Great Minds Think Alike

I saw this card on the Stampin’ Connection and just fell in love with it.  This is the only stamp in the Serene Silhouette collection that I had not used yet.  I made up the card and used it as the Sneak Peak on my April Stamp Camp announcement.

A few weeks later, I went to a Card Buffet hosted by my peeps, Judy Sumner, Marla Schack & Mary Taylor.  They also had this card as one of their projects. 

This just proves that great minds think alike.

The simple masking technique creates a versatile card suitable for many occassions.

A Perfect Day

This was a quick and easy card to put together.  The vivid colors of the Sycamore Street Desiger Series Paper and the sentiment is what makes it outstanding.  Maybe I should send it to myself.  I wouldn’t mind having a perfect day.

My 2012 Christmas Card

This is the Christmas Card I chose to make for my Customers.  I really like way the moonlighting (burnishing) technique that gives the appearance of the a spotlight shining on the ornament. The diagonal embossing on this sample was from a retired Textured Plate.  I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to emboss the cards I mailed.   I mailed every one of them before I took a picture.
