Fab Friday 177

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday!  It's a sketch this week!

This week has been stupid busy (and continues to be) so I went super simple, which is great with this sketch!  You can't go wrong, I don't think!

See, super simple but I think it's cute!  I guess I kind of phoned it in but this just goes to show, you always have time to play if you keep it simple!  Now go play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Christmas Rose

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm back from Vegas and OnStage and back to the real world, I think! And I'm headache free!  I had a headache most of my time in Vegas, blah!  That's part of the reason I didn't share a lot from the event and my room had terrible cell service and internet!  I'm going to try to play catch up this week!  Also catching up with laundry but that's a whole other thing ;-)

Anyway, I'm sharing a card I FINALLY made with the Christmastime is Here Suite!  It's so gorgeous and the only thing I stamped here is the sentiment!  Talk about easy cards!  That gorgeous image is from the DSP and cut out with the dies!  I adhered it to my card panel and then carefully trimmed the edge off so that it fit onto the base.

Impress your friends and family with pretty cards and virtually no work!

Additionally, get ready for a sale tomorrow! For three days, get select merchandise for a discount during our Online Extravaganza!  Check back tomorrow for more details!

Off to do more laundry!

Happy stamping!

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!

Happy stamping!

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!

Happy stamping!

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!

Happy stamping!

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!
