My sweet little girl Kendra will be turning ONE on December 11th and I will be usng the Simple Birthday Thanks set for her Invitations. While at the Creative Stitches Alive Fair this past weekend I purchased a box of Maya Road Chipboard that had 54 pieces of make-your-own cupcakes!!! SO CUTE! I decided to make her a cute little book that I can put pictures of her big day in. I got to use my favourite new toy the Zutter Bind-it-All as well. I tried a really cool technique we learned from Linda Hamilton at Convention. It’s hard to see in the photo but the whipped cream top of the cupcake is done with white craft reinker and a classic ink reinker swirled technique. I promise to show the step-by-step technique soon, but until then, here is the photo.
I got this great shaker card idea from the very talented Heather Summers .
Step 1: Punch the largest punch in the coaster (i used 1 3/4 circle)
Step 2: Lay your 4×4 piece of DSP over the coaster and then use the same punch to make a hole in the DSP
Step3: Mount a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 pice of white cardstock on the back of the coaster behind the opening
Step 4: Make your rudolph circle making sure to leave the crystal effects and red glitter dry
Step 5: Attach the rudolph circles in the center of the white piece of CS
Step 6: Place a SMALL amount of micro beads and a dash of glitter to the "well" around Ruddie
Step 7: Glue a 2 1/2 x 2 1/5 piece of acetate over Ruddie and the beads….ensure you seal around the edges
Step 8: Cover the coaster with your DSP and smooth edges
Step 9: Stamp your message, punch scalloped edge, add ribbon to the coaster THEN mount coaster to your card.
Seems like a lot of work but they really aren’t as scary as they look…..
These were the cute little Halloween gift ideas my Stamp Club Members made at tonight’s meeting. The cute little spiders were found on Splitcoast by Julie Case. The sweet little Top Note treat box tutorial can be found on Angie Tieman’s Blog. The treat bag topper uses my new favourite Sizzix die….the TOP NOTE!.
Have fun and Happy Halloween !!!
