Today's card is one we made a the Scrapbook day Saturday. I used the Lovely as a Tree set with Always Artichoke for the branches, and then Cherry Cobble and Old Olive for the Delightful Decorations. The greeting is stamped with Cherry Cobbler and then I used my Old Olive marker to colour in a bit of the decoration. The stamp set I used is called Word Play and I really love it! I used dimensionals to pop out the decorations once I punched them out. Hope you like and thanks for stopping by!

Tonight's card is from the set Home for Christmas. I used Crumb Cake for the base and the DSP is left over from last year. The stamp is done with black Staz-on and them coloured using Stamp'n'Write markers. Add a little glitter to the trees and steps (hard to see but its there!) and it looks just like fresh snow! Hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Good evening everyone...boy it's chilled off! Well I have to say it was like Christmas here this afternoon. My favourite man in brown (UPS) arrived with my new Greenhouse Gala Tote bag AND new paper cutter! Thank you mom for the early Christmas gift, my hands will thank you this week when I cut my 100 cards for Sunday's class! Today's card uses one of my favourite sets, Snow Swirled. Paper is Baja Breeze DSP from a couple years back, but you can use just about anything Baja Breeze. I embossed the tree using Versamark and Silver embossing powder. Remember when embossing you must use a heat gun, a hair dryer won't get hot enough, and also remember to use Emboss powder, there are many types of glitter out there and some are so fine you might mistake it for emboss powder and wonder why it's not working. The ribbon is one of my favourites as it's so versatile, Whisper White organza. Hope you like and as always if you have any questions, send me a line! Take care and thanks for stopping by! Steph

Happy Saturday everyone! Looks like we're in for a gorgeous day. Today I'll be at the Glencoe Train Station for our 2nd annual Christmas Extravaganza. I'll be there with some our my good friends and reps from Pampered Chef, Epicure, Mary Kay, Bekadee bags, and Digital Footprints Photography. If you can come join us for a free coffee we'd love to see you!
Today's post is my version of a card I saw online (and I wish I had saved the site cuz I can't remember who's it was!) I used the Wide Oval punch for the head, and the 1 3/8 Circle for the other head. Noses are the Large Oval punch and then I used the 1" Circle to round them off. Ears are the 3/4' Circle punch and then tuck them in behind, and the arm is the Large Oval again. Eyes and ears are a standard hole punch. The greeting is from a hostess set from a couple years back, and I punched it out with the Large oval and matted with the Scallop Oval. Colours are Baja Breeze and Whisper White. I chalked the parts of the bear with Going Gray chalk, and then added a little Baja ribbon to finish it off. The snowflakes were stamped with flakes from the Christmas Punch set (hostess set from last year, but now i have the Northern Hearts set, so I would use that if you don't have the Christmas Punch set. Ok, well that seems like a lot, but it took very little time..and oh so cute don't you think!!
