Serene Snowflakes

I created this card for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. I really love stamping snowflakes in non-traditional colors. The challenge was to use Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler and Real Red.

I used the stamp set Serene Snowflakes. I also used the Tasteful Trim die, and added some Basic Pearls for texture. I really love Stampin' Up!'s Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, and added a little Very Vanilla taffeta (retired). I used this taffeta before I realized it was retired, in place of that you could use either Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta, Very Vanilla 1/4" Grosgrain, Very Vanilla Designer Velvet Ribbon, Very Vanilla 5/8 Satin Ribbon, or 5/8" Victoria Crochet Trim.

The patterned paper is from the Holly Berry Boquet Specialty Designer Series Paper. What's fun about this DSP is that it has some patterns that are GLITTERED!!! So pretty!

I hope you enjoyed my card, as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Babies, Babies, Babies!

Since my best friend and I are both pregnant with our first children, I thought I'd take the Create with Connie & Mary challenge, and create a baby card with it!

I love the color combo! I don't know yet what I am having, and neither does my friend, but I would love to give this card to someone. It's just so cute!!

The stamp sets used are the In Stitches wheelFriendly Phrases, and Fox & Friends. I love how the stitching adds such a fun element to this baby card!!

Thanks for coming by!

FTL160 Stitched Stockings

I am really loving the items I decided to purchase from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Such as, Stitched Stockings! It's such a super cute stamp set! Very simple, but makes some really fun cards and gift tags!

I am also enjoying the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper. The colors in the paper are so fun to play with!
The card base is Blushing Bride, I layered with Early Espresso. For some interest on the white layer that the stockings are on, I stamped with the cute Simple Snowflake Stamp. I also used a length of Old Olive 5/8" Satin Ribbon. I love the texture that the satin ribbon gives a card. It's very versatile! The sentiment is from the stamp set, Four the Holidays, and that is layered on Marina Mist cardstock.

Thank you for coming by and taking a look at my latest card!


Comfort & Joy

I love this set from the Holiday Mini, called Comfort & Joy. I love Christmas carols, and this set automatically puts Christmas songs in my head!

I created this card for MOJO209 sketch challenge, and for PP66 theme challenge. The card base is River Rock, layered with Bravo Burgundy and Wild Wasabi. I used the Snowflake Punch, the Basic Pearls Jewel Accents, and Dazzling Details.

I enjoyed making this card, I hope you enjoyed looking at it!

Thanks for stopping by!

French Foliage

These colors are so fun. I got them from the Create with Connie & Mary blog.

I love how you can use these colors for fall, or they'd be a fun alternative for Christmas!

I used the French Foliage set for this card.

The card base is Soft Suede, the green layer is Pear Pizzazz, I used the gorgeous Spice Cake Designer Series Paper, and the Spice Cake Designer Buttons. I tied a bit of Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon in the button. I don't like using naked buttons!

I hope you enjoyed this card. It was fun to try out these colors!

See you soon!

PPA113 Beautiful Season

I created this card for PPA113. I decided I LOVE this card so much, it is going to be my 2011 Christmas card!

I really love the simplicity of the clear embossed bird image, and the turned sentiment. The jingle bell is a fun addition.

This stamp set is called Beautiful Season. The bird image was embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, using the Heat Tool

I used the Cherry Cobbler 3/8 Quilted Satin Ribbon from the Holiday Mini. I tied the Mini Jingle Bell to the ribbon with Linen Thread. I like the added strip of Early Espresso cardstock, just to add a bit of contrast to the Crumb Cake Cardstock

I embossed the Cherry Cobbler cardstock with the new Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, using my Big Shot. After it was embossed, I used a Sponge Dauber, and dabbed on a bit of Frost White Shimmer Paint, for some added glitz and sparkle. I really love that stuff, it's fun to use instead of an ink pad on stamped images!

I hope you enjoyed this card. I loved making it!
