Cookie Cutter Christmas Baby Card

Cookie Cutter Christmas can be used all year long. Check out this bear baby card.

Cookie Cutter Christmas

I love when I can buy a Christmas stamp set and use some of the stamps all year long.  This special delivery baby card was created using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and punch bundle.

  • The cute paper with the bows…not baby paper.  It’s one of the designs in the Presents & Pinecones Christmas paper. And…it’s part of the Designer Series Paper Promotion.  Buy three packs and get one free.  Ends October 31.
  • The Mint Macaron stamped bear is adorable and so easy to stamp.You can see through the photopolymer stamp set for perfect placement.  Hint:  When you stamp the ears…stand up!  It gives you the perfect angle to stamp them close to his head.

I love it when I can use my holiday stamps all year long! Yep the cute little bear and sentiment are perfect for the new arrival.

 

  • Banners are a snap when you use the Triple Banner Punch.
  • Add a little Rhinestone to the bow and you’re ready to say welcome to the new baby.
  • By the way did I tell you I’m finally going to be a Nana…in February!

Paisleys & Posies – Copper Leaf Card

I’m giving away a little blog candy to some lucky winner this week.  Click Here to view and leave your comment.

Copper foil is a wow even on the simpliest cards. Details on my blog www.stampandembellish.com

Today I’m sharing the swap card I designed for my team gathering.  The theme in October was fall and I decided to take a look at the Paisley & Posies Suite in the Holiday catalog.

  • Let’s start with the paper…Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I choose the rich Cajun Craze leaf printed paper in the pack.  This is a gorgeous pack of paper with beautiful colors and patterns and a little copper foil.
  • The sentiment is from the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set.  And the leaf was cut using the coordinating Paisley Framelits DiesSave 10% when you purchase them as a product bundle.

Copper fuoil and the Paisley Framelits Dies make for an owesome embellisment on a simple card

  • The intricate dies can be a challenge to glue in place without getting glue all over your card so I tried something new that worked really well.  I placed Tear & Tape Adhesive in strips on the back of the foil before I cut with the die.  After running through the Big Shot I used the Die Brush and then used the Paper-Piercing Tool to remove the backing from what tape was left on the back of the die cut. Now you have a die cut with sticky on the back that’s easy to adhere to your project.
  • One of the larger pearls in the Pearl Basic Jewels pack is a perfect accent on the bottom of the leaf.

Pink! Pink! Pink!

I’m joining forces with fellow demonstrators to turn the internet pink with creativity this month in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Early detection of breast cancer, like any other cancer, is the key in saving more lives. So I encourage everyone to make sure your mammograms are up to date and you’re doing self checks.

Pink in Honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month

My card today is a birthday card I made for my great niece.  She’s sweet, adorable and loves to make cards when we are together.  She lives in Florida so we don’t get to see each often but when we do, we do ‘carding’ all day!

  • She loves the Butterfly Punches so it’s the first thing I pulled off the shelf.
  • Next I went to our Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper and when I saw the gold flecked paper I decided a pop of Gold Foil would be perfect!
  • The perfect bling for this card is the Metallic Enamel Shapes.  Just a single dot on the butterfly.  You get both silver and gold in each package.
  • The sentiment is from the stamp set Endless Birthday Wishes.  And endless it is…lots of words that can be combined in endless combinations.

She’ going to “LOVE IT”!

Reagan and I crafting

So here we are ‘carding’ the last time she visited.  She wants to use every tool and runs the Big Shot like a pro! Look…we both have pink on…perfect for today’s post!

The Breast Cancer 2-Day walk is coming up soon in Atlanta.  I have a few friends that are walking in the walks this year and wanted to say how awesome I think it is.  I will be praying and sending thoughts of encouragement!

I did the walk in 2000 when it was a 3-Day Walk and it was such an amazing experience.  I was about a year out of treatment with Non-Hodgkins cancer and felt the need to do the walk for so many reasons.  I will never forget it!

Avon Cancer Walk

Here I am with my dear friend and two outrageously dressed volunteers who cheered us on.  I would encourage everyone to do the walk at least once. But if you think you could never walk that far consider being a cheerleader.  They were so very important as they lifted our spirits at every stop and cheered us on to the end.

So remember to have your check ups and remind your loved ones.

Hugs,
Diane

Live Laugh Love In My Favorite In Colors

I fell in love with the Layering Love stamp set as soon as I saw it.  Sentiments that I like to incorporate in my life. Today’s is the Live Laugh Love stamp.  I was struggling to remember how the saying went and thought I would google it.  To my surprise there are lots of versions.

  • Live every moment Laugh every day, Love beyond words
  • Live well, Laugh often, Love much
  • Live with promise, Laugh with pleasure, Love with passion
  • Live your life to the fullest, Laugh at every stupid thing, Love like there’s no tomorrow
  • Live life, Laugh lots, Love forever
  • Live life, Laugh often, Love God
  • Live like there’s no tomorrow, Laugh like you did when you were little, Love like you’ve never been hurt

Which one is your favorite?

  • Give your cards a pop of color with the new Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape.  I like to just tear it off the roll…quick and cute!
  • This year’s new Stampin’ Up! In Colors are trendy and beautiful.  And if you’re like me you’ll want every one of the five colors with all the coordinating products.  Can you guess which two are my favorites?  If you said Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum you are correct…at least for now.
  • The new Heart Famelits are called Sweet and Sassy.  Included are both traditional shaped hearts like in my card today or the cute sassy shaped ones.

 

  • The Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches are well loved punches in my stamp studio.  If you are a beginner stamper or just haven’t ordered both of them yet…what are you waiting for!!
  • A Perfect Touch! A White Perfect Accent added to the layered butterfly is exactly what was needed.

 

Another cute project right from the pages of the new catalog!
