Fab Friday #32 and SSI Friday Favorites

Fab Friday #32 and SSI
Happy Black Friday!  Are you stuffed and sitting at home?  Or are you braving the crowds and scoring some good deals?  I can tell you that I am not braving the stores... I am enjoying family in West Palm Beach!  
This week we have a fun combo for you (and quite popular too!).  Check it out:
I used the exclusive Stampin' Up! Hostess Set "Warmth and Wonder" (ask me how you can earn it yourself!!).  I just LOVE the tree!
Do you love the reindeer as well?  It's part of the same set!

To make this post even more exciting, I have added a "Friday Favorite" from our Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog!  

What is my favorite?  It's the Seasons of Style Designer Series Paper!  It's the pretty candy cane strip paper in the background....
The stamp set I used is new, it's called "Lovely as a Tree" and I have a feeling you are going to be seeing more of it.  The red dots are made using a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker.
As you can see I decorated the inside of the card and lined the envelope.
And don't forget stamping the outside of the envelope!

See you tomorrow for more stampin' in the sun!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays... mostly because I have so much to be thankful for!  My health, Marc, my family, my job, Arnie, the beach, laughter... the list can go on and on!  I made this set of cards to give a friend who helped me out at work.
This is a picture of the box with the belly band around it... super cute, right?
Check out my blog tomorrow as I have TWO posts for you... and you don't want to miss them!

Ornament Card

Ornament Card
I needed another card for my December 8th class and this is the one I picked!  I know it looks "red" in the picture but it's actually Raspberry Ripple.  I love the snowflake embossing and often forget about it, so I am glad I remembered it!

As you can see on the left, I stamped the outside of my envelope!  Doesn't that embossing folder give a deep impression?
Don't forget the envelope liner!  It's the BEST part of making your own cards, making sure the envelope matches perfectly!

Do you love this card?  You can join us on December 9th from 1-5pm to make this card and 4 others!  Email me for more information!  See you tomorrow for a thankful post!

A Dozen Thoughts with Beautiful Wings Butterflies

Just Because...
Nobody said everything had to be perfect... and when I made this card, I decided I wasn't going to redo it because of a little ink on the edge.  But I must admit, it still bothers me a bit!  

I made this card as a freebie for my customers who bought a Big Shot last month.  Are you wondering where the card stock is from?  It's the Naturals Ivory and it's one of my new favorites!  I used the Lattice Bigz Die in the background in the same color.  It makes it look very pretty.  I then cut out butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die.  Did you know that an embosslit does two things?  It embosses and cuts the card stock!  I also made sure to line the envelope using the Envelope Liner Die... who doesn't love that look?  I used the 2013-2015 DSP Stack in Crisp Cataloupe!

Do you love the colors?  I used the 2013-2015 In-Colors: Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Costal Cabana.  I used "A Dozen Thoughts" for the sentiement... and you could add a bow to the edge, or some rhinestones to cover up the "mistake" however I wanted you to see that I am not perfect!

Beautiful Wings Embosslit #118138 / $11.95
Lattice Bigz Die #115958/ $21.95
A Dozen Thoughts #131059 (Clear Mount) / $18.95
