O Christmas Tree

 

I was inspired by this card by Debbie Olson, and decided to make a Stampin’ Up version.  Oh, how I love this cute little tree!

Hope you had a fun Halloween last night!  Here’s a pick of one of my two trick or treaters.  This year my oldest child decided he is too old to go.  That makes me sad (and it makes me feel old  :))!

A Pinecone CASE

I tend to get my inspiration from lots of sources — magazines, catalogs, clothing, etc…  But one of the main ways I find inspiration is from other stampers.  When I saw this card made by Dawn McVey, I knew I wanted to make a Stampin’ Up! version of her card.  And since I just got the Watercolor Winter set, I knew just what to do.

Well, it will be a busy Saturday here.  Lots of birthday activities going on in our house.  Fun times!  Enjoy your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Watercolor Winter, Greetings of the Season
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Festival of Prints dsp stack
Embellishments:  Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Naturals Designer Buttons, Linen Thread

A Tag Christmas Card

These Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags in the Holiday Catalog may have been designed to be used as tags, but I think they work great on cards too.  This is a super easy card, which would have been even easier if I hadn’t added the stitching around the edges.  I just stamped the sentiment on the tag and popped the tag up with dimensionals.  I just love the font of this sentiment, and wanted it to be the focus of this card.

Well, I’m so glad it’s Saturday!  Hopefully, I will get some crafting time in today in between the many loads of laundry that I need to do.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:

Noel Village

The little homes on this Christmas paper from the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper are so cute.  I wanted them to be the star of the show on this card, so I just added a banner for the sentiment and added some paper piercing to dress things up a bit.  This was a super easy card with very little actual stamping.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Vanilla Peace

This is a card I made for a swap I participated in this past weekend.  I used two framelits to make the frame — using the larger framelit to cut the card stock, and then placing the smaller framelit on top of the die cut I just cut out to make the frame.  I then pierced the frame using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and placed it on the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the card base before adhering the frame.  I used the Big Shot a lot for this card — what would I do without that thing?

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Scentsational Season, Greetings of the Season
Ink:  Real Red, Gumball Green, More Mustard, Early Espresso
Paper:  Very Vanilla
Embellishments:  Labels Collection framelits, Holiday Collection framelits, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Pearl Basics Jewels, Delicate Designs folders, Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon

Patchwork Peace on Earth

Here’s another Christmas card I made with the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper stack.  I pulled out my sewing machine and used it on this card.  Don’t look closely — my zig-zag stitch wasn’t working right and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it.  It was probably malfunctioning from lack of use.  🙂

I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  My kids have the day off from school today so we are planning on going to the State Fair if my little one is feeling better.  She has been sick over the weekend.

Have a good Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Glittery Noel

I’ve been playing around with the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack today.  There are some really pretty papers in there.  Here’s a card where I really let the focus be on the paper rather than the stamping.  However, I do think this stamped sentiment is gorgeous.  I love the fonts used in this stamp set.  I added a snowflake made with the champagne glitter paper for a little sparkle.  Overall, it’s a simple card.

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Simple Double-Challenge Christmas Card

I knew I wanted to participate in the sketch challenge over at the Retro Sketches site this week because the sketch is very simple, yet unique.

Then when I saw the fun tic-tac-toe challenge over at the Paper Players, I knew what I wanted to do with this sketch — make a blue & red Christmas card with buttons.

I love all of the stamps in the sentiment set, Greetings of the Season.  So I picked one and made that the focus of my card.  It was an easy Christmas card.

Have a great week!  Thanks for stopping by!
