Adore Flip-it Card

Hi there!

Busy times at my house with Christmas right around the corner! But that didn't stop me from making a card with the beautiful new card kit from The Stamps of Life called Adore.


I created my circle card from Pixie and added the layering pieces from the paper pad. I die cut circles and stamped these cute sentiments. The stamps are included in the kit.


Here is a closeup:

I added a Mint Chip circle and this big, beautiful Adore die cut from Razzleberry and Powdered Sugar. Razzleberry won't be available until early 2019 but isn't it gorgeous?? 


I tied on a piece of Razzleberry seam binding and added epoxy dots and foam glitter hearts. All supplies used included in the kit except for the ink pad.

Happiness is Cocoa shaker card

Hi there!

I had so much fun participating in the Coffee Loving Card Makers and The Stamps of Life blog hop that I was inspired to make another card!


This shaker card began by stamping marshmallows in Licorice all over Gingersnap and coloring with white pencil.

I glued down a few sequins so there would be some visible when the contents settle at the bottom of the card.

I used the Stitched Rectangles to create a frame from patterned paper:


I had a lot of fun with this part - making a mix of sequins, beads and snowflakes:


I assembled the shaker by adding foam strips on the Gingersnap card stock. The sequin mix went in next. 

Do you see the foam on the left side? I added this to keep the shaker mix from falling to that side. I put an acetate rectangle on the foam and then the patterned paper frame. 


I knew I was going to have a mug on the left side so that is why I didn't want sequin mix to fall over there. The foam allows it to float around the mug. I cut a snowflake from Winter wishes and a spoon  on Blue Jay and stamped Cocoa with Strawberry ink.


I cut two more stitched rectangles from Powdered Sugar and Strawberry and stamped Happiness is with Green Apple.


I added the finished front to Green Apple and an A2 Strawberry card base.

The Stamps of Life and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop

Hi there!

I am so excited to be part of  The Stamps of Life and Coffee Loving  Cardmakers Blog Hop in celebration of National Cocoa Day!

Be sure to follow the hop at the bottom and leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $25 Gift card! 



I have two projects to share and the first one includes a pair of elves holding a large cup of Hot Cocoa:

I stamped my cup onto a piece of patterened paper and strawberry card stock and die cut it out. I then stamped, die cut and colored my elves. Aren't they so cute!

I popped them up on the cup and a Strawberry card stock background.
Next, I stamped and die cut the banner from Mint Chip. I stamped Hot cocoa from Patterns4hotchocolate and added that between the two elves to make it look they are holding it.

It is hard to see but I embossed the Strawberry background before adding it to a layer of Powdered Sugar and an A2 Spearmint card base.

Here is a look at the inside! I die cut two tiny cups from the Icecreamtruck dies and stamped Merry Christmas with Green Apple.


For my second project, I made a gift tag for a box of hot cocoa. 

I cut the mug from patterned paper and used the shadow die to create the tag by letting the die hang over the crease line ensuring that it won't cut all the way through the paper.




I stamped and die cut the whipped cream from Powdered Sugar card stock. I added some white liquid appliqué and let it dry. When you add heat from an embossing tool, it puffs up and gives great texture.

I stamped the sentiments on Strawberry and Powdered Sugar. I hand cut them out to give it a bit of a rustic look.


I stamped and die cut the marshmallows and added liquid appliqué. This time I added a touch of brown marker lightly to the appliqué to give them a "toasted" look!



Here is the finished gift:



Make a mug of hot cocoa and keep hopping! Commenting is open from December 13th-20th. The winner will be announced on December 22.

Merry Christmas Gingerbread man card

Hi there!

It is a busy time of year around my house but I am still working on Christmas cards.

Today's card features my favorite holiday cookie - Gingerbread men!


I die cut the Merry Christmas from Strawberry card stock and added to patterned paper. I cut the card base from Powdered Sugar.

I stamped and die cut several Gingerbread men. I love that you can make them a little dressier like this one or make them plain. There are so many possibilities with this stamp set.


I added one Gingerbread man between the layers to add some fun to the card.


Here is a look inside the card. I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit and added one more Gingerbread man inside. 



I am obsessed with the Envelope Liners that came out recently. It is so quick and easy to dress up an envelope with this must have set.


Here is the finished product:
