Stampin' Up! Embossed Christmas Star!

Hi!  Tonight I wanted to share a quick card with you.  I love how this one turned out!  Midnight Muse and Silver really compliment one another.  I embossed the Christmas Star stamp, then scored it to give it some dimension.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to raise it off the paper.  Isn't the Pretty Printed Embossing Folder used for the background beautiful?

All Products Stampin' Up! 
Stamps: Christmas Star  and Greetings of the Season (yes, it's still available)
Cardstock:  Midnight Muse

All of these items can be purchased in my online Stampin' Up! Store.  Just click here to go straight there.  

I've got lots more to share with you!  Be sure to keep checking the blog.

Loving the Expressions Thinlits Dies... Thankful!

Hi!  Today I was able to go to my Stampin' Up! Team meeting.  These meetings are so inspirational and fun!  One of the things that we all love to do at any Stampin' Up! event is swap.  We usually just make a ton of one card design and swap them out with each other.  That way, we come home with lots of different samples to share with our own customers and friends.  Here's the swap that I designed.  It was pretty simple, but of course, all of my cards are!  Did you realize?  There is not any stamping on it!

  I simply used crumb cake card stock, Soho Subway Designer Series Paper, the Woodgrain embossing folder, Victoria Ribbon, Very Vintage Designer Buttons, Linen thread and of course the Expressions Thinlits Dies cut out of Cajun Craze cardstock (my favorite fall color!)
All of these items can be found in my online store... just click here!

Wouldn't you like to join my team?  Right now you can join for only $25!  You'll be able to attend all of these fun stamping events with me!  Click here for more details!  There's only 2 more days to join for this once in a lifetime price! Email me with any questions!

Sweater Weather Paper and the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge

I know it's been a while since I've posted, but I'm back now!!!

Tonight I decided to play along with the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge. They are celebrating their 100th sketch this week.  Congratulations!

 Here's the sketch...
And here's my take on it....

I really love this Designer Series Paper.... It's called Sweater Weather and It's in the Holiday Catalog.  (132184)... Isn't the name cozy???  I can't wait for fall!

I used the stamp set, Chalk Talk along with Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip Paper.  I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink , punched it out with the extra-large oval punch. I added some of the new Burlap Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog and tied it with linen thread.  Last, I placed 3 mini brads on the top right side.  All items used are current Stampin' Up! products and can be purchased through my online store by clicking here!
