2013 Banner

Today as we took down our Christmas decorations, everything became a little bare.  I knew we needed some type of decoration for the new year so I quickly put this banner together.
How do you decorate for New Year's Eve or do you go straight to Valentine's decor?

Tree with some sparkle

This was one of my favorite cards from November's Stamp-a-Stack class!  Be sure to join me in January for our next Stamp-a-Stack.  The tree is stamped with Garden Green ink, I wiped off the bottom of the tree and the ground with a blender pen, and then I colored those parts in with a marker...ta-da...perfectly stamped tree!  The Silver Glimmer paper adds just the right effect to this card!  Order your supplies here.

Saturday was a cloudy, rainy day.  I spent most of the morning creating these tags for our church.
I have a lot of fun creating and making each tag just a little bit different.  Which tag is your favorite?

Christmas Window

Today's card uses a framelit as well as an impressions folder.  I love the idea of cutting out a window with a framelit, impress it with an impressions folder, and then lining it with DSP (ribbon...or anything else you can think of).  I layered a cardstock strip over it as well as added an accent piece with punches.  Lots of combinations with the card sketch layout.  Order your supplies here.
