Stampin' UP! Merry Decor Elements

I was going to rub the Merry Trees vinyl to my wall but a friend suggested putting it on glass so that I could reuse it every year.  I found an antique picture frame I hadn't been using and rubbed it onto the glass.  It combines a little modern with the old but I like it.  And you  know how I feel about my RED! It was such a quick fun project and would make a nice Christmas gift.

Cherry Cobbler Double Embossed

This is my friend, RaeDeen's card.  She cased it from a card on splitcoast.  She embossed it, covered the embossed area with versamark and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Isn't it so pretty with the chocolate chip ribbon and little snowflake charm?  Thanks for sharing RaeDeen!  She and I can talk cards for hours!!  LOL

Candy Cane Christmas

I love the Candy Cane Christmas paper and will be ordering more before the holiday mini catalog ends.  I received this card from a leadership demo swap.  Shawn Perez designed it and I don't think it could be any cuter.  Thanks Shawn! 
Also, keep checking the Stampin UP website as there will be some kind of sale that will be starting next Monday.  I have no idea what it will involve but I know how much my stampers LUV sales!  I'm looking forward to it myself.

Button, Button with Simple Friendship

I combined a couple of challenges into this card.  I used poppy parade and tempting turquoise to make a card with a retro feel.  Friend is from the Simple Friendship set and the buttons will be in the Button, Button stamp set coming in the new mini for sale in January.  The buttons are really fun to add to cards without adding bulk.

Sneak Peek of New Button, Button SU set!

My brand spanking new Button, Button stamp set arrived today.  I inked it with pumpkin pie and used a strip of the sweet and sour specialty paper.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Curly Cute, a go-to set for lots of my latest cards.  I punched the birthday label with the sides of the round tab punch.  The Button, Button stamp set has 17 darling buttons and will be available to order in the next mini catalog.

Love you a Latte!!

I used the Pun Fun set to make this card with the Jolly Holiday designer paper.  Sometimes it is fun to just switch things up.  This is a tri-fold card with a mini library clip from Stampin UP.

Three Little Words

The background is stamped with the woodgrain background stamp.  Three little words is stamped with cajun craze on very vanilla.  The pumpkin pie ribbon gives the pop of color.  I really like the versatility of the Paisley Prints stamp set as it will take you through the seasons with a tree, pumpkin, leaf, and heart.  And three little words can say a lot!

Inspired by Nature sees Fall in Iowa

Our home is located on a hill overlooking our small town.  We can see over the top of the town and for miles and miles in the country.  The trees have turned colors so a glance out the window is all it takes to inspire me.  Cherry cobbler, olive green and very vanilla were used to make this card.  I used the markers on the inspired by nature stamp set by coloring the images directly on the stamp and giving them a huff.  Works every time.  This is also one of my swap cards.
