Fabulous Ornaments

The Sisters in Stamping are making ornaments to trim your Christmas tree. I love to make and buy ornaments and I'm on the lookout for creative Christmas ornaments all year long. I've had this idea for a long time just waiting to spring it on you! Are you ready??? Here it is--

Isn't he cute??

Last year for Christmas I received a wood burning tool from my husband-- I love it! I made some Keepsake Ornaments last month for the students that made it to All State Choir this year (see photo below). When I finished them I played around with the leftover wood stars that I had and my new stamps from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I stamped the snowman in Crumb Cake ink and used my wood burning tool to burn the image into the wood star.

Make sure you come back next week, the Sisters will be celebrating Black Friday. Until then-- Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

Thanksgiving Table Favors

Hey there! I took last week off, I'm sure you noticed...but I'm back this week with a super cute favor for the Sisters in Stamping Fabulous Friday Post--

One of my co-workers found this idea in a magazine and brought it to me. She needed 30 of them for her grandson's school party. I ordered the cone shaped bags here , I had saved this pin from Cristy Butzen a couple of years ago on how to make candy corn punch art. Here is a picture of the tag close-up--

I used the SU! white gel pen to write in the sentiment. They were a big hit!

Thank-you for coming by today! Karla c(:

Simple Christmas

It's time to gear up for Annual Christmas card making and I have found that really simple Christmas cards are the way to go. It is my turn to pick the theme on the Sisters in Stamping blog and I picked Easy to Reproduce Christmas Cards. Here is my card--

The tree shows colored through the star punch-- isn't that clever!!

Here is a picture of the front close-up.

Well, that's it for me this week, see you next Friday!

Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

Fall Decor

We are making Fall Decor at the Sisters in Stamping blog, here is what I made--

If you have been following me you have noticed that I'm posting this little frame frequently. I started this project with my Mother Daughter Class last December, every month we make a new seasonal monthly insert for our frame-- this is November's insert. I used the stamp set called Vintage Leaves. The "Give Thanks" stamp comes from Sparkly Seasons (must stop using that stamp set!!)

Here are some of the other months-

Halloween Treats

The back says:
I started to carve my pumpkin with my knife and my scoop....
But my pumpkin got so scared, he took a little poop!

Just Treats, no Tricks! Happy stamping, Karla c(:

Thankful Folding

We are doing some Fancy Folds over at the Sisters in Stamping blog. 
Here is my card--

My fancy fold card for this week's challenge is called a Diagonal Gatefold. I have been wanting to try this fold for quite awhile, I was scooting around Pinterest and I saw this Tutorial and decided to give it a go. Turned out super cute, and it was easy.

Here is a picture of it open. I just love that little bear!! Just between you and me he is the reason I own this stamp set.... it's in the 2015 Holiday Mini Catalog and it's called Thankful Forest Friends.

Thankful for you!! Happy stamping, Karla c(:
