Painted Harvest - Hello Friend







Hello Hivers, 

I made this card for a long time friend.  I was thinking of her and just wanted to say hello.  Instead of sending a text message or making a phone call...I thought a handmade card would be best.  I really love the way this card came together.  Nothing fancy, but I think it is a Wow card.

Check out he "Labels" below to see what I used to make this card.

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Watercolor Christmas Project Kit #2




Hello Hivers, 

Here are the other two designs of the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  I only made minor changes to these.  I added the Quilt Top Textured Impression Embossing Folder to the first card.  On the second card I basically just changed the card from portrait to landscape.  Sometimes a little difference can make a big difference in the design.

Watercolor Christmas Project Kit #1







Hello Hivers, 

Oh how I wish you could see these cards in person.  They are super sparkly.  

These two sets of cards were made using the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit (#144649) and stamp set (#144835 wood or clear #144838).  The kit makes 20 cards; 5 each of 4 designs.  I made a few changes to my cards.  I just wanted to step them up a bit.  I will share the other two designs tomorrow.  This is great kit for quick, last minute cards...that won't look last minute. 




As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Watercolor Christmas Shaker Shadow Boxes



MERRY CHRISTMAS



Hello Hivers, 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas.  I love this time of year.  Today I am sharing two Shaker Shadow Boxes.  The larger one was made using a sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock.  I have the template for the smaller one below.  I gave the larger of the two to my husband to put on his desk at work, the other I kept at home for decorations.  

I have used the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Watercolor Christmas stamp set for both boxes.  I filled them with some retired Stampin' Up! sequence before adding the window sheet.  


Other Supplies:

Layering Circles Framelits
Layering Squares Framelits
Stitched Shapes Framelits
Copper Foil Sheets
Champagne Foil Sheets
Copper Embossing Powder
Window Sheets
Card Front Builder Thinlits
Swirly Snowflake Thinlits
Clear Faceted Gems
Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape



 




Template for smaller Shadow Box:


The stand that I adhered to the back measures:  8.5" x 4" scored at 4.25".  I used about 3.5"  of ribbon for the stand.

Swirly Scribbles Christmas




Hello Hivers, 


I was over on Connie S. blog and she made the cutest card using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  I sort of CASE'd her card and then made a few extra.  

What do you think?  I love the rich color combinations.  Which one is your favorite?

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #8






Hello Hivers, 

I am loving these big and bold sentiments in the Memories & More card pack.  They make card making simple and quick.  

This first card uses one of my favorite color combinations...Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black.  The second card is a CASE from Pinterest.  This is a color combination that I would have had trouble thinking of, but I love it.

From The Heart - SBTD December 2017 Blog Hop





Hello Hivers, 

Welcome to the December Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop.  This month our theme is From the Heart. That includes everything and anything that celebrates Love...from Valentines Day and Weddings, to just Thinking of You.  I thought the Bundle of Love Suite would be perfect for this theme.




Today I am sharing, From the Heart, things for a new baby.  I seen the tutorial for the Ornament and Shadow Box on YouTube



FOR HER




FOR HIM



 I designed my ornaments to fit the theme for this month and created matching cards.  




IT'S A GIRL!



IT'S A BOY!



The ornament is big enough to fit a small gift inside...bibs, booties, pacifiers, etc. I didn't glue my top closed, the ribbon will keep it closed when you pull it tight.  



I have listed all the supplies used for these projects below.


Hop on over to Carly's blog...she is up next in the Blog Hop.

Merry Patterns - Pinterest Inspired




Hello Hivers, 

This card is super cute, right?!  I love it.  I seen a similar card on Pinterest.  I just love the way this turned out.  I really like the sparkle that the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape gives the project.  And do you see the cute little loops of green peeking out? Those are from the Little Love Framelits.  The colored Rhinestone Jewel popped on the deers nose is just the added something this card needed.  

Buzzz on by tomorrow for the Stampers By The Dozen monthly Blog Hop.   

Enjoy your day.

Merry Patterns CASE







Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing a card that I CASE'd from LeeAnn Greff.  I didn't change much about the card.  I loved it so much.  I used a different ribbon and embossing folder.  Those are the only differences.  The color combination is to die for.  She listed all the measurement on her blog, so I knew it was okay to replicate her work.  :)

Merry Patterns - Shaker or No?




Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing two sets of cards that are very similar, yet very different.  The first card is a shaker card.  I used the Christmas Around the World DSP along with the Merry Patterns stamp set.  I really love this card.  

For the second card, I thought I would have a try at a card sketch (#3) that Dawn G. shared on her blog.  I didn't stick exactly to the sketch, but it's close.  These cards are not shakers.  I don't know which I like more. I like them both for different reasons.

Merry Patterns and Quilted Christmas





Hello Hivers, 

Today's cards are a CASE of one I seen on Pinterest.  I switched up a few things, but it's pretty much the same.  I love all the colors together.  I have to be honest, when I first seen the Merry Patterns stamp set, I wasn't impressed.  Now that I have it, I can't stop using it.  I love it.  I'm sad that it's no longer available.  

So...What do you think of my cards?  Do you like them or do you love them?  :)

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Christmas Pines & Merry Music DSP







Hello Hivers,

I've been playing around with this split card design. I am really loving it.  These two sets of cards are made the same with two minor differences...one is made with Whisper White cardstock with a Metallic Foil Doily and the other is Crumb Cake with a Foil Snowflake.  They both have the Merry Music DSP and the Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon that has been colored to match the Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #6




Hello Hivers, 

Here's a fun card made using two of our InColors; Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  

The acetate and under layer both came from the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.  I added some paper from the Eastern Palace SDSP, a silver Foil Snowflake, and some Berry Burst ribbon to finish off this card.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #5







Hello Hivers, 

I know the Merry Patterns Host stamp set is no longer available...but it is so cute.  I will be using it until after Christmas or a bit longer :)  The candles in this set are great for birthday cards.  

I stamped the deer in Whisper White Craft ink and the outline is in Early Espresso.  I love the shine that the Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon gives this card.  

My second card uses elements from the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  After I made the card, I had a little chuckle.  The deer look like they are lined up to run a race.  LoL  That was not my intention but I love the way the card turned out.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #4



Hello Hivers, 

Today I am sharing a project that I CASE'd from the Holiday Catalog (pg. 14).  In the catalog it was part of a scrapbook page.  I turned the design into a card.  The Annual and Holiday Catalogs are great resources for inspiration.   Be sure to look at all the samples provided while making your wish list of our great products.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack #3





Hello Hivers, 

OMG!  I just love this image from the Seasonal Chums stamp set.  This little reindeer is super cute.  I told you...cuteness overload, right?!  When I seen this card in the Memories & More card pack, I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I wish the Wink of Stella would show up better on the photos.  They are so stunning in person.

Hello Hivers, 

This week is going to be all about the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack.  This card pack is meant to be used for scrapbooking.  I am not a scrapbooker (I tried).  I decided to use the pack to make Christmas cards.  You can see that just by changing the DSP and background colors, you can get very different looks.  


Some of the products used:

Christmas Around the World DSP
Merry Music Specialty DSP
Glitter Enamel Dots
Layering Circles Framelits
Silver Glimmer Paper

Merry Music Boxed Set of Cards







Hello Hivers, 


I went all in this year.  I have been creating cards like crazy.  I've seen so many wonderful cards on Pinterest...You know I had to make them for myself.  Today's projects are no exception.

As always, I have made a few changes to my cards to make them my own.  

I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Foil Snowflakes, and the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon on both boxed sets.  

The Wisteria Wonder cards were created with the Christmas Pines stamp set and some retired SAB ribbon.  The Pink Pirouette cards used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, also with retired ribbon. 

To change the color of the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, I spritzed it with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and re-inker.  It only took about 5 minutes to dry and none of the color rubbed off.   

I used the Acetate Card Boxes #144628 to box up all the cards and envelopes.  Only four cards could fit in the box because of all the dimension.  


As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.
