I recently treated myself to some new products from The Greetery. I don't think I'd have come up with the idea to make the berries into bittersweet ones, except for Marcia's example. I reinforced the fall theme by adding a plaid background.

This month's Simon Says Stamp card kit is a winner! I couldn't wait to dive in when it arrived recently! One of the joys of winter for us is seeing the beautiful red of our cardinals against the sparkling snow.
I wanted to enter another card into Pink Fresh Studios current challenge, and I'm coming in just under the wire with this one!

I've always been drawn to filigree designs, and so when I received this new Merry Filigree Card Builder, I was determined to use it for something other than Christmas, as it was intended. I mixed it with another Spellbinders product and some washi tape for today's design.

I've always been drawn to little houses, so when I saw this new die from Simon's recent release, it jumped into my cart!
I cut the die from red, kraft, and audrey blue, then mixed up my houses. Since I'd cut it 3 times, I have enough supplies now to make 3 cards. Here are 2.

Once again, Spellbinders was kind enough to send me some new goodies from their new Christmas Traditions Collection! Here are the projects I made with them.
I was excited to play with these new Holiday Florals Background glimmer plates, so much so that I made 3 cards with them!
Next I played with the Rejoice Nativity dies.

This week our theme is "Not a Card" - use your creativity to make a tag, something for the home, anything you'd like, but NOT a card! The team is playing with Tim Holtz products this week. I made a little plaque that could sit on a shelf., measuring 4 1/2" X 6 3/4".

Hello! Today I have 3 cards that I made using supplies in the Spellbinders October Card Kit called You are Stellar. These kits are new to me, but I'm learning that there's something for everyone in these sets.
Being the old quilter that I am, the first thing I open is the pad of patterned papers, and I used these as a starting point for all of my cards.

I was sent this cover die called Laurel Leaves Background Plate, and here's what I made with it first time around.

Here are the cards I made this weekend as part of World Card Making Day.
Next is my first play with The Greetery's Cozy Cup stamps and dies. They were released in 2019, but I just was able to grab them thanks to a recent Card of the Week post and sale that Betsy does every Monday. I love my coffee, but don't have many stamps to prove it, so this one can be checked off my wishlist. I thought I'd do it up in fall colors for its first outing. There's a sentiment for that in the set.
And finally, a card using just a few of the supplies in the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.

Being an old quilter, I follow quite a few quilting sites on Instagram. A few days ago, THIS popped up and I was blown away by the colors, especially the use of that pink with the usual fall colors. Here are two cards I made inspired by that quilt.
Thanks for visiting today!
