Christmas Eve and Boxing Day.

Christmas Eve and Boxing Day

Russian Tea Cups aka Sandies

It’s Christmas Eve.  After posting so much for the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop, I’ve not been on all week.    I have had a slew of visitors at my house,  a sick little one (who’s not so little anymore), school activities,  and lots of cookie making going on!  Here’s a few pictures of the fun we’ve been having:

Cream Cheese Cookies

Finn and Huck are positive I need to drop some food for them!

Off to Six Flags for the Christmas Tree lighting and rides!

Here’s to Christmas Eve.  From my family to yours, we wish you a wonderful day tomorrow.

Don’t forget the Boxing Week Sale starts on Tuesday Morning!

Mr and Mrs

Mr and Mrs:

I got asked to make a wedding card for some friends and the above card is the result.  I love the heart die which I got from Stampin’ Up.  Have been making a lot of them.  Anyway, they wanted something that was elegant, yet splashy to reflect the bride.

I used the silver shimmer tape to create the outline of silver under the main panel rather than a full panel of silver glitter paper.  I used 3D Foam Tape to raise the panel.  I used the silver embossing powder to heat emboss “Congratulations”.

I used one of the new Adventure colors – Raspberry for the heart.

Mr. and Mrs. is done in Black Memento ink and is a retired CTMH stamp set.  It’s a very simple card yet the heart die makes it pretty splashy as requested.   Thanks for stopping by corner and have a creative day!



Do you have some Weddings?

Do you have some weddings?

It seems a little soon to think about weddings in January.  However, in March wedding season starts and is in full swing by the end of April.  Here’s a great card in our Come and Play Card Buffet to help you get a jump on having some special homemade cards.  I just love this Sea Glass paper!  It goes so wonderfully well with the Basic Fundamental papers.

Here you can see that I distressed the sentiment panel with Sea Glass ink.  It’s then popped up with 3D Foam Tape for dimension.  What did we do before we had foam tape?  I love the gold and white ribbon as it adds a bit of sparkle to the card.

Everything is stamped with the Memento Black Ink because I colored the flowers in with our awesome watercolor pencils.  Using the water filled brushes, you create the watercolored look.  Then add some of our new gold shimmer brush over the top of the flower.  A few of the new gold glitter bling finishes the card off.

Have you tried our awesome Shimmer Brushes?  Do you like Wink of Stella?  If you do, you need to try ours.  The price point is better and you get more juice!  Check out this great video on using them:

You’ll have a wedding some time so come make this card in the Come and Play Card Buffet.  Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
