I followed my sister Cammie’s inchie card to use scraps on my table to create a cute – stamp free Halloween inchie card. The broom is created using the Owl punch and the score-pal to create the broom bristles. Witches hat is from none other than the pennant punch and her face it done with circle punches and the wordwindow for her nose. The wart is a brad and her half smile was free hand cut. Finished with the bat punch and a rhinestone.

Inchie cards are one of Cammie’s favorite design layouts. She loves them because it enables her to use the scraps from her worksurface and then she packs a WoW factor with the floral spread. She used the raining flower Stamp set #122767 then hand cut, and used the sueding technique (crumble and distress to pull away the layers of SU cardstock) and then layered across the card front. Nice thing about this card she was able to create many cards in one setting. What a great thank-you card for her customers that ordered from her in Sept.
I love fall and nothing says fall like a scarecrow. I made these adorable scarecrow boxes and filled them with bags of candy corn, another fall classic, for a recent outing with my girl friends. Then I even made a special one for my haircutter that had a fabric scarf. Love him! He was created using the fancy favor box and the square lattice embossing folder for his textured face. I used various punches to create his face and a brown paper bag for his shaggy hair.
This Dasher stamp from the SU Idea Book and Catalog #116816 sells for $8.95 and is one of my favorite Christmas stamps. Both Cammie and I have owned it since it came out a few years ago and neither of us have ever inked him up to make a card. So we have challenged ourselves and our other sister Blair to dust it off and make cards using it. We also want to extend the challenge to our blog viewers to play along. Email me your completed cards by Oct 27th and they will be posted sometime in November. If you would like to play along and don’t have the stamp you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Cammies online site :http://cameronclement.stampinup.net to place your online order. Remember to try and use mostly all SU products for challenges that will be posted on the 3sisters2stamp blog. If you play we may make it worth your while!
It is the 25th of the month and as promised we post Christmas cards that we designed but also from some of our followers. This month Yvonne Crook, an avid SU fan and sistah friend of 3 sisters to stamp is our featured follower for today’s post. Yvonne was inspired by all the pennant posts that she decided to make a wreath and thread gingham ribbon through it and tied into a bow. Nice and simple design that could easily be created in mass to all those on your Christmas card list.
If you did not see Cammies beautiful Christmas cards from yesterdays post be sure to check it out. Cammie did a great job with today’s Christmas card challenge and also has a wreath as the focal elelment. The northern flurry embossing folder serves as a great background. Check out the fence posts made from the key tag punch. For my card, I decided to go the simple route use MDS to create a hybrid Christmas card. My Digital Studio, MDS is a great way to create cards in mass and sent them to SU printing service. When you get them back, just add a few embellishments and you have a wonderful card. Hope you enjoyed these Christmas cards and are inspired to start creating your own Christmas cards….. BTW, Christmas is just 90 days away! Tomorrow I will be announcing another challenge using a StampinUp stamp.
Bring on the holidays with the Perfect Pennant Die, Embossing Folder, Craft ink and a Brayer. Cammie went to town and brayered her Christmas cards for my pennant workshop. What a sweet sister I have to contribute cards all the way from Tulsa OK for my workshop in Ohio. That is truly sharing what you love! Even better, the cards came ready to assemble no work required. So we got to OOH and Ahh over her fabulous cards while we applied the adhesive and assembled the cards. The wreath card was by far the crowd favorite!
For each card, the base was done by rolling craft ink onto the specific embossing folder and then running thru the bigshot. Wow! Same technique different folder and oh so different. These cards bring an end to the pennant on parade workshop. Stay tuned tomorrow – its the 25th and as promised we have the results of the Christmas card challenge.
Before I post Cammie’s cards for the pennant on parade workshop, I thought I would add a very creative card that Cammie came up with using scraps on from her table. This little angel is oh so sweet and quite easy to re-create. Tomorrow, I will wrap up the pennant workshop by posting all 3 of Cammies very creative cards using a technique that will knock your socks off.
One of my customers loves cheez-its and it has become a tradition to see how I can decorate the cheez-it box. This was a very late night project so it had to be quick but in theme. So I created a belly band complete with Rudoph from the pennant punch. Look closely because his antlers are tangled up with Christmas lights (SHHH it is a non-SU product) but is a very cute touch if I say so myself! Stay tuned for a pennant surprise before I begin to post Cammie’s 3 very unique pennant cards.
