I made these for a card swap I participated in over the weekend. I used the Every Little Bit stamp set and the Occasional Quotes (hostess level 3 set) for the sentiment. I also used the new Scallop Squares Duo die from the Holiday Mini and Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I got the color scheme from the Jolly Holiday Design Series Paper.
Here are a couple of other cards using the other striped paper in the Jolly Holiday pack.
I got a ton of great ideas and I'll post some pictures of those over the next couple of days.
I'm not sure which version of this card I like better. I was trying to make a simple card, but also use up some of my ribbon. The layout is a 'case' from a card I made in a stamp camp I attended a while ago. Thanks for visiting!
We had amazing weather this weekend, perfect for picking pumpkins. We headed to the pumpkin patch right down the road from our house. They had a really cute tractor ride for the little ones. Each barrel was decorated as a different animal.
There were a lot of green pumpkins and pumpkin blossoms out in the field.
And we found some cool looking corn in the field too.
I made this card using the Stampin' Up! Birthday Bakery and Perfect Punches stamp sets. I used the Elegant Lines embossing folder to add some interest to the background. Since the Real Red is kind of a dark color, I actually decorated the inside - which I almost never do!
Here's another Christmas Card I made using the Real Red and Crumb Cake combination. I used the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder for the background. The frame for the sentiment is from the Tags Til Christmas set and sentiment is from Occasional Quotes. Here's a close-up of the embossing and some embellishment I added.
I made a couple of Halloween treat boxes. I embellished one with the Stampin' Up! bat punch an done using a charm that I got last year from a craft store. I really like this candy wrapper die. I can't believe its almost Halloween already, I better hurry and make my treats!!
I know its been a while since I've posted. We've been super busy with things around here. We went on an amazing 2 week trip to Italy. It was a much needed vacation for the both of us. We loved Venice, had a great time in Florence and had a lot of fun with my cousin and her husband in Milan. We're already thinking about our next trip!
Since we've been back from our trip, both of us have been so busy with work, more than just the normal vacation catch up. Its been a little rough. But this weekend I finally got a chance to do some crafts, so hopefully I'll be back on track now.
