Happy 2014!

A new year has began once again.  Hopefully everyone will find happiness and fulfillment in the coming year. I am looking at job changes as well as other of my family.  That can always bring apprehension.  My youngest daughter will be graduating from High School and then on to new things as well this year.  I will become the empty nester unless my older children have to move back due to struggling times.  Hopefully they will find work and will be able to maintain life of their own.  Love them all and always glad to help as needed.

I created this card to celebrate the new year.  This is such a fun stamp but is now several years old.  It’s fun to find a new way to use something that is old.

New Years 2014

 

I used the embossing folder from the 2013 Holiday Catalog.  New gold baker’s twine from the 2014 Spring Catalog.  Like I said something old with something new.  The Champagne Glimmer Paper is  from the current catalog. Finally some stick on numbers from my scrapbooking supplies.   Turned out great.  It is a 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 square card — just for something different.  HAPPY NEW’S YEAR!

Truely Grateful

Today I am grateful for the wonderful things in my life.  I have a family that loves me.  Each member is important to me.  Thanks for great friends and community members.  With November just around the corner, I start to think about blessings in my life and I have started making my fall/November cards to send to those I am am thankful for.  I will  have a lot to make but I have a good start already.  Here is my share for today.  Check back for more.

This uses the Autumn Accent Die and three different embossing folders.  The polka dot, chevron, and the woodgrain.  This gives the leaves such fun texture.  Check out that burlap ribbon!  This is perfect for fall.  The button is the very vintage button on page 169 of the catalog – just add the linen thread and a glue dot.  The designer paper is from the new Sweater Weather paper series from the Holiday Catalog.  I fell in love with this paper when I saw it.  It will be perfect for my fall cards and projects and what I don’t use will work for those masculine cards.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set Truely Thankful out of the Holiday Catalog as well.  If you don’t have a Holiday Catalog and would like one, contact me and I will get you one, or you can see it on-line.

Fall Already!

It is definitely fall and possibly winter in our part of the world as the white stuff fell yesterday.  Didn’t quite cover the ground but the mountains got it.  It was very pretty but not so sure I am ready for it yet.  I have some fun fall cards that I have made to share with you .  Can’t say I can take the credit as they were found on-line, but I love making them just the same.

I used the Autumn Accent die to create a stencil and I sponged it with Crushed Curry and some Cajun Craze and then stamped it using the new “Truely Thankful” stamp set and the Expression Thinlits dies from the new Holiday Catalog.  Look at the fun candy dots in matching colors in the upper right corner.  These are so easy to use.  Just stick them on.

Paper Pumpkin

Once upon a time there was a girl who needed a creative escape.

She didn’t have time to create,
she didn’t know what to create,
she didn’t want to buy a lot of stuff.

Christmas Tree Scentsational Style

I can’t help but copy and idea from some of the  wonderful stampers out there.  This one was re-created from Ann Marie Hile.  It used a whole lot of the fun products I have purchased.  I  love it. You can create it too or use it to inspire you to create something fabulous.

This was created using the gorgeous Be of Good Cheer DSP  and Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler Card stock from the big catalog and the Wonderful Cherry Cobbler Seam binding ribbon for the bow.  This stuff ties so beautifully.  With Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler you have a winning combination of Christmas colors.  I used  the Basic Rhinestones and Pearls to decorate my tree.  Just color your pearls with permanent marker in red.  The Tree was stamped using the Scentsational Season stamp set and cut out with the matching framelit dies using my Big Shot.  I also used my Big Shot to texture the white background using the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder after I cut it out using the new Window Frames die in the Holiday Catalog.  The Window Frames die is a set of six different sizes that can be layered.  I then used the Festive Paper Piercing Pack to punch the outline on my layer.  The Champane glimmer paper star was cut using the framelit from the same Scentsational Season framelit set. My framelit is a retired stamp but there are many to choose from in the current catalog that would work well.  It is layered onto the card using the word window and modern label punches.

Keep stamping my friends and creating fun.

 

French Follage Get Well

I created this card and it came in handy for a friend that just had surgery.  I put it in the mail to her today — I hope she likes it.

This was made using Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, and Tangerine Tango. The new Apothecary framelet and large oval punch made the perfect thing for the sentiment which came from the stampset called Perfectly Penned.

 

Free Digital Scrapbooking Downloads

Okay, okay, I have been off the blog for quite some time but I am ready to get going again.  I have been busy making all sorts of fall and holiday items.  Since October and Halloween are over, I guess I’ll skip posting those things and go right into my fall and Christmas items. 

I just held a fantastic workshop and sold all sorts of fun items to customers.  So to say thanks I am sending each one a handmade thankyou card they can pass on to someone else.  Hope they enjoy them.  I will share them with you  this week and maybe you will have some inspiration to make some of your own.  

Here is the first one I want to show you.

This one was fun to make but took me awhile and a bit of thinking before I felt like I could say it was done.  I started with Pear Pizazz CS.  Took a piece of my Spice Cake DSP which I had embossed with the Square Lattice folder and sponge the edges andplaced that on the card base.  I used the Gently Falling Leaves stampset to create my design and did some Rock and Roll stamping (which I taught at the workshop) to get alot of color on the leaves.  The Ribbon is the Pear Pizazz seam binding ribbon.  I used one of the new Spice Cake buttons to create a frame for my sentiment which I stamped using the Petite Pairs Stamp set.  I added some bling and called this card complete.  It turned out so pretty.  Mostly I was stamp happy as I had come up with the design myself.

Fabulous Touch of Kindness

Nicole used the retiring stampset Fast and Fabulous in the back ground.  She was anxious to try it with some of the new colors that just came out.  She used Calypso Coral and Wisteria Wonder over the images stamped in Black ink.  Then taking the Touch of Kindness stampset, she stamped the bird bath and little birds.  She used the little “hello” sentiment and framed it in Calypso Coral and added some Daffodil delight ribbon.  She is really learning to make some cute cards.

Stop by again and have a great day!

Touch of Kindness 3 X 3′s

I created some more of the little 3X3 cards.  I think these are so much fun to make.  I used a stampset from the summer 2011 mini catalog.  This is such a fun set and to me it is all about summer and cuteness.  This is only available until August 31 and so if you are thinking you like it, get it soon.

These cards are made using the new in-colors – Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder along with Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango and Whisper White.  First I stamped the cards with my black ink and then I stamped the flower petals, the bird bath, and the cat on colored cardstock and cut them out and glued them over the matching details on each of the cards.  Then using ribbon punch I punch out some coordinating “ribbon” from cardstock and cut it in half to make just a small row of scallops across the front of each card.  The sentiments also came from this same stamp set.  So with one stampset, three colors, a punch, a few markers and a black stamp pad some very cute cards can be created. 

Tomorrow I will show you the card my daughter Nicole created using this same stamp set.  So very cute.

July Patriotism

I made this card today with a wheel stamp that is retired and I can’t even remember the name of it.  I wanted to show it to you because it is very simple but turned out so nice.  I love July and showing my patriotism through art.  This country means so much to me. 

All I did to make this card is roll the top with versa mark, emboss with gold embossing powder, and then tie some real red satin 5/8″ ribbon around some Night of Navy Card Stock and put it on a Real Red Card base.  The wheel stamps make some really fun and simple cards or backgrounds.  Try one today.  Thanks for stopping by.
