Fabulous Fall tiles and wine charms

I used "French Foliage" stamp set from Stampin Up Holiday mini to stamp on tiles with craft ink.

Here is a clear shot of tile.  I decided to keep it clean and simple, with some rock and roll technique to get multiple colors for leaf.

I have showed these wine bottle toppers before.  I used the same "french foliage" stamp set to stamp on shrink plastic to make wine charms.  So fun I just stamped in craft ink and cut around image, punched with CAD- then used my heat gun to melt them.

get well 411 style

A friend just had surgery and I wanted to send her a card.  I am really digging this "blueberry crisp" dsp from Stampin Up, I used that and Stamping 411 sketch this week.  The stamp set is Pun Fun, I used Stampin Up's markers to watercolor him on watercolor paper.

hiding out in craft room

One week to go until craft fair, so I apologize that I have not been regularly posting.   But as title says I have been bunkered down trying to get projects completed to sell.  Not to mention- what a complete mess! I will have to take some photos of my creations.

This is a quick and easy coaster tile I did. I used Christmas Cardinal with black stazon and colored in with chalk pastels and then set it with some acrylic spray.

I have some cool fall -Thanksgiving things to show too!  Okay, back to the mess....

quick and simple cards

I have some quick and simple cards to share today.  Who doesn't love that?  These cards take under 10 minutes to make, quicker then heading out to buy one.

I made this card last week for one of my son's team mates who got taken off the field via ambulance (always scary as a parent).  Thankfully he was alright but will be out of practice for awhile, I had the players sign it to cheer him up.

I make all the teacher birthday cards at my son's school.  I got this idea from somebody (I can't recall)- to use the birthday hat from sock monkey set and put it on two-punch owl.

more craft fair item to share-Snowman crimped envelope

Still busy crafting- even though you never know what might sell.  Craft fairs can be hit or miss, my plan is to keep most items under $5 to lure some buyers in.
  This is a crimped envelope holder, which I am putting in some cocoa mix.  The tutorial is from splitcoasters here.  I just chose to add a punched snowman for the face.

Here's another item I made for upcoming craft fair.  Stampin Up has these great a la carte stamps under $10.  I got the "tooth fairy" for $7.95 added extra- large scallop punch and a little bling with rhinestone half back jewels.

Masculine birthday card

Yesterday was my F.I.L birthday.  Of course my husband asks me at last minute if I have a card for him.  So using Stamping 411 sketch this week and a retired set from Stampin Up called "Sporting goods" I came up with this card.  Tough to tell but all the sports balls are cut out and on dimensionals.

My father in law or "Pa" as my boys call him, has always been great to come watch all the boys sporting events, so I thought this card was fitting to show that.

birthday build a bear

I did a birthday for a 6 year old girl today and these were the projects we made using build a bear die for big shot and Stampin up magnetic sheets.  The dvd tin holds a mini gel pen and pad of paper.

They did an awesome job!
