My Card Closet

I have been working on this for a while now, I am excited to share with you my closet of cards.

The closet is a standard sized A2 card box, I used Natural Composition DSP to line the closet and give it a natural wood look, some retired corduroy brads as door knobs and some ribbon to keep it closed. In retrospect, I would have made one door a little larger, to overlap and a temp adhesive or some velcro to keep it closed, but I was making it up as I went along.

 Of course every girl's closet needs a dress and an evening gown and these two beautiful pieces were a pleasure to make, I pleated day dress using some retire DSP and an embossed Brushed Silver Dress with velum pleats, both adorned with Pearl Basic Jewels.

 Next up, a pretty little embossed vellum nighty, kissed with some smooch spritz and a retired edgelits punch

A pretty set of pink undies and bra, embossed and trimmed in black lace (retired punch) . Below is a sexy little number in Very Vanilla, embossed in pink and trimmed with some lacy ribbon which will be available in the new Spring Catty.

A pretty little hat, also adorned with some trimmings from the new spring catty and lastly, no girls closet would be complete without a hot pair of shoes, embossed with clear embossing powder for that patten leather look.

What do you think about my closet? Leave me a comment for some blog candy, a free tutorial for the closet and all of its contents. Be sure to leave a comment by New Years Eve for the blog candy!

Candlelight Christmas Cards

Happy Christmas Eve! Just a few cards I was inspired to crank out this morning using up my Candlelight Christmas DSP, I still have a ton of it left and haven't even cracked into the second half of it yet.  These are all pretty simple, nothing spectacular, but sometimes simple can be pretty, right? I don't usually think of browns when I think Christmas cards, but this early expresso sure does look pretty.

I used Greetings of the Season stamps and Bells & Boughs for stamps and all the Valentines cards using the Hearts a Flutter Framelit Dies inspired me to do a Christmas card using the flag-looking die.

There is also a snowflake punch and Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, The Ivy Embossing Folder was a Sizzix, but not a Stampin Up!

Santa Baby... A little something naughty for Christmas Eve

This template has been around for a long time and I couldn't resist a little Christmas Fun, I actually saw a cute little set in JC Penney's the other day that inspired me to make the card versions of Christmas Bra and Panties.

So, A little Candlelight Christmas DSP and Santa Baby will be a happy Man,  I used a Stamp from Greetings of the Season Set and the Artisan Embellishments that you will be able to purchase in the new Spring Catty, next month.

Stampin' Up! demonstrator site and onlin

Merry Christmas Eve! My Sleep schedule is wacked, so, I am blogging in the middle of the night. I guess it really doesn't matter too much, since my kids informed me that they will be awake at 0500 to open Christmas presents tomorrow, lol. Just a quick share of a project from the demo website. I will be back later with a great project I have been working on and I am very excited to share it with you!

You can find out more about this project, and others as well as the ingredients needed to make this cute little box and of course you can purchase them all as well... here

Book to Look Cake

While tooling around in Hobby Lobby, I came across this great metal cake try and knew as soon as I saw it that I would make a book to look cake that I had seen on Split Coast Stampers.

I have been working on this for two days and am very pleased with the way it came out, despite my, now purple fingers... This entire cake is made of paper and each wedge opens to reveal a prize when a Stampin Up party is booked. So, if you would like to look inside this beautiful purple cake, book a party with me! I used a template from Stampin Up! I used only the middle layer, the template calls for 11 pieces, but, I had to use twelve to make it fit perfectly on my cake pan.

 I actually used some retired Pink Card stock and retired DSP for the pie pieces,  Cottage wall has always been one of my favorites. But, the purple DSP on top of the pink paper just didn't look right (I didn't know what look I was going for when I started.) So, Eventually, after covering the top of each of pieces with the beautiful purple DSP from Cottage Wall collection, I used my Rich Razzelberry ink and some rubbing alcohol to Stampin Spritzer and happily sprayed away until all my pink card stock turned this beautiful razzelberry color. The flowers are the white paper daisies, which I also sprayed with both razzelberry and pink pirouette to give them a little dimension and the buttons are from sycamore street collection which will be available soon in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

I am really pleased with the way it turned out, it has been drying all day (Since I got so carried away with the Stampin Spritzer ;) I used my dryer to help it along, but I didn't want to ruin the integrity of the cardstock so that the pieces could be opened later. Even my teenage sons were impressed with my book to look cake, what do you think?
