Technique Tuesday!

This month we will be creating a Marquee Card, Ghosting, and using the Baby Wipe Technique.

The Marquee Card idea came from the fabulous Jan Tink. I love how the card opens up to the grand image inside. Despite its appearance the card is rather simple and fun to create. This card features the cute Sparkly and Bright Stamp Set

The second technique we will be doing is ghosting. This is a perfect time of year for this technique even though there is nothing scary about it at all. This card uses the set Scary Skeleton.

The third card is still in the workshop being created so stay tuned to your computers for more!

Christmas Stamp a Stack

The next Christmas Card Stamp a Stack will be on November 6th and 7th.

One of the cards we will be doing is the Dasher card above. The base is Chocolate Chip and Old Olive. I love, love, love the wide Chocolate Chip ribbon, it is a must have!!

Keep watching for the other cards featured in next month's stamp a stack!

Happy Stamping!

The idea for this card was cased by many I have seen just like it. Thank you ladies for the inspiration!

Christmas is a Season of Happiness, Joy, family and so much more. This stamp set is very versatile and if you join me on October 4th or 5th I will have some samples of other types of cards you can make besides Christmas.

Keeping with my love of punch art I had to throw in a punch art card!! I saw this cute cute card on a blog or SCS and had to give it a try. It is very simple and quick to put together. Email me if you would like more details or sign up for my virtual punch class, this will be a bonus feature in December's class.

The next card show cases the Big Shot Embossing folder. A simple card with a little embossing, very quick and versatile. Change up the colors and make it a birthday card or even a wedding card!

Lastly, is my good ol friend Mr. Snow Man from Big on Christmas. He uses traditional colors and themes for Christmas. Also if you look closely the paper with the snowflake simmers just a bit.

Hello Baby!

Hello Baby! I created this fun spinner card for a sweet friend. She is not finding out the gender of the baby so I went neutral with celery. The background of the card is a retired favorite of mine Monkey Business. The monkey was done using punches and spins on a penny. How cute is he? I smile every time I see this card.

The monkey was created using Circle punches (1 3/4, 1 3/8, 3/4, and 1/2) as well as the small oval and hole punch for the eyes. He is a lot of fun!!

Check out my online punch class if you would like to receive more fun punch art! September features back to school punch art: School bus (free), scissors, glue, crayons, cheerleader etc...
