Envelope punch board

Happy Monday!  As promised I have a few of the projects we created with the envelope punch board at our team leader's class on Saturday. 

This mini file folder treat holder holds a Ghiradelli Easter treat.  Super easy to make and super fun. This would make a great treat year around for teachers, co-workers, neighbors.  Just a little something to let them know you appreciate them. Who doesn't like a little chocolate and a pat on the back now and then!


This little guy holds a chocolate bunny but could hold a variety of other goodies. The box was made with the envelope punch board and the bunny is all punch art with various Stampin Up punches.

Stop back tomorrow for more projects.  If you would like instructions for either of these treat holders just send me an e-mail.

Busy week….

Wednesday night I had a card class. We made four cards and a little notebook with a watercolored cover. Fast and easy.  My next class is Easter themed. We'll be making cards and baskets and a neat place setting for the Easter table.  If you live in or around Green Bay Wi and want to join us it is April 5 9:30 am to 1:00.  I just need an RSVP 3 days in advance because everything is pre-cut for you. Just e-mail me. I would be glad to have you join us.   Tomorrow my team leader for Stampin Up is having a class featuring the Envelope Punch Board which of course makes more than envelopes.  Stop back next week and I will share the projects.   

Have a great week end,

Subtle Colors

This card has very little stamping, only the greeting from the Petite Pairs stamp set. The base card is Crisp Cantaloupe CS. The second layer is from the Sweet Sorbet DSP from the Sale a Bration catalog. (don’t forget the Sale a Bration catalog only runs through March 31.)  For every $50 purchased from any of the current Stampin Up catalogs you receive a free gift from the Sale a Bration Catalog.  The next layer and the Starburst are Pool Party CS. Starburst is from the new Starburst Framelits Dies 132967 $26.95 or bundle it with the Starburst Sayings stamp set 134818 $38.95.  The flower was fussy cut from a sheet of DSP from the Watercolor Collection.    This was an easy fun card to create.  Hope you enjoy. 002

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great week end. My hubby and I started our painting projects. We have one wall done in our TV room.  Turns out the wood is actually barn wood. We painted it Cherry Cobbler. The bugger was getting the paint in all the grooves.  It looks great so far though.

Thought I would share this card which was made from a negative punched piece of Calypso Coral CS. I had punched a flower with the Blossom Punch (125603  $16.95) for an earlier project.  I mounted DSP from the watercolor design collection onto Pear Pizzazz CS.  I punched a flower with the Pansy Punch (130698 $15.95) from Crisp Cantaloupe CS and a smaller center from So Saffron CS with the 7/8 inch Scallop Circle (129404 $12.95). I cut slits from the edge to the center to give it more dimension. I popped the flower inside the negative space on the original CS and added the pearls.  The greeting is from the Happy Watercolor stamp set (133191 $21.95). I used to different colored markers Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze on the greeting.   Hope you enjoy.

Hugs and happy stamping!  MB


Spring at last….or not!

Spring is finally here at least on the calendar but in Wisconsin we are a little behind. Still a chilly 28 degrees.  On a good note our daffodils are peeking up under our bedroom window so there is still hope!

I decided to bring Spring a liitle closer with this bright colored card.


The base card is Stampin Up's So Saffron. I stamped a full sheet of Whisper White CS with the Flower Shop Set and Memento Black ink.  By doing this you can cut any portion from the full sheet and color in a variety of techniques. For this card I used the Subtles Collection markers from Stampin Up. I mounted this piece onto Melon Mambo CS. The greeting is from Itty Bitty Banners.  You can order any of these from me 24/7.  Check out my website 3catsastampin.stampinup.net.

Have a good week end and thanks for looking.
