Christmas Wreath

Good Morning, Stampers!

We're celebrating Christmas in July the week at my Weekly 3/$5 card classes! This card does not use your typical holiday stamp sets, but I think it works! By using traditional colors, the wreath is transformed with a more Christmasy feel.

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - A Day at the Beach

Good Morning, Stampers!
Welcome to another fabulous Create with Connie
and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

It's Summertime and we are creating cards
with a Beach theme! 

I think I got a little carried away with my card!
Ir's a little more "busy" that I am used to, but
I do not own any beach-themed stamp sets (CRAZY, I know!), so
I had to dig through what I had to create my card!



Starting at the at the top of the card, I stamped the "sun"
using So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie inks and the Touches of
Texture stamp set.
The middle of the card, the "water", was created using 
the Marbled background and Marina Mist ink.
The bottom, the "sand", was created using the Embossing Paste.
Once the embossing paste dried, I sponged Sahara sand ink all over.
The palm tree was created using the Christmas Pines stamp set.
I free-handed the tree base and stamped with the pinecone
images. Then, the palm fronds were die cut from Garden Green cardstock.
and the "coconuts" were die cut from Copper Foil paper and punched with 
the 1/2" circle punch. The chair, of course, comes from
the Colorful Seasons stamp set. Phew, that's a lot!

Stamps: Christmas Pines, Colorful Seasons, Marbled Background, Touches of
Textures
Ink: Marina Mist, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Real Red, Whisper White, Early Espresso, 
Daffodil Delight
Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green, Copper Foil, Glossy, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Embossing Paste, Pretty Pines thinlits, 1/2" circle punch, sponge, Seasonal Layers thinlits

Daisy Delight Birthday

Good Morning, Stampers!

I have an easy and fun folded card to share with you today! It's called a simple z-fold and is great alternative to the simple fold in half card and your recipient will be "wowed"!

To create the card base, fold a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock in half. Then, fold the top of the card flap back in half and decorate as you like!



I added pieces of the Delightful Daisy designer series paper along
with the Daisy Delight stamp set. A few coordinating 
embellishments finish off the card.
