Sea & Sand

Sea & Sand
You know that I wasn’t to sure about the Sand & Sea Suite Collection. Thinking why the heck do I need a Sea and Sand bundle! But so happy that I purchased it. I’m totally loving it. The DSP is simply gorgeous! And the Pearlescent Specialty is perfect for any project. It has a pearlescent sheen, on both sides! 
I love  how the dies and embossing folder work so well together. And a must to any crafters collection.

Here’s the Bits and Bobs for the card
Base 8.5”x 5.5” scored on the 8.5” side at 4.5” 
Next layer is 5.25”x 4” and embossed with 3D Seashells embossing folder. 
I took one of my Blends brushes and did a light coat of Champagne mist over the images.
The DSP is cut 3.25”x 2” 
The piece for the sentiment is 2.5”x 1.5 “ 
I adhere the DSP onto the embossed image then wrapped twine around.
Added the sentiment piece with dimensionals and adhered. 
Finished it off by adding the Seaside Sticker and Opal Rounds.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Until next time stay safe.
Cheers 🍻

Garden Wishes

Garden Wishes

Dandelions are resilient – they put down roots anywhere and everywhere, they bloom wherever the winds carry them, and they survive in a broad range of climates. Just like the children of those who serve in the armed forces. The dandelion is the official flower of the military child. 
I totally agree with the above. Being both a child and wife of a military member and having to move around Canada every three years, I also found it an adventure. The excitement of exploring a new city or town was the best. I love finding the little shops and restaurants that would become our favourites. Not to mention the wonderful people you meet along the way. Some stay friends forever and when you meet up again it’s like you never left. For me I seem to never forget a face. And the conversation becomes where do I know you from. I’ve been very fortunate to live in all the western provinces, Ontario and Colorado Springs.

Here’s the bits and bobs
Base 8.5” x 5.5” Scored on the longer side at 4.25”
Next layer 4”x 5.25” which is embossed.
The DSP is 2”x3”
On a piece of Very Vanilla stamp the Dandelion and bee stamp with Saddle Brown Stazon and colour  with your Write Markers. I used Mossy Meadow and Bumblebee.
With the dies cut both out using your Mini Boss (Stampin cut and emboss machine)  
And this is hard to believe...that I only dimension the Dandelion, Bumblebee and sentiment! 

Thank so much for stopping by.

Origami Christmas t

Origami Christmas Tree

Oh my! What a super simple card to make. It’s basically all Designers Series Paper and card stock.
And it wouldn’t be a Creatin Sharon’s card with a touch of Bling, right! 
I’m loving the colour combo on this card. The Misty Moonlight is one of my favourite colours. And the Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and to little touch of Early Espresso works so well together. 

Here’s the dimensions for the tree. 

You just need four squares measuring 3 X 3, 2-1/2 X 2-1/2, 2 X 2, and 1-1/2 X 1-1/2. 

And here’s the measurements for the card.

Base 5 1/2” x 8 1/2 inches scored on the longer side at 4 1/4 inches. Your next layer is 4” x 5 1/4”. You’re stupid ESPS 2” x 5”. And your card stock is a 3” x 4” and this piece I did embossed.

Snowflake Wishes

Snowflake Wishes

Here in Winnipeg we woke up to a dusting of that white stuff. Not to much like I said a dusting. Apparently the first winter storm just missed us. Cities to the west of us had receive up to 35 cms of snow!
Thinking we're in this winter for a while!
Today I'm going to share with you another Easy and Quick Christmas Card. 

I'm love doing  my Christmas cards the Blue Tones.
 Thinking that it's because blue is a cool colour. And Winter is a little cool here in Winnipeg!

For this card  I used the Snowflake Wishes bundle. 
Which I think should be in every stampers collection. And you all know how much I love Bling!
I did add a few touches on this card. 
The glimmer adds that touch of bling that I love. 
And if that's not enough, I did add more bling with the Wink of Stella 
and a couple of Rhinestones to the Snowflakes.

Here's the Bits & Bobs

All measurements are in inches

Base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Scored on the long side at 4 1/4"
Second layer is 5 1/4"x 4"
Third layer is 5" x 3 3/4" this piece is embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing folder. 

You are going to need three Snowflakes from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper. 
And two Snowflakes from Whisper White. 

A piece of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper that is cut 3 1/2"x 1"
Your Sentiment will be stamped onto a piece of Whisper White that is 3 1/4"x 3/4". 
I stamped the sentiment with my Night of Navy ink. And then adhered it to the Glimmer Paper using liquid glue. 
Now lets put it together
Glue the Second layer onto the base. 
Add some dimensionals to the backside of your embossed piece and add to the Night of Navy.
I did place dimensionals to the backside of the Snowflakes and the sentiment.
Place your sentiment where ever you like. Just to be sure you have room for your Snowflakes. 
Go ahead and add your Snowflakes. 

Now how easy was that! Look at that gorgeous card you just made! It's beautiful!

Thanks for join me today. 
Have a wonderful day and stay healthy and safe!

Christmas Countdown times Two

Why not get ready for Christmas with thIs hand-crafted Advent Calendar. It would make the perfect addition to any Christmas decor. You can fill these 2 1/8” x 2 1/8” boxes with some small treats. I’m going to full mine with Lindt chocolates. What will you fill yours with?

Today I’m going to show you two different ways I made up the Christmas Countdown Project Kit.
The first one is the supplies you’ll receive when you order the kit. You will definitely be able to decorate all of the 25 mini boxes.  Plus some extras.
And the second one is a little tad different. It has a little sophistication!
Almost like the little Black Dress with a touch of bling. 

I designed the second Advent Calendar by 
cutting out the letters with the Brass Foil that was adhere to the Foam Adhesive sheets to give it a bit of dimension.
With the Basic Black Card Stock I cut 25 2” x 2” squares. Then embossed them with the Winter Snowflake embossing folder.
I cut out 14 scalloped circles with the Layered Circles Framelits from the Brass Foil. I used these to place the numbers on. The  numbers were cut out with the Basic Black Card Stock using the Playful Alphabet Dies. And glue them onto the scalloped circles.  Then adhere them to the Calendar Squares.
The ideas to decorate this Christmas Countdown Kit are endless. 
You can make a Birthday countdown, Easter Bunny countdown, what about a wedding with something special in the last box for the Bride and Groom! There’s no limit to what you can do.
Thank you so much for signing up for my 12 Weeks of Christmas.
Have a wonderful week and we’ll see you all next Wednesday.
