Festive Flurry Treat Holder

Here's a great treat holder made with Festive Flurry Stamp Set!  The original idea is from
Dawn Olchefske's blog.  She made hers using Chicklets packets but I wasn't able
to find those.  This is a Peppermint gum packet...a little thicker than a Chicklets box so
its a little bulkier.  This slot is made with the Word Window Punch. and I had to punch
several times to make the insert wider for the box to fit.  The snowflakes are stamped
in Bermuda Bay and popped up with Dimensionals.  The large snowflake is cut with
framelits and Silver Glimmer paper and topped with Frosted Finishes Embellishments.
The belly band is embossed with Stylish Stripes embossing folder and a rhinestone is
placed at the point.

Endless Wishes

Endless Wishes is one of our new Photopolymer stamp sets.  I usually don't buy clear stamps
because I don't like the impression as well as the rubber stamps, however, these new stamps
are just as great!  The background on this card was done using one of our clear blocks directly
on Classic Ink-Tempting Turquoise or you can use a brayer for a not so splotchy background.
It's hard to see but there are rhinestones on the snowflakes!

Another Thank You

Heres a very simple Thank You card using our newest Photopolymer Stamp Sets called
"Another Thank You" #133454.  This is a set of 10 different stamps.  I used some of those
stamps and just place them all on one block.  Cardstock and Ink is Melon Mambo.  There
is a little rhinestone in one of the hearts.  This is the first Photopolymer stamp set that I have
purchased only because I prefer the rubber stamps, but I was very surprised to see that the
images come out just as great!  I know some of the clear stamps you buy at the "M" store don't
stamp too great, but this is a great value!

Smoky Slate.  The background is embossed with Stylish Stripes embossing folder.

Convention Buddies

I have to post some pictures from convention!  I know they're a little late but here's my
buddies!  From Left:  Linda Gutierrez, Donna, Ruth Bingle, Katy Simetcka, Barbara Nagle,
Luann MacDonald, Yolanda Sandoval and me! 

Magnificent Maple

I know I haven't posted in quite some time but you know how it is....life happens.
I know for me, once we get back from Convention, you're on fire, ready to hit the ground
running...so here goes....lets see how long I can keep this up! LOL

This card is using Magnificent Maple, a new stamp fro the Holiday Happiness Mini Catalog.
It uses Crumb Cake and Vanilla carstock and the DSP is Sweater Weather, also from the new
mini.  I used New In-Color Baked Brown Sugar to stamp the leaf and the Gorgeous Grunge
stamp set is used for the background, stamped in Crumb Cake.  I sponged the edges a little with
Baked Brown Sugar.  The trim is the 7/16 trim in the main catalog, it has that burlap look to it.
The greeting is from the Truly Grateful stamp set, stamped in Early Expresso. I've also used Naturals
Designer Buttons and Chocolate Chip Bakers twine.
