Happy New Year’s! Hope you have some exciting plans for this evening. My husband and I plan on a nice quite dinner at home after watching the Penquins play a NYE evening hockey game, hopefully a winner! Weather here is cold, wind chills in the single digits expected for this evening, nice evening to spend by the fire!
The other day while looking at some cards on Pinterest, I saw a card by Brian King using a stamp set from the 2015 Sale-A-Bration catalog and really liked the design, so I “cased” (copy and share everything) the design in my card for today. It was the combination of layers and the piece of designer series paper cut at an angle that popped for me. I used the same layout to create a Happy New Year’s card to send to a friend living out of state. Thought adding the rhinestones over the bubbles seems rather festive.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you enjoyed the card.
Look forward t0 2015 with new cards and projects to share, Craft On!

Today my baby brother Michael is getting his new ‘bionic’ hip. He has been having a lot of pain the last few months and decided he had enough, so today is first day to pain free walking, golfing, etc. I’ve been thinking about him a lot today so I thought I would use the new stamp set ‘Sheltering Tree’ from the new 2015 Occasions catalog to make a ‘thinking of you’ card to send to him. Just spoke with Mikey (as I like to call him), and all went well, he is in his room resting and should be home with any luck by Friday, I’m sure he will not mind me sharing the card today.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the card. Have a great week, Craft on!

Today I thought I would share with you the Christmas card I made for my sister-in-law Debbie and her husband Chuck. Debbie is a big fan of the colors purple and silver, so for her Elegant Eggplant and Silver Embossing is perfect when deciding on card colors. For the card, I used the Wonderous Wreath Bundle and stamped the wreath in Wisteria Wonder then Elegant Eggplant, for the berries used Rhinestone jewels. Wreath is adorned with a bow made of Silver Satin Ribbon. The wreath is sitting on a mat of Elegant Eggplant embossed with the Hardwood stamp with Silver embossing powder. Sentiment is from the vintage Good Greeting stamp set, embossing in Silver on Elegant Eggplant layered on Silver Glimmer Paper.

Welcome to the weekend. Less than two weeks before Christmas, where has the time gone, seems like we just finished decorating. Not sure about you but I still need to finish some shopping this weekend. I did take time this week to do a little shopping. Since I started card making, I don’t remember the last time I visited a card store until this week. I am a big fan of anything “Frosty the Snowman” and when I see something with Frosty and Karen (the little girl from the story), I’m all over it! Below is a picture of the latest ornament I just purchased for my tree – Frosty & me!
Now on to today’s card it’s for the Freshly Made Sketch challenge, please stop over to their blog to see designs by their team and other crafters like myself. Sketch was designed by Karren, perfect for today’s post!
TThis is a simple and clean card to put together. I started with a piece of designer paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Pack, attached to a Crumb cake card base. Next I decided to highlight the Blackberry Bliss colored dots. Sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and matted on a piece of Blackberry Bliss. For a little bling, punch a scallop border on a piece of silver glimmer paper and attached to the bottom. Finished the card with a bow of Honey Honey and the entire piece is backed with Stampin Dimensionals. Nice card for a purple lover in your life.

So how has your week started? Weather has been cold, but they are saying we may see some snow over the next couple days, joy joy happy joy, only my husky Bandit is looking forward to that. I’ve been busy with work and decided tonight was the perfect time for a little craft relaxation. Nothing is better after a stressful day than to spend some time crafting.
Tonight’s card is for the MOJO Monday sketch challenge. When I saw the design a cute and bright colorful card came to mind. I was looking through my Designer Series Paper and came across this sheet from the Confetti Celebration pack and thought it would be perfect to plan my card around. Card base is Tangelo Twist, with a piece of the designer series paper (DSP) is attached to the left side. The opposite side of the DSP is adhered to a piece of Basic Gray and centered on the front (backed with Stampin Dimensionals). Animals are from the Zoo Babies stamp set and the Stamp-a-ma-Jig was used to make sure Mr. Monkey sat nicely on the back of the Mr. Alligator. Image is matted on Pistachio Pudding and Crushed Curry. Sentiment is from Something to Say using Modern Label and Word Window Punches.

Every week, Stampin’ Up! selects new items and offers them to you a great discount. This week’s bundle of items is particularly great because the items are wonderful. I use the Hexagon punch all the time – if you don’t have it, you need it. The Hexagon punch is PERFECT for creating a banner tip on the end of a strip of paper – and who doesn’t love a perfect banner tip? How many of you have bunches and bunches of Designer Series paper just laying around, the Envelope Liner Framelits are for you – great way to use that Designer Paper and add that like something something to your envelope, something I plan to do.

Happy Sunday, it’s going to be cold and sunny day, better than yesterday which was cold and rainy. Plan on doing a little more Christmas shopping today for before the birthday party for Jackson today (yesterday I posted his birthday card). Saturday was pretty busy with cleaning, shopping and cooking. Made some homemade spaghetti sauce for the upcoming week and freezer – yummy for the tummy!
The card for today is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch challenge. I will lucky enough to be voted one of the featured artisans for chanllenge #119. Please take the time to check out their blog and see the designs by their talented team and other crafters like me. Why not post a card yourself? Here is the sketch.
Last night I was checking out Pinterest and noticed a few cards with Lovely as a Tree using vellum and just knew I had to use this for my card. To get started I used Versamark Ink and White Embossing powder to stamp Lovely as a Tree on a piece of Stampin Up Vellum cardstock, turned the vellum over and added color to the back to give the look of grass and sky. On the card base first I used Gorgeous Grunge to add a little background stamping then used the Deco Label Framelits to cut a “window” for the vellum , the Big Shot & Magnetic Platform really made it easy to do. On the inside of the card I used adhesive to add the vellum (embossed side out) and piece of Whisper White card stock behind the window so that the image with coloring can be seen. Using the 2-way glue pen and dazzling diamond glitter added sparkles to the front the card. 2012-2014 In-Color Sequins, Dazzling Diamond glimmer paper and stars punched from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack help accent the card. Sentiment is from the vintage Good Greeting stamp set in Old Olive on Crushed Curry.
Thank you stopping by, hope you enjoyed the card. Below are supplies used and link to my Stampin Up store for your purchasing pleasure.
Have a great week, Craft On!
Tomorrow the family will be celebrating my cousin Lisa’s son Jackson’s first birthday, today I thought I would share the card I will be taking to the party, it’s a shaker card! Thought it would be entertaining for the little guy. 🙂 Before I share the card with you, thought I would fill you in on the Year-End Closeout sale that just started with Stampin Up.

For Jackson’s card, I used the Little Letter thinlits with the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform to cut out the words on a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. This piece is backed by a piece of window sheet cut just a little smaller and glued to the cardstock, foam tape along the border helps make the shaker. Next step was taking a variety of scraps and the Confetti Stars punch to punch a bunch of confetti to tuck inside to shake, shake, shake! Card base is Whisper White to show off all the colors of the stars inside!
Inside featuring the Zoo Babies and Remembering your Birthday stamp set. Animals are lined up using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and ready to party!
