Up To Snow Good! Last Snowmen for this Winter…

Hi everyone!  I say this every month don’t I?  How’d it get to be _________!  In this case, March!  I still have Winter new stuff to stamp and play with! haha  Add it to the stuff from other years, right?!  Anyway, this is to cute not to post quick!

This card and the tag coming up are from the Snow Buds set by Essentials By Ellen.

Pattern Paper is from Lawn Fawn.

Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles are a staple for me!  You can find them at Starlitstudio.net, HERE. (it looks like they’re out of stock, the link to contact Cindy is at the very top of the page, if you want to order them)

Doodlebug Twine, another staple… HERE.

I just love snow and snowmen and cute snowman sentiments!  AND in this case paper snowballs! ha

Then I cut so many, I made a tag quick too…still have a bunch for another go ’round.  ❤

I’ll just call him pail head!  I guess all the hats are being used. haha I had to add hearts for buttons.

The love tag is from poppystamps.

It’s almost that time of year to say good-bye Winter.  These guys are gonna melt! lol  Thanks for stopping by and hope we made you smile!

poppystamps cards…Whittle Snowman and Another Ribbon Heart Frame…

Hi everyone! I guess I wasn’t finished playing with the new poppystamps Ribbon Heart Sidekick Frame die! lol  Here’s another one and I added the poppystamps Birch Stitched Frame from the last release of 2018.

The tree needed hearts!  YES!

Give this to your favorite lumberjack! haha

I used various heart dies for the layers.  The new Love Jotted Script die works out fun here and a sentiment stamped from the Best Life Typewriter Sentiment stamp set.

The red is redder in real life.  I forgot to notice when I was editing the pictures. Not sure what I would’ve done different anyway! lol

Linking my Valentine ‘love’ card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Have a Heart

My next card isn’t a Valentine but it could be! I added a heart for good measure.

This picture captures the color the best and shows the touch of dimension I added by mounting the new poppystamps Whittle Snowman with foam tape.  I layered 3 of the Whittle Wood Frames together and layered a white cut and a green cut of the poppystamps Tree Line Hill die. I colored his cap with Copics!

A sweet thank you, from the Best Life Typewriter Sentiments set, stamped in Coffee Archival ink from Ranger.  The frame and card base are ink blended with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I think the Studio Rectangle Layers and Shaker Rectangle Frames dies are discontinued but just for a heads up, that’s what I used for the layers.

It just dawned on me that this snowman thank you would be a good Valentine for our mail carrier!  She’s grrrrreat!  (and it’s 3˚ here today! eek!)

I have some other cards started so I’ll leave you with this for now and be back to share again later! ❤

Happy papercrafting to you!

Two Cards…a Birthday and a Snowman!

Hi cardmakers and friends!  It was Tim’s birthday the other day… I made him a card!  He was surprised! lol

This cute little raccoon is old, from Stampendous, the sentiment too.  I searched and didn’t find it anywhere but I thought it was fun enough to share and bring some smiles!

Colored with Copics on Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock.

 

Then our swap at club Friday was a snowman theme.  I made this…

It’s from a clear stamp set by Impressions Obsession.  I stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on kraft and colored it with white and blue color pencil.  A Memory Box Postage frame die and a little red heart to jazz it up. Add a heart any time you can. lol

A jolly happy soul!  May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart and home!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!  Happy January!  LET IT SNOW! haha  I know, you’re all groaning. lol  Lots of pictures to show you with this one.

I used Karen Burniston’s neat Tag Book Die set to make this card… Karen is a great gal!  So talented!  I was fortunate to meet her a few years ago when I taught at the Great Yosemite Stamp Escape.  If you ever have a chance to take her classes…you’ll love it!  Her ‘how to’ video for this set is HERE.  It’s amazing and so easy to follow! 

Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers Ink blended background with some water spots and I’ll just link up what I used at the bottom of the post so not a lot of text today!

Altenew Poinsettia and Pine…Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Friends and Cardmakers!  All the Best to you!

Here’s a big picture of the tags I made for the gift bags we used for stockings for the grandkids this year.  I’m going to keep the bags and reuse them every year!  Now you know what I’ve been up to!  We have a wonderful family celebration here yesterday…today I’m taking it easy!  😀

Take care!  Be back soon!

Memory Box Poinsettia Circle Frame and Nativity Circle…

It was a Holy Night…this card…was a challenge but nothing compared to what Mary and Joseph faced! A beautiful reminder of what Christmas is all about!

I painted the die cuts with Gansai Tambi watercolors and metallics. Layered them together and placed them on a red glitter die cut circle.  A little gold stickles for the centers.

The sentiment is from the Bold Holiday Greetings stamp set, stamped in Ranger Archival Black ink with the MISTI.

I hope you’ve had a beautiful season of creating Christmas cards…hard to believe we’re closing in on the month of December already!  I could make Christmas cards all year!

Thank you for supporting me and my blog and God bless you all!  P.S.  Shopping links in my right sidebar…

poppystamps Seed Snowflake Joy Card…

It’s a candy cane JOY today! Using poppystamps Seed Snowflake Joy die, Tidings of Joy stamp set, twine and white and red cardstock!

I placed a strip of red on the white card base, then mounted the die cut white panel with foam tape to the red strip.

For the candy cane stripe, I cut strips of red and white cardstock with my paper trimmer, covered a piece of copy paper with tape and placed the strips alternating colors over the tape diagonally. Then I die cut the J and Y from that piece.  I used glue and stuck them down flat inside the negative cut in the Seed Snowflake Joy panel.

I stamped the sentiment with the MISTI….oh, I did that before I mounted up the panel though…

I really like how this turned out…another CAS card and so Christmasy looking!
