An Old Fashioned Thank You


Stampin' Up On Line Spectacular Holiday Mini


Hello Friends . . .  Thank you guys for all your comments for the blog candy and for the on line orders.  There's still time left for both.  I'll announce our Blog Candy winner on Tuesday and there's still plenty of great deals out there on Stampin' Ups On Line Spectacular Sale.  Today is Cyber Monday so don't delay.  Today I have a Thank You card to share.  I started out with my base of Very Vanilla.  Wanting the Vintage Look I decided to try a piece of Crumb Cake and destress it.  I used our jumbo roller Very Vintage inked up with Early Expresso, then I used the floral image from Artistic Etchings and inked it with Early Expresso and stamped it in a random pattern.  Then for the destressed look I sponged all around the edges and added some of our Crochet Trim called Victoria.  Oh so pretty!!!!  I wanted to use an image that had not been inked for a while and I selected the bird on the branch from Friends 24-7.  The only thing I colored was the branch.  I used our cool tool the Color Spritzer with an Early Expresso marker to make it look old and sponged again around the edges.  My thank you was from a retired set Watercolor Trio and punched with the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches.  Added some pearls and viola' you have a great thank you card. 

FINAL DAYS. . .  You still have time to take advanage of all the great deals that Stampin' Up is offering.  These offers end on Nov 30th.

A Bells and Boughs Christmas


Demonstrator Starter Kit Bells and Boughs Holiday Mini


Good Morning To All.  We made it to Friday and we will soon be well into our week end.  Yippie!!!!  Today I have a Christmas Card to share with you.  I got the idea from another blog, but I must apolize I don't remember where.  My cardbase is a piece of Cherry Cobber, just one of my favs.  My next layer may surprise you but it worked.  I didn't have any designer paper from the beautiful Deck The Halls and I fell in love with the music notes paper.  So I got to work and  I cut myself a piece of News Print DP and took a sponge to it.  I used Always Artichoke Ink and sponged till I got it dark enough to resemble the piece in Deck the Hall DP.  Then I took the holly stamp from Bells and Boughs and stamped a few time to add some background.  I bet at first glance you couldn't even tell.  My focal point is stamped in Cherry Cobbler from the same set and mounted on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I used my nesties here but if you have the retired Cozzule Set that would work just fine.  I stamped another piece of the holly on Very Vanilla, colored it with a marker and then cut it out and used a dimensional to mounted it on top.  Added a few pearls and some 1/2" Cherry Cobber Seam Binding Ribbon.  TIP:  To get the all scrunched up look on your ribbon I took a piece of thread and stitched down the middle of my ribbon and ruffled it up until I liked it.  I also had a piece of 1/8" Score Tape already on my card so I could tape it down as I ruffled.  Easy Peasy.  I hope you enjoyed this pretty Christmas Card and if you need any of the supplies to make this card please shop in my on-line store for any of these supplies.  Thanks for stopping by today and chatting with me.  I am looking forward to the new Occasion Mini.  OMG it is full of cute stuff.  Have a wonderful day.  Toodles
