Holiday Time

Hello, Diane with you today. I have to admit, this week I was Pinterest inspired once again! I saw a similar card and layout/sketch and it was so beautiful, I just had to make one with a few changes.

I started with just a plain white card stock for the base.
Next came a panel cut from Pearlized Esse White Metallic card stock. I cut a smaller second panel to place on top, from Bellisima A5 Paper Pack.

The poinsettia was made using Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die. I brushed the poinsettia with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive, adding a little bit at a time, then sprinkling with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Cloud Nine Velvet Microfine glitter.

I added a snowflake from the Sue Wilson Festive Collection Snowflakes. (This item is not in the CCNS online store, but you can email Beverly to order it for you. Email info for Beverly is listed below).

To finish, I tied a ribbon around the two panels and added a sterling silver snowflake.

Just to give you another idea for this card, the original card I saw on Pinterest had greens under the Poinsettia,
no glitter, and no charm...also very pretty!

Join in our challenge with us this week, which is Holly Days using holly and/or a poinsettia, but hurry as it ends tonight! You can find the link HERE.

Riding Pretty

It's Joy here today showing you a fall card I made with supplies from the Classy Cards 'n Such online store. Surprise!! It's a shaker card!!

In Texas we may be playing fall football -- but the heat is still hanging on.

The base of the shaker card is designer paper from the 12x12 paper pad called Key to My Heart by Heartfelt Creations. The brown print is from the 6x6 pad called Harvest Lane by Simple Stories.

The bicycle is from the stamp set called Riding Pretty by Impression Obsession and colored with markers. It was die cut with the companion die called Bicycle. Acetate was used for the window, and attached by doubling up on some Joy Large Foam Pads, and putting them between the window and the card base. Those foam pads are wonderful to making the windows.

I hope fall is in the air where you are. Thanks for looking at my card. Have a happy stamping day!

A Beautiful View

Hello Friends, it is Shirley posting today.  Since summer has faded into the sunset and we are just starting the Fall season, I thought I would share one more card with a summer scene. Sailboats always look so peaceful and serene out on the water, especially when the sun is starting to set.

I started out using a white card base. I added layers of turquoise, orange and black card stock over it. I really like these colors together.

I used the Sweet 'n Sassy The Sea stamp set to stamp the sailboat scene. I took various colors of Distress Inks and blended them over the stamped image using the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool.

The finishing touch to my card was to add the sentiment from the Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments. 

Thank you for joining us today. I hope the bright colors on this card has brightened your day. Have a wonderful weekend.

Prince of Peace

Hello card makers out there! Mindy with you today, to share a wonderful card that I will be making for the holidays this year. It is a (CAS) Clean and Simple card, that is one stamped image, then can be decorated as little or as much as you desire.

I stamped the Joy to the World Cling stamp set from Heartfelt Creations on watercolor paper, and added just a bit of color with my watercolor markers. I distressed around the edge of the paper with Vintage Photo Distressed Ink. and my Mini Ink Blending Tool by Ranger, to give it the distressed edge look, then matted it with a piece of So. . . Silk Glamour Green, before adding to my card base of Bluebell Stardream Metallic paper, both carried in the Classy Cards 'n Such online store.

A tiny satin bow and several paper Sequins cut from the Sequins die, from My Favorite Things, were added to complete my card.

Thanks for visiting today. You still have time to join our weekly card challenge "Holly Days", where you can submit a card and possibly win a wonderful prize.

There is still time to join our Classy Cards 'n Such challenge. Click on the Current Challenge tab on the right side of the blog for all the details. Come and join the fun!

Sorority Panda

Hello, Diana here sharing a card I made for a very specific purpose.  My niece is in this sorority, and apparently they have this thing they do for their "littles", and this year she is to gift her with panda themed things.  So I made this little shaker card with a panda holding the balloons with the colors of her sorority.

To make this shaker card, I started with the large stitched die from MFT Blueprints 13, and cut two in white card stock. On one of them, I cut a window out using a diagonal stitched square die.

I then stamped my sentiment from my stash, and also adhered a sheet of Clear Cardstock using 1/8" Scor-tape.

On the other one, I sponged some Evergreen Bough and Squeezed Lemonade, and then glued Memory Box Bamboo Shoots out of green card stock with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive, to make my background through the front window. I used some foam tape to pop up my window, and added some green beads and Sequins inside my shaker element. *NOTE - In the CCNS online store, there is a die called Sequins. Row by row, the sequins graduate in size. Cut them out of foil paper, for a real WOW effect. See supply list below.

I then popped up a fussy cut panda, and some balloons from the ODBD Happy Birthday die set.  I also popped up the top balloons with  Joy! Small Foam Pads, and tucked my silver twine to go from the balloons to the panda's hand.

Thank you so much for looking!
