Anothers Card....

It has been awhile since I posted and I appoligize, life has been super crazy!!! Anyway, I did have a day where I made lots of cards....some where card kits that I have had FOREVER!!! and finally used and some where cute stamps and paper I wanted to use. This is the only one I have so far taken a is a beautiful snow flake stamp (New Fallen Snow), stamped with White Daisy Ink and Embossed with clear powder, I put a little bit of liquid glue on the snow flakes and added some prizma glitter. I used Cranberry card stock 6" x 12" folded in half. Decorated with CTMH clear sparkles. I have been doing many projects and I have lots to post. I am hoping to catch up soon. I hope all of you who lurk ( hehe) have a VERY Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Cards

(Ladies, I finally got these cards posted! Sorry it took me so long!)

"Snow" Card...I was given the idea when I received my card in the mail made by Karen Pederson, her card is the one with all the ribbon. My card is the one without. I love them both! It is a 6" x 6" card made with the White Daisy Cardstock, Aspen Level II Paper Packet, a little bit of Twilight card stock, Creme Brulee' Stamp pad, and the "All Decked Out" November Stamp of the Month Stamp set. To add a bit of sparkle, I smeared a bit of liquid glass along the face edge and sprinkled with Prisma Glitter (I did this on all my "Snow" Cards. The little "Snow Friend's" saying it from the "Snow Friend's" stamp set.

"Snow Family" Card.
6"x6" Card made with the White Daisy Cardstock and the November Stamp of the Month.."All Decked Out." The Hat, Ear Muff's, and Scarf's are made with the Creme Brulee' Card Stock, base color is Indian Corn Blue, Snow Flakes are second generation stamped for a lighter color and I also used the Twilight Marker for shading. I also used some ribbon from the soon to be retired Outdoor Denim Ribbon (in the Summer Catalog) The Merry Christmas is stamped with the Cranberry ink using the "Say it in Style" Stamp pad (SOTM from last year) I love this card! I am going to see if I can figure out how to fit 3 more snow people on it for my whole family. If I do, I'll post it.

Warm Wishes
4x6" card, White Daisy Card Stock for the base, Out Door Denim Card Stock w/White Daisy Ink,
Cranberry Card Sock for scarf, a piece of the Evensong card kit B & T Duo for the hat, again, the NSOTM - "All Decked Out" stamp set. This was one of the quicker cards :)

Kisses From Heaven/Christmas Cheer Cards:

This card idea is out of the Fall/Winter Catalog by the Aspen Paper set, this card is 4x12" card folded in 3rds. The ends are scored on a diagonal so when folded it creates a 4x4" square. Made with the Snowflake Kisses Stamp Set, White Daisy Cardstock, White Daisy Brads, Aspen Paper. The snow flakes are second generation for a lighter print and the cut out snowflake is embossed with gold powder. The blank center is meant for a family picture.

Christmas Cheer

Same idea as the Kisses from Heaven only using the EvenSong paper. The ornament is embossed with gold and I used a foam square to pop it up. I tied it with a bow from the Holiday Collection Ribbon set. Christmas Cheer, and other stamping came from the December Word Puzzle Stamp set (I LOVE the Word Puzzles!!!)

Cards using the EvenSong B & T Creative Basics Card kit paper, and the December Word Puzzle. The Merry and Bright Card is 3"x 4" card. I used ribbon from the Holiday Collection Ribbon set and a Garden Green brad. Ink is Cranberry. The 'Peace On Earth" card is a 4"x6" card. I used the December Word Puzzle, Colonial White ribbon, a small square of Colonial White Card Stock, free hand embossing with gold by the ribbon and for the star. Tree's are stamped with New England Ivy Stamp pad, Peace on Earth is stamped with Cranberry Stamp pad. I scalloped the edges with my corner rounder. If you would like to know how to to that please leave a comment with and email address. :)

Merry Christmas Y'all!

Recipe Box......

This was fun to make and fast!!! I used the 'Let's Get Together' paper and recipe card kit and coordinating ribbon. You can use whatever paper you would like. I modge podged everything to the can. I took about 1 hour. I am thinking Christmas gifts. I bought the box at Country Keepsakes in Salina..I believe they were $5.99 or $6.99, I am not sure but around that price.

Halloween Card/Mini album....

This is a fun mini album to give away or keep for yourself! We will be using several of the Halloween stamps and my favorite..the October word puzzle. This cute card is made with 1 sheet of
card stock and 1 piece of 6"x 12" cardstock for the middle album. Most of the decoration is stamped! I used the Enchanted paper. If you want to, you can use fall stamps instead and turn it into a "thankful" album, or a pumpkin patch theme! It is all yours! I think I put about 20 wallet sized pictures in the whole thing! I love mini albums!

Memory Box/ Notebook Paper.....LOVE THIS!!!

My Creations Memory Keeper and Album


Back (initals)

Sides (embossed)

I wondered forever about this BOX!! I wasn't sure I could tackle this. It is the My Creations Memory Keeper Box...covered with the Notebook Paper kit. I love this paper. Sometimes you never know how much you are going to like something until you actually use it...this was one of those moments. I had ordered the Memory Keeper Box kit off of Brandies Website after watching the CTMH TV mini movie about them. So...I ordered it. This is what I came up with. I used the Soul Mates Stamp set (came with kit), Playful Flourishes Stamp set, Chocolate Alphabet Small Stamp set, Hollyhock Card stock, Hollyhock and Black ink, Big Blooms flowers, gold and black embossing...(my newest fave!) I also started putting together a 6x6 My Creations Memory Showcase album. I am going to make a box for each one of my kids and put mementos from their childhood in them...example.. Jentrie (pictured) is now 7 (on tuesday). Less than 12 hours after her birth she was life flighted by ambulance to UVRMC in Provo where she lived for 10 days in NBICU. The first 7 days she was on a breathing monitor, where a machine breathed for her until her lungs were strong enough to breath on their own. I have saved many items from that, notes I had written, bows the nurses put in her hair...many memories...those will go in her box along with items I have saved up to now and I will continue to put things in this box until she becomes a mom, then I will give her, her is a work in progress. I am so tickled to do one for each child! Have so much stuff...I have a habit of saving everything! I am so bad that I almost (almost) saved the circumcision ring for my boys...Rhett made me throw them away! Lol! These are fun to make, and OH the memory's that pop in to mind while making them! Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!

Pictures of Jentrie in NB~ICU

1st time seeing her (3 days old). I am just now getting to where I can do these pictures, my 5 year Valerie has picture very similar, she was only there 7 days..... :) (20 months apart)
