Remarkable You Christmas Card

Who knew that Remarkable You stamp set could be used for a Christmas Card? I didn’t until I saw a card by Clare McDonald on Facebook. I always forget that we can stamp on our Designer Paper. For this card I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper and stamped with Memento Black Ink, then colored with my Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. After coloring the flowers and leaves I layered it…

Painted Autumn, Some Scraps from my Work Space

As I was cleaning up my work space, I noticed these 4 or maybe even more little 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares. I thought I should use those in a card. If I put them back in with the other paper I will lose them. Why not just whip up a quick card? So that’s what I did. I mounted the 1 1/2″ squares onto a 3 1/2″ Very Vanilla square and then that…

Happy Birthday Jocelyn!

October 1st was my oldest granddaughter’s birthday. Where has the time gone? I love to take my grandkids out to lunch and shopping for their birthdays. They love it too, because no brother or sister, just her. Jocelyn wanted to go to Panera’s for lunch and get her favorite, Broccoli Cheddar Soup in a bread bowl. This is the card I made for her. I love this technique.  I adhered the Whisper White piece down…

Gourd Goodness

What a fun name for a stamp set. I originally bought this set because of the beautiful leaves, but look at these gorgeous pumpkins. Its a two step stamp with both pumpkins. At first when I stamped the solid image, I thought, you really don’t need the 2nd stamp…….boy was I wrong. It totally makes the pumpkin “pop”. Then I “winked” it with Wink of Stella. The stems each have two stamps too. I am…

Painted Harvest Fall Card

I really love how this card turned out. I’ve seen several takes on this technique. I LOVE the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. What better way to show it off than with the word FALL, using the Large Letter Dies. I originally did the one of the left. When Patty and I got together a while back we made this card and I totally forgot the top two layers. They both work, but really like the…

Merry Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug

You may have seen this card yesterday. I put the wrong date in and it posted early before I had put in the text. So sorry for that. But now I have the text done so you can see how I made the card. Isn’t this a fun card? I totally cased it from Monica Gale. I loved everything about it, and it uses the Coffee Cups Framelits. The snowflakes are from Seasonal Layers Thinlits.…
