Card Class Sneak Peek

Ready for a quick sneek peek of one of the cards that we will be making this week at Kim's Card Class?

This Christmas card was made with the Foxy Friends stamp set. This stamp set is super awesome. It not only is made to stamp a fox, but also a variety of animals with the same stamps. I've posted a racoon and a fox on my blog a few months ago, but today I've made a reindeer with this adorable set.

Oh my gosh, I think the reindeer is darling! I first stamped the trees in mint macaron ink onto mint macaron cardstock. The reindeer is stamped on white shimmer paper in crumb cake and tip top taupe inks.


I also used the "Labeler Alphabet" to stamp the greeting. Once you try this alphabet set, you'll wonder how you lived without it. There are so many cool possibilities.

Its not a great photo, but if you look close you can see a little shimmer from the white shimmer paper. I used it to play off the sparkle in the gold glimmer paper.


I'm excited to see all my friends at class this week and I hope they love this card as much as I do.

Check back later in the week for more creations from Kim's Card Class.

Until then...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!

Remarkable You- Part Two

I thought I would go ahead and share the other two cards that I made with the Remarkable You stamp set. I haven't had time to make any Christmas cards lately, other than the Christmas ornaments and make n takes for my team Christmas party and the cards for Kim's card class that will both be held next week- so I don't want to post them yet or I'll ruin the surprise. I will post those things next week though, so no worries.

I used the same copper emboss powder and watercolor paper as I did on my previous cards. I changed up some of the colors as you can see. This one uses flirty flamingo, melon mambo, pear pizazz and wild wasabi.


I added the pearls and melon mambo stitched ribbon as well as a splatter of copper embossing to the background. For the splatter, I simply used the splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and inked it in the versa mark ink pad, then poured the copper emboss powder over it and heated it up with the heat tool. Viola- instant splatter and shine.


I used the cala lily on the final card. I just adore all the flowers in the Remarkable You stamp set. This one I colored in blues. Soft sky, marina mist and dapper denim were the main colors of the cala lily. I don't know if cala lilies actually come in blue, but it looked like a good color to me.


Once again, I splattered the background with copper emboss powder as I did in the card above. I used sahara sand ink from the lid of the ink pad and an aqua painter to give the background a nice color wash.


I hope the recipients enjoyed their special cards as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Thanks again for visiting today!

Until the next time...

Remarkable You- Cards for friends

I was excited to get to use one of my favorite flower themed stamp sets to make cards for a couple friends who are pretty amazing.

The "Remarkable You" stamp set is one of those sets that is so beautiful, no matter what color or what layout it is stamped in.

I knew I wanted to emboss and watercolor these cards, because this set looks beautiful with both techniques.

I used watercolor paper and copper emboss powder and then colored in the flowers with my aquapainters and ink from the lids of my ink pads.

This card uses watermelon wonder, flirty flamingo and bermuda bay inks and cardstocks.


I added a few pearl jewels and beautiful ribbon to accent this card.


I also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the splattered background. I couldn't live without the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp!

Here's a card also stamped with the Remarkable You stamp set. This time I used marina mist, island indigo, pear pizazz and wild wasabi inks on the watercolor paper.

 I added the "Petal Burst" emboss folder to emboss the marina mist cardstock, and a cluster of copper thread behind the lotus flower.

After I took this photo, I added a few small pearl jewels in the background. I wish I would have taken another photo, but even without the pearls, this card still has that simple beauty.


I have a couple more cards made with this stamp set to share with you later in the week, so stop back to take a look!

Until the next time...

Snowfriends Snowmen Surprise

This fall I was able to visit and shop at a few of the local craft fairs around PA and Ohio. Its so fun wandering through all of the displays and seeing all the beautiful handmade creations made by the talented artisians in the area.

I have a dear friend who loves snowmen and she collects them to decorate her home for Christmas. My friend Cindy, lives in Hawaii, so she doesn't have many opportunities to shop for or find cute snowmen items in her home state.

So, I love browsing through the crafters booths looking for that unique and perfectly cute snowman for Cindy.

I did find a few darling snowmen for Cindy and I also stamped up a cute snowman card to send with the package of snowmen that I sent off to the aloha state.


I used the Snow Place stamp set as well as the Snow Friends Framelits die set on Cindy's card.

I also used the Cable Knit emboss folder for the background of the card. I just love how the Cable Knit emboss folder gives the whisper white cardstock that warm and cozy feel.


I used a few different glimmer papers on this snowman. First, take a look at that carrot nose.. thats the pumpkin pie glimmer paper which is only available for a limited time. Get it while you can! I also used the dazzling diamonds and silver glimmer paper to give the snowman the extra sparkle and shine, because sparkle and shine describes my sweet friends personality to a T.

So, are you curious to see what snowmen I picked out for Cindy? I sure hope that the post office what was right when they told me she would get her package yesterday because if Cindy sees this post, it will definitely ruin the surprise!

Here's all the adorable hand crafted snowmen that I sent to Cindy. The bottom left ornament was made from a tin can lid and the snowman on the bottom right was crafted around an embroidery hoop. How cool is that?


I sure hope that Cindy likes the snowmen and I hope they got there before she put up her tree!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate your visit!

Until the next time...
