give to a coffee lover!

Holiday Catty CASE

Happy Friday!  Today, we are CASEing something from the SU! Holiday Catalog.  There were so many choices, but I finally settled on the little Santa bags featured on pag 18.

This is what I made using the adorable little Santa's Bags.

I stamped the Candy Canes, "For You",  and Tag items using the Candy Cane Season Stamps and Signs of Santa Stamps. I used the Candy Cane punch as well.  To make the tag, I stamped the Ho!Ho!Ho! all on a piece of Very Vanilla, lining up the Hos!  Then, I just used my Trimmer to cut the tag into a size I thought that would work.  I stamped the items in Garden Green and Poppy Parade.  Although the colors are a little different, I used the Festive Farmhouse Twine to attach the tag to the bag.

Below is the one from the catalog that I CASEd.  Check out the other CASEs here.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!

A Halloween Treat

Who doesn't love the treats at Halloween?  I'm a sucker for Halloween candy!  I tried not to buy candy early this year, but having to wait 15 minutes at Target Pharmacy did me in - LOL! 

This week, we are making Halloween treats!  This is the little treat box I made! 

I was finally able to use my Petite Treat Framelit.  I made the little treat box using Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment (from the Itty Bitty Greetings set) on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I punched it and a piece of Basic Black cardstock using the Duet Banner Punch. 

I made my little mummy using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I punched out a couple pieces of Whisper White.  I glued them together.  Then, I took some gauze from my medicine kit and started wrapping my mummy.  I added some googly eyes, and my mummy came alive!

I used double sticky red tape to attach my mummy to the treat box and then adhered the banner sentiment over top of the mummy using some glue.

It's a spooky cute treat, right?

Hop on over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to see what other treats were made!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Go ahead and embellish...

...a card, that is!  Don't embellish the truth ;)

This week, Karla asked us to use our favorite embellishment on our project.  This was really hard for me because I LOVE embellishments almost as much as I love designer papers!  OH, and I love, love, love ribbon!  OK, I seriously love embellishments!

But, I am a sucker for anything that can self stick!  This year, SU! has some metallic (gold and silver) pearl embellishments and I really do love them.  I think I used almost all of the silver ones on my card!  LOL!

I first ran a piece of black cardstock through the new Tufted Dynamic embossing folder.  I then adhered it to a Gorgeous Grape base.  I wanted to use my new Darling Label set/punch, so I chose the birthday stamp, inked it up in Gorgeous Grape, stamped it, punched it out, adhered it to the card, and tied a piece of Gorgeous Grape striped mini ribbon around the top.  Then, I got busy placing the silver metallic pearls in the diamond intersections.  It was a little tedious, but I think well worth it. 

Let's see what the other ladies embellished their cards with!  Check it out!
