Season Greetings Poinsettia

I made this card for my sister. I was hoping to make a special card for her, but I think I over did the beads on the poinsettia. Oh well, she liked it, or at least she said she did.
I used a cuttlebug folder for my background mat. I stamped out the 5 petal flower and cut each petal apart and glued it to make this flower. Then added the pine sprigs and then beads for the middle of the flower. I used a white satin ribbon for the backing of the flower and to go around the card front. I used the gold sticker for the Season Greetings.
I had a lot of time on this card, and then to put to may gold beads on the flower. I know the next one if there is a next one not to add to many beads.
Thanks for stopping by...
I think you have had a lot to look at for the night, maybe I can get more on here tomorrow night.
Thanks again for checking out my blog.

Dancing Snowman

Isn't this the cutest snowman.
You just gotta love him.
I bought him at a convention from Designs Unlimited.
And this company will only sell at conventions.
He is so holly jolly and cute.
I colored his hat and scarf with Tombow Markers.
Added the tag, which is punches from Stampin Up.
A fancy blue ribbon and done.
My card base is navy, which looks like black in this picture, but really navy and a lighter blue for the mat
and then the White snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Merry Christmas Snowflakes

I made this card and really liked the white snowflakes I added to the red cardstock. Don't remember the company on the snowflakes, but I just put them everywhere and it wasn't a big background stamp either. Just a little stamp with a couple of snowflakes on it. I used the Green Polka Dotted paper from Bo Bunny and white to accent the card. And the glittery red ribbon was a must on this card. The oval tag was punched with punches from Punch Bunch. Only thing left to do was add the brads on the tag. Done and really like this card alot.

Wishing you the joy Christmas brings

Very elegant card. Love the holly branches. Wow, my holly branches has a lot of glitter on them and they are really to shinny to see how nice they are. Sorry about the poorly taken picture.
This is another one of the new Great Impressions November Stamps. I colored the branches with Tombow Markers, a red glaze pen to the red berries and glittered everything. Adding the final touches to the card I added a Red and Gold Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you aren't bored with my cards yet. I still have a few more to add.

Seasons Greetings

I like this card with all the shinny glitter on it. The green dotted paper is popped up from the card so the bulb could hang from under it. Wow that was hard to say in a few words. I think you know what I meant. The bulb is popped up also.
Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: Bo Bunny and my stash
Embellishments: Ribbon, Silver Thread and Candy Cane Glitter.

Merry Christmas Santa

Hello Santa...
This is one of the new Great Impressions Christmas Stamps. Santa was painted with a new paint called Inspirations by Creative Inspirations, well, it is like Shimmerz. They are really shimmery. I only have a few of the colors. They make 55 colors. The one I used is called Garnet and Fairy Dust. It was rather easy to paint with a small paint brush and getting the shiny colors was fantastic. Anyway, the design paper is from a Christmas Stacker and blue and white was from my stash. I used the label punch from Stampin Up for the label. And gold brads to accent the card.

Merry Christmas Bird

Inside of card This card is awesome and has a lot of parts and pieces to it.
I love the red, green and brown cardstock together. I know it looks black, but it really is brown.
I seen this tutorial on SCS and I thought it would look nice with this bird stamp. Wow, I was right, I love it.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: Bo Bunny and my stash
Embellishments: Stampin Up Punches and Tombow Markers.

Sweet are the Joys

Inside of the Card
This card is so colorful to me.
Love the stocking stamp.
As you can see the Joy Scalloped circle stays on the inside of the card when opened.
I liked this card when I seen it on someones blog.
So who ever the design belongs to thanks for the inspiration.
I used Tombow markers to color the stockings and then I added gold dots and glitter to the stockings.
I can remember where the stocking stamp was from, but the inside verse is from Great Impressions. If you would like to know about the stocking stamp, email me and I can find my stamp and let you know.

Merry Christmas Snowflakes

This isn't one of my favorite cards this season. I liked the Snowflake embossing folder from Sizzix, but when I tried to sponge the snowflakes with a Brillance Blue Ink Pad, that is when it changed as not one of my favorite cards. Love the Large Snowflake punch from Stampin Up and I used a Martha Stewart little snowflake on top of the large snowflake and glittered both of them, and added blue gel stone in the middle to give the snowflakes some color. I added a tag and ribbon to finish the card.

Happy Christmas

Isn't this stamp georgous. I love it. So many way it can be used. I stamped it on beige/tan cardstock with Stazon ink, I needed to get a good image. I like how the Stazon worked and I didn't need to emboss it. Then I wanted some stripes and I had this striped paper from one of the Christmas Stackers. Worked fine for me. Added ribbon and a button. Done. This card was simple and quick. I used it in my workshops and probably did about 75 of them, so I needed simple and quick. Hope you like it. Oh I forgot to tell you that I got the stamp in the dollar bins at a local craft store. Way worth a dollar to me.

I have been away tooooooo long

I really need to get some of my new cards on this blog. So get you something to drink and also eat. It might take that long to see all of them. Or come back again later and finish seeing my new creations.
Thank you for stopping by......

Season's Greetings (Stampin Up)

I made this note card at the Strongsville Convention in October. Very Cute and nice to give to someone on their gift. The envelope is behind the note card and it is white. It is all Stampin Up items. The envelope was run through the Big Shot with the snowflake folder. The bulb was stamped with Real Red Ink and punched out with the new Bulb Punch. I added the pearl in the center of the snowflake. And the tag was punched with the new Label Punch. It is a 3 x 3 square.


Another fast and simple Christmas Card. Love the stockings. Colored with Tombow Markers and Glittered a lot of the stocking to get the shimmery look and put some Clear Gel Dots on the red strip of cardstock. I added the Joy Sentiment and used punches to pop it out from the card. When the card opens, the black scallop circle is glued to the back of the card, so it looks like there is a bite out of the front of the card. I liked how it turned out even if it looked like a bite was taken out of the card. Cute Cute Cute..... *

Stamps: Inkadinkado
Paper: My Stash
Embellishments: Punches, Gel Dots and Glitter.

Let it Snow

Inside of Card...

How do you like this snowman?
He's a cutie. And to open the card and see him,
wow, to cute.
On the front of the card I used several punches to make the snowflakes popped up.
And gorgeous Bo Bunny paper (doublesided too.)
I added a Red Gel Dot in the middle of the snowflake.
For the inside of the card, I cut a small square in the background paper to make the snowman pop out. Love how it turned out. With the A2 Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder for the background it turned out nicely. It is hard to see the snowflakes on the background, but they are there. A touch of Shinny White Ribbon and done. *

Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: My Stash and Bo Bunny
Embellishments: Punches, Gel Dots and Shinny Ribbon

Season's Greetings

I loved this card as soon as I seen it on the internet. It is just adorable I had to case it. I don't remember where I seen it, as I was blog hopping, so if this is your card, thank you for your inspiration. I changed a few things on the card.

* I run the Stampin Up A2 folder through the cuttlebug and added some punched red dots from a handheld punch. I added the silver ribbon to the top of the bulb and then a wider silver ribbon around the top of the bulb. Touching it off with a snowflake from a EK small punch and a Rhinestone. The hardest part making this card was adding the red dots, as I glued them with the multi-Tommbow glue with some tweezers. *

Inside of the card...
This sentiment was found in a dollar bin at a local craft store. I liked it alot and it went well with the bulb front of the card. *

Stamps: Endless Creations and dollar store
Paper: My Stash
Embellishments: Punches (Stampin Up and Ek Success), ribbon and rhinestones.

Jingle all the Way

Yet another way to use the gorgeous snowman.
Supporting the beautiful pine swag with bells.

Colored with Tombow Markers. I sponged the Jingle all the Way circle with red ink.
Stamps: Great Impressions

Embellishments: Shimmers and a Square Scallop Punch

Merry Christmas Penguins

* Inside of card

This snowman is so versatile it goes with any stamp. Here it has the penguins in front of him. The penguins are stamped, trimmed and popped up away from the snowman. Colored with Tombow Markers. The inside of the card just has two cute happy penguins added to the bottom of the card.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: My Stash
Ink: Stason Black

Snowman Village

Another adorable snowman card. This is so pretty. And the photo doesn't help this card at all. My snowflakes in the sky are so blurred, but you can see that they are there anyway. Love the fence and the snow on the trees. Colored with Tombow Markers. *
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: Bo Bunny and my stash
Ink: Versafine (Black Onyx)
Embellishments: Red Buttons and Glitter.

Snowman Swirling Snow

*Inside of the card.

How cute is he?
Cute Cute Cute...
Just lovin this snowman. And so easy to create the card. Coloring the hat, scarf and snowflakes, adding buttons and glitter for snow. Done. I like that idea.
I don't know what happened to the buttons when I took this picture, they don't have the glitter spot in the middle of them and the glitter doesn't photo well at all.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: My Stash
Ink: Versafine (Black Onyx)
Embellishments: Red Buttons and Glitter.

Holiday Greetings

I love this snowman, and the birdhouse is so pretty. Perfect combination for this card. *
I stamped the snowman and birdhouse on white 110# paper. They are colored with Tombow Markers. I added a red brad for the holly on the birdhouse and of course I glittered everything. The Red polka dotted ribbon worked fabulous with the red scarf on the snowman. The scallop edge was also perfect for the card and adding the red dots on each scallop finished the card. The inside has the sentiment with the scallop edge and red dots.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: My stash
Embellishments: Red Brad, Red & White Polka Dotted Ribbon, Scallop Border Punch (SU) and Glitter

Happy Thanksgiving Turkey

Oh ...
cute - cute - cute
This turkey sitting on a fence post. He was very easy to color with the Markers. And with a bit of glitter, he did sparkle, of course my camera didn't pick up the glitter very good. I used the Nestie Label (1).
* Don't you just love the sentiment for the inside of my card. I thought it was cute, but for my class, I also had a very nice Thanksgiving sentiment incase somebody didn't want this sentiment. *

Stamps by Great Impressions and Two Much Fun.


Happy Halloween

So Ghostly ... Cute and not scary at all.

Another Halloween Card. Love the Ghost Trio. Also using the cuttlebug folder Spider Web for the background layer. And the cute spider. I used 3 Gel stones for the embellishments. Of curse they are clear so the designer paper would show underneath them.

Love the inside of the card.
I could have colored the fence.
I liked it like it was.
Stamps by Great Impressions

So Thankful for You

How cute is this Scarecrow? I think he is adorable. Also he was fun coloring with markers. I used the cuttlebug folder Autumn for the background layer, added some Jute cord and done. Very easy to do and I love how how this card turned out.

This is the inside of the card and the Sentiment that I used.

Happy Halloween

Another Halloween Card. I can't believe I made these 2 cards in the same day. I have been busy getting ready for a Christmas Workshop, but needed these cards real quick.
This card has the spider web (A2 folder from Cuttlebug) on the yellow cardstock. That spider web seems like it can go on any halloween card. Then I stamped another spider web on white cardstock. I added a little glitter on some of the lines in the web to make it sparkle a little. Added the spider, ribbon, black brads and done. I like the way this card turned out. I am away from my craft room and I dont remember who has the spider and the web stamps. If you would like to know, just email me and I will let you know. This set also has the witch that is on the next card. *

Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoy all your comments.

Happy Halloween

I needed to make a Halloween Card for the Club that I am in and here is what I come up with. Love the colors. Very colorful Halloween colors. I love the spider web (an A2 folder from Cuttlebug) on the purple cardstock. Shows up nicely with the white, black and orange. I glued a circle of yellow cardstock for the moon and stamped the witch over top of it. The witch should have been in the moon more, but I wasn't going to try it again. *
Stamps: Sentiment from Great Impressions.
Sorry I don't remember the company for the witch stamp set and I am away from my scrappin room right now.

Embellishment: Green Brads

Ghostly Greetings

Isn't this bunny ghost cute? This bunny is called Floopsy and he is from My Favorite Things. There are so many stamps of Floopsy, and I really like this one.
With Halloween on itsway real soon,
I wanted to use this stamp before it gets put away until next year.
I hand wrote the Boo and stamped an orange heart below it.
Love all the halloween colors.
I used the rectangle punch and cut it down for my sentiment.
The ghost is popped up on the card. *

With Sympathy

I thought this image would make a wonderful Sympathy card. I like how it turned out. So pretty. Also it is clean and simple card.
The image was stamped with Brillance Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Added white sheer ribbon and I thought that was all the card needed.
Stamps: Great Impression
Ink: Brilliance and Versafine Black
Paper: My Stash and Bo Bunny Polka Dot
Embellishments: Ribbon and Fiskars Border Punch

Thank You So Much

Thank You So Much...
I love the colors of this card.
This time of the year is so pretty with all the leaves changing and falling.
I saw this card on someone's blog and I don't remember where I seen it.
So thank you, who ever did this card for your inspiration. I changed a few things on the card so I wouldn't be coping the original version of the card. I love the sponging around the edges, it gives more color and depth to the image. And the vase is punched out and the stamp image is added behind the punched vase.
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes (Stampin Up) and Great Impressions
Inks: Chocolate Chip (Stampin Up)
Paper: My stash
Embellishments: Gold Brads, Punches from Punch Bunch and Fiskars

Thank You ...Wildflower

I think this is my favorite wildflower card. Loving the brown and lavendar colors. And the Lacy border punch really adds to the card.
Stamp: Great Impressions
Ink: Versafine Brown
Paper: Chocolate Chip and White
Embellishments: Ribbon and Rhinestones (my stash)
Punch: Martha Stewart
Thank You for stopping by and come back soon...

Thinking of You ... Wildflower

Love the color of this card. And more Wildflowers. Almost done with all the wildflowers that I did for the theme of my last workshop. I think all the cards turned out very nice. This card was stamped with Cranberry Color Box Ink. I bought this stamp a while ago and it wasn't mounted, so I don't have any idea where I got it or the company it came from. If anyone knows, let me know. I have a few ladies wanting to buy one. I thought it was DRS, but I looked at there catalog and it wasn't in there, so must not be them. The rubber stamp is a gray rubber. Anyway, I did a lot of layers on this card and I think that is why it looks so nice. The paper is Cranberry with pink and green layers. Attached the rhinestones on the right side and on the pink border. Last but not least, the layered oval with the sentiment.

Punches from Martha Stewart and Stampin Up.

Just Because You're Special

Another Wildflower image that I did for my last workshop. I like how this one turned out. I stamped 3 different wildflower stamp images and used 3 different colors of ink on each one of the stamps. Also I stippled a creamy color all around the images. When I got all the stamping done on this card, I added a layer of acetate ontop of the stamped images with the lime green small brads. Now the card is ready for the lime green hummingbird which was pop-up for another layered look. Very colorful card I think. And the sentiment was just perfect for a thinking of you card. Wow! No ribbon, I usually use ribbon on all my cards.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: Black, Terra Cotta and White (from my stash)
Ink: Color Box and Stampin Up

Trick or Treat

Don't you just love the Hedgehogs? I think they are so cute.
Halloween is almost here, so I thought I would get started with a Halloween Card.
I made my own Design Paper with words about Halloween. And the purple cardstock was perfect with the black ink. I almost didn't want to cover it up. I used a Bright Green for my card base. Added Orange and purple for the mats. I stamped the Trick or Treaters on white and colored them with Prisma Pencils. I should have blended them, but they looked alright to me. I popped up the image after adding the black mat to it. Then added the olive green polka dot ribbon to the left side of the card.
Stamps: Retired Stampin Up Hedgehogs and Dollar Store Halloween Words.
Cardstock: My stash
Ink: Black Versafine and colored with Prisma Pencils
Embellishment: Olive Polka Dot Ribbon

Fairy Birthday Card

This is the 2nd and last Fairy card for this month. Thanks goodness there is no more stamps this month with fairies. I like this fairy card better than the other one.

I started this card by cutting the cardstock 4 1/4 x 11. So it opens different than the average card. I put 2 slots in the top of the card base and threaded the silver ribbon down through the front slots and twisted it in the back of the card and then threaded the ribbon ends up through the front. That makes a nice bow, if the ribbon is the right size. This ribbon was more stiffer and needed more messing with it to make it look nice. But I think I got it okay. I used a Nestie label for my first mat, a Scalloped circle in a light blue, the Fairy image (which was stamped with color box chalk Sky Blue ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder) on a circle. And last I punched the scallop eyelet border on the bottom. I cut a large piece of white cardstock for the inside verse which was a birthday sentiment. You can see the inside bottom behind the scallop edge.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Inks: Colorbox Sky Blue
Cardstock: Navy, Light Blue and White
Embellishes: Silver Ribbon
Other: Nestie Label One and Scallop border Punch.

Frolicking Fairies Birthday Card

I am not sure I like this card at all.
The color combo is okay, but the fairies, not liking them at all.
The card was very simple to do, I stamped the wildflowers yellow and green inks and added the fairies in Versafine Brown. Added the sentiments at the top and added the brown satin ribbon to seperate the image from the sentiments. Of course I needed more of something to the card, so I added a yellow polka dot bow to the brown ribbon.
I think that is all this card needed to look okay for fairies.
And with the birthday sentiment inside, it makes it okay for a little girl's birthday.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Ink: Colorbox Chalk Green and Yellow amd Versafine Brown
Paper: My Stash
Embellishments: Brown and yellow ribbon from my stash.

A Little Pickup

Here's a very casual get well card. Love the pick up truck and the colors are great together. With a touch of blue satin ribbon and the silver bows made it so that you could mail it for a male or female. I colored it with colored pencils and blended it with OMS. The DP is from Bo Bunny.

Another She's A Lady

This card is done the same as the other one, just using different pencils and paper. I don't know what one I like the best. I just love this stamp set. And this stamp set comes with a poodle, plus shopping bags and a purse. So I want to do the poodle with this lady next.

She's A Lady

Don't you just love this Lady....

I think she's pretty and so elegant looking.
She is colored with pencils and blended with OMS. The gold trim done with a gel pen. I layered the image on the Label 4 Nestie. The background mat was done with an Embossing Folder called Vines. The paper is from my stash. I added a band of white and gold ribbon and added pearls on the side.
Stamp: There She Goes Rubber Stamps
Paper: My Stash
Embellishments: Ribbon, Pearls and EK Embossing Folder
Coloring: Prisma Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits.

With Sympathy

I love how this card turned out. So elegant looking.
I used Sage Shadow Ink from Stampin Up.
And I don't remember the name of the Designer Paper, but it is really shimmery.
And the ribbon is from my stash, and it is shimmery also. So it perfectly matches the Designer Paper with that shimmery look.
The stamps are from Great Impressions.
Thank You for visiting my blog and I hope you are enjoying my cards and that they may give you inspiration in some way.
