Encircled In Friendship

 Hey everyone!


Did you receive this card from me?  It's the card I sent out to everyone that placed an order with me in August.  I love the fall look of this card!


The card base is Merry Merlot that was die cut with the dotted line die from the Stitched Leaves dies.  The Pale Papaya panel was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder.  That panel was topped with a panel from the beautiful Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the greeting (from Encircled in Friendship) in Merry Merlot ink on Basic White cardstock.  I cut out the greeting and a layering circle from the BeDazzling paper using the Layering Circles dies.  To complete the card I sprinkled Genial Gems on the card front.

Feels Like Home

 Hello friends,


Two weeks.  Fifteen days.  Saleabration ends on September 30.  And when it does, so does any opportunity to pick up those freebies!

I recently made this card to celebrate a new homeowner.  I used the Feels Like Home Saleabration stamp set for the image and Peaceful Moments for the greeting.


The new homeowner is a male, so I went with a monochromatic look for my card.  The card base and stamped images are Evening Evergreen.  The framing panel, door color, and sponging around the edge of the Basic White card stock are Soft Succulent.

Whimsical Trees

 Hey everyone,

Traditionally when I design our Christmas cards, they feature trees.  Last year was an exception, when the gnomes took that spot.  But with the Whimsical Trees bundle in this years July-December Mini, we may be sending trees again.  I love this suite!  The stamps, the dies, the pretty paper, and the ribbon - all favorites!


And while I'm not yet ready for all Christmas, all the time, it was fun to pull out these products and have a play.  I can tell that it's going to be a favorite!


For the card above, I used the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP for the background of the card.  And using a second paper from that same pack, I die cut the three trees using the Christmas Tree Dies.  I stamped the greeting in Misty Moonlight on a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut it using the Scalloped Contour Dies.  A length of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon is behind the greeting panel.


For the second card, I used the Peaceful Prints DSP from Saleabration for the background.  I used the Be Dazzling paper (Saleabration) and the Snowy White Velvet Sheets to die cut the small trees.  I used a dauber and Real Red ink on the White Velvet sheet.  The greeting for the second card is from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set.

Nature's Harvest

 Hi everyone,


During my most recent Facebook Live, I made three cards using the fabulous Nature's Harvest bundle.  Here is a look at the cards I made.


This versatile bundle is perfect for your all occasion cards.  Change up the color scheme as you like.


This thank you card highlights the beautiful cone flowers that I colored with Stampin' Blends.  I used the cork paper as a background for those flowers.


During the Live I mentioned that I cased this second card, but couldn't find it again to give proper credit.  Well, I went back and took another look.  I cased it from Rose Grunewald.  Thanks Rose, I love this card!


In my last card, I used the Cork Paper and Be Dazzling paper from Saleabration 2.0 for two of the die cuts.  The papers add so much texture and interest to the card.

If you missed the "Live", you can watch the replay here:



All the measurements for the cards are in the video.  Also, at the end, I shared 4 more cards using this same bundle that I received from a recent swap.  Check them out!
