Happy Thanksgiving!!

Love this holiday!  We are getting ready today for our great feast, family and fun!



Sydni, the granddaughter of Mother Daughter Stampin, is preparing the first of our feast - Pumpkin Spice cupcakes!  Thanksgiving day she will frost it with Cream Cheese frosting. Yum!!

I made a little something to put at everyone's place setting.  I got this idea from Angie of ChicnScratch.  Front and back, a little somethin in the middle.

 

I thought this was a very cool blessing and treat.  I couldn't help doing a little Turkey punch art on the back.  I got that idea from Jenny Day.  A close up below:




Of course I had to fill in Bugles, Pretzels, Candy Corn, Fruit and peanuts for everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

All Occation Cards for Christmas gifts!

I love to make cards!  I think it is a great idea to give a stack of cards as a Christmas gift.  The thought and time to produce these card says to the recipient they mean a lot to you.  Recently I made these cards:







I usually CASE cards which means 'copy and share everything' so I do try to give credit for the original design.





This was cased from Mary Fish - Blog Stampin Pretty





This was cased from Susan Itell - Blog Simple Stampin






This was cased from Cindy Schuster - Blog Nutmeg Creations



The following Three are cased from......






Tami White - Blog Stamp with Tami

I made all the gift boxes too!  They were cased from Catherine Pooler, she has a video that gives step by step directions for making boxes.  I used note card sizes (3 1/2" x 5").  I needed a box that was 2" high - so my measurements are:

Bottom: 9 1/2 x 8  Scored all around at 2"
Top:  9 9/16 x 8 1/16  Scored all around at 2 "

If you keep in mind that the top of the box needs to be 1/16th of an inch bigger than the bottom you should not have a problem.


I did manage to make the tags all by myself.  I used Stampin Up! Scallop Tag Topper (SU# 133324) and embossed the edges using VersaMark and silver and gold embossing powder.

Well that's it for this post.....Happy Stampin!   :-)
