Do you remember the fun Wicked Witch Card I posted when I made my September Paper Pumpkin kit?

Well, I couldn't stop at ONE Wicked Witch... I had to make more!

Wicked-witch-punch-art-hello-pretty-cards

Isn't she just too cute??

Guess what I used for her shoes on these cards?  the Bitty Butterfly Punch (on sale today only - see special above!)

I know those aren't bats on the paper.. but they look close.. right?  They are printed on the Modern Medley Designer Paper.

I really think the secret is in embossing her dress and hat pieces with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder and the Big Shot... it really brings her to life!

Wicked-witch-punch-art-hello-pretty

 

Here is how we created the Witch using Stampin' Up! punches and framelits:

Witch-punch-art-supplies

A couple of tips:

  • cut the dress form in 1/2 and use the bottom 1/2 of it for her arms
  • emboss the dress and hat pieces with the embossing folder
  • practice before you draw the lips :)

New! 20 Card Stamp Kit! Everyday Occasions Kit

----------------

Saturday was my monthly free My Paper Pumpkin gathering... my local subscribers gather together and have fun putting together the samples from our monthly My Paper Pumpkin kits.

Just before the class I saw a cute Wicked Witch Punch Art idea on Pinterest by Elizabeth and we all decided we wanted to make a witch to add to our My Paper Pumpkin cards!  Speaking of Pinterest...

Follow Me on Pinterest for lots of creative ideas!

Witch-punch-art-my-paper-pumpkin-september

Isn't this just an adorable use of the Dress Up Framelits from Stampin' Up!?  You can see all my Dress Up Samples here.

The "target" on the printed My Paper Pumpkin Cards reminded many people of a spider web and Halloween, so we went with that for our theme...

These are the 4 cards I created... one that was basically per the kit instrutions and then 3 Halloween cards:

September-my-paper-pumpkin-halloween

I used some supplies from the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (find it on pg 31 of the Holiday catalog), $9.95.

Here is how we created the Witch using Stampin' Up! punches and framelits:

Cinco de Mayo SPECIAL through 5/7

--------------------------

When I grew up and shopped for a prom dress (back in the dark ages), I can assure you it looked nothing like this... but.. from what I have seen in the stores in the mall lately, this could absolutely be a 2013 Prom Dress!

Dress up glimmer roses

I used the Stampin' Spritzers with 70% rubbing alcohol and some Basic Black Reinker to spritz the Silver Glimmer paper for this dress (see this post for more info).. .isn't it gorgeous and dramatic!?

For MORE ideas spritzing your GLIMMER PAPER, click HERE and HERE

I also used the Stampin' Spritzers with 70% rubbing alcohol and a few drops or Regal Rose reinker to spritz the vanilla flower trim.

See video here for more ideas to color your flower trim.

Dress up glimmer roses 2

The background was embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing folder (#127819) and then sponged with a little Regal Rose ink.

Finish off this beautiful dress with Pearls (#119247) and some Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon (#120999)

I sent this card to Shelli at Stampin' Up! after she had called to congratulate me on a sales milestone and we chatted about the Dress Up! ensemble ... I hope she liked it!

Stampin' Up!

Birthday Ideas 

in the tour this month!! 


 You have probably joined me after visiting Connie Babbert's marvelous blog, and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.   

You know how much I love the adorable Dress Up Collection by Stampin' Up!, and I have been using the Dress Up Framelits (#130101) to make cute girlfriend Birthday cards!

Dress up sunshine sprinkles card

This dress form is set off by placing it on a Whisper White die cut from the Apothecary Accents framelits (#127003)

I used Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Paper for the background and for the dress, and then I used a Stampin' Up! Doily (#129399) that I dyed with some Regal Rose ink in a cup of water!

Dress up sunshine sprinkles card apron

A bow of Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon (#121844) at the waist finishes off this dress.

The Happy Birthday stamp (from one of the MOST OVERLOOKED stamp sets, "Made for You", pg 44 in the Annual catalog, #126340/126342) is stamped on a die cut tag from the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598)... I added some extra happiness to the tag with the Stampin' Paper Piercer (#126189) and the Festive Paper Piercing Pack (#127857).

My 2nd birthday greeting also features the Dress Up Dies in a snazzy color combo of Calypso Coral and Midnight Muse! 

Did you know you can make a cute collar for these dresses????  See below for instructions.

Dress up print poetry collar 1

Don't you love the script background? It's a piece of printed paper from the Print Poetry Package, found on pg 16 in the Spring Stampin' Up! catalog, #129312.

Happy Day to You is found on pg 137 of the Annual Catalog and is available in wood or clear (#126149 / 126151).

Midnight Muse In Color ribbon makes a cute belt! #126847

The cute flower is from the Decorate A Daisy set, pg 115 Annual Catalog, #125989 / 125991.  I used it for both the collar and the punched flower below.  Top it all off with an In Color Designer Printed Brad, #122940.

Thank you sooo much for your amazing comments on my

first DRESS UP FRAME project!

I have frame #2 to share with you today!

Dress frame 1

I know what you are thinking... this girl never grew up... she's still playing with Paper Dolls... well, I guess so! :)

The secret to these ADORABLE dresses is the

STAMPIN UP DRESS UP FRAMELITS!

You can view these on pg 32 of the Spring Catalog,

or online here.  It's amazing to think about the amount of pleasure these simple $24.95 framelts have brought me!

Here are some close ups and details on each dress.

Dress up tea for two 1This dress is cut from a piece of Designer Paper from the Tea for Two DSP package.

You can see all the patterns on pg 3 in the Spring mini catalog, or HERE ONLINE.

I added a row of pearls at the waist and a Flower brooch.

cuteness, right?

 The difference between this set of dresses and my first frame, is that for these dresses i mounted them on the Dress Form that is a part of the Framelit set.  I cut them out of Basic Gray cardstock.

  BELOW:

I cut a doily for an apron for this dress, and the dress is cut out of a piece of DSP from the Print Poetry Paper Stack. 

Victoria Lace Crochet trim and Cherry Cobbler Twine finish off the waist.

Doesn't this just look like something from the 30's or 40's?

 Dress up print poetry dsp raspberry

 

 BELOW:  This dress also features the Print Poetry Designer Paper Stack... the dress is cut in 2 pieces and "pieced" together at the waist, under the Midnight Muse ribbon sash.

The fun print just speaks for itself on this one!  Dress up print poetry dsp blue

  Dress up gossamer lace 1

ABOVE and BELOW

 OK, I will admit.. I thought this was mighty clever and really thinking outside the box (or outside the dress!)...

THIS cute little cocktail dress is actually the Gossamer Lace stamp cut out with the dress framelit!!

I know..

I know..

too fun!

Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon and a flower cinch up the waist and a sweetheart necklace of pearls completes this sweet outfit!

Dress up gossamer lace

Dress up paper doilyOur last ensemble today is another Tea for Two designer dress... with a colored doily (sponged with Regal Rose) and some new Old Olive 3/8" striped Organdy Ribbon at the waist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Ok, if you are still with me... which one do you like best?  Leave me a comment if you have time. 

I plan to have a class this spring to make a frame with dresses... anyone want to come?

So, how cute is THIS!!? ... I dyed a new Paper Doily (pg 5 in the Spring Catalog, #129399) and die cut it with the Dress UP die, then added a strip of the (oh my gosh gorgeous) Delicate Details Lace Tape! (Spring catalog, pg 3, #130966) for the  apron in this cute little dress!

 

The Dress is die cut with the Dress Up Framelit, #130101 and the new Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP, Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog, pg 28, #126922

I dyed a vintage flower from the new 5/8" Flower Trim package and added it to the dress. (Spring catalog pg 5, #126869)

Stay tuned for more info on dying the flowers and doilies.

The Apron is a piece I had stamped embossed in white then watercolored over .. I had it sitting on my desk for months.. so i cut it up and used it as an apron!!  I stamped it with the Delicate Doilies stamp set (pg 110, #122590)

 

 Ok, if you are still with me... which one do you like best?  Leave me a comment if you have time.   I hope you check back again later this week.. I made another frame with 5 more dresses and will be posting the other frame soon!
