Merry & Bright Penguin

I had it in my mind to create a penguin card using the owl builder punch.  So when  I went down to my scrap room yesterday to clean, instead I created (again)! The hat is from Lawn Fawn's Hats Off To You dies.  The hat is a little big, so I will have to research how people are making hats on Pinterest cards. The sentiment is from a My Paper Pumpkin from last year.  The Designer Series Paper is Candy Cane Lane and is in the current Holiday Mini. Today I will get around to cleaning my scrap room!  Have a great weekend and find yourself a little stampin' time!

Little Owl

How long has the owl punch been part of Stampin' Up?  However long it has been, I finally broke down and purchased it!  I am blaming it on the ladies who come here for Cricut each month.  I saw a cute little penguin and then Sheryl showed me a photo of all the different little critters you can make with the punch.  Today I am posting the first owl card I made with the punch.  In the future you will be seeing penguins and who knows what other little critters! 

I just thought this was cute:  Sydney is teaching Dexter how to open presents for Christmas.  She is wrapping his old toys for him to practice! As you can see, he has unwrapping down pat!  Have a great day!

Calypso Coral Birthday

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I sure did.  Sydney came here on Wednesday so she could help me get ready for Thanksgiving dinner.  And she was a big help.  We also enjoyed some TV/bed time with Nipper.  When Sydney is here, little Nipper sticks close to her.  On Thursday morning, Matt came over with Vinny (his girlfriend's son).  Between Sydney, Matt and Vinny my morning couldn't have been better! There were 16 of us for dinner and it was wonderful.  I truly am blessed with the very best family and friends. 

Today's card was made when I took a break from die cutting snowflakes~~lots of snowflakes for my Christmas cards.  I used retired Designer Series Paper with Calypso Coral cardstock, ink and twine and a white card base.  It was quick to create and it is a birthday card without balloons!  Have a great day!

My Favors

Today I am posting the favors I made for Thanksgiving at our house.  I wrapped each Hershey Treasure in Lawn Fawn pattern paper, made a little tray for the candies and slipped them into SU's 2" x 8" cellophane bags.  The sentiment is from the Basket of Wishes stamp set.  After stamping the tags I needed, I used the Labels and Tags framelits to cut them out.  I then sponged the edges and tied them on with twine, adding off white tulle and decorative embellishments.  Once again, I trimmed down the length of the cello bags.  I made these for a Halloween post last month and I thought those were cute.  These, I think, are very pretty.

There will be three children here, so I made them little boxes using Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Treat Box die and Stampin' UP's retired bow punch.  Have a great day!

Owl Punch Turkey

Isn't this Thanksgiving favor cute?  My friend, Kathy Z, made these.  She used Stampin' Up's retired Fry Box die and the Owl Punch.  She layered different sizes of scallop circles on to the front of the fry box.  The turkey's body is the owl body from the punch, minus the ears and adhered using dimensionals.  She added the google eyes, a sentiment, a tiny little beak and heart.  Inside the fry box is a Reese's Peanut Butter cup wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with pretty ribbon.   If I hadn't already started on my Thanksgiving favors,  I would have copied this one!  Have a great day!

Navy Thinking of You

This was a quick card I made while I was cleaning my scrap island.  I used a Night of Navy card base and a piece of patterned paper that I have had in my stash for quite some time.  The frame and the sentiment cardstock were cut using My Favorite Things Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle dies.  The sentiment is from SU's Wetlands stamp set and the flowers are from SU's Love & Affection set.  I used dimensionals to adhere the border frame to add a little dimension to the card. I  never did clean my scrap island~~later today I will get right to it!  Have a great weekend and find yourself a little stampin' time.
