Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set

Here is a card for all seasons.  
By coloring with different colors you can make it for any season or holiday.

We did colors for Christmas in this class.

Country Home stamp set
Soft Suede Card base 5.5" x 8.5"  Score and fold at 4.25"
Whisper White - Ink back side- inside if Tin Tile embossing folder,
and run through Big Shot with white cardstock layer inside.
Soft Suede under image 2.75" x 3.75"
White image layer 2.5" x 3.5"
Stamp both images in Tranquil Tide.  Color with Watercolor pencils.
Blend with blender pen.
Linen Thread bow attached with a glue dot.
2 banner strips, 1/2" x 1"  Trim ends to banner shape.
Slide one farther under Soft Suede image when attaching to card front.

I recommend the Multi Purpose Liquid glue for attaching cardstock that has been embossed.
it has a better grip and gives you a little time to move stuff around to line it up.

Inspired by a card by Lyssa Zwolanek.

Happy stamping!

#SimpleStamping Christmas Cards

At Onstage presenters talked about the different levels of stamping.  
How in this busy time we could bring things back to simple stamping.  
It would give our customers and ourselves the joy of stamping, 
and getting a card done quickly.  I always try to include a few cards in my classes 
that are quick and cute, so I can offer levels of stamping for all my customers.

Here are a few from November's classes.
I was lazy, and took pictures of the cards attached to the buckets.
Better to post than wait to set up the light station!

Shaded Spruce Cardstock base 5.5" x 8.5"  Fold in half or score and fold at 4.25"
All Is Bright Designer Paper 2" x 5.5"
Real Red Strip 1/2" x 5.25" - This could be 5.5" and go right to the edge.  These strips were in the paper drawer so I used them.
Real Red Circle - Layering Circle Framelits 2.5" size

Stamp your greeting first, then punch your circle out.
Whisper White 2 1/4" Circle Punch
Shaded Spruce Ink
Greeting - Farmhouse Christmas Photopolymer stamp set

Same style just a little more dsp and I offset the circle.

Very Vanilla Cardstock base 5.5" x 8.5"  Fold in half or score and fold at 4.25"
All is bright Designer Paper 2" x 5.25" - One side is festive Red and Green, the other elegant picture designs.
Gold Metallic Strip 1/2" x 5.25"
Gold Metallic Circle - Layering Circle Framelits 2.5" size

Stamp your greeting first, then punch your circle out.
Whisper White 2 1/4" Circle Punch
Soft Suede Ink - Yes it looks great with this paper!
Greeting - Winter Woods stamp set


Happy stamping!

This is the month to be grateful.  
Well, every month we should be grateful for the blessings in our life.

I don't share much personal info on here.  Geesh, no one wants to hear my sad stories.  lol  
I suffer from anxiety issues.  Pretty bad some days.  I am grateful for my pup, Mickey.  
He had made a word of difference in my life.  He helps me hold back the heebie jeebbies 
that take over my head sometimes, mostly because I have to take care of him first.  
Also if he doesn't bark at the weird noises at night, I don't worry about them either!

What are you grateful for in your life?
Leave a comment, let me know.  
My comments are moderated so it will take a little while for them to upload.

Here is Mickey at Canine Kids, in Casco WI, while I was at Onstage in Florida.
  They take such good care of him there.  He may not always like being there, 
but they have the dogs out and playing all day.  I love how good they are to him.

In his kennel area.  
It has a cot for his blanket and bed to be on, and lots of room to move around.

 Outside Play

 Inside Play

The Bella stamp set looks like him, or he looks like it.  :)

No, not deja vu.  These cards were previously posted on my blog.

Happy stamping!

A WOW card!

Embossed with the Swirls and Curls embossing folder, 
then sponged with Frost White shimmer paint,
made for a quick and elegant card.

Yes, retired seam binding ribbon, but it was all that looked good that I had on hand.
That's what happens when you need a card last minute.

Happy stamping!

Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - card 3

I found a card online somewhere, the stamper did something really different with this folder.
So I had to try it by casing the idea.  I sponged Versamark on an embossed image.  
Covered it with Silver Embossing Powder, then punched it out with a circle framelit.
I layered it over a second embossed image  and added the cardstock flags below the circle.

Versamark, Night of Navy ink
Silver Embossing Powder
Tranquil Textures dsp
Laying Circles Framelits

Treat Card Tutorial - Enjoy Life Stamp Set

These were my thank you cards for August orders.  
I wanted to give a treat but not make 2 things, 
as I had already given out shaker bookmarks in my classes.

 These are so easy to make.
Night of Navy cardstock base 5.5" x 8.5"
Score at 4.25" Fold in half.

Twinkle, Twinkle Designer paper - 4" x 5.25"
Attach to front of card base only around the edges.  You'll  be using the dsp piece that you punch.

Slide the card all the way into the Everyday Label Punch.
Punching the opening the candy bar will sit in.

Attach a layer of Whisper White 4" x 5.25" inside the card on right hand side.

I wrapped Hershey Milk Chocolate Nuggets in Twinkle, Twinkle Designer paper. 1" x 3" strips
Use Tear and Tape to adhere the dsp to the candy bar and the card.
I applied 2 strips of tape on the back of the candy bar, making sure one went over the paper edge.

Close the card and adhere candy bar in center of opening.
I punched a star with a retired punch, oops, and attached it to the candy bar with a glue dot.
The Twinkle Builder Punch has a same size star in it.

Image: Clear Block Stamping.
Ink small clear block C with Mint Macaroon and Balmy Blue.
Spritz with water and stamp on Whisper White cardstock.  
Set aside to dry or use a heat gun to gently dry the paper.

When dry, stamp bike rider image in Night of Navy over block stamping.
Trim around shape.

Cut a 3/4" x 2.75" strip of Mint Macaroon.  
Cut a banner end in the very end edge with the Triple Banner punch.
I use the punch upside down to see where the paper is in the punch.
Attach these to card.

Whisper White cs 1" x 3" 
Punch just at the ends of the edge to create banner ends.
Again using the Triple Banner punch upside down.
I used the designer paper piece I punched out of the front layers under my greeting.
Attach to card and you're done.

Any candy that has a flat side, and fits in the opening,  would work.
This card could have so many uses.  Add a gift card pocket to the inside 
below the candy bar and it could be used for many occasions!

Happy stamping!

Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - card 2

A very simple wedding card.

I embossed the flower, then painted in and on the embossed area 
with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush to add a bit of dazzle.
Layered the white embossed layer on a white card base.
A few pearls scattered over the front. (These are the last of the tiny size
 from the past catalog.)  I trimmed one end of the Classic Label Punch shape. 
 Tied it with Gold Metallic Thread, it's all ready for a wedding!
