Season of Friendship

Happy Tuesday! Sorry, once again I'm slow at getting here! If you are a farmer's wife you will understand when I say that sometimes your plans change unexpectedly. Yesterday was one of those days! I'm also getting ready for my two days of World Card Making Day events. Here is one of the cards that we will be making. It's made with the Season of Friendship set in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I really love this set! At first I was going to do a fall card but then got to thinking that I hadn't seen a lot of cards done with this set with the flowers so I came up with this. The colors are Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Basic Brown for the tree. I wanted to keep it simple as the attendees will be making 10 cards. I really like these colors and even though there are no brads, ribbon or other accessories I think it's kinda cute. More later. Thanks for stopping by!

Snow Swirled

I've been busy preparing for my Stamp Club and Class. Snow Swirled is on the Never Before Seen Promotion so I thought it only right that we make a card for the class with this set! I used Riding Hood Red which really "pops" when next to the Whisper White card stock. I wanted the card to shine and sparkle so embossed snowflakes with clear embossing powder along with the smaller red snowfakes. I'm not sure how well you will be able to see it in the photo but it gives it some nice texture too. I used Sterling Silver embossing powder for the tree and topped it off with the punched star and snowflake with silver brad in the center. I used my new oval punch on this card for the first time! I stamped the large snowflake in the set in red on the oval then embossed the greeting in silver and sponged around the edge to finish it off. It's a pretty simple card to make but it's kind of elegant too. Thanks for looking!

Say It With Scallops!

Sorry I've been away so long. Last Friday we decided to take off and go to Cheyenne to see some good friends for an extended weekend. We returned home on Monday night. We had a great time but it took me a while to catch up! I finally got a chance to sit down and do some stamping this afternoon. I decided to play with the Say It With Scallops set that we recieved at Convention.

I also used the new square scallop punch and scallop edge punch on both of these cards. I also used Branbury Designer Paper on both cards. This is a fun little set!

Colors for the upper card: Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette.

Colors for lower card: Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip. I also used some beads from the Green Dou. I attached the beads with some crystal effects. I cut the square scallop in half and used the halves across the top and used the singlo gel pen to make dots on the scallops.

Kiwi & Chocolate Silhouettes

Hi! Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend. We didn't do much but it was a nice break from the usual!
This is one of my latest creations made with another of my favorite sets, Pocket Silhouettes, from the new Catalog & Idea Book. I used Kiwi Kiss & Chocolate Chip card stock & ink. I also used the new Bella Rose DSP and Label Punch, Chocolate grosgrain ribbon and did some sponging and paper piercing. I really love how it turned out.
The Pocket Silhouettes set is one that is on the Never Before Seen Promotion so be sure and check that out.
Thanks for stopping by!
