WARM & TOASTY

From summer flowers to warm and toasty winter!  Only in the stamping world!  I just couldn’t resist the snowman in the new Warm & Toasty stamp set(152615) that’s in the 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue!

Isn’t that the cutest snowman ever?!  And, he can skate!  I kept this card really clean and simple so that active snowman would stand out.  His scarf was coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers, Shaded Spruce, Real Red and Seaside Spray.  A background mat of Real Red sets him off along with the red in the “Tis the Season Designer Paper.

Here’s the list of products for you.

A cute card to add to my Christmas card stash.  Christmas is coming, so now is the time to get started on your Christmas crafting.  I’ll be posting card classes for September through December soon, so stay tuned.

Happy Stamping!

A LITTLE JOY TO START THE WEEK

Hi, I hope that you had a great weekend filled with brightness and joy!  Ours was busy as we enjoyed the lovely bright and sunny weather, so what better way to start the week than with a really bright card!

This card brings me joy for sure especially since I got to use the new Joy Dies(153530).  They have both the word and the base with 2 sizes to choose from.  Make sure to check them out in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue 2020!

I’m also playing along with the SUO Challenge which is a designer’s choice.  I think this card fits, don’t you?

Here’s the product list for you.

FOR YOU FRIEND

With this heat wave going on my thoughts have turned to cooler weather!  Of course, the new Aug-Dec. Mini Catalogue has helped to inspire that “cool” train of thought.

So, why not an autumn-themed card?!  I used the Forever Fern Bundle(154094) and teamed it up with a piece from the Gilded Autumn Specialty designer paper(153520) and a little shot of copper ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic ribbon combo pack(page 45 Mini Catalogue).

The layout comes from the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  There’s room for lots of interpretation with this one!

A SPECIAL WEDDING DAY

Today’s card is a simple wedding(or anniversary) card that features the Grace’s Garden stamp set and matching Garden Gateway Dies(151512).

I used the curved fence die for the base, added touches of Smokey Slate to give it an aged look and then topped it off with those trails of yellow roses.  A simple greeting for the happy couple!

Using the wedding theme came from the latest challenge from The Paper Players.

Here’s the product list for you.

YOU GOTTA LOVE THOSE TREATS

The Pampered Pets Bundle(154069) is so darn cute so I used it to send a treat-laden card made with love!

This would be great for the cat-lover in your life and check out that background of fish, paw prints and hearts!  So cute!

I played along with the new CAS(E) this sketch layout for this and adding those extra hearts was absolutely necessary!

Here’s the list of products for you.  Also, my Online Store has a completely new look so you will be able to check it out when you click on the thumbnails.

LOVE BLOSSOMS

When the flowers bloom – love blossoms!  That is what was on my mind while checking out our flower garden!  So, why not create a card with the Forever Blossoms stamp set?

There’s so new things on this card too!  I received my pre-order for the Aug – Dec. Mini Catalogue and fell in love with the Gilded Autumn Specialty designer paper so just had to use a piece for this card!  Which led me to going with a gold theme!  Love it!

Here’s the product list for you – just remember that the designer paper and the new punch will not be available until tomorrow, Aug. 4th!

TODAY IS YOUR DAY

Friday is here and if you’re celebrating, today is all about you!  I haven’t used the Free As A Bird(149468) stamp set in a while so pulled it out for this card!

I used one of the patterns in the Forever Gold Laser-cut specialty paper and it is really hard to get a good picture of it.  So, I moved it to another room with lots of sunlight!

This layout comes from The Paper Players challenge for this week and the gold piece worked perfectly for this sketch.

A special greeting was called for, so I added one from the Many Mates stamp set(152633).  It has many great sentiments, so make sure to check it out.

Here’s the full list of products used.

JUST SAYING HELLO

Saying hello to you today with a little golden touch!  This card was created using the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper(152493).

There are so many beautiful pieces in this package it was hard to choose which one to use for this card!  I accented it with that lovely greeting from the Tasteful Touches stamp set!  The flowers are from the same set and I love them stamped with the Seaside Spray ink.

GET BETTER SOON

When I first saw the Back on Your Feet stamp set(149385), I just had to have it.  The oh-so-cute critters make sending get better soon greetings are the best for putting a smile on the recipient’s face!

Awww, poor guy!  I had a ton of fun with this card and, in my defence, the greeting is a little off-kilter because that poor little sloth doesn’t feel too well.

I used a few Stampin’ Blends to colour as well as the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker for the bandage!

The layout from CAS(E) this sketch was the starting point and I added a little help from the Toile Christmas stamp set and matching dies for the “branch”.

Here’s the list of products used.
