BIG HI

Featuring stamps from The Stamp Market and Concord & 9th

Happy July! Today’s card will get you thinking of fireworks and the Fourth of July with its brightly colored sunshine rays and sparkly sequins. It’s another card made from a background I made awhile back and put into my stash. I wish I could say that my “stash” pile has become real small at this point, but it seems the more I use, the more I make. 😉

This card featues the Stamp Market BIG HI die.

Supplies: Stamp Market Big HI, Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Stamp, Catherine Pooler Inks: Fiesta Blue, Flirty Fuschia, Grass Skirt, Party Dress, Black card stock, Craft foam, Pretty Pink Posh Clear flat sequins, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110

Christmas Cards – Day 5

Only 3 days to Christmas, how are you doing? Do you have any more shopping to do? How about the wrapping? Is that done yet? 🙂

Today, I am featuring Neat & Tangled again. This time I am featuring their Scandinavian Prints Stamp & Die Set. It came out last year and I really have fun with it. The cards today resemble yesterday’s because the Tree Trio stencil compliments the Scandinavian Prints set and I used Catherine Pooler Inks on these cards, just as I did in yesterday’s featured cards .

Here is a picture of the whole set together and then you will see a picture of each card individually.

Each of the cards uses the following materials: Neat & Tangled Scandinavian Prints Christmas Stamp & Die Set, Gina K Designs Amalgum Ink, Brutus Monroe Icicle Embossing Powder, Altenew Gold Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, Ranger Silver Embossing Powder, Deco Foil in Gold, Pink Melon, Aqua (in some of the pictures the foil looks like black ink), Simon Says Stamps Wonky Rectangle Die, Craft Foam, and Catherine Pooler Inks: Tiki Torch, All That Jazz, Grass Skirt, Lime Rickey, Party Dress, and Flirty Fuschia.

Here’s a look at each one individually.

Glory to the new born King!

Have a blessed day!

Christmas Cards – Day 4

Christmas blessings everyone! Yesterday I had the fun of picking out some chocolates to put in my family’s stockings. A little something different for each person, courtesy of Hilliard’s Chocolates in Mansfield, MA. What I love the most about shopping there is that they give out free samples while you walk around and shop. Yummy!

Today I have 4 cards that feature Neat & Tangled‘s Tree Duo Stencils. This stencil came out in 2017 and I had so much fun using them last Christmas that I went right to them this year.

Take a look.

These bright and cheerful cards were made using Catherine Pooler inks.

I will post an individual picture of each of these cards but will do only one write up of the materials I used. All cards use Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest #80 and/or #110 card stock. (The center card has green cardstock also.) The sentiments were chosen from Neat & Tangled Joyful Sentiments Stamps and My Favorite Things Handwritten Holiday Stamp Set.

All the cards feature Catherine Pooler inks in the following colors: Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt, Flirty Fuschia, Party Dress, Tiki Torch and Versafine Onyx Black Ink (for the sentiments).

The special features of this card are from Honey Bee Stamps Winter Wonder Background Stencils, Dream Weaver Embossing Paste, WOW opague Bright White Embossing Powder, Craft Smart White Acrylic Paint.
This card features Neat & Tangled Tree Duo Stencils, Neat & Tangled Joyful Sentiments, Honey Bee Stamps Winter Wonder Background Stencils, Nuvo Glimmer Paste, and My Favorite Things In & Out Stitched Rounded Rectangles.

The last card I am featuring today was not pictured in the trio but has the same characteristics as the trio of cards.

Thank you for stopping by and letting me show you what I’ve been up to. 🙂

Happy Birthday Card & Envelope

I have another card today that is going back to November when it was my daughter, Holly’s, birthday. I had ordered Concord & 9th‘s new Birthday Stacks Stamp & Die Set and couldn’t wait to try it out. I really like the set and can’t wait to play around with it a little bit more…but it will have to wait until after Christmas. 🙂

To make this card I used Catherine Pooler Inks in the following colors: Mardi Gras, Pixie Dust, All That Jazz, Tiara, Lime Rickey, and Party Dress. I also used Neenah Solar White, Classic Crest cardstock for both the card and the envelope. I highly recommend this stamp set, it has so much potential for fun!
