Jane’s Doodles Driving Home For Christmas Card…

Ho Ho Ho!  I hope this makes you smile!  This card just makes me happy! Look at that smile on that pooch!  He knows he’s pulling a lot of happy there!

I colored the images with Copic Sketch markers… cut them out with the Scan and Cut 350…put it on a road die in front of a forest die.

A little ink blending in the background and a few white dots with a gel pen for snow and decorations on the packages.

It’s snowing here, so pretty! Hope you’re enjoying this most wonderful time of the year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas to all and an Avery Elle Wreath Christmas Card…

Merry Christmas everyone! I have some Christmas cards to share still!  We always have our family Christmas on Christmas Eve day so today is a clean up/crash kind of day!  I remembered I still have some cards to post.  If you’re like me, you never get tired of looking at cards, no matter the season! lol

The four cards today are from an Avery Elle stamp and die set.  I’ll link up the products below.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using the MISTI stamping tool.  Colored with Copic Sketch markers.  I just love coloring in reds and greens!  I think I used R43 and 46 and YG63 and 67 for these.

Changed up the background on this one…

I love using the negative strips after die cutting this background…link below.  I did this on the first/top card too.

I love how these all came out and mailable too! yay!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season and getting handmade cards in the mail too! I love getting mail! hehe

Thanks for stopping by today! All the best to you and yours!

Deer Head cards…

Our anniversary is in December and so I made Tim a Winterish feeling card this year using a die set from Recollections.  The sentiment stamp is from Memory Box.  HERE is the pattern paper I used.

I really had fun with this for some reason… I suppose it was because for once I was able to incorporate pattern paper without stressing about it! hoho

So I made 6 for Tim to use for Christmas cards that he sends using a plaid from Photoplay Paper. Cindy has sets with plaids that I want to use next… this one HERE, this one HERE and another one HERE. We could even take this into Valentines HERE! lol

I tried using LED lights to take the last two pictures… I really like how bright they are for working… my husband doesn’t mess around…these are 300 watts! lol  He brought how 500 watts too but I said, no, you keep those for work.  Yes, these are light bulbs!  whoa!  lol

Entering some challenges…

Anyway, I better bet back to cleaning, wrapping and making tags today.  I have some more to share…so I’ll be back to bug you!  😀

poppystamps Bridge card and Memory Box tag…

Here we are at countdown week and I’m just ‘elfing” away here! Lots of fun to create still!  eek! I wanted to share a couple things today though and hopefully be back with more!

I love making these Bridge cards with the poppystamps or Memory Box frames on the front.

For this one, I used poppystamps Pine Needle Clearing die cut from Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock and inked with Peeled Paint Distress ink and an ink blending tool.

I die cut the Memory Box Small Winter Sled from the same white cardstock and colored it with Copics (E40’s, E07) and a silver gel pen. I die cut poppystamps Poinsettia Mini from the same white cardstock and colored the largest with Copic YG67 and the smaller two with Copic R46.

The fence is from the Memory Box Open Studio Fanciful Fences die set. Again die cut in the same white and I just left it white.

The house is poppystamps new Classic Cottage die, cut from the same white and colored with Copics too, E07, E47, E81, E83, T3 and T5.

Two snow hills cut with the Memory Box Stitched Curves die set. Same white cardstock.

In the very back you’ll see the new poppystamps Tree Trunks die.  I cut it in white also and colored it with Copics E44 and 47.

Then there is this super cute new Surprise Deer die, new from poppystamps too.  I die cut it from kraft cardstock and inked the edges with Distress ink Gathered Twigs and an ink blending too.  I added a few white spot with a white gel pen.

here’s a photo of the layers..sorry, I forgot to change the F-stop to make it all in focus but I think you can still see….

The tree trunks cut is mounted directly to the cardbase with strips of  thin mounting tape. The fence and cottage are mounted to a snow hill. The deer (legs) are glued directly to a snow hill. The pine needles cut is glued directly to the card base and the fence is mounted to the top with thin mounting tape foam.

This is an A2 size card and folds flat to mail… I make sure it fits through the ¼ inch slot the PO requires for one postage stamp.

I mail my A2 cards in an A6 size envelope though.  I just feel like it protects them better… postage is the same.

One more photo!  A tag I made with the new Memory Box Build a Snowman die.

I played around with this last week and now I can’t remember what ink I used for the background.  I’m sure it was Distress but not sure if it’s oxide or regular.  Pattern paper for the hat and scarf.  Nuvo drops for his ‘coal’ eyes, nose and buttons.  I had a terrible time with the eyes, whew, good thing they can be coal cuz this was the third time! lol

Fresh Snowfall Nuvo on the snowflake from the new poppystamps Shiny Snowflakes dies.

The tag is an Avery Elle set.. I don’t usually mix other companies with ps or MB but one of the granddaughters had extra cut and it was just laying there and I didn’t even think! 😀

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my card/tag and are enjoying all the ‘making’ of the season!  I am!

Concord & 9th Ornamental Card and Stamplorations A Child is Born Card…

Hi cardmakers! I’m making more cards then I’m getting blogged so I need to step up my act!

This card is using Concord & 9th’s Ornamental die set… I love the detail in the cuts and that the pieces can be used individually!   First I had to use it all in one! lol (Pattern paper is My Minds Eye, Comfort and Joy, Evergreen and Holly, from last yer)

Very straight forward card and flat for mailing. If you don’t want to mail for square card postage (2 oz. stamp) use one of those gold 6×9 envelopes for one forever postage stamp!

For a few years when I colored all the time, all my cards were square… I got creative with mailing. hehe

Another, yes I can mail this CAS card.  Stamping and die cutting all in one card! lol

I stamped with a Hero Arts Ombre stamp pad in the MISTI so I could ink it a couple times.

Then I die cut the stamped panel with a nativity die and used thin ¾ in. mounting tape that I cut pieces to fit behind the die cut.

I love this look…hoping to find some more stamps and dies to try it with.

Thanks for stopping by today! Click over to Instagram if you want to see one of our new trains! hehe  Link over in the sidebar too.  Grandson Henry emailed me last night and said, make a video and send it to my mom so she can see how fast it goes! So  shared it on IG too. We’ve had trains before but they wear out! Two out of three worn out so we replaced two this year. Kind of memory trains…my Dad worked for the Chicago Northwestern RR, so both of these new ones are CNW trains.  I was so excited to find them and share a little about my Dad with our grands. 😀

Memory Box Enchanted Snowglobe Card…

Hi everyone!  What a fun die set!  This is the new Deep Edge Enchanted Snowglobe die set from Memory Box. You can easily cut fabric and other materials with these deep edge dies!  Cool…I used to sew all the time but now I’m thankful for all these stitched dies so I can just have the ‘faux’ stitching! lol  So, I didn’t go get any fabric out to make this! But..you sure could!  or felt would be so cool too!

I had a watercolor background that didn’t get tossed (regular Distress Ink, Salty Ocean). I added some embossing powder white snowflakes with a Versamark pen and Ranger Detail embossing powder. Yes the dots are too big for the perspective of the house and trees but we’ll just use the artistic license this time. hehe

I love how the ‘s’ on the sentiment die makes the smoke coming from the chimney too!

The Copic Sketch Markers I used on the darker tall trees are G43 and 46, the short, wide trees are YG41 and 45. The door is R46, the window is Y18 and the roof is N3, 4, 5.

The other dies I used are in the shopping links below…

Simon Says Stamp Diecember Picture Book Secret Penguin Card…

Good Morning! It’s hard to believe we’ve hit Diecember already! It’s here with all the glory of the season! I am delighted to share a card I made with Simon Says Stamp’s new Picture Book Secret Penguin. He’s giving Santa some competition with his cuteness!

I used SSS Stitched Slopes and Hills to give him some snow to stand in. The sentiments are from SSS Sending and Wishing stamp set.

I couldn’t resist using these cute Doodlebug Candy Cane Shape Sprinkles with him, Doodlebug Heart Assortment Sprinkles, oh and that Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat sticker.

The background is Distress Oxide inks, Salty Ocean and a little bit of Faded Jeans around the perimeter. Spattered it with water…sprayed a puddle into my hand, rub my hands together and then clap them over the piece to get the different size splotches. I did it a few times on this one.

Then I spattered it with Distress Picket Fence Acrylic Paint, diluted with a little water and a small liner paint brush.

Click over to see all the new products from SSS for Diecember! Several things I love!  eek!  😀

Happy creating, shopping, holiday prep to you!  Thanks for stopping by!  Links below to what I used!
