Scentsational Christmas

Are you already for Christmas? I'm close I've finished my Christmas shopping and now I can really get cracking on all the holiday paper crafts I wanted to complete like Christmas tags and various treat holders, The fun stuff right?  So I will keep this post short.

The size of this card is 4x4 and seems to be a go to size for me, so I've been told. I really do have fun making this size card for just about anything whether it be to hold a gift card or even to just accompany a gift. I used Be of Good Cheer DSP for the base of the card (this dsp is located in the current catalog on pg.164). I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I layered a piece very vanilla card stock on the inside so that I would have someplace to write. Well off to spend some quality time with my family today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Thinking of You

Here's a card that we did at a recent Super Stampers. The ladies requested that we do not do Christmas and could they do a variety of occasions for the projects. I knew for sure then that I wanted to do a masculine card that could be for any occasion especially for a man's birthday if chose to. So this is what I came up with. I love the lovely as a tree set and it looks so pretty when embossed you may not be able to see it in the picture but this was heat embossed using pewter embossing powder. I'm really loving the new Core'dinations card stock especially when used with the woodgrain embossing folder it gives that added texture. I gotta run off to do some much needed errands.

Paper: Early Espresso, Core'dinations Early Espresso, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze and Orchard Harvest

Stamp Sets: Lovely as a Tree, Sweet Essentials

Ink: Early Espresso, Versa Mark

Accessories: Apothecary Accents, Autumn Accents, 1" square punch, Ribbon Slides, Early Espresso Stitched Ribbon, Lucky Limeade Ribbon, Pewter Embossing Powder and sanding block

Beautiful Birthday

I made this card back in October for my cousin Niki. It took a bit of time to get it to her between turn of events with life and the post office it caused it to get to her later than I'd hoped. For this card I wanted to do something simple and elegant. I have a really hard time with simple and I tend to add lots of layers or embellishments sometimes even both, so I thought I'd challenge myself a bit. I don't think I did too bad. Thanks for stopping by! =D
