Stampin' Royalty Challenge #39

I used the Jolly Old Saint Nick SU! stamp set for the newest Stampin' Royalty challenge. I used the blush blossom marker with a blender pen to color his face.  Sending Love epoxy brads are on sale at the clearance rack from stampin up right now.  The front is adhered to crumb cake cardstock.  I used the ribbon punch, designer label punch and the oval punch.  I used the circle punch with always artichoke to make the epoxy brads stand out more.

Perfect Punch JOY with Embossing

I wanted to try the new poppy parade in-color.  This has the white embossed with the lattice folder, the poppy embossed with elegant lines and Joy is from perfect punches.  All of the stamps in the perfect punches stamp sets matches our punches so you know I love it!  I like the poppy parade even more than I thought I would.  It is really bright and cheery. The poppy color pops. This was cased from another great stamper.  Sadly, I can't find her name but I liked her card sooo much!

Halloween Treat Time with the BIG SHOT

The new bigshot tasteful trim die cuts felt like butter.  I cut a pillow box with the big shot and decorated it for a special Halloween treat and a matching card.  The pear glimmer brad accent is in the new Winter Mini catalog.  The stamp is from Batty For You.  I'm using retired Cast-A-Spell designer paper from SU. A special little three year old will find her favorite skittles in the pillow box and a card from Grammy.  This is for the suoc2 challenge to use the Big Shot.

Sweet Snow Globe with Medallion in Cherry Cobbler

The sweet snow globe center fits nicely in the center of the medallion background stamp.  The sentiment is from many merry messages.  I'm a red gal and cherry cobbler is still the best!

Fall Blessings

I decorated our home for fall yesterday.  I put tiny orange lights on a pencil tree thinking our granddaughter would like it but it needed some decorations.  I thought I'd emboss small die cut leaves to hang on it but instead I put them on a card!  The tree still isn't decorated.  LOL  The colors are more mustard, cherry cobbler, old olive and cajun craze.  I embossed the leaves with the vintage wallpaper stampin up embossing folder.  The inside circle is from the set circle circus.  The sentiment is from grateful greetings.  The leaves are mounted on vanilla, espresso and cajun craze.  I got the idea from a stamped founder's day make and take card.  I think I'll wait for my granddaughter to visit.  She likes to decorate at age 3  and it is endearing to see everything hung in one spot which of course will be down low and at her eye level.

Sweet Snowglobe used with Just Believe

I love the new concord crush with melon mambo together.  I combined the sweet snowglobe with Just Believe.   I love showing how to make stamp sets versatile and in this case I changed a Christmas stamp to an all purpose stamp by changing the middle.  It is difficult to see but the concord has a large stamp with concord ink on it.  It looks much prettier in real life! I got the idea of using Just Believe in the snowglobe from splitcoast.  What would we do without casing?

French Foliage mounted on Espresso and Peach Parfait

I sponged vanilla with daffodil delight, cherrycobbler and cajun craze ink. I stamped using the same colors plus espresso.   I cut apart the strip and mounted it on espresso mounted on peach parfait cardstock.  I think it is such a versatile card for fall.  I've already made one into a birthday card and another is for a sympathy card.  I like leaving some cards blank so when I need one I can quickly personalize it for the right occasion.

Butterfly Prints go Cajun!

I love the stamp set Butterfly Prints.  In fact I love just about anything that has a matching punch.  The giant ric-rac is from the new Big Shot die called Tasteful Trim from the Winter mini on sale now.  I used cajun craze, groovy guava and really rust so you could see the difference in colors.  The card background is also groovy guava.  I really like using the new cajun craze.  It has more brown in it and looks great with lots of colors.  The middle of the butterflies are just espresso dots.

You Mean the World to Me!

My friend from South Carolina will know I was thinking of her when she gets this card. I cut up old maps to make cards sometimes which makes it easy to personalize them.  The arrows were cut with the Big Shot sizzlit called curves ahead.  The designer paper is tangerine tango and the blue is pacific point.  Another quick and easy card.

Sweet Centers and Sweet Treat Cups

Skittles fills the sweet treat cup on this card I made last Halloween for my Granddaughter.  I made the card using the SU scallop square die.  I think everyone loves getting cards with sweet treat cups.  I was tickled SU! carried them over to the new catalog.
