A Christmas Tree Case

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  I'm getting ready to head to VEGAS for our Onstage event!  Hope to see some of you there!  I'm definitely looking forward to some warmer temperatures!  I'm in full on holiday mode and I can't believe I'm going to get to see the Occasions Catalog!  It all goes so fast!

Speaking of the Holiday Catalog, I HAD to case this card!  It's so simple and I so love it!

I love the Mint Macaron with all of the bolder colors and the accents of gold!  And I always love plaid and polka dots!  You can find the full supply list in my FB group.  I will say I miss the old supply list I used to have available here but I hope to have something like that around one day.  It's just going to take some time.  SU made some adjustments and I adjusted my budget :-)  So hang tight and check out the group in the meantime!

Happy stamping!

Gingham and Apples

Hi stampers!  Happy Wednesday!  I've switched gears back to a fall card today even though it's still freezing :-)

It took me a long time to get the Come To Gather DSP but I finally did and I'm so glad!  I just love this peacock gingham.  I also love the apples from Harvest Hellos so I used some Sponge Daubers to make a couple.  All you need to do for these is start with the lightest color and then add the darker one.  Circular motions work the best to blend well.

I just love all of these colors together!  You can find the full supply list in my FB group!

Country Christmas

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm switching gears to a Christmas card today, specifically with snowflakes, because it went from 70+ to 20 some here the last two days.  And it snowed yesterday, in Oklahoma!  It wasn't a lot but there were flurries!

Anyway, I thought this cute Christmas card would be good to share.  I really love this one.  I love the combo of Poppy Parade and Coastal Cabana.  I also love the little touch of gingham with the snowflakes!  It looks a bit country, and I'm not mad about it!

I stamped my background and then spritzed it a bit.  I let it dry mostly before I flicked some ink with my marker so some of it bled a little bit.  I also covered my punched out snowflakes with our Shimmery Crystal Effects which added a fun touch.  A little bit of silver thread finished it off.  The silver is the perfect finishing accent and I tend to not use silver too much and I really should!

You can find the full supply list in my FB group if you need it!

Thankful Pumpkin

Hi stampers!  Look at me, posting on a Monday :-)  This card is for you, all of my friends and readers who are here when I decide to blog and when I need you :-)

I finally ordered the Come To Gather DSP and I'm so glad I did.  I love the colors and I love the way the rustic wood pattern pairs with the gingham!  I also love the addition of Cajun Craze here, too!  My sentiment is from the To Every Season Stamp set and I think it pairs nicely as well!

Make sure to check out the supplies in my FB group if you have any questions!

Fab Friday 176

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Sorry I've been MIA!  It's been a crazy few weeks.  Ian got sick, we went to Illinois, came home for three days and then few to Disneyland and San Diego (Jon had a work event).  We came home just before Halloween and the time change and I just haven't caught up with my life yet :-)  I'm kind of always behind though, ha!

Anyway, I'm hoping to get back into the groove and Fab Friday is helping me out today, forcing me to stamp and share!

It's kind of a fall combo I think.  My apple has blushing bride in it, although you can't see as much of it as I'd like.

I have to laugh and tell you a bit of a funny story!  I went to make this card early Thursday morning (thinking look at me go of course)  because Jon had a medical appointment later in the day that would take most of my time (he's fine).  I stamped an "apple" and used my daubers to color it in and just wasn't happy with it.  I kept looking at it and could NOT figure it out.  It finally dawned on me.... :-)

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along!  If you're looking for the supply list, make sure you follow me in my FB group as that's where those live now!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 175

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for a new challenge at Fab Friday!  Check it out!

And here's my card!

I stamped my background on Shimmery White in Crumb Cake and then spritzed it lightly.  After it was dry I used my marker to flick a little ink as well.    For my candles, I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects and it's really pretty in real life.  You can see it a little better here.

Make sure to check out what the team did and play along with us!

You can find all the supplies on my FB group!

Fancy Friday - Annual Holiday Mixer

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday (or maybe Thursday night depending on when you're reading this)!  It's time to hop with the Fancy Friday team and I actually got my act together this month to do it!  If you're new to the hop, we are a group of current and past Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team Members who like to share our fancy creations with you!

I love this month's theme, Annual Holiday Mixer!  How fun!!!!  The challenge was to combine items from the Holiday Catalog with Items from the Annual Catalog to make a holiday project!  We tend to forget about the Annual Catalog sometimes since the Holiday Catalog is so fabulous but they really go great together!

For my project, I combined the Dashing Deer Stamp Set and Detailed Deer Thinlit Dies with the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper!  I think they look like they were made to go together!

To get a little fancy, I decided to use both the positive and negative portions of my die cuts.  I think we often forget about the negative space but it makes for cute cards!  I also added as much gold as I possibly could because what's fancier than gold and lots of it???  I also couldn't pass up making my deer into Rudolph with some rhinestones!

For this card, I used the Ornate Frames Dies which are actually in a Halloween suite, to make my tag.  Use those dies all winter long!

This card uses the very thin frame left over from the main panel from my first card.  It framed my deer perfectly!  Gold embossing ups the fancy factor again!

I really had fun being reminded to use holiday items from the Annual Catalog and I hope you will to!

Now it's time to go check out what my fancy friend, Teneale!  You're going to love what she made!

Happy stamping!
