Gentle Peace

Todays card was a "lets see how this idea turns out" card.  In looking at it, I think if I make this one again, I would add some layers behind the main image.

I used Silver Embossing powder after stamping the image with VersaMark ink.  Really this card took all of 10 minutes to make, so really fast to do.  I know the card stock is retired, but I don't know the name of it, but you could use Night of Navy if you have that.  The stamp set is Gentle Peace.

I don't know why it looks gold or why the light looks yellow either.  Truly is a Clean and Simple card that requires no extra postage, which is great if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make and send out.

Wondrous Wreath Door

Today is CASE of a card that I received in the mail from a fellow demonstrator and blogger, Donna K. Donna got a card and idea from Lorri H., her upline.  I'm so glad that my fellow demonstrators are a sharing bunch!

Donna's card had a envelope in her mail slot but I wanted mine to be just a bit more Christmasy, so I added the Santa Claus-North Pole to mine.

Stamp set: Wondrous Wreath and Framelits
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
Card stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Gold Foil
Simple Scored Tool
Modern Label punch
Antique Brad

Hope your week is off to a great start!  Mary

Festival of Trees Again in Lost Lagoon

This will be my last Festival of Trees card.  I was inspired by a card made by Kimberly Van D.  I changed my just slightly as I don't have the little snowflake embellishment she used or the Star embossing folder.

I once again used my Hearts & Stars Decorative Mat to add stars to the background in Whisper White Craft Ink. 

Stamp set: Festival of Trees and Wondrous Wreath
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Lost Lagoon
Ink: Pool Party and Lost Lagoon
Tree punch and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack-Star
Silver Glimmer paper
Lost Lagoon ribbon
Frosted Sequins

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Mary

Festival of Trees

Since I had this stamp set still on the craft table, I continued to make another card with it.

This is a "no extra postage" required card, very simple and easy to make.  I don't have the Star embossing folder, yet, so I used my Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask and some Whisper White Craft Ink to add a few stars to the background.  I like how it turned out!  Ribbon is Cherry Cobbler from last year, but you could use the current Cherry Cobbler ribbon or even the Burlap ribbon too.

Stamp set: Festival of Trees
Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Tree Punch and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack-Star
Linen Thread

I like how clean and simple this card is.  Thanks for stopping in to see me!  Mary

Cards for Addie

The only thing six-year-old Addie Fausett has on her last Christmas list is cards--preferably the handmade kind. Addie, who has a condition called diffuse atrophy, and her family were told by doctors that this Christmas would probably be her last. So when we saw the article on describing this family's wish for their little girl's last Christmas, we thought, who better to make this gift happen than amazing Stampin' Up! customers?

If you would like to participate and support this family during a difficult time, please take a few minutes to tell all of your cardmaking friends, and then send handmade cards to

Addie Lynn and Sisters, P.O. Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632

Addie has two older sisters, please remember them too.  Mary
