Tips & Tricks for saving ribbon and paper when you are making your cards. The mats are actually two pieces and so is the ribbon. You can see all the details in the video tutorial below.

For All Things Handmade Card Stampin' Up!

You can get the fun accents to the sentiment with Washi Tape. I love the combination of the Washi Tape and the Decorative Label punch. It is an awesome addition to the Good Greetings set. I know I will be using these two products together again.

I use the sketch again from the other day, but this time I went with the White Christmas set this time. I used the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and the Smoky Slate Blendabilities to color the focal point.

White Christmas Colored with blendabilities

Because the stamps are photopolymer I was able to manipulate the stamp to get a flatter line when I was stamping the image. I inked only one side of the tree image and you can see how I did that in the following video.

I have filmed a video of me coloring the car and tree with the Blendabilities marker. (If you cannot see the video you may have to come to my site.)

Today is the last day of all of the ink pads on sale! Don’t miss this 15% discount.

I love sketches and often use them to start a card I am creating. In fact when I am looking at cards on the web, I note the layout of the card and keep notes on the layouts I really like. I saw a couple of cards that were similar in layout to this one and came up with a sketch for creating cards.

Silver and White Ornamental Pine

This is a fairly simple card with just a couple of layers. The branches from the Ornamental Pines set are embossed in silver with the pine cone inked with Lost Lagoon and stamped off before I stamped it on the smallest layer. The sentiment is silver embossed over the pine cone. The sentiment layer is matted with a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock. 

Ornamental Pine Christmas Card

Here is the sketch I came up with that I used for this Ornamental Pine card. I plan to make up a few more cards using this sketch and will share them on my Facebook page.

Vacations are supposed to be restful right? Well I have had quite a time recovering my our wonderful trip to Washington D.C. last weekend. We had to fly home through Chicago and had a few delays. I am just grateful that we made it home.

Pumpkin Curvy Keepsake Box
I think I am finally to the place where things will be getting back to normal around here (whatever normal is) and I will be back to sharing more projects. Of course this weekend is also my daughter’s Homecoming weekend and she is having a blast helping with the float and today is the big football game.

Curvy Keepsakes Pumpkin

I took a bit of time to create this fun pumpkin with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die.  It was amazingly easy to make and they are so fun to decorate. I made a quick video showing how I made this box. (I am learning how to use a new camera so please excuse my video errors.) You may have to come to my site to see the video.

All of the supplies can be found in my Online Store.
