Clean and Simple Card



Today's card is one that was very easy to put together.  Just pick any of your favorite patterned papers for the background add a decorative strip just under half way at the bottom, and then stamp your sentiment on one of our decorative label dies and adhere!   Piece of cake!  You can change it up for any occasion or color choice!

For this card I used:
Scallop Trim Border Punch #118402
Labels Collection Framelits #125598
Apothecary Art Stamp Set #125527 clear, #125525 wood


Happy Stamping!

Yummy Lemon Bars from Pinterest

Today's post is not about stamping, but it is about another one of my loves.....baking.

I just made these yummy Lemon bars that I found on Pinterest.


They were super easy and required only two ingredients!  (well, three if you include the powdered sugar that I put on top)

For more information and directions please visit my personal blog at www.wittsend5.blogspot.com

Butterflies & Branches


Today I would like to share another technique with you!  Did you know that you can use the negatives of the pieces you cut out?

This pretty card was made by stamping the branches with the Little Leaves Sizzlits die.  
I cut the image three times on the green card stock and used the negative to build the card base.  
A sheet of contrasting paper was placed behind the cut images so that the branches would show up clearly.  Both of these layers were then adhered to a piece of patterned paper.  All of this paper was from the Summer Smooches Designer Paper collection.  A strip of Whisper White Card Stock, cut with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, was used as a border along the bottom.  
The butterflies were cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die
Once the butterflies were cut out, I folded them in half and used a glue dot to fasten them to the front of the card.  A small strip of Dazzling Details was dabbed in the center of each butterfly.

Supplies Used:
Summer Smooches Designer Paper #125409
Little Leaves Sizzlits Die #114511
Scallop Border Punch #118402
Beautiful Wings Embosslits #118138
Dazzling Details Glitter Adhesive #124117

Have you seen the cute kit that Stampin' Up! has put together for Halloween?  It is called the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle.  This bundle includes the Googly Ghouls Stamp set and the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit.

The Googly Ghouls stamp set includes 6  stamp images.

The Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit has everything you need to make treat bags for your trick-or-treaters.  You get:

  • 20 printed double-sided tags
  • 10 glassine bags with die-cut edges
  • 50 adhesive-backed googly eyes
  • 10 pieced of 8" Pumpkin Pie & whisper white striped baker's twine.
Bundled together you get it all!!
The cost for the whole kit-n-kaboodle is only $16.95 for the Clear mount bundle and $20.95 for the wood mount bundle.


These would be so cute as little Halloween gifts for your co-workers, teachers, or your trick-or-treaters, and would be a fun craft to do with your children!

Here are some ideas from some other very talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators on how they used this set....

Christmas in Blue

This Christmas card was made with the "Ornaments Keepsakes Bundle"  which includes the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp set and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies that go with it.  There is a die to make cutting out each stamp shape easy as pie.

I like Blue Christmas Cards, so I decided to use the Comfort Cafe Designer paper instead traditional Christmas paper.


The brad in the center of the bow was covered with Dazzling Details to give it a little sparkle. 




Supplies used:

Ornament Keepsakes Bundle #129949 wood, or #129950 Clear mount
Ink - Midnight Muse #126860
Dazzling Details - #124117
Pearl Basic Jewels - #119247 

*note - the Ornaments stamp set and framelits dies are both available separately, but when you buy them as a bundled set, you save 15%.

Anniversary Card

Hi Friends!  Well, I just changed the look of my blog. (again!)  What do you think?  I found that as my blog grew, I needed a wider format so I could add an extra column.  I tried to go for a soft neutral color so that it would be easy on the eye.  Do you like it?

This was a special week.  Thursday was my anniversary!  My sweet husband and I have been married for 26 years!  Wow!....time goes by so fast!

Here is a picture of the card I made for him.....
 

And the flowers he surprised me with....  Aren't they adorable??!!  This puppy reminds me so much of my dog, Ruby, except Ruby is grey! 

We decided to wait till the weekend to celebrate, so last night he took me to one of my favorite restaurants....The Cheesecake Factory!  They have a salad there that I really like called the Santa Fe Chicken Salad.  The dressing on that salad is soooo good!  I must learn how to make it!  After dinner we were going to see a movie, but missed the start time by just a few minutes, so we decided we would come back another night for that.  

Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Stamping!

A Soft "Shabby" Card


Everyone loves this "shabby chic" card using the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder!
I like the soft colors, the texture, and the way I aged the paper by wiping brown ink around the edges


The embossed section of the card  and the little tag were both cut with the Labels Collection Framelits.

To add a little interest on the satin bow, I wrapped the center in Pool Party Bakers Twine.
The card was then embellished with pearls.


Supplies used for this card - 
Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper #126898
Pool Party Card Stock
Elements of Style Stamp set  #118611 wood or #120045 clear
Satin Ribbon - this is retired, but you could  use the whisper white taffeta ribbon #109070
Pool Party Baker's Twine #125574
Labels Collection Framelits - #125598
Petals-a-plenty embossing folder #116824
Pearl Basic Jewels # 119247


Happy Stamping!
