I can't believe it's almost the end of October!  So many things to make with so little time.

Last weekend I was at a girl's weekend at the beach playing with my Stampin' Up! toys.  I love the votive candle luminaries I have seen posted and decided to make one.  The first one I made using the Holy Triptych stamp set with gold embossing and very vanilla textured card stock.   I had my Delightful Decorations stamp set and ornament punch so I decided to make a luminary using an embossed ornament.  This was more difficult than I imagined.  The reach on the punch was short so I couldn't center my punch and my punch was wider than my square as well.  Hmmmm.  The oval punch I used for my first luminary was easy as pie.  I folded two sqaures together and punched! The Ornament couldn't be punched sideways or it would be ... well, sideways. lol  To solve the problem I shortened the height and made my box sides wider, here is the finished product!  I went to the dollar store and bought the battery operated flickering tea light candles and voila, a beautiful look for your table or to give as a gift.

Here are the directions:
Real Red textured card stock cut 12 x 4 1/2
score at 1/4" , 3 1/4", 6 1/8" and 9"
Vellum card stock 1001856 cut 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
Scallop punch the top of your paper , I used the scallop edge punch 112091, you may prefer the eyelet border punch 113692
center your ornament punch 116794 in the center of your square, I punched two at once, and punch out your ornament design
Stamp your vellum card stock with your Delightful Decorations stamp 16517 using versamark ink102283
Cover your stamped area with gold embossing powder 109129 carefully tapping off any excess powder
Heat the ambossed area with your heat tool 100005 until the entire image is shiny.
Center your image in your punched area and secure with sticky strip 104294  ( I tried snail but the sticky strip holds much better )

How pretty is that?!

Happy Friday! 
It's girl's weekend at the beach :)  12 of us left Wednesday from our various locations and met at Ocean Isle Beach for the weekend.  The weather was beautiful until today but the drizzly and gray weather hasn't kept us from having a good time.  Some of us are stamping, some scrapbooking and I am doing both. The house is on the beachfront, you can see the dolphins swimming from the front porch.  Great view, great company.  Life is Good!

  I stopped playing long enough to let you know that there are new My Digital Studio downloads available.

 Today I would like to share a card made with the medallion stamp and the Sizzix pop-up Christmas tree die.  The medallion stamp is the most popular stamp and very versatile.  This card was created by Susan Peters and I must say the picture doesn't do it justice.  The medallion is embossed in silver with the tree popping up when the card is opened and folding when the card is closed.  You can't see the tree when the card is closed so what a surprise when you open the card and up pops a decorated tree!  The picture below is the tree mounted on scallop circles cut with the Sizzix Big Shot scallop circle die.  This is a cute gift or can be used as a table decoration. 

You can get the pop-up Christmas tree die or any item in the mini catalog for $10.00 by hosting a $250.00 workshop. You will also earn a free stamp set and additional   $15.00 in merchandise.

Hope to stamp with you soon!
