  1. Throwback Thursday!

    Throwback Thursday

    Hi All!

    The purpose of Throwback Thursday is to “repurpose” some of the older content, making it new again. With the hundreds of videos, you probably have forgotten or maybe missed some of the old stuff. So, once a month I’m here with a fun reminder.

    I have to tell you that sometimes when I go through my site looking for a throwback, I find one where I say to myself, “I seriously did that? Hmmm…”. I’m really hard on myself when I’m creating and posting a card, so it’s kind of nice to go back and see cards in a new light after some time. This is one of those cards. I don’t remember creating it at all, but I really like it:

    Festival of Trees

    There are some good technique tips in this video. See the post for details and the video. Hope you have a great day!

  2. Triple Boldness

    Inlaid Dies

    Hi All!

    I’m back to using black and white with my Crumb Cake. I was able to make 3 cards very easily without wasting any leftover die pieces. I used the Inlaid Squares Cover Plate Die, which I used on this card. It was kind of fun… like doing 3 puzzles.

    Hi All!

    I’m here with a cute little break from holiday cards with this adorable bunny from the Happy Mail set. I drew in the tree grain lines with a marker. Here is a close-up:

  4. Paste on Kraft

    Paste on Kraft

    Hi All!

    Hope you’re having a great week! Today, in the spirit of the November Kraft challenge, I am using embossing paste on Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake cardstock. I don’t think I’ve ever colored paste with Copic markers before, but I think it worked pretty well. Here is a close-up:

    I don’t use Kraft cardstock very much. I do like the white and red and black though. I may have to buy some better kraft. This is the cheap stuff from Michael’s. I wanted the bandana paper to appear as a true bandana so I used an edge die to create the triangular look.

    I used a stamp from Stately Flowers 5, by Gina K Designs, and a greeting from Season's Greetings. I wanted a bow and needed a longer chain, so I pulled out a set from Maymay Made It, called Christmas Instawreath to add those elements. I colored the berries and leaves with colored pencils. I added the shine with Versamark or a Versamarker and clear embossing powder. I enjoyed making this card.

    Thanks for this challenge. I used SSS hearts background with versa mark ink and white embossing powder. Heat embossing is a challenge for me at the best of times. I should have re-inked the versa mark pad first. I always seem to get powder where I don't want it, then I try to remove it, but it still shows up in places. I did use embossing buddy but I don't think it works for me. Any ideas? Thanks for looking!

    I used the flower from the Blended Season stamp set. It was heat embossed in a Pale Gold color from WOW. I used the blending pencil from Prismacolor to blend my 3 reds together, 3 greens, etc. The Merry die was in my stash and I had never used it before. I won this die in a Online Card Class a few years ago and can't remember who made it. I used my MISTI to stamp the flower, then to stamp the Christmas word. It needed to fit between the letters of Merry and I didn't want to change messing it up, so I used my MISTI. I made this in September. I am posting it here as it is on Kraft. I loved coloring card. I may make a few more. Thanks for looking!

    I saw an idea where the demonstrator watercolored the holly image on Kraft paper. I gave it a try using SU Watercolor Pencils. I think Prismacolor pencils work better on Kraft, but this came out okay. I embossed everything with Wow Pale Gold embossing powder. I added gold embossing around the paper for interest. I found gold ribbon in my stash and added the bow using glue dots. The stamp set used is Blended Seasons by SU. Thanks for looking.

    When I saw this month’s challenge, I said I wouldn’t enter it because I don’t like making cards on Kraft paper. But then I realized that two of them I had made qualified! I guess it goes with that time of year. My husband asked me to make a card for our belated Pastor Appreciation celebration. This was quick and easy. And while it doesn’t show well, the envelope and the sentiment are embossed in gold.
    Campfire Birthday Card

    We were invited to a birthday party with a camp theme, so I did a quick search and found a card for inspiration. I think some of Darlene’s tutorials sunk in as I had the idea to personalize it, but even more of a realization was after I had colored my marshmallows, I thought that I remembered Darlene coloring marshmallows with Copics in a video previously. I thought this added a lot to them rather than just leaving them white.

    I cheated a bit this year and used paper and embellishments from the Prima Santa Baby line.

Unfortunately the sparkle from the glitter paper isn’t showing on the photo very well.

  6. October Challenge Results!

    Hi All!

    Thank you to everyone who submitted a card to the October Halloween Challenge! There were so many fun cards! You can see all the entries here.

    This month’s random winner of the Simon Says Stamp $25 gift voucher is entry #38 by KimmieD. A great card, too!

    Here are a few highlights for the month…

    This card by Sherry is absolutely amazing – all freehand. And so creative! If you read her description, it’s a very personalized card. I want to be Sherry’s friend. 🙂

    Sherry

    Next is this card by Jan. I love her use of color. Halloween colors, including black, show through the holes:

    Jan

    I think this design is great for any occasion or holiday. Holiday colors for Christmas, pinks/reds for Valentine’s Day, pastels for Easter… you get the idea. Add an appropriate sentiment and you’re done. Jan used alcohol inks, but you could use Colorburst powders and get a nice effect.

    Sarah used her little Halloween critters very creatively on this card:

    Sarah

    Putting them in front of a streetlight and then having it look like the mummy is tied to it is awesome! I love when someone can pull different stamp sets together and make it look like they were meant to be together. Great job!

    Finally, this easel card by Chris:

    Chris

    Those veins in the head are really creepy! But, she made it adorable and less scary with the glasses. She submitted another one I liked with a black cat. Fun designs for a fun holiday.

    Thank you again to everyone who participated. I’ll be back in a few to launch the November Kraft Challenge!

    Happy Halloween!

    I’m celebrating Halloween with a Christmas card, lol. Seriously, I’m pretty sure everyone is done creating Halloween cards. Once I get started on Christmas cards, I usually get so excited that I can’t stop. So, you’ll see me creating quite a few over the next month or so. But don’t worry if you don’t make Christmas cards. There will be plenty of techniques and designs to apply to any occasion.

    For today’s card, I used Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods again. I used it previously on this card. I really love this stamp set! I used distress markers to stamp the tree and then used Sparkling Snow embossing powder for the snow. This embossing powder is one of my favorite products – it’s glitter mixed with white embossing powder. It’s gorgeous! Here is a close-up:

    Lots of Snowflakes

    Hi All,

    I’m really starting to get into the Christmas card-making mood. I love using navy and silver – it’s such an elegant combination. I die cut several snowflakes and adhered them to the background. Another option is to just use a snowflake embossing folder. Here is a close-up:

  9. November Challenge Heads Up!

    November Challenge

    Hi All!

    Rather than going with a holiday-themed challenge this month, I’m going with a color… kraft. Or, crumb cake if you prefer. I absolutely love using this color, and I especially love it in November when we in the US have Fall and Thanksgiving. I have several different brands of kraft cardstock, but I almost always go for Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake.

    There are still 6 days left in the October Halloween Challenge. Each upload gets you a chance to win a $25 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp!

    Good luck!

  10. Quirky Trees

    Quirky Trees

    Hi All,

    This is my first Christmas card of the season! I recently used this Quirky Trees stamp set as witch hats. Today I’m using it for its intended purpose – Christmas trees.

    I like to play around with different holiday color combos. I kind of like when pink is included. I also like purple, too. What I like about this card is that it’s predictable. You get the same results every time – no watercolor or ink blending guesses. So, if you’re making several cards, it’s a nice option.

    Notice that I’m really breaking out of my comfort zone with a non-A2 sized card! This one fits perfectly in a business envelope. I just felt like the A2 size wasn’t big enough for what I wanted to do.

    Here is a close-up of the card:

    Quirky Trees

    I also created the card with a different color combo – something a little more rich:

    Quirky Trees

    I think the lighter one is my favorite. Enjoy the video!
