Jolly Holly Shaker

What does Sunday bring for you?  For me, Sunday brings a bit of down time this week. I had a busy work week so it is nice to have a day off.  I do have a bit of work to do today, but hopefully it won't take too long. 

Meanwhile, I have a  fun shaker for you from the latest Whimsy Release

Yep, another fun slimline card.  :)  For this one, I started with some green cardstock and used the Slimline Card Builder Die for the exterior shape and the circles in the middle.  Once I had it cut, I used the Jolly Holly Stencil to create holly on the card with distress oxides.  I came back in and added a bit of extra color and detail.  I used a gel pen to add highlights.  Behind that, I added some acetate and some foam tape to make it into a shaker.  I put this holly confetti and some beads behind it and mounted it on white. Then I used the new Slimline Vertical Sentiments by embossing it on vellum using some WOW embossing powder and mounting it.  

I hope you like it!  Thanks for visiting!

Trinity Release

Happy Friday!  Today feels like a good day to have a new release doesn't it?!  I think so.  Welcome to the winter release for Trinity Stamps

I know you love the gnomes, and I feel lucky to be able to have fun gnome card to share with you.  I am featuring 5 new products:

Here's how I made this card.- I started by stamping and coloring my gnomes from images from the sets From Our Gnome to YoursComfort & JoyLet your Light Shine with Copics.  I used Ink on 3 Blackout Hybrid.  I used the Autumn Rainbow paper pad for some of the hats.  I added shadows to them with my Copics. I cut them all out and set them aside.  I used the new Slimline Series- Staggered Rectangles Die with this panel and some fun wintry DP.  I mounted the images on top using foam tape.  Finally, I cut the words out using the Sweet Holiday Wishes some sparkly red cardstock and mounted it. 

What do you think? Pretty cute right? 

Head to the shop for the new release.  Then join us on Instagram AND the Trinity Video Channel for your chance at two different prizes.

Oopsie- Dragon Christmas Cheer

Happy Monday Friends!  Today marks another Whimsy Stamps release and there are some super fun products to be had.  

Check out this cute and fun card!

Haha, it makes me giggle!  I love these dragons and the combo of elements. 

Here is how I made this one:
  • First, I stamped the image from the new Dragon Christmas Cheer set and then I colored it with my Copics (R39, R 35, R29, R14, Y13, Y15, YG25, YG67, YG11, YG17, YG06, G14). I cut it out and put it aside.  
  • I pulled out the new Tartan Paper pack and cut it using the Envelope Edger Die set.  I used the same die to cut some Red cardstock.  
  • I mounted those layers on some Kraft paper and stamped my sentiment along the bottom.  
  • Next, I die cut the Oops Word Die with some red cardstock and adhered it to the top section of the card.  
  • I came back in and added my cute dragon using some foam tape.
  • Finally, I added some red stars for good measure.  

All the new fun Whimsy Stamps are helping me build my humor filled holiday card collection. ;)

Hello friends, Happy Tuesday!  My dad was in town last weekend and we went to the pumpkin patch.  It was super soggy, but fun.  And we carved them too.  Check this out:

OK, now that you have seen all the fun, let me share today's card. 

Today's card is a fun Halloween slimline.  I used the brand new Slimline Boo's Stamp Set inside my Misti. Then I colored a few of them with Copics and added shadows to the others.  See the one on the far right with a  mask on? :)  Next, I cut the panel using the Slimline Modern Embossed Frame die. Then, I die the Hello from the Hello Boo-tiful die with purple sparkly foam paper, and a bit of black behind. I stamped the sentiment from the sent on a bit of black and embossed in white using Wow Embossing Powder.  I die cut that bit using the little banner from the 4 Bar die set and put it right on top of the hello.  Then I mounted it all on black cardstock. 

Unfortunately, I think this set is currently sold out, but it will be back in stock soon and you can get notified when it is available. :)

Entering this into Simon Says Monday- Spooky. 

Hope you enjoyed this and thanks for visiting!

Celebrate Winter

Hey there friends.  I have a fun wintery card for you today featuring some awesome products from Whimsy Stamps. 

I have to start by telling you blue is my fave color, so I am all about this color scheme. :)  

Here is how I made this one: 
I started by pulling out a pale blue bit of cardstock and cutting it to 4 X 5.25.  I used my Misti and stamped the Cosmic Half Tone Oval using various blue distress inks (Salty Ocean, Mermaid and Blueprint).  On top of that I used my Kinetic Curved Hills die with white to create the forefront.  I added a few shadows with my Copics.  Behind that I cut the trees from Tree Assortment Die in white.  Next, I stamped my fun snowman from the Frosty Wishes Stamp set and Colored with Copics (R37, R35, R14, RV 10, YR15, E33, E35, C7, C5, C3, C1, B32, B26, B24), then popped in on the front using foam tape. Finally, I used some sparkly white foam and various blue cardstocks to cut the Celebrate Word and Shadow die. 

This snowman makes me smile. :)

Gilded Holiday

Hi friends!  I am back today with the first of many holiday winter holiday cards for this year.  This card was pretty simple making because there is no stamping, all die cutting. 

This card was inspired by the new Gilded Holiday paper pack.  It is so pretty and I am humming Silver and Gold from Rudolph in my head.  

I made this one by cutting the DP into the standard A2 card size.  I mounted it on a white base.  Next, I die cut some mountains and the tree and cabin bits using the Mountain Majesty Die set.  I had a light orangy- gold paper that was perfect for the mountains matching the paper and the rest in white.  I wanted another layer of snow popped out with foam tape, so I used the Kinetic Curved Hills die set.  The next step was die cutting the sentiment in gold using the Celebrate Word Die.  Lastly, I added some black shiny heart embellishments. 

Here is one more view, you can see the shininess of the paper.  

It isn't my typical style of card, but I love the way it turned out.

HI friends!  I got my hands on a brand new stamp set the other day that I purchased from Sweet November Stamps.  It is sooooo cute!  I paired it with some fabulous paper from Pink Paislee. 

I made this by stamping the images on white Copic friendly cardstock.  I colored them with a large assortment of Copics. I stamped the wings on vellum and used a very light color to color them so they would be see through. Next, I trimmed my DP down to slimline card size and tacked it down on a white base.  Next, I took this Terra Cotta CS (Stampin' Up) and die cut it using the Trinity Slimline Frame and Fold die for the border.  I popped it up using foam tape.  I fussy cut my images and mounted them on the base with more foam tape.  Then I decided I wanted a sentiment so I cut a small bit of Razzleberry CS (SU!) and used Wow white powder to emboss the sentiment from the Thankful For You Stamp Set. 

The adorableness absolutely slays me!  I love these cuties.  I decided to color the leaves in green so they would stand out against the DP. 

Here are a few close ups of some of the characters.  Like featuring diversity in my fairwees.
