A TIMELESS MESSAGE

Today’s card shows the timeless message of the holiday season with the Still Scenes Bundle.

I used the Snow Globe Shaker Dome and added a little of the Ice Stampin’ Glitter to that lovely little scene.  The trees in the background came from the October Paper Pumpkin kit.

Once the front of the card was done I added a touch of snowflakes compliment of the Frosted Foliage stamp set.

I didn’t want to take away from that lovely soft scene so added the verse to the inside of the card.

THE MOOSE IS LOOSE

The Christmoose is loose!  I just had to play around with the Merry Moose Bundle and had fun creating this card.

The moose was stamped with Celestial Copper and then over-stamped with Early Espresso for the outline.  And this is so easy to do when you use the Stamparatus!

After embossing the card front, I used a Sponge Dauber to add a little Crumb Cake ink to highlight the forest background.  I prefer to use the Sponge Dauber because it is easier to put the ink where you want it!

I was using the CAS(E) this sketch layout for this card so used the Word Wishes dies to create the line of greetings.

PAPER PUMPKIN IS SO MUCH FUN

I recently re-subscribed to Paper Pumpkin and was excited to receive the October kit.  Putting these cards together was so much fun!

There are enough supplies to create 10 cards and ample opportunity to put your own “spin” on them as well.

This kit is so very pretty and Stampin’ Up! has prepared the November Paper Pumpkin kit to coordinate with this kit.  Gift tags are a necessary part of Christmas gift-giving and the November kit gives everything needed to create 24 tags!

If you’d like to get in with the Paper Pumpkin crowd visit my Website to sign up.  The deadline is November 10th!

Paper Pumpkin makes a great gift for the crafter in your life too!  It’s easy to gift them a subscription for any length of time.

Happy Stamping!

CHRISTMAS FRIENDSHIP

It’s a Friday Christmas friendship card for you today!  Is it too soon to let you know that today is 2 months until Christmas??

The colours of Christmas are bright and friendly and so I just had to create this bright card of friendship branches.  The Toile Christmas Bundle and matching designer paper was the perfect mix.

I love colouring and those branches were given life with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends.  Notice the tiny bow at the top?  I used the Dark Real Red blend to colour it.  The fact that our blends are alchohol based makes it easy and no drying period wait either.

The layout comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

YULETIDE CHEER TO YOU

I was playing around with the Frosted Foliage Bundle and was taken by the large Yuletide cheer greeting.  The question was how to put it on a card so it would stand out?

Well, like that of course!  The background image from Feels Like Frost DSP is a beauty so it had to be on this card as well.  I also played around with the Ice Stampin’ Glitter for that pretty frame and applied a thin layer of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue pen first.  (If you click on the photo it will show you a close-up).

This week’s challenge over at The Paper Players is to “say it LOUD” so this should fit in with that.  Clean and Simple as well?  You be the judge.

I always like to play along with The Paper Players and was delighted to see that This Card from last week’s challenge had been chosen as “a cut above”!

IT’S TIME FOR TEA

With the cold and snow we’ve been having lately, I decided that a project made with Tea Together stamp set would be the best way to go today.

This stamp set was carried over last year along with the matching Tea Time dies!  I was following along with the CAS(E) this sketch layout and decide to use our Pigment Sprinkles(Bermuda Bay) and a Stampin’ Spritzer for the background piece.

NOTE:  When it dries it wrinkles the paper so I recommend using Tear & Tape Adhesive to attach it to the card front.

CREATE HAPPY MEMORIES

Hi and welcome to this Monday post.  Today’s Happy Memories card features the Toile Christmas Bundle paired with the beautiful Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP.

The other side of this beautiful designer paper is a study in silver which lead to more silver in the cardinal and the greeting.  I felt that setting it all off with a pop of Real Red would help and adding those tiny Red Rhinestone jewels finished it off perfectly!

Here’s the list of products used.

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

For this Friday, the theme is “home for the holidays”!  I combined the Still Scenes Bundle and Frosted Foliage to set off this lovely home awaiting family and friends.

I just love that little scene and added lots of colour with our Stampin’ Blends.  The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint is so much fun to use to add snow-y accents too!

Freshly Made Sketches provided the layout and Frosted Foliage added some of the snowflakes gently falling around this lovely home.

Have a great weekend and I hope that you can get some stamping done as well!

PTERODACTYL HALLOWEEN

Pterodactyl, whew that’s a mouthful!  However, when you want to create a Halloween-themed project you sometimes need to go to the Dino Days bundle!  Especially when you don’t have any Halloween-themed stamp sets.  He, he, so here it is!

I sure had fun with this and took some of the colours from The Paper Players Colour Challenge.

Just a note:  Elegant Eggplant and Tangelo Twist are retired colours from Stampin’ Up! so I substituted Terracotta Tile and Blackberry Bliss.

The pine boughs in the background are from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set and I thought that they would make a great background done in Smokey Slate.

I hope that this has inspired you to try different stamp sets in a “non traditional” way.
