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!











Sweet Centers Halloween card

September 3, 2009

This little card is made from the new Sweet Centers set and the new Sweet Treats Cups.  This was made with Kiwi Kiss and Tangarine Tango cardstock.  Also used the scalloped edge punch and the 1 3/4 in circle punch. In this example I used Whisper White Craft Ink and clear embossing powder but wasn’t super thrilled with how that looked.  It’s cute but the next ones I did were pumpking pie and old olive inks on whisper white cardstock and that looks GREAT!  Either way they are adorable and I am going to be making all sorts of little cards and treats with this entire set!  The filling in the Sweet Treat Cup is some halloween confetti that has been in my “scrap drawer” for a couple years.  In that same drawer I found some twine and bingo its done!  What a cute way to use some of it up!  Did I mention how much I LOVE this set??   😉
