Fabulous Frankie Friday

Thank-you for coming back this week, the Sisters in Stamping ( have some Halloween Candy Treats to show you! Here is mine--

His name is Frankie! I told my husband he was the perfect man-- his mouth is sewn shut! I traded this cute candy treat at my Heartisan Downline Meeting a couple of weeks ago. I had a 6x6 page that I traded with him, his punch key. Here is a picture of it--

I used the Pounce Technique on the Scary & Sweet, I inked the stamp in black and stamped it 6-7 times in the same spot to make it look really spooky. I used the Texture jumbo wheel on the top in Always Artichoke ink. The card stock is stapled on top of the small cello bag filled with candy (the staple is under Frankie's head) and then I used dimensionals to pop the punch art up so that it covered the staple.

   Next week we are going to feature some Christmas-y stuff, hope you can stop back by and check us out!

Happy Stamping!

Thankful for...! This week at the Sisters in Stamping ( we are making Thanksgiving cards you let you know how thankful we are for you! Here is my card for this week--

I used a fun technique this week called "Rock & Roll." Whenever I see leaves changing in the Fall I think of this technique. You ink the stamp up with one color and then "roll" the edges in a complimentary color. Here are the ink colors so you can recreate this card--The smaller Ash tree leaf was inked in Old Olive and then rolled in Soft Suede, the Oak tree leaf was inked in More Mustard and rolled in Cajun Craze. Of course all paper and ink supplies used are Stampin' Up!

Thank-you for coming back week after week to see what I'm up to!

Happy Stamping-- Karla c(:

Pressing Cookies for Friday

I did some baking for Fabulous Friday last night, and I was quite im"press"ed (-- haha, get it?) with the brand new cookie stamps! Here are my cookies cooling-- 

I used the Sugared Shortbread recipe that came with the Cookie Press, you can't see by the picture but you roll the balls of dough in sugar before you press them so they have a sparkle to them. I pulled the cookies out of the oven about 1/2 way through the baking and trimmed the edges off with a round biscuit cutter so they would have that traditional shortbread look to them. Best of all they taste fantastic, I had one this morning with my coffee! Here is a picture of the final project--

To package the cookies I used a flat cellophane bag and a felt snowflake from the Winter Wishes Stitched Felt collection (Holiday Mini Catalog, pg.30). The stitching on the snow flake is in Marina Mist thread, so the paper and ribbon coordinate beautifully. One last little detail, the bitty button for the center, quick and easy!
Includes solid wood handle with three interchangeable stamp images, two recipes, and tips for use

It was fun playing with the Cookie Stamp, I can see a family tradition forming right in front of me!

If you'd like a Cookie Press of your own stop by my Stampin' Up! Store

Thanks for stopping by this week, Karla c(:
