The Sounding Joy

Today was a quiet day with work, I did laundry and other household chores and got to make some Christmas Cards....actually I made 18 of them!!  This is a new stamp set from Stampin' Up called "The Sounding Joy".  I absolutely love this set!!!  This card is cased from the newest Stampin' Up Catalogue using all Stampin' Up materials with the exception of the Burgundy Embossed Bazzill Cardstock base and the beige cardstock.   Getting a stash of Christmas Cards...makes me happy!!  :o)

Cindy's Colour Challenge 01 - Happy Anniversary

This is the card I made for the Colour Challenge 01 with the colours brown, yellow and fushia.  I was not too sure about these colours when the lady was doing up the gift bag, but when it was finished I loved it!!!  So, I made this anniversary card for dear friends who will be celebrating their anniversary this week.  I used chocolate brown Bazzill Cardstock as the base which has been embossed with a swirl pattern, then yellow bazzill cardstock as a mat and pink bazzill with the Swiss Dot embossing pattern.  The Sentiment stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly stamped in black Versafine ink which was then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  The brown satin ribbon is from Satin Sensations which is entwined into the pink cardstock on which I used a Fiskars ribbon punch.  I also used a Stampin' Up corner rounder punch and a miscellaneous heart corner punch.  The DSP was from Dollarama and I added some clear Dewdrops for the Cherries on top of the Cupcakes and to the bottom corner of the Sentiment pop-up.  I inked the interior message paper with a sponge using Purely Pomegranate Ink from Stampin' Up.  I think I will be using this Colour Combo again in the near future!!!  Thanks for playing along!!  Blessings on ya!!

Card Creations

These are cards we created at our last Card Making get-together a few weeks ago.  Just had not gotten around to uploading them to my blog.  Went to visit friends in BC, Canada on vacation and had a wonderful time.  I will upload some photos of the mountains, rivers, bears and salmon soon.
