Christmas Pine

Yep, I'm already working on Christmas cards. Working on Christmas cards in September seems early to me too, but I couldn't resist when I received this set. Living in the mountains, I just love this Ornamental Pine stamp. This great design was inspired by Dawn Olchefske's card.

Stamps - Ornamental Pine
Card Stock - Very Vanilla
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede

Love You Always

The house is still under construction, but we are staying here for a few days. So, of course, I am taking advantage. Have I said how much I really like the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set? It's perfect for making cards that have that "not too feminine" look, which is what I was going for when I made this set of cards.

Stamps - Gorgeous Grunge, Something to Say
Card Stock - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Very Vanilla
Ink - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Jet Black StazOn
Punches - 1" Square, Postage Stamp

Caring Thoughts by the Tide

This is my take on a card done by Ann Schach at The Stampin' Schach. This is one of those stamp sets that I really wanted, but didn't purchase because I had a similar set "By the Seashore." After seeing Ann's card, I lost all resolve and bought "By the Tide!"

Stamps - By the Tide, Flamingo Lingo
Card Stock - Island Indigo, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Ink - Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi
Accessories - Bitty Banners Framelits, Coastal Cabana Blendabilities (for coloring the Rhinestones), Dazzling Diamonds, Hemp Twine (ret.)
