Stocking or Reindeer??

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, I know that we did!! I made this card with my stamp group last month using the Stcking Builder Punch. Did you know it won't be back in the new catalog?? What a bummer. So if it's on your wish list, you have until Dec 31st to get it.

There were so many reindeer cards using this punch that I had to try it. This is my take on it. I used the scribbles die for the antlers and some cherry cobbler quilted ribbon for the collar. I even added some twine and a bell! I really enjoyed making this card. DSP is Letters to Santa.

Birthday Card

This is a birthday card that I made a month ago using the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes. Island Indigo is the main color and I used one of the letterpress plates but screwed up my sandwich. I also think watercolor paper is ideal for this plate. It is a simple card and I do like the effect I got even though I screwed up lol.

Array of Sunshine

Hey everybody. My stamp group made this card a few months ago. This is one of the hostess only sets and I just love it! I wanted to use the newest In Colors for this card. There is a lot of cutting on this card but the result is worth it. The flower centers are popped up on dimensionals and everything is outlined in white gel pen. Colors are Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Lucky Limeade. I am definitely going to make this card again in other colors.

Leaves and Last Chance

Hey everyone! It's been crazy busy in my house getting ready for Christmas and my next Ustamp. I wanted to post this card before the Holiday mini goes out. Remember you have until Dec 31st to get what you want from there. I fell in love with this stamp set the minute I saw it. It's called Leaves Awash and is a two step stamp set so it can be used in so many ways. I wanted to make a masculine card since they are so tough for me to create. I used some cork for a circle focal point and for the sentiment. Notice how I used the tab punch for my sentiment? I think it sort of looks like an apple but it worked for this card. Hope everyone is great and will be back soon with some more.

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top 2011 World Showcase Holiday Blog Hop.

My project is a Very Merry Scrapbook layout.I just love the Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin kits. The Christmas Lane kit from the Holiday Mini was perfect to scrap my son's photos from last years Christmas card photo shoot.

The kit goes a long way and I added a few details of my own. I added some silver glimmer paper and a punch art tree and ornaments for some added interest.

The stocking title
