I love these colors together. I embossed snowflakes on the teal piece with clear embossing powder and I embossed a piece of watercolor paper with the same snowflakes in white. I created a wash using the teal and some matching green. I really liked this look. So many ways to use it.

One of my card making groups suggested that we make a card along with a kit to make another as our Christmas gift exchange. As I added elements to the card front, I realized that I had not left space for a greeting. I pulled out the slider channel builder from MFT and hid the greeting under the card front! I did put the channel onto the card in the kit so it would be easy to duplicate!

This is really a fun color combination. It matches a plaid paper from the Christmas collection. I love the unusual pink and blue with the traditional red and green. I paper pieced the elf's tunic with a piece of that plaid. I used the large dot cover up and cut out the pink, blue and green along with a little white. I replaced some of the red dots with the other colors as a background for the elf and the greeting.

This is my contribution for MFT's "Thankful for You" week. I stamped the Funky Flowers with versamark and then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder onto watercolor paper. I cut the sentiment from MFT's gold shine paper. I have so much to be grateful in my life that I am sure this card will have a wonderful home.

This sketch proved to take a lot of thought to make it into a sympathy card. I love the way it turned out. The difficulty for me was the accent strip on the side. Nothing seemed to work until I asked my husband's opinion. He liked the look of the simple stripe with white and just one color. I matched the stripe with the ink on the flower and it came together. I can't wait for the sympathy greetings to become available.
I have been needing way too many sympathy cards lately. I decided to see if sketches would help me to come up with some different ones. I wasn't sure about this one, but when I thought about adding some flowers but keeping the color scheme soft, it came together.

We attended a wedding over the weekend of some wonderful people. They asked that no presents be given, so I thought a special card was called for. It is a design from Dreaming Tree. I used sentiments from MFT and some gems for accents I think they will like it.

I attended a wedding in Cincinnati the last weekend in June and then a week in MD visiting cousins. I made no cards and was ready to get back to my routine. I just love the layout of this sketch and decided on a monochromatic color scheme. I didn't start out to make a Christmas Card, but it just came together that way. My husband loves it and he is a rather traditional guy. I guess he likes "Blue Christmas" as well!

I love this type of card. I attended 2 stamp conventions and found some interesting dies. I love this slider one and also the cupcake. I was looking for something small to fit in the slider space and to my delight, MFT's Pure Innocence birthday girl had a sentiment that said, "Happy Cupcake Day". How perfect is that?!
When I first got my Misti, I practiced stamping backgrounds. I found this one in my stash and just knew it would be perfect for the large space on this card. It is the mini hexies and I think it adds a little sophistication to the look. My pop of color comes from the Painted Prints Smitten paper pack. The flowers are from the new kit along with greenery from various sets. When I am cutting greenery, I usually cut all that I can from a piece of paper and store them in a container until I need them.

While on vacation this summer, I was able to attend Stampaway USA. A company there had many dies to make the fancy fold cards much easier. I got the one to make the slider card and used it to teach this card to my church group. They all appreciated the ease with which the card went together.
