Mocha Morning Graduate

Spring is in the air, but the end of the school year will be here before you know it. So here is a little Mocha Morning for your graduate!  The wording on this card is from Word Play and is one of my favorite stamps from the set and very versatile – works for graduation, new job or retirement.  And the Early Espresso ribbon and the mini library clip definitely are perfect embellishments for this card.  Get your Mocha Morning Specialty DSP before it’s gone!

Here’s another project using this great DSP from a class I took at the North Carolina Retreat. My friend Bonnie Henderson taught this beautiful Frame Class and I really loved making the flowers out of Mocha Morning Specialty DSP.   Check out the texture on the leaves – she showed us how to use the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make the veins on the leaf. So cool!

Supplies for Card: Stamp Set:  Word Play; Cardstock:  Textured Crumbcake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Whisper White; Ink:   Early Espresso; DSP: Mocha Morning Specialty; Accessories:  1/8″ Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Library Clip, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:  The Retirement List will be out on April 15th, please be sure to check out this list on my demonstrator website by clicking on the “shop now shopping cart” button at the top right sidebar of my blog – it will take you to my site.  These items will start to go quick so don’t delay if there are items you want from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.

Also the Clearance Rack has added over 50 new items. You won’t want to pass up these items either. Fabulous markdowns!

Sugar & Spice – That’s what Girls are Made of!

My neighbors, Phil and Mary, just had a beautiful baby girl, named Catherine Rose. I decorated this cute frame with some flowers to spice it up for their little beauty. Thanks Mary for letting me have my baby fix this morning. I used the new Mixed Bunch stamp set from the Mini Occasions catalog along with the coordinating Blossom Punch to make the flowers. I stamped the flower image in Pretty in Pink and punched out centers of the same color card stock. That’s what’s great about Stampin’ Up! products – coordinating colors in everything from ink, cardstock, markers, ribbons, buttons, etc. ! I added the new 8 mm pearls to the centers of the flowers and on the bow which I made with my Perfect Bow Maker. The smaller flowers were made with the Boho Blossom punch and the Basic Pearls. I added all the flowers to a base which I made out of chipboard covered in Twitterpatted DSP and hot glued to the front of the frame. I also modge podged the large flowers so I could form them to flip up on the edges. Both the chipboard and the modge podge gives the flowers stability as well. I used the Two Step Bird punch (wing section) to make the leaves out of Certainly Celery card stock and sponged them on the edge to give them some depth. I used my Perfect Bow Maker to make the Pretty in Pink Bow. What a sweet little girl full of sugar and spice!

Supplies: Stamp Set: Mixed Bunches; Cardstock: Whispering White, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery; DSP: Twitterpatted; Ink: Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery; Accessories: Punches: 3/4″ Circle, Boho Blossom, Two Step Bird and the Blossom Punch, 5/8″ Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearls and 8 mm Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Linen Thread, Chipboard, Frame, Modge Podge and Glue Gun.

Take it to Heart

I’m back! I never did find my old camera so I finally had to buy a new one and now I have lots of projects to share!  This project was a gift for my hair dresser, Ashleigh, at West Wing Salon. She’s such a sweetie! I am meeting with her and her mom Friday evening to plan her wedding invitations. I can’t wait. She has a tight wedding budget, so I told her how she could save money on her invites. She’s planning on having a workshop with all the ladies in her family and her bridal party to earn all the products she needs to make her invitations with. Then I will show her how to make them and she will save herself oodles of money and will have the great memory of making the invites herself.

So this is the cute jar of goodies I gave her this morning – just in time for Valentine’s Day! I used the “Take It to Heart” stamp set featured in the new Mini Occasions Catalog as well as the Hearts Collection Framelits. Love the framelits – they are thin, wafer-like dies that perfectly cut out my stamped image of the boy and girl on the bicycle. There are 6 different sizes of hearts. The jar I used is a Collection Elite mini Ball jar that I purchased at the Big “W” and filled with yummy gummy heart candy I got from my local Amish Market. Wow, if you ever want to see a collection of candy you’ve got to go there!

Since the Ball jar lids are in two pieces. I put a couple of mini glue dots between the twist frame and the lid to hold it together. I then ran a length of Sticky Strip around the top edge of the lid and then ruffled my satin ribbon around the top as shown in the next picture, pinch pleating as I rounded the jar. I added some doubled up Dimensionals to the center of the lid.  The Dimensionals will keep the top cover that I will apply in the center level with the ribbon around the edge.

 I then used the #2 Circle Scallops Die and Real Red CS to cut a top for my jar. It fit perfectly!  I then stamped my main image in Real Red Ink and used the Framelit Die to cut out my image. The small assorted hearts are cut from the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die.

Do you like my perfect bow? Well, I learned a trick at Leadership Conference I will share with you later this week. I’ll never freehand another bow again!

Here’s an even better close up of the top of the jar.

 

Supplies: Stamp Set: Take it To Heart; Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink; Ink: Real Red; Accessories: Big Shot, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die; #2 Circle Scallop Die, Dimensionals, 5/8″ Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Sticky Strip; Non-Stampin’ Up! Supplies: Elite Collection Ball Jars and Candy.

Asheville, NC Stamp/Scrap Retreat

I finally arrived at my Stamp/Scrap Retreat yesterday afternoon. I flew into the Greenville/ Spartansburg Airport in South Carolina and then rented a car to carry me and all my STUFF to the Ridgecrest Retreat Center in Asheville, NC. The drive to the retreat center was beautiful with all the changing foliage along the way. I managed to squeeze my clothing and all my supplies into two large suitcases and one small carry-on.  All arrived safely without incidence, except for a brief inspection of one of my suitcases by the TSA as indicated by this tag. They were probably wondering what all those scissors and blades were doing in there. LOL!  I have been having alot of fun meeting new friends, sharing ideas and attending classes.

I’ve included some of the projects I’ve been working on so far – holiday gift tags using the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper and a gift card that will be offered  in my Holiday Gift Card Stamp a Stack on December 8 and 15 from 6-10 p.m. Take one class or both. Cost is $20.00 for each class. This gift card holder is perfect for the men in your life. Very manly with the woodgrain paper from the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper pack along with the stately deer from the Winter Post stamp set. When open, the gift card sits in a pocket on the left and your word saying is on a small card to the right.

Will try to post again later tonight with more projects from my retreat. Thanks for checking in with me!

Dinoraur ABC’s

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My grandson, Andrew, is learning his ABC’s now, so I thought I would combine some of his favorite things, dinosaurs, with some ABC cards to encourage him to learn them. I absolutely love the way it turned out and I hope he likes it as well.  I’ll be babysitting him while his parents attend the Marine Corps Ball this evening, so we’ll be practicing while they are gone.

The letters on the cover of the Dino Packet were made using my Big Shot and the Timeless Type Medium Sizzlits Die. And, when I made each alphabet page, I used the Big Shot again with the Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz Die. I created the camouflage effect by cutting random pieces of River Rock cardstock and adhering it on to Always Artichoke cardstock and then running each square through my Big Shot in the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to embed them into each other.  I then stamped each dinosaur from Stampin’ Up!’s Dinoraur stamp set using Stazon Black Ink and watercolored them with my Aqua Painter using River Rock and Always Artichoke Ink.  I added two of the dinosaur cards to the front of the pack and two to the backside sandwiching the ABC’s in between. Let me know what you think!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Dinoraur; Cardstock:  Always Artichoke, River Rock & Whisper White; Ink:  Black Stazon, River Rock and Always Artichoke; Markers: Always Artichoke; Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz Die, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Medium Sizzlits Die, Small Heart Punch, 3/16″ Corner Rounder Punch; 3/8″ Artichoke Denim Jean Ribbon; Aqua Painter, Stampin’ Sponges, Non-Stampin’ Up! Items: Gold Ring and Mini Clear Bookmark Covers.

A Pumpkin With Spice!

Spice Cake Designer Series Paper is filled with so much spice it’s overflowing from this cute  floral display I made for my hair stylist, Ashley at West Wing Salon & Spa.  She does an amazing job on my hair so I wanted to make something nice to let her know I appreciate her.  I found this beautiful little ceramic pumpkin container at my local grocery store in three different colors – orange, olive and purple. I can’t wait to to fill the remaining two containers with matching flowers. I’ll have to check my paper stash and see what I can come up with.

The flowers are made using the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch.  For instructions on how to make these flowers see my November 19, 2010 posting by putting “shower” in the search engine on my right sidebar. I made several of those beautiful bouquets for my daughter’s wedding shower. My scallop punch definitely got a workout when I made them. LOL!

I added an oversized styrofoam ball to my ceramic pumpkin pushing it in as far as it would go to secure it and began inserting the flowers into the ball using large corsage pins.  In the past I have also attached the flowers using a low temp glue gun, but by using the pins avoided the mess this time.  Stamped my tag with “Life is a matter of moments” stamp and attached it with linen thread to my bow and using the large corsage pins inserted the bow into the flower arrangement. Because of the pretty blue pearl on the end of the corsage pin I didn’t mind having it show.

Shop my on-line store to purchase any of the Stampin’ Up! products shown here by clicking on the mini shopping cart in the right sidebar!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Elements of Style; Cardstock: More Mustard and Soft Suede for flowers, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso for the tag; Ink:  Early Espresso; Designer Series Paper:  Spice Cake; Accessories:  Neutral Brads, 5/8″ Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Linen Thread, Punches:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval and 1/16″ Circle.

I Prefer Treats over Tricks!

I love Halloween! In fact, my daughter, Lindsey, was born on Halloween and was definitely my treat that year.  Since then we have had many halloween birthday parties but one in particular I remember making a paper mache bat pinata.  It had so much glue in it no one could break the pinata. LOL! One of the dads ended up having to break it open so the kids could get to the candy. A little disappointing to the kids, but my daughter and I sure had fun making our first pinata together. Lesson learned – less glue!

I made this cute little treat box for a shoebox swap I attended yesterday with some other ladies from my upline and sideline.  However, you can make it too if you attend my Fall Stamp Camp on Saturday, October 8 from 2-6 p.m.  I’ll have three other fun fall projects as well for $15.00.  Check out the details of my Fall Stamp Camp on my demonstrator website events calendar at www.sherahlweadon.stampinup.net soon!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s new Kraft Gift boxes for the base of my project. These are a deal at 4 boxes for only $2.95. I used the Pick Your Poison Designer Series Paper pack to decorate all sides and inside the top lid.  I then stamped my pumpkins using the Jack of All Trades stamp set. Love that witch hat and rhinestone bling for his eyes!

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Jack of All Trades, Piece of Poison, and Got Treats; Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Basic Black; Designer Series Paper:  Pick Your Poison; Ink:  Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, and Old Olive; Accessories:  Large and Small Tag Punches, Kraft Gift Boxes, 1/8″ Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, 1/2″ Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Basic Rhinestones, Medium Flat Cellow Bags, Linen Thread, Paper Piercing Tool or 1/16″ Circle Punch, Halloween Candy and Lollipop Sticks.

All Buttoned Up!

This Button Jar Pin Cushion is a project that I did with my downline back in the Spring to showcase Stampin’ Up!’s lovely Designer Fabrics.  They are all very high quality fabrics and share our beautiful cardstock colors in them.  This particular fabric is from the Springtime Vintage collection.  The fabric is 100% cotton and each box includes three coordinated designs in an extra-wide fat quarter size – each piece is approximately 27″ x 18″ and sells for $9.95.  If you are a quilter or sew, you can use these fabrics along with our Big Shot and selected dies to cut your fabric with ease. Check the fabrics out on page 196 of the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog and you will be able to choose from new holiday fabrics in the Holiday Mini Catalog as well which goes live on September 1.  These would make great gifts for your quilting and sewing friends!

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Tiny Tags; Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White and Rose Red; Ink:  Rose Red and Old Olive; Designer Fabric:  Springtime Vintage; Accessories:  Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Sponge, Dimensionals, Linen Thread, Small Heart Punch, Large and Extra Large Tag Punches, Ball Jars (available in your local big box store) and Crushed Walnut Shells for the pin cushion (available at your local pet store – they are used to line the bottom of bird cages, but also keep your pins sharp when you insert them into the pin cushion).  The following items are retired but can be easily switched out for products currently available in the catalog: 1/8″ Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon; 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Night of Navy Designer Button.

Glittery Goodness!

Glittery Goodness!

The Christmas Holidays are always filled with yummy goodies so why not share this glittery goodness with your friends and family when they come to visit.  Place them on a nightstand or on their pillows right before retiring for the evening.  These little glittery boxes hold four Hershey nuggets wrapped with a Merry message stamped using the new “Its a Wrap Holidays” stamp set.  The messages from this stamp set are stamped on an Avery 8160 label.  However, before you wrap your nugget, make a belly band around your nugget with cardstock, then wrap with your stamped label.  The Hershey Chocolates Co.  has advised against wrapping the chocolates directly with the label as the adhesive on the labels can be absorbed into the chocolate through the wrapper and distort the taste of the chocolate. So be sure to wrap them first with cardstock so they remain food safe please!
 
Since I had a bit of a problem photographing this little box because of all its glittery goodness, I ended up having to take it outside so there wasn’t so much glare, but then ended up with a bit of a shadow on the side.  I suggest you click on the photo to get a closer look at all the details and those cute little birds on the branch.  I used the Bigz XL Matchbox die for the box and the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper covers the top and bottom and then wrapped with Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon.  Ahhh – there’s that new Silver Glimmer paper again. Doesn’t it just sparkle!
 
The birds on the limb are stamped with the new Christmas Lodge stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I added extra sparkle to the branch with the new Dazzling Details irredescent glitter glue, a rhinestone in the flower, and a few of the new Mini Jingle Bells on a Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine bow.  Simply delectable!
 
Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  Christmas Lodge, It’s A Wrap Holidays and You’re a Gem; Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Garden Green; Ink:  Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green; Designer Series Paper:  Christmas Lodge; Accessories:  Big Shot, Bigz XL Matchbox Die, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine, Mini Jingle Bells, Dazzling Details, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots and 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon.

Gently Falling Favors

Thanksgiving Favor

Fall is one of my favorite times of year – the weather starts to cool down, the leaves start to change colors and then begin gently falling. Thanksgiving is then just around the corner.  Wouldn’t this box look great at everyone’s plate when you sit down for the best holiday dinner ever?  You may not have room for a full dessert, but you always have room for two little chocolates! Especially when they are Ghiradelli caramels.  They fit perfectly inside this box which is made with the Bitty Box w/Envelope Bigz XL Die.  It’s a charming little box with leaves from the new Gently Falling stamp set decorating it. I also used the new Spice Cake Fabric as ribbon by tearing strips of fabric and fraying it around the edges and then adhered Spice Cake DSP on the top and bottom of the box.  This box is very easy to put together and requires only a small amount of adhesive.  Falling Gently is full of different size leaves plus a little acorn. This set is a two step stamp set meaning you stamp a solid stamp image and then an overlay of an outline stamp in a different color to highlight and define the original stamped image.  I used Pumpkin Pie Ink with an overlay of Soft Suede Ink on my leaves. It’s so fun and easy to use a stamp set like this.  In addition to the two leaves stamped for the top of the box I then stamped two extra images and placed them on top of each of my chocolates for an extra flair when you open your box of chocolates.  Finished it off with a small acorn and a tag of thanks from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set.

Would you like to learn how to make these cute little favors for your next Thanksgiving gathering?  When you host your own party, you earn a FREE 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog and based on the sales at your party you can earn product to make your own favors for FREE.  Want to learn more, just give me a call at 410-673-1673 or e-mail me at sweadon@hotmail.com and I can set up a party for you and your friends to have a girl’s night out and stamping too!

A Big Burpee Thank You!

Just Believe Thank You

Here’s a cute little thank you card with a gardening surprise inside. It’s made to open and close like a matchbook so it will hold a packet of seeds. This was the last of the four thank you cards we made at my Stamp A Stack. We used the “Just Believe” stamp set to stamp the flowers which are absolutely gorgeous. So what better to put inside than a little packet of flower seeds.

 
This card is made by cutting your card base at 4-1/4″ x 11. Score at 1″ and 6-3/8″. Fold up the bottom edge at the 1″ mark and staple twice close to the bottom (about 1/4″ in) like a matchbook. This will give you your pocket for your seeds. Then fold down the top and tuck it inside to close your card. To hide the staples just be sure to make a cover strip to add at the bottom of your card like I did here with the flowers and with stars on this card sample.
 
I made this card a couple of years ago for a child’s birthday party, so it’s a little worse for wear and unfortunately the stamp set is retired. But it gives you another idea you can use for this type of card. It contains those cool “Pop Rocks” that kids love. Surprise!
 
 Supplies: Stamp Set: Just Believe; Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White; Ink: Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum; Accessories: Fiskars Paper Cutter with Scoring Tool, Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch, Dimensionals, Basic Pearls, Stapler and Burpee Seed Packs.

Sailing “The Open Sea”!

On the Open Seas

Love, love, love this stamp set!  These projects are great for Father’s Day.  The first is a card using the Mosaic technique which I taught at my last  Technique Tuesday class. It’s so easy to make the mosaic stamp for this project by using all the remnants of your leftover rubber from your stamp sets and the largest of Stampin’ Up!’s acrylic blocks.

Mosaic Acrylic Block

 I tried using the clear mount stamps when Stampin’ Up! first released them and purchased several of the acrylic blocks, but found out I am a die hard wood block stamper so I have a few acrylic blocks available now to use for this technique.  Just cut up the remnants and adhere them close together on the acrylic block. Stamp your image in black ink and color in with chalks, ink or markers. Apply Versamark Ink to the large mosaic stamp you made and stamp over the entire  image. Apply clear embossing powder and heat dry with your heat tool. Allow to cool and then with a sponge dauber rub Basic Gray or Basic Black over your entire image (i.e., apply your grout) and then wipe off any excess ink from the embossed areas with a kleenex.  I used the new Baker’s twine in Cherry Cobbler/White to embellish. I finished off the card on the interior with this beautiful saying from the stamp set “Word Play”.

Inside of Card - Word Play

Add a restaurant gift card along with a movie gift card to go see the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” to this double-sided box for Dad!  The boxes are  made with the Box #2 Sizzix Die and the Big Shot. Not Quite Navy and Cherry Cobbler are great nautical colors to use with this stamp set.

The last project is a hidden Kit Kat bar.  I love this trick to hide candy! Wrap your designer paper around your candy bar and crimp the ends with your crimper for decoration.

Kit Kat Bar Candy Wrap

Supplies:  Stamp Sets:  The Open Sea, Word Play, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Cardstock:  Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler Whisper White and Basic Gray; Ink: Stazon Black, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake,  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze; Designer Series Paper: Regals Collection Patterns Stack; Accessories:  Stampin’ Dimensionals and Sponges, Vintage Brads, Crimper,  Small and Medium Oval Punches, 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2-3/8″ Circle Scallop Punch, Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat, Paper Piercing Tool and Pad, Aqua Painter, Big Shot with Standard and Extended Cutting Pads, Scallop Circles #2 Die and Box #2 Die.

Blissful Bunny Treat

Blissful Bunny Treat

Here is a cute little bunny treat for your Easter honey! These little pouches are so easy to make using the Petal Cone die. This pouch was made before Sale-A-Bration ended last month using the Bliss stamp set which is unfortunately no longer available.  However, if you mention this posting to me FIRST at the Home and Garden Expo this Saturday in Easton you can win this cute little bunny pouch and take him home with you!  I will be at the Talbot Community Center in the curling rink which is the new Craft Room during the Expo on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  I will be there on Sunday as well from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. I will also have some other pouches available for purchase along with a few other goodies pictured here.  Sorry about the photo. I had to run outside and take this pic on my porch before the sun went down.  The best thing about these pouches is that after you use them for a treat, you don’t have to throw them away. They make great little covers for your Stampin’ Up!’s paper snips and protects the tips of your scissors.

Home and Garden Expo Treats

Hopefully I will be back to posting on a regular basis again.  I was not feeling well and had to spend the months of March and April going to the doctors and getting better.  Look for new class postings in May as well.

New Stamp Camp – Check Book Covers

Want to make writing a check a little more exciting? Check out my new Check Book Cover Stamp Camp!  We will be making 12 beautiful inserts to change out monthly. January is pictured here with beautiful snowflakes from the Serene Snowflakes stamp set stamped in Night of Navy and Bashful Blue.

January Snowflakes

I thought this cover would be appropriate with all the snow we have had on the Shore lately!  Each of the large snowflakes is finished off with a beautiful Rhinestone in the center.

A plus for those of you already thinking of gifts to make for Christmas gifts next year, this would make a lovely gift.  For all those scrapbookers that don’t think stamping is for them, just think how cute these would be by adding a picture of your kids or grandkids throughout this year.
