Winter Wonderland - #1 - #4

Another Stampin' Up! set completed, and four more Christmas cards done. That makes 32 so far:)

This set is called "Winter Wonderland." It consists of these four image stamps, plus two very small ones that I didn't use. I used silver embossing powder for all of the images and the sentiment, which is from Papertrey Ink. I matted with shimmery silver paper.

Thoroughly Thankful


After my long streak of daily blog posts, I've had a dry spell in my stamping room. I finally got back in there yesterday. I had a friend over, and it was such a nice time. Lots of stuff going on in our lives, but I think we're done with craziness for a while:)

I grabbed another stack of Stampin' Up! stamps to continue on my "using them all" project. Seems like I already used this set, but I'm not sure. I do know, however, that I have used most of the stamps in this set, so I'm going to use the ones I'm not sure of. The set is called "Thoroughly Thankful." I simply stamped the stamp, colored with Copics, matted and mounted on foam squares. I stamped the sentiment on the inside. I also added some sparkle to the images with my Wink of Stella pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Left-Over Squares Cards

You knew these were coming, didn't you? :) I have used the squares left-over from these cards to make today's cards. They are all very much the same, so not much description. The die I used to cut these squares is from Papertrey Ink. The stamp is from a really old dollar stamp set. The stickers are all from the same set.
These are Martha Stewart flowers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is embossed in white.
More stickers and a Papertrey stamps.
These stickers are all from the same set, too.

Pocket Fun - #1 - #3

Well, I have now used (almost) all of the stamps from the Stampin' Up! set called "Pocket Fun." The stamp I didn't use says, "a little something just for you."

For this first card, I used the pocket stamp and the frog stamp from the set. I also used an SU! background stamp called "Just Jeans." I cut the pocket and the frog out, and I mounted the frog's belly on a foam square and added googlie eyes. The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set. I covered the entire card front with blue gingham paper.
I made the pocket on this one just the same as the first card. The flowers and leaves are from the set, as is the sentiment. I popped the flowers up on foam squares. The sentiment was cut with a stitched rectangle die. The background was embossed with a Darice Wire Fence embossing folder.
Again, the pocket is the same, but this time I stamped the sentiment on it. The girls stamp is also from the set. I used a stitched circle die to cut the top of the panel. I used the same blue gingham paper and added some orange rick-rack.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Quick & Cute #1 - #4

I actually used another Stampin' Up! set. I am on a quest to use all of my sets. I was SO good to begin with and used all the stamps from all of the sets. As I've gone along, though, I started skipping some stamps, and, at this point, I'm even skipping whole sets! Oh well. At least I'll get to the end of my sets sooner this way. :)

The set I used for all of today's cards is called "Quick & Cute." It consists of the four images and four sentiments. All four cards are pretty much the same. I used a Papertrey Ink die to cut the openings. (This left me with even more card parts, though!) I colored all of the images with miscellaneous markers. I added sparkly to several spots on the cards.
For this one, I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the bottom border.
I embossed the border on the bottom with a Cuttlebug border folder, and also added lines with my Scor-Pal. The sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set.
I mounted the colored panel on this one with foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

White and Gold Sticker Christmas

After making these cards, I was left with more card parts! I just couldn't throw out the squares that were left over:) So, I made these simple cards. The stickers were left on a sheet of Elizabeth Craft mostly Christmas tree stickers. The sentiment on both cards is from My Favorite Things. The squares are mounted on foam squares, and the sentiments were done with gold embossing powder. Another sticker sheet done!
