Cc142_wonderland_snowmanI only used one stamp on this card.  I’m not even sure where I got it.  I think it came from Archiver’s and I really like the font of the Merry Christmas!  I wish I had handwriting like that!!!

I received my Nestabilities in the mail the other day and just HAD to use them.  I used the scalloped set for the blue rectangle and the celery snowman was cut with the regular rectangles!

The ribbon is from Michael’s.  The colors used for this card are Basic Gray, Celery, Bashful Blue and Basic Grey Dasher DP!

Until Next Time…Happy Creating!!!

I read this on Anna’s blog this morning!  I thought is was so funny!  It actually made me think of my BIL.  He is a police officer back home! 


Then I saw this funny card on Sherry Cheever’s blog!  It’s so funny how the two could go together!!!

Fs42_solemn_stillness_mrI really like how this card turned out.  I started with the Basic Grey Fruitcake DP and when I saw that I thought of strings of lights for a Christmas tree! Then I remembered the Solemn Stillness set that I have!!! 
This card was made for the Feature Stamper Challenge this week on SCS.  This week’s Featured Stamper is TexasGrammy.  I cruised through her gallery and this is the card I chose to case.  I turned the card on it’s side though and completed it that way!

The colors I used are Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, and White.  The verse is up on dimensionals but you can’t tell that by the picture!  I love the green tree with the gold embossing powder.  It looks really good with the 2 layers of ribbon I used too.  The bottom layer is a wider gold organdy ribbon and the top is burgundy organdy!

Until Next Time…..Happy Creating!  Also leave a comment on someone’s SCS post today!  Give someone a smile!

SC151 Dashing Child…

This card was for last week’s sketch challenge.  I got a late start on doing the challenges last week.  I have this week’s done but just realized I hadn’t posted last week’s yet!  I will start there then!
The DP is Basic Gray Dasher and the stamp is from the Michael’s $1 bin!  The punch is SU’s Wrought Iron punch with the guard removed so I could punch a border instead of a corner.  I added River Rock and Blue Bayou Stitched ribbon and brads!  The coordinating colors are blue bayou, river rock and old olive.

The following was taken from Ellen Hutson’s sandwich recipes!  I only have a cuttlebug so this is the info that I was looking for.  If you have any other die cut machine you can check here for that sandwich recipe!!

This machine is capable of cutting and embossing any Spellbinders™ die. I can not
guarantee that the B plates will not break in the Cuttlebug, but when
testing my B plates were fine. They did make that ever present cracking
noise though and therefore my hesitancy to say that they will never
break being I have broken many B plates over the last few months. I do
plan on testing the Spellbinders Thick White Mats and the Blue Mats
included in the Wizard Charm Embossing Kits to see whether I can find
an alternative to the acrylic plates. The white and blue mats provided
by Spellbinders are so much sturdier.

How to Use a Spellbinders™ Die in the Cuttlebug™:

2. C plate
