Christmas in White

Here is another Christmas card idea.  This is a CASE from an event I participated in last Fall.  It is done with Whisper White card stock, a  piece of Silver Glitter and a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding.  I used a bit of Crystal Effects on black card stock for the door knob.  Popped it up using dimensionals.  This is a very WOW card and easy as pie to make. 
Hope you enjoy!

I used the Merry Christmas for Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370 Wood $36.95 and 127802 Clear $26.95 Set of 24).  Measurement are Base Whisper white 4.25 x 11 folded (open at top) to 4.25 x 5/5,
Layer 1 is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, Layer 2 which makes up the door is 3 3/4 x 4 7/8 ( I cut it into sections of 1 7/8 x 21/4 for top and 17/8 x 2 5/8 for bottom).  Stamp you sentiment on the lower left piece and add the knob to the right side as shown.  I used a 1/4 round punch for the knob.  To make the wreath I punched my square (2 x 2) with 1 3/4 scallop then the 1" round to punch out the center.  I used Miss Lee's Fabulous Bow Maker for my bow and used a glue dot to adhere it to the wreath.  Easy Peasy 
Until next time.....when I will be doing some Halloween ideas.......take a minute out of your busy day to do one thing that makes you happy.

Scentsational Season Bundle

It's never to early to think about a design for your "handmade" Christmas cards.  I have been playing with a couple ideas.  So today, I wanted to share a card I did with the Scentsational Season stamp set and Holiday Collection Framelits Dies from the Holiday Mini catalog (129946 clear bundle $32.95).  It's done in Whisper White and Riding Hood Red with the tree being stamped in Gumball Green and topped with a Glitter Red Star. 

First I ran the white layer thru my Big Shot cutting out the tree with a Framelits, then I embossed the piece with a textured impressions folder ( I used Snow Burst) and the I stamped the tree on a scrap of Whisper White with Gumball Green classic pad.  I punched out the tree and a small star using the framelits. I used Snail Adhesive to attached the Riding Hood Red layer to the base, then Dimensionals to attached the White embossed piece to the card, be careful around the tree cutout, I put the dimensionals around the opening so it would not colaspe.  I gently set the tree into the cutout and added the star to the top using adhesive.  Using a strip of white I stamped the sentiment and added a bit of red to make it pop.  It's is a fast and easy card that has a bit of WOW.....I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it.

Don't forget the Back to Spool special  place a $40 order and get a spool of our new 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon FREE!  It's an $8.95 value.  Until next time.

Creative Elements

Hi everyone....I wanted to share a card I did for a special couple's second wedding anniversary.  I used one of Shelli's Signature Collection set called Creative Elements.  I saw a version of this card on Split Coast stampers and knew it had to be made for a special occasion.  I did the base in Whisper white and added a mat in Midnight Muse then added another white layer.  I stamped the flowers in Raseberry Ripple, Midnight Muse Daffodil  Delight and Licky Limeade on a scrap of White and then cut them out (wished we had a punch for this one) ha ha.  I used mono adhesive and dimensonals to attach the flowers to the card base.  Stamped Happy Anniversary in Midnight Muse.  Easy Peasy and what a WOW, I just had to share it.  I hope you enjoy.

Stamp sets: Creative Elements, 122647 Clear set of 8 $24.95 and Something to Celebrate for the words (sorry this one is retired, but the only Happy Anniversary I had)
Whisper White and Midnight Muse Card Stock

Welcome Baby

Happy Labor Day Everyone...
Today I have a gift enclosure card that I made for a friend who is having a baby girl next month.  This done with the set Baby Prints (120576 clear 21.95 and 125470 wood 27.95 set of 7).  I used Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette paper and Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette ink.   I ran the vanilla and pink layers though the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot folder and matted the top layer with pink.  I looped a piece of  3/8' Taffeta Ribbon behind the first layer.  Popped the layer up with Dimensionals.  I used a retired set of words (shhhhh don't tell anyone) for the Welcome Baby added some sparkle with our Basic Rhinestones.  The card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  This was a very quick and easy card and I think it turned out beautiful.  What do you think?    I hope you enjoy this card and have a great week.  Remember to do one thing today that makes you happy.  Until next time......keep Stampin!
