Christmas Card #15 Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

This card was made after looking at two different cards using this set on Pinterest by two different people.  I loved the idea of having snow in the backyard and the truck in the front, plus using the die as a mailbox.  I added the ‘door’ on the mailbox, which made me so tickled with myself!  LOL

 

I uses a LOT of blends, which are listed below.  If you would like the dimensions and particulars for this card here they are:

Here is another CASE’d card.  I got the idea from Deborah Smart.  You can go see her card here.   I didn’t do the black behind the deer, but that’s all I changed.  Funny thing is that I TRIED to change it up, but kept coming back to her design.  So here it is:

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:

Stamp sets: His Light, Bokeh Dots
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!

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!

It’s a Sloth!!

Hey Guys,

My family has a very funny story about Sloths.  Since this time I have always had a special place in my heart for Sloths.  If you want to hear the story, just send me a msg and I will tell you.  I don’t want to bore everyone!  HA!

I was inspired by a card on Pinterest by Melissa Davies, you can see the card here.  I changed up SOME of the card, but the general idea was hers!  Thanks Melissa!

As soon as I saw the Designer Paper Animal Expedition I HAD to get it only because of this stinkin’ cute Sloth!  I wish it was a stamp, but he’s pretty easy to cut out, so I’ll take what I can get!

I used the Leaf ribbon because not only does it look awesome, but it’s so easy to adhere to the back!!

The supplies for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be sent to my OnLine Store!

Painted Glass with Rose Glimmer Paper

Hey Guys,

This card is the Epitome of a Girly Card!!  I used the Petal Promenade Designer Paper, with the die from the Painted Glass bundle.  The butterfly is from the same stamp set!  I used a Fresh Fig ink pad with an aqua painter and the Petal Pink for the middle to color the butterfy.  Then I covered the whole thing with Wink of Stella!  This card is so much fun!

The base is Fresh Fig, next layer is Petal Pink, then black and finally the Designer Paper.  The banner is Petal pink edged with the Rose Glimmer!  HAD to add the sparkle!!

This is a very simple card, just pop out the die, stamp the sentiment and the butterfly.  Color the butterfly and layer  all the cardstock and you are done!  BUT, it is so pretty!!  You would think it took much longer.

I was inspired by Rene Daley, you can see her card here.

Painted Glass Clean and Simple card

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing with you a Clean and Simple (CAS) card.  I don’t do these very often, but I always ask myself why I don’t when I make things this pretty!

I used the Stained glass Bundle, which is a definite need if you haven’t bought it already!  The center of the image is punched out with the 2″ circle punch!  LOVE when I can use a punch!

Here is the card:

There is a Rhinestone in the center of the medallion that I colored with a Bermuda Bay Blend.  The black outside is from the die, cut twice.  It’s a half circle, but I put them together and hid the seam with the Banner in Petal Pink.  Then the Black Cording.  I also have more Rhinestones colored the same way around the card.  Polka Dot Embossing folder was used also.

Hope you like this as much as I do!!  I’ll be posting again soon!

Thank you for your support!
