Thanksgiving Card with My Digital Studio

This month at our club classes I wanted to do a Thanksgiving Card.  I had plenty of the Autumn Spice Specialty Paper, but I didn’t have the Day of Gratitude Stamp Set.  I’ve been trying to be “good” and not order EVERYTHING I want!  Aren’t you surprised? However, I did purchase the Autumn Spice Digital Kit and it came to the rescue in a BIG WAY!  Here’s a look at it… Look at everything that…

“Wish Big” Birthday Card

  Need a birthday card?  Need to find a good place for some scraps of paper?  How about a big birthday wish using some of your favorite Designer Series Paper?  I found this idea while looking at some blogs on Saturday, and it really caught my attention.  And we all know that I have tons of paper scraps…. My strips are about 3/4″  wide and they come from the Sweet and Sour Specialty Paper pack. …

Thanks for your kindness…

While working on some other projects for Club next week, I managed to make a few other cards “just for fun”.  I made a few cards using the new “With Gratitude” Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is SO GORGEOUS that you barely need to stamp!  The paper does all the work for you….and the colors are so, so FALL.  Just perfect for FALL — and I love the way FALL makes me feel when…

Because I Care…

Worth today to meet my mom and go to an appointment with her.  I’m a little pressed for time (are you surprised?) so I wanted to show you a few cards that I received as swaps during convention.  They are all made using the stamp set “Because I Care” — a Level 1 Hostess Set.  I think you will enjoy seeing 3 very different cards using the same stamp set.  Have…

Fantastic Weekend!

We had wonderful weekend around here!  It started out with a very important High School football game……..important to win, and win we did!!!  We won by only 1 point — the final score was 14-13.  We led the first half 14-0, but they gained on us, and the game went down to the very last play!  Talk about nervous!  And at the same time, the Texas Rangers were making history by winning the ACLS, and…

Club Class Preview

Tonight and tomorrow night are my monthly club classes.  I can’t wait to see my ladies and have some fun!  This card is CASED from a card that was on the display boards at our Stampin’ Up! convention last summer.  I changed it ever so slightly to accomodate my color scheme.   The 2 stamp images are both individual stamps from the very front of our catalog.  I am so thankful that SU started selling some…
