A Christmas Cardinal

Cardinal 2Cardinals are one of nature’s gifts both for the holidays and all year around.  The cardinal pictured on this card comes from the Beauty of the Season Stamp Set.  The branch, berries, and cardinal are on one stamp which simplifies the stamping process.  We used a Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler color scheme.  Yum – the words crumb cake and cherry cobbler in one sentence surely make me hungry – especially since I haven’t had any cake in over a year!!!  The oval on the cherry cs was die cut with the ovals framelits.  The layer was then run thru the Big Shot with the new Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This is a beautiful, curvy embossing folder.  The cardinal/branch image was stamped in Memento black ink on Very Vanilla cs that had previously been misted with my “home brew” glittery spray.  The branch image was colored with Crumb Cake and Old Olive Blendabilities.  Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities were used to tint the cardinal, berries and 9 rhinestones.  After the card was assembled, the rhinestones and an off-white bow were added.  Two wonderful messages are available with this set that can be used inside the card and/or on the envelope. 

This is the second of four cards we will be making at the November Stamp Camp.  The next post showing “Bearing Gifts” will be out shortly.  I am really running behind this month.  However, I will be ready for you crafters on November 6th, 7th, and 8th at our November Stamp Camp.

As a reminder, the Gentle Peace Photopolymer Stamp Set 139523 that came out last

iPad-2014.10.20-10.25.17.000month, is still available.  Cost is $15.95.  This is a beautiful set and would look wonderful stamped on vellum and colored with Blendabilities on the back side of the Vellum.  I expect my set to arrive this week and will have it out for you to view at stamp camp. 

I will also have the Stamp-A-Stack samples out for you to view as well as on upcoming blogs.  You can choose to do 3 or 4 each of the 5 stamp set samples.  Cost will be $30 for 15 cards (you choose to make 3 each) and $38 for 20 cards (you choose to make 4 each).  This cost includes everything except snail adhesive.  If you choose to have snail adhesive included with the set, the cost is an extra $4 which would then be $34/$42.  I tried to keep the cards less costly, but with layering and embellishments, the cost adds up.  Snail adhesive will be available for purchase at the normal $2/roll.  I make nothing selling the snail at this price – it is my cost.  I will have a sheet available for sign-ups, or you can notify me by E-mail if you will be attending.

Check back shortly for the next Blog – “Bearing Gifts.”  Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
