This card puts to use the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the coordinating Pennant Parade stamp set. The trees and sentiment (from the Heard from the Heart stamp set) were stamped with Wild Wasabi ink, while the scallop circle and card base are Garden Green card stock. I used dimensionals to make the trees pop from the page. I would love to show you how easy it is to create this card at a workshop; contact me to schedule yours today!
Note: I promise to do my best to remember the stamp set next time Ally, Lauren, Mom and Jennifer! Check out tomorrow's post to see what creation came out of forgetting the Pennant Parade stamps!

This card featuring the Dasher stamp, has a lot of hidden details. First, the bottom Soft Suede card stock is stamped with the Dot, Dot, Dot stamp and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get perfect alignment. The top Whisper White card stock is embossed with the Snow Burst Embossing folder. A pearl is added on top of the punched snowflake. The ribbon is the new Quilted Satin featured in the Holiday Mini catalog, and the "merry Christmas" is punched with an oval punch.
Would you like to send hand stamped Christmas cards this year, but don't have the time to make them? Contact me ASAP for availability and prices.

For this card, I wanted to see how my recently purchased snowflake punch worked. So I ran a piece of Real Red cardstock through the Big Shot with the Snowflake embossing folder, stamped the sentiment from the Sincere Salutations stamp set and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch. I added the punched snowflake and spritzed the entire card with some Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.

Are you ready for Christmas cards yet? I have been finding so many beautiful and inspirational Christmas cards that I couldn't wait any longer to get started. This cardinal was created using the Bird Builder Punch. There is a secret to getting his color just right....leave a comment if you want to learn it! The red glimmer paper adds just the right amount of sparkle. The cardinal is WV's state bird, and I would love to use this one for my personal Christmas cards this year, but I'm not sure I'm up to punching all of those birds!

As promised yesterday, here is another card featuring the aluminum foil embossing. This card is similar to the Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum birthday card, except I used different Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink, a different Four Frames stamp and the polka dot embossing folder.

Foil embossing with the Big Shot is one of my favorite techniques. I love how it is so easy to create the shiny embossed surface. For this card, I used aluminum foil and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The frame is created using the Four Frames stamp set and "happy birthday" is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. Watch tomorrow for yet another card using embossed aluminum foil!

I really like how this card turned out. I colored the center of a paper flower with a sponge dauber and So Saffron ink. I used dimensionals and a punched circle of Baja Breeze, along with a stamped and punched button image from the Button, Button stamp set. The shine comes from the Crystal Effects I added to the top. The 'happy birthday' is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and the polka dot frame is from the Four Frames stamp set.

(Here's a shout-out to all my Alpha Gam sisters with the Red, Buff and Green! I can't look at these colors without thinking of you!)
P.S. I was inspired by another card I saw, but can't find the original to give credit to the creator!

this blog about a Mama and Me journal, I knew I wanted to do this with my own daughter. The idea is that we write each other letters back and forth in a notebook, each of us leaving the notebook on the bed or pillow of the other. The blog provided the "mama and me" download, but I decided to take it a step further and also use our Flirtatious Designer Series Paper and Melon Mambo card stock to decorate the notebook even more. I was very pleased with the outcome, and was excited to see my daughter's reaction. Her grin was priceless. :)

The last two weekends we have been busy with craft shows. I forgot to take pictures at the Forest Festival, but I did remember at Autumn Glory. Our crafts included tile magnets, stamped coasters, covered notebooks, pebble magnets, ornaments, and wooden crafts. This was also a great weekend with my in-laws, whom I dearly love. It was a good show and lots of fun.

Jan Wakeland, an amazing SU! demonstrator and Founder's Circle member. I was so honored to be a part of the special day, even if it was freezing cold! We were inspired by Jan's talk, and by the numerous samples and swaps shared by fellow demonstrators. Here is the card I swapped. It was created using a two-step stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog, Gently Falling. This stamp set is great for using coordinating colors, such as Certainly Celery and Old Olive, Riding Hood Red and Cherry Cobbler, and So Saffron and More Mustard. Want to learn how to use it? Contact me to schedule your workshop today!

One more posting from the fabulous day with my upline, Beth Ann Wilson. This one features the Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die featured in the Holiday Mini catalog. The top, toe and heel of the stocking were embossed using the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. And that box on the back? It was made using the Simply Scored scoring tool. Did you notice the cute little jingle bell on the Christmas tree? You can buy your own here.

silver glimmer paper is one of my favorite new products in the Holiday Mini catalog. I love the sparkle! This card, made with my upline, Beth Ann Wilson, also features the new stamp set Stitched Stockings and Stocking Builder punch. The sentiment is heat embossed, while the frame around the Whisper White piece was embossed using the Simply Scored scoring tool. My husband liked this card so much when I showed him that he thinks it should be our Christmas card this year!

Simply Scored scoring tool--do you have yours yet? There are so many fabulous projects to make with it!
We made this card during the stamping day with my upline Beth Ann Wilson. Not only was the day great, but she has supplied me with blog updates to last for a couple of weeks, while I get used to the busy back to school schedule! :) Thanks again, Beth Ann!

Christmas card we made in my Christmas in July Class, at Beth Ann's fun day, we stamped these flowers with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then, using sponge daubers, we applied the ink to the paper. The embossed flowers resisted the ink, creating the image shown.
