Lawn Fawn Sunday

Hi there and thanks for stopping by! 
It's Ceal here, hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend and ate plenty of turkey, Today I am sharing  some Lawn Fawn goodies with you.  Love this little owl and there is a coordinating die to go along with it. I used some Lawn Fawn paper  cut with the Die-namics Blueprint 15 and twine. I added a little Canvas Corp clothes pin to finish it off.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Here is another Christmas Cardinal card. For this card I used a large wood grain background stamp. I sponged for the ink around the cardinal to make it more rustic looking. My favorite part was using the blendabilities markers - just love working with them. I added a little glitter to make it look like snow. Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

O' Christmas Tree

Hello Ladies and a Happy Thansgiving to you and your families,

Here is another idea and a very easy one for those of you that haven't started your Christmas cards.  The card is an A2 the background is a red pearlized paper and the embossing folder is Couture Creations Fancy Christmas Tree with a white gossamer ribbon tied around the base.

As I promised last week, below is my recipe for a great Turkey Pot Pie.

1 Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheet

1/3 c butter or margarine
1/3 c chopped onion
1/3 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1/3 t Herbes de Provence
1/4 t pepper
1 c of chicken broth
1/2 c white wine
2/3 c milk
2 1/2 to 3 c shredded turkey or chicken
2 c of frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 egg & 1 t of water

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.  Thaw puff pastry out as directed on package.

Melt the butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat.  Add onion; cook 2 minutes or until tender.  Add the flour, salt, herbs de provence, pepper; stir until well blended about 2 minutes.  Gradually store in the wine, broth and milk, cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened.

Add turkey and mixed vegetables; mix well.  Remove from heat.  Spoon turkey mixture into an oven safe dish, cover with the puff pastry.  Beat egg with teaspoon of water and brush over the puff pastry, this will give it a nice golden brown top to the puff pastry.

Bake at 425 F for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

6 Servings

Happy Holidays from a 'Tartan Miss'

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - thank you Terri for having me.  My card today is probably one of my very favorite, probably because it uses one of the new Prima dolls, but also because I love this Authentique 'Believe' paper.

How cute is she dressed in her tartan outfit?  The hat is actually part of the set included with the Prima 'Dog Treats' stamp set, and the bag is from the Prima 'Boutique Set'.  What do you think of her 'fur' trimmed boots?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Distressed Christmas Tree

I am back with my final Christmas card for you.  I used the Couture Creations embossing folder again, I cut the tree out and did some distressing with Tim Holtz Distress ink, added some crystals, a star and Ribbon and of course paired it with some paper from Atuthentique.  Out of all the cards I made for Christmas I like this one best, my hubby says it is "not me" but I love it!

Christmas Card Lightbulb branch

Hello Ladies!

The boss was happy with last weeks post so I get to do this again.  Yahoo!  This weeks card is a little more intricate and certainly worth the time.  The white card is a 5 x 7 with green flocked or velvet paper and a strip of white, the die used is Memory Box's Lightbulb Branch #98941.  I fussy cut the lights using scraps of blue, red, green and yellow.  I then used Stickles Crystal over the lights to give it a little bling.  The Merry Christmas stamp is embossed in Wow's Platinum Sparkle, which by the way I love these embossing powders.  I hope this was inspirational to all of you that haven't started your Christmas cards or if your looking for that special card for a special someone.

Next week I'll be posting a Turkey Pot Pie recipe guaranteed to make your family smile and a great way to use up some of the left over turkey.  In the meantime, remember this quote "Not my circus, not my monkey's" it made me laugh and I hope you will too.

I'm off to the mountains ski season is upon us!

Christmas Cards from Scraps

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - as always Terri thanks for having me.  Today I have two cards made up from leftover scraps of paper.

I saw this card on Pinterest, and loved how simple it was.  Here is a link to the original card .

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the date and the holly leaves, and then used sequins for the berries.

For my second card I used strips of patterned paper to weave a colourful background for the heart die (from Memory Box).

Here is a close-up and a look at the sentiment inside.

I hope you liked my projects this week - see you next time.

Snowy Shaker

Happy Sunday!
It's Ceal here to share a shaker card with you. Shaker cards are easy to make and so fun!
To make my card I started with an A2 sized base and a mat cut 4 X 5 1/4. I used a Snowflake die from Sweet 'n Sassy to cut out my window for the shaker, next I cut a piece of acetate to cover the window and added some foam tape to the back. For the "snow" I used some sequins along with some Sampendous snow glitter. You can find all these supplies at A Scrap N Place and if not, terri will order them for you.

Tis The Season

This is Kim with another CAS Christmas card to share today. I embossed the white cardstock with Provo Craft's snowflake die. I then die cut the ornaments using the Penny Black ornament die. I accented the ornaments with Stampendous' red sticky dots and the glitter dots are done using a small hole punch and the silver glitter paper. I popped the ornaments onto the embossed cardstock using 3-D foam tap.

Fall card

Good Morning,
I hope that everyone is staying warm on this very cold Wednesday. I guess I am still in the Fall/Thanksgiving mood so here is my creation for the week. I tried using liquid pearls for some sparkle. The pumpkin was a stamped on white paper and than I used a die cut to punch it out - same with the leaves. It is a very simple card but very fun to make. Thank you for looking and I hope you have a warm safe day!

Easy Christmas Card

Hello Ladies!

Welcome to my very first blog and it has been quite an experience for me.  For those of you that haven't met me I am the newest member of The Scrap N Place, I found this little gem of a store in August with my mom, being from Wisconsin we don't have anything like this and we proceeded to spend and spend.  I brought in a several of my cards that I made and things haven taken off from there, I work at the store a couple of days a week, sell cards and will be teaching my first class for Scrap N Place on November 19th.

The card above is  simple and elegant, it is an A2 card the white has been pearlized with the Prima Color Bloom Pearl White, red flocked or velvet poinsettia paper and Merry Christmas was embossed with WOW Red Glitter EP.

I will have a new card for you every Wednesday for the next six weeks.  If you haven't been to the store recently I invite you to come in and introduce yourself and I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Let It Snow

Happy Sunday!
It's Ceal again to share anther card with you. Well we finally have snow in our forecast, so I thought it would be appropriate to share this quick and easy card using these cute stitched snowflakes from Lawn Fawn, teamed up with this gorgeous BoBunny design paper.  The greeting is from a Lawn Fawn set critters in the Arctic. You can find these and more at A Scrap N Place and like always if they are not in stock, terri will get them for you just ask.
On the centers of a couple of the snowflakes I added some bling, but not rhinestones, Sequins! Why sequins you ask? they are all the rage and they give your card bling and will not cost a dime extra to mail it.

Jingle All The Way

Hello Stampers! This is a quick CAS Christmas card to create. I used a Penny Black ornament die to cut out the ornament shape. I then added rhinestones to accent it. The cream cardstock is stitched using a zigzag stitch then I stamped the sentiment and added the strings to pull it all together.

Christmas Sleigh

Well I have put the dolls aside for this week and I am starting to think about my Christmas cards. I used a back ground wood stamp and cut it out to make the sleigh. The only Christmas stamp that I could find that would fit in the oval was the tree but there are so many other possibilities that you could try. Thanks for looking and have a great rest of your week.

Happy Holidays

Happy Saturday! Kim here with another quick Christmas card. I embossed the red cardstock and matted it onto a shimmery black cardstock.
I used the Christmas ornament dies from Penny Black to cut out the shapes. I then used gray paint for the base then went over it with stickles. The ornaments are adhered to the card using 3-D foam tape.
