Miracle of Christmas

Only a few more days until Thanksgiving! I am picking up my turkey this morning and doing my fresh goods shopping and then tomorrow the cooking starts! I LOVE to cook for Thanksgiving! I've collected favorite recipes over the years and mixed them in with a few family tradition recipes from my childhood. 3 days of cooking and it's all over in about an hour. Totally worth it! :)

I've also "cooked" up something special for my newsletter subscribers! Make sure you are on my newsletter list by Tuesdayso you'll get the special email that comes out on Wednesday! You can sign up on the blog sidebar or go to our website homepage and scroll down to the bottom. 

Kimberly made this beautiful card featuring colorful snowflakes from Bring On The Snowflakes and a lovely sentiment from Lovely Blessings.

"I stamped the snowflakes from Bring on the Snowflakes around the edge of kraft cardstock using Distress Oxide inks - they really show up nice and vibrant! I added the white heat embossed sentiment from Lovely Blessings and a few snowflake "dots" (from Snowy Sayings) to finish the card."

Flurry

Vicki is here today with a shimmery card using Flurry Fri-Dies.


Those big chunky flakes can really add a lot of fun to a card. I like that they are sparkly and the bit of gold in the center makes the Sleighride sentiment pop!


Have you started your Christmas or Hanukkah cards yet?

Blessings

There are only a few leaves left on my big tree outside, holding on for dear life.
The fall color is one of the prettiest times of year in Colorado but you can't blink or you'll miss it!

Nora has a pretty card using die cut leaves from our Acorn Fri-Dies and a sentiment from the coordinating Autumn Blessings stamp set


I think the kraft card base really makes the fall color pop!
She fussy cut around the sentiment but there is a word die you could use instead in our Noel Fri-Dies.

Surprise Release!!!

I have such a great surprise for you today!
Do you remember when I introduced you to Tutu?
and you fell in love?
And then you started emailing me asking, begging, pleading..."make the fussy cutting stop! We want dies for this set!"
Remember that?
Well...

I sat down to design the dies and while I was doing it I had this idea...what if there was another stamp set to go with these dies? What if there was a ballerina with a snowflake covered tutu...like from the Nutcracker?
And then it happened...y mind started swirling on the Sugar Plum Fairy theme and a new set was born!
One of the quickest sets I've ever designed happened...you're welcome *grin*

So without further ado...your special surprise today is that 
Ballerina Fri-Dies are here! And they are available in the store right NOW!!


But wait there's more! Sugar Plum Fairy also makes its debut today, and it too is available NOW!


While you're doing your happy dance, let me delight you with the wonderful creations from the Ink Squad!

Gold leaves

Lisa is here today with a simple but stunning card that would be perfect for Thanksgiving, but would also be perfect as a thank you card! 


"To create this sweet one layer fall card I started by stamping the trunk of my tree, from the Calm and Gentle Stamp Set, with a brown ink onto Kraft Cardstock. The leaves were then embossed in gold and a sentiment was added in a darker brown ink. Since the card still felt a little too "empty" to me I went around the edges with distress ink framing the tree in. Finally, I added a twine bow to the trunk of the tree."

I think the gold embossing of the leaves really makes this card!

Friday.
Something awesome will happen on Friday!
Get excited!!

Amber Waves

Kimberly is here today with a gorgeous Thanksgiving card using our Amber Waves.


"I created the background by masking a circle and several wavy pieces of masking paper, removing one piece at a time while using Distress Inks. I was inspired by the name of the stamp set, "Amber Waves"! I stamped and heat embossed the wheat in gold, and curved the sentiment around the circle."



Amber Waves and our entire Autumn Collection are on SALE 
through November 14th!
