Friday Favorites 11/30

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a day with family which is always nice. Today is our Friday Favorites and while I am sharing our embossing folders with you. I love how they can really step up a card, my real Friday favorite is the feeling you get and give when you receive a hand stamped card. As a stamper I can make a card that expresses joy, encouragement and so much more. This card is going to a special friend who needs just a pick me up and I think we all need those from time to time. Now onto the supplies. The colors are Raspberry Ripple and Smoky Slate. The Embossing Folder is Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing folder. Did you know that are embossing Folders are only $7.95 and you can use them for more than just dry embossing. I will have some idea for you next week. The rest of the supplies are: Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set, Really Good Greetings Stamp Set, Deco Labels Framelits, Whisper White Card Stock, and Whisper White Organza Ribbon sponged with Smoky Slate Ink.  I am going to be offering this card in January at my Thinking of you Class. I may change up the colors but the layout will stay the same. I hope you take a moment and head over to the SSINKspiration Blog to see everyone else's Friday Favorites and have a wonderful day! Thanks Tonya

Friday Framelits Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello and welcome to Friday Framelits! I love our Framelits and I use them on most of my cards but on this one I may have gotten just a bit carried away with them. The supply list includes: Special Season Stamp Set, Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock, Old Olive Card Stock, Cherry Cobbler Card Stock, Chocolate Chip Card Stock, Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker, Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker, Old Olive Stamp Pad, 2 Way Glue, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Whisper White Card Stock, Bitty Banners Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits, Oval Collection Framelits, and Circle Card Thinlits. Now of course you don't have to have four different Framelits sets to make a great card and I will share with you a similar card next week that uses the same basic supplies but with only a few of the framelits. Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the other great samples on the SSINKspiration blog. Have a great day! Tonya

November Stylin' Stampin' Squad Hop!

 Thank you so much for joining us for the November Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop! This month our projects focus on Christmas. While we have yet to give thanks this month, some of us are already thinking about sending Christmas cards, what kind of packaging to present gifts in and how we want to deck our halls. On this month’s blog hop we are showcasing many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Holiday Catalog. You will see everything from cards to gift tags to 3-D d├ęcor and gift packaging. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own.

Remember you can order all of the products showcased from your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

You should have just left stop 7 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Stamping With Kim. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
Are you ready for a couple of quick projects that will add just a little bit of extra sparkle to your holidays? Then check out my card and gift bag below. The card came together fairly quickly and would be a fun one to make multiples of if you are still looking for a card design for this year. The supplies are: Smoky Slate Card stock, Pool Party Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, Top Note Bigz Die, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, Expressions Thinlits Dies, Frosted Finishes Embellishments, 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack and Silver Glimmer Paper.
For my 3D items I decided to dress up a plain white gift bag. You know you have some around the house and these happen to be retired Stampin'UP! bags from years ago that I found in my stash. I used the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack again and cut out strips to go across my bag to make "ribbon". I then used the Gift Bow Bigz Die (which is on sale this week) to cut out my bow and I added Frosted Finishes Embellishment to the center of the bow before I added it to my bag. I sponged the edges of the bag just a bit with Pool Party Ink to make the bag stand out a bit more but really it is rather simple and now all I need is a gift for the bag. 

Close up of the bow above and the full bag below. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will head over to Diana's Blog. The next button below will take you there. Have a great day! Tonya

Tape Technique

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are ready for a fun new Technique that I have to share with you today. It is the masking tape technique but I didn't use masking tape on either of my projects. I used Washi Tape and Duct Tape. The first project I used Washi Tape to make the plaid background. I used two different pieces of tape that were slightly different in width and I would ink up one with Chocolate chip then leave it on the paper while I then added the piece with the Cajun Craze. I would leave that piece and then add the Chocolate Chip piece on the other side moving across the card stock until I had reached the end. I then did the same thing going perpendicular to the first rows. It created this neat plaid design.  
One the second card I took a piece of Duct tape and tore it into three strips length wise and then used the ink pads to add the stripes. You can see the difference in the texture of the duct tape which is fun. I will have to find my masking tape to see what I can create with it. For more details and a supply list be sure and stop by the SSINKspiration blog as I am the Designer Featured today. Thanks for stopping by, Tonya
