Poinsettia from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps

IMG_6746Oh my goodness, Halloween is this Friday, and that means Christmas will be coming soon!  I have been working on some Christmas cards, and will be featuring them here from now till the big day!  This card is one of my favs.  I used Sweet’n Sassy Stamps Poinsettia clear stamp.  The great thing about this stamp is that you can stamp and color it, or you can stamp it on a colored paper and use it that way.  I chose the latter for this card.  I stamped the flower three times on red paper, and once on my green.  Then I used the Poinsettia die to cut them all out.  For the green leaves, I left the die cut as it was, but for the flower, I fussy cut some of the design off.  So the very first layer next to the green leaves, I cut off the leaves only, then a little more for the next, and still a little more for the top.  I rolled the edges a little, assembled the flower with the leaves alternating a bit,  and used small adhesive squares between the leaves of the flower in places to give it some dimension. I added a few rhinestones for the center of the flower.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the Merry Christmas on kraft paper, and used ribbon from Recollections as the trim.  One of my Grandmothers loved poinsettias, (always have a touch of red she said)  so this card is in honor of her!    I am entering this card in the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Special DT Christmas Blog Hop!  Check out the Blog Hop for great DT cards, using Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps!   Stay tuned for more Christmas inspiration!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Cute Ghoul Halloween Card

IMG_6664   I love Halloween!   This is a fun card I came up with!  I cut the skirt by hand, and the glittery stars on her dress are stickers from my stash.  The legs are from Taylored Expressions (the witch is in die set).  I used glittery black paper to cut her shoes.  The hem on her dress is the spiderweb border from Taylored Expressions also.  I added some rhinestones to her dress and shoes and a ribbon bow for her waist.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches, and I used a Technique Tuesday banner die to cut it out.  The background paper is from my stash.  Spooky fun!!!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Hi, Happy World Cardmaking Day!  This card is for the Operation Write Home celebration.  The theme this year is Love cards.  I wanted to combine fall in my card and had this cute falling for you sentiment.  I used a Darice embossing folder to emboss a piece of kraft paper for the frame.  The tree and leaves die is from My Favorite Things, and the hearts are from Lil’ Inkers. The tag die is from Taylored Expressions.  I edged the leaves and hearts with Memento ink.  Hope you have a fun day, take some time and make a card!  Send it to a friend or donate to Operation Write Home, for one of our wonderful Servicemen and Women!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Nuts For You

Happy World Card Making Day!  Today I made a card for the Newton’s Nook celebration and contest.  I love this little squirrel from their set, Sweetheart Tails, and the cute sentiment!  The squirrel is colored with Copic E25 and E57.   I colored two and fussy cut one to put on top the other, to make him stand out.  The acorn is colored with  E31 and E57. The banner die is from Taylored Expressions and the circle dies from Sizzix.  The paper is from Doodlebug, called Friendly Forest.  The heart is from a chipboard sticker set from Studio Calico, and I used a bit of May Arts twine to tie on the banner.  Have a great day, celebrate with us by making a card, and send it to someone to cheer them!   “Be Good!”  Debbie
