For Dad

I'm putting together 100 card kits for a workshop this weekend. I've got lots of people joining me to put them together, but I wanted to have ten different layouts for the cards. By the time I got to my last kit, I was out of layout ideas. Because all of the cards will be sent to Operation Write Home, I decided to use one of their sketches. I also decided this last card should be a Father's Day card.

Stamp - Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla
DPS - Sweater Weather
Ink - Chocolate Chip

Serene Medley

I've been working with a lot of winter scenes and needed to make a switch. Don't worry, I will be making more winter scenes. For now, though, I thought I would try something a little different. I really like the way it turned out.
Stamps - Serene Silhouettes, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock - Basic Black, Very Vanilla
DSP - Modern Medley
Ink - Basic Black
Punches - Modern Label, Word Window
Jewels - Pearls
Embossing Powder - Clear

I have discovered that, because the Basic Black ink tends to take a bit longer to dry, if I add clear embossing powder I no longer smudge the ink. Since I started doing this, I have cut my smudging down to nothing!

Antique Poinsettias

I got to mix a little new with some old. New stamp set and embossing folder, with an older (not retired) stamp set and embellishments.

Supplies: Stamps - Watercolor Winter (new) and Teeny Tiny Wishes (old); Paper - Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla; Ink - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Real Red; Embellishments - Woodgrain embossing folder, Antique brad and Pearls (colored with Stampin' Write markers, and Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin ribbon (ret.).

I tend to use traditional Christmas colors. What colors do you use?

Too early for Christmas?

I've begun working on designs for Christmas cards.

Peppermint Cocoa
Supplies: Stamps - Scentsational Season; Framelit - Window Frame; Paper Piercing - Window Frame; Paper - Garden Green and Frostwood Lodge DSP (ret.) on Whisper White; Eyelet board punch, Rhinestone jewel

Hot Christmas Cocoa, with just a little bling on this one. I was inspired by another Stampin' Up! demo (Kim Nolan).

Supplies: Stamps - Scentsational Season and Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper - Cherry Cobbler (3" x 3-1/4"), Wild Wasabi (3-1/4" x 4-1/4"), Very Vanilla (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and 2-1/2" x 2-3/4"), and Holly Berry Bouquet (ret.) (2-1/4" x 4-1/4"); Rhinestone jewel, paper piercing, corner punch and Eyelet Boarder punch.

I used the Triple Time Technique to create this card.

Supplies: Ink - Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple; Stamps - Watercolor Wonder and Christmas Lodge (retired) for sentiment; Paper - Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple; Gumball Green Satin Stitched ribbon and 3/6" Metallic brads.

Here is one that is quick and easy.

Supplies: Ink - Early Espresso and Always Artichoke; Paper - 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Very Vanilla (folded in half - base) and Scallop Trim punched, and 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" for the Watercolor Winter stamp; Always Artichoke 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"; Cherry Cobbler 2-3/4" x 5-1/2" and Scallop Trim punched on both long sides, and 3/4" x 5-1/2" (used to line the inside right edge of the card to show under the punched Very Vanilla); Natural Composition DSP 2" x 5-1/2";approximately 6" of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon, plus enough for a bow. Distress the edges of the small Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke and Natural Composition pieces.
