into your heart

I think this stamp set is so sweet I just love the (very 1950s) image of the family around the tree placing the star on top! Such a lovely moment to think about. We here are excited about setting up our tree, decorations and lights and it's only one week til we can - though we might start early on Sunday while we have time!

These are cards I've done at workshops this month so I've used the stamp set and NEW designer Series paper and FREE ribbon you can get with this months special bundles.
Email me to get yours!
Ingredients: Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper (NEW), Soft Suede, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, brads, Dimensionals, Real Red 3/4" Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon (FREE), Mistletoe ribbon originals (FREE)

elegant birthday

Elegant Lines is such a beautiful Textured Impressions folder from the Stampin' Up! IB&C. It is so easy to make elegant cards with it. 

I put the Baja Breeze cardstock through the Big Shot using the folder sideways so I had the blank space at the bottom. The ribbon then covers over the edge of the impression and joins underneath the sentiment. I punched along the bottom edge using the Scallop Trim punch which allowed room to see a bit of the inside of the card. Using the Elegant Soiree DS paper that matches I attached a strip to the bottom edge of the inside that also has one edge punched with the Scallop trim punch. The sentiment from Perfect punches is a really simple finishing touch.

contempo ornament

Isn't this ribbon just stunning?
I tried a few different things on this card and am quite pleased with the result though it's not my usual style. The Contempo Ornament set caught my eye - it's such a beautiful design on the ornament and a stylish font for the greeting. The Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder for the Big Shot is hard to go past - it looks good on anything just about!. For a change I used Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler with Whisper White for the highlights.
