I haven't made a card in so long. I've been so busy with craft fairs that I have to now get going with my cards. I made two here for the SC359 challenge. I thought this would get me going with my holiday cards :)
I know it's hard to see from the picture, but the background is the gold metallic paper and the ribbon actually has metallic gold in it, also. I hate it when I can't capture how beautiful it looks in person. Well, you get the idea, right?
Merry & Type stamp set
Petals a Plenty embossing folder
Sizzlit Merry Details (retired)
I also took a gold pen and colored around the ornaments and the berries on the embossing folder to give it that extra gold pop. You can't have too much gold, right?
View my other card below, too. They use the same product but with different paper.
Here's the second one for SC359.
Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Jolly Holiday DSP (retired)
Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder
1/8" Old Olive ribbon
Sizzlits Merry Details (retired)

This is for the Mojo challenge. I haven't had a chance to use the owl punch that much yet. This is a great punch to add to your punch sets. For the Mojo challenges you follow a sketch and use your stamps and paper, and this is what I created.

I've used the sketch from Splitcoast to complete this card. It's a weekly sketch that is put out for you to follow. Here's my take on their design. Hope you like it!
This card uses the sketch from Mojo Monday. It's been such a cold rainy day today that I was in the mood for some fallish colors.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler

This card I did for the challenge at Splitcoast, SC289. I thought I would use this in our club for August, too. We'll be learning the watercooring technique with this card.
I needed a card for a retirement coming up, but you could put anything you'd like on it.
I used the Sailor's knot or the Carrick Bend knot with the Hemp Twine. You can look at the US Powerboating website to view a video of how to do it. For some reason it wouldn't let me copy the shortcut for you.
Just don't pull it totally tight. You want to be able to see the Figure 8 in the knot (if that makes sense)
Here's the inside of my card. Sorry so blurry. It says 'Life is uncharted territory. It revelas its story one moment at a time. Leo F. Buscaglia'
I was asked to do a few bridal shower and wedding cards. Here's two of the shower cards below. I used the retired "For the Bride" stamp set. Also retired is the Appricot Appeal paper on the Basic Gray card and the Bella Bleu DSP is also retierd on the Vanilla paper card.
The top card is using the layout for MOJO Monday 146. Every Monday there's a new layout to try. I love doing these. I thought this card fit beautifully with this layout.
Thanks for stopping by.

This is for SC277 challenge on Splitcoast. This site is great to get your ideas from. I like to play along in the challenges for inspiration. Why not give it a try.
This is for MOJO133. This card came out totally different from what I started with. I didn't even start off with this paper pack, but I did know I could do something with this Mojo layout. I thought this was a great layout.
