Layered Lemon Zest Card!

Card 33

Hi Stampers!

I bought this set a while back, but I haven’t really had time to play with it until now, and let me tell you…I’m even more in love with it than I was before! The sentiments are so perfect, and the lemons are so cute! If you pick up this set, make sure you get the punch, too–you can save 10% if you buy the bundle below–because you NEED it! So much!! πŸ˜‰

Birthday Bling Card!

Card 32 (1)

Hi Stampers!

A couple of weeks ago, I did a craft fair and gave away the following goodies:

Card 32 (2)

…before the giveaway, I challenged myself to come up with samples so that my customers could see what could be done with those few supplies! I made a few samples to show off, but today’s Birthday Bling Card is my favorite, and I wanted to share it with you! πŸ™‚

Mini Thankful for You Card!

Card 31 (1)

Hi Stampers!!

Today I’m sharing a smaller version of yesterday’s Thankful for You Card! While we didn’t make this one in class, this is something I came up with while working on the larger card, and I really liked it! This card measures 3in x 3in, and it’s a perfect match for the WHISPER WHITE 3×3 ENVELOPES offered in the Holiday Catalog!

Here are both cards together so you can compare the two:

Card 31 (2)

Which is your fave? Honestly, I’m kinda in love with them both, but if I have to choose, then I choose the larger card because it can go in the mail! Don’t let that keep you away from the 3×3 cards, though…they are perfect for gift giving! πŸ™‚

Harvest Thankful for You Card!

Card 30

Hi Stampers!

On Monday, I shared one of the cards from my Harvest Holiday Stamp-a-Stack class last week, and today I’m sharing the other card we made! (We always make four cards, two each of two designs!)

The PAINTED HARVEST Stamp Set is a “two-step” stamp set, and you use two stamps to get the beautiful sunflower image you see above! To get a nice contrast, I like to stamp the base image in a lighter color, and then stamp a darker color on top with the second stamp! In this case, I first stamped Daffodil Delight directly onto the card, and then I stamped over it with Crushed Curry! It’s beautiful here, online, but it looks even better in person! πŸ™‚

Merry Paw La La Card!

Card 29

Hi Stampers!!

I’m totally in love with the SANTA PAWS Stamp Set, and the MERRY MUSIC SPECIALTY Designer Series Paper is a perfect match for this caroling trio! Finish it with the BLACK RHINESTONE JEWELS, and you have the perfect holiday card for both pet, and animal, lovers! πŸ™‚

Spooky DSP Halloween Card!

Card 28

Hi Stampers!

This is one of the cards we made in my Harvest Holiday Stamp-a-Stack class last Wednesday!! We used the SPOOKY NIGHT DSP (Designer Series Paper) to make the banners, cut out the cat (with the cat punch), and then we fussy cut the pumpkins!

I hope you enjoy making this fun card!
