#imbringingbirthdaysback with Falling for Leaves

Today’s card is one I made to send out for my October birthdays – the set just seemed to be a perfect choice with this beautiful maple leaf.

This stamp set as wonderful on its own, but also has a coordinating die set, Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies which gives you even more options.

I’ve made a quick tutorial for you.

Trick or Tweet Folding Box

I love these little folding boxes that I shared with you the other day – so this time I’ve created one using the Trick or Tweet stamp set. After all we need to scare up some chocolate, right? And I couldn’t resist this little guy – he just makes me smile.

When you open up the lid and you’ll get a Halloween greeting and

Chocolate of course, (although you could put all kinds of things inside since it’s a pretty roomy box  if your guys don’t love chocolate.) I found these Russel Stover Carmel Brownie pumpkins at my local Ingles and couldn’t resist pickup up a few as gifts family.

(Sorry I think my photos are a bit off, it’s another rainy day here in Georgia which doesn’t my photo I hoping it’s just my screen.)

I’ve created a PDF tutorial with a complete supply list for you and of course, you can see the video on how to create this Folding Box HERE.

Trick or Tweet Treat Box

I love to make little treat items for family and friends and so when I saw the Trick or Tweets stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I knew it would be perfect for this year’s Halloween treats.

Check out this cute little box I made using the set

My fellow stamper, Pam gave this cute little box idea last spring and so I wanted to give it a try myself. Turns out these little boxes are sooooo easy to make, that they are kind of addictive once you get going.

Or at least I couldn’t stop – LOL!  The images and color combinations were just a lot of fun to play with once I got coloring with my Stampin’ Blends.

I thought you might like to try some too for your treats so I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial.

And of course I’ve included a complete supply list on my PDF tutorial for you.

Why not leave me a comment and let me know which combination is your favorite?

Take Your Pick Tool Box Tutorial

Have you seen the Take Your Pick Tool in the Holiday catalog on page 30? I’m so excited about this tool with all it’s features. I’m using it all the time!

Not only can you pick up small items with the Putty end, you have a spatula so you can  pick up adhered card stock layers, a paper piercer and stylus. As usual Stampin’ Up! has done it again – creating a high quality tool to make our paper crafting easier. What could be better?

A lovely box to hold it and keep everything together of course. I went looking for a way to keep all the pieces together and here is what I came up with.

These boxes are easy to make and will keep everything together for you in one place. I really like the way my first box turned out, so much so I decided to add a magnetic flap to it – so you’ve got two options when making your own.

Here is a video tutorial for you, the PDF so you can print your own Take Your Pick Tool label and a PDF tutorial with the complete supply list.

Take Your Pick Tool Box Tutorial –

And I’ve given you cutting measurements in the PF for both the magnetic flap I’ve shown you and the non magnetic flap. Making it easy to create the version you’d like for your space.

Dashing Deer Easel Card & the Holiday Catalog Kick Off

Today’s card is the final project  we made during my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and it is a fancy fold. I love the fact that we can create 3d cards using just ink and card stock! For me it’s one of the things that make paper crafting so much fun!

The Dashing Deer Bundle of products coordinates with this month’s Host Special – the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper which is perfect for projects like this since it contains multiple sheets of the same patterns. The images in this set are lovely, but when teamed up with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies your options are endless.

This card uses a fancy fold called the Easel Fold and I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial show how this quick and easy fold is created for you along with a printable PDF.

How to Create an Easel Card Video Tutorial

After watching the video do you want to make one too?

Well you’re in luck since I’ve created a PDF for you with step by step instructions to create this card along with a complete supply list too.

Spooky Treats

It’s almost fall and that means Halloween is right around the corner – If you love Halloween you’ll want to check out this fun card using the Spooky Treats & Winter Woods stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog.

This card uses simple sponging and masking to create a wonderfully spooky fall night!

How is it done? First you’ll create a mask using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and a sticky note. Place the sticky note where you’d like it on your Whisper White card stock. Then sponge starting with the lightest color Crushed Curry in a circular motion to begin building the layers of color. Add some Pumpkin Pie and then finish with Blackberry Bliss. Remove the mask and you’re ready to finish stamping.

Yep, it’s that easy. Each time you’ll get a little different look based on your sponging which makes it a lot of fun.

And if you love this punch you’ll love this tip that Sara shared with us yesterday.

The Spooky Bat Punch (148014) cuts out the bats from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (147531) bat images! How cool is that?

You’re going to LOVE all the fantastic products in the Holiday Catalog! Why not come to my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and check them out? But hurry and RSVP by the end of the day September 12th so I’ll have enough goodies for everyone!

Can’t come? or don’t live local and want a catalog? If you don’t have a demonstrator why not email me at StampwithJini@gmail.com your name, address and phone number and I’ll be happy to mail one to you!

Love this card? Then you’ll want to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more wonderful cards from a swap I recently hosted.

Darling Label Punch Box Thank You

We’ve got a fantastic Tin available so I couldn’t resist getting one of these for myself.

Gorgeous right? and this tin contains ink, a clear block, stamps and even a punch! Got to love punches. At least I do, especially the ease of creating multiples or on the go! Keep the tin or fill it and give it as a gift. The choice is yours.

Today’s card was inspired by one that Stampin’ Up! did in training for us in our quarterly magazine.

I love the soft feel of this card that I’ll be sending out for this month’s Thank You to those that order.

Want to make some too? Here is a FREE Tutorial for the card.

Merry Christmas to All Tutorial & More

Well as you can see I didn’t get to post this yesterday afternoon like I had hoped, but the good news is I can share it with you today and even more!

Last month my team enjoyed a shoe box swap and so today I thought I’d share some of them with you. This first card uses the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (147702). This set is filled with wonderful sentiments and has a coordinating Thinlits set, Merry Christmas (147912).

I love the warm country feel of the Festive Farmhouse Suite that was used to highlight this set. How about you? And good news I thought you might enjoy making this card too so I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial that includes the complete supply list for you!

Merry Christmas to All Card PDF

And here is another fun card using the Fun Santa’s Workshop Suite of products.

I feel in LOVE with the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper (147809) with its flocking! It’s so much fun and you can use the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies (147809) to cut out the images! How fun is that?

And how about another tutorial with a full supply list for you? I couldn’t resist. lol

Signs of Santa Card PDF

And this final card uses the Nature Sings stamp set (143653/144406) and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (141851) from the Annual Catalog.

Beautiful.

Today’s cards are all part of a shoe box swap that we did at the Blue Mountain Stampers Weekend Getaway in August. This getaway is a time for my team to gather and spend the weekend together. We spend the time laughing, sharing and of course stamping with the new products from the Holiday Catalog PreOrder.
