ICS Blog Hop-Nov 2018 Christmas Is Coming


Wishing You Well
Stamp Set

I am in LOVE with this stamp set!  It is so versatile.  At first glance it’s a fall set, then it’s a winter set, then I realized it’s an Any Time – Any Occasion Stamp Set!!  For this month’s Inspire Create Share Blog Hop our them is “Christmas Is Coming” so of course, it’s a Christmas stamp set!! 

I send a lot of holiday cards and while I do a few ‘over the top’ cards to send to my grown children, mostly I keep my cards simple.   Today’s sample is EZ-PZ, with the exception a tiny bit of fuzzy cutting you can complete this card in just a few minutes!


CARD STOCK SIZES
Card base-Thick Whisper White 8.5” x 11”
Whisper White 4” x 5.25” (putting the
same color as a layer gives a subtle dimension)
Old Olive 1.75” x 4.5”
Under the Mistletoe DSP 1.75” x 3.5”
Scraps of Old Olive & Whisper White

To make the wreath I stamped first in Old Olive, then I cut out the center with the Layering Circles Framelits.  I didn’t like any of the other circle sizes for outer edge of the wreath, so some quick fussy cutting and VIOLA!  By popping the wreath & bow up it gives dimension and texture.  To give it some bling I added Real Red Basic Rhinestones.  The sentiment is cut from the Everyday Label punch, once in Whisper White and matted with Old Olive and tucking it behind the DSP.

Happy Halloween!


Spooky Kitty

I rarely send Halloween cards; however, it is my daughter & son-in-law’s favorite reason to have a party!  So, I thought I would send them a card this year.

I created this fun card using the Burlap background stamp, Making Every Day Bright & Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets and the Christmas Bulb, Cat, & Everyday Label Punches. 

You can make the card with, or without, the ‘glow’ to the bulbs, which are stamped & embossed with black powder on Vellum.  I colored the back with Stampin’ Write Markers before punching them out.  The bulb base is Basic Black card stock and all is applied to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the cat shiny I inked up a piece of Basic Black card stock with VersaMark ink before embossing with clear powder. Once dry, I cut it out with the Cat Punch, added some Silver Metallic Thread for the whiskers, under a tiny cut out triangle of what was left of the Basic Black embossed card stock.  The eyes and necklace pendant are made from Basic Jewels Clear Rhinestones, with Mini Sequin Trim for the base. I colored the eyes & ‘ruby’ with Blends markers before I added them.  The cat is also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you’ll come back again – I will be sharing a lot more on my Facebook Page so I hope you will CLICK HERE and follow me!  I am off to Stampin’ Up! OnStage next week so . . . Lots To Share!!!

Until next time . . .
