The Happy Couple & Christmas Quilt Cards

The wedding went off without a hitch. We weren’t allowed any photos at the Chapel of the Flowers where they got married, so this is at brunch after the wedding. It was a lovely ceremony, simple. You can check out the card we gave them  HERE! And I have to share these cute soaps. Nectar Bath Treats store is in the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. OMG, that store smells amazing, but not like going…

Gourd Goodness

What a fun name for a stamp set. I originally bought this set because of the beautiful leaves, but look at these gorgeous pumpkins. Its a two step stamp with both pumpkins. At first when I stamped the solid image, I thought, you really don’t need the 2nd stamp…….boy was I wrong. It totally makes the pumpkin “pop”. Then I “winked” it with Wink of Stella. The stems each have two stamps too. I am…

Painted Harvest, Patty’s Way

Isn’t this card beautiful? This one was designed by Patty. Its got 6 layers but still a simple design. We started off with a Whisper White card base (you could use the new Thick Very Vanilla too). The flowers were stamped on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight for the first color, then Crushed Curry to add the highlights. The inside of the flowers are Early Espresso as well as the sentiment. We fussy cut the…

Simple Painted Harvest Card

This is another card we will make in my Stamp Club Class on September 5th. The Painted Harvest stamp set is amazing to use. Its a two step stamp. My first layer is Daffodil Delight, then Crushed Curry. The center of the flower is Soft Suede. You will notice that I’m only stamping half of the flower. Start in the center and then do the one on top and bottom. Mine aren’t perfectly centered, but…

Coffee Cafe Swap Cards

These are my swaps for the Luv2stamp meeting on Saturday. I love this suite of products. Funny thing; I don’t even like coffee, but everyone I know does. I love the smell of coffee too. I used several different pieces of the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. I changed up the cup with Designer Series paper as well. You will notice the strip of diamonds, that is Embossing Paste colored with re-inker. After it was…

Daisy Delight, Coneflower

The Daisy Delight is probably one of my favorite bundles in the new catalog. You also save 10% when you purchase the bundle, stamp set and matching punch. I happened to see this flower on Lee Ann Greff’s blog a while back. I always forget that we can stamp right on our Designer Paper, which is exactly what LeeAnn did.  Aren’t they pretty? I love this look. My Stamp Club Gals will be making this…

Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, You’ll Want them

Have you tried the Stickers in the Eastern Palace Bundle yet? They aren’t your normal “sticker” much nicer, and like the dies they nest inside each other, so you get more bang for your buck. Two sheets of 2 different designs.  I stuck my sticker to some Dapper Denim Cardstock and then die cut them with the matching dies. This is a pretty simple card, but with the gold makes it a really nice card,…
