Christmas shopping

I was planning another card for the friend I created this for, but one of the items I needed is on back order so I did something else.The tree is embossed with one of my all time go to sets, Lovely As A Tree. The bags are stamped from the All About the Label set. I cut off the tops, added ribbon for the handles and little wads of tissue. I then folded the edge over and mounted to the card with Dimensionals.

Have a great day and thanks so much for visiting!

Fall Blessings

This is such a simple card to create and I think it is also very elegant. Pull out your designer papers and different shaped thinlits and give it a try. I used the circle thinlits, my oval punches, and one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Lovely As A Tree. I colored the tree stamp with markers, gave it a huff and stamped on Natural White cardstock. For the polka dot piece and mat, I cut out a rectangle, then used a circle punch to create the corners. The sentiment is place on dimensionals and I attached a bow created from linen thread, doubled. I even repeated the designer papers on the inside of the card.

Baby, it is COLD out side!! We have a ground cover of snow from yesterday and it has been snowing all day. I don't mind that, but the high today has only been 8 degrees and that doesn't factor in the wind chill, which is possible to be -25 overnight!!!

So here is a card that I think fits with the weather and the week we are having!

This card is using the Card Thinlits Die on page 22 of the holiday catalog. The only other thing I used was the cardstock and the sentiment from the Mingle All the Way stamp set, also in the holiday catalog, page 17. All the other pieces are include in the die! I also added a bit of Dazzling Details to sparkle things up a bit!

Hope you are staying warm and having a great day! Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

Mingle all the way

Okay, so Halloween is over but that doesn't mean that I won't be posting more of those items. After all, there is always next year :) !

But, for today, we will start on Christmas, which is coming up really fast! I have several to create for a family member, so have been working on those before starting on my Thanksgiving cards.

This card is one that I "case"d (copy and share everything). I don't remember who gave me the idea and as usual with a lot of my creations, I have used their idea with my own spin. That is what this crafting community is all about.

I LOVE this sentiment set which is called "Mingle All the Way" and is shown in the Holiday catalog. It covers several of the holidays and works well inside the card as well as outside. Check it out along with the other great items. Just click on my SU site button and have fun shopping!! Don't forget, with a qualifying order of at least $150, you all qualify for FREE hostess benefits!!!! Place an order and leave contact information to receive a thank you card in the mail from me.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!!

Halloween bookmark

I created this bookmark to share with the first graders during their party this afternoon. I actually put the pieces in a cellophane bag as a kit, including a picture of the completed bookmark. That way if they don't have time to create it at the party, they can take it home and make it.

I have one more card for the holiday that I wanted to share and wish everyone a Happy Halloween with:

This one is created mostly with retired products, but I hope you can and will use it to inspire you. Use it as a map to create with what you have in your stash. The sentiment was actually just a scrap piece of cardstock that I stamped on, then realized it wasn't large enough to punch out, so I just punched the best I could, which gave me this unique shape. I thought it worked great for the card and season.

Have a really great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN and be safe!

Little Girl Witch

I know it is getting close, but I had to create one more card for the holiday. Unfortunately, this card  is from retired items, but I couldn't resist sharing. A lot of my ideas come from something that I have to change the image because I don't have that particular stamp. So I hope that this will do that for you. Use it as a card map to create your own project.

The girl on the pumpkin is on dimensionals, then I cut out another girl and did the same with her on top of the original image.

This is what I did for the inside.

Hope this inspires you to create today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
