Along with the adorable fabric pumpkins I made for my mom, I wanted to give her another little surprise to brighten up her harvest table. My friend Alyssa at mommy, etc came up with this adorable turkey that I cased. Her original turkey was a card, I just omitted the card and stuck the turkey straight into her acorn place card holders. Needless to say she absolutely loved them!

Here is a card I made for this weeks Dynamic dous #29 challenge. The challenge was to use Basic black and Marina mist, and an optional snowman theme. I did a punch art snowman that I cased from my friend Alyssa at mommy, etc. I also incorporated a few different embossing folders to give the card a lot of texture. I hope you like it!

So I had a bunch of the Stampin' Up! Orchard harvest fabric from the holiday catalog and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I also kept seeing these fabric pumpkins on pinterest, at the fabric store, and in magazines. Sooooo, I finally put it together and decided to make fabric pumkins out of this super cute fabric. I LOVE the way they turned out and they were pretty simple to make (there are tons of tutorials online). I ended up giving them to my mom who is a thanksgiving fanatic and loves to decorate her house with all things harvest!

I have been wanting to use this stamp set forever. It's the Pleasant Poppies stamp from Stampin' Up!. When I originally purchased this stamp I didn't realize it was a large background stamp. I don't usually use background stamps, hence why it's been sitting on my stamp shelf ever since. When I saw this weeks Black Tie Friday's challenge #10 (black and white, with a cutout) I immediately thought of this stamp set. It has beautiful clean lines and looks great stamped in black. I have a good customer who is retiring and I thought it would make a good reirement card too.

Here is a card I made recently as a sample to display. I originally saw a similar card to this on pinterest, I used the inpiration and ran with it. I really wanted to highlight this awesome paper, Stampin' Up! International Bazaar. I love all the patterns in this paper, so vibrant and versitle. I love this card because it's so simple and quick to make and any sentiment can be placed in the middle, making it a good go-to card in a pinch.

Here is a card I made and I'm entering in the mojo monday 266 blog contest. The layout is super cute and I thought I would turn it into a christmas card. I used the new Stampin' Up! Snow Festival DSP from the holiday catalog and the new woodgrain embossing folder for the soft suede piece in the back. I am totally loving the new snowflake die as well. For this card I used vellum for a subtle frosty snowflake touch. I also made a bow banner for the bottom piece which I have been playing around with lately, I'm thinking of making more of these paper bows for the tops of my christmas presents. ;)

Thanks to my bestie Alyssa at mommyetc.blogspot.com, I have decided to give card challenges a try. I have always been super overwhelmed with the idea of them for some strange reason but she totally talked me into it and I realized it's kinda fun ;) I did the Black Tie Friday's #8 challenge. I had to pick one thing from each row in the grid. I chose square card, color green, and something metal. I cased the layout from a mojo Monday sketch and used the new Stampin' Up! natural composition specialty paper to give it a little texture. Instead of traditional ribbon accent, I used the Stampin' Up! Orchard Harvest Designer fabric, which has a great green pattern. I also used the antique brads as my something metal.

Here is a card I made for the upcoming holiday season. I got the card layout inspiration from a mojo mondays sketch. I used Stampin' Up! Orchard Harvest DSP from the Holiday Catalog and the "So Grateful" sentiment came from the Apothecary Art stamp set. In coordinating colors I cut out three different sizes of the Labels collections framelets and layered them up behind the sentiment.
