Single Layer Christmas Card

The last few days I have been posting holiday cards that are the same but with a small twist to them. I just wanted to show the versatility of one stamp set. Where two cards cards can be made and with a few accessory changes the card can have a slight different look to it.

Christmas Petals A Plenty

I am loving the embossing folders and my big shot right now. I love how a lot of them just coordinate with the holidays. So right now I am stuck on using my embossing folders. I used the same embossing folder, two different stamps from one stamp set, and a few different accessories and have two different looks.

The greeting stamp that was used is new to my collection but you can beat having four different holiday stamps. This greeting stamp set is endless.

I cased this card design from Kitkatt55 I didn't use the exact same accessories that Kat did. Thanks for the design layout. Use can use any color that you want. Christmas just doesn't have to be red and white.

Cardstock: Whisper White and Real Red

Ink: Basic Black

This card was made in less then 10 minutes. I do believe the longest part was getting the circles lined up. No, I am not that girl to pull out the ruler and make sure that it is spaced out to. I like to attempt to eye ball it and get it right. I enjoy simple and stress free stamping. I love just doing simple things!!!!!

What Is On The Table

My gal pal Rose came down to visit with me last weekend because she has moved away and I haven't seen her in months. Rose and I just had a very easy going day nothing really planned, but to enjoy each another. Well in the process of the visiting what happened we began to stamp. Rose, brought a few of her embossing folders with her that I don't own so I could emboss some cardstock. I wanted to make a masculine card for a good friend that is under that weather. The supplies we had were very limited. This is why I titled this card what is on the table? Rose used what she had in front of her literally.

Cardstock: Espresso, Basic Grey, Old Olive, and Natural White

Stamp: Daffodil Stamp From Michaels & Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU)

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Chocolate Chip & Old Olive Markers, Gold Brads, Modern Label Extra Large, Big Shot, and Square Lattice.
Technique: Sponging

Rose put this card together in a matter of minutes. I love to see Rose Stamping blood flow.

Thank Rose for being my friend.

Christmas In May

Hello All:

Who says that you can't have Christmas all year round. Char had told me earlier in the week that she had a little something for me and that I was going to laugh. Last Sunday Char stopped by my house for a quick moment. When Char came to the door she was hiding something behind her back and was laughing so of course I started laughing. When we finally stopped laughing Char handed me a wrapped present and we laughed again. The package was about the size of 11 X 14 picture frame. So I thought Char had a picture made of herself, Rose and me and decided to give it to me as a gift. But guess what it wasn't a picture in a frame it was a Scor-Pal. Yes, I know many of you have had theirs forever but I just received mines from my stamping pal and I thought it was great. This was my Christmas gift from Char in May. So once again who says you can't have Christmas all year long.

Thanks Char you made my Sunday.

Summer Mini Catalog Is Here

Hello All:

The Summer Mini Catalog has arrived and there are a lot of new and exciting items in the catalog. You can order from this catalog beginning May 1st - August 31, but you don't want to wait until August to place your order.

I am personally excited about the new wheels that have been reinvented. You can use three wheels with one jumbo handle and get a great effect. I should have my order by the end of the week and will be able to post my creation with the new wheels.

Also if you are a punch junkie like I am there is a new punch on page 23.

Have you ever just needed one stamp that perhaps said happy birthday and not the entire stamp set. Well there are a few a la carte stamps on page 31.

Click the link above and enjoy looking at the new summer mini catalog.
