Stampin' Up! Christmas Messages

Well our November is quickly coming to an end and our last club of the month met this week.  Wanted to share this way cute card we made!  I was inspired by a card I saw from Carrie Rhoades.  I see these stars made ALL the time and thought they would be too difficult to attempt, but they are super easy!

 Supplies used:  Cherry Cobbler ink and cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Christmas Messages stamp set #131793, and Season of Style DSP stack #132181.

Here's how to make your star.  Create a template with what size star you want.  Trace it onto your cardstock and cut out.  Don't worry about it being perfect, once its folded you won't really notice it.

Using either your cutter with scoring blade or a ruler with stylus (like I did), you want to score lines from the point of the star to the "valley" directly across from it. I found it easier to rotate my star as I did it, so point straight up, score, turn to next point straight up.  Etc, until you've done all 5 points.

Your score lines should look like this (I drew lines so you could see the score lines better for the picture).  Notice how all the lines should intersect in the middle.  Fold at all the score lines make sure you have a nice crease.

I found to make sure you have mountains and valley, you want to accordian fold the star.

You can only accordian fold 3 points at a time, so you'll have to turn it a few times including the last point in the next accordian fold.

And at the end you should have these.

I adhered each point down to my card with glue dots to help it keep its shape and keep it in place.

Super cute and super easy!

Now go make your own card!

Club Challenge

So this year, I decided to change it up a bit with my clubs.  They always had to do swaps but I've switched it to swaps every other month and I give them a challenge to do (or not to do) the other month.  If they do the challenge they get a little something something from me.
My church ladies club met on Friday and out of the 11 only 3 did it but I thought all 3 of them were outstanding!

This first one is from Naomi Zeinert.

This second one is from Lesley Blum.   Since she just started, she didn't have the scallop circle punch yet....

And this third one is from Sheri Belanus.

Awesome job ladies!!!

Stampin' Up! Greetings of the Season

Can you believe that Christmas is like 6 weeks away??  YIKES!  Well, I don't know if you were aware but you can still get the awesome stamp set Greetings of the Season.
I wanted to try my hand at the sunburst design that has been going all over and its super easy!

So we made this card last month:

We used the awesome designer series mini stack Winter Frost #132183 out of the holiday mini. 
Basically you just need a scrap panel to lay your strips on.  So you pick the size of panel you want to build (this one is 3 3/4 " x 2 3/4").  Cut 4 DSP strips 1" x 4" and you cut each of those strips into triangles on your cutter.  You know from one corner to the opposite corner, so it forms a triangle.  Now you have 8 triangles.  I used our awesome glue stick on the whole piece of scrap.  And start from the middle and work you way out.  You'll end up with a bunch of the DSP sticking over the edge of your scrap but you just trim it away.  Easy peasy.

Funny thing is my club gals do swaps and a couple brought swaps of the same technique, pretty funny huh?
So here's a picture of one that Lesley Blum brought for her swaps.

Now go try this yourself!

Stampin' Up! Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit

Whew, that title is a mouthful!  Well, I got this beautiful kit (found on page 18 of the Holiday Mini) and its a table setting for 10, but since we only have 3 in our little family, I decided I had to have cards from it.  And since I was having Bunco last night what better way to showcase it!

So here's what you can make with just doing the table setting.

Um yeah, don't ask me for the Snicker Salad recipe because I have to still get it from my SIL.  It sure is yummy though!  So I have to say my favorite thing about this kit is the HUGE roll of fake bark (birch paper ribbon) you get.  Its wrapped around my candle and its at the bottom of my card.  We spend a fair amount of time at my Aunt Dorothy's cabin in the north woods and I'm for sure going to be using that on my scrapbook pages!
Oh, you even get a chalk marker with this kit!  How cool is that??

So here's a close up of the card we made last night.  The ONLY thing that didn't come in the kit was the Happy Thanksgiving stamp and the card base.

The kit number is #133463 and comes with everything diecut for the leaves and everything and rolls of birch paper ribbon and Chocolate Chip paper ribbon.  This kit coordinates with the Sweater Weather Designer Series paper #132184.

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Halloween Happiness

I know Halloween is over, but I had to share this card.  I just loved how it turned out.  We did it for club this month.

I stamped the whole stamp in Old Olive on the Whisper White cardstock.  And then on a scrap piece I stamped the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie (what else would you stamp pumpkins in?)  I cut just the pumpkins out with my paper snips.  Yes, I got alot of moaning and groaning, but when it was all put together they loved it.  All was forgiven!
I popped the pumpkins up on dimensionals and of course layered them on top.  Once I had the card all put together I used the glitter so it could sit and dry and be a done card!
I used 2-way glue for glitter, so make sure you get it all over the pumpkin up to the edges to get full coverage.
Supplies used:  Witches Brew Designer Washi Tape #132156, Halloween Happiness #131859, Orange Stampin' Glitter #132206, 2-way Glue pen #100425.

Happy Stamping!
