So after our family Thanksgiving Thursday night, J. stopped at Michael's with me on our way home. (I know, it's hard to "believe"! that he would be shopping with me, especially in a craft store!). Of course, I went right to the cricut cartridges! I couldn't decide between the "Simply Charmed" and "From My Kitchen" so he said get them both! I was so excited (something new to play with this weekend!) So here is the first card I made with the "Simply Charmed". I just love it, it turned out so cute. Not very difficult at all (the cricut did most of the work!). Just a little glueing, a little sponging and some glitter! The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set.

Baby Hippo

Here's another little baby card I was working on. The hippo is made from the cricut cartridge "Create A Critter". The yellow polka dot paper is actually flocked (so it is too difficult to put a sentiment or title on this card). The little flower on the hippo behind has a sticker gem to add some sparkle. Thanks for looking - back to creating!

Red Mittens

Are you ready for some cold weather? Well, if you are in Michigan, it won't be long! Here is another card that was available at my last workshop. I used some coordinating pattern paper that I had in my stash. The scallop circle is made from the Marvy punch and then I used a small paper punch to punch small holes in each scallop. The mitten stamp is from the set "Merry" (retired Stampin' Up). The sentiment "joy" is a stamp from Inkadinkado. After I stamped the sentiment, I used a 1/2 in circle punch to punch out each letter. I then used pop dots to add dimension to the letters. The red and white ribbon is from PaperTrey Inc.

Grateful Greetings

Here is a Thanksgiving card I had at my last workshop. This set is "Turkey Talk" (retired Stampin' Up). I used pattern paper from a large glitter pack for the background. I used my watercolor pencils to color in the pilgrims. The large scallop oval punch is by Marvy. The sentiment is from the set "Grateful Greetings" (current Stampin' Up). Colors I used for this card are Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. Well, off to get some cards ready for my next workshop! Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Play Snowman

Here is another card I had at my Stamp-a-stack workshop last weekend. All supplies for this card come from retired Stampin' Up products. The stamp set used here is "Winter Play". The snowflakes are felt die cuts. And of course, don't forget the little bit of glitter on the bottom of the snowman!

Christmas Collage

Here are two different cards using the same stamp, Christmas Collage from the holiay mini catalog. Both cards are made using Stampin' Up supplies. For the first one, I also used the set "Winter Post" (for the center circle). I used one of the treat cups and put dazzling diamonds in it to give it a snow globe effect. The sentiment is from "Grateful Greetings" and I used the new label punch. For the second card, I colored some of the images in and used the new glitter glass around the edge of the "25". At first I didn't think this stamp was really my style, but I love the vintage look of these two cards.

Trees Three

I have had this set from Stampin' Up for a while now and haven't used it. It is retired and thought I just had to have it (I can't remember why!) I saw a card similar to this (probably on Splitcoast) and liked the simplicity. This is a quick easy card. I also love the chunky glitter (also Stampin' Up). This was one of the cards at my latest workshop. Thanks for stopping by!

Elf Cards

Hey! It's November! Where does the time go? I realized I haven't posted in a while (busy teaching and doing craft shows!) We had a full house last night for the Stamp-a-Stack workshop. Here are a few cards offered last night (don't forget, there is another workshop Saturday, November 13 (10 am - 1:30 pm). These are mostly "punch art" with just a little stamping. The pattern paper is just stuff I had already (in holiday paper packs). I was just looking for some fun stripe designs. Both of these cards are made with Stampin' Up dies. The elf feet is the "Top Note" die and the elf face card base is made with the "Scallop Circle" die. Punches for these cards include the ornament punch, boho blossoms punch, 5 petal punch, tag punch, and large oval punch (all Stampin' Up). Tag stamp is from "Grateful Greetings" and sentiment is from the set "Best Yet" (both Stampin' Up). Thanks for checking in and I will be posting more cards from the workshop tomorrow!
