Christmas Clean and Simple

I've shown a lot of 3-d things so thought I would share a few cards. This card was a swap I made waaaay back during convention and is a CAS card ( clean and simple). This card use the set Easy Events. The little red scallop peeking out along the edge is the dotted scallop ribbon border punch. I colored the holly in with my markers then added some iridescent ice to the red berries to give a little bit of sparkle! Happy Stamping!!

Giftable Class Project #6

This was the last project we created. The group of gals I stamp with have been wanting to learn how to make the box in the bag created by Diana Gibbs. So I came up this mini one for them to make. The were surprised in how easy and cute this is to make!! Which makes it perfect to make a bunch of them to hand out to friends or coworkers. We used the tree trimmings stamp set and boy does the glimmer paper really sparkles on this bag!! Happy Stamping!!

Giftable Class Project #4

Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you all get to spend time with Family and Friends today! And if you go shopping tonight be careful ...

This next project I got from my secret sister so I'm not sure who to credit with the original idea.

When I received it in the mail I knew I would be recreating it for this class! It's perfect for all those holiday gift cards we all give!! Just a super fun way to dress it up!! The girls at the class loved it!! Happy Stamping!!

Giftable Class Project #3

I didn't capture the best picture for this project but it is a rosette ornament. The black paper is actually the flocked grey and black piece from Mocha Morning DSP. It really gives them an elegant look to the ornament! We then layered it with a piece of whisper white cardstock I ran through my vintage wallpaper embossing folders. The image is from Merry & Type which I punched out with an oval punch and layered with a cardstock cut with the decorative label punch. We also added touches of glitter to the edges to really make it sparkle! Happy Stamping!

Giftable Class Project #2

This next project was rally simple to make but it's really cute. We used the small set of Merry Trees decor elements to decorate the mugs. You get 4 little trees and the word Merry that I'll be using on another project.

Once we had the mugs all done we added a few little goodies; cocoa, peppermint tea and some candy canes. These would be perfect to make for neighbors, friends or coworkers and they are pretty quick to put together! Happy Stamping!

Giftable Class Project #1

I had my annual giftables class this weekend and we had a ton of fun!! This was my favorite project we created for this event!! I got the idea for this from a Halloween version that I got from my big sis this round, I don't who she is yet but can't wait to find out out!! She did say she cased it from someone else and I think she said Wendy from Wickedly Wonderful Creations. We used paper from the brights DSP pack as well as mocha morning DSP. The trees are the same trees from this project. Happy Stamping!!

ETA: I had a few questions about the frame. It's your standard frame at 8 1/2x11 Frame. This one had a premade inner frame so the actual picture part is 5x7. The original frame sent to me used up the 8 1/2x11 space and it looked great either way! Just make your squares to use more space. The letter I used were from Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies but if you make larger squares I would use the Serif Essentials Alphabet. I hope that helps!!

Friendly Tea

I made this card for a Friend to Friend swap I am doing with a yahoo group of friends. I have been busy making lotsa of Fall and Christmas cards it was nice to do something bright and cherry for a change! I used the set Morning Cup. The color combo on this card is Pretty in Pink and Rich Razzleberry ... one of my favorite colors combos! I used a bit of the dazzling details (iridescent glitter glue) on the tea pot and the flowers on the cup which gave it just the right amount of shimmer. I did color the image in with my markers and by sponging to give it the different shading. Happy Stamping!

Simple Pear

For this card I used the set Faith in Nature and for my color palette I used Pear Pizazz and Early Espresso. You can use any said of brown for a perfect accent to any color. I used my markers to get the two different colors on the main image. I also pulled from my stash the corduroy buttons though they are not the same shade they blended in perfectly! Happy Stamping!!

Faith in Nature

I love this card! I love the color combination but I also love all of the different elements to this card. I embossed the concord crush piece with my hounds-tooth folder inked with elegant eggplant to get the two toned effect. The pear was inked with clear embossing powder then I sponged over it old olive and early espresso. The vanilla piece I ran through my crimper before I pleated it to the card ... it gave it a really cool effect! Lots of detail but lots of fun! Hope you like it as much as I do! Happy Stamping!

Fall Where?

Well it's officially winter here I think we only had one week of fall here before it started snowing! I was hoping for a much longer fall season! Here's a card I made for a friend. It uses the gently falling set from the current mini. I got this color combo from the handy dandy color coach ... I don't think I would have normally put these colors together but they sure are pretty! I water colored the leave with my water color crayons and then added the gold shimmerry color with smooch pearlized ink ( I forget to use those) it adds a nice golden sheen! Happy Stamping!

ETA: I had a couple of questions on the color palette and they are Pear Pizzaz, More Mustard and Cajun Craze.

Top Note Holder

This was another swap I haven't shared back from convention. It's a top note box holder. I love this little holder and it's really easy to make. Just cut out a couple of top notes and a scallop circle with your big shot and band them together with a strip of card stock. I decorate it with the vintage wallpaper EF and cut out a flower with the blossom party die and a flower from the raining flowers set. They went together really quick!! I filled these up with a bag of pretzels. It's a perfect little gift for friends or neighbors! Happy Stamping!

Gently Falling

This was another swap card I made ... I've been swapping a lot more than I usually do! This one uses Gently Falling as well as the last card I shared. This one I lightened the tone up a bit by using Garden Green and Cajun Craze. It's kind of hard to see but if you look closely to the picture on the left you can see the Cajun Leave is puffed up a bit. To do this I ran my stylus along the leaf image from the back side and then used dimensional underneath to keep it pouf. I also watercolored the leaves with my water color crayons and more shimmer paint! I sure do love that stuff! Happy Stamping!

Holiday Wraps

Here is a swap card I made using the sets It's a Wrap Holidays and Gently Falling. I really like the combination of these two sets together. I like to use darker richer tones when making most of my falls cards and this one is definitely along those lines. I stamp the give thanks three times and then made some leaves to accent over two of them. I stamped the leaves and then used my water colors crayons to add more color and then of course watercolored some shimmer paint over to give them some sheen. Happy Stamping!
