Christmas Card Help

December 2, 2008 - 8:35pm

A while back I posted a picture of a stamp set I wanted...Made of Snow by PaperTrey Ink. Well, I got it from my friend Katie for my birthday and I am going to her house on Saturday to make my Christmas cards. I think I am going to use these colors: Red Riding Hood, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. You can look at the colors on this website.

What I am hoping to get from you are ideas for a layout and possibly examples using this color combo. I am going to do a white card base and stamp with black ink. I will most likely use a sentiment from the set on the inside of the card along with "Happy Holidays" or "Merry Christmas" or something. I also like the sentiment in this stamp set. So please let me know if you have any suggestions for me. I have been out of the crafting loop for so long that this project is starting to overwhelm me a bit! :)

If you have any suggestions, post them in the comments or send me an email at info@craftsonawhim.com. Thanks in advance for your help!

These are the last of the cards that I made at Katie's Stamp-A-Stack. I am finally getting around to posting them. I thought it would be fun to show them after I posted the word stamp sets I want since some of the words were used in these cards.

There's another Stamp-A-Stack coming up next weekend and I am excited to get my fill of card making for a little while. This also means I will have more cards to show! Yay!

SU Word Sets

October 24, 2008 - 9:08am

These are some of the word sets I really want from Stampin' Up!. I have an obsession with word stamps. I feel like I can never have enough. I would love to have these for things to put on the inside of cards. I feel like that is something I never have enough of. And I feel like I am always saying the same thing every time on the inside of cards. These sets might help alleviate that. :)

SU Image Sets

These are some of the stamp sets I really want from Stampin' Up!. I want so many stamps right now and hopefully I will get them for my birthday or Christmas or I am going to have to buy them myself. The only problem is that I have a hard time justifying buying anything right now when the house is packed up and it will all go to storage! :)

These are just the image sets I want. I will show you the word sets I want soon!

(*NOTE* I accidentally deleted the original post for this and I didn't remember what it said. So it may be slightly different. I didn't want anyone to think they were crazy and read something, didn't see it, then imagined it! That would be something I would do!)

Here are some more cards from the Stamp-A-Stack at Katie's. I tried changing them all slightly, but still trying to keep them similar...and simple. I think I succeeded! I just love the color combination of these cards. It's so cheerful!

On another note, our house is still for sale, which means all of my craft stuff is still packed up. Most of the time I am ok with it, but there are a few times I really wish I could dive in and make some cards. (Also, my card stash is getting depleted quickly and I am going to have to have a card day at a friend's house just to get more on hand!....oh Katie!!! This means you!) So hopefully, we'll get our house sold and then I can unpack and go nuts again. :)

Fall Cards

October 6, 2008 - 8:18pm

It seemed fitting to show some fall cards since we are having wonderful fall weather (at least here in Minnesota we are)! These are a few of the fall cards I made at Katie's last Stamp-A-Stack. I put different sayings on each of the cards and made the image in the center different on each of them. I gave the last one to my mom for her birthday and she loved it! Enjoy!

Tall Cards

I made these at Katie's Stamp a Stack a while back. I am just now getting around to posting them. I have a few others that I will be slowly posting as well.

I thought these turned out really cute. This isn't a style of card that I do very often, so it was fun to step out of my comfort zone. We did a lot of punching on the card. I could have stamped the dots, but I thought it looked more fun to take the time and punch all the holes. I also like how we attached the colored circle part way over the edge and then cut it off. It adds a lot of character and added dimension. Katie did a great job coming up with great cards to make for varying levels of card-making-skill! Enjoy!

Made Of Snow

September 17, 2008 - 5:43pm

If you didn't know this about me already, I love snowmen! I think snowmen are so adorable and I just can't get enough of them (although my hubby would tend to disagree and say I have PLENTY of them!). So when I saw this new set from Paper Trey Ink, I was giddy with joy! The little dilemma is that I will probably never get them because I am too cheap! :) So I am going to live vicariously through other people that have it! :) I just thought it was a cute set, so I thought I would share. (And I don't have much else to write about today. :)
