Spinner Card Get Well
Spinner cards are so much fun! They are perfect for children because their "spinning" action can be enjoyed for the life of the card. I will be posting a video to my YouTube channel very soon on how to do a Spinner Card, but it's actually quite simple! There are a few things you will need to create this awesome project.
Word Window Punch
Lots of Dimensionals
A "spinable" item - in this case I used the Pansy Punch
The cardstock, Designer Series Paper and stamp sets are all subjective and can be any of your choosing. I took a piece of Gingham Garden DSP and snailed it to the front of a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Then taking my Word Window Punch I slid the punch in the whole way so you can feel it hit the back of the punch at the center of my cardstock (watch the video for detailed instructions) Move the punch over to either side lining up the DSP with the edge of the punch to ensure an even punch. Take one of your pennies and put a dimensional in the middle of it, then without removing the backing, put it through the punched whole so the dimensional is now exposed on the FRONT SIDE of your cardstock. Remove the backing and place another penny on top of that dimensional. Place a dimensional on top of that penny and place your Pansy Punch (or whatever you choose) on top of that dimensional. Now SHAKE IT, SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE! Rattle it around back and forth to help round out that dimensional and help your Pansy spin. Once you are happy with the way it's spinning you can then attach it to the card base using dimensionals again. Be sure to double stack the dimensionals around the "spinner". It's not necessary to double stack all the dimensionals around the outside though. The video will be posted soon to give you a visual of how this cool card is created!

One of my favorite WOW techniques is heat embossing. It's such a simple way to add texture and interest to so many projects. For this card I chose to do all the stamped images with heat embossing. Yep, that's right, all the stamped images are embossed! I used white embossing powder for the snowflakes and the "snow" in the background and Cherry Cobbler embossing powder for the Merry Christmas sentiment. I stamped the snowflakes using the Festive Flurry stamp set on Vellum cardstock, heat embossed them and cut them out with the coordinating framelits.
The "snow" in the background is actually from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set! It's paint-splatter appearance is perfect for 'in the distance' snow. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do!

I absolutely love getting people together in my home for stamping!
We always have so much fun! It's a great opportunity for us to make new friends, and laugh. Everyone needs to take some time for themselves, and this is a great way to do it. We are all overworked and get tired of the daily grind. Stamping gives us the chance to unwind and have some fun! At this month's Class we had a yummy Cocoa Bar with lots of fun toppings and goodies, Christmas cookies and candy and Christmas music! I even wore a Santa hat!
I had an amazing day with these ladies, hope you can join us next month when we will be playing BINGO!!! Stampin' Bingo! I will be sharing lots of Stampin' up products!

I have been doing so many Christmas cards and projects lately, it was time to take a break and make something "pretty" and un-Christmas like. One of my favorite colors right now is Coastal Cabana and I'm always looking for new ways to use it. I decided to use that as my card base for this card and highlight some of my Afternoon Picnic designer series paper. This paper is GORGEOUS. The colors are so beautiful together, calming and some-what gender neutral.
I used the Label Love stamp set for the Happy Birthday sentiment and the Artisan Label Punch to punch it out perfectly. I added a bit of interest behind the sentiment by punching another label with my Artisan Label Punch in Coastal Cabana. Gorgeous Grunge is the set that added all those awesome splatters and images on my piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I used So Saffron, Costal Cabana and Old Olive ink to create that look. I finished it off with a punch with the Chevron Border Punch and done! I love love love this card right now!

This super cute chocolate treat box is made using the Envelope Punch Board. I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to use my tools in different ways, and creating boxes with the Punch Board is a piece of cake! This little box would be perfect to give coworkers this holiday season, or a class room full of children. It can easily be adapted to different holidays or even used as birthday favors!
Start with a piece of 5"X5" Cardstock. On your punch board line the edge with your 2" mark, punch and score. Then slide it over to the 2 5/8" mark and punch and score. Then follow around counter clockwise matching both of the score lines on each side and punching and scoring until you have each side punched and scored. Then take your Paper Snips and cut out each of the small squares formed, round your corners using the reverse punch on your Punch Board. Take a glue dot to the point of one of the box folds and attach it to the opposing fold to start to form your box. Then put another glue dot on each side of your bottom fold and bring it up to close the bottom of your box.
I decorated this box with the Label Love and A Round Array Stamp set in Christmas colors.

Sometimes we get sick of the same old red and green combination for Christmas tags and cards.
This year blues and silvers seem to be very popular...well I took it a step farther and pulled out my Wisteria Wonder to create this soft and subtle snowflake tag and card.
By layering the snowflake on the tag above with dimensionals between each of the layers, it gives a lot of depth and beauty to the snowflake it self. It's accented with a strip of our Silver Glimmer Paper, then a piece of our Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper and finally Wisteria Wonder cardstock. I punched a hole at the top and used some of our beautiful 1/8" Silver Ribbon to tie it to a package. The layers of snowflake, starting with the largest is Wisteria Wonder ink on Whisper White Cardstock, a snowflake die cut from Silver Glimmer Paper, one stamped with our Silver Encore pad on Wisteria Wonder cardstock and finally another one stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink on Whisper White cardstock, then decorated with Dazzling Diamonds using a 2-Way Glue Pen.
The card came together easily. The card base is Wisteria Wonder Cardstock with a layer of Whisper White on the front that has been embossed with our Northern Flurry Embossing Folder.
I took a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered it with SNAIL. Then stamped my sentiment "Merry Christmas" from the Greetings of the Season Stamp set it Wisteria Wonder, flagged the one end and used Tombo Multipurpose Glue to put that on my glimmer paper. The snowflake is simply the smaller 3 snowflakes, the largest one is stamped on whisper white with wisteria wonder ink, the second is stamped with our silver encore pad on wisteria wonder cardstock and the last is stamped on whisper white with wisteria wonder ink and accented with dazzling diamonds.
Just put some rhinestones on the center of the snowflakes and you have a beautiful, completely non-traditional, but beautiful Christmas Card or tag.

Bright and Beautiful
Wreaths don't have to be just for the Holiday seasons. I made this super colorful and cheerful curly paper wreath with some of the paper in our Brights Designer Series Paper Pack.
It's created the same way as the other wreaths I have done, just with some colorful flair!
This beautiful wreath would be perfect for summer time, a craft room, a children's bedroom door, anywhere you want some bright and cheerful color!
