Happy Birthday to my Mum!

My Mum is having a birthday today!  She is 90 today and my sisters and I have taken her on a 7-night Caribbean cruise (Symphony of the Seas) to celebrate her milestone birthday.

This is the card I made for her:

I used a stamp set that is retired but one that fits for this occasion.

This is the inside:

Shaded Spruce Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

This is a Christmas Card that I made using  one of the new bundles from the new Holiday Catalogue.
The colour that I chose to focus on was Shaded Spruce.

The Wrapped in Plaid Suite has a bundle that includes a stamp set and coordinating punch (tree shape) - Perfectly Plaid.  There is also an absolutely gorgeous coordinating 6x6  Specialty Designer Series Paper pack, and I used one of the Shaded Spruce pieces.

To give more texture to my card I used the stitched dies to cut both rectangle and circle shapes.

These are the elements added to the front of the card.
The "Merry Christmas" was stamped more to the left so that I could add my jingle bell embellishment.

Fall card with copper accents

Another Fall card using the Copper Foil paper for accents.  I also used the Copper Delicata ink pad. It takes a bit longer to dry so make sure to leave some extra time or try to gently dry the ink with a heat gun.

I saw this online somewhere and I apologize that I have searched the post and cannot give credit to the designer.  I changed it up and added the Copper Trim in the top left corner.  To save foil paper make sure to cut out the sprig punch x 4 and your Apple/Pumpkin punch before you assemble your card!

Fall Beauty & Joy

My fall themed card using the set Beauty and Joy from the Occasions Holiday catalogue.  I just love the Distinktive stamps.  Used Merry Merlot for my background and some of the fall DSP!

To make my leaves many different colours I inked up in the lightest colour and then added other fall coloured ink with sponge daubers.
