Masculine Card

This month I needed a handful of masculine cards. So I sat down and made what I needed and some extra. When I was going through my paper, I came across this retired paper. It was in last year's Holiday Mini Catalog. It uses the retired in-color from last year, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango. I thought this paper and colors made a good fall masculine card. I also used the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set. The Neutrals 5/16 Inch Brads (112534) that I used on this card are put of the Online Extravaganza (regular price $7.95, sale price $5.57). I love these brads and I always grab them when I make a masculine card.

The inside of the card holds a gift card. I made one a few months back and you can see the details of the gift card holder here.

Have you seen the GREAT deals on the Online Extravaganza? There's some great bundles that would make excellent Christmas Gifts for those beginner stampers or seasonal stampers. Don't delay because these deals will only last until Monday, November 30, 2009.

Sorry it has been a little while since my last post. Last week I was getting ready for my November Christmas Card Stamp Camp, which was this past Saturday. I had a great turn out and we had a wonderful time getting those Christmas Cards done. I am now getting ready for my December Christmas Card Camp which is on December 6, 2009.

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Baby Card

Inside of Card

I have been busy the past few days making cards. This is one of the cards I made yesterday. My husband needed one for a co-worker. I remember making a onesies card a few years ago but I couldn't find the template. I went on a search for a onesies template and came across these beautiful onesies cards and she has a link to the template. This card was not hard to make, just a little time cutting it out. Cute and fun to make.
Thanks for looking.

Simple Christmas Card


Here's a simple Christmas Card. It does use three different stamp sets ("Wandering Words", Grateful Greetings, Patterned Pines.) This card uses the Retired Riding Hood Red re-inker mixed with the Shimmer Paint and the wide ribbon.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Thanks for looking,

Shimmer Paint with Reinkers

Riding Hood Red Reinker and Ribbon
Real Red Craft Reinker

This card is a simple but pretty card. It was made using Stampin' Up! Movers and Shapers Curly Label Die. When I went to mix the Champagne Mist Shimmer paint with Classic Real Red Reinker, I realized I did not have any. I only had Riding Hood Red and Craft Real Red Reinker. I first tried it with Riding Hood reinker and attached some retired ribbon to the card. I love this ribbon, I wished it now came in Real Red. I loved the way the card turned out but I did not have enough ribbon to offer this card as a class. So I went back to making another card with the Craft Real Red Reinker. I like this card too but I am going to order a wider ribbon to go on this card. I am going to order either the polka-dot or the striped Real Red Ribbon.

Thanks for looking,
Karen
