Stitched Stockings Post It Pads

Yesterday I made a couple more Post It pads this time using the new Stitched Stockings stamp set.  These little stockings are so cute and come in several styles to choose from.

On the left the two stockings are nudged up on top of the ribbon and mounted with dimensionals to give them the look of hanging from the ribbon.  On the right, the stocking is on a dimensional on top of the ovals and then the oval is also on dimensionals.  The dimensionals give just a little bit of added depth that gives that extra punch to the design.  I also added rhinestones which are REALLY hard to photograph but I hope that you can see slightly glimmering in the pics :-)

I didn't want to use the cherry seam binding again and I was having trouble finding ribbon to match the stocking on the right but I found some Baroque Burgundy which I think is a close enough match to the DSP.

Also I have to confess that I keep cheap, white non-SU cardstock that I use for layering etc but I must have grabbed it accidentally (sometimes the scrap piles get mixed up) and stamped the stockings. They are not as crisp as the the reindeer in my previous post. It really does make a difference what cardstock you use!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Christmas Post It Pads

Today's craft fair project is Post It pads.  I had to use more of the Frostwood Lodge DSP because I just LOVE it and I thought the reindeer from the Winter Post stamp set would be a nice complement to it.


The base of Cherry Cobbler paper is 6-11/16 x 3-1/8".  I scored at 3-1/8" from each end.

Stamps: Winter Post
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Frostwood Lodge

Christmas MOJO208

Yeah, I finally get to play in my stamp room. I've been making soap for our church craft fair for a couple weeks but that's done now.  I checked out MOJO Monday 208 and I thought that I could come up with something. It took me a while to get into the swing but I like the results.




I love the new Frostwood Lodge DP in the Holiday Mini and the Stitched Stockings punch is so fun too!  The card is 4-1/4" square and I think everything else is pretty straight forward.

I don't usually decorate the inside but my daughter has inspired me to do it.  You can see her lovely cards here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spice Cake Post It Pad Holder

Well it's time to really push to make items for my church's upcoming craft fair in November. I'm kinda behind due to family stuff but that's ok.  Here's a post-it note holder made with the delicious Spice Cake DSP in the Holiday Mini catalog.


The outside dimensions are 6-11/16 x 3-1/8". I scored at 3-1/8" from each short end.


Here's a side view to see the layers better.  There are dimensionals between the Spice Cake and flower layer. Also between the flower and the center of the flower. There will be more post-it pads coming soon :-)

Stamps: Posy Punch (hostess)
Paper: Peach Parfait, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Spice Cake DSP
Ink: Pool Party, Peach Parfait
Accessories: Victoria lace ribbon, antique brad, dimensionals, 3/4" circle punch

Pennant Parade Hello

I haven't stamped in about a month because I've been taking care of my parents after my dad's hip surgery.  Mom & Dad are both back home now and I had a few minutes to make a card.  The pennant punch was on my table and some pieces of retired SU designer paper so I grabbed my Pennant Parade stamp set and was off and running.  Here is what I came up with.



It's a simple card and there is a small bloop above one of the hellos.  Don't you just hate when that happens! Oh well.  I used the stamp-a-majig to line up all the hellos but I find it difficult to use it with the acrylic blocks and clear stamps.  I just don't get them lined up as well as with the wood blocks.  I cheated a tiny bit and used non SU yellow/white Bakers twine but that's easy to change out.  The card is also an odd size ( 3-1/2 x 6-1/4") because I wanted it to fit into a standard size envelope.

 I can't wait to play some more with new stuff that has been sitting in a box for a month!!
