Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

I thought it would be fitting to just post an assortment of Christmas Cards that I have made this year.  I was pleased that I actually got to make and send out Christmas cards this year.  That was a feat within itself for me.  I have not been very good about sending out Christmas cards for the last couple of years.  I unfortunately did not get a chance to take very good pictures of all the cards we did make and send out.  We utilized different paper and supplies that I wanted to use up in order to make room for some of the great new stuff coming out in the new seasonal spring catalog as well as for sale-a-bration.  So I am just sharing the cards today with very little explanation of supplies or techniques.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this selection of Christmas cards and that you all have a Merry Christmas.

Owl Occasions Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

I am still trying to get my posts more regular.  I will eventually get this all figured out.  I do have lots that I want to share with you all.  I have been busy making cards so I have lots to share I just need to get the posts completed so I can share them with you all.  Stampin’ Up is also doing lots of great stuff and I am trying to keep that information updated as well so be sure and check out the sidebars of my blog site as well for the information on what promotions Stampin’ Up is running.

This card is a fun one.  I needed a birthday card for a girl who was turning 15.  I wanted to use bright colors and cute designs that would appeal to a teenager.  The Owl Occasions set from the Holiday Catalog is a very versatile set that can be used for people of all ages depending on your color choices.  I have several cards made with this set that you will be seeing in the near future.  I also used the Big Shot with the Apothecary Accents Framelits and my 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch to add to the card.  The ribbon is the 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in Midnight Muse.  My Color choices are from the 2012-2014 In Color colors.  I find that the in color colors are usually on the hipper side and I tend to use them more when designing for the younger crowd.

Here is my supply list for this project.  All items listed are from Stampin’ Up and include their item numbers.

Stamp Set: Owl Occasions Wood #128000 — Clear #128003 (Holiday Catalog only available until January 2, 2013)

Ink:  Midnight Muse Classic Stampin’ Pad #126869 and Primrose Petals Classic Stampin’ Pad #126858

Card Stock:  Primrose Petals #126851, Midnight Muse #126843, Patio Party DSP #126916

Tools/Accessories:   Apothecary Accents Framelits #127003, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine #113439, 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle #118874, 3/8″ Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals #104430, SNAIL Adhesive #104332, Sticky Strip #104294

I hope you enjoyed seeing this trendy birthday card.  I had fun working with these bright colors and fun paper designs.  I know that the 15 year old really enjoyed receiving this special one of a kind card made just for her.

Angel Christmas Card I’ve got the blues

Here I am trying to get my post done again in the evening.  It was a busy day at the house. We had the internet repairman come which took time but we have internet again at the house.  My daughter got her cast off so that was time spent at the Doctor’s office.  We are thankful her arm has healed well.  I also had to run to the grocery store.  I did get the card finished but not posted til now.

The card I made today is using the Rejoicing With You stamp set.  I used the angel and the verse from Psalms stamps.  My card stock colors are Midnight Muse, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White.  I started the card by stamping the angel using Versa Mark ink on the Midnight Muse.  I then used Silver Embossing powder to heat emboss the angel image on the Midnight Muse.  I then added a silver edge around the angel by thwacking Illuminate Ink around the edges.  Illuminate is a brand new watermark  ink in the Holiday Catalog.  I then used the Big Shot and the Top Note die to cut a top note out of Whisper White.  I wanted to add a little color so I thwacked the edges this time with Midnight Muse.  My card base is the Bashful Blue.  I then used a background stamp and stamped the card using the Illuminate watermark ink to just give the card front a little shimmer (I hope you can see it in the pictures).  Finally, I stamped my sentiment in Midnight Muse on Whisper White.  I finished it by rounding the corners and attaching it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the ribbon and tied the bow to finish it all off.

I wanted something different for this card so I made it a Z-fold card.  The top note forms part of the front and it unfolds as you open the card. The bow helps hold the card shut till your ready to open the card. I finished the inside of the card with more illuminate ink and my background stamp and another sentiment from the Rejoicing With You stamp set stamped in Midnight Muse.

I added some extra pictures so you could see the detail of this card.

Internet went down again so I will have to post supply list when it is working again.

I hope you enjoyed this Angel Christmas card in shades of blues and silvers. I will see you tomorrow.

Easy Events Merry Christmas Card

Sorry this is so late today.  I got behind and have not been able to get caught up and now my internet is down so I am forced to post from my phone.  I am not sure if I am ever going to get caught up and back to posting in the am or not.   The only thing I know is that I am going to keep posting no matter what.  I am enjoying designing and sharing my cards with you and a little of my life as well.  I just need to build some more customers so that I can have my passion help support my family.

Ok on to today’s card.  I received a shipment from Stampin’ Up with some of the Core’dinations Card Stock in Cherry Cobbler from the Holiday catalog and the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. I couldn’t wait to try these two things together. The Core’dinations Card Stock is essentially two toned paper with a lighter tone inside. To bring the two tones out I first embossed the paper using the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and then took my sanding block and sanded the top of the paper until I was happy with the look. When I showed the paper to my mom she said “it feels like velvet”. I then took my circle punch and punched a 2 1/2″ circle out of Gumball Green. I am using the easy events stamp set again and stamped the Merry Christmas image on Whisper White in Gumball Green. I colored the berries using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker. I decided to use my Blender Pen and my Gumball Green ink pad to get a lighter shade of green and have the outline of the leaves show through. I punched the design out using my 2 3/8″ scalloped circle punch. I attached the Whisper White piece to the Gumball Green circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then used some of the 3/8″ Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon to balance the card. I added a little ribbon knot as well. I used Gumball Green again for the card itself.

I hope you enjoyed this Christmas Card. See you tomorrow with more Christmas,new products and a new stamp set.

Vintage Vogue Class Preview

I was saddened by the retirement of one of my favorite stamp sets. This inspired me to offer a class using that stamp set before it is retired. I am still looking to do this class and would love to get a group together yet before the end of May and spend some time making these beautiful cards inspired by the Vintage Vogue stamp set by Stampin’ Up. 

The first card is very different from a traditional card it does not open but is more 3-D. The card stands up and gives a shadow box effect showing off the designs through the holes.

The next card is more traditional and elegant. The very delicate crocheted lace and vine stamp with tiny pearl accents make this card a lady’s card perfect for Mother’s Day sentiments.

The third card also use the vintage vogue set but also features Butterflies made using Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  This is a favorite of mine.  It also has pearl embellishments and a small ribbon bow at the top.

If you like these cards contact me for more information on how to attend a class or you could even host a private class with your friends.  For specifics on the cards and what was use to make them from the Stampin’ Up Catalog check out my Stampin’ Up Website projects page at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/jennyoneal/distPages/projectList.soa?easyTemplatePageType=1
