Northern Flurry

Hi All.
Well here again for another early, or if you prefer late night post! I finished making the final card for my friends stamp a stack and wanted to share it.
 
I kept with the use of "blues" and did a base of Pool Party and embossed a layer of vellum with the Northern Flurry EF. I love the classic look you get from using vellum. It packs a lot of punch with minimal effort! I finished it off with some Pool Party Bakers twine and a greeting from Christmas Messages and punched it out with my ornament punch with a little added "bling" from a rhinestone. Just realized you can see my truck in the background! Lol! Sorry about that I was a bit tired when I took the picture last night and wasn't paying close attention!
Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely as a tree clasic

Hi All,
I wanted to share a card we will be making at my friends upcoming stamp a stack. I decided that I wanted to do a classic card using Lovely as a Tree. I've seen it many places and have done it a few times myself and it one of those cards that never gets old. See for yourself:
 I used a base of Whisper White, a layer of Marina Mist and Basic Black, which really gives the image a nice "pop". The image is stamped in Staz on Ink on glossy paper and I used my daubers to add the sky in coordinating shades of blue, The "snow" was done with silver and clear Dazzling Details. The sentiment was stamped in Silver Encore Ink. Love the overall clean but classic look.

I also wanted to share this weeks deals:

Twins Anyone??

Hi All
I wanted to share a  set of cards that I made for some friends who are expecting twins! I am in love with Stampin Up's Something for Baby stamp set and the coordinating Babys First framelits! They make these types of cards easy to create! Here is what I created:

 
I used a base of Pool Party for one and Pistachio Pudding for the other. On the Pool Party card I hope you notice the two blue onesies as my friend is having two boys while on the other I have a blue and pink onesies as, you guessed it my other friend is expecting a boy and girl. I used the Sweet Sorbet DP for the center and popped up the sentiment on dimensionals. They were a lot of fun to make!
Thanks for stopping by!

Another Freshly Made Saturday

Morning All,
I wanted to share the last Christmas card that I made as part of my Great Aunt's birthday gift. I have been pushing all my activities to the wire lately as my little guy comes first but I did want to make sure I kept up with the tradition of making all of my Aunts greeting cards. For my inspiration I went on over to Freshly Made Sketches and they had another great sketch:

 
Without further adieu here is what I came up with:
 
 
I used a base of Always Artichoke, a layer of Crumb Cake and the last pieces of my Deck the Halls DP that I had squirrel away. I just love the vintage look! I ran the Crumb Cake through the Script EF, punched out an ornament and added a few pearls after "ageing" the edges of the ornament. I hope she likes it! Have a great day!

Late night or ealy morning post

Hi All,
As I sit here in the wee hours of the morning I realized that I never posted the card I made for a friends upcoming stamp a stack! I had gone on over to Pals Paper Arts and they had this great sketch:
PPA220Here is what I came up with:
 
I absolutely love combining silver with Pool Party! I used a base of Whisper White with some Winter Frost DP, some of the beautiful silver ribbon and foil paper and stamped the sentiment in Silver Encore ink. Love the colors!! Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Mojo!

Morning All,
I wanted to share the birthday card that I made for my 102 year old grandmother. I have been slowly working away at her gifts (as I make all of her greeting cards) but I hadn't attempted this special card yet. So I went on over to Mojo Monday and they had another great sketch:

Here is what I came up with:
 
After rotating the sketch I used a base of some Pretty  in Pink I had left over and some of my retired Afternoon Picnic DP that I had (loved the flowers!). I ran the pink panel through my vintage folder and the green panel through my stripes folder. The butterflies were Dies cut with the smaller punched out. A pearl and some crochet ribbon and I was done. I really hope she loves the vintage look!
Thanks for stopping by!
