Season's Greetings

Hi I'm back again! I'm really into using gold mirror card stock these days. My husband ordered a bunch of Avery Elle's "season's greetings" dies and he wanted me to make a sample for him using the die. It's a pretty font and I like that the words are all connected. 
I had a bunch of stamped embossed cards lying around so I decided to use it for the card base. I finally got to use the gold sheer shimmer spritz from Imagine Crafts. It is so pretty and a nice shade of gold. I sprayed it on the card base. You have to see it in real life.
The sheer sequins is from Pretty Pink Posh and the gold sequins is from Doodlebug Designs. The stitched frame is Mama Elephant.
Hope your weekend is going well! I am trying to recover from a bad sinus infection that I got earlier this week. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Purrfect together

Hi everyone!!! I thought I had posted this card but I guess I didn't. The stamp set is called "purrfect pair" by Mama Elephant. And I used the matching dies to cut the kitties out. I have never made a black card before but I wanted to use gold embossing powder for the sentiment and it just seemed to go well together. Reminds me of McKinley high school colors. Lol! I must say that the Mama Elephant clear stamps stamp very well. 
I forgot to take a photo of my Christmas card swap with the stamp club ladies so I had to take this one  that I had given to one of the ladies. Our theme was baby shaker cards. Everyone did such a great job on their shaker cards. I didn't get a chance to take photos of the cards. I used Dandelion Designs baby girl stamp set. Word sentiment is from Mama Elephant.
Can you see Olaf peeking out from behind the top of the card? It was a cute pillow box favor. I didn't even know what that character was but found out that it is real popular with the little kids. So clever, it was made with punches.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! I have so much to catch up on. Haven't made any Christmas cards yet or bought any Christmas presents. So much to do!
Have a great weekend!!!

Let's roll

Ok, it has been a month since I last posted. I got my hands on a new die set from MFT Dienamics - gift card grooves (I think that's the name) and made a gift card holder using one of the dies. There are 4 dies in the set and you can make your gift card holder 4 different ways.
I used Lawn Fawn's "let's roll" stamp set since I had extra pieces lying on my craft table. In fact, everything I used was scraps. Lol! I cut the holder at 3" x 12" and scored at 3 1/4" and 7 1/2". That's it. Very easy to make!
My husband has a new line in his store called Pretty Pink Posh and her sequins are the best I've seen so far. I used the clear 4mm on the stamped flowers in the background. If you click on the photo you can see it better. I also used clear wink of stella on the sushi.
Here's what one of the dies looks like.
I really haven't had much time lately to work on any projects. It's the busiest time of the year at work. I'm kind of dreading next week Friday because we have to go to our stores and take down Thanksgiving and put up New Years.
Well, thanks for checking in and staying with me here on the blog. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day!!!

Christmas sample cards

Playing catch up here. I have other cards that I haven't posted yet but I will soon. First up is a water globe shaker card. I used Taylored Expressions stamp and die to make the water globe. The stamp is called winter penguin from Lawn Fawn. The sequins is Doodlebug Designs.
This 2nd card is a side step card from Sizzix. I love how easy it is to use this die to cut the card. I tried cutting it out by hand before and could never get the cut parts even. The stamp is from Dandelion Designs called teeny weeny Christmas. And the words are from the new tag set from Sizzix.
This last project is a new die from Sizzix called notepad holder die by Brenda Walton. It is made for post-it notes and fits perfectly in it.
I used the winter penguin stamp from Lawn Fawn again. I actually have a bunch that I stamped because these are all the mistake ones. Lol! Do you have those too? I waste so much copic paper when I make mistakes.
Here's a side view so you can see the post-it note pad. The little snowflake stamp is so cute and comes with the penguin stamp.
Well, today was pretty much one of those stay at home days for me since its been raining from tropical storm Ana. At least it cooled down because it's been so hot and muggy!!!
Thanks for checking back here. I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog anymore. I've been posting more on Facebook and Instagram.
Have a great weekend!!!

Trick or treat favor bag

I colored this cute Lawn Fawn kitty couple weeks ago and had planned to make a card with it but ended up using it on this treat bag instead. Love this new treat bag die from Lawn Fawn. It is so easy to put together and make a bunch of them to pass out. Thinking about using it to take to my doctor's office for the office girls.
All the dies used on this treat bag are from Lawn Fawn.
Omg, today feels more like 95 than 90 degrees. Earlier this morning while I was working at Don Quijote's, I was actually freezing and had to wear a hoodie and my fingers were numb. I couldn't wait to get out of the store! Now I'm so hot that I want to go back to cool off again. Lol!
Have a great week!!!

Season's Tweetings

Is it just me feeling extra hot these days or is everyone else feeling it too? Plus the addition of hot flashes along with the heat. Ugh! 
I finally got my hands on this banner die from Lawn Fawn and been busy cutting extra banners. I decided to make a simple card, stamping and coloring the images. This birdie stamp set is so cute!
I normally use Imagine Craft's Versafine or Memento inks but I decided to use Ranger's Archival ink to stamp the brown tree branch. It's a really good ink to stamp and the images come out crystal clear.

The card base I used for this card is from Mama Elephant. My husband will be carrying these dies at his store soon. It should be here any day now.
Hope you're having a great week. I've been really enjoying my new part time job. I didn't think I would like it as much as I do but I don't have any stress while I am working. Plus I get to see people that I haven't seen in a long time.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Sweet Wishes

Yesterday I stamped and colored a bunch of Lawn Fawn images to make a tag but didn't finish it. Today I looked at it and changed my mind and went with a side step card. Its a Lori Whitlock die for Sizzix. Great die to use up your scraps.
Lately I've been busy putting up Halloween in my stores. I can't believe that the holidays are almost here in a couple months. The year has gone by so fast!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the Labor Day weekend holiday!!!
