How to create a Step Card - Wonderland Stamp Set

Hey stampers!  I've got a really pretty card to share with you today.  And a video to go along with it.  

Today's card features the Wonderland Stamp Set from Stampin' Up.  You may have passed this set over because it's got the antlers in the set - and you've told yourself that you love the trees, but just don't know what to do with the antlers.  I've got a little solution for the antlers that I'll share next week! (wink wink!)

For now, tho, let's concentrate on the trees.  Because they are super gorgeous!

I wish you could FEEL the card.  The trees have texture to them - largely in part because of the white gel pen I used to highlight the branches.  

You can see the nitty gritty in my video:

Hope you enjoy today's card...I think it's a stunner!

Here's the template I used to create the card:

Reason for the Season Cafe Bag Makeover!

I love gorgeous packaging for the holidays!  And....I love that I can create some myself.  The Reason for the Season set from Stampin' Up! really makes this a breeze. 

I'll admit - I wasn't going to order this set or punch.  It was almost last on my wish list.  I think next catalog, I'll shop from my wish list in reverse order.  Cuz, I love this set now.  And the punch.  And all that you can do with it!  It's to die for!  

I mean - c'mon - check out this poinsettia....

I think it's beautiful.  The little bag is now perfect for giving a small gift - some lotion....homemade cookies....candies....perfume....

You name it - it'll be a hit in this bag.  Plus our cafe bags are food safe and coated with a protective lining, so no oily mess from those yummy homemade goodies will seep out.

Here's something else that's to die for:

Glad you all stopped by today!  Hope you like my little gift bag!

Reason for the Season

Well....Hello!  It's been a while.  A lot has changed around here.  

I've got a new craft room - half the size of my old one, but brighter, and more efficient.  It there was a show on small craft spaces, I could probably win a medal or something.  It's a mere 6 1/2' x 15 1/2'.  Think galley kitchen.  But.  It's so bright - I just love that, and I can see the comings and goings of the countryside.  Which is.....well, pretty nil.  Except for some combines and tractors. 

Anyway - I've got a great card for you today - and a video!


This card is so quick to create - a great one for mass producing.  Plus it looks so good in real life.  

Hope you enjoyed today's card.  And here's to getting back to regular postings again (crossing fingers and toes!)
