Gift Box Punch

Hello everyone!

I was surfing youtube for some inspiration when I fell upon this video.. I tried to link the video to my post but for some reason it's not working.. so I'm just gonna link it here ------> Gift Box Punch . I really like how quick and simple it is to create a box and not even need to use glue!! Would save alot of time and money instead of running to a store every time you need a box or bag for a gift :) Just saying.. check it out, looks pretty cool.

Christmas : Circle Swing Card

Circle Gate Fold Christmas Card 2

Circle Gate Fold Christmas Card

Creating a flower

On the picture above, I added some shading with Copic Markers.. 
I also added dimensions between the two levels of petals on the flower.

I used VersaMark on this Stampin' Up Stamp
Joyful Christmas Clear stamp set 131805 -- $20.95

I then added some gold embossing powder over the stamped VersaMark flower.
I used the Stampin' Up blow dryer over the embossed areas. 

In the picture below the flowers on the left are dlow dried.. 

Holiday Cards : Penguins!

Stampin' Up Shimmer

Stampin' Up Shimmer!!!
I absolutely LOVE this stuff.. I use it on everything now haha.. literally! 
Adds that perfect amount of shimmer on all your projects!

All you need to do is find a small spray bottle.. I got mine from the DollarStore. 
You then add a very small amount of the shimmer powder from the picture above 
and fill the rest of the bottle with peroxide. 
Make sure you shake the bottle really well then spray on any project!!

Below is a sample of what the shimmer looks like! I sprayed the cardstock on the right about 2-3 times.
I wanted to show how shimmery it can look. You can add a little or alot. 

Baby Boy Shower Card

I got the pregnant lady digi from Sassy Studio Designs.

I made this card as a request and I'm really happy with how it turned out. 

Wedding Card

I bought the bride and groom stamp from Stamping Bella.
Colored them in with Copic's, Markers, Glitter on the bottom of the dress and 
gold shimmer on the flowers in the bouquet and in her hair.

I blurred the inside message just because this card was a request and a personal message... Just wanted to show the layout of the card :)

Stampin' Up Cleaning Supplies

Have you ever wondered what to use to clean your dirty stamps?
Have you ever wondered how to wash off that sticky Versa Mark?..
Or even how to clean the StazOn off your stamps?

Check out the fallowing products,
While visiting my mother in law, I played around with some of the tools she
owns since I'm just starting off myself and this is definitively on my list of things to buy! 
Soooo useful and definitively saves your stamps.

Stampin' Scrub 7" x 7" (each tray side)
Extra-large size cleans even your largest stamps!
$23.95  -- 126200 
Picture above is what the case looks like inside. 
You use one side as your "wet" area and the other as your "dry" area.
So you clean it on one side and wipe it dry on the other. 
The pad looks dirty in the image but it's only because it's wet in the image. Once dried it goes back to clear.

The image below is what the case looks like when close. It's thin and easy to store standing up on a shelf.
For my mother in law, it was easier for her to write "wet" and "dry" on the front of the case instead of trying to find the little symbol inside each time. Just little tricks to make things even quicker and simpler.  

Stampin' Mist Stamp Cleaner 
$5.50 -- 102394 -- 2 fl. oz bottle
$11.95 -- 101022 -- 8 lf oz refill bottle
The picture above is the product you use to spray onto the Stampin' Scrub mat.
Just a few spritz and your good to go. 

StazOn Cleaner
Cleans, condition and even prevent staining on your stamps with StazOn ink.
$6.25 -- 109196 -- 2 fl oz bottle

Sorry no image for this one, if interested check out page 165 in your catalog.

Stampin' Up Owls on a wire

Close up 

I added some glossy accents to the hearts and to the owls feet.

Stampin' Up Coffee Cup: Thankful

I added shimmer then Glossy Accents over the sentiment

Depending on the way you hold up the card, you can really see the shimmer... 
and the black embossing stands out more.

Stampin' Up Owl: Love

Stampin' Up Owl Card: Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Owl Card

I added shimmer to all the edges on the card.. When you move the card the shimmer shines more.. so this picture shows a little bit more the shimmer since I was holding it on an angle. Looks really good in person.

Close up of the Owl. I used buttons for the balloons. 

I couldn't get the lighting right to take the right picture of this card.. Someday I'll own a better camera haha.
