Year of the Snake

Hi!!  Back with a picture to share my version of a Chinese li see...not too traditional, but fun!!

Stamps used:  MC-27 (Year of the Snake), Bamboo (CL-8 Friends) and B137 (Berry Swirl).

New Cling Stamps!!!

Hey there...time for some new stamps!!!  I know it's not even Halloween yet, but here are a few stamps for those of you already looking ahead to 2013...the Year of the Snake!!

The next 2 stamps can be used year-round...but I made the frame the right size to fit those 1-/2" x 1-3/4" mini calendars.  You can scroll down to see a sample.

Here's  MC-38 (Sakura Frame) used as a favor with a vellum window.

I'll try to be back soon with a "Year of the Snake" sample...thanks for taking a peek today!!!

Happy Trick or Treating!!!

Whenever I'm stuck for an idea, I end up going through some old projects...drag them out, dust them off and try them again.  Is that cheating?  Oh's one from awhile ago...maybe it'll give you a creative spark!!

It's a candy bar card...pull the ribbons apart to reveal a surprise!!!

Gift Bag? Card?

A little of both!!  Looks like a gift bag from the outside:

Open it up and there's space for a greeting and a note on the inside (along with some treats!!):

I used a 3" x 4" cello bag to fill with treats...then just staple under the top and bottom tabs.  Use velcro to close and add a handle!!!

Stamps used:  C125 (Elliot the Pirate), B129 (Vampire Baxter), 705 (Trick or Treat) and A127 (I Vant)

oops...almost forgot the here.  Have a great night!!!

Hawaiian Christmas

A little bit of Hawaiian Christmas spirit to send during the holidays...

I wove some 3/8" strips of tan card stock to look like a lauhala background:

And a gift tag:

I popped up the flowers and the smaller tag for a more dimensional's a close-up:

All stamps for these two projects are from MC-36 (Hawaiian Christmas).  Thanks for stopping by today!!!
