For Your Shower

>> Monday, December 22, 2014

I'm taking a break from Christmas cards and sharing a shower card I created for a friend who's wedding shower is coming up quickly!

The umbrella was stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I used the blending pen to create some dots on the darker blue panels of the umbrella. The Rain Down sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with detail white EP, then die cut with a nestie. I stamped the For Your Shower Sentiment in black ink on the white panel before embossing it with a Darice flower EF. Everything is attached to the blue card base. Some rhinestones and a sheer white bow finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!



Christmas Gift Card Holder

>> Sunday, December 21, 2014

Good morning all, I need some gift card holders so I could finish up my gift wrapping. This is what I came up with simple but cute.

The red card stock is 7 1/2 x 3 1/2 and scored at 1/2 inch and 4 inches. 

                                                                                                       The kraft card stock is 10 x 3 1/4  scored at 4 inches and 8 inches.

I stamped the Interlocking Snow Background with white ink.

 I cut a piece of the kraft card stock with a Spellbinder die and stamped the Small Merry Christmas with Coco ink and added a red line by tracing inside the die with a distress marker. The punched snowflake is MS.

The kraft layer was stamped with Splatter Background and white ink then I stamped the Interlocking Snow background in the Coco ink.

This is how the inside looks.

I'm off to work on some more Christmas preparations.

Have a wonderful day,



Cardinal Christmas

>> Saturday, December 20, 2014

Happy Saturday to you all!!
My plaid doesn't look as red as the cardinal but it really is quite red and green and blue!!! I just love playing with that cut apart plaid stamp!  It is so fun to make a variety of plaids in a variety of colors to match your image!!! Woven Plaid 613P, ask for it in the cut apart version, it comes mounted on cling foam. I added some pen (Tombow) lines to this plaid pattern as well.  The Cardinal is: Cardinal on a Branch 856M, I did a little out of the box cutting for the cardinal as you can tell, top and bottom.  The pine cones also have some Liquid Pearls and glitter on them!  I did some little white Sharpie dots in the sky for snow.  The dies are: Spellbinder and Marianne Designs and the snowflake punches are: EK Success.  My ribbon is the nice wrinkled type (it isn't very wrinkled though, is it?)
Lastly, I added a nice rhinestone to the big snowflake.

Well, I can't believe how close it is to Christmas!! Just a few more days, in fact, our next challenge is on Christmas day!  But don't worry, you have a whole week to join in the fun!
Merry Christmas to all and God bless us everyone!


Let it Snow Penguins

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I'm happy to report I did mail all my Christmas cards last weekend, but I haven't quite finished with the shopping part. I tried, really I did...sigh..but I fear a couple of people are going to get their gifts a tad late. I know..if it wasn't for the last minute, I'd probably never get things done.

My card today is pretty simple. I stamped the Let it Snow Penguins with black then added some color to them with Copics. The Snow Background was stamped on the top section w/ the lt blue ink. For the snow hills, I die cut some white strips with some stitched hills dies, sponged blue on two of them the attached them on top of each other. Percy Penguin was fussy cut and added in the corner and stitches was added for some sparkle. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
ink: Memento tuxedo black, Memories sky blue
paper: white, cobalt blue
accessories: Copic markers, stickles, stitched hills dies, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & B dies

Pretty Poinsettia

>> Wednesday, December 17, 2014


One week till Christmas Eve!  ONE WEEK!  Are you getting there?  I'm actually feeling confident at this point, which I'm sure will change in the next few days :)

But while I'm feeling calm and confident I have this card to share with you today!

I started by stamping our Giant Poinsettia on white card stock, coloring it and fussy cutting it.  The wooden square background  are actually just that - actual think pieces of wood meant for business cards that have been in my craft supplies so long I can't remember where they came from.  They were a very light color so I used some brown ink and "stained" them and then alternated the grain as I attached them to my red panel which I had run through my cuttlebug using a swiss dots folder on the top 3/4.  The Merry Christmas is part of our Christmas Multi Greeting which I stamped using black ink.  I attached all (including the black ribbon and charm) to the red panel and all of that to a folded black card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!



Snow Fun!

>> Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Hi Everyone,

I'm here today to share my card that I made in support of a challenge that DRS Designs is the sponsor of this week.  Are you still scrambling to get your last minute cards made?  Well, why not consider playing along...Who knows, you might come out a winner of a $10.00 voucher to use in the DRS Designs store. The challenge is being held at Creative Colors Challenge Blog, and if you can't guess from my card what the specifics are, you can check them out right here.
Here are the stamps I used to make my card:
Heart Swag Snowman -It's an all time favorite of mine!
No Snow Fun Greeting-only the last two words of it ;)
We also have a challenge here at the DRS Designs blog, each and every Thursday.  This week the it's  "Sing it to Me", and the theme is sheet music.  If you put on your thinking cap, I bet you could combine these two challenges and you'd be in the running for two prizes!
Good luck playing along and getting all you holiday cards done too!
