Hearts Come Home

I LOVED making this card!!!
When I purchased the Bundle, I did think to myself "there is no way I'll ever use that" !
Well, when I saw a similar card on Pinterest, I knew I had to make it.



I CASE'd this card from one I saw on Pinterest made by Rachel Woollard.

I have changed it up a little bit from Rachels...my building line is a little different from hers, I took a set of trees out as I thought it was too crowded and I have also used a different sentiment.

I chose stars for the sky as well rather than a Santas sleigh.

I have however used the same designer paper for the background of the night sky.
I love how this card turned out and surprisingly, it wasn't all that difficult to put together.
You just have to make sure you keep lining everything up before you secure it down on the card.

Thankful For You - take 2

Here is the 2nd sample I created with the Painted Harvest Bundle while I was trying to come up with something for Customer Thank you Cards.

This one is similar to yesterdays......same same.....but different lol.

The background is stamped a little differently on this one and like yesterdays this one also did not make the cut. I like them both however they both lacked something and even when I look at them now, I STILL don't know what "it" is.....we are our own worst critics sometimes.


I will keep these in my card stash for when I need a thank you card last minute but at least I had the opportunity to play with the Painted Harvest Set and I really like it. 

Sometimes we see a Stamp Set in the catalogue and think  "hmmmmm...I'm not really sure I want that one".....well I was like this with this set..However I am so glad that I purchased it now. It makes a difference when you can sit and play with it.

Thankful

I am always ever so thankful to the wonderful people in my life that support me and what I do.
That means friends, family and of course my loyal customers.
So every month I like to make those that shop with me, a nice card to show my appreciation.

For this month, I also decided to give away the Painted Harvest Bundle to a lucky winner. Which led me to then make the thank you card with that set.

I sat and made a few samples before I decided on the final and this card was one I tried with the set before I actually realised there were a few more steps to stamping the flower.


I hadn't made anything with Calypso Coral for a while and it's a really lovely colour. 
Paired with whisper white and crumb cake, it make for a very soft card with the Painted Harvest set.

In anticipation of having to send out quite a few of these, I kept it simple.

This card didn't make the cut and was not the card I chose in the end. But that's ok.
I got to learn how to stamp the flower with heaps of dimension and now I have a few of these samples in my stash and on hand, ready to give someone last minute.
I will show you the second one tomorrow.

Merry Patterns

After making 3 cute cards with the Felt Embellishments, I had planned on stopping there and then moving on to my next projects.....however!

I wanted to make a few more cards using the Merry Patterns Hostess Only Stamp Set.
I still had my Stitched Felt Embellishments in front of me so at the last minute I decided to coordinate the two.


I love this stamp set......because its a two step set.
So the first step is to stamp the outline, usually in black ink and then the second step is the "fill in" or the colored part of the lettering.
It does require a bit of lining up but because its a polymer stamp set, its SUPER easy!

I've also grown quite fond of using Crumb Cake as a base color to start with for Christmas cards and then pairing it with a traditional Christmas color, it really makes the color pop.

Say it with Felt

Here is creation number 3 from the collection of quick and simple cards I made with the Felt Stitched Embellishments.

I can't believe that these weren't originally on my list and I had no intention of buying them!
I remember felt shapes as a kid, when i dabbled in arts and crafts at school. When I saw these in the catalogue, I was reminded of those and thought they would be cheap and tacky.
However, this is Stampin' Up! and they don't do cheap and tacky.
They are such beautiful quality and so well stitched...I think I have just talked myself into buying another packet! lol


This time I have used the 3rd shape...the Christmas tree.
In the pack you receive three different types
Holly, Stars and Trees.

These truly are perfect for whipping up christmas cards.

On this one, I have added some gold Washi to break up the green and a gold Metallic Star for the top of the tree.
