Our roses this summer were spectacular in June, but their subsequent bloomings were pretty much ruined by Japanese beetles and a bright green little worm ....it was always a race to cut them before the insects started munching. So before summer ends, here's a rose card.

When I first got this Lawn Fawn Floral Wreath, I loved it so much that I cut it out multiple times and colored it in different colorways. At that time I made 2 cards to share on my blog, and put the rest of the wreaths into my scrap basket. Today's the day to use another of them, since it's done in bright summer colors.
As before, I kept the design itself simple and let the sweet elements tell the story.

Here's another play with another of Simon Says Stamps' 3D embossing folders, this one from their September Card Kit. This time I thought I'd see what happens when you emboss a printed paper.

Can you believe August is almost over? I thought I'd better make a summer card before I go into fall mode in a few days!!

I have another new set of dies to share with you for Halloween, and it's appropriate that I post this card today, my youngest sister's birthday, as she loves that holiday!

Concord and 9th just brought out some new Turnabouts for fall, and this time they're stencils!! AND you get 2 different designs in the package! I jumped as soon as it became available at Simon, and here is my first play with them. I splurged and bought the matching stamps and dies that all work together in this Autumn Hues collection.

Here's a fun set of dies, appropriately named Haunted House, that were released earlier this month from Spellbinders. I had a blast making my little Halloween scene with them!
I'll have another cute Halloween card from the same Boo Dance Party Collection coming very soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello! Today I have a bunch of cards that I made using Spellbinders Santa Lane Mega Christmas Kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers, ephemera, cardstock, prefolded cards in 2 sizes, envelopes, a sweet stamp set, and dies - in short, everything you need to make Christmas cards, even adhesives!.
Today's first 5 cards are made from the papers, ephemera, puffy stickers, and various embellishments. I'm not going to list supplies as I usually do - just know that everything you see (except for the rectangle and circle dies) comes from the kit - it was so fun to put these together, and I have LOADS more supplies yet to play with!

Spellbinders is releasing a new collection today called Tinsel Time. I have 4 cards for you showcasing 2 glimmer plates and a stamp set from it. My cards today are holiday-related but I think you'll be able to see that these new products can be used for many occasions.
First up, the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Plate. It makes a really elegant design when paired with gold foils.

Here are 2 more cards using The Greetery Arches suite.
For the first one, I used the same exact colors as my card HERE, but this time I die-cut the design out around the outer edges and added it to a brown tone-on-tone plaid background. I was going for a fall feel this time.
