Wonder of Christmas

From October’s Jingle Jump, this sweet angel: Embossed in gold on Shimmery White paper and water colored just a bit, she sings a song of joy.  A strip of Gold Foil accents the embossed Soft Sky background.  It’s a fast card … Continue reading

Copper pines

My stamping partner Elizabeth Hamilton designed this dramatic card for last month’s Inkspiration Saturday.  I think it’s perfect for an any-occasion guy card.  There’s no stamping on it, only die cutting. The positive die cuts of the Artichoke and Pear … Continue reading

Paisley Thanks

Do you send Thanksgiving cards?  If so, this is the week to buckle down so they arrive in plenty of time for the recipients to enjoy them.  I like displaying the ones we receive on our buffet so that visitors can … Continue reading

Pillow gifts

I don’t remember the first Stampin’ Up! event I attended that involved pillow gifts to and from my roommate.  Thanks to demonstrator Facebook groups, I’m pretty sure I was prepared with my token of friendship and received hers with delight … Continue reading

Grateful Acorn

Uh-oh.  I seem to remember seeing a card that inspired this September camp card, but … hmmm.  Nowhere to be found.  I apologize to the stamper whose work took me in this direction.  Step forward and take credit, please! I never … Continue reading

Christmas Joy

This was one of my favorite cards from last month’s Jingle Jump.  It’s so bold and almost reminds me of the graphics on a can of pop.  Do you get that advertising vibe, too? The Merry Medley background stamp makes a great chalkboard look; … Continue reading

You’re in my autumn thoughts

This September camp card has been a favorite — it’s easy and pretty fast and gorgeous.  And I have Sarah Klass to thank for that! Here’s a design element worth using:  the monochromatic embossed panel lightly adhered to the card base. … Continue reading
