House of Haunts Card

My thanks to "nonstopstamper" for giving me this adorable Halloween card at the First Impressions retreat on Saturday.  I wanted to share it with you because I thought the colors were so great.  It uses the batty punch, the spider web embossing folder and the House of Haunts stamp set (111574).  I believe it utilizes a masking sponging technique.  I love the way it turned out!

Beautiful Christmas Card

Hi followers:
I have a beautiful Christmas Card idea for you this morning courtesy of a swap from my upline, Julie Salva.  It consists of the elegant level 2 hostess Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog (that starts today) called Peaceful Season.  It utilizes Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Deck the Halls Designer and Vanilla cardstock.  The vanilla is cut with the Big Shot die Top Note.  The cherry cobbler is run through the Big Shot using the beautiful Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and it is all tied together with the Always Artichoke seam binding (also in the Holiday mini).  It is a light elegant ribbon.  I just love it.  The greeting is stamped in cherry cobbler and the leaves and berries and stamped using the cherry cobbler and always artichoke markers.  It is easy and beautiful - just the way I like it!!!  If you would like to host a Stampin' Up private class and earn this hostess stamp set, please visit my website at and click on "host a workshop".  You can also view the Holiday  Mini Catalog on my website and place orders there too! Enjoy and have a great Wednesday.
