Christmas card #7 Spirited Snowmen

Hey Guys!,

I am having so much fun making Christmas Cards for my local girls.  The class is in October, and we spend all day eating, stamping and having fun!  Everyone brings a dish to share, I have everything cut and ready for everyone to stamp and use the Big Shot.  16 cards are what all attendees take home with them!  3 each of 5 designs and 1 Special card.  Stampin’ Up! has the BEST Christmas stamps!

Here is the card I am sharing today:

Isn’t this snowman the cutest!?   This card is easy but still a lot of fun to make!  I stamped the snowman on white, then put a mask of the snowman on top of him so I could sponge Pool Party behind the snowman and not get him blue.  I then colored him with Blends.

All the supplies used on this card are listed below, just click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  I would love to be your SU! Demonstrator!

It’s Christmas Card Time! Card #1

Hey Guys!

I’ve been getting ready for my Christmas card class that’s next month!  I plan on doing 3 Classes with 6 cards each class.  That is A LOT of planning! Each person will make 3 of each of the 5 cards and 1 special card!  That’s 16 cards that everyone makes at each class!

The New Holiday Catalog is here from Stampin’ Up! and I’ve been having fun using all my new goodies!  Are you ready to start seeing the 1st of my 6 cards?!

Here is card #1:

This was VERY fun to make! I used the New stamp set His Light on top of the Bokeh Stamp set, but this isn’t the bokeh it is the star one in the same stamp set.   I stamped the Bokeh ‘star’ stamp in Night of Navy, then stamped ‘Rejoice’ in Memento Black.  This is SUCH a pretty card in person!  Here is the inside:

I love that I can make a card that really tells the true meaning of Christmas!

Here are the Particulars:

Card stock:
Night of Navy 5 ½” x 8 ½”,3 1/8” x 4 1/8”, Black 4 ¼” x 3 ¼”, White 5 ¼” x 4 (x2), 4” x 2 7/8”.

My Favorite ‘Holiday’ Halloween!

Hey Guys!

I say I love Halloween, but what do I love about it?  I love making scrapbook pages!  That’s it!  Well, I love the candy too.  heehee

Instead of making a page (I’ll do that too, I’m sure), I decided to make a card.  This was so much fun!!  If you want to watch me make it, go here to see my video!

I’m so happy that SU! has Blends (Alcohol Markers) in black now!  It sure makes coloring things easier.   This little witch is so cute, of course she is a good one!  Her kitty is too cute, love the expression.

I wanted to have a card the opens a little differently.  I die cut the sentiment tags using a die from Still Night stamp set.  The one in Gorgeous Grape is the size of the die.  I put the die through twice for the Granny Apple Green and Whisper White, to make it smaller. If you put the die over the long one, line it up so the middle is along the lines of the die, you can cut it as small as you want.  It gives it a very nice edge.  Underneath the Sentiment attaching to the other side is a small piece of Dual Lock.  It works like Velcro, but MUCH better for paper since it won’t pull too hard, it snaps into place.  Check out my video to see how it works!

The inside is super clean:

Don’t these colors go well together?  I hope you like my Halloween card!  I had a blast making it!

A NON Christmas Card using Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

I am so excited that as a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!, that I get to purchase NEW items a month before they are available to the public!  I wanted to use them right away BUT didn’t necessarily want to do Christmas.  So, my dilemma……….how do I use these obvious Christmas sets and NOT have it be Christmas.

I got out the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, decided to use the tree  AND the incredible fence!!  Did you see the fence!!??  I stamped the tree on Soft Suede using Early Espresso ink. This stamp set better stick around because I can use that fence for a lot of things!  Follow this link to see my video.

Isn’t it the cutest!!??  Not sure if you can see the Glitter snow in front of the fence, but in person it is very shiny and sparkly!  The tree has snow in all its crannies.  I used the Fine-Tip Glue pen to go over the white (used the chalk marker) and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the wet glue.  I forgot how much I LOVE Dazzling Diamonds!  I will be getting that out a lot more.

I stamped the ‘Love You’ from the Enjoy Life stamp set using Versamark and white embossing powder.

I layered these onto a piece of Early Espresso, but before I layered these onto white I wrapped some Burlap Ribbon around and adhered a True Gentleman button in the middle.  If you look closely you can see a Rhinestone that I colored with the Bronze Blend to go into the middle of the button (I HATE threading linen thread through those tiny holes!).  The final layer is Soft Suede to tie in all the colors.

I’m planning on doing this card in a class this month.  Hope they like it as much as I do!

Below are all the supplies I used for this card.  Click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Thanks for stopping by!  Check back in!  I’m adding all my cards that I do for my classes to this blog!

Rooted in Nature Masculine card

Hey Guys!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE checkered paper!  Well, the great news is that Stampin’ Up! has come out with an awesome stamp that lets you have a checkered pattern on any cardstock in any color!

I used Soft Suede cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check in Black.  It came out so nice!!  I stamped the Big Oak tree from Rooted in Nature and die cut it (thank God, no more fussy cutting!), put it on a square piece of Black and it really popped.  Once I put it on the Checkered pattern I was in love!  I used the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the NEW 2018 Holiday Catalog.  It was the perfect touch!  Instead of doing what I normally do, I placed the ribbon over the square, because it looked great with the tree ‘sitting’ on it!  I hope you like it!

I’m teaching a class on the 10th at our local Senior Center, this will be one of the cards we will be making!

I have so much fun rubber stamping.  When I was a young adult my sister started painting on porcelain making dolls and pottery.  I was so impressed with her artistic ability.  I thought well God gave her a gift, I am NOT artistic!  Then I started stamping, at first I copied everything, then slowly started changing things up.  I am so happy to tell you, I AM artistic!  WOOHOO! I joined Stampin’ Up! over 15 years ago, and can’t see my life NOT doing this.  If you would like to join my team, I would love to help you be artistic too!
