Back in October, Shannon had a great gift idea for Christmas. TAGS. I decided that is what I would be giving neighbors this year.
Here I am mid project after tag #800 and wondering what I had gotten myself into!
And here is the finished project:
Delightful Decorations Stamp Set (2009 Holiday Mini)
Christmas Punch Stamp set (hostess set)
Oval punch, square punch, ornament punch, tag punch
Kraft, white, Real Red and Old Olive paper
Real Red polka dot grosgrain ribbon
SU Clear envelopes
Fiskars paper crimper
My fingers were a little sore after all the punching and tying of the ribbon. I did have one neighbor tell me she loved it so much that she wasn't going to use them, just look at them. And another neighbor actually used one of them on their gift to us :) That made it ALL worth it. Now that I have all the stuff, I can do it again. I just need a year to recover!

Here she is stamping and showing her creations from p.208 in the catalog (under $10 stamps). See how professional this production is? A cameraman and everything!
We are proud to say that Shannon is our friend and demonstrator. She did a great job and didn't even seem nervous presenting in front of all those people. She gets two thumbs up in our book...but we're not biased or anything!

This was the first one I tried and made such a mess of it that i went back after and figured out how to make it work. Zoey chose the DSP so I made it for her.
Not the cutest cards I've ever made but they were fun and I want to try some more.....
I used an Eiffel Tower stamp set from a far inferior stamp company--but it was the best one I had so it had to do....however I just got Stampin' Up!'s newest Eiffel Tower stamp, and I seriously cannot wait to use it! It will definitely be on one of our club projects this month!

I stamped the side of the cupcake exactly on the fold of cardstock--so it was a darling little cucake card (you can see the back of it in the above picture). Then I restamped the image on DSP and cut out just the frosting so that it looked perfect! Lastly I added the cherry on top and a little bling.

I loved they way they turned out so I wanted to share them w/all ya'll. :)

This first one uses the Rockabilly paper--that has some glossy stuff on each page....I paired it with the Tart & Tangy stamp set...
You can sort of see that I've also lined the inside of the envelope with the same shiny, cherry paper. I got a card from my friend Lacey this week--it was such a fabulous card with the same idea--DSP on the inside of the envelope that matched the card. So I immediately stole that idea and this card is the result. :) (Lacey, there is one on its way to you!)
This next card was inspired by one of the cards we made in Virginia, during the card class that Robin Merriman did for my friends. I took the same idea--Manhattan flower die--and just changed the colors a little to incorporate Parisian Breeze DSP.

I loved how the watercoloring of these cards turned out so I thought I'd post it. :)
The kit came w/Perfect Plum, Brocade (or it might be Ballet) Blue & Always Artichoke watercolor wonder crayons. I used the Blue one first then did layer of Plum after the Blue dried. Here's a close-up....

I made a sympathy card for my card group at work and I copied Vanessa's wild wasabi card. (She didn't post one like this one.)
