My new favorite Big Shot die

Hi stamping friends!

I have found a new Big Shot die that I am in love with...it's the scallop envelope die. It makes THE cutest little envelopes. Perfect for giving little treats.

I was hooked when I saw this sample posted by Filomena Green  and then found a St Patty's Day treat made by Melissa Davies.

I borrowed the die from my upline and used it to make this little Valentine's treat for my coworkers--they loved it. Don't you think it's just too cute?

Valentine's Day treat

just a few treats!

I used to the die again to make small treats to give to a group of my girlfriends when we treated ourselves to afternoon tea at Mary Anne's Theme Teas in Taneytown, MD. They were easy to make and just the right little something-something to share!

You can really see the embossing done with the Stripe embossing folder in this photo

I love stamping and sharing my creations with the wonderful people in my life!

    Final birthday card for January

    Hi stamping friends!
    I hold a monthly papercrafts club at the local elementary school. The kids have a blast making cards and other projects using cardstock and ink. At the December meeting we made telescoping snowmen cards. I assembled the cards and they put on the hat, face, buttons, and stamped the sentiment and snowflake. They always do a fabulous job.
    I saw this card on another demonstrators site (Becky Roberts); she had copied it from another demonstrator on the Stampin Up demonstrator website. Once I saw it I couldn't wait to make these frosty gentlemen!

    I made a few of these card to share with my co-workers---they appreciated getting these unique cards along with wishes for a Merry Christmas!

    I used the same design for the remaining January birthday card I needed. I couldn't wait to use my label framelit dies.... and had a fabulous idea to combine the telescoping card with the label die cuts. I think the result is a winner!

    I am so enthralled with this design that I have to use it again soon---my February stamp club will be making an Easter card with it! Stay tuned for a sneak peek soon....

    Stamping is fun!
