Sleigh Ride in Wonderland

I then Die cut the sleigh and horse piece, then put some washi tape along the bottom. I stamped the sentiment from Six Sayings on a scrap strip of Whisper White in Lost Lagoon. I layered Delightful Dijon on a Tip Top Toupe cardbase, then layered all pieces and added rhinestones and the wooden snowflake from Snowflake Elements with some Gold Thread.

Made With Love Baby Card

It's all about STARS at Stampin' Royalty this week!

I decided to use one of my new stamp sets, Made With Love. 
There are so many cute images in that set!
As you can see, i decided to use the onesie image for the main focal point.
This card is easier than it looks. I just embossed the background panel using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, then used a strip of Whisper White and punched the Confetti Stars Border Punch across it, layered it on So Saffron, then Whisper White. I glued it on the back panel,tied a ribbon around it, then adhered it to the Soft Sky Cardbase. 
I die cut one circle in So Saffron, then a smaller one in Soft Sky. I stamped the onesie in Smoky Slate, then cut it out. I used my blender pens and Soft Sky & Daffodil Delight ink to color the image. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Whisper White and used Dimensionals to pop them up. 

Cardstock - Soft Sky, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink - Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate
Stamps - Made With Love
Accessories - Confetti Stars Border Punch, Soft Sky Ribbon, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, Blender Pens

Picture Inspiration!

For this one, i will admit that i was down to the wire in getting it done, so it was made rather quickly...
But it just goes to show that you can still make a cute card, even when you don't have a lot of time! 

I used the Oval punch to make the pumpkin pieces, and stamped the background in White Craft ink on Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I used the Boho Blossoms punch and the Tree Builder Punch to create the flowers. The sentiment is from an old retired set called Country Blessings.

Ink - Craft White, Cajun Craze (for sponging)
Cardstock - Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Stamps - Country Blessings, Bloom with Hope, 
Accessories - Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper, Boho Blossoms Punch, Tree Builder Punch, Oval Punch

Flurry of Wishes Pin-spiration!

The Theme for this weeks Stampin' Royalty is Pin-Spired!
That means we were to find inspiration on Pinterest! 

Here is the the card that inspired me, made by Melissa at Rubber FUNatics!

(Click HERE if you would like to pin this card too!)

Isn't that snowman on the pink just the CUTEST!?!?
I really loved the original card, but alas, did not have the proper pink, so i decided to do Real Red instead...

For this card i basically just made the elements with either a Circle Die, or hand cut, or punched out each part, then assembled the pieces.
If you make a card similar to this one, just be sure to stamp your panel BEFORE you run it through in the embossing folder... otherwise you won't get a good image :o)

Stamps - Flurry of Wishes
Ink - Basic Black, Real Red, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Cardstock - Real Red
Accessories - Silver Glimmer Paper, Silver Sequins, Snow Flurry Punch, Circle Die

Lighthearted Leaves Image Swap Card

Our local stamp group did a really fun swap at our last meeting...
We each chose a new stamp set we owned, took a half sheet of cardstock, and filled it with images from that stamp set. that way, we could take our swap home and punch out, cut out, etc., the images, and make whatever we like out of them!

This was the first card i made with my image swap!
I used my White Chalk Pen to color in some of the details on the leaves, cut them out, used my oval die to cut out the sentiment and put in eyelets.

Cardstock - So Saffron, Crushed Curry
Stamps - Lighthearted Leaves
Accessories - Eyelets, Gold Satin Ribbon

Wondrous Wreath Christmas Card

As you can see, that is the dominant theme for my card as well! The embossed background, the circle of the wreath, the berries on the wreath....
I really like the way it turned out, and it was actually pretty easy to put together. 
One note i will make is that for the "JOY" word, i cut out one in the Silver Glimmer Paper, then  2 using the Thick Whisper White cardstock, then glued them in layers to give the word some sturdiness. 

Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Pear Pizazz
Stamps - Wondrous Wreath
Accessories -  Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder,  Silver Glimmer Paper, Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies
