Stocking card from GI Fundraiser

Good evening!  Hope you are all well, we're starting to get better here, just little Hannah who is under the weather now.  A quick post tonight...teachers and colleagues gifts yet to package, baking and cleaning to be done...yikes!  This card I made at Heather's annual GI Fundraiser.  It uses the Stitched Stocking stamp set and stocking punch.  Colours are Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler.  The Limeade is embossed with the snowflakes embossing folder (one of my favourites!).  Hope you're all ready for this weekend (wish I was!!)  Take care and thanks for stopping by :) Steph

Medallion Christmas Card

Good Sunday Morning to you all!  I must say I was pleasantly surprised to see some nice fluffy stuff on the ground!  It just seems to add a little more Christmas spirit don't you think?  We're going into finish off the last of the shopping today and hopefully we get it all done!  Feeling much better from the new meds for my sinuses, thanks ladies for understanding about Friday night, I'm looking forward to Monday! OK, onto today's card...I made this one with the Ladies from the Largie Church, I think it's safe to say that it's my favourite this year.  I  love the Meadallion stamp, I find it's so versatile, you can use it for weddings, birthdays, and as you can see Christmas!  I also used the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, punches are the Jumbo Snowflake, Word Window and Modern Label.  Colours are Cherry Cobbler and Naturals White.  The Medallion is done with a versamark pad and Whisper White emboss powder.  Hope you like and enjoy your Sunday :)  Thanks for stopping by, Steph

Magic Reindeer Food - a Hybrid project!

Hello again!  I'm on a roll!  These cute little things I'm making for Hannah's class.  I had never heard of reindeer food before til Hannah's 1st (or maybe 2nd) Christmas and my mom brought some over for her to sprinkle on the ground - I thought what a great idea!  So this year I decided to dress it up a little!  and what quicker way than with MDS?  So off to my PC I go to make up some cute little tags, in no time at all I had these made using a stamp from (Old Saint Nick - I think!) and the script at the top is Scriptina, I love this script for x-mas.  The rest is done in corsiva as it's a little easier to read.  I ran some Night of Navy through the Big Shot using what other than the Top Note die :)  added some ribbon and Voila!  Oh and the food is super easy to make, rolled oats and sugar!  I dyed some Epicure decorating sugar red and green and then also added some cinnamon sugar to make it smell Christmasy!  What do you think?  Hope you're having a great day and thanks again for stopping by!  Steph


Not sure if that's the right the spelling...but we've figured out the picture problem -YEAH!  Our memory card was much too big for the PC, so we found out through trial and error that our little 512MB card for little Hannah's camera works! Yeah!  So I'm now hoping to get LOTS of pics up for you in the next cpl of days :)  Today's post is from a card that a special someone made and gave to me (thanks Kathie!)  I met Kathie back in the spring at a crop for the London Skating team, and since then I have had the pleasure of Kathie coming to my crops and classes.  Kathie is also a demo and makes some amazing cards!  This little gem is one of them!  So I completely copied Kathie's card and then added some skin tone to Santa with the Blush Blossom marker, and then some Dazzling Details to Santa's hat, coat and the snow. The belt is black grossgrain ribbon, and a POP TAB - can you believe it?  Who thought of that?  Well I wish I could tell you, but I do know that Kathie saw the card first on Split Coast Stampers, so whoever you are...thanks for a super cool idea!  Brads of course are Basic Black for Santa's buttons.  How adorable don't you think?  Well off I go, have a sick kiddie at home and some homeade chicken soup on the stove, yum!  Thanks for all your patience and for continuing to stop by, and thanks Kathie for the awesome card :)  Steph

Christmas Card MDS style!

Hello all!  Well it's December 11th and I still don't have a fix for getting my pics uploaded onto my 'new' computer - grrr!  So tonight I decided I better get a post up so I created a card using MDS, since for now that's the only pics I can get on this thing!  Hubby returns tmw so then at least I can use his laptop.  OK, enough grumbling!  I must say I am really into the blue and silver this year for Christmas.  I've always been a fan, but find this year I'm really drawn to it.  This card is really simple, just a few stamps, added text for the greeting and some satin ribbon.  The picture of course is from hubby's studio.  Let me tell you, it was the session from hell, our kids are by far our worst customers...but he still managed to get a few good shots.  Hope you're having a great weekend, thanks for stopping by :)  Steph

Polar Bear Punch Card

Hello all!  First of all, a HUGE thank you to you all for continuing to stop by!  I'm feeling much better now, and starting to get caught up on things!  I had a WONDERFUL Friday last week :)  Thanks to some awesome women in Strathroy and some more awesome women at Club night here in Glencoe.  We had a great time making 'star albums' using the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin kit - Love that kit!  On to today's post...a card I made last year and most likely posted last year, but am re-posting for lack of pics being taken of my current projects!  Colours are Real Red, Marina Mist, and Whisper White.  This is not my original design and can't remember where I saw it on the net, so my apologies to the original creator!  Punches used are: Decoration (bulb) punch for the head, Wide oval for the hat, legs and arms, 1/2 " circle for the ears, 3/4" for the eyes, large oval for the nose and paws.  Hope you enjoy tonight's card, I'm a bachelorette for the weekend so I hope to have lots of cards posted for you!  THanks so much for stopping by, have a great night :) Steph
