OCC Holiday Card Workshop - Day 5 of class

Good Morning!

How are you today? Good I hope! I tried to make a more masculine card for the 5th day of class for the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop 2013. I think there may be too much glitter on it to make it very masculine but it is blue! I think a guy could handle a little glitter right? Anyways, I used the largest Fancy Flakes die from Papertrey and cut it out of Enchanted Evening cardstock. The card base is Spring Rain cardstock. I also used Enchanted Evening ink. The sentiment is from the Instant Photo: Holidays stamp set. All of this is from Papertrey, because I have a serious addiction! The glitter is some blue Stickles that I got from Michaels.

So, like I said, not sure if it's very masculine, but I like it! Thanks for having a look at my blog and my card! Comments are appreciated and welcome!

OCC Holiday Card Workshop 2013 - Day 3 of class

Hello again!

I had a chance to make another card with the Rustic Wreath stamp set from Papertrey. This one I tried to keep clean and simple for the 3rd day of class of the OCC Holiday Card Workshop 2013. Clean and simple is hard for me, I always seem to want to fill up all of that space! Anyways, I used Rustic Cream cardstock and Pine Feather ink from Papertrey. I colored the wreath in with some Crayola colored pencils using two different greens for some shading. I also used a bit of red stickles that I got at Michaels for some berries. I really like how this one turned out and like how easy and quick it was to make (I guess that's the beauty of clean and simple).

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!

Festive Friday #21 take 2

Hello Hello!

I made another card for the Festive Friday #21 challenge. I'm also going to post this to the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop 2013 for the Day 2 class forum. I used Papertrey Ink's Rustic Wreath stamp set and the related die. I used Pure Poppy and Stampers Select White cardstock and Candy Cane Prints paper, all from Papertrey. I also used a bit of red and white bakers twine and some clear Stickles glitter glue that I got at Michaels.

Anyways, hope you like it! Comments are welcome and appreciated! Have a great day!

OCC Holiday Card Workshop - Day 1 again

Third post for today! Woohoo! I'll get right to it. Again mostly Papertrey Ink products. Aqua mist cardstock again (other side of the base from the first card, previous post) and Melon Berry. The tag die is Tag Sale #8 (new in October). Stamp sets used include Winter Hills, Stylish Sentiments: Holiday, and Background Basics: Medallions. The Medallions were stamped in white ink across the whole card base, so they are not very noticeable, but add a little something. I also sprayed the whole base with some perfect pearls mist for a little shine. The tag is actually a shaker tag. I made a little snow bank inside the shaker and covered it in a white glitter from Michaels. I then filled the shaker with the same glitter to make it seem like snow. I really like how this card turned out!

Thanks again for looking! I had lots of posts today! I guess I'm trying to make up for the week I missed. ;)

OCC Holiday Card Workshop 2013 - Day 1

Hello again!

Second post for the day! I am on a roll! Lol! This post is for a card I made for the first day of the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop 2013. I love these classes. I've taken the last two holiday workshops and would love to take some other classes, I just never seem to have the time! Luckily you can go on and take them anytime, so maybe one day I'll get a chance to do another one. Again my card was made with Papertrey Ink products. I seem to have some kind of addiction to them I know!

On this card I used Aqua Mist Card stock for the base. The snowflake is made with Pure Poppy cardstock and the banner is their white cardstock. The snowflake is the largest in the Fancy Flakes die collection. I also stamped the entire card base with their Background Basics: Christmas Joy stamp set. Lastly the sentiment is from their Holiday Cheer stamp set.

I'm going to do another post after this one for another card I made for this same class and day. Thanks for looking and commenting if you would like!

Merry Monday #83

Hello there!

Today I am posting a card I made for the Merry Monday #83 challenge. This is my first time entering this challenge, but I hope to do many more. I love making Christmas cards, so making them all year would be fabulous! So, I made this card using mostly Papertrey Ink products. I used their White and Pure Poppy card stocks. Stamps sets used include Background Basics: Super Stripes and Happiest of Holidays. Dies used include Mat Stack #3 and the Coffee Cozy Details (the heart). I also used Pure Poppy and Dark Chocolate felt for the hearts. Non Papertrey items used include embroidering thread on the hearts and the gold stickles used on the stripes. I really like this color combo, I think its very warm and homey. Anyways, hope you like the card!

Square frame


I missed a week! Not good, but I was pretty busy last week. My niece got married and my dogs are kind of sick so I was dealing with that. I made the invitations for my nieces wedding. I might have to post them sometime. She only needed 40 so that wasn't too bad. Anyways, I had a chance to make a card for the most recent PTI Make it Monday #139, so I am here to post it. I'm also entering it into the Festive Fridays challenge #21 which is to use white, red, and aqua. I used the Candy Cane Christmas and the Background Basics: Christmas Joy stamp sets from Papertrey along with their paper.
I also used some Scor-tape and glitter from Michaels to add the strips of glitter on top and bottom.

I made another card with a frame, this one is rectangular and I used the new Stitching Lines dies from Papertrey to make the frame and some pink embroidery floss. I also used the Polka Dot Parade #9 stamp set and die and the raspberry fizz pattern paper pack. I'm not entering it in the MIM because I didn't use a stamp for the frame but thought I would post it anyway because I thought it turned out pretty cute. The base of the card is Soft Stone and the paper with the frame is Sweet Blush I believe.

That's it for this post, but I'm definitely hoping to post this coming week too. Here is a picture of my puppies just because I love them and they are cute! This is a pic from last Christmas.
Anyways, thanks for stopping by! Hope you like my projects!
