Pop Up Ornament Tag- a partial case

I made this pop up ornament/tag many years ago, so thought it was time to revisit this unique Christmas decoration and update it.

I revisited the original video tutorial by Tammy White in 2010 here  and then looked at her Nov. 2017 updated one here

Check out my post on December, 2012 here.  I made numerous ones for my craft shows and they were very popular.

The ones I made in 2012 are below:

Believe it or not I still have the original stamp set (Snowflake Soiree), and did use it to stamp the image of the large snowflake but used a more up-to-date stamp set for the second side.

And instead of using Very Vanilla card stock exclusively, like Tammy, I experimented with using the lovely new DSPs.

Seasonal Lantern

Would you believe this is my last Christmas card made for my last Craft Christmas Market!!  I have now officially made a card  using  every  Christmas stamp set with or without coordinating dies that I own.  I have used this stamp set to make an Autumn card, but not a Christmas card.

I chose to die cut the Lantern using Bronze foil paper and inserted 3 silver embossed candles inside. I really enjoy mixing metallic colours. The lantern is built on a background embossed with the Holly embossing folder.
At the base of the lantern I placed some greenery, and altered a fall fruit into a Christmas one.
A real red bow was adhered to the lantern top.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Season Lantern, Versatile Christmas
Inks:  Versa Mark, Black Memento Stampin' Blendabiliies (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Light Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler)
Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White. Copper Foil
Accessories:  Lantern Builder Dies, Dimensionals, Silver embossing powder, Holly Embossing folder, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds. Adhesive sheets, Classic Label Punch

Sneak Peek Sale-a-bration item - Panda Birthday

This is a special card for 2 reasons.  One, it is a Sale-a-bration item, one which will be free starting Jan. 3, 2018 with a purchase of $60.  And- secondly because I finally mastered creating an electrical circuit and added Chibi lights to this card.  Two of the balloons light up.

These Panda bears are absolutely adorable!!!  And they make a marvelous birthday card.

I coloured the Pandas and balloons with SU markers and then applied Wink of Stella.  The red balloon was stamped an extra time on a separate piece of card stock cut out and added to the original red balloon with a dimensional.

As I mentioned, Chibi lights were added to this card.  Press the yellow tummy of the second Panda, and two lights come on - a yellow one and a red one.

Below is a picture I took of the card in the dark.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Party Panda
Inks:  Black Memento, SU markers (Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black)
Papers:  Pacific Point, Whisper White
Accessories:  Chibi lights, copper tape, foam adhesive sheets dimensionals.
