Birthday Star

Here are a couple of very fast and easy cards you can make in no time at all.

The base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock so it can be nice and sturdy.

Next, Real Red 5 1/4" x 4" and embossed with the Large Polka Dots Embossing Folder (133739).

The Stars are cut with the Stars Framelits (133723).  The large star is made with the two largest framelits at the same time.  The smaller star is made with the next second and third framelits.  I used Daffodil Delight. 

Although you can't really see it very well, the small star is cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (135315). 

The ribbon is Pacific Point 3/8" Stitched Satin (138427).  I think this color is just so pretty and goes well with the Real Red and Daffodil Delight.

Cards from Tina's Workshop

I promised to share pictures from Saturday's workshop, so here they are.  You've seen mine earlier, but I am posting mine with the girls cards.

I love it when they change it up and make it their own.

Here is mine:

This is Patti's:

This one is Linda's:

This one is Kristi's

My Version of the Santa Card:

Patti's Card - she chose the word "peace"

 There should have been more pictures, but I get so busy visiting with the girls that I kind of forget!  :)

Thank you for looking in today!  It's another MONDAY!

Saturday's Workshop

Just a quick post today of Saturday's workshop with the girls!  My favorite days are spent stamping with my friends and customers.

Tina had her house all decked out for halloween and we enjoyed a great time together making the adorable pumpkin I posted earlier.  If you missed it, you can see it HERE

We also made two Christmas cards, that I will post a couple that I managed to get pictures of tomorrow.  

In the meantime, you can see my versions HERE and HERE.

Thank you Tina for a Fabulous Party and for even bringing in two new stampers to the group!  Welcome to Amanda and Morgan!

This was our mascot for the day, Riley.  Isn't that just the cutest little face you've seen in a long time!  He was adorable!

Thank you for looking in today. Have a Blessed Sunday!

Home For Christmas with Santa

Of all the Christmas paper I've seen over the years, I think this has to be one of my very favorites.  There are Santa's and Reindeer, Old Fashioned Christmas trees and beautiful Ornaments.

For today's card I did a fussy cut of Santa and the Tree as well as some gifts to go around the tree.

The Hearth and Home Thinlits dies are so perfect for so many things.  I just love the look they give.  I also found another way to work with them which I will try to play with this weekend and show to you.

This card has a base of Real Red - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4.
The wall is Very Vanilla stamped with the Hardwood Stamp using Crumb Cake ink.
Inside, Santa and the Tree are adhered to a Very Vanilla piece of cardstock 3 3/8" x 2 1/2".
I stamped the flower box with the mantle stamp from Festive Fireplace.

I thought the "jolly" from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies was a perfect touch, since Santa is so "Jolly" .

I popped up the window with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it a little pop.

Thank you for looking in!  I'm so happy it's finally Friday!
