Joy To The World Christmas Window Card Made On The Explore

Hi, Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady. Thank you Pam for allowing me to share today on your blog. Hope you are feeling a little better today!

Isn't this a beautiful little card. I have a light on the side of it so you can see that it is a window card, complete with a window. I love window cards and was thrilled when I figure out how to do them on my Explore... even more thrilled that it was easier than on the CCR or Gypsy! Originally I was making this card for a card party and cut out 12! Well after getting them all cut out I decided that I wanted to keep them for myself as I make my own cards and I love religious cards so this one is perfect.

Now wasn't that a lot easier than you thought? I used a lot of glitter pager from My Minds Eye. And I want to remind you that this particular card that I am showing has every blunder cut that happened. I had to get some new mats out then all went well.

This is a close up of the front and as you can see it does have a window in the card.

Close up of the inside. I used a stamp and ink from close to my heat. It is beautiful.

Here is another close up of the card I wish the picture looked as good as the card, as it is stunning and just shimmers as you hold it in the light.

Thank you for joining me today. I enjoyed sharing my card with you and hope you liked it too. Thanks for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement. Your comments always inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week.

Friendship Card Made WithThe Expression

Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady, thank you Pam for inviting me here today.
Now isn't this a fun card? I saw Melody Lane's video on her card that was a pop-up with the car on the inside. Well I don't have that cart yet so I used this little car. I followed Melody's instructions for doing a photo and look here we are, isn't it cute?

I sent this little card to my Cousin Roxanne and hubby Rob telling them we were looking forward to our little trip together. They loved the card to say the least.

Now wasn't that easy and you got to see my Explorer sing! Love it. I used all kinds of scraps and ended up with a great little card to mail out.

Thank you for joining me today, I so enjoy spending a little time with you. And thank you for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me.

Fall is here

This is Pam. Today I am a guest designer on She's a Sassylady
Thank you Sheila for  having me as part of your lovely creative team.
Fall is here and I felt like celebrating. 
Fall brings to mind pumpkins and wheat stalks! 
So decided to make a simple card including these elements.
I have used an image from Saturated Canary called Cinderella.
Dies used are oval from spellbinder and the wheat die is from impression obsession.
Pattern papers are from DCWV

I wish I could have done a better job at coloring and spend more time on it but well.. Anyways the image was colored with copics.

Hope you liked my simple card.
Until next time.
Welcome Fall. Hope you enjoy this  colorful season!

These Boots Are Made For Walking!

Having so much fun with the girls. We are busy making cards and videos and can't wait to share them all with you!

Now isn't this an easy card? I had so much fun picking out the paper on this one. I used scrap paper and you would never know it! I used my Silhouette Portrait for most of the cards for the party as it was much easier for small hands to use 8 1/2x11 paper.

I sure hope you liked today's project and you too take just a couple of minutes to put a card together for a friend! Thanks for joining me today and for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Have a blessed day!

Door to my heart

Today I am a guest designer on She's a Sassylady
Thank you Sheila.
My project for today is a simple card which I made for our wedding anniversary.

The sentiment and the stamp is from heartfelt creations. The lacy heart die is also spellbinder/heartfelt creations. I cut  the stamped heart to open the door as a window card to reveal the quote which is on the inside of the card . The embossing folder is Anna Griffin folder. Border ribbon was a roll I had from India. Pink satin ribbon and roses for more embellishment.
It was sure fun making the card. A bit of work but I liked the result and so did hubby. Hope you liked it too.
Thank you all for reading the post and I appreciate all the lovely comments you all leave.

Dinosaur Window Card

Welcome to the Bugs Bytes. Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady sharing this adorable little card that I shared at our card party on Sunday. I used Create A Critter and the Art Philosophy carts. I designed the card on Cricut's CCR.

Now wasn't that easy to put together?  And the card is darling and you know my grandson is going to love it!

Here is the card completed, don't you just lot the window with the circles. This is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Like all my cards I made them 2 up so there would be no wasted space on my paper and I can use the other card for an additional birthday card in the future.

I wanted to share how neat the inside of this card is.... no rough edges and it looks so cute.

Now remember I shared this card as a card party card so I cut 10 of these little cards and the girls loved them. As a matter of fact two of the girls needed girl cards so they added pink bows and a diamond necklace.

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me.

Christmas challenge card at DS4J

Here is a very quick card I made for the Christmas challenge at DS4J - http://digistamps4joy-sa.blogspot.com/2014/02/monthly-christmas-challenge-february.html
I didn't do justice to the card due to some unforeseen circumstances.
Colored using zig stella markers. They look good face to face and glitter but are kind of awful to take photo of.

I have used Washi tape, stickers and embossing folder to decorate.
