Happy 2014!

A new year has began once again.  Hopefully everyone will find happiness and fulfillment in the coming year. I am looking at job changes as well as other of my family.  That can always bring apprehension.  My youngest daughter will be graduating from High School and then on to new things as well this year.  I will become the empty nester unless my older children have to move back due to struggling times.  Hopefully they will find work and will be able to maintain life of their own.  Love them all and always glad to help as needed.

I created this card to celebrate the new year.  This is such a fun stamp but is now several years old.  It’s fun to find a new way to use something that is old.

New Years 2014

 

I used the embossing folder from the 2013 Holiday Catalog.  New gold baker’s twine from the 2014 Spring Catalog.  Like I said something old with something new.  The Champagne Glimmer Paper is  from the current catalog. Finally some stick on numbers from my scrapbooking supplies.   Turned out great.  It is a 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 square card — just for something different.  HAPPY NEW’S YEAR!

Truely Grateful

Today I am grateful for the wonderful things in my life.  I have a family that loves me.  Each member is important to me.  Thanks for great friends and community members.  With November just around the corner, I start to think about blessings in my life and I have started making my fall/November cards to send to those I am am thankful for.  I will  have a lot to make but I have a good start already.  Here is my share for today.  Check back for more.

This uses the Autumn Accent Die and three different embossing folders.  The polka dot, chevron, and the woodgrain.  This gives the leaves such fun texture.  Check out that burlap ribbon!  This is perfect for fall.  The button is the very vintage button on page 169 of the catalog – just add the linen thread and a glue dot.  The designer paper is from the new Sweater Weather paper series from the Holiday Catalog.  I fell in love with this paper when I saw it.  It will be perfect for my fall cards and projects and what I don’t use will work for those masculine cards.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set Truely Thankful out of the Holiday Catalog as well.  If you don’t have a Holiday Catalog and would like one, contact me and I will get you one, or you can see it on-line.

Fall Already!

It is definitely fall and possibly winter in our part of the world as the white stuff fell yesterday.  Didn’t quite cover the ground but the mountains got it.  It was very pretty but not so sure I am ready for it yet.  I have some fun fall cards that I have made to share with you .  Can’t say I can take the credit as they were found on-line, but I love making them just the same.

I used the Autumn Accent die to create a stencil and I sponged it with Crushed Curry and some Cajun Craze and then stamped it using the new “Truely Thankful” stamp set and the Expression Thinlits dies from the new Holiday Catalog.  Look at the fun candy dots in matching colors in the upper right corner.  These are so easy to use.  Just stick them on.

WWCC Out Reach Class

I am getting the opportunity to teach a class on Saturday.  We will be using the Autumn Accents Die (127812  pg. 192) from the catalog.  This turns out so beautiful and makes a wonderful fall decoration.  It will be a lot of fun.

The rhinestones add the additional sparkle.  Love this.  It is amazing how you can take white card stock, color it with a brayer and color it to make these beautiful leaves.

Hearts A Flutter

I am so excited about the new stamp sets and framelets in the new Spring Catalog.  I have been making things with the new Hearts A Flutter stampset all weekend and having so much fun. 

 

Three Cheers for a Happy Holiday

This card just makes me full of Happy!  Nothing makes me think of Christmas more than a festive Hot Chocolate on a snowy evening during the holiday season.

This card was created using Gumball Green Cardstock, Ribbon, and ink and Red Ridinghood DSP from the Rich Regals Patterns paper stack, Cardstock, and ink.  The Scentsational Season Stampset and coordinating die framelits made this a quick and easy card to make.  I love this cute mug.  I added a basic rhinestone to each cup for some added bling.

Thinking of you Wonderfally

I am not certain that Wonderfally is really a word except it seemed to fit my card for today.  This one was created using a card I saw through my online membership to Stamp Nation.  It is a great place to get ideas.  It only costs me $7.95 per month and I have learned so much from this site.

The leaves on this project came from the Wonderfall Stampset that is in the Holiday Catalog and cut out using the coordinating die.

I pulled out my big Shot to add texture to the More Mustard Cardstock with my square lattice folder and to the Chocolate Chip Cardstock I used the new Woodgrain embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog.   The frame around my sentiment was created from the Designer Frames Folders.  Check out that beautiful button.  I can’t get enough of the new Bronze Buttons.  The sentiment is a retired stamp but there are plenty to choose from in the current catalog.  I used More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and some Chocolate Chip ink.

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!  I am so excited as my college son will be home to share the holiday with us and so bummed at the same time as my oldest daughter and grandchildren will not be joining us. I hope you are all surrounded by friends and family this season.

Don’t forget about the on-line extravaganza going on currently — You can get some great deals that are sure to make a fun Crafty Christmas.

 

Christmas Tree Scentsational Style

I can’t help but copy and idea from some of the  wonderful stampers out there.  This one was re-created from Ann Marie Hile.  It used a whole lot of the fun products I have purchased.  I  love it. You can create it too or use it to inspire you to create something fabulous.

This was created using the gorgeous Be of Good Cheer DSP  and Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler Card stock from the big catalog and the Wonderful Cherry Cobbler Seam binding ribbon for the bow.  This stuff ties so beautifully.  With Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler you have a winning combination of Christmas colors.  I used  the Basic Rhinestones and Pearls to decorate my tree.  Just color your pearls with permanent marker in red.  The Tree was stamped using the Scentsational Season stamp set and cut out with the matching framelit dies using my Big Shot.  I also used my Big Shot to texture the white background using the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder after I cut it out using the new Window Frames die in the Holiday Catalog.  The Window Frames die is a set of six different sizes that can be layered.  I then used the Festive Paper Piercing Pack to punch the outline on my layer.  The Champane glimmer paper star was cut using the framelit from the same Scentsational Season framelit set. My framelit is a retired stamp but there are many to choose from in the current catalog that would work well.  It is layered onto the card using the word window and modern label punches.

Keep stamping my friends and creating fun.
