Peace in Earth

Pin It
Hi everyone,

The weeks just seem to be flying by and keeping me busy. This week over at the neighbor hood of 613 Ave our sponsor is Rick St Dennis. The optional theme is to use the word Peace on our card. I have used this cute angel stamp and colored her with copic markers. E00,000,21,35,37, Y21 R20,22,24, BG10,11,13 N0. I assed a lot of glitter on her wings. I am still trying to figure out how to make the glitter show up on my cards. She was printed onto neenah cs then I fussy cut around her. The base card is neenah. I then used a DCWV DSP stack. I distressed around the edges with SU not quite navy and then added a few clouds. The ribbon is also from SU bashful blue. The banner is from the same paper stack with red distressing around the edges. I cut the wedge our with my scissors. The sentiment is from a JustRite stamp set called Noel Christmas Ornaments. I used the same red as the banner on the inside of the card and added a MS lattace border. 

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. Happy creating!

Matchbook Gift Card Holder

Pin It
Hi everyone.

Its Carol here from and I am a guest designer at She's a Sassy Lady  blog this week. Thanks for having me join you this week Sheila.

I am in need of 2 gift cards for a couple of friends. One is turning 70 and the other 60. It always seems to be a bit more difficult to make men cards. I checked out you tube and came across this really cute gift card holder using the SU envelope punch board. Here is the link to her you-tube video. 
I have the we are memory keepers envelope board and it is the same as the SU. I followed the instructions in the video and decorated it more manly. I used colorbox for the card base. The DSP is from Recollections fall stack that was on sale at Micheal's for $5. 87. It has a lot of designs that I thought would be great for the men in our lives.

 The White piece for the image and the inside are SU white. I wanted vanilla but got it together and realized it wasn't vanilla. It looks fine so the other one will have the vanilla. The stamp set is Autumn Days by SU. I find it a great for men designs. It works great for envelopes too.  The happy birthday is also from SU. The ink used is more mustard, mostly grey and suede. old olive and artichoke markers. I did faux stitching around the image and layered it with the left over from the card base. I then added 4 brads to the image. I hope you like it and have learned something new. 

Thanks for stopping by, happy creating!

Holiday Cheer

Pin It
Hi everyone,

It time for another challenge over at the neighbor hood of 613 Ave Create. Our sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis. He has some super cute Christmas images and I choose to use this snowman. The base card is neenah cs and I embossed it with the cuttlebug snowflake folder. I then used some faux stitching using a sukura aqua glitter pen. The image was printed onto neenah cs and colored with copic markers. N2,4,6,8, B12,14,E37,35,Y13,15, R22,24. The red rose and the leaves were made using the flower blossoms from spellbinders and sprinkled with glitter. SU red and green cs. The corner edges were made with the MS mold but I used a soft clay and colored it with copic YG63 and sprinkled with glitter, I am not too fond of the MS soft molding clay or foam that she sells so used another. I found that when her clay is molded it seems to crack when taken out of the mold. The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets JustRite stamps called Noel Christmas Ornaments. I stamped it with black versafine ink pad. The red ribbon is from my stash.

Thank you all for stopping by, happy creating!
