Do you remember when “what does the fox say” was very much in style? Well, I’m bringing it back to showcase todays card.
This lovely fox image can be found in The Wilderness Awaits stamp set that is available in both clear-mount and wood-mount. I decided to use it to create a birthday card for my husband. His birthday is December 27th and I wanted something special for him. I used an Aqua Painter to add the grass with Old Olive ink but left the fox in gray.
If you take a close look at the card base you will see that I embossed it with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing folder and used a sponge and Soft Suede ink to highlight the tree branches.
Good day to you. I thought you might like to check out this fun technique from Stampin’ Up! The video shows you how to add colour to the beautiful textured Fancy Frost Specialty Designer paper.
Great video isn’t it? This is a fun technique and you can use it on any project that you’re working on.
The Fancy Frost Specialty Designer paper is part of the Year-End Close-Outs sale and is going away very soon. Make sure to check it out in my Online Store. While you’re there you might like to check out all the other great sale products too!
Well, our winter weather has arrived with a vengeance and we have snow, snow and more snow with cold temperatures to match. -25 C temperatures to be exact. So todays card, covered in snowflakes, was inspired by our weather.
The Paper Players theme challenge to use snowflakes was another inspiration as was the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.
I chose to use the Star of Light stamp set because the smaller star shapes reminded me of snowflakes. I love the combination of Night of Navy and Soft Sky and the bit of glitter.
Hello there and I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. In between getting the Christmas decorations out I made time to get these gift tags ready for tomorrow night’s class.
These tags measure 5″ x 2-1/2″ and the products that I used from the Holiday catalogue are on the Year-end closeouts list. Several of these items are retiring and are guaranteed to be available until December 21st – after that, only while supplies last and discontinued after January 3, 2017. See the items HERE. They are conveniently divided into sections to make it easier to find what you are looking for.
Good day and Wow, there’s another great Sale on these wonderful Stampin’ Up! products.
First, let’s have a look at today’s card created with the Best Birds Bundle.
I had fun doing some watercoloring with the Aqua Painter for the birds. They are supposed to be robins – what do you think?
It’s true, Stampin’ Up! is doing their spring cleaning early and just in time for your last minute holiday shopping. Some products are available up to 60% off the regular price. This sale runs from today, December 1, 2016 through to January 2, 2017. Visit my Online Store to shop.
Now, here’s the full list of products that I used for today’s card.
I took some time to create this beary big thank you card the other day. The Baby Bear stamp set is a 3-step set and lots of fun to create with.
I started with the great sketch from The Paper Players and used Smoky Slate ink for the first layer of the bear. Then added Basic Gray and Basic Black to finish it off. That pretty bow is a 2-step stamp and I found that Blushing Bride and Sweet Sugarplum ink work together very well.
Here’s the sketch that I followed in case you’d like to save it for some inspiration.
This would make a great thank you to send after Christmas to someone special don’t you think?
Do you have a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies? Last week we got together to create some gifts for Christmas giving and made this jar of ingredients to make the best chocolate chip cookies.
What better stamp set to use than the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and the matching Candy Cane Lane designer paper! The label measures 6″ x 5-1/2″ (folded at 2-3/4″) to hold the recipe for these delicious cookies. Adding a candy cane is the “icing on the cookie”, LOL.
This is a simple gift to create – all you need is a quart jar to hold the ingredients.
Are you planning ahead for your Christmas Dinner? We get together as a family at my house for Christmas dinner so this year I decided to send out a fun invitation. I paired Marquee Messages with the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle to create these.
I enjoy attending Cynthia’s card and scrapbook classes. Her studio is comfortable and bright. I really like the colour combinations she uses. She is very organized and does the prep work allowing you to concentrate on the techniques. She is very flexible, even if you want to make some changes to make the project “your own”. I highly recommend Cynthia as a demonstrator!
I really enjoy Cynthia’s creative skills and look forward to going to her classes and workshops. Cynthia always has fun and inspirational project ideas. She is always ready to lend a hand and help you where needed, if she doesn’t have an answer for you, she will do her best to find one ASAP. I would go to any one of her classes or workshops anytime for years to come.
Having Cynthia as my upline has been a very pleasant experience for me. She is always available to answer my questions and is very knowledgeable about Stampin’ Up products. I have attended her classes and they are very professional and well organized. I am always excited to share the projects she demonstrates with my customers after attending her classes. She puts a lot of thought and effort into planning her classes. I am very fortunate to have met Cynthia, and am looking forward to learning from her for many years to come. Thanks Cynthia....you are the best!!
Cynthia’s classes are set up very thorough and professional. I learn something new at every class and it is always a fun night out.
