ADD A LITTLE SPARKLE TO THE SEASON

It’s time to sparkle for the coming season and today’s card does just that!

When you have sparkle you also have a “small” problem with light reflection, lol.  However, this looks pretty good and shows off that Mercury Glass designer acetate well!

I added snowflakes created with the Frosted Frames dies along the side to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches layout for this week.

The beauty of having the greeting along the side as shown in the sketch, is that the recipient may just set the card on the horizontal when they receive it.

Here’s the product list for you.

SHADES OF PURPLE

Happy Friday to you.  Today’s post features the colour purple with this soft and pretty all occasion card.

I was thinking birthday with this one but really love the font on that greeting from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

The softly coloured wreath was done in Purple Posy and comes from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  I love the tufted background created with the Tufted 3D embossing folder.  It’s really easy to use when partnered with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.

Here’s the list of all of the products that I used to create this pretty card.

A VERY MERRY SNOWMAN

OK, I went to my die-cutting machine to create this funny-looking snowman for today’s card.

I’m laughing as I post this because he looks a little smug.  I used the Layering Circles dies to create him and then added his face with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  And then added the holly leaves using the stamp set that was in the November Paper Pumpkin kit.  A snowman isn’t a snowman without a little snow, so I added the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.

I really wanted to play along with The Paper Players theme challenge this week so that’s why this snowman looks a little smug, lol!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

NEED SOME GIFT CARD HOLDERS?

Sometimes it’s difficult to choose just the right gift but these pretty gift card holders will help you deliver just the right choice.

They’re pretty and simple to create with just a little cutting, scoring and folding.

This is the open view.  Cut your cardstock to 4-1/4″ x 10-3/4″.  Score at 2″ and 6-1/2″.  You will need a slot to hold the gift card so I used the small oval tag die from the Detailed Bands dies.

Then decorate to your preference and Voilå your gift card holder is done!

Here’s the list of products used.

TO A WILD ROSE

Happy Monday and a warm welcome to you!  I recently added the To A Wild Rose bundle to my stamp library and got right to work with it.

It’s so very pretty so to get started with it, I CASE’d the card on page 140 of the annual catalogue.  I used an Old Olive card base as the starting point and used the Corrugated embossing folder to add some texture.

Masking is he technique used here to make it easier to add those extra blooms.  Just use the die to cut out one flower and place it over the first stamped bloom.  Easy!

THE BEST CATCH EVER

Hi there and thank you for visiting today!  I’m going to finish off the week with the Best Catch Ever.  Hint: it’s all about fishing.

There’s nothing more exciting that having “the one” on your line after a long day at the lake!  This was created with the Best Catch and Waterfront stamp sets to follow along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout.

I used the “water” stamp from Waterfront for the background to play into the “scribble in the background of the sketch and the rest just came together.

Note: I do not yet have the matching dies for Best Catch, so fussy-cut the fish.

Here’s the list of products used.

In a snowy and cold area, it’s nice to think back to days fishing at the lake, isn’t it?  Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!

GARDEN LANE FOR A SIMPLE CHRISTMAS CARD

Yesterday, I posted a card that used the lovely Garden Lane designer paper and suggested that it would make a pretty Christmas card.  Today’s card is the result of using that paper!

You don’t need much to add a bit of glitz, just a few dies cuts and some Gold Foil!  The Frosted Frames dies has some great pieces so I cut out a few and gathered them together with a piece of twine from the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack.  Of course, adding a few Gold Metallic Pearls was a necessity for more glitz!

What layout to use?  Well,  The Paper Players of course, which also helps to show off that lovely designer paper.

Here’s the list of products used.

TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROAD

Take me home country road – there’s a song about that isn’t there?

The Country Road stamp set is perfectly themed for the country lover and I couldn’t resist creating this card with it.

I matched it up with the lovely green tones in the Garden Lane designer series paper and followed along with this CAS(E) this sketch layout.

I choose to use Mossy Meadow as the feature green to frame the wind vane and for the sentiment piece as well.

TIP:  With it’s shades of green the Garden Lane DSP will make a very pretty Christmas card too!

Here’s the full list of products used.

IDEAS FOR GIFT TAGS FOR YOU

I’ve been busy prepping for Gift Tag class this week and had a ton of fun creating these gift tags.

They involved using a combination of stamp sets but I’m pretty happy with the way they all turned out.  When you have several Christmas-themed stamp sets in your stash, you just have to make good use of them along with dies and punches to help in the creation!

Have a great Tuesday and Happy Stamping!
