Reindeer clips

Hello Stampers!  I have some super cute reindeer clips that we have made in a couple of my classes lately to show you.

P1120903-001Aren't they adorable?  And super easy to make!  They are actually on clothespins, so they would be super cute clipped on the ribbon of a present!

Can you tell which punches they are made from?  The head, eyes, and nose are from the Owl Builder punch (118074) and the antlers are from the Bird Builder punch (117191).

I used my all time favorite Christmas designer series paper, Be of Good Cheer (126896) to cover both sides of the clothespin!

These will be super cute with hearts for Valentine's Day, The Easter Bunny for Easter, etc!  Can't wait to see what else I can come up with!

On The 5th Week of Christmas...

My true love gave to me, and glass jar filled up with candy!

Hello Stampers!  For the Christmas gift this week, I want to show you a really cute candy jar that I made!

Blog 913 I know, it's filled with Halloween candy still, but that seems to be what I have the most of right now!!!  So just pretend!  This was super easy and fast to make!  I used the Vintage Ornaments Decor Elements and applied it to my jar!  The elements are $16.95 for four ornaments, and I used the small size.  You can even get them in four different colors, Real Red, Black, Chocolate and White.  Now I still have three ornaments left to make more gifts with!  Here are the supplies that I used:

  • 117578 Real Red Vintage Ornaments Decor Elements
  • 115608 Real Red 3/4" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon

If you would like to order either of these items, hot on over to my website at www.dinalstamps.stampinup.net and click on the SHOP NOW in the top right hand corner.

Christmas Card Friday and Computer Decor Elements!

Hello Stampers!  I have to show you what I did with my decor elements today!

Blog 832 Isn't that neat???  I just love the Upsy Daisies decor elements!  In the Decor Elements catalog, they showed it on a laptop, so I had to try it too!  They don't have it in any shade of purple, so I used the Rose Red!  Very easy to do and it only costs $9.95!

Today is also Christmas Card Friday!  Today I picked a pretty, simple, religious card to show.  I love the stamp set Holy Triptych.  It is very elegant.  And I wanted to show you that you don't have to color it in every time.  I colored in the star with a Summer Sun marker and went over it with Crystal Effects.
 That gives it dimension and bling.

Blog 833 I also sponged around the edges of the Very Vanilla cardstock so that there wasn't such a contrast to the Chocolate Chip mat.  Here's all of the materials used:

  • 110370 Holy Triptych stamp set
  • 111556 Under The Stars stamp set
  • 102125 Kraft cardstock
  • 102030 Ruby Red cardstock
  • 102128 Chocolate Chip cardstock
  • 101650 Vanilla cardstock
  • 100908 Chocolate Chip stamp pad
  • 102259 Ruby Red stamp pad
  • 100077 Summer Sun stampin' write marker
  • 101055 Crystal Effects
  • 101610 Stamping sponges
  • 111849 Chocolate Chip 1" double-stitched grosgrain ribbon

Vinyl Decor

Hello Stampers!  We've sort of gone Decor Elements crazy at out house!  We just love them!  These are the vinyl home decorations that SU! has come out with.  There are a bunch of new designs in the new Decor Elements catalog.  You can view it on my left side bar by simply  clicking on the image of the decor elements catalog, or if you are like me and have to see it in person, just let me know and I will get a catalog to you!

Amie and I decorated the girls bathroom with them a few months ago.  We used the Ginormous Flowers and the Flitting By.  The girls helped me put up butterflies from the Flutter group the other day in my stamping room.  They really are easy to do!  I know I showed how to adhere them then, but the girls wanted me to do another post so that I could take pictures of them putting them up!

Blog 715 First I cut all of my butterfly pieces apart.  Take one piece and rub all over it with the grid paper facing up.  You can use the applicator tool, or I use my scraper for my baking stone!







Blog 716 Gently peel the grid paper off making sure your decal is stuck to the transfer paper.







Blog 717

Position the decal on your wall by touching your transfer paper to your wall.  Gently rub your decal starting from the center and moving out to all of the edges.  Peel your transfer paper off and you are finished!  Since I took a pic of Casie adhering it.....





Blog 718 I had to show that Amie could do it too!  Even in their pajamas!!!







Blog 713 This is what my wall looks like all finished!  I love it!








Blog 714 I was thrilled when they came out with the All In the Family line so that I could put them on the back window of my car!  Aren't they cute!!!!!!  And the best part is that they are only $3.95 per figure!

Let me know if you are ready to have fun with the decor elements too!

Happy Stampin' and TTFN!


Happy Saturday!

Hello Stampers!  I spent a couple of hours today with my youngest daughter Amie, decorating the girl's bathroom.  We bought two sets of the new Decor Elements, Ginormous Flowers II and Flitting By I.

Blog 103 This is what our largest wall looks like!  Isn't it great looking!  The girls love it!!!  The new decor elements are really very easy to put up.  Here are your directions:






Blog 095

1)  Cut your elements apart if there is more than one piece on a sheet.  Turn the piece over on a flat surface so that the graph side is facing up.  Rub firmly over the piece with the decor elements applicator (I just used a plastic scraper) being sure to cover design completely.





Blog 097 2)  Gently pull up the graph paper slowly making sure entire design sticks to the applicator sheet.  The applicator sheet is very sticky.  Be sure too not to touch the design.






Blog 098 3)  Find where you want your piece to go on the wall and just barely touch the applicator sheet to the wall.







Blog 099 4)  With your applicator tool, start in the center of the design and press firmly moving toward the outside of the piece.  This will take several strokes to move all of the way around the design.  This will prevent bubbles from forming.





Blog 101 5)  Gently start pulling the applicator sheet off, making sure that the piece is sticking to the wall as you go.  If it starts to pull away from the wall, lay the applicator sheet back over that area and rub some more.  Repeat this process to add layers too.





Blog 102

6)  Stand back and enjoy your creativeness!


My 11 year old and I put up a total of 86 pieces in two hours!  Not too bad!


Happy Stampin' (and adhering!) and TTFN!
