Grab bag snowman

Back in the spring- SU had some grab bag deals- for $5 or $15.  It was some simply scrappin kits and precut cardstock, ribbon, etc...  I got this precut card stock and figured it worked well with Christmas theme.  It almost was like "chopped" for stamping- here are your ingredients come up with a card.

Luckily, the snow much fun stamp set image fit pretty close in the white.  I used this card for a recent stamp a stack.  I wanted to showcase some new Holiday mini products:
1) punched out "snowball" in silver glimmer paper
2) used dazzling details around snowman body

morning cup tea-riffic

I love the designer series paper in Stampin Up's Holiday mini catalog called "spice cake".  I used it for my inspiration for this card using stamp set called Morning cup.  I water colored the images using markers and did a little paper piercing.  Fall weather just makes you want more warm beverages.

sweet pressed cookies

I ordered these sweet pressed cookies- and so much fun- stamping and baking.  Kids would love this.

You make your favorite sugar or short bread cookie recipe from scratch or box and chill dough.  Then rolls into 1.5 inch balls and them press the the cookie press with your choice of design into the dough. (kids would love this)
So this was after I pressed them out.

This was after they were baked, they come out huge!  And in words of Rachel Ray "yumm-o".

A quick share of one of the items I am making for upcoming craft fair on October 29th.  I used kidoodles stamp set and RMDH stamp set turtle and Co.

Super simple to do, directions:

Card stock measures 9.25 x 4.25
score at 3.25 and 3.75 inches
use brads to secure.

It would be great for hot cocoa packet too.

Birthday stamp a stack shares

Today some of my fellow demo friends were suppose to have a SU yard sale, but of course the weather did not cooperate with us.  We are also doing a craft fair in Holliston October 29th, so I have been busy preparing for both of those events.  I will post some of my craft fair creations for you next week.

Today, I thought I share some easy simple birthday cards I did for a recent birthday stamp a stack the local school asked me to help out with for all the teachers birthdays.  I am sure I cased more than one of them, so I apologize for not giving credit if I did.

1) using RMDH stamp set-"Turtle & Co".  The dsp is retired, I was using up a lot of my retired items, as it was for a school I only charged $1 per card to cover my supply cost.

2) crazy for cupcakes stamp set and some dsp from SAB this year- to get my color palette

3) Baroque motifs and white gel pen, bad photo though, the main cardbase is razzleberry and it looks more like burgundy.

4) Lovely as a tree- my go to stamp set for masculine cards

5) Trendy trees and big shot top note
