Isn't this a pretty card?? I'm very fond of it, if I do say so myself. :D This is the Stampin' Around standard wheel SOFT HOLLY, rolled in Garden Green. The berries are colored with a Real Red Stampin' Write marker. That's naturals white card stock, mounted onto Garden Green, and the card is Real Red. The center is embossed in gold; it's a stamp from the Level 1 Hostess Set PUNCHES THREE, and punched out with the new scallop square punch. (Have I mentioned I love our punches??? :D) The inside has a verse from MANY MERRY MESSAGES.
What are YOU stamping?????????????????

This is one of the cards from this month's Advanced Techniques Class. This is snakeskin, something I learned from Technique Junkies. It's a GREAT background! I don't know how well you can see it, but there are lines on the background that make it look like snakeskin or lizard skin. The background ink colors are Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue, and Night of Navy. The stamp set is WINDS OF GRACE.
What are YOU stamping? I'd love to hear from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't this BEAUTIFUL???? It's made with the stamp set from the COUNTRY LIVING HOLDAY COLLECTION stamp set; this collection is a GREAT buy!!!! Email me to find out more - or go to MY WEBSITE, hit the SHOP NOW button, and click on SPECIALS!
ANYWAY. We used white Stazon ink to stamp the snowflakes on the blue vase - which I found at BIG LOTS for $2!!! The ribbon and cording around the neck are also from the HOLIDAY COLLECTION. The big snowflake, we stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder, then punched out with the circle scallop punch. Simple, fast, EASY, and very inexpensive!

We made these cute napkin rings completely out of card stock. The turkeys are made just with the scallop circle punch and free-handing the waddles and beaks. I just love them - they're so cute! :D Colors are kind of off - I forgot to change the white balance on my camera. The colors are Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby Red.

Colors are Not Quite Navy, Whisper White. Of course, I used the ticket corner punch; the snowflakes are some Sizzlets dies cut with my Big Shot, and there's a crystal from the inside of a clear rhinestone brad from a Pretties Kit adhered to the center of each snowflake with our Tombow Multi Adhesive.
This layout was done with lots of punches and the Coluzzle! The colors are Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, and Elegant Eggplant. We used the Coluzzle to cut out the photo mats. The edges (both sides, but you can't see the left-hand edge. Dumb scanner!) were done with the scallop edge punch. The small ovals are oval punches. We used three different sized handheld punches to create the border strips. It was simple and fun!
OK, got to run again - miles to go before I'm done! :D Have a WONDERFUL day - and please, take the time to stamp SOMEthing - I'm feeling like I'm doing it all by myself! :D
