Bib Cards, Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Holiday

I’ve moved on to holiday cards but still stuck on bib cards for my holiday cards.

I dug out some eyelets! I know why they are a thing of the past! Although I really like how they look.

I purchased this Cutting Die on the Michaels website and used it for the banner. The tag is a really old Spellbinders cutting die.

Stamps Used: B250 Holly; C113 Ho Ho Ho!; E198 Santa Face; F258 Merry Xmas & New Year; AA33 Mini Open Dual Dots;

Still need some Christmas cards?! Try out kits;

Thinking of You

2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship, Thinking of You

I needed to make some thinking of you cards so I made a few in my “clean off my desk” mission.

I actually cut out three frames and glued together for some depth but still mailable! Just a simple card.

Stamps Used: A022 Thinking of You; EE85 Single Sunflower w/ Bee Lg

Purchased at Michaels 40% off!
The desk is almost completely cleaned up!

Bee Better Soon

2022 New Releases, alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Thinking of You

You may have noticed that this is the same word stamp that was used on yesterday’s card. I love bees and be cards but don’t want to specific of a stamp and I love being able to change the words to fit my card.

Hard to believe it is the month of December. Time just passes so quickly! Hope you had a good Monday

Stamps Used: CC98 Single Sunflower with Bee Sm; CMO119 Bee/Be Better Soon

Cleaning Desk

2022 New Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Get Well Soon, pattern paper

I have had a very messy desk for several weeks now and I’ve decided it needs cleaning up!

I’ve had several cards all “in the process” of being made but none of them completed. I had a couple of hours today to complete several of them. I hope to post them this week. I hope you enjoy them!

Happy After Thanksgiving !

2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship, Thinking of You

Good Evening! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had an awesome few days with family and friends. Didn’t get much work done but many memories were made.

Loving the Fall Colors

My sister made place cards for all of us!

Before all the food and fun!

We continue to have really warm weather. I think it was between 40 degree and 50 degree weather which is t-shirt and shorts weather here in Wisconsin- although you southerners might think that was winter coat weather!

I got a couple of new Cutting Dies on the Michael’s website during the Black Friday week that I had to try out.

I think they will be very versatile and useful!

Snowman Joy

Bib Cards, Card Kits, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

Working on card kits! I think Snowman cards are my favorite. This kit can be purchased as a single card kit or in a pack of five.

What a great option for people who want a handmade card to send to family and friends but not much time- this would make life much easier!

To Ribbon or not to Ribbon?!

alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

That’s is always such a big question! Better not to ribbon if you are mailing the card… but I couldn’t decide if I should put the ribbon on or leave it off. What do you think?

I do so love ribbons!

I sure hope this winter finds me Stamping more!!

Stamps Used: F210 Fancy Rectangle; CC64 Ear Muff Snowman Mini; DD61 Snow Fun Cube; AA15 Dual Dots Mini; AA33 Open Dual Dots Mini;

Theresa suggested a black ribbon! I love it!

One of those days…

Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

Do you ever have one of those days where you have a long list of things to accomplish and you get none of it done??! That was my day today! Grrrr…I did, however, have fun with this card….

The beginning!

This card is so cheerful! I was working on another card at the same time when a red heart fell unto this card by accident and I thought it added so much to the card! Love when that happens. Made my frustrated day a little better. Ahhh it’s the little things in life.

The ending!
Brings out the red in the ear muffs!

Stamps Used: F210 Fancy Rectangle; CC64 Ear Muff Snowman; DD61 Snow Fun Cube; AA33 Open Dual Dots Mini; A240 Arrow Snowflake;

YES! We did get snow!

Forecast: SNOW!

Dull Glossy Paper, Holiday, pattern paper, Snowman, Winter

Our forecast is for snow today! We saw a few flakes the other day but nothing that stuck. Today we are expecting a few inches. I love snowman cards so I got right to work on some.

Yep! Snow Happens!

Some of my most useful stamps are the small Dual dots- both the open and closed. These stamps only come in wood mount because they would be impossible to keep track of in Cling mount. I have trouble keeping track of them in wood mount! They are always some where on my desk. I need to get better at putting them away when I am done with them.

Stamps Used: DD61 Snow Fun Cube; CC64 Ear Muff Snowmen; F210 Fancy Rectangle; AA33 Open Dual Dots Mini; AA15 Dual Dots Mini ; A240 Snowflake;

More snowman cards to come!
