Meet Finn!

Meet our new addition to the family!! This is Finn. He is adorable and 5 months old. He went up to Kiki and gave him a cute little head butt. But Kiki hissed at him so now Finn hisses at him. But I think in a few days they will be great friends.
Finn is very loving and always has his little paws going making biscuits.
He is adorable!

Happy Stamping!

Reindeer Door Hanger!

I found this cute little door hanger on You tube . It is a project done by Stamping With Amore. She has some great little projects. There is another she just posted today that is adorable also. I didnt have the same paper she had some I changed mine up. It needs 12 x 12 paper and I only had the Old Olive. The dsp is from Christmas Around the World and I had been wanting to use the Nutcracker paper so I went with that. I made 4 of these this morning in about 1 1/2-2 hours so they are really quick and easy to make.
The cute little reindeer is from the Seasonal Chums stamp set. It is made with fronts and backs to make gift tags with but I just used the front. Then I colored it with the new Stampin Blends .
It was really fun to color. Since I have a couple of people coming over this morning I made these for them. I already had the little snowman for them so I added it and some candy to fill it up.
If you would like to purchase any of the supplies to make this cute little project just leave me a comment or send me an email. You can also order from me online .

Christmas Class Today!

Today we are doing these three projects in class.
I was hoping to go with a Vintagey look for the mittens. I was tempted to make all of the cards pink but I know that not everyone likes pink as much as I do!
Speaking of pink!! Joan and I went to the Secret Gardens Tea House in Sumner, Wa this last weekend and it was AMAZING! Tons of pink and sparkle! It was all decorated for christmas and they are having a pink christmas this year just like I am. I bought a sampler of the pink tea set. It is definitely on my christmas and birthday list this year!!
Kati bought a pink flamingo ornament for me and said I should do my tree in pink this year. So I ordered a bunch of them and got more pink ornaments at the tea house.
Cant wait to get my tree up!!

Purple Poinsettia Box at Main St!

This is an explosion box I did for Main St Stamp and Stationary in Tigard. I will be doing a class on this today.
It is going to be my biggest class there ever! Or anywhere else actually.
I just love these Poinsettia Papers by Kaisercraft!
This one has pockets also like my last one did. They are on the sides with the bows. You could put money in them or a gift certificate or even a note. In the inside box could hold chocolates, jewelry. Any type of small gift.
Boy were these flowers a pain to cut out!! I went thru two plates with my precision plate and still had some problems.
I made 20 kits, 160 flowers, 160 silver leaves, lots of die cutting and cutting!!

Happy Stamping!

Fun Name Tags!

These are the name tags I made for everyone at the Holiday Premier Party last Saturday. I think that everyone liked them.
For the prize drawings, I had everyone open their goodie bags and unwrap these. Then they had to add up their totals on the letters and the one with the most numbers got to pick a prize first. You would think the one with the longest name would have the highest score. But it didnt work that way. One of the highest scores only had a 4 letter name!
These were really easy and fun to make. I already had a whole bunch of scrabble pieces.
Happy Stamping!

Case(E) This Sketch #241!

I made this card using the sketch from Cas(E) This Sketch Challenge . I just love the pumpkins with the Gourd Goodness stamp set. It is a two step photopolymer stamp set. It looks so realistic. I used Tangerine Tango and Peekaboo Peach. It is a really easy set to match up. The greetings is from this set, and is stamped in Early Espresso.
I have used the Painted Autumn Designer Series papers, gold, copper and champagne foil papers, with Early Espresso, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock.
The die cut leaves are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the Pumpkin is from the Patterned Pumpkin thinlits.
I have also added a heart from the Corrugated Elements and added a little Glitter Enamel Dot in the center.
If you would like to order any products for this card or anything else you can visit me here , email me or leave me a comment and I would be happy to contact you!

Merry Patterns!

I made this card with a new stamp set called Merry Patterns! It is available for a limited time only and only with a $300 purchase.
I used the sketch from sketch #482 from the Sketch Saturday challenge. This is a fun set to play with but as you can see you have to be really careful not to rock your block at all. I love how easy the two step stamping is. First you stamp your outline and then fill it in.
I've used Be Merry DSP, Garden Green and Whisper White cardstock, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green ink pads, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and Cherry cobbler double stitched ribbon.
If you would like to purchase these or any other items, just send me an email or leave me a comment below!

Seasonal Chums!

Isn't this little deer just the cutest?? It is from the Seasonal Chums stamp set. The tree and snowflake come with this stamp set also.
It is originally made to make tags and the stamps have fronts and backs and fold over when you cut them out. But I only wanted the front of this little deer. So I cut my stamp apart so I didnt have to fight with the rest of the stamp. Then later when I want both the front and back I can still place them together and use them that way also. I do this quite a bit with my stamps.
I have seen quite a few versions of this card but this is my version of it.
It is also using Merry Little Christmas designer papers, stitched shape framelits, and the circle shape framelits.
I just love the Stitched Shaped Framelits. They are always my first choice when I go for a shaped die. But my sweet daughter has been helping me with my die cutting a lot this month and she isn't too found of them!
I colored the little reindeer with watercolor pencils and wink of stella. My new favorite way to color.
The black border is punched with the Ticket Tear Punch and I have wrapped the Black Shimmer Ribbon around the card!
For anyone coming to my Holiday Premier Party on the 30th or October 3rd, they will be seeing another one of the Seasonal Chums!!
Happy Stamping!
