White Christmas Gift Cards

 
I made these cute little 3x3 gift cards using the White Christmas Photopolymer stamp set.
So glad Stampin' Up! did this one in Photopolymer as some of the stamps are so little and they stick so well to the clear blocks for stamping.
 
Of course, some sparkle was needed, so added some with the Dazzling Details.




 
Added one more because I didn't use the little banner in the above set.


 
These are so cute and easy to make.

Color Embossing with Blendabilities Markers

 
I have been having fun coloring with the Blendabilities Markers from Stampin' Up!
They work great for coloring on white heat embossed images!
 
For this card I stamped the pine branch with VersaMark ink on Basic Black card stock and then heat embossed white embossing powder.  I then took the Old Olive Blendabilities Markers and colored the pine needles and used the Bronze and Mocha markers from the Skin Tone Assortment to do the branch.  The pine cones used the same markers but I embossed them on Early Espresso card stock.
The stamp sets used on this card are Ornamental Pine and For All Things.



 
This card features the stamp set Nature's Peace and is stamped on Crumb Cake card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I then colored in some areas with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Blendabilities Markers. 
 
Lovin' the Blendabilities Markers
 So versatile...use to color in images, color on embossing, and add color to rhinestones and pearls.

Wonderous Wreath for Fall

I am so excited about the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies!  I love that they have little tabs on the stamps and framelits so it is easier to get them lined up!
 
This is the first card that I have made with this set and look forward to doing some Christmas cards with it.
 

The "hello fall" banner comes from the stamp set For All Things.

CASing the Holiday Catalog

 
If you don't already know...CASing is copying and sharing.
 
Here are a couple of cards that I CASed from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.
Both are found on page 27.
They are a little different from the catalog but not much.
 
This card features the Ornamental Pine stamp set.  Instead of using the Washi tape (because I didn't have it) for the polka dots under Christmas Wishes I used a small strip of paper from the All Is Calm specialty designer series paper.
 

For this card the catalog uses Old Olive but I made mine with the new In-Color, Mossy Meadow.
 
If your wanting to copy a card from a catalog you can find the supplies by clicking on the Stampin' Supplies list under the catalog  HERE .

Cute Robot Card

 
This cute robot image is from the Boys will be Boys stamp set.
 
The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with the Smokey Slate Stampin' Blendabilities Markers.
 
The Smokey Slate card stock background is embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.
 
The "you did it!" is from the stamp set Bravo.

Corner Garden

 
The new Corner Garden background stamp lends itself perfectly for practicing with the new Blendabilities markers.
 
 
I think that came out okay...
all that was left was to add a sentiment from the Blessed by God stamp set and mount on a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock.
