White Christmas Starburst Card


Hi Friends! I've got a super cute card to share with you today, featuring the new "White Christmas" stamp set and Starburst Framelits:


What do you think? Super adorable, right? I love this stamp set!  I used my ink pads and aqua painter to color the image and a sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the snow just finished the card perfectly.  That glitter sure does make me happy...just sayin'.

Here are the supplies I used:

I've got a super fun event planned for tomorrow night; 14 ladies are coming to a private card making class and I am really excited about it.  I know they're going to have a blast - everyone will be making four cards (two Christmas and two birthday).  My lovely hostess, Tanya, chose the card themes and I'll have everything precut and ready for the ladies.  When they arrive all they'll have to do is grab their drink and start stamping and creating!  This is a fabulous way to start the weekend and spend a Friday or Saturday night with friends. So on that note, I'd better start cutting the supplies!

Lovely as a Tree in fall



 Hello Passport Pals
  Frenchie here for a fall share. It is almost over the season of bright colors and soon it will be bare but while the color are very vivid I would say time to spend all the time we can out door to enjoy the beauty of this season before it is to cold well I guess that is for people in the north but we the northern are so lucky to have these beautiful color so today it is fall showcase with Lovely as a Tree. Did you know that this set is the oldest stamp set in the Stampin'Up! catalog this yeat? Yes it is and I still love it after 13 years I would say this set will never get old.
Today I stamp the trees in Early Espresso and sponge some Tangelo Twist, Crush Curry, Old Olive to bring the fall colors in. I punch the 2½ circle in Old Olive and the next layer in Whisper white. The Hello Fall is from the set For All Thing in the Holiday catalog.
Well My friends this is it for my fall share this week till next time Happy Stampin'

Christmas Envelope Gift Card Holder

I have a  fun project for you today; a gift card holder created from an envelope! This may be new to some of you and an oldie but a goodie for others but I have always loved this little holder.  It's such a clever way to combine a card with a gift all folded up into one.

Sympathy Card


Hi Friends.  The father of a very dear friend of mine passed away a couple of days ago and my heart just breaks for her. I know how hard it is to lose a parent; my (step) mom passed four years ago and I miss her terribly.  No matter what the circumstances it's never easy and we realize after our loved ones are gone just how big that void is in our heart.  It's our memories and experiences that we need to be so grateful for - and to remember to cherish the ones we love and make the most of each day.

I took some time today to create a sympathy card for my friend, to send her lots of love and to let her know I'm here for her:


The inside of the card.

I stamped the envelope too.

Basic Coloring


Hi Friends! As promised in yesterday's post, I've got another video for my "Simple Sentiments Series" featuring Basic Coloring. I had hoped to have this post done for you much earlier today but look what held me up:


I've been chopping, slicing, coring all these gorgeous apples from our heirloom trees. And these aren't all the apples - not by a long shot.  I'd since filled another huge basket full, as today's wind knocked even more apples from the trees. And it's not counting all the apples that have already gone into the freezer, apple butter, apple jam, pie fillings and nightly desserts.  I've never really had an apple tree - let alone LOTS of apple trees - before, and I must say, I am loving it! It's sooo awesome to walk 6 steps into our back yard and fill baskets with heavenly fruit. So with today's apples I really want to recreate the delicious cider (specifically Thatchers) that I enjoy whilst visiting England - I'll let you know how it goes. In the meantime, if you've got a favourite apple recipe to share, please do! Just leave a comment with your apple recipe and I'll send you some hand stamped cards in the mail! How's that for a sweet deal? LOL

So onto today's video.  If you've missed my previous videos from my "Simple Sentiments Series", they're all about basic stamping, focused for those who are new to the hobby (as well as those who need a little reminder).  Today's topic is all about coloring.  In the video I demonstrated four cards which I colored using our ink pads, markers, blender pens and aqua painters.  Enjoy!
