Half Sheet Wonder meets Gently Falling

You've probably heard of one-sheet wonders where you stamp an entire sheet and slice and dice to make a set of cards.  This is a mini version using a half sheet of whisper white cardstock and Gently Falling.  I was able to make four cards, but if I'd felt like thinking harder, I could have made more.  Colors are Chocolate chip, Poppy Parade, More Mustard and Lucky Limeade.  All of the sentiments were supposed to be from Sincere Salutations.  I forgot my self-imposed rule and used Curly Cute on one of them. 

This is a close up of the showing another way to use the new Simply Scored tool.  It's great for adding details like this border and the one below.  Cool, huh!?

Origami Cupcake Card

I saw this great fold on Wendy's website and just had to try it.  It's a very fun fold and not nearly as complicated as it looks.  The new Simply Scored was the perfect tool for this job.

The only change that I made was to use a 12x12 piece of designer series paper instead of 11x11.  I tweaked the measurements a bit to go along with my changes. The designer paper is from the Brights pack and the stamp set is Create a Cupcake.  Doesn't the silver glimmer paper work perfectly as a cupcake paper?

Cello treats

Love these long skinny cello treat bags in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog. I made these for my stamp club members.  Did you know that there are way more orange candies in a bag of Reese's Pieces?

Stamp Club projects

These are the projects we made at this month's stamp clubs. 

One of my goals is to have a masculine card to make each month.  This fit the bill perfectly.  The bonus is that it doesn't require extra postage.  Stamp set is Gently Falling for the leaf and the awesome hostess set, Happiest Birthday Wishes, for the text. 

This is the first easel card that I've made.  Yes, I'm a little behind the curve!  Stamp set is Delicate Doilies and the colors are Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade.  Lots of bling on this baby!

When I saw the flower stamp in the catalog, I couldn't figure out why they'd call it "Triple Threat."  As it turns out, it's really "Triple Treat," without the extra "h" that I saw.  It's called Triple Treat because it matches up with three of our punches so you can easily punch out and layer it.  Much fun.  The light blue on this is Pool Party and the darker is Island Indigo.  Designer Series Paper is from the Spice Cake pack in the holiday mini.

Perfectly Penned

This is one of the new sentiment stamp sets that I had to have.  It's versatile and a very different font than my other sets. 
The words are highlighted inside a beautiful frame from the Textured Impressions embossing folder for the Big Shot.  The designer paper is from the Mocha Morning pack.  Many of the sheets, including this one, have a gold shimmer to them.

Easy Events Cupcake

This is another card using Easy Events.  The doily looking piece under the focal point is from one of the new Big Shot dies called Perfect Pennants.  The new polka dot scalloped ribbon is really fun and it comes in all kinds of colors.  Colors are Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Black and Confetti white and the designer paper is from the Eat Cake pack.
