This year I really got a along of use out of the "Snowy" stamp.  He's just so cute!  I made one for each of the members in our group but  no two are the same.

Thanks for coming by today1

This card was supposed to be on my blog yesterday but I forgot to schedule it.  I used two gold foil die cuts.  The "Snowflake Ribbon" is from Poppy Stamps.  "Peace" is from Penny Black.   I had a narrow strip of the gold foil left over from a previous project and added it to the top edge of the card.  I that finished off the front just right.

Another card using Penny Black's "Snowy" stamp.  The oval design is from Memory Box.  It was added over a piece which was embossed with the Stampin' Up! embossing folder.

Thank you for coming by today!  Only 6 more days until Christmas!

PENNY BLACK - "Snowy" #1

I have had the "Snowy" stamp for a long time but when Penny Black came out with a die to match I had to have it.  I saw a card very similar to this on Pinterest and decided that I had to make it.  The "Merry Christmas" is also from Penny Black.

Thank you for stopping by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Hometown Greetings #2

I found this dp in my stash and decided to use it behind the SU die cut.  For this card, I left the die cut piece all white and didn't emboss the bottom portion of the design.  The "O Holy Night" is from Penny Black.  I added double sided adhesive paper to the front and back of the white card stock.  After die cutting the sentiment, I carefully removed the adhesive from the top of the die cut so that I could add glitter to it.  Then I carefully removed the adhesive from the back side and attached it to the card. 

Thank you for coming by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Hometown Greetings Die

After cutting the design, I colored the trees with a Copic marker.  I traced the church and house on gold foil card stock, cut them out and then placed the pieces behind the white buildings.  I used the Stampin' Up! embossing folder to only emboss the lower part of the die cut piece and added it to the SU Night of Navy card base.  The finishing touch was stamping the star with VersaMark and heat embossing with gold powder.

Thank you for stopping by!

Our granddaughter, Ashlyn, is celebrating her 18th birthday today.  Our grandchildren have grown up way too fast!  This is the card I made for her.  Since her birthday is at a "wintery" time of year, I thought the snowflake and mittens seemed very appropriate.  

The snowflake is a die cut from Poppy Stamps.  The mittens were and border were stamped with Stampin' Up! stamps and ink.  

Thank you for stopping by today!

Last year my friend, Lynette,  found a cute Recollections stamp set at a great price and made some cards with it.  I found it on line at Michael's and ordered it at that great sale price.  This is the card my friends and I made for the Care Center.......53 in all.  It was a simple card but hopefully that little snowman will bring some joy to the residents.

By the way, the card that I posted yesterday was the one that we made for the Independent Living Center where my mother lives.  We always send 44 cards there for them to use.

Yesterday I did some Christmas shopping and hope to finish up today.  Fortunately our daughters help do the shopping for the gifts that we give to our grandchildren so I don't have many to buy.

Thank you for coming by today.

PENNY BLACK - "adornment" stamp

The wreath was stamped with SU Garden Green ink.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  Very simple but it makes a very pretty card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will come back again next week for more holiday cards.

CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS by Sue Wilson - Illuminated Angel

A few days ago I posted a card done with this die using navy and gold.  When I cut that piece I had also cut the design from the SU Marina Mist card stock.  This piece sat on my table for several days not knowing how to finish it.  It was cut down to 4" x 5 1/4" and added to the white card base.

Now what?  I didn't have any vertical stamps that worked well.  The sentiment was cut from a Penny Black die. Since the words were all separate once they were cut, I used them and angled them on the card to fill the space a little better.  The card is OK, but I really like the one I made earlier and posted.

Thanks for coming by today!

SU - Hometown Greetings/Hearts Come Home (Part 2)

I really cannot take credit for this one because I did CASE it from Pinterest.  I used the Birch Trees embossing folder instead of the one they had used but otherwise it's pretty much the same.

Thanks for coming by!

STAMPIN' UP! - Hometown Greetings/Hearts Come Home

After Christmas last year I decided I really "needed" this stamp and die set  I am so glad that I gave into the temptation on this one.  It is such a great set and so fun to use!  I die cut the deer and trees before I stamped might have been better to stamp them first but they turned out OK.  The "glittery snow" die cut is from the Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles set. 

Come back tomorrow for another card that I just love from this set.

I had some note cards and envelopes from Hero Arts that had not been used in years.  The light blue cards have a white fleck to them that made me think a little of snow.  I added the Memory Box snow border die and the die cut Peace.  Very simple card but I like it.

Thanks for coming by........much more to come.


I am going through some stamps and deciding which ones I can let go.  This was one of them; but before listing it on eBay I decided t...
