Sweetheart Cards!

I was cleaning out some baskets in my craft room (much needed) and found these embossed background heart layers.  I think the embossing folder is a cuddlebug folder.  I use to do a lot with that several years ago.  I decided it was time to use some of the stuff in the basket and here is what I came up with.  I used Basic Black , Whisper White and Real Red cardstock.  The LOVE (in Basic Black) on the front of this card was cut out on the Silhouette Cameo. The Real Red heart was cut out with the heart from the Circle Card framelits 133480. I added a rhinestone to the corner of the heart.  On the inside an oval was cut from the Ovals Collection 129381 and a heart like on the front of the card was added to the bottom of the oval.  Cute and simple, huh!  On the next card the LOVE was cut out from a framelit that was in a supplement from SU...it is retired, but was just to cute not to use.  The
'u" was cut from a framelit from the Label Card framelit 133479 and I cut the "u" off of it and placed it in the center of the Real Red heart.  On the inside of the card is an oval with a red heart placed at the bottom.  The red heart of this card was punched from the Sweetheart punch on page 222 of the annual Stampin' Up catalog.  I just love the shape of it.  Hope you enjoy and let me which one you like the best.  It is always good to hear what others think of you creations.  Now I feel better knowing I cleaned out some of the STUFF that was sitting around in baskets.  I have some more to use and will share in a couple of days.


Happy Stamping!

Just Wanted to Share!

These two Valentine's I received several years ago and have no idea who made them.  I have never sent them out because I liked them and wanted to save them, silly huh!  I am sure the persons that sent them to me meant for me to use them.  The pink card with the flower on it I don't have any clue what was used.  I think you can figure it out if you want to make one. The one with truck is from Loads of Love a Stampin'Up set.  They used Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock.  Ink is Basic Black, Real Red and Brillant Blue marks. This stamp set is retired as well as the Brillant Blue marker. The hearts in the back of the truck  have Crystal Effects on them and popped on with dimensionals.  The red portion has little hearts stamped all over it with Real Red ink.  I just wanted to share some of my favorite things.  Hope you enjoy and don't forget to leave me a comment.  I love to hear from you.




 Happy Stamping,

Projects from Silhouette!!

I have been absent for  awhile from doing cards and other projects because of health issues.  I am feeling much better and will get back on schedule.  When I did feel like doing anything it was with vinyl.  So today I thought I would share some of the gift items that were made.  I hope you like.

 As you can see from the mix that I did, monogram cards for my oldest grandaughters classmates, gift tags, ornaments with Clemson paws, ornaments with for my youngest grandaughters class mates, and the gold charger plates with images from Silhouette store.  They were so much fun and easy to make and share with others.  I hope everyone enjoys looking at the fun projects and if you have any questions please email me.  I will reply.  Take care and have a Merry Christmas! Happy stamping and enjoying your craft goodies,  Johnnie Sexton

Another thank You!

We used this stamp set the other day in workshop and I had it sitting on my work space and a piece of white cardstock laying beside it and it started calling my name.....do something with me! And this is what I came up with.  I love this photopolymer stamp set!  I was going to use the biggest thank you in the stamp set but it was just to big for me.  A very simple and quick cards to make.  I laid out all the layers and stamped them at the same time with a few mishaps along the way.  Took all of 30 minutes to make 8 cards.  Notice on one of the cards I used some Real Red twine but didn't like the way it looked so did not do the others with it.  At first I thought the hearts made it look like Valentine's, but then I thought its okay cause we should have a heart all the time, not just at Christmas and Valentine's.  This is what I am giving the workshop group as a thank you for the orders placed this month.  You could even place some rhinestones randomly to perk it up a little. This would look good in any color...go play with your inks and stamps!
Supplies used all Stampin' Up:

Stamp set: Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set 136835
Cardstock:  Real Red 102482, Whisper White 100730 and on the inside I used Whisper White
Ink: Real Red 126949
Accessories:  Labels Collection framelit for inside of card in Whisper White, Snail Adhesive 104332.

As you can see not much in supplies was used but the cards are cute and simple.  As always, you can purchase these supplies from my online store located in the sidebar, click on catalog.

Cake Server and Pyrex Dish Clemson Style!

I have been working on several projects for my niece for her tailgating and camping ventures.  She gave me a cake server and told me to do what I wanted, so I did! Then I met a woman in Walmart that needed help with the size of a pyrex dish (she couldn't see the numbers).  She said she was looking for a certain size because a friend was going to glass etch the Clemson paw into the dish. Welllllll.....you know what that did to me! Yep! I had to go to Michael's and get some Armor Etch and a real sweet individual in Cheraw, SC shared an image with me.  Thanks Bethany...you are the bom! So, now I am enabled to do another craft.  I just love people who share ideas with others.  You are a special breed of people.  Not everyone is that generous.  Now on to the projects.  I decorated the cake server in orange and purple with the initial and then I etched the paw into the pyrex dish and then thought this needs more and put her last name on the side.  I think they turned out pretty cute for the first one's I did.  Yeah me!

Hope you enjoy my projects and this will give you inspiration to go play in your craft room today.  I bought my vinyl at Expressions Vinyl.  

Happy playing,

Festival of Trees and Glimmer!

This was such a sweet card to make.  This card was made in our workshop, too.  All Is Calm DSP was used as the top layer on Old Olive card stock.  Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White finished off the top layer.  A 2" circle of Glitter cardstock was cut and put on with dimensionals. Then the two trees from the Festival of Trees stamp set were stamped with Old Olive and Pear Pizzaz ink and punched out with coordinating punch.  The tree with the white circles were colored in with the Cherry Cobbler marker.  A Merry Little Wish.. sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler in and a flagged end was cut and placed under the tree in the front.  The first tree was glued down using snail and the second one is on dimensionals.  Rhinestones were used to give it some more bling.  The red bow is from some retired ribbon.  It is Cherry Cobbler with a white edging.  On the inside I placed a Whisper White circle and added a tree punched out in Pear Pizzaz.

Stamp Set: Festival of Trees Bundle 137640, this comes with tree punch
Paper: Glimmer paper 135314, Old Olive 100702, Cherry Cobbler 119685, Whisper White 100730
Ink: Old Olive 126953, Cherry Cobbler 126966, Pear Pizzaz 131180
ccessories:  Rhinestones 119246, snail adhesive 104322, dimensionals 104330, glue dots for bow 103683. This card was cased from Pinterest but some things were changed with the supplies I had.

Another Thank You

We made this card in our workshop and I cannot remember what the name of the DSP is and can't find a package to tell me where I got it.  Woe is me!  I think that tells me I have to much stuff!  But I do know what cardstock I used.  Very Vanilla, Old Olive (my all time favorite in the green family of colors), Cherry Cobbler.  Cherry Cobbler was used for sentiment. Sentiment is from Another Thanks photopolymer set.  Another of my favorite stamp sets.  On the inside I put a Very Vanilla insert. Quick and simple is the name of the game. Cherry Cobbler ribbon was used for the center of the card. Hope you will leave a comment and have a great weekend.  Stay warm!

A Million and One Thansk!

This is another of the Thank You's we are doing in workshop.  Early Expresso cardstock and Whisper White cardstock was used to make this cute card.  The DSP is from last year.  We are trying to use up some of the left papers that we liked so much.  The Oval framelit was used for the sentiment.  You can use any stamp set or saying and just use this like a card layout.  The inside is finished with a piece of Whisper White and DSP strip.

Happy Stamping!
