Stocking Card

Not only can you assemble the stocking and fill it with goodies, you can make it into a card.  The stocking is just a tad too big for the embossing folder, but if you angle it right, nobody really knows you had a "problem". You'll notice the top corner on the inside of the card is still flat, but it's undetectable in the closed card.  When you run the Very Vanilla piece through the Big Shot, fold it and inch it slightly below the cut line, and it will keep the right shape.

Pines and Poinsettias Christmas

You know how sometimes you can't quite get the card you are working on to look quite the way you pictured it in your mind?  That was this card for me.  I was trying to create 3 cards for my Christmas stamp-a-stack that all had different styles.  I knew a number of my stampers like the Crumb Cake cardstock and also the natural look.  So I think with a little tweaking, I came up with something that fit the bill and went nicely with the blingy stocking and the other "cute" card we did.  And it turned out to be a favorite.

Thanksgiving Card Case

This is so similar to a card made by my friend, Cathy Roy, that I am calling a cased card.  But that's the beauty of working with such a talented group of stampers.  This was a card I received in a swap of mini catalog stamp sets.  It was so great as it was that I made only a small change so that I could do it with the supplies I had on hand.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Bleached Thanksgiving Card

A few weeks ago, I went to a Stampin' Up! regional event in Louisville. In addition to some great make-n-takes, I came home with some really great and mostly seasonal swaps. I didn't get this card, but I remember seeing one similar to this. I really liked the different colors on the leaves, and with the help of fellow demonstrators, we decided the original was bleached first. Kind of a scary idea, but it's worth it to create this card. Stamp you stamp onto a bleach soaked paper towel like you would a stamp pad. Then stamp directly onto your paper. This card was done with Early Espresso so the bleached area turned kind of yellowish. (Different colors of cardstock bleach differently). So that was a perfect base color for fall leaves. I just took my Stampin' Pastels and rubbed color onto the bleached area once it dried. It was interesting to see the different looks the ladies in stamp club created just by choosing different pastel colors. We stamped over the top with Early Espresso ink to finish it off.

I cleaned my stamps as soon as everyone was done with the bleach first with water and then with Stampin' Mist.   Here's another type of bleach technique we did in stamp club a while ago.

Blinged Out Stocking

Here's one of the cards we did at a recent stamp-a-stack.  The new stocking builder punch and the Stitched Stocking stamp set sure make cute cards.  This one is rather simple, but I thought the glimmer paper and rhinestone added more than enough bling so no need to embellish more.

Holiday Door

This little card covers a number of techniques.  The wreath was made using Poppin' Pastels technique on that great fall wreath stamp in the mini catalog hostess set, Warmest of Wishes.  A little sponging on the 4 panels gave the door some texture and the little bow is a fork bow.

Trick or Treat

Have you had enough Halloween candy yet?  I think I might have had a record number of trick or treaters last night, and the kids at school were full of trick or treating stories today!

We made this last month at club, and those ladies had the patience to make a pattern with their M & Ms.  As you can see, that wasn't what I was going for. 

These fun little cello bags are great for a small but unique treat.  Just think of the possibilities for Christmas!
