WHITE ON WHITE WONDER

Well, we got more snow and some very chilly temperatures over the weekend which helped to inspire me to create this white on white Christmas card.

This is a 4-1/4″ square card which fits in for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge as well as The Paper Players white on white challenge.

Here’s the sketch that I followed for Freshly Made sketches.

I pulled out the older but beautiful Flurry of Wishes stamp set and had some heat embossing fun with those beautiful snowflake images.

CHRISTMAS HAPPINESS – FRAMED

It’s back to Christmas cards for today’s post and I’m using the Christmas Happiness stamp set for this lovely, framed picture.

The Pretty Pines Thinlits dies worked perfectly for this card – the only stamping involved is the greeting!  I followed along with The Paper Players Holiday Pines challenge and am pretty sure that this works.

FOR A SHINY BRIGHT CHRISTMAS

Hi there and welcome.  I went back to Christmas for today’s card and played with die-cuts, glitter and glue!

I started out with our wonderful Thick Whisper White cardstock, made some choices from The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and got to work!

I cut the tree bundle twice from the thick cardstock and one of the deer.  Glue the two trees together using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

TECHNIQUE:  The glitter on the trees is a combination of Gold and Dazzling Diamond glitter (about 1 tsp of each).  The Multipurpose Liquid Glue works really well for this technique – just use the wide end to lightly spread the glue over the trees and then sprinkle the glitter for a great effect!

I hope you give this technique a try and Happy Stamping!

HERE’S YOUR BIRTHDAY CUPCAKE

Which do you prefer, cupcakes or a big cake for your birthday?  I like both but decided to create today’s card with just one delicious looking cupcake!

I am playing along with The Paper Players sketch and that one delicious cupcake is the focal point for the sketch.  Our Glitter Enamel Dots make the perfect cherry on top!  These dots are great because they go from dark to light in the same colour family so they add a bit more interest to your project.

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.

PRETTY FALL FLOWERS

Fall is a colourful time of year with its pretty fall flowers and beautifully coloured leaves!  That’s what I tried to capture for today’s project.

I thought it best to start out with a clean card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I went from there with the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch, the colour choices from Create with Connie and Mary as well as the theme challenge from The Paper Players.

I also used the Colorful Seasons Bundle so I could use the matching leaf die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  They are lovely aren’t they?  And this stamp set is just one of the items on for 15% off for the World Cardmaking Day specials good until October 10, 2017!

THESE BALLOONS ARE HAPPY

These balloons are happy and colourful and the perfect greeting for a happy birthday!

I pulled out the Lift Me Up stamp set and matching Up & Away Thinlits dies to create this one for The Paper Players sketch.

To get the background, I adhered a piece of Naturally Eclectic designer paper to the card front and then stamped the clouds onto it with Versamark.  The all it took was a sprinkle of White Emboss powder to be heat set and voilà, we have clouds.

The ballon image was stamped twice in different colours as well as the basket.  I cut the bottom half off of the emerald envy ballon and adhered it to the top of the red balloon, put them together and added them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  So cute!

THE HARVEST

Hello to you and welcome to my harvest post!  Today’s card shows off some beautiful designer paper as well as some lovely leaves from the September Paper Pumpkin kit.

I’m playing along with The Paper Players challenge and used our fabulous Thick Very Vanilla cardstock for the card base.  The September Paper Pumpkin kit delivered up some beautiful leaves and I just couldn’t resist using them for the focal point on this card.  The greeting is thanks from the Painted Harvest stamp set.

PRETTY ORCHIDS JUST FOR YOU

Do you like Orchids?  They just seem to say something exotic don’t they?  Todays card shows off a few with a little heat embossing.

The Paper Players posted a great Colour Challenge that includes, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Silver and White so I went for it!  I wanted to use the Climbing Orchid Bundle so checked out the card sketch from CAS(E) this sketch and went from there.

The silver on my card is the mat behind those pretty pink orchids and I combined White and Silver emboss powder(about 1/2 tsp of each colour) to get that muted colour for the flower centres and the greeting.

Here’s a copy of the sketch in case you’d like to play along as well.

BACK TO SCHOOL

It’s back to school as well as starting school for many so I created this card to cheerfully send them on their way!

And the Crafting Forever stamp set (143958CM 143955WM) worked perfectly for The Paper Players Back-to-School Theme challenge.

I stamped that trio of pens with the Basic Gray Archival ink and then relaxed with a little colouring with our fantastic Stampin’ Write Markers.

The “S” looked a little lonely on that circle so I added the “chool” to finish the work and just had to fussy cut out that tiny pair of scissors to add.

Here’s the full list of all of the products that I used.
