PTI November Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I'm in the thick of making Holiday Cards and gifts as I am sure all of you are too! I loved this ornament die that I've been ogling all year, and finally broke down and bought it.  Here is the inspiration photo from PTI.

I just love those packages in the front with my favorite current color, and all of the ornaments. Using those as jumping off points, here is my entry for this month's Blog Hop. 
 I used the new Wrap it Up Die along with some gold dotted vellum for the package. I attached it to a top fold gold shimmer paper card.  I then used the same gold shimmer paper to make the ornament.

I used the small star from Joy to the World  stamp set to emboss in gold on vellum for the backdrop of the ornament. Using the Petite Places: Nativity Dies, I then embossed the angel and manger from the Petite Places: Nativity in gold as well, leaving everything else white. 

Hope you all had fun creating for the hop, or just hopping along for inspiration.  If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below.  I love hearing from y'all!

Assembly Line Card Making

Hello everyone! I just wanted to share a little project I did for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge, Assembly Line Card Making.

I help a 55+ Card Making Class on Tuesdays! For this week, I decided to jump on the idea of the challenge and do all of the Die Cutting and Stamping by assembly line for class. , then it would be a lot easier and more fun for them.  I used the PTI 2016 Anniversary Stamp Set and Dies called Painted Flowers.  

Here are a few cards from a student.

Sorry I can't fix the photo.  It is so yellow, and doesn't do justice to the cards.  But fabulous cards made by everyone!

I can confess that although I have had this stamp set and dies since February, but never used it.  I can't believe it!  It is such a gorgeous and FUN set!  You can be so creative, throwing caution to the wind and stamping these flowers in any colors you'd like!  Fun, fun, fun!

Hope to see you back here soon!

Survivor Birthday Box

Hey everyone! I am participating in the Wild Card Online Card Class and I LOVE it!  So much fun doing things out of your comfort zone. My brother and SIL are devoted fans of "Survivor" so I thought I would make my brother a birthday card with a Survivor theme.

Here are lots of pictures of the box card.

 I used the MFT Warm Christmas Wishes and Tiki Party stamp sets and Paper Smooches Get Out of Town stamp set.  I used Zig Clear Color Brush Markers to color the images.
I find it amazing that you can get so much depth by just attaching the images in two inside pieces of card stock.  These are GREAT cards and I will be making scores of them for birthdays and anniversaries and any other reason I can conjure up just to make one!

That is my contribution to the wonderful world of crafting today. Can't wait to see what's yours!
