Bow Builder Punch



After opening up and going through all the fun new items I ordered from the Occasions catalog the first thing I tried out was the new Bow Builder Punch.
I opened up the Birthday Bash specialty paper and started punching and made thee bows.  Not sure what to do with them I looked in the catalog for an idea and I had made the same bows they did on their sample card...so that is what I made with the 3 bows.
 
 
Here is a Stampin' Up! video showing how to use the Bow Builder punch:

Evening Star

 
One last Christmas card for this year.
This one features the stamp set White Christmas.  I just love this cute stamp set and the little snowman is my favorite.
 
For the background I embossed stars with the Lucky Stars embossing folder and rubber white craft ink over them to make them stand out.

Added a little star from the In-Color Sequin assortment.
 
 
 Here is a quilt that I made for my sister's birthday last month.  It is called Evening Star.
Wish I had gotten a photo of it quilted because it turned out beautiful.

Nature's Peace

 
This year I have been using up most of my Christmas card samples to send out instead of making one that is the same for everyone, which is what I like to do, but it seems time is flying and I didn't get to it.  I did run out so had to make a few last minute cards so thought I would share this one that is quick and simple.
 
 
 
I heat embossed with white embossing powder this image from the Nature's Peace stamp set on Naturals Ivory cardstock.  I then roughed up the edges and sponged soft suede around the edges (and a couple other colors in the middle that were pastel) and used an image from Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the splatter spots.  I added a little dazzling diamonds and a bow of linen thread and was done!
