Hey, Chick! Waterfall Card




 Just finished making this fun waterfall card this morning.  I love making waterfall cards, so I had to play around with this one to get the measurements I needed. This is the new set called Hey, Chick! which is FREE with a purchase of Stampin' Up! products during Sale-A-Bration.   I did add a bit of an extension for the last part of my waterfall card and used an old retired stampin' Up! set for the feet (Best of Cluck 2005).  I used a combination of the Classic markers and the new Watercolor Pencils.  The embossing folder is the new Hexagons Dynamic TIEF in the Occasions catalog.  The colors are Basic Black, Delightful Dijon, and Whisper White.  Each chicken is stamped on 2" x 2-1/2" Whisper White and layered onto Basic Black at 2-1/4" x 2-3/4".  I attached to Basic Black cut at 2-1/4" scored at 2", 2-3/4", 3-1/2" and 4-1/4.  I then added an extension to the bottom of Delightful Dijon at 2-1/4" x 5-1/2".  I rounded the corners.

Watercolor Pencils by Stampin’ Up!

Tasty Trucks

This is another card I did for a swap which uses the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog that I earned FREE with the purchase of $50 in Stampin' Up! products.  The base of my card is Whisper White with a layer of Pacific Point using the Sparkle Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.
I colored in the truck using the new Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  You can also use an Aqua Painter when using these new pencils.  I also used the Layering Circle Framelits and cut out a Melon Mambo scallop circle, and I used the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets Dies to die cut the banner which I stamped with Memento Black ink.

Custom Tee and Designer Tee

It has been several weeks since I have posted.  That was because I was so busy with the holidays, so going to try to get back into my blogging and card making.  I also did a few swaps recently and this is one of them made with a couple new sets.  Custom Tee is from the Occasions catalog and because it says "happy stamper" I used a black marker to add the smiley face from the Designer Tree stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The base of my card is Real Red with Whisper White cardstock and Sending Love DSP.  I used the Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits, T-Shirt Builder Framelit Dies, and the Layering Oval Framelits.

Santa's Sleigh

It has been a very busy month, so I've not posted recently.  Thought I'd better post this card before Christmas is over.  This was a card I made for my Christmas swap this month.  It uses the Santa's Sleigh reindeer.
Here are the instructions:

1.     The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.
2.    The second layer is Emerald Envy cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and inserted into the Holly TIEF and run through the Big Shot.  Then attach it to the front of the card with Adhesive.
3.    Very Vanilla Cardstock is cut at 1-3/4” x 3” for the main image and the Cherry Cobbler is cut at 2” x 3-1/4” and layered together and attached to the upper part of the card.

Jolly Friends


This moose is what I loved about the stamp set Jolly Friends plus the jolly hats to go with it.  Of course, the set actually has 21 stamps that come with a Santa, a fox, and an elf face too.  The sentiment is from the Merry Mice stamp set which actually says "Merry Christmouse!" but I used a Garden Green marker to make it say "Merry Christmoose!"  I used the Warmth & Cheer DSP Paper Stack for the background cut at 4" x 5-1/4"  on my 4-1/4" x 11" Basic Black card base.  The moose is stamped with Stazon on 3" x 3-1/2" Very Vanilla cardstock, and colored in with markers of Delightful Dijon and Garden Green for the scarf and hat.  The moose is colored in with Crumb Cake.
