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!

Still Night NEW Stamp set in Holiday Catalog

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you an easy card that you can make if you are in a hurry.  This can be for a man or woman!  Those type of cards are hard to come by!  I love the new Owl in the stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Still Night.  The branch can be used different ways and the owl can look different depending on how you color it.

I stamped the Buffalo Check stamp (also from SU!) onto Crumb cake using Early Espresso ink. Sponged the edges to make it look even more ‘old’.  I stamped the owl on a scrap of Vanilla and colored it using the Soft Suede/Crumb Cake Blends.  This stamp is EASY to color!  I used the Die that matches the owl, put Dimensionals on the back and he is ready to put on my card!  I die cut the branch from Soft Suede cardstock laid it over a Very Vanilla oval die cut with Stitched Framelits.  I sponged the edges of the oval with Soft Suede and used the Early Espresso marker to add the stitched look.

I hope you like my easy card!  I would love to hear what you think.

Christmas in July Card # 3

Hey Guys,

My class went really well for my Christmas in July!  We made 5 designs where we made 3 of each design, and then made one of another, so my guests got to make 16 Christmas cards!  We’ll be having  2 – 3 more of these classes but we will use different stamp sets!  I love these classes and it also gets all my cards ready for Christmas!  I don’t have to worry if I already sent a certain card to a family member/loved one because I ALWAYS make new Cards!

Here is the front of this one:

and the inside:

This was a fun one to make!  The white snowflakes are stamped onto the Night of Navy using Versamark and white embossing powder.  What a great way to make your own Designer Paper!

I colored my Rhinetones with my Night of Navy dark Blend!  I also added Wink of Stella underneath the trees.

Hope you like it!

Elegant any occasion card

Hey Guys!

Today I bring you a handmade card that I just LOVE!  It uses the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called  Painted Harvest.

This elegant card has sparkle and dimension.  When I show this to people in person, they just say WOW!  Love when that happens.

Here is the inside:

A simple card with Maximum effect.  I used the Metallic Edge Ribbon to pleat around the sentiment to add to the effect.

Dimensions:

Blushing Bride 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
Silver Slimmer paper 5 1/4″ x 4″
Flirty Flamingo 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside), 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front)
Very Vanilla 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ (front), 5″ x 3 3/4″ (inside)

I rounded the corners on the two smallest layers on the front to add dimension.

I would appreciate it so much if you would choose me as your demonstrator if you live in the US!  Click on any picture below to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Sneak Peek Rooted in Nature

Hey Guys!

While at OnStage, an event that demonstrators attend to learn and get product early, I saw a card that made me make this card.  I don’t know about you, but if I get an idea in my head it is very hard to wait to try and make it!  I have a class that is at the Senior Center here in Kernersville that I bring elegant cards for the participants to make, this is one of the cards that we will be making soon.

I used the background stamp set Hardwood from SU!  I stamped it with Versamark and then poured copper Embossing powder on it and heat set to make this dynamic background!  Very easy (and still fun to do even after 17 years…….I LOVE to watch the magic of embossing!) yet this is a Stunner!  The tree is from the NEW catalog from Stampin’ Up! called Rooted in Nature, that will be coming out in June 2018.

I got this set FOR FREE while at On Stage along with 4 other stamp sets!  If you want a job where you get freebies, get to play every day and meet FANTASTIC people, join my team and become a Demonstrator!

I  colored the Rhinestones using the Bronze Blends so it would all coordinate!  THAT is the reason I decided to join SU!, I don’t have to guess which colors coordinate!  Plus, I got the discount!  hahahaha

Card #5 – Christmas Cards

We’re onto card # 5, if you missed card #4 you can see it here!

Card #5 is another easy Christmas card, but it brings memories of my Childhood!  I loved watching Rudolph and this is what I think he looks like all grown up!  Of course it’s a Cartoon, but sometimes my mind likes to revisit!

Here it is!

I colored his nose by using Stampin’ Up!’s Blends in Cherry Cobbler on a Rhinestone!  Really makes it look as if he is lighting the way!

The Stamp set Merry Patterns is no longer available to buy, it was a special by SU! but my hope is that you might have it!

Christmas in July card #2 Plus Blog Candy

I love getting a jump on things!  This month I am planning on getting a jump on Christmas Cards!  I have a class at the end of the month where we will be making 16 cards at one time!  3 each of 5 designs!  I have already shown you Two of my cards:

      

The First one uses the Embossing paste and you can find the details here.   The Second one you can find here.

The Third Christmas card (out of 6) is straight out of the catalog!  I don’t know what you guys think about the new Catalog, but I LOVE the card ideas in there!  Stampin’ Up! has stepped up most of the ideas and I love them so much I have copied them…….or as a lot of Stampers call it (CASE…..Copy, And, Share, Everything).  It’s great when you are in a bind for an idea and there it is!

Here is the card I’m sharing today!

You can find this design on page 114 in the Catalog!   Another antiquey card!  I colored the berries on the bottom, so it’s TECHNICALLY not a total CASE but I pretty much copied everything else.  Do you like it?

Inside Pic:

Out of my 6 cards, most are straightforward and very simple, but others are a ‘little’ harder.  This one has some masking (I put the stamped image that was cut out of post it over the Santa to sponge around him, so I could get it darker around the edges than i wanted him) I then sponged again, to make sure and get parts of him sponged so it looks old.  This card is something anyone could do, with some guidance.  I HAVE  to have some easier cards so we can make them in bulk, but also have some stepped up cards so we, as stampers, are happy!

Details for this card: ie measurements:

*************

Card stock:
Soft Suede 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored in half at 4 1/4″
Very Vanilla 4 x 4 3/4″ torn on the 4″ side (once torn it will be approximately 3 5/8″)  and 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ (for the part the Santa is stamped on), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside

Accessories:
Linen Thread wrapped around 2 x
Colored pencils, I used real red, but made it as dark as I could.

The rest of the supplies will be in pictures below, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!

Christmas in July!!

Here is the start of my Christmas cards that I will be making this year!  If you receive cards from me and want to be surprised, don’t go any further!!  LOL

I am doing a class where we will make 3 each of FIVE Christmas cards, and if you prepay you get to make an extra Bonus card!  I’m hoping to get a headstart on my Christmas cards this year, how about you?!

I am going to show you today ONE of my 6 cards so far…….make sure you check back in so you can see the others!

Here is the first one:

I love cards that are weathered and antiquey……..I know that is NOT a word, but that’s the only one that came to mind!  LOL

I stamped the Music Notes on the Vanilla piece with Sahara Sand, but stamped off first so it wasn’t so dark.  I then tore the cardstock in carefully planned areas, and made it look old.  LOVE doing this, don’t you?  This card was really simple except that the ageing did tak a little time, but not as much as you would think.  I stamped the Reindeer? using Early Espresso ink, didn’t color him in at all, and I think he looks great!  I wanted some of my cards to be a little simpler since I will be making these in bulk.  I cut him out using the Stitched Framelits and then cut a mat using the Circle framelits using the scallop, cutting this out with Cherry Cobbler.  I used my Early Espresso marker to make the stitched edge look stitched!

For the Banner I used the Bunch of Banners thinlits.  Did you know that this banner thinlit cuts out BOTH the sentiment AND the border?  I hadn’t used this one yet, and was surprised that it did that, so I was able to frame the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler!

I added Linen Thread behind the Reindeer, popped up the sentiment with Dimensionals and I was done!   Easy Peasy!

Here is what the inside looks like:

Isn’t it pretty?

Below is a pictorial list of what I used to make this card, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase anything from me online I will send you a handmade card!

Want some Blog Candy?  I have taken a few days off since giving away my last one, so I guess it’s time!!

I LOVE embossing folders and I also love Bakers Twine!  This Bakers Twine is Gray, my FAVORITE color!  Is Gray a color?

You can get this mailed directly to you if you win the drawing that I will be having in a few weeks on July 29th.  How can you win this?  Easy!  Just leave me comments here on my blog, OR on any of my Social Media places……..Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.  ALL comments count, no matter which posts you comment on!  You can spend a good amount of time visiting my older posts and commenting and they count!!  Not only will you be getting good ideas for you projects, but you will be put in my drawing each and every time you comment!  Pretty easy wouldn’t you say?

I’m off, dinner is almost ready!!  I’m very lucky, I have a husband who likes to cook and I don’t have to!!  WooHoo!
