Festive Flurry Colour Combo

Hello All!

I found this lovely card on Pinterest and just had to make it.  The card I CASE'd is the "Crisp Cantaloupe" coloured one. I absolutely love the colour combinations for the Christmas season. Its so un-traditional. However, I have had not so favourable comments about the colours so I decided to make a traditonal red and green card, same layout. Which do you prefer?
I like both, but the Crisp Cantaloupe wins for me! Its going to be my Christmas card this year for family and friends!

Keep on inking!

Masculine #3

Hey Stampers! Its been awhile since I posted. I live in a part of Mid-western Ontario that was hit with an ice storm last week. We were without hydro for 3+ days... This is the 3rd card for my masculine card class. I used all the same colours as before, in the previous 2. I hope some guys will enjoy these for their birthdays! Keep Stampin' Barb

Masculine #2

Happy Thursday!

This is the second card I CASE'd for my Masculine card class. Everyone is always looking for manly cards so I felt this design fit the bill. I used dies, punches, and embossing folders to complete the look.  The Well Worn DSP (retired) speaks manly to me, in this case.

Enjoy! Happy Stamping!

Bloomin' Marvellous

Hey Stampers

This is my first official post! Here are 3 beautiful cards I CASE 'd using the "Bloomin' Marvellous" stamp set which was available in the Sale-a-bration. I did this class last night at my daughters home and the girls added their own touches to the cards. I was so impressed. Stampin' Up's "Calypso Coral" made such a "pop" of colour on the cards.

I am off to Pinterest to do some more searching. It's my fave pastime...and viewing blogs.

I have lots of learning to do regarding blogging, and as you can see, I don't have all my "buttons" added yet. That will all come.
