Simple Snow Swirled

I hope you have all recovered from your Thanksgiving festivities. My family had a very nice get together, but I am looking forward to next year when my daughter and her family will be moving back. They have been gone for almost 6 years. Today, I am sharing with you a simple card made with the stamp set "Snow Swirled." This is a very simple card to create. Once again, this is not one of my favorite cards. Even with the rhinestone jewels it did not impress me. You will have to tell me what you think.

In case you are wondering, I used the sentiment from the retired stamp set "The Sounding Joy." It could be easily replaced with another. I have seen a lot of people use the "Believe" sentiment on cards using snowflakes. I like it, but I didn't have that one. I wonder if I had layered the "Joy," instead, making it one layer, I would have liked it better. The only other thing you really need to know about this card is the colors I used. They are marina mist, night of navy, and shimmery white!
Hmmmm......I was thinking maybe I should take this card and put the "Joy" on a layer and work with it until I like it. Then I will repost it to see if you like it better too. I think I am going to do that. Just for fun!!
Thanks again for stopping by my little section of the blogging world. Have a wonderful day!

Now go-n-stamp!!

Come to Bethlehem Christmas

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my blogging visitors and followers. I appreciate the fact that you visit my blog. With Christmas coming very soon, I wanted to share with you over the next week or two some Christmas cards. The first one I am sharing is the reason why we even celebrate Christmas. There would be no Christmas if it had not been for Jesus being sent here by His Father to save whoever chooses Him. For this card I chose "Come to Bethlehem" as the stamp set.

I really love the deeper shade of red for Christmas, myself. For this reason, I chose cherry cobbler, along with soft suede, and naturals ivory card stock. For the texture you need a Big Shot and the square lattice textured impressions embossing folder. I went around the edges with soft suede and a stampin' sponge. The ribbon is 1/2" seam binding in cherry cobbler. Lastly, I used the itty bitty banners framelits die stamped with the sentiment.
Once again, Happy Thanksgiving! I pray you have a wonderful time gathering together with friends and family.
Now go-n-stamp!!

Flowering Flourishes Thank You

Finally, putting another card on here. This is the last card I had made for my thank you card class. I decided not to post one of them because I did not like it all that well. I did like this one though. I hope you do to.

For cardstock I chose midnight muse, soft suede, and whisper white. The stamp set is flowering flourishes and the sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes. For punches I used boho blossoms, dotted scallop ribbon border, and itty bitty shapes punch pack. You need a big shot or something comparable, and the beautiful wings embosslits die. The only ink color I used was soft suede. For embellishments I used pearl basic jewels.
This is a very easy card to create, as long as, you have the supplies. If you ever need any you can purchase them from my Stampin' Up! website or use the order button on the left side of my blog page.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.
