Ths flower was.punchec using the trip punch in 3 different shades of orange(pumpkin pie, tangelo twist and tangerine tango card stock).

Cute Gift Bags(Curvy Keepsake Box Die)

I have been seeing many of these on the interest and decided to give it a try...they are so easy and made using the Stampin' Up! Big Shot die Curvy Keepsakes Box. I added a few punch embellishments,and some Hershey's Kisses inside and there you have it. I think I sold about 30 of these at 2 of our local craft fairs. I hope everyone enjoyed them.  Christa

Curled Paper Christmas Trees

 I had seen an idea of a curled paper tree, so I gave it a shot. Here I used Calm Christmas DSP by Stampin' Up!. It took about 7 sheets for both trees. I adhered them using straight pins and styrofoam trees that I bought at ACMoore.

I then thought it needed something on the top so I used my coordinating Seam Binding Ribbon in Soft Sky and made 2 bows with I pinned to the top!

I hope you like them, since they were one of a kind and I sold them at the local craft fair that I was a vendor at!

Here is the invitation I made Nicholas to give to his friends for his 8th birthday celebration. I used the Boys will be Boys clear mounted stamp set with Marina Mist as my card base. I then added a layer for Real Red and then stamped my images with Stazon Ink on Whisper White card stock and colored them in using an aqua painter and ink by "kissing the ink pad". I then cut another strip of real red and Old Olive and used my Banner Punch for the ends to make them pointed. Nicholas LOVED them and so did his friends!! He had a great birthday celebration with 2 of his friends, one stayed the night. They had popcorn, watched a movie, played with some birthday toys and just ran around the house! BOYS MUST BE BOYS! LOL

Enjoy, thank you for stopping in.

Happy Birthday

Here is a card that I made for my sister's birthday. She loves the antique feeling of cards and I thought I could incorporate that into my card. I used some retired DSP that I had on hand. I used the new Blackberry Bliss Ink and card stock on top of the DSP. I also used the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set with Memento Ink. Colored it in with the Blendabilities Markers. The background leaves are from the stamp set Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set.  I hope you like it! Thank you for stopping in. Christa
