Blue Jay Conversion

The Christmas Cardinal is now a Spring or Summer Blue Jay. Would make a great note card or masculine card. The mat is Whisper White embossed with the Poplar Tree embossing folder.

This is a 'salvage' card. The trees are embossed backward because the front got messed up and I couldn't use it. (Always recycle when you can)


He is regal looking bird! I saw this on another blog and couldn't wait to try it out.

Until next time have a blessed day!

November Scrapbook Club

Snow, snow, snow is in the forecast so this is perfect. Can be used for any Winter activity or even Christmas time.


There's room for six 4 x 4 photos or even one of them for journaling. (12 x 12)

Three Deer

This white on white card is striking. Three deer cut with a framelit and added using Dimensionals. I added a gold thread leash and a sprig of holly set the tone.


The mat was run thru the Big Shot using the Falling Snow Embossing folder. And of course, Rudolph has the big red nose!

Thinking of You

This card can be used for a masculine card, birthday, sympathy, note card or illness. The mat was embossed with the plank embossing folder. The main images are from the Crafting Forever stamp set stamped with Pacific Point. Two acrylic dots add accent.


I stamped the front of the envelope as well.  The sentiment is from Good Morning Magnolia but you can add any one that suits your card needs.

Gift Card Holder

Sorry it has taken so long to post but have been cutting and prepping for the Stamp A Stack class on Saturday. Lots of cutting to do.

This is a cute little gift card holder. The base is Poppy Parade (or you can use Real Red). Any Christmas themed Designer Paper will do for the inside and out.

The snowman is punched using the Snowman builder punch and the acrylic embellishents are in the Occasions Mini.


The front snowman is used as the closure for the holder. Cute and simple and I'm sure anyone would love receiving their gift card in it.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Pumpkin Patch

Miss Josie and her first grade class on a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch. It was a beautiful day for a field trip.


I know the kids really enjoyed themselves. Thanks for stopping by!

Strips of paper

This card turned out nothing like I pictured in my mind! But decided to finish it anyway. The background is made of 1/2" strips weaved and glued to a base. The card base is Pear Pizzaz and the printed from the Garden Lane Designer Paper.


The sentiment is from the set Rustic Retreat and the deer image is from Nature's Beauty. I double punched the mat that has the sentiment to make it smaller. Enjoy

Joy, Joy, Joy

The card base is Shaded Spruce with a Cherry Cobbler mat and the top layer is from the Plaid 6x6 paper stack. I cut out the image and added it with Dimensionals.


There was enough left to add to the outside flap of the envelope. A cut-out dollie accents the image. Christmas is getting closer and closer but don't forget that all-important lost holiday - Thanksgiving!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Snowmen

Snowman Season highlights this card. It is quick & easy to make and can be a masculine card, birthday card, even a Christmas Card.


There is a verse inside and a few paper snowflakes. The blues believe it or not, are the same color but the scan makes it look different. The snowmen are stamped randomly with a touch of color on the scarf, hat and carrot nose!

The sentiment is punched out with the Large Oval and then two 'Dolly Parton' hearts to help it stand out. Card base is Seaside Spray matted with Night of Navy.

I have been MIA lately but I had a super, great visit with an old friend from VAB. Hadn't seen her in over 20 years so lots of catching up.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Feels Like Frost

Another Feels Like Frost Christmas card. I love that paper. I used Seaside Spray as the base with an added 3" strip from the 6 x 6 paper stack. The image is for the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set that is a FREE hostess gift!


The greeting is stamped on a die cut from the Beautiful Boughs and is mounted on a die cut from Frosted Frames. I added a few snow flakes for accent. There was enough Feels like Frost paper to add a strip to the flap of the envelope.

Have a wonderful day and STAMP!!!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Feels Like Frost

This was an easy, peasey & quick card. The silver foil adds such a great accent as the mat and the frosty paper is from the 6x6 Stack Feels Like Frost. I scattered some silver sequins to show off the silver foil.


The scan looks black but it is silver! I even made a matching envelope with the left over Frost paper.
Great Christmas card for a man! The stamp set is Greatest Part of Christmas FREE as a hostess gift.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Makes a good gift!

Quick & easy Christmas Card

The card base is Night of Navy with a silver mat. The final mat is 4 x 5 1/4 stamped with snowflakes from the White Craft ink using a stamp from Grunge (retired).


The snow is torn water color paper with the two rabbits for the set, Wildly Happy.I used a light gray marker to highlight the rabbit.

Pop-up fold card

I promised a card today and hope to make some more. Got cleaning done so hopefully crafting the rest of the day.

I love the Plaid 6 x 6 paper so I used it for this card.


Front                                 Back


On the back is big enough to write or stamp a message. The card it self is 6 x 6 so we'll make an envelope for it. There is another version of this same type card and I hope to get one made today. 

Enjoy this great weather.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Last one today...

What a gift! on t-paper! I just had to try it. There are some really cute saying you can embroidery on the t-paper but I have to find 'em first.


Gotta quit this for today. I have class tomorrow and haven't even written the instructions yet. Have a great day!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Here comes Santa...

I made this for my granddaughter, Josie! I was really just practicing and wish I had done it on a long sleeve T. It's still cute.


Everything you do you learn something. I learned how to change the bobbin midstream and it start sewing where you left off.  It is a fun hobby which I really didn't need another one.

Just another try...

Now I know why people embroidery - to cover stains. This T had a stain now UNDER the moose!


This will be smooth when I press it! I keep now trying to find things to embroider. It's lots of fun except for having to change threads all the time! Hope u like it.

Until next time have a great day!

Change of pace today...

I went to the $Tree and bought some 4 for $1.00 micro-dish clothes—Just to practice on. Here is a moose I embroidered on one of them since hubby is going moose hunting next week!



I haven’t had time to play with the new machine; been sick for three days and had to prepare for a class Saturday and take hubs to the dr. today. Hope to get some done Friday since now I have to go to work.


Hope you like it!

Until next time have a blessed (rainy) day!

Gnomes!

Not an SU stamp but I like gnomes plus this is a repurposed card. I had to have the paper pieced clown that was on this card originally so the gnomes were the replacement! (Artistic decision)


BTW since this scan was done I added tiny pom-poms on the top of their hats. Sometimes in a pinch you have to 'rob from Peter to pay Paul'! Hope you like it!

Fishing is in his blood!

Jacob and his family camping at Jelly Stone. It was for his birthday (10th). I know he loves camping and fishing especially.


He is so proud of all the fish he caught. Happy Birthday Jake!

Punchie

Well I just deleted this post so gotta redo it.

This is such a cute punchie card. Great for baseball, T-Ball or softball. You could replace the base ball with a basketball or soccer ball without the hat! Great Juvie or masculine card.


We are making these at the Punchie Class this week. The sentiments were left off on purpose so when you need a certain type of card you can add your own.

I've been playing with my new Embroidery machine so my paper projects have suffered. But you know how it is to get a new toy. (I'm sure)

Enjoy this great weather - it has finally turned Fall!

Apple pickin' time

Gingham apples punched from the Gingham Paper Stack (retired). I used the Harvest Hello Bundle which contains the Apple Builder Punch and the stamp set, Harvest Hellos!



It just looks like a 'happy card'! I did not put a sentiment; will wait till I need a card for a specific occasion.

Until next time have a blessed day!
