I only had time to do two of them the other night, but they are fabulous. I have an ornament exchange next month at church. I am definitely taking one of these. I also think this will be part of my Christmas gift to the family.

My monthly club met the other night. Instead of learning a new stamping technique we learned three quick projects for perfect gift giving. The best part is the supplies were minimal and only used one sheet of Designer Series Paper for all three projects. All of the directions for each can be found on SCS. The direct links are at the bottom of this post.
The images on the Criss Cross Card are from the "In The Spotlight" Hostess Level 2 Stamp Set. They were both stamped in Always Artichoke ink onto Very Vanilla. They were puched out using the Snow Burst and Scalloped Circle Punches. The snow burst image is held on with a brad through all the layers of the insert. When we were done with all the projects there was enough pattern paper left over to make a couple of the gift tags I showed you yesterday.
Here is a list of supplies needed to make all three projects.
1 sheet of Designer Paper 12x12 (Cut into three parts 2-6x6 and 1-12x6)
1 sheet of solid cardstock-Always Artichoke used here
1/4 sheet of coordinating cardstock-River Rock used here
1/2 sheet Neutral cardstock-Very Vanilla used here
Scrap of coordinating solid cardstock-Purely Pomegranate used for tag on insert
1 1/2" x 12" piece of cardstock for card band (Optional)-Purely Pomegrante used here
4 brads (3 for bow & 1 for card tag)
1/16th Hole punch
3 Glue dots or dimentionals for bow
Ribbon-Always Artichoke used here
Paper Cutter with Cutting and Scoring Blades
Punches, Ink and Stamps of choice
Directions for each project can be found by clicking on the name of the item.

That brings me to my blog candy. I have been over 2000 hits for a week or so. All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered. If you would like a second chance at some candy, please link your comment to a thank you card. It can be one you made or one you plan to CASE. I am looking for simple WOW! cards. Something that I could CASE about 75 cards in a day or two.
You have until Tuesday at 8:00 pm CT to enter. I don't have a picture as of yet. There is a free stamp set involved. I will pick one winner randomly (DD picks out of a hat) from all the comments.
THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK!!

A few people have asked if I would make cards for them. I sat down the other day and made a couple of samples for each of them. I will try and show you one each day this week. I am chairman of our church craft bazaar this weekend and have an incredibly time consuming job with set up this week. Please be patient, I will do my best to show you some new things.
On to todays card.
The first request was for some baby announcements. She wanted them to be very simple. I only own one "baby" stamp set and it was retired in July. This basic design would work with many stamp sets, in many colors, with many sentiments.
The bunny is colored in with markers to match the Designer Prints So Saffron Paper. On the left edges of the image I went over the coloring with a second layer of the same marker color to give it a little shading. The mat for the image and the sentiment is Sage Shadow cardstock. The ribbon is white grosgrain. I cut a length, tie the knot and then attached it to the card with some snail adhesive. The sentiment is from "warm words" and punched out with the small oval punch. It is layer on a piece punched with the large oval punch.
For the announcments, the birth information would be placed on the inside of the card. This card could also be used as a card for the new mom. The colors are very gender neutral, but can be changed easily with the selection of Designer Paper. Then simply color the bow to match the paper or gender of the baby.

I have volunteered to make a meal for her family on Friday. Angela is an on the go person who is always doing things for others. I wanted to make her something special to make her feel better that she has to stop and rest. What better way to do that than with chocolate.
I made her a chipboard coaster box using the "Cutie Pie" Designer Series Paper. I had to hide the candy from my DD, I will add that tomorrow. I covered the four sides of the box with the Designer Paper. The inside is covered with Bashful Blue. The bottom on inside bottom are covered with Old Olive. I used the same image on each side. It is from the "Greetings Galore" stamp set. This set is perfect for any quick note card you could ever need.
I had a few pieces of the Designer Paper left over so I also made her a card and candy wrap. The base of both items is Bashful Blue. The ribbon is Wide Old Olive Grosgrain. The simple tag on the candy is from "Loads of Love". I punched it out with the tag punch and attached it to a scallop circle with a brad. Be sure to check out the after Halloween candy sales. I got this giant Kit Kat bar for only a quarter today. I got a few (19) extras just in case. :wink:
The card uses the largest flower in the Pretties Kit. It is held on with the rhinstone brad that came in the kit. The sentiment, from "Sincere Salutations", is stamped on Old Olive and punched out with the Key Tag Punch.
I used less than one sheet of Designer Paper, 2 sheets of Bashful Blue and 1/2 sheet of Old Olive. This was a quick simple project that will hopefully warm her heart. Try one for a friend of yours today.
