FMS413 Rest & Relax




Fun sketch over at freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com 
this week and I had to play with a new bundle in the 2020 mini catalog.
I got my Christmas cards and projects finished so I could play 
with my fav suite called Tropical Oasis.
I did not use any of the designer paper by the same name yet.
I did use the Coastal Weave emboss folder with the Old Olive panel of 
card stock and it will be anew fav!
I added it to the white base. Then, I cut more white card stock
to stamp the background in Daffodil Delight with the Artisan Textures set.
I stamped the trees from Timeless Tropical set in Soft Swede for the 
trunks and Pear Pizzazz with some Old Olive sponged on before stamping.
I stamped the flower in Crumb Cake ink and colored it with 
the Stampin Blends markers in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral.
I cut these plus the leaves in Old Olive card stock from the matching dies 
called In The Tropics dies. I added a rhinestone in the center of the flower.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment-love this one- in Soft Suede ink.
It turned out cute and worked great with the sketch!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!

Plaid Snow Globe Duo




Yesterday I showed the cards I cased from Cindy Schuster over at 
nutmegcreations.blogspot.com  (can see her cards here)
I decided I had to do them in plaid...why?  I love plaid and 
I still have lots of this designer paper called Wrapped In Plaid!
Funny, I looped the ribbon in the green card but gave up in the next one.
I really am not good at lopping it!
Here I used the Snow Globe Scenes dies again for the animals in gold
foil and the trees in shimmer white card stock. 
I cut the globes in vellum. I added some retired sequin to the globes.
I used a sentiment from Greatest Part Of Christmas on the deer card
stamped in Early Espresso ink on white shimmer and cut with
the Lakeside dies label. On the polar bears, I used a sentiment 
from So Many Stars. I tried looping the 
gold ribbon from the Chrsitmastime is Here suite on the deer 
card behind the sentiment label.
I used a Shaded Spruce base and a Night of Navy base for these cards.

Hope you are inspired to finish up your Christmas cards/projects!
Have a wonderful Black Friday!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I just had to case Cindy Schuster's at nutmegcreations.blogspot.com 
great snow globe cards! I just wish I was better at looping that ribbon behind! Ha!
You can see Cindy's cards here.
I have been wanting to play more with this Still Scenes bundle. 
I used the Seaside Spray card stock for bases.
I added the same print from Feels Like Frost DSP. 
I cut the globe in vellum and added to background. 
I cut the pieces from the Snow globe dies and added the globe.
Some I added the sequin in white snowflakes or silver. 
The churches are cut in silver foil and the animals in 
Early Espresso card stock and the trees in shimmer white.
I also cut the sentiment labels in shimmer white from 
Lakeside dies. I stamped the sentiments in Early Espresso ink
from So Many Stars (with the deer), and Greatest Part Of Christmas
host set. I finished off with some Seaside Spray metallic ribbon
looped behind the sentiments. 
Hope you enjoy your holiday

Come to Gather suite around. I stamped the flowers in Memento 
Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with the Stampin Blends markers
in Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow. I cut them out with matching dies.

Since I already had out the Brightly Gleaming suite,
I decided to make my fabfridaystampinchallenge.blogspot.com 
card with this awesome suite.
I started with the Pretty Peacock base and added the ornament print 
of the Brightly Gleaming DSP. I wrapped the Merry Christmas ribbon around
and added the strip of Peacock card stock.

design I stamped in VersaMark ink from Christmas Gleaming set. 
I heated embossed in copper also the holly on Old Olive
 in copper and hand snipped it out.
 I colored in the berries with my Stampin Blends Cherry Cobbler marker. 
The copper was not behaving for me to get a great shot without a glare. 
But it turned out so cute!

Christmas Snow Globe


Love the till Scenes bundle probably because I do 
love snow globes!  This is the first card for November 
Christmas card classes. I could have used several cool 
dies in the globe but wanted my guest to color a little
and use the lovely house/cabin.
I used Real Red, Mossy Meadow, and Soft Suede
Stampin Blends markers for coloring.
I stamped the cabin in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
on white card stock and cut it with the matching dies
called Snow Globe Scenes. I stamped the globe in 
Smoky Slate on white and cut it with the matching die
then popped my house/cabin up. 
I cut the solid and the detailed base in Champagne foil.
I stamped the sentiment from the set in Real Red on white card stock
and cut it with the Stitched Rectangle die.
I layered these on the piece of vellum and then on a piece 
of Real Red embossed with the Stylish Scroll folder.
I added to another piece of white and a Mossy Meadow base.

Thanks for stopping by today and 
have a wonderful day!

Celebrate Snowflakes


I designed this card for classes coming up but then decided to go another 
route as I was not feeling this one for my class. 
But it was fun to make as I cut the shimmer white card stock
and then spritzed the paper with a combo of rubbing alcohol and 4 drops
of Balmy Blue re-inker. The alcohol helps to to dry fast. 
I then stamped the dots stamp from Peace Boughs in Balmy Blue ink
over it for more texture.
I cut 2 sets of the Balmy Blue snowflakes from Christmas Layers dies
and 4 Night of Navy snowflakes for a little more color.
After I popped them on the background I layered it on a piece of 
thick Whisper White card stock for the base.
I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas set in Night of Navy ink 
on the white strip and pooped it up over the snowflakes. 
I finished it off with the metallic silver pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a 
wonderful week!
