Fast and Fabulous Snowflakes

Happy Friday Stampers ~ a pretty blue Fast and Fabulous Snowflakes card was created just for you.

It was nice not to have anything that I had to do yesterday.  I did get my grocery shopping done and I went to Dollar Tree and Wal-mart.  I picked up wrapping paper for the girls Christmas presents so I can start to wrap them.  I need to get their Advent Calendars done and items put in the little boxes so I can send it to Jess so they have it for the first of December.  Maybe I will make my video for Sunday today and then work on the boxes.  Once they are finished I can add the little goodie and package them to be shipped.

Did you see my Facebook Live last night?  I did a variation on Joseph’s Coat and used snowflakes.  Since this is a different idea, I call it Robbie’s Coat.  We had a lot of fun and I am hoping to finish the cards and post them to the group.  I do a Facebook Live on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm EST.  I will not be doing one next week since it is Thanksgiving.  I would love to have you join us!

Today is the Fast & Fabulous video series.  This week I played with some snowflakes and the Wrapped in Plaid dsp.  Here is the video showing what I created.

 

 

 

Here is a photo of the card so you can see all the details.

I love snowflakes! Each one is unique and individual. Learn how I used them with the Wrapped in Plaid dsp to create this Fast & Fabulous Snowflakes card.

I have created lots of snowflake cards over the years.  Check out this one that has a watercolor background.  This idea also uses some designer series paper.  Here is an idea that uses a fun retired snowflake embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  Our weather is supposed to be a little warmer for the next few days, but cloudy.  I like the warmer temps but would like more sun.  At least I can spend time in my studio!  Have a Fabulous Friday and did you like the snowflakes on my Fast and Fabulous Snowflakes?

 

 

 

Clean and Simple Thinking of You

Hello Everyone ~ I love today’s Clean and Simple Thinking of You creation today.

I managed to get 3 cards and 1 video made yesterday.  I had an appointment in the middle of the day so I just did a few things in the morning.  After I got home I hit my studio and started working on the things I need for the rest of this week.  It was nice to take my time and create.  I then took some time to make my pumpkin pie filling.  I love the filling from a pumpkin pie by itself.  I don’t have to have the pie crust.  So I made up a batch last night so I would have some to eat.  I still put the Cool Whip on Top but would prefer Whipped Cream.  I think the next batch I make I will get some Whipped Cream instead of Cool Whip.  It was a great dessert!

I had a sketch I had taken a picture of before I went to California.  I loved the simplicity of the sketch so I decided to see what I could do with it.  I began by choosing my stamp set.  I opted to use the flowers in the Perennial Birthday.  I stamped the flower with the leaves and sprig using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then using Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow ink and glycerin I colored the flowers and set them aside to dry.  The sketch had a diamond shape so I went looking for sentiment I could use in the diamond shape.  The perfect one was in Seaside Notions.  I cut my 2″ x 2″ square and turned it to make a diamond.  The sentiment was then stamped using Blackberry Bliss.  I cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss at 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″.  I had a panel of 4″ x 5 1/4″ of Whisper White and embossed it using the Subtle embossing folder.  This panel was then mounted onto a Blackberry Bliss card base using Tear & Tape.  Next add the Blackberry Bliss card stock in a diamond shape to the lower left hand portion of the card front.  The Perennial Essence designer series paper was cut at 1″ x 4 1/4″ then the end was flagged using the Banner Triple punch.  This strip was mounted across the center of the diamond.  The sentiment diamond was then added to the Blackberry Bliss diamond making sure the side were equal.  The colored flowers were then cut out and added to the card front using dimensionals.  Here is the completed Clean and Simple Thinking of You creation.

This beautiful card is easy to make. The Clean and Simple Thinking of You uses glycerin to color the flowers.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  Bijou has a spa appointment this morning and then I want to do some grocery shopping.  I also want to check out Wal-mart and the Dollar Tree as I am looking for some things and need to see if they have them yet.  Have a Great Day and don’t you think the Clean and Simple Thinking of You is a very pretty card?

 

 

Colorful Seasons in Cajun Craze

Hello Everyone ~ Colorful Seasons in Cajun Craze is my card for today.

I had a great workshop yesterday.  The ladies had a great time and raved about the cards.  I love sharing my ideas with the ladies!  Did you see the information about the big 3 day sale that started today?  This sale is Stampin’ Up’s version of a Black Friday sale.  They are doing it early so they can mail out the items in a timely manner.  There are 8 bundles on sale as well as ink and card stock.  I need to replenish some of my card stock and there is a bundle I may get also.  Check your supplies and make sure you order now while you can get a good price!

I got my least favorite color for my One Color Wonder today.  Cajun Craze is one color I don’t use very often.  I just don’t care for it.  Today I had that color along with the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Here is the video showing what I did with this color.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Tree

Hello Everyone ~ I used a challenging designer series paper for my Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Tree creation today.

Well I managed to get some of my craft items organized.  I also cleaned up my studio and vacuumed the house.  Now all I need to do is clean the bathrooms.  I will work on those tomorrow.  Today I have my workshops and I need to make my videos for this week.  I have seen some of the new product in the upcoming Occasions catalog.  There is some gorgeous paper in it.  I can’t wait to get the catalog so I can see more of the paper better.  I should get my catalog soon as they were going to mail them out to demonstrators in the middle of November.  I am also looking at the Holiday catalog as it will retire at the end of December.  I want to make sure if there is anything in there I want that I order it now before it is gone.  What do you think I need to order?

We have our Hand Stamped Sentiments Paper Crafting Challenges today.  This challenge is an inspiration challenge.  We have this great picture to inspire us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I looked at this I immediately saw the tree in the lower right hand corner.  I decided to see what I could do with this.  The photo had a background and I knew the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper had a pattern with a tree on it.  This paper presented a challenge for me as I could not figure out what to do with it.  I decided to use the paper and create a strip for the left hand side of the card base.  I wanted to spruce it up a bit so I cut two 1/4″ strips from Gold foil paper and using Tear & Tape I added one to the card base then added the strip of designer series paper then the last strip of Gold foil paper.  Now to work on the tree on the right hand side of the photo.  I thought the Winter Woods stamp set had a great evergreen tree so I stamped it using Shaded Spruce ink making sure to have the right hand side of the image going off the page like the photo.  I mounted it onto a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock and then adding that panel to a piece of Whisper White.  This panel was added to the lower right hand corner of the card front using dimensionals.  A retired star punch was used to punch a star from Gold glimmer paper and then added to the top of the tree using a glue dot.  To continue with the inspiration photo, I added some Real Red rhinestones to the tree.  Here is the completed Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Tree creation.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree a fun card using some tree paper for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Tree idea.

Wrapped in Plaid Sailing Home

Hello Everyone ~ still playing with the plaid designer series paper with my Wrapped in Plaid Sailing Home creation.

The play at the theater ~ The Hunchback of Notre Dame ~ was fabulous.  It was a musical and the singers were great.  This is a local community theater group that does these plays.  I did not know the story of the Hunchback so it was interesting to see how the play unfolded.  It was 2 1/2 hours long so one of the longest plays we have seen this season.  They have the shows out for the 2020 season.  We looked at those as well as the ones for another local community theater groups.  They both have great plays so we have to see which one we want to get season tickets for or if we want to do both or pick and choose the plays we want to see.  We will see what unfolds over the next week or so.

I thought it would be fun to use one of the blue plaid papers from the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper.  I opted to use it with the sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set.  I cut the blue plaid paper and mounted it onto a piece of Night of Navy card stock.  This panel was added to the Whisper White card base on an angle.  The small sailboat was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White using Night of Navy ink.  The card stock was then cut down to fit the image.  A piece of Gold foil paper was cut a little larger than the sailboat panel and then glue dots were used to attach the sailboat panel to the Gold foil panel.  The sailboat panel was then attached to the card base using dimensionals a little above the center.  To finish the card, the ship’s wheel from the Sail Away Trinkets using a glue dot.  Here is the completed Wrapped in Plaid Sailing Home creation.

A simple masculine card that uses the plaid paper again. Look at this Wrapped in Plaid Sailing Home guy idea.
