One Layer CAS Merry Christmas





Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a fun little snowman scene for the Winnie & Walter June Color Challenge with Heather H.

At first glance, the palette and inspiration photo probably seems anything but Christmas, but I think it works. What do you think?


I was super-brave (for me!) and broke out of my usual mold with this card. Not only is it CAS, but it is also a One Layer Card. It even has a masculine feel to it.


Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Comfort + Joy stamp set
Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stamp set
Thrift store snowman stamp from a grab bag my son gave me
Versafine ink in Onyx Black

Father's Day Book Mark


Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a Bible bookmark I made for hubby as part of his Father's Day gift. I used a nifty Elizabeth Craft tag die set for the bookmark. It is so cool because you can make the tag any length and almost any width by cutting down the edges. The set includes a die for the scalloped top of the tag and variations you can use for the bottom. LOVE! You'll have to follow the link to see all the fun things that are included!


I stamped and heat embossed a scripture verse and then masked it before stamping the wood grain pattern. I removed the mask and heat embossed tone on tone with Versamark ink and clear powder. I edged my bookmark with Versamark ink and heat embossed the edges in gold. LOVE!!! 

I heat embossed the decorative perforations at the bottom of the tag by outlining the openings with an embossing pen and using the same gold powder. Reinforcements were cut from a scrap of DCWV Mercury Glass stack. A bit of ribbon from my crafty pal, Karen Ladd, finished it up. (Thanks, Karen!!)  I used my heat gun to slightly sear the ribbon ends to keep them from fraying.

I wrote a Happy Father's Day greeting on the back of the bookmark and was going to leave it at that....but in the end decided to use repositionable adhesive to attach it to a simple tall format card and still be easily removeable.



Products used include:
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Tags & More 7 - Vine die set
Clear Dollar Stamps - Psalm 37:3-5 (discontinued)
Recollections - Woodgrain stamp (discontinued)
Versafine Ink in Onyx Black
Clear embossing powder
Versamark Ink
Ranger - Embossing Powder
DCWV Scrap for card background
DCWV Scrap of Mercury Glass stack in gold for tag reinforcement
Grosgrain ribbon from stash
WOW! Embossing Pen - Clear

Hope you like my Father's Day project for hubby. Thank you for stopping by today!!!

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set

Cute Dinosaur BD Card for Young Boy



Hi, Friends.......

I am here with a happy little dinosaur card suitable for a young boy's birthday.  I don't often use my Mark's Finest Papers stamps anymore (since they sadly closed their doors), but I should because there are some nice ones in my stash!  This little dino set is a fun one.

I am entering this in the June Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge.  I don't own the rerun set (Scenery: Into the Woods) but I love the orange, purple, and green colors in  Kate's card HERE......which I amped up into brights for my card.  The background print on my dino panel reminds me of the woodsy outdoor backgrounds in the rerun set, too.  My dino is stamped, heat embossed, and hand cut from patterned paper in the long discontinued DCWV Kid-osaurus set.


Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts stamp set
Versafine ink in Imperial Purple
Mark's Finest Papers - Dino News stamp set (discontinued)

Young Men Graduation Cards


This is a companion cartoon to THIS ONE...lol...

Hi, Friends.......

Here are some more graduation cards for guys that I made for orders. I used the same embossing folder as on my last set HERE, but did a little cutting on the diagonal and used different stamps. I love the motivational and inspiring words from the A Creative Journey with Melissa - Awareness Ribbon Set #1 stamp set. I think they work great with the graduation theme.


I made two color variations, so please tell me which you like better. I like the blue one a little better, I think.

Dry Embossed Graduation Card



An oldie, but a fave.....  Empty auditorium, indeed!  lol....
Hi, Friends......

I am here with a masculine graduation card that I made for an order. I love this Unity grab bag sentiment for grads. I used my new graduation cap embossing folder and put the sentiment at a jaunty angle to echo the caps being tossed in the air. The non-fussy nature of this card makes it perfect for a young man.


Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (stitched rectangle panel)
Darice - Graduation Hat Background embossing folder
Core'dinations Core Essentials - Darks
Core'dinations Sand-it Gadget
Unity grab bag "Don't Follow Your Dreams" stamp (I am still scouring their webstore for the set that this came from originally. If you know, please tell me in the comments!)
Scraps from my stash for sentiment panel and mat
Versafine ink in Onyx Black
Here's another one of this card in a different color with the sentiment straight.  Which do you like better?  I think I like the look of the green one a little better because I like straight clean lines.  I struggle mightily with getting things lined up straight.  So when I intentionally angle things, it makes me feel like I am cheating or didn't do it right.  lol....


 

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your nice comments.  I hope you have a great week!!

Buffalo Check Baby Card


Hi, Friends......

Getting one last entry in under the wire for the Winnie & Winnie May Color Challenge. Look at the lovely color palette!




I hardly ever use stencils, but I recently chose this wonderful W&W Buffalo Check stencil as part of a prize.  (THANKS, Shay!!) and I have been wanting to use it with the sweet Baby Cutaway.  I finally got the chance.  I did my best to match the palette using my pigment inks for sponging through the stencil. I love the soft look these inks bring to the card!

Winnie & Walter - Buffalo Check Creative Screenings
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set

Trying to get this in under the wire for my last entry in Mrs. A's 100th Butterfly Challenge! Each fortnight (this time it was 2 fortnights for the big event!) she gives us a fun butterfly wheel of colors and themes to play with.

Hot Pink Hello with Butterflies


That's how I felt when I saw how off-center I matted the sentiment on this card!!!  I fixed it after I took the photo.  lol...


Hi, Friends......

I couldn't resist making another butterfly card for Mrs. A's special #100 Butterfly Challenge.  Each fortnight (this time it was 2 fortnights for the big event!) she gives us a fun butterfly wheel of colors and themes to play with.


 
For this card, I used one color (Hot Pink) plus one theme (heat embossing) plus butterflies.  I had this leftover background from a previous butterfly challenge entry HERE.   I die cut it into a panel and added a sentiment.  You can compare the two cards and tell me which one you like better!

Leafy Wreath Thanks



Hi, Friends......

I am back with one more entry for the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge #39 - Framed with Evelin T DesignsI don't own this set, so I drew inspiration from Crystal's lovely wreath card HERE.  

I also was inspired by the Winnie & Winnie May Color Challenge with this lovely palette: 

https://www.blog.winniewalter.com/2018/05/may-color-combo-with-heather-h-challenge.html


I cut my card base into a scalloped circle and added leafy elements and the layered sentiment die cuts over one of my leftover Easter egg dye backgrounds.  I added a couple of sweet birds for fun.

I also am entering this into the Unstampabelles - 1-2-3 Challenge.  I have used 1 word for the sentiment, 2 birds, and 3 each of the gold leaves and green leaves.  It has been great fun using Susan's formula for her wonderful no-stamping challenge this month.


Products used include:
Winnie &Walter - In a Word: Thanks Cutaway die
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set
Memory Box - Resting Birds die set
