I love both these sets, page 17 & 33 of the HC.  In addition, I fussy cut the little reindeer from the DSP, Home for Christmas, page 9.  They are so stinkin’ cute!   The tree was cut out with the matching framelits from Perfect Pines framelits, page 16.  I also used the bling, Winter Wonderland, page 23 of the HC.

I was short this year and had to make up some more cards at the last minute and this was one of them.  Usually, I have so many samples from my card making classes and clubs that I don’t need to.  I generally send them to people out of town but I noticed that a lot of people no longer send Christmas cards.
I get a lot of email type cards.  I am sure you know the kind.  Where you click on it and it brings you to a singing card or a beautiful Christmas card online.  That is not good for business.LOL  I will keep making and sending cards for as long as I can.  I think it is extra special for someone to go to the mail box and find a hand written card.  It takes a lot more effort to create a card and means so much more to the recipient, don’t you agree?

I used the Star embossing folder on the back ground and the beautiful gold cording trim, page 24 of the HC.  In addition, I used the vellum Winter Wonderland paper stack, page 23, in back of the tree.  The stamp set, Peaceful Pines, page 17 ,with the matching dies.  Colors are Whisper White and Lost Lagoon.

My WA ladies & Gentlemen asked me to make a card for our Instructor for Christmas.  They usually take up a collection for her and they knew I was a card maker.  So this is what I made for her.  It is a 5″X7″ because we need enough room for all to sign the card.  We usually present it to her at our Christmas Party held at Alhambra Hall every year!  Hope y’all like it!  AND.. in case you are wondering, no one that I do WA with knows about my blog so she will not see this. LOL

The background is a watercolor wash of Night of Navy and Marina Mist on Shimmery paper.  I used the DSP, Home for Christmas, page 9 and  Season of Cheer, page 29 of the Holiday Catalog.  The Three Wise men (stamp set All Ye Faithful), page 20 of the HC, were colored using classic ink with an aqua pen on watercolor paper which I then fussy cut out.

09. November 2015 · Comments Off on Nutcracker shaker card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

This card was made with the stamp set Sparkly seasons, page 40 of the HC.  The DSP is Season of Cheer, page 29.  I used Mossy Meadow for the card base and fussy cut the pointsettia.

08. November 2015 · Comments Off on Hello Santa! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I think this is the cutest ever.  I love the little Santa peeking in the window.  This is another card we made at our Wednesday club and everyone loved it.  The Santa was fussy cut from the DSP Home for Christmas, page 9 of the HC.  It is the best DSP that SU has ever designed for the Holidays.  These little Santas and the little reindeer are all over the internet.  Now the background trees are from the DSP, Season of Cheer, page 29.  The wall paper is from our gorgeous DSP in color.  The sentiment is from the set, Oh, What Fun, page 5 and the window was cut with the die Hearth and Home, page 11.

07. November 2015 · Comments Off on Season of Cheer · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I just love the DSP from our Holiday catalog.  The background paper is from Season of Cheer, page 29 so is the pointsettia that I fussy cut.  I used the Embossing Folder, Softly Falling, page 24 and the sentiment is from the Hostess set Six Sayings, page 51.  Hope you like it.

06. November 2015 · Comments Off on Window card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

We made this card at our Wednesday morning club class.  I used the Season of Cheer DSP, page 29 of the HC and the stamp set is Sparkly Seasons, page 40.  I outlined the window with our Silver glimmer paper and used Cherry Cobbler ink on the Snowman’s hat and scarf.  I hilighted the snow and the snowman with Soft sky ink.

02. November 2015 · Comments Off on White Birch Trees · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

The thing I loved about upstate NY were the beautiful white Birch trees.  I remember one day years ago when I was golfing, that a huge branch fell off one of the trees on the golf course and I remember dragging it off and bringing it home.  My husband sawed it into four pieces and I still have them.  I decorate the fireplace with them every year when we are not using it.  They are still beautiful, and I am so thankful that no one has tried to use them for fire wood.  I would, of course, be crushed if that ever happened and needless to say I would have to hurt the person who did that. LOL

When I first saw this embossing folder, Woodland Textured, page 30 AC, that is what inspired me to design this card with white birch trees.  Although, I suppose you could use it for any type trees just by changing the color.  I brayered the background of the folder with Pacific Point ink which left the trees white.  I used the set Among the Branches, same page, for the sentiment.  That can also be bundled for a 15% off deal.  The little Silver foil ornaments were cut out with the Perfect Pines Framelits, page 16.

This set is so versatile, page 40 of the AC.  It can also be bundle with the Thinlits dies to save 15%.  Although it shows mostly Halloween and Christmas, think about using this with a bunny in it for Easter, or a beach globe with sand and sea.

29. October 2015 · Comments Off on Snow Way, this set is awesome! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

These little guys are so cute and this set, Snow Place, page 33 of the HC, has tons of embellishments to use with them.  The most amazing thing about this set is that it comes with matching Framelits dies.  To top it off there are sentiments included plus you get 15% if you bundle both.  You certainly get your moneys worth from this one.  I used the embossing folder, Brick Wall, page 174 of the AC and the white gel pen to highlight the bricks.  Hope you like it!

28. October 2015 · Comments Off on Another camp card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

I love these little snowflake wooden elements, page 23 HC,  because you can do so much with them.  I embossed this snow flake with silver embossing powder and added silver cording, page 24.  The stamp set is All Ye Faithful, page 20 and that I embossed in white on watercolor paper that I had colored washed.  I backed it with Silver glimmer paper, page 149 of the AC.  The card front is white corrugated paper, page 148 of the AC which I cut out using our Oval Collection Framelits, page 173 of the AC.

26. October 2015 · Comments Off on Camp Card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

This is one of the cards we made at Saturday’s camp.  I used the DSP from both Home for Christmas (pg9, HC) and Season of Cheer (pg29).  I embossed the gold foil paper with the Embossing Folder Boho Chic (pg 174 AC).  The ribbon is from the beautiful gold and white Glitter ribbon (pg 29) and it is tied with our Gold Cording (pg 24).  The image is from the set, Christmas Cuties, page 19.  I used the Metalics Assortment Sequins, pg 160 of the AC.

22. October 2015 · Comments Off on Another Club card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

Love this stamp set, Christmas Cuties, page 19 of the HC.  I brayered the Embossing Folder, Woodland Textured Impressions, page 39, with Lost Lagoon ink on Whisper White Card Stock.  The sentiment is from, Oh, What Fun, page 5.  I think the little guy in front is the bomb, and so stinkin’ cute!

21. October 2015 · Comments Off on We made this card at Hostess Club · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

Our Friday night group made this card along with others and they really liked it.  So easy to put together.  I used red foil paper and the Delicate ornament thinlits die, page 15 of the HC.  The DSP is Season of Cheer, page 29, one of my favorite Holiday papers.   I used the gold cording trim, page 24, which is the best ever for tying bows.  Love it!

19. October 2015 · Comments Off on For all occasions · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

I copied this card from one of our Resources through SU, but I changed the sentiment and added embellishments.  It was displayed as a birthday card sent to me in an email.  The idea was that this DSP, Season of Cheer (page 29 of the HC), although, I used it as a Christmas card, it could also be used a birthday or Celebrate card.  Don’t you agree?

18. October 2015 · Comments Off on Ornament Thinlits · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

I used the stamp set, Embellished Ornaments, page 15 HC, with the matching Thinlit dies for this card.  You can buy this as a bundle and save 15%.  I used the red foil sheets, page 26 of the HC, and the Brights Sequins, page 160, of the AC.  This is a great set complete with sentiments for both front of the card and inside.

15. October 2015 · Comments Off on All Ye Faithful · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

That is the name of this stamp set, page 20 of the HC.  I used classic ink from the pads to watercolor the image and then cut out the images with the Square Collections Framelits, page 173 of the AC.  I border the image with our gold foil paper, page 148.  I used Lost Lagoon, and Pool Party for my paper.

01. October 2015 · Comments Off on Watercolor Wash · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

This card was created using the background stamp, Watercolor Wash page 129 of the AC.  In addition, from the Holiday Catalog, the set Reason for the Season, page 31 has both the images and the sentiment.  This is a great set if you like 2 step stamping, but it can also be used alone, as on this card.  It’s hard to tell by my photo but I did use Crystal Effect on the pointsettia, which was colored with Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow.

These Edgelits will knock the top of your head off!  They are so awesome!  There is a stamp set that SU has paired with them but I didn’t use any stamp other than Six Sayings, the Hostess set, on page 51 of the HC.  I punched out the star from Silver Glimmer paper with our Itty Bitty Accents punch, page 166 of the AC.  I use white ink to splatter the sky and I added the silver sequins to hide a blunder. LOL

25. September 2015 · Comments Off on Watercolor Card · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

I love this set from the HC, page 20 and I used watercolor paper with our classic ink pads and a aqua brush, page 163 of the AC.  I used the Mosaic Embossing Folder, page 174 AC on our gold foil paper.   I used the framelits, Lots of Labels, page 173, AC and layered them on dimenionals.  Colors I used are Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Crushed curry and Soft Suede.

23. September 2015 · Comments Off on Sleigh Ride Edgelits · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

The only stamp I used on this card is from the set Over the Rainbow, page 21 of the AC.  That would be the Moon.  The background is Night Of Navy card stock and I used the Trees edgelit, page 12 from the HC.  The base card is our new heavy Whisper White.  OOPS! Sorry, I was wrong, the sentiment is from the Hostess set, Six Sayings, page 51 of the HC.

17. September 2015 · Comments Off on Red Foil Beauty · Categories: 3D Items · Tags: , ,

I used the Festive Flower punch, page 31 HC, to punch out the petals on the red foil paper, page 26 HC, the green leaves were stamped with Reason for the Season set on page 31 of the HC.  I used the stylus to score the petals and gold foil paper for the center of the poinsettia.  The sentiment is from Seasonal Fame Thinlits, page 40, HC.  I really like this against the Mint Macaron card stock, don’t you?

04. September 2015 · Comments Off on Peaceful Pines · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

On page 17 in the HC you will find this beautiful set of trees. Perfect Pines Framelits dies were used to cut out the trees.  This is a bundle also so if you want both you save 15%.
In addition there are also lovely sentiments and embellishments that you can decorate your trees with.  I left these plain in the background but I love the tree with the sentiment in front.  You will again be surprised to find that these little bambi’s were not stamped but cut out from the DSP, Home for Christmas, page 9.  I used whisper white card stock to stamp the trees and place the images on and the back ground DSP is also from the same DSP set.  I used Dazzling Diamonds to highlight the snow in front.  Aren’t these little guys so stinkin’ cute?
