Falling for Fall!

Wow!  Just look outside and enjoy Mother Nature's beautiful show!  The trees are gorgeous aren't they?  I made this card at Peg Hruska's house.  She had some stampers over to chat, stamp, and have fun and we sure did!

The leaves are easy to cut with the Autumn Accents Die.  Peg put the paper through some embossing folders first and then cut the leaves with the Big Shot.  I layered them on some card stock and burlap and was done in a flash!  Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Popcorn & Movie Card

Here's a cute card that I am sending to a friend along with a pack of popcorn and one of her favorite movies on DVD.  For the popcorn buckets I used the Create a Cupcake Stamp Set and Cupcake Builder Punch.  I used Black and White card stock to create the movie strip and punched the "popcorn" with the Trio Flower Punch that is available in the Clearance Rack right now!  The Stampin' Up Designer paper in the backround is discontinued but you could use the yellow printed paper that I punched the popcorn with & that is from the Summer Smooches Paper.  Everything is layered on Cherry Cobbler Card Stock

Thanks for looking and ordering the products for this card is easy and are listed below:
Stamps: Create A Cupcake #121982, Itty Bitty Banners #126257,

Paper: Whisper White Card Stock#100730, Cherry Cobbler#119685, Basic Black#121045

Happy Birthday Card!

This card was inspired by Mary Fish.  She is a member of Stampin' Up's creative team of stampers and I can see why! 

Simple yet elegant and the card can has many uses.  Just change the stamp to Happy Retirement, Sincere Sympathy, Friend to Friend, Get Well, and on and on!  The Stamp Set, Reason to Smile, will give you many options for cards.  Great card if you have scraps of paper too! 

I used some left over Pear Pizazz Paper and the Butterfly brads were from Sale a Bration!  I'm a firm believer of using what you have on hand in these tough economic times. 

Thanks for looking and items used are below.  Contact me to order or order online now!

Chocolate Chip #102128
Very Vanilla #101650

Ann from the Stampin' Schach created this card for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge and I loved it so much I just had to CASE it. 

I'm loving the pearl accents and have started to use more pearls in my cards.  I stamped the flowers from one of my favorite sets, Field Flowers, with Cajun Craze Ink on the yellow patterned paper from the Summer Smooches set.  Cut out them out and after stamping the stem in Old Olive, applied them with dimensionals to make the "pop".  The Eyelet Border stamp is no longer available to purchase but it you have it, use it!  You could also use the Delicate Design Embossing Folder #127023and then cut along the border as the original card featured.  Very easy card to create and use for many occasions!

Happy Monday and Stamp on!
