CASE Study 71

CASE Study#71 - Love the creations of Amy Sheffer. How wonderful that she is the inspiration this week at CASE Study. I used Stampin' Up! papers and cardstock. I stenciled a swirl pattern on my dsp with Cherry Cobbler ink. I made my little rosette by hand stitching a running stitch along one edge of my ribbon and adding a Stampin' Up! Button Brad.All inks are Stampin' Up!

PCPCUTTLEBUG-ERS #131

Hello Again:
This will be our last challenge for 2011. The next challenge will not be posted until January 8, 2012. I felt this would give us all a little family time and most of us won't be crafting during the holidays anyway. I will try to get some cards made just to keep my MoJo flowing but probably not participating in challenges and the like until after the 8th anyway.
Now for you challenge should you choose to take it.
Use your dies and make it festive!
I used the 5 point star die from Stampin' Up! to make my star, but instead of only 5 points I gave mine 10! I also border punched and pinch pleated the little centers. Everything is glued together with Tombow adhesives. I would think hot glue would do a decent job here too and less drying time. Remember to have fun and please tag your photos: pcpcuttlebug-ers, pcpcuttlebug, pcpcuttlebug-ers131
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who've commented and/or played along. You've made it all worth while for me and I appreciate it more than you could possibly know. It is my wish that you all have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukkah, Kwansa and Happy Healthy and Properous New Year. See you in 2012.

Inspirational Card Sketches #144

 Front

 Inside

This is a flap card. The Island Indigo cs is cut 4.25" x 11". You fold the top flap at 1.75". Then fold again at 7.25". To keep the card closed I tied a piece of ribbon under the butterfly image. You can barely see it in the first photo. All dsp and cardstock are from Stampin' Up! Some of the dsp are retired. But I wanted to make something a little different this week, since for the past month and a half I've been working on Christmas cards.
This card is entered in the Inspirational Cards Sketches Challenge #144.

Betty's Baked Tortellini

Betty's Baked Tortellini 

1 pkg. Hillshire farms smoked sausage
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 32 oz. box chicken broth
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 lg. package tortellini or 2 smaller packs (1 cheese, 1 Italian sausage)
1 lg. bag of cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)

I usually cook the sauce separate for about 15-30 minutes.
Then in a casserole dish I layer meat in sauce, tortellini, cheese; repeat the process until all ingredients are in the dish. Final layer should always be cheese. It works just as well in a 9 x 13 baking pan as it does in a round baking dish.
Bake 350 covered for 30 minutes. Then remove the lid and turn the temp. to 375 and bake until the cheese is golden brown.

All things Stampin' Up! The stamps are from Jolly Old Saint Nick. The dsp is from Frostwood Lodge and the herringbone dsp is also Stampin' Up! but it is retired. Card stock is Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler and Real Red. I used my snow pen to make Santa a little more festive and I place a tiny crystal in his right eye for a "twinkle".

JFF

Just trying to "tie up" loose ends and finish up my Christmas cards. Here's a beauty made with some of the same decorative papers as the previous post. I added some distress ink and Signo gel (white) to spruce up my holly and berries. Haven't picked a sentiment yet but it will be simple I assure you.

As the days to Christmas dwindle, I find myself behind on my Christmas cards. Yes I played along with tons of challenges over the year but still, still I am behind. So today I just wanted to do something relaxing and on the simpler side. What I came up with is the card you see above. Although the Delightful Decorations stamp is beautiful in and of itself, I had to add some BLING. The dsp and silver twine are both scraps from my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Merry & Type stamp set.
The glitter paper is also Stampin' Up!

Let it Snow! PCP - CUTTLEBUG-ERS130

With the flash.

Without the flash.

I used Whisper White cs and stamped a few snowflakes then I ran it through my Big Shot with the Northern Flurries embossing folder. Then I punched some snwoflakes using my punch stacked them three high and spritzed the entire thing with Frost White Shimmer Mist. I matted it on some soft blue glitter cs.
In the top photo you can see the shimmer mist on the Whisper White cs. It's on the snowflakes too. I added some rhinestones, a sentiment and some white satin ribbon.

So that's it! The challenge this week at on my Cuttlebugers Group at PaperCraftPlanet is LET IT SNOW! anyway, anyhow, anything that says SNOW!

TWISTED 88 JOY

This week the "TWIST" is to incorporate JOY into your card. I got this one totally covered!!!
I love these dsp that I won from Beate last week! I have been en"joy"ing them so much and I will be sorry when I run out.
If you'd like to play along with BOTH DTs this week please visit Twisted Sketches for the sketch and the TWIST.

TWISTED SKETCHES DT ENTRY

The "TWIST" was to use a number. So on the at the bottom I stamped a 25 cent postage stamp. On the card at the top I used 3 snowflakes. I think that may be a liberty but the twist does say "any number, any how."

This is my entry for the Twisted Sketches DT challenge.

CASE Study #68

This one presented a bit of a problem for me. I don't have a die that will cut a half circle. So I had to trace a ribbon spool and then cut my half circle. But I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I love the dsp and the color combo is very Christmas-y.
