Baby it's cold outside!

Still stampin away! I love this snowflake patterned paper from Die Cuts With A View that I used as my background. This card is made from SU Pixie Pink CS. I used Bazzill Red Robin CS and a white piece of Bazzill CS for the borders. I cut the white borders using Spellbinders Nestabilities scalloped rectangle die. (one of my favorites!) I really have been into embossing lately, so you will probably get tired of it! I just love the way it looks! All images are stamped with SU stamps including the Perfect Presentation set, inked with VersaMark chalk ink, then embossed with Jo-Ann Craft Essentials clear powder. I then cut the scalloped circles using Cuttlebug Flower dies out of SU Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Pixie Pink and Bazzill Red Robin CS. Paper piercing the scalloped flower edges just gives a bit more detail. I applied the final embellishments: Making Memories crystal brads and SU silver cord to finish off the card.
Stay Warm!

The clock is ticking!
I have been busy, stamping the night away, making more Christmas cards for my buddies! This card is made using SU Old Olive CS. Bazzill Red Robin CS is used to make the borders and one of the scalloped circles. The white scalloped border and Old Olive rectangle is made with a Spellbinders Nestabilities rectangular die. I stamped all the images using SU Perfect Presentation stamp set images with VersaMagic inks then embossed them using Jo-Ann Craft Essentials clear powder on SU Whisper White CS. Using a 7/8" EK Success circle punch, I punched the pointsettia images out, then adhered them on the various colored Cuttlebug Flower die cut pieces. I used SU Certainly Celery, Pink Passion, and Old Olive CS. I jazzed up the flower embellishments with Making Memories crystal brads, some paper piercing, and added a bow using SU silver cord. The patterned CS is from a Die Cuts With A View Christmas stack. Another simple yet sophisticated card, I think? Hope you like it!

Deck the Halls 0

Time To Deck the Halls!
I am going to kick off my holiday card season with this SU Season of Joy set. The vibrance of the images are very eye pleasing. This was achieved by stamping with VersaMagic chalk inks and embossed with clear Jo Ann powder on SU Whisper White CS. I layered the image on SU Pink Passion CS then on a scalloped rectangle cut with Spellbinders Nestablilites die in SU Old Olive CS. For a little extra touch, I added a bow using a piece of SU silver cord at the bottom of the rectangle. The patterned background CS came from a Die Cuts With A View Christmas stack. I think the colors all compliment each other so well. The snowflakes and flower are stamped with SU images, embossed, then punched out with the use of an EK Success 3/4" circle and 1/2" circle. All the flowers are cut using the Cuttlebug Flower set and paper pierced. The Making Memories crystal and silver brads add a little something extra! The white scalloped edging is made using the Spellbinders scalloped rectangle set and layered on top SU Bravo Burgandy CS. This card is made with SU Old Olive CS. I am off to a good start!

Glitter Galore!
Christmas is right around the corner! I have been gathering all my Christmas stamps to begin the holiday stamping frenzy. This card appears to be simple, yet I think it is very elegant. This card is stamped on SU Tempting Turquoise CS, layered with White Die Cuts With A View CS that is embossed with Cuttlebug a2 snowflakes embossing folder. The blue glittery CS came from a Die Cuts With A View Christmas stack. I stamped the tree image with VersaMark ink, then applied SU Heat and Stick powder, then sprinkled with Martha Stewart silver glitter. I used the SU Cute and Curly stamp set and punch to make the Merry Christmas tag. The image was stamped using VersaMark, then embossed with Martha Stewart silver powder. I finished off the card with a couple Making Memories brads and SU silver cord. I think this card is very shimmery and glittery!
Merry Stampin!

Give Thanks Card 0

Happy Thanksgiving!
Wow, I can not believe it is turkey time already! I made this card to wish my family and friends a happy thanksgiving holiday. This card is made from SU Mellow Moss CS with another beautiful paper layered on top from Heidi Grace. I really love the variety of colors in this patterned paper that match so well with SU colors! It screams East Coast fall foliage! The SU More Mustard was embossed using Cuttlebug emboss a2 pumpkin harvest embossing plate. I cut the biggest scalloped circle out of SU Bravo Burgandy CS, the next layer was punched with EK Success 2" scalloped circle punch, and the innermost circle was punched with EK Success 1 3/4" punch. The stamped "Happy Thanksgiving"image was made with a Studio G $1 stamp that I purchased at Michael's (I love those $1 bins)! I then cut the smaller scalloped circles with the Cuttlebug Flower die set using the following SU CS colors: Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, and Close to Cocoa. For the final touch, I stamped the leaf images from the Autumn Stamp Kit by The Paper Company Studio with The Essential Glue Pad, sprinkled on Martha Stewart glitter, punched the images out using EK Success 3/4" circle punch, assembled the pieces with 3M double sided tape, and attached the JoAnn Scrap Essentials antique brads. I hope my friends are happy to receive this one!

Bitty Boo Too Halloween Card 2

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 25, 2008 @ 8:29 PM | , , , , ,

This Halloween card is my first card posted on my new blog! I am so excited I finally got it together! Hopefully, my blog will only get better! I made this Halloween card for my co-workers and friends.
This card is made from SU Only Orange CS. The SU Lovely Lilac borders are with the Cuttlebug a2 embossing border with love. Other SU CS used was: Summer Sun, Certainly Celery, Green Galore and Elegant Eggplant.
The stamped images are from the SU Bitty Boo Too stamp set on SU Whisper White CS using VersaMagic Chalk inks and embossed with JoAnn Craft Essentials clear embossing powder. I punched the images out with a EK Success 3/4" square punch then layered each using EK Success 1" square punched CS.
I pierced around the square scalloped edges then adhered the images and squares together with 3M double sided tape. With all my pieces assembled, I then adhered them to the Heidi Grace orange striped CS. My final steps included attaching two black JoAnn Craft Essential brads and stamping the sentiment on the inside.
Hope you like it! Trick or Treat!
