THE PINES

I’m adding one more Christmas card to my pile today!  This one uses the In The Pines stamp set(153448) framed in garden green.

Since these are a two-step stamping collection, I took advantage and used both Garden Green and Pretty Peacock ink to fill in that lovely grove of trees.  If you look really closely, you will see some tiny snowflakes falling gently on the trees.

I was inspired to use this layout from the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

My panel doesn’t have as many sections, but I really like the way it turned out!

Here’s the list of products used.

Have a great weekend, stay safe and healthy and go do some stamping!

FLOWERS TO BRIGHTEN THE DAY

Hi.  I’m playing with the Ornate Style Bundle again!  Who doesn’t need some cheerful flowers to brighten the day!

I found this layout on page 67 of the Annual Catalogue and CASED it!  The change is the designer paper background from the Flowers for Every Season pack(152486).

Since the Ornate Style stamp set doesn’t have greetings, I called on the Many Mates stamp set for the happy thanks! What a lovely, cheerful card to send to brighten someone’s day!

BIRTHDAY’S AND COOKIES GO TOGETHER

Who likes chocolate chip cookies?  Me, me, me!  I had fun with the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle for today’s very orange card!

With, those delicious chocolate chips cookies!!!  I am playing along with two challenges today.  The Paper Players,

and, SUO Challenges which is to feature birthdays!

Who says you can’t have cookies instead of cake for a birthday!  I used the Word Wishes Dies(151816)  for the birthday greeting and added the extra challenge of using our Foam Adhesive Sheets(152815) to cut out those words.  They pop those words up nicely, but make a note that you really need to carry a lot of patience when popping out all of the tiny bits, lol.  Ask me how I know!

Enjoy these cookies and happy stamping!

NO STAMPING TODAY

Today’s card is a “no stamping” card!  Sometimes you just need to  use dies to get the inspiration going!

I started off by using the largest snowflake dies from the So Many Snowflakes dies(153560) and then added the word “peace” from the Joy Dies(153530).  It needed a back-up so I added a piece of Pacific Point cardstock to add some colour.

I’m hoping that this will go along for the CAS(E) this sketch challenge this week.

I just couldn’t leave a big, blank spot and that is why that lovely large snowflake!

Here’s the list of products used.  NOTE:  I like to use our Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the smaller pieces.

This card came just in time, as we got some snow yesterday, so why not put it on paper!

Happy Stamping!

NEW TO ME

Hello and welcome to a brand new week!  Today, I’m introducing a “new to me” bundle that I just had to add to my collection!  These lovely flowers are appropriate for any season, don’t you think?

The bundle is called Ornate Style(154119) and the dies are really, really beautiful!  Take a look….

…I love this picture that shows how each die will look when it’s cut out!

Now, you may not recognize the sentiment and that’s because it’s in a stamp set bundle(Quite Curvy) that will be available to you in November.  I loved the message in this particular greeting and had to add it to the card!

COLD MOMENTS – WARM HEART

Hello there and welcome!  We’ve been experiencing colder temperatures here so that inspired me to pull out the Snowflake Wishes Bundle(155172)!  Today’s card will be sending out warm wishes from the heart!

I found out the hard way, lol that the beautiful label die in this bundle does not cut the label but cuts it out in the middle of your paper.  So, I trimmed it down and used it as a frame for that lovely warm greeting!  The Winter Snow Embossing Folder(153577) gives that lovely snowy texture which helps to enhance the greeting as well.

Here’s the list of products used.

TODAY’S PLAN

Do you plan out your days on a regular basis?  I try to but sometimes one just has to stop and eat chocolate,lol!

I’ve been enjoying using the Plaid Tidings designer paper(153527) and love this colour with my chocolates!  The designer paper is part of the Sale going on for the month of October and you can pick it up for 15% off right now!

I had a little fun with heat embossing for the chocolates and used a piece of our Adhesive Sheets to make attaching the word so much easier.

Here is the list of products used.  Note: I did not list the punch I used for the sentiment as it is retired – my bad!

WITH GRATITUDE

It is with gratitude on this Thanksgiving Day that we are able to spend time with our immediate family.

Of course, there’s always time for creating and I love this pretty fox image to convey the thanks!  Our fall colours are quickly disappearing and yes, we did get a little skiff of snow over the weekend.  Not enough to stay around, but we take it as a promise that winter is not too far away for those of us up here in northeastern BC!

IMPORTANT:  I am having to create a new template for my monthly Newsletter and it’s taking much longer than I anticipated.  Please know, that I will be sending it out as soon as I possibly can and many thanks for your patience!

In the meantime, check out the list of products used for today’s card.

BEAUTIFUL FALL FOLIAGE

Wow, it’s the Friday of our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and our beautiful fall foliage is showing it’s colourful splendor!  So, why not create a card with just a touch of those colours!

I started with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and used the Subtle Embossing folder to add a little texture.  The next step was to ruffle through my unfinished projects bowl and voilå, found some leaves from the Forever Fern Bundle!  There were added to accent that lovely piece from the Gilded Autumn specialty designer paper!  A simple card with a cheery hello!

Then I followed along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches for the rest!

THE MOOSE IN FALL

Hi and welcome!  I’m back to fall for today’s card.  Our yard sees lots of visits from deer and moose, so I pulled out the returning favourite, Merry Moose Bundle(153015)!

This is a “2-step” stamp so it’s easy to get the details for the moose image!  Use the Stamparatus(146276)* for easy placement of the 2 colours!

I wanted this guy/girl to be surrounded by trees and leaves so add the piece of designer paper from the Gilded Autumn package. And, a little embossing with the Woodland Embossing folder for the background.

There, The Paper Players theme challenge achieved!
