Using the same card idea as the post on 11/16/09, I changed the color of the card base to Old Olive. I like this one better than the Real Red, because I can see the background stamping more clearly. I used the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper available in the Holiday Mini until January 4, 2010. The flocking on this is so pretty! The stamp set, Delightful Decorations and the Ornament punch are also in that same mini. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, a very versatile set. I used Whisper White card stock to punch the ornament cap. You can see how I did that below. You can use this punch to make a vase. Just don't insert the card stock all the way in. Then it looks like a vase. I have seen other uses for this punch like making flowers. Great punch to have around. Of course, I love all my punches and don't think you can have too many. LOL The white line is drawn with the Signo gel pen and a ruler. Hope you have a great stampin' day!

Christmas is my favorite holiday. Today's card is a simple card to make. I got this idea from Stampin' Success, a monthly magazine Stampin' Up! provides to its demonstrators. I used Delightful Decorations stamp set, Real Red and Whisper White card stock, Old Olive, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip inks. The white line is made with the White Gel Pen Stampin' Up! sells. I use this pen often. I love that I can use it in my scrapbooks on dark background papers. This would be a great card to make lots for all your friends and family.

I love this paper. The flocked texture feels and look so pretty! This is a very simple project to put together. I used our Whisper White organza ribbon, Hostess stamp set Christmas Punch, scallop oval punch, Ruby Red and Old Olive markers. What a cute little gift to hand out with candies or other small goodies inside. Have a great stampin' day!

I cased this card by Ilina Crouse on her blog, My Creations. Her card is so pretty. I love her color combination.
Anyway on to my card. I love the Top Note Sizzix die exclusive sold through Stampin' Up! I use my Big Shot a lot. I love all the things I can do with it, like the textured Night of Navy card stock in the card. That is from Texture Plates Kit#4 available in the current Stampin' Up! catalog. The stamp set is Thoughts and Prayers. I used the wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and tied Hemp Twine around it and through the button. The button is in the Button Latte collection. I used our corner rounder punch on the Night of Navy and Kraft card stock. The other card stock is Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip. Ink is Stampin' Up!'s Chocolate Chip Classic ink pad. Hope you enjoy the card. Have a wonderful day!

Berry Christmas is available in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalog. There are so many great sets in that Mini. You can view the Holiday Mini by clicking on the icon in my right side bar. Just scroll down and click on the link. This card is for a sketch challenge on Mary Jo Price-William's Technostamper blog. I turned the sketch on the side.
I used the Stampin' Up! Perfect Details Texturz Plate on the Rich Regal piece. The white dots on it are from the White Gel Pen Stampin' Up! sells. I also used that pen on the fake stitching above the Merry Christmas sentiment. The sentiment is heat embossed with White Detail embossing powder. I tired to add Crystal Effects on the dots in the center, but it ran together and I stamped another one. I thought Diamond Dust would look good on them, but had already put the card together and didn't want to get it on the other pieces.
Ribbon is from Elemental Ribbon Originals. Stamp set is Berry Christmas. Card stock is Rich Regal, Rose Red, So Saffron, and Whisper White. Hope you have a wonderful day!

I wanted to show you the beautiful shimmer on the first card. I took an old Stampin' Mist bottle and rinsed it out. Then I added alcohol and a small amount of the Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint. You need a fine mist bottle to make this work. It is so beautiful in real life. I wish you could see it. The shimmer is hard to photograph.

Old Olive marker, Real Red and Old Olive Classic Ink Pads, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Brushed Silver card stock, Mistletoe Ribbon Originals, Fine Cosmo glitter.

I made this card for my mother-in-law's birthday. I heat embossed the Medallion stamp (Item# 115223 $17.95 US) using Versamark ink and Detail White embossing powder on Bermuda Bay card stock. I used a Whisper White Basic Jumbo Grommet on the center of the Medallion. Tied a bow with the Whisper White Organza ribbon and adhered with a glue dot. I used the Stampin' Up! Perfect Details Texturz Plate on the Soft Suede and Real Red card stock. The base is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" Whisper White card stock. She loved it and so did I!

To make the sentiment pennant (LOL it rhymes), I cut a piece of Whisper White 1/4" wide by 2 1/4" (I think) long. Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy. Holding the 1 1/4" square punch upside down and aligning the corner of the punch at the end of the strip, I punched to get the look of a pennant. Then I added ink around the edges of the pennant using the ink pad.
I used the stack in the Big Shot which I talked about in an earlier post. It makes a huge difference on the way the texture looks. When making the background card stocks, make sure to align the design on both card stocks.
This is for our oldest son whose birthday is Tuesday. I will share another card I made using this set tomorrow. Our middle son was born three years and a day after our oldest. I went into labor on Randy's birthday, but Bobby didn't officially make his entrance into the world until 7 am the next day. When we went to the hospital in labor with Bobby, the doctor and nurses were happy to see us. We were the only ones there and they said there was nothing on TV. LOL Funny what memories we have.
