Card Buffet Beauty for Saturday!

DSCN6096

 Here's one of the beauties you'll be able to choose from at the card buffet on Saturday!!!

DATE: Saturday, Dec 13

TIME: 9am - 1pm

COST:  $18

You get to choose from 16 different cards.  We'll have THANK YOU cards perfect for your Christmas presents, gift card holders and a variety of other cards and you'll GET A CARD BOX this month if you'd like to give them as a gift!!!  Call or email to let me know you're coming.

I found this card online and had to give it a try. I used Slate Gray for my ink and card layers.  I just tore some typing weight paper and sponged on the sky and layers of snow.  Don't you just love the Serene Silhouettes stamp set - it's so versatile.  I stamped the birds/branch in Slate Gray and then just colored over the birds with a Real Red marker.

DSCN6097

  After several diffent mediums, I found that acrylic white paint splattered on the front worked the best.

Tis the Season - for HUNTING!

 

DSCN5870

 

Here's a beautiful card made with the Beauty of the Season stamp set - this was one of my swap cards from Founder's Circle!  I have a ton to share with you - can't wait!  The Spotlight technique was used on this card - it's an easy way to take a stamp that you would usually have a lot to color in - and just color a little bit.

DSCN5871

 

TIS THE SEASON - If you've been wondering where I've been (the lack of blogging lately)...tis the season for my family to be hunting.  Blogging takes a lot of time and most of my spare time has been spent in the woods of Wisconsin...bear hunting for several weeks and then bow hunting.  It's such a great time of the year for my family - we are hunting crazy!  So I thought I'd share some of my fall hunting journey with you...

We started the season bear hunting with our FABULOUS group of BEAR friends in Northern Wisconsin.  We always have an amazing time with these characters - FUNNY doesn't begin to describe these guys!  Here's one of the many bears we encountered.


Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.27.43 AM

 

We also had the opportunity to go coon hunting with one of our BEAR hunting friends in central Wisconsin - great night...Hailey had a BLAST!!!

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.26.14 AM

 

Here's one of the beautiful sunsets I got to enjoy on a quiet night while bow hunting. 

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.25.25 AM

 

Me and my hunting maniac....Love her to death!!!!  She's been giving this bow hunting a valiant try for several years...and a couple weeks ago is the first time SHE EVER SAW A DEER WHILE BOW HUNTING!  Can you imagine?  That's what we call DETERMINATION!!!  Not only did she see a doe on that first night...but she got up in the dark and went out the next morning and saw TWO BUCKS!!!!  Now she has the BUG!!!! 

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.28.28 AM

 Here's the hubby, helping Hailey get set up for the afternoon/evening!

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.28.56 AM

 Steve (the hubby) is a hunting maniac.  He goes to Nebraska every year bow hunting for deer and then an every other year trip to Colorado bow hunting for elk.  This year in Nebraska they had a GREAT time.  Here's one of the bucks that Uncle Lynn got (far right) with my brother Jeff and hubby's brother Scott.

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.30.35 AM

 This is a killing machine...Hailey's bow ready to go!

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 8.28.17 AM

 So now you know why you haven't heard much from me lately...and this next coming weekend is our opening gun hunting - CAN'T WAIT!!!  While I am sad that I'm not sharing as many stamping ideas with you this time of year...I am thrilled to be out in the woods with my family, doing what we love.

With a long winter ahead...here in Wisconsin...get in touch with me and book a fun night that you and your friends can have a blast with!!!

Here's a photo of 4 of the cards Penny and her friends had a giggling, laughing, fun time making:

And the Holiday Home stamp set is just adorable...not only does it make a great Christmas card, but you can make housewarming cards, fall cards....great for just about any occassion!!!

Fun Fold Bunny

  DSCN3022

 

DSCN3017

 

I have no idea what this fold technique is called - but when I received a valentine swap card using this fold - I just knew I had to give it a try!  All my TECHNIQUE TUESDAY stampers had fun making it too!!!

The Petite Petals stamp set (Occasions Mini) is the perfect little compliment with delicate and soft little flowers to stamp inside.

DSCN3018

 

White Cardstock base - cut at 10-7/8 x 5-1/2 and score at 3-5/8, 5-3/4, 7-1/4, & 8-3/4

Cut between the 5-3/4 and 8-3/4 score lines (shown below) at 4-1/2, 3-3/4, 3-1/4, 2-1/2, 2, & 1-1/4

The Stampin' Trimmer is the BOMB for this type of project - GET YOURSELF ONE!  You'll love it!!! 

DSCN3026

DSCN3029

 

DSCN3018

I used the following:

Oval Framelit - body

Extra Large Oval Punch -  head

Large Oval Punch - ears

Small Heart Punch - tail

Scallop Trim Border Punch - border

Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly Punches

Stamp Set:  Petite Petals & Petite Petal Punch (Occasions Mini) - greeting: Delightful Dozen

The Pink Piroutte back is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.
