For All Things

Hi Everyone,  For All Things is the name of one of the new stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog.  It was released yesterday.  Hopefully you have had a chance to browse on line here or on my website.  Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  The only part I dislike is what is coming after Autumn.  The colors are my favorite family of colors.  Most of my wardrobe is comprised of warm, autumn colors.


This is a very simple card but I think it says it all.  The DSP is from the Color Me Autumn collection.  What's great about Stampin'Up's! paper is it is two sided but coordinates so well with the flip side and the base cardstock which in this case is Hello Honey.


The images used here are from the stamp set For All Things.  It is a watercolored look without actually watercoloring.  That striped border is new fall collection washi tape.  The DSP is another of the Color Me Autumn collection. 

Enjoy your weekend and stop back Monday for more from the NEW Holiday Catalog.

The Stars will come out tomorrow

I know it's the sun will come out tomorrow but TOMORROW is the unveiling of the Holiday Stampin'Up! catalog.  So not only will the stars be out, but the trees and Santas and wreaths and all the other good things that come with the holiday season will too.  Can't wait to post some awesome fall designs.

Today's card once again has Park Lane DSP with a Hello Honey strip topped by a Pear Pizzazz banner embossed with one of the retired embossing folders.  I used the Blendabilities Daffodil Delite set to color the flower from Bloom With Hope. I fussy cut the flower and used dimensionals to give it a little pop. 002

Don't forget to stop back tomorrow or visit my website to browse the new catalog.  Remember you can place your order right here 24/7.

Thanks for looking.

Park Lane Designer Series Paper

Good morning everyone.  I hope you had a pleasant weekend.  My daughter and her husband are on vacation in NY.  She has two mini doxies and an orange cat named Julius.  They are visiting with our two dogs and three cats.  Ok, so it's a small zoo.  Dave and I both are animal lovers so it's not that we mind, it just keeps us busy.  I did find time to use the new DSP Park Lane to create this card. 001

I love the rich color of the Blackberry Bliss paper matched with Pear Pizzazz.  I white embossed the Blended Bloom flower on the corner and added the greeting onto the small oval punched Whisper White CS. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking.

Finally Friday

Have you ever had one of those weeks where nothing seems to go as planned.  Well I'm glad it's Friday and this week is almost over because that's the way my week has been.  My smart phone decided to be stupid and quit working. had to get that replaced and that meant downloading my apps and ringtones and all that other stuff you come to rely on.

I won't tell you how many years ago but more than 20 and less than 50 years ago I was at this very time in labor with my first born.  So I want to wish my son, Darrick, a very happy birthday.  He was a whopping 9lbs 3 oz.   I guess when I look back on that this week doesn't seem so bad !

So I finally had time to play a little and hope you enjoy this card.


I had class this week with Blendabilities.  One of the gals was practicing with the Cherry Cobbler set. Her image turned out so awesome I had to try the same color set.  I gold embossed the images on Whisper White CS then used the Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight sets to color it. All of the images are from the Bloom With Hope hostess set. I used Encore gold metallic ink and a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set to add the splatter effect on the background.  If you click on the image and enlarge it you can see the gold embossing.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.

Have a peaceful weekend.  Thanks for looking.
