Christmas Card using Snow Swirled

I made this card for a shoebox swap for my Stampin’ Up group , The Philly Inkers. I used the Real Red cardstock as a back ground. I stamped “En Francois” background with black StazOn ink. Then on Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree and sentiment from “Snow Swirled” in Glorious Green Classic Ink. I attached that to Glorious Green Cardstock, and tied it up with ¼” Real Red Grosgrain ribbon. I attached that to the Real Red card. To give it a little shine I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the tree. I must say that I am very proud of this card!

Big on Christmas

I made this Card front for a Monthly Card front swap I am hosting on Cricut.com, and also for a swap for my Stampin’ Up group. I used the Big On Christmas set from Stampin’ Up. I stamped the image on the Whisper White cardstock, matted it on Bashful Blue. I then used bleach with the snowflakes from the “Season of Joy” and the “Short and Sweet” sets from Stampin’ Up. I used the Brilliant Blue Cardstock for the background. I must say when I made them, I used two different qualities of cardstock. I made some with the Brilliant Blue from Stampin’ Up (shown in this picture) and some with a dark blue I bought at a store. The ones I made with Stampin’ Up’s cardstock came out much clearer, with the bleach.

Get Well Card House-Mouse

I made this card using a card I had received from a swap with my Stampin' Up group as a template. I made this one for KellPieJo's swap on Cricut.com. I focused on a smaller part of the House-Mouse stamp as seen in the last picture. I think it turned out pretty well. I didn't have any patterned paper to do the stamp justice so I used a dotted border stamp from savvystamps. There is a little Daffodil
stamped behind the sentiment, that is from Purple Daisy Designs, and the sentiment is from rubber soul. Luckily I recieved one back from that SWAP so I was able to update my pictures!

Masculine cards

I created these cards for the November theme of Masculine cards, for the (2008) Addicted to Cardmaking SWAP on Cricut. I ran the green through my Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes folder. The Fish is a stamp by Inkadinkadoo. I knew I liked that stamp when I bought it way back when. I finished it up with a little bit of Hemp tied on!
