Christmas Pressies…

I’ve been asked to make 12 Post-It Notes for small Christmas Gifts.  I wanted to keep them simple & not have too much on the front.  With being in your bag all the time, they tend to get knocked around a lot, so keeping them simple suited the purpose.
I’ve kept with the basic Post-It Notes Holder, as I don’t think you can beat a classic.  It is so easy to make.
Cut a piece of cardstock 6 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
Score at 3 1/2″ & 4″
Embellish as desire

In this case, I printed all the names on the pc.
How easy is that?

Tropical Summer…

I made this card a couple of weeks ago & suddenly realised I hadn’t posted it.

I’ve done a bit of a different fold for this card.  Still using your standard size card, I folded the top half of the card in half again.

I’ve used the “Island Oasis” DSP from the latest Mini-Catalogue & adhered DSP down the RHS, while ashering the opposite side of the DSP down the LHS.  All SU® DSP is double-sided, which means you receive twice as much DSP.

Using Whisper White on Rose Red Cardstock, I adhered it to the top half of the folded back section of the card.

I then stamped the images in Old Olive onto the Whisper White.  Using scraps of Whisper White, I stamped the flower in Rose Red, while the coconut was stamped in Chocolate Chip.  The umbrella was coloured in using my Watercolour Pencils.

I cut both the flower & coconut out & using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered to the card.  I then stamped the greeting in Rose Red.

Tropical Party…

The following cards have been created using products from the new Mini-Catalogue, so sit back, relax & enjoy!

Using the Scallop Square punch, I punched squares in Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red. I applied Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back so that they would sit up away from the DSP – Island Oasis.  This way they are not lost in the background.

I stamped Whisper White cardstock with the leaf, using Old Olive.  I punched these out using the 1 1/4″ square punch and adhered to the Scallop Square punch.

For the flower, I stamped the image in Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise & cut out using SU® Paper Snips.  I then adhered to them to the corner of the squares.

Crikey!  My 2nd posting in one day – wonders will never cease.  I found this great sketch at Techno Stamper and just had to have a go, although there wasn’t much time to get it done.
 This card also showcases a stamp set from the new Mini Catalgue which begins Wednesday, 1st December.  Again, there are heaps of great new stamp sets and accessories and again, I want them ALL!
