Late Night CardMaking

I don''t know about you but my creative juices always kick in long about 11:30 p.m. 😲😲 So I am usually up late nights creating. Last night was no exception. Here are the two cards I made before I turned in. 

PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS!

The card below was created using DSP from SU! Warmth & Cheer. The die cut is from my friend Debbie Segler. The little bells charm is from SU!


The card below is mad from Stampin' Up! DSP Candy Cane Lane, the Cable Knit EF some old buttons and twine and Silver Bells Ring Flair Pin.


Below is a photo of my 4 month old puppy Suki' enjoying her backyard. She only weighs 9 lbs. She is a mixed breed puppy - Cairn Terrier and Dachshund. Isn't she just the cutest? One day last week she chased a squirrel from the right side to the left side of this backyard. She came very close to catching it! She's F-A-S-T!!!!

Play Date with Debbie Segler

The first card was created with SU! products from the embossing folder to the stamps to the dangling charm.
This card is very CAS. So if you are in a hurry and need a dozen or more cards, this one can be thrown together in a jiffy! You could even change the colors of inks you use to stamp the trees.


Deb came over on Sunday. We played a while. I didn't get very many cards made, however... 
Deb brought some beautful dies she had gotten for her birthday. OMW! I wanted to KEEP them! 

There were words like Peace, Jingle, HOHOHO, Merry, Merry Christmas, etc. You can see the Merry on the following card. The DSP and Merry Mice are from Stampin' Up!

This week at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenges is to use GLITTER! SO if you look at the frame and scroll work surrounding my stamped sentiment you will notice my glitter. I am so enjoying adding glitter to my cards without having to sprinkle. A lot of the manufacturers are making glitter or sparkle cardstock these days. Isn't that simply fabby!!!😍

For my card I used some dsp from Echo Park Hello Winter scrapbooking kit. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Dies are from SU!Framelits Labels Collection (125598) and Spellbinders Botanical Bliss.

Ombre Christmas Card


I love this stamp from Hero Arts. I just have had a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to use it. Then I stumbled upon a video on YouTube of someone using a different stamp but using the ombre effect. It worked out better than I expected. So I sandwiched the stamped image between two pieces of acetate. I'm pleased. May try this one again with different colors. 

Ribbon is from Stampin' Up!

Another Christmas Card


All because of this die cut! I love this die cut and had to use it on a card. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! set - Wonderland. The die is from Memory Box - Frostyville Border. Isn't it just fabby!!!


The sentiment on the inside is also from Stampin' Up! The set is called Versatile Christmas. It's one of my favs because it has so many sentiments in it.

More Christmas


This card just came together in my mind. Then I quickly got it together in real life. It actually worked better than planned. The dsp is from The Paper Studio - There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays paper pack. I cut it 4 1/8" x 5 3/8". Then I used distress ink and inked it up. Set that aside. Then I stamped my bird  and pine images from Craftwork Cards Clear Stamps - Christmas Cheer. The sentiment is from Flourishes - Country Time Christmas. The bird was colored with color pencils and I layered over it some Wink of Stella clear.


I'm not positive but I believe this sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. 

I am working hard to get all my Christmas cards made before December 1, 2016! 
I hope I get them all done.

Please COMMENT on my creations. I work hard. Lots of people visit but only a select 2 or 3 ever comment. I appreciate those folks so much. But it would be nice to hear from others as well. If you like what you see, please let me know. Even if you don't like what you see, comment. I can take the criticism.

Krazy Kreations Glitter Card Kits

My local scrapbooking store had a 10% off sale this weekend (Nov. 3-5). So I took advantage of the sale and bought 4 Krazy Kreations Studios Glitter Card Kits. Below are the cards I made along with their coordinating item numbers.

 Poinsettia Item # KK3060CK


Gingerbread Item # KK3009CK 


Cardinal Item #KK3058CK


These are very simple to make. I think children from age 7 - up could make these with a little cutting assistance from an adult. It's simply peel the stickers off and stick them onto the glitter paper. Then color with Copics or any markers really (on mine I used Copics and Stampin' Up! markers). Cut them out along the outside of the black lines. Use glue or dimensional adhesives to adhere the stickers to your card. Great thing is, there are enough supplies in each kit to make 3 cards and they even include the envelopes for mailing!
I bought one more but I haven't created a card with it yet so I will save it for another post. 
Hope you like these fun Sunday Christmas cards I've made today.

I've been working on Christmas cards for this year. Here's just a few I created this week. Some were inspired by Pinterest. Others are from my own imagination.
This 1st card was created for a challenge for a group I belong to on FaceBook. We could only use blue and white. Nailed it!

Echo Park Paper Co. - Hello Winter Collection of paper and stickers.


#2 was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. The teardrops are actually the wings from Stampin' Up! Bird Builder Punch.


#3 Inspired once again by Pinterest.


#4 Was created using the dies from Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh and the stamps from Santa's Sleigh. This card opens to the full width of 8 1/2 ".


the middle is open to display a dangling ornament. 


#5 is my own design. Stampin' Up! Stamps Beautiful Season and Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds for the sentiment on cover.


Inside sentiment is from More Merry Messages from Stampin' Up!


#6 Another of my own designs. Decorative vellum is from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catty.
The poinsettia is a sticker.

PPCM&SGFB Giveaway

GIVE AWAY!!! For Paper Paws Swap Group ONLY!!!
This is a card I made for a give Away. All you have to do is pick a number between 1 and 1000. I asked hubs to pick the number, write it down and slip it into an envelope. On October 22 I will reveal the winning number. If your number is picked I will mail this card to you. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeasy! Now get picking!


For this card, I used Distress inks on whisper white cardstock. I used a Ranger blending tool to apply ink in a circular motion. The pinks were applied to the upper portion of the cs leaving a pale space for the sun. I punched a circle in a piece of post it paper. Then used a yellow ink and the blending tool to make my sun. Then I tore the paper to make the misty yellow on the sides of the sun. I then used the blending tool and some green ink on the bottom portion of the cs. I used some rock stamps to stamp the rocks in a medium brown. Then I went over them with the highlight stamps in Momento Black. I then used the black Momento ink to stamp the Lavinia Fairy. JustRite Clear Multi-Step Landscaping Elements are the stamps I used for the trees, flowers, grass and rocks. All of them are in the one set. To make the mountains in the background, I tore a piece of computer paper. I laid the torn edge of the paper on my scene, using a dauber and the Momento black ink, a downward pulling direction I made the mountains. Using another Lavinia stamp I stamped the plants across the top working right to left. Then down the left side. I used the blending tool and purple distress ink I went around all of the edges of the cardstock. I added white gel pen dots and some Stickles to the wings of the fairy and the flower pods. 
I think that's it. It takes about an hour for me to create one of these. Let me know if you have any questions.

Crazy4Challenges #343 Lighthouse or Sea Inspired
Below is my card. I used the set #1083 Light of the World from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. Love this inspirational set from Korin Sutherland.


The image was stamped with Memento Black. Then colored with my color pencils. The frame was a scrap of white cardstock with the gold design embossed into it. I used me dauber and my SU! Midnight Muse and Island Indigo ink pads to give is some color. Then I added rhinestones for embellishment. The sentiment is also from the Sweet n Sassy set.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Builder Framelits

Ever since I laid my eyes on this set of framelits from Stampin' Up! I can't get enough of them!!! 
Below are just a few of the cards I have made with this set. 
The first card is for a friend's baby girl. I stuck with the pale pinks and a sort of peach with an accent of pistachio green. The card has since arrived at its destination and Mommy just loved it!


The card below I just made for fun. But it just goes to show you can do sooo much with this set. 


Like monochromatic???
Then give this a try!!!


Add that little pleated curtain effect to the die cut pieces and watch the magic happen!!!

Happy Birthday Kaley



Recently my cousin, Pat asked me to create a card for her granddaughter Kaley. Pat told me Kaley likes horses and the color green. She also stated that Kaley was turning 17. So, as I pondered what I would create for Kaley's 17th birthday card, the wheels began to turn. I knew I wanted to wow both Pat and Kaley. So I immediately decided to stamp a scene. So I pulled out my mountain scene stamp from Stampscapes and stamped onto glossy cardstock (photo paper) with Memento Black. Then I added some trees from Stampscapes and Stampin' Up! The Mare and colt from Stampabilities was stamped onto a separate piece of glossy cardstock then cut out. Using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! I created a window. I colored the images with my Stampin' Up! markers and a dauber. Added highlights with a white gel pen. The dotted Ranger Liquid Pearls to make the flowers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! The flowers are Petaloo. The card is interactive in that when you pull and push the side tabs the mare and the colt come together and the mare kisses the colts head.

This card was great fun creating. A labor of love.

Curtain Call May 1

Firstly, let me wish all the moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!

Below is my card for the Curtain Call May 1 challenge.


My card was created using the Sweet Floral stamp from Stampin' Up! I stamped the image with Versa Mark and used Pan Pastels to smudge the colors. On top I place a die cut in shiny gold. I stamped the butterfly and colored it with my ColourArts Silks acrylic paints. Then went over it with my Wink of Stella. I love this clean and simple card! 
If I'd have left the sentiment off, this would have been a perfect Mother's Day card! 
Hope you have a blessed Mother's Day.
