Not just for Christmas...

We used a stamp in the recent Christmas card classes that everyone really loved.
Here is the card we made in the jade & lill pond greens...


The card above has glitter on the trees (hard to see in the photo) to look like fallen snow.

The best thing about this stamp is that it doesnt need to be used just for Christmas.
I changed up the colors to navy & baby blue to make a birthday card...


This time I left off the glitter in case the persons birthday wasn't in the winter.

Batter Up!


My favorite little guy is having his 2nd birthday.  The party was baseball themed, so I made him a special card for his big day.

I love My Favorite Things dies so I used:

By The Letters alphabet dies
By The Numbers dies
and Traditional Tag Stax (tag dies that layer each other).

New Christmas dies from My Favorite Things!

My Favorite Things has come out with some great stamps and dies this month... love them all!



I grabbed a few images from the MFT blog because the girls over there do fabulous work and I havent had a chance to even open mine yet!


I've been waiting for a nice wreath die for a long time, this one is perfect if you layer two to give it some dimension.


Here is the poinsettia up close.






This card shows the gift card pocket maker (love!)  and the stamp set that coordinates.


Anyone who has a problem with bows should check out the Dainty Bow dies, makes it look like you really ties the paper bows!

Last call for Fall!

Thanksgiving is fastly approaching but there is still plenty of time to make fall themed cards.


I love autumn leaves, and this Penny Black clear stamp set is a great "2 step" style.   There are two different stamps that make up one image so you can use multiple colors to create one image.

The rest of the cards...

Christmas card classes start tonight and I almost forgot to upload the rest of the cards we are making...


You cant tell from the picture, but the "Merry" card has glossy glaze on the light bulbs to make them look shiny.



A nice and simple kraft colored embossed card, just add a few stamps and a sparkly gem and your done.


Another one you cant see in the photo, but we used diamond and red Stickles for the reindeer nose and santa hat.


This one uses all MFT dies to make the front of the card.
