This card front uses the same trees from the last post, but with a totally different result. I love how it captures the silent stillness of a cold night. I owe credit to Michelle Zindorf for the idea. She is an AMAZING stamp artist; check out her work here. A-MA-ZINGGG!

For my birthday, my sweet husband gave me a wonderful set of watercolor pencils to play with. YES! They are so much fun! :) The textured brown piece behind the bird image is made by running a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock through my Cuttlebug embossing machine, using Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice embossing folder. I love the basketweave texture it gives. Along with the twisted fibers in the corner, it reminds me of a bird's nesting material.

HOW FUN IS THIS?! Check it out; you pull out the cute insert and there is a place to either write a message or adhere a gift card for someone to enjoy. How cute is that?! It's not my idea; I got the inspiration from Andrea Walford at Papercrafter's Library.
I love her work because she pays such attention to detail. SO CUTE!
I used the Play Date designer paper from Stampin' Up! along with some red satin ribbon from Michael's, and I love how it turned out. A great "thank you" gift for those parent volunteers in your classroom - if you're a teacher like me! :)
It's that time of year again, and this time I am determined to do some fun Valentine's Day projects! This one is super easy and quick, which is all the better for me because report cards are due soon and I am WAY behind! Just some little Hershey's nuggets wrapped in Avery address labels that have been stamped with the "It's a Wrap Holidays" stamp set. FUN! Now I'm off to get groceries... can't sit behind my stamping table all day, I guess!
