~ Dazzling Divas Swap Card ~

This card displays my favorite Christmas colors. I have to admit I am mostly a traditionalist, but I do also enjoy non-traditional interpretations of holidays.

Another of one of my most enjoyable colors is SU Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which was incorporated into this layered lovely. The Holiday Mini designer paper Deck the Halls is showcased on two segments and some very pretty cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon for adornment along with pretty pearls.

Well, I think that I am just about caught up with my blog entries...I apologize for being so tardy...but I do have a valid reason...the inside of our house was torn apart for about two weeks while it was being painted.
It is all nice and clean, fresh and new and I did not have to do much new decorating except for shuffling around the pictures and wall decor...just about ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

So, I will be quite busy in the next few weeks, as mostly everyone is at this time of the year...I promise to post a few projects that I will be working on.

Until then....Happy Stamping!

~ Christmas Ornament & Flurries ~

The weather has  cooled down considerably here in sunny Phoenix, Arizona and now I yearn to see the snow on the peaks of far off mountaintops either way up north or to the east on the Four Peaks...that will not happen until January usually.

So, I thought to put together a card for our Stamp a Stack class that would bring cool thoughts of winter to each of us while everyone made a set of 5 of these.

The SU Marina Mist cardstock was used as the base and in stamping the ornament image, along with a pretty little ribbon adorning the top of the ornament!

Class was a huge success! I am looking forward to doing a Stamp a Stack sometime next year probably doing Birthday cards and Thinking of you...sometime after Easter!

~ Peace Love Joy ~

For the first time, I hosted a 10 Card Stamp a Stack class at my home this past Saturday. This is one of the cards that everyone made. I had most of the details prepared beforehand so that everyone just needed to stamp and assemble the cards. They each made 5 of this particular one.

Riding Hood Red is the main color used on is such a soft red and being that I miss our retired Ruby Red, this color does a nice job...what do you think?

Happy Stamping!

~ weSTAMP make n take & My Class Project ~

While browing the blogs of some of my favorite SU demonstrators, I came across Kimberly Van Diepen's tutorial on how to make these oh so cute Santa Hat Treat Holders. They are really quite simple!

I used SU Riding Hood Red cardstock, the SU Petals a Plenty embossing folder and a few other elements to pull this project together!

If I can do it, so can you!

Happy Crafting, Stamping, whatever...LOL!

~ Matching Gift Bag ~

And, of course I made a coordinating gift bag for Barbara to hold one of our (LOL) favorite bottles of wine!

It is so much fun making these designer gift bags and they are really so easy too!

~ Birthday Card ~

This is a one of a kind card made especially for my dear friend Barbara whose birthday was at the end of October. We eventually got together for lunch the first week of November. She and I believe that we enjoy celebrating our birthdays for however long our friends and family want to send us gifts, cards and whatever else they wish! Wouldn't you agree?

I LOVE this SU Designer Paper Elegant Soiree...the colors are so soft and elegant. I especially LOVE this particular has to be my favorite...My Dear Kind and Wonderful Friend.

Birthday Gift Bag

This gift bag was created for a very special lady friend whose 50th birthday was celebrated the previous Sunday. Inside it I placed a set of hand made cards (what else?) and some girly goodies!

The designer paper used is retired Stampin' Up! I love looking through my scraps and mixing old and new elements together for projects!

~ Peace on Earth Christmas ~

This card was case'd (copy and share everything) from Sandi McIver's blog. I just LOVE how classy this design and colors come together on this card.

About 20 of these were made, most of them for my weSTAMP monthly swap at our meeting. I still have a few left to send out as Christmas cards for this year.
