Clean & Simple Square

Happy Tuesday!  Today's card uses this week's Clean & Simple sketch.  My pictures are still lacking.  My phone just doesn't take the best pictures.  I guess I need to hurry up and buy a new SD card.  

The card base is a 5 1/4" square of Old Olive.  The next layer is a piece of Jolly Holiday DSP.  A strip of Cherry Cobbler and another strip of the DSP are used as a landing point for the sentiment/focal image.  It's from Perfect Punches and stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive on Very Vanilla.  The Cherry Cobbler center was punched with the 1 1/4" Circle punch.  The large Cherry Cobbler scallop was punched with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch.  I made the bow with some retired Old Olive taffeta.  The scallops are adhered to the card with dimensionals.  That's it. Easy peasy. 

Supplies(all SU!): Stamps- Perfect Punches.   Ink- Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive.  Paper- Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Jolly Holiday DSP.  Accessories- 1 14" Circle punch, 1 3/4" & 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punches, Old Olive taffeta (retired), mini glue dots, dimensionals.

A Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Happy Saturday!  Here's a card I made Thanksgiving morning before we headed out to St. Pete Beach to celebrate.  :)

The card base is Concord Crush.  Not your traditional Christmas color, but so very pretty.  I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder for the focal image.  The sentiment from All Holidays is stamped in Concord Crush and punched with the Decorative Label punch.  The edges of the punch and the image layer and the snowflakes themselves are all sponged with Concord Crush ink.  A piece of Concord Crush ribbon with a bow adorns the top of the card.  Rhinestone jewels highlight each of the snowflakes.  I also used them to highlight "Christ" in the sentiment.  He is, after all, the reason for the season.  :)

Enjoy your weekend!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- All Holidays.  Ink- Concord Crush.  Paper- Whisper White, Concord Crush.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Northern Flurry embossing folder, Decorative Label punch, Concord Crush ribbon, Rhinestone jewels, glue dot, stampin' sponge.

Gosh, I must be getting old!

Happy Wednesday!  

Like that title?  Well, just let me explain.  Somehow,  the years have been flying right by me!  Today is my son's 14th birthday!  *GASP*  How did that happen?  I just know I'm still 25!  ;)

Here's the card I made for him.   His favorite color at the moment is red, so that's where I got my color combo.  He's a huge sports nut (all of them! LOL), but since I don't have any sports stamps, I used the cupcake from Crazy for Cupcakes.  :)  The red card stock was run through the Big Shot on the Harlequin Texturz plate for some added dimension.  The DSP is from last year's Christmas pack, Dashing.  I used a piece of 3/8" twill tape to hide the seam between the papers.  Crumb Cake was used for the base and that and some Basic Black was thrown in for mats.  The cupcake was stamped with Jet Black stazon and highlighted with my Real Red marker.  The flame is More Mustard, and I just had to put some bling on it.  Maybe he won't notice.  :P

We're going out to dinner at CiCi's (both my kiddos love that place) tonight to celebrate, and then it's home for cake and presents!  

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps-  Crazy for Cupcakes.  Ink- Jet Black Stazon, Real Red.  Paper- Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Dashing DSP (retired).  Accessories-  Big Shot, Harlequin Texturz plate, 3/8" twill tape, Ticket Corner punch, Dazzling Diamonds, 2-way glue pen, dimensionals.

A Thanksgiving Card

Happy Saturday!  My kiddos are so glad to be off for the next 9 days.  :)  

Thursday was the Great American Teach-In here in Hillsborough County, and I made a Thanksgiving card with a class of 5th graders.  Their teacher was both of my kids' 5th grade teacher.   It was fun going back and catching up with her.  :)  The bonus...the kids loved making the card.  I had to admit, I was a bit nervous, but even the boys enjoyed it.  I'm going to go back and make something for the 'winter holidays' with them.  

The card base is the retired color, Ruby Red.  I had an entire unopened package of it in my stash.  The Very Vanilla layer was stamped with the Medallion stamp and a sentiment from Falling Leaves.  They stamped a corner of the envelope with the Medallion stamp, too.  Then the kids ran the card stock through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder.  That was a hit.  Then it was off to the spritzing station to spritz the card and envelope with the Color Spritzer tool.  That was an even bigger hit.  :) Then since we still had time, they all ran the envelope flap through the Big Shot to emboss it.  I had such a great time.  I need to think about having a kids' class.  :)

(Sorry about the picture quality.  My SD card decided not to work anymore, so I had to take the picture with my phone.)

Supplies(all SU!): Stamps- Medallion, Falling Leaves.  Ink- Ruby Red (retired).  Paper- Ruby Red (retired), Very Vanilla. Accessories-  Big Shot, Color Spritzer tool, Square Lattice embossing folder.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Simple Snow Swirled Christmas

Here is the 2nd card I made Sunday night.  I CASEd a card by Robin. (When I grow up, I want to be her !)  The base is Night of Navy.  I ran it through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, although you can't really see it in the picture.  (You can click on the picture for a larger view.)  The image and sentiment are from Snow Swirled.  A Rhinestone jewel adorns the tree top, and I covered all the swirls with Dazzling Diamonds.  It's another simple but pretty card that will be easy to mass produce and mail.  :)

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Snow Swirled.  Ink- Night of Navy.  Paper- Whisper White, Night of Navy.  Accessories- Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Rhinestone jewels, Dazzling Diamonds.

Dasher in Silver

Happy November!  I hope you all had a fun, safe Halloween!  My kiddos went with their dad to his mom's house.  I had the house to myself for a few hours.  :)  Of course, I decided to create something.  This Dasher card is one of 2 simple Christmas cards I made last night.  





















The card base is Night of Navy.  The next layer is Whisper White that has been stamped with the snowflakes from Snow Swirled.  I stamped them in Bashful Blue and then again in Night of Navy.  Dasher was stamped on Whisper White with Versamark and then embossed with Silver EP.  The image is layered onto another piece of Night of Navy.  A piece of Night of Navy taffeta is the finishing touch.  It's a simple card that will be easy to reproduce, and it's nice and flat for mailing.  

Have a fabulous Monday!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Snow Swirled, Dasher.  Ink- Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Versamark.  Paper- Night of Navy, Whisper White.  Accessories-  Silver EP, Night of Navy taffeta.
