It's the Most "Wonderful Wreath" Time of the Year!

Love the simplicity of this card.....

and I didn't even do a good job of matching up the 2nd layer of leaves!  =-)  I was surprised when I used the Filigree Frame embossing folder that it was full card size and you really can't cut it down much over an 1/8th of an inch--still love it though!

I'm having people over for "Stamp Set of the Month" and let me tell you--it's a lot of fun, but it sure makes me want to get my basement finished and a stamping area set up down there--then I don't have this to contend much.

Okay--we'd still have the mess, but at least I wouldn't have to go up and down the stairs a bazillion times to get things I forgot!!    Until next time!

Holiday Home Open House

I can't begin to tell you how much I like so many of the sets in this year's holiday catalog....Holiday Home is up today and here's what I made to show the diversity of this set at our last party!

This card was totally cased from our demo magazine--cute fall card and really not too time consuming to create!  

The next card is a Christmas card that was cased from someone who made it as a  Founder's Circle swap.  I've seen it a couple of different places and really like the non-traditional colors--pear pizzazz and lost lagoon are just yummy together!

I love the use of washi tape and the dazzling diamond glimmer paper on this card.  When I get the name of the card designer I'll let you know!  In the meantime.....

More Fall Fest Fun!

Here are a couple more cards that I made using Fall Fest!  Initially I wasn't interested in ordering this set, but who can resist those cute little leaves--and the matching framelits?  Too, too, cute!

The tutorial for this card is on Julie Davison's blog here.  Really a quick and easy card to make!

I fell in love with this card the minute that I saw Sandi MacIver's video here on it!  It uses the baby wipe technique and one of my favorite sets from the holiday catalog, Wonderful Wreath.  

I'll be back soon with more!  In the meantime,
