Some Stampin'Up Cards, Bag and Tags

Hi there everyone. How did your Monday go? Mine was busy. Went to the store to pick up some more lights for my little tree...for some reason the bottom string died. Guess after 10 years that is a probability...huh??? I found some other old lights and put them no telling how long they will last. But ended up getting some lights that are battery operated....70% hey why not try them.

I had to un-decorate the little tree, pulling everything off. So now to re-decorate it....guess that is life. I may change up a few things. Found some old beaded garland downstairs so I added that to the tree too. Yeah, I think it will look a little bit different this year. Guess that is what makes life interesting.

Yesterday I went to a Stampin'Up Camp with my friend Shirley. She had never been to one of these camps and really enjoyed it. So here is a walk through the things we made. Oh yeah....she won the door prize...some snowflake stamps...yayyyyy!!!
This is a bag that was stamped with snowflakes. Then a card was added to it with some of the same snowflakes.....washi tape was added to the card then stamped on....cute idea, never thought to do that. The card fits in a punched slot so it does not fall off the card. See that little bow at the top??? I won a roll of that ribbon as a door prize.
This was a neat tag to make....the blue part was pre-cut. The dots are stamped. The bottom part of tag, washi tape was layered on it and stamped, To: and From:
Another tag, folded card stock and covered with a patterned paper then a special punch for the top part.
This was's a gift card holder. Using Stampin'Ups envelope maker. You can make dozens of different sized envelopes. Then the buckle was two different punches. The small center was punched then a larger punch used to make the outer buckle. A long strip of black was wrapped around the card holder. Sweet huh?
This tag is a star, with the scalloped punch used and a circle punch for the center. Stamped with one of the stamp sets from Stampin'Up.
This was a neat tag. I do have the upper part of the tag punch and have made lots of tags using this punch. The stamp comes in a set of was Love, one Merry and (forgot the third). Was thinking of ordering this stamp set, but I was just not sure how often I would use this stamp set.
Here is my door prize...another roll of of these days I will get the big door prize....a stamp set!!! Maybe the next Stampin'Up Camp in February will be my lucky day.
This last card we made was this lovely card of a Christmas Cardinal...I really liked the technique and may try this with a few of my next cards that I make. The bird was stamped on punched out cardstock, then stamped again on white cardstock and colored in with markers. Nice effect....I tell you the ideas are endless.

There was one more tag we made, but it did not take a good if I think about it...I will take another and post it in my next blog.

Well, I need to go work on decorating my tree. Have a good evening and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise
