Thank You Cards Reverse Masking Techinque

I made these as a Christmas gift for my Hair Stylist. She likes to send Thank you cards to all her new clients. I apologize for the poor photo quality, I was finding it quite difficult to photograph
the whisper white paper without washing out the image. I got my inspirations for this card from
Dawn Griffith . I wanted something easy and flat for mailing. I made eight cards two each of Pink Pirouette, Barely Banana, Pale Plum, & Bashful Blue.
Stamps: Essence of Love (retired) & Flight of the Butterfly.
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Choc. Chip, Pink Pirouette, Barely Banana, Pale Plum, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, 2-Way Glue, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Gift Card Holder

I needed a quick and easy gift card holder and this is what I came up with. Very Easy. I used a 4" x 8" piece of Ski Slope DSP and Scored it at 3" & 7 ". Used a Snowflake Scallop edge punch on top flap and place a piece of Whisper White behind it. Made a band with Whisper White, it just slides off the holder. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark first then into Baja Breeze onto Whisper White and covered with Irridescent Ice embossing powder.

Stamps: Curly Label Punch Bundle
Ink: Versamark & Baja Breeze
Paper: Whisper White & Ski Slope DSP
Accessories: Curly Label Punch & Dimensionals

Christmas Card from my Parents!

Hello Everyone :-) I've been busy getting last minute things together for Christmas. My Mom just started stamping about a year ago with the help of my Sister Candy. I just had to show it off as it turned out beautiful. The inside is a photo of my parents, (John & Donna) they have been married for 47 years! This is the best Christmas present ever. Thanks Mom (((hugs)))!
If you're wondering, I got the Crafty Gene from my Mom.

Snow Man Christmas Card

First, I would like to thank Dawn Griffith as I cased her card!
Go check out her site, she's awesome. Thanks Dawn :-)
If you check out the close up of his face, you can see a little more detail. I used the white gel pen on top and on the brim of his hat to make it look like snow and used 2-way glue and dazzling diamonds for a little sparkle. The band on his hat is Baja Breeze, I used a blender pen. To give the snowman a little depth I did an outline of Bashful Blue. I used a Q-Tip in Pink Pirouette and lightly dabbed it on his cheek. This is a very easy card to make and flat for mailing!
Stamps: Punch Pals, Snow Swirled, Heard from the Heart
Ink: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Black Stazon, Pink Pirouette

Christmas Tag

Just another tag idea I had. The real truth, just had to try some more of the MS glitter ;-)
The Red Star was stamped with Real Red Craft ink and applied Heat & Stick powder, heat and then added MS Garnet glitter, heat again. Let cool and use large Star punch to cut out. The small star was punched out first on whisper white and applied Versamark then Heat & Stick, heat and then applied MS Peridot glitter, heat again. Both stars adhered with dimensionals.

Stamps: Spotlight on Christmas, Snow Swirled
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Craft Real Red, Versamark
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Ski Slope DSP

Gift Wrap Idea

I belong to a club called Prairie Stampers, we have around 80 members. Our club meets once a month to do projects and learn new techniques. I love to see what others can do, it's amazing! Well, tomorrow evening is our annual Christmas potluck and gift exchange. Sorry, can't tell you what's inside :-(
I decided to make my own wrapping paper using the kraft postal wrapping paper. The Reindeer was stamped in Choc. Chip and the snowflakes in Creamy Carmel. A Very Merry Christmas to You was stamped in Riding Hood Red. The snowflake on the tag is SU Chipboard covered in Whisper White then put on some Heat & Stick powder, heat with heat tool and apply Dazzling Diamonds glitter and heat again. It's real sparkly!
Stamps: Winter Post, Best Yet, Snow Swirled
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Creamy Carmel, Choc. Chip, Black Stazon, Whisper White (Craft)
Cardstock: Real Red, DSP - Ski Slope & Kraft postal wrapping paper.
Accessories: SU Snowflake chipboard, Heat & Stick powder, Heat Tool, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Real Red Ribbon, SU Gold elastic cord (to hold tag on)
