This first card is for a monthly bella card kit swap i am in! I was supplied the paper and image! I love the DSP! no idea where to get it though! lol I used BSC208 for this one:)
This kit is for a monthly card kit swap too! Isn't the tilda the sweetest?? I left the corner blank so i could add a sentiment later! I find it easier to leave my cards blank, that way they could be used for any occasion, i just need to add it:)

Step 1- Clean your pringles cans! I rinse them out with hot water!
Step 3- Cut your DSP 9" X 9 1/2". This fits perfect around the tins!!
Step 4- Meet Shannon:) She helps me with all my big projects:) Put some sticky strip on the 2 sides that are 9". You can also put some on the middle for extra support!
Step 5- Wrap the paper around the can, try to line it up with the top or bottom so its even. Its takes couple tries to get it right:)
Step 7- We want to cover up the seem, so there is left over DSP right?? Look it fits exactly over it!! (i used the other side of it!)
Step 8- Now normally i would stamp, or deco with ribbon or something...but we had to make 30 of these so we keep them simple! I made ornaments from the Stampin' Up! star bright kit and attached them by the lid. I plan on filling them up with candy or something else as well!!
Also with the rest of the DSP you can make these neat ornaments!! Just cut your paper 1"X6", you will need 8 pieces of paper! Place your paper one on top of each other, each piece showing a different side (you can use as many different ones as you want, i just used 2!). Then punch a hole in the top and the bottom of the paper and place a brad in there to hold all the paper together. Then all you have to do is pull the pieces of paper apart and it makes a ball! Tie some ribbon or cord around the top and you have ornaments:)

This was the last card i made today. The last of the kits as well!! Just simple and cute! This bella is adorable!!
Well i guess that is it for today! My shopping trip to Buffalo went well...guess how much money i spent on stamping supplies? ...ZERO DOLLARS!!! crazy eh?? I don't think i have mentioned it but i saw on someones blog that they were on a stamping diet...well now i am!! I think i have more than enough stuff to stamp with for at least 6 months...yes i said 6 months!! The only thing i am allowing myself to buy is SU paper, and adhesive!! So far so good! I have one more order coming from Stamping Bella that i ordered in Nov....and then the mail will stop coming!!! :( sniff sniff!!
Ok i am off Thursday so i will try to get some more stamping done! I have to make some Christmas tins for work...25 of them actually...i will have to call my niece! lol
I already used a prima on one of my cards! the colours match SU colours!! woo hoo!!

Ok now i am really done, bowling in 20 mins!!
The next card is another Bella image i got from a bella swap (i only have one more pre-stamped now!) I am sad this is my last Daisyboardabella, but i had to use her up! This card is a little strange!!! lol You see it had the arrows in there already so i went with it. Put a peice of paper behind it and thought it would work...not too sure now. I tried my best to make it work though!
And this last card...ummmm i got this image in a swap also, i *think* its a Gina K stamp?? not too sure though! It is cute though! Kinda big so i did a tent topper card! I also ran out of Real Red paper scraps so i used DSP for the matting:)
