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.…

Glossy Paper Leaves

Here I go again, back to the Glossy Paper and Re-inkers. Watch my video HERE. This technique just screams FALL! don’t you think? On the other cards I did, I used a big piece and and then die cut. This time I die cut the leaves from Seasonal Layers Framelits and then used the re-inkers and water to spread the ink. Before the ink dried, I laid the cut out leaf (skeleton leaf) onto the…

Climbing Orchid Card

I know what you are thinking…….there are a LOT of stamps and dies in this set. It can be very intimidating, yes it can, but once you play with it, you will see how all the pieces go together. And when you pair this set with the Jar of Love, you have a great card. Thank you Patty Bennett! We started off with a Berry Burst card base and a piece of Whisper White cardstock…

Carols of Christmas Ornaments

When Patty and I got together a few weeks ago, we decided that we were going to use ALL the stamps in the Carols of Christmas set. I think these was our last card for the day. We needed to use those adorable ornaments. I said what if we used the the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to hang the ornaments from? Yes, and then draw the “strings” with a black marker. So we…

Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, You’ll Want them

Have you tried the Stickers in the Eastern Palace Bundle yet? They aren’t your normal “sticker” much nicer, and like the dies they nest inside each other, so you get more bang for your buck. Two sheets of 2 different designs.  I stuck my sticker to some Dapper Denim Cardstock and then die cut them with the matching dies. This is a pretty simple card, but with the gold makes it a really nice card,…
