Stampin' Up Scentsational Seasons Stamp Set and matching Framelits

Hi - it's been a while, and Hurricane Sandy is about to do her worst.  If the predictions are right, we will be without power for an extended time.  So I thought I better sneak in a blog post since I am sure internet service will be out even longer.

I made this card for the Stampin' Diva's monthly swap:

Not bad for a quick snap with my iPhone 4S, is it?

Here are the deets:

Accessories:Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks – In Color, Soft Subtles;  ¾” Sweater Trim – Whisper White; Basic Rhinestones;  Crystal Effects;  TIEF – Lacy Brocade;  Framelits – Window Frame, Holiday Collection; Stampin’ Dimensionals; Glue Dots

I hope you all are safe!

Rubber hugs,

Halloween with Stampin' Up Wicked Cool Stamp Set

I made these cute little lip gloss holders for everyone who came to my Stampin' Up event last month:

They were so easy to make - all it took was a strip of card stock, add a strip of Designer Series Paper, score and fold to make the little purse, the add ribbon and the stamped image.  Very easy, but very cute and impressive.  I forgot to take pictures until I was ready to leave, so I did not get the details like I should have.

Here is my supply & tool list:
Stamp Set:  Wicked Cool
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Basic Back, Whisper White, Designer Series Paper - Howlstooth & Scaringbone (2012 Holiday Catalog)
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Ribbon - Striped Satin (2012 Holiday Catalog) Pearls (painted black with a permanent marker); Stampin' Dimensionals; Punches - Oval Scallop, Large Oval, Scallop Trim Border.

So how is that for a cute little gift that doesn't require many supplies or tools?  I will try to do some Christmas ones and post a tutorial in a week or two.

Blog Candy Winner!
