Merry Minis

On Monday I posted a card from my Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions set which used the Merry Minis set.  You all LOVE it so I thought I’d share another of the three here today.

Here is one of the other cards I made for my Merry Minis card set.  This is pretty basic just using the fun tree image from the Merry Mini set and I just LOVE the cute tree dsp from the Snow Festival set.  Once I finished this card and was looking at my finished card I thought to myself how CUTE this would have also been if I had used the ornament stamp image (and matching punch of course) and that cute ornament paper in the Snow Festival paper pack.  Now wouldn’t that be CUTE?  Well if you would like to do that and would like to know all the supplies and measurements for this card ( so you can recreate it), check out my post on Create with Connie and Mary.  There I have a downloadable file with all the information for this card including the measurements!  Yep…it’s all there.

Frosty Friends

Oh…it’s been awhile since I was able to do Mary Jo’s sketch challenge.  When I saw this sketch my first reaction was ‘oh my’ but I tweaked it a little and it really worked!

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler.  I took the blue/red print from the Festive Paper pack and added to the card front.  Next I took the chevron print (which is the backside of that paper), cut into a banner and added to the card base.  I added a little strip of Silver Glimmer.  I stamped the image using StazOn Jet Black on Watercolor paper, cut with the Label Framelit, colored with Cherry Cobbler and Bashful Blue (and a little Pink Pirouette) markers, sponged using Cherry Cobbler, added some Dazzling Details and Basic Rhinestones and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Black on Bashful Blue, cut into a banner, sponged in Bashful Blue and added to the card front using dimensionals and glue dots.

Set(s): Frosty Friends, Sweet Essentials
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Festive dsp paper pack, Silver Glimmer, Watercolor
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette

SHHHHH…don’t tell…but Create with Connie and Mary are at it again!  And this time…it’s ALL ABOUT Card “Create”tions!  Want to learn more?

Isn’t this just the CUTEST little set?  Well I thought so too when I bought it.  But then (and I don’t know if you do it but this does happen to me) I let it sit there and didn’t use it!  ARRRGH!!!  I HATE when I do that!  Have you ever done that?  Okay…be truthful!  LOL!!!

So when Connie and I decided to start Card “Create”tions and do an edition with just cards in there I know right away what I was going to do!  So here is ONE of the three cards I did in my set.

Would you like to see all three of my cards, learn about Card “Create”tions AND download my project sheet give the ALL the supplies and measurements (along with individual shots) for each cards?  I thought you might.  Well, that’s easy enough.  Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and you will see all the information about our new ‘mini subscription and get to see my other cards, download my project sheet AND sign up for our fun new subscription!

 

Starfruit Sunflowers

Today is another FABULOUS color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.  We just love color challenges and this one was FUN and perfect for sunflowers!

Aren’t these colors just GREAT?  I think so too!  I will have to tell you though…I made the whole card then realized that I had used Daffodil Delight instead of Summer Starfruit.  So I had to rip it apart and redo it with the right color!  LOL!!!  I HATE when that happens!

So now the base of the card is Summer Starfruit.  I took another piece of the Summer Starfruit and ran it through the woodgrain embossing folder then added to the card base.  I took a piece of dotted Gumbal and added a Chocolate Chip scallop edge underneath then add to the card front.  I did the long label from the Apothecary Accents Framelits in Very Vanilla, added some brown brads to each end and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I did the sunflowers with the largest flower from the Boho Blossom Punch, then cut between the petals, added a 1/2” Chocolate Chip circle in the middle and the middle flower in Gumball Green for the leaves.  I ran the Chocolate Chip circles through the Fancy Fan Folder for a little more dimension.  The flowers were added using dimensionals and I finished it off by adding pearls.  To do the greeting, we don’t have any ivory embossing powder so I embossed the greeting in clear on Very Vanilla then sponged over it in Chocolate Chip.  I cut it out using the Bitty Banners Framelit and attached using dimensionals.

Set(s): Create a Cupcake
Paper: Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Chocolate Chip, Incolor Designer Series paper pack
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip
Other: Apothecary Accents Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Scallop Edge Punch, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Boho Blossom Punch, 1/2” Circle Punch, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Neutral Brads, Clear Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Frosty Friends

Since this was on my old blog, just loading some of my favorites into my new blog.

Don’t these little snowmen just make you smile?  They do me!  Just soooooo cute!  And they were just PERFECT for the final Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition 2012.  The card base is Cherry Cobbler.  I took a piece of Whisper White and added some strips of dsp from the Be of Good Cheer paper pack.  I stamped the cute snowman line-up using StazOn Jet Black and did just minimal coloring using Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green and Soft Suede markers, added a Soft Suede Scallop Edge along the bottom and added this to the panel.  I wrapped a piece of Primrose Petal Stitched Satin Ribbon and added this to the card front.  I did the medium snowflake in Gumball Green, and the small snowflake in Primrose Pink, a 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler circle and then a Cherry Cobbler brad and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped merry, punched with the jewelry tag punch and added to the snowflake to finish it off.

Set(s): Frosty Friends, Pennant Parade
Paper: Watercolor Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Be of Good Cheer dsp
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green, Soft Suede

Scentsational Seasons

If you remember my card from Wednesday it has a similar ‘look and feel’ to it.  I actually made this one first and like it so much did another one!  The base of the card is Island Indigo.  I took a piece of Early Espresso and rounded the corners on the right side.  I round the corners on a piece of Bashful Blue and added to the Early Espresso panel.  I added the striped print from the Festival Prints pack, added an Early Espresso Scallop edge, added a piece of the Natural 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon.  I made a ‘bow’ (<a href=”https://stampercamper.com/cardpost/making_bows”>click here for my tutorial</a>) using the ribbon an Island Indigo Printed Brad, added to the panel then added the panel to the card front using dimensionals.  I punch a 2 1/2″ circle and added to the card using dimensionals.  The mug is Island Indigo and Early Espresso, the steam Early Espresso, cut out with the Holiday Collection Framelits then added using dimensionals.  I did the banner in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, cut with the Bitty Banner Framelit and added using dimensionals to finish it off.

A Little Christmas Favor

This turned out sooooo cute, that I thought I’d make a little tutorial for you!

For the ‘box’ portion of the favor, use the fancy favor die.  The ‘height’ of the finished box is 2 1/8″ just so you do not need to cut out the full box. I think I used a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock so I could get two of these from a piece of cardstock.

Next cut a piece of designer series paper 12″ x 3″.  Put one end through the window framelit that fits the size of the paper.  Run it through the Big Shot.  I only went through to catch the part that would cut then backed it back out.

Put your box together.

  

Now start by applying to the front of the box, wrapped around the bottom and up the back like in the pictures.

 Fold a print tag like this picture.

Add adhesive to the back like in this picture….make sure you DON’T put any on the top as you will slide the top of your dsp under the tag as your closure.

Set(s): Affection Collection
Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Snow Festival dsp, Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags
Ink: Gumball Green
Other: Fancy Favor XL Die, Hearts Framelits, Ribbon Lace Punch, Windows Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals
