Let's Party

Fast card to make.  We made this a couple of months ago at card class.  Not my favorite colors but it made me do something outside my comfort zone.

I think the photo is pretty self explanatory :-)

Merry Christmas Pine Bough

Another FUN card to make.  Starting with a piece of green card stock 11" x4 1/4",  fold in half lengthwise.  Then, score the front section at 1 1/2".  Fold over and tear the edge towards you to give it a 'feathered' look.   Unfold again.  Then, center your Framelit on the front of the bottom section and cut out.

Using a 5" x 3 1/2" piece of light card stock, adhere it to a piece of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" brown card stock.  Center it in the bottom half of the card under the opening....and mark with a light pencil...the edge where you will be stamping.

Take the card back out and stamp the boughs and pinecones.

Put a very thin line of adhesive on each side of the inside of the bottom flap.  Adhere it to the back.  Add a piece of brown stitched ribbon to the top of the bottom half.

Then, stamp Merry Christmas at the top of the inside card.

Hope the directions make sense.  I can see using this idea for different occasions.

Happy Birthday horse card

This is pretty self explanatory card and I am sure you can recreate something like this just by looking at it.

This card, I think, could be used for either a male or female for their birthday and you can even change up the colors of card stock and designer paper.

Tuxedo Card

Let's see, a wedding, prom, special occasion....this card can be used for quite a few events.

It is relatively easy and quick to put together after you get your elements punched/cut.

Gray, black and white but you can change up the colors to fit the occasion.

Fall Happy Birthday

In October, we made this cute Fall card using the SU stamp set Wonderfall and the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.

Adding a little ribbon and a sentiment.......and you're good to go.

I love Fall......and I have a few more cards to share and then it's mostly Christmas after that.

Cute Scarecrow


We made this card back in October at card class.  It was so much fun to make.

Using the Top Note die, you create the scarecrows head.  Then, using the Top Note die, again, you create her hat and brim from designer paper.

Using a small oval punch, you cut it in half for the eyes, black circles for the pupils, and a triangular shape for the nose.

I had fun recreating this card for several people.  You can change it up and make the scarecrow a 'he' and give him/her different accents.

Hope you have fun doing this cute card!!

Birthday Wishes

Using the Natural Composition Specialty paper from SU, we did a Dutch fold card.  We added Crumb Cake taffeta Ribbon to each side of the card, tying a little bow on the right side.

Then we used the Delicate Doilies die cut out of Very Vanilla card stock, 2 3/8" scalloped circle punch and the 1 3/4" circle punch to make the center design.

Very quick and easy card, yet so elegant.
I love this Specialty paper.  The inside is just plain, so you can stamp on it.

Friendship card

This card uses the  coffee cup and steam stamps from the Scentsational Season set and Framelit Dies (Holiday Collection) from SU.

We used Marina Mist card stock for the base card.  We created a background on the card by stamping the steam stamp all over.

Then, we used a strip of designer paper and  punched a circle using the 2 1/2" circle punch out of Cherry Cobbler card stock and a scalloped circle punched out of the same designer paper.
We added the Cherry Cobbler sweater trim.

Quick card to send to a friend to tell them to share a 'cup of coffee' with you.

Rock n Roll Fall Card

This was one of the cards we made this month at card class.

The technique is called Rock N Roll.  To get this effect, first ink up your stamp with the lighter color and then, very carefully, just roll the edges of your stamp in the darker ink and stamp onto glossy card stock.

We used the Gently Falling stamp set from SU.

So I wanted to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING with this card!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day full of thanks!!!

Hugs,
Char
