    Christmas Cards with Washi and Cricut

    It's time for some more Christmas card inspiration!

    Today I want to share a couple more cards we made at my class last week.  

    Christmas Cheer- For this card, I used up some of my Washi Tape stash to make a tree.  Chocolate Woodgrain, Gold Polka Dot & Sparkle n shine.   I added some sparkles & a Gold sequin to finish the card off.  I stamped Christmas Cheer from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set

    This reindeer card was inspired by Close To My Heart.  They created cards like this for an Operation Smile Auction and an event I recently attended.  The background of this card is a Paper Fundamentals pattern.  The reindeer was cut from Cricut Artistry, and adorned with some colored sparkles & gems.  I stamped Christmas Greetings from the Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp set. 

    Check back in tomorrow to hear all about my Black Friday Steals & Deals!

    Picture My Life Christmas Cards

    Last week I shared with you a couple of Christmas Cards that I created with White Pines Papers, White Pines Picture My Life Cards and Paper Fundamentals.  

    Today I want to share with you another of the cards we created!

    For this NOEL card, I took the Picture My Life Card and trimmed it down a little.  I used the Ruby Paper Fundamentals paper, and cut a bow using Cricut Artiste.  The white background paper is embossed with the Cascading Stars Folder.  

     Joy! This card was created similar to the "Peace" card I shared last week.  I cut the Picture My Life Card to fit, and cut some of the borders from other cards as accents.  I used the New England Ivy Paper Fundamentals for the background.  I added Silver Shimmer Trim and sparkles to finish the card off.

    Picture My Life cards are not just for scrapbooking, they make great cards too!

    Stampers With An Attitude Blog Hop- White Pines

    Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

    Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

    If you are coming here from Wendy's Blog you are on the right path. 

    This month we are featuring the the White Pines Collection. #ctmhwhitepines

    Today I want to share with you two cards that I created using the White Pines Papers, White Pines Picture My Life Cards  and Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Pack

    On this first card, I used the Paper Fundamentals Ruby paper for the background.  I used a White Pines Picture My Life card (peace) for the main focus.  Then I took 2 other cards that had printed borders on them and cut part of the border into a banner and placed at the top of the Peace card.  I added some gold shimmer trim and gold sequins to finish it off.  
    VERY simple!

    This is my favorite card :)  I created a starburst pattern for the background of my card from White Pines Papers and Paper Fundamentals.  I placed some gold foil tape at the bottom edge.  Then I added a Picure my life card to the center, and stamped "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas" on it (retired stamp set).  I cut 2 Christmas Trees from Cricut Artistry, and stamped them with the White Pines Scrapbooking stamp set in Fern ink, and placed them on the PML card.  

    Using Picture My Life Cards in your card making is super fun and easy!  Think outside the box, cut them up, stamp on them, add elements to them.

    Today I would like to share with you my entry in the Fresno Fair Home Arts Exhibits- Scrapbooking Around Fresno.  This layout is of my kids and I at the Pumpkin Patch last year.  I earned a Second Place ribbon for this one.  

    For this layout, I used the (retired) Scaredy Cat papers & Compliments, adding some Purple Glitter Paper too.  

    If you like this layout, take a look at the scrapbook kit that I used to create it.  I have ONE kit left... let me know if you want it!

    Watercolor LOVE

    It's Watercolor Paints mania around here!!!  

    Today's card was created using the La Vie En Rose papers & Compliments, along with the beautiful stamp set Blossoming Expressions. I finished the card off with a Gold Bling Gem!  I just love the color combo of red, back and white.  Throw a little blue (watercolor paint) in there and it gives it a retro love feel!  

    Are you loving these watercolor cards???  I have a couple more that I'll share with you next week, after my class!

    Watercolor Paper Garden

    Did you know that Close To My Heart has come out with a Watercolor Paint set???

    I absolutely LOVE playing with these fun paints!  

    I had a great time playing with paint to create this card.  I simply used a thin brush, and long vertical strokes to create a "grass" effect.  Then I tore the paper and layered it.  

    The Paper Garden- September Stamp of the Month was the perfect addition to this card.  I love that the flowers coordinate with Cricut Artistry too :) I stamped them in new colors- Pomegranate and Eggplant.   I finished off the card with some of the awesome new Paper Fundamentals Black Glitter Assortments.  

    Don't forget the Stamp of the Month is available this month only.  It's just $5 with your $50 purchase.  

    I have a couple more watercolor cards to share with you, so make sure you check back :)

    Watercolor Wonder

    Did you know that Close To My Heart has come out with a Watercolor Paint set???

    I absolutely LOVE playing with these fun paints!  

    I feel like a kid again painting, it's exhilarating!!

    I will be sharing more cards with you this week... but here's the first:

    I used green watercolor to paint the bottom part of the card, then stamped it with "Don't let anyone dull your sparkle." from the Diamonds are Forever stamp set.  Then keeping with the Diamond theme, I cut a border of Diamonds from Cricut Artistry, along with the Fab title.  Black Glitter paper along with the Yellow Bokeh patterned paper from Kaleidoscope were perfect!

    Check back later this week to see some more watercolor cards :)
