Let it Snow!

Christmas is fast approaching and what better way to spread Christmas Cheer than with a cute little snowman. This card is adorable and so easy to make, using the Let it Snow stamp set and the Frosted Foliage Bundle.  I wish I could take credit for the design but I cannot.  I don’t remember who came up with this design but I loved it so much I had to make one too.  I showcased this card in one of my classes and everyone had a blast making up this card.  How can you not smile when you see the happy snowman playing in the snow.

I love the colours of green and gold together and I cannot believe how easy this card was to make up. Everything on the card comes with the purchased bundle so nothing else is needed.

I made up this beautiful card as both a landscape and a portrait card and I cannot decide which one I love more. I used the Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the boughs and the Metallic ink pad to stamp the acorns. I stamped the sentiment on the front in Gold on one and Mossey Meadow on the other. It works so well with the gold edge mettalic ribbon. So what is your favourite, the portrait card or the landscape card.

World Card Making day

Did you know that World Card Making Day exists?

Well it does. It takes place every year, on the first Saturday of October. This special day encourages everyone in the whole wide world, to make a homemade card. I sure bet the card companies won’t like that!

Yesterday, I held a card making workshop to celebrate World Card Making Day. We got together to make 2 cards each of 5 different designs for a total of 10 cards to take home. With Christmas within sight, it also gives you a head start on your Christmas cards. I know a lot of people don’t send cards anymore which is a shame. Collecting your mail and receiving a special card from someone makes you smile and what better way to spread the smiles than to send a card.

People give one another cards to celebrate birthday celebrations, wedding ceremonies, accomplishments and much more, in addition to commiserate or support. But exactly how much does your sentiment mean, if it is simply purchased from a retail chain with little thought? Taking a bit of your time to make something sincere on your own, and show the recipient that you’ve really considered them means so much more to the recipient. It shows you care.

Yuletide Cheers

 

I love the Feels Like Frost suite. Between the stamps & Die Cuts, and the Designer Series Paper, they make card making easy.

Thank you Card

 

Hi everyone, it has been over a month since I have done any crafting due to travelling and some construction taking place.  I cannot believe the withdrawal I experienced during this time.  Crafting is such a stress reliever because you can forget about everything else going on in your life, for just a little while.

I strongly believe that thank you cards are important to show appreciation. I am overdue with some thank you cards so I made up this card as a thank you for an order placed to my business.

I cut the Highland Heather card stock to 5 1/2″ by 11″ and folded in half to make the card base.
I cut two Whisper White card stock at 5 1/4 x 4″
One for the inside and one for the front of the card.

Using the Highland Heather ink pad, I then stamped the Image from the “A little Lace” stamp set and then stamped the sentiment from the “Daisy Lane” stamp set for the front of the card

After adhering the front, I adhered the second Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card. I left this blank so I could write my own comments to the inside.

Voila, an elegant but simple thank you card

Ride the Wind Day

Ride the Wind Day is a carefree day to soar above the earth. You can catch a ride with the breeze, or float along slowly like a gentle, late summer cloud.

Summer will soon be over. Catching the drift of this day is easy. Just relax, and let the wind carry you away in whatever direction it is blowing. Leave your troubles and worries behind for a spell, as you waft in the air.

Here are some great ways to enjoy Ride the Wind Day :

  • Fly in an airplane
  • Fly a kite
  • Parachute
  • Hang glide
  • Take a motorcycle ride
  • Hope in a sailboat, and go for a ride
  • Just kick back and enjoy one of the last days of summer
