If you arrived here from Christine Giuda’s “Dancin’ Stamps” blog, you’re in the right place! If you’re just starting out, that’s ok, too. You can hop forward until you get back here and still see all the wonderful projects we’ve created for you. You can also return to the Hop Home Page at any time by clicking the “Home” button below or the banner above to go directly to any stop in the hop.
My first project is a CASE (basically “copy”) of a wine bottle topper Linda Wicks (your next hop stop) created during our “Fallidays” hop. I punched a little larger hole in mine so it would fit over a bottle of chocolate milk for a birthday party.
I used the Print Poetry designer series paper stack for the pinwheel. You can use the Sizzlets S Die to create a 2″ square pinwheel in a jiffy, and at $4.95, it’s a bargain! I used part of one of the “Sweet Threads Simply Sent” cards for another project, so I used the Primrose Petals printed card that was leftover for this bottle topper. Add in the 3/8″ striped Organdy Ribbon – Old Olive and the scallop oval punch and you can get the Feeling Sentimental stamp set free! I also used some stitched satin ribbon in Summer Starfruit, the 1-3/4″ circle punch, neutral brads and Gumball Green classic ink.
Here’s the tag I made with the rest of the Sweet Threads kit card.
Cute, right? I cross-stitched a couple of these, but saw a sweet tip at Leadership. Sara used In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to create “Faux Cross Stitch.” Brilliant! If you add the 1-3/4″ circle punch, the scallop rectangle clearlit (used to cut out the flower) and the ribbon and ink used on the bottle topper, you can get two Sale-a-bration items FREE!!!
This is a cool “blackboard card.” I love the look of black and white, but I had to throw in some Cherry Cobbler too.
I inked the rose with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green stampin’ write markers, then cut it out and layered it to the oval (Whisper White craft). The Happy Birthday oval is from our new “Best Of Birthdays” set. I embossed it with White and Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. To finish it off, I sponged a little Whisper White craft ink over the black card stock, then added some Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon.
Remember – during Sale-a-bration, for every $50 of Stampin’ Up! product you purchase, you can select a FREE Sale-a-bration item – including some products from the Annual Catalog. It’s the best time of the year for crafters!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Your next stop is “Nutty for Stampin'” with Linda Wicks. Linda is one of my faves! I’m forever copying her projects.
Enjoy the hop – and have a wonderful day!
