Thank You

 
Hello Peeps!!!
 
Happy Shiny New Year! 
I am thinking positive and am 
sure we are going to have a better year in 2021 than 2020!
It may be awhile, but we will get there!

I have been busy the last few days in my craft room, doing some design work and also trying to get ahead on projects to post here for you!

Today's project is another card made using the fab True Love DSP.
I colored and fussy cut out these flowers from the paper.
I am adding another pack to my next order, because I LOVE coloring these florals and you all know I love flower cards!

I colored these using Blends, I use Peal Pink Combo pack, light Calypso Coral Blend and Old Olive Combo pack.

 
I used the Curvy Dies and more of the True Love DSP for my Background.

The Curvy Pieces are die cut with Whisper White and then added over the striped DSP.
I then mounted this to a layer of Basic Black and then mounted to my Thick Whisper White base.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped with Black Memento ink.

The floral piece is added to the center with several dimensionals.

 
I used my Wink of Stella all over the floral image.

My newest love is these Black Matte Dots. They are amazing, you will see more of them!

You Are Lovely

 
Hello Peeps!!
 
I am back from Christmas break.
We had a fun and relaxing time with family.
As much as I love the holidays I am always glad to get back to the normal day to day.
 
Today I have a fun sneak peek to share with you.
The Hydrangea Haven stamp set was an immediate favorite when first seeing the upcoming mini.
I ordered it early, before the dies was available, I have since order the dies along with way to many other items and they are on their way soon!
 
I used the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches:
 
 
I flipped the sketch to accommodate my Hydrangea image.

I stamped the image with Black Stazon and colored with my Blends.
I used Seaside Spray, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape for the flower head and Old Olive for the leaves and stem.

 
I embossed my image using the Tasteful Textiles EF and then added the image to a die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies.
 
The DSP is from the Hydrangea Hill DSP pack.
 
The base of the card is Highland Heather and then a layer of White behind the DSP.
 
The sentiment comes from the Art Gallery stamp set and is embossed in white on a piece of Basic Black.
 
 
I added a pretty bow using the new Gorgeous Grape Sheer ribbon and finished with a few Basic Rhinestones.

Silver Christmas Wishes

 
Happy Thursday Peeps!!!
 
Today's card share is made using the challenge this week at
 
 
This week is a pretty color challenge, perfect for a last minute Christmas card:
 
 
I say last minute, but who am I kidding, I will be making and posting Christmas cards up until Christmas.
I love making Christmas cards and I still have so many I want to make...sigh!
 
 
This card uses the In the Pines and Wishes and Wonder Bundles.
That deer is my favorite! Doesn't he look so noble?
 
The base of my card is Basic Black and I followed that with a layer of Silver Foil paper and then another layer of Basic Black. I embossed this layer of black with one of the Wrapped In Texture EF.
 
I die cut the "snowy banks" using two of the dies from the In the Pines dies along with 5 trees from the same dies using Whisper White card stock. 

I die cut the deer using Silver and the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set.

 
 I used some Icicle Stickles, (non SU) on my snow and trees.

Christmas Cheer

 
Happy Wednesday Peeps!!
 
Are you done with your Christmas crafting?
I still have loads of things to show you and more sets I haven't even touched and time is running out. I guess I won't get to them all, but that is OK.
Time does tend to get away from me this time of the year. 
I hope you enjoy seeing this cards even if you are not making Christmas cards still.

This one is made using Tag Buffet stamp set.
 
I love this set along with the Tag Buffet kit, which is on sale right now, I picked up another one while it is half price because ....why not?
 
I made these stockings using the paper piecing technique.
I stamped the stockings onto white card stock with Black Memento ink and then again onto 
two colors of DSP from the Tis the Season 6 x 6 pack.
I fussy cut out the pieces from the DSP and added them to the white stamped stocking to create the cute little stockings on my card.

 
The base of my card is Real Red with a layer of DSP from the Tis the Season pack, in fact all the DSP here is from that same pack.
 
I also used Gold Foil to mat the min image and the green DSP layer too.
 
The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set and the gold twine here came from the Tag Buffet Kit.

Birthday Florals

 
Happy Tuesday Peeps!!
 
I am so excited to share this card with you!
 
This is a sneak peek of some items from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.
 
These flowers are from the True Love DSP.
You all know my love affair with all kind of flowers in my stamping.
The DSP pack is loaded with black and white pretty papers.
I colored these flowers with my Blends and fussy cut them out to use here.
Yes, the flowers are just open stamped looking images that are perfect for coloring and would even
be spectacular without color. 

I used the sketch from Fab Friday Challenge
for my card:
 

 I got some of my pre-order last week and was going to wait to
show samples until later, but I was so loving this DSP, that I decided to interupt
my Christmas cards with this fun "spring" type birthday card.
 
 
I colored using my Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron Blends along with Old Olive for the leaves.
You notice that pretty die cut the sentiment is on? It is also another set from the new Mini, called Art Gallery, along with the matching dies!

Vintage Santa


 Happy Thursday Peeps!!


Today I am sharing another CASED card, this one 

by Gail Ellis from Blue Rose Paper Treasures.

She did a few cards with Vintage Illustrations on them and I absolutely adore them.

Mine uses the same Vintage Illustrations as hers, (you can find these for free by doing a google search)

and I followed her color cues and basic sketch. 

Most of my card is exactly like hers besides a few minor changes of substitute for items I had.

 

I started with a base of Thick Whisper White and followed with a layer of Crumb Cake that I embossed with the Dainty Diamond EF.

 

 
This card uses a lot of die cuts, but is basically fairly simple to recreate.

I made a couple more of these cards with Vintage Santas, I will show them tomorrow.
