Wandering Words Thanksgiving card

Happy Thanksgiving. 

 I love pumpkins for Thanksgiving. 
I couldn't resist making a Thanksgiving card using a Pumpkin. 

Using the flowing leaves from the Wandering Words stamp set and Stampin' Write markers I created a colorful stamped image.

Pumpkin Pie Recipe Card

With Thanksgiving coming I thought I would share my favorite Pumpkin Pie recipe. Don't forget to top your pie with cool whip.

A little punch art helps to dress up this page. I used the large and small oval punch

The secret to making this card is to sponge around the edges of each oval before putting it together.

Two Tags Bigz Die Christmas Tags

What a great way to add a finishing touch to your Christmas gift.

I plan to top a home made baked  gift with one of these Gingerbread looking tags. 

To create these beautiful shapes I used the Stampin' Up Two Tags Bigz Die and the Big Shot

Creamy Caramel card stock with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink sponged around the edge looks like gingerbread cookies. 
Finishing the edge with a squiggly line using the Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.

These adorable tags were part of a Christmas Tag Class held this month. 
I hold a variety of classes in my home.

Bright Blessings

Many of club members will find this adorable card in their order this month. 

To create this card I first wheeled out the Bright Blessing Jumbo wheel in Sahara Sand Classic Ink. Then I stamped leaves from the Falling Leaves stamp set in several colors covering up some of the words. 

Exposing the message I was trying to convey:

Blessings brighten when we count them. 

Finishing off the card with some Linen Thread and a Button from the Button Latte Designer Buttons. 

Of course we can't have a naked envelope so I stamped the same image on the back flap of a Very Vanilla envelope

Leaves are stamped in Old Olive, Dusty Durango and Rich Razzleberry. What beautiful fall colors.

Holiday Line Up Christmas Card

Christmas will be here before you know it. Have you started crafting your Christmas cards?

Here is a cute Christmas Card that we recently made in my Mini Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.

This card features the Holiday Line Up stamp set and Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper that is found on page 21 of the Holiday Mini Catalog .

LOvE using Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stampin’ Dimensionals are the easiest way to give your projects an instant 3-D look. 

Just stamp an image and then use a Stampin’ Dimensional to attach it to your project. They are also great for making greetings stand out and attaching 3-D objects such as tags and bows.
