EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY

East, drink and be merry is a classic Christmas greeting and I loved using it for this happy card.

The Christmas Around the World Designer paper has so many happy images and I just couldn’t resist adding it to this card.  Ir’s also on the Buy 3 Get 1 Free special that’s on until October 31, 2017.

The layered labels with that inviting greeting can be removed to use on a parcel.  Adding the pretty pines die-cuts topped with the red ribbon top that pretty parcel label of just right!

TIP:  If you want to get different colours on your image as I did on the greeting, just use our Stampin’ Write Marker with the “direct to stamp” technique.  Voilá, you have a multi-coloured greeting.

Here is the list of everything I used for today’s card.

A PERFECT YELLOW ROSE

Where can you find a perfect yellow rose at this time of the year?  Well, on today’s card, that’s where!

I used the Graceful Garden stamp set and stamped it’s large, perfect rose with Basic Gray Archival ink and then coloured it in with Stampin’ Write Markers.  That lovely layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches which is the perfect way to show off that rose!  If you’d like to create something with this great sketch, here it is for you.

TREATS FOR THE SWEET TOOTH

Today’s post is not a card!  I decided to create some cute treat holders for the sweet trick or treaters who will be coming to our door in a couple of weeks instead!

The are little coffins – aren’t they cute?  I’ll share the template so you can create your own at the bottom of this post.  In the meantime, What Will you Stamp posted a challenge to use the Spooky Cat stamp set, and that is where the greeting comes from.

I used the Hardwood background stamp to add the wood grain to the Soft Suede coffin and also made good use of three new ribbons to decorate these cuties.

Here’s the list of products for you.

As promised, you can print off the template below to create your own little coffins.

Have a great time creating and Happy Stamping.

MAGICAL CHRISTMAS WITH STAMPIN’ UP!

I’m late today but still wanted to share this magical Christmas tree with you.  It was created using the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set that has so many great images to share.

I started with this great layout from the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge which is a great way to show off a couple of the beautiful designs in the Christmas Around the World Designer Series paper.  Then all I had to do was use that cute Christmas tree image(with a little colouring using Stampin’ Write Markers) and beautiful verse to complete the card.  Adding that bright and pretty ribbon finished things off nicely!

The designer series paper is still on for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale and you can see all of the choices Here.

THE THANKFUL OWL

Happy Tuesday to you!  It took 3 stamp sets to create today’s card but I think this thankful owl was worth it.

I’m playing along with 2 challenges as well, a colour challenge from The Paper Players and the sketch that CAS(E) this sketch posted.

The Colours that The Paper Players asked us to use are Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  I had a little trouble adding the Peekaboo Peach but think that the owl looks pretty good in that colour and sitting on that branch.  The card base was embossed using the Woodland embossing folder and you may have to click on the picture to get a good look.

This card was fun to put together and here’s the list of products that I used.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FRIEND

It’s Thanksgiving day here in Canada so here are wishes for a happy and delicious day to my Canadian friends.

That’s a busy, but fun background piece from the Painted Autumn designer series paper but I was able to tone it down a bit with those pretty leaves and the greeting cut-out.

I really like the combination of Crushed Curry and Early Espresso, as it seems to say fall so nicely.

Here is the list of products that I used and don’t forget that the World Card Making Day Sale ends on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017.

COFFEE TOGETHER FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY

Let’s have coffee together to celebrate your birthday!  That’s what this cute card says!

I used several different designs from the Coffee Break Designer series paper for the background and then layered two great cups of coffee over them.  The top cup was cut out of a piece of the designer paper and the one underneath was cut from Shimmery White cardstock.  I used the Touches of Texture stamp set to add the design to make that cup seems authentic.

The Coffee Break Designer series paper is just one of the great buys from the Buy 3 Get 1 Free offer from Stampin’ Up!  This sale goes until October 31, 2017 and is a great way to build up your designer paper stash!  See all of the designs on my Website.

HERE’S TO YOUR BUBBLY STYLE

You’ve Got Style with your bubbly personality!  This card says it in style for sure.

The You’ve Got Style stamp set is just plain fun to work with and I love this lady with her colourful style.  I had a ton of fun colouring her with our Stampin’ Up! inks, an Aqua Painter as well as a few choice colours from our Stampin’ Write Markers. The kitty cat just finishes things off perfectly.

The layout for this card came from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and is the perfect way to highlight this styling’ lady.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Caution – it’s a long one.
