Itty Bitty Christmas


Since we have had so much snow lately, this card fits into the way it feels around here...

I focused on the Let it Snow specialty designer series paper on this card adding a large layer of it over some Real Red card stock that was embossed with the Brick and Mortar folder.  


The sentiment is cut with the Stitched rectangles framelits and stamped with Pacific Point ink.  The saying comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set that is in the holiday catalog.

Birthday Catch


I was playing around with walleye colors again on using my Stampin' Blends on the Best Catch images and came up with this card that uses the Crackle Paint stamp as a background.


The card base and piece behind the fish and bag are Balmy Blue and I added some linen thread wrapped around the layers to break up the card just a little.  The sentiment comes from Here's A Card and is stamped with Night of Navy ink on a die cut made using the Stitched Shapes framelits.

Hammered Textures


The harvest season has had another setback unfortunately - this time in the form of a blizzard that dropped around 18" of heavy snow.  We still have about a third of our potato crop in the field as well as all of our soybeans so if we can get back into the fields it is going to be another long fall...


I would love to say that the setback gives me a lot more time in the stamp room, but that isn't the case - always so many other things that need to be done, but hopefully I can give you a few more project ideas...

This card is a result of playing around with some different textures and colors...I started with the Tasteful Textures stamp set and used Granny Apple Green ink on a Whisper White card stock base.  


Then, I embossed some Granny Apple Green card stock with the Hammered Metal folder and punched out a 2" circle.  The layer under the circle is a piece of Noble Peacock specialty designer series paper and my sentiment layer is die cut with the Stitched labels collection.  


Supplies:
Tasteful Textures, Love What You Do
Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green ink
Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green card stock
Noble Peacock specialty dsp
2" circle punch
Hammered Metal folder
Stitched Labels framelits

October Stamp Club


This month's stamp club projects use a few things from the Holiday catalog and a few others from the catalog and idea book.  I always like to use a mix of the two this time of year...


The layout started out with the Let it Snow specialty designer series paper and I added card stock photo mats in coordinating colors to the paper.  What is so fun about this paper is that one side has lots of glitter elements - for example, the snowmen are covered in glitter, and it gives a little texture to the projects as well.

World Card Making Day


Most years I am not able to celebrate World Card Making Day (which was on Saturday) but due to the extremely wet fields that have been keeping us from harvesting potatoes and soybeans I was able to celebrate this year by making a few cards!


I will share them in more detail at a later time...The top picture shows some Christmas, wedding, get well, and other occasions and in the bottom picture, I used the add on kit for the August Paper Pumpkin kit to make another 20 thank you cards.  


Hope you were able to celebrate World Card Making Day as well!

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards


I did not add a whole lot of materials other than card stock when I made these cards from the items in the September Paper Pumpkin kit.  On the first one, I added Basic Black and Gorgeous Grape card stock, Old Olive thread and White craft ink...


I cut down one of the goodie boxes and used it as a pocket on the inside of this card attaching it with tear and tape adhesive.


The second card also uses a Gorgeous Grape card stock base along with some added Basic Gray card stock and linen thread.


I hope you enjoyed the alternative ideas!  
The next two months kits will coordinate so you won't want to miss out on them.  Be sure to sign up for yours before November 10th!

I cut down a box for a card that you will see tomorrow and had some parts of it left so I used it on the 12" x 12" scrapbook layout below as well.  In addition to the pieces from the kit, I added some Mercury Glass designer acetate and Noble Peacock Foil Sheets in the background and Smoky Slate and Basic Gray card stock.
