The sentiment was stamped in cherry cobbler on white then layered with garden green then cherry cobbler.
I had so much fun making this card.... I would have used it for my christmas card if it were not so bulky to mail......

This is another variation on the card with the Santa with the red Dazzling details on the suit to add sparkle.
The snowflake front has the larger snowflake stamped in Cherry cobbler embellished the red Dazzling details on the tips and a jewel in the center (although hard to see and missing from the snowflake sample above- Jeez!). The snowflake in front was stamped with cherry onto white CS then diecut with coordinating snowflake die. It was placed, snowflake stamped side down onto Big shot multipurpose adhesive sheets then placed onto dazzling diamond glitter to adhere it as shown with a dimensional.
Happy Holidays to you all!

I love even more that it is done using just a half sheet of cardstock which makes it even easier for me.
Options are endless. This time I embossed the left side of the card with the woodgrain embossing folder- a basic must in every stamper's toolbox- and used the Sweater weather DSP on the right stamped with the sentiment from Truly Grateful stampset in chocolate chip. The turkey is stamped twice chocolate chip on whisper white and in Crushed Curry to layer it. Add dimensional to layer over the smoky slate then tangerine tango.
Flip side has tags for you with the thanksgiving entiment in tangerine rock and rolled around chocolate to edge it.
Write a special message using the White stampin Chalk marker and how cool would that be?

I have a lot to be thankful for this year. My family's good health, everyone has a job, my home renovation is almost completed, my mother in law is cooking Thanksgiving and all I have to do I bring the ice cream and the screaming hoard of hungy kids- check!
This is a little thanksgiving card I made as a thank you to my customers this month. The base card is white with a layer of chocolate chip embossed with Woodgrain on top and with a layer or Burlap ribbon, cut in half lengthwise and the strands teased to create a fringe. The acorn from Truly Grateful in chocolate chip then used the blender pen to smudge the ink a bit. punched with 1 1/4 inch circle punch and the tangerine CS with 1 3/8 inch circle punch.
Thank from Harvest of Thanks stamped in tangerine then rolled around the edge with chocolate chip to create the two tone effect.

The base card is a half sheet of Summer Starfruit 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 diecut with the circle card thinlit die.
pull the right side of the card over the die so that it does not get diecut to create an extension to the card. There are lots of how-to's on the internet on this. DO stamping shows it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwedAASXzok Emboss using the Houndstooth textured impressions folder just over the front flap.
Punch 2 3/8 scallop (similar to die in the set) in pumpkin pie and black and overlap as shown and glue onto the front part of the circle. Attach the Tags-4-you trick or treat after stamping in basic black and punching with coordinating punch using dimensionals. tape 2 inch strip of Witch's brew DSP on the right side.
Stamp toil and trouble in pumpkin onto a 2 1/2 circle in vanilla and stamp the raven in black.
Stamp the bat oval and cut away a little setionon the left to make it flush.

I am thankful for all my friends but I wanted it to say thank you. Then I thought there is a U in thankFUL - so I just cut the f and the l out to make the little thank u. U get the idea.
Base card is Cajun Craze with a layer of Artichoke to Accent. The maple is stamped using versamark onto glossy CS - retired SU- then sponged cajun and artichoke using a dauber. Once the colors are all saturated, wipe with a tissue and the white just pops. The expression is diecut using a whisper white CS. Took a little doing to get the little nits out but not too hard. Enjoy!

Is this not the cutest easiest card? Stamped the flowers using Raspberry Ripple onto Primrose Petal CS. There is directionality to the stamp so I put a little mark using a Sharpie on the bottom of the stamp that coordinates with the punch so I could easily punch it out. Something about punching is so satisfying to me. It goes so quick that for something you think you will use a LOT like this flower, it makes more sense to use the punch than a diecut. I used the Pretty Print textured impressions folder for the square panel but you could just as well use a 3x3 piece of DSP. Hello from Four You stampset. Used the stayput technique for the ribbon and easy peasy done.

Base of soft suede and stripe embossed night of navy. stamped the flags in same, Navy, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, and crumbcake.
I have been playing with the watermark for my pictures and I think I finally figured out how to do it. Font is still too small but it's still readable.
Now that we are living in a smaller footprint of our house during the renovation, there appears to be less house to clean and more time to stamp and read. Didn't expect that.......

It reminded me of how I used to carve erasers to make stamps years before all the new beautiful professional images came to being. There are 2 tools included a narrow v shape cutting tool for details and a U shape for larger areas. They are
This is a picture of Doggy I had Dylan draw on a piece of paper with pencil. I then took that image, put it on the rubber penciled side down and rubbed it to transfer the image. It will be a mirror image but that is ok because when you stamp it will be a mirror image again.
Now I am thinking angrybirds, R2D2, my mind is going wonky over all the possibilities......

Well, I got home last night to set up the party to see the big electrician van sitting in my driveway. They were in the midst of relocating my electrical panels and they were not done -

Speaking of winning, they have prize patrol, and those of you who know me, know that I NEVER and I mean NEVER win anything that is chance related. But what do you know? I actually won the very first prize patrol.
This opened my eyes to possibilities I never considered. Using the personalized stamps for a saying ( I thought of you Chrissy when I saw this- in case you are reading this).
( Gosh, I keep using these words- love fantastic cute- but it really was!)
