Taking a break!

I am taking a break from blogging!  Not Stampin' Up!, just blogging. I am just not able to do everything I wish I could.  Instead I will be focusing my efforts on sharing my projects on social media, specifically Facebook.  You can follow me there at or join my VIP group at

Happy Stampin' !

ICS Blog Hop: #Elfie

Welcome to this month's Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  This month we were given the challenge to create a monochromatic card - just one color plus either white or vanilla.  With the full range of colors offered from Stampin' Up! makes it difficult to pick just one!  So I decided to make two cards:

There are so many signs of the upcoming holiday - Hallmark Christmas movies, Christmas music on the radio, and even a few snowflakes in the sky.  So this cute little elf jumped out at me as the perfect image for todays card.  Isn't he adorable?

I made two versions of the same card.  One version was made in Call Me Clover (which, in my opinion, is the perfect Christmas green!) and one in Real Red.  I stamped the elf and then colors portions with the coordinating Stampin' Blends Combo.

The background of each card was embossed with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder.  The stitch details on this embossing folder are a great complement for the stocking.  The sentiment on the cards were stamped and then punched with the Classic Label Punch.

PPP Blog Hop: Winter Woods

Welcome to the October Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who are fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity! 

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can either follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild.  On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this month's Paper Pumpkin kit: Winter Woods.

This month's kit makes 10 beautiful Christmas cards. They are gorgeous just the way they are, but I couldn't help but play a little bit to make it my own. I used quite a few additional Stampin' Up! products to design my card. Here is what I made:

I first created a frame for my card using the Heirloom Dies and 3D Embossing Folders.  I cut the trees apart to move them closer together so they would fit behind the frame.  I the cut an oval from the front of the card base included in the kit to fit behind the oval frame.

I knew right away that I wanted to add a moose to this card.  He is punched with the Moose Punch from the Holiday Catalog. The bird is one of the embellishments from the kit.

I tried taking pictures of this card from several angles to show the beautiful sparkle that is on the trees!

The oval focal piece was mounted on a piece of Pool Party cardstock that was centered on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and then adhered to a Silver Foil-Edged Card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I'm so glad you you were here.  Be sure to continue on the hop to Tricia's blog.  She always has the greatest ideas!

Happy Stampin'!
