A few cards The Girlio made:


Love how she wrote just a few letters of her sentiment in each speech bubble.  Super cute.  🙂

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Here is one last Christmas card:


Supplies: Paper: Basic Grey; Tag and Snowflakes: Pink Paislee; Stamp: Teresa Collins; Tape: Tim Holtz

Here’s another muted paper collection from Pink Paislee that I just loved this Christmas-very unlike my usual style, but I love how the card turned out!  I didn’t quite get the patterned paper up to the top of the card-oops!  To cover this up, I added some tissue tape.  Then, I decided to add some more tape to the tag.  I folded the tape in half, and then threaded it through the tag-love the look!  The Merry Christmas was stamped onto the tag, but I don’t think you can hardly tell that it didn’t just come that way.  My daughter informed me it needed a little something more, so I added the three little glitter dots from the snowflake pack, and there you have it-a really fun card!  This card is perfect for a music lover-in my case, this card went to my parents!

Anyway, hope you enjoyed all my Christmas cards this season!  Wishing you and yours the very Merriest of Christmases this year!  🙂

Happy Christmas Eve!!!!

Here’s yet another Christmas card for your viewing enjoyment!  🙂


Supplies: Stickers: Basic Grey, Studio Calico (letters); Stamp: Impression Obsession; Ink: Tim Holtz

For this card, I covered the paper with Peeled Paint Distress Stain.  Then, I sprayed water on my pine needle stamp, and pressed the paper onto the stamp.  It gave a really cool muted stamped background that really looks like a tree-love this technique!  I sped up the dry time with my heat gun. Then, I just dusted the back of my sticker with powder (to get rid of the stick) and adhered it to the card with dimensional adhesive.  Then, I added the sentiment.  A super easy card, but I love the result!  This is an especially good way to use up giant stickers too-sometimes those are hard to find uses for!

Hope you are having a great Christmas Eve!  🙂

Kids’ Craft #63-Thank You Cards

21 Dec

This week, The Girlio’s Girl Scout troop had a little Christmas party and received some of the patches they have been working towards.  I volunteered to put together supplies for the girls to make some thank you cards for the various people we visited on field trips this fall-the fire station, the police station, Care and Share (local food bank), and we had a paramedic visit us at a meeting as well.

I basically just punched out a bunch of shapes using scraps from my drawer, included a few doilies cut with my Silhouette, and stamped some of the shapes with a thank you stamp from Studio Calico.  I made a sample card (in case they needed an idea) which is why some of the cards look kind of the same, but really they got to do whatever they wanted.  Here are the cards the girls made:


Turned out cute, didn’t they?

Here is a picture of The Girlio making hers:
