Winter Cardigan

I recently participated in a team swap where we each chose a stamp set from the new Holiday Catalogue then created 11 cards using that stamp set. I chose Project Life's Holiday Cheer set. To be honest, this stamp set was not my first choice for the swap but I love how my card turned out. It was a lot of work but well worth it in my opinion! What do you think?!

My piece of paper started out as a plain ol' piece of Whisper White! The colors used were Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Garden Green, and Melon Mambo. I used Crystal Effects to create the "buttons" and All is Calm Snowflake Embellishments as the "necklace" charm. Silver Baker's Twine was used as well (and required a lot of patience to thread through the snowflakes I might add)! In all I used 3 stamps from the Project Life Holiday Cheer set. All supplies including ink, paper, punches, etc. can be found in my online store.

Thanks for stopping by!

New Photopolyper Stamp Set

Stampin' Up! released a beautiful photopolymer stamp set this month called Gentle Peace. Some people were disappointed with the lack of religious stamp sets in the catalogues - this new set should help fill those in need! It would work wonderfully with the blendabilities to give a stained glass appearance!

There are 4 stamps in this set and can be yours for just $19.95 Canadian. Contact me today to place your order so you can get a start on those Christmas cards!

Have a wonderful week!

Back to Fall

I love the look of washi tape but really struggle to come up with ideas on how to use it on my cards and projects - and have it look nice! For some reason the stars were aligned and this card really clicked for me! Maybe my washi tape block has been abolished!
I used the For All Things Stamp Set and Color Me Autumn Washi Tape from the Holiday Catalogue. The Gold Basic Metal Button is also from the Holiday Catalogue. I stamped the leaf from the same stamp set in Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss and cut them out with my paper snips. The card came together quickly and I am pleased with how it turned out! 

Visit my online store so you can whip up a few of these fast and fun fall cards! =====>

Pine Gold Swap

When trying to come up with a card for my team shoebox swap last week I made a couple different designs. I ultimately decided on the card I showed you Friday - I was worried taking gold embossing powder to my upline's house for the swap might not make me a fan favorite! LOL Anyway, I still think the card is pretty and thought I would share. I really like the combination of sophistication and whimsy - the stately pine with the gold embossed ornament and then the whimsical gold baker's twine looped around the sentiment with another taste of gold in the star. What do you think?
I used my Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso markers to ink up the pine, branch, and cones. The sentiment was stamped on Kraft paper and popped up on dimensionals as was the gold embossed ornament. 

Which swap card do you like the best? I would love to hear your comments!

Happy Stampin'!

Team Shoebox Swap

Wednesday evening I got together with 5 other members of my team and we did a shoebox swap. It was lots of fun and was a great opportunity to chat, share and business tips and ideas...and cupcakes! We each designed a card and then took the supplies necessary to recreate it - we then - quite literally - swapped shoeboxes around the table until we had completed all 6 cards! It was tons of fun and something I hope we do again soon! Here is the card I designed:

 And the inside:
I used 2 stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue - Festival of Trees and Ornamental Pine. Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler were the paper and ink of choice.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by!
