Look!  I made a card from the Howl-O-Ween Bundle!  It looks like the Stampin’ Up! design on the gift bag.  Isn’t SHE adorable!  This card was put together using the delightful Washi Tape that accompanies the Happy Haunting DSP (designer series paper) page 47 in Holiday catty!  Washi tape in case some of you aren’t familiar, is a decorative that tape that is non permanent SO you can remove it and fidadle with it!  It is pretty cool stuff to use for adding a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to your projects.  🙂 I wanted to show you how you can make a great, colorful card, too.  Or take off the top piece and attach to your halloween gift bag stuffed with delectable treats!

These two above were made using the Embellished Ornaments Bundle above.  What a gorgeous set this is as it comes with intricate and beautiful framelits and makes stunning ornaments you could use to decorate a small twig tree to set on a buffet, make lovely holiday tags and simply make your holiday cards with this beautiful assortment of ornament dies and stamps.  I love using envelope liners to line my envelopes and here I used our smashing red and gold foil designer series paper to match my red foil ornament and/or the gold ornament top/bow.  One thing I did do was using our Owl punch guy and punched out the tiniest little “eyes” out of the red foil to match with the gorgeous red foil ornament.  My fun little tip for you!

REMEMBER, these I’ve showcased are just a FEW of the many beautiful holiday BUNDLES in this wonderful Holiday 2015 catalog!  SO, check it out!

Hello and O’ Happy Day!

DKD wm.IMG_774602

I would like to extend a very warm “hello” to all of you who come to visit today. Each and every day I welcome you here and just know I’m waving to you from afar wherever you may be!  Get the “visual” of a very fast waving hand saying, Hello, come on in and let’s “visit” together!  Hand waving!! I’m so excited today!

Today is a special day for me and an exciting one, too. It marks the debut of my new blog, I love the format for it and I hope you do, too.  My goal is to make it easy for you to navigate through and help with what you may need or if you are just plain curious and want to be in the “know” of the latest and greatest Stampin’ Up! news! This is your place.

Maybe it’s those awesome, cute little stamps sets you might be “eyeing” or to check the clearance rack and “weekly Deals” (don’t cha just love deals when shopping?) or to check out the cool Paper Pumpkin kits that come as a surprise each month to your door!  OR to check out the latest and greatest 2015 Holiday Catalog!    Woo hoo! Check out the catalog link!  Navigating around should be easier with my new blog platform, I just love it and so happy to share with all of you folks!

Today’s card shares a similarity of my blog headline ~ I used Crumb Cake as the base 5-1/2″ X 4-1/4″ (standard A2 card), and Early Expresso card stock.  I am a big fan of anything vintage so my thoughts were to make this a bit “vintage-y.”  I used the Hardwood stamp set (it’s a large stamp) to create that fence look using Early Expresso ink. Added this to the base, then Early Expresso card stock layer and lastly the crumb cake layer.  I embossed it with the adorable Hearts embossing folder (this is so useful for many occasions like today, Valentine’s, a romantic card, a sweet one to use to your children, a best friend).  I put that piece into the folder, ran it through the Big Shot boy and voila!  I used the 1-1/4″ Burlap ribbon, a beautiful ribbon, cut it in half with my awesome craft scissors (these will make your heart go pitter patter, they cut SO smooth and easy) and then I pulled a couple of strings to “ravel” it.  Did you see that?   I used the string part I unraveled to tie a sweet little bow and placed it on my punched out HEART in turquoise card stock to give it a “special” touch and keep that “vintage-y” feel!

I wanted to say “hello” to all of you using the awesome Greetings Thinlits (#138275) to give my card a fun stand out and shout “Hello”!  These THINLITS greetings just pack a real special look to cards and memory keeping pages.  Check them out.    I placed a thin strip of early expresso card stock on top of the burlap ribbon to give my “hello” a pop of interest. My heart was placed with those great little dimensionals we have ~  to give some dimension to that cute little heart. DKD wm.IMG_774401
I don’t think we can ever have TOO many “hello” cards to send out to let someone special know we are thinking of them today and just to say “hello!” and see how they are.   This sweet little thinlit sure makes it easy to showcase your sentimental thought, don’t you think?     You could make up several all at one time in different colors and then keep on hand.  It’s so nice in person, quite lovely. I placed mine a wee bit staggered to keep with the rustic, informal look.  I love turquoise and it’s on my signature header above, so I had to use it.  Had to.

I am so excited if you were one of the ones to stop by today and see my new blog! I’m quite excited for it and I have a few special people to thank.  It’s been a long time comin’ to say the least!     Come back again soon and see exactly who they may be!  But, always know that I thank each and every one of you for your visits and hope I can inspire you be creative, in whatever you choose, we ALL are in one way or the other.  So, if you’re a seasoned stamper, paper crafter, memory keeper or a “never picked up a stamp in my life” person, well….I’m here to inspire, chat, and encourage you to give it a try. It’s so easy and it is SO MUCH FUN!  Sure hope to see you soon…I have lots planned to share with you!

Have a great Friday and thanks again for visiting!!
