OMGoodness, it feels like forever since I made a post! 😦 I have been so busy with school starting and everything that goes with it! But, today, I have a card I made, and a guest! 🙂 So we’ll get right down to business! 🙂
I made my card for Merry Monday #169. The challenge is to use Light Green, Dark Green and Red:) I will also enter it into the challenge blog over at Send A Smile 4 Kids, which this week is “Anything Goes”🙂
My card is using some brand new products from Stampin’ Up! that will be available Sept. 1, 2015! 🙂 If you would be interested the new catalog or any of the products you see here, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org:)
This card is made with the new Jingle All the Way stamp set and the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies! 🙂 I bought them as a bundle and saved 15%! 🙂 The Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies, also come with, as you might guess, another die with a horse and sleigh. I actually combined two different edgelits on one line for my card. I also used a new Embossing Folder called Softly Falling. The sentiment is from the Jingle All the Way stamp set, and yes, it’s curved:)
I used the little house edgelet on the left and cut it from Whisper White, then I colored it with my Stampin’ Write Real Red Marker. On the right, I used the tree edgelit and cut the trees from Garden Green. I just cut the trees and a small extra piece that I used to glue my trees to the house card stock. I topped it off with some Stampin’ Up! Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine (retired). I’m very please with how this turned out! 🙂 I actually got the idea for this card from the new Holiday Catalog;) You can find the stamp set and the dies on page 12 of the new catalog:) The embossing folder is on the top left of page 24:)
Is it Halloween yet? Well, you’re going to think so when you see the next cards by my guest, Karen Peterson! 🙂 Karen is from NE and she has used some card kits from Paper Wishes. I don’t know anything about Paper Wishes, except that Karen sends in some really great cards for our kids at Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂
Isn’t this a great card?! The top photo is the front with the card closed, then I took a photo of the side view open. Finally I took a photo of the inside that you can see from looking at the front open. It’s an advanced easel card, I think it will be a great teen card. I don’t think it’s too scary, what do you think?
I love this card, do you think it’s too scary? I think it’s fine for a teen, not for a younger one.
Here’s the inside and the front of another card:) Hmmm, now that I’m seeing them here, they all look like teen cards:) Not to worry, I know I’m getting more Halloween cards very soon! 🙂 I’m usually very short on teen cards, so these are great! Thank you so much Karen for supporting our kids and our work through Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂
That’s all I have for today, but I hope to be back soon with more Fall/Halloween cards! 🙂
Thanks for coming by today, I’m always thankful for your interest! 🙂
