I scored the Very Vanilla CS in a diamond pattern before stamping Dasher in Chocolate chip. I'm thinking of doing a second one but adding shimmer paint on the antler area. I pulled the colors for the mat layers from the Designer Paper (Merry Moments). the sentiment is from All Holidays. A simple and fast card.

Holiday Lineup

How many of you have a box of images that you made at some time or the other and then didn't end up using them? This is one from my box, I did it sometime last year and then never did any thing with it. The brad is where it is only because last year I used a felt snowflake and this year we don't have them. I used the designer paper from Merry Moments and pulled the card base and the mat from that. So another Christmas card finished with out much work. (at least not much work this year)

House of Haunts

This is this years Halloween card! I confess I don't really send Halloween cards, and have only received one, once (from my nephew Kyle). I use my Halloween stamps for scrap booking. This card starts with a Dusty Durango base. Happy Halloween is embossed in black. I stamped the image in Versamark and embossed it in black on Watercolor paper. With a Versamark pen I scribbled some more ground around the tree and embossed that as well. With a 3/4" punch I punched a post it note on the sticky edge and added my moon. With Watercolor Wonder Crayons I painted my sky. I used Summer Sun around my moon, the rest of the sky is a blending of Not Quite Navy, Brilliant Blue, Night of Navy, and Elegant Eggplant. It is matted with Dusty Durango and Elegant Eggplant.

Where were you in 2001? and Christmas

It's interesting at how major events effect our lives, it was a beautiful morning in Southern California and I was getting the kids off to school when my husband called and said turn on the news. I watched as the second plane hit. So today we fly the flag and wonder what we can do to make a better America.
Now for a card, I've made a lot of Christmas cards lately as I try to decide what cards to use for my monthly Christmas card classes. This one is so simple and in real life looks so great, I had so many comment on it that it will be in an upcoming class. You can't tell from the photo but the card base is Handsome Hunter, then Bravo Burgundy, then Whisper White. The Welcome Christmas is embossed Bravo Burgundy, the tree I stamped in Stazon and added Dazzling Diamonds on top. Simple but lovely.

Pun Fun- Hippo

The long week end is over and the new week begins! Tonight my hostess club starts up again, I still have openings, if anyone is interested in joining send me an e-mail.
The hippo is my favorite from this set I wish we had a stamp that said "I was born today" this would make the best baby card. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with the watercolor wonder crayons. The designer paper is from Razzleberry Lemonade, the card stock is Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose and Rose Red. Have a great day!

Bugs and Kisses

This Bugs and Kisses card is done in the new In Colors, Bermuda Bay, Soft Bay, and Dusty Durango, as well as Whisper White. The Dusty Durango Designer paper that bugs and kisses is stamped on is from the Razzleberry Lemonade set. Easy card and a fun one too.

Country Morning

I really like this hostess set and the Bella Bleu designer paper almost looks like chicken wire when used behind the image. Watercoloring is one of my favorite things to do when making a card, the little image of the chick and egg fits perfectly in the designer label from the Vanilla Hodge Podge. The card base is Very Vanilla CS and the designer paper as well as the image of the rooster is matted with Not Quit Navy CS. I hope you like this card. Have a great day!
