........on my new blog that is. I have been doing a lot of other crafty stuff lately and it just didn't fit in with this blog's theme. So I've made a new blog to feature all the fun stuff i'm working on. It's a little bare right now but i'm sure I'll get it packed with fun stuff that will hopefully spark your creativity on many levels. I'm working out the details of getting a website set up to sell some of my creations, but for the time being Silver Luna Designs will be custom orders via the new blog. Come join me over at Silver Luna Designs Crafty stuff soon to come. :)

- Glossy Cardstock
- 2 re-inkers that compliment each other (I used Twilight and Crystal Blue)
- 1 metallic re-inker ( I used Platinum Planet)
- Isopropyl alcohol (I used 99% variety)
- Gloves if you don't like alcohol getting on your hands
- Cotton Balls
Once your images are dry, take a cotton ball....lightly wet it with alcohol. Then apply some drops of the re-inkers to the cotton ball. Sorry for the blurry cotton ball apparently my camera didn't know I was doing a tutorial and the cotton ball was the center of focus not my hand.
This is the final product using my custom made patterned paper. I stamped the elf using Staz-on, then layered it on a piece of scalloped CS. I stamped the "snowflakes" and the little snowflake in White Daisy pigment ink. I tied a little white hemp around the card and called it good. I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and I would love to see projects that you come up with.

I did however get some of my other projects finished which I suppose is a good thing. I finished these slippers for one of my daughters for our homemade Christmas this year. I didn't use a pattern, just figured it out as I went along. I wanted the heel to be nice and fitted and the other patterns i've seen have a straight back heel. I'm pleased with how they turned out, and I know she will just love them. She never wears socks so I'm hoping she will at least keep these on her feet. :) *fingers crossed*
I hope you're having a good holiday.

I joined an online class called UStamp It was started up by two Stampin Up consultants. I have to say that I've been loving the projects. This is one of the bonus projects done by A lady over in the UK. It's so easy that I just had to make some right away.
I asked my hubby if it was too early to start putting up Christmas decorations. :) He told me "what ever makes you happy". Such a good husband. So I hung them over the table. lol
If you wanna check out the link for UStamp above you totally should. I've been very pleased with the projects and I think it was well worth the $25. If you decide to join up please mention that I referred you, and find me to add me to your friends list. :)

I cut a piece of cardstock 4 3/4 square and applied the labels to the cardstock and slid it in the side with the tabs. That way if my case gets broken for some reason I can just slide it out and put it in a new case. I also applied the little label for SU stamps on the outside binding that way it's easy to see which stamps they are.
Here is a look at the stamps inside the case. As you can see they cling right to the plastic. I think it's a great way to store the stamps and doesn't take up a lot of room like they would do if I had them mounted on the blocks.
What are you going to do with all the wooden blocks you have leftover???? Well I'm working on that one, and when I figure something out I will do a post up on it. I'm sure there are tons of things I could do with them. Got any ideas?

The delicious pies, I also made my husband's favorite....raspberry apple crisp. Yum!
The turkey, my dh bought me a new roasting pan to cook him a turkey in lol.
My girls pullin the wish bone to see who gets to make a wish.
This is the little project I did, I bought these ornamental pumpkins for like a $1 each. I stamped on them using Staz-On. If you plan to try this let me warn you how SLIPPERY Staz-On is. Oh boy I had no idea what I had gotten myself into lol. I think I had to stamp each letter at least twice to get a semi decent looking image. The grooves in the pumpkin weren't very helpful either hehe. Anyways, it can be done, and I was pleased with how they turned out in the end. I did get a "you are just too creative" out of my sister so it was all worth it. :)
