To make this card all I did was punch out a few circles...one was 1 3/4" and one was 1 1/4". Then I cut a strip of silver card stock (yes...silver! I think it gets overlooked in the Stampin' Up! catalog, but it really is beautiful!) to about 3/4". Then I used the scallop edge punch and scalloped the whole strip. Then I just cut off a portion of it, adhered it to the top of my circle and the main ornament was completed. :) Then I just attached some silver elastic cording, tied a bow, adhered the ornament on with a dimensional, and VOILA! :) Some sponging and a sentiment, and you're done. Hope you enjoy!

I've heard an awful rumor that some don't like Mr. Twigster. Are you kidding me?! :) I guess it's ok if you don't, but HOW CUTE IS HE?!?! :) ....I colored him and gave him a little shadow with a blender pen and ink pads. Basically...you smoosh the lid down on the ink pad before you open it up. This gives you some ink on the lid. Then you just use the blender pen to pick up some of the ink and color like you would with a marker. I used Kiwi Kiss for the scarf, Tangerine Tango for the nose, and Basful Blue to do the shadow. Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!!!

We use the Big Shot yesterday. I saw this reindeer pouch on Dawn's blog. I met her at Founder's Circle this year, and she does GREAT stuff! (Ahhhh man....I forgot to tie the striped ribbon on the side! I loved that! Sorry girls....COME BACK and we'll add it! :) Although I still think he's so cute!) Anyway: I saw this and HAD to make it! Isn't he precious?. And he's a pouch. He opens at the top so you can put some goodies in him and hang him on a neighbor's door or your kids door or give to teacher's, friends, family, etc. Anyone would love receiving him I'm sure! :)
He's really easy to make. Using your Big Shot....cut out 2 of the large pennant dies. (I used Creamy Caramel cardstock for him.) The sponge the edges with Close to Cocoa ink. Using sticky strip, adhere the two pennant dies together, just on the two scallop edged sides. (Leaving the top open gives you the pouch.) The using the 1 1/4" Circle punch, punch a nose out of Riding Hood Red cardstoc, two eyes out of Whisper White card stock, and then a circle to make the eyelids out of Creamy Caramel. Then you will punch the inside of the eyes using a 3/4" circle punch and Basic Black cardstock. Then I just cut the Creamy Caramel circle in half, sponged it with Close to Cocoa ink, and those are your two eyelids. Then just build your face. I used a white gel pen to give the eye the highlight. Then using my Crop-a-dile I punch two holes in the top two sides for my ribbon. Thread your ribbon through and tie it and your done! Have fun making some yourself! You'll love it! :)

"Kara married her husband Hutch Henrie less than a year ago (about 7 months). They were so in love and happy. Recently, the newlyweds were involved in a tragic accident. I believe Kara was the driver and she swerved to miss something in the road, but was unable to keep control of the car. Her husband was thrown from the car and died shortly after. If this story isn't heartbreaking enough there is more; Kara was a couple months pregnant when she lost her husband. Not only that,but they did not have life insurance because his company didn't offer it, and she will shortly, if she hasn't already, lose the health care benefits her husband had through his work. The financial burden on top of the emotional and spiritual heartache is too much for someone to bare on her own. There has been an outpouring of love for Kara and her family, but I feel like we can do a lot more. She has to deal with so much more than I can imagine. Kara's story has really struck me to the point that I cannot lie down to go to sleep without thinking about her and what she is going through right at that moment. I do not know Kara personally, I know her sister-in-law a bit but I have such a strong feeling that I need to help her. I wanted to do all I could anonymously, but I feel I could do a lot more by asking for YOUR help. The Henrie family has lost 3 members of their family in less than a decade: Their sister at age 21 to a car accident, their mother within the past year or so to breast cancer and now their brother to another tragic accident. I know that Heavenly Father must feel like this family is strong enough to endure the pain and struggle they have, but I feel like we can help ease the basic needs of Kara's and help her to focus on the things she needs to in order to get through this hard time. I think about the baby that is such a gift from our Heavenly Father, but which might feel like such a burden and she must have so many mixed emotions about her situation. It was supposed to be such a happy time for her and her husband to be starting a family together, and I feel like she can find peace eventually, but with the stress and burdens she has I feel like she needs our help. I know these are tough economic times for a lot of people, but I also know the blessing of giving yourself to a deserving effort. Here is how you can help: There are 2 separate trust funds set up at Zion's Bank and America First, email me if you are interested in donating to one of these and I will send you all the information you need. I am also taking cash or check donations in her name, Kara Henrie, as well as cards, gifts,etc. If you know companies or businesses that would like to help out please let me know and I will do all I can to support them in helping Kara. Please remember her this Holiday Season and find someway to help a part of renewing hope in this devastating situation."
So there is the story. It's so sad and I feel so bad for her situation. If you would like to help at all or need more information, have questions, whatever....please email Emily at email@example.com. You are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as well. Even if you can't donate money (and any bit would help!), I am sure she would love a handmade card from you so she knows the love and support that exists for her and that people are thinking about her. (Hint, hint! :) ) So if you would like to do this, feel free to get in touch with me and I will give you my address to send the card. Then I will gather them all up and get them sent to her as they come in.
Thanks for taking the time to read this! Please let Emily know if you have any questions (email@example.com) or me (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Happy Holidays!!!

I actually really like this layout. I went with different blues and Chocolate Chip on all the cards I did. This idea came from this card. I used my square punches and then for the sailboat, I cut that out and popped it up on dimensionals. And then I LOVE LOVE that Bashful Blue striped ribbon that I think is SO baby boy. TOO CUTE, I think anyway. :) Also...the small stripe of Chocolate Chip on the bottom is actually on the inside. I just cut a small amount off the bottom of the front card. That way...you can see the Chocolate Chip on the inside when you open it. So the colors here are Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip.

This is the top of the box. In the middle of the snowflakes I put a Build A Brad. These are AMAZING! You just punch anything out using a 1/2" circle punch, put it on the metal post, and then put the clear bubble on top. Voila! A custom brad for whatever your project is! For the center of this brad, I punched a circle out of another sheet of Ski Slope Designer Series Paper.
Here is the box lid off the box...with the cards inside.
A side view of the box.
A close up of the Felt Flurry with the Build A Brad.
Here are the 4 cards that go in the box. So similar, yet so different. :)
This is a close up of just one of the cards.
Close up of the Felt Flurries. In the middle of 2 of the Felt Flurries, I put just a Rhinestone Brad. In the middle of 2 of the Felt Flurries, I put a Jumbo Eyelet and then a Rhinestone brad in the hole of the brad.
I even lined the envelopes! Wow....I'm going on the way with this one! :) But I lined the inside with the same DSP pattern that I put on the cards. And then I put a strip of DSP on the bottom of the front of the envelope.
Hope you enjoyed!
