365 Cards: Nuts About You

Hard to believe how fast October has gone by! This week I wanted to break away from the holidays for a moment and share a fun love themed card I made for my husband for our 10th Anniversary back at the beginning of the month! :)


Can I pause for a second to say how obsessed I am with this wood grain patterned paper?! If you know me, you know I love the woodgrain. A LOT. And I just had to use this paper with this set! :)


The hearts were punched using the Owl punch! Another quick, easy card that didn't take very long to put together at all! :)

365 Cards: You Are a Treat...

Another Halloween idea to share with you this week! :)


I love this set and I must have sat there for thirty minutes trying to figure out how to turn this fun treat packaging stamp set into something that would work great for a card.... I finally came up with this!


To make the "you are" part of the sentilment, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig and Basic Black Stampin' Marker to piece together the words I wanted from one of the sentiment stamps in set:


An easy way to add a few words when the sentiment doesn't quite say what you want it to! :)

Ten Years of Blogging.

Hard to believe it all started with this post ten years ago from today!  For me, this has always been and continues to be a fun place to share random tidbits, recipes, and crafts.

365 Cards: Wishing You a Happy Halloween

I can't believe it's already October! Time to start thinking about all the fun things to make for Halloween! So here is my first Halloween card this year :)


Isn't that owl just the cutest?! I used our new Boo to You Framelits to cut out that cute little owl and pumpkin! There is even a coordinating owl stamp to match that framelit!

I finished the card off with our Washi Label punch -- it's the perfect way to add a sentiment to your projects!

365 Cards: All is Calm, All is Bright

Welcome to another JAX Starz Blog Hop! This month our challenge is to make something for the holidays! Since I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to bust out some Christmas stamps, I made a Christmas card to share today!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Rose Ann Marr's blog.  You can follow the full blog hop lineup below to move along from blog to blog, so you can see all of the new projects.


That cute little deer? He's a cut out from an awesome piece of Designer Series Paper! :)


A quick bow made using two pieces of Cherry Cobbler Thick Baker's Twine and this card was done in less than five minutes!

Some Stampin' Tips:

  • Black, White + a little pop of color. Sometimes that is all you need to keep a card simple and quick to make! In this instance, I stuck with black, white and grey for my background, then layered on my handcut deer and used Cherry Cobbler for the rest!
  • Simple Layers. One of my favorite tricks is to layer on top of the card base rather than stamp directly on it -- it gives the card a little extra dimension and, if you make a mistake, you don't have to toss a whole card base!
  • Fussy Cutting. That's how I got that cute little deer! It's the fancy crafting terminology for cutting out something by hand. There is actually a sheet of patterned paper filled with cute little deer just like this guy and I was dying to cut one out for a card!
Alright, that's all I have for today's hop..... the next stop is Cari Verschueren on this month's Jax Starz Blog Hop! Make sure you go check out all the fantastic ideas... I just know that everyone will have some amazing ideas to share today. Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next time! :)
