Hi Stampers!

Today my card share for you is another beautiful swap card. I received this card from Kimberly Schafer. I just love how Kimberly chose the color combination of Stampin' Up!'s Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Tip Top Taupe and Whisper White. Her Trees and the sentiment comes from Winter Wonderland Stamp Set that is from the New Holiday Catalog.
She stamped the greeting on Vellum Card Stock using Cherry Cobbler ink. She chose to emboss her background using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder that is also in the Holiday Catalog - definitely on my next order.

Come back and visit me again here and on my facebook page. I will be sharing more of  the cards that I received from a recent holiday card swap.

Here is the full list of supplies for this card:

Cheer All Year

Hi Stampers!

Can you believe that it's already September?....The year is almost over. My boys went back to school in the ending of July while most other children around the United States are returning this week. I always think that once school starts, it's Halloween, then Thanksgiving and  then Christmas. Boom, the year is done.....We need to figure out how to stop time from racing past us.

Yesterday was the launch of the Stampin' Up!'a Holiday Catalog and that was such an exciting day!! Remember, if you want a copy of the catalog, drop me a quick email at and I will send you one.

Today, I wanted to share this really cute Halloween card that I received from Brynn! She featured Stampin' Up!'s  Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and her greeting came from the Cheer All Year Photopolymer Stamp Set. I loved how she used the Spider Web Dollie and a strip cut from Black Glimmer Paper and accented it with the Metallic Foil Doilies that is found in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog. Such a cool combination!!!

Here is a picture of the inside of the card...I love how she stamped the spider in the corner just to add that little touch to make it all complete.

Cozy Christmas and Heat Embossed Six Sayings

Hi Stampers!

Aloha Monday everybody!!......Well, it looks like we dodged another one...another hurricane that is. Hurricane Ignacio is heading in a North North West direction that looks like it will pass north of the Island sometime between today and tomorrow. However, we still to keep our eye on Hurricane Jimena, a category 5 storm a little west of Hurricane Ignacio. Right now, there is three hurricanes roaming the possibly a fourth..Never seen that in my entire lifetime!

Just one more day till the products from the NEW Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is available to the public - soooooo exciting!!!! So many cool products to make some amazing projects!!!

Today, I get to share with you a card that I made for a team swap. For this card I stamped the image on Whisper White card stock using Early Espresso. I cut the image out using my paper snips and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for a snowy effect. . The background was embossed with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder. I accented my focal image with the Tea Lace Doilies and Silver Glimmer Paper.  For the greeting, I used the "Merry Christmas To You and Yours" stamp from the Hostess Stamp Set - Six Sayings. I first stamped the greeting with Versa Mark Ink and heat embossed with Silver embossing powder (My favorite technique).

Lots of Joy Christmas Card

Hi Stampers!

It's another hot and humid day here in Hawaii. Hurricanes Ignacio and Jimean are both heading for our state. It's been a very busy hurricane season this year and we were fortunate to be able to dodge them so far. Hurricane Ignacio is target to come pretty close to Hawaii island passing closing to the Hamakua coastline. We've got our water and food supply set, batteries, tarp, first aid all in place. Today we will do our run to Kamuela to fill our propane tanks, pick up medications and pet food then,.........we wait out the storm-(sigh). On a happy note.....I have my stamps, ink and paper to keep me busy during the rough weather!!!

Today's card share is a Christmas card I made for my friend Cynthia Umbach's card swap in July. She has an awesome card swap and does an amazing job hosting it.  In fact, I've been participating in her swaps since my very beginning of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Five year!!! Loved every swap!! For this card, I am using Lot's of Joy Stamp Set that is located in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog and the greeting comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. I paired it up with the NEW In-Color, Cucumber Crush. I am feeling that Cucumber Crush is my "go to" Christmas green this year. I love it's hue and it's crisp look! I embossed the background with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder just to add some pizzazz.

Home For Christmas and Cozy Christmas

Hi Stampers!

Let the countdown begin!!.....In just 6 more days, products from the newly released Holiday Catalog will be available to everyone!!! Wahoo!!! There are some really nice products in this years catalog---I mean REALLY NICE!!

Today, I am sharing with you another card I made using Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper and Cozy Christmas Stamp Set. I had so much fun making this card. As I was creating, I have to admit I was humming away to some Christmas songs and there is one in particular that kept coming to mind. Can you guess which one? I am also loving this color combination of Pool Party, Real Red, Mossy Meadow and Whisper White. Normally, I would stick to the traditional Red/Green combo....I did decide to get out of my comfort box and play with the color.....I do think this is quite a stunning combination for Christmas.

Hope you enjoyed my share for today!

Here are the supplies for this card:
