DSC#257 Card Box

Hello! I knew exactly what I was going to make as soon as I saw this challenge. Stampin' Up! has these wonderful Acetate Card Boxes in their Holiday catalog this year and some cute sprigs too!

Sorry for all the glare, although without it you wouldn't be able to see the box! I really wanted to make some cute cards to go inside, but time got away from me this week. This box holds up to 5 cards and envelopes which makes it perfect for giving your beautiful cards away. I decorated it with some other fun products from the 2017 Holiday Catalog. Don't you love the Green Sprigs? Check out that Silver Foil Snowflake! I paired the Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim with some Black Solid Baker's Twine because I liked the red and black plaid paper in the photo!

Ready for Christmas

Hello! I was waiting to share this card until it got a little closer to Christmas, but I can't wait any longer! I love it.

Isn't it fun? I used the Ready for Christmas Bundle products to make this card. Did you notice the pictures on the walls? They were made by cutting little pieces of the Quilted Christmas DSP.

Here's a side view. I scored the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" cardstock at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4" (on the longer side) to make the folds.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you have any questions leave a comment!

DSC#256 Santa's Tree

Hello! If these three colors don't scream Christmas, I don't know what does. :)

I chose to use three pieces of the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" DSP and the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and Thinlits Dies that were released last year, and can still be found in the annual catalog. I love the simple look of this card and it was really quick to make.

Stamp Set: Santa's Sleigh
Paper: Whisper White, Quilted Christmas DSP
Ink: Garden Green, Real Red
Big Shot: Santa's Sleigh Thinlits Dies

Thanks for joining our blog hop today. Hope you found some inspiration for your next project!

Colorful Seasons Shaker Card

Hello! I wanted to share a shaker card that I made using the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. 
I stamped the branch on the card base, laid some loose leaves on top and used some foam adhesive strips to attach the window sheet and top layer. The window was cut out using my Big Shot and the one of the Lots of Labels Framelits.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!

DSC#255 Ready for Christmas

Hello! Boy, did I have fun with this sketch!

I used the Ready for Christmas stamp set and the coordinating Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies to make the two cards I am sharing today. The staircase was stamped directly onto my Whisper White layer and colored in using the brand spanking new Stampin' Blends that go on sale to customers starting today. I can't tell you enough how much I love coloring with these. The table, cookies, and the dog were all stamped and then cut out using the thinlits and my Big Shot. My favorite part of the card is the pine boughs I used to trim the white layer.

This second card is not much different than the first one, but I colored the cookie plate Old Olive instead of Cherry Cobbler, the dogs sweater is a little different, and I used two pictures on the wall instead of the one on the top card. This dog is so stinkin' cute!

Stamp Set: Ready for Christmas (144823 or Bundle 146056)
Paper:  Real Red (102482), Whisper White (100730), Garden Green (102584), Early Espresso
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (132708), Stampin' Blends (147475 $121.50)
Big Shot: Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies (144679 or Bundle 146056)

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to join us today. Hope you got some good ideas!

Happy Halloween!

Hello! Here are a couple more Halloween cards I made.

I love this card using the Bella & Friends stamp set because it looks like my dog, Lucy. I cut the witches hat out of one of the sheets of the Spooky Night DSP. The sentiment was stamped using the Spooky Cat stamp set.

These cats were punched out of the same DSP with the Cat Punch. Their hats were cut out by hand.

I hope you get all treats and no tricks today!

Christmas Tissue Box Cover

Hello! I had some time to stamp yesterday and came up with this tissue box cover.

All I did was take an old box apart and trace it on a piece of retired DSP. As you can see I used my Cookie-Cutter Christmas stamp set and the Cookie Cutter Builder punch to decorate it. The little treats the gingerbread people are holding were hand cut out of another piece of DSP.

Here's a side view. I decided to use another piece of the DSP to the ends just to add a little extra something to the box. I thought this would be a nice way to decorate my bathrooms for the season and then I can just toss them in need to store anything! I'll plan on making another one for my second bathroom, it has a Northwoods theme so I am thinking pine boughs and pinecones for that one.

Thanks for stopping by!
