2016-12-04; Doily Holiday Greetings


Today’s card was quick and easy but made in separate time slots that I had available. I cut the card out with the Cricut and dry fitted it together Friday morning just before I left for the morning commute. This morning I took the pieces and glued them together. Including cutting, gluing & photographing I’d say this card took about 40 minutes.

The tree’s are a free SVG file that I uploaded to the Cricut Design Space and cut out. I cut in 2 different sizes, used 3-d mounting tape layering them together. The ornaments are dots of glitter glue.

The doily and largest circle was cut using a cartridge (Wild Card) and the embossed white circle cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched die and embossed with a Stampin’ Up embossing folder. The sentiment is (I think) a Close to My Heart unmounted gift that was sent to me a few years ago.

2016-12-03; November Stamp Camp Pine Cone & review


This is the last of the cards that I made at the November Stamp Camp. I really like pine cones and branches!

Don’t you love that little gold bow! We used a plastic fork to wrap the cord around and get it all tied up.

A nice clean, simple, quick card.

Thanks to Sally for hosting such a fun camp and great projects.

2016-12-02; Anna’s Christmas Cards & Embellishments Cartridge


This card was an experiment. I cut lots of pieces and put them all on the same card. Each element had 3 layers, so although this design does not have much in the way of 3-d items; it does have a chunkiness from all the various layers piled on top of each other. All the designs were cut from the Cricut cartridge Anna’s Christmas Cars & Embellishments.

These poinsettia’s did not cut well on my machine. In fact all of the cut pieces needed varying amounts of manual clean up with a small pointy scissors; making this a labor intensive card. Not one I would want to reproduce 25-30 times for the family Christmas card. The flowers looked plain so I added some glitter glue, which you can see is still drying in the photo. It wouldn’t be a photo by me if it didn’t have something still drying showing.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your Christmas cards all made or well on their way; unlike mine. I’ve got not a clue yet.

2016-12-02; November Stamp Camp Holly Leaves


I still have a couple of cards left from the November stamp camp. They are Christmas cards, so perfect for December

We stamped the branch onto the white card stock then individually stamped and punched out leaves. Some are popped up other glued down.

2016-12-01; DECEMBER Calendar Page


The calendar page you see is a project that was started and completed September 2015. This calendar project was made by all of the Shoebox Ladies and two Stamping Friends from Washington State. Instead of showing them all at once back in 2015, I’ve decided to delay posting until the actual month they were created for.

This month the calendar page was created by Chrissy Bornfleth.

2016-11-30; Wheeled Christmas


The stamping wheels are out and getting inky. Today’s ink fest was a jumbo wheel by Stampin Up called Very Vintage. The background was inked in VersaMark Ink and then embossed in gold.

To get the texture and sparkly look I embossed the background using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder (snowflakes) and then using glitter glue dotted the raised images.

The flower was die cut, then each petal stamped with a small leaf image. It was then sponged, stacked, glued and iridescent medium added. Lastly I dotted glue in the center and added a mixture of chunky glitter and micro marbles.

2016-11-29; November Stamp Camp Drapery Swag


This card features the drapery fold. The original design had the drape on the bottom of the card. Of course I did it upside down and backwards, doh. But it did turn out really good because this is how a real drape would look above a window.

When I brought it home it did not have anything on the white area of the card. I still had my fall stamps out from the Shoebox night so I added that.

Foil Stickers are good for almost any card!

Because of the colors of the DP I added a fall sentiment. Just changing out the DP this could be for any season, any reason!
