Midnight Crop This Friday!

What are you doing this Friday night? Come on by to my Midnight Crop (7:30 - 11:30 pm) and get started (or finished!) on those Christmas cards or holiday projects. You can use my stamps, punches and non-consumables, or even make up a class that you missed. Registration is only $5; RSVP required.

I made the card above using "Dasher," one of the most popular stamps from the catalogue this year, not to mention a great deal at only $10.95. The greeting is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes." I added some white dots with my Signo gel pen to echo the Real Red polka dot ribbon.

Thanks for looking!

Peace and Joy

I received this lovely card in a swap from Tina Jeng, a fellow demo in the fabulous group of demonstrators I belong to. Tina used "Delightful Decorations" with the coordinating ornament punch for the red ornament Both are from the Holiday Mini; if you've had your eye on something from the Mini, remember, it'll only be around until January 4! The greeting, which is embossed with Iridescent Ice, is from "Four the Holidays."

Remember to RSVP for my upcoming Stamp-A-Stack on Thursday, Dec. 10 from 7 - 10 pm. We'll be making 12 cards, 3 each of designs, with matching stamped envelopes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Petals-A-Plenty Christmas Tree

I cased this card from the fabulously creative Jackie Topa. I used the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and removed a stone from a rhinestone brad for the centre of the star. To get the embossing only in the area of the tree, I followed Jackie's technique of cutting a piece of chipboard in the shape of a tree and placing it under the embossing folder when I ran it through the Big Shot.

Mojo Monday 111 and PPA15

I love this week's Mojo Monday sketch and just had to give it a go. I used the super cute penguin from the "Cold and Cuddly" set from the Holiday Mini Catalogue for this card. The snowflakes and scallop circle image are from "Punch Pals". The Heart to Heart punch came in handy for the small hearts.

The inspiration for the colours of this card came from Pals Paper Arts Colour Challenge this week; I was really drawn to this interesting, somewhat unconventional colour combo that is wintry and yet warm at the same time.

Thanks for stopping by!

In the Pink - PPA 14

The Pals Paper Arts Design Team announced a special edition of their weekly challenge; this week the theme is "In the Pink" for breast cancer awareness. What a great way to bring awareness to this very important cause!

I was asked by my colleague to make a wedding shower card for her younger sister, whose wedding colours are chocolate brown and pink. I love this colour combo; they happened to be my wedding colours, too. This is the card I came up with. I inked up my Upsy Daisy stamp in Pretty in Pink and used my Chocolate Chip marker to colour the stems. I used my Two-Way Glue Pen and dusted the daisies with Dazzling Diamonds for some instant sparkle. The "for your shower" greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the inside greeting is from a retired hostess set. I hope she likes it!
