Treat punch art card

I am not a Halloween fan but this is a fun card that I made for a swap.  If I have already posted it please forgive me.  (-:

I later mounted the Tangerine Tango cs onto a white base.  The So Saffron ribbon and the candy dot (black) add texture to the card as does the layering of shapes (Big Shot XL oval accents and Apothecary Accents) with embossing folders (chevron and polka dots).  I used the pennant punch to make the candy corn.
Happy stamping!

Best of 25 Years sets


Best of 25 Years Stamps

As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!

Some things to remember:
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month, all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, we're including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

Special Season Stamp Set

This card is a wink at a tri-fold card.  I thought that the mosaic pattern almost looked like ornaments.

This card has a white base with a white embossed layer.  I toyed with the idea of changing to a green color for ink but really loved the Cherry Cobbler.

This card was fast and easy.  The Crumb Cake base sets off the Cherry Cobbler embossed (Houndstooth) cs.  I colored a few ornaments with a metallic marker and other ornaments with a Cherry Cobbler.  I am not sure what color to pick.  LOL!

This is similar to a card posted yesterday.  I used metallic colors for the lines.
I had hoped to post earlier today but time got away from me!  Grandma called and needed help and so we ran over there.  Love visiting Grandma!

Happy stamping!

Truly Grateful

This set is fun and versatile!  I had fun stamping with this set last month.  I will start with the easiest card and work my way up.

This is super easy.  I just stamped on white and layered onto a white base.  I used the same Soft Suede color on the sheaf of wheat and the line.  I believe that I used a Garden Green marker (and a ruler) on the other line. 

I love the natural trim!  It is so rustic and perfect for this card.  I sponged through a mat for the background of the sheaf.  This is not my favorite card but it is a fun technique.

I love this card but the first simple one is close in the running.  Isn't that funny?  Coastal Cabana, Sahara Sand, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chip are the colors used in this fun card.  Once again...that natural trim!  I frayed the edges for additional texture on the ribbon and also used the wood grain embossing folder.  I used another folder behind the sheaf but the name escapes me...every time!  It is a favorite but I always forget the name.  I think that I lost brain cells to mono.  LOL!

Happy stamping!
