12 Weeks of Christmas!

Hello everyone! Today marks the start of my 12 Weeks of Christmas 2018.

I have done this in years past, using only Holiday sets. This year however, I wanted to do things a little differently. I decided to use some of the stamp sets in the Annual Catalog and make them Christmas-y! In doing this, I can showcase the VERSATILITY of all of our stamp sets and give you more creative alternatives.

Step-by-step tutorials will be sent out to my newsletter subscribers for FREE! If you are not yet a subscriber, sign up today using the little pop-up box when you first come to the page, this way you can get all the amazing tutorials too. I will also feature a handful of these projects in my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. This will be a by mail only option this year.

And now, on to the project!

I created this project using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I have showcased these Thinlits and the coordinating stamp set a lot, but this gives it a little bit of a different look/style.

20180910_123621.jpg

My cardbase is an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of Cajun Craze cardstock. I scored and folded it in half at 4 1/4″. I added a 5 1/4″ X 4″ piece of Very Vanilla. I stamped two paint spots from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set in Gray Granite ink. I stamped Happy Birthday from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set in Early Espresso three times. I added a  4″ X 2 5/8″ piece of Soft Suede. I ran this through my Big Shot in the Corrugated Embossing Folder first.

Meet My Mummy!

Hey everyone! I have an adorable mummy card for you today. I made this one to go with Frankie! I used a few basic things which can be found listed at the bottom of the post.

20180916_140232.jpg

Start with a Basic Black card base measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″.

I cut a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Then I tore it into strips. Sponge the edges of all the strips with Early Espresso Ink. Then lightly sponge the center of the strips using Gray Granite Ink. This will give them that weathered, mummy look.

Randomly attach these strips using SNAIL and leave a space open for your eyes.

20180916_140238.jpg

I punched 2 Very Vanilla circles using the 1″ Circle Punch and 2 Basic Black circles using the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Use the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker from the 2018-2020 In Color Markers to draw “veins” on the Very Vanilla circles. Now attach the Basic Black circles to the Very Vanilla circles to create your eyes.

20180916_140241.jpg

I popped both eyes up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed, and keep watching for more of my spook-tacular Halloween friends!

20180916_135926.jpg

Start with a granny apple green card base measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″.

I cut a piece of basic black measuring 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Then I fussy cut the bottom to resemble hair.

Just another Manly Monday!

Hey everyone! I am here today with an exciting Manly Monday card for you! I am on a mission to create as many masculine cards as I can. This is my way of pushing me outside of my crafting box.

20180910_123541.jpg

I used Pacific Point Cardstock (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″) as my card base. The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4″ X 4″. I ran that through the Corrugated Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I die cut 2 large and 2 small swirls from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits out of Pacific Point cardstock. I cut one swirly edge out of Smoky Slate using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The Soft Suede is 3 1/2″ X 2 1/2″. The Pacific Point layer is 3 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ and the top Whisper White layer is 3 1/4″ X 2 1/4″. My greeting is from Rooted In Nature, and is stamped in Gray Granite ink.

20180910_123548.jpg

This is just a close up of the swirls and the layers from the bottom.

Masculine Birthday Card

Good morning all! I am way behind on my posting, I have been so wrapped up in planning and creating for my 12 Weeks of Christmas, that I have let everything else fall to the way side. I finally have a new Manly Monday post for you!

20180910_103712.jpg

I started with an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of Vellum Cardstock. I stamped the Happy Birthday image from Birthday Wishes For You in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I added a 1 1/4″ circle with 1/4 of a 1″ circle and a piece of white and green twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

20180910_103724.jpg

Inside of the Vellum I added a 7″ X 4 1/2″ piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I scored this in half at 3 1/2″ and centered it on the Vellum card base. My patterened layer is a 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″ piece of Festive Famhouse Designer Series Paper. I added a 1 1/4″ and 1″ Circle with 1/4 of a 1″ circle and some white and green twine.

20180910_103731.jpg

I put a 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock on the inside of the Cherry Cobbler piece. I then used the other sentiment from Birthday Wishes For You and stamped it w=using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

20180910_103743.jpg

I spritzed my Balloons with some copper shimmer paint to give them a little shine.

20180910_103752.jpg

I used attached them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

August 2018 Paper Pumpkin

Good morning everyone! I am a little late getting these posted, and I did not do a video/Live Class this month as I have been super busy. I will be back on track next month however. I have my alternate projects for the August 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Blissful Blooms. I made 4 alternates contents, 1 piece of Old Olive card stock, 1 piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock, and a piece of Lace Ribbon.

Blissful Blooms Alternatives 1

I really like how these cards turned out. I usually add a few more extra products, but this month I wanted to try and stick with only the kit as much as possible.

Blissful Blooms Sympathy

For the first card, I cut apart an envelope and used the inside piece as my mat on a Lemon Lime Twist card base. I cut one of the card fronts in half and added the leaves and a tag from the kit.

20180829_1220225564900322929530326.jpg

Here you can see the leaves clearly.

20180829_1220296623281375083004157.jpg

I really like how this one turned out.

Blissful Blooms Thinking of You

For my second card, I cut out just the flower portion of a card front and attached it to the white piece of the card using dimensionals. I sponged the edges of the white card piece with Blackberry Bliss ink before attaching the flowers. I

20180829_122000912020282889879445.jpg

Aren’t those flowers pretty? I really liked this kit even though I am not big on Floral patterns.

20180829_121948431308055133416014.jpg

20180829_1215598641182106396131825.jpg

My third card is assembled on a Lemon Lime Twist card base. I fussy cut the butterfly and a few of the flowers from one of the card fronts. I added a piece pf the envelope in the corner, which is bordered with a piece of the silver foil side of the envelope as well.

20180829_1221155244272762952613036.jpg

I put a spiral of twine under my tag here which is attached with dimensionals.

20180829_1221017314946780073964199.jpg

I attached all the flowers with dimensionals as well.

20180829_1218044475158053875036232.jpg

For my final card, I used the other half of the card front from my first card, and attached it to an Old Olive card base. I sponged ink onto a piece of Lace Ribbon and added a piece of foil from the envelope over top. I added a twine bow and attache my tag over the ribbon.

20180829_1221589016900608394419904.jpg

20180829_1222157689839226362627195.jpg

I like how the ribbon looks sponged with the ink. I am very pleased with the way these cards turned out.

Happy Christmas Wishes

Hey! I know it’s a little early, but in all reality, Christmas will be here before we know it right? Here is another card I created using the Festive Farmhouse Suite. I copied this one from the catalog, but made a couple small changes.

20180815_1244473877593498714133871.jpg

I love the details on this house, and more importantly, I love the details in the framelits that coordinate with the stamp set.

20180815_1243398376642732596403449.jpg

Look at that cute little fence! There is a wreath and a bow too!!

Farmhouse Christmas

Good morning! I have another card for you today that uses items from the Festive Farmhouse Suite. I made this card for a swap that my upline is hosting for our team.

20180815_1245325061535585377214322.jpg

The base is Cherry Cobbler, I used a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, a piece of the 5/8″ Striped Burlap trim, and a 2″ Mossy Meadow circle that I embossed with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

20180815_12274389098856956026280.jpg

I also used the framelits to cut out the banner and some Basic Pearls. I really hope you like it and I can’t wait to share more with you!
