Paisley and Posies

Today started out snowy and now the sun is shining and there's not a bit of snow left on the ground. When I woke up and looked out the window (while still snuggled up under the covers!), the snow was falling and all the trees were coated with the beautiful white snow.  It was so peaceful to lie there and watch the snowflakes fall.  When I got up, I took a few pictures.  Good thing because by 1:00 pm, it was all just a memory!!  It's pretty cold though (highs in the 40s).  For the past couple of weeks we have been having spring like weather and the flowers and trees are blooming.  Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 43 and rainy with warmer temps coming back by Friday.  Sonny is having surgery on Tuesday so I am glad the weather will be a little better for me to take him to the hospital.

I found a couple more cards that Ashley made when she was here at Thanksgiving.  She used the Paisley and Posies thinlits and stamps to make these cute birds sitting on the Swirly Scribbles thinlet.  I love it!


This next card also uses the Paisley theme.  The DSP is retired but you can still order the stamp set and thinlits to make these cards.





And a few hours later:

You're Sublime

When Ashley was here in November, she had fun playing with my stamps.  She is such a good little artist and doesn't have to CASE like I do!  Here are a few of the cards she made using You're Sublime.

This card is done in Elegant Eggplant and Daffodil Delight.  She stamped the Paisley and Posies (still available) stamp on the background.  The Daffodil piece was cut out using the Sunburst Thinlit.  She stamped the camper onto white cardstock and stamped the polka dots all over it with Perpetual Birthday Calendar.


This card uses the cute little crab from You're Sublime.  The embossing folder is a retired one but you could easily substitute the new Seaside folder.


I'm sure you will see the Beatle connection in this next card!  She is a HUGE Beatles fan and just doesn't understand why I didn't go see the Beatles in concert when I was a teenager.  The closest they came to Charlotte back then was Atlanta.  We didn't just get in the car and drive that far back then nor was concert going a regular thing for a teenager!  She hand wrote "We all live in a ...."

October Stamp Club Cards

For this month's Stamp Club card, I concentrated on fall and the holidays. 

If you would like to order any of the items to make these cards, please order online using my October code: 6G7GE4YW   Your order will be mailed directly to you.  You can also check out the Clearance items and include them with your order.

I used the following stamps for this card: Cookie Cutter Halloween; Goulish Grunge; Happy Scenes; Timeless Textures
l  Stamp the Brick Wall (from Ghoulish Grunge) on the white card with Smoky Slate ink.  Use the little splatter stamp (Timeless Textures) and stamp with Pumpkin Pie ink. 
l  Stamp Spider Web in corner with black ink.  
  Next the trick was to find a spider!  Finally found one on a retired set from last year, Happy Scenes.  Probably just as easy to use a marker and draw him in! 
The 3 black squares are 1 3/4" each. The Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizazz & Wisteria Wonder square were die cut with the Squares Thinlits.
l  Next stamp creatures onto white paper & punch out w/Cookie Cutter Punch; color and adhere to the black squares.  Stamp the sentiment (again, I used a retired set called And Many More.


 The Ugly Christmas Sweater card was a big hit!  I had others to choose from but everyone picked the Christmas one.   If you Google Cable Knit Sweater Card, you will find a bunch of different sweaters with instructions.  It's really pretty simple.  Run your card stock through the Big Shot using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  This is a really thick folder and I found it helpful to mist the card stock with a little water before embossing.  For the white shirt underneath, this is the white card base.  I used the Circle Thinlits (or a 2" Circle Punch) to punch a circle.  The ribbing is made using a Crimper but if you do not have one of those, you can use your Score Board and score on every line.  This is a fun card to play with and come up with lots of different ideas as I did below.



 The next card uses the beautiful Petals and Paisleys!  I love the DSP, the stamp set and the framelits!  Here are my directions:


Emboss the Rich Razzleberry card stock with the Petal Burst embossing folder.
Adhere DSP to top of Razzleberry card stock.
Tie knot in Mint Macaron ribbon and adhere around Razzleberry card.
Adhere Razzleberry card to Night of Navy card.
Stamp sentiment onto Vanilla card stock and cut out.  Matte onto Night of Navy and adhere to Razzleberry card stock.
Stamp scallop circles in different colored inks; die cut with Paisley thinlits; adhere them together with dimensionals.  Adhere Candy Dot to center.
Die cut large Paisley from Copper paper and the floral pieces from Mint Macaron and Night of Navy; arrange all onto card.



 Next is the cute little scarecrow from Cookie Cutter Halloween.


Use a sponge or dauber & sponge So Saffron on bottom of white card
Sponge Soft Sky on top (use a cloud template)
Stamp wheat from Wetlands w/Delightful Dijon on bottom of card.
On scrap white, stamp Scarecrow & color.  Use Cookie Cutter Punch & punch out.
Stamp sentiment w/Dijon ink.
