Here is a card that I adore…and I want you to put this in your memory bank because I have a surprise for you later this week and I hope that it will be a great learning tip and experience for you to see how you can case a card to make it your own! This card of Carol’s is a great “concept/formula” card that I would use for many, many occasions ~ beautiful and oh so special!






That Georgette ~ she is the queen of using DSP! Not only is this a fun card…but I would say – who would have thought to put this together? Ok guys – here is a great way to use up that DSP that you are hoarding…on the 2nd picture – LOVE the threads of (I guess) from Burlap Ribbon – very fun and then I just had to show you how she dressed up the inside of the card! FUN card!







Can you say C L A S S I C? – Just elegant and the gold ornament is WOW over the black. You can easily mass produce this card and get lots of WOWS from the lucky recipients! The bottom is a beautiful vellum and it is the perfect accent but that ribbon….the perfect icing on the top! This is a great example of not to be afraid to use a big and bold contrast like Black and White…..for a holiday! Stunning!






When I pulled this out of the envelope, I showed John and said….this is a “Susan Card” Out of all of the metallic papers, I totally prefer working with the gold as I think (for some reason) that it does not scratch or leave marks. Isn’t this just beautiful!?!? This ornament I will be blogging about later in the week but it is so easy…just a crank through and POOF – a great ornament! Super card that will definitely get a CASE from me (and I am sure many others)





Look who is in the house….the MOUSE!!!! I am bummed (and sorry) that these pictures do not give this adorable card the justice it deserves but I think that you can see….ONE CUTE CARD! I am over the moon about this plaid paper and the green sweater on “Maurice” I can hardly wait to get home and play with this combination. Judy – please chime in and tell us about the inspiration and dimensions of this fun card.

Perhaps when I return home, I will be able to reproduce it for you with a post. I think that this is a fun card that has lots of options!






There you go and WE STILL HAVE MORE… if you have not seen your card yet – have no fear!!! I am so proud of you all and I hope that you all can give them some Stampin’ love with leaving a comment letting them know how great the cards are!

Even though I am away…I will be HITTING THAT BUTTON and ordering the stitched framelits today! I am over the moon excited and I’m thrilled that Stampin’ Up! has unveiled them! If I were you ….I would not wait to order these ~ I do NOT have a magic ball to see it they could go on back order but I am not taking the chance!

The free gift for you this month with an order of $75+ are the Seasonal Decorative Masks – I learned a great technique with them while I was away and I am excited for you to see it!





Have a great day….and until tomorrow!
