Glitter Poppy the owl Cloze Pinnie

This is a more elegant version of yesterday's post where I used glitter paper for 'Poppy the Owl" from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  It is a clothes pen underneath with a magnet on the back .... can you tell it is hanging on my refrigerator!!  It can be used as a decoration for the holidays to add a recipe, photo or note to your file cabinet or refrigerator or locker!  It is holding a matching small envelope and note card that a gift card will fit into.  Use this for gifting a monetary gift or add it as the closure to a gift bag with the note card as a card inside.  Great small gift idea for giving your tips to your service people this holiday season.

Gift card cloze pinnies - Santa Owl

New items alert!!!  This will be a new item that I am making to sell at my fall craft shows this year (see my dates above under 'Where to find me').  It is a magnetic clothes pin (cloze pinnie) decorated for the holidays with a small envelope and note card the size of a gift card attached to the clothes pin.  These would be great to use on a gift bag to close the top and then use the note card for a card enclouser OR as a gift itself with a gift card or money added OR just as a small gift to gift to someone special without anything but your kind words added.  For this one I used the 'Poppy the owl' die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the 'Stitched Circles' from My Favorite Things Designs.  The Santa Hat is a stamp I have had for a while which is cut out and off or an Snoppy image.  I will be posting more for you to see this week.

How exciting!!!!!

I received an email this morning telling me I was selected to be the featured stamper on ODBD's blog and Splitcoast Stampers today!!!  It's that exciting news!!!   The second photo was the card that was selected.  We made this at my Stamp-a-Stack last Sunday.   The woman all make 15 cards, three of each of five designs, and this was one of the designs.  I also had the (top photo) stepped-up version of this card in the basket so they could make it more detailed at home later by coloring the image and adding greens above the words.  I thought since this card was selected I should post the stepped-up version of the card on my blog also.  If you need to make 50-100 cards for the holidays I would use the second card but if you only need a few then you can spend more time on them and step them up a notch.

Thanks to ODBD and Splitcoast Stampers!

Gingerbread Fun



This is the last one ... for now!!! It is a two page accordion card using the die from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Katie label Accordion Die.  I used a retired stamp set from The Angel Company, a white gel pen and colored Wink of Stella glitter pens to add the color.

O' Christmas Tree

























Here is another tree page accordion card with the same die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I also used the dies from the Evergreen Pivot card, a punch for the snowflakes by Martha Stewart and the word stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  These are really fun and easy to assemble card after you figure out what you want to use in the card and have them die cut!  More to come.

Poppy 'n Holly Accordion Card


Here is another card made with the Katie Label Accordion Die by Karen Burniston through Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I used the die to add the stitching lines along the edges and added embellishments with a holly punch by Martha Stewart.  It is an A2 card and fits in a regular envelope!  The words are from a retired TAC set.  I will be selling cards like this at my fall craft shows.

Little cabin in the woods

This is a three page accordion card made with the same die, Katie Label by Karen Burniston through Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I also used the dies from Holiday House & Evergreen Pivot from ECD.  Don't the little corners on the front of the card add a lot to the card!  I am thinking I need to add some glitter on the trees for snow too.  The word stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I sell all of the products to make this card and we may be doing a class on some of these also if anyone is interested.
