Beary Merry Christmas card

Hello and welcome to today's post. I hope the weekend has been good and you're ready for a little more Christmas inspiration. This one is clean and simple with a little dry embossing, stamping and sponging the edges. I really had a good time making this one so take a look below and let me know what you think.



Supplies:
.

Additional supplies: ATG, Scotch 3M foam tape, clear blocks.

  1. Create a card base from Thick Whisper White card stock to measure 5 ½” x 8 ½”and score at 4 ¼”.
  2. Run the front of the card base through the Quilt Top embossing folder using the Big Shot machine.
  3. Using a paper trimmer, cut a 3” x 4” panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut a slightly smaller piece of DSP. Sponge the edges of the DSP with Soft Suede ink and a sponge. Adhere the two panels together and then adhere to the center of the card front.
  4. On a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock stamp the bear with Crumb Cake ink and the eyes, nose and mouth using the Soft Suede ink. Next stamp the ears in the same Soft Suede ink and attach to the back of the bear head. Stamp out the bowtie using Cherry Cobbler ink and adhere to the bear. Pop the bear up on foam tape and adhere to the card front.
  5. On another scrap of Whisper White card stock, stamp the sentiment using Garden Green ink. Sponge the edges with Soft Suede ink and pop up with foam tape and adhere under the bear.

Merry Christmas

Hello and welcome to another Christmas card I have created. I love the blue with the red and inking the background makes the images pop off the page. I, of course, needed some bling on the card so sequins are sprinkled around along with the gold embossed image. Take a look at the project below and let me know that you think.



Supplies:
.

Additional supplies: Fun Foam, ATG, heat tool, powder bag, water.
  1. Create a card base from Real Red card stock to measure 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.
  2. Cut a 4” x 5 ¼” of the DSP and then sponge on the Tempting Turquoise ink. Rub the excess ink from the images, let dry and then sprinkle with water and dab up with a paper towel. Adhere the panel to a slightly smaller sheet of Fun Foam and then wrap the panel with a piece of ribbon. Tie a bow and using a mini glue dot place it to the center of the ribbon wrap. Adhere the whole panel to the card base.
  3. Die cut a scalloped circle from Real Red card stock and then die-cut a plain circle from Whisper White card stock and ink the edges with Tempting Turquoise ink. Stamp the candle image using Versa Mark ink and then color in the image with markers. Next, adhere the circles together using favorite adhesive and pop up the focal panel with Fun Foam and attach to the center of the card front..
  4. On a scrap of Whisper White card stock stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment using Real Red ink and then cut into separate strips and using favorite adhesive place on the left of the candle image.
  5. Sprinkle gold sequins around the card.

Christmas Blessings card


Hello and welcome to today's post where I will be sharing a Christmas card I made for World Card Making Day. I used some products from the Stampin' Up annual catalog along with the Holiday catalog. I used a 2-step stamp set to create the pine cones and a gold foil snowflake. This card was pretty simple to make and minimal supplies needed. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Boo Card

Hello and welcome to today's post. I am getting in the Halloween spirit with a new Shaker card. This is the first one I have created and I'm definitely going to have to try this again. The panel is stamped with the smaller images from the stamp set and then colored in with Stampin' markers. The frame was created with 2 Sizzix stitched rectangle dies and some Mylar for the sequin cover. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.




After shaking it up!

Supplies:

Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, Sizzix stitched rectangle dies, Mylar sheet, seed beads
  1.  Create a card base from Basic Black card stock to measures 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.
  2. Cut a Thick Whisper White panel to measure 4” x 5 ¼” and stamp the images using Staz On Jet black ink all over the panel. Color the images in with Stampin’ Write markers.

Cover the foam adhesive with some clear plastic (I used some Mylar) and then Die cut a rectangular frame and cover the edges of the clear plastic.

Striking A Pose layout

Hello and welcome.  I just wanted to drop in really quick and share my latest scrapbook layout with you all.  I used the Echo Park/ Lori Whitlock "That's My Boy" collection and paired that with some Lawn Fawn dies used to create the clouds and the sun. I created the background with Gelatos and created circles and hearts using Stampin Up framelits.  Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

You're Just Lovely card

Hello and welcome to today's post. Summer is almost over so I wanted to create a colorful and flowery card before it's time to work on Halloween cards and gifts. This card was created for a Stampin' Up Sept Challenge for a group I'm in and we were instructed to use circles but instead I used flowers. I just love the colors in the DSP that are so light and airy. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.


.

Supplies:
.

Additional supplies: ATG, clear blocks, powder bag, heat tool.

  • Create a card base from Night of Navy card stock to measures 4 ¼” x 11” and score at 5 ½”.

  • Cut a Whisper White panel to measure 4” x 5 ¼” and then cut a strip of DSP to ¾” x 5 ¼” and then one to measure 1 ¼” x 5 ¼”. Adhere the strips on the left side of the panel, leaving a tiny strip of the white panel between each. Adhere the whole panel to the card base.

  • Next I stamped the three flowers with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled with clear embossing powder and then heat set. I then used a sponge dauber for the center of the flower with Lemon Lime Twist ink and another for the outside of the flower using soft sky ink. Die-cut the flowers with the coordinating thinlits.

  • Stamp the 2 leaves using the Lemon Lime Twist ink and die-cut using the coordinating thinlits and the Big Shot machine (or your favorite die-cutting machine). Place one leaf in the upper left of the card front using Mini-Glue dots and then place two of the flowers over the stem and DSP. Pop the other flower up with a Dimensional and place the other leaf in the bottom right under the flower.

  • Stamp the sentiment in the bottom left corner of the card front.


  • The inside of the card was left blank for a personal message.
