Shelli's Birthday Card

 Shelli Gardner the cofounder of Stampin' Up turned 50 this month and we demonstarters were ask to send in cards for her.  So this is the card I sent her.  I know yes Spice Cake DSP!  I love this paper!!! Anyway this is a shadow box card.  I received a swap at convention using this kind of card with a snowman on it.
The Simply Score makes this a super easy and fun card to make.  Thanks for stoping by!  See you soon!

Spice Cake Shutter Card

 I had so much fun making this card for the last Ustamp Swap around the World. It was so easy to make and you know why?  Because Stampin' Up! finally has a scoring tool called Simply Score.  I have waited a long time for a scoring tool and I waited patiently for Stampin' Up! to come out with one and I am so glad I did.  I love that it has markers that you can use to mark where you want to score and a holder for your scoring tool.  Thank you Shelli it was worth the wait!
I took a flat shot of the card so you could see what it looks like before you fold it all up.  I think it's pretty just like this.  I love our Spice Cake DSP.  It's just "happy " paper and I can't seem to get enough of it.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back!  I'm going to be giving away some blog candy next week to celebrate my 100,000 hits that I've had.  So check back.

Stampin' Addicts Big Shot Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Big Shot Blog Hop 2011. If you have been hopping along in order, you just had the treat of seeing Shelleys's Beautiful creations she made using the Beautiful Butterflies Die at stop # 13.  I can't wait to try some of her great ideas!  So here at stop #14 I am going to show you some projects made with the Two Tags Die. So sit back and have some fun as we look at some Halloween Treats.  EEEKkkk!
Here is a group shot of my projects that I made.  In the front is a candy bar holder, to the back a card with a magnetic bookmark, a money holder, and a gift card holder.  The DSP I used is called Frightful Sight and the Stamp set Batty for You.  I've started to use Black Stazon most of the time instead of Basic Black ink becasue it just gives a deeper black color to the image.
So the magnetic bookmark comes off like this for an extra treat. :)  Here is a little tip.  Use dimensional to pop up the top layer of the front of your card, then you can just slip the bookmark in between the layers.   Love our new Black polkadot ribbon!
This is fun little gift card holder. Who wouldn't like to get a treat like this?...I seem to be addicted to fraying ribbon. lol But it is so fun to do and I love the look it gives a project.

Here are the other two treat holders.  The Batty one holds a Mini Hershey Candy Bar and well then as you can see a money holder.  Now this one would also be cute tied around a bottle of water with a drink mix tucked inside.  And here is the BIG news!  If you join Stampin' Up! this month you'll receive a FREE big Shot or $100 worth of FREE Stampin Up! stuff.  Hurry and call your demo today!  What a deal!  Well that's all I've got so I guess it's time to "hop" on over to Tanya's Blog and see the cute things she has made with the Buttons #5 Die.  Thanks for stopping by!
