Toile Christmas

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

Todays card is featuring a bundle set from the new 2019 Stampin’Up! Holiday catalog, Toile Christmas. I thought this was an odd name for a stamp set because Toile is a fabric, from the French word meaning “linen cloth” or “canvas”, particularly cloth or canvas for painting on. When I look at this set it has nothing to do with fabric. Maybe they mean the fabric of Christmas. Who knows!

It’s been difficult for me to get into the Christmas spirit with temperatures still in the upper 90’s where I live. But I need to figure out which stamp set I will use for my personal Christmas cards I will be sending out this year. So here is my first sample:

My base card is Soft Suede cardstock measuring 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. For the first layer I used Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. The coordinating Toile Tidings DSP is my second layer measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. I used gold glimmer paper to cut out the image. Something about the gold glimmer paper makes everything so festive. I decorated the DSP with Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots. These little dots come in various sizes. Great to add some pizzazz to a poinsettia. I adhered the image to the DSP using Multipurpose glue. Stampin Dimensionals were used to adhere the sentiment. I also used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the Very Vanilla cardstock to my base card. For the inside of the card I used Very Vanilla, and I’m so sorry but I forgot to take a picture of it, and stamped the saying ‘May this season be filled with beautiful moments and happy memories for you and those you hold dear’.

Gather Together

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

Wow, it’s been about a little over a week since my last post. My husband and I took a well deserved beach vacation. Our destination was Navarre Beach in Florida. It was absolutely wonderful. Every day sunshine and no rain. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

I thought I share a few pictures especially of the beautiful sunset we got to see.

But all good things have to come to an end and it’s back to work for both of us.

I challenged myself today with a window card.

The stamp set I used is the Gather Together bundle from Stampin’Up!. For this card I used clear Window sheets which I adhered with glue dots. The window sheet is attached to the inside of the base card. It measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. My base card is basic black measuring 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I cut about 2″ off the front of my base card. Next I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card (as shown). The piece which had been removed from the front of the card was cut down to 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and I adhered that with glue dots to the window sheet. I decorated the front of the card with the Gather Together DSP. Next I stamped the leave in Soft Suede ink onto Soft Suede cardstock and cut it out with coordinating die. The pumpkin was inked in Cajun Craze onto Cajun Craze cardstock. I decorated the pumpkin with a small piece of Twine. Using glue dots again I adhered the images to the front of the card (as Shown).

Sari’s Card

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today’s card was inspired by my good friend Sari. I have known Sari for about 7 years now and I have to say when I met her she became an instant inspiration to me. It starts with a small story about Sari:

Sari has always been a paper crafter. She used to work in a Scrapbooking store where she had access to so many tools, papers, ideas and other materials. Sari also had the opportunity to collect a small fortune of paper crafting materials. After her divorce she found another relationship where she thought she was safe. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and one night Sari had to make a decision for her own safety and leave the man she thought loved her. She also had to leave all of her scrapbooking materials behind. When I met Sari all she had was a  tool box which contained a small assortment of craft items. Because she had to leave so much behind, Sari had to come up with ideas for cardmaking using paper scraps, paint chips, left over paint samples and so on. When I seen some of her work I was amazed. Below is a sample of Sari’s work.

 

Picture Album using paper scraps and white paper lunch bags

 

The card  below she designed is a simple 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card. For the card base she used white cardstock. The front of the card had 3/4″ removed after folding. The bottom strip measures 5-1/2″ x 1″. The first DSP measures 1-3/4″ x 3-1/2″. The larger DSP measures 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″ and the third DSP which is the small strip on top measures 3-3/4″ x 1″. I thought she used a great color combination.

And this is what I came up with:

I used the same measurements than she did but I based my card on the new Gather Together bundle set which just made its debut. Yes, the new 2019 Holiday Catalog is finally here. This is my material list for this card:
