CARD: Ridiculously Awesome!

The Magic in this Night Designer Paper has some great Halloween prints, but also has some GORGEOUS prints that can be used all year round!  The rich colors are so luxurious!  Love it!!  Here's a non Halloween example!  The inspiration came from the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday:


The stamp set, Ridiculously Awesome, has some great sentiments!  They are a bit bigger in size, and can often be used as the main image on your card!  Goes great with our designer paper!!

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies for the 9 squares--cut out of the absolutely beautiful Magic in this Night Designer Paper.  I love the colors in this paper, and there are plenty of "non Halloween" designs so it can be used well past October 31st!

CARD: Dragonfly Garden

Today's card uses a "sneak peek" of the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set!  It will be in the January-June Catalog!  It's really pretty--love the dragonflies!

The design was inspired by two challenges:  the colors are brought to you by "The Spot", and the sketch by "Try Stampin' on Tuesday"

For the strips down the right side, I used the lines found in the So Inviting Stamp Set!  Fun, huh?!!  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink, then embossed with White Embossing Powder.

CARD: Snowflake Wishes

Good morning!  This card was designed for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge!  I've been thinking lately that it would be fun to be on a design team again--I used to be on several, a few years ago!  And then, this Design Team Call came through my blog feed!!  I thought--I think I'll go for it!  I love creating cards from sketches and color challenges!  We'll see what happens!  Keep your fingers crossed for me!


This challenge was a Colour Challenge:

Love this combo--and they work perfectly for snowflakes!! :-)  A bit of a rustic Holiday card!!
