Chocolate Nugget Slider

I have so many things to post but I've been so busy making cookies, making Christmas cards and trying to get ready for Christmas, I'm sadly far behind on my blog! Here is a cool nugget slider that I made as a class project. The acetate slides off to make a really cute treat. I love how these turned out. I stamped on the actate using white staz-on ink. The candy is hershey nuggets, wrapped in designer paper. Then I stamped a tag using the scallop cirlce and circle punches and added it on with the felt ribbon (love this stuff). I think it looks as good as, if not better than, a store-bought treat!!

tile magnets...

Happy Monday. I hope everyone is staying's REALLY cold here today. I want to share with you some of the projects we made at my gift workshop last Saturday. This one is a set of magnets. I bought some tiles at Menard's (they're around 2 x 2 inches) and stamped them with Staz-On. Then I used chalks and a blender pen to color them. Once they were dry, I put sticky strip around the edges and dipped them in microbeads. They turned out so cute!! Then you just stick a magnet on the back and ...tah dah! What a cute little stocking stuffer. I put mine in a little cello bag with a topper to dress them up. Hope you like!

Naughty Kitty card!

Here is a naughty kitty card using Pink Cat Studio stamps. I have two kitties and I could just see them hanging out in my tree like this guy! So Naughty! It cracks me up. I love it! To help give the effect of the kitty actually IN the tree, stamped this image three times, colored them and then cut them out and layered them with dimensionals so it's popping off the card. It turned out so adorable!! The cardstock is all from Stampin' Up! and can you believe it, I didn't even use ribbon on this card! Yikes. I colored in the tree and kitty using blender pens and ink from the lids of the ink pads. Then I colored the ornaments with markers and went over the red spots with red stickles (sparkly that stuff). Hope you like it!

ink:Basic Black, others to color

Meowy Christmas!

Here is another card I made with the stamps from Pink Cat Studio. Isn't she adorable? I stamped this with black ink and colored it using the aquapainter and inks from the lids of my ink pads. I love coloring with the aquapainter! For the background texture I ran some riding hood red cardstock through my cuttlebug using the argyle embossing folder. Then I used the scallop border punch to make the scallops up the side. The card is made from Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I love these color together!

Pink Cat Christmas...

When I saw these stamps from Pink Cat Studio, I could not resist. I've always admired their designs and this one was so adorable I had to have it. I loved the little kitty angel and the "meowy Christmas" sentiment. For this card I used Stampin' Up Cardstock in Pacific Point and Baja Breeze blues and then Chocolate chip and Barely Banana. I stamped the cat image in Basic black and colored it using aquapainters and ink. I then went over it with some silver bells shimmerz which makes is sparkle lightly...It's hard to see in the picture but it's really pretty. Here's a close-up. Maybe you can see it a little in this one.

I found the cute little button brads in a little scrapbook store up in Hayward where I was over thanksgiving. So cute!

Merry Christmas!!

I'm back! Sorry it took me a couple of days to catch up on being back. I still have a mountain of laundry to do but that's another story. Since it's snowing here today I thought I'd start out my first post in December by sharing a Christmas card!

This card uses the Riding hood red and kiwi kiss cardstock. I think these work great together for christmas, especially with the chocolate chip added (I know, I just love adding chocolate chip to almost everything but it makes a great neutral!)

This card would be super easy to make. I just stamped the flowers and flourishes on the whisper white and framed it with the Chocolate chip. Then I stamped two flowers on a separate piece, cut them out and added them on with dimensionals. That takes the longest but you could skip that part if you don't mind a flat card. The green was scalloped using the scallop border punch. That's it. easy peasy.

stamps:Season of Joy
ink: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
paper: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
other: Scallop Border Punch.
