Bethlehem Star

I was playing with the Bethlehem edgelits dies again!  This time I used some Wood textures designer series paper behind the buildings as the background.  This time I used Tranquil Tide as my card base color and added a sentiment from Star of Light to the inside with Tranquil Tide ink.

I have to say, this is one edgelits set you will want to have the Big Shot Die brush for...

More Stocking Tags

Recently I put together a lot of these fun Christmas stocking tags using all different types of Christmas designer series paper and embellishments.  These are a couple samples using the Quilted Christmas paper and some mini ornaments and Stitched felt embellishments.

I just cut a big pile of the pieces and started putting them together in an assembly went faster than you might think!

Rose Wonder Sympathy

I am still working on sharing the projects I made during a recent retreat - fortunately I was able to complete quite a few different things!  This is another of the sympathy cards I put together, this time using the Rose Wonder stamp set and different layers of stamping.

First, I stamped Old Olive ink on Old Olive card stock and then on the top layer I used Crumb Cake ink for the flower and Early Espresso for the sentiments.  I added a strip of burlap ribbon to break things up a little bit.

November Paper Pumpkin Alternative Day 2

Today' projects using the leftover Paper Pumpkin kit pieces are some cards that along with the tags, leaves, stamps and bakers twine uses the Woodgrain embossing folder and several layers of card stock.

I added some Merry Music specialty paper behind a few layers as well as adding a faceted gem as an accent on the sentiment layer.

November Paper Pumpkin

Aren't these little stockings adorable?  That was our fun surprise in the Paper Pumpkin kit in November!  I plan to use them for some gift card holders and maybe add some treats inside as well.  

There were quite a few leftover pieces after all the stockings were decorated so I will have some alternative ideas for you in the next few days.
 Don't forget you can get these fun surprises in the mail every month too!  Or ask for one as a Christmas gift.  Just go here to get started!

Here is Stampin' Up!'s fun video that will show you all the kit includes.

Just for You

I love the designs in the Foil Frenzy specialty paper package and decided to use some in the background on this card.  In addition, I thought I would add some embossing with the Perfect polka dots folder on another piece of card stock behind the stamped images.

The Stampin' Blends once again came out to color in the pen images and my sentiment is from the Watercolor Wings stamp set.
