Jackie

Hi there and welcome back to my blog.

Yesterday I mentioned that I have a friend who is battling cancer.  As soon as I received this bundle I knew I was going to make a card for her…. here it is.

I made this card specifically for Jackie it fits her like a glove.  Jackie is a woman of God and she is also a girly girl.  She coordinates her outfits with detail. She loves lace and ruffle, she loves feminine and tasteful attire.  Jackie always coordinates her outfits by color.  She matches her scarf, her shoes, her bag everything.  She is so stinking cute.

I will be sending this card to Jackie today.  I hope that when she receives it, that it makes her smile.  Jackie is one of my mentors.  She sends me emails from her hospital bed with her thoughts of the day.  Jackie see’s things through her heart which is filled with Jesus, so I listen to her carefully.  I’m so blessed to know her.

Jackie loves to make cards too.  She sends everyone she knows cards for every occasion. Jackie gives so much so often.  She just has to get better soon, this world needs Jackie she is a light for so many.

Jackie knows that God is love so she will enjoy this card.  I bet she keeps it right by her bed and looks at it often.  Not because I made it but instead as a reminder of who God is during difficult times.

This card is soft and soothing.  It’s made with Very Vanilla card stock and Champagne foil paper.  The champagne color reminds me of Jackie because it has a very soft rose pink hue.  She is going to love it, it”s perfect for her.

In this picture you may think the card is silver, but it is not.  The champagne is gorgeous.  I really like all of the foil papers, but I think this one is my favorite.  If you don’t have it you need to try it.  You will be glad that you did.

Please say a prayer for Jackie. And thank you in advance.

With Sympathy and Hope

Happy Monday my friends.  Today I want to share with you one of the new bundles that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog.  It’s called HOLD ON TO HOPE.  I’m so glad I purchased this bundle because I already need to use it.

 

Two men in our lives passed away, one last night and one last week.  It is such a hard time, I hope sending this little gesture of love brings some comfort our families.

As you know, I love all white. I think all white is clean, striking and elegant.   The New Organza White Ribbon worked out perfectly with this design.  The CROSS OF HOPE FRAMELITS are amazing.  You can make so many different styles of crosses with them. For this card I cut out the intricate cross and thin solid cross, then I  layered them.  Layering them changes up the whole look.

 

Adding silver foil paper to the design really dressed this card up even more.   I showed it to my mom and she said….oooh where did you get that card?   It’s so pretty.  I laughed and said mom, I just made it.  The fact that she thought it was purchased is a compliment in itself ( I think).

Most of you know I love texture too.  The striped folder image (new in the Occasions Catalog ) layered on top of the trellis folder image is gorgeous.  Try layering different folder images.   I think you will be surprised at the outcome. The effect is very pretty.

To hold the tales of the ribbon in place I placed a dot of liquid glue onto the card stock, let it get tacky and then placed the ribbon on it.  The glue dries completely clear so even though the ribbon is thin and see through you can’t even tell that the ribbon was glued down.

I need to make one more card using this bundle.  Another one of our friends is fighting cancer and I want her to feel our support, hope and prayers.  Her card will say GOD IS LOVE and HOLD ON TO HOPE.  Both of those sentiments are in the stamp set so the next card will come together quickly too.

Color Fusers Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!  I’m excited to announce that I have been asked to be part of this fabulous group.  As a member of this team I will be posting A COLOR FUSER idea the first Monday of every month.

This month our blog hop gives you a variety of projects that you can case using Stampin’ Up Colors, Emerald Envy~Cherry Cobbler~Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.

I made this Christmas card using this month’s color fusers colors.  The stamp sets that I used were meant to be used during Halloween, but I wanted to show you how you can continue using them during Christmas.

The sentiments on this card are from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. I’m here to show you how versatile Stampin’ Up! colors and stamps really are.

The JOY JOY JOY and the chimney are  stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink to coordinate with the card base. JOY is one of the stamps in this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  I dressed up JOY by placing a pearl as the dot on the lower case J. Adding a simple pearl can take your project to another level.

I layered Emerald Envy card stock onto the Cherry Cobbler card base and then began creating my scene on the Whisper White clean slate. The house stamp is from the stamp set ” SWEET HOME”.  I stamped it using Tranquil Tide ink onto Whisper White card stock.  Then I fussy cut it out.  I did the same thing with the door and the window.  I used a striped boarder stamp from he same set and Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp a decorative trim on the house.  Every house needs a chimney so I took the brick fence post from the stamp set “GRAVEYARD GATE” inked it up, stamped it and fussy cut it out too.  Then all I had to do was mount the chimney behind the house.  The post worked as a chimney just as I imagined.  WHOOHOO!

I also wanted to suggest that Santa was sliding down the chimney, so I used a Cherry Cobbler marker and colored the head of the little ghost in the “SWEET HOME” set and stamped it onto Whisper White card stock.  Next I colored it in and added a WHITE PERFECT ACCENT to the tip.  Viola! Santa’s hat.  I then placed the hat at the top of the chimney to complete my vision.

The Spriggs on the gable of the house are from the “Pretty Pines Thinlets”.  I needed the spriggs to stand out so I used Emerald Envy card stock.  They now stand out and coordinate with the layer piece under the Whisper White scene,

The finishing touches were the embossing paste and the dazzling diamonds glitter.  Those two products created snow instantly.

For the inside of the card I used the same thinlits, pearls and colors.  The Merry and Bright sentiment is another stamp from this months Paper Pumpkin.

I hope I’ve encouraged you to combine your stamp sets when creating.  LOOK at your stamps and see what other images pop out at you.

Go out of the box with your colors.  Who would have thought these four colors would look good together?

Here is a close up of the chimney and Santa’s hat.  You can also see the detail of the candy striped trim.  SU paste and glitter are perfect for tis time of year, so grab some.

Stampin’ Up! provides so many ribbons.  This one is our Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon.  This ribbon comes in the five In~Colors.  Collect them with time, they add so much to your work.
