One Sheet Wonder, Masculine cards.

I made up some quick masculine cards yesterday by using a One Sheet Wonder method. By stamping the images from the Dapper Dad stamp set (discontinued), and then cutting the sheet in various ways,  I was able to make several cards from this one sheet (below). 
You can see the method HERE

I made this card for my friend at work who is leaving after 4 1/2 years. We will miss her very much.
I used a couple of products from the new Occassions Mini Catalogue. 
Cheerful Critters, Crazy About You, Flowerpot designer series paper, Blendabilites.
For the inside (below), I stamped the rabbit critter leaving the arms off and then also stamped this sentiment from the Just Sayin' stamp set.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year...

I started with a card base of Pool Party and Real Red. A piece of Whisper White card stock cut 1/4" smaller than the card base was ran through the Ampersand Embossing folder centred. I then stamped Merry Christmas from White Christmas and the Happy New Year from Good Greetings. I coloured in the Merry Christmas using my Cherry Cobbler and Costal Cabana set of Blendabilites. I also stamped the image from Kinda Eclectic coming in from the left.

Holiday Easel Card

I thought I would try an easel card. 
I used the Deco Labels die and the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and Wonderful Wreath Famelits dies fit nicely in together with this shape. 
A combination of Real Red, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake for paper and colours.

Wondrous Wreaths

I've had fun playing with my new holiday stamps from Stampin' Up!

For these cards I started with a Real Red card base, then stamped the Wondrous Wreaths along with the bow on Very Vanilla and die cut them out using the complementing dies. I then stamped The Hardwood Background stamp on in Slate Grey on a layer of Pool Party card stock.
For the card on the left, I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp and the "Joy" die from the Wonderful Wreaths Framelits Dies.  For the card on the right, I coloured a section of Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon with the light Cherry Cobbler blendabilites marker. I stamped the sentiment in Slate Grey and Real Red from the Endless Wishes stamp set and punched it out with the Word Window Punch.
