Did you realize Stampin' Up! has lovely stencils?? This is the Vintage Ornaments Stencil. I used a Stampin' Sponge and classic ink pads. The trick is to leave a "lightly colored spot" as a highlight. Very easy! Try our stencils and you'll love them!
I created this card in loving memory of my dear mother-in-law who passed away yesterday at 90. Doris L. Ferb was a kind, loving lady. She loved RED. She read the newspaper everyday. So there was my inspiration.
I used the Fun Flowers Die to create this large Real Red flower as the focal point.
TRY this sweet little scrunched Vintage flower. Punch a cardstock circle for the base. Wad up about 10" of Seam Binding Ribbon to wrinkle it. Apply a generous amount of Tombow Liquid Glue onto the punched circle. Using a pointed tool, like your stylus, press the wrinkled ribbon in a circle around the cardstock. When you are satisfied with the look, cut off the excess and embellish the center.
This simple card would be great for any man. The Well Woren Designer Series Paper sets a masculine tone. I stamped directly onto the Designer Paper with the foorprints and script images in the Daring Adventure Stamp Set.
The Peekaboo Frames Die was designed for an Advent Calendar...however, we always find MORE uses. Here the Die creates a little window for a greeting. Let's peek inside...
and there is a greeting from Occasions Alphabet! The gorgeous designer papers are Mocha Morning...and this specific design is flocked.
These two festive stockings made with the Holiday Stocking Die are going overseas to our little grand-nephews. Because of their longggg travels, I decorated them with their names cut from Naturally Serif Die instead of a thick embellishment. The boys can hang them on the Christmas tree.
I used Letters to Santa Designer Series Papers. These stockings open for a holiday greeting and fit into a 5X7 envelope. Off to the Post Office.
This simple Holiday card was a hit at my recent Holiday Stamp-A-Stack. The Designer Papers are Mocha Morning - rich neutrals and sooo easy to use! DASHER is a single stamp. Look what I created with the left overs...
I used the SAME layout and a different stamp set called HAVE A SEAT.
Here I used Delicate Doilies Stamp Set. These are a great example of just plugging in a different image to the SAME layout. Try it yourself!! Get your Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper HERE! You will love it!

This card by Tami Waddell of CA was my inspiration for Winter White Week. Tami used the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine for the textured background and wreath texture. The greeting from Christmas Lodge stamp set, was sponged with Shimmer Paint and then stamped. Lovely card and a great inspiration for me! Thanks Tami!
I hope you are enjoying Winter White Week?! I started with Northern Flurry Emossing Folder for this background, then lightly sponged it with PLATINUM Shimmer Paint. This Winter Post skating couple have a vintage feel so I embellished with a lovely Vintage Brad.
Did you notice the embellishments?? I used three different styles together: a Mini Jingle Bell, a Pearl, and a Glimmer Brad. ALL products are by Stampin' Up! and can be ordered at the SHOP link on the right.
This week I'm featuring Winter White Cards with lots of sparkle! I die cut the J-O-Y with Serif Essentials Alphabet and my indispensable Big Shot. The sassy reindeer is from Winter Post and heat embossed in Silver. I topped it off with a Very Vanilla Velvet bow. Using lots of texture keeps the white on white from boredom. Try it!
I love to create special birthday cards for special people in my life. I used the cool new tool, Simply Scored to make this pleated Medallion focal point with Flirtatious Specialty Paper.
It makes a big splash when mounted on Silver Glimmer Paper! Wouldn't this card make you feel special?
NEXT WEEK IS MY "WINTER WHITE WEEK" OF HOLIDAY CREATIONS - DON'T MISS IT!!

This lovely Journal was a gift from my friend and fellow demonstrator, Tami Waddell. She created it with Stampin' Up!'s MY DIGITAL STUDIO.
The journal has a hard cover, lined pages, and ribbon bookmark.
Real Red and Chocolate Chip are a great Holiday color combo! This card features the Winter Post stamp set and the Red Glimmer Paper punched with the Snowflake Punch. I stamped the reindeer with Chocolate Chip ink right onto the First Edition Specialty Paper.
Gift Certificates are available for the Holidays and I include a hand-stamped card.
Here is another idea for the versatile Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set of 24. One image can be Birthday OR Christmas...just change the designer papers!
I started with a 4" square of Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper, fold all corners to the center, then fold the corners back out...simple!
This is Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty Paper. Book an event with me and your guests can create this layout!!

Elegant reindeer from the Winter Post Stamp Set prance across Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper. I love the classic look of neutrals! The Scallop Punched edge is created with Brushed Gold Cardstock. The elegant greeting is Hand-Penned Holidays. Did you notice I used the same reindeer image in my blog header made with MY DIGITALLY STUDIO?
Look at the fine details of the Christmas Lodge Stamp Set! The colors I used are Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.
I added a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the roof so the snow sparkles. Sorry it doesn't show better in the photo. ORDER YOUR HOLIDAY GIFT CERTIFICATES SOON!
Winter Post stamp set has a lovely vintage flavor. I added the subtle background by using Versamark ink which gives a tone on tone effect so it doesn't overpower the focal point. Christmas is right around the corner...are you ready?
I chose Hello Doily with Elegant Eggplant ink on Elegant Eggplant cardstock as a background. Then a simple flower from Love & Sympathy stamp set layered onto Brushed Gold Cardstock. The result is simple and elegant. Come back tomorrow!
My most frequent blog viewer and friend, Rosy from Loves Park, IL sent me this fancy fold idea - thanks, Rosy! I used the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set of 24 for this sweet layout. Images & Greeting are heat embossed with Stampin' Up!'s silver embossing powder for a nice shine.
This is a quick, classy card. The base is Crumb Cake with Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper. I add black satin ribbon and Basics Brads. The flower is from Love & Sympathy stamp set, but you can use any greeting to change the occasion.
