Fast and Frosty

Look how beautiful these cards are and they are so fast and easy to make! 

Start with Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Cut off 2 1/4" inches off of one of the photo sides that has the least amount of decoration - this will be used on the flap of your envelope.

The remainder of the paper should be 3 3/4" x 6" so you will want to cut 1" off of the 6" side.  You'll now have a piece of DSP that is 3 3/4" x 5".  

Whisper White Thick Card Stock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4" OR you can cut your cardstock 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Cardstock to Match DSP - I used Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Pretty Peacock in these three cards - 4" x 5 1/4"

Stamps:  Itty Bitty Christmas
Dies:  Stitched Rectangle Dies

Thank you for looking in today... Here comes another Monday!

Wicked Fun Card

How about a Wickedly Fun card for Halloween.  This is another card we made at Cozy Craft Retreat.

Start with a base card 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Then on the front of the card, you're going to cut off 2 1/8" from the top, so that you only have the bottom half of the front of the card.

Monster Bash Designer Series Paper - 2 3/4" x 4" - Die Cut with Wicked Dies (save all the little pieces and yes, the DSP will probably be in two main pieces also.)

Pumpkin Pie - 2 1/2" x 4" - emboss with Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder
Pumpkin Pie - 2 1/2" x 4" - stamp with sentiment and a spooky spider from Wonderfully Wicked

To re-assemble the top piece start by attaching the piece with liquid glue above "wicked", then without any adhesive, lay the cut out "wicked" where it would fit.  Then attach the bottom piece below the "wicked" with liquid glue.  (In case you haven't heard it before, Liquid Glue or "green glue" as many of us call it - coming in the Green Bottle", is my favorite form of adhesive.)

The cutting small strips of the Foam Adhesive Strips and placing them on the back side of "wicked", then carefully lower it into place.  You can use Dimensionals if you wish, but I recommend doubling them so it's nice and tall.  remember to piece of DSP that would be inside the "d" and "e" as well.  Though it looks like I lost my "e" insides. 

Attach your Pumpkin Pie cardstock along the bottom of the card, stamp your spider and using a ruler or piece of paper as a guide, draw a straight line.

Cut a piece of Basic Black 3/8" Scalloped Edge Ribbon - about 12 inches and wrap it around the other piece of Pumpkin Pie that has been embossed with the Stylish Scroll and tie a knot.  Cut out your picture of choice from the Monster Bash DSP and place it over the ribbon with Dimensionals.

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a Blessed Sunday!

Christmas Countdown to the Winning Swap Card

This wonderful card was created by Jennie Portonova from our weSTAMP Team.  Isn't this so clever?

She used a Hostess Set from the Holiday Catalog - Greatest Part of Christmas.  I love the look of the chalkboard with all the greatest parts of Christmas!

You can make this card too... but you would have to earn the stamp set by having a workshop or placing an order yourself or with friends.   

Gather some friends together and order some kits to do together.  For example, The Christmas Countdown Project Kit is a great project to do with friends.  Five friends, five kits - $30.00 each and you've earned the Greatest Part of Christmas (or any other items where you can spend your hostess rewards)!!  Add the Christmas Countdown Stamp Set for some added stamping to make your kit look even better!

Happy Friday!

Ten Cards No Stamping...

Actually we made more than ten cards, but I like the title better this way.  With the help of the Night Before Christmas Memories and More Card Pack and the Night Before Christmas Memories and More Cards and Envelopes, these cards come together so fast!

These next two cards, while they look identical, have just a little border of Whisper White.  I think it makes it pop up a bit more.

Needs some FAST and beautiful cards, then you need to check out the Night Before Christmas - but don't wait that long!   Click the links below to shop now.

Happy Hump Day!

I have a GREAT Excuse...

So, I've been missing for a couple of days posting, but I have a perfectly acceptable excuse!

Meet my Granddaughter - Lovelia Anne - born October 6, 2019 at 11:10 a.m.  She weighed 7 pounds and 1 ounce and was 21 1/4" long.  Oh, and she's beautiful!

 Here is why she's beautiful, her Mom, of course! 

She certainly has a good set of lungs, I heard them up close and personal, but it was a wonderful sound!

Look at this angel and according to Mom, her hair is red - at least the hair she came out with.  I'm so excited to watch her grow up into a wonderful young lady.

Welcome, Sweet Granddaughter!  Grandma is going to spoil you like crazy!
