Winter Cardinal

I used the Reverse Masking technique. Once the acetate window was cut for the reverse masking technique...the rest was simple. Some use paper for the window but I like to use acetate as it allows me to see through.
I used my cuttlebug and oval nestie to cut the oval window out . I cut the acetate to exactly match the cardstock so I would not have to try to find the center. I just matched the edges up.
*HINT: use painters blue tape to hold down your acetate. Painters tape does not rip the paper like regular tape or masking tape will.
I stamped the Winter Cardinal right over the acetate and only what was stamped in the exposed oval window went onto the cardstock. Before removing the acetate I used a sponged for the edges.
Very easy. No glitter or bling. Just a simple snowflake in the corner.
This card would be easy to mass produce.

Have a wonderful day!

Simple Christmas Card

I normally make over 100 Christmas cards so to get to that number quicker, I needed to make a few easy cards. My husband loves all the mice images so I know he will be choosing many of the mice cards to hand out to co-workers.
This card was easy. I stamped Kiss Me Mouse stamp Momento Black onto a cream cardstock and then mounted it onto a gold premade card.
Bow was made using my Bow Easy.

Thank you for stopping by!

Thanksgiving Turkey Cards

Has it really been that long since I last posted?
Between shoulder injury, surgery and company for several seems my blog has been quiet...but I am back to making cards.
I found a turkey stamp for a dollar and made a couple of cards I wanted to share with you.
The first card is the tri-shutter fold and the flowers (one the front and the bud) are dahlia folds. The wording was printed on my computer.

The second card is a tent fold card. Very easy. I enjoy making this card and will make more for my co-workers for Christmas to display on their desk through the holiday season!


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!!
