I wanted to share 1 of the cards that I will be sending out for Christmas. I used some wire from my stock, some light stickers, that I found in the doll house section at Michael's.
I used a Martha Stewart Anywhere Punch to cut the circle out, and a scallop punch to make the wreath around the hole.
I also used these lights that I found in the dollhouse section also at Michael's The deer that I used was made from the Stampin Up Owl Builder punch # 3118074 IN THE 2013-2014 Catalog, and you can order anything Stampin Up right from my blog.
Oh the deer that is tangled up in the lights is on an Action Wobbler thing (I could go and check what the exact name of the wobbler thing, but I am being lazy cause I hurt my back, so if you don't know the name, and would like to, just email me.) Anyway, if you choose to set the reindeer loose, he would be so grateful, that he will wobble for you!! Any questions, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks, I hope you like it!!!!

Hi guys, I have missed being on here and bopping around looking at all the wonderful things that you talented ladies create!! I was just thinking that I finally caught up to what I thought I could manage to do before Christmas, when my WONDERFUL Aunt Nellie called and asked if I remembered the snowmen that I made for her a few years ago, and wanted to know if I could make her about 9 or 10??!? AUUGGGGGGGHHH!!! Of course I said yes I would be happy to make them for her, but I would have to come over and pick some of them up so I could see or even remember what they looked like!! So I thought that I would share them with you. I learned how to make these from a scrapping weekend that my Local Scrapbook Store sponsored. Just to give them a plug, and in case someone finds themselves in Southern MA with nothing to do, the name of the store is Right AT Home Scrapbooking!! Anyway, here they are:
These are 2 of the 4 that I made for her. They are actually very easy to make. All you need is some little glass vases, they are at Michaels for about $1.00-$2.00
You then fill the vases, just about 1/4 of the way with pearl like beads. You could put any kind you have, not expensive, and any size you like.
Then you glue a styrofoam ball to the opening of the vase. I also covered the styrofoam ball with glue and rolled it through fine glitter, like the clear, or white color.
The face has pink cheeks that are deliberately made to look like round pink circles, and with black pearls for the eyes and a\the mouth, You then just decorate as you wish, I used white marabou which is kind of feathery poofy like material.
Then you pick papers that go together, and decorate till the cows come home!!
I hope you all like them, and I will post pictures when I finish the 9 or 10 hahaha Karen♥

I recently got my new products for my kit from Stampin Up. I am still working on my things for the craft fair that I am in at the end of the month. I have managed to take over at least 4 of the rooms in my house. I am not kidding, there are boxes, bags, and everything that goes along with crafting, all over the place. I have been able to figure out my problem, and why I make such a mess when I scrap. I get bored very easily,and I can't just work on one project at a time, so instead of making something, and then cleaning up after, I don't finish that project. Then I take everything out to start the next project, and so on and so on. So, now that I have my new toys, (oh sorry, my new supplies for my new company that I am working for to make money to support my "buisness") (Just in case my hubby reads, they are supplies! lol) supplies, I have yet again started a new project!! I got the best punch!! It is an owl, but you can do so much more with it, as you will soon see!!
For the Christmas owl, I took the punch, and punched out everything in red, and everything in white. I actually punched out a bunch of extra white dots, (the smaller of the 2 sizes on the punch.) I used the red and white (shirts, I don't know what to call it) to do his "clothes" and for the hat, I just freehand cut out the red hat piece, and the extra white dots, and made a hat.
After you punch out another owl, you cut off the feet.
Then you take the paper that you just cut the owl out of, and it should look like the paper below,
and you slide that end back into the punch, and punch a bunch of this "S" like pieces. You actually only need 4 per reindeer.
This is what they look like once you cut them. You then take 2 and glue them to the back of the owl (actually the reindeer) like in the photo below.
After you glue the 2 pieces to the back, you then cut the remaining 2 in half.
After you cut the remaining 2 in half, you glue 1 to each side of the original pieces that you already glued on the back.
Once you do that you can see how your owl now looks like a reindeer!!!
To finish the reindeer, you can use the pieces that are left over from punching out the owl. You just need to punch the extra pieces in white and black, or punch out the white ones and use a marker to color in the eyes.
You can also use those googly eyes, if you like that look better. Then it is time to pick your nose (haha I didn't get that till just now!! Clearly I don't mean literally!! haha) I have used just a red circle, or a brown one, and it makes a difference what kind of nose, and where you place it. Play with it, and see what you like.
The reindeer below, has a pom - pom nose, and the one on the right below, I used red glitter for Rudolf, and basic brown for the other 2.
The next thing that I like to make with this punch, is a penguin. I know, it sounds weird, but he is really sweet, watch:
I told ya, Isn't he sweet!!!
With your Owl punch, punch out Orange, White, and Black.
From the Orange, you will need the feet, and 1 ear.
From the Black, you need to cut off the ears, and also punch out a 3/4" circle, and then cut it in half. I also cut a 1/4" strip out of the middle of the circle to make it skinnier. From the White you need the smaller of the 2 size circles, and the "shirt" piece.
Take the orange feet, and glue them over the black feet. Then take the Orange ear, and trim it up for the beak.
Glue the 2 White circles on either side of the beak.
Color in the White circles however you like for the pupils of the eyes.
You can add little black marks on the beak for definition, with a little white dot on the eyes. I have a few more things that I am working on with this punch which is called the Owl Builder and is product # 118074 With Whisper White paper #100730, Basic Black #121045, Pumpkin Pie #105117 I hope that you found this at least helpful. If you have any questions, Please call me or email me, and I will get back to you as soon as I can!! Karen♥
