Texturz Wedding Dress

I used the Texturz plate on very vanilla paper and then cut it to look like a wedding dress. Also used the Pretties kit on this, such a nice container of stuff that is. Died the flower with vanilla craft ink. Wow, today has been a busy stamping day!

Sweet Treats Turkey

I love these Sweet Treat cups. Here is my little Turkey friend. The large oval is a non-SU punch that you could use a die cut for, but the others are:
colored feathers - large oval
brown feathers - scallop circle
hole for treat cur - 1 3/4" circle punch
I have seen the snowflake punch used for the feet but I don't have it.

Mousie Wedding

It had to be done. I love these little guys! I don't think I like them as well with eyes but it seemed appropriate to have their eyes open while they got married! She needs to be a little prettier I think...

Mousie Thanksgiving

So... I think I'm obsessed with this little mouse. I just needed to make him eating some Thanksgiving turkey! Check my other mouse post to see the pieces to make him. Soon, I might need a little girlie mouse to be his friend...

Razzleberry Paper Flower

This is my paper flower. I saw this video tutorial and just had to try it (Not my tutorial). Not too bad for my first try! This is the five petal flower punch. Also the vase is the ornament punch, I love that punch!

Acorn Ornament Punch Card

This acorn card is made using punches!
I love the ornament punch which is the main body of the acorn. For the top, you need two punches. First you punch out half of the large oval on the edge of a piece of paper, then using the wide oval punch you punch around it. This is the piece that you will use for the top. Refer to the picture below. You will not use the bottom piece from the large oval punch.

The leaves are from the Leaves#2 Die Cut with scores for the veins using the cutter kit keychain. This was also used to rough up the edges of the paper. I love this tool!
So simple! Enjoy!

Christmas Carol Mouse

I saw this mouse on Ellen Kemper's site and I just had to play around with him! He is so cute! I made mine a carolling Christmas mouse. This little guy is all punches so I will tell you whats what. Sorry, no time for step by step pictures today.

Ears - butterfly punch - cut in half gives you 2 ears
Head - ornament punch
Body - wide oval
Mouth - small oval punch with end cut down
Nose - small heart in Heart to Heart punch with a little trimmed off the point
Feet - 3/4 inch circle punch - cut in half gives you 2 feet
Arms/hands - small oval punch - cut in half gives you 2 arms, folded to make the hand holding toe carols
Hat brim - scallop oval punch using one of the curved ends
red part of hat - square punch with a little trimmed off
Pom pom on hat - could use the trio flower punch but I don't have it
Cookies - wide oval and then cut down a little again
Choc. chips - end of small heart from the Heart to Heart punch
Tail - cut free hand using the wide oval punch to go around
Tooth - freehand
Carol book - freehand
Plate - freehand
The wording I printed off the computer.
Hope you like him!

Birdhouse Ornament

Looking around the internet I have seen a couple of these Birdhouse Ornaments. I new I just had to try my own version of one. I tend to never do anything halfway so I ended up writing the entire tutorial to do it!! I have also made a template for you to print out for the main house so you don't have to measure!

Everything you need is in the link below! Happy Ornament making! If you change it around send me a picture, I love to see how creative people can be.

Make sure you print the birdhouse template with no scaling, do not print to 'fit to page'. It is the right size for the project already.

Paste this into your browser or CLICK HERE to get just the template, it is also in the directions!

Ornament Holder Pop Up Box

This is my Ornament Holder Box, I have also seen it called an origami pop up box. I had seen it using 12" x 12" paper and wanted to make it smaller to fit on an 8 1/2" x 11" paper. I don't have every color in the big size and I wanted to be able to make it out of any color I wanted! Click on the title or CLICK HERE to get the step by step directions with photos! I thought it would be the perfect box to hold my punch ornaments! Here is the link to them:

Inspired by Nature with Black Magic Technique

Black Magic Technique

I have seen a bunch of cards with images stamped on black or dark cardstock that really show up good. I finally figured out how to do it!
The technique is called black magic and it is really easy.

What you will need:
dark cardstock
Whisper White craft ink #101731
Watercolor Pencils #101879
(I think the Watercolor Crayons work as well)

First stamp your image in whisper white craft ink on your dark cardstock. Let it dry completely!

Color in your image with the watercolor pencils or crayons.

Then just use it on your card as desired! It's that easy!
