Merry Christmas…

Today’s card is one we created in Crafty Creations last Friday.  It is using the “Dress Up” Framelits. 

With the school holidays being on in Queensland at the moment, I always try to create cards for any of the kids that may attend with their parents, but still doing it for the adults too.

I’ve seen cards using the “Dress Up” Framelits around the Internet & thought it would be good to create our own using the same set & turn it into Mrs Claus’ dress.  The ladies loved it as it was something a little different to tress, baubles, etc.  A couple of them had already earmarked their card to certain girls!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

I’m Back…

My postings over the last couple of months have been very far & few between.  I do hope to be back & posting more often.  Things have been a little crazy with me of late, but fingers crossed it is “full steam ahead”.

Today’s card has been created for my Volunteer Class we had this arvo.  It is also a perfect way of using all that retired DSP that we have on hand but don’t want to get rid of at the time.  In fact, this paper is from a couple of years ago & yes, I hadn’t even cut into it.

Well, you will be happy to know that I have created a couple of cards from it which means that there is not that much of it left – doing a happy dance!

Have you noticed there is no stamping on this card.  BUT, I did use MDS for the “Happy Birthday”. 

I originally found today’s card on Pinterest & have it sitting there for some time to do.  Thank you so much for your inspiration!

Happy Birthday…

… to one of my brother’s.  I have 2 brothers who celebrate their birthdays this month & only a couple of days apart.
 
Today’s card is the one I created for the younger of the 2.  When he was younger he rode competitive Cross Country, so I thought this stamp, although retired, would be perfect for him.
 
I have actually completed all my birthday cards for January & February & have them all written out & ready to post about 10 days prior to the date.  I can’t believe I am back to my old ways – fingers crossed that it will continue throughout the year!

2014…

… is fast approaching & with the new year comes the thoughts of new calendars.  Today’s share is just that – a 2014 calendar!!!!!
 
I originally created a couple of calendars for the Handmade Expo 2 weeks ago just to see how the reaction would be & to see if people would actually be interested.  Much to my surprise, they flew off the table.

I don’t have a tutorial for you today, as they were a last minute thought.  Thinking that they would not sell, I had all intentions of doing a Tutorial once I got home.  However, in saying that, I will have one up & running in the next couple of weeks for you.

SC 092/13…

Crikey these weeks come round fast.  It just seems like yesterday that we had our last challenge, but looking at my last post, I haven’t posted much in the last couple of weeks.  Hopefully, that will be fixed this week.

It was my turn to do the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & thought it would be great if we had a Colour Theme.  “Pool Party”  seems to be the in-colour for Christmas this year, so this should be an easy colour for everyone to join in the fun.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any measurements for my card this week.  I sold it last Sunday at the Handmade Expo.  I had completely forgotten that I had created it for this challenge & only took a photo at the last moment, else I would have had to create another card.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Ornament Keepsakes, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink – Island Indigo, Pool Party
Cardstock – Whisper White, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Smokey Slate
Embossing Folders – Pretty Print, Stylish Stripes
Framelits – Ornament Keepsakes
Punches – 2 1/2″ Circle, Word Window, Modern Label
Ribbon – 1/8″ Silver
Accessories – Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

I run the piece of Island Indigo CS through the BS using Stylish Stripes EF.  This is fast becoming one of my favourite folders.  The piece of Pool Party CS was again put through the BS, this time using Pretty Print EF.  I then ran a piece of the Silver Ribbon across the middle of the joins & tied a bow.  I adhered both these embossed pieces to a piece of Whisper White CS prior to adhering to Base Card – Smokey Slate.

I stamped 3 different size snowflake images onto Whisper White CS – 1 x Island Indigo, 1 x Pool Party & a smaller one again in Island Indigo. The 2 largest were then run through the BS using the matching Framelits prior to layering on top of each other with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut out the middle of the small snowflake & adhered to the centre.

I punched a circle from Whisper White CS with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, adhered to Base Card prior to adhering the snowflakes to the centre with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White CS in Pool Party Ink, punched with the Word Label Punch & adhere to a piece of Island Indigo which had been punched with the Modern Label Punch.  It was then adhered to the Base Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I placed a small Rhinestone Jewel in the centre, as well as either side of the sentiment.

To see what Kris has created, head on over to Sunny Challenges & check it out.  Why not join us for this fun challenge.  We love seeing your wonderful work & leaving comments on your blog.
