Christmas Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Burrr!  Hope you’re staying warm.

As we begin the day with a whoppin’ 5 degrees, I hear it’s going to warm up into the 20’s … just so it can snow!  Oh well, that’s winter in Wisconsin!

Today I will share with you my final “Silver & Gold” card (we’ll at least for a little while).  I couldn’t resist, I was just having too much fun creating with these fabulous foil papers.

My card today highlights the “snowflake” from the “Festive Flurry” stamp set found in the Holiday catalog.  Just to let you know,  the holiday catalog purchasing period ends January 2nd.

I heat embossed the snowflake with the silver embossing powder and cut it out with the coordinating “Festive Flurry” framelit dies.  I then highlighted it with the rhinestones.

I used the Ovals Collection framelits to cut out an oval to showcase the snowflake.  I also added a strip of the gold foil paper to the side, after embossing it with the “Stylish Stripes” Impressions Folder.  I accented it with the silver ribbon, just to tie bring the card together.

My greeting “Christmas Wishes” comes from the stamp set “Joy to the World” … I was really impressed with the stamps in this set and use them quite a bit on my cards.

I used Very Vanilla cardstock as my base, it created a softer and warmer effect than using the white.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be sure to show you something other than silver and gold tomorrow.

Stay warm ~

Sparkle with Joy …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you made it through “Black Friday” … that is my day to stay home and relax and begin to decorate for the upcoming Christmas holiday season.

For my card share today, I have decided to focus on the Holiday Catalog… there are so many fabulous items in there!

000_0420

The focal point of the card is the poinsettia from the “Joyful Christmas” stamp set.  Remember, when you click on the items highlighted – you will be able to view the product 🙂  I also want to let you know that “Joyful Christmas” is currently on sale too!!

I heat embossed 2 poinsettia’s in white onto vellum cardstock, and then cut them out.  They are adhered together with stampin’ dimensionals, then attached with the dimensionals to give them that “pop” on the card.

I have chosen the “Winter Frost Specialty” Designer Series Paper, I also have the paper pack, both are great additions to your Designer Paper collection.  I have used the Midnight Muse as my core color.  To accent, I used the “Silver 1/8″ Ribbon”.

I used the “Joy to the World” stamp from the “Joy to the World” Stamp set.  Because of it’s design, I chose to color it in, yet leave the rough edges.

To finish it off … I added the smallest of the rhinestones to the designer paper.  Ok … so it’s not a card you would send to 100 people (not really cost effective) but if you were looking for that special card for someone who loves “sparkle” … this is the card you were looking for!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Wishing you Joy …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I’m sure many of you are busy getting ready for your Thanksgiving celebration, and upcoming holiday season.

Today I would like to share with you a card you can create so simply with the “Oval Collections Framelits”.

They were a must have on my list because I think they compliment your scrapbooking so well.  Funny thing is … I use them on my cards so much more!

000_0401

I sized the first oval based on the greeting, then used it to cut out the Winter Frost Designer Paper.  The greeting was then stamped with Island Indigo directly onto the card base.

The Island Indigo ring around the greeting is actually a piece that was double cut … the first piece was used as a mat for another card.

To complete that card I added the beautiful “Frosted Finishes” Embellishment.  It coordinates so nice with the design on this paper and adds that bit of “bling” you like for the holidays.

Christmas Card Class Sneek Peek!

Hello Stampin’ Friends!

Well August 1st marked my 2 month anniversary of my blog… so, I checked my stat’s page and was amazed at what I saw!  I was not surprised to see the majority of my views were found in the US, but was pleased to see that my blog also reached Australia, Canada and New Zealand!  With much anticipation to see what was next, I clicked on the “overall” button, and to my amazement I had reached: China, Germany, Finland, Hungary, Serbia, Japan, Mauritius, United Kingdom, Guam and Hungary!

Stampin’ friends …. I am honored and so grateful that you have enjoyed one or more of my posts.  I look forward to sharing more wonderful cards, scrapbook pages, and stampin’ tips with you.  Thank you so much … and please keep sharing my blog with your friends.  This is so much fun to be part of a world-wide stampin’ community!

Today, I’m sharing a simple but pretty card that is part of a card class I will be doing.  The class is centered around the “Season of Style Designer Series Paper Pack and the “Joy to the World” stamp set.

000_0037

So you my friends get a “Sneak Peek”.  I am in the process of writing up the instructions / layouts for my downline so they cans share with their stampin’ groups too.

I will follow up with an e-mail to my club members and anyone else interested in this class.  Just put your e-mail address in the comment box and I will get in touch with you!

Have a wonderful weekend.
