Seasonally Scattered Samples

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has been good and you’ve got a great weekend planned.  I’m hoping to do a bunch of nothing.  I feel like I’ve been going and going and I’d like a few days to rest.  I’d love to take in a couple of movies, like Gone Girl and The Judge.  Both are on my list to see.  I read the book of Gone Girl and always love to see how a story plays out in a movie and The Judge just looks good, and I must admit, I’ve always had a bit of crush on Robert Downy Jr. and love seeing his movies.  Anyway… what was I supposed to be talking about?  Oh yeah…. stamping!!

Here’s a couple of cute examples using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  You can make some quick and simple cards with this set and the stamps do all the work for you as a wow focal image.

Another Bright & Beautiful

Ok, I promise this is the last one for a little while (I think…)  But, I have one more gorgeous card to show you that uses the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and Star framelits.

Bright & Beautiful goldNot to toot my own horn (well, maybe a little…) but isn’t this color combo gorgeous??  The picture really doesn’t do it justice because the star embossed card stock is our Brushed Gold card stock and you really can’t see the shimmer of it in the picture.  The green is Mossy Meadow, one of the new In Colors this year.  Now, I must admit I’m a little partial to green and gold because I attended Baylor University.  Sic Em Bears!!!    :)

Washington DC, Here we Come!!


I am so excited because as this is posting this morning, I am headed to Washington DC for the Stampin’ Up! Getaway Trip along with my husband and two of my daughters.  This is the first time we have brought any of our family along with us on one of the Stampin’ Up! incentive trips and we thought this was the perfect one to bring them on.  They have never been to Washington, so this will be a great chance for them to see some awesome historical sites.

Bright & Beautiful Cards

I know it’s barely Fall, but I’ve got a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today.  And, I’ll probably be posting quite of few of them over the next few months.  My Christmas Card Club started last month and we make 12 cards each month (4 designs), so that means I’ve been busy designing (or copying) a bunch of Christmas cards!

These two cards use the Bright & Beautiful stamp set from the Holiday Catalog along with the coordinating framelits, which you can find in our annual catalog.  I really love this stamp set!
