November Stampin' Friends Blog Hop: Happy Holidays


We are hopping with holiday projects this month. I chose to go with serene neutrals instead of traditional colors. 





The first part of this project was something I made for my customers at our Christmas Party/Stamp Workshop this past month. The freestanding tea bag pouch was a project I saw on Pootles Youtube channel. It was exactly what I was looking for. I adore hot tea and had been picking up interesting holiday inspired flavors. Click HERE for Pootles video of this amazing, no glue, no tape project. 


Opened up...I didn't use adhesive to secure the tea bags, but you could if you chose to. 


Doesn't this make a great duo?? By the way, Bigelow Toasted Coconut and Almond Bark tea is heavenly. I use a bit of creamer and sweetner with it. 






The card turned out exactly like I envisioned it. To add the soft white highlights on the Gray Granite cardstock for both projects, I just swiped the Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad directly on the paper. The trees and the sentiment were stamped with the matching Gray Granite Classic Stampin' Pad. The little snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons Bundle. I used Wink of Stella on the snowflakes and on the edge of the card base to add sparkle. If you are wondering how this will fit in an envelope with the vellum and the cardstock hanging off the edge, the card base is narrower than normal. I just made sure when I adhered the layers that the finished size would be approximately 4.25 x 5.5. 



The little wispy threads are one of my favorite things to add to my projects: ordinary cheesecloth purchased at the grocery store. Besides the tea bags, the cheesecloth is the only non-Stampin' Up! products used for these projects.

Contemporary Deer Antler Card

Hey stampers! I don't know about you, but my life has been a bit busy getting ready for the two big holidays coming up. I had a few minutes this morning to put together a card that has been on my mind every since I received the Night Owl die set. When I saw the tree branch die, I automatically thought "deer antlers". I know, my menopause brain works in mysterious ways at times. Just ask my husband...

How cute is this? I didn't even think it needed a sentiment on front. It just speaks for itself!


I cut (2) of the tree branch dies and selectively trimmed them to make the antlers. The deer "face" is the small and large pine cone shape die from the Pretty Pines die set. The ovals are from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I used dimensionals to pop up the smaller face shape. I layered it up on a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper. I think the red rhinestone for I used for the nose finished it off perfectly. 


You can make this too!

October Stampin' Friends Blog Hop: Thanksgiving~Thankfulness~Grateful

Welcome to the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop! With the holidays fast approaching, this month we will showcase projects with a Thanksgiving, Thankfulness or a Grateful theme. You will see the links for the rest of the hoppers below my post. 

For my projects, I wanted to use the Country Home stamp set with coordinating Country Lane Designer Series Paper. I did a bit of fussy cutting on this project, but all in all, it went pretty fast. 


I stamped the cotton boll arrangement and the can using the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad on Whisper White and Crushed Curry cardstock. When I stamped the cotton boll arrangement on the Whisper White, I stamped it on a large enough piece of paper that I could use one of the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut it out. I fussy cut both cans from the Crushed Curry cardstock after stamping them. I used an exacto knife to cut out the hole in the handle on the right side each can. 


I stamped a portion of the cotton boll arrangement on a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and cut out the little bits to add dimension and light color to the arrangement. I adhered them with the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I tied a piece of the Linen Thread through the hole I cut in the can handle. I added bits of real cotton to a few of the stamped cotton bolls. I fussy cut the sentiment and used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card front. 


I wanted to make a little treat bag to match the card. This little bag only takes a 6x6 piece of the DSP. This means you could get 4 of these from one piece of 12x12 paper! I followed the instructions for this bag HERE. It is one of the famous Pootle's projects. I get so many ideas for my 3-D projects from her blog. I adhered one of the cans I had previously stamped on Crushed Curry to a small Stitched Shapes oval and punched a hole in the top of the oval. I stamped the other small images on Crumb Cake and Whisper White and trimmed them out. I put a small piece of frayed cotton ball under the little "thanks" sign. The Braided Lined Trim tied in a bow holds the tag I made and keeps the bag closed. 




You can make this too!
