Birthday Bliss

This card is simple to make the base is Basic Black, then Real Red, the Whisper White was folded then ran through the crimper. With a black and real red marker I color the birthday bliss stamp and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White. I ran the the Real Red through the Big Shot with the Lots of tags sizzlit. I like how it turned out.

The Peace on Earth card is the card we ended up making in our club this month, it was the card I reference in a post earlier this month. The second one is a card I made a couple of months ago we I was trying to come up with cards for my Punch Pals class, I didn't do this card as part of the class. The darker area under the snowman and penguin is iridescent ice.
I hope you all have a lovely holiday.

Wedding- no stamping

My son has my camera so the reflection card will have to wait... So many of my daughters friends have been getting married so I've made lots of wedding cards. This card is a CASE of one I saw a few months ago, I wish I could tell you where I had seen it but it didn't bookmark it, just filed the idea in my head. It doesn't show well in the photo but both hearts are embossed, the bride with dots, the groom with the diamonds, as well as the Whisper White that they are layered on (Texture plates, SU! backgrounds1) the half pearls are from the Pretties kit. the knot is black grosgrain ribbon, I used the large heart punch and then free cut the red hearts. White, black and red have been the popular wedding colors this year.

Sometimes cards just don't work out!

I thought I'd share 3 cards I made over the last month that just didn't work for me, I hope you enjoy them anyway. I redid the mirror image card for my club on Tuesday, I'll have to take a picture of it because it turned out so much better.
Remember the 12 days of Christmas sale... all Big Shot.

Asian Artistry- Sympathy

This card is Not Quit Navy and Mellow Moss, I used the markers to color the stamp and then stamped the image on Very Vanilla. I colored the ribbon with the Not Quit Navy marker. The phrase is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Simple and Fast-Christ is Born

When Patty Bennett first showed this technique with the Petals-a-Plenty I had to jump on board with it too. The Christ is Born stamp set is one that I bought because I like the saying, but never worked it onto a card in a way that I was happy with until now. I think I will do the same card again but emboss the words.
My 5 year old Granddaughter(who lives in our home) wanted money to buy Christmas presents. As I have several years worth of sample cards, I told her she could sell cards if she wanted(from time to time my 15 year old son has done that when earning the final money needed for scout camp etc) I sell my cards for $2.00, the seller gets one and I get one. Well She started on Monday, has sold 125 cards so far, with requests to come back to some houses on Sat., Wed. and Friday. 3/4 of my old card samples are now gone:).

Extreme Snowboard

I embossed snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes, corner to corner on the Brilliant Blue card front. The image was embossed with black on a piece of Whisper White that was spritzed with shimmer paint and alcohol. The piece of Basic Black was also spritzed.
