Christmas Greetings!

Been trying to design some Christmas cards....how about you? My schedule has been so crazy lately that I thought I'd never get around to doing any more.

The following card is using Stampin' Up's new "Deck the Halls" Designer Series Paper. I absolutely LOVE the colors and patterns in it....Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake! Ever had colors and patterns 'sing' to you? This one does that for me! I'll be posting another Christmas card soon using more paper from this pack! So keep checking back for more ideas! :-)

I used "A Wish for Peace" stamp set....keeping it simple with Kraft Whisper White ink!

Delightful colors....its all a part of the adorable paper pack "Pawsitively Prints II" Designer Series paper. It's designed around the Build-a-Bear Line that Stampin' Up has....but I thought it would look cute used for just about anything! Thought this time a Birthday card was in order!

Hope you enjoy the card!

Thanksgiving Wishes

Have you figured out how you are going to prepare your turkey this Thanksgiving? Baked or Deep-Fried? Let me tell you....if you've never had a turkey deep-fried you are missing out!! It's incredible! Maybe this is the year?? :-)

Well, if you haven't thought about your turkey yet....maybe you've given your Thanksgiving cards some thought? :-) I enjoyed making one the other day and thought I'd share it with you! It's using the beautiful French Foliage stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog. Great set!! Of course the Autumn Spice Designer Series paper is perfect with this set!

Hope it brings the feeling of Fall your way!

Stampin' Up! Items used:
Autumn Spice Designer Series paper (Holiday Mini), Early Espresso, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Cajun Craze cardstock, 1 1/4" Early Espresso Striped Grosgrain ribbon, French Foliage and Seasonal Sentiments stamp set (Holiday Mini), Medium Oval punch (Holiday Mini), 3/4" Circle punch, Antique Brads and Hemp Twine.

Halloween Dress Up!

It was an enjoyable Halloween....Rachel dressed up as a Renaissance Girl and I half dressed as a witch due to having candy duty at the door this year! (I wasn't complaining.....chocolate and the warmth of the inside worked just fine for me! :-) Last year it was raining! Rachel and I were completely drenched by the time we got home!

Enjoy the pictures and the Digital Scrapbook page I did using "My Digital Studio."

Greetings, Earthling!

What a fun, adorable, versatile set to use for any age group!

This set is called "Greetings, Earthling" and it's available in wood mount only. I think you'll love all the shapes and sizes of the little aliens and will have a blast creating cards and tags with it! The balloons I added are from the "Crazy for Cupcakes" stamp set (also shown below). This set, too, is only available in wood mount.

I used Crystal Effects on the alien, after I colored him, to give him that wet, slimy look. :-) Just took some silver wire to create the 'strings' the balloons are being held by. Now, it's your turn to get creative! Would love to see what you create with your little aliens!

Hope you enjoyed!
