Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


A "Mailable" project is what our theme is today for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. What is a "Mailable" project? One that can be mailed flat without any embellishments or ribbons!


For today's card, I used the Feeling Of Christmas and Hearts Come Home stamp sets. I stamped the wreath directly on the Painted Autumn Designer Paper:


These are the colors I used on today's card:




Card layers:

  • Card Base: Tangerine Tango Cardstock 5" x 10". Score at 5" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 4-3/4" x 4-3/4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Painted Autumn Designer Paper 4" x 4". Stamp the detailed wreath using Garden Green Ink. Stamp the 2nd wreath image using Tangerine Tango Ink. Color in the leaves using Old Olive and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers.
  • Banner: Tangerine Tango Cardstock 5" x 3/4". Score at 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" on each end. Stamp the sentiment in the center using Rich Razzleberry Ink. Fold on the score lines to create the banner. Add Stampin' Dimensionals on the center portion only and glue in place on the card front.

Smitten Mittens Meets Cable Knit!

Hi Everyone, an FYI today for you. My hubby Dave and I traveled for a scheduled knee replacement surgery for Dave yesterday morning. He has been in a lot of pain these past few months. He will be in the hospital for three days and then transferred to a physical therapy location for at least 7 to 10 days. Please say a prayer that all goes well for his recovery! 

If you contact me and I don't respond right away, I am traveling daily to be with him which is an hour and a half away from home. 
I have posts scheduled daily for awhile so you should be seeing something from me here daily. I will also have my laptop and tablet with me when I have free time while he does therapy.

Today's card uses the Smittten Mittens stamp set and Many Many Dies. I also used the Cableknit Embossing Folder for the background:


The die set includes this flat pattern that presses into the mitten to add a little bit of texture. I also love that you can stamp and cut the top of the mittens in layers:


I added the red Mini Tinsel Trim at the top that is connected to each mitten. Do you remember as a young child how our mittens were attached to a long string? The purpose was to insert them into our coat sleeves so we wouldn't lose them. I wonder if those are still around? 


To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I cut a 2nd larger oval to layer over. Here are all of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used today:

3D Thursday and a FREE Project Sheet!


Hello Everyone and welcome to 3D Thursday! Just a note that our team is taking Thanksgiving off next week and we will resume 3D Thursday the following week with a brand new project. This week is my turn to feature a 3D project and of course I'll have a FREE Project Sheet you can download and print. I created this cute 3D Mittens Treat Holder using the Smitten Mittens stamp set and Many Mittens Dies:



I even added a little pair of mittens to tie off the cello bag using Jute Twine:



This project would be cute for a child's Christmas party, as a table favor or even as an after-Christmas winter treat since I opted not to use a Christmas sentiment!



I used the Bundle Of Love Designer Paper for all of my die-cuts. I love the beautiful pattern on this sheet of paper I used:



And here's one last photo before I give you the download link:

Stampin' Dreams November Blog Hop!




Welcome to our Stampin' Dreams November Blog Hop. I'm so glad you are here visiting me and the participants of our monthly Blog Hop. Once you view my project for today, I will direct you to the next Blog Hop with a list at the bottom of my post. You are currently visiting Debbie Hendereson from Debbie's Designs.


This month, we are all featuring a "Favorite Technique". One technique that I use quite often is called "Stamping Off":





This technique is used when you want some of your stamped images to appear lighter than others. All you do is ink up your stamp, stamp the image and without reinking the stamp, stamp again to create the lighter image. You can see in my card that I stamped three of the trees using this technique. I love the way this card came out by using this technique. Here's are two close-up photos of my trees to show you the difference by not re-inking the stamp:






Now it's time to visit the next person in our line-up. You can click on the person below me, Debbie Henderson, to continue on. We all have the same listing on our blogs so you can't get lost. Enjoy the blog hop and we will see you again next month!
