Lovely as a Tree Winter Cards

Here are the Cards we made in my Local Class for the Month of December.  Really Love how they turned out.  You could easily make into Christmas Cards or any occasion.
My first card using early espresso for the base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Folded to 4 1/4. Has gol glimmer at 4 x 5 1/4 then using crumb cake layer that is 3 3/4 x 5 you will stamp with the background stamp hardwood, when layering this on the glimmer you want to place your ribbon at the bottom first and then use tear away tape  or some people have said the fast fuse will work because very little tapes will stick well.   Then I stamped my tree on the  stitched circle which was applied to a glimmer scalloped circle.  This was popped up.  I used the white Reinker placed on a block that was watered down a little and a paint brush and flicked drops to look like snow on the card.  Then stamped on my banner I punched out for the sentiment.

Second card is on Whisper White base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Folded to 4 1/4. Has silver foil at 4 x 5 1/4.  Then white layer 3 3/4 x 5 has been run with Softly Falling embossing folder.  Layered on top, after applying silver ribbon to top.  Stamping the row of trees to small Sheet of Thick whisper whit 4 1/2 x 2 1/2.  Mask off the bottom of the trees from snow layer below and then begin sponging above the snow layer with blues, I used island indigo, navy blue, marina mist.  Remove mask and cut panels into thirds at 1 7/16.  Place on layer of silver foil 4 3/4 x 2 3/4.  Pop up on white embossed piece. Place sentiment if like.

Hi Everyone, Can’t believe the year is almost over. I am putting up this years last Treats using Carol of Christmas Bundle.   I just had  to make a couple more Christmas Cards, but the dies are perfect for Year Round!   This set is great to keep for a head start on next year too!



First card is A2. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded in half at 4 1/4.  Champaign foil paper is gorgeous and perfect for the holidays, cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Quilted DSP is cut first to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, place die with moon and stars at the top to die cut.    Then using Versa Mark  stamp saying on DSP. Cover with White embossing powder, shake off and heat with heat tool.   Then attach this piece on tp of champagne piece.    Cut 2 different slopes out whisper white piece that is 5 1/4 wide.  To represent snow slopes.  Attach trees and deer to the slopes to finish off the card.

Second card also very vanilla base A2 size as above.  This time the next layer is old olive 5 1/4 x 4  is embossed with Quilt Top Embossing Folder.  Next layers are Real Read 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 and quilted DSP 2 1/2 x 5 1/4.  Before attaching this to old olive take the Quilted ribbon and place across middle of the front of the DSP layer and tape each end to back sides real red.  Then attach layers to old olive and attach all to card base if not done so already.  Stamp sentiment on label with real red and place on front with dementionals.  I used white accents that I colored with old olive blend marker,  placed on each side of label.  Take another piece of ribbon and tie knot to side of label.   Completes card.

November Sweet Treats with Painted Harvest

November is upon us.  I am wanting to make Christmas cards but feel the need for Thanksgiving, so this month I am mixing it up.  One Christmas and one Thankful but both use this wonderful flower stamp.   This stamp resembles a sunflower, but can be used for so much more.  This month my Sweet Treat is using it as a Sunflower and a Christmas Wreath.  So for all those customers purchasing $25 or more using the hostess code (do not use code for purchase over $150) you will receive this packet as a gift from me along with a homemade thank you card.  Also the video below shows how I made the cards. 

Christmas card is  Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card fold in half at 4 1/4.   Garden Green layer is 4 x 5 1/4, and was ran thru the embossing folder Softly Fallen.  Pattern Paper is Be Merry 3 x 5 1/4.   I stamped my wreath with Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green on Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut out. Bow is made out of Red Tinsle ribbon.   The reindeer and Merry Christmas sentiment inside are from the Merry Mistletoe.

Thankful card is from Very Vanilla  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 fold in half at 4 1/4. Lemon Lime layer is 4 x 5 1/4 and was ran thru leaf embossing folder.  Cajun Craze layer is 2 3/4 x 5 1/4, pattern paper 2 1/2.  Sunflower is stamped out on Very Vanilla with So Saffron  and Cajun Craze.  Leaves are stamped with Garden Green on Lemon Lime cardstock.   Banner is cut at 1 in and had cut end and stamped with Cajun Craze or any other color you choose.  Position Leaves where you choose.
 
Here is another Idea I cased from my fellow Team Member Randi,  to show you how versatile this stamp can be.

Coffee Gift Card Holder

So as I got Blown away at my Craft Fair Today, my parents canopy actually broke in the wind. I decided I might as well upload a video.  I realized that I had not uploaded this video, so I am not going to do all the dementions like usual here, they are the same as my Christmas Gift Card  Holders done in July.  Also discussed in the Video,  Super easy to make.   I do sometimes put more videos out than this blog, just easier to do at times I guess.  I do have my Monthly Class this Next week for my local folks we are going to make a Candle and a card using Colorful Seasons, so I will try to show you all also.   So please do follow along, I may not post all the time, but at least a few times a month. As always the store is open 24/7, and orders of $25 or more using host code get my Sweet Treat for the Month!

Enjoy the Video!

Birthday Delivery Birthday Card for Noah

Well this week I need a Birthday Card for my Grandson Noah who turns 3.  Of Course I had to use my favorite Birthday set from the annual Catalog Birthday Delivery.  The Wolf is my favorite stamp in this stamp he is so cute, so he will be the star of this tri fold Card.






This card starts out as a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Whisper White cardstock.   I scored the long side at 2 in, and 6 1/4.  Then choose the color you would like for your solid layering piece, large inside is 4 x 5 1/4, inside panels and outside panels are (one of each) 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 and 2 x 5 1/4.  (I choose different solid colors for this but you can change it up.  Lots of great colors in this suite to choose from.  Then the pattern pieces for the pattern you will need one of each inside and outside panels 1 1/2 x 5, and 1 3/4 x 5.    Then it comes to layering all the pieces together.  After doing these pieces you will cut out large scallop circle and regular circle.  I stamped out the wolfe and colored him with the markers.  you can stamp out the banner and stamp the sentiment or use the balloons. and place him in the circle.  I attached the circle on the left side, but only put glue on half the circle as to not glue the whole circle down because you want the card to open.  You are welcome to watch the video below. 

Here are supplies used.  Store is open 24/7.  www.shanasweets.stampinup.net

Spooky Cat Swapping this Month

I started my Swap 6 group back up this month.  If you can ever participate in swaps they are great!  This was a perfect swap for me because you swap 6 cards for 6 months by the 6th of the month.  Easy Peasy!   I love my team swaps but usually have to make 20-25 cards for that, and don't always feel the love for that.  But I can't rember which team mate it was, but it was on group page that I saw this card,  I varied up the papers, but I loved the idea.  I had to have this punch the moment I saw it, because my daughters nickname is Cat!   This punch will be great outside Halloween, I have seen some great designs colored, stamped, designer paper.  Ideas are really limitless.  But for now having fun with the Spooky Designer Series paper also and made this fun card and lots of Cats!

A2 sized card,  5 1/2 x 8 /12 folded at 4 1/4 of very vanilla. Layer a base of basic black 4 x 5 1/4.  Then build your layer of pumpkin pie 3 3/4 x 5 with 1 1/4  x 5 layer of dsp at the top and a 1 x 5 in that you will stamp with your sentiment, I used trick or treat and the mouse, but Happy Halloween is in the stamp set also.   I tucked this piece up under the dsp, so less than an inch is actually showing.   Then I took the crochet trim across the seam and wrapped securing behind the pumpkin pie.  Then you tape all this to the black.   Now I stamped the cat image from the stamp set on a vanilla card stock and punched it out then punched out 4 more cats from various dsp patterns.  The cat on the dsp will cut with the punch.   I fussy cut a hat from the dsp.  The glue the cats across the bottom, layering them slightly over each other.  Placing the hat on one of them, with a dementuonal.  Below is the video also.

Here will be the supplies used. And the store is always open 24/7.
