A Merry Little Wish…

It is always fun for me to make and send Christmas cards but this year’s card I had a particularly great time making it.  I love the Get Your Santa On stamp set and I love photo frames so it was great to put the two together.  This year I even had my husband, Kacy, helping out.  He was my paper cutter and did a fantastic job!  My favorite part of this project was coloring Santa.  First, I used my Jet Black StazOn to stamp the image onto Whisper White card stock.  After letting the ink dry I went back to color Santa’s suit red with the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.  I love the way he came out!

Season Greetings and Endless Wishes!

Let’s get the holiday season started with this Season Greetings card.  This card features the Endless Wishes stamp set.  I really like this stamp set because I love the snowflakes and the endless amount of sayings you can say with it.  I had a lot of fun adding the snowflakes to the whisper white card stock because I wasn’t trying to stamp the snowflakes perfectly or in the same spot.  I just had fun with it.  They were all generally in the same area but I put them where I felt like and some of them overlapped or where off the edge of the paper.  On top of some of the snowflakes I added my favorite embellishment, rhinestones!  I thought it brought that something extra special to them.

Awesome… THANKS!

Awesome Thanks!

Awesome Thanks!

Awesome Thanks!

Awesome Thanks!

Recently I have had to make a couple of thank you cards.  I designed this card and decided to mix it up by changing the colors the second time I made it.  The Eastern Elegance Designer Series paper is so beautiful I had a hard time choosing which paper to use.  By making the second card a different color scheme I was able to use more of the paper and it made it an easier decision.  I love how both cards came out!  I also made matching envelope liners for both cards.  I was very excited to make the liners because it was the first time I got to use the envelope liner framelits die!  I think that both of the recipients of these cards will really appreciate them and see how grateful I am.  To make these projects I used the following items: Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (131344-clear, 131341-wood); Envelope Liners Framelits Dies (132172); Chalk Talk Framelits (129983); Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (117335); Clear Embossing Powder (109130); Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (130131); Whisper White Cardstock (100730); Smoky Slate Cardstock (131202); Medium Envelopes – Whisper White (107301); Top Card only: Coastal Cabana Ink (131175) & Coastal Cabana Cardstock (131297) and Bottom Card only: Metallic Encore Pad – Silver (132142) & Crushed Curry Cardstock (131199)

Wahoo!  Look at this card!!!  This is September’s paper pumpkin kit.  You get enough supplies to make four cards and you get four envelopes as well.  This card was so much fun to make.  I love the Wahoo! stamp and the file folder it is on.  This card makes for a fun congratulations card to show someone special just how proud you are of them.

Hello, Lovely

Hello, Lovely

Hello, Lovely

This is my fourth (and sadly last) make and take from Convention.  The exciting thing about this card is it uses one of my favorite stamp sets – Hello, Lovely!  This card is so much fun and so easy because it doesn’t have to be perfect.  Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set is what makes the splatters on the card and that is something you can’t mess up!  This card has a nice mixture of masculine and feminine touches with the splatters and the vintage button.  For this card I used Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set; Hello, Lovely Stamp Set; Whisper White Cardstock; Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock; Coastal Cabana Core-dinations Cardstock; Silver Glimmer Paper; Bermuda Bay Ink Pad; Crisp Cantaloupe Ink Pad; Coastal Cabana Ink Pad; Old Olive Ink Pad; Summer Starfruit Ink Pad; Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker; Whisper White Baker’s Twine; Very Vintage Designer Button; 1-3/4″ Circle Punch; Designer Sanding Block; and Stamp-a-ma-jig.
