Nugget Firecrackers

Yesterday I showed you a #freedom card made using the scraps from this project. I found the idea for this shape of treat giveaway on Pinterest, thanks to Kay Cogbill.

There is a very thin strip of card stock between the nuggets that is topped with two stars. (I used Tear and Tape to secure the candies together and catch the 1/16" star wand. 

I made my own paper by stamping on Very Vanilla card stock. I cut the paper into 1" strips and wrapped them around two Hershey Nugget candies.

I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. Two of the candles were my firecrackers, and the sprinkles and baby triangles were my sparks. I used Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler inks to stamp.

I'm glad you came by today! Thank you! Please leave a comment so I know you were here, won't you?

I found myself with this "window" sitting on my desk, I decided to make a shaker card. Now, I am not very good at making them! But I had an idea for using all these negative star strips left over from another project (you will see tomorrow). Also, the print behind the window is leftover (from same project) 1" strips of designer series paper that I created myself. I used the Perfect Birthday candles and confetti to look like firecrackers. They are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy ink.

The card is for my son, whose favorite holiday is 4th of July.

Also looks very nice in Black and White! 

It's a good thing that I don't make more than one 4th of July card! This one took quite awhile and I would not have been able to duplicate it over and over without going a little crazy!

Thanks for looking. Please leave a comment so I know what you think of my project.

Abstract Impressions Kindness and Love

These are my very first attempts using the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set, new in the Annual Catalog. To coordinate, Stampin' Up! has created this gorgeous Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, which comes in an 8" x 8" stack. These are just two of the 24 different patterns in the pack, which has 48 sheets total and costs just $11. 

You could create at least two cards from each sheet, that is almost 100 cards! Or get fancy and use larger pieces and coordinate different patterns together on one card. Use those little skinny scraps and the Classic Label punch for a fun background behind a sentiment. 

This card is dressed up with the floral cut out (looks like lace) using the coordinating Springtime Impressions Thinlits. Oh, my! You hardly need anything else on the front of your card!

The star of this card is the beautiful butterfly using the same Springtime Impressions Thinlits. It easily makes a bold statement on this card. Dressed up with some Silver Faceted Gems it really delivers your greeting in style.

I love that Stampin' Up! provides all the tools we need to design beautiful projects like the cards above. When you are ready to bundle your savings, please use my Online Store and have your items shipped right to your door.

Half Full Hospitality

Next month I will be traveling to the California wine country and I plan on leaving some cards along the way to thank winemakers for their hospitality. I love that the Half Full stamp set has plenty of options for sentiments, wine glasses of different sizes and also a Christmas greeting and holly. It's good year round! 

I CASED this card from the catalog, but I used my own designer series paper and I used Rich Razzleberry for my card base instead of the new Merry Merlot. 

The hardest part of this card was waiting for the White Craft Ink to dry! I used my Stampa-Ma-Jig to line up those wine glasses perfectly (six glasses per stamp) and so I needed to wait of each one to dry so I could lay down the sheet for placement. I cut out my chalkboard tag using the Scallop Tag Topper punch before stamping and embossing it (again using the Stampa-Ma-Jig) for perfect placement.

Thanks for looking today! I'd love you to Shop with me any time.
