Here is a quick Thank You I whipped up the other day using the set Cottage Garden that I received as a gift, and I thought how perfect to use it for the thank you card I would send. I also took the chance to use a color combination that I wouldn't normally try as a challenge to myself. I think it turned out cute, I hope you like it. I hope you are all getting in the Holiday Spirit!

Here is a simple yet elegant Dasher card that I used for my very first Stamp-a-Stack the other day. My gals really loved this card. And I learned a few things to make my next event go more smoothly. But we ALL had fund! In this card I used Very Vanilla and Early Espresso CS, and the Deck the Halls DSP. Embellished the card with Simple Pearls and Early Espresso Satin Ribbon. We sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink and used the Ticket Corner punch along with the Modern Label and Word Window Punch for the greeting. Hope you like the card!

Here is another simple Christmas card. I used the Season of Joy set. It's a little hard to see from this picture, but there are pearl accents on the snowflake and the three poinsettias on the top. Also, the tree was cut out and mounted with a dimensional, and the snowflake was punched out with a 1/2" circle punch and mounted with a dimensional too. Thanks for checking out my blog!

OK, I thought I would share a couple more things with you tonight to make up for my lack of posting.....Here is a card made with the French Foliage set out of the Holiday mini catalog. I just love the Victoria crochet trim, and these antique brads!
Hello, again! I know it's been a while, I will try to keep posting. So, here is a simple card I put together using the Because I Care, level one hostess set. I used Basic Pearls and Old Olive satin ribbon to dress up the simple design. ENJOY!

Well, sorry for the break in cards recently. I have been busy trying to sew two fairy costumes for my girls for Halloween, which is becoming quite the project, and the downside is it has invaded my stamping space! But, I made this simple and cute little Christmas card a few weeks back and thought I better share something again before you guys loose interest, so her it is. Hope you enjoy!

So, I created this card in Honor of Breast Cancer awareness month for the "Hope You Can Cling To" Campaign on Splitcoast Stampers. The Challenge was to Bring in the Brown.
I used the Upsy Daisy set (#111710) on a Chocolate Chip base. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch (#118402) and the Scallop Edge Border Punch (#119882) along with Play Date DSP (#117168), 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon (#117289), 5/8" Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon (#119958), Hemp Twine (#100982) and an Antique Brad (#117273) to accessorize my card. I also used a sponge and some stitching on the ribbon. ENJOY!

Well, I got busy yesterday and didn't get a post up, so today you get to see two cards! The first is featuring the Autumn Days set (Wood Mount-#115452 or Clear Mount #112000). I used Kraft CS for the base of the card, and Cajun Craze for the matte. For the background I sponged with Daffodil Delight first, then I punched out a circle out of a sticky note and placed it for the sun. After I placed the circle I continued to sponge with Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink for the sunset effect. Then I stamped the wheat with Daffodil Delight Ink, the other grass with Kraft ink, and the berry branches with Cajun Craze. The bottom edge of the paper was sponged with Early Espresso along with the Pheasant image. Use the ticket corner punch for the corners, and embellish with gold brads. For the sentiment I used the Sincere Salutations set again, and inked it with Early Espresso mounted on Early Espresso CS and placed on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here is another Birthday card using Pear Pizzazz for the card base and pieces from Greenhouse Gala DSP (#117167) for the background. I simply stamped the bird image on Whisper White card stock in Baja Breeze, and the berry image in Chocolate Chip. I added some sponging around the edges with Chocolate Chip and then mounted it on a piece of Chocolate Chip CS. I used stampin' dimensional's to put this piece on the card. I used a piece of 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz (#119265) to accessorize and hide the seam in the DSP. The greeting is from the Sincere Salutations (#115068) set again and is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink.

Here is another Christmas card using the Season of Joy (#110384) stamp set. This card is on a Cherry Cobbler base with a piece of the Deck the Halls DSP (#120810) our of the Holiday Mini catalog. The image is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock and I sponged the edges a bit with the Cherry Cobbler Ink. I accessorized the card with Victoria 5/8" crochet trim (#118481) and a piece of 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Early Espresso (#119961), cut in half lengthwise with a few strands unraveled off the edge. And to finish the card I placed an Antique Brad (#117273) on the "o" in Joy. Hope you enjoy!

OK, so this is a pretty simple card that I threw together a couple weeks ago. I used the Season of Joy stamp set on page 33 of the IBC, I love this set, it is simple and elegant. My paper choices were Kraft for the base, a piece of Deck the Halls DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog on page 18 for the background, and early espresso to mat the tree image which I stamped in always artichoke. I sponged the edges of the DSP and Kraft to get a more rustic look and embellished the card with hemp twine and a rhinestone brad. Enjoy!
