A #Elfie Holiday Hello

Hello to you all my crafty friends! I’m sorry I didn’t post yesterday…we are in the process of moving my husband to Tennessee to start a new job. So we were packing a few last minute boxes and starting to load the moving truck. My daughter and I will move when he is settled and finds a house for us. This should be the last of the hiccups in my blogging for a little while. I have a couple cute cards to brighten your day. I made them using my featured product of the week, #Elfie. The first one is a simple card, with a little fussy cutting and coloring. The second one is a little less simple, but still just as cute.

This card uses a standard Real Red Card base. I cut a piece of Pool Party to measure 4 1/2 x 3 1/4. I stamped snowflakes in VersaMark all over this before adding my strip of ribbon. I took a piece of Whisper White approximately 3 1/4 x 2 3/4 and tore a strip off at the top. This kind of made it look like snow. I stamped my sentiment on the Whisper White using Memento ink.

For my elf, I stamped him in Memento ink, and colored him in using my Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive markers. His hair is Daffodil Delight and his face is Light Petal Pink. Then I fussy cut him and attached with dimensionals.

For this card, I used a Thick Whisper White Card base with a layer of Real Red and Pool Party DSP. I added a strip of Real Red down the side and stamped my sentiment in Memento Ink. I cut 3 Stiched Shape squares (appx 1 5/8″) and stamped my elves on those. I colored them in with my markers and blends, and attached them to the strip.

I just love these cute little guys, and am so glad I purchased this stamp set. Speaking of purchahsing, have you seen my host reward for the month of December?

#Elfie is here!

Good morning everyone! I have a new product of the week to share with you today. This week all of my projects are going to feature the #Elfie stamp set.

This is such an adorable set, and I am having so much fun playing around with it. I can’t wait to share all of my projects with you. To hold you over, here are a couple that Stampin’ Up! did.

I hope you’ll come back tomorrow for a fun project! Until then…

Happy Stamping!

Mini Hand Sanitizer Holder and Matching Card

Good afternoon my crafty friends! I have 2 projects to share with you today. I demonstrated both of them in my Facebook Live last night. I think they both turned out beautifully, and you could really cater the hand sanitizer holder to any occasion.

I’ll start with the instructions for my hand sanitizer holder. This is by no means an original design by me, there are numerous videos out there. For mine, I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock measuring 2″ x 11″. Score this piece, on the 11″ side, at 1/2″, 1 1/2″ 3 1/2″, 4 1/2″, 6 1/2″, 7 1/2″, and 8 1/2″. Fold and score on all the lines except the 6 1/2″ line. This line is just a guide. Using the Stitched Shapes dies, take the smallest oval and cut out between the 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ lines. This creates a

Using Early Espresso ink and a scrap of Whisper White, stamp and die cut the largest pumpkin. Using Terracotta Tile ink and a scrap of Terracotta Tile cardstock, stamp and die cut the largest maple leaf. You are then going to use scraps of Terracotta Tile and Gold Foil to cut some more leaves out with your dies.

Attach all your die cut pieces to the inside and outside. My sentiment is stamped on a piece pf Crumb Cake cardstock that is about 3/4″ wide. I stamped in Early Espresso. Now let’s move onto the card.

Start with a piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″. Use your Terracotta ink and the large maple leaf stamp to stamp leaves all over the card base. On a scrap of Terracotta, stamp the large maple leaf in VersaMark ink and cover with Copper Embossing Powder. Using your heat gun, set the powder.

Using Pretty Peacock, Terracotta Tile, and Gold Foil, die cut out some leaves. Stamp a pumpkin in Early Espresso and die cut. The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Crumb Cake that measures 3/4″ wide. It is stamped in Early Espresso as well.

Cut a piece of Soft Suede cardstock that measures 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and wrap a piece of the COme To Gather ribbon around before adhering to your card base. Using dimensionals, layer all of your elements onto your card front. Finish off the card by tying another piece of ribbon in a knot to the piece of the card base. Just in case anything is unclear, here is the video I did last night during my Facebook Live.

I am so thankful that you stopped by today and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoyed my projects and that you will leave me a comment with your thoughts. Until next time…

Happy Stamping!!!

Wishing You Well Maple Leaf

Good morning my crafty friends! I hope you all have fabulous things planned for the Thanksgiving Holiday tomorrow. This is my most favorite time of year! I am looking forward to a day with my family tomorrow and just having some time to reflect on things. I want to wish you all the happiest Thanksgiving! May your day be filled with family, good food, and great memories! Today I have a super simple, cute project for you today. It of course uses my featured product of the week…the Come To Gather Bundle

I adore this bundle, and wish I would have spent more time using it before now. There really are so many possibilities for using this set.

I started out with an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Crumb Cake card base. I embossed a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Crumb Cake with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and attached it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped a Maple Leaf in Early Espresso and die cut it, and attached with Dimensionals. I finished off the card by tying 2 pieces of Linen Thread into a bow and adhering it to the bottom of the leaf and attaching a Crumb Cake sentiment stamped in Early Espresso.

I could have colored in the leaf or maybe added a few small ones in different colors, but I like the muted look of this card. I really hope you enjoyed my project today and would love for you to leave a comment.

Season of Thanks Card

Hello to you all my crafty friends! I have an adorable, thankful card to share with you today. Starting with an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ Mint Macron Card Base, I stamped the maple leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macron.

I stamped some leaves in Mint Macron on the card base and added an Early Espresso and Come To Gather DSP layer.

I added some die cut leaves, a stitched shape oval, and some linen thread.

This card was inspired by a swap card I got…I CASE’d it because I thought it was so pretty. I do not remember who made it though.

I really hope you like my post today and that you’ll continue to stop by for the rest of the week. I have so many cute things to show you!!

Happy Stamping!

Thankful Stitched Rectangle

Hello to you all my crafty friends! I have a fun project for you today featuring the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut a square and then shortened it by cutting the square again, just a little shorter.

I layered several strips of Come To Gather DSP that I cut into banners under the rectangle.

The stamp set that I used was To Every Season. I love all of the colors in the designer series paper. Fall is my most favorite time of year.

Colour Combo Blog Hop October 2019

Hello everyone! Welcome to another edition of the Colour Combo Blog Hop! This is an international blog hop with demonstrators from around the world participating and showing off their skills. This month we were challenged to create a project using the colors Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, and Crushed Curry.

My creation is a card, and it is very simple and basic, but I love the way it turned out with the colors. My card base is Granny Apple Green 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, folded in half. The Whisper White Layer is 4 1/4 X 3 1/4. I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green, Lovely Lipstick, and Crushed Curry. I used a piece of Crushed Curry and die cut a stitched shape oval. I stamped my greeting in Lovely Lipstick and layered over a piece of burlap ribbon.

This is a short post today, and I really hope you enjoyed the project. Click the next button to go on to the next blog and enjoy all the other projects.

Happy Stamping!
