Giving Thanks - Basket of Wishes


Here is another card that will be made at my Holiday Catalog Stamp Camp today. This is the first card I've made with the Basket of Wishes Stamp Set. The images in this set are so beautiful! Also, the designer paper I used is one intended for Christmas...Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack. I love it when an item can be used for projects other than what it was intended for! I also used one of the Mini Pinecones. I love these pinecones. The antiqued copper color is perfect!


Dimensions:
  1. Delightful Dijon:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  2. Soft Suede:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  3. Warmth & Cheer DSP:  4" x 1-1/2" (plaid layer)
  4. Delightful Dijon:  3" x 3-3/4" (scallop oval)
  5. Crumb Cake:  2-3/4" x 3-3/4" (stamped oval)
  6. 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack (Delightful Dijon) - 6"
  7. Linen Thread:  9"
Tips:
  • The embossing on the Soft Suede layer was made with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  • The basket and flowers were stamped with the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, and the greeting was stamped with the Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad.
  • The basket and flowers were watercolored with a Blender Pen and the following Classic Stampin' Pads - Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze, Garden Green, & Soft Suede.
  • The largest scallop oval die and the 2nd largest regular oval die were used from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
  • The pinecone was threaded onto the Linen Thread, and then the thread was tied onto the ribbon.
  • The scallop oval was attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

12 Weeks of Fall & Halloween 2016 - Week #7


I'm sorry for being so late getting this posted today. I guess better late than never! Today's 12 Weeks of Fall & Halloween project is a cute and spooky treat bag. My daughter loves the eyeball stamp, so I just had to use it for this bag. You can use any of the images in the set for your jars, though.


This treat bag features the Jar of Haunts Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog. The stamp set coordinates with the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies from the Annual Catalog. I used the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and Halloween Night Enamel Dots from the Holiday Catalog, too.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Jolly Friends


I'm so sorry that I missed my Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) last week. Last week was super crazy for me, and I ran out of time to get it made. Thankfully, I was able to make one this week!

This week's S&SS card features the Jolly Friends Bundle. The bundle includes the Jolly Friends Stamp Set and the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. Buying these two items as a bundle saves you 10%! I also used the stamp set, Greetings from Santa.

All of my Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) cards are quick and easy to make, so they're perfect if you need to make a card last minute. I always include complete instructions on how to make my Short & Sweet Saturday cards, too.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Real Red Cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Emboss a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock running it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  3. Attach a 4" x 2" piece of peppermint candy paper from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) across a 4" x 2-1/4" piece of Real Red Cardstock. Then, attach this across the center of the Whisper White, embossed layer.
  4. Wrap a 6" piece of Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon around the center of the DSP strip, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the Whisper White, embossed layer. Then, attach the whole thing to the Real Red card base.
  5. Punch a short end of a 2" x 4-1/4" piece of Real Red Cardstock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make a tag. Set aside.
  6. Wrap a 5" strip of peppermint candy tape from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape around the bottom of a 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock, wrapping the edges of the tape around to the back. Stamp the "Ho! Ho! Ho!" stamp from the Greetings from Santa Stamp Set above the washi tape, using the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad.
  7. Punch the top of the Santa hat from a scrap piece of Real Red Cardstock using the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. Attach it to the top, center of the Whisper White piece. Stamp the outline hat trim stamp from the Jolly Friends Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Early Espresso pad. Punch it out with the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. Attach it to the bottom of the Santa hat using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. Attach the stamped piece to the bottom, center of the Real Red tag. Then, attach it to the center of the card, at an angle, using Stampin' Dimensionals. See pictures for placement.
  9. Attach a silver bell from the Mini Jingle Bells onto the tip of the Santa hat with a Mini Glue Dot. Tie a 9" piece of Kraft Rope Trim into a bow, and attach it to the top of the tag with a Mini Glue Dot. Trim the rope ends so they're just above the Santa hat.

Halloween Scares Meets Spooky Fun


I hope you're all having a wonderful day! I finally have a card to share with you. I used this month's Creating Pretty Cards Card Sketch #63 (CPC63) at Craft Project Central. I didn't design a project this month, but I just had to make a card using Monika Davis' great card sketch. If you make a card using the sketch and submit it, you could win a FREE Month Subscription to Craft Project Central! CLICK HERE to find out how.


As you can see, this card has a window that opens into the inside of the card. The picture below shows the inside of the card. I used the tree die in the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic Black Cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Die-cut a circle out of the center, left of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock using the 3rd largest circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.
  3. Stamp the moon stamp from the Halloween Scares Stamp Set onto the top, right corner of the Pumpkin Pie piece using the Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad. Dry the ink with the Heat Tool. Stamp the little bat trio stamp three times using the darkest part of the Black Ombre Stampin' Pad.Attach the piece to the center of the card base.
  4. Line up the blade in the circle die used in Step 2 within the edges of the hole in the Pumpkin Pie layer. Run it through the Big Shot to make the window in the card base.
  5. Attach a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Gray Cardstock to the inside of the card. Close the card. Trace around the inside edges of the window onto the Basic Gray layer inside of the card using a pencil.
  6. Die-cut the tree die from the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies out of a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Basic Black Cardstock. Attach the tree to the inside of the card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Make sure to have the tree attached to the inside, right of the drawn circle. The right tree branches will be outside of the circle a little bit. Erase the pencil mark off.
  7. Cut one 4" x 2" piece of gray brick paper from the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Stamp the "happy halloween" stamp from the Spooky Fun Stamp Set onto the top, right corner of the piece using the darkest part of the Black Ombre Stampin' Pad. Tear about a 1/2" off the bottom edge of the DSP piece, and attach it across the bottom of the Pumpkin Pie layer, covering up the bottom part of the window.
  8. Stamp the house stamp from the Halloween Scares Stamp Set onto a 2" x 3'" piece of Whisper White Cardstock  using the Black Ombre Stampin' Pad. When inking up the stamp, move the stamp up and down a little bit be get a more gradual change in the colors, and prevent there being any white lines in the image. Stamp the pumpkin stamp onto the piece by inking the stamp with the Pumpkin Pie marker from the Brights Collection Stampin' Markers and the Soft Suede marker from the Neutrals Collection Stampin' Write Markers. Cut the house and the pumpkin out freehand using Paper Snips.
  9. Attach the house to the left side of the window, and attach the pumpkin to the bottom, right corner of the house using a Stampin' Dimensional.
