Merry Little Christmas

Once Halloween is over, watch out, because all the stores will be filled with Christmas.  Some of them already are.  Costco has had their stuff out for at least a month, if not longer already.

So, let me add another Christmas Card to the blog.  I love the colors Stampin' Up has put together for us to use.  While there are two sets of color styles for Christmas, I have to say I'm a traditionalist and prefer the reds and greens in Season of Style.  

Today's card is very easy to do.  See what you think.

Wobble Wobble

We had a great birthday party at the office on Tuesday and this is the card I gave to the birthday girl.  Now, you may say, it looks like a very ordinary card, and you'd be right until....


You open the card and look inside....still ordinary you say?  Dimensionals popping it up?  NOPE!  Think again.



Do not adjust your screens and don't call the paramedics, you aren't having a dizzy spell.  You are seeing the inside of a card with the sentiment popped up with a Wobble Spring!  I wish you could see it in person wiggling and wobbling around.  So much fun!


Here's what the little gem looks like.  I wish it was a Stampin' up treat, but it's not, at least not yet, maybe SU will love it and start to let us sell them.  LOL.  I found these by taking an online card class with fun techniques.  When I saw this, I just had to have them!


Here you can see how it looks under the sentiment.  Just peel away the paper and stick them on.


Look for more cards using these.  They're just too cute not to play with.

Here's my recipe for the rest of the card.

I Want My Mummy

Last Halloween card, I promise... 

Frankie needed a friend, so I went looking and found his Mummy!  Groan... I know.

Using the same sized punches that I used for Frankie's eyes as well as the same Circle Card Thinlits, I made Mummy by covering a piece of Very Vanilla (5 1/2" x 6") card stock with torn strips of Very Vanilla and sponged with Soft Suede.  I punched out one large eye from Whisper White (2 1/2" Circle) and two more eyes from Whisper White using the 1 3/8" Circle and three Basic Black 3/4" Circles. 

Inside I punched from Basic Black a 1 3/4" Scallop Circle and stamped "it's all about the candy" onto Very Vanilla with Gumball Green and punched out with 1 3/8" Circle Punch.

Very simple and very cute!





Stamps Well With Others Recipe:

Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink:  Soft Suede, Gumball Green
Stamps:  Halloween Hello (w-131718 / c-131721)
Punches:  2 1/2" Circle (120906), 1 3/8" Circle (119860), 3/4" Circle (119873), 1 3/4" Scallop Circle
Extra's:  Lots of SNAIL adhesive  (104332) 

Thanks for looking in today.  I hope you're ready for all the little munchkins that will be coming to your house this week looking for a Trick or Treat!

Label Framelit Window Card - Santa's List

Time for another Christmas Card.  I just love this Santa set.  He's just so old-fashioned looking and he doesn't require any coloring!  Just stamp him with the perfect color - in this case - Cherry Cobbler.

The idea from this card comes from Dawn Olchefske and a swap she received and modified from Founders Circle.  

I chose Santa's List for my card and added the Merry from the Expressions Thinlits Die.  You'll see here I tried it with two different sizes from the Labels Collection Framelits.  I believe the first card looks the best, with the bigger "window".  I also like the sentiment frame on the first one better.  The other one is too big and bulky for my taste.



Here they are side by side.  Which do you prefer?


The Santa is actually stamped on the "inside" of the card, but doing it this way there really isn't any place to write a Christmas greeting, so I did what Dawn did and made the inside a 2-page insert - basically a smaller card inside the bigger card so there's plenty of writing space.  I also added an inside sentiment to mine, since there's such a great one that goes with this stamp set.



Thanks to Dawn for sharing her card.  I sure love how this turned out!

Stamps Well With Others Recipe:

Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"), Very Vanilla (8" x 5 1/4", scored at 4"), Gold Foil Sheets (132622)

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler
Stamps:  Santa's List (w-131808 / c-131811)
Extras:  Labels Collection Framelits (125598), Expressions Thinlits Dies (132171)

Double Double Flip Flip

After making Frankie yesterday, I started playing with turning the Circle Flip Thinlits card over and upside down and wondered if they would fit together - guess what!!!  They DO!

Here's what I came up with - I'm really tickled with how it came out.  What do you think?


You can do it too.  It really is very easy.  Here's a little guide to help you:








Easy Peasy!  See below for full details on what I used.  The finished size of this card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" which means it will need a special envelope.  No problem though with our sweet little Envelope Punch Board (133774).

Frankie Flips for Halloween

Halloween is only a week away and I was done making Halloween cards... until today, when I saw several adorable cards using the Circle Card Thinlits Die.  Here's one of them - I just couldn't resist giving this guy a try!

Isn't he just adorable!?  Here's how to make him:

Begin with Gumball Green card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and place it onto the Circle Card Thinlits Die.  You will have left-over card stock - use it for punching out his nose.

Using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch - punch 2 from Whisper White and then using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch - punch out 2 more from Whisper White.  Using the 3/4" Circle Punch - punch out 3 for his eyes from Basic Black.  You'll also punch out 3/4" Circle from the Gumball Green.  Sponge the edges of his nose with Gumball Green too.

Cut a piece of Basic Black 4 1/4" x 1 1/2" and then snip with scissors to make his hair.  

Draw on his scar and smile with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and add highlights to his eyes (all three of them) with the White Signo Gel Pen.


I stamped the inside sentiment with Gumball Green from Halloween Hello onto Whisper White.  Punched it out with the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle and punch out a larger scallop from Gumball Green using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch.

Attach the hair to just the first panel so that you can open the card.

Do you notice anything different about the design of this die cut?  Post a message and let me know if you see it!

Card Stock:  Gumball Green, Whisper White, Basic Black

Stamps:  Halloween Hello (w-131718 / c-131721)
