Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing through the snow- Oh what fun this card was to make. Paper Trey Ink In the medow stamps and dies. I used antique gold to emboss with.

More Christmas Cards

Merry Christmas I stamped snowflakes on the back ground in stead of adding pattern paper the bird is a Tim Holtz die. Just add a button and a little twine and there you go. The is stamp out the same on all of the cards. I use shabby shutters distress ink to stamp and to color in I used other distress greens and rock candy distress stickles mix together. A Hugh thanks goes out to Sherry Carol from hero arts She showed us how to make this tree in Jenifer Mcguire's online classes. If you have never take one before they are fun. I can go at my on pace and not have to pack up my stuff and take it with me. Thanks for these wonderful classes Jenifer!

Oh Come all Ye Faithful I just Love the look of lace on cards and with pattern paper behind it makes it even pop.

Oh Holy Night the sentiment alone makes me want to sing Christmas carols. I added lace and twine at the bottom as to not take away from the beautiful tree.

Don't you just love the jingle bells. I really love the pink and blue together the banner cut using my slice and then I stamped seasons greeting and added two brads

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

SO here is another card using this wonderful tree and sentiment from Hero Arts. I love this one a lot. I used gems and pearls on the tree. I used blue twine and oops it got moved over a little I will have to move that back into place. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas is my favorite Christmas song sung only by Bing Crosby


 OK what can I say but I am sorry that I am so long in posting. I have some great cards to share all from Hero arts Christmas tree set. I fell in love with this stamp set and could not get enough so I have made a few to share. For the 1st card the star is a die cut from my slice as well as the reindeer. I stamp out the miracle of Christmas on  to vellum and added it to the deer. For the falling snow I used liquid applique and added glossy accents on top.

Birthday Slider Card

Ooooh I made my first slider card and wanted it to match up with the invitations that I had made in an earlier post since it was for the same little girl. She loved it and i was so tickled to see her enjoy her card. I used some of the same papers as well. I downloaded the font from for free it is such a great way to get fonts to match your card.

Just a little somthing

I thought it would be nice to send Abby's Teacher a card to say happy first day of school. I think we sometimes forget to stop and think of our children's teachers on the everyday spectrum of daily life. I know we all remember to give them a gift at Christmas as well as the end of the school year. So I just felt what a nice way to say Hi other than just sending an email. And why not it just means that I get to create another card.
Speaking of the card I used friendship jar summer From Paper trey ink
Paper is Echo Park Country drive I just love this paper. I used Colored Pencils to color in the flowers. I also did some machine stitching around the edge of the PP (pattern paper)

Birthday Invitations

I was asked to make up 15 Birthday Invitations for my daughters friend's birthday party. She was wanting an Asain them. The paper was creative imaginations and the stamps are from Inkadinado.

Abby's First Day of School

Our Little girl is growing up so fast She is in Second grade and her first day was wonderful she is going to a new school and has a new teacher... Her morning breakfast stacked pancakes with strawberrys
She is ready for the bus!

Kings Island

What a great and long summer it was. Even though it seemed to fly by. I was a little shaken by the Earth Quake and Hurrican that hit. It is hard to believe that we where at the Outter Banks NC eaither this summer and about a week after we got back is when everything started to happen first there where 3 shark attacks and a hurrican. I just thank GOD we had a safe holiday. 
The week before school started my friend Maria and My Husband and I took the 3 girls Her 2 and my one to kings island for the day. And when I say day I mean 9 hours worth of day. But wow what a great time they had. Abby surprised me by riding the racers not once but twice and she was a little scared of the first hill but after that she loved it.

Week4 Summer Card Camp- Thank you

This is the 1st is a series of 3 which I plan on making a full set of 10 for my envelope stationary set. for the measurements of the paper pieces please see the previous posts. Used the same 4 strips of paper for all 3 cards. Again I love the simple look of these. My Sister ask me to make her a set of 12 cards with her initial on them but very simple cards and I got hooked. I love to make the very basic simple as well as a  very intricate card. I have found when the time comes some papers will speak to me and say hey remember me why not combined me with the other paper and then it all falls into place. It is like that with color for me as well. I have always like adding different or at the time some thought odd color combos together before those colors would be popular together like teal and green. I have always had a eye for color and still do. It really shows in my quilts as well as my paper crafting. This is the one talent that I felt God gave me (and i do mean other than being a wife and mother )and I am proud of it.

Week 4 Summer Card Camp -Thinking of you

So this is the 2nd card in the series of three and again the paper is still from the original 4 strips that I cut 12 x 1 1/4, 12 x 1 and two at 12 x 3/4in.  Yet still very simple and sweet....

Week 4 Summer Card Camp. Sunshine and smiles

I really keep this card simple with only two stamps and scraps of paper this is actually the 3rd card in the set of three that I made at the same time. I only used three strips of paper to make all three cards the first strip was 12 x 1 1/4in, 12 x 1in and two at 12x 3/4 in. I used the same stamp from stamp in up. I love how sweet and simple these turned out. I think I am going to make an entire set of 10 for one of my box sets as a gift. But then I am loving these colors.

Summer Card Camp Week 4 and 4 more card to share

I am so loving this color combo and having so much fun with it.
I used my Slice Design card basic shapes it has great quilting shapes such as  hexagons which I used to cut 1 1/2in out of October afternoon, Cosmo cricket and jillibean soup paper. The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms Sweet Bee I made it very simple how ever I was going to add a butterfly and forgot go figure.... I still have 3 more card to post and share with you. So I will be back in a few to post those.....
