Let's roll

Ok, it has been a month since I last posted. I got my hands on a new die set from MFT Dienamics - gift card grooves (I think that's the name) and made a gift card holder using one of the dies. There are 4 dies in the set and you can make your gift card holder 4 different ways.
I used Lawn Fawn's "let's roll" stamp set since I had extra pieces lying on my craft table. In fact, everything I used was scraps. Lol! I cut the holder at 3" x 12" and scored at 3 1/4" and 7 1/2". That's it. Very easy to make!
My husband has a new line in his store called Pretty Pink Posh and her sequins are the best I've seen so far. I used the clear 4mm on the stamped flowers in the background. If you click on the photo you can see it better. I also used clear wink of stella on the sushi.
Here's what one of the dies looks like.
I really haven't had much time lately to work on any projects. It's the busiest time of the year at work. I'm kind of dreading next week Friday because we have to go to our stores and take down Thanksgiving and put up New Years.
Well, thanks for checking in and staying with me here on the blog. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day!!!

Christmas sample cards

Playing catch up here. I have other cards that I haven't posted yet but I will soon. First up is a water globe shaker card. I used Taylored Expressions stamp and die to make the water globe. The stamp is called winter penguin from Lawn Fawn. The sequins is Doodlebug Designs.
This 2nd card is a side step card from Sizzix. I love how easy it is to use this die to cut the card. I tried cutting it out by hand before and could never get the cut parts even. The stamp is from Dandelion Designs called teeny weeny Christmas. And the words are from the new tag set from Sizzix.
This last project is a new die from Sizzix called notepad holder die by Brenda Walton. It is made for post-it notes and fits perfectly in it.
I used the winter penguin stamp from Lawn Fawn again. I actually have a bunch that I stamped because these are all the mistake ones. Lol! Do you have those too? I waste so much copic paper when I make mistakes.
Here's a side view so you can see the post-it note pad. The little snowflake stamp is so cute and comes with the penguin stamp.
Well, today was pretty much one of those stay at home days for me since its been raining from tropical storm Ana. At least it cooled down because it's been so hot and muggy!!!
Thanks for checking back here. I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog anymore. I've been posting more on Facebook and Instagram.
Have a great weekend!!!

Trick or treat favor bag

I colored this cute Lawn Fawn kitty couple weeks ago and had planned to make a card with it but ended up using it on this treat bag instead. Love this new treat bag die from Lawn Fawn. It is so easy to put together and make a bunch of them to pass out. Thinking about using it to take to my doctor's office for the office girls.
All the dies used on this treat bag are from Lawn Fawn.
Omg, today feels more like 95 than 90 degrees. Earlier this morning while I was working at Don Quijote's, I was actually freezing and had to wear a hoodie and my fingers were numb. I couldn't wait to get out of the store! Now I'm so hot that I want to go back to cool off again. Lol!
Have a great week!!!

Season's Tweetings

Is it just me feeling extra hot these days or is everyone else feeling it too? Plus the addition of hot flashes along with the heat. Ugh! 
I finally got my hands on this banner die from Lawn Fawn and been busy cutting extra banners. I decided to make a simple card, stamping and coloring the images. This birdie stamp set is so cute!
I normally use Imagine Craft's Versafine or Memento inks but I decided to use Ranger's Archival ink to stamp the brown tree branch. It's a really good ink to stamp and the images come out crystal clear.

The card base I used for this card is from Mama Elephant. My husband will be carrying these dies at his store soon. It should be here any day now.
Hope you're having a great week. I've been really enjoying my new part time job. I didn't think I would like it as much as I do but I don't have any stress while I am working. Plus I get to see people that I haven't seen in a long time.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Sweet Wishes

Yesterday I stamped and colored a bunch of Lawn Fawn images to make a tag but didn't finish it. Today I looked at it and changed my mind and went with a side step card. Its a Lori Whitlock die for Sizzix. Great die to use up your scraps.
Lately I've been busy putting up Halloween in my stores. I can't believe that the holidays are almost here in a couple months. The year has gone by so fast!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the Labor Day weekend holiday!!!

Sizzix ornament triplits and catching up

Hi!!! I've been meaning to post this card that I made several weeks ago but then something happened and I didn't get a chance to do it. Here's the card that I made using the new Sizzix ornament triplits. There are 9 dies in the package and you can make different sized ornaments. The card die I used is the majestic flip it die by Stephanie Barnard.
I even cut the part where you attach the hook to the ornament in gold metallic paper.
Well the other week, I ended up in the Kuakini ER again. I had taken new medication that didn't agree with me. I am such a weakling when it comes to medication. My husband and daughter took me to the ER because I could barely walk. And while I was there, the doctors were worried that I had a heart attack since the symptoms resembled a heart attack. They ran so many tests on me and kept me over night for more tests. Even a CAT scan on my brain. Everything came back negative so that was a big relief. I had to sleep with the Holter monitor again. The whole time I was in the hospital, I kept thinking that I wish I had my big shot machine with me. Lol!
Now that I'm back to normal, I made a Halloween card over the weekend. I saw this cute stamp set by Lawn Fawn at the store and the new Doodlebug papers so I knew what I wanted to make. I used vellum paper by Worldwin and embossed cute little stars over it. I used the clear Wink of Stella marker over the bunny and carrot even though you can't even see it in the photo. I'm so glad that I rep that line. They have a lot of new pens from Japan that just released before summer.
Thanks for sticking with me through this long blog post. Have a great week!!!

ECD accordion oval Christmas card

I've been working extra hours lately and I really wanted to make something with one of my Elizabeth Craft Designs dies so I finally sat down last week to play. Okay so, I must be uncoordinated because I had the hardest time figuring out how to put this accordion die together. No joke! I watched the youtube videos over and over to make sure I got it correct. Once I got it figured out, it was easy peasy. 
I used the new Sizzix triplits Christmas trees die set for all the trees. It's such a great deal because you get a total of 14 dies and you can make all these different Christmas trees.
Here's another tree from the same set. But I made this one into a card. The stamped sentiment is an older Hero Arts stamp. I'll probably make some tags for Christmas too.
I finally got to meet Colleen Kwan (another crafty blogger) who was visiting from the mainland. I wasn't planning on seeing anyone last weekend at the store. I just happened to walk in to drop something off and she was there shopping with her friend. So glad that we got to meet each other. She was so generous to bring us a bag of goodies. Thanks so much Colleen!!!
Hope you're all having a great weekend! It is so hot and I wish it would rain. Thanks for stopping by today!!!
