Hello, Friend!

Standard

I just love the color purple, especially when it it’s paired with white! This Concord Crush Designer Series Paper was added to Whisper White Card Stock to make a simple, but pretty card for the Challenge over at 365 Cards. They have a different challenge every day, so if you ever get in a funk and are at a loss for ideas, that is the place to go.

The flower was punched out using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. This is an awesome punch that will cut out 3 different shapes! I added a Designer Printed Brad and some Hemp Twine to the flower and tied it on the white satin bow. I backed it with a piece of designer paper which had been cut out with the Decorative Label Punch. Easy-Peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry

E is for Everything

Standard

I’m home from Maine now and I managed to bring back a cold with me, so I haven’t been doing too much. I did manage to make a couple of cards for some challenges. This card was made for the CPS-Card Challenge #241.

I used my favorite Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! again-Spice Cake! I used 3 of the designs out of the pack. This time I used Pool Party and Chocolate Chip Card Stock along with it.

I stamped one of the images from the Four Frames Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip Ink on the Pool Party CS and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.

The sentiment on the tag is from the Occasions Alphabet Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! The set contains 26 stamps, one for each letter of the alphabet and a sentiment to go with it. It’s a very handy set!

I added a piece of Victoria Vintage Trim and 3 Basic Pearls to the card front.Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry

The Willow-Wren and the Bear

Standard

The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is to get inspiration from a Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme. When I was teaching, I loved to read Fairy Tales by the Grimm Brothers to my students and The Willow-Wren and the Bear was one of my favorites.  

So, I had to use my Bird Builder Punch once again! (If you are new to my website and you look around, you will see that I love birds!) The Early Espresso Card Stock represents the bear, the red button-the fox, the vintage trim – the queen, and the bird-the King of the Birds. I even used a fancy flourish to represent the kingdom. I’ve made cards like this before in different colors, but this one is my favorite because there’s an underlying story behind it! Hope you like it as much as I do. this was such a fun challenge!

Candle Wraps Make Great Handmade Christmas Gifts!

Standard

This is a candle wrap I made for a set of short candle pillars. These are so fast and easy to make and they make great gifts! You can do them for any season or holiday and make them any size you need.

Directions: I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and cut it so it fit around the candle holder with about 1/2″ extra. I rolled it with the Sparkle and Shine Jumbo Stampin’ Wheel (116542) using Real Red Ink. The Scallop Circles where punched out of Garden Green CS with the2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch(118874) and a dot of glitter was added to each scallop. The ornaments were cut out of Designer Paper (not sure from were because I’ve had it a long time) with the Ornament Punch(119847). I put Sticky Strip along the top of the Whisper White CS and added a strip of dotted ribbon the length of the card stock. Then I placed another strip along the side where the card stock overlaps in the back of the candle holder. The scallop circles were adhered to the front of the candle wrap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the ornaments were adhered to them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put a piece of Hemp Twine through the clasp of a small, clay Gingerbread Man ornament and tied it around the wrap, on top of the ribbon. It only took about 10 minutes and I was finished! I hope you give these candle wraps a try.

All the items in bold are Stampin’ Up. Go to my online store to order everything you need to make these candle wraps by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” Button in the right-hand column.

I am entering these in The Paper Players Red and Green Challenge #68 this week.

Life is a Matter of Moments

Standard

This card is one of my all-time favorites!

When I first looked at the colors in the Fall Color Challenge over at Our Creative Corner, I thought, “Ugh, those colors won’t look good together.”  But, once I started putting papers together, I knew it was going to work!

I’ve been busy making cards with the other colors of DSP in the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog, but hadn’t used this Old Olive Print until now.  (Every print in this package of DSP is gorgeous and I will be using every scrap of it!)

The card base is made with Cajun Craze Card Stock.  I took  slightly smaller pieces of Crumb Cake CS and the DSP, punched the corners with Ticket Corner Punch and adhered them together.  Then I added a brad to each corner of the panel and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The smaller layer was done the same way, but  I added a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim to the front of it before adhering it to the card.  I stamped the flower from the Creative Elements Stamp Set 3 times with Chocolate Chip Ink onto Cajun Craze CS. Then I cut 2 of the images smaller so I would have a 3-layer flower.  I went over the edges of each petal with my Chocolate Chip Marker to make them stand out more and then added a few highlights with a Signo Gel Pen.  The 3 pieces were adhered together and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the label with the dots from the Four Frames Stamp Set using the rock-n-roll method in Old Olive and Cajun Craze Inks, and cut it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  The sentiment was stamped in the middle of the label and then I sponged a tiny bit of the inks in the middle of it.  It is matted with a piece of Cajun Craze.  I just love the way it looks!  Hope you do, too.

All products are from Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased from my online store 24/7 by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” button in the right-hand column.

Cards & Things Challenge

Standard

 

This is the card I’m entering in the Cards & Things Challenge this week. The card was made with Very Vanilla Card Stock. I layered a piece of Tangerine Tango CS, which was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, on the front of the card. I cut out a piece of First Edition Specialty Paper with the Top Note Bigz Die, cut off the right side of it, sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango Ink, and adhered it to the card front.  The bird, the bird’s wing and the branch were all punched out using the Build a Bird Punch. They were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Happy Birthday was stamped on a small piece of the First Edition Specialty Paper and was cut out with scissors. Last, I added a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim and a button to match.  All products, except the button, are Stampin’ Up!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry

Tissue Box Cover

Standard

I love this paper! It’s only one of the 12 designs from Well Worn, a new Designer Series Paper Pack from Stampin’ Up. I wanted to make a tissue box cover for my son’s bathroom so I needed something masculine. This is what I came up with. I was kind of worried about the crochet trim but he really liked it!

I also used Pacific Point andCajun Craze Card Stock. The bird is from the Nature Walk Stamp Set and was stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink onSahara Sand Cardstock. I added some detail, cut it out, and adhered it the piece of Cajun Craze withStampin’ Dimensionals. The two antique brads are also from Stampin’ Up!
