Evergreen Class

WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!  I am sooooooo excited to have you all here!  Isn’t this new look WONDERFUL?  I absolutely LOVE IT!!!  And the really cool thing?  Julie (of Webics Designs) has designed 3 looks for me – one for Fall (GORGEOUS!!!) and coming soon – Winter followed by my Spring/Summer look!  I can’t wait!  Then Randy (my DH) found this cool blog template for me so…I am rocking!

To ‘kick things off’ I am going to share not only some fun cards (and a little 3D) using the Evergreen set, but also a quick and easy pdf that has ALL the instructions in there!  Now…please don’t think I’ll be doing this all the time – NOT!  These were my projects that I did for my upline’s meeting in September.  We were asked to pick a set and create 3 cards and 1 small 3D item.  Since I just {heart} this set, I couldn’t wait to use it for my mnts for her meeting.

Since I liked this sooooo much I thought I’d just hold off showing these until it was time to ‘unveil’ my new blog!  So TA-DA!!!!  New blog and fun Evergreen sampler set!

Want to see the individual pictures and download my instruction sheet?  I thought so!  Here you go…

Evergreen – A Sketch Challenge

There is such a wonderful sketch on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  I like when we try ‘something new’ and diagonals are definitely not something we have in our sketches very often!

Didn’t this turn out pretty?  I thought so too!  The base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I would LOVE to tell you the name of the dsp I used on this but I am writing this while I am away from home, I do not have my catalog or mini and I am tooooooo tired to look up the information.  However, it is NOT Snow Festival or the Festive paper pack.  It’s the one with the Red Flocked paper in there.  I’m SURE you can find it from THAT description!  LOL!!!  I layered an Early Espresso Ribbon Lace Strip under it and a champagne glitter strip about it.  I made a ‘bow’ (click here for my tutorial) using Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a Very Vanilla brad, added it to the diagonal panel then added this to the card front. I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade (with a little Early Espresso for the trunk) on Very Vanilla cardstock, that gold embossed the loopy Christmas tree on top of it.  This is layered onto Early Espresso then onto the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.  The greeting is from Petite Pairs and was stamped in Early Espresso.  The star was punched from the Champagne Glimmer paper using the little start punch from the Merry Mini punch set.
