Love You Much

This is a card that I made to send to my hubby who is overseas. I tried to make it a little more masculine but not so sure that worked. I used the Friends 24/7 set and the Well Scripted set from the occasions mini catalog. I also used crystal effects and dazzling diamonds on the kraft part of the card and a hat pin out of the Pretties Kit. I hope this inspires you!

Mojo Monday

This is the card I did for this week's mojo monday sketch challenge. I used the French Script stamp set, the Teeny Tiny Wishes, lattice die and the scallp circle punch. The flower is the circle scallop punch. I punched out 5 of them and punched a whole in the center to put a brad through. Once they are attached, just crinkle them up til you are satisfied and put a button in the middle.

Vintage Valentine

This is a card I did using the Vintage Vogue set out of the new Occasions Mini. I think it could be used as a valentine. The card base is Whisper White with a Basic Black Layer. Then I used black embossing powder on Sahara Sand and on Whisper White for the flower. I embossed the saying in white on the Basic Black Layer.

Post It Note Holders

These are 2 post-it note holders I made with the directions from The are super easy and make great little gifts. The green one uses the Medallion stamp set and certainly celery paper. The pink one uses a flower and pearl from the Pretties kit and a saying from the Short & Sweet stamp set.

Quilted bags

Today I have some quilted bags that I made for gift bags. The original idea came from a Stampin' Up publication a few months ago. It is made with top note dies. There were no instructions so it was mostly trial and error and I think all of them were made a little different...hehe. I am going to try and get a tutorial together to post later. I just need to get the dimensions perfect.

Cookie Boxes

These are cookie boxes I made for my husband's work. 22 in all!!! I put 2 cookies and some candy canes in each one. They loved them. The snowflakes are from the Big Shot Snowflake die and the holly leaves I drew and then traced onto DSP.

Stenciled Frame

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Today I have a stenciled frame I did for a craft show. This was also inspired by a tutorial given by Kimberly Van Diepen @ She uses stencil paste but I had a hard time finding it so I found that joint compound from your local home store does the same trick. I simply bought a $2 frame and stained it. Then I took the stencil and laid it on the frame and took a knife and covered it with joint compound. I let it dry for a while then sponged it and added a little glitter.
