Movie Night

My friend's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and for her gift I am taking her to see a movie and lunch. So this is a card I made for her with some movie popcorn and a movie ticket stub on the front.

I made the popcorn using the Boho Blossoms punch and added some sponging with Daffodil Delight for the "butter." :)

Boughs of Holly

This card is a CASE of this one...when I first saw it, I knew immediately that I wanted to try my hand at it because it is simply stunning!

The ornament was made using the ornament punch through the Crumb Cake card stock. Then place a piece of the Designer Fabric behind it using plenty of Sticky Strip to hold it in place. Add a cotton ball to make the ornament "poof" through the punched ornament hole, use more sticky strip to hold the layer of card stock on behind it and viola! You have a gorgeous card! The branch is one of the trees from "Lovely as a Tree." You can't go wrong with this stamp set.

Try it--you'll be surprised how easy this card is!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Hope you are enjoying a day of family, food and rest! I have never been one to enjoy the Thanksgiving grub (I'm weird, I know!)...I'm not a big turkey or ham eater, so my Thanksgiving meal would consist of grilled cheese sandwiches growing up, and I was perfectly okay with that! I have broadened my horizons some in the past few years, but still pass on the main dishes and save room for pie! :D But, it is always nice to spend time with the ones you love and be thankful--we truly are blessed and have so much to be thankful for!

I used my handy-dandy Color Coach to offer a color combination for today's card. I wanted something "fall-like" so it was easy to skim through the Coach until the right combo caught my eye: Bravo Burgandy, Old Olive, and More Mustard! I admit, this is the very first time that I have used Bravo Burgandy for anything! :) And I like it!

The flowers for the vase were made with the "Autumn Days" stamp set, and the Happy Thanksgiving was a perfect image pulled from "Teeny Tiny Wishes." The clean and simple layout was touched up just a bit with a pair of More Mustard buttons and a small dash of Old Olive 1/4" ribbon for the vase!

Glitter Glass Ornaments

You may remember when I posted the glitter glass ornaments that I created to put on my tree last Christmas...Mine were done using a Real Red ink refiller. This year, as one of the projects in my Christmas Gift Giving class, each person made a dozen glass glitter ornaments. And the best part was that each person got to choose their own color for their ornaments! I was so excited to see how everyone's turned out, with the wide selection of colors used--they were gorgeous! Here are the different colors that were represented (plus Real Red, which I didn't photograph since I'd already done so a year ago with mine).

Pumpkin Pie:

Cherry Cobbler:

So Saffron (which I love b/c it looks gold!):

Rich Razzleberry:

Night of Navy:

Christmas Class Doorprize

I held a Christmas gift giving class last week, and we had a blast! We made glitter glass ornaments, fabric pendants, and ceramic tiles. I will be posting pictures of some of the projects as the week progresses, but first I wanted to share with you some coordinating cards that I made for a door prize. I made two sets of four with coordinating envelopes. I will post two cards today and save the other two for later this week.

The fabric pendant was made with some of our delightful Designer fabric, and these cards coordinate with the Candy Lane DSP.

A big THANKS to all of the gals who came out and participated in this class!

You may remember this altered notebook that I gave to my downline a couple of month's are three more of the same layout using different DSP color schemes that I made for the hostesses in my club.

Mojo Monday-Christmas style

It's been a while since I've participated in the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I thought today was as good as any to try it again, so this is what I features the snowman stamp from "Holiday Lineup," and some of the Candy Cane Christmas DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Christmas Card Marathon Pt. 4

This card is a CASE of this one--I loved how simple it was, and the card just popped out at me when I saw it. I changed the DSP to Christmas themed paper and the "Do not open til Christmas" stamp from the "Tags Til Christmas" stamp set worked perfectly.

Did you know that right now you can get the "Tags Til Christmas" stamp set for 20% off right now when you pair it with the Decorative Label punch in a fabulous bundle? Don't wait! This promotion is only good through December 16th!

Christmas Card Marathon Pt. 3

Part 3 of my Christmas card marathon...this is a technique that has been around for a while but I finally got around to making a card with it: using the stamp from "Autumn Days" alternating the stamp a few degrees each time to make this delightful, colorful wreath! Added a touch of color with a small bow to the base of the wreath, and one small rhinestone jewel for some Christmas sparkle!
