The Sentiment if from the CTMH "Best Christmas" stamp set.

Colors used are Glacier and Lagoon.  Teal Glitter paper and Teal Shimmer Trim was used behind polar bear.


Here is the actual sketch.

Thanksgiving Wreath


Happy Fall Y'all. Well, it sure feels like fall here today anyway and I'm into fall card creativity.

The card today is the first of my three Club cards that we're making this month. I used the Thanksgiving Wreath stamp set, which is a hostess only stamp set. Along with that I used the Pathfinder Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go stamp set and paper.

The card for my club will actually say: "Happy Thanksgiving". But I needed a Thank You card. I just took a picture of the wrong card.

My colors of inks are Autumn Terracotta, Barn Red, Olive, and New England Ivy. 

Stop by on Wednesday morning an see the 2nd of the three club cards and go for a blog hop Along with the Joyful Stars.

What a Hoot

I thought I scheduled these cards to post before leaving for vacation, but I guess I didn't.
These are two cards my club made for the August card class. They are both made using the August Stamp of the Month called What a Hoot.
The Birthday card uses the Pathfinder Paper pack for the paper piecing. 


The Halloween card uses the Scaredy Cat Paper Pack. Both cards use the NEW ShinHan Alcohol markers for coloring. And both cards used paper piecing.

Remarkable Wreath Fall



Here is the third card my club made for July. I wanted to base my July cards on stamps that are retiring at the end of the month.  Along with the retiring stamp set, I gave a sneak peak to the NEW Path Finding Paper Pack that will be available on August 1st.

The embossing folder I used for the background is the beautiful 5x7 Close to my Heart embossing folder called Damask. I then swiped the Autumn Terracotta Ink Pad right over the raised area of the embossing. 

The wreath was stamped with chocolate, then the leaves were inked with Autumn Terracotta and rolled in Olive.

Remarkable Wreath Gift Card Holder



Only two more weeks left to order form the Spring/Summer Close to my Heart Idea Book. I chose one of the retiring stamp sets, called Remarkable Wreaths for my club cards this month. Wanted my customers to seer the beauty of this stamp set and get it before it's gone forever.

I used the NEW Yuletide Carol Christmas paper that will be available on August 1st.  For the pine branch in the upper left corner and also for the inside of the card, along with the Peach on Earth inside, I used the stamp set from the NEW Yuletide Carol Workshop on the Go. The bottom was left blank for your personal message.

My cards today focus on the retiring set Words of Comfort. I really wish CTMH wouldn't retire sentiment stamps so often. I think this is a fabulous set. It can be used for so many occasions. The card above I used for a friend who is going though a really hard time with the illness of her husband.

The card below is basically the same card but the sentiment is for a Sympathy card. Below that is how I used it for the inside of a graduation card. The Love & Hugs went perfect before our signatures. Words of Comfort is retiring the end of this month, so don't wait too long to get it.

In addition to that stamp set, I also used the Pick A Posey stamp set. This is such a beautiful set. My colors are Smoothie and Olive.

The background was made with the exclusive Quatrefoil Embossing Folder
