Christmas card/kit "SENDING YOU WARM WISHES" card



Listening to NASCAR today ~ **GO JIMMIE & TEAM LOWE'S** ~ and putting together another Christmas card kit.     I made a card somewhat like this about two years ago and I thought I'd make some more.   I didn't have enough of the pattern paper to do all 20 the same.. and then I had only enough of the Stampin' UP! DSP to do 13, so I dug through some pattern paper I have and found some more to do the other 13.  Everything is cut/stamped and put together in a ziploc bag.  

Below is when I was working on the card sample..  the one at the top of the picture is one I made two years ago.  I had done the measurements on the paper below the card.. and realized I had a boo boo on it for the sentiment layer. I will retype everything below this pic for the finished card sample.

Working on Christmas card kits



I wasn't feeling too good late last night.. tummy ache.. and was going to lay down in bed, but decided to cut some paper instead.  I had printed off the measurements for one of my favorite Christmas cards and make some kits to put together at another time.

This is what the card will look like when put together:




I was midway through cutting the paper when I realized I needed a border punch and all my punches were still packed up because I cannot store them as I have in the past.  I went looking for a particular punch and ended up unpacking one entire box and part of another before I found it.  I then did all the punching and moved onto the other layers.

I am sharing the measurements below that you can print off..  here is the link to the blog post that has the measurements on the page itself:  CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS CARD WITH MEASUREMENTS

"TIGER ~ TIGERS" cards for today



I found my TAC (The Angel Company) Tiger stamp a couple of nights ago and had it laying on my desk.  After finishing my card earlier for this week's MFTWSC, I decided to ink it up and make a couple of quick cards.   I used letters from the MFT License Plate stamps/dienamics set to spell out TIGERS and to die cut the plate.

I had stamped the "Property of Team Awesome" and die cut it out, having some area at the top and bottom of the saying..  I then decided to stamp it again and this time put W H S on top of it and then die cut it out.  W H S is for Waynesville High School.. and we think our TIGERS!!!  are Team Awesome!!!

"Creeping By To Say Hi!" Halloween Card using MFT Sun Ray Die-namics Die



I made some cards last night using my MFT Sun Ray Die-namics Die and when I shared the pic on a FB group I am in, someone mentioned using it for a Halloween card.   I had an idea for a card, but needed to find a certain stamp set.. so that idea is still floating around in my head.. but I wanted to make something quick to see how it would turn out.

 I have lots of shimmery paper in all sorts of color.. except black, so I took some dark gold paper and ran a black ink pad over it..  it wasn't drying too fast, so I rubbed the card stock to get the excess off.. I die-cut my spider using an MFT spider die.. and when I added it to the card, I added googly eyes to it.

Supplies:

card stock:  Tango Tangerine, Black, Certainly Celery
pattern paper:  Halloween American Crafts paper
ink: Black
stamps:  SU Web Wishes
accessories:  Scor-Pal, MFT Sun Ray Die, MFT Spider Die, MFT Circle Stax, MFT Pinking Circle Stax, Embroidery Floss, Googly Eyes and Dimensionals

MFTWSC194 "YOU MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE" card




ahhhh.. how good it feels to have my stamp room unpacked and to be able to sit down and make something.   I still have two boxes full of punches that I haven't unpacked. I used to store them in door shoe bag storage thingys.. but there isn't a way for me to hang them that way in the room/area I am in.. I do have an IKEA rolling cart and am considering purchasing another and storing them in the carts.. not sure, I'll figure it out.

I have missed doing the weekly MFTWSC sketches.. so it is even better that I finished my stamp room in time for a new sketch.. yeah!!

Here's the sketch I used:  MFTWSC194



SUPPLIES:

card stock:  Brown
pattern paper:  Authentique Hope
stamps:  MFT Vertical Greetings
ink:  SU Early Espresso
accessories: Scor-Pal, MFT Pinking Circles, Circle Stax, Tag You're It, Buttons, banners from Blueprints 10, Hemp Cord and Dimensionals
