A Blizzard of Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I see you made it through Monday!! lol  Me too … now we can get on with the rest of the week, and another Snowflake card!!

I have to admit that when I first saw this come out, I thought, another snowflake stamp set??? But WOW … this is so different from the others, first there is the cool stamp that sprinkles down the snowflakes! Let me show you …

See how my Tranquil Tide snowflakes gently fall from the top of the Pool Party cardstock? That is the stamp … nothing fancy from me!! I just fell in love with this (the other reason I bought it will be featured on tomorrows card).

There is nothing lacking on the beautiful snowflake die either, especially when its cut from the new “Sparkle” Glimmer paper. If you thought the Dazzling Diamonds that retired last year was pretty … wait till you see this!

The little snowflake is cut with the White Velveteen paper (Sold Out) and backed with the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and topped off with a Clear Faceted Gem. If the layering of snowflakes didn’t add enough texture to my card … I added the Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon as well.

The greeting is included in the Snow is Glistening Stamp set and is stamped in Tranquil Tide.  Don’t you just love this color combination!! Hope you enjoyed my Snowflake Card and that it “melts” your heart!

Thank you for dropping in for a visit today!

Have a good day ~

Chasing Ghosts … Halloween Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Labor Day!! Hope the sun is shining where you are.  We have been inundated with rain for days, so I headed down to my Stampin’ Studio (fancy word for basement craft area) and began to play with all my new goodies from the Holiday Catalog.  Whenever I’m creating something with my hands, all my stress instantly melts away. It’s so satisfying.

If you’re looking for that escape to melt away your stress and get some of your creative mojo going … join me at my Annual Holiday Stampin’ Retreat – November 2nd thru the 4th. I had a cancellation so we now have one room open and you are welcome to join us.  This does not happen very often!

Our retreat is like no other, we’re All Inclusive … just contact me and I can answer any questions you may have.

While I was in my craft room, I created a sweet -n- simple Halloween card … the Toil & Trouble product suite is really fun to work with (or should I say play). You really get a good look at the entire product suite with today’s card.  I used the stamps for the ghost and greeting, used the designer paper, the dies and the “really cool” Black Foil Sheets and cardstock pack.

The Toil & Trouble Designer paper is so stinkin’ cute! From these friendly little ghosts, to happy frogs, hats, cauldrons, bats and more! Did you know some of the images from the designer paper can be cut out with the coordinating dies in this bundle … Fabulous!

The spider webs were cut from the new Black Foil Sheets with the dies included in the bundle. I even brought out the punches: 1-1/4″ Circle and 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle to highlight my greeting.  Whenever I use ghosts I have to make sure there is some ectoplasm present … lol, so you will recognize it as the Glitter Enamel Dots.

I love fun, simple cards … they are easy to create and oh so fun to share.  Using designer paper on your cards adds so much without all the work.  You can get a better look at the products I used below.  The Toil & Trouble product suite will be available for purchase on September 5th … see you then.

Thank you for hanging out with me … or should I say “Ghost Hunting” on this Labor Day!

Have a great day ~

Guest Stamper: Kathie D.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Looks like summer is upon us!!  I actually had my air conditioner on yesterday and will put the second one in upstairs today!! I believe in being comfortable when I’m at home and I don’t like to sweat … so, if this is going to be my cleaning weekend, I’m putting in the air!!  AND … the sooner I get done with my cleaning – I can get to my stamping and play with all the new stuff I have (yes, I’ve still got a BIG Wish List when the catalog comes out next week)!

Well on with the good stuff … Yesterday I told you I had something good planned and I do, today I’m sharing the WINNING Card from the All Attendee Card Swap at our Annual Spring Retreat! Our winner is chosen by votes collected by the attendee’s themselves. Here is Kathie’s winning card …

Kathie’s stunning card was created with the Flourish Thinlits Dies and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder … got to love that BigShot!!  Kathie gently brought the floral piece around the opening / greeting.  Not sure if Kathie used the punch or circle framelits create the circle but it adds a beautiful layer of dimension.

The floral piece was also embellished with our pearls and it adds a little more dimension and elegance. Our them was “Cards to show we Care” and this one is beautiful!! This layout would work well for any occasion from Wedding, to announce a new baby to Sympathy.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed Kathie’s card as much as we all did at the Stampin’ Retreat…. it is stunning!

Have yourself a fabulous day today … and enjoy the holiday weekend.

 

Petal Pallet: Life Is So Much Better

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you got to enjoy a wonderful weekend and got spoiled a little!  I also hope you got a chance to check out my post yesterday to see the new In-colors. I love these cards and the simplicity yet they were so pretty!

Today I have one of the cards that I created for the Spring Stamping Retreat.  Our retreat highlighted “caring” cards … cards that we create to make someone feel better, to cheer, encourage or relay our sympathies. This was one of those cards …

I began with the Petal Pallet bundle and designer series paper. I knew I wanted to use the beautiful floral die in the bundle.  I also want a little bit different of a fold … just for fun! Petal Pallet will be in the upcoming catalog but it will no longer be a bundle (Save 10%) after May 31st.

We used the Multipurpose adhesive sheets with the Silver Foil sheets and then cut them out with the BigShot! Turns them into stickers … and then we just pressed them onto our card.  This made it super simple to watercolor the flowers using ink and Aqua Painters. Then we drew the little lines into the flower petals with the coordinating marker.

I’ve used the Petal Pallet bundle quite a few times already, it is a very versatile stamp set and I love the coordinating dies. It has great verses / greetings as well … and I will admit, that will sway me towards a stamp set.  Sometimes I will choose a stamp set just because of the beautiful verses.

Thanks for dropping in for the visit today …

I hope you have a marvelous Monday!
