Classy Cards N Such Ornament Challenge #112

Good Morning,  I have made a card for the  Classy Cards N Such Ornament challenge for this week.   I just received a new Sue Wilson die and I was eager to make a card with it, so you will see what I have created with it.

The Joy was cut using the Sue Wilson  Joy - Festive Collection.   It has two dies in it.  One is like the one on my card and the other one is really fancy.   I used gold card stock and silver foil from the Foil Paper - Textured Patterns 1.

 The silver foil pine branches were cut using the Impression Obsession Pine Branch die.   The  Cabrini ornament is a Memory Box die. 

I layered my white card base with a layer of gold card stock.  The next layer was embossed using the Dots embossing folder. I made the bow with the Memory Box Precious Hearts die.    I used a silver rhinestone in the center of the bow.  I used  Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to attach the die cuts to the dotted layer.

Be sure and join us for this challenge.  We love seeing your beautiful cards.

Birthday Cuppa Love

I have a cute card that I made for Classy Cards N Such Blog today.   have a lot of friends that are coffee and tea drinkers so this will be a great card to have on hand.

I started with a white card base and added a layer of pink and white.  The next layer is one that I made a while back when I was playing with my Ken Oliver Color Bursts.   I made them using different colors so now I have one ready for this card.  I like to make extra's when I have the supplies out, they really come in handy to help you a make a quick card for an occasion you may have forgotten about..  The color bursts also are good to have for a card or project when you do not have the color of paper you need.  You just make your own.   For this background I used the Memory Box Texture Drip Ring stencil along with Ken Oliver Color Bursts in  Alazarin CrimsonOrange and just a little dab of the Ultramarine Blue,  which made the hint of green on my card.

I used the Poppy Stamps Teacup Stack die that just arrived from the Classy Cards store.  I put some pink and yellow card stock behind the cups.   I popped the cups up on the background with Joy Foam Pads Large.

The sentiment was stamped using the Sweet N' Sassy stamps called "Keep In Touch".  I like this set because it has almost every sentiment one needs in card making.

For the finishing touch, I added sequins and attached them with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.  I think the sequins just help to give the card a more festive look.  

Thanks, so much, for coming by today.  Have a great weekend.

Classy Cards N Such - I Am So Thankful

Here is a card I made for the Classy Cards N Such challenge this week.  When I was thinking about this challenge and what I was going to make,  I was thinking about all the things I am thankful for.  I had a very long list of things.

I started my card with a brown card base,  added pumpkin card stock and a layer of dotted designer paper. 

Next I used my Spellbinders Oval Regalia die with Ivory card stock.  I have had this die for a while and I finally remembered to use it.  It looks even prettier than I had imagined.  I attached it to the designer paper using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.

I used my Impression Obsession Classic Truck die with a piece of brown paper from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Paper Pad.   I placed the die cut on my oval and made a few marks with a pencil so I knew where it would be located.    I then stamped some pumpkins and colored them with markers.   Next I sponged some blue clouds  and sponged green for the grass.  I stamped some blades of grass in a darker green.  I sponged brown ink around the edges of the truck.  The hub caps were made with silver paper, but I was wearing a red shirt when I took the picture so one of them looks red.  I popped the truck up on the oval using  Joy Foam Dots Small.  I stamped Thankful with the
Sweet N' Sassy stamp set "Keep In Touch".

I added the orange flower and put a Silver Rhinestone in the center for the finishing touch.

Thank you for viewing my card today and be sure to join us for the challenge.  Bev always has a nice prize for the lucky winner.

Classy Cards N Such - Pink, Glittery Chloe Stems

Good Morning,  blog friends.    The leaves are falling very quickly in my little corner of the world and almost all of the summer flowers are gone.  I still have some pink petunia's that give the lawn a little color.   Seeing the pink colored petunias put me in a mood to make a flower card, for
Classy Cards N Such,  with sparkles to brighten up the day.

I started with a white card base and cut another white layer to use over it.  I used my Sue Wilson
Lavish Swirls Diagonal die to on the bottom of this layer.   I chose the  Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing folder to emboss the top portion of this layer.   I cut a piece of pink glitter paper to attach under the Lavish Swirls.  I popped it up over the card base using Joy Foam Pads Large.

I used the same pink glitter paper with the Memory Box Tall Chloe Stem die.    The pink and silver glitter butterflies were made using the Memory Box Butterfly Delights die.

I adhered the chloe stems and butterflies to my card using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive and the Art Institute Metal Tip.  For the final touch to my card,  I added white pearls to the butterfly and chloe stems.

All of the highlighted products mentioned may be found in the Classy Cards N Such Store.  You may use the code Shirley-10 for a ten percent discount.

I hope you liked my card and I appreciate you stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

CCNS Challenge # 110-Stockings Were Hung

I am sharing a Christmas card I made for the Classy Cards N Such #110 challenge to use red, white and a touch of green plus add a stocking or mitten.

I layered my white card base with a piece of beautiful red foil from the Textured Patterns 1 paper pack.  Next I embossed the next white layer using the Dots embossing folder. 

I cut three white wreaths using the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath.  I glued them together using
Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.    I used the Poppy Stamps Stocking Garland die to cut the stockings and the holly.  I used scrap pieces of the Foil paper to make them.  I save every little piece of this beautiful paper for small items like these.

I felt like my card needed something else so I chose to use the Impression Obsession Tied Line Die to add a little spice to the lower corner.    I added a White Pearl to the center of the bow.

I hope you plan on joining us for the challenge.  See you there.

Colorful Fish - MIX Challenge

Here is a card I made for the Mix challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and used stamps by MFP Stamp Shop stamps.  To create the background I used Dilusions spray in blue and purple colors.  I used a SU honeycomb stamp with white acrylic paint over the top of it.  I colored my "fishies" with copics and added sequins on the card to look like fish bubbles.

Hope your having a great weekend.  Thanks, for looking at my card.
