MFPS Nov Stamp Release Hop... HERE

Cut It Up Ch#7
Make a 3D Holiday project. It's your choice which holiday you decide to do, just make sure you include a DIE CUT.
Challenge ends Dec. 12th @ NOON EST.
Prize:
Sponsored by Cut It Up

Here is my project for this challenge:


#473

  • Christmas Trees from CTMN ARTISTE p. 53 cut in various sizes (shop CTMH with LUCY)
  • Glitter stickers are from the Dollar General (I love the moose one!)
  • "Lights" on trees are CANDI "Very Merry Silver" collections (Shop CANDI @ CRAFTWORK CARDS)
  • Papers are from various Christmas packs left over from last year
I really enjoyed making these 3D Christmas Trees. At first I thought it was going to be complicated, but it wasn't. I scored all the folds first with my Martha Stewart scoring board, and everything was so easy peasy.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll come play with us in our 3D Holiday project challenge (don't forget to always include a Die Cut) @ Cut It Up!

Today we are featuring "Amaryllis Definition" stamp set.





Here is my project using this new stamp set!

#491
This card was patterned after a card my good friend, Mary, made. I changed just a little of the details here and there, but basically, it's like the card she made.
  • A2 size POSTCARD 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Black card base
  • Dotted mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Black mat cut @ 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  • Yellow mat cut @ 3 3/8" x 4 5/8" and dry embossed with Honeycomb folder
  • Black strip cut @ 1 1/8" x 3 3/8"
  • Flower mat cut @ 1" x 3 3/8"

  • Blue baker's twine used for accents (Thanks, Theresa!)
  • Buttons, glitter, and rhinestones added for embellishments
  • MFPS "Amaryllis Definition" for sentiment stamp

Here's another project I made using this stamp set:

Tom, Bonnie, and I went to the mountains for a weekend in March of this year (2012) and stayed in a cabin. It rained almost the entire time. To say it rained more than it didn't rain is not exaggerating. BUT we still had a good time like we always do, because everything is an adventure.  This was the weekend Tom took the MENSA test... and he passed way above what was needed by the way. (I always knew he was brilliant, and you guys just thought I was saying that because he's my hubbub.)

I love the "Remember..." stamp in MFPS "Amaryllis Definition" set being released this week. It could be used for military pages, family vacations, important events, life-changing moments, etc. 

#484
