For today’s hop I used the Folk Art Snowflakes stamp set to create two cards. For my first one I used non-traditional colors, a mustard-y yellow and dark gray. The colors are well suited for the folk art style. This set is so pretty!

Here I used the flakes with a traditional red Christmas color and kept it monochromatic.

Have a great day and thanks for hopping!

cheerful snowmen

Good morning! Today I have two cards with a sweet snowmen stamp set from the new November release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps!  We all love snowmen and this set is a must-have…so adorable! It’s called Cheerful Snowmen and they are aptly named… sure to bring a smile to all who receive them! (While you are on the site, be sure to check out the birthday sale. SNSS is turning 12!)

How cute is this snowy fella with his banner? Instead of coloring in his scarf, I dotted it with my marker tip.

My second card was inspired by one that was done maybe 8 or 10 years ago but I still love the look of the snowflakes punched with small circle punches. It really gives a whimsical feel to it!

Have a great day and check out all the new stamps in this month’s release!

such a deer!

Good morning! Today I have a card using thecute and versatile Fur-ever Friends stamp set. I wanted to go monochromatic with this sweet deer and I chose blue!

I decided to have him peeking out and kept my card CAS to keep the focus on the window. This set is a lot of fun!

Have a great day!

a second spring

Good morning! For today’s card I went “old school” and revisited an old technique we used to love…Poppin’ Pastels! All of my images from SNSS’ Autumn Splendor were stamped with Versamark ink and then I applied chalk pastels. You can use a Q-tip or make-up type applicator but I just used my finger tips!

I hope you have fun trying this technique again too. Have a great day!

aloe there!

Good morning! Today I have 2 cards using the Succulents stamp set from this month’s release. I pulled some matching papers from my stash and used the aloe plant image for my first card. Gotta love a punny sentiment!

For my second card, I masked and stamped several images together.

After stamping, I embossed the panel with a finely textured embossing folder and added a few drops of Stickles.

Have a great day!

Grateful Heart

Good morning! Today I used the October Stamp of the Month: Grateful Heart to create 2 cards. I paired my images with some pretty fall papers and a cable knit embossing folder for some warm and cozy greetings. I love this fall arrangement!

Here’s a great pumpkin image for any autumn occasion.

Faith-dex Psalm 17:8

Hello! I am jumping on the Memorydex bandwagon today. A few years ago I was interested in these cards but never got around to creating one. Back in 2015, Heidi Swapp came out with the punch, some dies, and cards, etc. to fit into her Memorydex box (sort of like a library card system). She also has a spinner type rack (shown here). These are based on the old Rolodex system but with fun, creative cards rather than addresses/phone numbers.

Fast forward to today… some Bible journalers are now creating these cards with faith based inspiration and bible verses on them as a fun, creative reminder to keep on display. The SNSS Creative Worship group is focusing on these a bit this month and have dubbed them “Faith-dex” cards.  So what better time for me to jump in?

Before I get to my card, there have been lots of questions about where to purchase the supplies. Here are some of the supplies I am starting with… Heidi Swapp Memorydex holder and Oval dies, Tabs dies, Everyday Kit, Monthly cards and punch. Some people make their own tray to hold them and others sell them. Just do a search for Memorydex tray.

I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Singing Praises stamp set and stamped one of the birds onto patterned paper. This was added to a brown die cut card and I added the fringe trim with Scor-tape.

Here’s the Heidi Swapp Memorydex holder. As far as the size of these cards, there seems to be some variance on the height but as long as they are no more than 4″ wide and 3 3/4″ high (for those who use the spinning Memery-dex), then you should be good! You can cut your own cards and punch the holes on the bottom. If you don’t have the Memorydex punch yet, there are tutorials on how to measure and punch with a regular hole punch.

I made a few extras for a swap!

Have a great day!

sing!

Good morning! Today I’m sharing some CAS cards with the Sweet ‘n Sassy Sing Loud, Scribble Flowers, and Birthday Greetings. I popped up the cloud on my first card and debated on the sentiment I would choose. I finally decided to simply let it say “sing”!

I kept my second card black & white with a pop of color in the flowers. I love this style! The large flower center has some Stickles.

Have a great day!
