More Christmas....

I can't get enough of the new single stamp, Dasher. How adorable is this? I love the image!! Dasher is stamped in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, as is the sentiment which comes from Fundamental Phrases. You can never go wrong with the wide grosgrain ribbon, so I had to use some of it. The Final Press embossing folder is one of my favorites and goes quite well with the image of the deer don't you think?

Christmas Card Stamp Camp Coming Up...

This Saturday I am holding a Christmas Card Stamp a Stack at my home. If you are in the Flint, Michigan area and wanted to join us, please let me know. This is not a card we will be doing at the class, but it is fitting with the Christmas theme for the stamp camp. This card was one that I recently submitted for a swap and I was unable to share with you until the cards were swapped out. This one uses the new Serene Snowflakes set in the Holiday Mini catalog. I was not planning on using brown and red for a snowflake card, but I did want to use the new designer paper in the mini so it just took off from there. Do you like the Build-a-Brad used in the center? I just don't pull those out often enough! In addition to using Serene Snowflakes this card uses the new Teeny Tiny Wishes - a MUST have set! I have 3 other cards to share over the next few days so be sure to check back!

A Bit More Fall for Ya...

I LOVED the way this card turned out. Simple as can be but just as cute as can be (what till you see the Christmas one I did just like it.) I want the ladies at my stamp camp to get to use the Square Scallop die to make a card base and this was just as fun as can be to make. I used the Final Press embossing folder as well - this embossing folder is by far my favorite. It adds so much elegance to a card. I also broke out my jumbo eyelets since I haven't used those in awhile. I love setting those things with the Crop-a-dile! I've got an idea swirling around in my head for this little card and hopefully I'll work it out soon and share with you!

Stamp Camp Coming Up!

I have a stamp camp scheduled for this Saturday from 10-2 and anyone who is in the Flint, Michigan area is welcome to attend. (Just let me know soon so I can check on space availability and be sure to have enough projects cut.)
This is one of the cards we will be making. The burning bushes in my front yard are starting to change color and that always gets me excited for my favorite season - fall! When I saw the set Falling Leaves in the new catalog, it really didn't scream at me, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it. Now that I own it, I can't stop using it! I love the circle image and used it on this card to make a cut out in the bottom corner. The inside of the card looks like this:
After I finished it I thought I should have added some leaves down the left hand side. I really love the Razzleberry and Suede card stock together and thought it still looked "fall-ish" but with are non-traditional fall colors.
I'll share another project we'll be making at my stamp camp tomorrow. Stay tuned!
