Best Christmas Color Combo!

There is something very calming to me when I see a project using Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow card stock.  I am not sure why that is, but I love going back to these shades often - especially for a Christmas card.

The Quite Curvy Bundle gave me the perfect sentiment for the inside of my card.  I know the sentiments are made to be used with matching dies, but I decided to use this one for the inside - giving it a bit of a merriment look.

Even though there is a good amount of dimension to this project, it still fits nicely in the envelope. 

The final product - a lined envelope to make it special!

Addicted to curves!


The Quite Curvy Bundle is so much fun to play with!  I love the simple and clean look on this card.  It doesn't take much to have a big punch.

The Woodlands Embossing Folder gives the added need for texture.  It reminds me of a forest on a winter day.  The great thing about the bird die in this bundle, is that the type of bird all depends on the colors you use.

This view will show you how the dimensional have given, no pun intended, dimension.  Even though the card is clean and simple, there isn't any reason why it can't have some pizazz - right?

Plaid is even for a sympathy card


The moment when you need a sympathy card is, sadly, a given and something that cannot be avoided.  I have made this style card before (CASE'd from Mary Fish @, but this one is using a somber plaid.

Woven Heirlooms has the perfect sentiment for the occasion.  

My use of the clear medium envelopes goes in waves and I am definitely riding that wave this week!  I really like the look of using this envelope.  It is super easy to use - just add a piece of card stock to write the address on and there you have it - protection for the layers of your card AND an address front.

A different take on plaid

I knew as soon as I saw a post by Gail Ellis using the fun Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set - a CASE was in store for me!
In my post on Monday, I mentioned that the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper was full of colors that allow the DSP to be used all year.  My project today proves my point! The color scheme I used is Mango Melody, Melon Mambo. and Rich Razzleberry - gorgeous!

Here is an angled shot to show you how I used dimensional to give the project a little lift.  It is still slim enough to fit into a medium envelope perfectly.

The Curvy Celebrations Bundle will be available on November 2nd - don't miss your chance to purchase this amazing set!

 What is a card without the use of an Envelope Die?

Loving the plaid!

The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper is perfect when fall is in the air! The DSP pack is chock full of beautiful colors - not just fall either!  There are colors that can be used all year 'round!

I used some dimensional to give my project a little lift.  Plus the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder adds some needed texture.

The Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set helped with the sentiment - inside and out.

I think I should have purchased two Envelope Dies since I use them with just about every card I make.  This beauties are going to wear out!

Enjoy the lovely weather!

Curvy Christmas


Loving the new Curvy Christmas Bundle that will be available to all on November 4th.  This huge bundle is so cool - it offers many different combinations.

It offers gorgeous Designer Series Paper in Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler (my favorite red!) and Shaded Spruce.  There is a Photopolymer Stamp set with Christmas sentiments/art and another Photopolymer Stamp Set with sentiments that are good for all year long.  The DSP can be used for a holiday card or any other card.  This truly is a great all around bundle~

I used the Whisper White Thick card stock as my base and then two layers using Whisper White card stock and the DSP with the curvy art and sentiment on top. 

Even though there are not many embellishments or layers, I decided to use a clear envelope as my mailing envelope.  A piece of Whisper White card stock stamped with the lines from Ornamental Envelope and a little stamped embellishment on the corners made by card 'cover'.

I am looking forward to playing with this diverse set in the weeks to come!

Did Someone Say Pearlescent Paper??

There have been many fellow Demonstrators that I have shown how to create pearlescent paper using regular card stock.   I have watched many ...
