When Is A Ticket Not A Ticket…

When It’s A Tree

Ticket Christmas Tree

I was looking at the ticket punch and wondering what you could do with that tiny little ticket. I started punching tickets out of scrapes of silver glimmer paper…the tickets looked like little bricks. From there I tried to build a wall using the traditional brick pattern…it was OK…but this tree is better. I used Whisper White for the card and the first layer, then a little border of Gumball Green around the Cherry Cobbler…built the tree and topped it with a star. The Merry Christmas is from the Come to Bethlehem Stamp Set.

Very graphic and simple!

Accentuate The Negative

This card was made from the negative left from another card I designed. When I cut the gold label out, I was left with

this gold layer with the imprint from the edge of the framelit. So I combined some of the elements of the original card

and added the paper piercing. Voila!

Wishing You Peace

Serene Silhouettes, Summer Silhouettes and Greetings of the Season Stamp Sets

The roots of the bush are the flower stem from Summer Silhouettes turned upside down and the bush with the beautiful red birds is from Serene Silhouettes. The greeting is from Stampin’ Up new Holiday Catalog…four greetings written in lovely fonts. The greeting, birds and frame are all Cherry Cobbler red. Stampin’ Up does a great job of color coordination. If you are working on a project i.e. Christmas cards and run out of ribbon there is always more available.

The Greetings of the Season Stamp Set is available from my Online Store just click here and you can order your set just in time for Christmas Card Making.

Fall Card Class

Falling Leaves

This card is as close as we get to beautiful fall leaves here in Central Florida. I used French Foliage SS and markers to color the stamps. I know the Rich Razzleberry ribbon is retired but I couldn’t resist using it…so perfect for this card. I folded the tails of the ribbon over the horizontal ribbon so I would not have a big bump and the button would sit flat on the card. The insert for this card is decorated with a single leaf. The stamp is available on the USPS website. Happy Birthday Linda!

Snow Festival Christmas Blocks

I love this new Designer Series Paper, Snow Festival. When I saw the sheet with the squares, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. These are the blocks we sold a couple  of years ago. I saved two boxes, hopefully you did too. If not, maybe they are available online or you have some someone cut you 3″ wood blocks. Two sheet will cover five blocks. I love this Snow Festival DSP. Many of the designs are linear and make great strips to decorate cards and boxes.
