April Hostess Projects

Plane & Simple
We used a distressing technique to create the background paper by stamping with our clear block!

A cute bunny box using the Petal Cone die (altered just a bit) and punches!

Create a Cupcake and Build a Cupcake punch card using the Faux Stitching technique.

We used the BAM technique with Daffodil Delight and More Mustard! Two colors you would probably never use together otherwise! Ha! This card featured the Build a Blossom set and the Blossom Petals Punch!

Almost all of these items can be found in the Occasions Mini which expires 4/30!
You can order your supplies online at http://www.andreamason.stampinup.net/ or email me!

Bouncing Brayer Rocks!

Here's a technique we did at our Hostess club! We used a brayer, not quite navy classic ink, and glossy card stock. You ink your brayer and "bounce" or stroke the brayer while turning the card stock to create this cool star effect! Then we stamped the focal image using Stazon ink.
Quite fun!

Love Birds!

I am so in love with this scrapbook! Doris Denman created one and posted it on our demonstrator website. I seriously couldn't get the Love Birds Simply Scrappin' kit ordered fast enough! Come to find out... I didn't have all of the same Big Shot dies that she did to create the whole scrapbook... but that did not stop me! I just went with it! Some of the pages are CASE (copy and steal everything), while others are my own. I am so in love with this (did I already mention that?)!  Anyway... there are 14 pages and 2 of those are fold out pages - so really, there are 16 pages in this album. And, it only used up 1/2 of a Simply Scrappin' kit!! Woo hoo!! The best part?! It is in a clear mount stamp case!! Small enough to throw in your purse, big enough to show off your photos! Did I mention that it took less than 2 hours to cut and asseble everything? I love it!!

I'll be hosting a class so you can complete your own scrapbook! Watch for more details soon!! Almost everything will be cut and ready to go - so a whole scrapbook in less than 2 hours?! Be still my heart!

Happy birthday!

I made a resolution to keep a stack of birthday cards on hand this year! So what better way to accomplish that goal than to host a Stamp A Stack featuring birthday cards! The new Occasions Mini had a little to do with that resolution because I LOVE the cupcake punch!!

Here are a few of the cards that we will be making on Saturday, January 15th from 9-12. If you'd like to join us, please reserve your spot by January 11th and let me know how many cards you'd like to make! They are $2.00 each with a 5 card minimum.

I LOVE comments too!

 Please excuse the M&Ms... my gumballs have been stolen! :) I will have replaced them before the class!

The Countdown is on!

I made these countdown blocks for the craft fair. They were a hit! So much so that I had orders for more! You can find a tutorial here if you want to tackle this craft. Mine are a little different - but I love them the same! Hubby cut and sanded the wood for me. Then I painted, mod podged, and put vinyl on the blocks. I used the black Stampin' Up! vinyl in my Cricut to create the numbers and words. A perfect gift for teachers, friends, co-workers... or in your own home to help little ones countdown to their big day. I used birthday countdown, days until Christmas, days until vacation, days until Daddy comes home, and a regular countdown on mine.  

This little light of mine...

I love this candle!
I used my Stampin' Up! black vinyl to cut the nativity on my Cricut. Used Transfer Tape to apply it to the glass, and a bow and presto!! Done! Sweet!!

Snowman Soup!

To keep up with tradition... I made my son's music teacher gifts at the last minute - literally!
These snowman soup cups are super easy and quick to do, and who doesn't love that?!

I found these cups at T@rget (10 for $2.49). I added a package of cocoa with the marshmallows. You can add the marshmallows in a baggie if you'd like - but I don't care for touching other people's food. A candy cake for stirring. And a few kisses. The Whisper White tag has the snowman soup poem printed on it. Easy! Sweet! Fun! Go get some!

When the weather outside is frightful,
Snowman Soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
When you feel a chill or are saying "brrrr,"
Use the candy cane stick to stir.
Add hot water and sip it slow.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

My favorite so far!!

I'm still on my simple is good trip! I love, love, love how beautiful this card is!

I used the brushed silver card stock and Whisper White card stock here. The image is from the Gifts of Christmas set that I embossed in Silver, and added a few rhinestones to give it a little more sparkle!

Heard from the heart.

I love how this simple card turned out! Quick and easy! That's my style these days.
This card uses the sentiment from Heard from the Heart, and the ornament is from the Tags Til Christmas set that is in the Holiday Mini. Cute!
