I LOVE this stamp set!

I don't usually upload photos of projects I make using retired product, but I LOVE this stamp set. It's called Snowburst, and I bought it from a fellow demonstrator. I have made several different cards using this set, but this is one of my favourites. It's a 6x6 card and inside there is a Stampin'Up! gift certificate (I used the slit punch to hold the GC in). It is for a customer, from her mom. And of course, I added a bit of bling!
Have a great weekend!

Christmas cards for my mom

These are just 2 designs I made for my mom for her cards this year. The first card is stamped with Cherry Cobbler and the sentiment is embossed with gold. The inside is also embossed.
The second card uses the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. I also added bling on the poinsettia images.
Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas swap card

What is a swap? It is when a group of people make a set amount of cards (in this case I made 30 of the above) and swap them with each other. I will get my card back, plus 29 different ones from 29 different people. There is a swap hostess that collects all the cards from everyone and repackages them so we all get 30 different cards. It's a great way to get new ideas.
My card uses Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride as the colour combo and the stamp set Northern Hearts. The snowflakes are matched by the Northern Flakes embossing folder.
Thanks for stopping by!

The leaves are from Autumn Days (page 118).
The colours are: Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, and Garden Green.
Thanks for looking!

This was last week's Mojo Monday sketch. I am just a little behind! LOL! I spent the weekend at my friend's cottage creating cards for the Autism Awareness Gala in Montreal and this was one of them.
The paper is last year's Copttage Wall which I still love and have a full pack of. The colours are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Orchard Opulance.
The butterfly is from Great Friend.
