Can you say A D O R A B L E!?!?!? When I opened this card – the BIGGEST smile was on my face. I hope that Karen will share with us the scoop on making “Mr. Snowman” This embossing folder on this color is just stunning. I just had to share with you how Karen did the inside of her card, just adorable! The holly is an embellishment and they perfect accent.

This is a card that can be adapted to so many different cards/occasions etc. This is one that I would sketch off because it is a keeper layout! Ramsey showed us how something so simple can be both effective and classic. Just love this and this ribbon works wonderful in making a card as it lays very flat! On the 2nd picture you can see that she embossed the trees in white…..great job!

I adore how Joy took a framelit that is not specific to the Holiday but made it rock! WAY TO THINK OUT OF THE BOX! I hope that this encourages you to look at what you have and just “work with it” ~ another thing I love (and something that I need to do more often is) not make the focal part so symmetrical….this is stunning as the body of the card is to the right!

Here comes a Christmas Classic that would be a great card to make in the masses. I say that because it is layers that can be done ahead of time and then GO FOR THE STAMPING! The touches of shine of glitter is so special but the gold star hanging down…..soooooo  special. Hopefully in the 2nd picture you can see the bling!!!

Not talking about out of the box and super FUN.…I would have never thought about doing this….the GOLD is stunning but the way that the diecut  makes a statement is….just WOW! Very, very cleaver! The inside…..my heart did the pitter patter again, I just love word sentiments but when it is in gold….even better!

How about this FUN and FESTIVE card made my Karen. She is always so darn creative in how she uses DSP and shapes. I love the way that the DSP on the top half of the card is larger, it created a great interest to the eye and then the linen thread – fun touch. Her added dots around the circle makes my heart pitter patter….a stamper after my own heart!

I know that you have heard me say this a bunch, but here you go again, I wish that you could see this in person as it is just OVER THE TOP stunning. The picture just doesn’t do it justice! I am so glad that the Vintage Leaves are still around, what a classic! Janice was inspired from a card on Pinterest but this is what I adore….we can see something that we love and admire, and then re-create to to make it our own! The colors are screaming the fall season!
