Wrapped in Plaid, Pine Tree Punch

Today I tackled a spinner card and it was such FUN to do. Yes, a bit tricky, but after doing a Pinterest search for a video, I figured it out. One thing to remember is whatever you want to spin, it mustg be a reversible image. There are some things I have to learn about this new computer too, like how to load my own video onto this site… And this card with the spinning tree is cute! Until I learn how to do that – still shots of the card are what I have.

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler. Additional card stock used is Whisper White, Shaded Spruce, Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP. Other supplies include: Pine Tree Punch (a carry over item to 2020 BTW!), and 2 3/8″ Stitched circle die, clear thread, Tear ‘n Tape, Tombow glue and Toile Tidings Glitter enamel dots, and finally Glimmer dots from the Christmastime Is Here Suite.

Online Extravaganza + Card

What a great last two days of stamping and creating! Yesterday it was eye pillows for our daughter who is teaching a class about Essential Oils (Young Living to be exact). I made 7 and they turned out so cute :o) Sorry – no picture of those. Today it was making a birthday card for my brother-in-law and I used some new paper from the Mini Catalogue – whee! The paper is from the Clubhouse Suite… this Designer Series Paper is called Country Club DSP and is very masculine – golf themed on one side, plaids and argyle on the other. Here’s the card I created:

And here are the stats:
* Crumb Cake CS – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 1 1/2 x 5 for banner (trimmed w/ the Triple Banner punch
* Whisper White CS – 4 x 5 1/4 (cut one for inside as well) + 2 1/4″ square for 2″ circle punch
* Country Club DSP – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 + 3/4 x 5 1/4 for inside + piece for envelope flap (2 1/4 x 6)

Happy stamping!

Colorful Seasons

Hi Folks! Amy Koenders posted pictures on her blog yesterday of team members cards they had prepared. I’ve had several questions about mine and since I hadn’t posted info about it – it seems appropriate to do so now.

Begin with Grapefruit Grove cardstock cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.

Using the stitched squares framelits, cut 3.

The large leaf in Colorful Seasons bundle was cut from Perennial Essence DSP, then the “topper” for that leaf was cut from copper foil and adhered using Tombow glue. Easy easy and it gives a gorgeous effect! Using your fingers, gently curl the leaves, cuz leaves are never flat, right? Adhere the leaf with dimensionals. I usually use at least two for a more secure holding. The cording was from the Nature’s Twine set, which is a bundle of four. I simply took my pick it tool and separated the threads to give this frayed look. Three little Metallic pearls were added for a bit of glamor. The sentiment comes from Gather Together, a brand new stamp set/ bundle in the Holiday catalogue, and was stamped in Gray Granite.

For the inside, I kept it really simple. The leaf was again cut from the Perennial Essence paper and adhered with Tombow glue. The envelope was decorated using stamps from the Gather Together stamp set – Grapefruit Grove for the pumpkins and Gray Granite for the sheaf spray on the front.

If you do not have a demonstrator and would like to have a catalogue, please contact me! Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day.
