I love this card Just Beclause

So I've moved on from most things fall and onto Christmas, crafting wise anyway. I was inspired to make this card by Heather from Stamping with Heather (check her out, she has way cute stuff). I am having a hard time with this little guy even though I LOVE him, he is just too cute! When I saw Heather's card I was in love. I love the vintage look and colors, they fit Santa very well. I love her coloring but I must say I'm watercolored challenged so I did my best, hoping to get better one day. I also kept my layout rather simple. The star belongs to the Patterned Pines hostess set from the mini catalog. Colors are creamy caramel (it's so yummy), soft suede and bravo burgundy (I'm really starting to like this color). I stamped santa in stazon on watercolor paper. Hope you like him!

Now go check out Heather's blog:

Fall Birthday

Hi stampers! Just wanted to share a card with you that I made last night. Today is my mom's birthday so I made a card for her last night. I copied the idea from the October issue of Stampin' Success. It's a little out of the box for me as far as layout...most of my stuff is clean and this is a bit different with circles, but it really cuaght my eye in the magazine. I loved the colors and I think it's great for fall and I think my mom will like the colors too. The card base is textured card stock which I love, it adds that little extra something. The leaf images are stamped and the cut out, which really didn't take too long. is the card:

Stampin' Supplies:
Falling leaves stamp set
Rich razzleberry textured CS, more mustard, old olive, whisper white and chocolate chip CS
Classic inks of the same colors
Circle punches, scallop border punch
chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, stampin' dimensionals

Thanks for looking and happy birthday mom!

Oh...My Digital Studio

So wow, that's all I have to! I got my copy of My Digital Studio a few weeks ago and it's AMAZING. MDS is Stampin' Up's! new digital crafting tool. It's so much fun to use and pretty easy to use and comes with all of SU!'s exclusive colors and stamp sets! You can easily coordinate your printed project with elements you already have to make a "hybrid" project (meaning you use the digital page and then embellish it with traditional accents).

I don't scrap much because it's time consuming but this is so dang fast!!! I have done a ton of projects in mere minutes! You can print through SU! or any other source such as your home printer or Walgreen's or Sam's type sources. If you do print through SU! you know that your colors will be true, which cannot be guaranteed through other printing sources.

I was totally skeptical when I ordered it...I fear change, but I am IN LOVE! There are already new downloads to purchase on the SU! site as well and they will continue to add content...not that you need much extra, it already comes pretty loaded. There are many "stamp sets", papers, and embellishments to get you started. You can find something for any holiday or occasion.

I will try to post a few projects and also a flyer for my upcoming Holiday Extravaganza class (this blog and I do not get along when it comes to uploading things sometimes). Sign up today. It will be on November 14th at 1pm at my home. Reservations are due by November 7th. Cost is $15.00. Contact me today to regsiter or with any questions!

For now, here are a few cards that I've done recently with a Christmas theme, enjoy!

Lovely as a tree and winter post on sage shadow

A direct CASE from the mini catalog using Cute and Cuddly (so cute) and window sheets, they are cool!

This uses the new petals a plenty embossing folder, it's so elegant!
