Christmas Gingerbread House

Ok, so after I made the Halloween House I just knew I had to make another for Christmas. I love the colors together. The red damask paper has white flocking. So lots of textures and little details everywhere. Of course it also really does house a box of Kleenex too ;) The front door is on a hinge. The door mat is stamped "home is made of love and dreams." This sentiment is from PapertreyInk you can find it here it's called Boards & Beams.

So next I'll simply have to do a Fall one 'cause the warm colors of autumn are me.

Halloween Tissue House

I altered a chipboard house to hold a box of Kleenex. I thought it would be fun to have the coffin hold hand sanitizer. For the windows I used clear embossing powered to create the "cracked glass" and smeared black ink over them to give a dingy appearance. When you open the hinged front door you can see a spider on it's web. You can pull the tissues out from the chimney.

Congrats Baby Boy

This card was made using the Close To My Heart Everyday Celebrations Kit. The Ahoy Little Sailor stamp is from Papertrey Inc.

The inside of the card also has a onsie from the Papertrey Inc stamp set called Bitty Baby Blessings. I just love the colors and the harlequin print.

The Best And Most Beautiful Things

This card was created using a stamp set from Close To My Heart called "Beautiful Things". The bear stamp I believe was from Rubber Stampede. I just love the quote from Helen Keller, " The best and most beautiful things cannot be sen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart."

Elegant Easter Egg

I tried to challenge myself by using a
color I do not care for - Purple.
I kept this Easter card pretty simple, and actually love it. I think it's the green ribbon that makes it work for me. Eventually I will figure out how to take a picture of my cards where you can see all the detail clearly. It's a work in progress.

Chipboard Tissue House

I had so much fun creating this chip board house from Maya Road. This was the first time I tried paper quilling. I just love the little window boxes I made to go with the house. In person you can see I used liquid glass for the windows. The butterflies came from Close to my Heart "Butterfly Kiss"

Here is the back of my tissue house. I used a dragonfly from Close to My Heart "Butterfly Kiss". You can see some detail of the white flowers I used with a paper quilling technique.

Par-fect Day for Golf

For my Par-fect Day golf card I dry embossed white card stock, then used a circle punch to create the golf ball. I glued a golf tee to the card and placed the ball on the tee using dimensional foam for some lift. Since my handwriting is dreadful, I used my favorite font "Lucida Handwriting" in a word document, then used the "Curly Label Punch" from Stampin' Up! The sky is Bashful Blue and the grass is Garden Green.

Fall Sunset

I just love all things nature, so of course I just had to have "Branch Out" from Stampin' Up! The background was made by sponging various colors from my favorite color family "Earth Elements." I layered my tree scene on Really Rust and Chocolate Chip card stock.

Happy Holidays Snow Globe

Here you can see I used acetate to make my snow globe.

I made this Christmas Snow Globe using the Santa from Close To My Heart "Happy Christmas" and the Happy Holidays from the"Holiday Joy" set.

Nature's Greatest Masterpieces

The background of this card was created using masking tape. The tree came from Penny Black. The verse is from Papertry Inc, a set called "Father Knows Best".
