SNOW!

Well, no snow here, yet. Just a little blowing and rain thanks to Hurricane Sandy. But today's page is all about snow!
I had one really good picture of the trees covered in hoar frost and it seemed crazy to devote a whole page to it. So instead I used it for my page background by using a photo box that was 12"x12". The other 2 pictures were from another day in the same month and are highlighted with the frames in the Downtown Grunge Designer Kit. The Perfect Label punch for my journaling was coloured in Whisper White and then I changed the opacity to 60% to create a frosted look. I did the same thing with the flags used for the page's title.

Make sure to take advantage of the FREE downloads and everything that is happening this week, check out this blog post about all the details: http://fromwhereistamp.blogspot.ca/2012/10/celebrating-digital-scapbooking-day-all.html

    Embossed Leaves

    I love the Wonderfall stamp set that matches the Autumn Accent Bigz die. But using just the die and an assortment of Embossing Folders is really cool too! To adhere the Champagne Glass Glitter I used the Tombow Multi-purpose glue with it's fine tip to draw a line of glue along the scallops, then sprinkled the glass glitter on the glue - making sure to shake off the excess! I did use the heat tool to dry the glue quicker.

    Supplies
    Stamps: Sweet Essentials
    Ink: Cherry Cobbler
    Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Garden Green, More Mustard, Early Espresso, Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper
    Accessories: Champagne Glass Glitter, Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot, Autumn Accents Bigz die, Large Scallop Edgelit, Textured Embossing Folders: Woodgrain, Vintage Wallpaper, Square Lattice, Chevron

    Wishing Poppies!

    Had to break out the Silver Glimmer paper. It's great to add a little dazzel to any card! To make today's card I embossed the poppy image in Pewter Embossing Powder onto First Edition Designer Paper, then used the Label Framelit to trim the image. Behind that is a piece of Certainly Celery that was run through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and a strip of the Silver Glimmer Paper.

    I still have some spaces left on Sunday Oct 28th for the Christmas Card Stamp Camp at 1pm. If you are interested please contact me! Not able to make it this Sunday? Join me on Saturday November 17th or book your own date to make them with your friends and family!

    Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, Sweet Essentials
    Ink: Versamark, Lucky Limeade, Regal Rose
    Paper: Certaintly Celery, Lucky Limeade, First Edition Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla, Silver Glimmer Paper

    5 years!

    Received my 5 year pin from Stampin' Up! in the mail today! Wow, has it really been that long already? Thanks Stampin' Up! My 5 year anniversary was in September and I forgot until I opened a small envelope with the pin and letter. Love getting happy mail!

    Have the leaves changed where you live? I love glancing at the different colours when I drive into work. But I hope the snow doesn't fall too soon! I took inspiration from those leaves for today's card. For the leaves I find it is easier to cut them out with the Big Shot and Autumn Accents die, then stamp them. I always make sure to die cut a few extra leaves just in case!

    Supplies
    Stamps: Wonderfall, Teeny Tiny Wishes
    Ink: Gumball Green, Cajun Craze
    Paper: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper
    Accessories: Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Word Window Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot, Autumn Accents Bigz die, Woodgrain Impressions Embossing Folder

    Christmas Cheer!

    A cute and sweet smelling card for today: I used the Sugar and Spice embossing powder from the Holiday Catalogue so that this gingerbread guy smells like he's fresh from the oven! First I stamped the image in Versamark and then into Soft Suede before stamping on Very Vanilla card stock. And the even better part? I did not have to cut this delicious guy out by hand - there is a very cool new Holiday Collection framelits to cut this guy out!

    I should have started making my Christmas cards last month, it's already the middle of October! Who else is with me? Join me on Sunday October 28th for 1pm at my home to make 10 cards. Cost is $20 and it includes envelopes. RSVP here!

    Supplies
    Stamps: Perfectly Preserved, Scentsational Season, Curly Cute
    Ink: Soft Suede, Versamark
    Paper: Brights Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
