Tune in Tuesday

Since I gave cards for Christmas gifts this year, I felt the need to replenish my stash.
The triple stamp effect is still one of my favorites and then I combined it with one of my favorite stamp sets it ended up being one of my favorite cards.

This one I made using Stampin' Up Best of Snow stamp set.  I used the coordination's paper with a new embossing folder, then sanded the paper to bring out the core.  The embossing folder is called Decorative Dots and will be available free with a 50.00 purchase during the up coming Sale-A-Bration.  The Banner Stamp set and punch are part of the Sale-A-Bration as well.

This last card I incorporated the stamp set Petite Petals and punch set from the new Celebrate the Everyday catalog.


Christmas gifts

Well I went to post pictures of the Christmas presents that I gave this year and realized I forgot to take pictures.  So here is a picture of the leftover pouches.
I make six of them in three different sizes, then I let my sister, niece and nephews girlfriend choose which one they want.
I also gave cards in cute little card holders. Needless to say, I don't have pictures of those either but I do have pictures of some envelopes that I made.

I made the envelopes with my Stampin' Up envelope punch board, then used the punch board to make liners.


Tune in Tuesday Snickerdoodles

This week I am giving homage to the always delicious Snickerdoodle cookie. I love the plain ol' snickerdoodle but have seeing a lot of recipes where they seem to be stepping it up a notch.  The first one I tried was made with pumpkin.  It's a nice chewy cookie and if you love pumpkin, you will love this cookie.
The next recipe I tried was a half gingersnap half snickerdoole. They are delightful, have a nice crunch to them and are the best of both worlds.
Lastly I have the Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodle, need I say more?  I did change this recipe up a touch, it called for caramel squares cut into 1/4's and I used mini Rolos. They are yummy.
Just thought I would toss in one more Doodle just for cuteness.
 If you click on the name of the recipe it will take to  the recipe page.


Herds of Sheep

I've been making herds of sheep for my Etsy shop.  These were for a special order.
 I've been making round sheep.
 Oval sheep.
Sheep with legs.
Sheep with no legs.
Sheep with a little pouch on the back to hold a scissors.
 Sheep that you can wear on your lapel.
 And I have no idea why these two pictures mysteriously turned to the side.  They aren't like that on my camera and I can't change them.


Tune in Tuesday

Here is another super simple project that could be made in mast quantities if you so desired.
It's made with a Hershey nugget, a piece of 1 inch by 3 1/4 inch card stock and colored pencils.
I just drew on the faces with colored pencils, you could use makers, paint or anything you have laying around.  I used pencils 'cause they were 2 feet from where I was sitting. Then take a pair of gloves or 1 single glove if you are one of those people that loses a glove and never tosses out the single because you are sure as soon as you do, the other one will turn up.  You know who you are. Now just go ahead a cut the fingers off that single glove and make five of these cute little guys and girls and if the other glove turns up, well just make five more.

I made a boy and a girl just for fun. You can leave them as is or add a hook to hang on a tree. Then after you have the fingers cut off, don't throw them away.

You now have a pair of fingerless gloves for texting, not while you're driving, of course.

Wow that is a really bad angle, my fingers are not that fat. If you don't have any of gloves laying around that you want to cut up, just head on down to the nearest dollar store, last year they were selling them 2 pair for a dollar.
