So I have been busy getting ready for the next Ustamp with Dawn and Friends. If you love the new SU holiday catalog, then you will want to check it out. Lots of Halloween, Fall, and Christmas projects. I will add the blinkie to my sidebar so if you want to sign up you can. On to my project.

I made this a few months ago after I saw Dawn Olchefske's video on this. You can check her out at Dostamping for a bunch of videos. She is so awesome to share her ideas. It is a hat made out of a SU brad or button box. I used papers and ribbon from this years Sale E Bration for this cute hat. I added a button bracelet to the inside for a hostess gift. My flower was done with the blossom punch and the boho blossoms punch. I added a little vanilla smooch spritz for some sparkle plus some rhinestones. Isn't it the cutest? Keep those boxes ladies cause these are so fun!

 I will be back soon with more so stay tuned!!

I did not realize that I hadn't posted this until I saw it sitting on my desk. I made this heart box about 6 weeks ago using the heart framelits die. I experimented with it for a while before I figured out how to get it right. I also saw a video on the Stampin" Connection website that helped me figure out what I was missing. I need to go back and get her name so I can give her credit for her help.

I made the rosette with the doily border punch which is retiring, booohoo. I really love this punch and hate that it's going to be gone. The small scallop circle is not SU. I did not have the boho blossoms punch when I made this, but that would work great for the flower and the center of the rosette. Hope everyone enjoys my creation.

Valentines Day Card

Hey everyone! I know that this card has been around for a few years now, but I saw this version here, and had to make one. This went to my hubby for Valentines, and he thought it was very funny. His initials are on the heart tattoo! I got the pattern from here and it's so easy.

The card base is made out of a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of blush blossom cs scored at 5 1/2 and folded in half. I cut out the pattern and stuck it with removable adhesive and cut it out. The DSP is Timeless Portrait. I used the pleated satin ribbon in riding hood red for the trim, straps and flower. The tattoo is punched with the small heart punch and riding hood red cs and I used my black Stampin' Write journaling marker to embellish it. I used some sticky strip on a 1/2 circle of cs and made the flower and finished it with some basic rhinestones. My bra straps are a little crooked but that's just like real life! Too bad my booty doesn't look as good, lol!! I think it would be great to make a bathing suit one for a summer card. Thanks for looking!!

Salebration Preview

Hey everyone, I made this card with some old stuff and some new stuff. The flowers are made with the blossom party die and embossed with the snowburst embossing folder. I used the edgelit die for the bottom of the card and the sentiment from the apothecary art stamp set. Both of those are in the occasions mini catalog. The Dsp, the brad, and the stamp on the background paper is from the salebration catalog. This paper is so pretty and the stamp set is very cute. It's called fresh vintage. There is also a brad pack and button and ribbon pack that you can get as a freebie.
