Christmas Cheer!

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend?? 
Mine??? Not Long Enough!! LOL

Last week I worked on more Christmas Cards...
WHY? I don't know... I just like making them I guess...
I'm already ahead for next year so that's a plus! :)

I used a Card Kit from Photoplay to make this one
I don't use kits much but thought it would be
fun to do for a change... I got the kit at a local
scrapbook store when I went to visit my sister last month.

AS per usual... I didn't follow the kit exactly on all my cards...
Like this one - I used the same layout it called for...
But I added some beautiful Snowflake Dies
and that ADORABLE Reindeer stamp which I
got from my wonderful crafty friend 

Super Simple & Cute --

*** Products Used ***

Cardstock - Neenah Smooth White, Stampin' Up,
Koh-i-noor Bristol Smooth, White Fun Foam
Designer Paper & Sentiment Sticker - PhotoPlay Kit ( Here comes Santa)
Reindeer Image - Mama Elephant 
Stampin' Blends Markers, White Glaze Pen, Clear Wink of Stella
Stitched Rectangle Frame Die - My Creative Time
Snowflake Dies - SSS, my stash

Have a Fabulous Day!

Happy BEE day!

Hello & Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
The week is half over and I'm already
looking forward to the weekend!

I've got another quick post for ya today!
I made this sweet card for another Teacher
at school. I don't think every Birthday card
needs to say Happy Birthday on the front. 
Am I right? :)

I made this card about 2 weekends ago and had a blast
creating it in my Silhouette Program -

I used all the Digital Elements from the
Bee Happy Digital Paper collection from (Down this Road)
It looks so cool all watercolored

I used a Stitched Rectangle Frame Die from My Creative Time
and a Stitched Scallop Frame Die from Die Cuttin Divas

The Flower design was die cut out on my cameo and 
popped up with Dimension. I added some Clear Wink of Stella
to the flowers & Leaves -

The Sentiment was stamped from a Simon Says Stamp
called (Circle Friends)

Other Products used -Misti, Neenah Solar
White Cardstock for the card base,
White Fun Foam, Bazzill White Cardstock for Printing on my
Canon Printer, Cameo for the Die Cuts,
Acrylic Sealer Spray to protect the ink jet coloring.

Pretty & Rare...

Hello & Happy Tuesday Crafty Peeps!
I've got a million and one things going on
so I'll make this post short & sweet!

This is one of those quick CAS cards!
I actually had several pieces ready to go, so my card
was super quick to put together!

I made the background awhile back with some Alcohol Inks 
The Unicorn image is from Pink & Main (Colored awhile ago) with
some Spectrum Noir pens and a clear Wink of Stella pen

The Sweet Sentiment is from Jaded Blossom (Unicorns & Glitter)
The Stitched Rectangle Frame Die & Daisy Frame Die are from My Creative Time
I just cut the daisy flower off of the frame

I attached the white card front to a white piece of Fun Foam then
adhered it to a Purple A2 size Card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2)

Cardstock - Yupo, Neenah Solar White, Stampin' Up, Spectrum Noir Ultra

I'm also entering the following challenges -

Christmas Angel

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
YAY! It's the weekend yet again!
I'll make this a short post so you can
get on with your Weekend plans!

We all know it's November... which
means Thanksgiving is right around the corner
and so is Christmas! EEK! I'm sure some of you
probably haven't even started your Christmas cards yet!

Well... I'm trying to encourage you to get started
so here's an Elegant and yet quick Christmas card -

I used some beautiful Washi Tape for my design and a Gorgeous Angel die
from Gina Marie Designs - The Angel die was cut out 3x's for added 
dimension - I die cut a Vellum circle to put behind the Angel
so she wouldn't blend too much into the background -
My stitched Rectangle Frame is from My Creative Time
and it's all popped up on a piece of Fun Foam

Before anyone asks - I use Stick It Adhesive for my layering of the Angel -
I just add the stick it to a piece of white cardstock - then cut it down some
so it could fit into my Gemini Jr. - Saving the extra adhesive cardstock
for another time/project - :)

Here's the inside all done and ready to go!
I added a strip of the red glittered Washi tape and stamped
my sentiment with some Momento Tuxedo Black Ink in my Misti
The Sentiment is from My Craft Spot (No longer in Business)

Let me know in the comments if you started your Christmas cards already
OR If you're thinking about it but haven't started OR if You are
all done and ready to go like I am! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome Halloween!

Hello  & Happy HALLOWEEN Crafty Friends!
It's Halloween and the last day of October! EEK!
I swear this month went by so quickly!
I blinked 3 times and BAM it's over!

I think they are right... the older you get
the quicker time seems to past ya by.
Or at least for me... I see it that way!

I thought I would end October with a Halloween card!
I created this card last weekend and just love how cute it is!

I got almost everything from the Silhouette Store!
Card Design - #273629 (A2 School Clipboard)
Print N Cut Bear Image - #277905 (Stinkin' Cute Designs) cut 2x's
Designer Papers - #220602 & #205976 (Miss Kate Cuttables)

Black card base - Paper Trey Ink
An orange piece of Fun Foam
I used Dimensionals to POP up the bear image
Canon Printer, Cameo, Acrylic Sealer Spray

Here's a close up of the adorable bear - I used a clear Wink of Stella
glitter pen on the trim of the hat, the clipboard topper piece
 and on the potion bottles then went back over it 
with a clear glaze pen and also glazed that adorable nose too! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
I Hope you all have a SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
