Among the Branches Christmas

As promised, here is another card using the Woodland embossing folder and the stamp set, Among the Branches.

This time I brayer Lost Lagoon on the folder side that has "Sizzix" on it.  I used Whisper White card stock.  I also used a Smoky Slate marker on the birch trees.  The birds are from White Christmas, stamped with Stazon Black ink and then color in with a Real Red marker.  I used a non-SU 2-1/4" circle punch to punch out the Silver Glimmer paper with.

I did make another Christmas card using Pool Party ink, so I'll share that one soon too!

Thanks,  Mary

Among the Branches-Autumn

Today I'm going to continue with the Woodland Embossing folder.  This time it is for Autumn.  I really like how it turned out.

I used my brayer to apply Crumb Cake ink to the embossing folder side that has the name "Sizzix" on it.  Then I added my leaves with Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Elegant Eggplant.  I used Hello Honey to stamp the sentiment with and made a small banner to cover the part that says "and tasty dishes".  The little leaves are from the Holiday Home set-retired.  Card stock is Whisper White and Elegant Eggplant.  I used my 2" circle punch to punch out the sentiment and a 2-1/4" EK Success punch for the bottom circle.

Friday I will share a Christmas one with you.  Mary

Among the Branches-Halloween

Well we've had cool weather the past couple of days and I was inspired to make Halloween card!  Oh, it will be here before we know it too!  Cool enough here that I made Chili!!

I used my new Woodland Embossing Folder, if you get nothing else out of this new Holiday catalog, this would be the one thing you should get!  I have really enjoyed make some cards with it, one I forgot to take a picture of, boo.  There is also a stamp set that goes really well with it too called Among the Branches.  It has stamps for Christmas, Halloween and Thanksgiving in it that goes very well with the embossing folder.  Another bonus is, Stampin' Up! is selling it as a bundle, so you save 15% when you use the bundle code, #140872, $21.50.


Stamp set: Among the Branches
Ink: Black Memento and Tangelo Twist
Card stock: Soft Suede and Whisper White
Woodland Embossing folder
Ribbon: Pumpkin Pie-retired

If you have a lot of Halloween cards to mail out, this would be a quick, easy and no extra shipping required one to make.

Thanks for dropping in to see me!  Mary

Hearth and Home with Festive Fireplace

Happy Labor Day!  Today is what I guess you would call the last day of summer for the kids.  Last long week-end for awhile too.  Soon crisp, cool days and evenings will be here.

The card I want to share today is one that came into my e-mail inbox from Frances Martin, aka Frenchie.  She is so talented and shares so many great stamping ideas and projects.  When I saw her card I had to CASE it and give it a try.  I think it came out so cute too!  This one I will be sending to a customer who recently placed a online order with me.

I used the Hearth & Home Thinlit Die set, using both pieces for this scene.  Oh, did you know that if you cut the window pane pieces off the window you can use it as a fireplace?  I'm going to have to give that a try soon.


I got the images that are in the window from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Yes, you will have to fussy cut it out, but really it doesn't take that long to do.  I did add some Dazzling Diamonds to the star and the candles on the tree for some sparkle.  For the bough swag I used the image from Festive Fireplace and added a few Red Glimmer berries using a hand-held punch, I think 1/8".  The sentiment comes from White Christmas which is in the annual catalog.  The background is stamped with Hardwood.  To see a larger image, just click on the picture!

Stamp sets: Festive Fireplace, White Christmas and Hardwood
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke
Designer Series Paper: Home for Christmas
Marker: Early Espresso (color in the pinecones)
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke and Whisper White
Punch: Banner
Two-Way Glue Pen
Dazzling Diamonds

Lovely As A Tree

Well the Labor Day week-end will soon start.  We don't have any plans as of now, we usually just hang out at home, which is kind of nice too.  Although we might be able to sneak in a visit with the grand baby too!

I saw a card similar to this one in my in box a week or two ago.  Amy K. used the new stamp set, Wonderland to make her card, I don't have that one, but I knew I could get a similar look by using my favorite, Lovely As A Tree stamp set!  So that is what I did.  This card is a lot larger than the normal ones I make, it is a 5" x 7" card, which seems HUGE to me!  I wanted to make the area smaller on the card front so I flipped it over and used my Simply Score Board and stylus and made my embossed border,  starting a 1/4" from top, bottom and both sides.  I used Whisper White that was 4" x 5-1/4", stamped the trees on the front with Mossy Meadow and did some second and third generation images too.  I let it dry for a couple minutes before I started my sponging.  Then I tore the bottom off, maybe 1/2" or so.  I sponged Soft Sky in the middle and then Night of Navy around the outside edges.  I also added some Crumb Cake at the bottom.  I then wrapped some Linen Thread around it a couple times and tied a knot.  I also added some shimmer to the front to make it look slightly frosty.  To get a closer view, just click on the picture.  The sentient is from Blessings from Heaven-retired.


This card is going to my husband's cousins' wife, she was in a very bad car accident in June and she is still in rehab.   Poor thing was in ICU for almost a month after the accident.  So I've been sending her a card at the beginning of each month letting her know that we are praying for her and to let her know we are thinking of her.

Have a great day and hope to be back on Monday!  Mary

Month by Month Signs

Well summer is getting close to being over and soon the little goblins will coming around the neighborhood.  I love fall because of the cooler weather that comes with it!

My daughter ask last week if I would make her something to place by Wesley's monthly pictures to show how much he will grow.  Nothing fancy but just to show.  So I thought for awhile and thought I would just go with the same theme we used for her baby shower, elephants and white and yellow chevrons.

I still had some paper left over and decided to make a banner that would not be too small or too big either and I really like how it came out too!


I used my Top Note die (retired) and traced the banner onto the back of the paper so I could hand cut it out, very easy.  Then I dug into the craft closet and got out my old Sizziz alphabet dies called Playground!  The elephant is from Zoo Babies and I stamped it in Smoky Slate.  The card stock is Smoky Slate also and I use SU silver glimmer paper!  I like how well it turned out too!  All I need to do is add ribbon for a hanger, if the daughter wants one.

Well off to make some more cards!  Mary
