I love it ....

I love it when you can take a card sketch, and just keep using it for all kinds of different cards.  We used this sketch in club to make a really cute Halloween card, and I figured why not use it for a really cute Christmas card too?????

This cute card sketch I originally found on Mary Fish's blog.  I just used the Christmas bingo bits stamp set for the 3 little windows and the Christmas Lane simply scrappin DSP with a little Lucky Limeade bow and viola.

I just love using Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade together for Christmas cards, they really look nice together.

Thanks for peeking in today.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Mr. Snowman

I saw this ADORABLE snowman card on Stampin Connection last year and LOVED it.  It was made by Doris Denman and this card is just tooo stinkin cute.

I'm trying to decide if we should make this cute little guy at my card buffet.....lots of details and glitter....and there will be people there that have never played with paper before.  It might be a bit much for first timers.....not too sure....But isn't he just too cute?
Again, like most cards with lots of detail, this card is so much cuter in person. 

Thanks for peeking in today.

Oh Christmas Tree....

eThis is one of the cute Christmas cards that will be offered at my Christmas buffet class. 
In this view you can see that the middle Christmas tree is 3 dimensional and pops off the page.
 I love how it uses two different embossing folders, and the pennant parade stamp set, and coordinating punch.  It is really much cuter in person.  I saw a card similar to this online somewhere, but can't remember who it was.  I just changed a few things and I LOVE this card.
I hope the ladies like it too. 

Thanks for peeking in today.
Have a great day.

happy Thanksgiving

I have been playing in my craft room and having soooo much fun this week. I don't think I have ever sent out Thanksgiving cards before....well, that is going to change this year. I love the French Foliage stamp set, but have never put it to ink yet, so that is the stamp set I choose to use this year. I also love the Gently Falling stamp set in the new Holiday mini, but I have been playing with that one. As you can see, I even made a matching envelope for the card.
And this is the inside. I'm going to list the things that I'm thankful for about the person that I'm sending this too, before I mail it to them.
Simple, but cute.
I have also been making Christmas cards for a Christmas card buffet that I am going to have in a couple of weeks. It has been fun creating and playing. I can't believe that we are almost in November already and thinking about Christmas again. Where does time go?????
Thanks for peeking in .
Have a wonderful day.

Octobers Club Projects

Wow, it seems like forever since I've blogged last. Needless to say, I have been a little distracted by that new little grandson of mine. I mean really, what would you rather do? Hold a newborn baby, or play with paper? I know they are both great choices, but the baby wins for me
Since I had club fast approaching I did have to put the baby down and get some crafting done. These are the 3 projects we made on Thursday night.
This one is a cute little box/note card. It holds Hershey nuggets on the one side, with a little note card on the other side. What a fun gift to give for ANY holiday or birthday celebration..
For this project I made it with two different front decorations. The options are limitless, and up to you and your imagination.
Here it is with the little note that is tucked inside, out so you can see the stamping on the bottom of it. Here it is with the front flap cut at an angle, with a little more decoration on the front with some extra leaves stamped and cut out and glued to the front. And the inside was stamped a little differently. The ladies just loved these little treats. I have to say that I first saw this cute little treat on Lisa Martz's blog and she sent me to splitcoaststampers for the directions. So, here is the link to get the directions.http:// if you would like to make some of these cute little treats too. This was one of the two cards we made as well. I got this adorable idea from Dawn Olfcheske's blog. She called it the peek a boo card. I think this would make such a cute card for a child's birthday or a Christmas card too. Again, the possiblities are endless. For the video tutorial to make this cute card, click on the DoStamping link on my sidebar. You should check out all her cute stuff, she's really talented.Then the last card we made, was a card I made at my upline's meeting in September.
This is what it looks like closed.....and when you open it up.....Isn't it cute? Again, we were talking about all the different ways you could use this design to make other cards.
I don't know if you can tell, but the smallest and the largest circles were ran through the Big Shot with the polka dot embossing folder.
I just love this stamp set Gently Falling that we used.
So, even though I haven't blogged for a while, I still have been playing with paper.
I need to get started on my Christmas card class that I am getting ready for soon too. It's just sooooooo hard to focus when I hear those sweet little newborn noises just calling for Grandmas's attention. I'm hearing them now.....oh my goodness.....gotta go!!!!
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a wonderful day.
