Ugly Sweater Anyone?

Ugly Sweater Anyone?

This card was created by Linda Black for the 50 Card swap using Oh What Fun Papers and C1729 Ugly Sweater.  The stamp set is funny, catching the humor of the ugly sweater fun of the holidays:

In addition to the stamp set and Oh What Fun papers, Linda embossed the sentiment with the Silver Tinsel Glitter Embossing Powder,

The cute little elves that adorn the sweaters are from the CTMH Cricut Collection Season of Joy!  These are the 3-D elves you can make with the cartridge.  Use the flatten feature, then print and cut!  How simple and fun is that?

I Think You’re Cute ;)

I Think You’re Cute 😉

Since we are talking about shaker cards and Grateful Heart paper (which I can’t seem to stock enough for at the crops), here a card, ‘You’re Cute” I made for the 50 Card Swap I host.  Be looking for some awesome guest artists over the next few months.    Here is the stamp set, A1225 I Kinda Like You $7.95 USD.

You’ll need these following products to create your own shaker cards:

 

Don’t you love the plaid?  It speaks of Fall weather and I’m so ready for it.  Here in MD, we are finally getting some fall weather.  The 80s of last week are the 50s of this week.

The shaker has enough sparkles to make the sound you need for a shaker, keep the insides moving around, and still read the inside saying!  I have found out less is more when it comes to shaker cards.

Stamp of the Month Fun

Stamp of the Month Fun!

Using both the Stamp of the Month S1810 Thanks and Giving and the paper collection, Grateful Heart, this card came together well.

I love the little leaves peaking out through the circles.  Use 3D foam tape to pop up the panel with the circles so you can get some great depth under the branches.

Use a spray pen with some sapphire reinker and water/alcohol mixed together to get the spray pattern.  It’s a wonderful thing to be able to create your own colors of spray to match whatever project you are working on.  Creating fun looks is really easy to do.  A word of caution.  Make sure to have the floor/area protected so clean up is easy!

The set is $18.95 or $5.00 with a qualifying purchase of $50.00.  When you do this, you’ll get the Kit of the Month for free!  Comes to you all pre-cut and ready to stamp along with Happy Mail and your choice of directions to several workshop.  You can have a lot of fun with this kit.
