Christmas Berries

It's me again.

I am trying to get my craft table cleaned off, so I have a few posts for today.  I made this card last week and did not get it photographed until last night.  It is one of the first Christmas cards I have made.  The stamped image is one of my favorites.


I had fun 'coloring' this image.  So simple.  I used the Blender Pens to color the image and used the Scalloped Square from the Square Collection Framelits to make the scalloped border.  Here are the details:
Stamp set:  Simply Sketched - Hostess (retired)
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler (#119685), Baked Brown Sugar (#131296), Old Olive (#100702), Whisper White (#100730) and Season of Style (retired)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (#132708), Cherry Cobbler (#126966) and Old Olive (#126953)
Misc:  Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine (#135639), Square Collection Framelits (#130921), Blender Pens (#102845) and Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

I used the following sketch as a guide to make this card:  
 
It is from Atlantic Hearts Challenge.  This is last week's sketch.  I just did not get it photographed quickly enough to make the challenge.

Six-Sided Halloween

Hello Crafters,

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am going to VOTE early.  I love that we live in a country that we can exercise our civil liberties by voting.  Mid-term elections are as important as the Presidential elections.  If we don't speak up with our votes we risk having our voices muted.  I will get off my soap box now ... on to the crafty fun!

I am created another Halloween card.  I think this will be the last of the season for me.  This card was a challenge for me.  It is a ONE-layer card with tons of stamping.


I think that it came out okay.  This was the first time that I have played around with the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  It took three tries to get a good system going.  Here are the details:
Stamp set: Six-Sided Sampler (Wood #130953 or Clear Mount #130956, Teeny Tiny Wishes (Wood #128748 or Clear Mount #127802) and September 2014 Paper Pumpkin
Paper:  Whisper White (#100730)
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar (#131174), Hello Honey (#133643), Old Olive (#126953), Tangelo Twist (#133646) and Memento Tuxedo Black (#132708)
Misc:  Stamp-a-ma-jig (#101049)

This card is entered in the following challenge(s):
 
Just Us Girls #264

HB Gift Bag

Hello Crafty Friends,

Well, I am getting back on track after a bit of vacation.  Mom, Bev (my sister), Sharon (my 'adopted' sister) and I went to San Antonio for a short vacation.  After our four days of play Mom, Bev and I continued on to Houston to celebrate my Aunt Janice's 70th Birthday.  It was a surprise party and tons of fun.

While in Houston Mom, Bev and I played with September 2014 & October 2014 Paper Pumpkin sets.  You ask, "What is a Paper Pumpkin?"  Well, it is a box of escape that arrives in the mail from Stampin' Up! that gives you all the supplies except scissors and maybe adhesive to make several card or 3D projects.  You can check it out HERE and sign up!  There are several ways to purchase My Paper Pumpkin:
The prepaid subscriptions are great for Teacher gifts, a gift for you crafty friend or a Mother/Daughter day each month.

We combined the September 2014 and October 2014 to make the following gift bag for my aunt.  It was a quick and fun afternoon of playing with paper and ink.
The card in this pic was shown previously on this blog.  I did make a quick envelop for it from the September 2014 MPP kit.  Here are the rest of the details:

Stamp set:  September 2014 MPP - Seriously Amazing
Paper:  Hello Honey (#133678)
Ink:  Tangelo Twist (October 2014 MPP) and Mossy Meadow (#133645)
Misc:  Basic Black Baker's Twine, Orange Sequins, Orange Mini Clothespin and stickers (October 2014 MPP)

The stamping is crooked and smudged.  It was a fun collaborated project.

That is all for now.
Blessings and Happy Crafting,
Belinda

Pistachio Thanks!

Hello Crafters,

Hope you day is starting off with a beautiful view of the sun.  As the temps are getting lower (70's here) it is nice to get outside and soak up the sun.  My little fur-factories (cats) will surely love being outdoors and exploring.  I think that if they were human they would make a card like this to thank me for brightening their day ... well, maybe ... you never know what a cat is thinking!

This is a cheerful card.  I used All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack as the basis for this card.  All four prints are from the same stack.  Daffodil Delight and Mossy Meadow are in the prints.  I thought that this was a wonderful POP of color.  Here are the details.
Stamp set:  Yippee-Skippee! (Wood #131341 or Clear Mount #131344)
Paper:  Daffodil Delight (#119683), Whisper White (#100730) and All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack (#133703)
Ink:  Mossy Meadow (#133645)
Misc:  Circle Framelits (#130911) and Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)
