Drumroll Please.....

And finally my all-time FAVORITE card of the day! The vintage look is right up my alley and wouldn't you know......it has BLING!!! A very time-consuming card but it was worth every minute of pain-staking coloring!

More Cards

These are among the last of the cards we made with Dorothy of Stampin' Up. Again, all beautiful and can't believe these are handstamped and homemade! Way to go in choosing cards for us to create!

Another Sampling

Here's a few more cards we made at the Stampin' Up 20/20 day. Aren't they gorgeous?!?!?!?!?!

This tree one was a really cool technique (which I did wrong!) where we used the stamp covered in glue to adhere our glitter! So cool!

The fireplace one was really cool in that we used Irridecent Ice embossing powder to cover the image so it's all sparkly and beautiful!

Again, Irridecent Ice was used on the blue snowflake card. I love love love the color combo and have put this stamp set on my Christmas Wish List. I NEED this stamp set!!!!

The dove was amazingly simple to do but is one of the most beautiful cards we did. It is a simple resist technique....stamp image with VersaMark on glossy paper, heat emboss with white powder, then sponge the blue ink on....simple, simple, simple!
Have a great day everyone! I will post the rest of the cards in a day or two. Until then.....

Christmas Cards Already!!!

This past weekend I joined some of my family and friends to create Christmas cards. It's really a pleasure to get this out of the way in October because as the season crashes down upon us the last thing I want to do is be trying to create last minute cards!
This is just a sneak peak of the 20 cards we created. Each card was not too difficult but definately made the class worth going to! And every card is so beautiful I don't want to part with them! hehehehee....Thank you to our Stampin' Up consultant, Dorothy! I will post more cards tomorrow.
The angel has a shimmer over her...so pretty!!!!
Kittens are one of my favorite things, so you know I just love this card!

I love the vintage look of the card on the right... this entire card (exept the wording) was created with one stamp. Very cool! Yes, I am ordering it! :D

My Thoughts

I don't like the fact that I need sympathy cards, but I do, so I am trying to make a few ahead so I am not caught attending a service with no card in hand. These are created using Stampin' Up stamps and paper. Love love love the Stampin' Up papers! VERY nice to stamp on. :D
