A favorite combo - Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive

You don't need Christmas stamps to make Christmas cards. It's all about the heart you put into it.

I love how much texture the embossing folder adds to this card. There's a 3/4" x 4" strip of Elegant Eggplant on the front, plus a 5/8" x 3-1/2" Whisper White piece for the greeting. Markers were used to ink up the birds on the branches image.
Sorry about the photos. My Ott light decided it'll only work when in the closed position, which isn't very helpful. I haven't had time to fuss with it because my home Big Shot broke too. I can understand that - the machine has cut and embossed thousands of pieces of card stock, not just for me, but for my customers, as well. I've had it at least 6 years. I'm going to see if my hubby can fix it (he did fix our dishwasher this week!). If not, it'll be recycled. For now, I've brought my studio Big Shot home.
I have a JoAnn's coupon, so I might just see if I can swing a new Ott light, or at the very least, a new bulb.
And before I forget, I have one more 20-card Christmas class coming up - Saturday, November 29, at 10:30 a.m. Please email me by Nov. 25 if you'd like to attend. It's already half full. I won't have time to have another Christmas class in December, because I have my team's annual Christmas party, I have to finish a scrapbook for my Lions' Club, and my clubs are meeting.

Lovely as a Tree Christmas card

Lovely as a Tree stamp set has been around for many, many years. And yet it still is relevant and beautiful for cards such as this one.

This Pear Pizzazz card has a layer of Lost Lagoon card stock and All is Calm Specialty Designer Paper. The tag uses the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch with the large pine from Lovely as a Tree stamped in Pear Pizzazz with a sentiment from Good Greetings. I CASE'd the layout from

Tag me for Festival of Trees

Lost Lagoon and Old Olive look fabulous together! And those silver glimmer stars are so sparkly.

This card uses Lost Lagoon ink, ribbon and card stock, as well as the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Word Window and Tree punches, and designer paper from the All is Calm Specialty pack. I saw this card on Pinterest by Glenda Calkins from

It's a Bermuda Bay Christmas

The Festival of Trees stamp set with coordinating punch is super quick and easy to use for Christmas cards. Like this one.

I started with a Whisper White card and stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink before embossing the card front with the big polka dots. The tree was stamped in Pool Party, then the dots stamped over it in Bermuda Bay. A silver foil star with a bow of twine finishes the card. I CASE'd most everything except the tree color from

Motoring on with a White Christmas stamp set

This car from the White Christmas photopolymer stamp set really resonates with me because my family had a red station wagon when I was a kid. Eight of s fit in that thing. Fond memories.

I started with a Soft Sky card and added a piece of All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper with a knot of 1/8" silver taffeta ribbon. All of the stamped images are from the White Christmas stamp set. It really is a great bargain at only $15.95. I made three different cards with the set for my most recent 20-card class that I'll be sharing in the near future. I used the silver painty pen for the hubcaps, and the 2" circle punch.
You may order any of the above items via anytime you wish! Have a fabulous day.

Invite your Freaky Friends for Halloween

Green witch. Check. Popped up bat. Check. Halloween fun card. Check! I do love Halloween - the costumes, the fun and the candy!!!

I started with an Old Olive card, embossed on the right with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. There's a 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" strip of Sweet Taffy designer series paper, with a black strip of card stock. I used the Starburst Framelits for the black layer behind the witch. She's from the Freaky Friends stamp set, as is the bat, and the greeting is from the Tee-Hee-Hee photopolymer stamp set.
I'm looking forward to a 10-card class this morning. And I'm happy for my kids that they have a 4-day weekend coming up, due to teacher conferences starting Thursday. Life is good! Hope yours is, too.

Autumn birthday with Tag Talk

Tag Talk is a great stamp set because you can use punches for all of the greetings. This one was inked using Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze markers.

Isn't this paper gorgeous? I love the colors of fall. This paper is called Color Me Autumn dsp and you'll find it in the 2014 Holiday Catalog. I added a little knot of ribbon and a layer of Crushed Curry on the Cajun Craze card base and that's it.
I made caramel apples for the first time ever for my kids and hubby. I think they look pretty fabulous! I kept it simple - with a pear cinnamon caramel a friend sent me. It smells great.
Enjoy your Monday! I always have many errands to do. lol

Seasonal swaps, make and takes

This turkey punch card is so fun! When my club members saw it, they asked to make it next month. My friend and downline, Barb, brought this for a make and take at our American Ink team gathering last week.

My bestie, Kim, brought this Halloween swap. I love the colors!

Frankie brought this Christmas card swap - a little designer paper and fabulous ribbon with a great greeting is all you need!

Mary Ann's monochromatic Christmas card wins points for sparkle - both with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and the 1/8" silver taffeta and rhinestone.

We all need fall, masculine birthday cards. Mary Ann's make and take fits the bill.

And who wouldn't love to get a festive treat bag like this one? Kim's make and take featured great stamps AND chocolate. Love it!
Our next team gathering is our annual Christmas party potluck and gift exchange the second Saturday of December. I can't wait to see what everybody makes!
I'm scheduling some posts for this coming week. I've got so many cards to share, but haven't had the time to share them! Happy Sunday!!!
