I used the Alpine Adventure bundle of stamps and dies. I love the detail in these products. There are some terrific images of sleds, skis, snow shoes and little accents of holly, a wreath and jingle bells and bows to go with them. There are even three fun greetings! This bundle has everything you need for your Christmas cards.

Christmas Prep - Round 1

Hello and welcome! I'm back today to share some holiday projects with you. I decided this year to start my prep early. My plan is to use a mix of holiday sets from the main catalog and newer sets from the holiday catalog to create cards, tags and other holiday items for this season. I usually make about 80 of one style of card, but after the designing is done it's less fun to finish them up assembly line style. So, this year, I'm going to make 9-10 different designs and make about 10 cards of each one! I always include a letter in them as well, so they will all be the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" size to hold the letter.

More Color Inspiration

Hello everyone! I'm back with another fall themed project, just in time as we just had some early snow this week! I'm not quite ready for that, are you?

I decided to make another card with the beautiful color combo from the last Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I started by painting a watercolor panel with some watered down Pacific Point ink, and then splattering the piece with some darker mix of the same color. Next, I cut a stitched circle from one of the Wood Textures papers and then stamped the greeting on Whisper White, cutting it into another stitched circle.

Fancy Friday - True Gentlemen Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). This challenge is inspired by the True Gentleman Suite on page 44-45 in the Occasions Catalog. We could use the suite of products, the color combo or just be inspired by the style while focusing on masculine projects.
