Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

 

Wait What Cover

Isn't this adorable? A DOUBLE BOW using the Bow Builder Punch! A fun and quick way to spruce up your gift packaging!

DSCN9537w

 

Here's a video with some great tips for you: 

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog. 

 

This little cutie uses the FOIL FRENZY SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER and our CLEAR TINY TREAT BOXES - what a fun little gift!

  DSCN9530w2

I used a Sharpie Marker to color the CLEAR FACETED GEM to match my paper.

DSCN9533w

This bow has a GOLD FACETED GEM in the middle and I mounted it on a FOIL SNOWFLAKE.

DSCN9534w

I found this box in my studio - it's just a kraft colored jewelry box that I decorated up with the CHRISTMAS QUILT DESIGNER SERIES PAPER. 

DSCN9539w

 The gift bag below uses our STRIPED GIFT BAGS and a GOLD BINDER CLIP - so fancy looking!

Joke
 

This Doctor knows how to solve a problem!

A man goes to the Doctor, worried about his wife’s temper.

The Doctor asks: “What’s the problem?

The man says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It scares me.”

The Doctor says: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your wife is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until she either leaves the room or calms down.”

Two weeks later the man comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

The man says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my wife started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and she calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”

The Doctor says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick”.

Santa's Little Elves Design Team - Week 6

01

On Week 5 of the Santa's Little Elves Design Team projects we have are creating with a cute little bundle called TAGS & TRIMMINGS that makes an adorable stocking gift card holder! There's more too - you can make pillow boxes and baby & holiday cards. You can make up a bunch of these stockings to add to your Christmas tree or decorate your presents with a stock instead of a bow! These make adorable gifts for co-workers for Secret Santa presents too!

01111

I have a video to show you some great tips and I share another stocking and a card I made in it too:

If the video doesn't play click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Here's the back of the stocking - the tab on the die adheres to the stocking to keep the bottom closed.

Cutting & Scoring: 

  • Elegant Eggplant Half-sheet for die cutting
  • Champagne Scrap for die cutting
  • Very Vanilla Scraps for die cutting

It's a wonderful way to share your love of paper crafts with a gift that lasts all year long! I love making these!!! If you follow Splitcoastampers.com you might have already enjoyed this project - I was one of the guest tutorials in November.

The BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET bundle is filled with so many images - I can't hardly wait to make more cards with this beauty. The back has a white layer so you can write a thoughtful message that AGAIN will be fondly remembered all year long!

Joke
 

A doctor goes out and buys the fastest and flashiest car he can find, a brand new Ferrari 488, costing him $500,000.

He takes it out for a spin and stops at a red light. An old man on a moped, looking about 80 years old, pulls up next to him. The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks, “What kind of car ya got there, sonny?”

The doctor grins and replies, “A brand new Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million dollars!”

“That’s a lot of money,” says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?”

“Because this car can do up to 225 miles an hour!” states the doctor proudly.

The old moped driver asks, “Mind if I take a look inside?”

“No problem,” replies the doctor.

So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around.

Then, sitting back on his moped, the old man says, “That’s a pretty nice car all right, but I’ll stick with my moped!”

Just then the light changes, so the doctor decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds, the speedometer reads 150 mph.

Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror – what it could be… and suddenly…

WHHHOOOOOOSSSSSHHH!

Something whips by him, going much faster!

“What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?” the doctor asks himself.

He floors the accelerator and takes the Ferrari up to 175 mph. Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it’s the old man on the moped!

Amazed that the moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas and passes the moped at 200 mph.

WHHHOOOOOOSSSSSHHH!

He’s feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN! Astounded by the speed of his old geezer, he floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 225 mph.

Not ten seconds later, he sees the moped bearing down on him again!

The Ferrari is flat out, and there’s nothing he can do!

Suddenly, the moped plows into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end. The doctor stops, jumps out and, unbelievably, the old man is still alive!

He runs up to the bruised old man and says, “Oh my gosh! Is there anything I can do for you?”

The old man whispers, “Well son, you can unhook my suspenders from your side mirror.”

Download Christmas Lolly

22195515_10213382043482201_4241067962821955235_n

  • STAMPS – Peace this Christmas (Clear Mount – 141570 OR Wood Mount - 141567)
  • PAPER – Real Red (102482), Emerald Envy (141415), Whisper White (100730), Silver Glimmer (135314)
  • INK – Basic Black Archival (140931)
  • OTHER – Simply Scored Board (122334), Big Shot (143263), Oval Layering Framelits (141706), Fast Fuse (129026), Foil Snowflakes (144642), 1 ¾” circle punch (119850), Mini Tinsel Trim Combo (144636), Silicone Craft Sheet (127853), Bamboo Skewer, Hot Glue Gun

22228402_10213382043442200_1783013528302952862_n

 

 

Cutting & Scoring: 

  • Real Red – 4” x 11”, and (2) 1 ¾” circles
  • Emerald Envy – 3” x 11”, and (2) 1 ¾” circles
  • Whisper White – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Silver Glimmer – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Red & Silver Tinsel – 28” each color

 

Instructions - I encourge you to download the instruction sheet above to view a few step-by-step photos that aren't shown here:

  • Stamp “Peace, Love & Joy” in Basic Black ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  Die cut with a 2 ¾” long oval framelit (inside measurement).
  • Die cut the next size up scallop oval framelit from the Silver Glimmer paper.  Adhere together with Fast Fuse.
  • Fold a Silver Foil Snowflake in half on the longest point; repeat on each long point of the snowflake.  This will give the snowflake dimension.
  • Heat up glue gun.  Allow it to rest on the Silicone Craft Sheet in case it drips.
  • Using the Simply Scored board, score the Real Red cardstock at 1”, 2”, 3” and so on, scoring on each 1-inch mark.  Flip the cardstock over and score on the ½-inch marks, ½”, 1 ½”, 2 ½”, 3 ½” and so on.  Cut in half to 2” x 11”.  Fold each piece accordion style. 
  •   Repeat the scoring on the Emerald Envy cardstock and cut to 1½” x 11”. 
  • Place Fast Fuse on one end and adhere together to create a long strip. 
  • Place Fast Fuse on another end and adhere them together to create a circle. 
  • Place the Red accordion circle on the Silicone Craft sheet.  Gently squish the lolly down to form it, pulling it together towards the center.  Place hot glue in the center hole, keeping your hand on it as it cools.  Don’t let go as you add a 1-inch diameter circle of hot glue on top of the lolly’s center and adhere a red circle punch. It will be hot.  I recommend using a clear block to set on top of it.  It only takes about 30 seconds for the glue to cool off enough that you can let go. 
  • Flip the lolly over and add a strip of hot glue inside a fold and push the pointed end of the bamboo skewer to the center.  Hot glue the remaining red circle punch.  Set aside.
  • Repeat this process with the Emerald Envy, adding a circle punch on both sides.
  • Hot Glue the Emerald Envy to the center of the Real Red (the bamboo skewer should be on the back).
  • Hot Glue the stamped focal image to the Emerald Envy circle on the top of the lolly.
  • Tie tinsel in a bow onto the skewer, just below the lolly.
  • Add your lolly to dress up a holiday centerpiece, candy bowl, poinsettia, etc.  The bamboo skewer can be cut down as needed.  If the ends of the skewer are jagged or sharp, use a nail file to smooth it out.
  • You can also omit the bamboo skewer and use the lolly as an alternative to a bow on a gift box.
