Hey Chick - Sneak Peek

I can hardly wait for my pre-order to arrive with my Occasions Catalog goodies and my Sale-a-Bration freebie called Hey Chick.  Isn't this just the cutest chicken you've ever seen?

On Monday night, our weSTAMP Team had our annual Christmas Party and we were able to use this for one of our Make and Takes.  I just love it!


Did you know YOU could also order fun new things a month before everyone else, when you become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and join my team?  Now is the perfect time to join with the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration about to begin and while the Holiday Catalog is still live.  Great deals with your Demonstrator discounts!

Interested?  Questions?  Just give me a call or send me an email.  I'd love to have you on my team!


Thank you for looking in today.  Happy Hump Day!

Simple Christmas Stars

So simple, yet so pretty!  Too bad the pictures don't show how nice the sparkle is.



Recipe:
Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock 5 1/4" x 4"
Red Glimmer Paper - scrap big enough to adhere behind the smallest star
Silver Glimmer Paper - scrap big enough to adhere behind the smallest star
Stars Framelits - smallest star
Gold Baker's Twine (from Baker's Twine Trio Pack)

Stamps:  Star of Light (Holiday Catalog)
Real Red - Ink


I used scotch tape to hold the Baker's Twine through the star to the back and then tied the 2nd piece of Baker's Twine around the first one.  I tried using glue dots to attach the bow and it tends to come off.  Tying it on works the best.


Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Tuesday!

Christmas Magic - updated!

Today's card is a re-arranged cased card from Joyce Whitman.  I spotted it on Pinterest and loved the clean lines and just had to give it a go.  I rearranged the layout and used a different sentiment stamp.  Trust me, finding a sentiment to fit into that little space was tough.  Thankfully I had a couple of friends over that had some sets that I didn't have so we found something that would work.



Recipe:

Crumb Cake - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
   (or 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2")
Real Red - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White 5 1/4" x 4" (inside)

Pieces and Parts:

Whisper White - 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" (snowman)
Crumb Cake - 2 3/4" x 2" (snowman)

Whisper White - 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" (bell)
Crumb Cake - 2" x 2" (bell)

Whisper White - 1 1/2" x 1 1/4" (sentiment)
Crumb Cake - 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" (sentiment)

Designer Series Paper DSP - 2 3/4" x 1 1/4"
Crumb Cake (3" x 1 1/2")



The snowman, stamped with Black Memento ink, is colored with Real Red, Pool Party, Garden Green, Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie).  You should be able to click on the picture and have it open in a bigger format, easier to see.

The bell is stamped with Crumb Cake and the sentiment with Real Red.



** Outside sentiment (which I forgot to list originally) is from Hang Your Stocking.  Thank you Linda for noticing!

Inside the sentiments come from Tin of Tags and Snow Place.

Thank you for looking in today.  It was sure fun to be able to stamp again and be creative without being so tired I just wanted to sleep!

Have a Blessed Sunday!  ~ Donna

Cookie Cutter Reindeer

This card can't be any easier!  It took more time getting my glue bottle to cooperate than it did to stamp and punch these reindeer!


Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Crumb Cake - Reindeer stamped with Early Espresso
Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper - 5 1/2" x 1 1/2" and 6" x 2 1/2" (for flap)




Thank you for looking in today.  I'll be out looking for a new stove.  Ugh!!!  Thankfully I have overtime pay from these last couple of months of election work.  I was hoping to hang on to it a bit longer, but having a safe stove is so much more important.  Sigh...

Happy Friday!  ~ Donna
