Spirograph wannabee...



This was very similar to a card i made last year. It looks good with Stampin'Up!'s stretchy silver cord. I love what you can do with the scallop circle. I had it in my mind to do it but getting it right took some doing. It is all about math and i guess that isn't my strong point so Patrick helped me and we realized you had to wrap the scallop after counting five bumps continually. I like the look and it reminds me of a spirograph!

ripped off, ahem i mean inspired {which is it?}from Andrea Walford's card which has a lot more sparkle here. She is brilliant!The letters are made with the Big Shot with Fun Foam! Love that snowflake punch!

My favorite Christmas Design


I used the Stampin'Up! set Friends 24/7 which I wanted for so long. I added a half back pearl from the pretties kit to the image and some of the flocked red paper from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Paper. It is velvety and raised! I love it! Also I added some of the Olive and White taffeta ribbon from the Mistletoe Ribbon Originals, both out of the Holiday Mini Catalogue. I added a layer of green cardstock behind the Whisper White at the last minute to tie the colour in to the rest of the card. As soon as I got my dsp I realized the pattern was similar to the image in the 24/7 stamp set! It took me a month to get around to making this card but I was rolling it around in my mind for weeks. I hope you like it.

Christmas Tags and Candy Cane holders


Here's a photo of a couple of the make and take projects I did at the Stampin'Up! Convention in Salt Lake City. The Big Shot was used with the Two Tags Bigz Die.

Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Two Tags Bigz die helps you create custom tags from any card stock or Designer Series paper. The small tag has a pierced edge; the large tag is scored so you can fold and tuck it into the end. It’s perfect for hiding images or messages, and it will make beautiful gift tags and small Valentine cards. This design is part of Shelli’s Signature Collection.
