Stampin’ Up Merry Little Christmas dsp

Happy Friday Everyone ~ I played with the Stampin’ Up Merry Little Christmas dsp to create my C.A.S.E. the Catty challenge this week.

Well I got my project completed yesterday as well as some cards for my blog.  I started cutting for my workshop so I need to finish that this morning as I have ladies coming this afternoon.  I had hoped to have some time to play this morning but it doesn’t look like it is going to happen.  Maybe I will have some time after they leave and before the girls get home to play a little.  I may have some time on Saturday to play but not sure.  I do need to get Jess’ birthday card made.  Maybe I will have time today to at least start on it.

I had not played with the C.A.S.E. the Catty challenge in a while so I decided to play along.  This week our challenge was to C.A.S.E. the Merry Little Christmas section of the Holiday catalog.  I looked through the section and for some reason I was drawn to the card on page 18.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I just loved the hint of stripes down the side.  I decided to use Stampin’ Up Merry Little Christmas dsp as it is one of my favorites from the catalog.  I just love the patterns in this paper.  The Old Olive diagonal striped paper was perfect for my stripe down the side.  I took some liberty and added a piece of dsp in the middle rather than a stamped image.  The Snowflake Sentiments bundle was used to stamp my sentiment and to cut out some snowflakes.  The sentiment was punched out using a 2″ circle punch.  It was mounted on a 2 1/4″ Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper circle.  The sentiment was added to the card front using dimensionals.  To add the snowflakes that were cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper I used Tombow multipurpose liquid glue.  Here is my completed creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I got a new card holder I am trying out.  I need to play with it some more as the photo was too small.  I will keep playing and see if I can work it out.  Have a Fabulous Friday and what do you think of the Stampin’ Up Merry Little Chrismas dsp?

Star of Light Snow

Hello Stampers ~ today I used 2 sets to create my Star of Light Snow.

I have been off all week by one day.  I posted my One Color Wonder video on Tuesday and not Wednesday as I thought it was Wednesday.  The same has been true for other things I had to do.  I kept looking in my planner at the wrong day.  Good thing I did not miss any appointments!

Well I got one project finished and started the second one.  I have the second one almost half finished.  I will be finishing up the second project today and then I need to make Jess’ birthday card as well as finish up some cards I started in North Carolina so I can post them here.  Sometime in there I need to make my videos for next week!  I also need to cut for my Christmas card stamp-a-stack.  It will be another busy day so good thing I do not need to go anywhere again!

My creation today began with an idea sparked by the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  I wanted to use the Let It Snow stamp to make a snow card.  When I looked at the Star of Light set, I saw snowflakes in the little stamp.  I decided to run with it.  I stamped the snowflake all over the Whisper White layer using a second generation stamping with Marina Mist.  I also stamped several others on scrap paper so I could cut them out with the matching framelit.  I added some of the sparkle ribbon from Sale-a-bration before attaching the card layer to my Marina Mist card base.  Using the Let it Snow stamp, I colored it with my markers to get the different colors.  The image was cut out with scissors as I wanted to back it with the punch.  It is easy to do as I just cut on the stamped outside lines.  The Everyday Label punch was used with a piece of Marina Mist then the sentiment was added.  The sentiment layer was attached to the card front using dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added my punched snowflakes with dimensionals.  Here is my completed creation.

Tranquil Tulips in red

Hello Everyone ~ don’t you just love Tranquil Tulips in Red?

Where did yesterday go?  I felt like I got up and all of a sudden it was time to go to bed.  I did not get any crafting time in but I did do some planning for some upcoming classes.  That means I will be in high gear to get it done today!  Since I don’t have to go anywhere and I don’t have any appointments I have until 5:00 when Jess gets home to get 2 classes designed.  I can do this but I have to stay focused!  I am on a mission!

Today I have another card that  created in North Carolina.  My friend has the Tranquil Tulips set and I opted for a simple card.  I began by stamping the Tranquil Tulips in red and adding some soft dots using the retired Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Smoky Slate ink around it.  I then brought this panel home to finish up my card.  Using a top folding card in Real Red, I embossed the front of the card base with the Hexagons embossing folder.  The stamped image panel was added with dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added a bow using some of the new Real Red  1/8″ ribbon in the Holiday catalog.  Here is the completed creation.

One Color Wonder Soft Sayings card kit

Hello Stampers ~ this One Color Wonder Soft Sayings card kit card is super cute!

Yesterday I had a hair appointment and I got a new stripe of color this time.  It was time to change it as it was starting to fade so this time we opted for a blue.  It is ok but I think I prefer the Magenta.  Not sure what I will get in 3 months time.  Any suggestions?

I did manage to get my video recorded yesterday.  It is a good thing as I needed for today’s post.  I didn’t get much else done since I was gone most of the day.  I won’t have much time today either as I have 2 appointments this morning and a workshop this evening.  I will try and sneak in a little bit of time to work on something on my To Do list.  Since it is supposed to rain the rest of the week it will be easy to knock a few things off my list.

Last week I drew Soft Sayings card kit and Garden Green.  When I looked at the stamp set I knew exactly what I was going to do.  I did add another element by using a card front from the kit as a stencil.  It turned out really nice and may try this same idea using another color and the flowers.  Here is my video of the creation.

 

 

 

And just so you can get an up close look at the card, here is a photo.

August Paper Pumpkin – Happy Birthday

Happy Monday Everyone ~ I played with the most recent PP and created this August Paper Pumpkin – Happy Birthday.

Well today is my youngest daughter’s birthday.  Michaela is 30 today.  I sent her a card since I am not able to be there.  I will also call her and sing to her.  I am not sure what her plans for her birthday are.  Next week is Jess’.  I have to get her card made this week but won’t be a problem since I know what I am doing as well as she is gone all day now so it will be easy to get done.

I took my August Paper Pumpkin with me to North Carolina.  We had quite a bit of crafting time this visit and I pulled this kit out one day and worked on it.  I had a request for some feminine birthday cards they could purchase.  I decided to play with this set and see what I could come up with.  I began by stamping the half scallops together to create a flower.  This was fussy cut and then mounted onto a Peekaboo Peach scallop circle.  The same half scallop stamp was stamped with Garden Green and cut into individual petals to form the leaves of the flower.  A 1/2″ circle punch was used to punch out a piece of gold glimmer paper.  This formed the center of the flower and was added using a glue dot.  To finish off the flower a large pearl was added to the center.  Using a piece of Whisper White card stock that was my card front layer, I stamped the half scallop stamp along the bottom of the layer.  A piece of retired gold washi tape was added just above the stamped images.  A ribbon and bow was added using some retired Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon.  This layer was added to a Peekaboo Peach card base.  I attached the flower to the card front using dimensionals.  I wanted a more feminine Happy Birthday sentiment so I used the one from the Sale-a-bration Sky is the Limit set.  It was stamped with Peekaboo Peach and punched with a retired large oval punch.  A scallop oval was punched using the retired scallop oval punch and added behind the sentiment.  The sentiment was added to the card front using dimensionals.  Here is my August Paper Pumpkin – Happy Birthday creation.
