Painted Harvest Day 3

Hello friends! Just a quick post to let you know I have been busy creating for an up coming Craft Sale this weekend. Please stop by my booth if you are in the Kindersley Area.
Kindersley Mall
September 30th
10 am - 4 pm

Here is another Painted Harvest card for you, as I said before I am loving this set and will be offering a class for these cards. Please check my calander next week for times.

I tried a ne color combo, Berry Burst and Flirty Flamingo. At first I wasn't thrilled with this color choice, but once it dried and lightened up I really do like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous Friday Friend.

25th Birthday Card!

Hello! I am so excited to share this card I made for my son for his 25th Birthday a couple weeks ago.. I spent more time creating the inside of the card and little time on the outside. I had many grand ideas, trust me! But it came down to a time crunch thing!! I know, no excuses... I had 25 years to plan and make this milestone card....Haha! He really loved it and I think I even impressed the Girlfriend!
I made another Pop & Twist Card, let me know what you think!



I love how this turned out! I used retired paper from the last Occassions Catty from the Build It Suite. I always hoard my beautiful paper so to use it for this card means he's pretty special! LOL! I don't just use it for just anybody you know... I am sure some of you can relate to this "problem" I have.
The pictures start from his "Birthday" - 25 years. What a super cool idea don't you think!
Thanks for stopping by! Check back tomorrow for MAilable Monday and Day 3 of my Painted Harvest creations.

Painted Harvest

Welcome to another Finally Friday post! Sorry I have been so sporatic with my posts... I always have good intentions, I make the cards, take the pictures, edit the pictures, upload the pictures and STOP! That's as far as it has gone! So sad, my creations and all their glory are going unseen! 
Today I am going to change that with all the pretty cards I made using the new Painted Harvest stamp set from the new Occassions Catalog!
I had to do the next best thing and actually borrow this fabulous set from my friend Dawn, thanks Dawn! I didn't order this set but saw so many cute cards online that I just couldn't resist making my own!
For todays card, I think this is my absolute favorite color combo I tried with this set. Basic Gray & Smoky Slate. Say what!!?? Have a look for yourself!

Stamps: Painted Harvest, Rose Wonder
Cardstock & Ink: Whisper White,Basic Black,Berry Burst, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate,Momento Black
Basic Rhinestones,Stitched Framelits,Big Shot,Mini Dimentionals
*****************
This is a 2 step stamp, and I didn't even bother to line it up! I just stamped over top of the first image and it looks awesome.... or so I think anyways! Let me know what you think!
Thanks for stopping by! Check back tomorrow for another card from my collection!

More Swap Card Shares!

Well friends it's Fianally Friday, or as I tell everyone, Fabulous Friday! Woo hoo! The day of the week us working crafters look forward to the most! 
I shared with you on the previous post the Cookie Cutter Card I made for my up coming card swap I am in. Today I will share the one I made for the 3X3 Swap. I love 3X3 cards and make them for my customers as a little thank you in their bags. I really love the way this turned out!
Good Tidings 3X3



Because we had to include an embelishment on the card I tried the Basic Rhinestones and the Gold Edged Ribbon. I liked it the best with the Rhinestones so I added 3 to the front of the card. I finished up the inside with the smalled Holly Leaves and sentiment! I am totally loving this stamp set!
I practiced 6 different green combos to find out which one I liked the best. This was my favorite. Pear Pizazz and Old Olive was what I went with because I wanted the Gold Embossing to stand out against the background. Real Red was used for the berries and Cherry Cobbler for the cardstock!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Check back again tomorrow for my last swap card I made for the Gift Card Catagory.

Swap Sneak Peak!

I have a super cute card I created for an upcoming Swap this month. I chose to use the Cookie Cutter Stamp set that was carried over from last years Christmas Catty! When I was trying to fiqure out what the heck to make with it, I re watched an old video featuring the Corner Fold Technique and a light bulb went off!  I had taught this fold at Card Club a couple years ago and it was a hit! I loved it, so I thought i'd do it one more time!

Inside of card

There was lots of steps to this card, lots of finicky cutting, thank God for Paper Snips!!
I am really happy with how this turned out. I made 7 of these, I will also mail one off to my Swap Sister in Ontario.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Check back to see the 3x3 Swaps I made using the New stamp set Good Tidings.

Hello and welcome to another fabulous Sunday friends.
I spent yesterday in the city with my daughter buying stuff to set her up in her first apartment! Exciting and scary at the same time... she is very aprehensive! I totally understand, but she has been wanting this for years. Now that the time is here you can see the deer in the headlights look! I am totally excited for her and the time is right, and she will be fine. I have faith!
I have a super cute Sampler to share with you today. We saw a quick screen shot of this at our April On Stage in Calgary, so I am unsure whom to give credit to. It was so easy to recreate using the You Move Me Thinlet Dies from the Annual Catalog.




Stamps: Labeler Alphabet, Touches of Texture, Timeless Textures
Cardstock & In: Whisper White,Copper Foil,Fresh Fig,Lemon Lime,Tranquil Tide,Berry Burst,Powder Pink,Archival Black

This framed art piece is 8"x10" and looks stunning in person. My crafty friend Shirley joined me to make this sampler, a good time was had before we headed out to watch our kids play Slow pitch.
