The hanging ornament piece is just so pretty!  Lift open the top of the card and the outer snowflake image shows on the inside.  I love the added scoring and luscious ribbon.  The circle cut out was made with the 3" circle die.

Credits:  This is a CASED card; original by LeeAnn Greff,.  Gorgeous card Lee Ann.
I made only a couple of minor changes.

The weather here in Northwestern Ontario is definitely saying winter; with snow on the ground.  It definitely feels like Christmas card making time!

You you have a wonderful time creating your own personal greeting cards.

Perfect Blend - Stampin' Up!

I can't help buying any set related to coffee and/or tea!  I think it might have something to do with my addiction!  But I do love this set!

Papers were from Winter Frost and This and That Epic Day.    My card base and ribbon is in the new Baked Brown Sugar In Colors.  Yummy!  You'll love the ribbon.  It stretches and could also be used on your sewing projects.   I used the little heart from the Owl Builder Punch and the little flower is from the Itty Bitty Punches.  One of the new Candy Dots adorns the little flower.  They really do beat punching holes and using brads!!

It's coffee time!
Thanks for stopping by.

Everyday Occasions - Stampin' Up!

A fun new card kit is here and I've made all 20 of them!  These were surprisingly fun to make.  I couldn't stop until they were all done!  It took me about 5 hours.

Your kit comes with ALL supplies required to make 20 cards except adhesives and scissors/trimmer (Only 19 shown here; I forgot to photograph one of the Congratulations cards)

I made all the cards according to the directions provided.  You can change things up if you like!  I just wanted to show what they looked like according to Stampin' Up!'s directions.   I messed up on the stamping of the card in the upper right above, so it's not as as clear as it should be !

All pieces are die cut with some trimming involved to make pieces desired length.

Cards are of varying sizes from 3" X 3"  to 5 1/2" to 4 1/4"

Your kit includes two Stampin' Spots and a clear acrylic block.  Seven awesome stamps are included.  There is also a "Made for you  by me" stamp which is not shown.  You now have a set of stamps to use on future projects!

Envelopes are provided!
