Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


Welcome to our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Our theme this week was a little difficult for me. We all created a "One Layer Card". I am a "betweener" when it comes to stamping. I don't like busy but not super-simple either so this is what I came up with, hope you like it!



My card is a one-layer card with the addition of just a few Rhinestones in the background and the In-Color Bitty Bow on the mittens. Do you like how I added my coloring to the outside of each mitten?


  • I started by stamping my mittens with the Smitten Mitten's stamp set using VersaMark Ink and the masking technique. I sprinkled White Embossing Powder and used the Heat Tool to melt the powder.
  • My next step was to stamp the inside of each mitten with images using Crumb Cake Ink. I love how you can build your own mittens with the many image choices.
  • I then used my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to outline around the outside of the white embossing. It's a little trick for making images pop!
  • Finish off with a Tranquil Tide In-Color Bitty Bow, a few Rhinestone Jewels in the background and a stamped sentiment to complete the card.

Homemade Icicles Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen!

Icicles anyone? How would you like to learn how to make your own? Do you own the Fine Tip Glue Pen from Stampin' Up!? This glue is not just for gluing!


Fine Tip Glue Pen
Item #138309

I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen with the addition of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create the icicles you see on this Christmas card:



First let's talk about my card. I created a cute scenery using the stamp images from the Carols Of Christmas stamp set and added a few die-cuts from the Card Front Builder Dies. I also created my own window frame with my Paper Cutter and then glued cardstock in the back and slid a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for my snow bank:






And this photo shows you a close-up of my homemade icicles:

3D Thursday FREE Halloween Project!




Welcome to 3D Thursday and a brand new project this week. Our featured projects always come with a FREE Project Sheet you can download and print for your own use. 



When Twila Davis from Stamp A Little Longer created her project for our team this week, I couldn't help but giggle and smile! Just take a peek at these photo's and you'll know what I mean:




Twila found the Reece's Eyeballs at WalMart and said she couldn't resist purchasing them to use for her project. How neat! The eyeball sits on the inside of the matchbook so when you flip the top open, this is what you see:



Don't you just love the little antennae at the top?


Here's the FREE Project Sheet. Just click on the link below this photo:

Stampin' Dreams September Blog Hop!


Welcome to a new Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! For the month of September we are all featuring "something different". Something we've wanted to try. For me, I have quite a few things on my "to try" list and the Fanfare Card Fold is one item I can now cross off my list. Look how neat and pretty this card fold is:


The front section folds open in the photo above and closed in the photo below:


Here's a photo of the card laying flat to give you a better idea what it looks like. Isn't it pretty with all of the folds and layers?


Lots of folds, lots of layers and lots of fun!


I used the Year Of Cheer Designer Paper for my layers and the Cheers To The Year stamp set for the circular image. For the sentiment, I wanted to use a skinny one and I found what I need in the Santa's Sleigh stamp set:


I have one panel that has a Whisper White Cardstock layer for the inside sentiment and stamped a few snowflake images to finish it off:


Card Layers:

  • Card Base: Berry Burst Cardstock 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" (lays flat)
  • Center Layer: 4-1/4" x 11". Score at 1-1/2", 3", 5-1/2" and 8". Fold accordion style
  • Designer Paper Layers: 4" x 2-3/4", 4" x 2-1/4" and 4" 1-1/4".
  • Whisper White Layer: 4" x 2-1/4"

I hope you enjoyed my "different" card fold for today. I can't wait to see what my teammates have created. Make sure you visit everyone by clicking on the person below me (Debbie Henderson). Thanks for visiting me today!
