Away Dasher!!

Hi Everyone! I just love this new Dasher stamp that Stampin Up now has. It's so easy to work with and goes with everything Christmas! This particular card is done in Stampin Up's Bravo Burgandy, Gold and Very Vanilla Cardstock.

I'm a little pressed for time at the moment, I'm in the middle of tons of Christmas card orders right at the moment, so I'm gonna run. They are not going very quickly when I have to break frquently due to my health (sigh)but I'm pluggin along the best that I can, and loving it!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you like my version of "Dasher"!
Please feel free to leave a comment, I love reading them! Take care!

Season of Joy

Hi All!! I've been busy with some card orders, but I wanted to post a card I did 2 weeks ago and forgot to post. I hope you're all having a good weekend. I LOVE weekends! DH doesn't work & I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn with him! YAY!! LOL I digress...back to stampin...

This time I dug out the Stampin Up! stamp set, Season of Joy. This was a very, very simple card. I think you'll like it, it can be done relatively quickly. All products are by Stampin Up! I started with a card base of Old Olive cardstock, followed with a layer of Chocolate Chip c/s. My next layer is a left over green printed paper from the Cast a Spell Designer Series Paper. (I love that they are double sided and so versatile!) I cut a strip of chocolate chip c/s and place it horizontily across the middle of the card. I used my White Gel Pen to add white lines on it. Next, I added a piece of last year's beautiful chocolate chip satin ribbon. I just loved that ribbon and was delighted that I had a little left!!
I added a square of whisper white c/s that I pierced along the outside edge of it.
Next I added a square of chocolate chip c/s. Lastly I stamped the focal point of the card on whisper white. The inks and markers I used were red, chocolate chip and old olive. On the close up I think you can see that I cut out and pop-dotted the three poinsettia's, the snowflake and the "and" sign. You can't see it, but I added glitter, Irridescent Ice, to the tree, snowflake and the centers of the flowers.

Thank you so much for coming to my BLOG and I do hope I've inspired you. Please take a few minutes and leave a comment if you like, I love hearing from you all.

And just to make you smile, I've added a couple pictures of my sweet Abbi girl taking a snooze. It was quite cool in the afternoon and she was shivering, so I put her sweater on her. Half an hour later here she is....just a snoozin and toasty warm!!! Enjoy!

I hope the rest of your weekend is good and I hope you have some time to yourself and that you get to stamp. Take care!!

Happy stampin,

It's Snowing Medallions!!

Hi my friends! I hope you're all doing really well and getting good n' inky!! hehe
I got my seasonal flu shot today and I'm so happy that I did! I really can't afford to get sick!! I'm not able to get the H1N1 shot yet as they don't have enough right now. If I didn't have the COPD I don't think I'd even get it, but I sure don't want
to get pneumonia or worse, so I want that shot!!! LOL Ok OK, I'll stop talking and get back to the card!!! :)

Needless to say I used Stampin Up's Medallion stamp and the small snowflake from Season of Joy. I think it's so versatile,you can really do many things with it. All products I used on this are Stampin Up. The cardstock I used was whisper white, bordering blue, and night of navy with bordering blue and night of navy inks. I used white craft ink for the medallion and embossed with clear embossing powder. On the white card stock I sponged with light & heavy ink application. I did stamp tiny, tiny snowflakes, but I honestly can't remember what set it is from. I used a small night of navy brad.

I hope you are inspired to make some snowflake medallions of your own! Have a great stampin' weekend. Thanks for coming by and visiting a while! Take care!

Happy stampin,
