Merry Everything

Hello! I wanted to use a vellum envelope on a card, so I made this one with the envelope punch board. I made the larger green tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, and slid it inside the envelope. The tag stamp is from the Merry Everything stamp set, and is punched out with the matching Note Tag punch. More of the Under The Tree designer papers for the backgrounds. Seriously loving these papers!!

Stampin' Up! is having an amazing sale starting Tuesday, November 25th. There are special bundles, items up to 50% off, and embossing folders for $5.00!!!! And I just placed an order yesterday!! LOL Guess I'll have to do some more shopping! ;)

Christmas Labels Card

Hello! Today I have a card that I've made using different layered labels. The front two are punches, and the bread tag label came from a SU! kit from last year that my upline Holly had sent me.

I like the layered look of all of them, and chose a small sentiment so they could really be seen. I wanted some silver embellishments, so I used the mini brads. I did color one rhinestone with a red alcohol marker, and put it on the green label.

I like this simple design, I think the pattern papers and label shapes add just enough. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Side Step Christmas Card

Hi there! Just a quick post today to share another card I made for a Splitcoast Stampers challenge. The challenge was to create a step card or steps.

I haven't made one of these for a few months, and am pleased how it turned out. The flower was made with punches, and I left some space at the bottom of the tag so I could sign it.

This will fit into a regular envelope, and is flat enough for mailing! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!!

Corals and Crumb Cake

I've been playing along with some challenges over on Splitcoaststampers. This card was made for a color challenge using the colors Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, and Crumb Cake. There is also a bonus to use the emboss resist technique.

The large circle I embossed the flowers with clear ep, then sponged on Calypso Coral ink. The Crumb Cake panel was dry embossed with the tiny triangles folder. I love the soft colors of this combo, and turned it into a pretty Birthday card.

I'm enjoying the challenges over there. Being a Stampin' Up! demo, I'm not allowed to enter other companies challenges, and I miss that. So this fills my void. And it doesn't matter what current or retired SU! products I use, the challenges are just for fun!!

Thank you for having a look today!

Christmas Ornaments Punch Art

I was inspired to make this card after seeing Alex's Chinese Lantern punch art. I thought that by punching them smaller, they would look like ornaments. I again used the new pretty Christmas papers for the ornaments.

For the greenery, I've used the branch stamp from the For All Things set. I just stamped over and over with two different greens until I thought is was full enough. Plus, this stamp image has a bow around the stems, so I wanted to cover that up.

The sentiment is clear embossed. Can't really tell in the photo. I went with a dark card base, so the front panel would really stand out.

I was surprised to get today off from work!! I ALWAYS work Monday's!! LOL So I am totally enjoying it!! :) Thanks so much for having a look!!
