CTS293 Hug A Snowflake




I love the background you can make with this Beautiful Blizzard set.
So when I saw this sketch, I knew what to do.
I stamped the background on white card stock in Bermuda Bay a few times
after stamping off to make it lighter.
I then stamped Bay snoflakes over it. I cut a 1 " by 4" strip
in Bermuda Bay card stock and heat embossed the sentiment 
in white emboss powder.  I cut the snowflake die 
from the Blizzard thinlits dies and colored the rhinestone 
with the Bermuda Bay dark Stampin Blends marker.
Adding it to the Bermuda bay base was the finishing touch.
Hope you can play along over at casethissketch.blogspot.com

Have ablessed day!

A Winter Woods Scene


I made a sweet winter scene for my last Christmas card for classes this week.
I stamped the background trees in Crumb Cake 
on a piece of Whisper White card stock.
I ran it through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder.
I cut the snow hill in White card stock with the Into The Woods dies.
I stamped the sentiment in Real Red.
I stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce.  The front one is full on ink and 
the second one behind is stamped off once to make lighter.
They are cut with the matching dies.
Hope you enjoy your Monday and thanks for stopping by!

A Christmas Greeting


The Alpine Adventures bundle is so much fun.
I enjoyed designing with this set for this month's fourth
Christmas card for classes.
I started with the white background ran through the big shot with
the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.
I layered it on a Cherry Cobbler base.
I added a piece of the Festive farmhouse DSP in a cute plaid design
to the side and a Gray Granite circle to the other side.
I layered the cherry sled on it and stamped the snow shoes 
in Early Espresso and the wreath in Mossy Meadow ink. 
All cut with the matching dies called Alpine Sports thinslits dies.
I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite on a small
white oval and finished it off with a Cherry twine bow on my wreath.

Hope you have a blessed Sunday ans thanks for stopping by!

A Brightly Shining Star


I am excited about the Gorgeous Grape card stock
making this third card for Christmas Classes this month so awesome!
I stamped the star from the Illuminated Christmas set in Grape
on the base. I then stamped the image in 
Memento Tuxedo Black on the thick White stitched square.
I used my Stampin Blends to color the wise men.
I also stamped the sentiment from the set in black
on the Smoky Slate banner.
I used the Stained Glass thinlits dies to make the frame 
in Smoky Slate card stock and added some bling with rhinestones.

I love the way this card turned out but I did get a bit of the idea
 for the layout from the holiday catty page 15.

Hope you have a bright and shiny weekend 
and thanks for stopping by!

A Dashing Deer


I love the Dashing Along DSP which was a promo
last month so I got lots for Christmas card classes this month
and used it on this second card for classes.
I layered it on a piece of Garden Green and the a Very Vanilla base
tying some ribbon around with a bow.
I added the two label dies in Very Vanilla and Garden Green
cut with the Stitched Seasons dies.
I stamped the deer from Dashing Deer in Cherry Cobbler and 
used a Early Espresso marker for the antlers.
It was cut with the matching die set called Detailed Deer.
I used a label die from Petals & More thinslits dies
for the sentiment stamped in Garden Green on Vanilla.

Hope you enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!

A Beautiful Blizzard


My first class card for Christmas card classes this month.
I love the Beautiful Blizzard bundle and so easy to use.
I stamped on the white background first in Balmy Blue about 
5 times with the larger background stamp in the set.
I then stamped over it in Blueberry Bushel ink with the snowflakes stamp.
I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel from Snowflake Sentiments set.
I then cut the white snowflakes with the Blizzard thinlits die.
I added some bling to them with rhinestones.
I layered the background on a piece of Blueberry Bushel card stock
and then a white card stock base. Simple but love all the snowflakes!

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

GDP159 Leaves Make Me Smile




I love the fall colors though not much of them are gonna be near 
me this fall in Florida!
But I can make them happen with the awesome leaves in stamp sets.
I used the baby wipe technique to create these falling leaves today.
I laid down a few baby wipes to make my "pad."
I dropped a about 5 drops of each color- Blackberry Bliss,
Old Olive, and Crushed Curry. 
I then used it lie an ink pad to stamp my big and small leaves.
I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry and then cut out a few
die cut leaves in same color.
I finished up the background with three Blackberry dots. 
I layered the white piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock
and then a Crushed Curry base.
Hope you can play along this week with the challenge
