Christmas Classics

I really like the way this card turned out. Not the traditional Christmas colors.

Stamps: Christmas Classics and Heard From The Heart
Ink: Basic Black and Craft Black
Paper: Baja Breeze and Whisper White
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Silver Cord, Baja Breeze Double Striped Ribbon, Dimensionals, Scoring Tool

I wasn't sure how much I would use this snowflake die for the Big Shot. I wish they had one a little smaller as the sizzlets are too small for this card. I love the color combo and I do really like the card. It looks so much better in real life. Very easy to put together. Great for a card class.

Ink: Versamark, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, DSP Backing

Candy Bar Holder

The first one of these I made was for our Halloween Stamp Camp. They are a really cute and quick way to dress up a candy bar. I was working on projects for my club this evening and decided to make one of these. They are so versatile. Just change up the designer series paper, colors, stamp and you have something for any occasion. We are also making a birthday card that was designed by Ashley. So thankful for her fabulous creations. It saved me hours in prep work this evening.

Deer Friends

I made this set months ago. I really love the box and card set. This was the must have hostess set for me when the new catalog came out. Debating if I will have time to do this project as a class. I left the holdiay sayings off the card where if doing this for a class I would have a phrase station and have my customers choose the phrase they would like.

Stamps: Deer Friends, Season of Joy
Ink: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Holiday Treasures DSP
Accessories: Old Olive & Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Notecards, Dimensionals, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch

Holiday Lineup

This is another one of those must have sets for me when the new catalog came out. I think all the characters are so fun. This card was inspired by cardinspired but wanted to change the size to be regular card size. And even though you are seeing Dazzling Diamonds on this card they are not suppose to be there. When I added adhesive to the back the Dazzling Diamonds from a previous project stuck to the cardstock. I didn't notice it until I downloaded the pictures. I'll brush them off when I get home.
Stamps: Holiday Lineup, Best Yet, Dotted Lines Wheel
Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper Whitem Chocolate Chip and Holiday Treasures DSP.
Ink: Black Stazon Black and SU Markers - Real Red, Old Olive, Blush Blossom, Creamy Caramel, Summer Sun, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Alpine Ribbon Originals, Dimensionals, Curvy Label Punch

Season of Joy

I was so happy when I saw this stamp set in the catalog this year. This was a card idea taken from the Mini Catalog and it used the Scandanavian Season set. Loved the card but wasn't planning to get the set. Changed it out for this set and I still really like the card.
