Christmas is on a Friday #4

 

I almost decided to skip Christmas today since I had shown it with my Live!/closeups this week.

 

But then I decided I'd share a few swaps instead....

 

 

I'm not sure why the gnomes are "a thing", but they are. :)

 

So of course I have to show you the swap I received with them plus a couple others.

Joy of Sharing all the EXTRAS!

 

Hey peeps!!

 

It was really fun playing with the extras in my Joy of Sharing Kit yesterday!

 

I was SO happy with my results without adding too much additional product. :)

 

 

As I said in my Live!, I started with this simple design, much like the simplicity of the kit itself.

This one is my favorite!

I ADORE how it turned out!

 

Joy of Sharing.Extra2  www.dazzledbystamping.com

I love how this looks laying down under the light....Because it's stitched, there was a different kind of pressure on the edges; they look lifted.

Have a fantastic day!!!

Have a Hoot!

 

Hello!!

 

I have a few Stampers Club swaps to share with you!

 

These are from my longest running club, but I'm not sharing from all of them....

 

A few people were gone and one used hers for her Secret Stamper, SOOOOO I can't show that one!!

 

 

 

Michelle is making me think I MAY need to get this Have a Hoot bundle (even though it involves coloring)!!

 

Look how cute this stitched collage frame is!!

 

If you look on pg 62 of the Mini Catalog, you can see that this collage frame [my words] is ALL ONE PIECE.

 

So the 3-shape setup is from 1 die.

And what is cut out become stitched tags with holes for the ribbon/thread. :D

 

PLUS, there are Christmas stamps in the bundle. :)

 

Have a Hoot, swap by Michelle Jager, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Zany Zebras, swap by Mary DeWit, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Forever Fern, swap by Georgianne Everhart, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

Zany Zebras and Forever Fern are MORE faves of mine!!

 

Thanks for sharing, girls!!

 

 

Have a spectacular day!!

Christmas is on a Friday #3

 

Happy Friday!

Haha! I started with the "Christmas is on Friday" when I wasn't ready to deal with Christmas.

 

THEN I showed you a Christmas Card Kit!

 

I was playing with the Tree Angle set last week, and here's another card I came up with.

 

I actually did stamp the brick wall (Brick & Mortar) AFTER I ran it through the die cutting machine.

 

But you COULD stamp before....You'll just want to put a kleenex on top of the stamped image when you run it through, so you don't have to worry about ink on your folder.

 

I sponged Smoky Slate lightly across the brick to give it a weathered look.

 

I love doing that with brick.

Here's everything I used, including colors:

 

 

 

Are you ready to be thinking about your Christmas cards yet?

I'll be scheduling some classes soon!

 

 

Have a fabulous day!!

Thanks a Ton!

 

Good morning!!

 

I hope everyone had a restful weekend--or productive, whichever you choose!

 

I love a long weekend! :)

 

 

I have one more project for you from my Whale Done Class.

 

It was the first time I'd used the Seabed embossing folder.

It's so cool!!

We colored the Seabed here and there with Sponge Daubers and ink.

Oh--and this cool looking whale was actually punched from some of the DSP.

Christmas is on a Friday #2

 

Happy Friday!!

Happy Long Weekend!!

Happy Christmas!!!!!!

 

 

Haha!!

I'm starting to feel like I need to focus on Christmas a little more. :D

 

But regardless, TODAY is my promised Christmas on Friday. :)

 

 

My goal for this card was using the Tree Angle set WITH the beloved Stitched Triangles Dies.

 

SOMEHOW my first card didn't incorporate them!!

(what?!?!?!?!)

 

 

So here it is....some of my LOVES--

 

Tree Angle, Stitched Triangles Dies, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

So I was inspired by these scraps of  Plaid Tidings DSP; I actually cut them down to 1" wide (tall?).

 

Then I saw these greetings in the Tree Angle set that could fit on skinny strips.

 

 

I started with the 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White layer.

DSP strips are 1" x 5 1/4".

I placed the top and bottom ones first and then placed the middle one.

 

I stamped between the strips once they were down.

 

 

I have a tip for the triangle tree....

For some reason I didn't have a problem with the bigger tree I used LAST week.

 

Maybe it's because there is so much design in this one?

But I struggled centering the die over the tree.

 

My best result came by CUTTING first and THEN stamping.

The set is photopolymer, so I can see right through the stamp.

 

It worked perfectly--or perfect enough for my standards. ;)

(no such thing as perfect, right?)

 

 

Here's all you need for this fun card:

That's a Hershey Nugget.

As I shared yesterday, besides your little embellishment pieces, you only need a 1 3/8" x 4 1/4" piece of cardstock!

 

I used Beautiful Autumn and Harvest Hellos (Give Thanks.)
