Festival of Trees and Washi Tape


Today's card is also from our World Card Making Day party...I will eventually get them all posted.

Washi Tape Background
The background was made with strips of Stampin' Up! Washi tape...Gingham Garden (pink and yellow)  Witches Brew (text) and All is Calm (green triangles). The Gingham Garden and Witches Brew Washi tapes were both on the Stampin' Up! clearance rack and the All is Calm Washi tape is in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.

Read Before You Tape
When I made this card, I liked the way the text on the Witches Brew Washi tape looked...I didn't think anyone would actually read it...they did...talk of haunted houses, witch hunts and death don't exactly go with the Christmas feel I was looking for.

Note: Witches Brew Washi tape is sold out on the clearance rack and no longer available.

Festival of Trees
The "A Merry Little Wish..." sentiment and the star on top of the tree were stamped with the photopolymer stamps included in the bundle. Instead of stamping the Christmas tree, I ran a piece of Old Olive cardstock through the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder and then punched out the tree.

I like that you can use products in a variety of ways...not only the way they are bundled. The Christmas tree would also look good punched from a piece of designer paper.

Hello Fall!

Hello Fall!
Living in Florida, I haven't experienced a real Fall in 25 years. So, my youngest daughter and I traveled to Upstate NY to visit my oldest daughter and to have some Fall fun!  We have been to the apple orchard, two pumpkin patches and hiked a mountain to see some fall leaves. We return to Florida on Monday but according to the weatherman, we may see a little snow here on Saturday. 

For All Things
Today's card is one we made on World Card Making Day..,Yes, I am still working on getting them posted. I'm a little behind...as usual.

It was created with the Stampin' Up! For All Things photopolymer stamp set. I have to say that this is one of my top two items from the holiday catalog...For All Things and Fall Fest Bundle...but it is Fall...maybe my favorites will shift to Christmas items soon...I can be fickle like that. :-)

Give Thanks Thanksgiving Tags


These sweet Thanksgiving tags will be perfect tied around bags of home baked treats. I might even use them on the Thanksgiving dinner table, tied around napkins for unique napkin rings.

Instructions:
  • Stamp pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and stamp leaf in Old Olive ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock
  • Cut out leaves and pumpkins with Big shot and Fall Fest dies.
  • Stamp "give thanks" on kraft cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink and cut out with Big Shot and Bitty Banners framelit die
  • Cut approximately 2" piece of burlap ribbon and fray edges slightly. 
  • Mount burlap on 2.25" of Chocolate Chip cardstock with sticky strip.
  • Attach die cut pieces with glue dots.
Notes:
  • In case you noticed, I used some retired textured chocolate chip cardstock that I found in my stash...the current smooth cardstock will work just fine.
  • To string my tags, I used dark brown crochet thread.
