And here is my card...


This card was based off of a card by Cynthia that I got to create in a shoebox swap while I was at Convention this year!  Cynthia was one of my roommates and I just LOVED her card!  I didn't have all of the same elements at home...so I created a little differently for today!

You can see her original card here.

Product Focus: Tag Topper Punches

Today over at SSINKspiration we are focusing on Tag Topper Punches.  These punches are great for creating elements of card or scrapbook pages, as well as create a simple tag for a Holiday Gift.

I created a cute little Christmas tag...


I used Tip Top Taupe cardstock and the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Stamp Set.

I love Red and Green together for Christmas projects and I'm so excited about Cucumber Crush this holiday season!  Today I paired it with Cherry Cobbler and I think it looks GREAT!  What do you think!

Mystery Supply Challenge

Today over at SSINKspiration we have a fun challenge for you!  Each Designer that signed up for this post was given 3 Mystery Items by another team member and then they had to create a project using all 3.  We could add in other items as we wanted but we HAD to use the 3 items that were sent to us!

Here is what Melissa sent me... 


We have Basic Black 3/8" Satin Ribbon, Celebrate Expressions Natural Element and a Die Cut in Silver Glimmer Paper using the Project Life Paper Clips Thinlints.

And here is what I created...


Can you find all 3 items?  My favorite is the Celebrate Embellishment.  How did I make it black?  I colored the wood embellishment with a black Sharpie and then added a little Crystal Effects on top.  It's so CUTE and now matched the ribbon perfectly!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure you head on over to the SSINKspiration main blog today!  There are a lot of samples from this challenge and I want to be sure that you see them all!

Sparkle & Shine

Hello Stampers!  Sorry that I've been missing for so long!  We just celebrated my son's 4th birthday this past week and as a crafter, I go all out for birthdays in my house.  I needed a break from creating for a while!  WHEW!

But I'm back today and we are talking about Sparkle & Shine over at SSINKspiration today!

When I saw the NEW Holiday Catalog, I fell in love with this stamp set...

Acorny Thank You!

I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it!  WOO HOO!!!  I love the idea of glitter tops on the acorns!!  That came from one of my Design Team friends!  So I used the coordinating punch to create them!!

You will be able to purchase this set on your very own in just a few short days...September 1st!!

But until then, head on over to the SSINKspiration main blog to see all of their fun creations with Sparkly and Glittery things!!!

Product Focus: Sequins

Today over at SSINKspiration we are focusing on Sequins!  There are so many ways that you can use our sequin products.  

Here is my card...


Can you spot the sequins?

I love to use sequins as a little embellishment in the corner of my cards!  You can usually find me using just 3 in a triangular pattern as you see above.  I once learned that groups should be odd in number.  That stuck with me, so it's now a habit!

Please take the time to head on over the the SSINKspiration main blog today!  You won't want to miss all of the ways that you can use Stampin' Up! sequins!!
