This card we made at our Wednesday morning club.  The set, Christmas Magic, is the perfect set to add to your collection.  It has beautiful images and wonderful sentiments.  If you have been keeping track, I have used it several times in my blog.  I think I will certainly get my money’s worth on this one.

I did the sky on Whisper White card stock, in Dapper Denin, and splattered white craft ink refill, page 180 of the AC, mixed with a little water using a paint brush.  The sentiment is a banner cut out and held with our Bow Paper Clip embellishments found on page 177 in the AC.  I used Marina Mist to highlight the snow drifts, and used a blender pen, to color the images with our classic inks.

I love this set because it is so vintage looking.  IN this card I used a monochromatic technique which requires different shades of one color.  Here I selected the brown family using Tip Top taupe, crumb cake and soft suede.  The image is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.  The set can be found on page 22 of the HC.

I painted this tree, from Santa’s Sleigh, on water color paper and then cut it out with the matching Thinlits dies, page 24 of the HC.  Tha Santa was stamped from the set Cookie Cutter Christmas, also on water color paper, and cut out with the matching punch, page 6 of the HC.

I used the negative piece of the cut out tree as a stencil, and sponged the tree on the card front.  I then, popped up with dimensionals, the cut tree and laid it on top of the stenciled image.  The sentiment is from the set Reason for the season, page 34 of the AC.   I thought it needed a little something so I added the Brights Sequins, page 177 in the AC.  It sounds like a lot of work but it was pretty simple.  What do you think?

Don’t you just love this DSP, Candy Cane Lane, page 5 of the HC?  I love the colors red, white and brown together.  It is so country.  You can do so much with this DSP, like cutting the images out and using them separately on a card or a gingerbread house.  The trees are from a set that we carried over from last year, Peaceful Pines, page 28 of the AC with the matching dies, Perfect Pines, page 192, same catalog.  I white embossed the trees on Early Espresso Card Stock.  Fun card.

22. September 2016 · Comments Off on Winter some where but not here! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

Living in South Carolina, we hardly get any fall, let alone winter.  However, I am not a stranger to snow.  Growing up in Syracuse, NY, we had the most unbelievable winter snow storms that when I finally left for the sunny south, I said I didn’t care if I ever saw snow again.

We moved to Atlanta and saw snow the first year there and then we moved here and saw the first snow again the winter after Hurricane Hugo hit. Of course, down here it is gone almost as soon as it hits the ground.  Although, I must admit sometimes it gets so cold down here (30’s) that I feel I should maybe move farther south.  My blood has certainly thinned. LOL

The background of this card is on watercolor paper washed with, Pacific Point, Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise and Pool party.  The deer and trees are cut with the Framelit dies Merry Tags found on page 21 of the HC.  The snow is made with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, page 175 of the AC.  The sentiment is from the set Snow place, also from the AC on page 30.  The snow is splattered with a paint brush covered with a mixture of Whisper White craft Ink and water.

Card base is Pumpkin Pie CS.

Well maybe not, but this is sure an old fashion train decorated for the Holidays.  The stamp set used on this card is from the Holiday catalog.    Christmas Wishes on page 22 is so versatile.  What’s great about this set is all the lovely images and great sentiments.  I will get a lot of different cards out of this set.

I stamped the train with black archival ink on watercolor paper. I made a palette with our inks and used the aqua painter to color it.  Although, the North Pole sign is not on watercolor paper, I did the same here trying not to wet the whisper white paper very much.

I cut out the window with Lots of Labels Framelits, page 193 of the AC and added our foam adhesive strips, page 182, to pop up the window.  In addition, I used Soft Sky on the front of the card.

Every now and then I like to do a clean and simple (CAS) card.  This stamp set, Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53 of the HC, fits the bill for CAS.  Here I used the little scarecrow and colored him with our markers, and punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch, page 6 of the HC .  For the background I used the set Gorgeous Grunge, page 123 of the AC.  In addition, also from the AC, the sentiment is from the set Endless Thanks, page 42.  Hope you like it!

It’s a funny thing about Halloween cards.  I love to make them but I rarely send them except to little ones.  They are so much fun to put together and I always end up with a ton of unsent cards so if you need some let me know.  I also have friends that do not celebrate this Holiday so they are not interested in making Halloween cards.

This card is made with the stamp sets Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53, Jar of Haunts, page 55, and Ghoulish Grunge, page 52 of the HC.  I just love the little spiders, they are so stinkin’ cute!  If you love Halloween and making cards you will be in love with everything SU put together in this HC.  So much to pick from being scary to being cute and funny.

I love these little guys from the Cookie Cutter Halloween set on page 53.  They also go with the punch on page 6, both in the HC.  Here I used the leaves from the stamp set, Vintage Leaves, page 37 in the AC.  I used the In-color DSP Delightful Dijon page, 169 in the AC.  In addition, I used the Ghoulish Grunge stamp for the background.  This set can be found on page 52 of the HC.  Love this set and hope they carry it over after the Holidays.

Hey Stampers, so sorry you have not heard from me in a few days.  I have been sick but back to my old former self now, and starting to post daily again.  Sure hope you missed me because I missed you!

This project was made using the Stamp set Sweet Home and the Thinlits, page 40 of the HC.  It is almost like the sample on the same page except that I changed it around a little.  The DSP is Halloween Night Specialty on page 51.  Love this suite.  You can get a discount on the bundle if you buy both the set and thinlits together.
