Oh Christmas Tree

Hello fellow stampers, and friends!  Yes, I managed to create a Clean and Simple card.  It was a happy accident because I struggle so very much with CAS designs.  I am envious of the artists who can pull it off time-and-time again.

Here I pulled out, for the first time, a lovely Christmas Tree and sentiment from Technique Junkies new Christmas sentiments release called Oh Christmas Tree, set of 4.

Would you believe I have started listening to Christmas music already?  Yup, I’m one of “Those” people.

Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t forget.  I have close to 200 tutorials that I did in photo step-by-step and videos.  Please find at the top of this page

Gnome for Christmas

Help, I’ve been invaded by these October gnomes in my studio. To be honest, these darling pinch-my-cheeks little fellas and gal are having a lot of fun with me.  Today I am showcasing a trio of tags to add that darling touch to my gifts, and even to wine bottles, handmade hot chocolate packages, etc.  Everyone loves a darling touch that says, “I love you.”  Gnome for Christmas, and gnome all year long as far as I’m concerned.

To bring these cute little fellas, and gal, home to you, use the above code for a 10% discount.  This discount applies to your entire shopping cart by-the-way.  Enjoy the close up photos below.

Happy Holidays!

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Olaa!  Technique Junkies has a brand new Christmas sentiment set called Oh Christmas Tree, Set of 4.  The sentiment here has been highlighted with die cuts, designer paper, and black cardstock.  Nothing says traditional Christmas more than these colours, which are so popular this year.  I even own a pair of leggings in the pattern of my designer paper.

I made a set of cards using sentiments from this set, and are going to be the perfect gift for an upcoming birthday.   A set of Christmas cards gives a personal touch that everyone loves.  I love to receive cards.

Have a great weekend!

Dueling Darling’s November Duel

Hi friends!  It’s the 15th of the month and it’s time for another duel between the Divas and Dazzlers.  I’m a Dazzler, and this is the very fun kit that Terry S. sent us.  Totally awesome duel because I like Halloween and I like gnomes.  Terry S., thank you for such a generous kit (which came with a double-sided mask.  One side fall leaves and the other Halloween).

I’m pretty happy with myself because I managed to add ribbon.  I cannot tie bows all that well and I wanted to try out a new technique of making a bow that I found on Pinterest.  Images were coloured with Prisma Colour coloured pencils.

 

Supplies:

Images:  Photoplay Gnome for the Holidays Halloween; Designer Paper:  Photoplay potions & spells, hocus pocus, batty, and Paperstudio polka dots; Gina Marie enamel dots, paper studio gems; Ribbon:  The Ribbon Boutique

Thanks for popping by!

Holy Night Silent Night

Wow, what an awesome release, eh? (sorry, I’m Canadian and say “eh” all the time).  I hope you had the chance to view the new release work from the Design Team.  My dimensional card uses Holy Night Silent Night to signify a very important event in the village of Bethlehem, of which was added using die cuts.

 

Using pale blue cardstock, I blended three colours of blue ink onto the cardstock; leaving the ink to air dry over night  (as I made multiples of this card), then added Bethlehem dies.  Once they were in place, I added Holy Night Silent Night with white embossing powder.

Beautiful Mandala

Hello folks!  Hope you’re week is off to a good start.  My, has it cooled off, eh?!  Sitting at a bonfire over the weekend was cold.

 

I’ve been having a lot of fun stamping over the last couple of weeks.  This set was enjoyable to make, and will be a nice addition to the package of cards that I am making for a friend for Christmas. I plan to make coordinating envelopes for all 30 cards that I am including into my gift set.

Beautiful Mandala looks so pretty heat embossed.  It’s as delicate as a doily.

The details for each card is listed below, so that you can recreate your own cards.

Card 1

Distress Oxides:  Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron were blended on background

Stamped using SU Pretty Peacock and white embossing powder.

Hello

Hello folks!  Have you been enjoying the cooler temperatures this week?  Ahhh, so nice.  Living in Southern Ontario, one isn’t used to such a dry, hot summer.  This beautiful summer was a write-off with having to wear my boot cast for 8 weeks.  The cast is now off and I’m going to be starting physiotherapy soon.  No more tripping in pot holes for me!  LOL.

I really like circle stamps, and Modern Circles set of 9, is a fun one to stamp with.  There are so many possibilities.  I encourage you to click on Modern Circles set of 9, to see all the samples from the Design Team.  This set has been popular with us because it is so versatile and can be used for any occasion. Paired with the Circles, is “Hello” from Five Fab Phrases set of 10.  Once again, I encourage you to click on the Five Fab Phrases to see more examples of how the phrases have been used.

Have a great rest of your week!  Thanks for stopping by.

Dueling Darlings – A Roaring Good Time

 

It’s the 15th of the month and time for another duel between the Divas and Dazzlers.  This month Heather is hosting the Diva’s and I am hosting the Dazzlers.  It’s so much fun.

This month we have an extra special treat for you.  Stamps, from CC Designs, has a stamp set for men of the twenties, and a stamp set of women of the twenties.  Heather and I thought it would be fun if I placed a 20’s man in my kit and she place a 20’s lady in her kit.

The 1920s in the United States, called “roaring” because of the exuberant, freewheeling popular culture of the decade. The Roaring Twenties was a time when many people defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards

Let’s see what the rest of the team did:

 

Dazzlers:

Terry S
Darlene
Jeanette

Beth (me)
Shelly
Terry L
Tracie
Debby B

Divas

Kelly
Barb
Carol
Judy
Heather
LJ
Suzy
Tami
