Forever Evergreen

Hello there stampers!  Tonight I am sharing a card that I created using the Forever Evergreen stamp set.  Now if you've seen the Holiday Catalog you may have overlooked this stamp set.  The reason I say that is that there aren't any samples (other than the Forever Evergreen Project Kit) showcasing this product.  I did buy the Forever Evergreen Project Kit however I have yet to assemble it.  (That's actually an upcoming class for those of you in my area.)
I do however have a fabulous card to share that shows just how beautiful this stamp set is. 

 I love these tiny little ornaments.  On my card- I embossed each ornament in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and then fussy cut them out.  After they were cut out- I used an Aqua Painter and some re-inkers to color them in.  The ornaments were then staggered on a background of Soft Sky watercolor wash.  
Did you notice that there's only a TINY hint of traditional Christmas colors on my card?  I love to use non-traditional colors to create gorgeous Christmas cards!

Paisleys & Posies

Hello stamping friends!  My card tonight was created using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  I loved this set when I first saw it but for some reason I never ordered it.  Well it finally made it into one of my recent orders and I'm so glad it did!  I am in LOVE!  This set is absolutely gorgeous and oh so versatile!

I've been working on a few other designs from this set and will be sharing them soon!

Happy Halloween!

Good evening stampers!  Tonight I have an adorable project to share with you.  It features the Halloween Night DSP and the 3" x 6" cellophane bags.  These little bags make the perfect gift for co-workers or party favors!  They are small in size yet they still hold a good amount of candy.  

To hold the treat bag closed- I made a bunch of witch's hats from mini clothespins and card stock.  Aren't they adorable?  Keep in mind that these little treats don't have to hold just candy.  They will also fit money, gift cards, or other trinkets!

Here's some of the ones that I created.  There were LOTS!!!

Monday Montage #80

Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop. I'm so happy you joined us!  Be sure to visit all of the stops to see what other fabulous projects we have created to share with you.

Tonight's project is a clean and simple Christmas card.  Even though it's a very simple card to create- it's packed FULL of fun details!

I started out with a Very Vanilla card base and added a layer of This Christmas Specialty DSP.  Using the Large Letters Framelits I cut out a J and a Y.  I could have spelled JOY the usual way using nothing but letters but where's the fun in that?  The Stars Framelits Dies make the perfect O.  Since I wanted to add a little dimension to my card, the stars were scored to make them 3 dimensional and the Very Vanilla top layer was embossed using the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  To finish off my design, a Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine bow and two Mini Pinecones were added.

Hello December 2016

Hello there stampers!  Did you know that Project Life Card Collections and accessory kits can be used for more than just scrapbooking?  Tonight I'm featuring the Hello December 2016 Card Collection ( of the cards from the collection).  I love how beautiful the Kraft, Emerald Envy, and Real Red look together.  Such a fun and festive card!

You'll notice that there's not very much stamping required when using the Project Life Card Collections.  That's ok though!  The card collections offer many images as well as sentiments that can be combined or used individually!

Frosted Medallions

Hello there!  Tonight I have a gorgeous card to share that I created for the Inking Everything Team Facebook challenge.  Each week we are issued a challenge.  The challenge is either a sketch or a color combination.  For this week- we were to create a card using the following color combination:

This is what I came up with!  I just love these colors together.  So beautiful!  
I chose to use the Frosted Medallions stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  I love everything about this set.  The gorgeous medallions, the beautiful sentiments, the different fonts.  I love it all!   Pair it with the color combination from above and you've got yourself one fabulous looking card!

It's really hard to see in the picture but there is a ton of wonky sewing on this card!
