Pyramid card Tutorial

Santa Pyramid Cards

I was inspired by NWilliams6's Santa Candy Holders that she made over on Splitcoast Stampers!  They are adorable!  I am making some to take to a Holiday Shopping Sale tomorrow.  Since I love Pyramid cards- I decided to make it into a Pyramid Santa!
Check NWilliams gallery here-

Here are a few more shots of my Punch art work -

The beard is SU's ornament punch, the moustache is from SU's Bird punch-It was really easy to put Santa's face together!
Santa's hat is Spellbinder's Paisley Nestabilities!  That is also the die I used to make Santa's toy bag.

The other side!
It should be a fun day tomorrow with everyone shopping for Christmas!  It is hard to believe that Christmas is not that far away! 
UPDATE:  Check out Sharon's blog for instructions on  how to make the "Pyramid" of the Pyramid card. I do use a  3 - 4 inch squares to make my Pyramid- and of course, no ribbon.

Wicked easy!

Easter Baskets with a New look!

I made this style of basket for my Easter baskets.  But they make great baskets for other occasions as well.  Take a look at the baskets I made for Christmas & Halloween!  The directions for these basket can be found on Stamp TV!

Close up!

 I  used Spellbinder's beautiful Poinsetta die.  I just got this die and I really love it!  The ends of the basket have the JustRite stamps used with the Spellbinders die cut.  The center is a stamp I got from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I used Distress Ink to give it and aged look.  I made the handle using one of Martha Stewart's punches.

Same basket- different look!  I used JustRite stamps again for the side sentiment.  The bat is a Sizzix die.  Again, the handle is from an Edger punch from Martha Stewart.   I picked up the beading at a recent sale.  This style of basket is sooo easy and fun to make.  Now, I all have to do is add goodies!

Halloween Witch tutorial

I had fun making this tutorial for my Halloween Witch! I made a couple of boo boos though- One the die I used to make my two handle boxes is by Sizzix. The second boo boo was the ink I used to "age" my Witch boxes and the Witch's hat is not Gray ink but Silver ink. Lastly, it's not a butterfly punch used for the nose ...but a Dragonfly !! Let me know if you have any questions!

Here are a few more pictures of the finished boxes!
