Christmas Card #15 Black and White Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

I love when I design a card and it turns out great!  I get so worried when I am designing on my own, I ‘think’ it turns out good, but have to ask everyone I know what they think, just to be sure!

Here is the card:

I love how this looks like a photo with a tree on the side. I used the Colorful Seasons Die to get the scalloped edge, I cut both the white and the Silver Glimmer to go behind it.  In person, this is really pretty and shiny!  Basic Gray is on the inside to offset the Silver, it is a great look!  I love how stamping the house and tree in the ‘picture’ is an easy way to use this stamp set, and just cut out the tree and your card is just about ready!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Supplies:

Stamp set: Farmhouse Christmas, Star of Light, Winter Woods
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White 4” x 11”, Whisper White 3 ½” x 3 ¾”, 3” x 3 ½”, 3 ¼” x 3” (for black and white house),
Silver Glimmer 3 3/8” x 3 3/16”, 4” x1 ½”, Basic Gray 4” x 5 3/8”
Inks: Basic Gray, Shaded Spruce, Memento Black
Misc: Big Shot, Seasonal Layers thinlits, Dimensionals, Metallic Pearls, sponges, Wink of Stella

This is one of my favorites that I designed! I hope you like it too!!

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:

Supplies
Stamp sets:
Farmhouse Christmas Bundle, Merry Christmas to all
Cardstock: Poppy Parade 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scraps for bows, Basic Black 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”, Whisper White 5 ¼” x 4 (x2),
5 ¼” x 2 ¾” (trimmed for snow), 1 ¾” x 4 ½”, 5 ¼” x 4 for stamping house, tree, truck, Wood Textures DSP 3” x 1 ½”
Inks: Memento Black, Versamark, Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Blends: Poppy Parade combo, Light Mango Melody, Old Olive combo, Soft Suede combo, Black Lt, Smoky Slate combo
Misc: White EP, Embossing Buddy, Dimensionals, Foam Adhesive strips, Fine tip Glue pen, Big Shot, Wink of Stella

This card is layered, the snow in the back only go on the bottom half of card, and if you look the fence is popped away from the base of the card.

I hope you like this card as much as I do!  We made this in my Christmas card class at the beginning of October!  Everyone loved making it, and I look forward to my other classes.

Christmas Card #13 Still Night

Hey Guys!

The owl in Still Night is one of my favorites.  I love the dies in the bundle because not only does it cut out the owl & branch but it also cuts out pine boughs to make the branch look great!  The set has 4 dies to cut out the boughs so you don’t spend all your time cutting one at a time!

I changed up very little from this idea off Pinterest from Nicole

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”.

Tarnished Foil Technique

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I was last here!  Sorry, life got a bit busy.  I had my trip to Salt Lake City Utah for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, and WOW I had so much fun! I met up with my SU! Besties and we room together every time!

I came home and 4 days later we went to Vero Beach for a much needed break!  It was so nice to sit and read on the beach!!  I was under the umbrella and the only thing that would have totally made it better was to have a Beach Boy bring me some drinks!  hahaha

Now I am home and I jumped right back in to my ‘work’.  I put the apostrophes there because I have so much fun creating it is sometimes hard to remember that I get PAID!  Love my job, if you want to join my team, just let me know!

On to the Tarnished Foil technique, thanks to my Besties Carol and Hetty for telling me all about it!  I HAD to come home and try my hand at it!

Here are the cards I did on my YouTube video:

Aren’t they stunning?!!  This is a fun and easy technique and no two are alike!  I Love stacking my ribbons, can you see it?  I ‘colored’ my gold edged ribbon with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends so it would go with my project and stacked it with the copper ribbon!  Go check out my video for all the dimensions.

I hope if you live in the States you choose me as your demonstrator!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you one of my cards that I use for my videos!  Shop Now!

As always, the items used for this post are listed below, each picture will link you to my OnLine Store!  I DO have some SAB items for a sneak peek, can’t list them below, but the one I used is called Happy Wishes, and I KNOW you will want it as much as I did!

I’m back to my ‘work’, I am making my Christmas cards, I’ll share those with you next time!!

Technique Tuesday Triple Flap Fold Christmas Card

I love when a project comes together! Click here for a video to see the process It took to make this beauty!  The great thing about the video is that I tell you the dimensions and supplies!

I was spending time on YouTube the other day and found this great idea from Dawn, which you can see here.  I loved the idea, but didn’t have her Halloween stamps, even though I LOVE Halloween (need to have new ideas every year for scrapbooking!).  So, I DID have the Christmas stamps from Stampin’ Up! called Father Christmas (I used EVERY stamp!, WooHoo) and Nature Sings.  These Stamp sets are PERFECT for my idea!

When do you use every stamp from a stamp set on ONE project?  I did for this one!  Not sure WHY I am proud of this, but I am.  😉

Here is the project closed:

Partially open:

And now all the way open!:

Isn’t this pretty!?  What I love is other than the front where I colored, there isn’t anything else that needs that much attention!  I DID sponge all the Vanilla pieces but I pretty much sponge everything so this wasn’t a big deal to me.

When I showed this around, I got so many Ooooooh’s and Aaaaaaaah’s!  LOVE when that happens!  Now the question: Who do I send this to?

The next question is what will be my technique for NEXT Tuesday?! Any suggestions? I have a great idea, not sure if I will go with that idea or one YOU give me!

You can click on any of the supplies listed below to be taken to my OnLine Store!

I hope you like this technique, I would love to see a ‘story’ you would like to create using this Fancy Fold!

Until next time!
