Winter Shoe Box Swap

On Saturday, November 12, 2016, I hosted a Winter/Christmas-themed Shoe Box Swap at a local community center. There were 19 of us.  It was so much fun.  Here are all of the cards we made.  Mine is the first card featuring the 4 chickadees.  Enjoy.

Go Paris Cards

In a previous post, I shared with you Cigar Box 43 featuring the Go Paris paper collection by Best Creation Inc.  Since I had a bunch of leftover paper, I also made the following set of cards to go with the box.

Cigar Box 43 - Go Paris

A dear friend asked if I could make a box with a Paris theme to match a quilt she recently made. It just so happened that I had purchased a set of papers some time ago that were a perfect match.  This box features papers from the Go Paris collection by Best Creation Inc.

Also see the coordinating Go Paris Cards that I made out of the leftover papers from this project.

Cigar Box 42 - Frosted

This festive box features papers from the Frosted Collection by KaiserCraft.

Cigar Box 41 - Butterfly Medley

This cheery box features the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection by Heartfelt Creations.

Cigar Box 40 - Tales of You & Me

This beautiful box features designer papers from the Tales of You & Me Collection by Prima Marketing Inc.

Cigar Box 39 - Hydrangeas

This pretty box features papers from the Provincial Collection by KaiserCraft.

Graduation Cards

I made these graduations cards a few months ago; one for a college grad, and one for a high school grad. 

Just use the school colors in the card stock layers, and the black silhouettes are a die by Impression Obsession.  Stamp sentiment of your choice, and emboss with gold embossing powder if you so desire.

Pages 81 & 85

I submitted a couple of cards a looooong time ago and completely forgot about them until the magazine showed up. Both cards are very glittery - it's just hard to capture that in photos.

The three ornaments were punched in different shades of glitter paper.   The bottom card used silver glitter paper cut with a snowflake die.  The "Ornaments of Life" stamp is by Great Impressions.

Serene Scenery Card Workshop

I really like these awesome cards we made at a Stamping Up Workshop I hostessed at my local Demo's home a couple of days ago.   They are so easy using the designer paper from Stampin Up's Serene Scenery Stack.  All of the sentiments are stamped directly onto the designer paper.  Some are heat embossed, but don't have to be.  The boots are the only image stamped and colored seperately, fussy cut, and adhered with Dimensionals.  So easy!

CYCI #131
I haven't done an online challenge in a looooong time, but it just so happened that I was working with this exact color scheme on some other cards, so I figured, what the heck! 

The supply list for this card can be found by following this link.
