Pocket Silhouettes

I love this stamp set and definitely don't use it as often as I should. I also really like the way Pretty in Pink looks with Chocolate Chip. I used the Pretty in Pink DSP, Chocolate Chip grograin ribbon, and the Scallop Trim punch.

Tis the Season

I am certainly enjoying this wonderful Fall weather. Steven and I have already ventured to Tanner's Orchard, started our cool walks, watched the farmers harvesting corn, visited the farmer's market, and have plans to go to Wildlife and the zoo next week. With all these fall activities it has put me in the mood to make some Christmas cards. I am getting the cards ready for my annual Christmas Card making party, however these will not be including in the day. Those cards will hopefully be posted next week.
I can't decide whether I like this card better in Garden Green or Real Red. What do you guys think? This is using the retired Christmas DSP from last year Merry Moments along with Delightful Decorations stamp set. The first one features the stamp set Four the Holidays, while the later one is Christmas Greetings.

Many of you were able to make a card similar to the one featured below at a workshop a month ago. It uses the current Jolly Holiday DSP, along with the ornament punch, an embossing folder (which the name has escaped me), and My Digital Studio.

More Razzle Dazzle

I don't know about you guys, but I sure do have a collection of DSP that I, for some reason, decide to save. Well, tonight after the Little Man went to bed I opened the drawer and decided to use some. I still had the Razzle Dazzle images out so I made some more cards using them.
Here is Dusty Durango and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. I used the scallop oval and large oval punch for the Teeny Tiny Messages message. I think that is my number one used stamp set.

This card uses Crushed Curry, which I hated to see get retired, along with strips of several different pieces of paper from the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. The image is bordered by a small piece of Rich Razzleberry.

An Oldy But a Goody

At the end of September I am participating in Tailwaggers Day, a benefit to raise money for TAPS, so it only seemed fitting to have a couple animal cards. Here is a card I made years ago that I remade for the show. It uses the retired stamp set, Yappy Day with Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, and Whisper White cardstock.

Razzle Dazzle

Here are two cards playing with the stamp set Razzle Dazzle. The first used the polkadot embossing folder and basic black satin ribbon with Whimical Words stamp set. The second card is in Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the scallop edge punch. The "thinking of you" is from Three Little Words.
