Heron Birthday Card

This is a Birthday card I made for my Son-in-Law, Peter. He is quite the outdoor enthusiast so I thought this would be a great stamp for a card for him. I saw the stamp on a card on SCS. The womans did her card in soot stamping. This is done with a resist technique and distress inks. I used coordinations paper. Happy Birthday Peter!

I used the new Spellbinders A-2 matting set. I must say I really enjoy just picking colors and cutting just once with the dies instead of cutting several times to get the proportions right.  The stamp is from Impression Obsession.

Fall Cards

We had another fun Stampin Up night at Sunny's house last night.   These are great fall cards. I plan to send the one with the leaves to my Mom in New Mexico. There was a third card however when I took the picture I realized I taped it upside silly!  Thanks again Sunny!!

I love the die cut with the phrase showing. It makes the inside of your card for you.

This is the new embossing folder from SU. We used coordinations paper and sanded it.

The branches are from the SU bird punch (so many uses!) I love the way she constructed the wreath with yarn.

Spoiler Alert!! This is my calendar page for December!

I really like the way this turned out so I am posting it early. We have a family/friends (who are like family) calendar swap every year. My daughter does the calendar part and sends out our month assignments. It measures 7 X 5 and we place them in the stand up acrylic frames you buy a JoAnns. Each person makes an ATC to place beside the calendar for that month. This is not quite an ATC because of the shape and dimensions but I couldn't resist. I have had this cardinal stamp for a gazillion years unmounted and was waiting for something perfect to use it on.

The pine branches are a punch by Martha Stewart. I used a Spellbinder die for the highlighted area.

W is for Women

This was also a fun theme. I went for vintage (surprise, surprise).

Sunny. Love the perfume bottles with the highlight

Jerri. Just two friend having + goodies. Fun!

Gretchen. Great saying!

Deb. I think this is a new SU shoe, love the embossing

Me. I have no idea where I got the "fe-Mail" stamp as I unmounted it. The paper is graphic 45 I think with a woman's face stamp from Invoke.

Here are the U rolodex cards. I don't remember if I posted my individual creations previously...have to forgive my memory! I really liked this theme as I have always been enamored with the stars...moons... really anything celestial. Great work everyone.
