Snow Globe – Shaker Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend … Sunday turned out to be a beautiful fall day.

Today I want to share with you another retreat card … a shaker card! Our afternoon session include 3 cards that we created using the “Hearts Come Home” bundle. My mission was to show them how quick and easy you can create a shaker card.

Our background comes from the Merry Music Designer Specialty Paper. Using the Layering Circles Framelits dies, we cut 1 white and 1 window sheet from the same size circle. Then we took the scallop circle and the circle one size smaller that our precut circles, and layered them together before cutting to create our frame.

On the white circle, we stamped our house in Black and then our Santa in Smoky Slate. Our next step was to attach the foam adhesive strips to the outer edge of the white circle. Once applied, you can fill this with whatever you’d like … we used a large glitter and Red Glimmer hearts.

Once you have filled your “well” … remove the top layer off the adhesive strip and drop the window sheet over the top – press to seal. Next, we glued the frame onto the window sheet.

To create a snowglobe … I used the Everyday Label punch!! This is the punch that we used on the Merry Little Christmas Suite cards. Our  greeting was heat embossed in white and then the punch was aligned (1/2 way into the cardstock) to create the base… then punch!

Use the adhesive strip to mount the base onto the front of the card so it’s the same height as the globe.

Everybody loves getting Shake Cards, and now you know how to make a Snowglobe Shaker …. quick -n- easy!

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me and visiting my blog.

Have yourself a great day!

Merry Little Christmas Suite …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you another one of our retreat cards. This card comes from the Merry Little Christmas Suite!

This masculine style card was quick -n- easy and a big hit at retreat. Our background comes from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper. We then cut a snow bank our of a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Next, we used the tree dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Die and cut them out of Old Olive to give the card a fun pop of color.

The “Let it Snow” was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then punched with the “Everyday Label” punch. A piece of Old Olive was punched to mask the greeting and again, add that nice touch of color.

We created 4 quick -n- easy cards that were tucked into one of the Acetate Card Boxes. This makes a perfect little gift for a teacher or neighbor … or keep them protected for yourself!

Hope you enjoyed today’s peek into our Saturday morning retreat stampin’ session. I’ll be back tomorrow with one more …

Till then, enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.

Here is a quick list of the products used for our card today …

 

Fresh Fig Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share the last of my cards from the Snowflake Sentiments Showcase, and it will be a vertical card verses the horizontal layout I have been using.

My color pallet is very simple for this card with Fresh Fig and Whisper White with a touch of Silver … oh so classy! You can see how sweetly the silver snowflakes fit into the die cut edgelit.

The snowflakes were embellished with a pretty bow made from the Fresh Fig 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon. Just the sound of Fig reminds me of Christmas, and our greeting “Wrapped in the Warmth of Christmas” brings back memories of Figgy Pudding (well … at least in the movies!) lol

The greeting was heat embossed with Silver emboss powder to coordinate with our Silver Foil paper. To add a touch of texture, I used the “Softly Falling” embossing folder.

Wow … that’s it.  A simply elegant style card created with the warm color of fig and a touch of silver glam!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my blog. It’s greatly appreciated. I have listed the ingredients to the card below.

Have a special day ~

Simply Sunday: Season’s Greetings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card created from the Snowflake Sentiments bundle. I have had many requests to showcase more than one card when doing the popular bundles.

I hope you got to see the “glamorous” Gold and Vanilla cards that I shared yesterday … oh so pretty! Today I’m using one of my favorite new In-Colors “Tranquil Tide” … all stamps and dies used today are again from the Snowflake Sentiments.

With the exception of the Oval Framelits and Stitched Shapes Framelits … these were used for the “Season’s Greetings” which comes in the bundle. I love the little swirls that come in this bundle – I used the Silver Foil for these, and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for the snowflake.

Our designer paper comes from the “Delicate Daisy” paper. Hint… Hint … this is one of the designer papers that are currently on sale (Buy 3 / Get 1 Free).

The inside was stamped with this wonderful sentiment and with little swirl that are included in the bundle as well. I also created a matching envelope by using the snowflake stamp and the swirl.

Super Simple to create … just a little stamping and a few runs through the BigShot and you are ready for assembly.

Thank you so much for joining me this Sunday. Stop back tomorrow, I have a cute Christmas card that features 2 more of the dies (you haven’t seen) that are included in the Snowflake Sentiments bundle.

Enjoy your Sunday ~

Simply Sunday: Coffee with a Friend

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Don’t you just love the smell of fresh brewing coffee? Oooo … I do and what’s better than that, is to sit back with a friend enjoying a lovely conversation and a cup of coffee!

Today’s card evokes those feelings for me … the old fashioned coffee pot, our “Happiness” greeting and the corrugated heart ties it all together.

I used the cute dotted paper from the Coffee Break Designer Series paper for my background. In keeping with that theme, I used circle dies and punches to create my focal point of the card.

The coffee pot and cup were cut out of another pattern from our designer paper and then stamped our greeting omitting some of the wording.

The second half of the verse actually was stamped on the inside of the card and a little heart added to tie into the front design of our card.

The card was a simple to make as it will be to pick up the phone and invite your friend over for some coffee and good conversation, because Happiness really is coffee shared with a friend

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope yours is a good one.

It’s Your Day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

While getting ready for my Carols of Christmas class this weekend, I ran across some leftovers from my July 2017 Paper Pumpkin and decided to use them up so here is my alternative to the pre-designed cards in the kit… 

Everything on the card comes in the kit except the Glitter Enamel Dots and I used them to cover up a couple of smudges! With mistakes comes opportunity!!

I also used the oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits to cut out the tulips. The “hooray” gives the card added dimension, and I wanted to make sure I used up all the wooden elements from the kit!

Also … wanted to let you know that today is the last day to cash in on this exciting offer (the best I’ve seen in my 17 years as a demonstrator).

Once you purchase the kit you can check out all the wonderful benefits of being a demonstrator (I can help) and then decide to dabble in the fun or just play with all your new stamping supplies! Your choice!

Contact me with any questions @ lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com

Thanks for checking in on me today, I’ll be back tomorrow with a more manly alternative from the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit!

Have a wonderful day ~

 

Positively Picturesque … Part 2

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s cards … I’m back today with the second round of the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit. You will see the remaining 2 cards from the kit and my Alternative Project.  Here is a shot of yesterday’s cards …

Here is the 3rd of the 4 card designs in the kit. It’s actually quite “Springy” Love the little tulips and how they are nestled into the heart like a little puppet show! The tulips are pre-printed so no worry about stamping solid images or “straight”! Even the grass was pre-cut for us! Wonder if they do lawns? lol

The last card is created using the heart that was popped out of the 3rd cards front panel. The little colored banners are die cut stickers … how easy is that! Then we add a little Washi Tape onto the heart and add the “love” with the enclosed glue dots.

I almost forgot to stamp the “you” so it was added after I assembled the card (lucky!). The hearts were suppose to be stamped in the Soft Sky but I like the contrast of the Tranquil Tide … so just like Frank Sinatra … I did it my way!

For my alternative card, I choose to use the “heart” again … in fact, I used both the heart and it’s negative on the same card …

I popped out the heart and covered it with the Washi Tape that was used on the first cards (Yes … we got 2 colors of washi tape) and then cut down the negative to fit the card. Before mounting it onto my card base, I put a piece of “Vellum Cardstock” behind it to give it a different look.

I attached the Washi Heart onto the card and added the “love” … I thought about coloring it but changed my mind because I really wanted it to stand out, and it does with the natural wood look.

Lastly I used a few of the “Glitter Enamel Dots” to add a touch of bling to the card! I just love those glitter dots!!

I appreciate you coming back to check out the second round of cards. Hope you liked them … I still have left over supplies!! Maybe I’ll make even more.
