Inspired by Nature scrap page

This page is cased from the Art from the heart CD.  This CD was available to demos who went to convention in the Momento Mall.   I don't know who the original designer is- but a big Thanks goes out to her!

I mentioned this scrap page in a previous post.  CLICK HERE to see how to make the flower with owning the Pretties kit.

Paper: Whisper white, black, bashful blue dsp
Ink: black
Accessories:  Black chunky sprinkles, mono multi liquid glue, 1" circle punch, pretties kit, black grosgrain and bashful blue taffeta ribbon.  


WOW Flowers

I was going for the look of creating Designer Paper- with glitter.  Similar to what they are making with some of the new Papertreyink sets.   This techniques would work great with the Baroque motif medallions.   I did use the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the perfect line up of the flowers.  I also drew, then erased, very faint grid lines with a pencil, using the Stampin' Up! grid paper as a guide.  This was time consuming, but its sooooo pretty in real life.  Each of the flower centers has glitter. I love the simplicity of it.  

This card is featured in my new card kit of the month for September.  CLICK HERE to see the details.

Stamps:  Wow Flowers
Paper: Brocade Blue, Whisper white, Regal rose
Ink: Brocade Blue, Regal Rose 
Accessories:  New largest oval punch, large oval punch, regal rose wide ribbon, brad, slot punch, stamp-a-ma-jig, dazzling diamonds glitter


Eastern Blooms treat bag

I LOVE THIS!  Its a Lunch bag, yes the cheap ones from the grocery store, with the top note window cut through it.  I added acetate to create the window.  Tell me- won't these be awesome for the holidays?????  Ummmm- YES!

So I had no "real treats" to put in the bag last night so I went with dog treats. its a disconnect from the Eastern Blooms- imagine really fattening cookies in there.    The back part of the lunch bag gets crumpled when cranking it through the Big Shot, so the bag lost some of its "stiffness".  I am sure that's partly due to the fact that these are very inexpensive lunch bags.  

I stuck the XL Top Note die in the middle of the bag, lined it up and centered it on the die as best I could and then ran it through the Big Shot.  Adhered acetate to create the window.  The bag is stamped in Eastern Blooms, with red craft ink.  The centers of the flowers were doodled with a Stampin' Up white gel pen.  

I take no credit for this idea.  Its was 100% cased from HERE

I am now forming a 2nd Big Shot club.  Have my projects inspired you?  The Big Shot Club details are HERE.  Email me if yo want to join.  Lots of freebies and hostess benefits too!

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Say it with Scallops
Paper:  brown paper lunch bag
Ink:  Real Red craft, Real Red classic
Accessories:  acetate, striped ribbon, dog treats, Stampin' Up! Exclusive top note die, scallop square punch


Its a Celebration...

I made this to highlight the Big Shot (I used the Top Note XL die) and for the Creative challenge on Shelli's blog.  Each month Shelli, the CEO and co-founder of Stampin' Up! has a creative challenge.  Here is my submission for her "Celebrate" challenge.

It was a fun morning at the bus stop this past Monday.  The smiles were big for both the kids and the parents.  LOL

Stamps: Celebrate Everything, Best Yet (hostess)
Paper:  Whisper White, Pacific Point, Bashful blue DSP
Ink:  Pacific Point
Accessories:  Pacific Point striped ribbon, rhinestone brad, new largest oval punch, slot punch.

Big Shot Party hats

Stampin Up! Exclusive pennant dies-- made into party hats.  The one below uses the smaller die and makes a perfect size hat for a Webkinz pet.  

I had my daughter design her own.  Can you tell?  

We were a little off of the measurements to have the hat fit so we put some eyelets on the side and some thin ribbon for the chin tie.  

I lined up the paper - My daughter worked the Big Shot.  This toy is very kid friendly (if you need and excuse to buy it of course!) 

Recipe:  Lots of paper (double sided because you can see inside the hat) and some ribbon.  No stamping here!  I used the Mono multi liquid glue to adhere the pennants together.


Happiness Gift set

Stinking cute gift set- Don't ya Think?  The bag is from a project made a convention.  The card is 100% cased (copied & selectively edit) from THIS CARD from Cindy Beach.   In this case 95% copied.  I changed a few little elements and then made this adorable gift bag to match. 

Stamps:  happiness background, Fresh Cuts
Paper:  Whisper white, bella rose, baja blue
Ink:  red riding hood
Accessories:  filigree brads, boho blossoms punch, 3 for you flower punch, The top note Big shot die, brads, paper piercer, pink pirouette wide ribbon.  


Do you like Inspired by Nature?

A small break from The Big Shot....YES I do like this set.  But I am not using it on this card/post.

This card was inspired by the set.

Step 1 :  Punch a scallop circle.  crumple it up as best you can.
Step 2:  Un-crumple and fold in half, snip into the scallops to form petals
Step 3:  Punch 2 black 1 inch circles, trim the bottom edges to make it straight
Step 4 :  cover 1 circle with Mono Multi liquid glue and add Black Chunky Sprinkles glitter and let dry
Step 5:  Attach to flower, add stem
Step 6:  create card

You can do this exact same flower using the large flower from the pretties kit as well.  I have a really cute scrap page to share using that style flower...stay tuned.

Stamps:  Punches Three (hostess), itty bitty backgrounds
Paper:  Pacific point, Whisper white, black, celery, kiwi kiss, bashful blue

Inspired by Nature

I just love this stamp set!  So easy to work with.  I used cameo coral and really rust for the flower using sponge daubers to apply the ink to the stamp.  I used celery for the grass and old olive, again with the dauber, for the stem and leaves.  All supplies are Stampin' Up!

For the Little Baby Boy

Mary Polcin, the 1st woman from Stampin' Up! to cross $1 million in career sales, presented at convention.  She showed us how she presents at a workshop, the process of taking a 6x6 page and building it into a 12x12 page.  A concept that is not new I know- I have been in the gallery for this over at Splitcoast!  I have never tried it until now.  What a challenge for me...but hey all scrapping is a challenge for me!

Why this?  I had a workshop yesterday and she requested baby items and a scrap page (The hostess' sister had her baby boy 5 weeks early).  I just love the outcome!  and if you have never tried it you should.  This was hard for me!  but I loved the challenge and I am sure to do it again!
not to mention I dug out the sweetest pictures of my oldest son, who is now 10, of the 1st days he was born.  Nice memories for sure!

Lets start with the 6x6 (they made this component at the workshop)

and the 8x11 base
and now the two together
And here is the 12x12 base:
the 8.5x11 page and the 12x12 page together:

And now the full 12x12 page:

Wonderful Flowers

This card was one that the ladies made at a workshop before I left for convention.  I forgot that I did not post it.  Its really beautiful in person and luckily it fits the challenge submitted by Nicole.  Flowers and 6x3 in Size.

Thanks Nicole!
I stamped a 2nd set of flowers, cut them out, curled the edges slightly and then added dazzling diamonds for some bling.

Stay tuned for a few more challenges.  I have already made 2 new projects from the comments left.  Very Fun! and like other challenges out there they make you think outside the box.  Some of the stamps mentioned I do not own, but I will improvise so you can easily transfer it to the set you do have.  Thanks ....its nice to dust off a few sets!

All Supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamps:Wonderful You
Paper: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, whisper white

Challenge Me!

I am looking for a challenge.  Knowing we are just days away for a new catalog and new accessories, which by the way are fabulous, I thought I should dust off a few sets I already own to revive them and pay attention to them.

Post a comment here and tell me what stamp set you want me to "dust off" and make a card with.  I may not have all of them, but I have a nice collection of stamps.  *wink*

Thanks in advance for Challenging me!


mmmmmm, chocolate!

So I still have not seen my stamp room yet....I know can you believe there are new stamps in my house and I have not inked them up.  GASP!!!  

Anyway I am so proud of this book I figured I would share.  During Convention I was paired up with a team mate to be her secret sister.  I emailed her and asked her her favorite dessert.  Below is a cookbook with 10 Chocolate Pie recipes that I made with my bind it all and stamped with her favorite set, Baroque Motifs.  In addition to this cookbook, she got a whole bag of hand made goodies and 1 each of my swap cards.

the above page is a pocket to add additional recipes.  I have no idea if the recipes are any good- but this sure was fun to make.
