Christmas Puppies in the Truck!

Oh M Gee… This truck is SO MUCH FUN.  It is from the Spellbinders October “Large Die of the Month” club called Truckin’ Through the Seasons.  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it.  (even though I waited a week to make sure I still wanted it!)

Seriously cute! I made a 2nd one in a blue truck.  Drop me a comment to let me know which truck is your favorite… RED OR BLUE?

Oh how I love puppies!  Here are mine:  From Left to right: Thomas a rescued Poochon (18 months), Zoe is a Mini Poodle (9 years) and Gus is a Mini Golden Doodle (almost 11 months)!

The background on these cards was made with Panpastels.  I just rubbed the pink and the blue on with a sponge.  You can also make this same pink sky background with the gel press. Check out the step by step on this post

Now for the BIG HUGE bummer: the Truckin’ Through the Seasons die set is sold out.  BUT you can still subscribe to the monthly die club. (DO IT!! its very affordable)  I am in the large die club right now and you will be seeing some FUN projects each month using these club dies.  Join the any of the die /card kit clubs and save 15% of your 1st month!  CODE: CLUB15

No Prob-Llama Christmas card and mini pillow box

How fun is this Llama?  And how cute is that pillow box?   I won this stamp set by participating in a team card making challenge.  Free stamps are the best stamps!  So I decided to ink him up for a Llama Christmas card!

I am totally loving buffalo check this holiday season.  Especially the red and black! Of Course my Llama Christmas card needed a matching buffalo check scarf to go with the paper.  

The ribbon is custom colored. Did you know you can color it with your alcohol markers?   Check out the video tutorial to see how easy it is to do! and the stinking cute mini pillow box too!

And this Mini Pillow Box is so cute- and tiny!  It nicely holds 2 Hershey Nuggets. Only the tiny tiny items will fit in this cute.  Its perfect for small candies, earrings, folded up money,  charms, jewelry and even fridge magnets!  Perfect for a stocking stuffer for the holidays! ( gift cards won’t fit)

easy Halloween card, Stamp with Jill, Fun Stampers Journey, Marthas Pumpkins

The background is the Flower Tangle background stamp.  Oh how I love this stamp.  Never thought that I could use it to make an easy Halloween card .  I used the ink blending technique to create the colors.  You can see the video tutorial on how to do the background  on THIS POST.  All I did was change the colors to fall and halloween.

Use your Pretty Papers- Part 3

I love beautiful paper and I have lots of it.  An embarrassing amount of it to be quite honest.  I am always looking for great layouts that showcase pretty paper with a simple layout that is easy to recreate with any paper you have.

Use your pretty papers Part 3, Stamp with Jill

This is so easy and the main focal point is the pretty paper.  The key here is to have a tiny sentiment so it does not over power the paper.  

Use your pretty papers part 3, stamp with Jill

Here are the specs.  The designer paper is cut to 3.75 x 3.75.  the next step is to simply layer with coordinating colors.  This Fun Stampers Journey paper called The Good Life Prints is absolutely beautiful and make designer paper cards SUPER EASY!  Here are the rest of the measurements.  Whip Cream 3-3/4 x 4,  Chambray Shirt 3-3/4 x 5,  Denim Days 5-1/8 x 3-7/8, Whip Cream 4 x 5.25 and the card base is 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5.
