I am going to show you 4 cards done in the same design but just using a couple of different products.
  • Supplies:
  • White card stock - 8 1/2" X 5 1/2"
  • Real Red card stock and Ink- 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" (x2)
  • Garden Green card stock and Ink (Scrap for 3 leaves)
  • Crushed Curry card stock (scrap for dots for middle of flowers)
  •  Silver & Gold Foil Strip - 1/2"" X 5 1/2"
  • Designer Series Paper - 2" X 5 1/2"
  • Plush Poinetttia Specialty Paper - 3 3/4" X 3 3/4"
  • Beaded Pearls
  • Winter Snow Embossing Folder
  • Versamark
  • Silver, Gold & White embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool

  1. Using the 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" (2 pieces) of Real Red card stock stamp 2 of the poinsettias, I did 2 different sizes using your Real Red Ink then cut them you using the dies.  The white card you might want to fussy cut the poinsettia and the leaves out by hand and that way you are able to save some.
  2. Use the scrap of Garden Green for the leaves, stamp them using the Garden Green ink.  Then cut them out.
  3. Cut out the centers for the flowers using the Crushed curry.
  4. Now you can start assembling the cards.  Attach the 1/2" gold or silver strips onto the designer series paper or the White 2" X 5 1/2" after you have embossed this using the Winter Snow Embossing folder.
  5. Attach the 2 flowers together, I put the smaller one on the bottom and attached the bigger one using glue dots or adhesive, then put the small Crushed Curry dots in the middle of the flower.
  6. Attach the flower t then add your leaves to the card using glue dots.
  7. The Merry Christmas is stamped in Garden Green on the card that you are not doing any embossing on.
  8. On the other 3 cards you will want to do the embossing with the Gold and Silver before you begin to assemble the cards.
 Happy Crafting

Calendar Holders

IMG 1790     IMG 1787    

When I saw this stamp set in the New Mini I knew it was going to be my first purchase.  My husband is an avid golfer and we have a lot of friends who are golfers also so I knew it would be put to good use.
This calendar holder is so easy to make.

Base - thick Whisper White - 4 3/8" X 10 5/8", score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2", another white piece 4 1/4" X 2 1/2" for your focal point.
Mat - Night of Navy - 4 X 2 1/2" (X2), 4 X 5 1/4"
Designer Series Paper - 2 3/4" X 3 3/4", 3 3/4" X 2 1/4" (X2)

For the base fold along the 5 1/2" score line and then fold along the 2 3/4" score line, you want to fold that one into the center.  It will form a peak and the edge of that will rest up against the calendar.
I used the Blends to color in the golfer and the Tee and Grass are also done with the blends.

Playful Penguins

IMG 1691 2

I loved playing with the Playful Penguin stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue.  I want to show you four cards I made:

The first one on the left is made with a Shaded Spruce card base and the front is only  half front on the bottom.  I used Whisper White on the inside and on the outside. The front panel has a mat of gold foil and then a piece of designer series paper from Wrapped in Plaid. The focal point is a Shaded Spruce scalloped oval with a white oval with the penguin stamped on the front.  The penguin's scarf and santa hat are stamped in Cherry Cobbler

The top middle card has a base in Whisper White, a Basic Black matte, and a Whisper White front matte that I sponged with 3 different shades of yellow, starting with the lightest color and working up to the darker.  The 3 penguins were stamped on a piece of scrap Whisper White then fussy cut. 

The card on the right with the single penguin has a Cherry Cobbler base, a Pool Party matte and a piece of Whisper White that is ripped across the top and then spritzed with a mix of a few drops of shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol in a spritzer bottle. The die-cut snowflakes are from the Christmas Layers Dies.  The scalloped square was cut from Cherry Cobbler and the white square from Whisper White using the Square Layering Dies.  The penguin is stamped in the middle of the white. 

The last card, bottom middle, the Merriest Wishes, has a Basic Black base with a Cherry Cobbler matte and a Whisper White front.  The tree stamp is from the Merry Moose set and the 2 penguins are stamped on the front.  The hat and scarf are stamped in cherry cobbler on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut.
