Elegant Christmas


Hello! I have another Christmas card to share with you today, I LOVE how this one turned out!! I cut out my poinsettia and added some greens and popped it up with foam tape. I added pearls to the center and added some sparkle with my Sakura Stardust clear glitter pen. I never seem to be able to get the sparkle to show in my pictures though. I placed it on top of a strip of metallic silver CS that was covered with Lace and ribbon. I added more silver pearls to the centers of the diamonds on my CB'd background. Guess that about covers it, thanks for stopping by and have a Wonderful New Year!!

Blue Christmas


Hello!! Can you believe it is only 9 more days till Christmas?? Where has the time went? I have most of my shopping done but haven't wrapped a thing! Hoping to bake some cookies on Saturday if it suits my Mom to come over. We like to do the old fashioned sand tarts. Takes alot of work but they are fun to decorate and taste good too!

Today's card uses the December Poinsettia digi from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! It is also available in a stamp set. I Love seeing all the variety of colors they have the Poinsettias in now. I can't actually have a real one cause they are toxic for my fur babies plus I would probably kill it anyway!! No green thumb here, I've almost killed my Christmas Catus several times!!! ;0)

I kept my card CAS and went with Blue for a more non traditional card. I used my Sakura clear glitter pen on my flowers/leaves and finished it off with tiny silver pearls. With the glitter pen and metallic cardstock it has a nice little sparkle. Thanks for stopping by!

Deck the Halls....


...with boughs of Holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. Hello! Thats one of the Songs that comes to mind when I look at this card, the other one is "Hark the Herald Angels sing"! I've had some of the adorable Lili if the Valley stamps for awhile now and finally took time to play with one of them. Isn't this just the cutest little angel??!!

I found this pretty paper at Hobby Lobby and thought it fit perfectly! I sponged Tim Holtz Distress inks around my image to give it a more vintage look. I used some old lace I've had laying around to make a bow and added a paper poinsettia with a large pearl brad in the center on top. I'm Lovin this card!

An Apple for Cocoa


Hello! I meant to get this card posted yesterday but time just got away from me, seems to be happening alot here of late! Can you believe that Christmas is only about 2 1/2 weeks away??! Need to finish up the last couple of Christmas cards and get them mailed this week!

Posy Patch Creation


Hello! Well I finally took the plunge and played with my Heartfelt Creations stamps that I bought back in Oct at the stamp show in York PA! The challenge over at Joan's Garden helped get me motivated! They have a awesome prize package sponsered by Heartfelt Creations in honor of their 25th challenge!

I LOVE the cards I see made with these stamps, all the layers and dimension you can get with them. I guess I've been kinda intimidated by them, afraid I won't do them justice maybe?? Anyway after MANY hours and going WAY outside my comfort zone, I have finished my card and I'm very pleased with it!!

I took a paper doily and sponged it softly to better match my colors. I really like the look/feel it adds to the card. I used one of my vintage hat pins that I've been hoarding, I came across them the other summer at a yard sale! I added a few beads, stuck it thru my lace an added a pretty bow(that I made with my Bow-Easy, Love that thing!). The flowers are cut out and popped up at several different levels to give it lots of dimension. I added different size pearls to all the flower centers. I finished it off with 2 of my own crocheted butterflies. I added a little trail of pearls to each one.

I have decided that I will give this card to my Mom for Mother's Day! She LOVES flowers and she is the one who taught me to crochet and I think it will make her smile! She doesn't use computers so I know I can keep her from seeing this! I just need to keep it hidden here at home for when she stops by.

Well thanks for stopping by, sorry for the long post today! The list of challenges this is for and all the supplies used is listed below. Please let me know what you think of the card! I may even start working on another one now that I have the first one under my belt!! LOL :0)

Smiley Snowman


Hello! I wanted to get this card posted earlier but with the blog hop Tue and then my Mom calling yesterday wanting to go Christmas shopping it never happened! I didn't get much accomplished with my shopping but I helped Mom get a good start on hers. I'm sure not much in the Christmas spirit yet?? Maybe it's just that we've had such a warm fall and it doesn't look or even feel like it's almost Christmas??!! I haven't even come up with my Christmas card yet for this year!

On with my card, I have once again used the adorable snowman from the Welcome Jesus set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Everytime I see him he makes me smile! He is also available as a digi. I tore some white CS and coated the edges with Stickles to make my snowdrifts. I also added some stickles around the edges of the snowman. I added some rhinestones to my big snowflake and also to some of the snowflake centers on my embossed BG piece. This card really sparkles!!! List of challenges and supplies used is below.

Embossed Pumpkin


Hello! Today I have another CAS card to share with you. I almost didn't use any stamps on my card but the back panel looked a little plain to me so I went with a weathered background stamp to match the squares of DP. The pumpkin was made with the SU small oval punch then ran thru the CB before assembling. The center oval is raised up for some dimension. I hand cut a little stem and then added the button cause I thought it could use a little something else??!! I softly sponged around everything with Really Rust ink to give it a more distressed look. I'm happy with how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by!!

Snow Bear


Hello! Found a few challenges that I could combine for a Christmas/winter card today! Had a hard time getting a decent picture of it though, it's very overcast here today. My card is really sparkly, I used lots of stickles for the snow. Since I wanted to use stickles I had to use versafine ink seems if I use memento that the stickles makes the lines run/blur?? Anyone else notice that problem when using stickles?? Anyway since I used versafine I used my Prisma color pencils on my image and dug out my chalks to color my sky. I added some glossy accent to the bears nose and buttons. It turned out really cute!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Goodbye Summer


Hello! Well since today is the last day of summer I thought I'd make a summery card. It sure is a warm day here, near 90! Found several challenges using punches this week, gave me a chance to use my new Daisy chain punch, LOVE this punch! I also used another new embossing folder from the craft show I was at the other weekend. This one is by Crafts-Too also and called Butterflies, Love it! It gives a clear and deep embossed image, I even like the depossed side. I have one more new one from them to try yet. This card also uses my much neglected Prisma colored pencils, since I've discovered Copics they don't get used very often. I do like the softness of them on this card though, guess I need to use them more often! Challenges and supplies used is listed below. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this last day of summer!!

I highlighted the snowman and snowflakes with my Sakura clear glitter pen, it's sparkly but hard to get it to show in the photo.

Be my Friend


Hello! Taking a little break from Fall cards today! A friend stamped me some of these sentiments to play with, Thanks Stacy!! It kinda reminds me of the footprints in the sand sentiment so I went with a beach theme for my card. I picked up this roll of blue crafting mesh at a yard sale this summer for something like .10, now I need to come up with some more ideas to use it! I'm thinking maybe some lighthouse or boat cards too?? The white background piece was embossed with my impressabilities sea scape die. I softly sponged around the shell punced border and raised up the panel with some foam tape. Thanks for stopping by!!
