I have two similar cards to share with you today and given that I am still harvesting crops right now and running low on things to share, that is probably not the best idea on my part! Oh well, they are just variations on each other so I thought it was best to share them at the same time!
I have used the Cheerful Christmas stamp set and All is Calm specialty designer series paper and stamped both images with Bermuda Bay ink.
The background on the second card is also stamped with Metallic Silver ink and another image from the same stamp set. I thought the basic rhinestones would be a nice touch as well.

Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, Whisper White card stock
When you don't have a lot of time to create, this stamp set works well since it has a large image and lots of things going on! Of course, you could very easily use markers and make the images all different colors as well if you have the time and patience :)
I used Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and added some Real Red card stock that was embossed with the Stylish Stripes folder behind it.
Dots and more dots...I used a sponge dauber and some Baked Brown Sugar ink on the background and added some Flowerpot designer series paper to it before adding the flower, punched circle and sentiment to this card.
The circle is punched from the Under the Tree specialty designer series paper in the Holiday catalog.
I was playing around with some clothespins and washi tape one day and this is what I ended up with. Each one has a small magnet on the back so it can be used on the fridge or magnet board to hold something up.
I added a little flower from the itty bitty accents punches and a basic rhinestone in the middle for a little decoration as well. A cute and simple gift! You could use designer series paper instead of washi tape if you prefer as well.
I shared the first day of school pictures with you awhile ago because the signs I had the kids hold were made with My Digital Studio, but now I will share a layout using the pictures and also done with My Digital Studio.
I used the Back to School collection and there are two designer pages all ready to throw pictures into and add your journaling. I made some very small changes, but essentially these are what Stampin' Up! has put together for us to make EASY pages.
All the elements of the pages are also in the collection as stamps, designer paper or embellishments as well so you can do your own thing if you choose.
The Letterpress Winter stamp set in the Holiday catalog caught my eye right away because of the image that frames a sentiment for the most part I think. Of course, that image isn't even on this card I am sharing today!
I decided to stamp the large snowflake image on the card base of Crumb Cake and then punched a 2" circle in the Lost Lagoon layer that went over the top.
The tag was created with the angled tag topper punch and corner punch.

Although the Need for Speed stamp set is retired, I had some stamped images of a few in my scrap pile and I thought I would practice with the Blendabilities on them. They turned out pretty well, but more practice is definitely in order.
I used the Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler collections. The background is Gorgeous Grunge images and the sentiment comes from Boys will be Boys.
On each of the windows on the cars, I used the lightest of the Coastal Cabana blendabilities markers.
Boys will be Boys, Need for Speed, Gorgeous Grunge
This saying always reminds me of my daughter so I love to use it! The card is another simple one using the circle images and saying from Ray of Sunshine, some washi tape and circle punches.
This summer was a HUGE milestone for my little girl, she finally learned to ride her bike after lots of falls, tears and scrapes. I know that is a big deal for any child, but she has some right side weakness and balance issues due to a stroke she had when she was a baby so it was all the more wonderful to finally conquer it.
