Stocking Builder Punch is Almost Gone Forever!

If you love the Stocking Builder Punch in the current Holiday Mini, you only have until January 3, 2012 to get it! Actually, it's while supplies last.  Once they're inventory is gone, the punch is gone forever!  Stampin' Up! just announced this morning that it WILL NOT be in the next Idea Book & Catalog.  To order it, and anything else you might want, please click the link below.

Side note:  I'm so sorry that I haven't posted any projects lately.  I've been super busy at church and getting ready for Christmas.  My family has also been dealing with being sick for the last 2 or 3 months (including me).  We're finally getting over a sinus/chest congestion virus that just won't go away, and now, my oldest woke up this morning with the awful stomach flu that's going around here in Central Indiana.  I really miss posting projects, and will start posting more as soon as I can.  I'm ready for things to get back to normal!

If I don't get a chance to post again before Christmas, I want to wish you all a very blessed, and Merry Christmas!

MOJO 216

Boy, has it been a long time since I've posted a project!  I'm sorry about that, but things have been busy around here again.  I thought I'd get back into it by participating in the MOJO216 sketch that came out Monday.

The stamp set I used is called Snow Swirled (p. 38).  If you look at the close-up picture below, you can see that the snowflakes are shiny.  I embossed the images with Wild Wasabi and Cherry Cobbler emboss powders (p. 201).  I also put a Basic Rhinestone Jewel (p. 198) in the middle of each one.  The card is very shimmery in person.  It's also hard to tell in the picture, but the greeting banner is raised in the middle to make it look like a flag rippling in the breeze.  The Wild Wasabi strip on the left was embossed with the Petals-A-Plenty Impressions Folder (p. 219).  The beautiful designer paper is in the Holiday Mini, and it's called Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (p. 20).

 Stamps:  Snow Swirled set

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler Classic ink pad & VersaMark ink pad

Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, & Very Vanilla card stock; Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (Mini)

Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Petals-A-Plenty Impressions Folder, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Heat Tool, Cherry Cobbler emboss powder, Wild Wasabi emboss powder, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Dasher is Back!

What a week!  I was wanting to post earlier this week, but just wasn't able to.  I'm so glad it's Friday again!  I used this week's card sketch on SCS as inspiration for this card, SC354.

Today's card features my favorite reindeer, Dasher (p. 19).  The greeting stamp is from the Christmas Greetings set (p. 41).  This is the first card that I've made with the beautiful Christmas paper, Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (p. 20 in the Holiday Mini).  The right border of the Red/Green strip was made with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (p. 211).

Notice how I made some of Dasher's antlers red?  I first inked up the whole stamp with Chocolate Chip ink.  I then removed the ink on the parts I wanted red with a blender pen.  Then, I inked up these parts with a Real Red marker.  It's much faster and easier than inking up the whole stamp with markers.  I also sponged around Dasher with Crumb Cake ink.

Stamps:  Dasher & Christmas Greetings

Ink:  Chocolate Chip & Crumb Cake Classic ink pads; Real Red Stampin' Write Marker

Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler, & Very Vanilla card stock; Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (Mini)

Accessories:  Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, Blender Pen & Stamping Sponges

The Sounding Joy

Happy Friday everyone!  We've been having beautiful weather here in Indiana the past few days, and it's supposed to continue through the weekend and beyond.  Sunshine and highs in the low 80's.  I'm not used to temps like that in October, but I'll take it.

It may be warm outside, but I've been working on some Christmas cards.  Below is the first card I've made with The Sounding Joy set (p. 23 in the Holiday Mini).  I also used some other fun goodies from the Holiday Mini.  I embossed the Marina Blue strip with the Snow Burst Impressions Folder (p. 33), used Pewter Emboss Powder (p. 31) to heat emboss the main image, made the holly with the Stocking Accents Originals Die (p. 24), and made the leaf veins with Dazzling Details (p. 41).  I also used the Red Glimmer Paper (p. 41 in Holiday Mini & p. 181 in the big catty) for the holly berries.  Oh, I almost forgot!  I also used ribbon from the Holiday Mini called Early Espresso 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon (p. 30).

I used the very cute Christmas paper, Letters to Santa DSP (p. 186).  I put a 4" x 1-1/2" strip of this paper onto the bottom of the Top Note Bigz Die (p. 222) and ran it through.  I also ran a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" pieces of Old Olive and Naturals White card stock through with the same die.  I trimmed the white one down, cutting along the perforrated part of the die-cut.  I stamped and embossed it first, and then attached it to the Old Olive die-cut.  I then attached the DSP die-cut strip, added the ribbon, and then added the holly die-cuts.  The whole thing was added on top of the blue/brown strip using 4 Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 206).

Stamps:  The Sounding Joy set (Mini)

Ink:  Riding Hood Red Classic Ink Pad & VersaMark Pad

Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Old Olive, & Naturals White card stock; Letters to Santa DSP & Red Glimmer Paper

Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Top Note Bigz Die, Stocking Accents Originals Die (Mini), Snow Burst Impressions Folder (Mini), Early Espresso 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon (Mini), Heat Tool, Pewter Emboss Powder (Mini), Dazzling Diamonds (Mini), & Stampin' Dimensionals
