Happy Christmas Wishes!

Well hello there!
Are you all ready for Christmas?  Getting there?  In the spirit of things I have another Christmas Card to share with you.  I followed along with Case this Sketch number 300

If you would like to play along, here is the sketch...

..and I wanted to join the fun over at The Paper Players - they have a colour challenge this week!

Here is the card I created.  

Farmhouse Christmas anyone?!  Oh my gosh, I have been seeing little red pick-up trucks with Christmas trees in them ALL OVER THE PLACE!  I even bought some tea towels for my kitchen this year!  

SO, I could not resist using this adorable little stamp from the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle and I used the coordinating framelite to cut it out.  To colour the truck I used my Real Red,  Shaded Spruce, Basic Black and Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends.  I just love the dimension that they give an image.   

I popped it up on dimensionals while my greeting was directly on the stitched shaped oval.  I added the little Galvanized Clip to keep the farmhouse them going and finished it off with a little bow. 

I made six of these little beauties. 

Be sure to stop on over to Case this Sketch and The Paper Players and see all of the wonderful creation made with these challenges in mind.

Nothing Sweeter than Freshly Made Sketches!

Hello my stampin' friends,

I love participating in challenges!  How about you?  One of my favourite challenges, Freshly Made Sketches, is hosting design team call!  SO exciting!  AND they have another amazing sketch for us to play along with.
 Fun, right?

Here is my card to play along.  I just love making Christmas cards, in fact, that is how my  my card making adventure started.

To make this card, I chose to use my favourite bundle from the Holiday Catalogue...Nothing Sweeter!  It was love at first sight.

I used traditional Christmas cookie colours, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Whisper White and Early Espresso.  I absolutely LOVE this stitching that you can create or not create with these adorable little cookies.  I added some heat embossing to create the icing decorations on each.  

And finally, making multiples makes my heart happy.  I love seeing them all laid out ready to be delivered.  

 Be sure to stop on over to Freshly Made Sketches to see all of the wonderful creations made with this sketch.

Stamp, Ink Paper Challenge

Walking in a Winter Wonderland today here at Stampinkspired!
Honestly we had to have gotten 2 feet of snow in one night.  My kiddos are supper happy as there is no school today because of it!  (You would never know I just washed his coat yesterday, lol)

But I am sure you stopped by to see my latest card creation, so here it goes.....it is holiday card challenge time over at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  I love it, so had to join the fun.


Here is my holiday card to share with you...

 I love how this card turned out.  I used some Night of Navy cardstock to start things off. I added a Whisper White layer and then some really pretty DSP I have been hording for just the right snowflake dies.  Today is the perfect day to share a snowflake card!

I added the two largest snowflakes from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies that were available for a limited amount of time. I couldn't resist keeping them for my collection.  I added a Night of Navy banner with my sentiment heart embossed in white. 

And of course, multiple cards for Christmas!

Be sure to stop on over to Stamp, Ink, Paper to see all of the wonderful cards created.

Ring in the New Year with a Blog Hop

Hello my stampin' friends,

It is that time again....time for another blog hop!  I always love doing these hops and love seeing what everyone creates!  I hope you will hop all the way through.

This month's theme is Ring in the New Year!  I know it seems a bit early, but it is always great to plan ahead.  

The card I am going to share today is one that can be used for New Year's or for Christmas - I just love getting the most from my stamps.  

I used some of the beautiful Christmas Designer Series Paperfrom the Annual Catalogue called Under the Mistletoe.  That is how I determined the colours for my card - Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Shaded spruce.

I stamped my greeting from the retired stampset Joyful Season on the Stitched Shape Oval.  I added the falling sparkle in Old Olive.  I layered that on top of a Shadded Spruce Banner and a Cherry Cobbler square.

I finished it off with a bow and a snowflake charm. 

Here are the six cards I made.  I love making multiples of each card.

Hoping this provides with some new year inspiration.

Happy Stampin'

Hello my stampin' friends,

I have a very special card to share with you today. It is a part of Kylie's International Blog Highlights to show case cards that show our appreciation to one of Stampin'UP!'s founders Shelli Gardner.  This year is Stampin'UP!'s 30th anniversary!  SO amazing and definitely something to celebrate!

Here is my card...

I wanted to make an interactive card to celebrate and say thank you.  I combined the Barn Door Bundle and the Wood Words stampset to create this card.

I chose the colours with fall in mind - cajan craze, crumb cake and Crushed Curry.

Don't forget to decorate the inside of the card - it is always a nice surprise,

Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to stop on over to Kylie's blog to see all of the wonderful creations that were created as a thank you for Shelli and vote for your favourites!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

Happy November 1st and happy Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

So happy you joined me to day. It is the official start of Christmas card sharing season here at Stampinkspired.  I have large custom order of Christmas cards that I have been working on in addition to my card classes and I can't wait to start to share them with you!

The theme this month with my Blogging Freinds Blog Hop is Christmas!  Perfect timing!

Here is one of the cards I made with my last card class attendees.  We used the Signs of Santa Stampset to create 2 different cards.  Today I will share the first one.

OMGosh - don't you just love the images in this stampset!  This little North Pole sign is no exception! The colours in my card are Real Red, Balmy Blue and Whisper White. I coloured the sign using my Stampin' Blends Markers.  It is hard to see, but I added a little bit of Pool Party with my Stampin' Blend as well as Wink of Stella to add some colour and glitter to the snow.

I think this bundle is a must have for your Christmas crafts.  It will be a great addition to my Christmas stash.

Be to sure hop on through all of the blogs to see what all my friends have created for Christmas.

Happy Stamin'
