First I am sorry about the picture. My camera is on its last little toe, I think....Here is the first of my Christmas cards. The cup is a CASE from a card swap, but I thought this turned out cute.  I used Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Deck the Halls DSP, Chantilly trim with Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. The Tiny Tags 'merry' are stamped with C.C. and A.A. on Very Vanilla paper and then used the Tiny tag punch.  Four the Holidays is the Christmas stamped in Early Esspresso.  Finial Press was the embossing folder I used on the cup.  The cup itself is just a trace.  If interested I can email it to you.

I have used this "hydrangea" on a scrap page and needed to see what I could do with it on a card.  Here is my "Thank You" card using Garden Green and a page from the neutral DSP pack.  The thank you stamp is from the "Because I Care" hostess set.  The punches used Round Scallop, Butterfly, Punch trio, Scallop Oval,  Med Oval and the Ribbon punch.  The 'center' of the butterfly is 1/8 taffeta ribbon in black.  I also added some Moonlight Smooch to some of the centers of the flowers.  

Fall Holidays.....

This Thankful card uses Chocolate Chip for the base Garden Green for the added layer and Very Vanilla for the leaf base and the insert on the inside.  Ink for the leaves were Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie. Along with Pumpkin Pie 3/8 taffeta ribbon and the scallop border punch.  The two stamp sets used were "Thankful for...." and "Paisley Prints"

Fall Holidays.....

Here are two of my Thanksgiving cards.  One Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze and Old Olive and the other Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive.  The leaves are a Big Shot die from Misc scraps with pumpkin pie 3/8 taffeta ribbon. The other is the "med" oval punch, and pieces of the bird punch, with Old Olive 1/8 taffeta ribbon.  The pumpkin one also used smooch spray for added effect.   

Fall Holidays.....

Here is a perfect little gift for all your spooky monster this Halloween.  Yes it does have candy space.  Cajun Craze paper for the carton, Wicked Cool DSP for the bats and of course more of the Wicked Cool stamp set.  I have to admit the spider is from the dollar store comes in a pack of 50.  The library clip keeps all the goodies inside.

Fall Holidays.....

More of the SU Wicked Cool set. And I love, love love this ghost using the owl punch.  That is also a new product for SU Black waffle paper.  Moonlight smooch as the eyes for the bats and in the ghost.  That is Peach Parfait DSP and Pumpkin Pie for the card base.  I did put another ghost on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by.

Fall Holidays.....

Been working on Fall Holiday stuff. See what you think......

 Top Note die, Bat punch, Owl punch, and Oval punch on this one.....OH and I used the web and saying from Wicked Cool.
 Again, Top Note die, Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch and the leaves and pumpkin stem are from the the Bird punch. I think these might be my favorites so far.......
 I used leaves from my yard the background stamp is from Thoughts and Prayers set. The Large ribbon is 1 1/4 striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Chocolate Chip.  The buttons are from the Designer Buttons in Subtles.
The pumpkin here is from our new Ribbon punch just 11 inch paper used here and put together with a Large Brad.  The leaves on top are from the Bird punch.

Thanks again for stopping by!!
This little card was for a friends workshop.  She is such a girlie girl I wanted to pull out the stops for her.

I used Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose and yes Always Artichoke SU paper.  Since I LOVE my new Big Shot you know I had to use it somehow...Elegant Bouquet is the embossing folder.  White organza ribbon, Old Olive taffeta ribbon and jewels also by Stampin' Up!.  The phrase is from the Word Play set, saying "laugh-ter by definition is healthy". There is also "friends" from the Tiny Tags set on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

I have a great family friend who's birthday is coming up.  She loves thank you cards. I thought she might like a variation of these.....

I used my Thankful for... set and the Thoughts and Prayers set.  One card is Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake the other is Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake.  I colored some of the leaves using SU markers to add the RR or PP to the tree and used Chocolate Chip marker for the main trunk and limbs.   Hemp twine is the knot. 
Loved this set, and knew that I wanted to find at least one way to use it.  I used Garden Green, So Saffron paper and So Saffron, Stazon Black and Versamark ink.  Gold embossing power for the gears.  That is a small black brad holding the face on. Lastly, I used the clear window sheets for the clock face.

Thanks for checking it out!
