Swap Talk with Snowflake Sentiments

 

Snowflake Sentiments www.stampchatter.typepad.com

Good Morning! 

Today's Swap Talk is all about Snowflake Sentiments with Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies both from the current Holiday Catalog.   These are SO pretty to work with.  I received this card in a Christmas Card SWAP recently and I love it's simplicity and dark contrasts with the Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive combination.

The Real Red frame was cut out using the Stitched Framelits.

Here's a Pizza Box I did using the Swirly Snowflake Thinits...I still need to make some 3x3 cards to go in these along with some 3x3 envelopes to make a nice gift for someone this Christmas.

Watercolor Christmas Tags for Ronald McDonald!

Happy hump day!

Watercolor Christmas Tag www.stampchatter.typepad.com

Why is that long weekend Monday's make the rest of the week seem to take forever.  Which, in my case is probably a good thing as I've still got a lot of work today in preparation for our 5th Annual Ronald McDonald Fundraiser we're hosting this coming Saturday.  Over $11,000 in just four years is such an amazing amount of money from a little group like ours - I'm so excited to see what Saturday brings in for Ronald McDonald House and proud of our core team in making this such a success.

I'm busy today making tags for our Welcome Bags....aren't they cute?  A takeoff from a tag I saw on Pinterest....gotta love Pinterest.

There is still room at our Event this weekend.  So if you'd like to join us please do.  ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECTLY TO RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE.  Which is so awesome!

REGISTER HERE AND DON'T DELAY - WE'RE JUST A COUPLE DAYS AWAY!!!

Happy Thanksgiving with Painted Harvest

Painted Harvest

Screech!  How cute is this card!  Adorable right?!  I CASED this card from a Stampin' Up!' Demonstrator in Denmark.  Can't find her name but here is her blog:  stampellicht.blogspot.ca.  Check out all the other ADORABLE cards she has made using this same lion image.  So creative and absolutely adorable!  

She used the flower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the current Holiday Catalog to create the lions mane and head.  I'm not exactly sure of her colors to I guessed with Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Olive Green and Crushed Curry.

The leaves were punched out with the coordinating Leaf Punch that matches the leaves in the set Painted Harvest.  Check below for all the products I used in the making of this card.

HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEKEND EVERYONE!

Let talk Swaps today...with Snowflake Sentiments

HAPPY SUNDAY!

 

SeasonsGreetings

Isn't this a beautiful swap card...wish I could take a better picture of it...hmmm..need to look into my camera skills.   ha..  This uses the stamp set Snowflake Sentiments along with the co-ordinating Swirly Snowflake Thinlits.from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

I'm not sure who made this card as the sticky note that we usually put inside our swaps was not in this one...I'm thinking my friend Alison Solven did this one?  Correct me ladies if I'm wrong.  

Anyway....stunning nonetheless.  I love how these colors are so untraditional for Christmas and yet work so well.  Let's face it, Christmas Greens and Reds get a bit boring after a few years.  :-)  Don't tell Santa I said that. 

 

SeasonsGreetings2

The background is washed onto Shimmery White Cardstock using Aqua Painters and ink pads with the sentiment embossed in White onto Vellum and cutout using our Stitched Framelits and layered in a Pool Party background using Layering Ovals. Add a snowflake with rhinestones, a foil swirly and some Silver Metallic thread and you've got a untraditional beautiful Christmas Card....Love it!

You check out all the products used in the making of this card below.

Have an awesome Sunday!

It's Swap Talk Sunday with Merry Cafe

Hello Stampers... 

Today's SWAP card comes from one of my many swap buddies Ginny Duncan.  

Christmascheer

Ginny used the Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock for this card which I think sometimes gets a pass over in the catalog.  I love this extra thick cardstock for projects exactly like this one.  Just makes for a much sturdier card if use a white base for your cards.

Christmas Cheer

Ginny used the Merry Cafe stamp set in the Holiday Catalog which coordinates with our Coffee Cups Framelits from the Annual catalog.  She also used "Be Merry" Designer Paper from the Annual Catalog with the Silver Edged Ribbon.  Very pretty Ginny!

Happy Stamping!

Swap Talk......

Happy Sunday!

Jolly

Today I'm sharing a swap I received from Alison Solven using the "Santa Suit" photopolymer Stamp Set from the Current Holiday Catalog along with the new Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper.   

It may be hard to tell in this photo, but the background was run through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Embossing folder and the hat was colored over with the Clear Wink-A-Stella for a little shimmer.

Jolly x

A very effective, cute, quick card if you looking to make dozens for Christmas.  ;-)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
