For this sample I stamped Whisper White Craft Ink onto Basic Black Card stock. Then I embossed it with Iridescent Ice to try & get the snowy effect onto it. Then it is layered on Real Red Card Stock & embellished with Red Gingham Ribbon. I also stamped the "Happiness is a Journey not a Destination" saying in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Garden Green Card stock & embossed it with Iridescent Ice. and layered that onto the Whisper White Card Stock that I stamped with the Polka Dot Background stamp in Real Red.
I would really love to hear what you think of this card. I am not quite sure what I think of it. Do you think it is missing something??
Thanks for looking & would love to hear your opinions!!

My Aunt Violet is moving to Arizona next week. She has always been more like a sister than an Aunt. I will miss her alot. My son, Jordan, is also very fond of her & is having a hard time with this. Her daughter (who is Jordan's Godmother) moved to Phoenix a few years ago. She is pregnant and due in December. So, Violet is moving closer to help her out & just be closer to them.
I made this card to give her this weekend when we are there to say good-bye to her. Green is one of her favorite colors. The layout and colors are different challenges that I thought I'd participate in.
I stamped the "grass" on the Kiwi Kiss paper with Versamark. To get the multi-colors on the flowers I used Sponge Daubers. The added a little sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds
The recipe for the card is as follows:
Stamps: Inspired by Nature & Heard from the Heart.
Paper: Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss & Chocolate Chip
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Versamark & Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Dazzling Diamonds

My friend Shelley stopped by last night so we could figure out her Christmas Card for this year. She has had her eye on the SU Stamp Set "Christmas Classics" She likes to make cards that require a little extra work (putzy). So this is what we came up with.
We tried the new Scallop Edge Medallion & layered the ornaments that we cut out on the top. We also thought the Riding Hood Red Medallion got lost a little so we layered Whisper White behind it. After we took the picture, we decided it needed some Dazzling Diamonds on the ornaments to make the "pop" even more.
Stamps: Christmas Classics
Ink: Garden Green, Riding Hood Red & Tangerine Tango
Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Word Window Punch, Riding Hood Red Tafetta Ribbon & Silver Elastic Cord

Paper: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss & Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black & Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Circle Scallop Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch & 1-1/4" Circle Punch
After I took the picture my son wanted me to add "wiggly" eyes so we added them to the pumpkin at the top. VERY CUTE!!

I recently signed up for a Mini Catalog swap. The first card I made was the Cardinal with Pink Pirouette. I like it but thought I wanted to see what the new Baha Breeze looked like. I couldn't decide which one I liked better so I am sending half Baha Breeze & half Pink Pirouette. I hope they enjoy them!!
I got the layout over at SCS from a Sketch challege (SC193) about a month ago. I have used it for this card and a Get Well Card that I made the week of the challenge.

Here is a little photo book that I did for a class recently. I got the photobooks at a clearance store but I seen them at Walmart recently for $1. I removed the "preprinted" papers & filled in with my own. I was trying to get the flowers to look like Gerber Daisies so I cut slits into the indents on the scallop punch to make the petals on the flowers. I ran the middles thru the crimper for some added texture. To make the leaves, I folded the oval punch in half & then ran it thru the crimper, opened it up to use as a leaf.
We had a baby shower for my cousin over the weekend & this was one of the prizes.
As always, all images are Copywrite Stampin' UP!
Recipe for the photo album:
Paper: Garden Green, Whispter White, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun & Chocolate Chip.
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Circle Scallop Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Small Oval, Crimper, Summer Sun Stampin' Write Marker
