Well Written Stitched Be Mine Love

Here's another Valentine card, but it could be used for other occasions where you want to send someone some love! All of the pieces for this card were in my scrap box, so it came together pretty quickly. 

Colors: Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Whisper White

The card base was embossed with the now retired Brick Wall Embossing Folder. We now have the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. The bricks are smaller and random ones stick out farther. 

The flags on the sides of the hearts are leftover pieces from a past Paper Pumpkin kit, but you could use the Banner Triple Punch to make your own.

Birds Of A Feather Sending Love

Now that Christmas is done, it's time to switch gears for Valentine's Day! I don't do a lot of Valentine's since I don't have a kid in school, but it's still fun to make them! Here's one made with my favorite Birds Of A Feather stamp set! I love these birds and am so sad they're only available until the end of the Holiday Catalog, which is January 2nd. If you like them but haven't gotten them yet, make sure you order them before they're gone!

Colors: Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Soft Suede, Whisper White

Here are all four of my Birds Of A Feather cards for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day. You can click on the first three holidays to see the posts for those cards.

Use It Up Embossed Color Block Hello

Here's another "cleaning out the scrap box" card I made recently! The "hello" piece was from a past Paper Pumpkin kit and I picked colors of card stock that matched the design around it. Each piece is embossed with a different folder.

Colors: Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Whisper White

The #D Embossing Folder Plate really makes it easier to use the new 3D embossing folders! I know a lot of people are trying to figure out shims but it is worth it to buy this plate!

Merry Moose Rustic Designer Series Paper Merry Christmoose

The last of my Christmas cards for 2019! These are made with the awesome Merry Moose stamp set and Moose Punch. The Moose Punch is sold out, but it and the stamp set will be back for the 2020 Holiday Catalog! I combined them with some really old retired Designer Series Paper that I was hoarding. It was so old it had the © Stampin' Up! on it! 

Same basic design, just different papers which determined the colors

I stamped a few moose on Early Espresso, cut the antlers off, then layered it on a moose stamped on Crumb Cake.

A few moose have scarves instead of hats

Most of the moose are stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White

Gotta love plaid! The trees are stamped in Mossy Meadow

I used the Stamparatus to stamp "merry christmoose"

I fussy cut all of the santa hats and scarves!

Colors: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede, Whisper White

This is the inside

having fun with some of the Santa Hats I cut out!
