Gel a Tins with Authentique Paper

23 Feb

I had such a fun time with this card.  I blew the dust off the ole Cricut and used the Create a Critter cartridge.

I am using all Authentique Papers from the 2 lines called:

Gathering & Celebrate

I am using the Gel a tins stamps called:

Love Knots

First, I embossed the stamp onto a piece of paper in black.

I adhered it to my card front as shown below.

 Next I embossed the Love Knots stamp onto the tree branch and phrase in white.

Then comes the fun part…putting the card together.

A close up of the darling owl!  Isn’t it adorable??

To keep the card closed, I used a homemade repositionable glue dot under the bottom of the owl.

 It lies nice and flat and opens nice an easily:)

I hope you like this as much as I do…

Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

4 Nov
I have such a fun idea to share with you!
The holidays are upon us.  I have an adorable idea for you to try for your Thanksgiving table this year.
How about mini cornucopias and easel place cards?
I had so much fun looking at my dies and figuring out what I could make for this cornucopia.
I think I am the queen of “thinking outside of the box.”
I will tell you my secret ingredients(dies) for each thing you are seeing here.
To start with, I used the Folding Fan.
The pumpkins are made from Wittle Wickers and Dimensional Small Leaves #2.
The tomato is made from Stacker Flower 3 and Leaf.
 The corn is made from the Tulip in the Tulip Frame die.
The vine the grapes are attached to is from Bird on a Branch.   The sunflower is from the Sunflower die.
I made the place cards from the Little Stackers French Flair dies.
The tiny rolled flower is the handle from the Folding Fan die.
All my papers are from Authentique Paper’s new line called Gathering.
SO what do you think?  Can you imagine how cute it would be to have these decorations at your table for Thanksgiving?
This was such a joy to make.  My kids just went nuts when the saw the tiny ears of corn.  They loved it all.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today.
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
Happy Friday oh and Happy Birthday to me!!
Dies used in today’s post:

New {ippity} sets make me HAPPY!!

19 Oct

Borrowing the word from Heather @ I Heart {ippity}, I have some new rub-bah to show you!!

For this card I have used the new set called Loads of Love.

My paper is the new line from Authentique Paper called GATHERING.

I am short on time and words today, so I will not bore you with the mundane details of how I created this card, but if you have any questions, all you have to do is ask!

You know where to find me…right?

I am so in love with {ippity} stamps and creating for I Heart {ippity} is never a chore…only a pleasure!

I feel the same way each time I pull out any of my Authentique Paper products!

I am a thankful person today!

Stop by I Heart {ippity} to see what the Design Team has come up with on this Wednesday Wowzer day.

If you haven’t heard, today is New Release day for Cheery Lynn Designs.

All of the dies in this release are so beautiful.  I have used the Harvest One Frame Die.
