December 12, 2019 Happy Birthday

I have a very dear friend who turned 90 this week.  Her son and daughter (Donna) gave her a very nice birthday party with a lovely lunch and a champagne toast.  I made her this card - (yes CASE'D from another dear friend Cheryl)and gave her a alcohol painted necklace that I had made in a jewelry class.  Love the white on white of this card.

December 11, 2019 Tic Tac Toe

This week our challenge over at The House that Stamps Built is one of my favorites - Tic Tac Toe.



 I chose diagonal Teddy Bears, not a standard shape card and vellum.  I have not made a flap box card in a really long time - so after searching for some dimensions I found one that works perfect for this image.  It folds up just like a box you would pack.   I used one of my favorite Teddy Bear Stamps Christmas Teddy 2007-I for the inside.  I used a piece of glitter pink/red polka dot glitter paper on the base, then a piece of white vellum with polka dots.  I colored The Christmas Teddy with my copics, using a piece of wash cloth and colorless blender refill and made the texture on the teddy.  I cut his scarf and hat out of the same DP I used on the base.  I fussy cut teddy and then I cut Merry  Christmas for my sentiment again out of the DP I had used for the scarf and hat.  A pretty sheer red box to hold the card shut and this card is ready to go out the door.

December 4, 2019 Designer Choice

This month over at The House that Stamps Built our Patti Gilliam, Rock Star designer, was the hostess for Designers Choice  and she chose "Decorate your Envelope.



I am still needing holiday/winter cards for this month so I went with a snowman/snowflake design - the snowman images for my card and the snowflake images for my envelope. This is the first time 2017-M Let It Snow Chorus Line. has seen ink - and isn't cute as can be???  Coloring the snowmen was so much fun and I tried to coordinate the colors with the snowflakes on my envelope.  For the envelope I used: 8916-E and 8917-I Snowflake Outline small and large and 3410-C Random snow.

I colored the snow people with copic markers - and then added the glitter paper just to give it some pop.  The envelope was also colored with Copic markers and some nuvo dots in the center.  I think this will get my recipients attention when he/she sees the envelope, anxious to open the card inside.  I need to get in full speed and finish up my holiday/winter cards and gifts.  I say this every December and I always make my own personal deadline but don't like to put stress on my self to do it that way.

November 27, 2019 Anything Goes

This final week of November over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is Anything Goes.  I had to choose between the last of my Thanksgiving cards or a Christmas card.  Well I went with 2 Thanksgiving cards.


Similar but different.  I used stamps:
     2826-H Let Us
     3213-G For the Beauty
     908-K Cornucopia

In both of the cards I used the same focal image of the cornucopia colored with markers, I used different sentiments, same DP, same brown CS, but slightly different layouts.  On the top card you will see I "tried" to use some gold filament string, I never can get it to look like the pictures but I guess there is no right or wrong.

I mailed out several Thanksgiving cards this year as I had 3 chemo buddies, plus family and a couple of close friends.  Now to put my fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving stamps up and start working on Christmas.

November 20, 2019 Photo Inspiration Challenge


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Photo Inspiration:



and here is my take on this pretty photo:

I wish I could say this was my idea but I must confess I saw it on Pintrest and really liked the idea.  Repeat Impressions I used were
     3306-I Falling Leaves 
     7702-W Tree Flip Set

I used a die to cut my leaf out of the center of my second layer which I choose a beautiful wine color card stock.  I colored the leaves individually in the falling leaves stamp - using markers and then stamped them inside the cutout.  I embossed my sentiment in an Egyptian Gold (which is a little difficult to see). 
Then I couple of pretty fall colored sequins scattered around the leaf. 

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of Photo Inspiration.  So many possibilities on this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps you will have two chances to win a $25 gift certificate towards stamps. ow it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Use a Stencil  -  and  as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

November 10, 2019 New Glasses


I made this card for great grand daughter.  She just got glasses and I thought she needed a boost of encouragement.  She is in 1st grade and well some kids can be really disrespectful.  So Grandma made her a fun card a with a note and some money so she can go buy herself a new book.  The better to see with since she has glasses. 
Eye chart and glasses are Stampabilities, Glasses are die cut, and looks beautiful on you is from SU.
