This card used the Snow Swirled Stamp set, as well.  And, the new Holiday Treasures Designer Paper!  The tree is embossed in gold--I love it!!!


Last but not least is this very elegant card down with the To You & Yours stamp set.  The bird is stamped in Encore Gold, and the card base is Elegant Eggplant.  It's beautiful!!!

I hope everyone enjoyed the camp yesterday!!!  I always enjoy seeing everyone!! 

Enjoy your Sunday!!

Some Fall Cards!!

ood morning!!  I'm on my way out to Stamp Camp!!!  woohoo!!  These are always a lot of work for me, but soooo worth it!!  I love visiting with everyone while they stamp!  Great day for all!!!  (I'll post our cards tomorrow!) 

Here are some great fall cards I saw at convention.  I realized that I had posted a ton of Christmas ideas, but no fall!!!  I think I got a little ahead of myself!! haha!!  So, here ya go:


This was done with the Autumn Harvest stamp set!  It's a great set for watercoloring--even those with no artistic talent can make this one look good!!  (that would be me!!!)


This card was done with the Boho Backgrounds stamp set.  It's such a cute set!!


This is the Wanted stamp set--one of my favorites!  It's so easy to use!!


And another with Wanted.........


I saved the best for last!!  Isnt' this a beautiful card!!!  I just love all the details and the layering.  Gorgeous!!!

Happy Stamping!!!    

Some fun home decor

Here are some more pictures I took at Convention!  They have soooooo many displays set up, you can't possibly take them all in!  So, we all take thousands of pictures to peruse later!!  I love looking through them--really gets the creative juices flowing!!


This is a cute bulletin board.


Here we have a cute box--not really home decor, I guess............but cute anyway!!!

Update 9/26
WOW!!  I just found out who created this box!!  AND, there's a tutorial!!  Go see Marni's blogand learn how to make this!


And isn't this beautiful!!  Look close--the dowels holding the "flowers" are covering in ribbon!!! 

Happy Stamping!!

Lovely as a Tree

  Good afternoon!!  I haven't been stamping much the last couple of days--I've been busy preparing for stamp camp on Saturday!!  I'm very excited--can't wait!!!

But, in the meantime, here are some samples from Convention, featuring the Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set!  This is one of my favorite sets--so versatile!!







Hope these gave you some inspiration!!!

Happy Stamping!!

September Shoebox Swap!

Good morning!!  What fun we had last night!!!  Big thanks to everyone who came!  I absolutely loved all the cards we made!  And, I always love the time we spend together, stamping and chatting!!  I have such a great group!!!

Here are some of the cards we made last night:

Shoebox 028 

By Rachelle!!  This is so pretty, isn't it?!!  Love that Big Shot!!!

Shoebox 040 

Jenni brought this card!  Isn't that paper beautiful!!  I always forget to order it because it's in the Spanish Catalog!!! 

Shoebox 033 

This card was made by Anne--she used the Ghosting Technique!  You just might see this card at the Stamp-a-Stack on October 3rd & 4th!!  It's so pretty, and, not too hard to do!!

I'll share a couple more tomorrow!!  I need to go clean house now so I can stamp this afternoon!!

Have a great day!

One more Club Card...........

Okay, here's one more!!  I actually designed most of this month's cards--which is unusual!  haha!!  I usually CASE most of them!!  Hey, there's so much talent out there, why not?!!  


This card is made with the new Sock Monkey stamp set!!  Isn't he cute?!!

Colors used:  Kraft and Real Red!! 

Pretty basic card, but I think it would be a very cute kid's card! 

To see the rest of the Cards for September, just look at the "Fall Card Club" photo album!!  (look in the right sidebar)


Happy Stamping!!

Another card club!!!  Last night was our meeting--fun as usual!!  I hope everyone else has as much fun as I do!!

This is one of my favorite cards!!  It took me a long time to arrive at this final version, but I was VERY happy with it!!  I'm also using it for my downline meeting on Monday evening.  We're doing a Shoebox Swap, and this is one of my cards!

Stamp Camp Treats

Only 8 days until the BIG Christmas card camp!!  And, I feel pretty good--I'm about 70% ready!!  Just need to do a couple of things, and I'll be good to go!!!  Here are some treats I made for my guests:


I used the Holiday Treasures Designer Paper and the Sweet Sampler Stamp Set.  These little pillow boxes were made with the Big Shot and die!!!  SOOOOOO easy to do!!!  And, they just take one strip of adhesive!!!  These will be fun to use at Christmas, Halloween, etc!!!  So many possibilities!


For these, I covered some Hershey Nuggets with the same Designer Paper, then just slipped them inside.  Three fit perfectly!!

Have a wonderful day!!!
