Another Very Merry Christmas with Avonlea

Ok, I couldn't resist making another card with the October Stamp of the Month set! This is from a card sketch in our new Make It From The Heart How To Book (9035 $7.95). This great new publication has 16 two page layout patterns, two single page layout patterns and twelve different card patterns! Love it! I used the Avonlea paper packet and some of our pretty little pearl embellishments! Happy Stamping! Sandee

October SOTM Very Merry Christmas and Avonlea

 Just had to share a couple cards I made with the October Stamp of the Month! If you are like me it is hard to think about Christmas just yet! The days are still warm and nice and I am getting everybody ready for Halloween and trick or treating! I hate to be the one to say but Christmas is a mere 63 days away!!

I used our beautiful Avonlea paper packet ( $9.95 X7155B) to create two quick and easy cards! This paper has slate grey, minty green, teal and blue colors! It isn't traditional  Christmas paper, but I think it looks very elegant with the featured stamp set! I added a bit of our Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon ( Z1802 $4.95 /5 yds.) and some Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1313 $2.75)
Our featured SOTM, Vrey Merry Christmas (S1210A) is so adorable and versatile for all of the winter Holidays! You can get yours for $17.95 or only $5.00 with an combined catalog purchase of $50! Happy Stamping! Sandee

Fall Halloween Card with CTMH Treat Cups

Did I mention that I love Fall! Ok !Well I love Fall! Pumkin muffins, Pumkin Lattes, Homemade Apple Butter, and Candy Corn are some of my favorite treats!
 My Upline and Friend, Joann Van Wormer made these adorable Fall cards using our treat cups (Z1778 $3.95), Moonlight paper packet (X7161B $9.95), Burlap Ribbon ( Z1760 7.95 /5yds) and our scalloped punch or the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. She made two cards, two different ways with both sides of the paper! I love how she made the scalloped circles look like a pumpkin! So cute Joann! Thank you for sharing one with me!

 Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite treat is for Fall!
Happy Stamping! Sandee

My Creations Star CTMH Pear and Partridge

A new item in the Close To My Heart catalog this season is the My Creations Star (Z1797 $8.95). This white chipboard star is just ready to be decorated for any occasion. I used our new Pear and Partridge Paper Packet( X7162B $9.95) and embellishment collection! It came together rather quickly once I decided what I was going to cover it with. There is a template available to trace or you can use wax paper to make your own. I covered each of the points in paper, distressed the edges with our Olive ink and added my embellishments. I used the zip strip from the papers edge to cover in between each point, our beautiful and easy to apply Festive Red Velvet rub ons (Z1743 $4.95), red bling and some of the chipboard Dimensional Elements In Color Holiday (Z1772 $5.95.
Happy Stamping! Sandee
