HAVE A SUNSHINEY DAY!

This is a card my demo friend, Keri, shared at our last demo get together.  Very fitting today, as the sun is shining and it is snowing big flakes and I am inside with great friends stamping.  Our hostess is doing all the cooking and serving us and cleaning up after us.   Being spoiled and loving it!

ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD FOR CHOCOLATE BAR!

Lots of you have emailed me and requested the pattern for this extra-large candy bar box.
I made this box using the Envelope Punch Board, and it was super easy, since another very kind and talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Janet Wakeland, prepared an easy-to-follow video with step-by-step directions and measurements for me.  I am taking the easy way on this one, and am not going to re-invent the wheel.   I enjoyed Janet's video so much, I am just going to say:   SEE JANET'S VIDEO HERE!

FOR BIG CHOCOLATE FANS!

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
I have some real chocolate lovers on my holiday gift list this year, so I decided a really big candy bar was the answer.  I, of course, had to dress it all up fancy so that I did not eat it before the holidays arrived.  For this candy bar, because it is so much bigger than a regular candy bar, I wrapped it in a box (as opposed to the envelope I made for the regular-sized candy bar).  I made the box with my Envelope Punch Board.  I am having so much fun with that awesome tool!  I used the Season of Style Designer Series Paper and made my bow with the oval punches.  I added the "holiday fudge" poem I found with the help of Google.

ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD FOR YOUR CHOCOLATE BAR!

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
This is a little project my demonstrator friend, Nancy, shared with us at our last demonstrator get together.  She used the Season of Style Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog and the Envelope Punch Board.  Then she added a belly band and put a bow made from oval punches on the belly band.  I love chocolate, and try not to eat it since my heart surgery AND I am happy to say that when the candy gets all dressed up, I am way less likely to eat it!

Isn't this the cutest little holder for candy canes?  It is made with the Envelope Punch Board.
My friend Denise was over, and we were playing with the Envelope Punch Board making cute little goodies.  I love the way this one turned out!  The cute little candy canes were purchased at Walgreens.

SIX-SIDED SAMPLER PRODUCT CLASS!

The first-ever Rubber Room Product Party is happening November 26th, 2013 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Rubber Room.  The Product Party is only $5, and this month we will be making all four of these cards!

For this card we use the Hexagon Punch to create the "tag look".  The Love and Sympathy Stamp Set is where the image and sentiment are from.  We also used the Very Vintage Designer Buttons, and the Modern Label Punch to set the button on.  From the Holiday  Mini Catalog, we used the Pretty Print Textured Embossing Folder for the Big Shot and some of the 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon for the button bow.

This card uses the Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set and the Hexagon Punch, as well as the 1/8" Silver Ribbon (available in the Holiday Mini Catalog) and the Delicate Designs Textured Embossing Folder for the Big Shot.  The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.

For this lovely card we again used the Hexagon Punch and the Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set, along with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder for the Big Shot and the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  You can't see it too well in the photo, but there are Rhinestone Jewels for the butterfly bodies.  The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.

For this card we used the Hexagon Punch to make the little "purse".  The "clasp" on the purse is a Rhinestone Jewel colored with a red Sharpie marker.  The sentiment is from the Yippe-Skippee! Stamp Set.

I want to thank Mary Fish, Fiona Whitten, Julie Kettlewell and Michele Reynolds for their creative inspiration in making these cards.  Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are wonderful people, and they freely share ideas, tips and inspiration on a "Demonstrator Only" website, which I love to visit!

NOVEMBER 7th AT MIDNIGHT IS THE LAST DAY TO RSVP FOR THE PRODUCT PARTY! 
This early RSVP date ensures there will be enough time to order and receive the product before the party.

A Rubber Room Product Party is a party where you bring along the featured product, and I will share with you different things to do with the product.  This month the product you will need to bring along is the Six-Sided Sampler Bundle (the Stamp Set and the coordinating punch).  There will be lots and lots of samples on display to inspire you (and you may want to bring your camera along); and there will be 3-4 hands-on projects.  I will provide all of the materials you need to make the hands-on projects, as well as coffee and water.  You just need to RSVP and bring the featured product with you to the party.
