Shabby Chic #23

Hi Everyone! Christmas is approaching fast! I want to show you a shabby chic shaker card that I made. I have been making more shaker cards lately and love them. They are so much fun!

I made the card shape using the Precious Marieke flowers frame background and sponged brown ink around the edges. The white flower frame goes with it. I then cut a pink frame using a frame die from Nellie Sellen. Lastly, I cut a white circle using the Gina Marie stitched circle die. The snowman stamp is from Inkadinkado. The image was colored using alcohol inks. The saying is from Just For Fun Stamps. Flowers, ribbon and pearls were used for accents. I used plastic snowflakes and clear sugar beads inside the shaker.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you are enjoying the Christmas season. Have a wonderful day!

Tis The Season

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a fun card I made using this cute snowman from Just For Fun Stamps. Doesn't he look jolly?

I made the background by cutting a strip of fun foam, adhering it to an acrylic block and stamping it in various angles using oxide inks. I used a dotted swiss embossing folder at the top and bottom of the card to add interest. I colored the snowman using alcohol markers, fussy cut him and added him to the card. The saying is from a Die Versions die. I also added 3 sticker snowflakes and hot pink rhinestones.

This month the challenge is to make any holiday card. I hope you will join us and you might win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a jolly day!

Warming Up!

Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope that you are enjoying the Christmas season. It has been unusually cold here in the South for this time of year. I made a card with this cute little mousie warming IN a cup of cocoa! LOL! I have been enjoying my cups of cocoa lately.

I used the Gina Marie dotted die for the background and cut it using metallic blue card stock. I stamped the image, colored it with alcohol markers and fussy cut it. I used the stem of a flower die for the "steam" in the cup. The white bottom portion of the card was run through a snowflake die. The greenery is a Gina Marie die cut from green card stock. I splattered white acrylic paint over the greenery and cup for snow. I made "marshmallows" using 4 pop dots and adding white sparkle flocking to them. You can see one marshmallow in the cup and 3 on the greenery.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and warm day!

Just For Fun December Challenge

Hi Everyone! I can't believe this is the first day of December and that Christmas is right around the corner! I want to show you a Christmas card I made using Just For Fun stamps. On this card I used the Leaping Dear and Merry Christmas stamps.

I started with a background that I made using a gelli plate and a stencil. I stamped the deer onto the background and colored it using a bronze metallic colored pencil. I also stamped Merry Christmas under the deer and added thin red and gold metallic washi tapes across the card. Enamel dots were used for Rudolph's nose and for embellishment.

The challenge this month is to make a card for any holiday. I hope you will join in. I would love to see your creations and you might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful Christmas season!

Shabby Chic #22

Hi and welcome to my blog! Even though the Christmas season is fast approaching I am showing one more Fall card. I made this shabby chic card using Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps and made a Fall wreath. I cut the wreath out using the Gina Marie Stitched Circle die, sponged the edges with brown ink and filled in the "stitching" using a brown marker.

I colored the bird, by Dina Wakely, using alcohol markers. I stamped a script stamp on the gold card stock background, ran kraft card stock through a weave embossing folder and swiped a dark brown ink pad over the raised areas. Silk leaves and a bow were added for embellishment. The edges of the background and "Hello" were also sponged with brown ink.

I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Is Near!

Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving! I want to show you a card I made with a brand new Christmas tree stamp from Just For Fun Stamps called Skinny Tree.

I stamped the tree six times on different patterned papers, leaving the trunk on the middle one. I fussy cut them and adhered them to the card. The "snow" at the bottom of the card was made by using a swirl punch. I added silver star stickers on the top of each tree. 

There is still time to join in this month's challenge, using red, orange and brown colors. We hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A Fall Day

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am glad you stopped by today! I want to show you a Fall card I made using the Penny Black Snowy Park stamp. I made this stamp look like a Fall day instead of a snowy day!

I used two backgrounds that I made where I had put alcohol inks on one piece of glossy card stock and then placed the glossy side of another piece on top and pulled them apart. It made sort of an ink blot print. I stamped the trees on one of the backgrounds, cut it out and adhered it to black card stock. I then adhered the image to the other background. All of that was layered on another piece of black card stock and then adhered to the gold card base. I added a wooden leaf, cord and sequins for embellishment.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
