Pretty Kitty Card – Coloring with Markers

JenniferCards, Techniques1 Comment

I saw this general card idea from Shannon Jaramillo a while back when I needed some inspiration for a card.  But as I usually do with cards, I took some of my favorite elements from the card, and then tweaked some of the other details to get to use some of my favorites too! I wanted to focus on the cute kitty from the Pretty Kitty stamp set, and all of the images from that set are outline images – so they just BEG to be colored in!  And so I went with the easiest way to color, my Stampin’ … Read More

Reindeer Merry Christmas Card with Foxy Friends

JenniferCards, Christmas0 Comments

Just popping in for a quick share today!  If you didn’t see yesterday, quick reminder to check out the Year-End Closeout List and Sale.  Many items are while supplies last and I’ve seen a couple updated clearance rack items sell out already.  So, you want to make sure you check it out sooner rather than later! OK, PSA done, now back to the card.   I love the Foxy Friends stamp set, but I especially love how you can make it something different than a fox! This reindeer was just easy to put together rand I just used Crumb Cake … Read More

The Year End Closeout Sale is Here!

JenniferPromotions0 Comments

I was all stoked about the Online Extravaganza, and I knew the Holiday Catalog retiring list was coming soon… but I didn’t know until just a couple days ago that Stampin’ Up was going to up the ante by coming out with a full Year-End Closeout sale! Of course, they didn’t tell me what was going to be in the sale or exactly how it was all going to work, so I had to wait until this morning to check it out.  But now that I’ve figure out all the deals and possible confusion points, I wanted to make sure … Read More

Clean & Simple Card with Lovely as a Tree

JenniferCards, Techniques0 Comments

So yesterday I shared a Christmas card with Lovely as a Tree, so today I thought I’d share another idea with the same stamp set only NOT Christmas!  It uses another fun techinique – Faux Torn Edges – that I love for my clean and simple cards.  It is also great if you are doing a challenge for a single layer card too! How to do Faux Torn Edges: Rip a piece of paper, preferably something thin like copy or printer paper, so you have the torn edge pattern you like. Place the torn edge across your cardstock and hold … Read More

Vintage Christmas Card with Clear Block Stamping

I have totally had a crafting-crush on these Mini Pinecones embellishments since I first got a chance to play with them.  They are so little, but oh so details and super cute!  My biggest challenge was actually getting them out of the container and onto my projects. Between the “don’t want to use them up” and trying to figure out where to put a 3D embellishment (though it is little so, it is still possible to mail), I just kept admiring them on my desk.  Come on, admit it… you have something like that in your craft goodies too. 🙂 … Read More

I know a lot of us are checking out the sales and looking for great deals for our family and friends, and you’ll be seeing a lot today about Small Business Saturday.  This is a day when we are reminded that there are so many people trying to support their families and their dreams by creating and/or selling awesome products without the big corporate behind them running the show.  It takes a lot of guts and a lot of work to build up a small business, but the rewards are worth it!  I am so grateful for the ability to … Read More

Clean and Simple Vintage Christmas Card with Stitched with Cheer

JenniferCards, Christmas0 Comments

If you are like me, you love making those beautiful holiday cards with all the details and the fun pieces and touches.  However, I can’t imagine mass producing a TON of cards like that.  So, I have fun making onesies and twosies of the time consuming cards and then fill in the gaps when I start running out of time with simple but classy cards that I can turn out a bunch in a short amount of time.  Now, I LOVE the Paper Pumpkin kit we got this month for that sort of thing (and in fact, I plan to … Read More

I have a fun Christmas card idea for you today… and I realized that a bunch of the items I used for it are 25-30% off with this week’s sale to boot!  Sweet!  This was a card I created for my Fun n’ Crafty Team swap.  We always do a card swap when a new catalog comes out to help give us all samples to share at our events and to inspire each other for projects to try out too!  So, I had pulled out a couple of the new items I was excited to play with – the Christmas … Read More

Sending Best Fishes with the Jar of Love Stamp Set

JenniferCards0 Comments

I’m back and sharing another card that we made at last week’s card class.  This was another one where I had fun using some of my Holiday catalog purchases for a NON-Holiday card.  Can you spot a few of them? It was also a chance for me to play more with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Have I mentioned how great they are?  I love that you get a variety pack so you get 4 sizes of squares, circles, and ovals all in ONE pack!  See, I know me and if they had come out with 3 different packs, I would … Read More
