Quilted Trees

I have used the Christmas Quilt suite of products for this card.  It is quick and cute.  What a deal!  This is one of the cards that I used in my swap with my Monthly Card Club this past weekend.

The Quilt Builder Framelits Dies match so many of the stamps in the Christmas Quilt stamp set.  I used the triangle die to cut the trees from the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  I also cut the tree stand and the star using dies from the set.

I pulled the colors for my card from the designer paper , as usual!  I promise that is the easiest way in the world to get your perfect match of colors.  I would not have thought to put Pool Party and Real Red together.  But when you add the matching paper is really works.

I adore the sentiments in this stamp set as well.  They are very simple and sweet.  My sentiment is stamped in Pool Party, so it doesn’t show up as well in the photo as it does in person.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • The base of my card is Real Red cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and folded in half
  • The Pool Party layer is cut to 4 X 5 1/4
  • The Whisper White layer is cut 3 3/4 X 5
  • The Real Red under the DSP is 3 3/4 X 2
  • The DSP is 3 3/4 X 1 3/4

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will give this Suite of products a look.  They are so great together and I think we can use them year round.  There is always a need for a snuggly quilt!

Poodle Santa

I unintentionally have an Animal Santa theme going from yesterday’s card and today.  I love animals, so it is appropriate.  The card for today is also a little on the whimsical side.  My Poodle Santa is a picture hanging on the wall.

I hope you can see the humor in my Poodle Santa photo hanging on the wall!  It was not my original plan, but in playing with the DSP, this is what happened.

Other than laughing, there is not a lot to say about this card.  If you are an animal lover, I hope you can picture this hanging in your home during the holidays.  I sure can!

Santa Piggy

I have had this idea for a card in my head for several weeks.  Actually one of the reasons that I purchased the Santa’s Suit set was to make this card.  I needed Santa’s hat.  Hopefully you will not laugh at my card too much!  Or if you do, then laugh in a good way…

This Little Piggy, 143922

 

Isn’t he just adorable?  I could not resist making a Santa Pig for Christmas.  It took three stamp sets to get there, but I think it was worth the combinations.

My colors came from the different elements in the pig.  I used Pear Pizzaz for the grass and Real Red for the Santa Hat.  I was disapointed when the hat smeared a little when I added the Wink of Stella.  But since pigs tend to get a little dirty I thought it was appropriate.

TIP:  The pig stamp has a sentiment under the pig.  I used washi tape to cover the sentiment while i was inking the stamp.  Then I just pulled off the tape before stamping.  Presto! no sentiment.

I hope you at least had a smile this morning from my Santa Pig!  Thank you for visiting today.  I love to read your comments so please let me know what you think.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hug In a Mug

The card I designed for today is my first one with this super cute set from the Holiday Catalog called Hug In A Mug!  Who would not love a Hug In A Mug?  I adore that name.  The set seems to be a little bit of a sleeper set possibly due to the Coffee Cafe in the Annual and then the seasonal coffee in the Holiday Catalogs.  But this one is just really cute.  I hope you will give it a look.

This card is a CASE from one of the Make ‘n Takes we did at World Card Making Day.  I loved the mug of steaming cocoa with the sentiment.  I added the hearts to the Pool Party layer to go along with the sentiment also.  Because of the quilt and the sentiment, I believe this card could be used for so many occasions.  A hug and a quilt are just year round love!

I have paired the stamp set with the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  This quilt pattern just emphasizes the Hug!  At least that is what I think of when I see a hand quilted quilt.  Also it brings back wonderful memories of my childhood!

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

These are the unlikely trio of colors I used for this card.  I would have never added the Lemon Lime Twist to these other two.  I did pull all three colors from the DSP.  And since it works in the DSP, it must work here.   I thought it would make the sentiment POP.  I hope you agree…..otherwise you are probably thinking I have lost my mind !  LOL…

Remember that today is the last day for the World Card Making Day Sale!!  It is also the last day to sign up for the October Paper Pumpkin….remember that October and November are coordinating this year.  I cannot wait to see what they are!

A Special Snowflake

I have shown you very simple cards before.  But this one must take the cake!  One layer embossed and done….

Doesn’t this pretty much take the cake on simple and easy?  I just could not cover up that beautiful snowflake.  I wanted to add some ribbon, but there was no where to put it.  So a large Rhinestone in the center and we are finished. I could see making a lot of those for Christmas and being finished early.

Sometimes plain and easy is great.  I hope you will give that idea a chance.  Thank you for visiting today!  Have a great day!

Framed Candles

The extra Host Rewards set for October is the one I have used today.  The name is Merry Patterns.  I am sure you have seen it on  other blogs and Pinterest.  I must say that it is a WOW!  It is technically triple layer stamping, but it is the best Stampin’ Up! has ever had in that regard.  Check this out….

For a smaller 4 X 4 card the simplicity makes the candles really pop.  You could make several of these in a flash!

As you look as these super duper cute candles, you can see that some are in front and some behind.  The stamps are the same way.  You stamp the entire outline as one.  Then you have a stamp that are the behind ones (in blue) and then the front ones, and another for the candle color fill.  Oh my!  And being photopolymer, it is so super easy to line it up.  This is definitely a great set.

The colors I used are Smoky Slate Island Indigo and then the touch of Daffodil Delight.  I love blue and silver for Christmas.  Although I could see this in Fall colors as well.

I mentioned how easy it is to do the layers for the candles.  I stamped them on Shimmery White just to give it a little sparkle.  When I was finished layering the pieces to check out my idea, I thought it needed something else.  But instead of going with an embossed background or DSP for the background, I decided to add the touch of ribbon to accent the flames of the candles.  There isn’t really room to do the strip under the center piece.  So I thought back to some old ideas and came up with just looping on the corners like old photo corner holders.  (I’m showing my age there!!)

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I hope you like this card and will check out this set.  It can be yours FREE with a $300.00 party.  If you are interested please let me know.  I would be excited to help you.
