World Card-Making Day Grateful Chalk Talk Card

Here’s another quick and easy card to send out on World Card-Making Day!  This card features our Chalk Talk stamp set and my favorite embossing folder – Polka Dot.  This color combination is a favorite of mine too.  A little punched out heart with a gem in the center adds just the right touch.

Gently Falling Laminate Swatch Cards

I’m a craft hoarder.  There, I’ve said it.  I love to go into any kind of store and look for items to craft with, sometimes buying (or if free, taking) too much to use at one time.  Then I have to find a way to deal with it in my limited space.  Craft hoarders can be organized…key word-“can”.  I try, but alas, I don’t always attain my goals in that.

On a not-so-recent trip to a large do-it-yourself store, I found gorgeous laminate examples up for grabs.  Like any good crafting hoarder, I took more than I needed, but squirreled it away for another day.  I found some of these again just a few days ago, and it was if I found gold.  The colors screamed fall to me.

Here are the two I came up with using Gently Falling:

Christmas in July Wreath Card

Last night was my Christmas in July Stamp Camp.  My home was packed with Christmas Card makers!  Everyone loved the cards, Christmas treats, and the giggles we shared!  I am so blessed to have such fun-loving ladies as my customers.

Here is one of the favorites from last night:

Christmas in July Wreath Card

The wreath is created as follows:

Use the Petals A Plenty Embossing Folder on a strip of Old Olive card stock.  Punch out a 3/4″ circle and then center the scallop circle punch over the circle and punch out.  Color berries with Real Red marker.  Ink up a QTip with Craft White ink and smear over the top of the embossed piece for the snow effect.  Attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
