Pines and Poinsettias

This was a make and take for our monthly downline meeting of the Dazzling Divas. This card was just about a total case of one that I found somewhere and I sadly have misplaced the name of the lovely artist, so if anyone knows her, please contact me and I will surely give her credit.

This card just exudes the warm and fuzzy feeling of the Holiday Season, of which my favorite is Christmas.
I just LOVE the real red and chocolate chip reminds me of red velvet cake :)

This little pretty is by no means simple...and I totally enjoyed using our beautiful specialty designer paper from the Holiday Mini...Holiday Berry Bouquet in all its' glory here!

This is the beginning of my making merry for the upcoming celebrations, parties, gatherings with family and friends, near and far.

Happy Stamping!

~ Christmas Lodge ~

This has to be my favorite stamp set this year and I could not wait to use it! I love the lodge image, it was inked in chocolate chip ink and watercolored with wild wasabi, the snow was highlighted with our gorgeous Dazzling Details glitter and it sparkles so very nicely!

Cherry cobbler is the base card the next layer being chocolate chip with the edges frayed a little, then a layer of stunning Holly Berry Bouquet specialty designer series paper. I cannot wait to used up this entire package as each and every print is just too beautiful and needs to be shared with my family and friends this year!

The new 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon I used is the cherry cobbler. It also comes in early espresso. The sentiment is stamped in cherry cobbler onto some crumb cake cardstock, which was also distressed around the edges.

Christmas is coming...Happy Stamping!

~ Holiday Stocking ~

Here is another project that we made in class this past Saturday. The original design was created by DeAnn Rauzi. The girls really liked this using the all NEW Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die in our Holiday Mini Catalog. Some very vanilla cardstock was cut and them embossed with the textured impressions folder...Northern Flurry...and the tip and heel and brim of the stocking were impressed with the Lattice folder, then sponged with some soft suede ink and adorned with of course, our lovely rhinestones. The ribbons used to accent the rim were some very vanilla velvet stitched ribbon, very vanilla satin ribbon, and some early espresso wide grosgrain...and...linen thread strung with a few of our cute little mini jingle bells...and...yes...they really do jingle!

~ Snow Swirled ~

We made this pretty easy card in my monthly class this past Saturday. I was looking for something fun, easy and elegant and this is what transpired. The beautiful stamp set Snow Swirled Christmas tree image was inked up with white shimmer frost paint, accented with some of our beautiful rhinestones and framed with our scallped oval die and run through our snowflake embossing folder!

Hope that you like it!

Happy Stamping!

Hopping Just For The Fun of It!

Thank you for hopping today with us, “Hopping Just for the Fun of it”. Today’s theme is Halloween / Fall Happenings, do hop thru our fun hop this Saturday featuring Fall and Halloween projects..... Plan on visiting us each month, the next hop will be the first Saturday of the month, Nov 5.. I happen to be Stop # 1 of 17 stops along the way this month.

As you can probably already surmise, this little pretty was made with SU crumb cake, early espresso, cajun craze and peach parfait.  One of my favorite all time SU stamp sets Fall Foilage was used  to stamp the leaves in the torn very vanilla image. This card was cased from a  beautiful card by Anne-Marie Bouthillette on SCS (  The ribbon is SU chocolate chip and various vintage brads were used in the making of this card creation as it was one of many (about 20 to be exact) that were shared at my monthly downline meeting of weSTAMP which is hosted by my dear, kind and wonderful upline...Lorri Heilling. Enjoy!

This little lovely was taught to my wonderful attendees at my monthly class in September. At the Henderson, NV SU Regionals I participated in a 3-D swap with my weSTAMP group and one of the ladies, Michele Acuna made these lovely roses...well, you know I just had to teach them to my dear friends (students) and each and every one of them went home with their very own Fall Foilage Gift Tag!!!

Do you like how this turned out? I may be making a Christmas version of this...What do you think?

Don’t forget we love comments if possible. To continue the hop, the next Stop # 2 is My Creative Impressions with Jeanne & Joan Norris. I am sure you will enjoy their project this month. If you should happen to get lost anywhere thru the hop. you can go to the main blog, Hopping Just for the Fun of it. Thanks for hopping with us.

Hope that you enjoyed this stop along the way on yor hop...Happy Hopping!!!
