Pick your poison

Cute little hand sanitizer holders, I used the 3 pack of hand sanitizers that you can buy for a dollar at dollorama or most great Canadian dollar stores, I don't have a bath and beauty store or whatever it is called that the person in the tutorial used in my city, on the positive, just use the largest oval punch, you don't have to do the fanagleing like the tutorial-no disrespect intended. I think I might wrap some matching Halloween DSP around the hand sanitizer bottle.
Colours used are old olive, basic black, pumpkin pie, the DSP is SU ????it's from last year and the year before
Tutorial can be found here

Spooky witch

Just a quick, simple Halloween card that I made. nothing to write home about.
it's a joy fold card, which you can find the tutorial for here
The card bases are basic black and pumpkin pie, the orange polka dotted DSP is from Micheals, the orange and black DSP is from SU's last year Halloween paper. I matted with old olive. I found this stamp set "all hallows eve" which I am in love with, the witch comes from that set. Topped it off with a paper clip and some black ribbon.

Birthday Princess

Here's a type of card I normally don't do, girly, girl. I'm quite happy with it though. Sometimes it's nice to step outside the box. Thought I would try out the paper piecing, I love it. I think it depends on the image you are piecing with.

Th's stamp is from Hampton arts and it's called Birthday Princess. Used silver and red stickles on the image. The DSP is "sending love??" from SU, image is matted on real red, card base is pretty in pink.

Punched out a few flowers, threw some bling in the middle and you have a princess card.

Card box

I don't normally post 2 in a day but I lost the instructions for this card holder and just came across them so I am going to post so I can give you the link . This is a perfect little gift to give someone filled with cards. That is where this one is going. It is filled with Halloween cards.

The box was made with old olive card stock, the DSP is last year's Cast a spell by SU. I used the scallop trim border with basic black card stock. The bat is from SU's Batty for you. The tutorial can be found here

Halloween Easel Card

Yes, more Halloween. I am sure I will get sick of is soon and will stop making Halloween for a bit. This is called an Easel card, I finally made one and am love with them.

All supplies used are SU unless noted.

The base of the card is old olive card stock, followed by a mat of elegant eggplant and then the DSP is from last year called Cast a spell.

I stamped the BOO from the Best Fiends stamp set in basic black on pumpkin pie, punched out with circle punch, then layered over Cast a spell, basic black, elegant eggplant. My sister was kind enough to give me some orange ribbon.

Scallop flowers

These flowers seem to be pretty popular lately so I thought that I would try them out and I love em.
All supplies SU unless noted.
Card base is Early espresso, with a whisper white base. I stamped the leaves from a retired set called "Best blossoms" in early espresso. The DSP of course can't remember, but the card stock is Baja breeze. Used the scallop trim punch to make a border and then some no namey white ribbon.
Now to make the flowers, punch out 5 scallop pieces of any DSP that you like, now line them up in a stack and using a cropadile punch a hole in the middle of them, this will be for the brad. Once you have your hole punched, crumple up all of them individually, layer them again and put a brad through the middle to keep them all together, and there is your flower.

Easter Bunny

What a sweetie eh? Another copy cat, I am sure you have figured it out that I don't have any original ideas. There really isn't a tutorial for this it is kind of self explanatory. The box is a 2-5-7-10 box (tutorial here ) which I made and cut down, punched the edges with the new SU punch,
and folded over. I made my small circles using the 2 different hole punches on the crop a dile
I am going to fill with grass and a few Easter treats.

Blue Baroque

I have to say, I looove this card, I have done it in red and pink also and I am sure it will be done in many other colours.

All supplies used are Stampin Up! unless noted.

I borrowed the butterfly image and embossilit (Beautiful wings embosilit)from my sister so I can't remember the names of the butterflies, if you look in the comments maybe she will be kind enough to post.

My card base is tempting turquoise, brilliant blue mat, then whisper white.
I stamped the swirly gig from Baroque Motifs in tempting turquoise and the flowers from Baroque Motifs in brilliant blue. The stamped butterfly was inked in tempting turquoise and then the edges were rolled in brilliant blue ink (rock n roll method). The other butterfly is a die cut using a SU embossilit. I then jazzed things up with some bling from the dollar store.

Mail box

I have had a couple of the tin mail boxes laying around and thought I would attempt to make one pretty. It was a but frustrating, with some trial and error it was actually quite easy. I think I am going to give this to my son's teacher. They will be making valentine boxes for there exchange and so I thought I would make one for the teacher.

I just measured the box and cut the proper width x 12". I semi figured out where the flag was and took a 1/2" circle punch a punched a hole, then slid the DSP over the flag.

I used Sending Love DSP from SU, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, and Mod Podge.

Valentine Tic Tac Toe

I bought some of these metal tins from the SU! clearance rack, didn't know what to do with them so I looked on Splitcoaststampers. It's not an idea that I came up with, but thought that it rocked, making a tic tac toe board that can travel with you, someone also made up a matching game to, see end of post for these examples.
All supplies Stampin Up! unless noted.
The tic tac toe DSP is real red from a level 1 pack from a couple years ago, I used my Xyron to make it all sticky and adherred, then drew a grid.
The DSP used on the outside is from We R Memory Keepers and it's called "Darling", again adhered it to the tin with the Xyron, then sanded down the edges, put on a coat of Modge Podge
I used my Crop a dile to punch holes in the tin, and threaded through some real red grosgrain ribbon.
My game pieces are real red & regal rose, I used the new stamp set, i {Heart} Hearts, and the punch heart to heart, laminated them, and then glued on a piece of magnet. Of course I made a Spiderman one too
Splitcoast examples here example1, example2,
