Collage of stamps

I used Sunburst Sayings, Number of Years, What I Love and Grateful Bunch stamp sets with the colors of Soft Suede, Crumb cake, Always Artichoke and Delightful Dijion to stamp images. I was inspired by a card from Linda at her site Stamping School.

Make a card base of soft suede of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4″ add 1 layer of crumb cake 5 1/4″ x 4″ . Stamp images on a piece of whisper white 5x 3 3/4″. Added Victorian ribbon and mounted flower on top added tag with dimensionals.

Hiding in the woods

Hiding In the WoodsLook at all the things that can be seen in the woods.

Take the birch emboss folder with the name sizzix and using a sponge put your ink to make the sky background.  I used marina mist, night of navy soft suede, daffodil yyellow nd a small dose of pumpkin pie in making my different backgrounds.  When that is done stamp an image on the folder itself next to the part that folds. Such as the elves, bicycle, houses or trees, stamped in memento black or for trees I used mossy meadow.  Now run thru your big shot. Add some glitter to trees and for snow on branches and ground.

I used the houses and trees out of the Cozy Christmas stamp, the elves from Christmas Cuties, the car from Good Guy Greetings, and the old bicycle from a old SU stamp called pedaling past.

The birch folder and the stamps are from the Holiday catalog. Check out my store using the tab at the top of the page for all the items to make these adorable cards!

Come get creative and have fun!

Christmas Cuties

Angel among usElf among trees How cute these little images are! These are my first tries at using this cute set. Love the joy it brings when seeing it.

The first  card has 3 layers on the basic card. A layer of tempting turq.  and then razzleberry and then a layer of whisper white. The white I sponged tempting turq. light layer all over, then on top 3/4 I added night of navy and a layer of razzleberry sponged all over. When finished flick water drops on it and let dry. Layer your little image on a mat place in center of card wrap ribbon with bow stamp your sentiment and you are done!

For the elf I used a card base of real red, took mossy meadow and ran it thru the new birch tree emboss folder added the white highlights with a gel pen wrapped my real red ribbon  around and attached to card. Took my elf and layered it on 2 layers to make it pop.

All the above is available in the store at the top of this page. Or go to Stampin Up demo location page and look for me in Medford, Oregon and it will take you to my page!
