Letterpress plates

December 4, 2010

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the letterpress plates that Stampin Up has for the big shot!

Here are two pictures of  things I have done with them.  First I found a nice 8X8 shadow box frame at a craft store and made the Halloween design.  Then once that one was done the light bulb went on and I realized I could just swap out paper in the frame for all the different holidays.  I know….DUH!  But it really wasn’t the original plan.  So then I made the next one for Christmas and LOVE it even more than the Halloween one.  I can’t wait to play with the design for Valentines day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some recent projects

December 4, 2010

Here is a card I made for a swap with my fellow “Dazzling Diamonds”, our stampin up demonstrator group.  We are having a Christmas party this afternoon and this is my swap.  When I get back I will show you some of the things I receive in the swap.  These ladies make such cute cards!

 

This card uses the  treat cup, Sweet Snowglobe Stamp, basic gray ink, very vanilla and old olive card stock, old olive 5/8 in grosgrain ribbon, Jolly Holiday DSP, and lots of dazzling diamonds glitter!
