Aspen Christmas Card

Judy and I are at it again.  We love to challange each other.  Tonight's challenge was simply to use page 52 in the wishes book.  As I was gathering my materials I passed over the Aspen paper pack and thought about my newly purchased Dementional Elements Snowflakes.  I just had to use this paper pack.  I am quite happy with the outcome. 
The recipe is as follows.  5X7 card base.  Aspen B&T 4.5 X 5 and 2.5 X 5.  There is a 1X5 piece of outdoor denim card stock.  The circle is a outdoor denim 3" circle with some Aspen B&T cut to 2.5" inside.  The outdoor denim for the letter area is 2 3/4 X 6 1/4 the twilight is 2 1/2 X 6.  The snowflake is a dementinal element that was embossed in white then glitter placed over the white and embossed again.  The snowflake brad is from a craft store.  The ribbon is also from a craft store.  The stamp set used is Card Chatter - Christmas.  I used outdoor denim ink.  I actually distressed using white daisy ink.

Boo Card

It was a chilly fall day here in Great Falls, MT.  What better than to sit on the couch watching old movies and creating.  This is a fun card I know I made one similar to this not too long ago.  I wanted to play with purple and orange today.  I used a sizzix die cut ghost, pansy purple card stock, orange card stock and b&t from a bulk package of game time (I think).  None the less it has a cute effect.  The Boo is from October word puzzle stamp set. 

What The Hay? Scrapbook Page

This is a sample of the page that I am teaching in my class on Saturday, September 26th. 
The paper is Twitterpated.  The layout was found in the Imagine book.  Sweet Symphony Pg 24.  I do have the pages reversed.  I used chocolate card stock, sorbet card stock, colonial white card stock, chocolate distressing ink the dots and stripes from twitterpated.  I reversed the dot paper to give me the light brown.  Very simple but it looks amazing.  The pictures here are of the What The Hay festival held a little over an hour away from Great Falls, MT.  This is where the locals make hay sculptures and allow the general public to vote on them.  I liked the N-hay-vy ship myself.  The imagination in this festival was wonderful.

Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are always the hardest.  A dear friend of mine lost a loved one.  This card was really hard to make.  I so love the paper pack so hopefully she will love the card.  The card was made using the simple pleasures paper pack and stick ease.  I used a template from the wishes book pg 77.  I ran the paper through my printer so that I could get the perfect saying.  I used chocolate ribbon from the ribbon rounds.  I distressed the edges with the chocolate distressing ink.

Beary Nice Birthday

It has been a while since I last posted.  I have a new job now and I am usually tired when I get home.  I devote my weekends to creating and family.  This card was made for someone that I work with.  We needed a masculine birthday card.  This immediately came to mind. 
I used New England Ivy textured card stock, bamboo card stock, B&T from the back country bulk papers, chocolate gross grain ribbon, chocolate ink, cocoa ink, and the curly greetings stamp set, curly sentiments stamp set and the beary best stamp set.  The silver for the fish was purchased from a craft store.
