North Wind Christmas – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0019_edited-9

Hello there,

Now today’s creation is a chilly one with that cold north wind blowing through the trees, brrrrr.  I used a bit of emboss resist magic on this card in order to get that wind in the foreground.

Christmas In the Meadow – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0020

Hello there,

You may not look at the Stampin’ Up! In the Meadow stamp set when picking out images for your Christmas cards but hey, look how well those deer look in snow, darling right?

I combined the deer with the wonderful scroll work greeting images found in the Father Christmas stamp set, what a perfect frame for this scene.

Hanging Your Stocking – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0024

Hello there,

I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set and Die Bundle today.  They sure make for a wonderful Christmas card, especially teamed up with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  I layered different colors of ink on the Brick Wall to give it a more realistic look.  I really love the way it turned out.

On another Note.. . . .

After a super busy Summer gardening and canning things are starting to slow down.  Yesterday I started putting my garden beds to rest for the Winter which involves clearing, adding a big layer of compost, shredded leaves and straw on them to help feed the soil so they will be ready to go again next Spring.
IMG_1203
I put these 3 beds in this past Summer, now I have 6 garden beds.  I was able to can almost 500 jars of food over the Summer.  Makes me tired just thinking about it, lol.
IMG_1205
I still have lettuce, spinach, green onions and kale growing, but everything else is finish for the season.
DSC_0003_edited-4 DSC_0006_edited-5
We grow fruit ourselves and also get some really wonderful local fruit from nearby road stands.  One way I use it is to make homemade wine.  It was time to bottle up some Cherry Wine, Peach Wine and Concord Grape Wine I had started 2 months ago.  Now for the hard part, waiting until next Summer to get to drink it.  :)
I believe I need to go put my feet up a while and start making my garden plan for next year.

Winter Night Reflection – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0039

Hello there,

I’ve got a peaceful Winter scene for you today.  I just love reflection scenes, with only a little more effort you get a much better scene.  A scene you just want to walk into and one you will be proud to send to one of your favorite people.

DSC_0029_edited-4

Here is a tip, when I went to put the card layout together I wanted a piece of Designer Series Paper in the mix but, I didn’t have one that matched in color so the easy solution was to brayer color on a piece of DSP to make it match.  Now it is perfect.

Woodland Buck – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0024

Hello there,

The weather has taken a chilly turn here in Ohio and it really has me in the mood to create some Winter projects.  The Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog has everything one needs to pull together a great card, so I picked a few products and went to creating this morning.

I combined the Woodland Embossing Folder with the Deer Framelit from the Santa’s Sleigh Framelits Set.  My tutorial for today shows how to get color behind the trees along with the Deer.  This project has a lot of texture, especially since I used the Cable Knit Texture Impressions folder on the background panels.  What a great cozy look!
